Before you celebrate Father’s Day this weekend, give dad the gift of an hour in his recliner, surrounded by his loved ones, all enjoying a brand new episode of “Huckabee” on TBN!  Tonight, I’ll talk about the big news out of Washington with Sen. Marsha Blackburn and introduce you to a Huck’s Hero who’s good to the last drop.  We’ll observe the anniversary of the horrific Charleston church shooting with one of the victims’ relatives whose inspiring response helped unite the nation.  You’ll meet a man who was imprisoned as one of the most dangerous gang leaders in California until a miracle turned his life around completely.  The actress who set young men’s hearts a-flutter in “Summer of ’42,” the beautiful Jennifer O’Neill, will pay a visit.  I’ll also have some crazy news “In Case You Missed It” and some surprises.  And we’ll top if all off with country music star Wade Hayes.  

It’s all coming your way tonight on”Huckabee” at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, only on TBN. To find your local TBN channel and stream previous episodes online, visit


Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced this week that two agencies of the USDA would be moved to Kansas from Washington, DC.  If you guessed that went over like a kale salad at my house, you’re right.  Agency employees turned their backs on Perdue in silent protest.  They’re claiming nefarious motives, such as that the move is to impair climate research and that it’s “cold-hearted” to make those poor bureaucrats move out of their natural habitat. 

As always, Democrats in Congress are threatening to scamper to a federal judge to have the move declared illegal.  It’s amazing how powerless the President became the moment Trump won.  Before that, Obama could make laws and treaties all by himself via executive order, when he wasn't lowering the tides by waving his hands.  Now, Trump allegedly doesn't even have the power to undo an Obama order or, apparently, to relocate an office.

Perdue said the decision wasn’t made lightly and that it will save taxpayers $300 million over 15 years in leases and other costs. But that didn’t mollify the furious federal employees who can’t believe anyone could be so cruel as to make USDA bureaucrats live way out where a bunch of farmers are. 

Personally, I like this idea.  I say we move all the vital functions of government out of Washington and closer to the people they’re supposed to be serving. It would save money, and make government more responsive and efficient.  Plus, once DC was emptied of everything but politicians and bureaucrats, we could finally save America by building a big, beautiful wall…around Washington.     



This week’s escalating assaults on conservatives and pro-life groups by big tech have escalated into all-out war on free speech on the Internet. Read this, then remember to sign up for the pro-free speech Twitter alternative, where you will now find me at @MikeHuckabee.



I said I had planned to wait to report on the libel lawsuit against Oberlin College by a bakery that was smeared as racist by radical leftist students with the alleged complicity of the school’s administration.  I was waiting until the “other shoe dropped,” i.e., to see if the jury added punitive damages to the $11.2 million in compensatory damages they ordered Oberlin to pay.  Well, it dropped, and it wasn’t a shoe, it was a combat boot.  The jury awarded the maximum $33 million in punitive damages for a total of over $44 million. 

Maybe this will finally send shock waves to liberal universities to stop coddling and enabling violent and anti-social behavior by students who are supposed to be in college to learn how to be civilized, educated adults, not to throw emotional tantrums at the expense of everyone else’s rights.  And you might be surprised to learn who celebrated this long-overdue blowback against schools that indulge these “social justice warrior” tactics.




Sorry to see that the “ladies and gentlemen” of the press (that might require more than one set of quotation marks) are being just as partisan, petty and hateful toward my daughter Sarah when she’s leaving the White House as they were when she had to deal with their unprofessionalism and partisanship daily.  This story recounts some of their impotent raging, which I predict won't prove any more of an obstacle to her future than a pebble would to a Cadillac.  But it also includes something you might want to bookmark to rewatch on nights when you want to go to bed with a warm feeling: her five greatest smackdowns of arrogant, hostile reporters (i.e., Democratic PR agents with press passes.)





The DNC announced the 20 (count ‘em: 20!) Presidential candidates who made the cut to appear in the first debate.  To find out which ones made it (and which ones suffered the humiliation of not even getting as far as Eric Swalwell and Marrianne Williamson), click the link.


This story also includes a convincing argument for why these debates are going to be awful.  And it doesn’t even include the phrase, “moderated by Rachel Maddow.”




Least Surprising News Ever: In the first four months of 2019, while the Republicans have been stockpiling cash for the 2020 elections, the Democratic National Committee spent more money than it took in and added $3 million to its debt. This is about as shocking as the news that “Water is wet.”  In fact, you could replace both parties' platforms with this news nugget, and you'd get a pretty good idea of what to expect when you voted.

    While I'm using this site on June 18th, I hope you can share with the Trumps that Melania was radiant at the fabulous rally tonight. She smiled and smiled. It makes such a difference. Thank you, Melania. We love you! And Sarah? Oh my goodness. She was fabulous. She is just the best, a true warrior, like her dad. But you and she always speak with such dignity. What a blessing you all are to the rest of us. Thank you again.

    Please tell the Republicans for me that they need to print everywhere all the promises that Trump has kept. The dems are spreading untrue reports and the media is doing the same. I do not know how they can flood the country with a complete report about Trumps accomplishments but I feel that God led me to think this.

    I am happy for Sarah, but also sad. I always watched when she was on and enjoyed watching her not take garbage from the press, especial Jim Acosta. She deserved far better than what they gave her. My wish is many blessings and the very best for her. I am going to miss her!

  • Jean Groen

    Tell Sarah "Thanks" for a great job. We'll miss her and the president will have a tough time finding someoine to replace her as good as she was!

    On your program tonight (6/15/19) you talked about the Electoral College and showed maps of the last election and a couple of others. Is what you said gong to be able to be found somewhere else? And, even more importantly, I'd sure like to see the maps on the internet so I could print them out.

    Your whole discussion of the Electoral College was great!!!!!!

    Mike I had commented 6/14 Sarah best wishes I also was a bit hostile toward the Press I made reference to RATS and Scum and it didn't take long for them to surry to a camera and and trash talk about Sarah the press are like the streets of SF dirty disease filled and so desperate, the press is failing just like the moral fiber of the Lefts values like CNN nobody cares what it has to say the people in the airport do not watch CNN on its TVs what a out of touch organization the Left has become no one really needs to listen to them they have nothing to of value. Rats and SCUM rate better than the DUDS on theLeft!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I always enjoy your newsletter but tonight was especially good. It’s worth noting that Sarah is a chip off the old block. She did a yeoman’s job as press secretary and took no guff from the crew of Neanderthal press. She handled it with grace and dignity and plenty of grit. She’d make a fabulous Gov. of Arkansas.

    Wonder how long before the dnc will be DEMANDING that tax payers have to pay into their organization--not only to get them out of debt, but to keep them above water. Hmm...where are all the mega donors these days?

    I think it's a great idea to move agencies to the areas they represent--could probably even get a few people in those industries on the boards, or at least make it easier for them to appear before the agency to provide input.

    Sarah has been a delight, the way she handles herself and the fake press. We will miss her and wish her well and success with whatever she chooses to do. I don,t know if anyone can do as good a job. God bless you and your family Ms Sarah.

    We all are so proud of Sarah and loved her courageous true grit in representing POTUS! She'll be missed by those of us who always knew she was a quick thinker, intelligent, hard working and confident woman who completely knew how to handle today's propaganda media! Best wisges to her always!!

    it would be great to have a few in the USDA...that have actually been to the country.

    I admire Sarah for her 3 years of service as Press Secretary....and that has to be a thankless job! I loved how she handled the media giving them doses of their own medicine and clever comebacks. Sarah deserves great health and happiness and a lot more time with her family. She will be excellent at whatever she does in life. She is an inspiration to all women everywhere! May God Bless Sarah always!

    Please let Sarah know: The "source" is unfortunately the only thing to think of, if even the "source" is thought of at all! Sarah inspired me. Tell her I said thanks.

    I now know what I must do as soon as possible....

    Many strange two legged chattering creatures wander about aimlessly in Donkeyland here in the second decade of the 21st Century. We did have a strong major Political Party which, sadly, may have committed suicide.

    Governor Huckabee,

    I just wanted to say how much I admire and respect your daughter, Sarah. She was an amazing spokeswoman for the administration and what she had to put up with was beyond the pale. I am so sorry to see her leave but respect her so much for putting up with all the vitriol from all sides. May the Lord protect her in the days ahead and guide her paths. Personally, I hope to be voting for her for President perhaps in 2024 or 2028. God Bless both of you and keep keeping us informed. It means a lot.

    Move the White House staff to Kansas City and leave everyone else in DC.

    Will most certainly miss Sarah. No one has ever come close to doing the job that she did and the harassment that she took daily and yet continued each and every day. So very sad to see her leave. I sure hope we hear more from her in the future. God bless her and prayers to her and her beautiful family.

    Darn it!!! I tried to keep my statement true that last time would probably be the last comment I would make. That was because I "thought" that the politicians could not get any worse or dumber. I forgot about "judges." Does anyone have any idea what that means... ALL ILLEGALS MUST STAY IN AMERICA BECAUSE THEY CAN CLAIM THEY ARE TOO INCOMPETENT TO UNDERSTAND OUR LAWS!!!!!! my final comments on this is it must take AN INCOMPETENT JUDGE TO RECOGNIZE INCOMPETENCY... are ALL the WE the PEOPLE TOO INCOMPETENT, INCONTINENCE, IN-COGNIZANT, and COMPLACENT TO ALLOW THIS TO BE DONE??? IF SO, WE HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME EXCEPT OURSELVES!!!!!!!!
