The Chronicle’s shameless shilling for the pro-abortion lobby is mirrors the cold, emotionally vacant remarks of Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam on the subject of New York’s infanticide legalization statute:
So in this particular example if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” he said. “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.
One of the most powerful men in Texas has some choice words for the glorification of “infanticide” in modern America.
“It’s no longer abortion. It’s euthanasia, is what it is. You’re killing a person,” said Sid Miller, Texas Commissioner of Agriculture in an exclusive interview with Big League Politics.
“I never thought the words ‘post-birth abortion’ would ever cross my lips in this country,” Miller continued. “It’s a cruel world we are living in and we keep sliding down the slope. We’ve got to dig in our heels and stop the the slide. We can’t let this go on anymore.”
“And I think we’ve got a president who will do just that,” He added.
The story continues, alleging the promotion and promulgation of “five myths” by Republicans in the Texas legislature about “reproductive rights,” listing as “Myth #1,”
So-called ‘infanticide’ is a real problem.
The Chronicle fails to establish why infanticide isn’t actually a problem, however. What follows is hardly a refutation of the alleged “myth” and does nothing to factually discredit the claims of those who suggest “infantificide” is a growing problem in America.
Simply claiming that something is false without providing new information that establishes inaccuracy, does not rebut or refute anything. That’s “Logic 101” in any junior college.
Big League Politics illustrates the difference between simple contradiction, and actual refutation below:
GOV. ABBOTT: “The growing support for infanticide demonstrates a monstrous disregard for basic human dignity, and it is vital that we take a stand on behalf of unborn children and abortion survivors in the state of Texas.”
AUSTIN CHRON: “If you relied on the rhetoric from our Governor or any of the anti-choice politicians that masquerade as health champions, you’d think women or abortion doctors were murdering infants left and right after failed abortions. This dangerous and grotesque narrative stems from the right wing’s inflammatory push to falsely cast abortion as frequently occurring right before or even at the time of birth, as President Trump has implied,”
Nowhere in the Chronicle’s “rebuttal” of the alleged “myth” do they provide new data or facts that invalidate the claims of Abbott. Instead, we find nothing but meaningless fluff, that is — unsupported opinion.
And since the Chronicle passionately argues (with some merrit) that late-term abortions in Texas are a rare occurrence and all-but-illegal after 20 weeks, then it should be no big thing to double down legally and ensure that any attempt to normalize the post-birth medical murder of human fetuses surviving abortions that is now legal in other states, is met with harsh penalties, correct? If there’s no real problem, then why the heavy opposition to legislation merely clarifying that there’s no real problem, unless there’s actually a problem? some may ask.
In its report, the Chronicle suggests that the “Texas Born-Alive Infant Protection Act” (HB 16 and SB 23) “would interfere with the doctor-patient relationship and cast a chilling effect on doctors who may fear politically motivated pushback.”
For the record, were that accurate, any hypothetical pushback would be against “infanticide.” And since, the Austin paper says that’s not a real problem — a myth even — then it’s likely not something to worry about.
In short, there can’t be pushback by abortion-providers against something that’s not really a problem in Texas.
Betrayal? President Trump Flirts with DACA Amnesty
On July 10, 2020, President Trump announced that he would sign “a very major immigration bill” in the next month or so.
This bill would create a “road to citizenship” to approximately 800,000 illegal aliens who are under the umbrella of President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
In an interview with Telemundo on July 10, Trump said he is crafting an amnesty plan that would allow hundreds of thousands of DACA illegal aliens to stay permanently in the U.S. and eventually receive American citizenship.
Trump said that DACA proposal would be revealed “over the next four weeks.” The president continued:
I’m going to do a big executive order. I have the power to do it as president. And I’m going to make DACA a part of it. But we put it in and we’re probably then going to be taking it out. We’re working out the legal complexities right now, but I’m going to be signing a very major immigration bill as an executive order. I’m going to make DACA a part of it.
No, what I’m going to do is that they’re going to [be] part of a much bigger bill on immigration. It’s going to be a very big bill, a very good bill, and merit-based bill, and it will include DACA, and I think people are going to be very happy.
In the meantime, we’ll put it in, we’ll take it out… I think people are going to be very happy with it, but one of the aspects of the bill, which frankly, nobody knows about until right now because I told no other report[ers], so you have breaking news. Congratulations. But one of the aspects of the bill is going to be DACA. We’re going to have a road to citizenship.
Trump stated that the recent series of Supreme Court rulings have granted him “tremendous powers” over immigration:
If you look at the Supreme Court ruling, they gave the president tremendous powers when they said that you could take in, in this case, 700,000 or so people, so they gave powers. Based on the powers that they gave, I’m going to be doing an immigration bill. One of the aspects of the bill that you will be very happy with, and that a lot of people will be, including me and a lot of Republicans, by the way, will be DACA. It gives them a road to citizenship.
Trump’s comments came following the Supreme Court’s ruling from last month that the Trump administration cannot end Obama’s DACA program and would have to go through another set of paperwork to do so. Trump said he would quickly refile the paperwork to kill DACA at that point in time.
Trump criticized House and Senate Democrats for not cooperating with him on DACA amnesty legislation. He said:
I’m taking care of DACA. I had a deal with the Democrats and they broke the deal. The DACA could have been taken care of two years ago, but the Democrats broke the deal. All of a sudden they just broke it for no reason. Actually, they had a court case that slightly went their way, and they said, ‘Oh, let’s not talk about the deal anymore.’ You remember that. We talked about it.
White House Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere revealed that the president is crafting an executive order related to immigration.
As the President announced today, he is working on an executive order to establish a merit-based immigration system to further protect U.S. workers,” Deere commented.
“Furthermore, the President has long said he is willing to work with Congress on a negotiated legislative solution to DACA, one that could include citizenship, along with strong border security and permanent merit-based reforms. This does not include amnesty,” Deere added. “Unfortunately, Democrats have continually refused these offers as they are opposed to anything other than totally open borders.
John Binder of Breitbart News highlighted some of the implications of a DACA amnesty:
A DACA amnesty would put more citizen children of illegal aliens — known as “anchor babies” — on federal welfare, as Breitbart News reported, while American taxpayers would be left potentially with a $26 billion bill.
Any plan to give amnesty to DACA illegal aliens that does not also include provisions to halve legal immigration levels — the U.S. admits about 1.2 million legal immigrants a year at the expense of America’s working and middle class — would give amnestied illegal aliens the opportunity to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country.
Trump’s remarks were met with pushback from legislators such as Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who believe that Trump’s decision was unconstitutional
“There is ZERO constitutional authority for a President to create a ‘road to citizenship’ by executive fiat,” Cruz tweeted. “It was unconstitutional when Obama issued executive amnesty, and it would be a HUGE mistake if Trump tries to illegally expand amnesty.”
There is ZERO constitutional authority for a President to create a “road to citizenship” by executive fiat.

The political implications of such an amnesty could be massive.
Trump must reject DACA and actually implement immigration restriction policies such as ending birthright citizenship, ending chain migration, fully funding the border wall, and implementing an immigration moratorium.
