Sobering trends on the Left

As mentioned elsewhere, Elizabeth Warren has a brilliant solution to stop illegal immigration: just make it legal:

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/elizabeth-warren-calls-for-decriminalizing-illegal-immigration

Well, technically, it wouldn’t be “legal,” but it would just be a civil offense like a traffic ticket, which would be zero deterrent.  Warren said, "The truth is, immigrants seeking refuge in our country aren’t a threat to national security.”

This is part of a growing trend on the left: reducing crime stats by making crime legal.  We see it in cities where leftist groups like Justice Democrats are targeting low turnout elections such as those for district attorneys.  A far-left candidate endorsed by AOC just declared victory in Queens, and like all such candidates nationwide, she’s vowing “reform” defined as simply not prosecuting a wide range of crimes.

This should serve as a sobering wake-up call to voters everywhere that you can no longer take local elections for granted if you don’t want your city taken over by criminals and leftist nutjobs.  Think that’s an overstatement?  In places where such DAs have already taken office, cops, residents and business owners complain that crime is skyrocketing as crooks realize they have been given a “stay out of jail free” card by the “prosecutors.” 

Example: “Turnstile jumping,” or evading paying fares on buses and trains, is one of the many crimes Queens’ new DA is promising to ignore.  That lax attitude was already instituted by Manhattan DA Cyrus “But Slap Paul Manafort in Solitary at Rikers” Vance, with a new MTA study showing the result: a 35% jump in fare evasion in the first quarter of 2019, causing a loss to the transit system of over $225 million in revenue in 2018.

Wait, so you mean that if you don’t enforce laws, people commit more crimes?  Who could ever have seen that coming?!  Well, anyone other than a drooling idiot, but lucky for criminals, a lot of those are getting elected these days.

    Many businesses allow employees to work remotely once or twice a week.
    Many businesses require everyone to be in the same location working together for specific
    reasons. A business that does not normally find it conducive to have
    people work remotely, should have an emergency plan in place
    for an unexpected event that makes it necessary. https://americanreceivable.com/is-your-company-prepared-for-an-emergency/

    You are laugh-out-loud funny, Governor, and I agree with you wholeheartedly. Do you write your own dialogues for your show? They are so right-on! Be well, and keep your words coming! I think you are WONDERFUL and I see where your daughter gets her 'spunk.' God Bless You

    What are the COSTS OF ILLEGALS for all of the services we provide? Why is there no one computing these costs at the national, state and local levels?

    if there was ever any doubt that liberalism is a mental disorder, the last two nights confirmed the diagnosis. Liz needs to be pulled into ICE HQ and briefed on criminals who are illegal and the crimes they commit. She is out of touch with what is going on in the real world. I am about to conclude that the "clear and present danger." is named democrat. Socialism = communism. We have a problem and it isn't just in Houston.

    You know, I might be tempted to say "throw open the border and let them all in" just to see how many they'd take before thay said stop because of the filth and crime, but they ARE SO USED to it by now. On a positive note, last night was a little less dull.

    I'm going to laugh myself to death when Democrats do away with criminal laws and the criminals start directing their attention on them with home burglaries and hold ups and car hijackings . With no penalties not only will the criminals we have will flourish but the number of new criminals will go out of sight especially with the politicians.

    Why does the left wing say that tariffs are paid by the consumer, but deny that corporate taxes are paid by the same consumer? And the media let them get away with it. Most of the Democrats running for President want to raise corporate taxes.

    Hi Governor, I believe you are spot on with your comments. There are WAY TOO MANY apathetic Conservative voters in our nation, and the best way to ensure "progressives" get their foot in the door in ANY election, is to stay home and not cast a vote. This especially true when you consider that the liberal/socialists in our country will stop at nothing to get their candidate elected; including having DEAD people vote for them! It's time for "We the People" join President Trump in cleaning out the "SWAMP", to make our country strong, and GREAT, AGAIN!!

    Failure to enforce laws meant to protect citizens and their property is having a devastating effect in San Francisco, a city I once loved, and others.

    In Harris County (Houston), Texas, a Democrat DA let someone charged with armed robbery off with deferred abjudication. That person went right out and committed another armed robbery! Who could have possibly seen this coming??

    The demise of the Democratic Party started when Reagan left the Democratic Party and made it perfectly clear why. If people like Mccain would not have chastised the woman who tried to expose President Obama as not being solidly Christian and in favor of Democracy. The Democratic Party should be relabeled as the Socialist Party . There was once a Party named the Progressive Party was that the Socialist Party by another name. Was the Democratic Party always PRO ABORTION? I believe that a Pennsylvan Democrat was PRO LIFE. what happened

    The Pilgrims were correct in their belief in the total depravity of man. This is ever true. The leftists who wish to decriminalize all criminal activity are a prime example of this universal truth. In my inherent state, I am also a depraved sinner. Only by the mercy of God am I forgiven and receive salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ.

    I keep hearing folks telling us we are a nation of laws. From my humble station in life, I can assure you that I live in dread of our legal system. And yet I am still flabbergasted by Nancy Pelosi’s pretzel-like logic. She’s a lawmaker after all, as she loves to brag, she is a truly gifted lawmaker. So explain this, Gifted One, how can you wring your bloodstained hands over children suffering at the border and yet shriek that abortion must remain legal? And as you contemplate all the wealth this country and it’s oppressed taxpayers have given you to pass these Looking Glass laws, remember that none of it will go with you when your soul is required of you.

    Gov. Mike,
    Warren, like all other Democrats, Socialists, Snowflakes, Communists, et.al. only want to make illegal crossing legal so they can get their votes. The Congressional Circus (and that is exactly what the House is) are no more interested in working for the American People, rather, they want to work for the illegals. In addition, all they want to do is work against President Trump in lieu of working with him.

    Dear Liz, I'll agree to allow one carefully vetted illegal into the US for every leftwing ditzoid who moves to Nicaragua or Venezuela (after renouncing their citizenship and handing in their passport). You want to be a leader, Liz? Head up the parade.

    Lunatics are taking over some of these districts time will tell all, when the trains, buses stop running if the money for the ride drys up no more rides stupid; if you don't want to pay for the service, buy your own vehicle, pay to park, pay the insurance, pay for the tabs pay for your maintenance pay to buy electricity or gas to operate your vehicle, then pay to get into the city OH your travel time will be about the same as your working day. Brilliant people we have today overwhelming. Thank you AOC, DeBlasio, Warren, Cuomo Biden, Sanders, Harris, and the rest of the Candidates your ignorance is your best trait and probably the only trait, you give no other reason to think differently of you!!!!

    Time to clean house!

    so this is the woman who lied about being American Indian and received money for schooling? No wonder she just wants to justify her criminal actions.

    The farther we turn from God and the principles found in His Word, the more lawless we become, the more desensitized to sin. “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,” II Timothy? ?3:1-4? ?NKJV??. Doesn’t this sound like where we are now? Governor Huckabee, thank you for your vigilance, for sharing the truth with us. I appreciate what you are doing, and I am daily in prayer for my country and her leaders (you and your family included).

    Thanks for this commentary, Governor!
    I don’t recall you mentioning the Justice Dems PAC before this. Your readers may not all be aware of the JD’s activities and agenda. They are the
    socialist/Green New Deal PAC which recruits, trains, funds and runs candidates for Congress and for local DA elections.
    Their goal, because they know they cannot win on an overt socialist ticket, is to gradually “take over” the Democratic Party and our justice system from within. Hence, the likes of AOC, Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Omar and a few others in Congress who are giving Pelosi headaches. It is a dangerous and seditious organization.
    For those who doubt this, take a few minutes to watch the you-tube video called “The Brains Behind AOC” by a Mr. Reagan (you Know she didn’t get there by herself!) The PAC has funding from Soros-linked sources, as well.
