‘We will not sell out our children to the federal government’

Obama’s transgender-bathroom push sparks uproar, praise.

Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas and presidential candidate, took to Twitter Friday morning to express outrage at President Obama’s all-court press for transgender rights – specifically, to allow males to use females’ restrooms – and saying the directive issued by his Justice Department demanding schools turn a blind eye to biology and sex is a revealing insight into the president’s personality.

“It tells you a lot about a man and his priorities when he spends more time pushing transgender bathrooms …” Huckabee wrote, in one tweet.

And that was seconds later, followed by another: “… than he does on improving high school graduation rates or decreasing Black on Black violence.”

He’s hardly the one voice to express outrage at Obama’s pressed rights for transgenders, as personified most recently in the Department of Justice’s issuance of guidance to schools telling them to open bathrooms to those of both sexes, as WND reported.

Sen. John Cornyn from Texas said “what the president needs to do is focus on his job and his job is not to intervene in state and local affairs under our constitutional scheme” and clarified “this ought to be a choice made by local officials at the local level held accountable by their own voters.”

Huckabee: Bushes Should Leave GOP If They Won’t Back Trump as Nominee (Video)

“If they are not going to support the people the Republicans nominated, they need to get out of the Republican Party and admit they are not Republican or be honest and say I only want it when I get it my way.”

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee Thursday slammed ex-Presidents George H.W. Bush and his son, George W., for staying away from endorsing Donald Trump as the nominee, saying that if they can’t support the GOP nominee they should get out of the party.

“When we nominated various people over the past several election cycles to be president, there were many of us who had heartburn,” Huckabee, who dropped his own presidential bid after the Iowa caucuses in February, told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” co-host Bill Hemmer.

“But we sucked it up and went out there and vigorously supported our nominee,” he continued. “If they are not going to support the people the Republicans nominated, they need to get out of the Republican Party and admit they are not Republican or be honest and say I only want it when I get it my way.”

Huckabee warns Clinton: Watch out for Trump

‘I can tell you, Hillary is in for the ride of her life’

Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor who recently dropped his bid for the White House, sent out a mocking warning Hillary Clinton’s way, telling the Democratic Party front-runner that if Donald Trump wins, she better be prepared.

He said, on “The Kelly File” on Fox News, neither Bill nor Hillary Clinton have ever faced anything like Trump, and their tried-and-true “Clinton Playbook” of dirty politicking may not prove the match they need to win.

“They’re conventional politicians, but they’re rugged, they’re ruthless,” he admitted.

But that’s nothing compared to the Trump whirlwind, he said.

“The reason I’m sitting in this chair talking to you instead of on stage is because, like everybody else, I underestimated Donald Trump and the connection he was having to voters,” Huckabee said. “I can tell you, Hillary is in for the ride of her life when she has to take on Donald Trump.”

Mike Huckabee: Washington Elites Ought to Be Grateful the People Are Sending Votes and Not Bullets (Video)

“People are sick of watching the handful of the ruling class continue to do well at the expense of those who are trying just to make a living. This is classic Louis XIV/Marie Antoinette versus the people, and the people have had enough.” – Mike Huckabee

Mike Huckabee: Washington, D.C. The Real ‘Sin City’ and ‘Vegas of the East’ (Video)

GOP presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee released a new video ahead of the GOP primary debate in Las Vegas, Nevada, calling Washington, D.C. the real “sin city.”

“Sin City, it’s where liars cheat, crooks and thieves make a living. Futures are destroyed. Families are ruined. Risky and selfish bets. I’m not talking about Las Vegas, but our nation’s capitol, Washington D.C.,” Huckabee says in the video. “Politicians have done enough lying and stealing. It’s time to burn down the corrupt Washington political machine, the Vegas of the East, [and] put Americans first.”

Huckabee’s video was posted to social media on Monday afternoon, one day ahead of the GOP debate hosted by CNN at the Venetian Hotel and Casino.

Huckabee: I’d Make DHS Secretary Live In Laredo Until Border Fence Is Constructed (Video)

Huckabee further stated that the lack of a standalone vote is “corruption. It’s all about donors. It’s all about following the corporate class, the donor class, and that’s why a lot of things don’t happen. It’s why Americans are so frustrated.”

Republican presidential candidate former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee declared, “if I were president, I would deploy the director of Homeland Security to Laredo, Texas, and tell him he and his family would be living there, and wouldn’t get to leave until the fence was constructed” on Friday’s “O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel.

Huckabee stated, “if I were president, I would deploy the director of Homeland Security to Laredo, Texas, and tell him he and his family would be living there, and wouldn’t get to leave until the fence was constructed, and Bill, we could do it in less than a year, because we’ve built a road between British Columbia and Alaska 73 years ago. It was a 1,700 mile road, and it was done under arctic conditions. There’s no way this country, if it wanted to doesn’t have the capacity to take care of this border.”

After the discussion turned Kate’s Law, Huckabee argued, “the best way to handle it is a standalone.” He pointed out that there are some fiscal concerns over the bill, but it would save lives.
