Let’s take a little break from all the coverage of Mueller’s “Russia” investigation –- the mission of which seems to be setting President Trump on the road to prosecution or impeachment by putting his former campaign manager on trial for old loan fraud and tax charges –- and have a look at a very real example of high-level Russian spying on Americans. This stunning new story from The Guardian reflects the kind of infiltration we SHOULD be investigating: Russian spying that resulted in access to some of our most highly classified information, even the President’s daily schedule. While the Mueller team is wasting time showing jurors pictures of Manafort’s expensive suits and threatening him with life in prison to get him to offer up his former boss on a platter, a story is emerging of very real Russian “meddling.”

But since it’s a huge embarrassment to the intelligence community and perhaps even an unwelcome distraction from the “get-Trump” narrative, having nothing whatsoever to do with Trump, we probably won’t be hearing much about it.

NY Times condones racism

By Mike Huckabee

The New York Times' motto is “All the News That’s Fit To Print.” But obviously, being “fit to print” is not a standard that applies to their editorial board.

The Times came under fire Thursday after it was discovered that their new tech writing hire Sarah Jeong had a history on Twitter of incredibly racist, now-deleted, anti-white tweets. Many are so offensive or profane that I can’t even quote them; but nothing on the Internet ever really goes away, and conservative sites quickly pulled them out of the memory hole and posted them in full. Some of the more repeatable ones included that white people deserve to live underground “like groveling goblins,” that whiteness is “awful,” that white people have “stopped breeding” and will “go extinct soon” and “this was my plan all along,” that she was “comparing Trump to Hitler before it was cool,” and “Oh man, it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.” “Kind of” sick, Sarah? Try “incredibly sick.”



Tangling with the press

By Mike Huckabee

You probably heard about CNN’s Jim Acosta leaving the White House Press briefing in a snit because the Press Secretary (full disclosure: my daughter Sarah) refused his repeated demands to deny that the media are the “enemy of the people” (President Trump has pointed out that he was talking about the “fake news,” not the entire news media).

I don’t know what he thinks the job of Press Secretary entails, but just for his edification, it doesn’t mean you stand in front of reporters giving your own opinions, or contradicting the President, or “explaining” what he “really meant” when he’s not told you that he meant anything other than what he said. It’s not her job to interpret what the President thinks based on her own preconceived notions or to substitute her personal opinions for the facts she’s supposed to be relaying to the American people. That seems to be what Jim Acosta thinks his job is.



Another "In Case You Missed It" Story

By Mike Huckabee

Important health bulletin: Doctors in China are warning that it’s a really bad idea to eat raw centipedes.  Dried or powdered centipedes are used there in traditional medicines, but a mother and son were hospitalized (the reason is too gross to repeat, but click the link if you must know) after eating raw centipedes.  A doctor said some people boil them in teas or pickle them in wine to use as home remedies, but “In my opinion, it would be rude to tell the customer, ‘Don’t eat them raw. It would say the customer is stupid.”

Perish the thought!  But before you mock the Chinese for having to be told not to eat raw centipedes, consider that I recently saw a TV commercial touting the new child-proof container for Tide Pods.  The ad suggested that it’s to protect babies, but we all know most babies are too smart to eat a Tide Pod.  Be honest: that packaging is to keep teenagers with YouTube accounts from eating them, isn't it?  Although after hearing after this story, they’ll probably switch to eating raw centipedes.

Better than Obama

By Mike Huckabee

Rasmussen Reports’ Daily Tracking Poll puts President Trump’s approval rating at 50%. That’s five points higher than Obama at the 18-month point of his first term. You’d think that with unemployment at near record lows, GDP growth double what it was when he took office, and foreign threats subsiding, it would be higher. Although considering that over 90% of his media coverage is relentlessly negative no matter what he does, that 50% approval number might not represent how many people like Trump as much as it does the rising number of Americans who no longer pay attention to the mainstream press.


Threatening Scalise again

 Wasn’t it just yesterday that one of Hawaii’s Democratic Senators was assuring us there are no crazy, threatening people on the left side of the aisle? No, they’re all just earnest policy wonks who would never do anything so uncivilized.

I suggested he tell that to Rep. Steve Scalise, who was nearly shot to death by a hopped-up Bernie bro.  But Scalise was probably too busy dealing with police, who were talking to him about the arrest of a New York liberal who allegedly left messages threatening Scalise’s children because he doesn’t like his political views. 

I must be getting old.  I remember when everyone agreed that merely criticizing an opponent’s children was reprehensible and off-limits.

    I like your addition of headlines and a paragraph. A recap of the week would be helpful.
    Why is no one anywhere reporting the important constitucional change that happened in South Africa, and more importantly, the 270 some odd white farmers who have been brutality murdered along with their families. This has been occurring for the past few years, and their farms revert to the State. I believe that the land is redistributed to indigenous people.
    These white farmers did more than just provide jobs; they provided homes for the families, schools and churches, send the workers home with various food stuffs, and buy Christmas gifts for everyone each year.
    When I was there in 1974, all the children ran to and from schools. Laughing. Individual small farms cannot be as productive nor as provisional as the large ones.
    This sounds like Kenya 60 years ago. Sad.
