A Democratic strategist is handicapping the leading party candidates for 2020 (a dumb idea: this far out, who would’ve predicted that Barack Obama would be the nominee in 2008, or Donald Trump in 2016?) But just for fun’s sake: he’s concerned that there’s no big star in the bunch. Looking at names like Senators Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris, he said there are a lot of Celine Dions, but no Beatles.

Pelosi steps in it

By Mike Huckabee

The longest-serving (and self-serving) member of Congress, Democratic Rep. John Conyers, announced that he’s stepping down (temporarily, we assume and he hopes) from his position as the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, following a rising number of accusations related to sexual misconduct around female staffers and misuse of taxpayer funds to pay off alleged victims

This came just hours after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tried to fend off calls for his resignation on “Meet The Press” (including a sharp demand from it from his liberal hometown newspaper, the Detroit Free Press). Pelosi called Conyers an “icon” who had done great things to protect women and who (unlike, I presume, Roy Moore) deserves due process. I think we can safely assume from Conyers’ abrupt exit so shortly afterward that her salvage effort went over with viewers about as well as tofurkey at an NRA Thanksgiving banquet.


Not ingrates

By Mike Huckabee

While UCLA basketball star LaVar Ball’s dad is ticking off President Trump by dismissing Trump’s rescue of his son from a possible 10-year prison term in China, there’s another former athlete from America who is also a victim of the Chinese legal system. His mom wants to let Trump know that she and her family are not ingrates and would be extremely thankful to him for any help in getting their son home.


Incredible story

By Mike Huckabee

Incredible story: a mom in Norfolk, Virginia, complained to the local school that her 9-year-old daughter was being bullied, and officials there refused to do anything. So she put a tape recorder in her daughter’s backpack to get evidence. She’s now being charged with “felony use of device to intercept oral communication” and could face up to five years in prison. So apparently, the school officials can take action when someone threatens them.


Wayne Cochran passes

By Mike Huckabee

2017 seems determined to take a lot of our musical icons with it before it comes to a close. The latest is Wayne Cochran, who’s passed away of cancer in Florida at 78. Cochran put on a wild show and was known as the “king of blue-eyed soul” and the “white James Brown.” While he never became a huge hit-maker, he was very influential: many artists covered his songs and copied his style, and even Elvis modeled his spangled concert jumpsuits after Cochran’s.


Free speech challenge in California

Another Supreme Court case to watch: the SCOTUS has agreed to hear a free speech challenge to the constitutionality of a California law that in essence forces pro-life pregnancy centers to present a commercial for state-paid abortions to everyone who comes in the door. They’re even required to present the information in a type font more than twice the size of the font mandated for Planned Parenthood abortion clinics. Proponents claim that’s to keep pro-life pregnancy centers from “misinforming” women, even though there’s no evidence that they have (there’s plenty of evidence that Planned Parenthood does, but if you try to expose that, a California judge will send you to prison.)

Similar laws have been overturned as obviously unconstitutional in other states, but the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld it (surprise!) So now, the SCOTUS will have to settle it. Let’s all hope and pray that California’s politicians will have actually done us a favor by going so far overboard with their biased pro-abortion laws that the result will be a smackdown that will reverberate nationwide.
