Hillary Clinton’s recent remarks in India, in which she blamed her Presidential loss in 2016 on Trump voters being racist and sexist, and on women obeying their husbands and voting against her, rightly generated so much angry backlash that Democrats up for reelection in red states are trying to build a “big, beautiful wall”...between them and Hillary.

Those comments were so breathtakingly insulting that they overshadowed another phony excuse that Hillary floated: that she got the votes of the “optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving-forward” parts of America responsible for two-thirds of US GDP while Trump-supporting states are presumably the habitats of knuckle-dragging layabouts and hillbillies. But that shouldn’t be allowed to pass without comment. Turns out it would have been more accurate to say that she got the votes of the parts of the country run by people who think like her and that, therefore, people are fleeing like rats off a sinking ship.

Facebook apologizes

By Mike Huckabee

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took out full page ads in major Sunday newspapers (I’ll let the irony of that sink in for a while…Okay, ready to continue?) to apologize over the recent scandal involving unauthorized data gathering. The ad read, “We have a responsibility to protect your information. If we can’t, we don’t deserve it.”

Almost as hard to believe as the apology (and the fact that it ran in dead-tree newspapers) is the idea that anyone was really shocked by the idea of their personal information being mined for marketing and advertising uses by social media sites. It has to be because this particular company did business with the Trump campaign, since Facebook hardly made it a secret that they were giddy to use their databases to help Obama and Hillary.



The three things Americans can't live with

By Mike Huckabee

I was Lt. Gov of AR when the Governor was forced to resign because of felony convictions and that elevated me to the office of Governor. We fought the corruption that had infected the state and saw about 17 legislators and other high officials indicted, tried, and convicted. It was so bad at one point that the most feared words for an Arkansas politician were these: “Will the defendant please rise?”

2 inmates in their cell at one of our state prisons were talking one day when one said to the other, “You know, the food was better in here when you were the Governor.” And if you asked a politician how many years he had served, he would respond, “You mean in office or in prison?”

Public corruption is disgusting and demoralizing, but since the beginning of our nation, we’ve had to deal with public officials who betrayed the people’s trust, whether Benedict Arnold or Richard Nixon or Bill Clinton. And through it all, our country continues due to a Constitution and our being a people of laws and not a mere country of men.



At least some lawyers avoid conflicts of interest

By Mike Huckabee

At the end of last week, word was that with the exit of John Dowd, President Trump’s lead attorney in the special counsel investigation, Trump was bringing on the husband-and-wife legal team of Joseph diGenova and Victoria Toensing. It turns out, though, that conflicts of interest will prevent them from assuming those positions. Their firm already represents at least one client who will be testifying in the investigation.

One problem for Trump: Robert Mueller is fishing in such a huge lake that it’s hard to find a lawyer in Washington DC without an existing client who represents a conflict of interest. In general, though, such conflicts are a fact of life in the legal profession, at least among attorneys who still have enough integrity to avoid cases in which they HAVE conflicts of interest. Attorneys with that kind of integrity appear to be on the endangered species list –- in Washington, they must be nearly extinct. In fact, after many months of following the twists and turns of the Hillary Clinton email case as it was dealt with by friends and supporters at the DOJ, FBI and State Department, the term “conflict of interest” seems to have lost all meaning.

The Stormy Daniels interview

By Mike Huckabee

Early Sunday evening, I thought I heard a wet plopping sound coming from my TV. Turns out it was just “60 Minutes’” reputation for journalistic integrity taking a nosedive into a giant pit of mud. I give Anderson Cooper props for at least looking somewhat embarrassed for being expected to ask probing questions about intimate details of an unsubstantiated story about an alleged, decade-old, sexual one-night stand from a porn star with a history of signing false statements, changing her story and taking money to shut up and go away.

The show struggled mightily to find a justification for this being treated as “news.” Liberals hoping for accusations against President Trump of an ongoing abusive sexual relationship were disappointed when the woman in question denied being a “Me Too” victim or spending more than one night with Trump eleven years ago or doing anything non-consensual. The excuses for airing this sleaze hinged on an unsubstantiated claim of a threat by an unknown person in a parking lot and the suggestion that Trump’s lawyer’s payment to make a nuisance go away might violate federal campaign finance laws.
