Robin,

Pundits and statisticians are still combing over 2016 for countless listicles, but here's a sobering fact that shouldn't get lost in the crowd: last year in the United States, 135 police officers were killed in the line of duty. That's a 10% increase from 2015, and the highest number of police fatalities in five years. While many were accidental, the leading cause of officer casualties was being shot to death.

Those who are advancing themselves by fomenting hatred and violence against the police may try to deny any blame, but it's not just the blood of the officers that's on their hands. In emboldening those who would attack police officers and making their job even more dangerous, they've forced some police departments to reduce their presence in heavily minority neighborhoods. That's led to more crimes committed against the residents. Was that really the goal or just a horrific unintended side effect of an ill-conceived movement?

Sincerely,

Mike Huckabee

The Hits Keep Coming

By Mike Huckabee

And President Obama's executive orders just keep coming. In his latest flurry of last-minute actions, Obama designated several vast areas of land in the West as national monuments to put them off-limits to energy development (this also could cause legal problems for campers, ranchers and other local residents.)

The most controversial is in southwest Utah, where he declared a staggering 1.35 million acres of land to be "Bears Ears National Monument." The state is already planning a lawsuit, and Utah Sen. Mike Lee calls it an outrageous federal land grab and vows to lead the fight to reverse it. Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz notes that there was already a long-negotiated bipartisan compromise deal in the works to protect Bears Ears. He accused Obama of making a "midnight proclamation" that upended the process. One thing we all should have learned by now is that Obama looks at state governments the same way he looks at Congress: not as separate, sovereign governing bodies with constitutional powers of their own, but as a minor nuisance that can be safely dispensed with by using his pen and phone.

Help Rev. Brunson

By Mike Huckabee

As an apparently ISIS-inspired terrorist was mowing down scores of people in an Istanbul nightclub on New Year's Eve while shouting "Allahu Akbar," a Turkish court was showing an almost surreal concept of "terrorism" by denying the appeal of a North Carolina pastor and longtime missionary, imprisoned on bogus terrorism charges. His real crime appears to be his Christian faith. Over 143,000 people have signed the American Center for Law and Justice's petition to free the Rev. Andrew Brunson. That will now require an iffy appeal to a higher court. The ACLJ hopes that shining an international spotlight on this outrage will help.
