--------------------------

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

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.

FEATURED STORIES

Dan Crenshaw and Google

By Mike Huckabee 

Twice in one day we have evidence that Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw is becoming a national treasure.  Watch him expertly school a Google executive over his company’s employees reportedly branding conservatives, including Orthodox Jew Ben Shapiro, as “Nazis” and how that corrodes the American value of free speech. This video comes with a complete transcript because you’ll want to read it, savor it and share it with everyone you know.

Tragedy along the border

By Mike Huckabee

A heartbreaking photo went viral of a father and his daughter from El Salvador who drowned in the Rio Grande trying to cross into the US. A lot of liberal politicians and media outlets are trying to exploit the tragedy by blaming their deaths on Republicans and claiming they were desperate to get around our strict immigration enforcement to escape violence and oppression at home.

The story is indeed a senseless, heartbreaking tragedy, but the rest is not true at all. 

https://www.dailywire.com/news/48893/walsh-border-matt-walsh

As the Daily Wire discovered, the two were not in danger at home, nor were they coldly rejected for asylum.  They wanted to come to the US to make more money than they did in their fast food jobs at home, and they risked the crossing because they got tired of waiting for approval and thought that lax enforcement would make it easier just to come in illegally and game the asylum system to stay.  They might still be alive if they had known that wouldn’t work or if they’d known there was a fortified wall they’d have to cross.

I’m not going to blame their deaths on the people responsible for those situations because they were ultimately the result of their own choices.  But anyone who really claims to care about the hardships faced by people who cross dangerous territory to try to enter America illegally really should take a moment to think about whether their positions and public statements are encouraging that.

New Followers

By Mike Huckabee

Interesting, whether it means anything or not:  Blogger Lawrence Person tracks the Twitter follower counts of political figures.  We keep hearing how unpopular and easily beatable Trump is.  But Trump has 61.3 million Twitter followers (plus 26.1 million on his official @POTUS account, but there’s probably a lot of overlap.)  Take a look at how many followers all the Democratic candidates have compared to Trump.

Also note how many new followers they’ve added since Persons last updated the numbers.  Surprisingly, while Elizabeth Warren was #1 with 110,000 new followers, Joe Biden added only 20,000. Even Andrew Yang added 55,000!  And more bad news for “Beto”: he didn’t add any more at all.

Most interesting number: all those Democrats combined added a total of just under 424,000 new followers.  Over the same period, Trump added 700,000.  And he already had far more followers than all of the Democrats put together.

Then again, be honest: who wouldn’t rather read Trump’s tweets than Joe Biden’s and Kirsten Gillibrand’s?

The Washington Post obtained some contracts for Joe Biden’s 2017 speaking engagements, and they sound more like concert contracts for a spoiled rock star than a regular, middle class guy, as per his image.  On the other hand, I sure wish I had his agent!

 I’m sad to report that Beth Chapman, wife of reality show star Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman, has died at 51 following a long battle with throat and lung cancer. At the link, Duane shares Beth’s moving last words to him.  My staff and I extend our prayers and sympathy to the family.

And the narratives continue to crumble:  Remember how it was supposed to be President Trump who was crude, vulgar and disrespectful and liberals who were offended by that kind of behavior?  Read this story and tell me who sounds like the adult and who sounds like the obnoxious brat.

--------------------------------------

Speaking of upending narratives about how rude the Trumps are and how civilized their leftist critics are: not only did a female server at a Chicago restaurant spit at the President’s son Eric when he was dining there, but while she’s on leave for behavior that should get her fired and arrested, a friend set up a GoFundMe account to support her that quickly raised over $4000.

Two points: if you have nothing better to do with your money than support waitresses who can’t control their spit, then you not only have no business lecturing the rest of us on civility, but I hope you unwittingly dine in whatever restaurant that person ends up working at next.

    I read where some fool recently said the Republican party is dying...I do believe they have that 100% backwards. The Democrat party of today is unrecognizable and growing worse daily. But we most definitely must make sure and certain that many more conservative professors are placed on staff in our Universities and Colleges to counteract subversive ones now teaching against America, capitalism and God and who are encouraging disrespect for our President. These progressive educators need to be weeded out of our educational systems and replaced with educators who love and honor our Constitution and Republic way of life. I would be most happy to transfer these progressives to Venezuela to be re-educated.
