  • Rep. Thomas Massie: Congress has no authority to influence outcome of 2020 election

    "The text of the Constitution is clear. States select electors. Congress does not. Accordingly, our path forward is also clear. We mush respect the states' authority here," the statement said. "Though doing so may frustrate or immediate political objectives, we have sworn an oath to promote the Constitution above our policy goals." The seven Republicans began their statement by expressing outrage at the "significant abuses in our election system" through "reckless" adoption of mail-in ballots leading up to the November election. Trump and several other congressional leaders have complained of voter fraud tied to the widespread use of mail-in ballots...

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) reacted to the dismissal of his lawsuit against Vice President Pence on Saturday, telling Newsmax that a court's refusal to force Pence to overturn the presidential election results essentially served as a call to Americans to incite violence in the streets. "The bottom line is the court is saying, 'We're not going to touch this. You have no remedy,'" Gohmert told Newsmax. "Essentially, the ruling would be 'You have to go to the streets and be as violent as antifa, BLM,'" he added. Gohmert was referring to protests that at times became violent over the summer...

    We know that Texas rejected the use of Dominion voting machines for use in their elections about a year ago. I thought it might be useful to review the overall SoS report and the individual reports (x 6 qty) that went into this decision.

  • Texas Hospital Administers a COVID-19 Vaccine on Video. There's Just One Glaring Problem ... It's a Fake Injection

    Twitter Screenshot (@HotepJesus)This is rather inexcusable. The University Medical Center in El Paso, Texas, decided to televise COVID-19 vaccines for staff members. I am sure the leaders’ intentions were good. Showing medical workers taking the vaccine helps to increase confidence in the process and may encourage those hesitant to receive it.However, if you watch this video of this vaccination, the syringe is clearly empty. The black plunger is fully depressed when the person administering it correctly pulls back on it. The vaccine is an intramuscular, or “IM,” injection. When you give someone an IM injection, you pull back slightly to...

    A Texas family woke up last Wednesday to find their two cars lit on fire, and “Trump 20” spray-painted on their home after putting a “Black Lives Matter” sign on their yard. Jayla Gipson and Charles Crawford, who are black, told WFFA they suspect the sign may have triggered vandals to attack their home in Little Elm. “That sign was in my yard for less than two weeks and then all of a sudden we get a tragedy like this,” Gipson said. “I would have preferred they just take the sign. But to set the house on fire? That’s going...
  • Texas State Rep Wants to Make It Harder for Gun Owners to Defend Their Homes

    Texas state Rep. Terry Meza (D) introduced a bill that would make it harder for gun owners to use the state's "castle doctrine" against home invaders. The "castle doctrine" allows residents to use deadly force to protect their property. Meza's bill, HB 196, has already caused a lot of controversy and in a series of tweets on her Twitter account, she said it does not repeal the "castle doctrine," it only would "require a homeowner to exhaust the potential of safely retreating into their habitation before using deadly force in defense of themselves or their property." Meza says the reason...

    Image courtesy Dean WeingartenU.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Everytownlaw, the Bloomberg financed anti-right to arms group, is involved in a convoluted lawsuit filed in Houston, Texas.Texas statutes prescribe signs be posted on businesses if the presence of a person who is armed, in the business, is presumed to be trespassing. This is not unusual. The regulation of signs to give effective notice, especially in licensed businesses, is common. Posting of business licenses, for example, is often required.The lawsuit contends this is a First Amendment issue. Their logic is, the owners might post a different sign which would serve the same purpose; but...

    The State of Texas filed a lawsuit directly with the U.S. Supreme Court shortly before midnight on Monday challenging the election procedures in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin on the grounds that they violate the Constitution. 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. 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. Finally, Texas argues that there were...

Fort Bend County deputy Chad Norvell said deputies received several 911 calls of gunshots in the area. When deputies arrived, Norvell said one man was found with four to five gunshot wounds and was flown to the Medical Center in critical condition. Norvell said another person was shot once and taken to a...

    The Houston Federation of Teachers wants to go back to only virtual learning as classes begin again after the Thanksgiving break. However, the Houston Independent School District (HISD) says that students will return to online and in-person classes after the break. The teacher union asked HISD to revert back to only online instruction because of the recent spike in coronavirus cases. The Houston Independent School District is the largest public school system in Texas, and the seventh-largest in the U. S. The original reopening plan for the schools in the district noted that if the average coronavirus positivity rate was...

That is outrageous. And we're not talking about allegations. We're talking about it's been confirmed that that many more than 10,000

    Former President George W. Bush congratulated President-elect Joe Biden in a phone call Sunday and said that, while President Donald Trump has the right to pursue legal challenges and recounts, the 2020 race was "fundamentally fair" and "its outcome is clear." The gesture by Bush, the only living former Republican president, was a break from his party's outgoing president, Trump, who has so far refused to concede the race. In the statement, Bush said he had called Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on Sunday. "Though we have political differences, I know Joe Biden to be a good man, who...

    HOUSTON — Harris County's drive-thru votes will not be thrown out, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen ruled on Monday morning. It was a waiting game over the weekend for the fate of nearly 127,000 votes cast at drive-thru polling locations in the Houston area during early voting. A federal hearing was scheduled for Monday morning to rule on those votes with less than 24 hours until the polls open for Election Day. A conference call was set up for reporters to be able to listen in to what's being discussed at the federal courthouse, but many reported technical issues as...

    With 6,209,849 ballots cast, the GOP dominates the early vote. 53% GOP to 37% DEM. About 44% of all registered voters have voted. Youth vote as a percentage collapses to 11% of total votes from 19% in 2016. Recent polls have suggested DJT and Biden are tied. These are not accurate given the over 6,000,000 sample of actual voter data. https://www.toptradeguru.com/news/elections-2020/results/texas-early-ballot-returns-shows-polls-are-wrong/

Hawkins, Austin ¶ For respondent: Susan Hays, Austin REVERSED AND REMANDED, per curiam opinion: The issue is whether the Harris County clerk’s plans to send mail-in ballot applications to all county voters should be halted as illegal, beyond the clerk’s specified powers under the Texas Election Code, that will cause irreparable harm if not stopped. In this case the trial court denied the state’s request for a temporary injunction because it determined the Harris County...

    HOUSTON – Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner signed an Executive Order Monday authorizing a cite-and-release program for certain low-level, non-violent offenses, allowing officers to issue tickets for some Class A and B misdemeanors, instead of making an arrest. The policy change will go into effect Tuesday at 6 a.m. “The cite-and-release program has been implemented in other cities where it has helped to reduce jail population,” Turner said in a press conference Monday. He added that the move would “improve response times by getting officers back into service, more quickly.” “Cite-and-release is a more humane method of dealing with low-level offenders...
