Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen reportedly spent 70 hours being questioned by the special counsel. And if the questioning tactics were as abusive as those described by Jerome Corsi, there’s no telling what they got him to say. Cohen pleaded guilty in federal court on Friday to one count of lying to Congress about what they’re calling “the Moscow project,” Trump’s exploratory efforts to build a Trump Tower hotel in Moscow. Cohen had told Congress that discussions ended in January of 2016, but he later told the special counsel that they went on for several more months, while Trump was running for President.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that. The discussions, I mean. They were perfectly legal. Lying to Congress, that’s wrong.

BuzzFeed put out a story that has been slammed by Trump as false --- it wouldn’t be the first time BuzzFeed has run “fake news” --- that as part of the negotiations, the Trump Organization planned to give Vladimir Putin the $50 million penthouse in Trump Tower Moscow, as a way to induce Russian oligarchs to live there.

President H.W. Bush passes

By Huckabee staff

I first met President George HW Bush in 1980 in Little Rock when he was a candidate for President. He ultimately became Ronald Reagan's Vice-President and I met him again at a Bassmaster's Classic in Pine Bluff, Arkansas where he (an avid angler) presented the trophies. When I ran for my first political race, he was running for re-election as President and he called me to encourage me. That he took the time to do that was remarkable. He was a thoughtful leader, and his life was one of sacrifice and service, starting with his heroic service as a fighter pilot in WWII where he was shot down in the Pacific, but survived to start his own business in Midland, Texas, later became Congressman, Ambassador, Director of the CIA, Chairman of the GOP, Vice President, President, and forever senior statesman and patriarch until his death after a long, adventurous and exceptional life. Janet and I are saddened to learn that his exceptional life has ended, but celebrate a life "Done Well."

"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

December is finally here, and I have an early Christmas gift for you: a brand new episode of “Huckabee” tonight on TBN!  Sen. Mike Lee will drop by to talk criminal justice reform. Oregon Judge Vance Day will reveal the surprise ending to his felony trial that he claims was really an attempt to destroy him for his belief in traditional marriage. You’ll meet a Huck’s Hero who embodies the word “caregiver.”  But you’ll also laugh yourself silly at the comedy songs of Paul Aldrich, and catch up on some goofy news “In Case You Missed It.”  I’ll have some personal commentaries along the way.  Then top it all off with a visit and some great music from Rory Feek of the beloved country duo, Joey + Rory. 

We’ll start unwrapping it all tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, repeated the same times on Sunday, only on TBN.  To find the channel in your local area and to stream previous episodes of “Huckabee,” visit


Alaska earthquake

By Mike Huckabee

In a miraculous turn of events, the 7.0 earthquake that struck the Anchorage, Alaska, area Friday morning (followed by aftershocks of up to 5.0) appears to have claimed no lives, and there were no reports of any major building collapses. However, there is extensive damage to homes and infrastructure.  Roads were lifted up and broken to pieces, power is out in some places, and bridges, gas lines and other infrastructure will have to be assessed for damage.  In case you’re wondering, while this is extreme, it’s not unusual: Alaska averages 40,000 earthquakes a year, with more large ones than all the other states combined.    


There’s more information about the earthquake here:


And yes, Sarah Palin’s home was among those damaged, but fortunately, she and her family were unharmed.

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.

Toys for Tots

By Mike Huckabee

The Marines’ annual Toys For Tots toy drive is underway, and despite it being a great year for the economy and job creation, for some reason, donations are lagging behind.  Corporate donations are running below last year’s, and there is concern that they won’t reach the supply of toys needed to make sure poor children have gifts this Christmas.  With Christmas just 24 days away, time is short and the pressure is on.  I hope you’ll make a donation today to help them out. 

For more information and to make a donation right now, visit

FYI: Toys For Tots is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so monetary donations are tax deductible.  And it’s a top-rated charity: 97% of donations go to provide toys, books and gifts to less fortunate children.  The other 3% covers support costs.  From their website: “Not one donated dollar goes to pay for salaries or any other manpower costs.”  That’s right, there are no overpaid executives with their hands in the till; Toys For Tots is run by volunteers doing their all to make sure Christmas is merry for every child. Please join them to make that happen again this year.  


Federal judge rules against Trump policy

By Mike Huckabee

Yet another federal judge, this time in New York, has ruled unconstitutional President Trump’s policy of denying federal grant funds to “sanctuary cities” that refuse to obey federal immigration law or cooperate with ICE. Let’s hope the Supreme Court will deal with this and quickly, since we now have federal judges not only trying to usurp power over immigration and border security policies, but also ruling that we have to keep shoveling our tax money to local authorities who are in open rebellion against the federal government and allowing criminals to go free to rob, rape and murder the very same Americans who are paying the taxes to provide their grants. Let’s hope the Supreme Court sees that this is as crazy as a judge in 1863 ordering President Lincoln to keep sending federal money to the Confederate states.  


Of course, we’ve also learned that even being slapped down by the SCOTUS for their blatant overreach of power doesn’t stop some federal judges from doing it again and again.  Solving that problem won’t take a change in policy, it will take a lot of changes in judges.  With a new 53-seat majority for the next two years, let’s hope the President and Senate make a big dent in fixing that problem.

    In your article "Federal judge rules against Trump policy" the comment was made "Let’s hope the Supreme Court sees that this is as crazy as a judge in 1863 ordering President Lincoln to keep sending federal money to the Confederate states." Actually the money flowing the other way was a primary reason for the war. In 1860 the southern states were funding about 85% of the total federal budget and nearly all that money was being spent in the northern states on "improvements". The Morrill Tariff had just been passed to immediately double the tariff taxes on the south with additional increases in later years. Instead of Lincoln sending federal money south, the southern states seceded to keep the Yankee controlled federal government from driving them into poverty with their tariff taxes. Why did Lincoln send federal troops into the South? He told a delegation of the Young Men's Christian Associations of Baltimore on April 23, 1861 when urged to follow a policy of peace, "And what shall become of the revenue? I shall have no government - no resources?" Any questions?
