The message you have just received was delivered by Mike Huckabee and includes a message from Huck PAC, his political action committee. 


Congratulations to the hugely influential Dr. James Dobson on celebrating 40 years in broadcasting. I know him to be one of the first to realize that silence on moral and political issues would allow cultural and family values to crumble into sand and drift away.

Remember the 1970s? The "Me Generation"? Divorce and "open marriage"? Legalized abortion? The coining of the term "latchkey children"? Dr. Dobson saw a crying need, left academia in 1977 and opened a two-room office to form what would later become a worldwide ministry called Focus On The Family. You may have heard of it.

And in case you missed these stories:  

Trump Helps Veterans

Thursday, President Trump signed an executive order to protect whistleblowers in the Veterans Administration and to make it easier to discipline incompetent employees and reward good ones. Trump called it a "historic" step toward ending sub-standard care for veterans, but vowed that it was only the start. A task force to eliminate waste, fraud and abuse at the VA is being formed, and a bill to make it easier to fire incompetent VA staffers has passed the House but is still stalled in the Senate.

At the signing, Trump said, "Our veterans have secured this nation with their blood, sweat and tears, and we will not let them down. These are our great, great people. We will always stand with those who stood for freedom and who stood for us. They protected us. They've made it all possible, and now we're going to protect and take care of them."

Amen to that. For many Trump voters, protecting the Supreme Court from swinging to the left was their primary motivation, with jobs and Obamacare repeal also ranking high. But for me personally, the most important thing I was hoping to see from a Trump Administration was that he keep his promise to clean up the VA. Some VA outposts had become like bad inner city public schools, where protecting the jobs of incompetent teachers was more important than the stated mission of helping the students. In both cases, Trump is taking long-overdue action to shift the emphasis away from the protecting the bureaucracy and back where it belongs: to the people the system was created to help.

Our veterans put their lives and their limbs on the line to protect us. When they come home, they deserve the very best medical care possible. We owe them that. I'm heartened to see that that's one thing our deal-making President believes is non-negotiable.

Trump Looking For A Fair Deal

By Mike Huckabee

I keep wondering if President Trump's critics will ever learn to hold their fire over his comments until they find out what's really going on. Case in point: this week, Trump talked about pulling out of NAFTA, the free trade agreement with Canada and Mexico. That set off an immediate firestorm among free trade conservatives, howling that he was going to spark a trade war and a recession, and cause prices of milk, lumber and other products to skyrocket. He was called a protectionist, an economic ignoramus, etc. etc. Then, just hours later, as the Tweet storm raged on, Trump announced that the leaders of Canada and Mexico had called him and offered to renegotiate NAFTA to get better terms for all sides. So now, he's "going to give renegotiation a good, strong shot" -- although he still might pull out if the terms aren't to his liking.

His critics' mistake was in assuming that when Trump said, "I'm thinking of pulling out of NAFTA," that meant he was actually thinking of pulling out of NAFTA. I believe a more accurate translation would be "I don't like this deal, so I'm throwing out the most extreme nuclear option as an opening gambit to spook our trading partners into coming to the table to hammer out something I like better." And that appears to be working, with the continuing possibility of pulling out being held as leverage to secure the best terms.

Americans would suffer fewer earaches if Trump's critics could just figure out that this is his way of making deals and hold off on the screaming for a few hours. Say, maybe he could write a book explaining how he makes deals! Oh wait, he already did…30 years ago.
