Recently the TX govenor called out the National Guard to oppose the ficticious invasion by U.N. troops. This winter they froze without power or water. Now the govenor has assumed powers of the legislature to not pay legislators in order to punish Democrat legislators for walking out instead of voting in the new voting restriction bill.

No need to miss a single moment of their antagonizing holocaust.
They also made buying a handgun as simple and paperwork free as buying a Snickers bar.

State sponsored cyberwar began with project Mt. Olympus from the bowels of the NSA. It was an invisible program that would infect any digital system. Isreal got a hold of it an used their version against its enemies. Sadly they made it visible. The program went worldwide in all its varients like Covid. Sure Irans centrifuges to make high grade fissible fuel spun out of control but the seeds of a new battle field of warfare had begun.

Now outsourced hackers can destroy a nation with a keyboard.
The US is sheepish in retalliation for obvious reasons.

The governor of Texas is an idiot - none of the other border states have managed to raise money to build it through donations either. It's all hype for disappointed Trump supporters.

And, think about it. The federal government is the agency that does the eminent domain to take property to build a wall. The first time Texas tries it the landowner will take it to court and win because despite being situated on the border, the state doesn't have the authority to build an anti-immigrant barrier at the border. I'd bet money on it.

The lack of federal voting rights protections returns US to the pre-Civil War era. Pres. Biden involked the words civil war but the path to have federal voting rights includes getting rid of the filibuster which was not mentioned in a speech in Philadelphia today.

Republicans want the right to overturn an election with or without evidence of fraud. It looks like they could get away with it no matter how strange it sounds.

Subject: 10,000 dollars if you turn in someones abortion
From: Donuel
Date: 13 Jul 21 - 07:51 PM

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/courts_law/texas-abortion-lawsuit/2021/07/13/e0cee10c-e33c-11eb-b722-89ea0dde7771_story.

Abortion rights advocates and providers filed a federal lawsuit in Texas on Tuesday seeking to block a new state law empowering individuals to sue anyone who helps a woman get an abortion, including those who provide financial assistance or drive a patient to a clinic.

Anyone can win 10,000 grand OR MORE as an informant!

A dozen states have passed laws banning abortion after about six weeks of pregnancy. But the Texas law, set to take effect in September, goes further by incentivizing private citizens to help enforce the ban — awarding them at least $10,000 if their court challenges are successful. Even religious leaders who counsel a pregnant woman considering an abortion could be liable, according to the lawsuit filed in Austin by the Center for Reproductive Rights, Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of several other groups.

Proponents of the measure, which had the backing of the Republican governor, cheered passage of the “heartbeat bill” as a landmark victory and denounced the lawsuit filed Tuesday.


But abortion providers say the law, known as S.B. 8, is unconstitutional and will subject them to endless lawsuits, shut down clinics and reduce services — and they say it will isolate abortion patients by undermining support networks for pregnant women.

“The state has put a bounty on the head of any person or entity who so much as gives a patient money for an abortion after six weeks of pregnancy, before most people know they are pregnant,” Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights, said in a statement. “Worse, it will intimidate loved ones from providing support for fear of being sued.”

Texas governor signs abortion bill banning procedure as early as six weeks into pregnancy

Although abortion patients themselves cannot be sued under the Texas law, a controlling parent, disapproving neighbor or abusive spouse could target the woman’s doctor in court to try to stop the abortion
Marva Sadler, director of clinical services for Whole Woman’s Health, which operates four clinics in the state, has encountered antiabortion protesters at work for more than 12 years and expects that she and her colleagues will be targeted by lawsuits.

“It’s really, really scary for me to imagine the people we pass through to go to work on a daily basis, who yell at us .?.?. now have the authority and ability to sue me at will,” Sadler said. “Not only is it an attack on the access, but it absolutely feels like a personal threat as well.”

A spokesperson for Texas state Sen. Bryan Hughes (R), who sponsored the bill, did not immediately comment on the lawsuit.

More than 85 percent of women who choose to terminate their pregnancies in Texas are at least six weeks into pregnancy, according to advocates, so the law would prevent nearly all abortions in the state, and operations at Sadler’s clinics would decrease, she said.

Similar measures that ban abortion after a doctor detects a fetal heartbeat, or around six weeks of pregnancy, have passed recently in other states, including this year in Idaho and Oklahoma. But federal judges have prevented those measures from taking effect.

The Texas law is more difficult to block, opponents say, because it is enforced by private lawsuits, not state government officials who are typically the defendants in federal constitutional challenges.

Instead, those behind the new federal suit are using a novel legal approach, taking aim at every state trial court judge and county court clerk in Texas, plus the attorney general and state medical boards.

They are asking a federal judge to prevent any of the state’s trial court judges, potentially more than 1,000 throughout Texas, from enforcing the law and to block court clerks from accepting the lawsuits.


Mark Lee Dickson, the director of Right to Life of East Texas, who has encouraged people to take action and offered to recommend lawyers, is also named as a defendant.

In a Facebook post Tuesday, Dickson wrote, “The only thing more ridiculous than this lawsuit is the fact that we have people, right here in Texas, who are fighting to end the lives of innocent unborn children.”

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) signed the legislation in May and celebrated what he called a victory for Texans.

“Our creator endowed us with the right to life, and yet millions of children lose their right to life every year because of abortion,” Abbott said at a closed-door ceremony. “In Texas, we work to save those lives. That’s exactly what the Texas Legislature did this session.”

Supreme Court to review Mississippi abortion law that advocates see as a path to diminish Roe v. Wade

The lawsuit comes as abortion opponents have passed state regulations and are eyeing a more conservative Supreme Court to reexamine Roe v. Wade’s guarantee of the right to choose an abortion.

The justices announced in May that they will review a restrictive Mississippi law that would ban almost all abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. In taking the case, the court said it will examine whether “all ­pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions are unconstitutional.”

Before the Texas measure passed this spring, more than 300 lawyers in the state, including former judges and law professors, wrote to legislators raising constitutional concerns.

They urged the lawmakers not to “weaponize the judicial system” by exempting these lawsuits from “the normal guardrails that protect Texans from abusive lawsuits and provide all litigants a fair and efficient process in our state courts.”

Opponents of the law also say it will disproportionately affect Black and Hispanic communities and low-income women who already encounter barriers to health care. Nationally, 3 out of 4 abortion patients are poor or have low incomes and struggle to cover the cost of the procedure, transportation to a clinic or child care, according to the lawsuit. Data compiled by the state indicates that nearly two-thirds of all abortions performed in Texas during the past five years involved Black and Hispanic women.
Marc Hearron, senior counsel for the Center for Reproductive Rights, said that if the measure is not blocked before September, the potential lawsuits will force doctors and health clinics to spend time and money defending themselves in court and put providers at risk.

The law “allows any ideologically motivated party out there to bring a case across the state,” Hearron said. Lawmakers, he said, intended to “distract and prevent providers from being able to provide constitutionally protected health care to their patients.”

Why include undecided voters in that list? They are the very life blood of democracy. If everybody voted for "my party, right or wrong" then change could only happen as older voters died and were replaced by younger ones. It is only the floating voters, who make their decision on recent performance and current/future needs, who keep the politicians in line.

I've been collecting cartoons for over 50 years, nowadays only on-line cartoons.

I do admire cartoonists - a few lines, a caption & they nail the problem/news item.

Somehow I doubt that a state governor can overturn a federal law. Meanwhile, Southwest Airlines and American Airlines have told Abbott they will be ignoring him.

What are the airlines supposed to do? Order unvaccinated pilots and attendants to parachute out of the plane over the Texas border? Because unvaccinated employees cannot legally be in other states.

Me, I think this order, like the abortion law, is a foolish ploy meant to distract media from drilling home how many Texans are suffering and dying from Covid.

In the news today that the curriculum director at a Texas school has decreed that, when teaching students about the Holocaust, ‘opposing views’ must also be offered. WTAF?

Discussing with children (always at an appropriate age) that Holocaust denial is a big problem in the world, and why it's a big problem, would be fine with me. Catholic schools should be telling the kids about other religions and none (mine didn't, except to peddle the untruth that only Catholics went to heaven). Etcetera. But giving any kind of platform to Holocaust deniers, or to legitimise Holocaust denial by promoting those views as a respectable equal-but-opposite, is simply telling lies to children.

Opposing views and alternate facts sounds familiar. I suppose German oven manufacturers could celebrate the holocaust along with racists, murderers, bankers, real estate, art dealers...

Still learning about public lynching, and now public shooting, strangulation, imprisonment of dark skinned people and that the only good Indian is a dead Indian, should have opposing views.

With certain social and financial pressures it only took a highly civilized nation like Germany to become the epitomy of evil. It could happen to America like its happening in Texas. We at least have a heads up, this time around. In combination with Pandemic, Facebook and its deniers, it makes matters less hopeful.

Germany didn't become the epitome of evil (as an aside, do a little thought experiment and project what response you'd get if you said that Israel is the epitome of evil: there are good ways and less good ways of saying things...). A vicious, fascist regime hoodwinked the German people into believing in them and demonising an enemy within that wasn't an enemy at all. The German people were and are no different from people anywhere else. They were extremely vulnerable to that kind of persuasion as a result of the privations visited on them following WW1. Yes we have the heads-up but complacency is dangerous. You have to stop Trump from running again, as he's sure to win if he's allowed to. That'll be a damn sight bigger mess than even Texas (or Boris Johnson, come to think of it) could manage.

NPR's All Things Considered had a feature story this week,
too quick for me but just enough to hold one's attention.
This one is about Congressional districts and what is known as
gerrymandering.
It's happening in Texas now, according to the report on the air.
And it happened in a very, how to say,
businesslike fashion,
with little public fanfare and a lot of behind-closed-doors planning.


I don't know how it is possible, with gerrymandering,
for Texas to go from having
one congressional district with a high African-American population
to having ...
zero such districts. How??

I heard a story this week about how the cities in states bordering Texas are seeing an influx of abortion clients coming in from Texas, and it is jamming up their operations because they haven't scaled up for the extra capacity.

In 2020 the TX attorney general offered a bounty to anyone who identified voter fraud after Trump lost. This week he finally paid something - $25,000 to a Pennsylvania man who spotted one case of a man voting twice - for Trump.

The cash came from the AG's campaign fund. Can that be legal?
