After former FBI Director James Comey’s lengthy transcribed testimony on Friday before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees, he said to reporters, “I have total confidence that the FISA process was followed and that the entire case was handled in a thoughtful, responsible way by DOJ and the FBI.  I think the notion that FISA was abused here is nonsense.”

This from someone who, behind the closed doors of the hearing, demonstrated precious little knowledge or recollection of how the process WAS handled.  He answered questions with “I don’t know” 166 times, “I don’t remember” 71 times, and “I don’t recall” 8 times.  All the variations of these non-answers that he gave in testimony add up to 245 times.  That’s a lot of things for the head of the Bureau to be blissfuly unaware of.

This Is Spinal Tap II

By Mike Huckabee

Bill and Hillary Clinton’s arena tour is turning into “This Is Spinal Tap II,” with seas of empty seats, ticket prices slashed as low as $7, and some organizers throwing in the towel and canceling.  In a last-ditch effort to put keisters in seats, promoters are now offering half-price tickets on Groupon, the discount coupon site where you can get bargains on things like massages and pretzels (makes sense: “Come see Bill and Hill massage the truth and twist it like a pretzel!”) I wonder if you can get a Groupon for half off the $7 seats? This is what happens when you can no longer peddle influence at the merchandise table.  

If it’s any consolation for the Clintons, there was a time when the Beatles toured the US and tickets cost only $5.75.  But that was in 1966, and they actually sold out Shea Stadium.  And at least they were honest enough to sing, “Money (That’s What I Want.)”


Community Standards

By Mike Huckabee

In case you’re still trying to make sense of Twitter’s “community standards,” good luck with this:  The @USSArizona account’s tweeting of coverage of Pearl Harbor Day scored it a brief restriction and a content “warning” placed on its tweets.  Meanwhile, all sorts of threatening leftist hate speech is allowed to remain there, along with a video of Louis Farrakhan chanting “Death to America” in Farsi during a trip to Iran. 

Read the full story at the link, and see some of the inspiring, moving and in-no-way offensive tweets from the @USSArizona commemorators. I’d leak directly to Twitter, but I want to make sure they’ll still be there when you click.


Ocasio-Cortez misquotes the Constitution

By Mike Huckabee

Unlike many Republicans, I’ve tried not to leap on every slip of the tongue made by “Democratic” socialist Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  Even though she’s attacked me, I’ve tried to cut her some slack and not swung at every easy slow pitch.  I understand that politicians can get tired and fumble their words, and I don’t make a federal case out of it.  Unfortunately, she keeps insisting on literally making federal cases out of fumbled thoughts.  So when she starts talking about amending the Constitution based on misquotes, I feel I have to speak up. 

She recently joked to Politico that she might force Republicans to vote to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment by running for President at 29 on the basis that the Constitutional age minimum of 35 refers only to “he” being 35.  As the linked blog notes, the Constitution doesn’t say “he.”  It says “any person.” 

Again, I’m not pointing this out to attack her but to defend her.  Those who claim she’s outside the mainstream of the Democratic Party should note that she’s talking about changing the Constitution when she hasn’t even read it.  I’d say that puts her solidly within the mainstream of the modern Democratic Party.

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


Adventures in Double Standards, Part II:

By Mike Huckabee

1.  James Comey repeatedly claims he can’t recall anything about one of the most important decisions of his tenure as FBI Director. 

Democrats: “Quit badgering the witness!  He’s a fine, honest public servant being attacked for political reasons!”

2.  The President’s son and son-in-law tell Congress they don’t remember some details of a brief meeting during the heat of the campaign.

Democrats:  “Perjury! Felony!! Prosecute!!! PRISON!!!!”

Must be nice to have two sets of moral standards, so you’ve got one handy for every occasion.


Best gift book of Christmas

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s a scary sign for the health of the publishing industry, and for literacy in general: Barnes and Noble released its annual list of the 20 best holiday gift ideas.  It includes mittens, a Buddha board, Mickey Mouse speakers, several kinds of socks…and only one book.

Even worse, it suggests that the people at Barnes & Noble don’t even know what the best gift book of Christmas 2018 really is:
