OUR NEW POLL:  Should President Trump stop making personal condolence calls to Gold Star families?

VOTE HERE

------------------------------------

Former President Jimmy Carter gave a wide-ranging interview to the New York Times that must have made that paper’s editors sorry they talked to him. Carter told the Times that the media have been harder on Trump than any other President in his experience and feel free to call him names like “mentally deranged” without hesitation. He shot down the Russian collusion narrative, saying, “I don’t think there’s any evidence that what the Russians did changed enough votes – or any votes.” He further noted that the media’s favorite President ever-ever-ever, Barack Obama, “made some very wonderful statements, in my opinion, when he first got in office, and then he reneged on that.”

It proves once again that no matter what you think of how well he did as President, Jimmy Carter is one of a sadly rare breed of politicians who place honesty above partisanship. That probably isn’t enough to win him the job he offered to take as Trump’s peace emissary to North Korea (previous Democratic Presidents have given away enough to North Korea already), but it’s still something worth celebrating in this age when people in positions of responsibility in politics go around trash-talking the President like surly teenagers after drinking their first beer.

Sincerely,

Mike Huckabee

The Brainwashed

By Mike Huckabee

Campus Reform surveyed college students about President Trump’s tax reform plan and made an interesting discovery. When they were told it was Trump’s plan, the students reacted with negativity and sarcasm and denounced it with the standard leftwing tropes such as “tax breaks for the rich.” But when they were told it was Bernie Sanders’ plan, they loved it.

This helps illustrate how young, naïve students have been brainwashed into embracing an unthinking leftwing mindset without really knowing the facts. Now, let’s try the same experiment on reporters, Congress members and adult Hollywood celebrities, and see if we can figure out why we'll probably get the same results.

Trump to release JFK documents

By Mike Huckabee

Saturday, President Trump tweeted that he plans to allow the long-scheduled release of 3100 long-classified documents relating to the JFK assassination and investigation, mostly from the ‘60s and ‘70s. President Bush signed a bill in 1992 allowing for them to be released in 25 years, unless the current President blocked them. It’s assumed that after that many years, releasing them won’t reveal any national security secrets, and the hope was that it would help quell the endless conspiracy theories. Of course, that shows that the government doesn’t understand how conspiracy theories work. Any evidence that disproves the theory is dismissed as “fake news” created by the conspirators.

Ironically, it’s assumed that Trump tweeted his intentions to release the documents after Politico ran a story on Friday, claiming he was likely to block them. Real fake news!

A new book

By Mike Huckabee

If you really believe that every problem facing humanity can be solved by creating a government program, then there’s a new book you might want to pick up: “I’m from the Government and I’m Here to Kill You: The True Human Cost of Official Negligence” by David T. Hardy. Click the link to read more. It will help you understand why Ronald Reagan said that “I’m from the government and I’m here to help you” was one of the three biggest lies of all time.

Tom Hanks' two word solution

By Mike Huckabee

There seem to be precious few celebrities in Hollywood these days who have anything to say about the current political scene that’s worth taking seriously. But Tom Hanks is a rare exception. He gave some of his more hysterical colleagues more wisdom in just two words than most of them can express in an entire Vanity Fair interview.

    Even a broken clock is right twice a day, so it's not surprising that Jimmy Carter (the second-worst President in my lifetime) occasionally exhibits a spark of wisdom. The rest of the time, he seems deep into his dotage. I'm thinking not only of his past anti-Israeli remarks, but his astonishing assertion that opposition to Obamacare was fueled by prejudice against Obama's part-African ancestry. As a retired physician, I'm appalled by such a simplistic and wrong defense of the usurpation of health care--about 20% of the national economy--by bureaucrats, Big Pharma, Big Insurance, et al. Your doctor has been repurposed as a generic "provider", instead of your confidante and healer.

    Jimmy Carter shows class. Of course, I am waiting for a msm view of the article that will surely tell me that, in reality he is saying Trump is dividing the country. Well, perhaps msm won't bother reporting on the interview, as it doesn't seem to follow their agenda.
