Today's Edition



In Liberal Land, Friday’s "impeachment" hearings were a “devastating” day for President Trump as the sympathetic and greatly admirable former Ukrainian ambassador Marie Yovanovitch bravely detailed the terrible shambles President Trump has made of foreign policy with his corruption and ineptness.

In Conservative Land, viewers saw someone who admitted Trump had the unquestioned power to remove her from her job if he didn’t like how she was doing it (he didn’t), that she was gone two months before the phone call that’s under scrutiny was made, and that she had no knowledge of any criminal activity Trump had been involved in, leaving people to question why she was even testifying. It seemed equally clear to them that this is a ginned-up case based on nothing but hurt feelings, differences of opinion, innuendo, hearsay and zero evidence.

Not a great week in the courts

By Mike Huckabee

It wasn’t a great week in courts for those on the right.  Trump confidant and GOP operative Roger Stone could face decades in prison after being convicted in a DC court on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress, related to the Mueller investigation. Details at the link.

I’m not going to make a personal case for Mr. Stone’s character, but it does seem awfully harsh, considering the number of liars, leakers and evidence bleachers on the Democratic side who were allowed to skate away to lucrative book and cable TV deals, just as President Trump fumed.  As with Lt. Gen. Flynn, I think the final story on Stone will rest with an appeals court.

A court also rejected President Trump’s attempts to keep New York prosecutors from obtaining his tax records.  That will also be appealed to the Supreme Court.  Those who argue that this is the correct decision seem fixated on idea that the President is claiming he’s immune from any prosecution. 

But it seems to me that the real issue nobody’s discussing is prosecutorial overreach and misconduct.  You can’t be charged with hiding “evidence” of a crime if there is no charge of a crime.  They just want to be able to rifle through eight years’ worth of his private tax returns, looking for something to charge him with. I might actually side with them if they’d gone to the trouble of naming something he did wrong first, but I’m frankly weary of the endless fishing expeditions.  If you want to subpoena someone’s personal financial records, come up with a legitimate reason first.  Until then, you’re not upholding the law, you’re just pawing through someone’s trash, like tabloid reporters or raccoons.

Also, a jury in San Francisco ordered the undercover journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood to pay the pro-abortion group over a million dollars in damages for committing journalism against them.  It’s a case that should have the media up in arms, since it basically criminalizes undercover exposes.  But protecting abortion seems to be more important to many “news” outlets than protecting their own First Amendment rights.  Throughout the trial, the judge wouldn’t even let the jury see the videos that they were supposedly ruling on.  This will also be appealed.

For those who need a little optimism that the appeals courts might be less partisan, here is some good news to consider:

##Appellation##, I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:

Thanksgiving is approaching, and tonight, you can give thanks early for another new episode of “Huckabee” on TBN!  I’ll talk about this week’s impeachment fiasco with the highest-ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia. The Rev. Frankin Graham (and a very special guest in the audience) will tell us about a great Samaritan’s Purse project.  Dr. Rock Positano will discuss his revealing book about his close friendship with baseball legend Joe DiMaggio.  We’ll visit with one of the greatest voices in inspirational music, Steve Amerson, and give you a sneak preview of an upcoming romantic comedy film with a political twist, starring our guest Nancy Stafford of “Matlock” and “St. Elsewhere” fame.  I’ll also have serious commentary on the news of the week, some goofy news “In Case You Missed It,’ and more surprises.

All this and more is coming tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, on TBN.

Not that there was ever any doubt to anyone who’s been paying attention since 2016, but the relentless impeachment crusade against President Trump, with its constantly changing parade of “grounds,” is about “preventing a potentially disastrous outcome” for Democrats in the 2020 election.  So, did that come from Rush Limbaugh, or Alex Jones?  Nope, it fell straight out of the ever-moving mouth of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

I keep hearing from Nancy Pelosi that this impeachment farce is about exposing the truth, but I believe this may be the first time that’s actually happened. 


Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley demonstrated why she and her three sisters in socialism are known as “The Squad” and not “The Math Squad.”

    Regarding incarceration---to hear some, you would think that criminals have no responsibility, it's not THEIR fault they committed crimes, so they should just not be imprisioned!!! I think there should be some re-think of sentences--someone who was in possession of marijuana should not have a longer sentence than someone who committed rape or murder, or assault. I also think there shouldn't be as much leeway? on how long a sentence is--such as, the swimmer from the CA college had 3 months? (Momma was worried that he wouldn't like it in prison!!!!) and a pro football player got YEARS? Now, THAT is injustice!!!! As is the incarceration of Paul Manafort and the upcoming incarceration of Roger Stone.

    I am one of those (millions) who wonder HOW these sham hearings can be taking place. shifff and pelosi and friends getting to write the rules they want the hearings to go by is insanity. And, from what I hear (heard it from a friend, who heard it from a friend who heard it through the grapevine!! LOL) shiff is CORRECTING the testimony of the "witnesses" at times? For sure, they don't seem to be living in the real world, because that doesn't happen in real life. AND--all electronics EVERY. SINGLE. ELECTRONIC. DEVICE should have to be checked at the door---I'm not sure how shiff could actually know when he wanted to correct testimony while he was checking for the President's tweet--and doing his own tweeting. The same should be for all sessions of congress, there was a picture during I think it was a budget meeting, whatever committee that is--and people were playing solitaire, looking at their phones (and probably tweeting, etc.) No wonder getting legislation is slow--but I suppose those pictured were not on the side of whomever was speaking at the time.

    Thank you for the updates and I enjoy your tv show.

    I don’t understand how Adam Schiff can wield so much control over the information revealed in the “depositions”. How does he get away with releasing only select portions of the depositions to the public when he knows that the Republicans know the whole of those statements? Who gives him such power? Is it legal under House rules? Why doesn’t President Trump sue Schiff for abuse of power? Please explain! Thank you!

    Interesting comments about the number of incarcerated in the United States and our "dark past." If someone touched our lives or those of the squad,illegally, forcefully, deadly, or in any other way, would we want justice in the form of incarceration? I sat in a courtroom while a young man was being tried for the gruesome death of 2 other young people. He is in prison, devastating many families including his own. He took the lives of someone's child and I have sat in meetings with the parents of one of the families, having lost a child myself. No one who has not lost a child of any age can fully understand. I do not believe in the death penalty because sometimes the wrong person is imprisoned and this happens too often to be ignored. The other question I ponder is how many of these incarcerated are Americans, bringing up the question of our illegals or those who were not vetted?
