13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

1 Corinthians 13:13 KJV


By Mike Huckabee

Columnist and military veteran Kurt Schlichter, in his own inimitable way, delivers a message to all the incompetent top military brass who prioritized protecting their careers over protecting our troops and who stood by and said and did nothing as our "Commander-in-Chief" instituted the most transparently dangerous and idiotic pullout plan in history:


By the way, that message should not be limited to only the top military brass. There's a long list of people it should be cc'ed to.

Afghanistan Updates

For the latest news updates on Afghanistan, check out this link from Fox News:

He said it, not me

By Mike Huckabee

If I compared President Biden’s Afghanistan debacle to the Bay of Pigs, called the suicide bombing that killed 13 US service members the “worst day in his Administration,” and said that because of the way the withdrawal was handled, the situation is now more dangerous and difficult and we’ll have to send more troops back in for counterterrorism operations, I would be blasted by some on the left as a biased Republican “pouncing” on Biden.

Fortunately, I don’t have to say any of those things because Barack Obama’s former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said them for me.

Defending the Indefensible

By Mike Huckabee

President Biden’s supporters in the media are once again proving that they will go to any lengths to defend the indefensible. In the latest example, they’re circulating the photo of him with his head down at the press conference and saying Trump didn’t care about our fallen soldiers, but this shows how strong Biden is that he can express his grief for them publicly.

Three things wrong with that:

1. He wasn’t grieving. His head was down in befuddled consternation because he couldn’t answer Fox News reporter Peter Ducey’s questions about his botched Afghan pullout operation.

2. Trump had already issued a statement mourning those soldiers hours before the White House commented.

3. If Biden had followed Trump’s plan, those 13 troops and 90-plus Afghans likely wouldn’t have died. Indeed, under Trump, we lost only one soldier in Afghanistan in the previous 18 months. Under Biden, we’ve now lost 13 in one day. Even if he had been grieving in that photo, it doesn’t make someone a great President to show sorrow for the loss of soldiers who died needlessly because of his own bad decisions.

Pelosi wants more 2020 information from Trump, conservatives

By Mike Huckabee

Despite a report that the FBI has found no evidence of any planned insurrection among the protesters who invaded the Capitol on January 6th, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is determined to keep beating this dead horse until it’s hamburger. She’s now launched an outrageous demand for all documents and communications related to the 2020 election, over a 10-month period prior to January 20th, between the Trump White House and dozens of prominent conservatives, from Alex Jones to Trump campaign donors to social media influencers such as “Walk Away” founder Brandon Straka and even reporters.

Congressional Republicans are calling it “McCarthesque” (an insult to Sen. Joe McCarthy, who only dreamed of abusing power like Nancy Pelosi), “nuts,” and an attempt to spy on political opponents that’s worse than Watergate.

Incidentally, I notice my name isn’t on this list. I guess she knows that I have no secrets. Everything I’ve ever had to say about this incident I put right in this newsletter. If she wants to spy on my communications, I suggest she start reading it daily. She might actually find it educational.

Speaking of Accountability

By Mike Huckabee

A federal judge refused to dismiss a lawsuit by Baltimore business owners against the city for failing to stop rioters from burning and looting their businesses.

The city argued that those weren’t rioters, they were just some criminals opportunistically taking advantage of the protests and unrest (or as I’d call that, “a distinction without a difference.”) Also that their hold-back strategy ultimately led to shorter and less violent unrest than in other cities.

But the judge decided that a reasonable juror might not see it that way, particularly since the mayor openly boasted that the city “gave those who wished to destroy space to do that.” So the lawsuit continues.

    Hi Mike,

    I was thinking that the Afghanistan debacle is about the same at the Iraq debacle that Obama
    did under his presidency. Their almost same scenario. They both took the Troops out and left all the people and equipment and everyone went fleeing......Did Biden use Obamas withdrawal plan and Obama didnt get impreached or has to resign over it, so Biden thought he'd try it to and their'd be no

    You were terrific Governor and a fine Christian and Patriot. Don't worry-- you'll end up on that roll call of honor.

    I laughingly appreciate your commentary on our sweet Mrs. Pelosi. I hope she does take to reading your commentary, she might learn something. The again, perhaps not. In her 80+ years she has avoided any source of knowledge including the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Considering the date of those two documents, perhaps she was on hand to see them written?

    Mike, I know from your history that you are a born-again Christian. From all indications, you are able to maintain the joy of your Christianity, while distributing troubling news items and commentary. I have a Christian friend, who sends out information similar to yours to a lot of friends, but he is letting that activity destroy his joy. He says the hatred he has for liberal politicians prevents him from attending church and enjoying fellowship with other believers. I'm wondering if you could provide some guidance as to how you handle the news about those, who want to reshape America, and yet maintain the joy of your Christian experience.
    Thanks, Joseph (Joe) Williams

    Your opening statements on Saturday's program on TBN was great. Can you please post those opening monologues on this forum on Sunday's. I have liberal 'friends' who need to read it.

    Yes, they weren't rioters, but criminals -- just going along with the wrong -- haven no morals -- just wanting something for nothing.

    When Pelosi was surrounded by tagged officials of the gov, what was going on? Pelosi is an evil, unbelieving liar and crook with taxpayers money. Please let me know this country has a way back from the evil existing in our country. Let me believe President Trump will again grace the presidential residence and we will have the chance by the grace of the glory of our Heavenly Father to bring in the harvest of lost souls. According to Jeremiah 17:9-10. Last month read Isiah and feeding on Jeremiah and we are in a nation that has defied God, HIS Ways, and obedience to HIS will. Your opinion would be appreciated. My faith is in God.
