  • A Man Contracted a Rare, Fatal Disease From Eating Squirrel Brains

    According to a recently-uncovered medical case from 2015, one man may have died after eating one too many squirrels. His penchant for squirrel meat seems to have inadvertently exposed him to an incredibly rare fatal brain disorder, the first time this disorder was ever contracted in the United States. Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease is a rare brain disorder caused by misfolding brain proteins called prions. Prion proteins are unique in that when one is misfolded, it causes other prion proteins to misfold too. These misfolded proteins are unable to function properly, and the result is that the victim suffers from memory loss,...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Friday lashed out at CNN reporter Jim Acosta after he had a tense exchange with Huckabee's daughter, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, the day before. Huckabee targeted Acosta, who has been at the center of a firestorm over President Trump and the press, in a series of tweets after he and Sanders engaged in a heated back-and-forth over the president’s repeated attacks on the press during Thursday's White House press briefing. The former governor referred to the reporter as a “BUG” in one tweet and his daughter as “the WINDSHIELD” and in...

    A top conservative leader criticized former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) for tweeting out a picture of gang members, saying they were House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) “campaign committee.” Bob Vander Plaats, the president and CEO of Iowan conservative group The Family Leader, chastised the former governor on Saturday. “Where did my friend and pastor @GovMikeHuckabee go?” Vander Plaats tweeted. “I want him back. I’ll assume someone hijacked his twitter account.” “He’s way better than this!” He added. Vander Plaats was responding to a tweet from Huckabee on Saturday appearing to link Pelosi with gang members. “Nancy Pelosi introduces...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Saturday tweeted a picture that has typically been used online to depict gang members, saying they are House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) “campaign committee for the take back of the House.” “Nancy Pelosi introduces her campaign committee for the take back of the House,” he tweeted with a picture of a group of tattooed men holding up gang signs. Huckabee’s tweet comes during a heated debate about immigration, as House leaders last week postponed a vote on a broad immigration bill, acknowledging they did not have the votes. Pelosi on Thursday said...

    Full title: Huckabee: Hillary campaigning for Democrats 'is like Jeffrey Dahmer do the ribbon cutting at a restaurant opening'Mike Huckabee joked Thursday that having Hillary Clinton campaign for Democratic candidates is like “having Jeffrey Dahmer do the ribbon cutting at a restaurant opening,” during an appearance on Fox News Thursday. “Some people can’t let go ... it’s just that simple,” Huckabee said of Clinton on Fox's “Outnumbered” after the show mentioned Clinton joking on Tuesday that “Fox News is always trying to impeach me.” Clinton was referring to recent GOP ads that show her as a way of firing up...

    One of country music’s most powerful executives, says gun-toting, Bible-clinging fans like former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are no longer welcome. The controversy started when the Country Music Association triggered a massive outbreak of microaggressions after they appointed Huckabee to the board of its charitable foundation. Huckabee has been a longtime supporter of music education so his appointment to a charitable board that supports music programs for young people was a perfect fit. However, a mob of social justice warriors, led by openly gay country music executive Jason Owen, protested – calling Huckabee’s appointment “grossly offensive” and “heartbreaking.” “This man...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has resigned from the board for the Country Music Association Foundation, one day after he was appointed the position. Within 24 hours, Huckabee's appointment faced harsh criticism with a prominent artist manager sending a letter to the foundation calling Huckabee's election 'grossly offensive' due to his political opinions and associations with the National Rifle Association. 'Huckabee speaks of the sort of things that would suggest my family is morally beneath his and uses language that has a profoundly negative impact upon young people all across this country,' Owen wrote. Owen and his husband have...

    To the CMA Foundation Board From Mike Huckabee March 1, 2018 Dear Board Members: I hereby tender my resignation effective immediately. I hope this will end the unnecessary distraction and deterrent to the core mission of the Foundation which is to help kids acquire musical instruments and have an opportunity to participate in music programs as students. Since I will not be able to continue in what I had hoped to be useful service in this endeavor, I wanted to at least put some things on the record. I have no expectation that it will change the irrational vitriol directed...

    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.

    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 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.”
