    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) in a tweet Tuesday compared President Trump to British leader Winston Churchill. Huckabee said he had just been to see the film “The Darkest Hour,” which dramatizes Churchill's experiences as prime minister during World War II, calling it a reminder of “what real leadership looks like.” “Churchill was hated by his own party, opposition party, and press. Feared by King as reckless, and despised for his bluntness,” Huckabee tweeted. “But unlike Neville Chamberlain, he didn't retreat. We had a Chamberlain for 8 yrs; in @realDonaldTrump we have a Churchill.”

    RUSH: Mike Huckabee, he and his daughter went on The View yesterday. Did you know this? Why? Why do our people go on these shows and be insulted? Joy Behar, who’s, what, 84 now? (interruption) Me? No. Joy Behar looked at Mike Huckabee, and she said, “Let’s not pretend that Trump hasn’t said some horrible things about women. Let’s not pretend.” And of course Huckabee’s nodding and so forth and the audience of these crazy left-wingers is going nuts. And then she says, “How can you, how can you have your daughter, how can you send your daughter to defend...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Friday called for the repeal of the 17th Amendment and the return to senators selected by state legislatures after the Senate GOP's effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare died in a late-night vote. The 17th Amendment was ratified in 1913 and established the popular election of senators. Previously, senators were elected by state legislatures. @GovMikeHuckabee Time to repeal 17th Amendment. Founders had it right-Senators chosen by state legislatures. Will work for their states and respect 10th amid The Senate's "skinny repeal" of ObamaCare failed late Thursday night by a vote of 51-49.

  • Trump looking to Sarah Huckabee Sanders in tough moments

    AP via Yahoo ^ | March 12, 2017 | Catherine Lucey and Ken Thomas
    Faced with aggressive on-air questioning about the president's wiretapping claims, Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn't flinch, she went folksy. Speaking to George Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America," she pulled out a version of an old line from President Lyndon Johnson: "If the president walked across the Potomac, the media would be reporting that he could not swim." The 34-year-old spokeswoman for President Donald Trump was schooled in hardscrabble politics — and down-home rhetoric — from a young age by her father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Her way with a zinger — and her unshakable loyalty to an often unpredictable boss...
  • Mike Huckabee will be ambassador to Israel, move embassy to Jerusalem [false rumor?]

    Mike Huckabee is headed back to the Holy Land. The two-time White House hopeful, former Fox New Channel weekend host and former governor of Arkansas will be America's next ambassador to Israel, a presidential transition official confirmed to DailyMail.com on Friday. He is scheduled to meet with President-Elect Donald Trump Friday at 2:00 p.m. Huckabee, an ordained Baptist preacher and electric bass player, will become the tip of Trump's spear as he seeks to shake up U.S. foreign relations in the Middle East, beginning with relocating America's embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. 'That's going to happen,' the...

    As NewsBuster Geoffrey Dickens has noted, Ben Affleck appeared on yesterday evening's edition of Hardball. And while it's true that the actor/director/Dem activist offered a generally innocuous analysis, he did manage to engage in a bit of religious bigotry. Affleck's foul foray arose in the course of his discussion of the way the various Republican candidates have dealt with the issue of evolution and creationism. Talk turned to the former governor of Arkansas. BEN AFFLECK: I think Huckabee actually framed his position in a much less dramatic way than had been made out. Which was he said it could...

    Should Cruz, Kasich, Carly Fiorina, Jeb Bush, Lindsey Graham or any of the others not own up to their nationally televised promise to support the GOP nominee whoever it was, they most certainly should not get near the stage at the RNC. And we all should remember that they would have expected us to support them had they been the nominee, but in a crucial moment for America, they decided to help Obama have a third term by helping Clinton. Donald Trump met with Senator Cruz in Washington on Thursday and reportedly offered him a speaking slot at the convention....

    I’ve been in New York this morning to attend a meeting organized by Dr. Ben Carson and others who invited Donald J. Trump to speak to evangelical Christian leaders from across the country. Governor Mike Huckabee was moderator and Mr. Trump answered questions on a wide range of issues. Dr. James Dobson asked the first question–he asked Mr. Trump what he would do concerning religious liberty issues. Mr. Trump said the number one thing he could do for religious liberty would be to appoint great Supreme Court justices and he reminded everyone that the next president could appoint up to...

    Did you ever wonder why unsuccessful candidates merely “suspend” their campaigns after losing a key primary, instead of terminating them? Surely all those candidates knew that it’s impossible to restart a presidential campaign once it’s been suspended. In the famous words of Theodore Roosevelt’s daughter Alice Longworth, “You can’t make a soufflé rise twice.”

    Mike Huckabee on Thursday ripped Mitt Romney for calling on Donald Trump to release his taxes, accusing the 2012 GOP nominee of trying to "sink" the party's current presumptive presidential nominee. "I supported Romney, just as I will Trump, despite having serious differences with both," Huckabee wrote on his website, adding that he was "especially disappointed" in Romney over the issue. "He’s not only trying to sink his own party’s presumptive nominee, but he’s factually incorrect and he’s making the same unfair attack on Trump that was launched against him in 2012," he wrote. Romney has been calling on Trump...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | 04/25/2016 | Jim Hoft
    On Sunday Ted Cruz and John Kasich joined forces to deny Donald Trump enough delegates to win the Republican nomination. Both of the contenders are coordinating efforts to stop Donald Trump. Neither one can do it separately so they're hoping they’ll be able to do it together. That way they can force a contested convention and rip apart the Republican Party. Tonight former Governor Mike Huckabee weighed in on this new tactic. Cruz, Kasich join forces to stop Trump. I wish they wanted to stop Hillary and much as they did the Republican who is beating both of them.

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Trump’s one-time rival in the presidential campaign, discussed the topic on the radio Thursday with Fox News host Brian Kilmeade — and offered a ringing defense for the campaign manager. Kilmeade began the segment by stating that Lewandowski had been arrested, when he was abruptly cut off by Huckabee proclaiming, “Whoa, whoa, whoa, he was not arrested.” “That has been said, he was not arrested,” Huckabee continued. “He was charged and he walked himself in. There was no ‘arrest,’ no perp walk, no handcuffs, no mugshot.”

    Dragging families into a heated campaign is "disgusting," Mike Huckabee said, calling Saturday for a truce between the two men leading the GOP field. . . . Huckabee suggested that the billionaire businessman and Texas senator have a phone conversation in an attempt to patch things up. "You know, Vito Corlioni sitting down with Philip Tattaglia and saying, 'there's got to be a truce' because this goes nowhere that helps anybody and it's really, really horrible," Huckabee said, referencing rival crime bosses in the gangster movie "The Godfather."

    One pastor in Iowa recently suggested that despite, or rather, because of the bitter rancor among Evangelical Christians over Donald Trump that one particular running mate could persuade naysayers to actually support Trump. Who is this Hawkeye pastor and why should anyone care about his opinion? In 2012, conservative commentator, Iowan Steve Deace, a #NeverTrump and Cruz supporter, identified the most effective “super-operatives” in Iowan politics. One, he wrote was an “unassuming pastor” of Walnut Creek Church, who “could very well be the most powerful man you’ve never heard of.” “He could easily mean the difference between victory and defeat...

Those who have followed politics in the last 8+ years suspected the 2016 race would inevitably boil down to Globalists -vs- U.S. Nationalists.

But Hillary insists it was a spontaneous reaction to an internet video." This is clever. This joke is simple and yet you didn’t think of it, now did ya? Obviously Huckabee is referring to Hillary’s depiction of the attack on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi that left four Americans dead, while also talking about the rally Trump had to cancel in Chicago this past Friday due to Leftists gone crazy....

    I wonder if any surprise guests will show up to endorse him. I have great respect for Governor Mike Huckabee and we have a mutual admiration for our wonderful families. It is great to have his daughter, Sarah, join the campaign, Trump said in a statement. What makes Mr. Trump my choice for president is he will break the grip of the donor class on our government and make it accountable to working families again, said [Sarah Huckabee] Sanders, who is joining Trumps team as a senior advisor. Huckabee endorsing Trump now makes sense. He was probably torn between Trump,...
