POLL:  Should President Trump have met with Vladimir Putin?


President Trump’s political opponents and most of those in the media (but I repeat myself) have lost their minds.

Usually, “lost their minds” is just an expression, not to be taken literally, meaning that people need to get a grip.  But this time, after a joint press conference with Vladimir Putin Monday in Helsinki, Finland, in which Trump publicly offered some positive words about Putin –- keep in mind, no one but their translators knows what had been said behind closed doors –- these people seem literally to have gone stark raving mad, to the point of needing antipsychotic medication and perhaps early retirement to an assisted living facility where they can be kept away from sharp objects.  An MRI would show that their brains are no longer firing on all cylinders, if they ever were.

The President is a negotiator with specific goals in mind, not a politician or diplomat; he doesn’t always choose the exact words I might use in a given situation, and this press conference was no exception.  At the same time, I’d really like to ask those who say his conduct bordered on treason:  what is so wrong with someone who has been victimized the way Trump has by his own intelligence community to expressing a lack of trust in that community?  The President surely knows that Putin isn’t to be trusted –- regardless of what he said for Putin’s consumption –- but who says Trump's intelligence agencies are?

The Helsinki Summit

By Mike Huckabee

President Trump is getting brickbats from all sides for his press conference with Vladimir Putin for not strongly confronting Putin over Russia’s meddling in the 2016 US election. Trump said he did confront Putin privately and at length, and Putin confirmed that. But Putin denied attempting to interfere in the US election. Trump also is under fire for saying that Putin made an “incredible offer “to have the people working on the case come and work with (Russia’s) investigators with respect to the 12 people” indicted by Robert Mueller. Trump also said he wants to know why the FBI didn’t get to examine the hacked DNC server these indictments are based on.

Trump is getting excoriated for being soft on Russia and criticizing American intelligence agencies, both by fellow Republicans and by Democrats who spent decades mocking anyone who criticized Russia as a Cold War troglodyte. They also used to hail Obama for his “smart diplomacy” in going around the world criticizing and apologizing for America.




By Mike Huckabee

While we’re on the subject of bowing to foreign leaders, no, President Trump and the First Lady did not violate protocol by shaking Queen Elizabeth’s hand instead of bowing. We settled that issue in the 1700s. Maybe “progressive” schools don’t teach that in history class anymore.

The Democrats and Russia

By Mike Huckabee

A reminder: while Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) are in full meltdown mode over the “assault on our democracy” represented by Russian hackers allegedly getting into the DNC email server, Donna Brazile’s upcoming book “Hacks” reveals that the Dems weren’t always so concerned about security.  In fact, she claims the DNC already knew at the time that its servers were being hacked by Russians, but they kept on using them anyway because taking them down to fortify security when Bernie Sanders was already dealing blows to Hillary in the primaries might have led to her suffering even more humiliating defeats.

This suggests two things that all the rest of us should already know:  (1.) The DNC was under the control of Hillary and working on getting her elected, not keeping the primaries fair and honest; and (2.) the intensity of Democratic OUTRAGE over Russia “assaulting our democracy” depends entirely on whether they think it might have cost them some votes.

Soros funding leftist protests

By Mike Huckabee

Wait, you mean George Soros’ money is financing these hysterical leftist protests against Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court?  I’m so shocked, you could knock me over with a hummingbird feather!

    I hadn't heard how the original question was asked, but the President's response was that he was addressing the Russian interference in our election, not the intelligence agency. However, he then said that he agreed that it was a good idea to get both countries to further investigate the 12 indictments. John Smith had an interview today and it was sited that it was wrong to indite these people as there is no way to take them to court and it is detrimental to our security, as it lets the Russian's figure out what process we are using to get the information and how much they learned, and once you expose them, I'm sure you won't be able to get more information in the future. It sounded like Russia's proposal was already a program in place that was implemented for this very purpose. Our intelligence agency knew for a long time about these people and the timing to bring out these indictments, days before this meeting, certainly must have given our President 2nd thoughts on why our intelligence agency would deliberately put our ways & means in jeopardy by doing this, which was not the procedure that was followed in the past, for these same reasons. This would explain why our president brought up the servers, as it is hard to scold Russia, when it looks like our intelligence agency hasn't made their best effort to find the truth. If the Democrats used password for their password, then maybe they wanted Russia to interfere, so they had a better case to impeach our President. This is the program they follow. (Accuse the other of what they are doing.)

    I'd say Mr. President the more people that say you don't know what you doing and the oxyMORON "Intelligence agency" publicly finds fault, then I'd say the more you KNOW exactly what you are doing.....stud poker is a Very interesting game.
