“I don’t see what this indictment (of Paul Manafort) has to do with anything the special counsel is authorized to investigate.”

What did he say??

These words were uttered Friday by U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III of the Eastern District of Virginia during a hearing concerning the ongoing prosecution of former Trump campaign head Manafort for charges stemming from his activities several years before his work for Trump and previously examined by the FBI. According to a Reuters report, he stated the obvious: that special counsel Robert Mueller should not have unlimited scope in his investigation into Russian election-tampering and alleged collusion with the Trump campaign. “It’s unlikely you’re going to persuade me the special counsel has unfettered power to do whatever he wants,” Ellis said to Michael Dreeben, the deputy solicitor general who is currently working in Mueller’s office and was unlucky enough to be appearing at this hearing.

Ellis said, “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort...You really care about what information Mr. Manafort cn give you to lead you to Mr. Trump and an impeachment, or whatever.”

It was an “emperor’s new clothes” moment –- one person speaking aloud what most everyone secretly can see but dares not say.

Support for Democrats within this key group is slipping

By Mike Huckabee

A recent poll found that while young voters still lean heavily toward the Democrats (nice work, peer pressure, biased media and leftist professors!), there is a noticeable erosion and more support for Republican Congressional candidates, especially among white Millennials. And I wouldn't be surprised to see rising erosion among black Millennials as well.

If the GOP wants to keep Congress, then they should trumpet this story far and wide. Remind young voters that during the Obama years that they were repeatedly told were the coolest time ever, there were long lines of people competing for every job and it looked as if they’d spend the rest of their lives sleeping on mom’s couch and trying to pay off staggering college loan debt with their tips from Starbucks. Now, after just over a year of a GOP House and Senate with Trump in the White House, unemployment is so low and business expansion is so strong that employers are competing for workers.

President unveils new executive order

By Mike Huckabee

Thursday was the National Day of Prayer, and during the observance at the White House, President Trump announced the creation of the White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative. It’s a new office aimed at protecting Americans’ religious liberty. Trump said it “will help design new policies that recognize the vital role of faith in our families, our communities and our great country.” Trump also issued an executive order that “It shall be the policy of the executive branch to vigorously enforce Federal law’s robust protections for religious freedom.” It also instructs the IRS not to target churches or faith-based groups because they speak out on political or moral issues from a religious perspective. You can read more details at the link.

I continue to hear liberals questioning why Evangelicals back Trump when he does so many things of which they should disapprove: his sometimes blue language, his background as a playboy, etc. Part of it is our community believes in forgiveness and redemption, so we don’t necessary hold things that people did years ago against them today. We also don’t hold people to unreasonable standards of perfection because we realize there was only one perfect person among us, and that was 2,000 years ago. We tend to judge people more by their current actions, and there’s no question that Trump has been the best President at protecting religious liberties since…well, possibly ever. Many Presidents have paid lip service to protecting religious freedom but not taken much action. Trump didn’t just make campaign promises, he’s keeping and surpassing them.



Too many boys

By Mike Huckabee

You know the problem with the Boy Scouts? Too many boys. At least, that seems to be the brilliant thinking behind the Boy Scout organization’s latest effort to combat declining membership by dropping the word “Boy” and just becoming the gender-neutral “Scouts BSA,” to reflect that they now let in girls, too.

Apparently, none of them ever earned a merit badge in biology or they would know (brace yourself, this will probably get flagged as “hate speech”) boys and girls are different. The move is not only garnering criticism from parents, it’s also being blasted from an unlikely source: the Girl Scouts. While their official statement claimed they were unconcerned, some Girl Scout leaders told the media that they’re also fighting declining enrollment and if the Boy Scouts (oops, sorry: the Generic Scouts) want to attract more members, why don’t they target the 90% of boys who currently aren’t Scouts instead of competing with them for the girls?

"Me Too" scores victory

By Mike Huckabee

We should acknowledge that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has at long last done the right thing by voting to expel Bill Cosby and director Roman Polanski from the Oscars organization. To show how far attitudes have shifted on tolerating sexual harassment and sexual assault in Hollywood, the vote to expel came less than a week after Cosby was found guilty on three charges of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in 2004.

By contrast, the ejection of Polanski comes exactly 40 years after he pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, then fled to Europe to avoid punishment (that was a plea bargain charge; what he was actually accused of doing was drugging and sodomizing a 13-year-old girl.) It also comes 15 years after the Academy honored him with a Best Director Oscar and some of the same stars who recently gave themselves standing ovations for speaking up against sexual predators gave Polanski a standing ovation. They also patted themselves on the back for defiantly defending his artistic prowess against us intolerant conservatives who never believed that being talented at directing or acting was an excuse for raping anyone, let alone children (note to Polanski: let children alone!) It’s nice to see that it took only four decades for the celebrities who lecture us mere mortals on our inferior, unenlightened morals to agree with us on that point.

But while the “Me Too” movement has finally scored a major court victory against a Hollywood celebrity, shamed the Oscar people into ejecting rapists, and claimed a number of scalps in the acting and TV news realms, there’s one place you’d expect to be ultra-sensitive to mistreatment of women, yet the movement seems to have stalled there. That’s in the Democratic Party, which lionizes Bill Clinton and Ted “Cocktail Waitress sandwich” Kennedy.
