Today's Commentary: Congressional oversight moves towards impeachment of Rosenstein -- The Michael Cohen tapes -- Wilkie confirmed -- Story to make your day -- Facebook faces consumer backlash -- Evening Edition - Daily Verse




Whatever makes the Trump administration look good this week, such as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s spectacular congressional hearing Wednesday in which he slapped down those who tried to politicize it, or the positive meeting on trade with the head of the EU, or perhaps the anticipated Friday announcement of stunning GDP growth, will no doubt by drowned out by mainstream media screams about unintelligible Cohen tapes and/or the pressing need for John Brennan to have a security clearance. For this reason, I even hesitated a moment before writing about the news of congressional Republicans calling for deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s impeachment. Sigh. MORE noise? MORE swamp? MORE scandal?

But every day...

The Michael Cohen tapes

By Mike Huckabee

I haven’t commented yet on the media hoohah over the Michael Cohen tapes because, frankly, the only thing about it that I find to be worthy of outrage is that any reputable attorney would secretly record private conversations with a client, any prosecutor with integrity would seize those tapes, and any legitimate news organization would actually air them. But then I realized we’re talking about Michael Cohen, Robert Mueller and CNN.

The latest news is that it appears Cohen did this all the time. Another tape was of a call with CNN’s Chris Cuomo that he swore to Cuomo was off the record. He even assured Cuomo that he wasn’t running a tape and his cell phone was in his desk drawer, while he was actually recording the entire two-hour conversation. If Mueller hopes to pressure Cohen into turning state’s witness, he’s certainly going to have a believable person on the stand.



Wilkie confirmed

By Mike Huckabee

With all the hysteria in Washington over non-stories like the possible revocation of security clearances for leakers and liars who never should have had them in the first place, you probably never even heard one of the most important stories from Monday’s news...





Story to make your day

By Mike Huckabee

President Trump was speaking at the VFW Convention in Kansas City when he recognized 94-year-old World War II veteran Sgt. Alan Q. Jones of Pennsylvania.  Jones had four brothers who also served in World War II, the oldest of whom died in battle in Italy.  He’s given 70 years of his life in service to the Veterans of Foreign Wars.  But Trump didn’t just acknowledge him, he surprised Jones by bringing him on stage and giving him the microphone.  Jones used it to make a very special request of Trump.  And without a second thought, the President granted his wish.  To see what it was, click the link.

Facebook faces consumer backlash

By Mike Huckabee

In my essay on socialism and why it stinks like last month’s leftover halibut, I noted that when the government provides services for you, you have no choice; but under capitalism, even the biggest corporation can be brought to its knees by its customers if it doesn’t please them.  Little did I know that within 24 hours, I’d have an example of that.

Wednesday, Facebook warned of weak revenues, and its stock price dropped by as much as 24% before it recovered enough to close down 17%.  There are various reasons given, such as the effects of new privacy policies on revenue.  But it boils down to consumer choice: Facebook is struggling because it got too big for its britches.  It decided that as the almighty social media platform, it could violate your privacy, mess around with your news feed, snoop on your friends, decide which type of political speech was allowed and which type was taboo (guess which was which?), and so on.  They never imagined that users would respond by simply leaving, migrating to other social media sites or even going outside, squinting into the sun, and doing something else with their lives. 

It’s too early to tell whether this warning shot will put the fear of consumers into the self-anointed demigods of Silicon Valley, but if not, then they’re in for more rude awakenings. Two of the greatest things about capitalism are that it can make a pauper with a great idea into a billionaire; and that if said billionaire forgets that the customers are the boss, he can become a pauper again.
