Various leftist commentators have been smearing Donald Trump as a supporter of white supremacists so loudly that they apparently didn’t notice that last week, his ICE announced the biggest prosecution of white supremacist in history. Eighty-nine members of violent white supremacist gangs were convicted and received a total of more than 1,070 years in prison. The actions have virtually wiped out such gangs as the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas.
Interestingly, the convictions weren’t for hate crimes, but mostly drug charges. In recent years, they’ve turned their attention from racial hatred to selling meth. I assume from the condition of their brains that they were also using their own product.
I hope you will share this email, to help me spread the truth.
"Transitioning" gone wrong
By Mike Huckabee
Not long ago, I related Katharine Hepburn’s childhood story --- that as a young girl, she decided she wanted to be a boy, to the extent that she cut off all her hair, wore boys’ clothes and told everyone to call her “Jimmy.” She grew out of it on her own. I speculated what might happen to such a girl today, in a time when some parents allow or even encourage the “transitioning” of their young children, who likely are just going through a phase or have other psychological problems or difficulties at home.
Well, here’s a real-life example of how far wrong it can go: a girl who decided to get hormone injections –- and, later, even a mastectomy --and live as a boy but who later found God and realized her body was His temple and that she had been ruining it. She acknowledged that she really was created by God as a woman and now readily lives as one.

HEADLINE NEWS: “Prez Struck With Rock Thrown From Inside Glass House.” From the Administration that took six years to admit the Fort Hood shooting was terrorism (but still not Islamic terrorism) instead of just “workplace violence,” a swipe at Trump for taking 24 hours to label the killing in Charlotte “domestic terrorism.” For the record, I called it that immediately, but then I also immediately realized that an Army major gunning down his comrades while yelling “Allahu Akbar” was terrorism, so I guess I must be a prodigy on this subject.
China is playing ball with us
By Mike Huckabee
China didn’t block sanctions against North Korea at the UN, but they didn’t say whether they’d abide by them. But on Monday, with Kim Jong-Un looking bound and determined to start World War III for no apparent reason, China announced that it will join in the sanctions. This after stating that if North Korea attacks the US and the US retaliates, Kim is on his own. Let’s hope this sends Kim a clear message that if he doesn’t pipe down and back down, the only nation that will be sending any hardware his way will be ours, and it won’t be plumbing fixtures.
Options for Venezuela
By Mike Huckabee
There’s now an entire industry built on wildly overreacting to everything President Trump says or does. One recent example: He was asked what he might do about the violence and late-stage socialist oppression in Venezuela. One of his stated principles is that, unlike the last President, he doesn’t announce military plans in advance so that enemies can prepare for them. So Trump said a “possible military option” exists for dealing with Venezuela. Note that he didn’t say we were sending in the Marines, just that it’s a possible option. That’s about as vague as you can get while sending Venezuela’s government a message not to get too far out of line. But judging from the way it was reported, you’d think he was already massing troops in Aruba.
That left it up to Vice President Pence to make it clear that there are “many options for Venezuela,” and the President is confident that a peaceful resolution will be reached by working with Latin American allies to restore democracy. Next, maybe we could find some options for restoring sanity to the American media. Both Venezuela and the US media prove that having an ill-founded faith in socialism inevitably leads to hysteria and chaos.

Toughest part of police training: the rubber chicken. Also the worst part of political fundraising dinners.
For those who keep trying to draw equivalencies between the US and North Korea, or Trump and Kim Jong Un, here is just a little sample of why that’s embarrassingly stupid. This is what it’s like when you do something the leader doesn’t like in North Korea.
