Today's Commentary:  Scotus mostly goes Trump's way on travel ban -- A victory for religious freedom -- New Harvard poll turns heads for Trump -- Gowdy grills Johnson -- Democrat criticizes Obama (well sort-of)

 

It's not as much of a smackdown victory as those who care about the Constitution, separation of powers and national security might like, but President Trump did get mostly good news from the Supreme Court about his temporary ban on immigration from six terrorism-plagued nations. The Court will hear arguments in October, and until then, the ban won't apply to the plaintiffs or people like them; for instance, American citizens who want to bring their relatives to the US or students attending college in Hawaii. But otherwise, the SCOTUS granted the Administration's request for an injunction against the lower courts' stay on the ban, upholding Trump's order as it applies to foreign nationals who have no bona fide relationship with any American person or entity. The Court also barred nonprofits from contacting would-be immigrants and establishing a relationship with them purely to help them enter the US. Foreigners who have no connection to the US have no right to demand entry.

Hard to believe a legal concept that simple had to go all the way to the Supreme Court, but then, it came by way of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. Depending on them to stop idiotic, unconstitutional arguments is like using a butterfly net for a coffee filter. Or depending on liberal judges to keep terrorists out of America.

Sincerely,

Mike Huckabee

A victory for religious freedom

By Mike Huckabee

Another victory for religious freedom from the Supreme Court: the SCOTUS ruled 7-2 in the case of Trinity Lutheran v. Missouri that the state violated a church preschool’s constitutional rights by barring it from applying for a state grant for aid to resurface its playground with rubber from the state’s tire recycling program. The state claimed it was a violation of separation of church and state, but the majority wrote that “this Court has repeatedly confirmed that denying a generally available benefit solely on account of religious identity imposes a penalty on the free exercise of religion.” In other words, the grant wouldn’t be used to promote religion; it was just to resurface a school playground, and denying the school the same benefit as all other schools just because it has a religious connection is religious discrimination.

Interesting note on the liberal Justices: Sotomayor seemed to strongly dissent, Ginsburg joined her dissent, but in a hopeful sign for people of faith, Kagan voted with the majority in favor of the church school.

The SCOTUS also agreed to hear an appeal from a cake maker with religious objections to being forced to make same-sex wedding cakes.

New Harvard poll turns heads for Trump

By Mike Huckabee

Finally, there is a general sense abroad in the land that Americans, even many Democrats, are bone-tired of the anti-Russia hysteria, the “resistance” to the honest election results, the undermining of the legally-elected President, the violent rhetoric and now actual assaults on Republicans, and the endless investigations of investigations of nothing in particular. Democratic leaders are reportedly urging party members to dial back the over-the-top Russia talk after the Georgia special election became the Dems’ fourth decisive loss in a row since they tried to blame Hillary’s loss on a Russian conspiracy.

A new poll by that notorious right-leaning source, Harvard, confirms that Americans’ patience with political grandstanding, conspiracies and obstructionism is now as thin as a fashion model’s sandwich. It found that 56% of Americans want Congress and the media to focus on other things; unimportant little side issues like terrorism, the economy, health care, national security and jobs. Sixty-four percent think the Russia probes are damaging the nation, while 73% think they’re distracting Congress from more important business. Most Americans think that even if Trump or his staffers did do something inappropriate, it doesn't rise to the level of an impeachable offense. And 62% believe there is currently no hard evidence to support the whole Russian collusion conspiracy.

Of course, that last number could change. If all Americans would pay attention only to legitimate news sources and listen to the top intelligence officials and Congress members who have actually seen what the investigators of the “Russian collusion” tale have seen, then that 62% who think it’s just unsupported bull droppings could well be up to 100% by August.

Gowdy grills Johnson

By Mike Huckabee

Future historians may look back on the past week as the turning point when the public's impatience with Washington’s and the media’s obsession over the “Russia-Trump campaign collusion” conspiracy finally reached critical mass. The sheer weight of the countless anonymous “bombshell” leaks that turned out to be bogus may have finally snapped the camel’s vertebra. Millions of Americans (even many who didn’t support Trump and desperately wanted it to be true) are finally starting to accept that there is no “there” there and telling their elected representatives, “Drop this garbage and get back to work!!!”

Here’s a round-up of why this past week may have marked the beginning of the end of this feeble excuse for Hillary Clinton losing that's been inflated into a national crisis, or as some liberals claimed, “Treason!” (a crime they considered as passe as Blue Laws, until they thought they could accuse Trump of it.)

First, former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson admitted under questioning by Rep. Trey Gowdy that he had seen no evidence that the Russians changed vote totals or that Trump or anyone in his campaign had “colluded, conspired or coordinated with the Russians or anyone else to infiltrate or impact our voter infrastructure.” This made him the latest of a string of top intelligence officials to tell Congress under oath that they had seen no evidence of collusion, nor of Trump trying to obstruct justice by killing the investigation of the crime for which they haven’t been able to find any evidence in over a year of looking.

Democrat criticizes Obama (well sort-of)

By Mike Huckabee

The Obama-Russia revelations shook up the narrative so badly, even Rep. Adam Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee's top Democrat and a rabid partisan who can find an anti-Trump spin in any story short of “Heidi,” went on CNN and actually criticized Obama. Of course, he still tried to find ways to slam Trump, such as accusing him of hypocrisy for condemning Russian hacking now when he had asked Russia to hack Hillary Clinton during the campaign.

I’m getting tired of hearing that piece of fake news repeated as if it’s holy writ. One more time, for the record: Trump never asked Russia to hack Hillary. He made a sarcastic joke about her utter disregard for cyber security by saying that if the FBI couldn’t find the 33,000 emails she’d deleted, maybe the Russians could help them out. He wasn’t urging them to hack Hillary’s server (that would make no sense; by that time, it had already been scrubbed with BleachBit and smashed with a hammer). He was merely implying that they probably already had all her emails. Like all good jokes, it was funny because it’s true.

    With regard to your article that the SCOTUS ruled in favor of Trinity Lutheran church, for this I am glad. However, being a child of the 60s, I wonder, "How on earth did WE survive the menacing playgrounds with the hard blacktop surfaces?" Isn't resurfacing the playgrounds with a rubberized substance just another way of "softening up" our youth and making them "snowflakes". Maybe we should require them to wear helmets, and bubble wrap before entering the playground area (sarcasm).

    Speaking of "snowflakes", instead of telling them (beginning in preschool)
    "Everyone is a winner, there are no losers, everyone gets a participation ribbon" maybe we should be teaching them that in life you don't always get what you want, you might lose an election (just ask Hillary); you will be passed over for a promotion; someone else might get credit for the commissioned sale you worked so hard to achieve, but you weren't working the day the customer came back in the store and purchased the item(s) you were trying to sell them and even though you had given them a card with your name and the items they wanted to purchase, the sales person pocketed your card and kept the commission for themselves; or you may have been the bona fide winner in a race, but because you were a high school junior, they gave the prize to the second place runner because they were a senior and you'd have another chance next year, but the next year, because of budget cuts, the school didn't have a cross country team.
    We need to teach our young people to TOUGHEN UP, when you get knocked down, pull yourself back up with your boot straps, refocus and move on. Accepting the hard knocks life throws at you is what makes you stronger and in the face of defeat you won't need to retreat to a safe space, with teddy bears and coloring books.
