Today's Commentary --- Dan Crenshaw -- One woman's view: the disaster that is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -- A Georgia boycott -- She killed comedy -- The Baltic Experience 2019 -- Secret weapon -- A new CNN motto -- Evening Edition - Daily Verse


I already liked Texas Representative-elect Dan Crenshaw, but I’m liking him more every day. He was a heroic Navy SEAL who continued his service even after losing an eye in an I.E.D. attack. When he was mocked on “SNL,” he declined to demand an apology, suggested they donate to a military charity instead, then went on the show to forgive the comic who mocked him and make a plea for all Americans to show appreciation to veterans and first responders. And he hasn’t even joined Congress yet, but this past weekend, he made two more TV appearances that both deserve a standing ovation for his bursting of over-inflated anti-Trump media bubbles with the sharp needle of truth.

First, on CNN’s “State of the Union,” two Democrats slammed President Trump for missing the Veterans’ Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery (the left is currently trying to pump up a ridiculous narrative that Trump is the least military-friendly President ever.)

Crenshaw, who has more gravitas on this issue than the other guests, said, “Well, I’ve been to Arlington multiple times to bury my friends, at least two funerals there that I’ve attended and gone back occasionally.” He also noted that he knows Trump personally, and knows how he embraces Gold Star families, and while he would have liked for Trump to go to Arlington, he’s not offended if he misses a ceremony. He explained, “What affects us is, are you giving us a clear mission, are you giving us the equipment we need to do it, are you raising pay for the military? He has done all of these things. That’s what matters to me as a veteran.”

One woman's view: the disaster that is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

By Laura Ainsworth, Staff Writer

New York Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has shown over and over that she has a tenuous grasp on basic facts about economics and government.  That does help explain why she’s a socialist, but be warned:  her cluelessness won’t slow her push for a far-left agenda.  In fact, she’s already moving on that, aggressively.

Her critics call attention to her various slips and misstatements of fact –- welcome to the world of politics  –- and she has responded in part by blaming sexism.  My opinion of Ocasio-Cortez is exactly the same as if she were young, clueless, socialist and male.  (For the hypothetical male, I imagine someone cast in the image printed on those Che Guevara t-shirts that make socialists look so cool.)  The main reason O-C won was that she was young and fresh and idealistic, an image that could have worked just as well for a good-looking latino as it did for a latina.  Oh, how I hate identity politics.



A Georgia Boycott

By Mike Huckabee

Several full-time leftist activists/part-time Hollywood actors, such as Ron Perlman and Alyssa Milano, have declared a boycott of Georgia for electing Republican Brian Kemp as Governor over epic sore loser Stacey Abrams.  They’ve tweeted that any movie or TV shows shooting in Georgia should just forget about hiring them.  I’m sure that will both cripple studio production and make Georgians cry, "Oh no! What have we done?!" 

In the meantime, Georgia Republicans can click this link and add a few more names to their actor boycott list.  Or Hollywood liberals could just get over themselves, stop acting like big divas because their side lost an election, and be thankful to God that they even have jobs in an industry that creates far more waiters than movie stars.



She killed comedy

By Mike Huckabee

Leftism has infected comedy so badly that we've finally developed a "comedian" who's so unfunny that she killed comedy off entirely after nearly 40 years at the White House Correspondents Dinner. She says she "couldn't be more proud."  But could she possibly be a little funnier?

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


Secret weapon

By Mike Huckabee


With Republicans finally able to savor their victories in Florida (and Democrats free to spend the next two years grousing about how “they wuz robbed”), Republicans owe a debt to the unsung heroine of the recount effort.  Even NBC appears to have respect for this brilliant GOP legal eagle who coolly managed the effort to stop the Democrats and their high-priced lawyer’s post-election machinations.  Learn more about her at the link.


A new motto for CNN

By Mike Huckabee


Why CNN’s new motto should be “This is CNN…So Don’t Believe It!”  In the latest example of CNN misleading the public, their headline implied that Republican Rep. Mark Meadows was involved in sexually harassing female aides.  He was actually cited by the Ethics Committee because they didn’t like the way he dealt with a male former staffer to stop him from harassing women. One of the victims spoke up to correct the record: she tweeted that “Meadows never sexually harassed anyone” and “my experience was that Meadows had my back, took me at my word, & respected & protected me.”


In CNN’s defense, at least their headline also mentioned the Democratic Congressman who really was accused of “persistent and unwanted advances towards women.”  The New York Times conveniently left him out of their headline entirely.  Maybe their new motto should be “The Paper of Broken Record.”

    Loved the story about Jessica Furst Johnson. Great to hear we have people like her on board. Hope the Republicans retain her for 2020!
