  • HUCKSTERING: In D.C.
Ron Fournier of the National Journal joins former Gov. Mike Huckabee at a session with Washington political reporters in which Huckabee's frequent Holy Land jaunts seem to form the basis for a developing pitch that he's the sort of presidential candidate to lead the U.S. through troubled foreign times. Not that he's announcing mind you.

He thinks a governor — not just him — is uniquely qualified to be president. 

Could we send Huckabee to the Holy Land permanently?

UPDATE: The Hill makes Huckabee seem even more like a candidate and reports he's got yet another money vehicle, America Takes Action, that he says has raised seven-figures. It's a 501C4 organization. That means he can rake in a lot of dough and spend it in broad ways without revealing much about sources. According to one recent news release, local radio host Alice Stewart, a former staffer in his presidential campaign, flacked a pro-Israel event for Huckabee and the group. From the release:

America Takes ACTION (ATA) is Gov. Mike Huckabee’s newly formed C4, founded on the principle that societal change is a result of good people uniting and acting together. ACTION stands for Activating Citizens to Impact Our Nation

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
