Democrats hoped that the Robert Mueller investigation of “Russian collusion” in the election would be like a stick that they could use to whack President Trump. Instead, it’s turned into a piñata that keeps dropping surprises every time you poke at it, and most of them are not harming Trump.

Last week, so many dropped that the floor is covered with revelations of bias, anti-Trump/pro-Clinton activism, corruption at both the State Department and the FBI, and possibly even an attempted coup. You’ve probably already heard a lot of the revelations, but here is Rep. Trey Gowdy doing a masterful job of summing them up...

Sex harassment allegation downs female Dem candidate

By Mike Huckabee

The “MeToo” scythe of sexual harassment allegations that’s cutting down prominent men in politics and entertainment just took a twist that might make some women rethink this whole "to heck with due process" craze.  The latest person felled is a former business executive and Democratic candidate for Congress from Kansas.  Andrea Ramsey has dropped out of the race after it was revealed that in 2005, her employer had to pay a settlement to a male subordinate who complained that she subjected him to “unwelcome and inappropriate sexual comments and innuendos,” made a sexual advance on him during a business trip, and fired him after he rejected her. 

Ramsey claims that the complaint was a false allegation by a vindictive ex-employee, and she blasted the national Democratic Party for trying to take the moral high ground by doing away with the presumption of innocence and believing every allegation without evidence.  She said, “We are in a national moment where rough justice stands in place of careful analysis, nuance and due process.”

Pretty much what I said about Roy Moore, but very few people in either party wanted to hear it.  Wonder if they’ll start thinking more seriously about treating every allegation as fact now that it’s destroying the careers and reputations of Democratic women?

Fighting the judges

By Mike Huckabee

One of the most insidious things about the “Affordable Care Act” (aside from the fact that it made health insurance far less affordable) is the massive expansion of government power it represented.  That stretched from forcing Americans to buy health insurance to forcing Catholic nuns to pay for birth control.  Until Congress can get its act together and repeal it as they’ve promised for years (at least the mandate will be gone, if they can pass the tax reform bill), President Trump is doing his best to dismantle it using the same tool Obama used: executive orders.  But as usual, he’s facing opposition from activist liberal judges. 

The latest is a federal judge in Pennsylvania, who on Friday temporarily blocked a Trump order exempting employers with religious or moral objections from having to supply free birth control.  HHS estimates that 99.9% of women would still keep that coverage.  Yet the judge ruled that Pennsylvania would “suffer serious and irreparable harm” if she didn’t block the exemption. 

This has already been appealed to the Supreme Court (remember Obama trying to force the Little Sisters of the Poor to pay for contraceptives or face devastating fines?), and they could have settled this once and for all.  Instead, the SCOTUS punted the issue back to the lower courts to work out some kind of “deal.”  But between this latest ruling and the continuing stays on the travel ban, one hopes they will get the message that too many lower court judges think there was already a deal made somewhere that crowned them kings and queens with gavels.  It’s the SCOTUS’ job to protect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, including the executive powers of the President over national security and the First Amendment freedom from government infringement of religious beliefs.  If the children refuse to stop treating the Constitution like a toy, then the parents need to do their duty and intervene.

Tracking Trump

By Mike Huckabee

Teenagers (and a lot of adults who should know better) refuse to listen to the handful of brave doctors who warn that it’s child abuse to subject kids to surgery and dangerous chemicals just because they think they’re a different gender.  There are all sorts of underlying psychological problems and passing physical or personal issues that could be the cause.  We might be inflicting permanent damage on kids in response to a temporary problem.  But it’s not PC to question anything with the word “transgender” attached, so even medical experts are shamed and shouted down if they dare question the narrative.

Jingle Bells is racist?

By Mike Huckabee

Well, we’ve already heard this Christmas that “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” promotes bullying and “Baby It’s Cold Outside” promotes “rape culture.”  Now, we’re hearing from a Boston college professor that “Jingle Bells” is racist.  I hope the public's reaction to this will be to go laughing all the way.

Killing jobs

By Mike Huckabee

Swiss-based Viking Cruises’ plans to put river cruise ships along the Mississippi have been scuttled, along with all the tourism jobs they would have created.  You can thank your friendly federal government and a pointless law requiring that all ships ferrying passengers between ports in the US must be American-built and operated by Americans.  It’s been around since the Grover Cleveland Administration in 1886, and it’s still stifling growth and killing jobs in 2017.  To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, there’s nothing so permanent as an outdated federal law.

    Unfortunately, I was unable to find your TV show Saturday night despite watching it a few weeks ago. But when I couldn't sleep early one morning I was able to watch Sarah Huckabee Sanders on the Laura Ingel show. I have seen her on the news in bits and pieces that the news media people are forced to show. Those do not do her justice but comments I read from your e-mail followers are able to see what a special person she is to family and millions of us who love what she is doing for us in the White House. Love that she said she is grounded by her 3 young children at home and the haters must be so jealous!

    Re. "Fighting the Federal Judges" That is exactly what we should be doing. It is against the Canons of Ethics for Judges to engage in political activism. ( http://www.uscourts.gov/judges-judgeships/code-conduct-united-states-judges ) A judge's tenure is granted subject to "good behavior" and breaking the Canons in the Code of Conduct is certainly misbehavior.
    JUDGES DO NOT HAVE TO BE IMPEACHED TO BE REMOVED FROM THE BENCH. A judge being found guilty of misbehavior in a court of law can be removed.
    WHY IS THIS NOT BEING DONE?!?
    I am sure that if a few judges are removed using this very constitutional technique, many of the "now activist" judges will think twice before usurping authority or trying to be a "king with a gavel."
    President Trump should put this issue high on his "To Do List" as well as any legislators or prosecutors who would like to curry favor with their constituents.
    I would love to hear President Trump shout, "YOU'RE FIRED" to these recalcitrant judges.
