Dominating the national conversation for the next few days will no doubt be the interview between ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and fired FBI Director James Sanctimonious --- I mean Comey. This exchange of softball questions and self-serving answers, edited down to one hour (minus commercials) from five hours of conversation, was perhaps the most sickening piece of political propaganda I’ve ever seen on a major network. And that’s saying something.

It’s a mystery how Comey even functions –- his mind, I mean. He wraps himself in “truth” while misrepresenting it numerous times in this interview. He seems to be in such denial that he’s oblivious to the irony of what he’s doing: chiding others for politicizing investigations WHILE APPEARING ON AN AGENDA-DRIVEN SHOW THAT IS POLITICIZING INVESTIGATIONS. The last 15 minutes or so of the interview are as political as it gets, with Comey actually saying in response to some conveniently leading questions that the President is morally unfit for office and calling on Americans to stop him at the ballot box.

FEC sued

By Mike Huckabee

A pro-Trump PAC has filed a lawsuit against the Federal Election Commission for ignoring their complaint that the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the DNC tried to circumvent campaign donation limits by allegedly using state Democratic Party chapters to launder up to $84 million. The lawsuit describes the FEC’s refusal to act as “arbitrary, capricious, contrary to law, and an abuse of discretion.”


Prayers for Former First Lady Barbara Bush

By Mike Huckabee

Former First Lady Barbara Bush, 92, has been battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and congestive heart failure. She has reportedly decided that she’s had enough of going in and out of hospitals and will decline further medical treatment, preferring to receive “comfort care” in her home. Her office released a statement reading, “It will not surprise those who know her that Barbara Bush has been a rock in the face of her failing health, worrying not for herself — thanks to her abiding faith — but for others.”

Mrs. Bush expressed thanks for the many kind messages and prayers she’s received. As there can never be too many prayers, I’m sure you’ll join me in sending more prayers and positive thoughts to this incredibly strong, courageous and inspiring lady and American icon.


DC Democrat moves to lower voting age to 16

By Mike Huckabee

Democratic Washington, DC, City Council member Charles Allen has introduced a bill to lower the voting age to 16. This is, of course, an extension of the idea that teenagers are wiser than adults and should be allowed to write laws and edit the Constitution because some of them who are terrified of school shootings got exploited by adults who want to repeal the Second Amendment.

As the linked article notes, Democrats must be pretty certain that people who are so young that they’ve always been taken care of by someone else and never had to take responsibility for their own actions would be natural Democratic voters. Personally, I won’t take this effort seriously until they can explain why anyone under 21 is too immature to buy a gun, but 16-year-olds are mature enough to vote. After all, both firearms and votes can be deadly when misused.

RIP R. Lee Ermey

By Mike Huckabee

Sad news from the show business world: Actor R. Lee Ermey has died at 74, due to complications from pneumonia. He played a number of roles, mostly military-related, the most iconic being his Golden Globe-nominated role as the tough-as-nails drill instructor, Gunnery Sergeant Hartman (“The Gunny”), in Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket.” Even though Kubrick was a notorious control freak, he admitted that about half of Ermey’s blistering, machine gun insults to his terrified recruits were his own creation.

Military tough talk was second nature to Ermey because he was the real deal. He spent 11 years in the US Marine Corps, including 14 months in Vietnam. He broke into show business as a technical advisor on “Apocalypse Now,” and also played a small part as a helicopter pilot.

It’s interesting to see all the tributes to Ermey pouring in from Hollywood power players, considering he went for several years with no offers of acting jobs. Why? He believed it was because he was a conservative, an NRA board member and an Obama critic. He said, “I was totally blackballed by the (expletive deleted) liberals in Hollywood. They can destroy you. They're hateful people (who) don't just not like you, they want to take away your livelihood...That's why I live up in the desert on a dirt road ... I don't have to put up with their c**p."

Did they really think R. Lee Ermey was going to leave without telling them exactly what he thought of them?

Semper fi, Gunny.
