Today's Commentary --- Clearer every day: Bruce Ohr's notes show illegitimacy of "Russia" probe -- "Humanized mice" and aborted fetuses: a story worthy of Stephen King -- Government spending in the 4th quarter -- Taking down Trump -- Catcalling?!? -- Key detail omitted -- Evening Edition - Daily Verse


If Trump’s lawyers seem to be taking a much tougher stand lately, it’s probably because almost every day, something new comes out about what we now know was a plot to prevent Trump from being elected, and, later, to stop him from functioning as President. The real “Russia” news isn’t coming from Robert Mueller --- the worst crime of all may be his unbelievable skill in the art of selective prosecution --- but from intrepid reporters such as John Solomon and Sara A. Carter, undeterred watchdog groups such as Judicial Watch, determined Republicans on congressional committees, and attorneys such as Gregg Jarrett and Alan Dershowitz who aren’t afraid to speak out about what’s happening to justice in this country.

It seems everything has been turned on its head. The institutions we’ve historically trusted to investigate and enforce the law equally have shown themselves to be unworthy of that trust. This isn’t just the rant of someone blindly coming to the defense of the President –- it’s based on legal principles and hard evidence, more and more all the time. The evidence has been painfully slow in coming because it concerns the very people who would normally be CONDUCTING such an investigation.

Ohio 12 Update

By Mike Huckabee

Update on Ohio’s 12th District Congressional race: We won’t know for sure who won for at least a couple of weeks. Republican Troy Balderson’s margin of victory was 1754 votes, but there are nearly 8500 absentee and provisional votes still to count, and under state law, they have to wait 11 days to start counting them.

Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) put so much importance on this one House race as an indicator of a “blue wave” in November that the wait is going to be agonizing for them, which is, well, just delightful. Maybe it’s God’s way of telling them to stop being so obsessed with politics and refocus their priorities. If so, it’s an urgently-needed message that will likely be ignored because they’re already working themselves into a frenzy of frustration that makes their previous Trump Derangement Syndrome fits look as laid back as a Perry Como song.



Government spending in the 4th quarter

By Mike Huckabee

Most people set as a goal in life trying to spend less money than they have. Many don’t set aside nearly as much as they’d like, but rational people at least consider it a win if they get to the end of the month with more leftover paycheck than bills. This is just one of many ways in which government is not like rational people.

2018 is only two-thirds over, but federal government’s fiscal year ends on September 30. That means government agencies that have yet to spend their budgets for the year are now going on steroid-injected spending sprees and handing out cash to contractors like there’s no tomorrow, just to try to get rid of all the money allocated to them. The reason: if they spend less than they said they needed, Congress might give them less next year (fat chance, since in Washington, if you reduce an agency’s budget increase from 12% to only 10%, Democrats accuse you of making “draconian cuts.”) They have to spend it all by the end of the fiscal year so they can tell Congress they ran out of money just in the nick of time and desperately need more next year.



Taking down Trump

By Mike Huckabee

New York Times columnist Thomas Freidman is urging journalists to put aside the idea of objective reporting and work together to focus negative attention on President Trump’s personality while downplaying his economic success, in order to take down the President and help elect Democrats. Just curious: what the heck does he thinks they’ve already been doing for the past year and a half?

“Democratic” Socialist media sensation Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can’t seem to get through even the most puffball interview without revealing almost stunning ignorance of one subject or another (her latest facepalm moment was suggesting that "Medicare For All" will reduce funeral costs – Does she realize how many funerals occur when you have government health care and/or socialism?) But if she can’t even make it unscathed through a fawning chat with Trevor Noah of “The Daily Show,” imagine the intellectual carnage if she had to debate a conservative as well-informed and articulate as Ben Shapiro.

Apparently, she can imagine it, because even though she claimed that Republicans are scared to debate her, she definitely doesn’t want that to happen. Shapiro made a very polite offer to have her on his show to debate socialism and other issues, and even offered to give $10,000 to her campaign or a charity of her choice. After a long silence, she finally responded by playing the sexism card, tweeting:

“Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions. And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one.”

That got a well-deserved Bronx cheer on social media, with commenters noting that Shapiro had addressed her professionally with no regard for gender, and she had brought sexism into it by “hiding behind her skirt” as an excuse to avoid debating him. Shapiro also noted that discussion and debate are not “bad intentions” and that she was the one exhibiting cowardice and bad intentions by slandering him as a sexist catcaller “without reason or evidence.”

Luckily for Ms Ocasio-Cortez, she has an option that takes any question of gender or race off the table: African-American conservative activist Candace Owens stepped up and offered to pay $20,000 to debate her. So we’re about to find out if there’s anything socialists won’t do to take other people’s money.

I should mention that Ms. Oscasio-Cortez, like all liberals, has a standing offer to come on my TBN show for a friendly debate. But don’t expect $20,000. I might be able to swing a free “Huckabee” cap, though.


Key detail omitted

By Mike Huckabee

You might have heard the shocking story about 11 children being rescued from a filthy compound in Taos County, New Mexico, where they were being starved and abused, and police say some were being trained to be mass school shooters. Here’s what you might not have heard: the two men running it were Islamic radicals, or as the local sheriff put it, “extremists of the Muslim belief,” a statement corroborated by the FBI.

Why wouldn’t you have heard that rather important nugget of information? Because NBC, CBS and Time all failed to mention it in their reports, and CNN mentioned it at first, then removed it, and when pressed, downplayed it as unverified.
