  • Gov. Huckabee Claims There's More Freedom in North Korea than US

    Sometimes politicians speak without thinking. Former Arkansas Governor and GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee was a perfect example of this on Saturday when he bizarrely claimed that he's "beginning to think there's more freedom in North Korea sometimes than in the United States." Huckabee was speaking in Manchester, NH at AFP's Freedom Summit.

    MANCHESTER, N.H. – The Republican presidential primary is up and running in New Hampshire, where conservative prospects lined up in Manchester Saturday for the first cattle call of the 2016 cycle. Speakers at the New Hampshire Freedom Summit, which was sponsored by Citizens United and Koch-backed Americans For Prosperity, included Senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, all of whom would be top tier presidential contenders should they run. Donald Trump also spoke. Huckabee seemed especially determined to show he could compete for conservative votes against politicians like Paul and Cruz, who have each...

    North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis (R) leads a crowded Republican field for the right to face Sen. Kay Hagan (D) in November, according to a new survey conducted for a super PAC backing his campaign. Tillis scored 27 percent of the vote, compared with 16 percent for physician Greg Brannon and 10 percent for state Baptist Convention President Mark Harris. A handful of other candidates received only single-digit support.

    Ten days ago, a poll by WPA Opinion Research showed former Arkansas Gov. and 2008 Republican primary runner-up Mike Huckabee tied for the lead of the 2016 GOP race. Now, another survey, this one by Suffolk University, shows Huckabee at the front of the pack, this time in Iowa, the state that will kick off the caucus and primary process. With a field so crowded, it doesn't take a huge level of support to be at the top. In the Suffolk poll, Huckabee is the choice of 11 percent of Iowa Republicans. Sen. Rand Paul and former Florida Gov. Jeb...

    With the January 2016 Iowa presidential caucuses on the horizon, Hillary Clinton is the far-and-away favorite among self-described Democratic caucus-goers, according to a Suffolk University statewide Iowa poll. And while some Republicans have begun visiting the Hawkeye State, the survey shows no favorites among prospective GOP presidential candidates. Meanwhile, the Suffolk University poll of likely general-election Iowa voters shows Republican Gov. Terry Branstad with a strong advantage heading into the June 3 Republican gubernatorial primary, and he leads the sole Democrat in the race, State Sen. Jack Hatch, by 10 points in a general-election match-up. Branstad, the longest serving governor...

    Let’s start off with the caveat that 2016 polls at this point share something in common with John Nance Garner’s view of the Vice Presidency — “not worth a bucket of warm piss,” although it’s often used with “spit” as a euphemism. Had we taken polls seriously in early 2006, the nominees in 2008 would have been Hillary Clinton and, er … John McCain. Still, we haven’t even seen a partial roster of people actually aiming for the nod, and yet Mike Huckabee — who came in second or third in 2008, depending how one counts — seems to be...

    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...

    Mike Huckabee had asked me to send him my picture. He’d be sans entourage for our meeting at a Starbucks near Fox News’s midtown Manhattan headquarters, and he wanted to be able to pick me out of the crowd. Sure enough, at the appointed hour, he’s waving at me through the glass walls before he even makes it through the entrance. The barista line is long; since Huckabee hasn’t brought anyone to stand in it for him, coffee is forgone. “We’ll do our work,” Huckabee says with a shrug. Later, after he realizes he has been droning on, he implores,...

    Georgia's Republican Governor, Nathan Deal, seems poised to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat by strong-arming the legislature away from pushing a bill to withdraw completely from imposing Common Core education standards on the state's schools and toward implementing most of the Common Core policies this year. State Senator William Ligon (R-Brunswick) was the voice against Common Core's being forced on Georgia schools. In 2013 he led a coalition of citizens to try to pass a law that put a halt to the policies. Opposition to Common Core became so stiff that Governor Deal was forced to issue a...

Rand Paul’s comments that former President Bill Clinton was a “sexual predator.” “I personally don’t like to see us get into the personal issues of candidates because once you go down that road, it’s hard to ever put it in reverse and go back, and I’m just not sure that’s something we want to do,” Huckabee told reporters at CPAC. “Bill Clinton is not gonna be on the ballot in 2016 or 2014, it’s very possible that his...

    There are two stories here. First, you will note how Public Policy Polling reports the results of its most recent poll of most popular potential GOP candidates for president. If you click on the link and read the PPP narrative you would not realize that Sarah Palin is the choice of more Republican and unaffiliated voters of all of those mentioned. Yet they post Mike Huckabee as the choice. Just another example of how much the liberal Elite Media fears Palin. The second story is, of course that Palin has a 70% approval rating to a 20% unfavorable. Huckabee has...

Two words, my friends: Huckabee/Christie?Although Huck’s now technically the GOP frontrunner, he’s not the pol with the highest favorable rating among Republicans. That’d be Sarah Palin, who’s at 70/20 and has the highest numbers among both women and men. PPP didn’t offer her as an option in its presidential polling, presumably because they think she’s unlikely to run. Following the controversy over his ‘Uncle Sugar’ speech Mike...

    NASHVILLE (BP) -- Mike Huckabee says he won't be seeking the title of "America's pastor" if he decides to run for president in 2016. Instead, he would seek to be a servant leader who is both "salt and light" in today's culture. Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas who ran for president in 2008, said he won't make any political announcements until after the midterm elections. A busy speaker and the host of "Huckabee," the Fox News channel talk show, he said his concern for the nation's direction could be the deciding factor. "I just feel like our country is...

    Stop feeding the LMSM trolls! Keep things PRIVATE. Thou shalt not speak ill of thy fellow Republicans! (Reagan). Once again, out in public, but this time not McCain or Ayotte or Graham or Peter King, or... you name it.. we have someone giving their PUBLIC two-cents worth on Republicans primarying Republicans, some having so-called Pharisaical attitudes and so forth. When will they (and now Jeb Bush talking about Ted Cruz) get it through their heads, that they aren't helping the Republican Party by going out in public and feeding the LMSM trolls. If they have a beef with Tea Partiers,...

    I was watching Huckabee a couple weeks ago. He had some blind guy who stated he was former Army. The discussion was that the Pentagon issued an order prohibiting the wearing of the uniform in church. Has anyone heard about this? Has anyone have any information about this? I spoke with a Chaplain in the Pentagon and not only did he look at me like I just fell off the turnip truck, but he stated he never heard of such a thing. Please - no posts about watching Fox, Huckabee, whatever. If you have nothing to confirm or deny on...

    Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh may be setting up shop at new radio stations in the near future. According to a report on Politico.com, Cumulus Media is planning on dropping both talk show hosts at the end of the year. If Cumulus goes through with their plans, that means the nation’s top two conservative radio personalities would be removed from more than 40 stations. The company declined comment to the political website. "Cumulus is not in a position to comment about negotiations with talent under contract, no matter what the rumor of the day might be," a rep said. Sources...

    More serious than Watergate 'because 4 Americans did in fact die' To this day, it is not known what role President Richard Nixon played in the break-in at the Watergate Hotel, but the tape recordings from the White House confirm he and Chief of Staff H.R. Haldeman discussed using the CIA to slow down the FBI investigation. It was the cover-up, as history records, that eventually brought about Nixon’s resignation in disgrace. Now, Congress is investigating an alleged cover-up of the terrorist attack Sept. 11, 2012, on the U.S. foreign service facility in Benghazi, Libya, amid predictions from prominent voices...

    President Barack Obama will be unable to finish his second term due to the Benghazi scandal, media personality and former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee expects. The prediction came Monday during his radio show, "The Mike Huckabee Show." "I believe that before it's all over, this president will not fill out his full term. I know that puts me on a limb," he said, according to Politico. "But this is not minor. It wasn't minor when Richard Nixon lied to the American people and worked with those in his administration to cover-up what really happened in Watergate. But, I remind you...

    Ed Morrisseyflagged this Politico piece earlier but I want to pay special attention to Huck's comments. Gabe Malor called BS on them on Twitter this morning. I think he's right. Huckabee's latest shot across the party establishment's bow: “The last two presidential elections, we had more moderate candidates, so if anything a lot of conservatives went to the polls reluctantly or just didn’t go at all,” said Huckabee in a separate interview. “If all of the evangelicals had showed up, it may have made a difference.”…Huckabee, like Santorum, was a bit incredulous at the attempt to fault social conservatives when...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee tells Newsmax that President Obama won’t succeed in restarting peace talks in the Middle East because the Palestinians have “zero interest” in negotiations. The 2008 Republican presidential candidate also says the administration’s dealings with Mohammed Morsi and Egypt are “foreign policy gone wild,” and warns that the United States will be viewed as a “toothless tiger” if Obama doesn’t respond as promised to the use of chemical weapons in Syria. … “You’ve got a Palestinian government that refuses Israel’s right to exist. It’s really hard to negotiate with someone when they don’t even believe you...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has revealed to Newsmax that he is looking at a possible bid for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. Asked in a Newsmax TV interview if he is considering another White House run, Huckabee declares: “Yeah, I’m not ruling it out at this point. “I’m not sitting around having meetings with the strategic team, but it’s something I will certainly look at and I’m talking to some people just to determine whether it’s a kamikaze raid or whether it has potential and possibility.” Huckabee, who was governor of Arkansas for more than a decade up...
