If you listen to the mainstream media, you’d think that Trump’s Oval Office Address on border security Tuesday was a disaster, and we should all listen instead to the wise adults, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, who assure us there is no problem with having a porous border and somewhere between 11 and 30 million people residing in America illegally with more flowing in every day. Seldom has the media narrative been more at odds with public perception, and I’m not just talking about all the memes ridiculing how Pelosi and Schumer looked.

After more than two years of hyperbolic, 24/7 anti-Trump media coverage, viewers who don’t keep up closely with politics were primed to see that the Oval Office had been taken over by a ranting, crazy, hateful, incoherent, Hitler-quoting monster.  Instead, they saw a President who seemed to be thoughtful, soft-spoken and compassionate about the terrible toll that an unsecured border is taking on both Americans and the people risking their lives to sneak in, but firm and resolute about forcing his political opponents to work with him to solve it.  That was such a disconnect from what the media’s been telling them for years that it made it hard to believe anything else they had to say (and considering their transparently partisan - and preemptive - attempts at “fact-checking” him, that was a wise choice.)

All eyes on the Court

By Mike Huckabee

Due to a series of health problems, 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg missed opening oral arguments this week for the first time in 25 years. Despite assurances that she’s fine (and I wish her well and hope you’ll all say a prayer for her health), unsourced rumors are flying that she might be about to retire, even as soon as today, and the White House is already preparing, just in case they have to name a successor.

With the SCOTUS now tilted 5-4 conservative, for President Trump to replace a liberal Justice with another Constitution-respecting nominee would cement a solid conservative majority for years (unless if you’re like Chief Justice Roberts and don’t believe there are such things as liberal or conservative judges.) But first, any nominee he names will have to survive a Mount Vesuvius-level eruption of rage from the left and a gauntlet-of-fire confirmation that will make the Brett Kavanaugh hearings look like the Teddy Bears’ Picnic.



Livestreaming politics

By Mike Huckabee

While many conservatives think that the worst thing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has done is to help sugarcoat and glamorize socialism, they overlook what may be her most pernicious influence on the body politic: her livestream videos of her cooking dinner in her kitchen have convinced less social media-savvy liberals that they, too, have to get down with the hip Internet thang. 

And so, we have to endure the cringeworthy display of Sen. Elizabeth Warren taking to the ‘net to drink a beer, almost like a regular person.  Now, even worse, Beto O’Rourke tried to illustrate his opposition to a border wall by streaming his plaque scraping during a dental appointment.  File this under “Videos that are more painful than a root canal.”


Hilarious arguments from the left

By Mike Huckabee

Jim Treacher at PJ Media illustrates that even if you take the left’s arguments against a border wall seriously, they’re still hilarious.  He’s not even a wall supporter, but listening to their ridiculous arguments against it have nearly convinced him to build it.

And here by itself is the #1 unintentional humor clip of the day: CNN’s top egomaniac, Jim Acosta, attempts to show up President Trump by going to a section of the border with a steel slat fence and smugly pointing out that he doesn't see any crowds of illegal immigrants trying to cross the border. Yep, nobody’s trying to cross…where the steel barrier is.  That sure proves Trump wrong, doesn’t it?  Not since “The Office” went off the air has there been a funnier clip of someone making a fool of himself on camera and not even realizing how dumb he sounds.

Planned Parenthood's mission

By Mike Huckabee

It’s nice of Planned Parenthood’s president to boldly admit that the organization’s “core mission” is providing, protecting and expanding access to abortions.  Now, since it’s illegal under the Hyde Amendment for federal funds to pay for abortions, why is PP still getting over a half a billion dollars of our tax money every year?  Oh, right: to pay for all the other women’s health services they provide – except, according to their own annual report, they mostly perform abortions, while the other services are shrinking or nonexistent. 

Say, here's a radical idea: how about giving all that money for women's health services to clinics whose core mission is providing women with health services?


The price of gas

By Mike Huckabee

Just days after it was announced that the USA had become a net exporter of oil for the first time in decades, British Petroleum-America announced the discovery of an area in the Gulf of Mexico that could produce as much as a billion barrels of oil.

Our last Democratic President piously assured us that we couldn’t drill our way out of an energy crisis, but it turned out we could, if the government would just get out of the way of the drills.

According to Triple-A, the average price of a gallon or regular gas right now is only $2.24.  That’s over 27 cents a gallon less than it was a year ago, and down from an all-time high of $3.64 in 2012.  To give you an idea of how cheap that is: if you feel nostalgic for the Jimmy Carter era of 1978, when gas was only 63 cents a gallon, you should know that, adjusted for inflation, that would be $2.44 today, or 20 cents more than the current average price.

The cheapest gas is in Missouri, where the average price is $1.87 a gallon, which means at many stations, it’s less.  Naturally, the highest gas prices are in tax-happy California, where a gallon of regular averages nearly $3.29.  That’s actually a shade higher than in Hawaii.

Let’s hope this news will be one more nail in the coffin of OPEC, which is already reeling from the glut of American oil and gas, and in the idea that the American people are desperate to put another Democrat back in the White House.  Why would they want to go back to driving to the unemployment office on $3.64-a-gallon gas?   



By Mike Huckabee

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer might not have inspired any confidence that Democrats give a flip about border security, but they sure inspired a lot of hilarious comments and memes.  Here’s a round-up of the latest and funniest.


Who will check the fact-checkers?

By Mike Huckabee

Who will check the fact-checkers?  Fortunately, a lot of people are, now that conservatives have wised up to how biased many of the alleged “fact-checkers” are, and how they often declare things to be “lies” or “falsehoods” that are actually just “opinions we disagree with” or “truths we find inconvenient.”

At the link, Mollie Hemingway breaks down how the mainstream media “fact-checkers” were so jazzed to blast Trump’s speech on border security as false and misleading before he ever said a word, and how spectacularly they botched their “fact-checking” when it turned out Trump had the facts on his side.  They were reduced to denying claims he never made at all, branding differences of opinion as lies and twisting things he said into things he never said.

As the cherry on top, blogger Jeff Dunetz takes a closer look at the left’s favorite misleading “fact,” the claim that illegal immigrants commit fewer crimes than US citizens.
