The worst thing about the following story –- like other con games –- is that it might inhibit normally generous people from giving to those genuinely in need. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.

A year ago, an appeal appeared on GoFundMe called “Pay It Forward.” It told the story of Johnny, a homeless veteran in Philadelphia who, according to the story, spent his days holding a sign on the highway. A young woman had written dramatically of running out of gas, heading out on foot in the cold to find the nearest gas station, and Johnny coming up to her, telling her to get back in the car and lock the doors. “A few minutes later, he comes back with a red gas can,” she wrote. “Using his last 20 dollars to make sure I could get home safe.”

How on earth did Sinema beat McSally in Arizona?

By Mike Huckabee

The outcome of the Sinema-McSally Senate race in Arizona is disappointing and even baffling, especially considering that Republican Gov. Doug Ducey won by double digits.  Could voters who supported the incumbent governor really turn around and vote for Democrat Sinema over Republican McSally?  If it wasn’t a case of “finding” votes, as appears to be happening under our noses in two Florida counties, what is the explanation?


Jon Gabriel, editor of RICOCHET, sees five factors that kept McSally from doing better and helped put Sinema over.  They range from McSally’s very cautious and controlled campaign, to the barrage of intensely negative ads she ran (compared to Sinema’s positive flag-waving), to the left’s organization --- and plenty of money, from the likes of Tom Steyer’s NextGen America --- behind Sinema, to even McSally’s friendship with the late Sen. John McCain, which was off-putting to many strong conservatives.


I would add that Sinema painted herself as a moderate when she really is not.  (Wish more people had seen and taken seriously the Project Veritas video of her campaign office.)  Once she’s in the Senate for a comfortable six-year term, she’ll no doubt be as “progressive” as any of the other leftist newbies, or oldies for that matter.


Anyway, whoever plans to be involved one day in campaigning as a conservative needs to read this and learn.


Yes, the President could discontinue press briefings (BUT HE WON'T)

By Mike Huckabee

While outgoing Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake is, unsurprisingly, siding with CNN in its lawsuit against the White House over “journalist” Jim Acosta’s ouster, lawyers for the administration have asserted that President Trump could bar “all reporters” from the White House if he wanted to, for any reason he saw fit.


Imagine the steam coming out of all the ears of all the so-called news professionals right now.  They’re going even crazier than they already were, even though the President is not actually calling for any such thing.  This merely sets the negotiating table, giving Trump plenty of room for doing what he DOES want to do; namely, ban a partisan disrupter who acts like a jerk and doesn’t even know when to relinquish the microphone to an intern.


The whole debate is patently ridiculous.  Before he’s allowed back, Acosta must understand that he needs to remember where he is --- the WHITE HOUSE --- and conduct himself accordingly.  When told to give up the microphone, he should stop grandstanding and hand it over immediately.  In the meantime, CNN has a host of other “journalists” it could send who no doubt despise Trump every bit as much as Acosta does but can be counted on to remain at least somewhat professional in the Briefing Room.


The ban on Acosta does not limit media access to Trump in any way.  It only denies the ability for Acosta to get himself on video “accosting” the President.


This is a good time to remind everyone that these press briefing circuses (complete with man-eating tigers) haven’t always been in existence.  In that respect, they’re kind of like modern State Of The Union addresses, which used to be accomplished in the form of a letter.  We tend to build everything up into "the biggest show on Earth" and have become accustomed to these productions, but we don’t need them.  There’s certainly nothing in the Constitution that requires them.  If we even just tried taking the cameras out of the Briefing Room, reporters might go back to gathering news and Jim Acosta might start acting like a gentleman, though I’m not holding my breath for the latter.




By Mike Huckabee

You can’t prevent every crime, but you can prevent those perpetrated by known criminals who are already in custody.  Unless, of course, those criminals are illegal immigrants in liberal “sanctuary cities,” where virtue-signaling is more important the lives of US citizens. 


I’m sickened to have to keep reporting stories like this, but here’s the latest one: Police in Middlesex County, New Jersey, defied an order to turn over Mexican citizen Luis Rodrigo Perez to ICE and instead freed him from jail, despite his violent record.  He’s now been arrested for allegedly murdering two young men and a woman in Missouri.  They received no sanctuary from him or from New Jersey's deadly, misguided "sanctuary" policy.


If you make a dumb mistake one time, it might be forgivable.  But when you persist in willfully and defiantly repeating the same dumb mistake over and over, no matter how many people have to die because of your bullheaded stupidity, then it’s time for adults to come in and take that decision away from you.

The Baltic Experience 2019

By Mike Huckabee

I am thrilled to announce an unforgettable trip to the Baltics for the summer of 2019! After many years of the Israel Experiences and our most recent trip the Mediterranean Experience cruise, we are bringing you another phenomenal cruise, the Baltic Experience! This all-inclusive cruise will feature some of the most beautiful places in the Baltic Sea and we will get to travel to and absorb these destinations aboard a luxury cruise ship from the Azamara Cruise line. If you have traveled with us before, you already know that all-inclusive means exactly that and there are no surprises along the way. The Baltic Experience will be no different. And when the weather is often unbearably hot throughout most of the US in August, we will be enjoying the cool and delightful weather that makes travel in the Baltic region perfect. Once again we have the entire ship and will fill our time on board with spectacular entertainment and special guests. In addition to the cruise we have multiple pre and post cruise offerings you can choose from to extend your trip. Our last cruise sold out in record time so we encourage you to get your cabin secured soon. We look forward to traveling with you soon and as always we will work tirelessly and do everything in our control to bring you The Greatest Trip.

See you on the boat,

Mike Huckabee


Not an intern

By Mike Huckabee

“Democratic” socialist Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez complained that she’s being mistaken in Congress for an intern or a Congressional spouse.  I can see how someone might mistake an attractive twenty-something woman for the spouse of a 70-year-old Congressman, but I can’t imagine anyone mistaking her for a Congressional intern.  Those jobs are highly competitive and usually require high grades in school and even written essays to prove that you understand how the government works. 


Judging from her latest comments, the only thing she knows is how to keep her constituents poor and unemployed.  To be fair, that is something at which every socialist is an expert.


Rest easy, America

By Mike Huckabee

Rest easy, America!  Sure, the world is coming to an end due to catastrophic climate change, but we’ll now have a select House Committee approved by Alexandria “I am NOT a Congressional intern” Ocasio-Cortez to stop it.  And not just any committee, but a “select” committee.  I’m sure that will be more effective than the Avengers and the Justice League combined.  


You know you’re getting old when you lose count of how many predicted deadlines you’ve lived through for the environmental apocalypse that’s going to “kill us all!!!”  And now, here comes another, from someone who’s too young to remember the many previous ones (even the Live Aid concert was before her time).  Also at the link, a round-up of some of these long-passed doomsday deadlines. 


I guess I’d be showing my age if I pointed out that this list doesn’t even go all the way back to Ted Danson’s 1988 claim that the oceans would be dead in 10 years and humanity soon after (I’d be glad to sell you a can of tuna for $80, which was another prediction environmentalists made back then); much less Paul Ehrlich’s “The Population Bomb,” the 1968 bestseller that predicted the mass starvation of humans in the ‘70s and ‘80s. 


I predict that 10 years from now, the world will fry from global warming because we cut down so many trees to print junk science books like that.  Prove me wrong!

    SUBVERSION: NO ONE has the integrity to enforce the law! Read it for yourself, and you decide if any person or party is guilty or not? Has anyone suggested grouping aggressive people to gather and riot or aggressive acts/behavior against anyone, has anyone slandered and libeled anyone, has anyone advocated the over-throw of an legal elected person, has anyone made blatant illegal actions against others, or infiltrated borders for their own personal gain often times at the detriment of others, has anyone manipulated votes that they intend to pollute the votes of others..... Has anyone????????????? fill in the blanks....
