I hope you watched President Trump’s brief address last night on border security, and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer’s response.

The media being as it is these days, coverage mostly focused on attempts to twist and hair-split any of the statistics Trump cited, as if that would refute his entire premise that it’s not a good idea for the US to have a porous national border and to be hosting anywhere from 11 to 30 million illegal residents.  There’s also a tendency to focus on style over substance, as if nitpicking Trump’s vocal inflections, necktie, or decision to speak from the Oval Office would refute the importance of what he was saying.  So I’m going to buck the trend and discuss the substance first:

Most tasteless tweet

By Mike Huckabee

The award for the Most Tasteless Tweet during Trump’s speech goes to “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” which snarkily responded to his recounting of Americans killed by illegal immigrants with criminal records with this:  “Is this ‘Oval Office SVU?”  Even fans of the relentlessly anti-Trump comic expressed disgust at that.  I would hope that didn’t come from Meyers himself but from some junior writer who will soon be looking for a job more suited to his talents, maybe something in the ditch-excavation arena.



The dumbest attempt at pious superiority

By Mike Huckabee

And the award for the dumbest attempt at pious superiority goes to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tweeted, “President Trump spoke tonight about ‘illegal aliens,’ but no human is illegal.”  Yes, that’s why he said “illegal aliens” instead of “illegal humans.”  It’s the “being an alien in the US illegally” part that makes them an “illegal alien.”  Seriously, these people are lawyers?  If someone broke into the SPLC’s offices and set up housekeeping in their CEO’s office, would they call the police and have him arrested as a trespasser, or would they just let him stay there because, after all, he’s only human? 

I don’t know, but I sure would get a kick out of seeing someone try it, just to find out.



Democrat mega-donor in trouble

By Mike Huckabee

When one black male escort turns up dead of a drug overdose at the home of a white Democratic mega-donor in West Hollywood, that might just be a tragic coincidence.  When a second turns up dead, that might actually be enough to get the homeowner seriously investigated, even if he is a Democratic mega-donor in West Hollywood.  One black protester in the crowd outside his house made an interesting point: he said if two white men had been found dead inside a black man's house, the dude would already be in jail.

Ainsworth: "Get woke, go broke" --- fashion magazines leaving newsstands

By Laura Ainsworth

Helen Smith at Instapundit has an essay that gets me as happy as the thought of a high border wall. The reason for my joy: She writes about the demise of women’s magazines. And she has the same reaction to that as I do; namely, “good riddance!”

She refers to these magazines as “paragons of social justice” that have been brainwashing the women of America. “Even magazines like LADIES HOME JOURNAL,” she writes, “are infested with left-leaning programming meant more for indoctrination than entertainment.” So true.



AOC trashes the fact-checkers

By Mike Huckabee

I really don’t mean to pick on “Democratic” Socialist Rep. Alex Ocasio-Cortez, but her plans to remake America into a socialist Utopia apparently not only require destroying the Constitution and US economy but also waging war on fact-checkers.  After being challenged on her fuzzy math on “Sixty Minutes” (hey, it was only a little $21 trillion mistake, which is nothing when you’re “morally right”), she went on an epic tweet-storm against fact-checkers, demanding to know why she’s being fact-checked so much when the Trump Administration has been fact-checked so little.

The Washington Post’s fact-checker, Glenn Kessler, replied, “We have fact-checked you twice. We have fact-checked 7,645 Trump claims.”

Then you’d better brace yourself, Glenn.  She has 7,643 to go. 


A big week for believers in socialism

By Mike Huckabee

This is a big week for believers in Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and socialism.  As if to illustrate why so many productive, tax-paying citizens are fleeing blue states, New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio announced that the city will begin guaranteeing comprehensive health care to every resident, regardless of ability to pay or immigration status.  That includes 300,000 “undocumented New Yorkers,” or to use the more precise, non-PC term, “illegal aliens.”  And in the grand tradition of creators of big government handout programs since time began (and aluminum siding salesmen), DeBlasio promised, “It's going to save us money down the line."

Meanwhile, on the far left coast, California’s new Governor Gavin Newsom pushed the state closer to single-payer health care by announcing that health care benefits would be extended to illegal immigrants under age 26 (Questions: if you’re not allowed to ask for ID to see if they’re even citizens, how do you determine their ages?  So isn't that age limit effectively unenforceable?)

I don’t expect politicians of their ilk to be familiar with economic history and theory explaining the unintended consequences of offering “free” stuff that someone else has to pay for to anybody who shows up.  But judging from their thinking, you might guess that during their formative years, they probably smoked a lot of weed while listening to rock albums.  If so, then they must have heard “Tommy” by the Who.  So I'll cite that:

In this rock opera, a deaf, dumb and blind, but charismatic, guy who literally knows nothing about the real world becomes a celebrity, and a lot of deluded stoners decide he must be their Messiah.  He has a big enough ego to believe it himself, so he orders his followers to put on blinders and ear plugs and build a big commune, then he starts inviting the entire world to move in and live there for free (“We need more room, build an extension, a colorful palace, spare no expense now…”)

Naturally, the place is soon filled to bursting, yet “there’s more at the door, there’s more at the door…” 

The rock opera has a happy ending when even Tommy’s deluded followers finally realize he’s a fraud, declare, “We’re not gonna take it,” and overthrow him.  Let us all pray that the voters of New York City and California take off their blinders and earplugs and have the same realization before the entire population of Central America has moved in and all the producers have fled to Texas where they’re listening to ZZ Top.



By Mike Huckabee

For those who saw Rep. Ocasio-Cortez on “Sixty Minutes” pushing for a return to 70% tax rates on the “tippy-top” earners (apparently, that’s a math term now used in college economics classes), here’s a handy primer on how tax codes really work and why punishing tax rates result in less revenue to the government, which Democrats like JFK used to understand.


Evening Edition - January 8

By Mike Huckabee

A wrap-up of all the news you might have missed yesterday!


Daily Verse (KJV)

"Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; 
for in thee do I trust: 
cause me to know the way wherein I should walk;
for I lift up my soul unto thee."

– Psalm 143:8

    Re: California and NYC extending benefits to illegal immigrants; that's those tax cheating Dems who are to cheap to pay the going wage work hired help. Tax returns of those and all the subsidiaries they have stock in need to be scrutinized by IRS. Also Southern Poverty Law Center is a psuedo law center run by social communists or socialistic attorneys who didn't get hired by ACLU.

    RE; New World Order. Are the Illuminati, Bilderburgers, CFR people, Rothchilds being supplanted by Google, Apple, Amazon and Facebook and Microsoft and Artificial Intelligent Humanoid Robots as well as CHINA. I will bet the Rothchilds will be holding onto as many purse strings as possible.
    Look at the cell phone contract China has with Apple. Back in October 2018 Bloomberg ran a story on how the Chinese manufacturer of certain servers or IT components managed to slip a microchip into those products which enabled them to track certain information from those American companies. I have read that Diane Feinstein and her husband have beaucoup dollares invested into China and probably Nancy Pelosi also. Also I wonder how much of Bill Gates billions are invested overseas.
