Now, this is what I call a stunning development: The Daily Caller reports that on November 19th, FBI agents raided the home of former FBI contractor Dennis Nathan Cain to seize documents. Cain is a recognized Justice Department whistleblower who had privately delivered documents pertaining to Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and the Russian company that purchased Uranium One.

Abortion in America

November 29, 2018

Tuesday night, I was on “The Story” with Martha MacCallum on Fox News (you can watch that segment here if you missed it: )

The topic was a push by pro-life groups for the Supreme Court to review a ruling by a federal court that an Indiana law signed by then-Gov. Mike Pence was unconstitutional.  It requires abortion doctors to inform patients that abortions were not permitted if the reason for ending the pregnancy was the unborn baby’s race, color or potential for having a disability such as Down syndrome.  Supporters hope that under the current SCOTUS line-up, the High Court will uphold the law. 

Commentary continues below advertisement

There have been a number of state laws seeking to limit abortion in incremental ways.  Courts have allowed some and struck down others, sometimes in ways that make you think protecting abortion was more important than even protecting the life of the mother.  But the ruling striking down this law was especially appalling.  We have many laws designed to prevent discrimination on the basis of race, gender or disability; but this court effectively ruled that the only people who can be legally discriminated against for those reasons, and in a way that is literally lethal, are children in the womb.


Pro-abortion forces (I will call them “pro-choice” when they start promoting the choice of not killing the baby as strongly as they do the choice of killing it) don’t want the SCOTUS to hear this because they’re afraid it will lead to more updates and restrictions on Roe v. Wade.  Frankly, it should.  Roe v. Wade dates back to 1973, and was based on judges with no medical training trying to grasp the state of prenatal science as it existed 45 years ago.  Would you go to a doctor who hadn’t updated his medical knowledge in 45 years? 


There have been rulings since that updated Roe v. Wade, but the courts still lag far behind the scientific advances made in understanding the processes of conception and gestation. I don’t see how it’s possible for anyone to continue to deny that life begins at conception and still claim to be a member of the “party of science.”  But then, the left hardly demonstrates consistent logic when they argue that we need millions of immigrants because we don’t have enough workers, while defending a barbaric practice that’s slaughtered 60 million children over the past half-century who would have joined the work force.


As for the pro-abortion side’s fear and the pro-life side’s hope that the next case might lead to Roe v. Wade being overturned, I think both misunderstand what that would mean.  It wouldn’t automatically ban abortion in the US.  It would simply return the issue to the states, where it belongs, and where it resided before the SCOTUS found a hitherto-unnoticed right to kill unborn babies hidden in the Constitution.  Some states likely would ban abortion, but others such as New York and California might remove all restrictions and see even more abortions.


Ultimately, the scourge of abortion is never going to be ended by a law or a court ruling. What that will take is for hearts and minds to change so that we all recognize the personhood of a child in the womb.  When we get over the ridiculous self-delusion that an unborn baby is just a “mass of tissue” until the moment it’s born and miraculously turns into a person, then that child will be protected by the Fifth and 14th Amendments that say you can’t deprive a person of life or liberty without due process. 


In the meantime, we should continue to pass and defend laws such as the one in Indiana. It may not be the ultimate solution, but anytime we can put a new hindrance on the wholesale slaughter of innocent unborn children, it's a step for a more civilized culture and society.

After two years of special counsel nonsense and the sinking feeling that justice will never prevail, we’re finally seeing some of Robert Mueller’s targets and witnesses fighting back, vigorously.  By far the most heartening of these is the President of the United States himself, who is starting to talk tough.

This travesty of “justice” has been going on for so long, with seemingly no limitations, that I know many of my readers have thrown up their hands and given up thinking there will ever be anything but a two-tiered system of justice.  “Why doesn’t the President DO something??” is the common lament.  “I have no hope that Hillary will ever pay for anything she’s done,” is another.  Some are so disgusted (or confused, or bored) that they don’t even want to think about it any more.

Flake can't leave soon enough

By Mike Huckabee

Outgoing Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake illustrated why he’s outgoing by attempting to hold GOP agenda items hostage during the final days of Republican control of Congress unless the Senate passed a bill preventing President Trump from being able to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.  Joining with two Democrats, Flake called for a unanimous consent vote on the measure, and Utah Sen. Mike Lee scuttled it by rising in opposition. 

What you’ll mostly hear in the media will be a lot of outrage and spin, so go to the link and read Lee’s perfectly sound reasons for why this effort was unconstitutional and in violation of the separation of powers.  In a nutshell, Congress cannot tell the President that he’s not allowed to fire someone that the Constitution clearly gives him the power to fire. That would have the effect of turning Mueller’s investigation team into an unaccountable fourth branch of government, and they’re already acting too much like that now.

There’s also the minor side issue that Trump’s let Mueller go on this long and never even tried to fire him.  Plus Flake’s citing of Trump’s tweets complaining about Mueller as justification to try to restrain his executive powers implies that he doesn’t think the President even has a First Amendment right to free speech.  To that I would reply, “Flake off.”


Daniels turns on Avenatti

By Mike Huckabee

Porn star Stormy Daniels is apparently turning against her attorney Michael Avenatti.  Daniels told NBC that Avenatti filed that disastrous defamation suit against President Trump against her wishes.  She claims that he’s not shown her the respect and deference an attorney should show to a client, including speaking on her behalf without her approval, refusing to tell her how her legal defense fund was being spent, and launching a new fundraiser without her consent, using her face and name without permission and attributing words to her that she never said.  Avenatti responded that there were a number of things in her statement that were not accurate, but didn’t specify them.

Well, this is a real conundrum.  Who are we supposed to believe: a sleazy exhibitionist who does disgusting things in front of cameras for money, or the porn star?


Another flop from Ocasio-Cortez

By Mike Huckabee

Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just keeps on hitting easy pop flies to her critics. This time, she tweeted a letter to illustrate how greedy insurance companies would let a patient die if she can’t raise funds to pay for a heart transplant.  Problem: the letter clearly isn’t from an insurance company.  It’s from a medical clinic that largely operates on charity, and it’s informing the patient that she needs to have a minimum of $10,000 to cover the anti-rejection drugs that aren’t covered by Medicare – which is the government program she wants to expand to all of us.  So, thanks, I guess for the vivid illustration of why we should avoid that.

Democrats nominate Pelosi

By Mike Huckabee

Despite all the Democratic candidates insisting that they would not support Nancy Pelosi and would demand a fresh face (sorry), on Wednesday, Democrats nominated Pelosi as Speaker in a closed-door caucus election in which she ran unopposed.  She’ll still need 218 votes in the full House to win back the gavel, but do you seriously think there’s any possibility that anyone else has the slightest chance of toppling her? 

Here’s a story about it:

And here’s my reaction, captured on video:


Leftist narrative gutted

By Mike Huckabee

We hear the outcry constantly: More guns result in more crime and violence!  Allowing concealed carry will lead to bloody confrontations, more accidental shootings and the return of the Wild West!  Well, quite a few states have done it anyway, and the effects on crime and violence rates are starting to trickle in. Turns out there’s a reason why it’s said that the Wild West was tamed by the Winchester Model 1873 lever-action rifle and the Colt Single Action Army pistol.

I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving dinner, and that it wasn’t ruined by relatives’ political diatribes or by some home-from-college sophomore accusing you of “fat-shaming” the turkey by calling it a Butterball.

Black Friday

November 23, 2018

Happy Black Friday, America! Although thanks to the Internet and early Black Friday deals, Black Friday is no longer stirring as much controversy as it did when it first started encroaching on Thursday night and pulling people away from their family Thanksgiving celebrations.
