From Roxanne R:
I have a question. Why did Barr give the ok for Mueller to make a statement? And do you think he knew what Mueller was going to say? If his speaking was against department policy, why was it allowed?
From the Gov:
Since Mueller was reportedly leaving the Justice Department that very day and (wisely) heading into private life, I don’t know that he got the “okay” from anyone to make that statement. As far as I know, he just did it. (This is a great question and if someone has more specific information, please let me know.) And, no, I don’t think Barr knew what Mueller was going to say, especially since Mueller gave a reason for not specifying indictable "obstruction" counts that was completely at variance with what he'd said to Barr, three times and in front of witnesses yet.


With gratitude,

Mike Huckabee

"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

With summer officially underway, we have a sizzling new episode of “Huckabee” for you on TBN tonight.  My friend Shannon Bream of Fox News will drop by to talk about her terrific new book and the stories rocking this week’s news.  We’ll talk to one of the world’s most influential evangelists, Luis Palau…enjoy the music of country superstar Rodney Atkins…check out some crazy news “In Case You Missed It”…and maybe the most unusual thing you’ll ever see on my show: metal guitar icon Brian “Head” Welch of the megagroup Korn and his daughter Jennea will discuss how they turned to God to overcome their addictions and rebuild their lives and relationship.  Brian will even do a little guitar shredding with the help of a special mystery guest bassist I’ll bet you never imagined you’d hear playing a Korn song!  This is one for the history books! 

All this and a lot more surprises are coming your way tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, only on TBN. To find your local TBN channel and stream previous episodes online, visit



CORRECTION (WITH LINK):  A Sorrowful Fare-thee-well to Music Icon Leon Redbone

By Pat Reeder, Staff Writer

As the resident pop culture guru at “Huckabee,” it falls to me to write the obituaries of showbiz figures.  Some sad ones have come along recently, like Doris Day and Tim Conway, but no loss has felt as painful and personal as the news that Leon Redbone has passed away after a long illness that forced him to retire from performing in 2015. 

My wife, fellow “Huckabee” writer Laura Ainsworth, is also a retro jazz singer known for reinventing forgotten old songs that we unearth from the dustbin of history.  That was largely inspired by our mutual lifelong love of Leon Redbone. For us, gift unwrapping on Christmas morning can’t begin until his album “Christmas Island” is on the stereo.



Virginia Beach Shooting

By Mike Huckabee

Friday, there was a horrible shooting in Virginia Beach, where a disgruntled city engineer entered a public works building and opened fire on the staffers.  He was killed by police. Twelve victims have died and at least four were injured and underwent treatment.  This is a developing story, so watch the news for more and please keep the victims and their families in your prayers.

Latest abortion related idiocy

By Mike Huckabee

Discussion topic for the weekend: What is the single most defining characteristic of the pro-abortion lobby, its blatant hypocrisy…

...Or its bottomless ability to deny reality by inventing ridiculous euphemisms to cover up what it’s really about?

Sidenote to the New York Times editors: yes, the baby (or as you call it, the “fetus”) does have a heart. Do you?


Hillary to speak at Cybersecurity Conference

By Mike Huckabee

NOT From The Babylon Bee: "Hillary Clinton to Speak at Cybersecurity Conference"

She's finally found something she's competent at: being a professional "bad example."  This is why it's impossible to write topical jokes these days: they come true before you can tell them.  This is like Bill Clinton speaking at a Promise Keepers conference. 


Tariff Dispute Update

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s an update on the tariff dispute between President Trump and Mexico, with Trump threatening to raise tariffs on imports from Mexico unless it takes action to stem the flood of illegal entrants crossing into the US from Mexico.  One bit of advice for Mexico’s President: lecturing us that it’s a “fallacy” for the American President to want to put America’s interests first is probably not an effective persuasion tactic.  At least, not with this President.

I know these sorts of confrontations give some people the vapors, especially when they send the Dow on a roller coaster ride…and I’m no fan of tariffs myself, which tend to set off trade wars that harm consumers and businesses on both sides.  But we have allowed the US to be rolled over for too long, and a corrective is needed.  And it appears that only alternatives are terrible liberal plans like the massive immigration reform proposed this week by “Beto” O’Rourke. It involves a lot of amnesty, open borders and spending tons of our money to make Central America so prosperous that people won’t feel like leaving.  Sure, nothing works better than expensive, forced nation-building.

Central American nations already have abundant resources, hard-working people and climates better than many far more prosperous northern US states.  It isn’t our responsibility to remake their nations in our image.  If they want what we have, it’s within their power without their citizens having to flood across our borders illegally. 

We don’t need to provide other nations with a free banquet at our taxpayers’ expense.  All we should feel obligated to do is to loan them the recipe and let them follow it for themselves.  And here it is:
