"Huckabee" Preview

By Mike Huckabee

If you’re not interested in watching Hollywood stars who’ve spent four years calling you a Nazi put on a show about “unity,” I have a great alternative: a new episode of “Huckabee” tonight on TBN! Prof. Alan Dershowitz will talk about “Impeachment 2,” the only flop that ever got a sequel. WalkAway founder Brandon Straka will reveal how Facebook erased his peaceful “leave the Democrats” movement with no warning or reason (you can find it on CloutHub now, and you have even more reason to walk away.) Doug Bender of “I Am Second” will give us a preview of his inspiring new book. Grammy-nominated musician/actor Frank Stallone will tell us about his award-winning new documentary. And we’ll cap it off with Don McLean and a salute to the 50th anniversary of one of the greatest songs of the 20th Century, “American Pie.”

It all starts tonight at 9 EST/8 CST, on TBN. To find out where you can watch TBN, from local cable and broadcast channels to streaming, visit and click on “Channel Finder” on the top menu.

New "Russia Collusion" Revelations

By Mike Huckabee

At this writing, President Trump has yet to release all the promised declassified “Russia Collusion” investigation documents. But Washington reporter John Solomon claims that the revelations in them will include that Nancy Pelosi’s star impeachment witness, British "academic," Fiona Hill, was actually the operative who introduced Igor Danchenko to Christopher Steele, Danchenko being the source who provided a lot of unverified rumors about Trump that masqueraded as evidence. Also, that the entire phony scandal was created and leaked to the media to neutralize Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. Again, that’s from Solomon, so we have to wait and see if that’s confirmed by the documents.

However, on Friday, the Senate Judiciary Committee did release transcripts from its investigation into the “investigation,” and we can see why Chairman Lindsay Graham called the “Crossfire Hurricane” probe of Trump "one of the most incompetent and corrupt investigations in the history of the FBI and DOJ." He said there was “no ‘there’ there,” so it should have been stopped, but the agents kept pushing forward anyway to achieve their desired outcome because of their own biases.

Among the revelations in the transcripts: One FBI agent requested validation of Christopher Steele’s reporting, which started but was stopped by Bill Priestap and (stop me if you’ve heard this name before) Peter Strzok. The agent was so disturbed by their refusal to vet the source of their alleged evidence that he quit the investigation.

The transcripts also show that the FBI was informed as early as January 2017 that the “Steele dossier” was a load of "second and third-hand information and rumors at best;” that it was "unsubstantiated and unreliable" political opposition research; but they continued using it as evidence to get FISA court warrants and as a basis to appoint a special prosecutor.

Sen. Graham said the leadership of the FBI under former Director James Comey and former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was "either grossly incompetent" or that "they knowingly allowed tremendous misdeeds"…"There was a blind eye turned toward any explanation other than the Trump campaign was colluding with foreign powers. At every turn, the FBI and DOJ ran stop signs that were in abundance regarding exculpatory information." (And yet, we still have to endure moral lectures from James Comey.)

In summation, he said, "The FISA court was lied to. Exculpatory information was withheld on those being investigated. The investigators, with some notable exceptions, were incredibly biased and used the powers of law enforcement for political purposes. The subjects of the investigation had their lives turned upside down. It is my hope that counterintelligence investigations will be reined in and this never happens again in America."

Sadly, considering that the very people responsible are already being lined up for top jobs in a Biden Administration (and you could argue that one of the people most responsible was Joe Biden himself), I wouldn’t bet the farm on it not ever happening again.

Evidence-Free Jihad Against The GOP

By Mike Huckabee

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, having twice impeached President Trump without evidence, now apparently wants to prosecute Republican House members for allegedly aiding the Capitol rioters, again without evidence.

Pelosi’s desire to expel elected Representatives just for supporting what they assumed would be a peaceful rally or using their Constitutional power to challenge a vote they considered suspect was so over the top that even a liberal columnist in the Washington Post condemned it. He pointed out that under such a House precedent, “any member who helps to organize a mass rally that is disliked by a super majority of Congress could be at risk of expulsion or censure. We cannot have a democracy where minorities are subject to sanction when they legally protest against an existing majority.”

And here’s more on the evidence-free jihad against GOP House members:

I must be getting old. I remember when Democrats thought that convicting people without evidence was a bad thing – except certain Southern Democrats, who specialized in it.


New Information About The Riot

By Mike Huckabee

I have said since the tragic and inexcusable violence that broke out last week in the US Capitol that everyone involved should be brought to justice. Some people tried to say it was Antifa people in Trump garb, but some of the participants have already been identified as Trump supporters. Some may be from far-right extremist groups who planned to start trouble (and Trump’s speech had nothing to do with it)…

Some others may have just been Trump supporters who followed along, not knowing what they were getting into. But if they participated in rioting, then they have to be held accountable. Our side can’t have the kind of double standard the left engages in, posturing as defenders of law and order over riots by their political opponents while excusing and even enabling riots by their own side. So I want it made clear that I will not cut any slack for Trump supporters who acted violently and broke the law. In fact, I expect them to act responsibly, which I can’t say of the leftists.

All that said, however, I still want the investigators to identify everyone responsible for that riot, and to make them publicly and legally accountable. And the more we’re learning about it, the more it appears that there might have been more leftist skullduggery than we were first led to believe.

Rather than try to summarize all this, I’ll direct you to this story, which has video from within the Capitol that day (warning: the images are disturbing and some of the language is raw.)

The video appears to show that John Sullivan, the alleged Utah BLM organizer who claims he was only there to record the event, was not only egging on the violence but at one point marvels that “we accomplished this,” (Sullivan claims he was just putting on an act to build rapport with the real rioters – yeah, that’s the ticket!) A blonde woman with him says, “You were right! We did it!” Sullivan replies, “Dude, I was trying to tell you. I couldn’t say much. Is this not going to be the best film you’ve ever made in your life?”

That woman appears to be Jade Sacker, a journalist who’s worked with NBC, NPR and CNN, and who later appeared on CNN with Sullivan to tell Anderson Cooper about what they’d innocently witnessed. Note the fact-check website has a different take on Sacker's credentials.

Also revealed was a series of Sullivan’s posts on a chat site called, on a channel associated with his radical leftist group, Insurgence USA. The posts reveal Sullivan posing in a Trump cap to show how he planned to blend in with Trump supporters and other anti-Trumpers discussing the same tactics and talking about how this is going to be a war and they were planning violent incidents masquerading as Trump rallies.

I know this all sounds like the kind of thing dismissed by the mainstream media as crazy conservative conspiracy theories, but if you go to this link, you can see all of Sullivan’s Discord posts and photos copied directly off the Internet.

Yet despite all these revelations and facing federal charges, Sullivan was released without bail by a federal judge. He was ordered to surrender his passport, be detained at and work from home, no longer use social media, have his internet and computer use monitored, be prohibited from possessing firearms, and stop working for Insurgence USA, although he doesn’t have to give up control of it.

Maybe now, we’re starting to understand why Nancy Pelosi had to rush through her Impeachment 2 sequel without waiting for the evidence to be gathered.

Also worth mentioning: if the violence at the Capitol was planned on Discord, why was Parler shut down?

    Just a question: If someone wants to travel on your cruise and hasn't received the vaccine, does that disqualify them?

    I’m wondering why I haven’t heard any news services, left or right, talk about how the local PG and Montgomery county MD police had been preparing for a riot all week at the Capitol, using the convention center as their base. Did I miss that conversation? I suppose I could have. Why would “officials” from other areas be prepared days ahead, preparing every day, yet the Capitol Police were understaffed? Logically this doesn’t make a lot of sense to me if no one knew there would be trouble at the Capitol. Additionally I was told that police officers from other jurisdictions were immediately given the green light for baton use against the protestors. It was okay to use force at the Capitol but not previously in places like Seattle or even in WDC, against violent BLM and Antifa, when Police were attacked with lasers and other weapons. I was also told that the majority of protestors, true Trump supporters, simply left after being told to do so. Police were well aware the instigators were Antifa etc. Why isn’t anyone interviewing the police officers that were there and saw what happened? Of course I assume the police would be fired if they spoke out and we all know the real story doesn’t play into the lefts scheme and fake news reporting.

    Your January 16, 2021 TV show on TBN was by far the most informative, engaging, and smoothly produced program you've done since I have been a viewer. Thank you for presenting an excellent assembly of guests and commentary.
    Blessings to you and your team.

    The reason they cancelled Parler is to show their “goodness”. After all they are the ones who don’t call names or write rumors about people. They only use terms like Hitler and Stalin and racist and antisemitic because they are fair and know so much more than the little people. It is up to them to protect the little people from themselves because they are so smart. These, mostly younger white men, were no doubt raised in homes that lauded them as being such wonderful creations. Their egos where inflated beyond all reason.
    My dear liberal friends, or you used to be, I want to talk to you about something. I know you believe you are on the side of the righteous but you have no problem with lumping anyone who supported .Trump policies into a deplorables basket guilty of every possible heinous crime. You think we voted for Trump because we like him. Most of us don’t, but we are pretty smart and look at the things he has done for the country. If he is racist he’s pretty bad at it. He did more for black people than anyone of those .Democrat run cities. Most of the Trump voters were appalled at the Capitol rioting. All groups have a few sick people. Sohow would you like it if we lumped all of you together as people who approve of bad schools for minorities, burning, breaking and looting small business if you get upset, shutting down public discourse for people who don’t agree with you like Stalin, Hitler, Mao, and current China. You are so very racist as you don’t treat minorities like regular people. You assume they cannot decide for themselves how they should live and how than can better their positions. You tell them how it is to be, not asking for their input. You are the great smug saviors. So how did that feel. May a little attention to your conscience is in order. Be kind to all. It would be a pleasant change. Vengeance is my saith Nancy Pelosi.

    Bearing false witness;
    Shame on you for claiming to be a christian and lying on this platform and on your TBN program, you’re as bad as your daughter sarah, you are an embarrassment to the christian faith by supporting and defending trump. I strongly suggest you have a talk with the holy spirit while you have time

    Hello Mike. I always enjoy your down-to-earth reports of the "goings-on" in Washington (and around the country). Thank you for your efforts!

    Can you help me with understanding these so-called "Impeachments" of President Trump? a) As I see it, the first attempt was a ridiculous waste of time presenting "evidence" (that wasn't), but the vote ended up NOT impeaching, therefore he WASN"T impeached. If this is correct why is the media saying he WAS impeached? b) The most recent Impeachment last week didn't even allow presentation/debate of evidence but went right to vote. Isn't that a violation of basic legal process? Isn't that a violation of law by the very people that CREATE laws? c) It seems to me that this last proceeding should be immediately reviewed and ruled on by the Judicial system (Supreme Court?). What would it take to get them involved? Seems to me they should just jump into this themselves!

    I wonder if any conservatives other than I that are married to a democrat did not receive their stimulus check while my spouse a democrat did almost a week ago. Do you have any idea if this is happening to others? Are we beginning to see retaliation promised for supporting Trump?

    So much has come out thst builds on your articles. Real news sources have revealed that the government knew about the planned riot before it happened but the DNC shot down any efforts to prepare. I hope the remaining RINO's have shown themselves by now.
    1984 is now coming to life.
    Both straight and gay church leaders are aligning with Joe now further eroding the Church's moral authority and deepening the rift between believers
    Unlike the Democrats we now know we that it is an illegal Presidency to start soon
    I advise my friends to be prepared fir Hell on earth. Joe has symptoms of Alzheimer's so Kamala will assume the "throne" soon
    Keep up the good work Mike. We appreciate it.
    I even refer my overseas friends to yours and other reliable sites

    1. Gov. good luck on the impeachment on Ms. Harris. Where can I send a donation?

    2. Why does'nt Lindsay Graham quit talking and do something about it. Talk, Talk, Talk. Thats something most all the current Reps do is talk and when the rubber hits the road they fold like a wet dish towel.
    BTW- we hear Joe Biden is going to pardon or whatever 11 million immigrants on his first day.
    Don't we have a case here for Impeachment? There are laws about entering the country illegally?
    Then if he does that, he is guilty of failure to perform his oath of office at least 11 million times?
    Oh and let not forget the famous, "if you don't get rid of the guy you don't get the billion dollars."
    Can't we say blackmail,collusion, coercion, of a foreign government official? and this man is to be the President of the United States? But I guess as Jesus said,"who is without sin let him cast the first stone." I believe if we as a country would confess and turn back to him we might have a chance to survive. I am very concerned for our children and grandchildren and their children and for this wonderful country God gave us. Lord help us all.

    What I liked about President Trump ...he gave the tools for police and armies abroad to secure there borders so militias are not needed. He provided a secure economy and not Voodoo economics. He identified as the world enemy as Chinese Communist Party. Trump tried to provide an environment which RELIGION and PRO LIFE would flourish. President Trump trie to pry the Democrats head out of the sand and see what is a dange and what is not and that politicians are suppost to provide security for the voters

    Governor, All of this evidence keeps being revealed but to no avail. FBI doj will all fart around till Biden is in office and it will all be swept under the rug. Madam Speaker needs to be held accountable for two hoax impeachments, Biden & Pelosi are both senile old coots. But as I said before, nothing will ever be done for justice,,,,Thanks for the info, also Mr Trump is my president till Jan. 20.

    Quote from your 1-17-21 Morning Edition. "it appears that there might have been more leftist skullduggery than we were first led to believe." and I believe more skullduggery will be coming in the future... When all who were involved on the January 6 "Capitol Incident" are arrested and their backgrounds are checked --- I forsee the following: If the arrested person is a right wing extremest or a standard Trump supporter they will be charged and convicted, sent to Leavenworth Federal Prison for a 10 year sentence... but those who's past history shows they have been involved in Antifa and BLM riots throughout 2020 will have all charges dropped...

    Where to start? I so appreciate receiving your daily emails. They are truly reasoned out and report the facts. But, I must say, I'm a bit discouraged at this point in time. We continue to hear all of the, I would assume illegal, activity by the DEMS and all who support them, but then nothing is done. Is it just me or does much of what is happening seem treasonous? We have laws on the books that don't seem to be enforced. We have crooked federal and for that matter, state judges, who by no stretch of the imagination are impartial. We have a crooked DOJ, FBI, CIA and all the rest of the alphabet. Comey, Clinton, the crime boss, Biden, Obama, Schumer, Salwell, Schiff, and so forth, commit what appears to be crimes and yet, no laws are enforced against them. And please, don't get me started on Pelosi!!!! And AOC and the squad. Then there is Kamela Harris! WOW! The DOJ is negligent in bringing antitrust charges against Apple, FB, Twitter, Google and so on. None of them are charged with any crime against Parlor, and on and on it goes. Night after night Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity tells us about all of this and no one in a position of authority does anything. We were sold out by Barr and it goes on. We owe Nixon and Colson an apology. J. Edgar Hoover seems like a saint compared with the current FBI. When is someone going to start enforcing the laws and crash all of this down around their heads? Let's see some actual arrests and prosecutions! Enough talking!

    You just said on your Newsmax show that Republicans in Georgia were called and told not to vote in the Georgia congress election. Why would anyone even vote in Georgia when republicans have not pushed to have the presidential election fraud investigated! Some say there’s not enough evidence but that’s an opinion. The voter election fraud should still be investigated or our country will NEVER have another fair election!
