Border Crisis

By Mike Huckabee

The crisis at the border continues to intensify, even as the Biden White House continues to deny it’s a crisis – even while sending FEMA to help. FEMA is the agency that deals with disasters, and the “E” in its name stands for “Emergency.” So it’s not a “crisis,” it’s just a disaster and an emergency. That’s reassuring.

Here are a few of the latest developments in the non-crisis at the border:

Axios claims to have obtained a leaked document showing that 3,314 unaccompanied minors have been held in detention facilities (none dare call them “kids in cages” anymore) for longer than the legal maximum of 72 hours, and 823 have spent over 10 days there. New Jersey Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy tweeted that he just "left the border processing facility" and witnessed hundreds of children packed into "big open rooms."

And Biden dares call the Governor of Texas a “Neanderthal” just for lifting the state mask mandate? Seems to me that the biggest danger to Texas of a COVID superspreader event is Biden’s border policy.

Biden’s solution to the overcrowded detention centers isn’t to reinstate the Trump policies he reversed or finish building the wall. No, he has a better idea: US taxpayers will be billed $86 million for the cost of providing illegal entrants with free hotel rooms. Tell them there's no Room Service; maybe that will discourage them from coming here.

Remember when we used to talk about how stupid it was to release illegal border crossers on the US side of the border, on their pinky-swear promise to return for a later court date? Well, Biden must agree, because Fox News reports that Border Patrol agents are now allowing them to go without even bothering to schedule a court date.

Say, do you know what you call it when you don’t turn back illegal immigrants but let them go free in America without even scheduling a court date? “OPEN BORDERS!” Biden’s half-hearted warning that our border is closed is about as effective as leaving your front door open when you go on vacation, with a Post-It note on it saying, “Please don’t rob me.”

(That article also includes some comments from the former acting director of ICE who believes this border surge is not due to incompetence but is quite deliberate and created by design.)

Meanwhile, Biden’s attempts to block the media from seeing the disaster he’s wrought at the border are so egregious that (hold on to your hats!) even CNN is criticizing him for them.

Finally, former President Trump issued a blistering statement about how badly Biden has botched border security, deliberately destroying a system that would have worked on autopilot if he’d just left it alone. Trump accused Biden of causing “death and human tragedy” and warned, "The only way to end the Biden Border Crisis is for them to admit their total failure and adopt the profoundly effective, proven Trump policies."

Here’s Trump’s statement in full.

With each passing day, the magnitude of the crisis on the border grows, the attempts to downplay it and block the public from seeing it become more transparent, and the claim that it’s somehow Trump’s fault and Biden just “inherited” it looks ever more ludicrous. At this point, Democrats blaming Biden’s monumental mess on Trump is like someone letting Grandpa drive their car and when he crashes it through the front window of Piggly-Wiggly, blaming it on the guy who owned the car before they did.

Teen Vogue

By Mike Huckabee

I’ve been writing for a long time about Teen Vogue, how it pushes far-left radical dogma and pornographic sexual content to impressionable young people, and how allowing your kids to read it is tantamount to child abuse. So it’s been eye-opening to watch the cancel culture eat its own with the recent forced resignation of newly-hired editor Alexi McCammond, after a Teen Vogue staffer accused her of “past racist and homophobic tweets.”

But now, the story has taken an interesting twist. The staffer who was so proud of herself for getting McCammond canceled (senior social media manager Christine Davitt) is herself accused of sending several tweets back in 2009 and 2010 in which she used the n-word. This was well before Teen Vogue ran its 2019 article, “Stop Using the N-Word If You’re Not Black” (she’s not.) But that doesn’t matter: cancel culture has taught us that everyone in history must be judged and condemned by whatever standards were just invented five minutes ago.

As Rick Moran points out at the linked article, it will be very entertaining to see if Teen Vogue engages in a double standard and excuses Davitt while driving out McCammond for the same thing. Or will the cancel culture devour itself, and Davitt end up being “fed to the crocodiles”…“blackballed, tarred, feathered, and run off the internet on the proverbial rail for transgressing against woke theology”?

It will indeed be interesting to see what happens…as long as nobody has to read Teen Vogue to find out.

Not that the Vogue magazine for alleged adults is doing any better. Once imperious Vogue editor Anna Wintour caved to the woke mob in jettisoning McCammond, and she’s been forced to apologize for various PC infractions, such as not featuring enough black content creators.

But Tiana Lowe at the Washington Examiner makes the best point of all: these “woke” young staffers screaming for the heads of their politically incorrect superiors are working for a publication that panders to the rich, revels in income inequality, promotes elitism, helped revive fur as a fashion staple, and commits countless other PC crimes against their socialist utopian ideals. If they actually believed in those leftist principles, they’d all resign immediately. Somehow, I don't see that happening.

A Plan To Challenge Pelosi

By Mike Huckabee

Georgia Republican Rep. Andrew Clyde owns a gun store, but he wasn’t armed when he twice bypassed the metal detectors Speaker Nancy Pelosi had installed at the House. She was her typical smug, lecturing self when she scolded Republicans for “disrespecting our heroes by refusing to adhere to basic precautions keeping members of our congressional community safe,” and fined Clyde $5,000 for the first incident and $10,000 for the second. She also fined Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, saying, “It is beyond comprehension why any member would refuse to adhere to these simple, common-sense steps to keep this body safe.”

But now, Clyde has revealed that he and Gohmert actually wanted her to fine them, and for a very good reason: it was part of a plan to give them legal standing to file a federal lawsuit against her, challenging the Constitutionality of her metal detectors. Clyde plans to go to the House Ethics Committee first, but since that’s run by Democrats, he’s already prepared to move on to federal court.

Click the link for more details, including the very reasonable argument that if Pelosi really believed House members were in danger from an invasion of armed insurrectionists, why would she be trying to take away House members’ best means of self-defense?

Speaking of all those security measures to hold back the hordes of invisible insurrectionists, there are growing signs that even the Democrats realize how much they overplayed their hand in pushing that melodramatic political theater. It flopped with the public, so they’re now quietly trying to back down off the stage and surreptitiously pack away the props without anyone noticing.

Key “amen” portion of the article at that link: “We do not live in a dictatorship, and our political leaders should be ashamed for perpetuating this farce. When Republicans retake the House in 2022, as I suspect they will, they should tear down what remaining nonsense remains.”

I couldn't agree more, although I suspect that by 2022, there will so much built-up nonsense to be torn down and hauled off that they’ll need a bulldozer and a fleet of garbage trucks.

    I could not help but post this for your edification Mike

    Information indicating Biden’s plans to nominate Gayle Connelly Manchin, wife of Manchin — a critical swing vote in the Senate — to be the chair of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) at the tune of $163,000/year.

    This does have all the appearances of attempted bribery. Sadly, the position she will hold, is a slap in the face of Christianity.

    On a good note, I just recently found your newsletter and appreciate very much the lift I receive as I follow your writing daily. Thank you and may our Lord continue to bless you.

    Thank you for hanging in there, and giving the public unbiased views and news that I am sure some are attempting to cover up. I don't know what this country is coming to, or will become...I am 85 yrs young...can't believe the stuff being forced on students...can't believe people are so easily duped. Just pray for the Lord to help this country, pray for the next election to help us out of this mire. Thank you for being a sane voice !

    If the election "reform" bill should pass, it appears that conservatives from all over the country would be able to find a way to vote in Nancy Pelosi's district (and anywhere else in the country they felt more votes were needed). In fact an election held under that law could destroy whole forests with the amount of paper needed for all the billions and billons of ballots that could be used. I'll bet we could get more votes cast that the population of the entire planet, if I understood the rules I read.

    Thank you for your words. It's refreshing to read some common sense. It's a shame so many people are blinded by the woke mob, the far left, liberals and socialist. May God help us be America again as in GOD WE TRUST

    I’m extremely upset. The younger children have no say in this suffering. But it seems republicans won’t get down and dirty like liberals. They lie, cheat , steal our money. I’m 68 and still working. Now more money will be taken for taxes while politicians get wealthier. Biden is a front for Obama. This is all a crime. While I feel so sorry for the small children , I have a family too. We can’t accept the world. And when Pelosi and Hillary speak about children , just remember they attend the “Church of Satan “ in LA. Purely evil people.

    Just read William Fuhrer's remarks regarding impeachment of Biden. His points are well taken. Since Biden swore an oath to protect and defend this country from enemies foreign and domestic and has failed in that, there is far more justification for removal for his failures to fulfill that obligation to his oath. The reasons for his removal are far more valid than the lack of any such failings on the part of Trump. I know it cannot happen because no Lib would vote for it. This is a problem the forefathers could not have foreseen; an entire corrupt party all ignoring their sworn duties as a block. jack

    Mike: Maybe you can help me with this. I don't think the immigration crisis fix should be borne by the USA. If I am correct, legitimate asylum seekers must seek that asylum in the nearest safe location. That would be Mexico. Mexico would be obligated to determine the validity of the asylum need and that would relieve the USA from this. Asylum seekers do not have a legitimate right to pass thru Mexico to our border and if Mexico is deemed a sovereign nation, they need to do what is necessary to secure their borders whether it be a wall or troops. We have given them a free pass from owning their responsibilities. What makes the USA responsible for the chaos in all corners of the world? This whole thing is BS and Biden had no right to throw out the welcome mat in his zeal to virtue signal. Since Mexico did not take the initiative to halt this march through their country, they caused the crisis at our border. This should obligate them to reimburse the USA for all costs associated with the crisis they could have prevented. Did the cartels threaten that govt. to let this happen and do the cartels pay hush money to the Mexico govt. who seem to willingly allow this to happen? Just speculating, but this would make sense. USA taxpayers are picking up the tab for Mexico's dereliction and once more we are the suckers on the block. We pay for border housing facilities, enforcement staff and hotel rooms all because our southern neighbors ignore all international law. When will our leaders wise up? I'm guessing not soon since this has been allowed to go on for decades. jack

    "When Republicans retake the House in 2022, as I suspect they will"
    And just HOW do you think that will happen when the jackasses have perfected "voter fraud" and the rinos do nothing to stop them? Don't believe it is possible?? Look at what happened last November. If you think that election was not rigged by the jackasses and "accepted" by you rinos, I have an ocean front condo in Phoenix for sale very cheap!!!
