Donald J. Trump told the Marines of Helicopter Squadron One exactly what it means to him to be able to ride in the presidential helicopter - and the Marines had something very special to give him in return.
Join me tonight on TBN for “Huckabee!” My guests will include Laura Scroff, author of the international best-seller “An Invisible Thread,” to talk about her inspiring new book, “Angels On Earth.” I’ll introduce you to the two most unlikely friends you can imagine, with an amazing story of forgiveness and redemption.

Your tax dollars at work: the New York Court of Appeals has officially ruled that being called “a real dummy” by President Trump in a tweet is not actionable defamation. And if you spend a fortune on lawyers trying to prove that it is, well…what does that make you? Just try to think of it as an honor, like being called a dummy by Don Rickles.
Swiss-based Viking Cruises’ plans to put river cruise ships along the Mississippi have been scuttled, along with all the tourism jobs they would have created. You can thank your friendly federal government and a pointless law requiring that all ships ferrying passengers between ports in the US must be American-built and operated by Americans. It’s been around since the Grover Cleveland Administration in 1886, and it’s still stifling growth and killing jobs in 2017. To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, there’s nothing so permanent as an outdated federal law.
Oddly enough, it was actually not Trump but Sen. Elizabeth Warren who inadvertently lodged an explicit sexual innuendo at her colleague in trying to defend her by using a feminist term that I should warn you is not family-friendly. I think this is a perfect example of “get your mind out of the gutter” thinking.
Well, it’s only taken 34 years, and waiting their turn behind such towering rock music pioneers as Tupac Shakur and the Beastie Boys, but the Moody Blues have finally been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Also, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, who pretty much invented rock and roll in the ‘30s and ‘40s, finally got inducted as an “early influence.” It’s said that thousands of people are rushing to Wikipedia to find out who she is. Do yourself a favor and find out on YouTube. You’ll be stunned that there wasn’t a shrine to her in there on day one. The rest of the inductees are at the link. Why, no, they still don’t include Yes, Jethro Tull, the Doobie Brothers or the Monkees. Maybe in year 35…
