As more and more Republicans are concluding that there’s no alternative to a second special counsel to investigate bias and abuses of power by the FBI and Justice Department, more attention is being paid to the role played by Deputy Attorney Gen. Rod Rosenstein, and it’s about time, because he's the one who gave us Robert Mueller. With Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions recused from issues relating to the Trump campaign and Russia (he supported Trump for President and was part of the campaign), it fell to Rosenstein to respond to the Democrats’ constant drumbeat for a special counsel to investigate “Russia Russia Russia.” And though there was no evidence of any crime –- evidence of CRIME is required for the creation of a special counsel –- he went all-in for the special counsel anyway and hand-picked Mueller for the job.

At the time Mueller was selected, the choice was lauded by most everyone; he was hailed as fair-minded and completely above-board. Never mind that the same was said of former FBI Director James Comey, who has apparently (let’s go to the videotape) been responsible for leaking information about an ongoing investigation and lying about it under oath. Andrew McCabe reportedly had a fine reputation as well, throughout most of his 21 years with the FBI. So, at this point, spare me the argument that Mueller is some kind of saint or Boy Scout.

Self-identification makes ICE's job easier...

By Mike Huckabee

This story is so clueless, it could only come from the intellectuals at NPR. It’s a shocking report that illegal immigration activists who speak out at public rallies about being in the US illegally are being “retaliated” against by ICE and deported. ICE denies being evil free speech haters who target people for exercising their Constitutional rights to advocate or criticize them for the simple reason that illegal aliens have no Constitutional right to be here at all. A spokesman for ICE explained, "All those in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to arrest, detention and...removal from the United States." When illegal immigrants self-identify in public, it just makes their job easier.

"Red flag" law followed in Broward county

By Mike Huckabee

For the first time since Florida passed its new "red flag" law, Broward County police have seized the guns and ammunition of someone deemed mentally unstable enough to be considered a potential threat. I know there is concern that the law will be abused to disarm people who aren’t really a threat. But if you read this story, I think you’ll agree that this was a reasonable exercise of the “red flag” law. In fact, this guy sounds like a walking, talking red flag. He might even believe he is one.

Second Amendment defenders will still want to remain vigilant to insure there’s no “enforcement creep” that allows people to be disarmed just based on, say, a false report by a vindictive ex. But in this case, I think we can all agree that the law worked as intended.

My advice for Republicans

By Mike Huckabee

The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows that Democrats are back up to a 10-point advantage in the generic Congressional preference poll. I will just keep repeating, as I have for years, that polls taken this far out are farily meaningless (remember Hillary’s insurmountable 11-point lead?), and the only thing more meaningless are generic polls. Those will accurately predict a race the day Generic Republican is running against Generic Democrat.

All that said, though, I have two pieces of advice for fellow Republicans: 1. Don’t believe the polls and give up campaigning. 2. Act as if you do believe them, and campaign as if the Congress and the future of the nation depended on it, because they do.

California's sanctuary law

By Mike Huckabee

The Trump Administration aren’t the only ones who think California’s “sanctuary state” law is unconstitutional. Turns out the leaders of at least one California city are also nervous about Jerry Brown having the power to tell them to ignore federal law. A spokeswoman for the Immigrant Rights Clinic at the University of California at Irvine warned that the city leaders are “setting themselves up for litigation.” That’s probably true, but it’s more a comment about how easy it is to file a nuisance lawsuit than expert advice on the Constitution. As long as she’s on a University campus, she might want to drop by the History department and ask them out the Civil War turned out.

    I would like to see metal detectors installed at every school entrance. This would be fairly inexpensive and there could be a staff member there to check bags. Much the same as at an airport only without the X-rays and invasive pat downs.
