On Wednesday, former Trump attorney and soon-to-be jailbird Michael Cohen testified behind closed doors before the Senate Intelligence Committee, where it was said that nothing would be off limits and that Cohen should expect to get questions “from anywhere about anything.” Wednesday, he’s testifying in a public hearing before the House Oversight Committee (chairman: Democrat Elijah Cummings), where, according to the Wall Street Journal, he plans to say that the President engaged in criminal conduct while in office, so Democrats have been busy popping the popcorn for that. Thursday, he’ll testify behind closed doors again before the House Intelligence Committee (chairman: Democrat Adam Schiff).
Remember, one of the reasons he’s heading off to prison for a three-year sentence is that he was found guilty of lying to Congress. Cohen’s mouth is known for being “home of the whopper.”

A reply to "JohnnylE" regarding the Trump/Russia investigation

By Mike Huckabee

From JohnnyE:

The question begging to be asked is why Trump is making such great effort to impede the investigation about Russia messing with our election.

He's been firing investigators, FBI officials, prosecutors; subverting the House Intelligence Committee when Republicans were in charge; he's been threatening witnesses and judges on Twitter; and he and his cohorts have been lying about their extensive contacts with Russian officials and intelligence agents before and after the election. Numerous people close to Trump have been indicted or admitted guilt to crimes.

But this isn't just a white collar crime where strict rules of admissible evidence are needed. This is also a counterespionage investigation where numerous indications point to Russian meddling. The FBI and all the other intelligence agencies would be negligent if they didn't follow every lead no matter what Donald and FOX News pundits thought.



“Hate Crime Hoaxes Hurt Real Victims"

By Mike Huckabee 

To listen to the left, conservatives all over America are constantly launching violent hate crimes. The same media outlets that trumpet those alleged crimes seem to give far less attention when so many of them turn out to be hoaxes perpetrated by the alleged victims. David Catron at the American Spectator dug into the statistical gymnastics required to construct the leftist narrative of an epidemic of conservative hate crimes...READ MORE HERE>>>


Quick Note on Michael Cohen

By Mike Huckabee

Quick note on Michael Cohen: this circus will be going on for three days, and why in the world Congress should spend its time hearing testimony from someone who’s headed to prison for lying to Congress is beyond me (maybe he'll pinky-swear on the Bible that this time, he's really telling the truth -- although maybe he should swear on Clifford Irving's hoax biography of billionaire Howard Hughes instead.) I’ll wait to comment until after it happens. In the meantime, he’s already released his opening statement. I won’t go into detail yet, since I’m sure the questioners will pick it apart, but at first glance, much of it sounds like the same anti-Trump talking points (“He’s a racist! He’s a con man!”) that have been clogging the Internet for two years and that sound as if they came from CNN by way of the DNC’s unsecured email account.

For instance, claims of him saying all these racist things in private or never really expecting or wanting to win the Presidency: I spent many hours with him on the campaign trail. I never heard him say anything racist (I would have quit immediately if I had). And the very fact that he did campaign so hard, holding rallies day and night until much-younger aides were left exhausted in his wake, gives the lie to the claim that he wasn’t trying to win. I have a feeling that there is a great deal in Mr. Cohen’s testimony that will be at sharp odds with the facts. Personally, I think Congress could spend its time more productively by holding hearings on how to eliminate cow flatulence, but I suppose they will get to that in due time.

Jorge Ramos 

By Mike Huckabee

Univision news anchor Jorge Ramos was detained for several hours in Venezuela after socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro became angered that he showed viewers video of Venezuelans searching for food in the garbage while Maduro was blocking humanitarian aid from entering the country for his starving people.  Fortunately, Ramos was eventually released, but he and his crew were scheduled to be deported today. 

After his release, the stunned Ramos had this to say:  “I never thought they were going to do something stupid like this, I never thought they were going to take the whole interview and rob us…What I told Nicolás Maduro is that millions of Venezuelans and many governments of the world did not consider him a legitimate president but a dictator. That's what I told Nicolás Maduro. He obviously did not like it."

Hold on…So socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro treated the press the way a socialist dictator would..and this came as a shock and a surprise to Univision reporter Jorge Ramos?  Seriously? I think this proves he doesn’t belong on Univision. 

He belongs on CNN or MSNBC.

Or maybe the Bronx can elect him to Congress.


16 Year Old schools AOC

By Mike Huckabee

I don’t want to be one of those conservatives who reacts to every ridiculous thing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says.  I just wish she’d help me by not saying so many of them. 

So in the name of kindness, in response to her arrogant reply to critics of her ludicrous “Green New Deal” that she’s in Congress so “I’m the boss” and we’re just baying from the cheap seats (fact check: she’s only one of 435 people in the House, which is – brace yourself, AOC – just one-half of one of the three branches of government), I’ll let a 16-year-old who obviously paid more attention in civics class than she did handle the job of telling her who really works for whom.


Republicans win in Democrat districts, MSM goes silent

By Mike Huckabee

There was a story earlier this week about how the battleground states for the 2020 election may be in the Midwest.  The political analysts pointed out that Trump won by carrying blue collar states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin that Democrats thought they had in the bag.  But Democrat victories there in the midterms might indicate that the pendulum has swung back to the left and the relentless anti-Trump media attacks have taken their toll.

But before Democrats start counting their Electoral votes before they hatch, they might want to look at deepest-blue Connecticut.  Tuesday, there were five special elections to fill House seats there, and two of them flipped to the GOP.  One district that went Republican by 10 points had been Democrat for nearly a quarter century and voted for Hillary by 26 points in 2016.  And what those districts had in common is that they are predominantly blue collar.    

Likewise, a few weeks ago in a Minnesota special election, a state Senate seat that had been controlled by one Democratic family for three generations went Republican by 16 points.

It’s not smart to try to predict turnout in Presidential election years based on votes in mid-term and special elections.  But it does suggest that at least in blue collar areas, workers who backed Trump because he promised to bring back jobs and raise wages think he’s keeping that promise, and they aren’t tired enough of winning yet to go back to the low growth and anemic job creation produced by Obama’s liberal policies. 

These special elections should serve as a warning to Democrats: if they nominate a far-left, government-bloating, tax-hiking, economy-wrecking socialism fan (which so far covers their entire crowd of contenders), then all the anti-Trump press in the world might not be enough to make blue collar workers decide they’d rather be unemployed than vote for Trump again.


Green New Deal Cost Update

By Mike Huckabee

The American Action Forum (a think tank led by Republican Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who used to lead the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office) has a new, more complete estimate of the cost of implementing the Democrats’ “Green New Deal.”  The good news: the initial estimate of more than $30 trillion over ten years was wrong.  The bad news: the actual cost would range between $51 and $93 trillion.

Backers of the plan responded that not implementing it will cost more.  How is that even possible?  The entire US gross domestic product is only around $20 trillion a year.  That’s everything produced in the USA. You could take an Uber to the sun and back 250 billion times for $93 trillion, which is a more plausible plan than the Green New Deal. 

Sponsoring Sen. Ed Markey claims the AAF estimate is based on “lazy assumptions.”  Lazier than thinking you can get cows to stop passing gas or rebuild every structure in America or replace all planes with trains in 10 years?  Someone needs to spend more time in a “think tank,” and it’s not the people from AAF.

Speaking of lazy assumptions, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest pearl of wisdom is that, with the environmental apocalypse just 12 years away (as she’s convinced a lot of terrified children is true; see Dianne Feinstein’s frustrating experience), people should consider not having children.

In response, Ed Driscoll at Instapundit makes the following observation:

“AOC was born in 1989, the same year that AP reported that ‘A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000,’ and the New York Times published a column by Al Gore headlined, ‘An Ecological Kristallnacht. Listen.’ Presumably, she’s glad that her parents ignored such apocalyptic scaremongering.”

Maybe we could strike a compromise: anyone who thinks it’s a good idea to make major life decisions based on the wisdom of “Democratic” socialists is free to consider not reproducing.  The rest of us will decline to commit generational suicide based on the chances that UN computer climate models are correct and go on enjoying our children and grandchildren, who will live in a world without the added government oppression and tens of trillions of dollars in debt that will not exist if socialists stop reproducing.

    If AOC wants to replace planes and cars with trains then what does she propose to make the trains run with? If she says electricity where is that going to be generated and how? That is going to take a lot of electric power to run that many trains. I guess we could go back to horse and buggy days but then we would have to figure out how to keep the horses from farting. The good side is that it would create a lot of jobs to go behind cleaning up after the horses, but at least that waste is bio-degradable. (wonder if AOC was in a buggy if she would know what end of the horse she was looking at.)
