Today's Edition



It’s hard to know where to start in dissecting the House Intelligence Committee’s questioning of acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire, particularly the disgraceful performance of Chairman Adam Schiff. So I’ll ease into it by quoting former independent prosecutor Ken Starr, in a Thursday night interview with FOX News’ Shannon Bream:

“I think we need a little dignity in Washington,” he said, “on both sides of the aisle. It would be helpful if we just said, ‘Mr. Chairman, we call you on this. You call the President because of his tweets, or whatever; why don’t you show some dignity, especially since you knew you were playing to the crowd?' I just think it’s this constant...” and then he trailed off, maybe because it’s hard to end that thought with a word that can be used on TV. Then he went on: “What I would say is, let’s have a full debate instead of the kind of show that we had today [Thursday], where I think the vice-admiral [Maguire], who has had such an exemplary career, was calumnied [maliciously defamed] in a very, I think, vicious way, and it was very unbecoming to the House of Representatives and the Intelligence Committee to do that...Today was an oversight hearing, but it’s masquerading as impeachment.”


With gratitude,

The Nobel Peace Prize

By Mike Huckabee

The Nobel Peace Prize may have become something of a joke and a political football, but at least some Nobel Prize nominees are truly deserving of a new award, as this article from June reminds us.

This man speaks with authority, because he has seen and survived things that our current shallow, history-challenged class of politicians cannot even imagine.  To learn more about his inspiring and miraculous life, watch this interview that I was privileged to do with him, but a recent episode of “Huckabee” on TBN.


Personal note to reader Hugh G

By Mike Huckabee

You are to be congratulated for “digging deeper” to get background on the so-called “whistleblower” scandal. How great it would be if everyone did that! At the same time, my research team wanted you to be aware that no single commentary --- with the possible exception of a hypothetical one approaching the length of the full Harry Potter series --- is going to contain all the points, all the “sound background,” relevant to this extremely multi-faceted story. The effect of our commentary is, by necessity, cumulative.

If you’ve been reading every day –- better yet, twice a day, as we now offer an Evening Edition –- you know we’ve been looking closely at Democrats’ efforts to reach exactly the same sort of quid pro quo with which they want to tar Trump. On September 25, we brought up Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut, who is STILL trying to stop Ukraine from investigating the Bidens and who, like the senior Biden, likes to boast of being able to throw his weight around. We also linked to a more detailed John Solomon piece, which you’ve likely read, but just in case:

Of course, we’ve focused hard on the push by then-Vice President Joe Biden to oust the Ukrainian prosecutor who happened to be investigating his son, as Ukraine is central to the whole brouhaha. Surely by now we’ve all seen the video of Biden stupidly bragging about his clout in Ukraine when he threatened to rescind more than $1 billion in aid and got the prosecutor fired. I’m sure you know that this is just one of the problems the Democrats have right now, particularly with their longstanding claim that “Russians hacked” their server. Then we have the Three Stooges --- Menendez, Durbin and Leahy --- inserting themselves into the special counsel investigation (!) with their stunning letter to a Ukrainian official; we brought that into the discussion on Thursday in our Evening Edition.

These stories carry so much information that we don’t want to just drop them all in your lap at once –- that’s bound to be information overload. So we generally look at how everything is unfolding and pick the most important focus for each given day.  Now is the time for clarity as Trump, dangerously close to exposing the truth about Ukrainian election interference as well as CrowdStrike and the DNC server, is causing Democrats to act like rabid hyenas on PCP.

Again, we wish everyone were as well-informed as you, especially since most media are either ignoring or misreporting the real story. We’re working to bring it all to you right here, so you won’t have to go to THE NEW YORK TIMES or WASHINGTON POST. I daresay that if you park yourself at, you’ll be better informed on this enormous scandal and have a clearer understanding of it than most readers of either of those publications.




News Roundup

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s a news round-up unlike any you’re likely to hear elsewhere, because it’s about things that are actually getting accomplished in Washington.  Not surprisingly, President Trump did all of them.

On Wednesday, Trump announced that he and Japan’s Prime Minister have agreed to the first stage of a new trade deal that will open up $7 billion worth of markets for US agricultural products…

…He also met with the President of El Salvador and held a joint press conference to discuss the agreement they struck to curtail illegal immigration (bonus fun: imagine all the reporters’ heads exploding when President Bukele praised Trump and said he’s looking forward to working with him “for the next five years”)…

Finally, Trump met for the first time in person with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who called his phone conversation with Trump “normal” and said, “Nobody pushed me” to investigate Biden.

Okay, so that’s what Trump accomplished on Wednesday alone.  Now, let’s look at what the Democratic House accomplished on Wednesday…


Well, it turns out all they did is what they’ve done every day for 266 days since they assumed the majority: they accomplished nothing except yelling for the impeachment of the only guy in DC who’s actually getting anything accomplished.

##Appellation##, I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:

Comment of the day...Scott Sutton after watching the “Pelosi admits she hasn't read the Ukraine call transcript” Fox segment: “Clearly her cheese has slipped off the cracker”


Well, okay, so maybe Trump didn’t threaten to withhold funds from Ukraine in a quid pro quo to go after Joe Biden… BUT! The funds were suspended, so there was an UNSPOKEN threat during that Trump-Zalensky phone call! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH!...

Oops, hold on: a Ukrainian official now says they weren’t even aware that the funds had been suspended until a month after the phone call.

Once again, just as Trump is a really bad racist (overseeing prison reform and record low black and Hispanic unemployment), it appears he’s also the world’s worst extortionist.  If you’re going to blackmail Ukraine by threatening to withhold aid if they don’t do what you want, you’ve got to tell them right to their faces, like Joe Biden did.  And bragged about it! 

Maybe the Democrats can impeach him on grounds of incompetence because he’s just so lousy at being a racist, warmonger, stock market-crasher, Russia-colluder and Ukraine extortionist.

    We are quite concerned about our Republican leaders in DC. Why have they (not just a few, the one's we see everyday) but EVERY REPUBLICAN in DC not stepping forward with a loud voice condemning what is going on? We need critical mass against this craziness!

    not to give you a little nudge here, BUT I have submitted probably 50+ responses to your forum--I see none of them published--maybe they are too "nasty" for this blog, but I have seen more controversial replies than mine posted.
    I don't really care that much about seeing anything I wrote posted, but this is the only record available to me that indicates you have actually read the post, as you claim--a simple "I got your post and I agree/disagree" with it will suffice.

    I did see Ed Mosberg on your TV show and listened to his story. I was in Germany in 1963 but never went to the tourist sites since we visited my late brother who was stationed there. Just looking at the camps gave me pause. I don't think I could visit but pray for those who suffered the evil. He is right, AOC doesn't want to hear anyone who doesn't agree with her like all the socialists and democrats. I'm a life long learner myself and a very proud senior despicable as we are now called.

    I've been studying politics and political history for the past 30 years. My specialty is U.S. Presidents. That said, I hope that the House of Representatives impeaches Trump. Let me tell you what will happen next!

    1. The House can pass articles of impeachment over the objections of the Republicans, and refer to the Senate for trial.

    2. The Senate will conduct a trial. There will be a vote, and the Republicans will vote unanimously, along with a small number of Democrats, to not convict the President. Legally, it will all be over at that point.

    3. However, during the trial, and this is what no one is thinking about right now, the President's attorneys will have the right to subpoena and question ANYONE THEY WANT... That is different than the special counsel investigation, which was very one-sided. So, during the impeachment trial, we will be hearing testimony from James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson, Donna Brazile, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Christopher Steele, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, and a whole host of other participants in this whole sordid affair and the ensuing cover up activities.

    A lot of dirt will be dug up; a lot of truth will be unveiled. Finger pointing will occur. Deals will start being made, and suddenly, a lot of democrats will start being charged and going to prison. All this, because, remember, the President's team will now, for the first time, have the RIGHT to question all of these people under oath – and they will turn on each other. That is already starting.

    4. Lastly, one more thing will happen, the Senate will not convict the President. Nothing will happen to Trump. Most Americans are clueless about political processes, the law, and the Constitution. Most Americans believe that being impeached results in removal from office. They don't understand that phase 2 is a trial in and by the Senate, where he has zero chance of conviction. Remember, the Senate is controlled by Republicans; they will determine what testimony is allowed -- and **everything** will be allowed, including: DNC collusion with the Clinton campaign to fix the election in favor of Hillary, the creation of the Trump dossier, the cover up and destruction of emails that very likely included incriminating information.

    They will incriminate each other for lying to the FISA court, for spying and wiretapping the Trump campaign, and for colluding with foreign political actors, especially George Soros. After the Senate declines to convict the President, we will have an election, and Trump will win. It will be a backlash against democrat petulance, temper tantrums, hypocrisy and dishonesty.

    Even minorities will vote for Trump, because, for the first time, they will see that Democrats have spent 2+ years focused on maintaining their own power, and not doing anything at all about black murders in Chicago, homelessness, opioids, and other important issues that are actually killing people. And, we will spend the following four years listening to politicians and pundits claim that the whole impeachment was rigged.

    So let's move on to impeachment.”

    It's really becoming quite tiresome that all the Democrats can focus on is attempting to damage Trump, but seem oblivious that they keep damaging themselves instead. Does the Democrat controlled House plan to accomplish anything at all worthwhile before the next election - something that truly improves America - building it up - instead of tearing it down? It would be encouraging for them to show respect for the Office of the President instead of this constant hate and disdain, spreading venom and lies daily. I'm almost 75 and have never seen any party behave so abominably during the last three quarter centuries.

    “Clearly her cheese has slipped off the cracker” Not exactly the vision my 'military mind' brings up. The mess hall, I'm sure to this day, had something usually at breakfast we referred to as "SOS." It doesn't rhyme with 'Soap On A Shingle,' but not much imagination required to come up with the appropriate item on that shingle! In Pelosick's case, she only had a handful of stuff missing that shingle!! She may be in the deep stuff, if she doesn't have enough 'anti-bacterial' "soap."

    I am so glad Donald Trump was elected president. If Hillary had been elected we would be in the same "do nothing" state we were in with Obama. Mr Trump has done so many things to help this nations economy with jobs and being business wise, he has helped in ways normal polititions would not think of. He gets credit for nothing with the left wing news. That's why we need you to bring us the untold stories of what the man has actually done. Thank You and yes, my wife and I will be at the poles to vote for Mr Trump, again.

    How many Dems have Ukrainian ties aside Biden since Carter era?
    Be nice to see how many of the 231 have ties for voting impeachment.
    Impeachment is a Vendetta Tool only, No Nation issue save for Civil War or Rev .
    Founders didn't want Impeachment as Vendetta tool
