On Tuesday, the day before Attorney General William Barr was set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Washington Post oh-so-coincidentally came out with a sensational story about Robert Mueller complaining in a letter to Barr a month ago that Barr’s four-page conclusion didn’t capture the “context, nature and substance” of the special counsel report. Predictably, the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) went into histrionics over that. Sen. Richard Blumenthal called it “an unprecedented, stunning rebuke” of the attorney general by the special counsel. Rep. Maxine Waters said Barr should resign or otherwise face (what else?) impeachment. It went on and on, so I’ll spare you any more.

Let’s dispense with this non-event so we can move on to more important things. Way far down in that same story, it was reported that Mueller “emphasized that nothing in the attorney general’s March 24 conclusion was inaccurate or misleading,” that he was just concerned that the media coverage of it might be giving the wrong idea. Well, Washington Post, that just totally cancels out your headline and renders this a non-story, doesn’t it? Did you read your own story, WAPO? Are you aware that Mueller had to know from the start of his investigation that it was based on essentially nothing in the way of evidence, so he would have had to draw the same conclusion as Barr, albeit reluctantly? Are you also aware that Mueller was given the option of reading Barr’s conclusion before it was released to Congress but chose not to?

Too easily offended

By Mike Huckabee

A new Morning Consult poll found that 81% of Americans think that people these days are too easily offended.  The other 19% were incredibly offended by that and think that those 81% should be fired and never allowed to work again and put in stocks and publicly shamed.  

No, I’m only joking about the second statistic.  Although they’ll probably demand to put me in stocks after they hear that I actually made a joke. 

The 81% who think people are too easily offended include 94% of Republicans, 82% of independents and even 70% of Democrats!

The poll also found that only 34% of Americans would call themselves “politically correct.”  Seventy-five percent have censored their words and actions when with people “different” from themselves; 72% agree that “rules about what you can and cannot say change so fast it’s difficult to keep up;” and 65% agree that “people should be able to say what they really think, even if it might offend people.” That includes 75% of Republicans, 66% of independents and even 55% of Democrats.

These poll results should be trumpeted far and wide, and especially to corporations and social media companies who react to every Twitter outrage storm like an elephant panicking at the sight of a mouse.  Look at those numbers and remember that the people who are constantly looking for things to be offended by, and getting their jollies by screaming for blood when they find something, aren’t even numerous enough to count as the tail wagging the dog.  They’re the fleas on the tail that’s wagging the dog. 

Sorry if that analogy offends them, but frankly, I don’t care.



Border crisis catches on

By Mike Huckabee

It’s taken only a couple of years, but with the illegal immigration situation on the border so out-of-control that even liberals such as New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman admitted we really do need to build a wall, increasing numbers of Democrats are finally starting to believe their own eyes and agree that there is a crisis.

Only 7% of Democrats believed there was a crisis on the border in January, but a new Washington Post/ABC News poll found that the number has zoomed to 24%.  At this rate, maybe by the time Trump leaves office in 2020, a majority of Democrats will finally believe that there was a crisis on the border, that Trump didn’t collude with Russia, and that he really was the President.  That’s my version of “Hope and Change.”


Sad cautionary tale

By Mike Huckabee

This is a sad cautionary tale for all of those who want Canadian-style government health care in America.  It’s also a serious example of the truth behind the old joke about how America can’t adopt Canadian-style government health care because then, where would Canadians go when they really need to see a doctor?

Praising Antifa

By Mike Huckabee

I’ve been writing for several years now about the leftist group Antifa, and how their name, which is short for “Anti-fascist,” is laughable, since they engage in fascist tactics such as putting on masks and using threats, intimidation and violence to silence differing political views.  They’ve punched and beaten people, threatened opponents’ families and set fires with Molotov cocktails. They’re not “anti-fa,” they’re “fa.” 

Yet Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) continue to scoff at Republican claims that they are a violent, threatening organization.  In his Presidential announcement, Joe Biden even praised Antifa as a “courageous group of Americans” – ironically, while denouncing Trump for praising white nationalists, which Trump did not do.

Recently, Antifa hasn’t been in the news as much, but it’s possible that’s because they’ve been busy plotting a big comeback to the public spotlight.  You can read more about it at this link, but here’s a hint: it allegedly turns on a plot that involves illegal guns, Mexican drug cartels and an ongoing FBI investigation.

What a courageous group of Americans!  I guess we can add that to the lifelong-and-still-growing list of important things that Joe Biden got wrong.


Quiet note to Sen. Chuck Grassley

By Mike Huckabee

Quiet note to Sen. Chuck Grassley: I appreciate your frustration and the farmers’ suffering.  But didn’t we learn from Obama what a lousy idea it is when you are in standoff to tell your adversary exactly how long he has to hold out before you’ll cave in and give up?


Quotes from our Presidents

“Be fit for more than the thing you are now doing. Let everyone know that you have a reserve in yourself; that you have more power than you are now using. If you are not too large for the place you occupy, you are too small for it.”
- Chester A. Arthur


Biden's "permanent record" under scrutiny

By Mike Huckabee

Joe Biden is learning that these days, the “permanent record” kids used to be threatened with is all too real, and his past is being used against him -  not by his opponents but by those in his own party who don’t want him to be the nominee.  We’ve already seen the handsy clips, the Anita Hill quotes and the questionable Ukraine connections resurfacing.  Now, it’s his support for Confederate General Robert E. Lee.  Say what?!

Back in 1975, Senator Biden voted to reinstate Lee’s US citizenship.  To be fair, it wasn’t considered controversial then – the vote was unanimous (and I suspect some of the Senators in office at that time had probably known Lee personally.)  But as we’ve all learned, complaining that you’re being held to a standard that didn’t even exist at the time is no excuse for the politically “woke.”  Any variance from current, ever-changing PC dogma is reason enough to toss you on the scrap heap of history, alongside such monsters as Stephen Foster and Kate Smith.  



Vaccination Poll Results

By Mike Huckabee

With over 33,000 responses to this question: Do you support local government mandating vaccinations during a health crisis like the measles outbreak in parts of the country?


57.9% NO


37.5% YES

    That's more than a little scary about the number of people being against mandatory vaccinations for measles.

    I wonder what kind of epidemic it willl take to convince people that it pays to prepare in advance for a health crisis. More polio outbreaks? More tubercolosis? How many children will have birth defects from the spread of rubella? It's SOO easy to prevent.

    Mr Huckabee, Please clarify something for me. "At this rate, maybe by the time Trump leaves office in 2020, a majority of Democrats will finally believe that there was a crisis on the border, that Trump didn’t collude with Russia, and that he really was the President. That’s my version of “Hope and Change.” I can't believe you actually believe that our President Trump will be leaving office in 2020. I love your news. It always seems truthful and to the point. I love your daughter for the same reason. But do not agree that President Trump will be leaving in 2020. I truly believe he is a "two termer", actually he has to be as the Dems haven't allowed him to do everything he wants to do. Anway, thank you and God Bless.

    "At this rate, maybe by the time Trump leaves office in 2020...", I think you made an unintentional error...Don't you mean 2024!
