Mike Huckabee

Datum narození: 24. srpen 1955

Michael Dale Huckabee je americký politik, v letech 1996 až 2007 guvernér státu Arkansas a neúspěšný kandidát na republikánskou nominaci pro prezidentské volby v roce 2008. Zároveň je Huckabee autorem několika knih, bývalým baptistickým pastorem, komentátorem pro stanici Fox News Channel, řečníkem a muzikantem. Je také znám tím, že během velmi krátké doby dokázal zhubnout o 50 kg a poté začal propagovat zdravý životní styl. V roce 2010 se v souvislosti s únikem amerických diplomatických kabelogramů na serveru WikiLeaks vyslovil pro smrt Juliana Assangeho a „toho zodpovědného za únik diplomatických depeší“ – ten označil za velezradu a o trestu za tento čin řekl, že „cokoli méně než poprava by bylo příliš vlídný trest“. Se svojí ženou má tři dospělé děti.

V době, kdy byl guvernérem Arkansasu, udělil více milostí odsouzeným jak jeho tři předchůdci dohromady. Milost od něj dostali i Wayne DuMond a Maurice Clemmons, zločinci, kteří se po svém omilostnění dopustili dalších závažných trestných činů.

Centrum své volební kampaně měl v Little Rocku, v Arkansasu.

Citáty Mike Huckabee

„Zahraniční politika tohoto prezidenta je nejnezodpovědnější v americké historii. Je nesmírně naivní, že důvěřuje Íráncům. Tímto jednáním vede Izraelce ke dveřím pece.“ o Baracku Obamovi, 2015

„There were massive protests in debtor nations such as Greece, and Obama indirectly lectured Merkel that austerity policies might destroy the fragile recovery. Some nations agreed with him, such as France, which went “all in” by electing an outright socialist, François Hollande, as President and giving him a socialist Parliament. Hollande imposed the predictable economic solutions of punishing the successful, including a controversial 75 percent millionaire’s tax. These measures caused capital to flee from France and even led French film icon Gerard Depardieu to give up his French passport and move to Belgium and be granted citizenship by Russia, which charges him a 6 percent income tax rate. (I hear that in exchange, he must appear in every movie made in Russia, the way he did in France.) Panicking at the public revolt, Hollande promised to enact some market-based reforms, such as cutting spending to reduce the deficit, enacting some pro-growth policies, and capping government worker salaries. But it was too little too late. The voters took a sharp right turn in the next election. Sound familiar?“ God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy

„Liberals in NY and LA love to scoff at Fox News, or as they all call it (as if they thought of it themselves), “Faux News.” Meanwhile, the rest of the nation respectfully disagrees. From Mediabistro, April 30, 2014: Fox News finished its 148th consecutive month as the top-rated cable news network. FNC’s hold on total viewers remains particularly strong, with the network beating CNN and MSNBC combined in every hour. The ratings for April 2014 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data): • Primetime (Mon–Sun): 1,614,000 total viewers / 296,000 A25–54 • Total Day (Mon–Sun): 960,000 total viewers / 201,000 A25–54 … [Also] it was a milestone month for “Fox & Friends,” which marks 150 consecutive months as the top-rated cable news morning show.“ God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy

„Here’s the dirty little secret about poverty programs: They aren’t about ending poverty—they are about perpetuating government programs and private sector enterprises that make up what I call the “industry of poverty.” Yes, poverty is a condition for poor people, but it’s a career for those who administer the programs and who would be put out of business if they were actually successful in eradicating poverty, so rest assured, they will never eradicate it. Trust me on this—the biggest fights I ever had as governor were trying to take money from a “provider” that should have gone to someone who was actually poor and needed it. Federal welfare spending has risen 375 percent (in constant 2011 dollars) since 1965 and total welfare spending has climbed almost as much, writes Tennant. If money solved the problem, we wouldn’t have a problem.“ God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy

„While the coastal media elites would have us believe that Americans are endlessly fascinated with the salacious doings of the Kardashian clan and their various divorces, pregnancies, and exposures of their bodies, the highest-rated episode ever of their reality show drew 3.7 million viewers in 2010. Meanwhile, the tight-knit, God-fearing, Bible-believing Robertson family on Duck Dynasty, alternately mocked and scorned by the coastal elites, drew 11.77 million viewers to their season four premiere in August 2013. It not only beat all competition on the major broadcast networks, it still stands as the highest-rated telecast in the history of the A&E cable channel.“ God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy

„In church politics, you’re surprised when people are bad, while in secular politics you’re surprised when people are good.“ Character Makes a Difference: Where I'm From, Where I've Been, and What I Believe

„Every amendment in the Bill of Rights expressly tells the government what IT is forbidden to do, not one of them explains what the people can't do“ A Simple Government: Twelve Things We Really Need from Washington

„quite compelling its admonition to use wealth as a means to be generous and not just as an end in itself.“ God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy

„For instance, the United States now has the highest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world: 39.1 percent (35 percent federal tax plus the average state tax). Even in Sweden, it’s only 22 percent. In France, it’s 34.4 percent—and their leaders are actual, card-carrying socialists! If that’s not enough to scare corporations away from building factories in America, consider all the other disincentives placed on them: the Obamacare mandates; the explosion of government regulations from the EPA, the FTC, and the whole alphabet soup of federal agencies; the fact that if they want to move money they made and had already paid taxes on in other nations back to America, where it could create jobs, we tax it again, eliminating their profits. The private research firm Audit Analytics calculated that between 2008 and 2013, American-owned corporations amassed over $2.1 trillion in profits overseas that were not brought back to the United States to be reinvested because they would be subject to double taxation. Imagine how big a “stimulus” it would be to job creation here at home to inject $2.1 trillion of nonborrowed money directly into private sector investment. Companies used to run to America; now they run from America.“ God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy

„The fact is, since America’s “War on Poverty” was launched a little over fifty years ago, the poverty rate in America is exactly where it was then. The main difference is that today, even poverty isn’t as dire for most people as it was fifty years ago. Michael Tennant, writing in The New American, said: “Fifteen trillion dollars: That’s how much American taxpayers have forked over in the name of helping the poor since 1964. And what do we have to show for it? A poverty rate that has barely budged, an entrenched bureaucracy, and a population—like that of Greece and Portugal, two welfare-state basket cases—increasingly dependent on government handouts.“ God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy
