    Need some help remembering: where Mike Huckabee has demonstrated his establishment thinking and his lack of understanding of conservative issues (outside of the social issues)- and where he has bought into big government solutions. I'm on a panel tomorrow about Huckabee in 2016 (I did not choose the topic) - and I need some memory jogging.
  • Mike Huckabee’s Maurice Clemmons problem

    If former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is going to run for president in 2016, his campaign is going to have to run through the Forza coffee shop in Parkland, Wash. That’s where one of Huckabee’s many parolees, Maurice Clemmons, assassinated four Lakewood police officers in 2009, depriving nine children of a parent and setting a national perception that Huckabee abused his powers of clemency. Huckabee told The New York Times’ Jonathan Martin (the other Jonathan Martin) that he views a 2016 presidential bid as “a real opportunity for me.” The Washington Post quickly called Huckabee “a long shot” because he...

    Darcus Allen, the getaway driver in the murder of four Lakewood police officers in November 2009, was sentenced Friday to 420 years in prison.The getaway driver in the murder of four Lakewood police officers was sentenced Friday to 420 years in prison. Pierce County Judge Frederick Flemming imposed the maximum possible sentence on Darcus D. Allen, a 39-year-old Arkansas native who was found guilty of first-degree murder last month for acting as the getaway driver for shooter Maurice Clemmons. Before sentencing, Allen turned to Kim Renninger, widow of slain Sgt. Mark Renninger and held his arms wide.
  • Jury finds getaway driver guilty of murder in cop killings [Lakewood, WA]

    05/20/2011 9:25:02 AM PDT · by matt1234 · 4 replies ^ | May 19, 2011 | KIRO Radio staff
    A jury in Tacoma has convicted the getaway driver in the Lakewood police killings with first-degree murder. The News Tribune reports the Pierce County jury did not find Dorcus Allen guilty of aggravated circumstances. Prosecutors charged Allen with four counts of aggravated first-degree murder in the 2009 deaths of four Lakewood police officers. Allen admits he drove Maurice Clemmons near the Forza coffee shop in the gunman's truck in November 2009. His defense argued he only drove Clemmons to a nearby car wash because Clemmons told the man he could borrow his truck that day to make some money. Clemmons...

    After weeks of keeping himself in the headlines and growing more explicit about his intentions to run for president in 2012, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee touted himself as the Republican front-runner, The Hill reports. Speaking on "Fox News Sunday," Huckabee attempted to remain elusive about his presidential ambitions, but showed he is closely watching his poll numbers. "I end up leading a lot of the polls," Huckabee said. "I'm the Republican that clearly at this point does better against Obama than any other Republican." About his presidential run, Huckabee added: "I haven't closed the door. I think that would...
  • Oh, Yes, the Huckster is Running (Vanity Fair profile)

    Oh, Yes, the Huckster is Running And he gets a tongue-bath to start the campaign. Sorry for the graphic imagery first thing in the morning, but there's nothing else to call this profile in the New Yorker. Read it for yourself, but here are the takeaways. First, he's running in 2012. Evidence? He just bought a house in Florida and he's lining up 8,000 word "Meet the Candidate" pieces in the New Yorker that cast him as "the wayward Republican" "best hope" for the GOP. Don't be a fool. Second, most importantly for consideration when it comes to your primary...

    Seattle Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 10 December, 2009 | Dave Workman
    It would be conveniently tidy for the story of last month’s Parkland police massacre to begin and end with recently-departed cop killer Maurice Clemmons; tidy for social apologists who never seem to run out of excuses for people like Clemmons, and tidy for people left in his wake. This is not a tidy world. If it were, Clemmons would still be in an Arkansas prison and the four police officers he gunned down would be looking forward to the holidays with their families. Clemmons, it is now evident, represents the tip of an iceberg that encompasses several relatives and some...

    The nation was stunned by the senseless and savage cold-blooded murders of four young police officers in Lakewood, Wash., over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Whenever a police officer or soldier is killed, the loss is even more profound, for they are the ones who stand between our way of life and total anarchy. Nine years ago, the name Maurice Clemmons crossed my desk. I commuted his sentence from 108 years to 47 years. I take full responsibility for my actions of nine years ago. I acted on the facts presented to me in 2000. If I could have possibly known...

    The facts tell a completely different story from the fable that Huckabee is propagating. Clemmons committed much more than one burglary and one robbery. Also, Clemmons was 17 years old, not 16, as Huckabee claims.

    The Mike Huckabee body count continues to rise. During his 10 years as Arkansas governor, Huckabee commuted the sentences of 1,033 convicted criminals. He knowingly released more than a few rapists and murderers and sometimes mocked or attacked prosecutors who pleaded with him to keep violent offenders behind bars. While Huckabee was governor, the parole board released convicted rapist Wayne Dumont. Huckabee had publicly argued for Dumont's release, and parole board members said he pressured them to let the rapist out. Eleven months after his release, Dumont raped and killed a woman. In 2000, Huckabee granted clemency to Maurice Clemmons,...

    Mike Huckabee had zero to do with the deaths this past week of four Seattle police officers. Radio hosts and bloggers who attempt to imply anything to the contrary are dishonest. Any who attempt to make political hay with it are actually "pundits who are not to be trusted." As one who clearly understands the election cycles of American politics can explain to you, making predictions three years before the next election is really silly. I was driving home one afternoon this past week sometime after 6pm EST and heard a fill-in host on a nationally syndicated talk show self-identifying...

    Here is video of former Arkansas Mike Huckabee defending his decision to grant clemency to Maurice Clemmons in 2000. Clemmons killed four police officers in the Tacoma, Washington area last weekend, and was subsequently shot and killed by police as they tried to apprehend him. Huckabee said Clemmons had committed robbery and burglary as a 16 year-old, and received a sentence of 108 years. After serving 11 years, Huckabee got the file and decided to commute the sentence to 47 years, which made him parole eligible. The parole board then let him go. Huckabee said if he had that file...

    There were also three separate courtroom incidents in 1990 where Clemmons tried to use a weapon against a judge, threw a padlock at a bailiff, and tried to take a guard's pistol. A judge ordered Clemmons be placed in leg shackles because he felt Clemmons threatened him.

    Dear Mayor, I am writing this letter on behalf of the Lakewood police officer shooting incident. I am asking for you to sequester Judge John McCarthy and Thomas Felnagle, review their past cases, see that they personally apologize to the families of the police officers and publicly state what there reasons for setting such a low bail amount after knowing Maurice Clemmons countless criminal history. John McCarthy and Thomas Felnagle’s poor judgment call directly resulted in the death of four of Seattle’s Police officers. Nothing they can do can bring back the husbands, the wife the sons, the daughter, the...

    Last April, a Department of Corrections officer was watching a television news story about a series of armed robberies around Puget Sound when he saw a Pierce County Crime Stoppers sketch that bore a striking similarity to a man he'd once monitored — Maurice Clemmons. The officer passed on the tip to Clemmons' current supervising officer, who called Crime Stoppers. Yet, somehow, the tip didn't filter down to all the detectives working the cases. A Crime Stoppers operator told the officer that they had "received too many tips/leads already," according to the second DOC officer's notes. Crime Stoppers "refused to...
