Listening to the Democratic leadership these days, I keep finding myself torn between anger at their refusal to act like adults and put the good of Americans before their party and pity that they have allowed mindless partisanship to reduce them to the point that they’ve become nearly incoherent. 

Usually, the feelings of pity and sympathy go away when they express their frustration in such nasty and obnoxious ways, such as their embarrassing and juvenile antics and slanderous commentary directed at Attorney General Barr for doing his job and their attempt to change the law and the facts to fit the pictures inside their heads over his summary of a report that has already been released in full (aside from minor redactions.)  I haven’t seen anyone throw a bigger fit over a smaller complaint since the last time I was in WalMart and saw a four-year-old throw a screaming tantrum because his mom wouldn’t buy him a candy bar. 


With gratitude,

Mike Huckabee

Laura Ainsworth: George Papadopoulos story really is like a novel

By Laura Ainsworth, Staff writer

Listening to George Papadopoulos elaborate on the timeline of his apparently set-up encounters with “counterintelligence agents” (SPIES) in far-flung parts of the world made me think, “Wow, this sounds like something right out of a novel!
Then I remembered: The beginning of this story really is right out of a novel. If you haven’t read THE FIRM, by John Grisham, perhaps you’ve seen the hit movie with Tom Cruise from 1993. Cruise plays Mitch McDeere, a fresh young Harvard grad with a promising future. Before he’s even taken the bar exam, he’s aggressively recruited by a small boutique law firm that seduces him with gifts and a whopping salary to take a job in far-flung Memphis, Tennessee. Though at first this seems to be a dream job, with all kinds of perks, his gut tells him that something isn’t right, and he soon finds out that “the firm” isn’t what it had seemed to be –- that it’s essentially a cover for the Mob and that he had been recruited from the start to be a part of it.
Of course, this being a movie, the story takes off from there to include deep Mafia corruption and even murders. Ironically, the FBI characters in THE FIRM are the good guys, out to take down the corrupt law firm and the mobsters it represents. But it was just the idea of a green young man being so actively set up from the beginning and wooed by “the firm” that seemed eerily similar to the scenario Papadopoulos is recounting today.


New poll trend

By Mike Huckabee

I hate to sound like the evil Emperor in “Star Wars,” but “everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.”  By that, I mean I predicted that after the Mueller report turned out not to be dynamite but a wet firecracker, Democratic and media hysteria over AG Barr’s summary letter of the report would only fire up the public for a brief time before Americans got tired of the endless investigations and “OUTRAGE!!” and subpoenas of Trump’s grandkids’ iPhone records and said, “Move on and get something done!” 

Now, a new poll reflects that that’s already starting to happen. A rising number of Americans want the endless investigations of Trump to stop, and a huge majority want the DOJ to investigate how this “Russian collusion” tale got started.  CNN can’t possibly be happy about it being their poll, either, since they can’t even carp about it being slanted toward Trump.  Worse for them, they must know that providing objective professional coverage of a Congress that’s gone back to doing its job would be even worse for CNN’s ratings.


Trump tightens noose around Iran's economy

By Mike Huckabee

With the news media bleating about “Russia! Russia! Russia!” for no real purpose over the past couple of years, you might have missed what was going on with another country that’s a threat to the world, and how the Trump Administration has been quietly working to put a vice around it and tighten it down.  Let’s see if starving Iran’s mullahs of oil money will make them more willing to give up their nuclear ambitions and come to the table than did the “smart diplomacy” of the Obama years, which involved sending them a planeload of cash as we let them keep building nuclear plants and chanting “Death to America.”

Donations to Sanders cut in half after Biden enters race

By Mike Huckabee

Since Joe Biden entered the Presidential race, donations to Bernie Sanders have dropped by about 50%.  Sanders’ campaign is sending urgent pleas to donors to “dig a little deeper.”  Man, how does Bernie expect socialism to work if he’s not even President yet and he’s already running out of other people’s money?


Tolerant Liberals Corner

By Mike Huckabee

Some thugs in Washington, DC, were captured on video surrounding some Asian tourists who were wearing MAGA caps.  They threatened and cursed the tourists, and yanked one cap off and stomped on it.  One of the attackers later posted the video on social media and bragged about it, then took it down, but it had already been saved by others. 

And now, as Paul Harvey used to say, here’s “the rest of the story,” from P.J. Media:

"The Asians wearing MAGA hats were not just tourists," Wendy Wright, president of Christian Freedom International, told PJ Media. "They are North Korean defectors and South Koreans who get rice, medicine, and Bibles into North Korea and North Korean defectors out."

Wright said, "They came from a totalitarian country that does not allow free speech or freedom of thought, and could not believe this assault on belief would take place in the U.S.  They were really shocked that this could happen and knew it was not random vandalism but it was an assault on free speech."

A lot of us are shocked by this fascistic behavior by the left, and are fed up with it.  I think that since we have the crime on video and know who posted it to social media, this would be an excellent opportunity to show the world the difference between the US and North Korea: here, we don’t put people in jail for practicing free speech, but we can certainly jail those who assault people simply for exercising their right to free speech. 


Quotes from our Presidents

“In the time of darkest defeat, victory may be nearest.”

- William McKinley


Laughing In the Face Of Death

By Mike Huckabee

AOC gave us only 12 years until we all die from climate change.  “Beto” shortened that to ten years.  But David Marcus says they’re both wrong: if we don’t stop everything we’re doing and turn our lives over to the government to reverse climate change, we’re all going to die by halfway through Tuesday morning!

Okay, this is satire (take note,  But it’s pretty darn funny satire, unless you’re the type who’s prone to believe that Denver is going to be “under 24 feet of burning snow” by tomorrow morning because of climate change.  

PS – Extra points for including a quote from Prof. Harold Hill’s “Trouble in River City” spiel.  See if you can spot it.


Google buries Biden

By Mike Huckabee

When you Google Joe Biden’s presidential bid, his official campaign website is buried in the search results.  What comes up as the top result is a parody website that makes fun of his “hands-on” style and highlights his many flip-flops on issues over the years as he moved ever leftward, trying to keep up with the drift of the Democratic Party.

Now that we know this, will Google continue to bury his real website and rank the mockery as #1, since so many more people must be visiting it?  Or will they find a way to tweak their allegedly unbiased algorithms to help the Democrat?  I wouldn’t bet the farm on the former if I were you.
