The most unreported story of the 2020 election might be how the liberal narratives (“Trump is an evil, racist, sexist, Nazi, Russia colluder!”) are slowly imploding as Americans start paying more attention to their own experiences than they do to the tall tales from the hysterical media.  It’s much easier to question them after the Mueller report.  If they could be completely wrong about the thing they’ve bellowed about for two years, then what else could they have gotten wrong?  Well, here’s an example you might not have heard yet:


With gratitude,

"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

Tonight’s new episode of “Huckabee” on TBN is one you’ll want to DVR and keep for posterity.  Trump National Security Adviser John Bolton will fill us in on some crises simmering around the world. Greenpeace founder and sensible environmentalist Dr. Patrick Moore will take on the “Green New Deal.”  You’ll meet a Huck’s Hero who’s standing up to bullies; best-selling author Eric Metaxas will reveal some exciting news; and we’ll enjoy music from the great harmony group, State of Grace, plus all our usual commentary, crazy news “In Case You Missed It” and more. 

But brace yourself: I’ll also welcome a very special guest: comedian Roseanne Barr. The woman who revolutionized sitcoms and gave blue collar Trump voters a voice on network TV (scoring the highest-rated show of 2018), only to be fired over one tweet.  Roseanne is back, feisty and hilarious as ever, on her “Alive and Kicking” stand-up tour, and she’s dropping by to tell us her story in her own inimitable way.

This “do-not-miss” show airs tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, only on TBN. To find your local TBN channel and stream previous episodes online, visit


Mother's Day reminder

By Huckabee staff

Reminder: Sunday is Mother’s Day.  Be sure to show mom your love and appreciation for giving you life.  And along with the flowers, cards, gifts and brunches, you might want to share this wonderful video with her.  It’s called “Dear Mom,” and it’s by Paul Lubanski.  It’s a beautiful song, and the pro-life message is both eternal and incredibly timely.


Surplus revenue

By Mike Huckabee

Here's something to remember when you hear candidates tell you that the only “sensible” thing to do to combat deficits is to raise taxes:

Even though tax rates were lowered, that helped spark an economic boom that, just as conservative economists predicted, brought a record $160.3 billion surplus of revenues to the federal government in April.  But the deficit for the fiscal year is still running 37.7% bigger than it was last year.

Now, we know that’s not due to lower tax rates, because the booming economy is bringing in more money to the government, the biggest monthly surplus in history.  But even with higher tax revenues, we’re still running a deficit.  Why?  Because no matter how much money comes in, the government is spending it faster than it arrives. 

When you are bringing in record amounts of money and still going deeper into debt, you don’t have an income problem, you have a spending problem.  Most people learn that pretty early in life.  When will the federal government learn it?

The Acceptable List

By Mike Huckabee

I’m sure you were putting off deciding who to vote for in 2020 until you heard who Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was endorsing.  Well, this isn’t an official endorsement yet, but while she likes socialist Bernie Sanders (naturally), AOC this week added Sen. Elizabeth Warren to her list of acceptable Democratic presidential choices.

I can’t help suspecting it’s not coincidental that AOC decided Warren would be her kind of President just one day after it was reported that Warren has already proposed spending more money than there is in the entire world.


Rhetoric Fail

By Mike Huckabee

There are certain rules of politics, or for civilized discourse in general, that some people just seen incapable of grasping.  One is that, no matter how much you might disagree with your opponent, accusing him of being another Hitler is over-the-line offensive and means you just lost the debate.  

Another is that no matter how negatively you may view something your opponent did, resist the temptation to compare his actions to 9/11 or the Pearl Harbor attack.  Doing that makes you sound too crazy to trust around sharp objects, let alone with public office.  And it’s so offensive, it might even get you reprimanded by the managers of the USS Arizona Memorial.  That's what just happened to Rep. Eric Swalwell, who seems to think that rhetoric like this will get him elected President.


Quotes from our Presidents

“If you see ten troubles coming down the road, you can be sure that nine will run into the ditch before they reach you.”
Calvin Coolidge


Chief Big Plans

By Mike Huckabee

It’s long been said that it’s impossible to make political jokes anymore because no matter how crazy a gag you think of, it will be real before you can tell it. Well, here’s another one I’ll have to retire.

Often, after writing of one lame-brained, leftwing big government proposal or another and noting its cost, I’ll ask facetiously, “Is there that much money in the entire world?”  Well, Elizabeth Warren has now rendered even that mild joke obsolete by actually proposing to spend more money than there is in the entire world.


Fighting back is bad?!?

By Mike Huckabee

Just yesterday, I wrote about the sea change in response to would-be mass shooters, in which heroic citizens refuse to just sit there and be victims, and instead fight back.  What a surprise: there’s already a backlash from liberals “concerned” that we are “setting our kids up to be martyrs."

I don’t want any kids to be martyrs, but fighting back is better than acting like sitting ducks, which is the policy preached by the left.  There is a solution that could stop them from having to be sitting ducks or martyrs.  But it involves pro-active policing of threats, allowing guards or teachers to be armed, and getting rid of magical thinking “gun-free zones” (which let criminals know that all law-abiding citizens within will be unarmed.)  These are the proposals suggested by experts who studied the Parkland shooting.  Continuing to deny them will only continue to make our kids martyrs to adults’ refusal to face reality.
