Friday News Roundup: Paxton Puts Down Democrat Insurrection in Austin as Biden Speaks to Blue States Only

Today’s Global Church of Climate Change Reminder: It’s a religious cult, not a scientific enterprise:

May be art of 2 people and people standing

How much more proof do you need? Seriously.

Note: If you’re waiting for an order from your Sock Puppet-in-Chief to tell you it’s ok to celebrate Independence Day, you clearly don’t understand what “independence” means. – That of course would apply to pretty much all Democrats these days, as they no doubt sat hypnotized before their TV sets and watched China Joe Biden read a text written by his handlers and tell them it will all be ok by the 4th of July and they’ll be able to hold “small gatherings” then if we all just behave like good little liberal automatons until then:

…and hey, if you just walk six feet away from the nearest member of your “small gathering,” he will – maybe – let you pull down the three masks you’ll be wearing by then to take a sip of your beer. Yay!

Well, guess what? We’re already doing all of those things and more here in Texas, and in Florida, and South Dakota, and North Dakota, and Montana, and Wyoming, and Kansas, and Iowa, and Oklahoma and in other Red states I’m not thinking of right now. As usual, the Sock Puppet was talking to his pals in the Blue states, because they’re the only people this great Divider-in-Chief ever speaks to in any real way. Hell, it’s all he is allowed to do by his abusive handlers.

But what about that insurrection in Austin? – Of course, here in Texas, the abusive Democrat mayors and county judges are attempting to rebel against Gov. Greg Abbott’s elimination of mask mandates, and City of Austin and Travis County officials imposed a mask mandate of their own the day after the Governor’s statewide order expired. But the Governor and Attorney General Ken Paxton are serious about eliminating such orders even at the local level; so serious, in fact, that Paxton filed a lawsuit in state court to force the leftist thugs to give up:

From the story at the Washington Times:

AUSTIN, Texas — Acting on his threat, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued Austin and Travis County officials on Thursday over their decision to continue requiring mask-wearing in public.

Paxton had threatened a suit after the local officials decided Tuesday to exempt the city and county from Gov. Greg Abbott’s lifting of the state’s mask mandate Wednesday.

In announcing their opt-out Tuesday from Abbott’s order, Austin Mayor Steve Adler and Travis County Judge Andy Brown said they were merely enforcing the COVID-19 prevention rules made by Dr. Mark Escott, medical director and health authority for the city and county, as they contend state law provided.

“Judge Brown and I will fight to defend and enforce our local health officials’ rules for as long as possible using all the power and tools available to us,” Adler said in a statement. “We promised to be guided by the doctors, science and data as concerns the pandemic and we do everything we can to keep that promise.”

Adler added: “We are not aware of any Texas court that has allowed state leadership to overrule the health protection rules of a local health authority.”

[End]

Fair warning: the judge in this case, Lora Livingston, is a Democrat, so you can be sure she will ignore the law and the constitution and rule the wrong way, because that’s what Democrat judges do, even in Texas. But Paxton and Abbott will prevail on appeal.

Are six abused women and thousands of dead nursing home residents enough for New York assembly Democrats? – It’s still far to early to tell, but at least the Speaker of the state’s assembly took the step of formally approving an impeachment inquiry to take place against thug Governor Andrew Cuomo, a fellow Democrat on Thursday,

From the story at JustTheNews.com:

ew York State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie issued a statement on Thursday saying that he is authorizing the initiation of an impeachment investigation into Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

“After meeting with the Assembly Majority Conference today, I am authorizing the Assembly Judiciary Committee to begin an impeachment investigation, led by Chair Charles D. Lavine, to examine allegations of misconduct against Governor Cuomo,” Heastie, a Democrat, said in the statement.

“The reports of accusations concerning the governor are serious. The committee will have the authority to interview witnesses, subpoena documents and evaluate evidence, as is allowed by the New York State Constitution. I have the utmost faith that Assembly member Lavine and the members of the committee will conduct an expeditious, full and thorough investigation,” Heastie said.

[End]

Now, understand that this “inquiry” will be led by fellow corrupt Democrats, who will no doubt do everything they can to rig it in a way that will lead to an outcome that avoids an actual impeachment. At least, that’s what will happen assuming that the facts and number of female accusers remain where they are today. You can expect this “inquiry” to conclude that some action short of actual impeachment – such as a meaningless vote to censure the Governor – is really all a serial killer-and-abuser-of-women deserves in a case like this.

You should also understand that this “inquiry” will focus in almost exclusively on the sexual harassment allegations against the Governor, and not on the deadly impacts of his COVID policies and his desperate efforts to cover them up. If you’re a woman, you should understand that the reason why the inquiry will have that focus is because Democrat politicians really don’t consider those allegations to be truly serious, and thus not meriting a severe punishment like impeachment.

The simple fact is that Democrat politicians look at sexual harassment in the very same way they look at illegal aliens – as political tools to be used to their advantage, nothing more. So, when completely unsubstantiated and frankly unbelievable sexual harassment charge are lodged against any Republican, like Bret Kavanaugh, you invariably see Democrat politicians and their agents in the corrupt news media rush to scream about their seriousness and spend weeks railing about them. But when totally believable charges complete with photographs are lodged against a Democrat, well, the women lodging them aren’t really taken all that seriously, are they?

To see the absolute truth in this, all you have to do is remember the progression of the whole #MeToo movement. That started out as a ball of fire, with every Democrat politician and Democrat agent in the media pounding on how crucially important it was day after day after day for weeks on end. But then, as it became clear that the main guilty the movement identified was this parade of Democrats, mainly leftist entertainment and media figures like Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin, Kevin Spacey, Andy Dick and Charlie Rose, and Democrat politicians like Al Franken, the whole thing just went poof! into the ether. Suddenly, this whole sexual harassment thing wasn’t really all that big a deal after all in the collective mind of the Democrat/media establishment.

The problem for Democrats in New York is that they will now have to focus on the sexual harassment angle in order to justify letting Cuomo off with a slap on the wrist. If they focus on thousands of needlessly-dead citizens and Cuomo’s efforts to cover them all up, well, that slap on the wrist just won’t be enough.

These are all Democrats, remember, including the media. This is what they do for each other.

Don’t shoot me – I’m just the messenger here.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: Biden Science is the Bestest Science but Gavin Newsom is Close Behind

Rand Paul assassinated the latest Democrat impeachment scam yesterday. – As I reported last night, the Senator from Kentucky pulled a deft parliamentary maneuver in which the Senate was required to vote on a motion to dismiss the case. Though that vote ended in rejection by a 55-45 margin, with 5 RINOs joining the 50 communist Democrats, that is far short of the 67 votes that would be needed to convict Donald Trump of this faked-up impeachment article.

The names of those five RINOs are as predictable as the sun rising in the East, and you can read about them and their latest act of mendacity at this link.

God Bless Texas. – As I also reported late yesterday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton won an initial victory in his challenge to China Joe Potato Head Biden’s executive order that would halt all deportations, even of violent criminal aliens. At Texas federal judge issued a 14-day nationwide restraining order in the case, following the precedents set by all the leftist judges during the Trump administration.

The practical effect of the order is to give the judge time to fully review the case and issue a final decision, but the symbolic effect is to send a shot across Biden’s rickety bow that some Republicans aren’t planning to just take all of the crap he slings around lying down.

Cool.

Today’s “Because Science” Look-in on the COVID-19 Pandemic. – It’s like magic!:

Note that January 7 was the day following congress’s approval of the Electoral College vote. Some coincidence there, huh?

Science.

Biden science is the bestest science. – Here, the new Swamp Sock Puppet President weighs in on the “science” behind wearing masks. It’s a real tour de force.:

Biden: “One congressman pointed out — he used a very color term to say — wearing a mask, I tell them to ‘kiss my ear.’ I’m not wearing a mask. Well, guess, what, not very American.”

Yes, friends, he really said that, and not a single reporter present asked for a clarification because they all know it would only get worse.

You just could never, ever make this stuff up, folks. Don’t even try.

Gavin Newsom science is the next-bestest science. – Presumably desperate because his high-dollar Napa Valley winery is bleeding money, California Governor Gavin Newsom this week joined the parade of Democrat governors who are suddenly thinking reopening their economies might be a good idea now that their party’s sock puppet is safely in the White House.

From the story at the New York Post:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday lifted the regional stay-at-home orders across the state — allowing restaurants to resume outdoor dining amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’re seeing a flattening of the curve. Everything that should be up is up, everything that should be down is down,” Newsom said at the press conference.

He said the hard-hit Golden State is “not out of the woods,” but its models suggest that it has overcome the most “challenging” part of the latest wave.

“We are in a position — projecting four weeks forward with a significant decline in the case rates, positivity rates — we are anticipating still more decline in hospitalizations and more declines in ICUs, and that’s why we’re lifting that stay-at-home order effective immediately today,” he said.

The state will return to a colored tier system that dictates restrictions by county based on the risk of community transmission.

The strict lockdown had been in place in the San Francisco Bay Area, San Joaquin Valley and Southern California — the majority of counties in the Golden State.

[End]

So, what has changed related to the pandemic in California? Not much, really, other than Biden’s inauguration. Despite all of the draconian lockdowns and mask mandates and business closures and job losses mandated by this despicable fascist thug, California’s performance related to COVID has been among the very most abysmal in the country, surpassed only by the grotesque results in New York and maybe New Jersey.

There was never any shred of “science” or “data” supporting Newsom’s thuggish approach – every decision he made was based on pure partisan politics. Millions of Californians have lost their jobs and hundreds of thousands have lost their businesses, but this ghoul has no regrets because his political tactic paid off, and that’s truly all that matters to any Democrat politician.

Trump just keeps on winning. – In one of the most epically hilarious moves of his entire adult life, Donald Trump yesterday announced that he has emulated Joe Biden’s creation of the fantasy “office of the President-elect” by creating his own “Office of the Former President,” complete with all the signage and seals that go along with an official executive office.

From the story at The Epoch Times:

Former President Donald Trump opened an “Office of the Former President” on Jan. 25 that seeks to advance the interests of the United States and carry on the agenda of his administration.

A statement from the office in Palm Beach County, Florida, reads: “Today, the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, formally opened the Office of the Former President.

“The Office will be responsible for managing President Trump’s correspondence, public statements, appearances, and official activities to advance the interests of the United States and to carry on the agenda of the Trump Administration through advocacy, organizing, and public activism.

“President Trump will always and forever be a champion for the American People.”

The announcement of the “Office of the Former President’ came shortly before the House of Representatives delivered a single impeachment charge to the Senate late Jan. 25. The “incitement of insurrection” charge claims that Trump was responsible for inciting an insurrection that resulted in riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

[End]

God, I miss this man, and not only because of his epic trolling talent.

FACT CHECK: Senator Cotton is right. But our designated sock puppet doesn’t care.

Sad.

Riot City Status Check of the Day. – Portland communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler was dining without the required mask and pepper sprayed an ordinary citizen who pointed that out to him Monday night, and nothing will happen to him.

From the story at JustTheNews.com:

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler pepper sprayed an unmasked man with a video camera who confronted him and former Mayor Sam Adams as the two men left a restaurant Sunday evening.

The two mayors had dined at the McMenamins Hillsdale Brewery & Public House and were leaving the establishment at around 8 p.m. when a middle-aged man appeared to accuse the Wheeler of dining without a mask, according to a Portland Police report released Monday.

According to the report, the two mayors informed the stranger that they had dined in the tented area of the restaurant where masks were not required, but that did not deter the man from following Wheeler to his car.

[End]

Wheeler told police – over whom he serves as Commissioner – that he and his partner were “afraid of getting COVID-19.”

Hey, dude, don’t mess with your ruling class unless you’re willing to take the pepper spray, especially as long as COVID is hanging around as a justification for their abuse of you and your rights.

That is America today.

Victory! Texas Wins Challenge to Biden Deportation Freeze.

Turns out that some Republicans aren’t just going to take all of this nonsense sitting down. – Throughout the four years of Donald Trump’s presidency, every executive order he issued was immediately challenged by Lawfare lawyers in the federal courts. The leftwing activists were clever about bringing their challenges in leftist-dominated jurisdictions like Hawaii, Oregon and California, where they had the best chance of drawing a fellow leftist judge who would rule in their favor.

Many had assumed that Republicans were too dumb and timid to play the same legal games when China Joe Potato Head Biden began signing off on the dozens of orders laid out before him by his elder-abusing handlers. Frankly, given the past behavior by the GOP establishment, that seemed a pretty safe assumption.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, though, is not a part of the GOP establishment. So, when Biden issued his order freezing deportations of illegal alien criminals, Paxton immediately filed a challenge to that order. Today, the federal judge who drew the case, District Judge Drew Tipton, issued a temporary restraining order that blocks the policy nationwide for 14 days:

From a story at MSN.com:

A federal judge in Texas on Tuesday temporarily blocked a move by new U.S. President Joe Biden to halt the deportation of certain immigrants for a 100-day period, a swift legal setback for his ambitious immigration agenda.

U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton, an appointee of former President Donald Trump in the Southern District of Texas, issued a temporary restraining order that blocks the policy nationwide for 14 days following a legal challenge by Texas.

The Biden administration is expected to appeal the ruling, which halts the policy while both parties submit briefs on the matter.

Biden promised on the campaign trail to enact a 100-day moratorium on deportations if elected, a proposal that contrasted sharply with the immigration crackdown promoted by Trump, a Republican.

[End]

Note how the story – published first by the hacks at Reuters – identifies Tipton as a Trump appointee, in stark contrast to the corrupt media’s practice of uniformly failing to made such identification of the Obama and Clinton appointees who issued nationwide restraining orders against an array of Trump orders. But hey, that’s just what the corrupt, Nazi-style news media does.

So, Republicans have their first court victory against this far-leftwing administration. Let’s hope and pray it is but the first of many more to come.

God Bless Texas.

No, It’s Not Time For President Trump to Stop

This decision is not what the media is saying it was. – As was always likely, the U.S. Supreme Court declined late on Friday to hear the case filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton challenging the election results in four states in which he does not serve or live: Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia.

The corrupt news media is reporting this result as if the Court ruled on the merits of the constitutional argument made by Paxton, which is that these four states clearly violated the Electors clause of that document by allowing changes to voting procedures to be made by gubernatorial and/or judicial fiat, rather than by their state legislatures, as the constitution clearly requires.  But the truth is that the Court did not rule on that aspect at all.

What the Court did rule was that Paxton has no standing to bring the case because he lives in Texas and not one of the four states being sued, saying that “we can only deal with fraud claims brought by the people from places where it actually happened.” While the Texas lawsuit did have the support of 17 other state AGs, none of those men and women happened to be from the states that were the subject of the lawuit.

Thus, even though the clearly fraudulent results in those four states swung the election to China Joe Potato Head Biden and his designated successor Kamala Harris, thus disenfranchising the 75 million Americans who legally voted for President Trump, the Supremes ruled that the AGs representing many millions of those Americans have no standing to bring the case.

That’s what actually happened.

Prepare for a parade of surrender monkeys this weekend. – The public airwaves and cable news channels will be filled with them. You can bet that the Mitt Romneys and Ben Sassy Sasses and Lamar Alexanders and all the slobs at the Lincoln Project and the Bullwark have had their agents hitting speed dial in desperate efforts to get George Stephanopoulous or Chris Wallace or Fake Jake Tapper or that little human weasel who hosts Meet the Press to give them 5 minutes on their Sunday morning talk shows so they call claim to be “right” about something or other and pontificate that it is time for Donald Trump to give up. Why, that would be all for the good of the country, don’t you know.

But would it really be “for the good of the country” for the President who knows this was a stolen election to just toss up his hands and ride off into the sunset? Would it really be “for the good of the country” to turn the presidency over to an elderly, declining lifelong circus clown who doesn’t know where he is half the time? Would it really be “for the good of the country” to surrender the country to the subjects of this meme that made its way across social media on Friday?:

Image may contain: one or more people, text that says 'DEC.21/DEC.28.2020 PERSON the YEAR TIME XIJINPING, JOE BIDEN KAMALA HARRIS CHANGING ING AMERICA'S STORY'

The only reasons that meme is funny is because so many people think it is actually what Time really did with its cover this week, and that the truth is that Time should have done that with its cover this week.

Is it really, truly in the best interests of the country to turn the presidency over to a guy who is so clearly and unambiguously compromised by the communist Chinese government? That’s the opinion that even Byron York, a defender of the President, stated in a late update to his Friday Daily Memo:

“On Friday evening, the Supreme Court rejected the president’s last big challenge, the lawsuit filed by the state of Texas against Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. There was no way in the world the court, at the behest of one state, would throw out election results in four other states. There was no basis on which to do it, it was not called for by the Constitution, and it would have set a terrible precedent that would surely plague our politics in years to come. In the end, the justices decided not to take the case at all. Only two, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas, said the court should have taken the case, but even they said they “would not grant other relief” and expressed “no view on any other issue.” With that, Trump’s hope of the nation’s highest court stopping certification of the election died.”

Byron York is not a disloyal fake Republican, unlike the clowns at the Lincoln Project and the Bullwark. He’s a smart guy, an actual conservative who generally exercises good judgment.

In this case, though, his judgment is wrong. This is not the time to give in to the surrender monkey faction of the GOP, and you can be sure President Trump is not about to do that.

Here’s what he said on his Twitter feed last night:

“A Rigged Election, fight on!”

Surrender is just not a part of Donald Trump’s personality, and he won’t be doing that today or any other day until all of his options have been exhausted.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Cotton Demands Special Counsel and China Apparently Owns MIT

Senator Cotton makes a really strong point. – Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton urged Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to handle the investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes, money laundering and other influence peddling activities around the world. Cotton notes that the circumstances create a clear and blatant conflict of interest where the Big Guy, China Joe Potato Head Biden is concerned, and that conflict of interest cries out for the appointment of a special counsel related to the case.

From a piece at JustTheNews:

“I know the Biden campaign released details of a tax fraud investigation in Wilmington,” said Cotton during the Fox News interview. “I think that was just to show maybe the least damaging part of the investigation.”

“There’s allegations of securities fraud and money laundering related to Hunter Biden’s Chinese businesses, a crooked hospital deal with Jim Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, out in western Pennsylvania. These investigations span multiple jurisdictions,” Cotton said, remarking that in the event that Joe Biden becomes the nation’s next president, “those prosecutors are in line to be fired next month. If there were ever circumstances that create a conflict of interest and called for a special counsel, I think those circumstances are present here.”

The Arkansas Republican said that the Biden family has leveraged Joe Biden’s government posts for their benefit in the past and would continue to do so if Biden serves as president.

“Look, the Biden family has been trading on Joe Biden’s public office for 50 years. Valerie Biden Owens, his sister, and Jim Biden, his brother, and Hunter Biden his son,” he said. “Do we really think that that will change if Joe Biden becomes president, the highest office in the land?”

[End]

Right now, the investigation is being handled out of the U.S. Attorney’s office in Delaware. Joe Potato Head Biden will no doubt follow the example of Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self and immediately fire all U.S. attorneys and replace them with leftist cronies whose first task will be to halt any potentially damaging investigations and cover them all up. The creation of a special counsel’s office would make it much more difficult, both politically and procedurally, for a Biden-appointed attorney general to come into office and sweep it all under the rug.

Sen. Cotton is absolutely correct in this instance, as he generally tends to be. But will Barr do the right thing related to this clear case of the Biden family peddling its influence around the world? His record thus far is certainly not encouraging.

After all, Byron York revealed yesterday that this investigation began way back in 2018, and was already ongoing when Barr took office. He has been fully aware of it since his first day on the job and chose to keep it all quiet for the last 21 months despite his knowledge that its existence was something American voters should know about given that Biden was the Democrat Party nominee for president.

I’m not advocating that Barr should have revealed the investigation as an October surprise. But Barr should have made the investigation public during the Democrat nominating process so that Democrat primary voters would be aware of the enormous ethical problem China Joe would create for their party. By withholding its existence and the strong evidence against not just Hunter but the entire Biden family, Barr heinously influenced the outcome of the general election.

Why, it’s almost as if Barr wanted Joe Potato Head to win. Go figure.

Meanwhile, on the election challenge front… – On Thursday 106 GOP members of the U.S. House of Representaives filed an Amicus brief of their own in support of the Texas lawsuit that challenges the clear constitutional violations that took place prior to the election in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia:

24 members of the Pennsylvania Senate and 68 members of the PA House did the same thing:

The Justice Foundation and the Amistad Project joined in the fun:

The suit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton certainly has a great deal of support.

But of course, not everyone is on board, including not a single Democrat or a single individual in the nation’s corrupt news media. Then there is RINO Nebraska Senator Ben Sassy Sasse, who yesterday snidely remarked (because everything he says is a snide remark) that Paxton’s lawsuit has other motivations.

From a story at Newsweek:

Senator Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, suggested on Thursday that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, filed a Supreme Court lawsuit attempting to overturn the election results in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in an effort to get a pardon from President Donald Trump.

Sasse suggested on Thursday that a lawsuit filed with the Supreme Court by Texas’ Attorney General Ken Paxton in a bid to overturn election results in four battleground states is an attempt to garner a pardon from President Donald Trump.

The Associated Press reported in November that Paxton is under investigation by the FBI over allegations that he abused his office in an effort to benefit a wealthy donor. That investigation came after seven senior staff members under the attorney general urged federal law enforcement in an open letter in early October to “investigate allegations [against Paxton] of improper influence, abuse of office, bribery and other potential crimes.”

“I’m no lawyer, but I suspect the Supreme Court swats this away. From the brief, it looks like a fella begging for a pardon filed a PR stunt rather than a lawsuit—as all of the assertions have already been rejected by federal courts and Texas’ own solicitor general isn’t signing on,” Sasse told The Washington Examiner on Thursday, commenting on the long-shot effort to overturn the election results in the four battleground states to benefit Trump.

[End]

And who knows? Sassy Sasse may be right – the lawsuit could be destined to fail. But are the 17 other state attorneys general supporting the lawsuit also looking for pardons? Are Sasse’s 106 fellow Republicans in the House all looking for pardons? What about the 92 Pennsylvania Republicans – are they looking for pardons? Do all of those Republicans and the myriad lawyers and witnesses who are fighting the good fight in all of these states where massive election fraud did take place have bad motives in Sassy’s eyes?

What a ridiculous thing to say. But hey, it’s Ben Sassy Sasse – ridiculous is his other middle name.

And on the China influence front… – No, this is not about Hunter Biden or Eric Swalwell and his honeypot, although it certainly could be.

No, this is about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and MIT, which refused to allow Sec. Pompeo to speak on its campus out of fear of offending the formerly respected school’s Chinese benefactors. I swear I do not make this stuff up.

From a story at the New York Post:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo unloaded on officials at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on Wednesday, accusing them of refusing to host him because they didn’t want to upset their Chinese interests.

Speaking at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Pompeo accused the Chinese Communist Party of “poisoning” the nation’s higher education system and said American schools were censoring anti-Beijing dissent because they were “hooked on Chinese Communist Party cash.”

“MIT wasn’t interested in having me to their campus to give this exact set of remarks. President Raphael Reif implied that my arguments might insult their ethnic Chinese students and professors,” Pompeo told the crowd in the Peach State.

“But of course nothing could further from the truth. These are the very people that this set of remarks is intended to protect, to protect their freedoms,” he said.

MIT is currently under investigation by the Department of Education for failing to fully declare foreign donations from the People’s Republic of China.

[End]

Oh.

This situation is already intolerable, and we’re about to have a pure China puppet in the presidency.

Pray for our country.

Thursday News Roundup: CNN Admits the New York Post’s Hunter Biden Reporting Was All True

So, CNN admits that the New York Post’s stories on Hunter Biden’s laptop were 100% accurate, then? – Sure seems like it, anyway. You all remember the New York Post’s original reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop and the contents thereon, correct? Remember how the story was spiked by every major corrupt media outlet in the country? Remember how users at Twitter and all of the other big social media platforms were denied the ability to share it? Remember how the Post’s accounts on Twitter and Facebook were shut down for weeks to prevent the newspaper from sharing any other new reporting on that story?

Yeah, it was all so October, the month before the election, of course.

Anyway, the news-fakers at CNN ran a story of their own yesterday, after the Biden fake president-elect operation revealed that China Joe’s creepy ne’er-do-well son was being investigated by the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s office for tax issues. The funny thing is, that CNN story, which came 2 months after the New York Post’s story that was supposedly too toxic to report back in October, essentially confirms every aspect of the Post’s story. But of course, CNN does all of that well after the election has come and gone.

Funny how that works, huh?

I’m not going to excerpt from the CNN story, because to hell with CNN and their compatriots in the corrupt, fake news media. But know that the CNN story also informs us that the FBI and DOJ “paused” their supposed “investigation” of Hunter and his magic laptop throughout the weeks leading up to Election Day because they didn’t want to “influence” the presidential election. Many in the corrupt news media employed the same excuse.

The point here is this: The DOJ and media, by refusing to investigate or report on the laptop DID influence the election, and influenced it massively in Joe Potato Head Biden’s favor.

But that, of course, was the goal. Despicable people.

Speaking of ne’er-do-well Democrats… – It looks like farty Eric Swalwell is lying about his having broken off ties to the ChiCom honeypot with whom he was fooling around and paying back in 2015. From a story at RedState.com:

Swalwell’s defense, as he lays out during the luxurious tongue-bath CNN’s Jim Sciutto offered up, is that he’s had nothing to do with her since she fled back to China in 2015 and, being the patriotic, red-blooded American that he is, Swalwell claims that he has fully cooperated with the FBI and his cooperation was destroyed by the Trump administration who leaked the story of him banging a Chinese spy to the media out of revenge for his key roll in the impeachment fiasco. Or something like that. Swalwell isn’t really smart enough to sound coherent even under the best of circumstances.

That, however, may or may not be the truth.

Oh. Why would a member of congress continue to be friends with a ChiCom spy who got him into a full-blown FBI investigation, five full years after that supposed “investigation” took place? And, why wouldn’t the FBI, if its supposed “investigation” was really on the up and up, be investigating that clearly ongoing relationship between the congressman and the ChiCom spy?

The answers to those questions are a really very obvious, aren’t they? Occam’s Razor really does apply here. Think about it.

Turncoats. Turncoats Everwhere! – Ok, Mitt Romney has never been a real Republican, but President Trump’s ongong challenges  to the obviously-fraudulent election results in five states are really bringing the turncoats out of the weeds now.

Romney is the most prominent among them, because of course he is.:

Then there’s this from regular Fox News contributor Andy McCarthy, who is really getting on board with Paul Ryan’s new “turn hard left” program for the fading fake news channel:

Yes, that would be the “frivolous” Texas lawsuit filed by Texas AG Ken Paxton, the “frivolous” lawsuit that now has 17 other state AG’s signing Amicus briefs supporting it:

Hey, Andy, maybe you should think about standing down on this one.

Speaking of that Texas lawsuit, President Trump yesterday asked Ted Cruz to present the oral arguments related to it before the Supreme Court if the Court agrees to hear the case:

From the story at TheHill:

President Trump has asked Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) to present a case from his state’s attorney general seeking to invalidate the election results of several key battleground states before the Supreme Court should it decide to hear the suit, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

The lawsuit from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) seeks to void the vote certifications of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia and Michigan, arguing that the results are “tainted” by new election processes in those states.

The court has not yet agreed to hear the case on its merits and on Tuesday rejected efforts by pro-Trump attorneys to overturn the results in Pennsylvania in a separate case.

[End]

Texas AG Paxton would need to gain the votes of four of the nine USSC justices in order for the case to receive a full hearing by that body. Given that all of the states that are the subject of the lawsuit clearly violated the constitution by allowing changes to their voting procedures to be made by gubernatorial orders (many of which themselves likely also violate parts of the constitution) or by state courts absent consideration by their state legislatures, it seems likely that the suit will be heard.

If that comes about, Senator Cruz, while serving as Texas’s Deputy AG prior to running for the Senate, argued nine cases before the USSC and won most of them. It would be difficult to find a more effective and experienced advocate for the case, which President Trump also made clear yesterday that his lawyers will support via Amicus briefs.

Very interesting developments all around here.

The face of Mussolini in our time. – Bill de Blasio continued his fascist campaign of discrimination against his city’s Jewish community yesterday:

From a story at DailyWire:

Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warned an ultra-Orthodox synagogue in Brooklyn on Tuesday that he will shut them down “once and for all” if they continue to flout his lockdown orders.

During a Tuesday press conference, de Blasio was asked about a large indoor funeral held Monday by Congregation Yetev Lev D’Satmar, a prominent synagogue in Williamsburg that was also recently fined $15,000 for secretly conducting a large indoor wedding in November.

“If we see another confirmed situation in which an inappropriate event is happening in that same building, then we’re going to have to move to shut down the building once and for all,” de Blasio said, according to Gothamist. “That would be the next step if we see non-compliance.”

“I do think there’s an ideological factor that’s making things a lot harder,” de Blasio also said, seeming to imply that the Hasidic community’s continued non-compliance with state and city lockdown orders stems from their widespread support for President Donald Trump.

[End]

Notice all the loaded language being used to refer to the Hasidic Jews: “ultra-orthodox,” “ideological,” “inappropriate,” etc. It’s the very same sort of language pushed by Hitler and Mussolini in the 1930s.

These are very, very frightening times.

That is all.

Texas AG Paxton and Sen. Cruz Step Up to Fight Democrat Election Fraud

God Bless Texas for sending this man to Washington. – He is likely the least popular senator among his colleagues in the Senate, and there is a good reason why that is the case. That reason centers around the fact that Texas Senator Ted Cruz is never shy about challenging the status quo, or about upsetting the Senate’s country club atmosphere.

Cruz is a disruptor in the Senate, the uninvited guest to the wedding party who spikes the punch, turns over the bridal cake table or leaps in front of the gathered spinsters to catch the garter. He’s Vince Vaughn in “The Wedding Crashers” alongside Rand Paul playing the Owen Wilson part.

On Monday, Senator Cruz did it again, no doubt eliciting a heavy round of tsk tsks from the Susan Collins’s and Mitt Romneys of the world by tweeting that he’d be more than happy to present oral arguments to the Supreme Court in the Pennsylvania election case should the court decide to hear the case:

Cruz went on to say the following in three subsequent tweets:

Because of the importance of the legal issues presented, I’ve publicly urged #SCOTUS to hear the case brought by Congressman Mike Kelly, congressional candidate Sean Parnell & state rep. candidate Wanda Logan challenging the constitutionality of the POTUS election results in PA.

Petitioners’ legal team has asked me whether I would be willing to argue the case before #SCOTUS, if the Court grants certiorari. I have agreed, and told them that, if the Court takes the appeal, I will stand ready to present the oral argument.

As I said last week, the bitter division and acrimony we see across the Nation needs resolution. I believe #SCOTUS has a responsibility to the American People to ensure, within its powers, that we are following the law and following the Constitution.

[End]

For those who are not aware, Cruz has a strong history of arguing cases before the Supreme Court from his time serving as Deputy Attorney General in Texas. No one has any idea if the court will agree to hear this case or how it would rule if it does, but God Bless Senator Cruz for being willing to stand up while most of his cowardly colleagues are hiding in closets in desperate efforts to avoid taking questions from the press.

To think we almost lost this guy to Beto O’Rourke. Holy crap.

Well, this is a novel approach, at least. – Speaking of the Texas Attorney General’s office, current Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is using the office to join the crowded field of lawyers challenging the results of the November presidential election.  He is taking a novel approach, especially when one considers that Donald Trump easily defeated China Joe Potato Head Biden in the Lone Star State, an outcome no one is challenging.

Per former Texas Ranger Roscoe Davis, Paxton filed a petition directly to the U.S. Supreme Court late last night, claiming that this direct appeal to the USSC is valid due to its standing as the original court of jurisdiction in disputes between states. Paxton’s reasoning, if Davis is accurately summarizing the case, is that the states of Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution and the 12th Amendment by implementing invalid changes to voting rules and procedures via the courts or executive orders. This would make sense to any common sense reading of the Electors Clause, since it gives sole authority to son the subject:

The end around case has been put together by TX AG Ken Paxton suing GA, MI, WI, and PA at SCOTUS. Bringing this case across multiple jurisdictions gives it a straight lane to the SCOTUS.

This happened just before midnight tonight, will post documents soon.

Texas approached the Supreme Court directly because Article III provides that it is the court of first impression on subjects where it has original jurisdiction, such as disputes between two or more states, this is hard tactics.

The Great State of Texas argues that these states violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures.

These non-legislative changes to the Defendant States’ election laws facilitated the casting and counting of ballots in violation of state law, which, in turn, violated the Electors Clause of Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution.

Additionally, Texas argues that there were differences in voting rules and procedures in different counties within the states, violating the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause. Bush v. Gore 2000.

Finally, Texas argues that there were “voting irregularities” in these states as a result of these changes.

Texas is asking the Supreme Court to order the states to allow their legislatures to appoint their electors. If this is successful it opens the door for the next step.

The genius behind this is they don’t have to prove fraud, there’s no doubt there are “election irregularities” all that has to be proven is that they changed election laws by executive order and not by legislation as required by the US Constitution. Article II, Section 1 Clause 2.

All these Governors and Sec of States making these changes out in the open make the case pretty clear.

The Defense is going to claim it was a COVID Pandemic, mark my words, it’s all they got, it was their excuse for everything in every state.

Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 is really clear and there is no Pandemic clause.

Now when they start screaming Pandemic Crisis, all the libs that went out for haircuts and Napa Valley Dinners, and seen all over the media, claiming privilege, are screwed.

If you can go to the store, go out to eat, go get your hair done, do all the things the political elite were doing, while claiming lockdown and mask mandates, then you can get out and vote, no need for special circumstances!

Game set match.

The relief being sought has not only precedent (Election of 1836) it has constitutional verbage to back it up.

Not asking for the SCOTUS to throw out ballots, just follow the Constitution and the 12th Amendment of a Contingent Election.

[End]

All you folks in Georgia might want to pay attention to steps these Texas officials are willing to take to try to reverse what is a clearly fraudulent election result in your own state, and contrast it to the ongoing coverup being desperately implemented by your own Governor, Brian Kemp, and Sec. State Brad Raffensperger.

It is a very stark contrast indeed.

God Bless Texas.

Gov. Abbott Intervenes in Shelley Luther Case

This is what leadership looks like.

I decided not to cover this earlier in hopes Governor Abbott would decide to intervene, and sure enough, he just did.

Most are aware that a Dallas-area salon owner named Shelley Luther was sentenced to a week in prison yesterday by an abusive Dallas judge, after she defied Abbott’s order that her business was “non-essential” and opened it up briefly last week. Police intervened, cited her and ordered her to appear in court.

During her hearing on Tuesday, the judge in the case, State District Court Judge Eric Moye, agreed with her that the Governor’s order was technically unsupported by existing law. However, in a fit of pique after Luther emotionally told the judge she would not shut her salon down because she was trying to feed her children, the liberal circus clown – who was initially appointed to the bench by Texas’s last Democrat Governor, Ann Richards, in 1993 –  sentenced her to serve in a Dallas jail in which there have already been more than 200 cases of Wuhan Virus diagnosed.

That all happened late Tuesday afternoon, and I went to bed thinking that surely Governor Abbott would get involved here and act to reverse this idiotic decision, especially given the fact that, come 8:00 Friday morning, he is allowing salons like Luther’s to reopen all over the state.

Well, sure enough, at about 2:00 Wednesday, Governor Abbott issued this statement, which followed a previous statement issued by Attorney General Ken Paxton:

Paxton had earlier sent a letter to Judge Moye demanding that Luther be released from jail. As of this writing on Wednesday afternoon, Moye had not yet acted. If he has not relented before the end of the day, millions of angry Texans will expect further intervention by Abbott and Paxton.

Hopefully, Governor Abbott has learned a key lesson here: That even in the Red state of Texas, there are plenty of Democrat despots sitting around just waiting for an opportunity to abuse the citizenry if you open the door for such abuse. It was Abbott’s order in March that opened that door. He should keep that reality in mind if we end up seeing a second round of this Chinese plague in the fall.

Stay Tuned.

There’s Big Trouble in Houston as the Leftist County Judge Goes off the Rails

The Evening Campaign Update – Early Edition

This just couldn’t wait another couple of hours. In the 2018 election, the people of Harris County – the home county for the City of Houston – made the idiotic decision to deny another term to Ed Emmett, one of the finest County Judges who ever served in that capacity anywhere in Texas. Instead, in their not-so-infinite wisdom, Harris County voters elevated a 27 year-old Soros disciple named Lina Hidalgo to the position of leading a county with a population of roughly 4.6 million people.

Today, the tab for that massive bit of mindless stupidity came due, as young Ms. Hidalgo decided that it would be a great idea to lord her power over the public, now making it a crime to go outside without a mask covering their nose and mouth. Thus have Democrats now, in the span of just a few weeks, gone from screaming that masks are not an effective deterrent to the spread of the Wuhan Virus to making the lack of having one covering your face a criminal act punishable by a fine or arrest.

From a Houston Chronicle report on the Judge’s draconian edict:

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo on Wednesday will order residents to cover their faces in public, county officials with knowledge of the plan said, the latest effort by local government to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The new rules, which will require residents 10 and older to cover the nose and mouth when outside the home, will take effect Monday and last 30 days, three county officials said. Acceptable garments include a homemade mask, scarf, bandana or handkerchief. Medical masks or N-95 respirators are not recommended as they are most needed by first responders and health workers.

[End]

First, let’s note that Hidalgo issued this edict less than 24 hours after Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner informed the public that the city of 4 million had recorded only about 20 new cases of the Wuhan Virus on Tuesday, and no one had died from it.

The big question now becomes, who is going to enforce this order, because both the Harris County Deputies’ Organization and the Houston Police Officers’ Union have weighed in to question the order and indicate they would urge their members not to waste their time enforcing it.

This is a community whose law enforcement officers are already stressed to the max thanks to recent actions by Democrat judges to refuse to sentence many violent offenders to prison time, releasing them back into the community to commit more mayhem. As HPOU President Joe Gamaldi notes in his letter above, “Violent crime is up this year (murders up by 35%), property crime is up (burglaries by nearly 30%), and HPD officers are staffing testing centers across the city. We do not have time to be pawns in Hidalgo’s game of attempting to control the actions of law abiding, tax paying individuals of our community. Especially since this idiotic order, is possibly an unconstitutional one, from the County Judge.”

It is fair to note that Texas’s Republican Governor, the increasingly disappointing Greg Abbott, has the authority to step in and overrule Hidalgo’s edict, as does Attorney General Ken Paxton, who could quickly rule it to be unconstitutional. But Abbott’s lack of leadership over the past couple of weeks as he scrambles to cover his butt politically leaves Texans pretty much hopeless that he will do anything here. Paxton is a different story, though, and it would not be surprising if he were to decide to step in with a quick ruling, if for no other reason than to provide even more political cover for the hapless Governor.

In any event, there’s trouble, right there in the Bayou City.

That’s trouble with a “T”, and it rhymes with “D” and that stands for depraved, demented, despicable, disgraceful Democrats.
