John,

Memo to the media: Remember how you jumped all over candidate Trump for mocking a hostile reporter, claiming he was ridiculing a physical disability Trump said he didn’t know the reporter had? And how you refused to believe that phony excuse and assumed the absolute worst about his character? Well, when you mocked him and Mitch McConnell this week for Trump helping McConnell climb some steps, not realizing that McConnell had polio as a child and often needs help climbing stairs, should we also assume the absolute worst about you – that you were mocking McConnell’s disability — or does that apply only to Trump?

Not rubbing your nose in your ignorance and hypocrisy, just trying to establish the rules here. Thanks!

Mike Huckabee

Sessions earns NYT praise———————-——–

By Mike Huckabee

Attorney General Jeff Sessions earned rare praise from the New York Times for sending an expert hate crimes federal attorney to Burlington, Iowa, to help in the case of Kedarie Johnson, a gay, “gender-fluid” teenager who was shot to death in 2016. The Times noted that while Sessions’ DOJ has reversed the Obama-era move to redefine sex discrimination under Title IX to include “gender identity” (which was done, despite the left’s claims, not out of hatred and prejudice but because the President doesn’t have the authority to rewrite civil rights laws), he is proving that his Department will still defend the rights of transsexual individuals who are the victims of hate and violence.

Jacksonville Jaguars apologize…sort of

By Mike Huckabee

Jacksonville Jaguars President Mark Lamping has sent a formal letter of apology to Jacksonville’s Director of Military Affairs for the team owner and several players kneeling during the National Anthem at a game in London last month against the Baltimore Ravens. They later stood during the playing of “God Save the Queen.” There was a furious reaction in Jacksonville, a conservative town that’s home to a US Naval base. Lamping wrote that the team was “remiss in not fully comprehending the effect of the National Anthem demonstration on foreign soil has had on the men and women who have or continue to serve our country.”

While I applaud the Jaguars for belatedly waking up to how offensive it is to the US military to show disrespect for the National Anthem on foreign soil, I can’t help wondering how much longer it’s going to take them to realize that it is also offensive to show disrespect to the National Anthem on American soil. That’s same soil so many military members have fought and died to keep free to preserve their right to protest, even though some people are still having difficulty comprehending that just because you have a right to do something stupid, offensive and counter-productive, that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to do it.

Michigan city council takes a knee

By Mike Huckabee

Four members of the Ann Arbor, Michigan, city council “took a knee” during the Pledge of Allegiance. You can read their explanation of why at the link, but don’t expect it to make any sense. It sounds like a “word salad” tossed by a chef with a poli-sci degree from Berkeley. The only message that they managed to deliver loud and clear is that Ann Arbor voters need to elect four new city council members.

Dow Jones record———————–

By Mike Huckabee

Tuesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average briefly topped 23,000 for the first time ever. It gave conservative websites yet another chance to quote liberal economist Paul Krugman’s election night prediction that markets would “never” recover from Trump’s election. But then, the Dow has topped so many records since, and that quote has been repeated so many times, that some Trump supporters who own stocks might finally be getting tired of winning. Not many, though.

John,

Happy Monday America!

A big Huck’s Hero salute to Peter Lang, who runs the Safari West wildlife preserve in Santa Rosa, California. When the Sonoma wildfire threatened his nearby home and the 1,000 animals on his preserve (giraffes, antelopes, zebras, monkeys and many more), Lang could have fled or tried to save his house. Instead, he stayed on the wildlife preserve, facing down the blaze, putting out small fires, and constantly moving the animals to safety.

Lang’s home was lost to the fire, but he said, “I did not lose a single animal. It is amazing.” Friday, he reported that “the animals are safe and accounted for with full bellies and plenty of water to drink.” When word got out of his sacrifice, many people offered aid, but Lang suggested that they give it to his neighbors instead. He said, “I have a thousand souls I’m responsible for. It wasn’t even a decision. This is what I had to do.”

Sincerely,

Mike Huckabee

 

Iran’s President responds——————————

By Mike Huckabee

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani reacted negatively to President Trump’s decision to decertify Obama’s Iran nuclear deal. Rouhani said the US needs to reform its diplomacy and learn how to treat other nations. He further clarified that when Iran’s leaders chant “Death to America” several times a day, that’s aimed at US policies, not the American people.

Good to know.

Hillary’s claim blows up in her face

By Mike Huckabee

Hillary Clinton has admitted to drinking a lot of Chardonnay to get past the sting of losing the election. I can’t help wondering how much Chardonnay she had before deciding it was a good idea to complain to a TV interviewer about how intolerable it is to have a “sex assaulter” in the White House.

Geraldo reports

By Mike Huckabee

Press accounts that President Trump’s efforts to help Puerto Rico have been half-hearted and ineffective are “grotesquely unfair,” “the worst, most dishonest press” and outright “fake news.” No, that isn’t Trump talking. That’s reporter Geraldo Rivera, who just got back from Puerto Rico where he saw the rescue effort firsthand.

The High-Horse Cavalry———————–

By Mike Huckabee

Kellyanne Conway coined a great new term for liberals and feminists who protect men like Harvey Weinstein while attacking President Trump as a sexist, even though he’s continuing a long history of promoting competent women to positions of power. She’s dubbed these folks “the high-horse cavalry.”
