Tis the season to act rudely!

Miss Manners would kindly advise CNN that they’re doing it all wrong when it comes to the matter of the White House Christmas party. If they really can’t stand the thought of sipping eggnog with the President, Melania and the White House staff, they should compose a nicely-worded RSVP and politely decline.

Adoption tax credit

By Mike Huckabee

Interesting analysis of why people who successfully fought efforts to eliminate the Adoption Tax Credit may have hurt both low and high income adoptive parents, undermined the purpose of tax reform, and lost their chance to exchange it for something better. All because Americans hate our complicated tax code, but nobody wants to give up any itemized deductions that apply to them.



SCOTUS follows its job description

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s welcome news that, as currently composed, the U.S. Supreme Court is more interested in correct legislative procedure than in making law on its own.

After a lower court ruled that Mississippi lawyer Carlos Moore didn’t have standing to sue over the “official endorsement of white supremacy” he thinks is conveyed by the state flag --- it includes the Confederate symbol in its design, and has since the late 1800s --- the Supreme Court similarly rejected the case. They didn’t release a comment with their decision, but Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant made the point that any change in the flag should be done through statewide vote, as opposed to judges. He said he wouldn’t be calling the legislature in for a special session over the issue, noting that the people of Mississippi had voted in 2001 to keep the flag as-is.

There’s more at the link, but I should mention that the headline, “SCOTUS Makes Heroic Stand For Southern History, Defends Flag,” isn’t quite accurate. They didn’t, strictly speaking, defend the flag. They aren’t there to defend the flag. They are there to defend the LAW, which is represented by the flag and by that blindfolded lady with the scales. And that’s just what they did.


This federal judge blocks President Trump

By Mike Huckabee

Another federal judge has blocked President Trump’s decision to ban openly transgender recruits from the military, ruling that there is no justification for blocking someone from the military who has psychological issues that are linked to higher risk of depression and suicide. It’s nice to know that appointed liberal activist judges are more qualified than the Commander-in-Chief and the Pentagon to make decisions about military morale and preparedness, just as they also know more about and have more power than the President over immigration and national security issues. It’s odd that Obama had the power to change this long-standing policy by executive order, but Trump doesn’t have the power to rescind it by executive order.

This is yet another case in which the Supreme Court needs to step up and give a major attitude adjustment to some power-mad lower court judges. In the meantime, let’s hope President Trump keeps up his excellent judicial nominee picks, and that the Senate keeps confirming them. Thank you, Harry Reid, for taking away the filibuster over judicial confirmations. You probably never realized the future favor that you were doing for the Constitution.

Another federal judge rules in favor of different Trump plan

By Mike Huckabee

A federal judge agreed with other government legal experts that President Trump has the right to appoint a new acting head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, rather than allowing the outgoing Obama appointee to name his own successor. You don’t get to be in charge in Washington just because someone who used to be in charge wants you to take over his job. I believe that was also the only reason Hillary Clinton ever offered for voting for her.


Two chairs

I think it might be time for a little heart-to-heart talk.

Chuck, Nancy: I understand that Trump’s tweets can get under your skin. A lot of Republicans aren’t crazy about them, either. On the other hand, it’s not exactly as if your side has shown tact and respect in the things you’ve said about Donald Trump. We get it: you don’t like him, and he doesn’t like you. But you two are both paid over 193 grand a year, plus a boatload of perks, to deal with things like creating a budget and a comprehensible tax system. So suck it up and go talk to the President like a big boy and girl.

On a personal note, I sympathize with your hurt feelings. On my first day in office after being elected as Arkansas’ second Republican Lieutenant Governor since Reconstruction, I discovered that the Democrats had nailed my office door shut from the inside. Not just a few nails, either, but dozens. That didn’t just hurt my feelings, it really hurt the door. They’d also zeroed out my office budget and removed the furniture. It took 59 days to pry out all the nails and make it possible to go to work. Which I then did, even though it meant reaching to the same hostile, spiteful people who’d done that to me.

So as much as I sympathize with you feeling dissed by Trump, it’s not an excuse to refuse to do your job taking care of the nation’s business. At least Trump offered you two chairs. That’s more than I got.

    With the media game of combining people's names who are together, we can take it to politics. If you combine Chuck and Nancy - you get "Chancy" and that's about as true as it gets!!!
