Top general: Texas has constitutional right to defend itself!

Days ago, the Supreme Court ruled that the feds could cut the razor wire installed by Texas on its border with Mexico to protect its citizens from an invasion.

But that ruling, according to Gen. Michael Flynn, a military expert, and President Trump’s early national security adviser, will be “one of the court’s most cowardly decisions” and it actually could “doom our nation.”

If it stands.

Because Texas has a right to defend itself.

He writes in a commentary at the Western Journal that the decision wasn’t just about razor wire.

”It was about the role of states in our federal system and the betrayal of the nation — first by a president, and now by two Republican-appointed justices.”

He noted it was Biden who demanded that the nation’s southern border be open for illegal aliens to enter, more or less at will.

”This statement was so absurd that we knew at once that this man who had somehow assumed the presidency was not on our side. Biden had just sworn the president’s constitutionally prescribed oath to ‘preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,’ and within hours he had flung open the nation’s borders to all comers,” he noted.

He noted media criticism of Trump’s plan to spend $11 billion on a wall. But he said Biden’s plan is estimated to cost taxpayers $451 billion.

”Biden opened the door, and over 3.8 million people walked through. That number of illegals is greater than the population of 22 states and is on the verge of destroying the nation in every way by causing crime, drug deaths, child trafficking, terrorism, deficit spending, and more. He could not have done any more damage to the nation if he had tried.”

The general said the ruling “deserves as much respect as its Dred Scott decision that no African-American could be a citizen, or its Korematsu decision that approved locking up Japanese-Americans during World War II, or its Roe v. Wade decision that led to the death of well over 40 million babies.”

A commentary at the Liberty Daily called the fight the most important political war in ages.

”I cringe when I hear about this or that being the most important battle in generations… except for now since I’m the one saying it. The battle between Texas and the United States government, between Governor Greg Abbott and Joe Biden, really is the most important political battle in ages. It’s not just our sovereignty at stake with a border invasion in progress. That alone is huge. It’s also the constitutional debate over state’s rights. It’s also the incessant question about judicial supremacy,” the commentary said.

It said, “What can be done? We need Texans to rally behind Abbott. We need other states to rally behind Texas. And this just may be a time when the people need to find a way around an obviously unconstitutional Supreme Court ruling.

Mathew Vadum at the Epoch Times said Abbott pointed out, “The Executive Branch of the United States has a constitutional duty to enforce federal laws protecting States, including immigration laws on the books right now. President Biden has refused to enforce those laws and has even violated them. The result is that he has smashed records for illegal immigration.”

Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, promptly praised him.

”This is the right position,” Mr. Roy wrote on X. “You have my full support to do what is necessary to protect Texas.”
