DACA Ruling Stuns Democrats

By Mike Huckabee

Friday, a federal judge ruled in favor of Texas and eight other red states in ending Obama’s DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.) It’s the program that prevents the deportations of illegal immigrants who were brought here as children. Currently, there are about 650,000 people enrolled, and while the judge didn’t remove protections from them, he said there can be no more applicants.

The ruling stunned Democrats and their media handmaidens, but it shouldn’t have. I’ve been writing for years about why DACA is unconstitutional. Even Obama himself said he didn’t have the power to do it before he went ahead and did it anyway. Since then, it’s been treated as untouchable holy writ, despite the fact that it was plainly unconstitutional and even its creator said so.

While critics will wail about the cruelty and unfairness of the ruling, how you feel about the law is irrelevant. As Governor of Arkansas, I saw no point in sending people who had been brought here as children, raised as Americans and gone to school on the taxpayers’ dime to be deported to where they couldn’t even speak the language just as they were about to become productive taxpayers. But the judge was only doing his job of upholding the Constitution. He made it clear that if Congress wants to create DACA, then Congress has to do it. Creating immigration laws is their job, not the President's.

Ironically, they could have done so years ago. This article talks about how President Trump unsuccessfully tried to undo Obama’s unconstitutional version of DACA and was thwarted by courts with far less regard for the Constitution. He actually wanted to pass a legitimate form of DACA, but Democrats in Congress were so furious that they lost the 2016 election, they refused to work with Trump even on things they wanted, like DACA or infrastructure spending. Now, what they call “infrastructure” and Obama’s version of DACA are both in jeopardy because they childishly ignored the rules, demanded more than was reasonable and just wanted to attack.

Why am I reminded of this Aesop fable?...

Cuba News Roundup

By Mike Huckabee

Socialist Congress members Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Occasio-Cortez finally wrestled their tongues away from the cat and said something about the massive demonstrations by Cubans who are fed up with the oppression, tyranny and deprivations of their socialist government.

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/462192/

Of course, they tried to have it both ways, urging the Cuban government to respect the rights of the protesters (that would be a first!) while trying to blame their deprivations on the US embargo of Cuba (did we also put an embargo on justice and human rights, so that the Cuban government didn’t have any of those to dispense?) Instapundit has a round-up of news and comments at the link, including the shrewd observation that claiming socialism would work if only it could trade with the rich capitalist nation next door is “not the killer argument socialists think it is.”


The White House Fight To Stop "Misinformation"

By Mike Huckabee

White House press secretary Jen Psaki not only revealed that the Administration is colluding with Facebook to ban people who spread what they decide is “misinformation,” but she doubled down by claiming that if you’re banned from one social media platform, you should be banned from all of them. Note to college students who like to call everyone they dislike a “fascist”: this is actual fascism.

https://www.westernjournal.com/literal-fascism-eyes-psaki-says-banned-platforms-banned-one/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

Unfortunately for this plan, unless Biden is able to impose actual fascism, he can’t prevent private companies from doing whatever they want, like welcoming all the customers that dumb social media platforms turn away because they care more about promoting leftist political agendas than serving customers and making money. I doubt that Parler, Rumble, MeWe and all the other alternative outlets that are popping up like weeds to challenge the Big Tech monopolies will be quite so willing to turn away millions of customers because Joe Biden doesn’t like what they’re saying.

Along those lines, GETTR, a new social media platform co-created by former Trump spokesman Jason Miller, has added 1.5 million users in record time before most Republicans have even heard of it.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/gettr-explodes-passing-1-5-million-users-in-just-11-days

Ironically, if you could be banned from the media for dispensing misinformation, Jen Psaki would be out of a job.


Speaking Of Dispensing Misinformation

By Mike Huckabee

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott accused President Biden of lying to America about what’s happening at the border and said the White House has “zero credibility” on this issue. And yet, Biden still has a Twitter account. Go figure.

https://www.westernjournal.com/texas-gov-greg-abbott-reveals-biden-lying-america/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

Among the lies: that everything’s fine at the border and there is no surge or crisis caused by Biden reversing Trump’s policies. The US Customs and Border Protection Agency reports that in June, border agents encountered 188,829 migrants trying to cross the border illegally. That’s five times the number they encountered last June.

Ye Shall Know Them By Their Fruits

By Mike Huckabee

Biden’s VP Kamala Harris, put in charge of border security, allowed a massive surge of illegal immigration to go on for 140 days before telling Guatemalans not to come to the US. His Secretary of State took only 2 days to tell Cubans who might try to flee here from brutal communist oppression not to come to the US. And while the Administration is tying the hands of ICE and the Border Patrol, they're sending in the Coast Guard to block any Cubans from getting here.

https://www.westernjournal.com/biden-admin-took-2-days-tell-cubans-keep-kamala-waited-140-days-tell-guatemalans-thing/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

Roger Simon at the Epoch Times has a blistering op-ed about how the Biden Administration is turning its back on Cuban pro-freedom protesters while (in an eerie echo of Obama’s desertion of Iranian pro-freedom protesters) removing sanctions on Iran and kowtowing to the Mullahs to get them to reenter Obama’s Iranian nuclear deal.

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/462120/

The full article is behind a paywall, but if you’re not a subscriber, that Instapundit link has a substantial excerpt, including this opening, which deserves to be quoted far and wide:

“If I hadn’t left the Democratic Party years ago, I would leave it now. Their namby-pamby, lip-service reaction to the uprising of the Cuban people against 62 years of brutal communist oppression is shameful beyond words.”

    What is the 1st rule of any corruption investigation..."Follow the MONEY." Now, yes, we taxpayers are paying for every illegal across our borders...BUT WHO IS WRITING THE CHECKS? "The GAO" knows exactly how many people (maybe not the names--names not important), how exactly how many buses, planes, trains, taxis, trucks etc., these illegals are transported in, which predominately "red" state they are transported to and dumped off, how many got the "welcome checks" (how much), and every sleazy rundown motel and landlord slum house they are staying at, and how much a night the cost is. The more that have COVID or other diseases the better as this internal infection is intentionally spread in the "red" state a LOT more than in a "blue" state. They can always send some to blue states to make up for the loss of those who left. But the infection of the red states are the most important.
    Do you think these contracted transportations services, and shelter places are going to keep quite if not paid by the Government Accounting Office(GAO),--Pronto?
    So, don't tell me or any logical thinking person that the GAO "Cost Expenditure" records can not be subpoenaed and made transparent especially in a Senate investigation committee!
    However, when the Jackass was picked for the Demo mascot/symbol, and the Elephant was picked for the Repub mascot/symbol, there was no two better choices that could be made for each...The slow, lubbering, do almost nothing till it is too late to do anything Republican Elephant, and the arrogant, stubborn, obnoxious, egotistical Democrat Jackass! Can you name anything better other than the "Ostrich" with its head buried in its ass for the Republican mascot/symbol?

    You can bet your bippy that those illegal immigrants coming in will be put on buses with fake ids and taken to polling places where they will vote straight Dem tickets having been properly coached about how they will get all the free stuff. I repeat, the left will ANYTHING to win the next elections, and I do mean anything. They have no conscience.

    I believe the Constitution is very clear: those things not expressly outlined in the document as under Federal jurisdiction belong to the States. We are NOT a democracy. We are a Republic, a federation of many little countries. As things are going now, we might as well tear up that document as the administration and
    Congress, and often the courts are ignoring it and the GOP is gutless.
