Robert Mueller announced indictments Friday of 13 people in his investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. But even before Joy Behar could start dancing with glee, it was announced that the targets were all Russian nationals (plus three Russian entities). Their shenanigans had no effect on the election outcome, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said the indictments include no allegations that any American was a knowing participant in the Russian troublemaking.

Presumably, that means there’s still no evidence that anyone in the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to rig the election, so sit down, Joy. In fact, the indictment makes clear that the Russian meddling was all over the political map, in some cases boosting Trump, in others boosting Bernie Sanders. The Russians were behind organizing a pro-Trump rally and a He’s-not-my-President “Resistance” rally. Generally, they just used social media to stir up division, animosity and distrust in the US electoral system, which is pretty much what a lot of liberal news websites do for free.

DOJ connection to Fusion GPS 

By Mike Huckabee

We’ve already heard claims that the FBI improperly obtained FISA Court warrants to spy on the Trump campaign by not revealing that it was based on unverified opposition research paid for by the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign. Now, it’s been reported that Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr, who brought that dirt on Donald Trump to the FBI, didn’t disclose that Fusion GPS, which created the “dossier,” was paying his wife Nellie to work on it. Ohr has already been demoted; if this is found to constitute deliberate falsification of government ethics forms, he reportedly could be demoted to federal prisoner.



FBI protocols not followed

By Mike Huckabee

As if the FBI didn’t have enough tarnish on its reputation, FBI Director Christopher Wray admitted that a month ago, someone called the FBI’s Miami Office public access line to express concern about the future Florida school shooter’s (having mentioned his name once, I will never do so again; it’s my policy not to give murderous fame seekers what they want) “gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting.” And the agents did…nothing. Or as Wray’s statement put it, “established protocols” were not followed. Some are already calling for Wray’s resignation over this inexcusable lapse of responsibility that proved deadly.


Silver platter clues

By Mike Huckabee

It’s stunning to think that so many people seriously believe a few more laws would have prevented the Parkland shooting when everyone around this guy saw it coming and even phoned the sheriff and the FBI to report it. If the people in charge of enforcing the laws can’t even spot a threat when it’s handed to them on a silver platter, what are the odds that they’ll pick one out of an endless torrent of new background check paperwork?

Abortionists claim...

By Mike Huckabee

Human beings have a remarkable capacity for self-delusion, particularly when they believe in God yet are doing something they know is morally wrong. They have to find a way to relieve their consciences by rationalizing their actions. I think this might be the most extreme case of that I’ve ever seen: three self-proclaimed “Christian abortionists” claim that they are doing God’s work by killing late-term babies in the womb. Here’s a sample quote (warning, sit down before reading; it’s likely to make your head spin):

“I can imagine no person who is in greater need of Christlike love and excellent medical care than a woman who is faced with an untenable pregnancy, and I am grateful every day to feel thy spirit and thy guiding hand on my work.” I’ll remind you again, his “work” is ripping babies out of the womb and dismembering them.

As shocking as you might find this story, it’s not surprising to me. I’ve heard it before, from my friend Carol Everett. She was a Christian who was getting wealthy running a chain of abortion clinics. She also rationalized that she was “doing God’s work” by helping women in trouble, and even numbed her guilt by tithing a portion of the profits. But she knew that her business wasn’t really about helping pregnant women, it was about pressuring them to get abortions and pocketing the money. She eventually fell to her knees and asked God to give her a sign. She left the next day. She now runs an organization called the Heidi Group ( that helps women facing problem pregnancies with real medical care and pro-life solutions.

This is one arena in which religion and science are in growing agreement: a child in the womb isn’t a “growth” or a “tissue lump,” it’s a human being. As that becomes more obvious, abortion is becoming less common and less accepted by the younger generation. Personally, I’d say that is “God’s work.”


Real problem points to leftwing

By Mike Huckabee

As leftwing political figures and their supporters in the entertainment industry predictably fired up calls for more gun control laws in the wake of this week’s deadly Florida school shooting, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin said they’re ignoring the real problem because it points right back at them.
