Today's Commentary: Democrat support for abortion rising -- Travel Ban update -- Martin Landau RIP -- Socialism trips to Venezuela -- Republican Obamacare failure
Interesting analysis of the trends in support or opposition to abortion over the past 20 or so years. Even though the nation as a whole is about equally divided on the issue, support for abortion among Democrats has risen to 71%. The party faithful have gone so far into the "pro-choice under all circumstances" tank that a moderate Democrat with views like those of the more pro-life Independents that Dems need to attract could never hope to win a Democratic nomination.
Democrats who wonder why they keep losing, and blame it on everything from sexism to Russia, might want to consider that maybe they're becoming like the mock rock group, Spinal Tap: they aren't losing their audience. Their appeal is just becoming "more selective."
Travel ban update
By Mike Huckabee
The Trump Administration is seeking to bypass the Ninth Circus Court of Appeals and go directly to the Supreme Court to overturn the federal judge in Hawaii who thinks he has the power to rewrite SCOTUS rulings. In this case, to declare that the Trump travel ban that was upheld on all but close family members applies to everybody from in-laws to third cousins twice removed (I assume that includes even those twice removed from the US by ICE).
Let's hope the SCOTUS acts immediately. This judge not only should be overturned, he should be removed from the bench until he can pass a test on the federal judicial system organizational chart and realize that he's at the bottom of it.
Martin Landau RIP
By Mike Huckabee
One of Hollywood's best and most well-liked actors, Martin Landau, died Saturday in Los Angeles at 89. His acting career spanned over six decades: In the '50s, he appeared in "The Twilight Zone" and Hitchcock's "North By Northwest," leading to multiple Emmy nominations for playing the master of disguises on "Mission Impossible" in the '60s. After that, he suffered a long period of bad roles before reemerging as a great character actor in such films as "Tucker," "Crimes and Misdemeanors" and his Oscar-winning role as Bela Lugosi in "Ed Wood."
But one fascinating fact that many fans might not know is that he didn't start out as an actor. He wanted to be a newspaper cartoonist, and he not only pursued it, he was very successful at it. It's dismissed with one line in most of his obituaries, but here's a very interesting interview with Landau by comic book writer and historian Mark Evanier, in which Landau talked about his little-known days as a cartoonist and his love for comic strip artistry.
Socialism trips to Venezuela
By Mike Huckabee
This might be funny if it weren't so chilling: a reporter from Campus Reform asked college students their opinion of socialism. Proving that they were paying attention in class when their professors were spouting leftist idiocy, they wax rhapsodic about how great socialism would be in America. It would spread the wealth and make things fairer. It's just gotten a "bad rap." But then comes the second question: What, exactly, is socialism?
Might I make a modest proposal that college students who think socialism is a great idea should be encouraged to take a field trip to Venezuela? One suggestion, though: they might want to take along their own food. And toilet paper. And a bulletproof vest, in case they have any interactions with representatives of the benevolent socialist government.
Republican Obamacare failure
By Mike Huckabee
Some Republicans are starting to talk about working with Democrats to bail out the floundering exchanges and save part of Obamacare. But that would be an utter betrayal of their promise to voters to repeal Obamacare and come up with a market-based alternative that brings back consumer choice and lowers premiums.
As Rand Paul points out, Obamacare was a predictably (some think deliberately) unworkable money sink from day one. It's collapsing of its own accord, and the last thing Republicans should do is try to prop it up by throwing bales of taxpayer money at it. We have enough big government entitlement programs sucking the taxpayers dry already, and in case they've forgotten, we already have a $20 trillion national debt. As for this growing idea that some form of single-payer government health care is "inevitable" so we might as well go along with it, I'd suggest they look at the example of Charlie Gard and his parents and remember why Americans think decisions about their health should belong to patients, not DC bean-counters.

Muslim Brotherhood Leads Calls for "Intifada" Against Israel
by IPT News • Jul 17, 2017
https://www.investigativeproject.org/6418/muslim-brotherhood-leads-calls-for-intifada The Muslim Brotherhood called for an "Islamic Intifada" – a violent uprising – against Israel Friday following the day's deadly Palestinian terrorist attack in Jerusalem.
"The Muslim Brotherhood calls upon the sons of the Islamic Umma (nation), its Ulema (Muslim religious scholars), figures and blocs for an Intifada in order to stop the (alleged Israeli) violations of holy sites...," the Brotherhood wrote on its official Arabic-language website and translated by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT).

Subject: Daniel Greenfield's article: America is Not a Nation Ruled by Judges
Posted: 14 Jul 2017 07:10 PM PDTWhen President Trump tweeted that his measure to protect Americans from Islamic terror was a "travel ban" and that it should never have been watered down, he was right.
Calling it a pause hasn't appeased a single of the radical judges abusing their authority. It doesn't matter what the lawyers call it, when courts insist on referencing President Trump's campaign rhetoric instead. Watering down the ban achieved nothing. The judicial coup can't be appeased with a "moderate" ban.
Stripping Iraq from the list of countries undermined the effectiveness of the measure considering that the vast majority of refugees being investigated for terror links in this country are Iraqis.
Most of the rest are from the other countries listed on the travel ban.
And the failure to protect Middle Eastern Christians by prioritizing them as refugees is a left-wing war crime. The lawyers, activists, media bosses and judges responsible for it have blood on their hands. Even as they mouth hollow platitudes about compassion, they have become complicit in Islamic genocide.
Waiting on the Supreme Court didn't work. The temporary compromise measure violated presidential authority while giving the left the room it needed to continue its judicial coup by expanding "prior relationship" to mean anything while unconstitutionally undermining the refugee cap.
There are legitimate debates about the limits of presidential authority in every administration. It's fair to question whether any president, of any party, should be able to engage in military action without Congress because the Constitution grants the legislative branch the authority to declare war. But there can be no doubt whatsoever that President Trump is acting within his legal authority under the Immigration and Nationality Act which grants him the authority to "suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants" for as long as he thinks it's necessary.
Obama made use of this power to temporarily halt Iraqi migration. So have other presidents in the past. Immigration is in the hands of Congress and the White House. It is not up to judges to decide who can come to America.
Our entire system of immigration "discriminates" based on religion and national origin. It allots visas and refugee status based on national origin and membership in persecuted religious groups.
If the judicial coup succeeds, elected officials will lose their authority over immigration. And that means that the American people will lose all control over immigration.
The implications go far beyond the travel ban.
Judge Derrick Watson, an Obama pal, didn't just go after the ban, but asserted that he had the authority to decide how many refugees should be allowed in. The Supreme Court chose to split the difference there. It's a short hop and a skip from there to judges deciding that they have the constitutional authority to set the annual number of refugees and immigrants to prevent "discrimination" by the elected branches.
If you want to imagine the end of America, that's a good place to start.
Federal courts have been unconstitutionally treating states like this for far too long, intervening in everything from elections to prison populations, but now they're using the general anti-Trump hysteria to assert judicial supremacy over the elected branches of government.
If this judicial coup is allowed to stand, anything that any White House official or member of Congress says at any time in the past, can and will be used by Federal courts to seize control over any policy.
And then we will be living under a permanent reign of judicial terror.
This was the nightmare loophole that opened up when we declared that preventing discrimination was such a compelling interest that it could be used to override nearly everything else. Now the legal butcher's bill might be coming due. And when it arrives, the Bill of Rights will cease to exist and the elected branches of government will wither under the shadow of black robes and falling gavels.
That is what is at stake here.
President Trump isn't just defending us against Islamic terror. It's up to him to defend government of the people against two political coups; one that seeks to reverse the results of the election with a manufactured scandal based on a Hillary conspiracy theory and the other that aspires to make elections irrelevant through a judicial ruling class.
A civil war is underway. Trump, like Lincoln, isn't just fighting an elitist Democrat ruling class embedded in secessionist enclaves of gated communities surrounded by political plantations of minority poor.
Both Republican presidents had to face off in a civil war against judicial supremacy.
During the Lincoln-Douglas debates, Abraham Lincoln asserted that the decision of the Supreme Court in the Dred Scott case did not suffice to "have the citizen conform his vote to that decision; the member of Congress, his; the President, his use of the veto power".
Lincoln then quoted Thomas Jefferson's warning that, "to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions" would be "a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy".
And that is exactly what judicial supremacy has done.
Thomas Jefferson cautioned that judges have "the same passions for party, for power" and "their power is the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control."
He stated firmly, "The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that, to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign with themselves."
Both the first Democratic-Republican and the first Republican presidents rejected judicial supremacy. They did so because it undermined a government of the people and imposed a judicial oligarchy.
What of the first Democrat president? In his veto of the Bank of the United States, President Andrew Jackson affirmed Jefferson's "co-equal" and "co-sovereign" principle stating that, "the Congress, the Executive and the Court must each for itself be guided by its own opinion of the Constitution."
Jackson's portrait now hangs over President Trump in the Oval Office. It is up to Trump to defend Jefferson, Jackson and Lincoln's understanding of the Constitution against judicial supremacy.
For too long the conservative position has been that we must defend the Constitution from judicial activism by putting the right sort of men on the Supreme Court. This approach has been somewhat successful. But trying to solve the abuse of judicial authority with judicial authority is like plugging a leak with water. Conservatives seek judicial saints who will never overstep the boundaries of their power while the left merely needs to find judges who will have no compunction about abusing their authority.
That is the judicial coup which has placed us in a political stalemate. Conservatives hope that the Supreme Court will follow the Constitution. And if it doesn't, a whole new "law of the land" appears.
Even if the Supreme Court does the right thing, the challenges won't end. And the judicial coup will have proven that its members can freeze any presidential policy for the better part of a year while the administration runs a gauntlet of political appointees who deliberately humiliate and undermine it.
And they won't stop now.
Conservatives should continue seeking judges who will respect the Constitution. But truly respecting and protecting the Constitution means rejecting judicial supremacy. And the battle against judicial supremacy can't be fought and won in the courts. Only the White House can defy the courts.
The Civil War was fought over the supremacy of the Constitution. Then, as now, the Democrat secessionists privileged the Supreme Court's interpretation over the written text of the Constitution.
In his inaugural address, President Lincoln opposed judicial supremacy, warning that if government policy for the entire country is "irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court... the people will have ceased, to be their own rulers."
During the Civil War, he rejected a decision by Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Taney and arrested Judge Richard Bennett Carmichael. Judge William Matthew Merrick, an Associate Justice of the D.C. Circuit Court, was placed under house arrest and had his salary suspended. Merrick, like today's secessionist Democrat judges had attempted to undermine the war effort through legal obstructionism.
The Civil War should have settled the question of judicial supremacy. But Democrats snuck their judicial fetish through the back door until it has become the greatest threat to our rights and our freedoms.
And it must be defeated again.
Lincoln and Jackson defied judicial supremacy by rejecting its illegitimate authority. President Trump must do the same. The travel ban is within his authority. No serious legal challenge has been made to that authority. It is the legality of his motives that has come under constant attack, but the President of the United States is not obligated to justify his motives to a paternal court to exercise his authority.
By ignoring the courts, President Trump will restore respect for his authority, for the separation of powers and for the power of the people to rule themselves.
And he will be following in the tradition of Jefferson, Lincoln and Jackson.
The majority of Americans support his policy. The law, in both the legislative text and judicial precedent, supports his actions. As the death toll in Europe mounts, they are waiting for him to do the right thing.
