MORNING EDITION

July 11, 2020 

By Mike Huckabee

"HUCKABEE" PREVIEW

Join me tonight on TBN for another terrific new episode of “Huckabee,” where “canceled” is a word you’ll never hear! I’ll welcome Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Pastor Matthew Barnett of the Dream Center, and author/political adviser Robert Woodson, who helped launch the 1776 Unites campaign, the African-American academics’ response to the New York Times’ bogus American history rewrite, “The 1619 Project.” We’ll have laughs from hilarious comedian Robert G. Lee and a performance by Christian music superstar Charles Billingsley. I’ll also have some comments on the week’s news and a special tribute to my friend, the late, great Charlie Daniels.

It all gets rolling tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, only on TBN. To find where you can watch TBN, from local cable and broadcast channels to streaming, visit https://www.tbn.org/huckabee and click on the “WATCH” menu at the top. You can also stream previous episodes, highlights and Internet-only “Digital Exclusives,” like extended interviews and extra performances by our musical and comedy guests.

CRY ME A RIVER

Friday, President Trump announced that he is commuting the three-year prison sentence of his former campaign adviser Roger Stone, which was set to begin in a few days. Trump is being vilified by Democrats and the media for making this move, but he probably figured he gets vilified by them for eating breakfast in the morning, so who cares? They’re already rushing to the cameras to declare him the “most corrupt President in history” for pardoning someone caught up in an illegal coup attempt, easily the worst political scandal in US history, which was hatched under the President they admire most, Barack Obama.

Trump’s spokespeople say Stone is 67 and his health would be at risk in prison. Besides, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the decision to commute was "in light of the egregious facts and circumstances surrounding his unfair prosecution, arrest, and trial," that the charges were the "product of recklessness borne of frustration and malice," and he could not get a fair trial in ultra-Democratic DC.

The charges against him, such as false statements and obstructing the Mueller investigation, all stem from the probe itself, which we now know was based on political animus, fraudulent “evidence,” illegally-obtained FISA warrants and no underlying crimes. It was also discovered that the forewoman of Stone’s jury hid the fact that she was virulently anti-Trump and had been posting nasty comments online about him and Stone during the trial, but the judge ruled that that somehow didn’t taint the verdict one whit. Stone continues to maintain his innocence and was already appealing his conviction.

I’m sure we’ll hear caterwauling from now until November about how outrageous it is that a 67-year-old Trump adviser isn’t doing hard time in the big house for process crimes, and from the same people who are letting rioters and looters out in 24 hours, giving sanctuary to Mexican drug gangsters and freeing thousands of actual criminals lest they contract a virus in prison. I guess what I’m trying to say is, “Cry me a river.”

HELD HOSTAGE

F.H. Buckley at the American Spectator explains why we’re seeing our cities ransacked and our history torched and shattered while Democrat city officials do nothing to stop it and arrest anyone who tries. It’s because we’re being held hostage. This is the left’s attempt to force us not to reelect Trump and to put them back into power, and Heaven help us if we dare cross them.

I have a better solution: throw their sorry rear ends out of power at every level, from federal government down to dog catcher. We’ll see how long they keep threatening us with mob violence once those mobs of over-indulged gender studies majors face an army of police sent in by the newly elected Republican mayors of L.A, New York City, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, St. Louis, etc. etc. etc.

I know that sounds like the impossible dream, but it can happen if everyone who’s fed up with this rampaging violence, anti-Americanism and intolerance – and if blacks and Hispanics consider the other point in Buckley’s column, that Trump’s policies are helping them while Democrat policies hurt them, and the false cry of “Racist!” is being used to keep minorities voting for Democrats against their own best interests.

A WOKE CIRCUS

Charles Barkley makes an excellent point about the idea of injecting a lot of leftist/BLM/social justice warrior messages and anthem kneeling into the NBA: no sports fan wants to tune in to watch a woke circus. Sports were where Americans went to escape politics, a meritocracy where race was meaningless and only talent and skill mattered. Barkley said we need police reform and prison reform, but we need good cops policing the bad cops -- and nobody wants to turn on a basketball game and see a bunch of rich people arguing about social justice issues with no real results.

He added, "This is a critical time in our country. I just hope we get some adults who know what they are doing and stop screwing around and dividing our country.”

And that’s why he’s called “Sir Charles.”

    Seems as tho folks here do in fact have some shame(conscience) when confronted, and followed up in a forthright, responsible manner. Too bad it had to be pursued in such a dogged way to prevail and prove the valid point. As we said, "Right Makes Might." And we "never, ever give up the noble, just, and good fight!" Amen.

    Just as we thought. Comment from this morning censored, because you self-indulgent, self-serving lame posers don't like being called out for the two-faced hypocrites you are. Shame on you Mike Huckabee for enabling such phonies to ego- and power-trip while hiding behind your auspices, or are you in fact, tacitly, or explicitly approving of this abusive, disrespectful behavior and policies? Are you just a control freak posing as a Good Old Boy? If so, you "Huck" are as big a fraud as your minions. Auwe on the whole mangy lot of ya!

    First thing I've heard that makes sense about why this is going on. Thanks, Mike. And also, thanks for laying out the strategy to defeat this insidious, cynical, cold-hearted tactic. I'm sure if the Dems would admit this is, indeed, what they're doing, they would deny those labels, saying that what they are doing is for a "greater good" and if a "few conservatives" get injured or killed, well, that's just the wages of their war. But in truth, it's their soldiers who are being put at risk and some killed, many injured, raped, etc. Vote them all out in November. I've thought for a long time that the Democratic party (which I used to belong to) has morphed into something that should be laid to rest. I hope it's not too late to save our country.

    And Sir Charles is right. I gladly claim him as one of the home state boys , now a man! And he went to the right school too. :)

    I just wanted to say THANK YOU. You always bring a smile to my face. Today's article "Cry Me A River" is spot on. After yelling YES to this commutation, I knew exactly what would happen next. And, it did ! Tough luck Dems. You released out hundreds, if not thousands, of prisoners from jails and prisons before their time was up. Drug dealers, batterers, pedophiles, thieves, rapists, were released and you want us to feel bad about not allowing a senior gentleman who was entrapped because of his choice of friends. I don't think so!!

    I received emails from the House Republicans that are written by the two past Republican House Speakers. Now that is enough to turn anyone off from donating! Those two morons did more to put the liberals in charge of the House than any twenty Democrats in George Soros' pocket!!

    Right Makes Might. Never, ever, give up the good fight!
    Will this comment get posted? Based on past experience, NO, and like previously, for NO valid, appropriate, or warranted reason. This certainly does NOT reflect well on the "moderators" of this site, who choose to exercise their so-called "discretion" in an arbitrary and capricious manner to indulge their vanity and conceit. Methinks The Governor would not approve of this ego and power-tripping on a publication having his name associated with it, but then the "moderators" make sure their chicanery never comes to his attention much in the same manner as the Deep State apparatchiks at twitter and facebook do. Censorship, in any form, is reprehensible and despicable.

    Today I witness a BLM shirt on a Human Being with regret The first thought was Moron then a second thought I could respect the BLM shirt only if they it said, BLM For just a few, under 10 lives. . That is a statement that is true and believable besides BLM is Marist group that doesn't matter to me. All I have to do is convince millions of morons they are no good no good NO GOOD Baby they are NO GOOD.
