If the US House isn’t giving Americans a wake-up call on the dangers of entrusting today’s Democrats with any power over their lives, they should take a look at New Mexico, where I imagine voters are experiencing a serious case of buyer’s remorse. Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who has seldom met a far-left hot button issue she doesn’t support, has been in office for all of four months. Already, she’s denied there’s a crisis at the border and withdrawn the state National Guard troops, leaving communities overwhelmed with a flood of illegal migrants, she’s under fire from Colorado for busing migrants there, and she’s demanding federal aid to deal with the migrant crisis she previously called a “charade.”
And now, the latest leftist transformation of New Mexico: she’s signed onto a state-level version of the “Green New Deal” which mandates the state get 100% of its energy from renewable sources. This is now the left hopes to get around Congress’ aversion to this insane bill: by forcing it onto the people blue state-by-blue state.

Our #2 story -- Another take on Mueller, affirming ours
By Mike Huckabee
I said in my first-take on Robert Mueller’s appalling public statement that I was not a legal expert, so it was just my research on this subject and my experience in dealing with ruthless political hacks that led me to conclude it was a shameless and desperate attempt to throw red meat to the impeachment-crazed Democrats on his way out the door and muddy the waters to take the focus off the corruption in his own agency.
Well, as expected, Jerry Nadler and other Democrats scurried straight to the nearest TV cameras to rail about this new proof of Trump’s many (but still unnamed) “crimes.” They conveniently ignored the comments already appearing from people who do have legal and prosecutorial backgrounds, slamming Mueller’s last minute Hail Mary bomb throw.
There are many such articles appearing, and I’ll point to more later, but for now, let's start with Sean Davis’ piece at the Federalist. He lays out the myriad ways in which Mueller’s statement violated both laws of conduct for prosecutors and his own agency’s regulations, contradicted his own report, and turned the basic American right of presumption of innocence on its head. In case you think he’s just being a Trump partisan, he describes Mueller as having become a Mini-Me clone of James Comey, who pulled the same unethical abuse of power on Hillary Clinton by declining to prosecute while still leaving a big cloud of suspicion over her head.
Our #3 story -- Critics call declassification move "un-American"
By Mike Huckabee
From the minute President Trump announced that he was declassifying all the documents related to the “Russian collusion” investigation, reaction from his critics has veered all over the map – which is understandable, because that’s what panicked people do.
One of the more laughable responses came from Rep. Adam Schiff, who declared Trump's order move “un-American.” This from a man who has been trying to unseat a duly-elected President for two years by claiming he has evidence of Russian collusion that he’s never shown anyone and that somehow, the two-year, $35 million Mueller investigation missed. Now, he seems to think it’s not un-American for the US government to lie to judges to get secret warrants to spy on American citizens who are working for an opposition political campaign, but it is un-American to let the people know what their government was doing. I think Schiff might be as unclear on the meaning of the word “un-American” as he is about the word “evidence.”
#4 story -- Shockwaves in Europe
By Mike Huckabee
I imagine most Americans have no more interest in the European Union Parliamentary elections than they do the latest cricket scores. But this weekend’s results are sending shockwaves that could realign the entire continent, and it appears to be part of a worldwide movement, at least partly fired and inspired by Donald Trump’s 2016 victory.
Across Europe, in Italy, France, Greece, Poland and other nations, conservative populist and nationalist parties made big gains while leftwing/socialist parties fell like dominoes. This will give you an idea of how widespread the leftist carnage was.
#5 story -- Is this a turning point for the late Rev. Martin Luther King?
By Mike Huckabee
Warning: This story contains some very shocking content and is for adults' eyes only.)
There is a story going all around the media about the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. It started with an article in the Times of London that referenced biographer David Garrow, who describes newly-released FBI memos discussing alleged secret tapes made by bugging Dr. King’s hotel room. The FBI files allegedly include claims that King had affairs with up to 40 women, engaging in a sex orgy and watched as a pastor friend raped a female parishioner.
A number of publications rejected this story, but it eventually came out, mostly because of Garrow, who won a Pulitizer Prize for his previous biography of King and who, as a “Democratic socialist,” can’t be accused of being hostile to Dr. King. He says this "poses so fundamental a challenge to his historical stature as to require the most complete and extensive historical review possible."
Tariff Dispute Update
Here’s an update on the tariff dispute between President Trump and Mexico, with Trump threatening to raise tariffs on imports from Mexico unless it takes action to stem the flood of illegal entrants crossing into the US from Mexico. One bit of advice for Mexico’s President: lecturing us that it’s a “fallacy” for the American President to want to put America’s interests first is probably not an effective persuasion tactic. At least, not with this President.
I know these sorts of confrontations give some people the vapors, especially when they send the Dow on a roller coaster ride…and I’m no fan of tariffs myself, which tend to set off trade wars that harm consumers and businesses on both sides. But we have allowed the US to be rolled over for too long, and a corrective is needed. And it appears that only alternatives are terrible liberal plans like the massive immigration reform proposed this week by “Beto” O’Rourke. It involves a lot of amnesty, open borders and spending tons of our money to make Central America so prosperous that people won’t feel like leaving. Sure, nothing works better than expensive, forced nation-building.
Central American nations already have abundant resources, hard-working people and climates better than many far more prosperous northern US states. It isn’t our responsibility to remake their nations in our image. If they want what we have, it’s within their power without their citizens having to flood across our borders illegally.
We don’t need to provide other nations with a free banquet at our taxpayers’ expense. All we should feel obligated to do is to loan them the recipe and let them follow it for themselves. And here it is:
