But this time they have to prove it in a real court, not the DOJ kangaroo court.
Just using their own insanity as a weapon. They are like drug addled petulant babies banging walls and screaming with their crazy cards to trump you and anyone in their way. F-n twilight zone to genocide.
Eric the Red and his sissy-boy boss can kiss our collective Texas asses.
And what happens when you mess with Texas?
Of course. Waste our taxpaying dollars on the stuff that doesn’t matter.
I speak pig latin but didn’t know there was an official group. Where do I sign up for membership and how soon will I get a card? Maybe Holder can make the membership card my voter ID card.
Last I heard was immigrants had to learn English to get US citizenship. Although how difficult is it to recognize the name of your candidate? Are we going to now have to print the names in Arabic or Chinese or a dozen other languages to appease Holder?
They will tell you to not to mess with Texas again
A person needs a photo ID to:
1. Buy any tobacco product
2. Buy any alcoholic product
3. Buy any type of firearm
4. Buy any ammunition for that firearm
5. Drive an automobile
6. Open a bank account or even access that bank account
7. Get a mortgage or loan of any type
8. Get insurance of any type
9. Get enrolled in college or university
10. Buy any type of glue, spray paint, fingernail polish remover or other flammable liquid
11. Use a credit card
I’m sure there are many others that I can’t think of just now...............BUT NOT TO VOTE?..............
Come and get some you lying, cheating, racist, elitist, communistic trash.
In a narrow decision, the justices invalidated a portion of the law that required a number of Southern states with a history of voter suppression to clear all new voting regulations with the federal govt. The court ruled that the criteria are outdated and gave Congress the option of updating it...... lawsuits have already been filed by other groups challenging the NC law.
Jerome Corsi writes in his book "What Went Wrong" in 2012-----that swing state Dem voter fraud is a fact of life unless voter ID happens. Dems also steal elections w/ early voting and by bussing in voting hordes.
The Holder Justice Department is the closest thing Americans have yet seen to the "Justice" system under the Nazis in Germany. Holder, of course, is still frustrated by not having such worthies as a Heinrich Himmler to carry out his orders; but the Departments of some of his fellow cabinet officers may be moving in that direction.
I jes’ get this mental picture of a guy ... must be a ranger .. looking into a suit’s eyes .. jes, kind’a .. “are you still here” look ... and totally ignoring him.
You get the horn - right where the sun don't shine.
So only speaking Spanish makes you a victim minority, worthy of special rights?
Gee...I remember when Civil Rights were about characteristics you were born with, and could do nothing about.
Like the color of your skin. Not the color of your shirt this morning.
Just last night the tv news in Austin was banging the drum about whether AG Greg Abbott was spending too much time and money suing the FedGov. I wonder (he says, pensively stroking his chin) if the two things are related.
You would think that this issue was settled already:
WASHINGTON The Supreme Court upheld Indianas voter-identification law on Monday, declaring that a requirement to produce photo identification is not unconstitutional and that the state has a valid interest in improving election procedures as well as deterring fraud.
Text of the Opinion
In a 6-to-3 ruling in one of the most awaited election-law cases in years, the court rejected arguments that Indianas law imposes unjustified burdens on people who are old, poor or members of minority groups and less likely to have drivers licenses or other acceptable forms of identification. Because Indianas law is considered the strictest in the country, similar laws in the other 20 or so states that have photo-identification rules would appear to have a good chance of surviving scrutiny.
When voter ID and open primary voting is addressed, we know Texas is still to be taken seriously, but boy have we been infiltrated. Texas still has the same blinders on as does the nation on Education, Common Core and generations of Marxist curriculum, beginning Monday, when the doors open down the block.
What pol has e even addressed this. Not. One. Person.
Can Texas appeal directly to SCOTUS to have the lawsuit thrown out due to SCOTUS' April 2008 ruling?
The departments complain[t] alleges that the Texas Voter ID law was adopted with the purpose, and will have the result, of denying or abridging the right to vote on account of race, color, or membership in a language minority group.
This is an insult that I’d like to see Gov. Rick to address this to the National media in a very angry manner. Specifically to the Obama and Holder; tell them apologize first and drop your lawsuit second. Let ‘em know that we want HONEST elections not the games played across the nation in 2012.
You don’t say.
12. To be a manicurist
13. To be a hair stylist
14. To get a liquor license
15. To open a bank account and cash a check at your OWN bank
15A says: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.”
The 2A says the very same thing about weapons yet we need not only ID’s but background checks and mental checks, etc. WTF!
In a way I’m hoping the courts support the DOJ on this then we have precedent to knock off government interference with our 2A rights.
If you get subpoenad to appear in a federal court, do not present ID. If they won’t let you in, sue the DOJ for infringing on your civil rights.
They have a fight on their hands. One they will lose.
I think the DOJ suit is all about publicity, not law. In the court, they will have their butts handed to them. Politically, it will be used as “proof” that racist America hates blacks...
If this is the official position of the Federal Government, then they better re-evaluate the policies of the TSA.
Absolutely my FRiend. And I believe the intent also is to keep the issue tied up in court to retain liberal gerrymandering to their advantage in 2014. This is how I ended up in the detestable Wendy Davis' state senate district. It's all good for them.
I remember a guy being interviewed on a national radio show claiming that the clintons were posessed.
the same could likely be said of bronco bama and michelle
Is Eric Holder also suing the IRS for suppressing the Republican vote by stonewalling tax-exempt status apps submitted by conservative groups? Crickets?
Rick should challenge Eric to a duel. On Sixth Street at High Noon. 100 Paces.
Pay Per View $$ will roll in
I’ve always thought Hillary is a serious high ranking witch. Way into occult; The whole bunch are into this stuff at some level and have opened pathways for possession. Hitler was way into theosophy and the occult and homoperversion has always been endemic alongside of tyranny. The government and media have always chosen to hide that aspect of Hitler’s Third Reich and Richard Wurmbrandt wrote a book about Marx and his occultic connections.
Islamic world has a huge amount of issues surrounding possession and jinns and talisman’s to ward off evil and the like.
“And what happens when you mess with Texas?”
A Texan put down the Ft. Hood Terrorist.
Technically, the terrorist was not messing with Texas: He was messing with federal people on a federally run property, and he did a bang-up job doing so.
It took a Texan to end his rampage.
So, to answer your question, a Texan shot the first obama-inspired terrorist.
"[Mark Levin] has done an incredible job of drafting these proposed amendments aimed at re-establishing the balance between the federal and state governments...let our national conversation begin, and let us thank Mark Levin for initiating it." (David Limbaugh, New York Times bestselling author of The Great Destroyer)
"Mark Levins The Liberty Amendments is the revolutionary blueprint millions of Americans have been waiting for...carefully and powerfully written." (Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator)
Mark Levin's book is a serious work that can serve as an action plan for curing what ails us. (Cal Thomas, The Washington Examiner)
Here are some of his chapter topics:
~ An Amendment to Establish Term Limits for Members of Congress
~ An Amendment to Restore the Senate (repeal of the 17th Amendment)
~ An Amendment to Establish Term Limits for Supreme Court Justices and Super-Majority Legislative Override
~ Two Amendments to Limit Federal Spending and Taxation ~ An Amendment to Limit the Federal Bureaucracy
~ An Amendment to Promote Free Enterprise (redefining the Commerce Clause)
~ An Amendment to Protect Private Property (curbing abuses under the Takings Clause).
~ An Amendment to Grant the States Authority to Directly Amend the Constitution
~ An Amendment to Grant States Authority to Check Congress
~ An Amendment to Protect the Vote (requiring photo ID)
While I dont agree with every single proposal, most of them are wonderful and its a great place to start a dialog and a movement. We need to get organized and get busy. WE CAN TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK FROM THE STATISTS!
