Today's Commentary:  Judicial Activism Reigns -- UK stops sharing Manchester intel with US -- A Meaningful Trip For Melania



The Fourth Circuit Federal Appeals Court has upheld 10-3 a lower court ban on President Trump’s stay on immigration from six nations that were identified by the Obama Administration as hotbeds of anti-American terrorism where refugees could not be vetted (despite what critics claim, it's not a “Muslim ban” – it doesn’t affect dozens of other majority Muslim nations, including several that have even larger Muslim populations.)

Again, they based the decision on year-old campaign rhetoric and not the specific language of the law, an unprecedented act of judicial activism and an outrageous intrusion into the President’s clearly-enumerated Constitutional power to act quickly to protect national security and keep Americans safe -- the importance of which you’d think they might finally have grasped in light of recent deadly terrorist attacks involving refugees and children of refugees in Europe. If previous courts had used such a ridiculous standard, they would have thrown out Obamacare as unconstitutional because Obama plainly lied in saying, “If you like your doctor/plan, you can keep them,” instead of deliberately overlooking all the reasons that it actually was unconstitutional.

This will end up in the Supreme Court (we still have to wait for the Ninth Circuit Court to issue its inevitable incorrect ruling agreeing with the Fourth Circuit). Let us hope it gets there ASAP and that that’s the point at which common sense and the Constitution will finally prevail.

UK stops sharing Manchester intel with US

By Mike Huckabee

British law enforcement officials would like to conduct their own investigation of the Manchester terrorist attack without having pictures of their crime scene appearing in the New York Times.

In fact, they’re so dismayed by this development that they’ve decided to stop sharing information on the crime with the United States, at least for now. (At the risk of sounding like President Trump, I might call it “a temporary ban, until they figure out what’s going on.”) Truly, the America culture has become one of no discretion whatsoever, no reflection before trafficking in information that might need to be kept close to the vest, even in the interest of our own national security. Tragically, that applies not just to the media but to “deep state” operatives within our own government.

And the media’s hysterical build-up of some vague Trump-Russia connection, unsupported by any evidence, damages relationships with even our closest allies, who inevitably worry that Trump himself might not be trusted to keep their secrets from his dear friend Vladimir. The left’s single-minded focus on “getting” Trump is undermining this country both at home and abroad.


A Meaningful Trip For Melania

By Mike Huckabee

When Melania Trump said she was honored and humbled at meeting the Pope, it apparently was much more than the obligatory political statement.

It’s not widely known that the First Lady is Roman Catholic. She grew up in Slovenia under Communist rule and so was not baptized into any faith. But with her visit to the Vatican, she has met the Pope, who blessed a rosary for her, and prayed at the hospital named for the Baby Jesus, so this trip was indeed a blessing.

While at the hospital, she read to a young Greek boy awaiting a heart transplant (the donor heart had just been found) and visited other children whose spirit touched her. It’s been said that President Trump will return changed from his experiences on this unforgettable trip, and no doubt that’s true of Melania as well.

    We can only hope that this gets to SCOTUS before American citizens become victims of an attack like the one in Manchester or in Egypt.

    Please keep fighting for liberty Mr. Huckabee and thank you.
