You’d assume from President Trump’s Twitter feed that he doesn’t need any help coming up with controversial statements to make his critics’ eyeballs pop out in outrage. So why do Democrats and media outlets (pardon my redundancy) think they need to keep making up things he never said to get themselves riled up over?

To cite just a few of the most famous ones: He was first branded as a racist for calling all Mexican immigrants drug dealers, murderers and rapists...except he never said that. He said our lax border security was letting in some illegal entrants, like MS-13 gang members, who are drug dealers, murderers and rapists. That’s unarguably true, but too hard to get outraged over.

With gratitude,

Mike Huckabee

"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

Recuperate from this trying news week with tonight’s St. Patrick’s Day episode of “Huckabee” on TBN! In addition to some leprechaun jokes that might turn you green, we have a great guest line-up. I’ll look for some bipartisan common ground with Kristen Day of Democrats for Life for America. Attorney Brent Helms will fill us in on the landmark Alabama baby personhood case. Huck’s Hero Ron Hall will give us a sneak peak at the new movie of his incredible true-life book, “Same Kind of Different As Me.” Bestselling spy novelist Joel Rosenberg unveils his latest ripped-from-the-headlines thriller, “The Persian Gamble.” And you can’t miss this: comedy by Steve Smith! Maybe you know him better as the king of duct tape, Red Green of “The Red Green Show,” one of the longest-running comedy shows of all time. Throw in my commentary on serious stories and some crazy news “In Case You Missed It,” and this show will make you feel giddier than green beer, only with no hangover.

It’s all coming your way tonight 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


Programming note

By Mike Huckabee

Programming note: there were a number of revelations at the end of the week relating to the Mueller investigation and the hinky “Russian dossier” that actually started it. I’m going to work on a piece assembling and explaining all those tangled threads over the weekend and post it Monday. So be watching for that in Monday’s newsletter and at


Laura Ainsworth: FOLLOW-UP on "The Brains Behind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez"

By Mike Huckabee

As of this writing (the wee hours of Friday morning), “The Brains Behind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” by “Mr. Reagan,” was up to almost 1.5 million views after being posted for about a week. I’d like to think I had a hand in some of that.

Here’s more about the organization called Justice Democrats, which was behind the “casting” of AOC to be the new representative for the 14th Congressional District, covering parts of New York City. For those not yet convinced that Mr. Reagan’s claim is more than a wild conspiracy theory, here’s an article in which the head of Justice Democrats boasts of their plan to do just what he was talking about –- on a large scale across the country. Of course, she doesn’t refer to AOC as a “puppet,” but in the interview it becomes clear that all the new faces they select will, in effect, function that way.

Misplaced blame

By Mike Huckabee

Whenever there is some unspeakable terror attack like Thursday’s mass shootings at two mosques in New Zealand, people naturally try to make some sense of it in the hope that if it can be explained, or if blame can be properly assigned, then perhaps we can prevent similar attacks. Unfortunately, attempting to predict future irrational acts by looking backwards seldom works. And in placing blame, people miss the obvious and tend to blame whatever they usually blame.

And so we had a CNN host suggesting that President Trump’s rhetoric inspired the killings.



Beto's roll-out

By Mike Huckabee

As I predicted yesterday, “Beto” O’Rourke’s presidential roll-out wasn’t greeted with as much adulation as he expected. While those who vote for Presidents based on “charisma” were dazzled, even some prominent liberals are skeptical that a brief term in the House, a losing Senate race and mad skateboard skillz are enough qualifications to be President. Nancy Pelosi was pressed to name a “signature accomplishment” of O’Rourke’s and came up empty (I heard that he did get a bill passed to rename a courthouse, proving that he is really good at coming up with better names for things than they started out with.)

There was even this brutal but hilariously spot-on assessment, from liberal journalist Michael Tracey, formerly of Young Turks...



A preview of Loretta Lynch's unredacted non-answers

By Mike Huckabee

We’ve been asking this question literally for years: If the DOJ and FBI had reason to suspect that foreign agents were trying to infiltrate the Trump campaign --- seriously enough to justify getting a warrant to spy on U.S. citizens who were Trump associates --- why on earth didn’t they brief Trump and/or top campaign officials about it?

It seems like the sensible thing for them to have done. But thanks to a new report from investigative reporter Sara A. Carter revealing closed-door testimony given by Loretta Lynch, we now find that our intelligence higher-ups handled this situation in a way that defies logic.



House Votes 420-0

By Mike Huckabee

The House voted 420-0 for Robert Mueller’s final report to be released publicly (four Republicans voted “present.”)

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler declared, “It is important that Congress stand up for the principle of full transparency.” That, of course, is pure, USDA Grade-A baloney. House Democrats have little use for transparency about their own offices, taxes or finances. They just want anything that might prove damaging or embarrassing to President Trump waved around in public like a giant foam finger. As for their claims that the report must be made public to “clear up any questions,” that’s also a load of cheap luncheon loaf. Before even seeing the report, Adam Schiff has already declared that he won’t accept it and will keep launching more investigations anyway.

For their part, Republicans are betting the Mueller probe will have labored mightily, expensively and at great length and found zero “Russian collusion.” But if the report remains secret, as the law requires, Democrats would keep flailing that dead horse forever.

    IRS 501C3

    Consider this quote from a retired IRS agent is appropriate in light of the principle
    above. In the words of Steve Nestor, a retired IRS Senior Revenue Officer :
    I am not the only IRS employee who’s wondered why churches go to the
    government and seek permission to be exempted from a tax they didn’t owe to
    begin with, and to seek a tax deductible status that they’ve always had anyway.
    Many of us have marveled at how church leaders want to be regulated and
    controlled by an agency of government that most Americans have prayed
    would just get out of their lives. Churches are in an amazingly unique position,
    but they don’t seem to know or appreciate the implications of what it would
    mean to be free of government control." (Quote from the Forward of In Caesar's
    Grip, by Peter Kershaw)
