Watching the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearings, you might be forgiven if you thought you’d mistakenly channel-surfed over to TCM and were watching an old movie instead.

For instance, we had the spectacle of Democrat Cory Booker and his Cinerama-scale virtue-signaling, as he declared that he was willing to risk his career to expose confidential emails with the title “Racial Profiling” from Kavanaugh’s time as White House counsel that the Republicans were trying to suppress. His performance won applause from liberal media critics, who hailed his histrionics as a “Spartacus” moment, referring to the #1 movie of 1960, in which Kirk Douglas plays the leader of a slave revolt against Roman oppressors.

But it turned out to be more like the #2 movie of 1960, “Psycho,” after baffled Republicans revealed that they’d cleared those documents for release the night before on request of Booker’s office.

Nike's questionable marketing strategy

By Mike Huckabee

For the past few days, whenever I turned on a news channel, I saw some marketing “expert” assuring me that Nike’s decision to enrich and glorify Colin Kaepernick for his “sacrifice” (tell that to a disabled veteran or Gold Star family) was a brilliant business move. All those people cursing Nike on social media and posting videos of them burning their Nike gear? They’re just irrelevant old fogies who don’t matter. Nike is a hip, edgy company, and this campaign will give them a huge boost among their current target market of young hipsters and minorities.

So, how’s that working out? Marketing types love surveys and numbers, so here are the latest results from a Morning Consult survey:



North Korea update

By Mike Huckabee

About that snickering by elites that President Trump got snookered by Kim Jong-Un, who has no intention of destroying his nukes: that’s not what Kim told the President of South Korea. After a meeting with Kim this past week, President Moon Jae-in said that despite the recent verbal jousting over negotiations, Kim’s trust in Trump is unchanged, and he wants to keep his word to denuclearize while Trump is President.

That’s good news, indeed, for everyone except the professional Hate Trump industry. And as I’ve pointed out before, even if Trump’s attempt to try something different falls to pieces, leaving us with a North Korea that’s building nukes and testing missiles, how would that be the slightest bit different from the situation he inherited from all the Ivy League diplomacy savants who are currenty sneering that he doesn’t know what he’s going?


Layoffs at record lows

By Mike Huckabee

Another great benefit for workers of the hot economy and low unemployment (initial jobless claims haven’t been this low since 1969) is that layoffs are at record lows because employers are desperate to keep good workers and to hire new ones. When you have ten employers competing for one worker instead of ten workers competing for one job, the worker is in the catbird seat.

For liberals who claim that conservative policies that boost business don’t help the workers, which would you rather have: ten employers fighting for your services or a slightly larger unemployment check?

Economy heating up

By Mike Huckabee

The economy isn’t just heated up, it’s burning down all previous records. The new jobs report for August shows that the US added over 201,000 new jobs, far more than expected. Unemployment remained at 3.9%, with near-record lows across almost all categories (black unemployment hit 6.3%, the second-lowest ever recorded. The lowest was 5.9% in May.) More good news: lower-paid workers are finally seeing some read wage increases. Average wages rose by 10 cents an hour in one month, the highest rate of growth since 2009 (they’re up by 77 cents an hour since a year ago, or as Nancy Pelosi might call that, crumbs of crumbs.)

    Hello, Governor Huckabee -- this comment is not so much referring to anything you've shared in this "Evening Edition." Rather, I would just like to share with someone who might have influence re the GOP campaign strategy, that I fear that what former President Obama's campaigning is doing is REALLY firing up the younger vote -- and regardless of the fact that I believe they are totally misguided with regard to their seeming Socialistic leanings, they are getting fired up; and if they vote, it will likely be for Democrats simply because that's who's firing them up. Perhaps something that MIGHT appeal to them is for the GOP to come up with SOMETHING that would help them to address the growing frustration of increasing student loans, too few jobs capable of allowing them to repay them quickly, and all the ramifications of this challenge. I'm certainly not suggesting free education, but surely something meaningful could be developed to encourage entry into high-paying jobs of a more vocational nature (i.e., plumbers, mechanics, electricians that don't necessarily require a college degree), and/or a fair means of repaying those loans by WORKING at something that we need in our communities and country, like the infrastructure, etc. Thank you for listening; I wish I were better able to describe what I mean. God bless you! Sister Mary Margaret Rosberg

    When I went on Twitter last night, I saw Obama giving a speech slamming President Trump and all his supporters, and slamming America, as usual. And I saw Hillary slamming everything Republican. And the Kavanaugh hearing circus. And the NYT op-ed. Governor Huckabee, I felt like I was back in 2015-16. It is so discouraging. I'm getting tired of fighting against these corrupt, how do I say it, criminals. I pray pray pray and keep the faith, but sometimes it is hard to keep fighting the good fight. I wish they would just all disappear, along with the other people who hate this country. Stop fighting and changing our country. Bring back God into our Country. Thank you Governor Huckabee and God bless you.

    The Kavanaugh hearings were more of a circus on the Democratic side. Cory Booker & Kamala were auditioning for the 2020 Presidential run. Bookers headline should have been "Send in the Clowns".
