Its name is Mueller

They should name it "Mueller."  It's either a deep-dwelling, cold-blooded predator with outrageously long tentacles that can reach anywhere, or a squid.

The other Party

At their summer meeting in Chicago, the Democratic National Committee passed a rule requiring “gender-neutral” language and for all committees to have equal numbers of men and women.  Personally, I am OUTRAGED to hear that these so-called enlightened liberals think gender is “binary!” Do they not realize that there are, at current count, at least 57 genders, all of which much be represented equally?  That means each DNC committee must consist of at least 57 persons or self-identifying non-persons.  And if any committee has two heterosexual males or females, then the committee membership must be doubled to 114, to insure equal representation for all genders.

Remember: before you vote for Democrats in November, this is the kind of politicized micro-management they want to impose on the government and society at large.  That’s why, if you think of our economy as a fast-accelerating train, you should think of pulling the lever for Democrats as being the equivalent of pulling the brake cord.

Remembering Senator McCain

As you surely know from the weekend filled with tributes, Sen. John McCain passed away Saturday night at 81, just one day after his family announced that he had stopped receiving treatments for brain cancer. 

Since we ran against each other in the 2008 GOP Presidential primary, and I campaigned for and with him after he won the nomination, media outlets asked me for my thoughts and memories.  Of course, he was a courageous warrior who sacrificed much for his country. But he was also a throwback to a time when people could be political opponents and disagree sharply on issues, but still not be enemies. He beat me fair and square, and then we joined forces and never once had a cross word.  He was an incredibly gracious and grateful person, and he put what he believed to be what was best for America above all else.   

I spoke about my experiences with Sen. McCain with Fox News, and this link will take you to that video.  I also want to express my deepest sympathy and prayers to his wife Cindy, his daughter Meghan and all the rest of his family and friends.

 Desperate attempt 

The latest desperate attempt from Democrats to prevent Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court is to claim that judicial nominees should not be confirmed as long as the President is under investigation.  Two problems with that:

1.  As we now know, Donald Trump has been “under investigation” continuously since before he was even elected, in an undefined, unlimited, based-on-phony-evidence probe that will apparently keep going unto infinity, peeking under every rock and pebble to find a crime, any crime, to justify the investigation. By that standard, no President would ever be able to do anything, which I’m sure was the point, but it has no Constitutional basis.  

2.  The Democrats seem to forget that the Senate confirmed two of Bill Clinton’s SCOTUS picks while he was under investigation for actual crimes and under subpoena.  Even though Republicans disagreed with the liberal views of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Steven Breyer, both votes were hugely lopsided: 96-3 and 87-9, respectively.  Senate Republicans respected that Presidents have the power to nominate Justices and that elections have consequences.  Unfortunately, for most of today’s Democrats, the only consequences the last election held were that it cost them their sanity.

 Second Fleet returns

I’ve started to lose count of all the ways that President Trump has stood up to Russia (it’s hard to think of them all with Democrats, pundits and celebrities constantly screaming “Russian collusion!” and “Putin puppet!” in our ears), but I’d say this might be the strongest smackdown of all: Trump has reactivated the Navy’s Second Fleet.  It was established after World War II to keep Moscow in check and deactivated by President Barack (“Reset button/more flexibility after my reelection/here, take 20% of our uranium”) Obama.

After its deactivation, Russia turned more aggressive, invading eastern Ukraine and ramping up its naval activity in the Arctic and north Atlantic. The Trump Administration is not only reactivating the Second Fleet, but click this link to read the incredible resume of the man named to command it, Vice Adm. Andrew “Woody” Lewis, and what he has to say about its mission. It looks as if the days of allowing our military to be directed by poll-taking desk jockeys and liberal academics who’ve never seen battle are thankfully over.

 Excellent article

Excellent article about last week’s media mental derailment over the Manafort and Cohen stories spelling the end at last for that wascally wabbit Trump, and how it proves they never really cared about Russian collusion, they’re just looking for anything, no matter how trivial or peripheral, to tar Trump.  When I saw the tweets from liberal celebrities demanding Trump’s impeachment following the Manafort verdict, in which he was convicted on eight counts of tax-related infractions that even one juror admitted should have been handled with a simple tax audit, I wanted to ask them this question:

“If someone who briefly worked for you were convicted of an unrelated crime that took place years before you knew him, should you be fired from your TV series/record contract/Broadway show?"

Since show business is one of the few industries with even sleazier hangers-on than politics, I have a feeling that would eliminate an awful lot of entertainment.

 Prayers for the victims of Jacksonville shooting

Our prayers today for the victims of a surreal shooting in Jacksonville, Florida, Sunday, where a pro video gamer who had lost a tournament being shooting people for real, killing two and injuring 11 others before turning the gun on himself.  In a chilling turn, the gunshots were heard on the Internet livestream of the tournament before the plug was pulled. The FBI swarmed the shooter’s townhouse Sunday, and we’re still awaiting more information.  Some of what we do know is at this link, including the video, which I warn you is disturbing.  I don’t give publicity to killers by repeating their names and giving copycats any ideas that violence is a path to fame.  As in all such tragic cases, our attention and sympathies should be focused on the victims.

 Leader under fire

A major world leader is facing calls for him to resign, and no, this isn’t yet another story about some ridiculous trumped-up Trump accusation.  The leader under fire is Pope Francis.  Former papal nuncio Archbishop Carla Maria Vigano wrote a scathing, 11-page letter, calling on the Pope to step down over accusations that he knew Washington Archbishop Theodore McCarrick had been placed under sanction by Pope Benedict XVI for decades of homosexual relations with adult seminariarians and sexual abuse of an altar boy but reinstated him anyway.

In the letter, the Archbishop lays out his case, then calls on Pope Francis to live up to his promise of full transparency in dealing with the church’s sexual abuse scandals by being “the first to set a good example for cardinals and bishops who covered up McCarrick’s abuses and resign along with all of them.”

The current archbishop of Washington, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, replied to CBS that “the McCarrick affair has been concluded,” but with recent sexual abuse stories in Indiana and Pennsylvania, and now this stunning challenge to the Pope, it’s obvious this story is far from concluded.

 Cleaning up some loose ends

On Friday, Republican Troy Balderson was finally declared the winner of the special election for Ohio’s 12th Congressional District over Democrat Danny O’Connor.  The election was held on August 7, but the race was so close that all the absentee and provisional ballots had to be counted.  In the end, Balderson won by 1,680 votes, which is 520 votes more than the threshold that would trigger an automatic recount. 

The race is being touted as a sign of Democratic strength, since it was a safe GOP district that Trump won in 2016 by 11 points.  But other analysts warn against reading too much into a one-shot special election.  Balderson and O’Connor will face each other again in November for a full term, and that’s when we’ll find out whether there really will be a “blue wave” or, as in 2016, just a bunch of red-faced pollsters.

 Sad news

Sad to report that the most successful playwright since William Shakespeare, and one of the most influential of all comedy writers, Neil Simon, has died at 91.  Simon wrote classic comedy material for TV, starting back in the early days when Sid Caesar was the king, as well as such classic movie comedies as “The Heartbreak Kid” and “The Goodbye Girl.”  But it was his stage plays that made him famous and that continue to be performed all over the world.  To name just a few: “Barefoot in the Park,” the “Brighton Beach” trilogy, “The Prisoner of Second Avenue,” “Last of the Red Hot Lovers,” “The Sunshine Boys,” “Plaza Suite,” “They’re Playing Our Song,” “Chapter Two,” “Sweet Charity” and “Promises, Promises” (I get tired just typing all the titled; imagine writing them all!) Many became movies, and the biggest hit of all, “The Odd Couple,” became both a movie and a long-running TV series.  At one point in 1967, he had four shows running on Broadway simultaneously.

Simon was so prolific because, as he once explained, “I am most alive and most fulfilled sitting alone in a room, hoping that those words forming on the paper in the Smith-Corona will be the first perfect play ever written in a single draft.”  Still, young comedy writers should take heart in knowing that not even Neil Simon could crank out a perfect play.  He once quipped that his plays weren’t written, they “were rewritten.”  Nobody rewrote jokes better.  It’s too bad we’re losing him at a time when the world needs genuine, heartfelt humor more than ever.

Thanks for all the laughs, Mr. Simon.

Interesting read

See if you agree with this list of “Seven Ways Life Was Better 40 Years Ago.”  Whenever someone talks of “making America great again,” they are usually referring to either military strength, economic growth and jobs that can support the American Dream, or little things like these (i.e., kids being able to play outdoors instead of having the neighbors sic child services on moms for letting a child walk the dog around the block without a police escort.)

For some reason, liberals always claim that “making America great again” means Republicans want to bring back segregation or slavery.  Why would Republicans want to bring those things back when they had to fight so hard to get Democrats to give them up in the first place?  It’s interesting that that’s the first thing they think of when they hear “make America great again.” They claim it’s a “dog whistle,” but it’s odd that they seem to be the only dogs who hear it.

Gregg Jarrett speaks with startling clarity about DOJ scandal

My thanks to FOX News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett for appearing with me on “Huckabee” on TBN this past weekend.  In his bestselling book “THE RUSSIA HOAX:  The Illicit Scheme To Clear Hillary Clinton And Frame Donald Trump” and in personal interviews, he has an almost startlingly clear way of pointing out what’s going on with Lady Justice’s blindfold these days, as President Trump stands accused of so-called “crimes” that are actually non-crimes and President wannabe Hillary Clinton is excused for “non-crimes” that are actually crimes.  There has never been anything like this in my lifetime.

I’ll tell you who needs to read the book most of all:  anyone who provides commentary on CNN, MSNBC or any one of numerous other news outlets that used to be worthy of at least a little respect.  They should be ashamed of themselves for committing journalistic fraud in their so-called coverage of these investigations.

On Sunday with Maria Bartiromo, Jarrett expounded on one of the main reasons justice got turned on its head:  the odd job performance of Attorney General Jeff Sessions ever since his first day at the DOJ.  It started before then, actually, because it’s still a mystery why he took the job in the first place when he decided on DAY ONE that he would recuse himself.  I doubt that many of us were aware of this, but according to Jarrett, Sessions “told the Senate Intelligence Committee that he began his recusal his first day in office.”  Sessions betrayed the President from the outset, Jarrett said, because he concealed the fact that he was going to recuse himself from all things related to Russia and the campaign.  (I would add that the President failed to anticipate the potential problem with appointing someone who’d been involved with the campaign, but even so, Sessions should have brought it up with him before taking the job.)

Jarrett writes in his book about “the law enforcers who became the law breakers,” and points out that Sessions has done precious little to go after them.  Why hasn’t Sessions gone after Hillary Clinton for her large-scale destruction of subpoenaed documents?  Why hasn’t he reopened the investigation of her mishandling of classified information, when literally hundred of thousands of documents found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop were never examined?  And why in blazes hasn’t he launched an investigation into her payment, through devious channels, of a British ex-spy to create an anti-Trump “dossier” out of Russian gossip  (the only “Russian collusion” we’ve seen) and the fraudulent use of it by the FBI to deceive the FISA court?

The idea that a Presidential candidate is known to have been behind these things and is getting away with it is so preposterous, it’s hard to believe it isn’t some bizarre work of fiction, even more bizarre than the dossier itself.

Speaking of the dossier, Bruce Ohr, formerly the number-four in command at the Justice Department and also, unbelievably, the husband of Fusion GPS employee Nellie Ohr, will –- finally –- testify behind closed doors before congressional committees on Tuesday.  He has a lot to answer for, not the least of which is why a DOJ official who wasn’t assigned to any part of the “Russia” probe was communicating so extensively with Christopher Steele, author of the so-called “dossier.”  Jarrett says he’s got 63 pages of notes, emails and text messages that Ohr exchanged with Steele.  So far, all of our suspicions about the “Russia” hoax have been proven right, and we know these two were up to no good.  Since Sessions doesn’t appear to be at all interested in the details, it’s just going to take congressional hearings to bring those to light.

Bring ‘em on.  In the meantime, not only should we all read THE RUSSIA HOAX –- Chapter 6 is all about the dossier –- but we should also study up a bit on campaign finance law.  Why?  Well, since no one has been able to tie Trump to Russian collusion, they’re stuck with trying to say he broke campaign finance law.  The fact that campaign finance law is really complicated makes it easier to accuse him.  Trump’s opponents get to put him in a situation in which they can condemn whatever decision he makes.

For example, they’re saying he was wrong –- wait, criminal –- by not counting payments made as part of non-disclosure agreements as campaign contributions.  But if he HAD called them campaign contributions and used campaign funds for the payoffs, they would be saying he’d violated the law by diverting campaign funds for his personal use.  Either way, they’d say he was breaking the law.

Andrew C. McCarthy talks about this and much more in his latest NATIONAL REVIEW column.  So that’s your assignment for today, class.  As far as we know, Bruce Ohr will be testifying tomorrow.  Between now and then, I may even come up with a list of fun questions for him.

    Yes Sen. McCain is a hero for what he endured as a POW during Vietnam. And he is also a smuck for voting against Obama-care repeal. Because Obama-care is a totally unconstitutional Obama program just as DACA and many more. SCOTUS is not congress & had no authority to tell the country what Dems meant by calling a "fee" a tax. Obamacare is the beginining of a socialist transformation of our country. And every one who holds Federal office of any kind from Obama to McCain took an oath to: Protect and defend the U.S. Constitution and the American people. None of Obama's unconstitutional acts supported his oath and neither did McCain's vote to protect Obama-care and stick it to Pres. Trump for personal reasons.

    Obama care is destroying our freedom of medical choice while increasing medical ins costs over 400 percent. It also is destroying retired folks on Medicare by no longer approving many tests and treatments MD's feel necessary. And causing some Cancer treatments to be now done in hospitals resulting in increased costs from a BCG Bladder wash for Bladder cancer from $950 for office procedure to now over $7,500 for out patient hospital treatment. All to fund the pockets of hospitals, Pharmaceuticals and MD's. This is what McCain voted to protect. No way in hades this is helping the Americans prosper.


    I am age 74 and now from VA. because I voted with my feet to leave high tax CT. I also flew airplanes for a living for 47 yrs. for 5 Fortune 50 companies and one airline. Including the Chair of the Business roundtable for Pres. Reagan and G.W. Bush. Some 28 in our extended family served, including myself. A cousin was one of the men putting up the flag on Iwo, Sgt Mike Strank. U.S.M.C. he was killed 2 days later. The 28 who served included the range from pvt's to Gen's. and four wars. One uncle was a Dem. Congressman from Pittsburgh for some 33 yrs. But all of this extended family votes Rebublican today. Thanks for you good commentary. Keep it up and God Bless.

    You have a high opinion of John McCain. What about the audio of his singing for the North Vietnamese? To me he is a TRAITOR! I can understand being subjected to torture or perhaps only threats of torture that someone might turn coward and sing like a canary. I might under those circumstances. However, I would never return to the US and claim to be a hero after being a traitor. I would hide in shame from ALL publicity! I hope I could live with myself after such despicable conduct. I'm not sure I could tolerate myself as a traitor. How do you reconcile McCain the traitor with your good impression of him? Of course, his being a traitor was a cover-up until recently so few people knew. Please respond. Thank you.

    Interesting article on ways life was better 40 years ago. I am 76 years ago......making me be born in the middle or WWII, and old enough to remember the best of the good times, and the grubby parts of having to use ration stamps and coins in order to purchase simple things like sugar and tires. I have just begun jotting down things about growing up all those years ago......on a poor dirt farm that fed out family. I don't remember having a 'can' of food in our house before I was 10 years old, because my mother preserved everything in glass jars. We still had an 'ice box'. I 'helped' scrape a hog when I was 7 years old. Just thought my grandchildren ought to know how life was before cell phones and computers, multi-car families etc. My parents first TV was one my husband and I gave them, that someone had given us shortly after we got married in 1961. My brother bought them their first window air conditioning unit in the late '60's. The horrors in our government is causing me concern over what our country holds for my young married grand-children and already 5 great grandchildren. I value your articles and pray that we get some common sense folks voted in, in our upcoming election, who believes in family values and God. Thank you Mike.

We had a saying when I was a kid, "if your brain got any smaller it would roll out your ear." I do believe it really does apply to all. I know we are not to judge, but they sure do make it hard. Thank you for all your hard work helping to keep us informed with honest down to earth reporting. Tell your beautiful daughter she is amazing and does an excellent job.

    I enjoy your show on TBN very much. On Sundays, being an adult Sunday School teacher, I many times encourage others to watch your show. I am so glad and inspired to see Christians that are willing to take a stand on issues based on Godly principles and the Bible. Also, to solve many of our governmental problems I submit this thought: all politicians should be elected to a six-year term, be required to return to their secular job they had before being elected upon completion of their six-year term (this would eliminate professional politicians-George Washington went back to farming), receive medical insurance from their previous job that they have returned to, and receive retirement benefits from this previous job. This would eliminate the lifetime governmental benefits that tax payers are required to fund. I hope you consider posting this on your site. I know you are very bold and very outspoken on doing what is right, honest, truthful, and in accordance with God's word. May God continue to bless you, your family, and your program. P.S. Sarah is doing a great job! What a strong girl you have raised!

    RIP John McCain, an American hero.

    Slowly the big picture is emerging::

    Comey, Mueller, Strzok, Page, Bruce Ohr & and others (likey obama) within govt & Nellie Ohr Daniel Richman Steele, Stefan Halper, Russians & perhaps the Russian government and Putin himself.

    We've learned of Glenn Simpson dining with the Russian lawyer before and after her meeting in the Trump Tower Obama campaign funneling money to Fusiongps through a law firm.

    Stefan Halper getting government money as a consultant to spy on the trump campaign and set up the campaign with Russians.

    Government monies likely being funneled to Russians in order to sabotage Trump.

    Hillary campaign funneling money to Russians for the fake dossier

    Partisan media manipulating the narrative like Goebbels or Pravda.

    Plus much more to be uncovered. All this is coming to light because John McCain was used by the conspirators to deliver a fake dossier to comey. Though he participated in the unravelling of this conspiracy unwittingly and was probably motivated by personal animus toward Trump and an affinity for the bad actors in government-probably due to his imprisonment years - John McCain's actions set a series of events in motion leading to the uncovering of what i believe is the biggest conspiracy against the citizens and government of the United States in our history. Its looking more and more like a secret subversive network within the government seeking to undermine the will and govenment of the people. This may turn out to have been set up, by Hillary herself (pure speculationon my part), during the Clinton Administration operating throughout the Bush years or it may have been just a brainchild of the Obama Administration. Time will tell. I am more optimistic about the future than any time since November 2008. I believe that those who swore to uphold the Constitution nearly succeeded in rendering it void. Though much work needs to be done processes have been set in motion which will inexorably move to expose the bad actors. I believe (I'm probably the only one in the country) John McCain's greatest service to our country was delivering the fake dossier to comey. I believe the Republic will persevere thanks to John McCain and the fake dossier. Saved at the very cusp of demise. Thank you John McCain for your service to our great nation even though you didn't intend for things to turn out this way.

    Session has been a "do nothing" AG since day one and needs to be removed and replaced by someone who actually understands his duty under this position. I'm currently visiting my son in Germany and even here it's apparent to the Germans that American news is slanted against Trump. When Trump said we need to 'drain the swamp' - I had absolutely no idea how far-reaching that swamp had become. It's not just sickening but frightening and we need to pray for Trump and for America more deeply and fervently than ever before. Never has a President done more for his country in such a short time and never has a liberal press so refused to acknowledge the truth. My parents were both Democrats who lived through the depression and both are now deceased. I'm relieved they do not have to witness the low level to which their party has sunk.

    I had such high hopes when Jeff Sessions was appointed that people who committed crimes would actually be held accountable (Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, James Comey etc.) and am truly disappointed. The only thing I've seen him do besides recuse himself is file the suit in California over their sanctuary state status. However, I believe that someone in the swamp got to Mr. Sessions and either threatened to harm him or someone close to him or they have some type of "dirt" on him that will be exposed if he opens any investigation into the Democratic scandals the MSM never talks about.

    Jarrett's book if even a scintilla is true should put this nonsense to rest. Read the Wikipedia version and it's obvious the POTUS's enemies are ahead of the curve in covering the DEEP STATE. Jarrett's book clarifies much that Wiki attempts to muddy. I'm confident that the KKK (Klinton Krime Kartel) will NEVER see justice, just too much money spread into too many pockets. If this quagmire ever were to unravel many reputations will be destroyed in the eyes of Honest people but will just be business as usual for the Democrats. What a shame that for money and power a few bad actors are attempting to destroy the Republic.

    Governor, A good friend of ours completed his doctorate in communications at Ohio University over fifteen years ago. The committee for his thesis contained two South American Communists. I asked him if he was not afraid that foreign students would be influenced by these professors. His reply has stuck with me. He said he was not afraid for the foreign students because they knew what communism was. He was afraid for the American students! Is it any wonder the present popular desire for socialism among wide eyed young people. Thanks for all your service to this country Doctor Huckabee.

    This world is not my home; I'm just a passing through. My treasures are laid up, somewhere beyond the blue. The angels beckon me from heaven's open door, I can't feel at home in this world anymore.

    Thank you for the hearty laugh I just had when I read the following sentence: "Why would Republicans want to bring those things back when they had to fight so hard to get Democrats to give them up in the first place?" The best humor tends to be grounded in truth, and I can almost hear your voice saying this haha thank you Mike for your newsletters. They keep me going after long days of reading how terrible my conservative beliefs are all day on social media. After all, anything that isn't far left is bound to be randomly removed by social media algorithms.

    It's refreshing to read your common sense messages from an Arkansas native- especially after all the bs blather from Hillary and Bill. How the two of them have managed to remain out of prison is truly a testimony to how corrupt our government has become. They must have an enormous amount of incriminating evidence on many of the officials who are in positions to bring charges against them. Truly, Washington is more than a swamp- it must be a stinking slime pit of corruption in which the demoncrats have taken habitation. GOD help us survive their skullduggery!
