To the CMA Foundation Board
From Mike Huckabee
March 1, 2018

Dear Board Members:

It appears that I will make history as having the shortest tenure in the history of the CMA Foundation Board. I genuinely regret that some in the industry were so outraged by my appointment that they bullied the CMA and the Foundation with economic threats and vowed to withhold support for the programs for students if I remained. I had NO idea I was that influential! I’m somewhat flattered to be of such consequence when all I thought I was doing was voluntarily serving on a non-profit board without pay in order to continue my decades of advocacy for the arts and especially music.

The message here is “Hate Wins.” Bullies succeeded in making it untenable to have “someone like me” involved. I would imagine however that many of the people who buy tickets and music are not that “unlike me.”

I hereby tender my resignation effective immediately. I hope this will end the unnecessary distraction and deterrent to the core mission of the Foundation which is to help kids acquire musical instruments and have an opportunity to participate in music programs as students.

Guess who "investigated" the Clinton Foundation?

By Mike Huckabee

FOX News analyst Gregg Jarrett, in an appearance on Hannity Tuesday evening, said something stunning.  The panel was having a discussion about questions surrounding the Clinton Foundation and other Clinton corruption, including what we know about Hillary’s role in funding the unverified Steele dossier, when Jarrett dropped this little bombshell:

“You know, one has always wondered why the Clinton Foundation wasn’t seriously investigated, not to mention Hillary and Bill Clinton, at the same time they were investigating the Russians over this extortion, bribery, money laundering, etc.  Well, it turns out there were four people who were in charge of that investigation:  Robert Mueller, James Comey, Andrew Weissmann and Rod Rosenstein.”

Potential for a real "bombshell" story

This story was originally published on October 3, 2018.

By Mike Huckabee

This could be a potential real "bombshell" story for a change: Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s former boyfriend of seven years has written a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, contradicting several things she said under oath, and Chairman Grassley is demanding an explanation. The man, who asked that his name not be released (and good luck with that) claims that Ford never mentioned Kavanaugh or being assaulted to him; that she flew with him, including on a prop plane tour of Hawaii, without ever mentioning a fear of flying; that he found her a place to live that was 500 square feet with only one door, and she never mentioned a fear of small spaces or a need to have two doors; and most damaging of all, that he watched her coaching a friend on how to take a polygraph for a government job, despite claiming ignorance of how polygraphs works and denying she’d ever given anyone tips or advice on how to take a polygraph.

The John McCain story

This story was originally published on May 17, 2018.

By Mike Huckabee

A story appeared a few days ago that I deliberately avoided talking about in hopes that the people trying to turn it into a big deal would start to feel ashamed of themselves and reel it in. Instead, it’s just gone on and on, and gotten louder and louder. I feel I have to talk about it, but I’m going to do so by saying as little about the details as possible.

The story involves a little-known Trump White House staffer who, according to a leak, made a callous remark during a private meeting about Sen. John McCain, who is suffering from last-stage brain cancer. I won’t quote it, but she allegedly implied that his opposition would not be a factor because he will not live much longer. I don’t know if she actually said that, or the tone of her comment (was it mocking or disrespectful or simply coldly pragmatic?) But it sparked the usual howls of outrage and demands from the left that she be fired for slandering an American hero.

The Baltic Experience 2019

By Mike Huckabee

I am thrilled to announce an unforgettable trip to the Baltics for the summer of 2019! After many years of the Israel Experiences and our most recent trip the Mediterranean Experience cruise, we are bringing you another phenomenal cruise, the Baltic Experience! This all-inclusive cruise will feature some of the most beautiful places in the Baltic Sea and we will get to travel to and absorb these destinations aboard a luxury cruise ship from the Azamara Cruise line. If you have traveled with us before, you already know that all-inclusive means exactly that and there are no surprises along the way. The Baltic Experience will be no different. And when the weather is often unbearably hot throughout most of the US in August, we will be enjoying the cool and delightful weather that makes travel in the Baltic region perfect. Once again we have the entire ship and will fill our time on board with spectacular entertainment and special guests. In addition to the cruise we have multiple pre and post cruise offerings you can choose from to extend your trip. Our last cruise sold out in record time so we encourage you to get your cabin secured soon. We look forward to traveling with you soon and as always we will work tirelessly and do everything in our control to bring you The Greatest Trip.

To learn more about this exciting trip, visit my website here.

See you on the boat,

Mike Huckabee

"A Wrinkle in Time" the movie

By Mike Huckabee

This story was originally published on March 12, 2018.

Americans keep trying to tell Hollywood that they have adopted a bad business model by constantly insulting at least half their potential audience, but they just don’t seem to be getting the message (an odd Achilles heel for people who are supposedly in the communications business). You’d think that the cratering of the Oscar ratings might have been a big enough hammer on the cranium to get their attention, but does anyone doubt that next year’s Oscars will again feature lots of leftwing preening and anti-Trump snark, a gaggle of “transgressive” art house nominees that nobody paid to see, and most likely a TV audience smaller than test patterns used to pull?

But if TV ratings don’t get the message across, maybe money will talk for us, or the lack of money, anyway. Over the weekend, the much-hyped fantasy blockbuster “A Wrinkle in Time” opened. It had a $103 million budget, a big name cast that includes Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon, and it was based on a beloved children’s book. Plus, it got lots of fawning advance publicity for being directed by Ava DuVernay, an African-American woman best known for message movies such as “Selma” and “13th,” which compared the modern prison system to slavery. Yet, it pulled in just $33 million in its opening US weekend, and only $6.3 million at the foreign box office. Those numbers are likely harbingers of a disastrous flop. Why?

My reaction to the WHCD

This story was originally published on April 30, 2018.

By Mike Huckabee

As you might expect, a lot of people are asking for my reaction to the foul-mouthed, unfunny and vitriolic “comedy” performance at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. I already said a little about it on Twitter, and you can read about that here:

I would like to add that I am extremely proud of my daughter Sarah for giving the people in that room a desperately-needed illustration of what true class and dignity look like by sitting stoically through a vicious personal attack. I also commend those from both conservative and liberal media outlets who condemned that embarrassing, tasteless assault masquerading as humor (it’s no surprise that the speaker came out of “Comedy” Central’s “Daily Show,” which has lost its senses of humor and fairness ever since Jon Stewart left and Trump was elected, and has infected all of late night TV with the idea that partisan hate speech = “comedy.”)

A response to Laura Bush

By Mike Huckabee

This story was originally posted on June 19, 2018.

The wave of newfound outrage continues to roil among liberal celebrities, politicians and news media figures over the policy of separating children from their parents who try to cross the border illegally and putting the kids into detention centers.  I’m still waiting to hear a solution that recognizes the parents’ own responsibility for putting their children in that situation.  The current options are to send the entire family back where they came from together, which both the parents and their defenders oppose; or putting them all into detention together, where the children would be exposed to adult criminals; or letting them all go free in America, which makes a mockery of the very concept of national borders and immigration law.  We know Trump's critics are outraged by the law as it is – and has been for years – but what is their solution?  Anyone? Anyone?  Bueller?...

In the meantime, they’ve latched onto an op-ed by former First Lady Laura Bush, whose heart was naturally touched by the sad plight of the children.

    Caring for people is a good thing! Helping people is a good thing. But exploiting People and agendas to discredit people or an Administration should be Illegal and criminal. Using People and or children for sympathy for a criminal agenda or free pass or cause should be Criminal, exploiting it to discredit an administration is wrong and should be exposed for what it is, PAID for and FINANCED Illegal Migrants that don't care properly for the Children to cross a border illegally, How is that our fault if some innocent people or children die and the MEDIA blames the Trump Administration putting the cost on the Tax-Payers. FAKE MANUFACTURED news! Using and depriving of water, also starving children for a cause is criminal! Blaming an innocent party for an agenda for a decision another parent or adult made to gain sympathy or citizenship exploiting a false political narrative that a political Party started and the Media exploits for so-called NEWS should be CRIMINAL! The point is there is a PROPER SAFE way to do things and then there is a WRONG way that jeopardizes National Security and also SOVEREIGNTY. If you want to help send your own money to help, but no one has the right to force others to pay for your agendas because you think it is right. Because then you are a thief and an exploiter. Remember, America is strong and free because many Men and Woman fought and sacrificed for it. Did you fight to keep our nation free or are you a taker and an enabler who extorts others and their sacrifices for your own gain or agenda without a thought of the original cost, then just take. People can come to a nation but properly and legally. Not improperly with an agenda that everyone else pays for because of your agenda. God Bless America and God Bless our Fallen and those that sacrificed for our Country and it's Citizens. Our monetary Structure was set up and based on Tax-Payers that paid for and financed it for our citizens, not for illegal or non-citizens that did not pay into or supply. Based on BALANCE. Not Liberal agendas!
