When we were in high school, we all read the classic poem “If,” a spot-on description of maturity by Rudyard Kipling. It starts, “If you can keep your head while all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you...” This line was written in 1895, but we face the same challenge in America in 2018, as the vast majority of those in the mainstream media and popular culture appear to have gone out of their ever-loving minds.

If you’d like to read the entire poem and contemplate the nature of real character, a rare and wonderful thing, here it is. Then come back, and we can resume our discussion. Don’t worry; you will not be tested afterwards.

Now, back to the media.

The Democrats' "God Gap"

By Mike Huckabee

I’ve written before about how the Democrats and the Republicans have fundamentally different electoral strategies. Republicans try to convince over 50% of voters that their solutions work and they should get together to support them. Democrats adopt a “divide and conquer” strategy, dividing voters up into many warring identity groups and telling each they’re getting a raw deal that only the Democrats can fix, in hopes of piecing together enough smaller groups to add up to over 50%. The problem with that is that it inevitably tears the country apart by fostering rivalries and resentments between groups, corrodes national unity and harms America as a whole.

It also means the Democrats are constantly hustling to keep each of their separate groups happy, like jugglers on the “Ed Sullivan Show,” rushing from one spinning plate on a stick to another to try to keep them from crashing down. But there are signs that some of the plates are wobbling. I already told you about the Reuters poll that found Millennials, especially young white males, were drifting away from the Democrats. Another new poll found, possibly due to listening to Kanye West and seeing how he was pilloried for expressing independent thought, support for Trump among blacks has risen and among black men, it’s doubled to 22% in just one week.

Fmr US Attorney: Mueller should stand down

By Mike Huckabee

For those who enjoy parsing the actual laws rather than indulging in partisan fantasies about collusion and impeachment, National Review has an excellent article by former US Attorney Andrew C. McCarthy. He analyzed the alleged list of 49 questions Robert Mueller wants to ask President Trump. His verdict: Trump should decline to talk to him and Mueller should just stand down.

McCarthy believes that judging from the questions he allegedly wants to ask, Mueller has found no evidence of any real crimes and is now trying to force Trump to reveal what his thoughts, attitudes and intentions were when he was making executive decisions that he clearly had the Constitutional authority to make, in hopes of finding a way to charge him for something he says in the testimony, like wanting to obstruct an investigation that was never actually obstructed in any way. As McCarthy notes, Mueller has a habit of turning witness interviews into false statement prosecutions. In short, he’s trying to spin something out of nothing, or at least not enough of anything to justify continuing to distract America’s Chief Executive over, and he needs to wrap it up and let the President get back to governing.



Trump wins major concession from Kim Jong-Un

By Mike Huckabee

President Trump has yet to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un about dismantling his nuclear program, but he’s already won a major concession: Kim has released three Korean-American US citizens, a businessman and two university workers, who had been imprisoned for years. They’ve reportedly been moved from a horrific forced labor camp to a tourist hotel to recuperate, and will be allowed to return home soon.

Meanwhile, Trump has assembled a team led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to plan the summit and be prepared for any surprises, to insure that Kim is forced to give up his nuclear ambitions. Pompeo said the outcome isn’t certain, but one thing is: “This administration will not repeat the mistakes of the past. Our eyes are wide open. It’s time to solve this once and for all. A bad deal is not an option.”

Anti-Trump media outlets make a federal case out of Rudy comments

By Mike Huckabee

The big story from yesterday seems to be Rudy Giuliani saying on Fox News that President Trump reimbursed his lawyer for a $130,000 “shut up and go away” payment to porn star Stormy Daniels over an alleged one-night tryst 11 years ago.

Some people are saying this is a nothingburger, and it actually undercuts a legal threat to Trump because it wasn’t campaign money (hence Giuliani, who is a lawyer, purposely saying it.) The anti-Trump media outlets are making a federal case out of it (“We’ve got that wily wabbit now!!”) I’m not a lawyer and don’t know about the legalities. I also don’t know what the full story is: Rudy didn’t make it clear whether Trump knowingly reimbursed his attorney for this specific expense or just had him on a retainer to repay all expenses paid on his behalf (I hate to break it to Trump haters, but people who run both multi-billion-dollar corporations and presidential campaigns don’t vet every expense personally.) I also don’t know the answer to the question that millions of Americans must be asking themselves: if this woman accepted $130,000 to shut up and go away, then why won’t she shut up and go away already?

    Several news sources have reported that North Korea's missile and nuclear test facility is out of operation. The nuclear testing shook the ground so much that the mountain is unstable. It also has been reported that radiation is spewing out the top of the mountain, exposing the North Koreans. So, people are wondering if this is the real reason why Kim Jun-un suspended his activity.
