From Tom:

Okay, I want to challenge you with personal action and a question. Firstly, you say you read these; well, prove it, Mike. Respond to my question, and that is what the hell happened to our two-party system? Why is it that this President has few in his own party supporting him. We should not forget that Mitch McConnell could have allowed a Senate vote and this President could have gone on to build the wall we need. But the Senate leader refused, citing a political environment problem –- (bleep), he sold this President out. So prove my cynical brain wrong and write back to me...with your answer about the Republican Party.

From me:

Tom, you do have a cynical brain if you think I don’t read the comments. It’s just impossible to follow up on each one personally, so we try to address a representative few in the newsletter.

As for the two-party system, America’s founders foresaw the hazards of that and did not want it, but that’s the way the political power struggle evolved, and in very short order.

My weekend monologue

By Mike Huckabee

I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t have anxiety about a personal health crisis. And adding to the anxiety is the thought that a gall bladder attack, a kidney stone, or a broken arm would take every last dime in one’s savings account. And if it was a heart attack, stroke, or cancer, the fear of a possible terminal illness plus bankruptcy is a legitimate cause for stress. So when politicians of either party promise “health care for all,” or something similar, we want to believe they really mean it as much as we want to believe in the tooth fairy or unicorns or that we’re going to win the Publisher’s Clearinghouse Sweepstakes.

State of the Union guests

By Mike Huckabee 

Just as I predicted, Republicans are going to make sure that when President Trump gives his State of the Union Address in the House, in the face of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and fellow Democrats who back her willful refusal to acknowledge the serious negative consequences of lax border and immigration control, the guest gallery will be filled with living examples of the pain caused by those policies.  Anyone who can look into the face of these grieving families and still tell us that the problem is “manufactured” either has no heart or thinks we have no brains.

"Unplanned"

By Mike Huckabee

Talk about perfect timing for releasing a movie: Next month, the distributors of the Christian movie hit “God’s Not Dead” will release a new film about the abortion industry called “Unplanned.”  It’s the dramatic true story of Abby Johnson, who managed a Planned Parenthood clinic and defended abortion as a compassionate service for women – until one day, her life changed when she was asked to help out with an abortion and was horrified when she saw with her own eyes what it really was.  She then became a pro-life advocate who knew the truth the other side tries desperately to keep hidden, which made her one of the #1 enemies and targets of Planned Parenthood and the pro-abortion lobby. 

With many Democrats vying to outdo each other in dropping the facade of “safe, legal and rare” and celebrating outright infanticide, this looks like a must-see film – hopefully one that will be seen by a wide audience so it can change hearts and minds, and not just by people who are already pro-life.  It looks like a terrific film, too, judging from the trailer, which you can watch at the link.  I’m sure that when the release date draws closer, you’ll be hearing more about this on my TBN show.

SPLC in trouble

By Mike Huckabee

The Southern Poverty Law Center (which claims to be a monitor of “hate groups,” but which I believe is possibly the best-funded hate group in America) already had to pay a $3.375 million settlement to a group that opposes Islamic extremism for falsely labeling it as an “extremist group.” That emboldened other mainstream Christian and conservative groups that have been defamed by the SPLC to prepare legal actions.  But one particular new lawsuit must really have the SPLC quaking (I won’t call them Quakers, since they probably think that’s a hate group, too.)  

A Baltimore attorney who was branded as a “neo-Nazi lawyer” by the SPLC is suing them on nine counts, including not only defamation but racketeering (under the RICO Act), mail and wire fraud, making false statements on tax forms and other violations.  The attorney says the SPLC's article attacking him referenced documents stolen from a white nationalist group for which the SPLC paid.  

Receiving and paying for stolen documents is not only illegal, it’s an ethics violation that could cost the SPLC its 501c3 “public interest group” status.  Being accused of bias and libel apparently doesn’t faze them, but the thought of losing their tax-exempt status must have terrified them because they’ve just hired one of the best defamation defense attorneys in America.  I’m sure he’s also one of the most expensive, so all you donors to the SPLC should know that the money you give to fight “hate” is not only being spent to mislabel and destroy legitimate mainstream religious and conservative groups but also to defend the SPLC’s right to break the law while doing it.

US drops out

By Mike Huckabee

In its latest smackdown of Vladimir Putin, the Trump Administration announced that the US will withdraw from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty with Russia.  Both the Trump Administration and the EU accuse Russia of violating the arms treaty for years, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned in December that the US would withdraw in 60 days if Russia didn’t stop violating it. It looks as if Trump is making good on his threat.

You know, if Putin really is Trump’s “puppet master” as Democrats keep telling us, he sure is doing a lousy job of keeping his strings untangled.

More excellent timing

By Mike Huckabee

And more excellent timing: A man in Shawnee, Kansas, was arguing with his wife over his spending too much money on lottery tickets when he looked at the computer to check his numbers and saw that he’d won $22,000.  He said, “When I showed my wife how much I had won, she immediately quit bickering.” 

I hope he enjoyed that feeling because the one thing that happens even less often than winning the lottery is winning an argument with your wife.  Having both happen at once is about as rare as winning the Powerball lottery when you forgot to buy a ticket.

Ashton Kutcher's brave stand

By Mike Huckabee

Let’s also throw a big salute to actor Ashton Kutcher, for having the guts and the moral character to risk his career in Hollywood to take a stand for the sanctity of life.  In a Facebook post he titled, “Everyone’s life is valuable,” he shared a video of Special Olympian and actor Frank Stephens speaking before Congress in 2017 about the tragic trend of women being encouraged to abort babies with Down syndrome.

Stephens told Congress that “the people pushing this particular 'final solution' are saying that people like me should not exist,” but "whatever you learn today, please remember this: I am a man with Down syndrome and my life is worth living."

There’s much more at the link.  Please click to watch the full inspiring video and read the whole story.  If you’ve seen it before, then watch it again.  It’s a message that desperately needs to be stated over and over at this dark moment in history, when some people are abusing government power to devalue human life.  And thanks to Ashton Kutcher, for bravely using his popular social media platform to spread this message, which has now generated over 100,000 shares.

    I've been leaving comments on other websites in hope to bring awareness toward the Green New Deal and it's impact on the trucking industry. I think it will completely do away with the entire industry if it passes, thereby destroying lots businesses including the independent contractors. I don't know of any semi-truck that runs on electric power alone. Unless I'm wrong, I don't think an electric car would have the power to pull a large container full of products across the country in a limited amount of time. As far as I know, a fully electric car can only go 100 miles before it needs 12 hours to recharge. Won't the plan eliminate the largest and more cost efficient way to ship goods across the country and severely limit our choices? What would that do for the cost in getting their goods across the country? How much would prices go up if it makes it harder to get products to the market? I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject. Thank you for listening.

    Beverly I am sorry you got “branded” with my comments about Krispy Cream donuts bet. I have told this “yAwho” moderator several times my comments get place under other people’s names…BUT like Paul Ryan they have done nothing to correct the problem. Therefore, I am betting myself another box of Krispy Cream donuts this does not get published as well......
    When the what appears to be an “after-life” abortion bill was passed I said, "doesn’t this eliminate the “term” murder from the laws?" When or what age does abortion stop and murder begins? Seems like the “after-life abortion law passed” it would negate any murder conviction. Would NOT any defense attorney not have the right to say…”Your honor, might client did NOT murder this person…they simply “aborted" him.” That would be one “creative bookkeeping” way to reduce the murder rate in NY, Chicago, Virginia, and just about anywhere else that after-life abortion is legal. However, anyone who has witnessed an abortion, and seen how that powerful vacuum cleaner shreds the human into jagged pieces of bloody meat would think twice about abortions. We have the scientific technology to make abortions humane, but we choose the "human veggie-matic" method because it’s cheaper.

    Thank you, Mike, for the Bible verse every day. I wish the Republicans would all wear MAGA hats to the State of the Union. It would even out the insults the Democrats do to the president for not clapping or standing. Helen
