Supreme Court strikes down moratorium

By Mike Huckabee

In a 6-3 decision Thursday (the three liberals dissenting because feelings trump the Constitution with them), the Supreme Court struck down President Biden’s extension of the moratorium on paying rent.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise. In a heavily-criticized decision, Justice Kavanaugh allowed the previous moratorium to stay in place but said it could only be extended by Congress. Biden ignored that and extended it anyway. Now, the full Court has slapped him down, saying that it “strains credulity” for the CDC to claim that a decades-old statute giving it the power to order things like fumigation or pest control also gives it the sweeping authority to declare that renters don’t have to pay their rent.

A government that actually works wouldn’t even need to deal with this because Congress already authorized $46.6 billion to assist low-income renters during the pandemic, but 89% of that has yet to be distributed by the states. That left landlords holding the bag. And despite the cartoon images of greedy landlords that many Democrats in DC may imagine, many of them are small investors or retirees who depend on their rental income to survive, and they are barely hanging on. This SCOTUS ruling should come as a great relief to them, provided this Administration actually obeys it, which is hardly a sure bet.

In more evidence of what’s bad news for Biden in court is good news for America, the “pause” he put on all new oil and gas drilling leases on federal land is quietly being lifted after the Administration lost in court and is nearly out of appeals. But what appears to have forced them to give in is that the judge threatened contempt charges if they failed to comply with the previous order. I guess that’s what it takes to make this White House acknowledge the existence of the Constitution.

One of Biden’s many mindless “reverse everything Trump did!” executive orders, the pause on energy leases was a sop to his radical environmentalist base. The problem is, whether we create our own energy or not, we still need it. All that these assaults on domestic oil and gas production accomplished was to reduce the Administration to having to beg OPEC to produce more oil (they said, “No,” by the way.) Let’s hope this will go a little way toward repairing the damage Biden caused to our energy independence and national security, and to bringing down skyrocketing gas prices. If so, I’m sure Biden will take credit.

Support For Taiwan reaches a historic high

By Mike Huckabee

A poll by the Chicago Council for Global Affairs found that Americans’ support for Taiwan is at historic highs.

53% support a formal US-Taiwan alliance and 52% would support sending US troops if China attacked Taiwan. That’s the highest support since this poll began in 1982. China has been threatening Taiwan and pointing to President Biden’s abandonment and betrayal of our allies in Afghanistan as a warning to Taiwan not to depend on the US for support. That might have helped increase Americans’ support of Taiwan. The poll takers say that public support “may itself bolster US credibility in a crisis scenario."

The problem, of course, is that America is stuck with a President who has proven he has zero credibility and doesn’t care what Americans think. He’s stubbornly standing by his catastrophic bungling of Afghanistan even as polls show massive public disapproval. So while I’m glad to see Americans are waking up to the dangers of the world and realizing how fast things can fall apart when you elect the wrong person, there’s not much that can be done about it until he’s gone. Until then, pray for Taiwan. And for the Afghan people, the US and the entire free world, or what’s left of it.

Harvard news that will make you question the educational value of a Harvard degree

By Mike Huckabee

In case you needed one more reason not to blow a king’s ransom indoctrinating your kids with an Ivy League education, add this one to the pile: Harvard’s organization of chaplains just hired a new president, Greg Epstein, who is an atheist.

Epstein, who also wrote the book “Good Without God,” told the New York Times, “There is a rising group of people who no longer identify with any religious tradition but still experience a real need for conversation and support around what it means to be a good human and live an ethical life…We don’t look to a god for answers. We are each other’s answers.”

So if you want to go bankrupt sending your kids to a university where the head chaplain is an atheist who believes that answers to questions about ethics, morality and the spirit can be found not in the Word of God but by consulting the kind of people who are on Harvard’s faculty, go for it. But don’t say you weren’t warned.

Capitol Police Officer Identified

By Mike Huckabee

Thursday, NBC News aired an interview with Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd, who has now been identified as the cop who shot and killed pro-Trump protester Ashli Babbitt on January 6th. In a disgustingly self-serving appearance, Byrd declared that he acted “with the utmost courage” and saved lives in shooting Babbitt, who was unarmed and didn’t appear to be threatening him at the time.

While this was surely intended to shore up Nancy Pelosi’s unraveling “insurrection” narrative, a lot of viewers didn’t buy it. Podcaster Matt Walsh summed it up this way on Twitter: “An utterly grotesque interview. Make this a white cop shooting a BLM rioter and the whole country would be on fire right now.”

But for the sharpest reaction, you need to read what Babbitt’s husband Aaron had to say about it.

    Why would any American listen to any general on a tv outlet when a marine general asked for accountability and was immediately fired so any information a general puts out is with constraints and is told what to say per commander in chief and we know he does not repeat not tell the truth
