As the special counsel probe into still-unsupported allegations of Russian “collusion” with the Trump campaign enters its second year, this might be a good time to take a look at where we are with that. One problem, however: there’s suddenly so much news connected with the investigation that it’s hard to know where to begin without hopping on board the Information Overload Express.

The investigation appears to be imploding, but the mainstream press is trying very hard to avoid covering this. One story that just ran in the Washington Post (also picked up by AP) included input from, I think, five reporters but was written so narrowly that it essentially just contrasted the calmness and seriousness of the so-highly-organized Mueller team with the frenzied, chaotic reaction of Trump blah blah blah. Most of the budding Woodward-and-Bernsteins don’t seem all that interested in ferreting out the truth about Obama’s DOJ and FBI.

In contrast, there’s been fabulous reporting and analysis from out-of-the-mainstream journalists. Over the past year, we’ve learned that we have a much bigger problem than election interference by Russia –- we have election interference by our own intelligence community. In just in the last few days, we’ve addressed several breaking stories, including the most outrageous revelation of all (so far): that the FBI relied on a confidential “human source” (mole) within the Trump campaign and kept that information from Congress and the FISA court.

The Seattle employee tax

By Mike Huckabee

The ultra “progressive” leaders of Seattle seem determined to prove that “I’m from the government and I’m here to help you” truly does deserve to rank as the biggest lie of all time.

A few years ago, they voted to “help” low-wage workers by gradually raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. The added cost to restaurants and other small businesses forced owners to lay people off, reduce hours and delay hiring. A University of Washington study found that costs to low-wage workers outweighed benefits by 3-1, and the average minimum wage worker lost $125 a month. That’s not to mention the loss of customers of businesses that had to close, and the lost tax revenues. Thanks for the "help," guys!

Campus Reform group strikes again

By Mike Huckabee

The group Campus Reform has released yet another “man-on-campus” student interview video, the kind that makes you laugh until you realize you’re actually looking at the next generation to take over America, and then you feel like crying. In this one, intrepid interviewer Cabot Phillips asks UC-Santa Cruz students whether President Trump deserves a Nobel Peace Prize (horrors, no!), then whether Obama deserved one (but of course!) and finally, the body blow: what exactly did Obama DO to deserve one? To quote Ralph Kramden: “Uh, homina-homina-homina…”

To be fair, I don’t hold it against these kids for not being able to say what Obama did to deserve a Nobel Peace Prize. I’ll bet you couldn’t say, either. In fact, I’ll bet the people who gave it to him couldn’t really explain what he did to deserve it.

Check out the video at the link below. And if you’d like to know more about these videos and Campus Reform, I recently interviewed Cabot Phillips on my TBN TV show. Just go to and watch the episode from April 28.


"Deep State" tactics honed in Alaska

By Mike Huckabee

For those who think that the idea of a “Deep State” of politically-motivated insiders trying to affect the outcome of our elections is just wild conspiracy theory nuttery, here’s a story you probably have never heard. It’s a tale – backed up by the admission of one key person involved – of how an FBI informant infiltrated the campaign of a Republican who was on track to beat a liberal and deliberately undermined him, and of the ginning-up of false charges to destroy a Republican's reputation. And no, it’s not about Trump in 2016. It’s about alleged FBI involvement in affecting Senate races in Alaska as far back as 2008 and 2010.

No wonder it’s so hard to drain the swamp: it’s even deeper than we thought.

Sessions reverses Obama policy

By Mike Huckabee

And another plank of the Obama legacy hits the wood chipper: Attorney General Jeff Sessions has reversed an Obama policy that allowed transgender felons to move from men’s prisons into women’s prisons. The new policy will instead base prison location on the prisoner's “biological sex.”

This will be spun as an attack on transgender rights that will expose transgender prisoners to physical and emotional abuse in men’s prisons, although threats to the prisoner’s safety will be taken into account. Its opponents will do their darnedest not to mention the potential physical danger and emotional abuse that the Obama policy inflicted on women prisoners, who were to be deprived of privacy and personal safety and security by being locked inside cells with male criminals – most of whom, it should be noted, have not undergone surgery to become physically female, but who simply claim to “identify” as female. In fact, the change was sparked by a lawsuit by four female Texas inmates who were frightened for their own safety.

As I’ve pointed out again and again, in the current “progressive” atmosphere of dividing people into victim identity groups and pitting them against each other to promote the leaders’ power, women are increasingly finding themselves at the very back of the line for civil rights protections.
