Today, immigration reform by the numbers… President Obama is aggressively implementing his agenda, like amnesty for illegal immigrants, and vetoing measures that Republicans were elected to pass. He justifies this by claiming that a majority of Americans didn’t vote for Republicans. That’s true. But at the risk of forcing this Administration to do math, it’s also true that Obama was reelected with only 65 million votes. Sounds pretty decisive, but hey, it’s only about 45 percent of all registered voters. And only about 20 percent – or one in five – of all Americans. So how can we tell what people who don’t vote are thinking? The only way is by polling. A new Gallup poll found that the number of Americans who think that the nation needs more immigration is holding steady from last year at a whopping 7 percent. Why do Republican leaders seem so terrified of opposing an Obama policy that’s supported by only 7 percent of Americans? Maybe they think that 7 percent all work for the media.

President Obama continues to prove that he places partisan politics above the interests of the American people. By vetoing the bipartisan Keystone XL pipeline legislation, despite more than six years of administration reviews, the President has chosen to stand in the way of a project that would create thousands of jobs for American workers and promote North American energy security.

The US State Department released a travel warning for Israel on Thursday. What??? I’m in Israel right now and things are much calmer than in Chicago where the homicide rate is 10 times that of Israel. Maybe instead of trying to discourage Americans to visit Israel, the Obama Administration should warn citizens to stay out of his hometown, Rahm Emmanuel’s Chicago. And add to that list New Orleans and Detroit, where the homicide rate in those 2 American cities is 30 times that of Israel. Do you think the travel warning to Israel might have anything to do with the Obama people trying to prevent the Israeli Prime Minister from speaking to Congress and the American people about the threat of Iran, or is it because of their attempt to influence the elections in Israel? Or is it the same flawed and foolish reasoning that leads President Obama to warn of the Crusaders of 1000 years ago, but not take as a serious threat Islamic Jihadis who behead journalists and relief workers and burn people alive in the name of Islam?”

As European leaders continue to insist that Jews are safe there, each day’s news leaves them looking increasingly clueless. The latest example comes from Sweden, where the national public radio station had to apologize after an interviewer asked the Israeli ambassador if Jews themselves were responsible for the rise of anti-Semitism. The shocked ambassador replied that he rejected that question. The brain-dead interviewer asked, “Why?” Well, he could ask Radio Shalom, the Jewish radio station in Denmark. Of course, they might not answer, since they were forced to shut down temporarily for the first time in history, after being warned that it might be dangerous to broadcast Jewish programming after the Copenhagen attacks. Did they bring that on themselves, too?

While in Israel, I've been struck by the children’s awareness of Israel’s historical connection to God. It reminded me how few of America's kids appreciate the crucial role of God in US history.

America welcomes the tired, the poor, the huddled masses. But are we also welcoming terrorists?... A lot of innocent people are trying to flee the violence in Syria. Over the next two years, the Obama Administration plans to allow several thousand more to relocate to America permanently. But some Congressional Republicans are concerned. Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mike McCaul says it’s a “huge mistake” to allow thousands of refugees from Syria into the US, when ISIS is openly trying to recruit terrorists inside America’s borders. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki insisted that all Syrian refugees will go through a long, intense vetting process by multiple agencies, to insure they’re not a threat. America does have a tradition of welcoming refugees. The question is, how wide will we be expected to open this door? Since 2011, the US has let in over 500 Syrian refugees. We plan to let in a few thousand more. Know how many Syrians have already fled or want to? About eleven million.

A friend reminded me of something I had written in Foreign Affairs magazine back in 2008:



"A more successful U.S. foreign policy needs to better explain Islamic jihadism to the American people. Given how Americans have thrived on diversity -- religious, ethnic, racial -- it takes an enormous leap of imagination to understand what Islamic terrorists are about, that they really do want to kill every last one of us and destroy civilization as we know it. If they are willing to kill their own children by letting them detonate suicide bombs, then they will also be willing to kill our children for their misguided cause. The Bush administration has never adequately explained the theology and ideology behind Islamic terrorism or convinced us of its ruthless fanaticism. The first rule of war is "know your enemy," and most Americans do not know theirs. To grasp the magnitude of the threat, we first have to understand what makes Islamic terrorists tick. Very few Americans are familiar with the writings of Sayyid Qutb, the Egyptian radical executed in 1966, or the Muslim Brotherhood, whose call to active jihad influenced Osama bin Laden and the rise of al Qaeda. Qutb raged against the decadence and sin he saw around him and sought to restore the "pure" Islam of the seventh century through a theocratic caliphate without national borders. He saw nothing decadent or sinful in murdering in order to achieve that end. America's culture of life stands in stark contrast to the jihadists' culture of death."

Here’s a Valentine’s Day happy ending story from my neck of the woods, but one that took a while to end. Renate Stumpft of Fort Smith, Arkansas, was divorced from Louis Demetriades, who now lives in Tennessee. But they rekindled their friendship after he helped her contact one of their children. She was shocked when she came to work at Wal-Mart last weekend to find Louis holding a sign that read, “Happy Valentine’s Day! Will you marry me?” She said yes, and they’re getting remarried. Renate explained that Louis has changed for the better since their divorce. He’s certainly had enough time. They’re both 75 now. They’ve been divorced for 43 years. Hey, it’s never too late for a second chance at love.

Gov. Huckabee responding to critics who have branded him “Islamophobic:



“It’s pretty radical when you cut people’s heads off. It’s pretty radical when you burn people alive. If that’s not radical, I don’t know what is. So, am I against that? Good God, yes. I hope everybody is – and if that’s Islamophobia, then I’m guilty.”

ISIS is turning up the heat, and it’s getting uncomfortably close… According to a report from a police chief in the western Iraqi town of al-Baghdadi, ISIS militants burned 45 people to death there, the same way they burned alive a captured Jordanian pilot. Not only is ISIS ratcheting up its brutality, but this was just five miles from a base where 320 US Marines are training Iraqi forces. We’re told ISIS is being beaten back, but this is the first new territory they’ve taken in several months. Just last week, they got close enough to attempt suicide attacks on that base. Of course, for these losers to attack US Marines might be a new definition of “suicide attack.” Still, it’s worrying that such brutal militants are that close to American service people. Especially when their hands are tied by a White House that can’t bring itself to call ISIS what they are…or to admit their latest victims were Christians…and that is even now holding a summit to discuss “violent extremism,” where they refuse even to say what ISIS is extreme about.

World War II General George Patton was famous for saying that nobody ever won a war by dying for his country. The way you win wars is by making the other guy die for his country. Yes, I did clean up that quote a bit. Anyway, someone might need to send a DVD of the movie “Patton” to our State Department because they seem a bit unclear on how wars are won.



State Department spokesperson Marie Harf told MSNBC that we are killing a lot of ISIS fighters, and we’ll keep on killing them, but she said, “We cannot win this war by killing them.” She said we have to go after the root causes that lead people to join groups like ISIS, such as helping to build their economies so they have job opportunities. Well, that was too much even for Chris Matthews. He shot back that these are Sunnis and Shias who’ve hated each other for generations, and that we couldn’t eliminate poor people in the Middle East in fifty lifetimes. Do they really think ISIS militants are cutting off people’s heads because they can’t get jobs as butchers? You know, the war in the Middle East has been referred to as “The Thousand Year War.” If the only way to win it is not by killing the enemy but by relying on this Administration’s ability to improve an economy and create jobs, I can see how this could easily take a thousand years.

There’s a new high-risk activity in Europe: “Walking While Jewish”… Journalist Zvika Klein decided to find out what it’s like these days to be a Jew in Paris. So he put on a skull cap and just walked around, from the Eiffel Tower to Muslim neighborhoods, not saying a word, as he was secretly taping. He was met with hateful stares, pointed fingers, hostile body language and insults. He was called a “dog,” spat on and threatened. He even captured one shocked little boy saying, “What is he doing here Mommy? Doesn’t he know he will be killed?” Klein said this is what Jews have to live with every day. It’s why they don’t dare flaunt their religion, they wear hats and try not to go out at night at all. European political leaders had no immediate comment. They were too busy slamming Benjamin Netanyahu as misinformed for suggesting that Jews should move to Israel because they’re no longer safe in Europe. Might I suggest those politicians try putting on a yarmulke, going outside and saying that?

The radio world has lost one of its giants. Gary Owens has died at home in L.A. at 80. He was most famous as the announcer on the ‘60s hit show, “Laugh-In,” who made insane segues in a booming voice, with his hand always cupped behind one ear. But he was also a legendary radio host, and the voice of countless commercials and cartoons, from “Bullwinkle” to “Space Ghost.” He also gave many comics and writers their first break, including Albert Brooks and comedy writer Ken Levine of “MASH,” “Cheers” and “Frasier.” In his blog, Levine described Gary Owens as universally loved and respected, and the only person he ever knew in show business who had no enemies

I applaud Judge Hanen's ruling that rightly draws a line in the sand on President Obama's unconstitutional executive orders. President Obama has a fundamental lack of understanding of the Constitution and executive authority. Despite what he thinks, our Constitution doesn't allow the president to just invent new immigration laws. This ruling is a battle victory in the war against the president's unconstitutional overreach.

If ISIS thinks that upping its brutality is a winning war strategy, then they’re as dumb as they are vicious… Over the weekend, ISIS released a horrific new video, allegedly showing the simultaneous beheadings of 21 peaceful Coptic Christian hostages from Egypt. The video was shot in Libya, a nation our smart diplomacy was going to help by deposing strongman Moammar Qaddafi, only to see it spiral into another hotbed of violence and radicalism. In the video, ISIS also threatens Egypt and Europe. Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi immediately launched airstrikes on ISIS in Libya. He called ISIS murderers and criminals “who are without the slightest humanity” and said Egypt reserves the right of retaliation any way and any time it sees fit. Just as with the burning alive of the Jordanian pilot, ISIS’ escalating brutality has infuriated another Muslim nation into taking action against them. If they think that doubling down on brutality is a winning strategy, then they’re also doubling down on stupid.



Like a burned-out rock star, ISIS seems to be running out of creative ideas, so they’re starting to repeat themselves, only in larger productions. The terrorist group just released a video that claims to show 17 captive Kurdish fighters being paraded through the Iraqi city of Kirkuk in cages, with a threat to burn them all alive, the way they did a captive Jordanian pilot. As I said, doubling down on both brutality and stupidity. Burning one Jordanian pilot brought that entire nation into the war against them. The Kurds are already fighting ISIS tooth and toenail. Do they really think that committing the same atrocity times 17 is going to make the Kurds surrender?

Lloyd Lindsey is one of the main reasons I got into politics. For those who have wished I had never been elected to anything, blame Lloyd. Without him, it wouldn’t have happened. Just realize that nothing would give Lloyd greater joy than knowing that something he did really rattled the cages of the people who didn’t agree with his politics! He loved poking at the opposition, but never in a mean spirited way. There was always a glimmer in his eye and a smile on his face. He was the ultimate happy warrior.



But for Lloyd, politics was not a game. It was the force that protected our liberties, preserved a worthy culture, and made the free enterprise system work. His principles were those that made America the greatest nation on earth. People had individual freedom, but with it individual responsibility. Government was to protect us, not to provide for us. Taxes should be taken sparingly and used wisely for the things that we couldn’t do for ourselves, such as field an army, build a highway, or secure our borders.



Lloyd was my original counselor and advisor. He took a liking to me a year and half before I even launched my first campaign and was the prime encourager. His support gave me more than wise counsel; it gave me credibility with people who otherwise would have never paid attention to me. He personally put together meetings, banquets, events, and fundraising efforts. He never asked of others what he didn’t ask of himself, and his financial contributions and his hours of work for me exceeded that of anyone he ever enlisted.



I loved Lloyd personally and not just politically. He was disgustingly funny, and his wry and dry sense of humor was not only hilariously funny, but it usually had a point that revealed truth and wisdom.



The best advice I ever got was Lloyd’s. The best homemade ice cream I ever had was Cornelia’s, which was worth a trip to Camden to receive. The best memories I have of early days of campaigning were at events that Lloyd put together that always exceeded what they should have been. I wasn’t so foolish as to think people came to see some unknown wannabe like me-they came because Lloyd invited them and they knew it was easier to buy a ticket and show up than to have to answer to Lloyd for not doing it.



It’s said that when you see a turtle on a fence post, you can be certain that he didn’t get there by himself. It’s equally true that when you see a political figure on the pedestal, he didn’t get there by himself either. Whatever pedestal I may have or will occupy, it wouldn’t have happened without Lloyd Lindsey, my friend, my mentor, and my Christian brother. When God made Lloyd, he broke the mold and said, “That’s it. The world is only capable of one like this.” But what a world it was because of him! Lloyd, I will always love you and your family. I’ll see you in glory, where I feel certain, you’ll be holding court, spinning tales, and giving the saints what-for.



With the highest respect,



Mike Huckabee
