Good morning America!
The owners of the Trumped Store, a shop in Show Low, Arizona, that sells Trump-themed merchandise, arrived one recent morning to find their store had been spray-painted with graffiti such as “Nazi scum” and “Resist the 1%” by obviously anti-Trump vandals. They said they weren’t even surprised. After all, the store started as an effort to provide free Trump campaign materials to replace those that had been stolen or vandalized. More surprising was that a Good Samaritan neighbor who’d seen the vandalism was already waiting with paint thinner to help them clean it off. Since then, other neighboring businesses have offered to help with repairs, and people have traveled from all over Arizona to help guard their store.
And now, here’s the really astounding part of this story: I’ll bet the vandals seriously believe they’re the heroes of it.
Steve Scalise update
By Mike Huckabee
We could all use some good news, and here's some: House Speaker Paul Ryan says that Rep. Steve Scalise is making progress on recovering from his near-fatal shooting and is determined to make a full recovery and resume his Congressional duties. Scalise still has to learn to walk again, but he recently joined a House GOP conference call to discuss Trump’s agenda for the next session. Ryan said, “He’s got a long road ahead of him, but he’s going to be OK.”
A reminder: Scalise was shot in June when a rage-filled Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire on Republican Congress members who were practicing for a charity baseball game. This was some of the violence from “many sides” that the left and their media supporters would very much like you to please forget about.
The Left's war against Art
By Mike Huckabee
Just when you might have thought Antifa radicals were the only leftists destroying art they don’t agree with, along comes the Freedom From Religion Foundation to remind us that they are also intolerant censors. The group threatened to sue over a complaint from precisely one atheist parent and forced a New Mexico school to paint over a mural because it included the quote, "Hope anchors the soul — Hebrews 6:19." That’s now apparently an endorsement of the Bible on public school grounds.
How long before students won’t be allowed to look at any religiously-inspired art in art history class? That’s going to be a much easier class, once the teachers have to skip directly from cave paintings to Picasso.
I can only imagine...

As Hollywood movies have devolved into loud, big-screen video games and comic books, faith-based films that were once marketed onto to churchgoers have slowly started attracting big name talent and taking over the market of audiences hungry for films about something deeper than “stuff blowing up real good.” The next faith-based potential breakout hit is the upcoming film, “I Can Only Imagine.” It tells the true story behind the megahit song of that name by the Christian rock band MercyMe, whose lead singer wrote it after losing his father to cancer. The film stars such top name talents as Cloris Leachman, Trace Adkins and Dennis Quaid. Check out the teaser trailer at the link. I promise, it includes no cities being destroyed in CGI.
Wait, was it Shakespear?!?
By Mike Huckabee
I love the brilliant observation by the late Southern comedian Brother Dave Gardner that “some people are ‘educated’ way beyond their intelligence.” That’s proven daily by Ivy League alumni all over the news. And now, it’s been carved into stone at USC. A new $700 million addition dedicated to Shakespeare includes a statue of Queen Hecuba of Troy, whose story haunted the tragic hero Hamlet. How highbrow! Except that on Hecuba’s plaque, “Shakespeare” is misspelled “Shakespear.” USC officials tried to brush off the embarrassing error by joking, “To ‘e’ or not to ‘e,’ that is the question.”
Personally, I don’t think they should give it a second thought. That statue probably won’t even stand for another week anyway before some Antifa undergrad who thinks Queen Hecuba was Robert E. Lee’s wife smashes it.
Why you won’t be seeing any Dallas Cowboys players disrespecting the American flag.
