Join me tonight on TBN for another terrific new episode of “Huckabee,” where “canceled” is a word you’ll never hear! I’ll welcome Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Pastor Matthew Barnett of the Dream Center, and author/political adviser Robert Woodson, who helped launch the 1776 Unites campaign, the African-American academics’ response to the New York Times’ bogus American history rewrite, “The 1619 Project.” We’ll have laughs from hilarious comedian Robert G. Lee and a performance by Christian music superstar Charles Billingsley. I’ll also have some comments on the week’s news and a special tribute to my friend, the late, great Charlie Daniels.
It all gets rolling tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, only on TBN.

CRY ME A RIVER
Friday, President Trump announced that he is commuting the three-year prison sentence of his former campaign adviser Roger Stone, which was set to begin in a few days. Trump is being vilified by Democrats and the media for making this move, but he probably figured he gets vilified by them for eating breakfast in the morning, so who cares? They’re already rushing to the cameras to declare him the “most corrupt President in history” for pardoning someone caught up in an illegal coup attempt, easily the worst political scandal in US history, which was hatched under the President they admire most, Barack Obama.
Trump’s spokespeople say Stone is 67 and his health would be at risk in prison. Besides, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the decision to commute was "in light of the egregious facts and circumstances surrounding his unfair prosecution, arrest, and trial," that the charges were the "product of recklessness borne of frustration and malice," and he could not get a fair trial in ultra-Democratic DC.
The charges against him, such as false statements and obstructing the Mueller investigation, all stem from the probe itself, which we now know was based on political animus, fraudulent “evidence,” illegally-obtained FISA warrants and no underlying crimes. It was also discovered that the forewoman of Stone’s jury hid the fact that she was virulently anti-Trump and had been posting nasty comments online about him and Stone during the trial, but the judge ruled that that somehow didn’t taint the verdict one whit. Stone continues to maintain his innocence and was already appealing his conviction.
I’m sure we’ll hear caterwauling from now until November about how outrageous it is that a 67-year-old Trump adviser isn’t doing hard time in the big house for process crimes, and from the same people who are letting rioters and looters out in 24 hours, giving sanctuary to Mexican drug gangsters and freeing thousands of actual criminals lest they contract a virus in prison. I guess what I’m trying to say is, “Cry me a river.”
F.H. Buckley at the American Spectator explains why we’re seeing our cities ransacked and our history torched and shattered while Democrat city officials do nothing to stop it and arrest anyone who tries. It’s because we’re being held hostage. This is the left’s attempt to force us not to reelect Trump and to put them back into power, and Heaven help us if we dare cross them.
I have a better solution: throw their sorry rear ends out of power at every level, from federal government down to dog catcher. We’ll see how long they keep threatening us with mob violence once those mobs of over-indulged gender studies majors face an army of police sent in by the newly elected Republican mayors of L.A, New York City, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, St. Louis, etc. etc. etc.
I know that sounds like the impossible dream, but it can happen if everyone who’s fed up with this rampaging violence, anti-Americanism and intolerance – and if blacks and Hispanics consider the other point in Buckley’s column, that Trump’s policies are helping them while Democrat policies hurt them, and the false cry of “Racist!” is being used to keep minorities voting for Democrats against their own best interests.
A WOKE CIRCUS
Charles Barkley makes an excellent point about the idea of injecting a lot of leftist/BLM/social justice warrior messages and anthem kneeling into the NBA: no sports fan wants to tune in to watch a woke circus. Sports were where Americans went to escape politics, a meritocracy where race was meaningless and only talent and skill mattered. Barkley said we need police reform and prison reform, but we need good cops policing the bad cops -- and nobody wants to turn on a basketball game and see a bunch of rich people arguing about social justice issues with no real results.
He added, "This is a critical time in our country. I just hope we get some adults who know what they are doing and stop screwing around and dividing our country.”
And that’s why he’s called “Sir Charles.”
