In a post yesterday, I made reference to the various news outlets that went on a blood-in-the-water feeding frenzy over the NBC scoop that President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen had been wiretapped…only to have to reel in their hysteria a couple of hours later when NBC retracted the story (turns out Cohen's call records were monitored but his conversations were not recorded.) Among the ones I chided in passing for their “breathless” reaction to this non-scoop was CNN. Apparently, this greatly upset them (Really? Being called “breathless” is the worst thing they’ve heard about CNN lately?) because I got a lot of grief over that. Critics attacked me, saying that CNN hadn’t run with that story and accusing me of making up “fake news” about fake news.

Admittedly, like most people, I see CNN these days only when stuck in airports (as if long layovers aren’t aggravating enough.) But I did see a clip that certainly made it appear that CNN discussed the story and aired some pretty breathless reactions. I direct your attention to the third clip in this montage from Laura Ingraham’s Thursday show, starting at the 5:58 mark:

I think that proves that my comment about CNN was made in good faith...

Climate change skeptics most likely to engage in eco-friendly actions

By Mike Huckabee

I recently let Earth Day pass without notice, not because I don’t like the Earth (it’s one of my favorite tourist destinations), but because I’m usually too busy doing things like going out into the woods to hunt and fish to get in my SUV and drive to a big Earth Day event at some electric-powered convention center along with thousands of other people to celebrate the environment by leaving behind tons of litter. If you think I’m suggesting that conservatives who are skeptical of outspoken environmentalists are more Earth-friendly than outspoken environmentalists, well…yes. Yes, I am. And now, the science is settled!

A year-long study by University of Michigan psychologist Michael Hall found that people who are skeptical of climate change claims and opposed to government policy to affect the climate are actually the most likely to engage in eco-friendly individual actions, such as recycling, buying "green" products, and using public transportation and reusable shopping bags. On the other hand, those who believe most strongly in manmade climate change and government action to combat it are the least likely to do anything personally to help the environment.

John Kerry and the Logan Act

By Mike Huckabee

Say, remember when Democrats were trying to accuse President Trump and his associates of violating the Logan Act by talking to or even publicly addressing Russia? That’s a very old law that bars private citizens from acting on behalf of the United States during a dispute with another country (in other words, trying to interfere with official government foreign policy by conducting it on your own). That law has resulted in only one charge and never been successfully prosecuted, but that didn’t deter Trump’s critics from claiming it was going to send him to prison.

Well, if so, then why aren’t they calling for John Kerry to get measured for a Saville Row tailored orange prison jump suit? Because it seems to me that openly trying to undermine official government foreign policy on the Iran nuclear deal by acting as a shadow Secretary of State would definitely fall under the Logan Act.



NY Times gets a tax cut

By Mike Huckabee

After railing for months against the GOP tax cuts and claiming that only a small sliver of the tax savings would go to employees and most would be used by the rich corporate fat cat owners for stock dividends and buybacks, the New York Times announced that its own taxes dropped by about half, a savings of over $5 million. So are they going to give it back to the IRS as a “voluntary contribution?” No, of course not. Guess what they are going to do with it. Go on, guess. Here’s a hint: a small sliver of it is going to one place and most is going to another.

President Trump addresses the NRA

By Mike Huckabee

President Trump announced Friday during his speech to the NRA convention in Dallas that a date and place are now set for the summit to denuclearize North Korea, and they’ll be revealed soon. At the link, a round-up of the latest developments on the Korean situation. I’ll also add this quote, which I’m sure the NRA members especially appreciated:

"With respect to North Korea, remember how strong it was when they were saying, ‘This is going to be nuclear war. We're going to have nuclear.' No. You know what gets you nuclear war? Weakness gets you nuclear war. Being weak gets you nuclear war…"


Speaking of Trump’s appearance before the NRA convention, he said some things after the Florida school shooting that caused friction with Second Amendment defenders such as the NRA, but his comments in Dallas may have helped smooth that over. Check out the video and the quotes at the link.
