  • Huckabee to Voters: ‘Mess Them Up’ — Give Roy Moore Chance to Be a ‘Courageous Voice’ in the Senate

    Monday in an op-ed posted on his website, former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) endorsed former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore in the U.S. Senate special election GOP primary runoff set for September 26 in the Yellowhammer State. Moore faces Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), who was appointed earlier this year by-then Gov. Robert Bentley (R-AL). That was not something that went unnoticed by Huckabee. “I have good friends in Alabama whose support is split between Senator Luther Strange, who was ‘strangely’ appointed to the post by disgraced Governor Robert Bentley who made the appointment just as he was shown...

    By 1990, the oil-services company Rafael Cruz had founded with his wife had collapsed. Their properties had been foreclosed on; they declared bankruptcy. “We assumed the downturn was temporary and struggled through the lean times, hoping for a change that never came,” he wrote in a memoir, “A Time for Action,” released in January of this year. “We lost everything, including our home.” Mr. Cruz’s inspirational tale of fleeing Cuba and making it in America through faith and hard work has stirred crowds across the country as he campaigns on behalf of his son, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

  • Huckabee Hits Cruz For "Low-Life, Sleazy Politics"

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is criticizing Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz for what he calls "low-life, sleazy politics." Huckabee, who suspended his presidential campaign after a poor performance in Iowa, attacked Cruz's campaign for telling people on the night of the caucuses that rival Ben Carson would be dropping out of the race. "I can attest to the fact that even in our campaign there were many efforts to try and say that people shouldn't vote for me or Rick Santorum or Ben Carson," Huckabee said on his podcast this week, Buzzfeed News reported. "The Cruz people said it...

    Anyone want to help him solve this confounding mystery? Incidentally, allow me to go on record now as predicting that Huckabee will endorse Marco Rubio once he drops out. “For reasons I don’t fully understand, years and years of actually doing something and getting things done didn’t matter,” Huckabee said of the group’s deliberations. ”And I don’t understand that.”… Huckabee, according to sources, has often reminded [Tony] Perkins and his fellow influencers that a major reason he gave up his Fox News show and launched a 2016 campaign was because he expected to have their backing. Their decision to instead...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Try this one from yesterday's stack. I don't know if you people know this or not, but Al Gore has been out at the Sundance Film Festival out there in Park City, Utah. This is one of Robert Redford's big do's, and apparently Al Gore is working on a movie that -- what is the name of this movie? Oh, that's right, "An Inconvenient Truth," and the movie will document his efforts to raise alarm on the effects of global warming, and so he brought Tipper and the kids out there.

  • Dr. Oz’s ‘Magic Weight-Loss Cure’ Loses Remaining Support (green coffee bean extract)

    LiveScience ^ | October 21, 2014 12:02pm ET | Bahar Gholipour
    Green coffee bean extract, which Dr. Mehmet Oz promoted on his show as a “magic weight-loss cure,” had one scientific study backing up the extract’s purported effects. Now, that research has been retracted, the blog Retraction watch reported. Oz had to do some explaining on Capitol Hill in June, when senators asked him why he, as a surgeon and well-known doctor, promotes the use of weight-loss products that are scientifically unfounded. […] The green coffee bean manufacturer, Applied Food Sciences Inc., agreed to pay a $3.5 million settlement after the Federal Trade Commission charged the company with using the results...

    For all of the Affordable Care Act's technical problems, at least one part is working on schedule. The law is systematically dismantling the individual insurance market, as its architects intended from the start. The millions of Americans who are receiving termination notices because their current coverage does not conform to Health and Human Services Department rules may not realize this is by design. Maybe they trusted President Obama's repeated falsehood that people who liked their health plans could keep them. But Americans should understand that this month's mass cancellation wave has been the President's political goal since 2008. Liberals believe...

    Karen Tumulty's piece on Mike Huckabee today makes abundantly clear that he has little appetite to dive back into presidential politics. There was one line in particular that illustrated why a second run appears increasingly unlikely. Asked how he'd run differently in 2012, the former Arkansas governor told Tumulty: "Money — lots of it. One thing I'm certainly going to gauge over the next few months is, would there be substantial financial support. ... I don't plan to jump in a pool that has no water." Yet even though he knows he'd need more cash this time around he's done...

    Huckabee Quietly Exiting (or Ramping up for) 2012 Race? In what could potentially be a huge indication of Huckabee’s future political plans (or lack thereof), Huckabee’s presidential committee Huckabee for President, Inc has filed termination paperwork with the FEC. The report was filed with the FEC on 1/31/11 at the time other political committees were filing their usual year-end reports, and can be viewed here. On that same date, Huckabee’s team filed a regular year-end report for Huck PAC — meaning that Huckabee has made the intentional decision to continue Huck PAC operations while ceasing the operations of Huckabee for...

    American Thinker ^ | January 26, 2011 | Ed Lasky
    Barack Obama shape-shifting to a  President who displays pride in his nation and also into a "softer, gentler" man is proceeding according to the plan I speculated about in Obama 2.0: the Reinvention Begins. My column suggested he would transform himself into being a warmer, more personable President and that he would heed the advice of Democratic analyst William Galston who counseled him to articulate American exceptionalism. How am I doing so far? Has the extreme makeover meant to fool us again started? Last night's State of the Union address was heavy on atmospherics -- particularly Barack Obama's notice that...

Next came Mrs. O's push for the $5 billion expansion of federal child nutrition programs. As I first reported in February 2010, the legislation was a pet project of the Service Employees International Union, which seeks to swell the ranks of dawn-to-dusk year-round public school food service workers who organize under the progressive activist slogan "serving justice, and serving lunch." In addition to school breakfast and lunch,...

    Video: Mike Huckabee implies that Palin is an "extremist," due to her opposition to the tax bill compromise. Huckabee stated earlier that "What we got here is a (tax) bill that the extremes of both sides hate" When questioned later on whether Sarah Palin was an extremist since she opposed the bill, Huckabee said that Sarah wasn't an 'extremist' per say just occupying an extreme position. He then compares her "extreme position" on the right to that of Rep. Anthony Weiner's (D-NY) extremism on the left. Huck: ".....You've got the far left, and the far right...Anthony Weiner, for example, thinks...

    Sarah Palin may have met her political match in Mike Huckabee. Both have been criss-crossing the country on book tours. Both hold degrees in communication. Both hunt and fish. Both use various media to hit their target audiences. But while Palin often generates anger, Huckabee takes the Will Rogers road. He has an aw-shucks demeanor, freely cracking jokes, shaking hands and chatting with the media while Palin shuns reporters. Already road-tested by a 2008 White House run, Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor and Baptist minister, may just be the strongest GOP candidate to take on Palin in a primary and...
