The Legal Fight Continues
Yesterday Emily Murphy, the administrator of the General Services Administration (GSA), authorized the Biden campaign to access federal funding and facilities in order to begin the formal transition process.
It was telling to see one of the reasons President Trump mentioned for allowing the transition to begin. The president tweeted:
"I want to thank Emily Murphy at GSA for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our Country. She has been harassed, threatened, and abused – and I do not want to see this happen to her, her family, or employees of GSA. Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail!
"Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country, I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same."
Murphy was being subjected to what Christians, pro-life advocates and other conservatives are routinely subjected too. She was being threatened and doxed, and the president didn't want her to face that any longer.
This is now the established pattern. You could write a book about the people the left has attempted to ruin simply for being conservative. Sadly, it works, and as long as it works the left will continue to do it.
This is a fundamental violation of the rules of a constitutional republic (not to mention basic decency), and we must come up with an answer.
But, as the president reiterated, this development does not in any way impact the ongoing legal challenges in a number of states. Those challenges will continue. The legal stumbling block so far is completely unrelated to when Joe Biden and Kamala Harris receive their transition briefings.
The main legal problem, as Rudy Giuliani has alleged, is that once invalid ballots were separated from their envelopes and put into the voter stream, judges who have heard these cases are confronted with a very extreme remedy – to throw out all the ballots that the tainted ballots were mixed in with.
I suppose a new election could be ordered under close observation. But those are very difficult legal remedies for any judge to order.
In the meantime, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals has agreed to expedite the Trump campaign's lawsuit against the state of Pennsylvania, taking the case one step closer to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Ready For Open Borders?
If Joe Biden becomes president, we know the Biden/Harris team will begin undoing many of President Trump's executive orders on inauguration day. But in some ways, it has already started to happen.
Sources in the Border Patrol and ICE report that many people are gathering at the southern border. When the October fake news polls showed a Biden landslide coming, there was an immediate uptick in the number of people attempting to cross the border illegally.
It's easy to understand why. Biden has already said he will end deportations, scrap virtually all of Trump's border control policies and provide healthcare to illegal immigrants. Border Patrol officials are warning of a coming crisis on the southern border.
By the way, Biden has announced that Alejandro Mayorkas will lead the Department of Homeland Security. Well, Mayorkas was the creator of Obama's DACA program, which instituted a quasi-amnesty by instructing immigration authorities to ignore existing law.
And here is an issue that our lying media will not report: The growing number of people who attempted to illegally enter the country in October are putting Border Patrol agents and Americans in border communities at increased risk.
Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan said last week:
"Against the backdrop of an unprecedented public health crisis, those attempting to illegally enter our country are actually increasing. The migrants themselves, what we're encountering, they know or highly suspect that they have COVID, yet they still try to illegally enter."
No one is pointing out that the open borders left is promising free healthcare in the middle of a pandemic while shutting down our businesses and churches. The responsible thing to do would be to shut down illegal immigration rather than our economy.
But once again the left is punishing hard-working Americans who know that businesses can't survive without consumers and profits.
Getting Tough On Israel
Yesterday we noted that Joe Biden intended to nominate Avril Haines to be his director of National Intelligence. In May, Haines signed a letter urging delegates at the Democrat National Convention to adopt a tougher stand against Israel.
The letter complained that U.S. policy was too pro-Israel. It condemned Israel's "ongoing occupation" of Palestinian territory and "settlement expansion." The letter also demanded "clear opposition to violence, terrorism and incitement from all sides."
First of all, there is no "moral equivalency" between the state of Israel and the terrorism and incitement from the Palestinian Authority. To suggest that "all sides" are guilty of "violence, terrorism and incitement" is beyond disgusting.
Second, there are 600,000 Israelis living in these so-called "settlements." What Haines is really objecting to is Jews living in Judea and Samaria.
So, Joe Biden's director of National Intelligence thinks Israel is guilty of "terrorism and incitement," and that Jews have no right to live in Judea and Samaria. That tells you a lot about what the next four years could be like.
Parenting has never been an easy job, and it has only gotten harder in the digital age. We must be eagle-eyed about what our children and grandchildren are reading. And if they are reading Teen Vogue, there's a huge problem: It is filled with socialist poison.
The outlet recently published a column that condemns America for being founded on genocide and slavery. The column denounces America as "an empire," and declares, "At its core, America's values are white supremacy and capitalism."
Even Joe Biden's call for unity is rejected as "nationalist propaganda," with the author asking, "Why should people who have been systematically oppressed . . . be asked to hold hands with their oppressors?"
This is propaganda straight out of the Soviet Union or communist China! And it is being fed to children, indoctrinating them to hate our country.
