Having made the word “liberal” truly toxic, today’s leftists have slapped a new label on their failed policies: “Progressive.”  I’ve often asked what’s “progressive” about wanting to repeat the same ruinous economic policies that have brought poverty, inequality, death and misery everywhere they’ve been tried for over a century.  But it’s not just in that arena that “progressives” (I always put it in quotation marks, for good reason) are trying to lead society backwards.  Their views of abortion also run counter to public opinion, basic decency, mounting scientific evidence and the tide of history.

For a tragic example, look to New York.  Tuesday, on the 46th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s notorious Roe v. Wade ruling, Democrats who recently took power in both the state Assembly and Senate passed a sweeping pro-abortion bill that Gov. Andrew Cuomo  ran on a promise to sign.  It’s laughably dubbed the “Reproductive Health Act.” It actually has nothing to do with reproduction or health.

Latest bulletin from Venezuela

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s the latest bulletin from Venezuela, where President Trump has weighed in on the results of what is likely an illegitimate presidential election.  This is the latest debacle in an escalating series of them.  But please remember: when “Democratic” socialists tell you how great socialism is, they don’t mean they intend for America to become like Venezuela.  Of course, the problem is, no socialist nation ever “intends” to become like Venezuela, not even Venezuela.  It’s hidden in the fine-print of the socialist contract.

Incidentally, Russia is condemning any attempts to unseat socialist President Nicolas Maduro, while Trump recognized his opponent, Juan Guaidó, as Venezuela’s interim leader. Once again, if Trump is “Putin’s puppet,” he sure doesn’t seem to grasp the duties of the job.


President Trump drops the State of the Union Address

By Mike Huckabee

Late last night, President Trump decided to comply with Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s frankly petty and groundless demand that he postpone his State of the Union Address until after government shutdown ends.  I can’t say that I understand the reasoning.  Personally, I liked the idea of him taking up the invitation to give it in front of a gainfully employed crowd in a swing state, where his policies are appreciated, and deny all the jeering Democrats their moment of acting childish on TV. 

Of course, despite his opponents’ claims that he is stupid, incompetent and insane, he keeps repeatedly besting them in every confrontation.  So I have to assume he has a good reason for this decision.  Maybe it’s to emphasize that he is the one who’s being conciliatory while Pelosi continues to refuse to negotiate with him and drag out the shutdown for no good reason (it’s already cost more than the border wall funding she refuses to agree to.)  She can now go down in history as the Speaker who delayed a State of the Union Address to keep having a pointless snit, which makes it awfully hard to keep up the laughable pretense that she and Chuck Schumer are the “adults in the room.”   Or maybe Trump has some other ace up his sleeve he hasn’t played yet.

Anyway, that’s where it stands for now.  I’m disappointed that he postponed his SOTU speech, but I’m really looking forward to seeing how this plays out – and to what he says to the Democrats’ faces, once he does get around to giving it.



10 Year Challenge

By Mike Huckabee

There’s a meme going around on Facebook called the “10-Year Challenge,” where users are dared to post a photo of themselves now and 10 years ago.  Seems like a fun, harmless idea; no possible ulterior motives behind it. And Facebook swears it was user-created and they have nothing to do with it.

But even if that’s true, this link explains why you still might want to think twice before participating.  Remember the #1 rule of the Internet: if a site lets you use it for free, then its product is you.

Subway changes

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s yet another example of just how regressive so-called “Progressives” are. Since the headline of this article is “Subway Riders Demanding Answers,” I thought I’d give it to them.  The short answer is just three words: “Mayor Bill DeBlasio.”  

It took Republican Mayor Rudy Giuliani to turn around the dirty mess New York City had become in the 1970s, ‘80s and early ‘90s.  Putative Republican Mayor Mike Bloomberg kept the renaissance going for another 12 years.  And it’s taken “progressive” leftist Bill DeBlasio just four years to bring back the pre-Giuliani New York and make the Big Apple wormy again. 

This is what comes of schools that don’t teach real history: young voters grow up thinking that the clean, crime-free, well-functioning cities and nation they grew up in happened that way by magic.  So they elect liberal Democrats to run them and then learn the hard way that it isn’t true.  I just wish they’d quit forcing those of us who do remember the bad old days to stop having to relive them, too.


Michael Cohen feels "threatened," delays House testimony

By Mike Huckabee

Of what possible value is the House testimony of someone who is set to go to prison for three years after pleading guilty to bank fraud, illegal campaign contributions and...wait for it...lying to Congress, and who might be motivated to “compose” in further testimony to lessen his sentence?

We may not ever find out, as former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen is “postponing” his February 7 testimony before the now-Democrat-led House Oversight committee.  This is by advice of counsel, who happens to be...wait for it...longtime Clinton crony Lanny Davis.  Davis accuses President Trump and Rudy Giuliani of threatening  Cohen and his family through comments made against his family.

“This is a time where Mr. Cohen had to put his family and their safety first,” said Davis.



Ainsworth: MISS MANNERLY offers her wisdom and advice

By Laura Ainsworth, Staff writer

Dear Miss Mannerly:

I wish to remain anonymous, but just to give you some background, I am the powerful chief executive of a HUUUUGE entity (and no, I don’t mean Google). This year, I received an invitation to speak at a prestigious venue, just as the person in my job traditionally does every year (in fact, I did so last year, and it turned out quite well, if I do say so.) But due to an unrelated dispute, the person who invited me this year –-- different person from last year, not a nice person!! –- has now dis-invited me. To my knowledge, this has never, ever happened before. Since she had already invited me, I wasn’t sure how to respond.

I wrote back with what I thought was a very polite letter. This is it…



Holy Love

By Anonymous

A newsletter reader facing terminal cancer submitted this beautiful sonnet about how facing death has deepened his faith.

My soul wants to cry for aid
under a lowering sky.
But that's not how this game is played,
for I am marked to die.
The boon of palliative care
was never meant for me;
and it's in no way unfair
because now, on bended knee
I can behold in full a gentle Grace;
pain's opened divinity's door
and gave me glimpse of smiling Face;
how could I ask for more?
The clouds may be so grey above,
but over them, shines Holy Love.
