Today's Commentary:  Planned Parenthood Funding -- Hillary Reminds Us Why She Lost -- Liberal Militia Forms


Federal funding for Planned Parenthood in a "Republican" spending bill? How is this possible? And, more importantly, what can be done about it?

President Trump offered his own explanation for the various inadequacies of this bill in the form of a Tweet: "The reason for the plan negotiated between the Republicans and Democrats is that we need 60 votes in the Senate which are not there! We...either elect more Republican senators in 2018 or change the rules to 51%. Our country needs a good 'shutdown' in September to fix the mess."

The battle lines over abortion have been drawn sharply, with the Democrats digging in to preserve every possible protection for their holy sacrament of even very late-stage terminations (of life), that they make a government "shutdown" virtually inevitable. Of course, they'll actually welcome that "shutdown" because they can then blame Republicans for not compromising, when they themselves are absolutely unbending. "Shutdowns" –- I use the quotation marks because only about one-fifth of the government actually stops working during one –- are treated to such a hysterical reaction in the media that voters lose confidence in their leadership. Trump is right to remind us that we could actually benefit from one, if it comes to that. Voters need to see this as part of the negotiating process.

Just as "appeasement" isn't the basis for a good foreign policy, it's also not the way to deal with Democrats. While they detest the idea of a wall on our border, they put up one of their own to deal with Republicans. Funding for Planned Parenthood is on their side of that wall, receiving protection at all costs. To borrow a phrase from Ronald Reagan, I'd like to say, "Democrats, tear down that wall!" But they never will unless there are severe political consequences to their rigid stance.

The bill is up for a vote this week, and reconciliation is still possible. If that doesn't happen, keep in mind that technically it's a stopgap that was necessary because Democrats never did pass a budget. The crucial battle –- over what is usually the first budget passed by a new administration –- will take place later in the year. In the meantime, moderate Republicans in both House and Senate need to remember that if they don't lay down the law –- literally –- they will likely face severe political consequences of their own. If that happens, the next budget they pass could be their last for a long time.

Hillary Reminds Us Why She Lost

By Mike Huckabee

Hillary Clinton reminded us of why she wasn't elected by arguing that the key to bringing jobs back to America is for the government to help bring better cell phone coverage/broadband Internet to rural areas. Also, more tax money "invested" in the solar power industry, or else China will "eat our lunch in the solar market."

The last Administration that she was a part of lost over half a billion dollars of our money co-signing loans for their cronies at the solar panel company Solyndra, which built itself a palatial headquarters, then promptly went out of business because it failed to foresee dropping silicon prices and couldn't compete with Chinese solar panel companies. And that was just one of many "green energy," crony capitalism money sinks that never paid off. Hillary still has yet to learn the lesson of the Obama economy: if you want to create private sector jobs, the government doesn't need to "partner" with the private sector, it needs to get the heck out of the private sector's way. Government is the economy's referee, it's not the quarterback.

Come to think of it, the Obama Administration not only proved that government shouldn't be trying to pick winners and losers in the marketplace with our money, it also proved that it couldn't even make a lunch that anyone would eat.


Liberal Militia Forms (Yes you read that right)

By Mike Huckabee

Remember Steve Martin's old bit, where he did a joke that only the plumbers in the audience would understand? Well, here's something just for gun owners (I figure that's a much higher percentage of my audience than Steve Martin had plumbers.)

A handful of liberals suddenly discovered the Second Amendment and ran out to buy guns because their own campaign propaganda scared them into thinking Trump was going to take away their rights. Or else it was a PR stunt to try to intimidate pro-Trump rally attendees. After serious gun owners laughed at them, a "liberal militia" in Arizona made the mistake of trying to prove they actually knew how to use their firearms by releasing a video of them on a firing range. All it proves is that the only kind of shooting they understand is shooting their mouths off. They are very lucky that they at least know which end of the gun the bullets come out of. It's hilarious until you remember that these are the people who think they should be making guns laws for the rest of us.

Say, here's an idea: maybe they should join the NRA and avail themselves of some of their excellent gun safety training materials for children.
