    At least no one can say that the January 6 committee didn’t have an impact! Greg Abbott, Kristi Noem, Henry McMaster, and their families will have to guard against identity theft for the rest of their lives, thanks to the committee’s work in exposing their Social Security numbers. How many numbers got exposed? “Around 1900” of them, according to the Washington Post, which came from White House visitor logs supplied to the committee. The J6 committee failed to redact those from a spreadsheet released to the public as part of its final report on the riot. Ben Carson, a Trump...

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott ripped New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ claim that the Lone Star State governor is a “madman” for busing border crossers to the Big Apple — saying Hizzoner “could not last a week in Texas” handling its migrants. New York City’s frustrated Democratic chief executive had warned during a town hall last week that the recent flood of asylum seekers into the Big Apple would “destroy New York City” — and called the Republican gov a “madman” for transporting thousands of migrants from his border state to liberal cities such as Gotham. Abbott fired back on...

    The Biden Administration is taking steps to undermine Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's (R-TX) actions to keep illegal aliens out of the U.S. The state's top land official called out the Biden Administration's proposed federal protection for two Rio Grande mussel species as a "political" game to stop Abbott from deploying his buoys in the U.S.-Mexico water border. "Unfortunately, the Biden administration is turning the Endangered Species Act into a political tool to push an agenda rather than ensuring true conservation efforts are implemented," Texas General Land Office Commissioner Dawn Buckingham said in a statement. "This administration is proposing to roll...

    Democrats are working overtime to make it so painful for attorneys to represent Republicans in election cases that the next candidate will be unable to find lawyers willing to battle on their behalf.A state court judge refused to halt the Texas Bar’s assault on Attorney General Ken Paxton for his decision to challenge several swing states’ execution of the 2020 election in Texas v. Pennsylvania, a little-noticed perfunctory order published in late January revealed. While the partisan targeting of Paxton represents but one of the many attempts by Democrats to weaponize state bars to dissuade attorneys from representing Republicans, court...

    The temporary restraining order also applies to any families who are members of the LGBTQ organization PFLAG. The judge said the investigations can cause "immediate and irreparable injury," including, "gross invasions of privacy in the home and school, and the resulting trauma felt by parents, siblings, and other household members," as well as negative impacts on grades and school activity, fear and anxiety and "increased incidence of depression." The investigations, carried out by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), come after state Attorney General Ken Paxton released a non-legally binding opinion earlier this year declaring providing gender-affirming...

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is accused of impeachable offenses including bribery tied to helping a woman with whom he allegedly had an affair get a job through Austin real estate investor Nate Paul. His wife, state Sen. Angela Paxton, may soon decide whether he deserves to be removed from office for that and other alleged violations of law and the public trust, which were released Thursday night by a Texas House committee.

    It’s sickening how much Big Pharma bosses have profited from the COVID-19 pandemic, after overselling billions of people around the world on the wondrous qualities of their vaccines. Moderna chief executive Stéphane Bancel made nearly $400 million last year on his stock options and still owns a reported $2.8 billion of shares in the company plus his salary and perks. His Pfizer counterpart, Albert Bourla, pocketed a $33 million salary last year, on top of the millions in Pfizer shares he sold. But before they ride off into the sunset to count their filthy lucre, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton...

    'This is an important victory protecting the people of Texas from destructive federal overreach,' Texas attorney general says A federal judge blocked the Biden administration from implementing environmental regulations redefining how water sources are protected, but which opponents have argued were an example of overreach. In his decision published late Sunday, Judge Jeffrey Brown ruled that the so-called Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule announced by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in late December "poses irreparable harm" to residents of Texas and Idaho, the two states that challenged the regulations in the lawsuit filed on Jan. 18.

The complaint challenges the constitutionality of the NFA and the Gun Control Act of 1968 to regulate privately made silencers/suppressors/gun mufflers made and kept in Texas. The amendment incorporates the Second Amendment decision by the Court in Bruen, which establishes a refined and clarified procedure for courts to use in Second Amendment cases.The Texas case came into existence as part of the requirements of HB 957, which became law in Texas...

    xas RINOs are attempting to remove Attorney General Ken Paxton through an impeachment vote by alleging some weak corruption charges that center around allegations of aiding a wealthy political donor, conducting a sham investigation against whistleblowers, and covering up his wrongdoing in a separate federal securities fraud case against him. Ken Paxton is a staunch conservative and a strong supporter of former President Trump. The real reason they want to impeach Paxton could have something to do with this: Why are they trying to impeach Texas Attorney General @KenPaxtonTX?

    Is this it for Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton? It sure looks like he is on his way out. He received an overwhelming vote of no-confidence Saturday in the Republican-led state House of Representatives. This led to an immediate suspension. Now the vote moves to the state Senate. Will that conservative body vote the same way an overwhelming majority of their colleagues in the House voted?Even casual observers of Texas politics should not be surprised at these developments. It’s been coming for a while. Paxton came into office as attorney general in 2015 under a cloud. He was indicted on...

    The Texas House of Representatives has voted to impeach Attorney General Ken Paxton, an unprecedented move following a legislative probe that faulted the third-term Republican for a yearslong pattern of corruption, including abusing his office’s powers, retaliating against whistleblowers and obstructing justice. Under state law, Paxton is now temporarily suspended from his duties as attorney general and will await a Senate trial. The vote was 121-23, with two members voting “present.” “The evidence is substantial. It is alarming and unnerving,” said GOP Rep. Andrew Murr, chair of the General Investigating Committee, during his closing statement following hours of debate. The...
