"Huckabee" preview

Happy Fourth of July week!  I know many of you, like my staffers, will be taking off on vacation this week, but make sure wherever you are that you’re by the TV or have the DVR set tonight for the first of two very special episodes of “Huckabee” on TBN, filmed live in Branson, Missouri!  I’ll visit with former Attorney General and Senator and Governor of Missouri, John Ashcroft; and show you some of the great attractions of the Ozark entertainment capital, such as Silver Dollar City. But most of all, the show is jam-packed with music from many of the top stars of Branson, including the Haygood Family, the Presley Gospel Quartet, and Tony Orlando.  All that and a whole lot more surprises are coming tonight, to help kick off your holiday week! It all starts on TBN at 8 EST, 7 CST, with repeats at 10 EST and Sunday at the same times.  You can also find clips and complete past shows, plus a channel finder to locate TBN wherever you are, at


Harris Faulkner more than holds her own

One of those “pointing the finger at someone else, not realizing three are pointed back at you” moments: Harris Faulkner was race-baited on “The View” for being the only black female host on Fox News.  She pointed out that that’s one more than you’ll find on either CNN or MSNBC.



Meet two of the sweet, innocent undocumented immigrant children whom we are supposed to welcome with open arms and no questions asked, or else we’re Nazis.



Michigan professor turns the tables

Turning the tables using the left’s own furniture: A Michigan economics professor is demanding a Title IX investigation of a Northeastern University feminist sociology professor who wrote an op-ed called “Why Can’t We Hate Men?” It makes the predictable argument that all the problems of the world are the fault of men, who should be disenfranchised and shunned and hated.  The complaint points out that the university’s own “Policy on Equal Opportunity” prohibits “discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, religious creed, genetic information, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, ancestry, veteran or disability status.”  So why should “a confirmed sexist and bigot” and a “self-declared hate monger” be allowed to promote discrimination against men, when a male student could no more expect fair treatment from her than a black student could from a professor who’s in the KKK?  


Excellent question, and one that I bet the ultra-“woke” “progressives” at NU never imagined they’d have to answer when they were writing the anti-discrimination standards that they thought would apply only to other people’s prejudices.  I’ll bet the left isn’t going to like “equality” so much once they realize it means everyone has to live up to the same standards of civil conduct and basic human decency.

 Toys R Us closes

Yesterday marked a sad milestone, as the bankrupt Toys R Us chain officially closed nationwide.  They’ve been running clearance sales for months.  But at least there was one bright spot in the chain’s passing: an anonymous philanthropist in North Carolina took advantage of the final sale to buy $1 million worth of toys (and that’s a lot of toys at final clearance sale prices) which will be distributed to needy children. That person just earned an honored place in Huck’s Heroes R Us.



 Judge Ellis

The judge in former Trump campaign official Paul Manafort’s case rejected Manafort’s claim that the growing mountain of charges against him are outside the scope of Robert Mueller’s investigation. But only because there apparently is no “scope” to the investigation, nor any limits on how much time or money Mueller is allowed to expend, nor on his ethical conduct.


This is a must-read, for Judge T.S. Ellis III’s clear explanation of how far afield from seeking justice our special counsel system has strayed, with prosecutors under pressure to justify their budgets by filing charges even if they find no relevant crimes. Ellis bluntly declared that “even a blind person” can see that Mueller’s true target is President Trump, and that Mueller is throwing everything-plus-the-kitchen-sink at Manafort to try to bully and bankrupt him into implicating Trump in some way.


Judge Ellis also ruled that a special counsel does not have to follow his own justice regulations because those regulations were written to be “unenforceable.” That’s right: because of the way the special counsel law is written and the “limits” (or lack of same) imposed on Mueller by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, this kind of prosecutorial persecution is technically legal, even though it’s starting to resemble “Les Miserables” without the musical score.


Judge Ellis said, “Although these kinds of high-pressure prosecutorial tactics are neither uncommon nor illegal, they are distasteful.” It’s long past time that Congress acted to make them uncommon and illegal.

 Mike Lee

The loud bangs and giant fireballs you will see next week might not be Fourth of July fireworks. They might be liberals’ heads exploding upon hearing about the person that many conservatives are urging President Trump to nominate to replace Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.


And yes, he is highly qualified in terms of legal experience. That’s not the reason.



Don't Blame Trump

Writers at liberal news media outlets and the people who create memes at sites such as Democratic Underground that leftists on social media use instead of thinking were quick to exploit the tragic shooting at the Capitol Gazette offices in Annapolis. They citied President Trump’s criticism of the media at a rally this week for inciting the attack, with one meme declaring, “Trump Has Blood On His Hands!”


We now know that the shooter was a known hothead with a longstanding vendetta against the paper stemming from an article it ran about him seven years ago, long before Trump ever even announced that he was running. So the people who are trying to blame the shooting on Trump criticizing the media for promoting fake news have just validated his criticism by promoting fake news. At least the editor in the linked story admitted that he made an error by reacting personally and emotionally, and he deleted his tweet and apologized. But you know those Facebook memes are going to live on forever.


Whenever this happens (too often), I try to figure out whether it was simply due to emotion and bias leading people to rush to judgment, or to a willingness to cynically exploit every tragedy for political gain. Or in many cases, it might just be that some people have gotten so in the habit of blaming Trump for every bad thing that happens in the world that they just can’t stop themselves.

Preventable tragedy


It's also starting to appear that this shooting was another preventable tragedy that authorities failed to prevent. A woman who claims she was stalked and harassed by the shooter says that she warned a former police official years ago that he was a “nut job” and he “will be your next mass shooter.”  It took years of ignoring the warning signs, but now, he finally is.



Here’s how much the anti-Trump crowd has overplayed the “OUTRAGE!!!” card: I saw a story headlined “Comcast Dealing With Major Outage Nationwide,” and at first thought it said “Major Outrage Nationwide,” so I ignored it.

    Just read an article about a federal law restricting ownership of any gun to a person owning any form of pot. How will this affect States with new laws covering the ownership and use of the drug?

    Two very obvious facts concerning America & Mexico.
    1. The USA has failed to realize that Mexico is at war with us....they're invading and planning action against this country.
    2. Our very leftist "hate America & Patriot" Press, Education System and Media pays more attention to Mexico's independence day
    than the USA's, the one they live in. Video's show that most under the age of 50 can't describe one detail of our fight against Britain
    which led up to the signing of our Declaration of Independence. They view Independence Day as an ET (alien) attack.

    Did not see Harris Faulkner on The View as I refuse to watch that show. Thank you for posting this video. What a class act that lady is. I am impressed every time I watch her. Thanks again.

    While talking to the grandmother of students where I once worked, the subject of hate and bias came up and absolute hate came through. I was not prepared for her comment, "someone ought to shoot Trump." When I said that some of what she hears about about Trump was not true or happened years ago-people change for the better- and that I got my news mostly from Fox, she walked away saying, That's your problem." I'm praying for her!

    I would have voted for you. I never signed up for your newsletter but was evidently "signed up" just by looking at a request to do so. I have actively read it since (although offended by the bogus sign up). I now rarely read it as I am even more upset that a link to voice my opinion on a political matter would have shared my personal information without limit. I am now inclined to view you as a charlatan and a hustler. Greed seems to have overcome the convictions we thought you had. Sad.

    Only the scum of the earth in America (leftists and their cohort Illegal Aliens) would take to the streets in protesting nonsense activity at the border a during the week America celebrates it's Independence Day. God forbid doing it for "sinkhole duh-my-oh" (cinco de mayo).
    Governor....myself and about 100 million Americans are tired of seeing Mexican flags flying in our land. If the Illegals are so proud of their country....why are they here? HANDOUTS and CRIME...that's it. Time to pull the plug, build the wall and shut the door....then evict the ones here. Trump and the true Americans in the government must stand their ground take action.

    Woe to judicial nominee. That poor person will have every iota of his/her life parsed, chewed , and spit out. How about that swear word as a teen, or that speeding ticket, or he/she must certainly be a bigot if they are religious. “And what exactly are you going to do about Roe? Do you you believe women shepuld have control of their body? We understand you used the word queer when you were ten. How do you explain that deep bias against gays? Will you answer to the
    Pope, the church leaders, your pastor, your rabbi, when making decisions? Oh, you will answer to you imam, that’s great. As a woman, surely you will support Roe. As a man with five children, I can see you would be against Roe. I see you got a DUI when you were 16. Have you over overcome your alcoholism? As a black woman, how is it that you have conservative views. Surely you know the founding fathers wrote the Constitution as slave holders. Why you might even be a descendent of one of them when heraped your slave ancestor.” I know this is far out, but this is how The libs treat constitutional candidates. The ones they like are those who legislate from the bench. Why anyone would want to undergo that, I do not know. In this climate protesters will harass their children, other family members, wife or husband. Their children will be bullied in school, and their wives shunned at the gym. Perish the thought he or she might want to go out to eat.
