Wonders Never Cease! SCOTUS Upholds Texas Voter ID Law

vote

What a pleasant pre-college football Saturday this has turned out to be.

In an unsigned 6-3 decision, the SCOTUS has “ordered” that the voter ID law be allowed…for now.

For an extensive explanation of the order and the future standing of the ID law is HERE.

I have no idea how the ID law will fare in further court actions, as the federal judge(appointed by President Obola) is determined to prove the law is unconstitutional, which the SCOTUS did not address in this order.

In any event, it is a happy day knowing that for at least this federal election(early voting in Texas starts Monday the 20th) voters that make an appearance at polling stations will have to identify themselves. This gives legal voters more certainty and confidence that their vote actually means something.

At least for this election, the race-baiters and other libturds that would weaken the election process are pushed back.

Cronyism Kills

Remember 2009?

The Obama regime promised a miracle economic recovery if only Congress would pass their mammoth economic stimulus bill.  Shovel-ready jobs.  Green, renewable energy.  Smart Policies.  Yada, yada, yada.

ebola=nurseThis occurred to me as I saw some of the new Democrat ads blaming the GOP for Ebola.  “Cuts Kill,” or something.

Some $80 BILLION in the stimulus package was devoted to green energy, much of which was directed to campaign donors and other friends of the regime.

In short order, many of those same companies began to fail.  As Ashe Schow notes:

So far, 34 companies that were offered federal support from taxpayers are faltering — either having gone bankrupt or laying off workers or heading for bankruptcy.

 

If you’re keeping score:  almost $8 Billion of the 2009 Obama stimulus bill went to campaign friendly green energy companies which are either failing, or in bankruptcy.

That’s enough to fund the CDC entirely for 15 months.

Cut’s Kill, my ass.

Perry’s Indictment~Round 2

AUSTIN — The special prosecutor in the case against Gov. Rick Perry is asking for some help.
San Antonio lawyer Michael McCrum, who guided the case to last month’s indictment, filed a motion Friday asking a state court to fund a co-counsel.

Sounds ominous, that the Governor’s legal team is actually fighting back with motions and the libturd’s hand picked lawyer is overwhelmed with answering…both of them.

As mentioned in another post, this was never about Gov. Perry violating the constitution, it was about violating the law of the libturds which states their officials can never and should never be held to any societal standards or laws that the “little people” should.
Or as John Ransom at Townhall stated in a column well worth the read:

Perry, it seems, committed the unpardonable sin of holding the DA responsible for drunkenness. How dare mere mortals hold the people responsible for prosecuting crimes to a standard that applies to the rest of us?

The main point to the libturds wanting the Perry indictment hasn’t changed, the conviction is meaningless only the indictment matters and the libturd media got the memo, every time Gov. Perry is mentioned by one of the LSM outlets it is always “the indicted Gov. Perry.”

To further illustrate how low the chances are of Gov. Perry being convicted are, it seems the aforementioned Michael McCrum is facing very serious contempt of court charges.

Prosecutors filed a contempt of court motion against San Antonio-based attorney Michael McCrum in January, after a separate case the previous fall. In it, one of McCrum’s clients was convicted of manslaughter for driving his car the wrong-way down an interstate with a blood-alcohol level three times the legal limit, and sparking a head-on crash that killed two men.
McCrum was accused of telling his client’s former addiction counselor to “get lost for a while” and not be available to testify at the trial’s punishment phase.

Yes, Gov. Perry has reason to smile, the smell of libturd fail has that effect on reasonable people.

Gov. Perry Shows How To “Mug” For The Camera

The radical left apparently doesn’t care about optics, as long as they can get an indictment on a GOP politician that poses any kind of threat to their electoral designs.

If they cared about optics, the last thing they would want is to remind of us the drunken fool Rosemary Lehmberg who was arrested for DUI in 2013 with a BAT of .239(.08 is the legal standard).

Like this charming photo:
lehmberg

Or this one:
null

I know right? Any guy says he would “hit that” he means only with a baseball bat.

This drunken fool has now become a national figure and the new face of the Texas Democrat Party, which must be upsetting Wendy “Abortion Barbie” Davis.

Continuing with the optics of this political farce is today’s release of Gov. Perry’s “mug shot” at the same Travis County Sheriff’s office. He might want to use this one for any campaign ads he is planning.

Gov P

Besides the fact that Gov. Perry was using his constitutional authority that the Dems claim is illegal, and many liberal commentators are groaing over their charge, this event has not gone quite the way the Dems had hoped.

oops

 

20 Smidgens

“The Obama administration has lost or destroyed e-mails for more than 20 witnesses, and in each case, the loss wasn’t disclosed to the National Archives or Congress for months or years, in violation of federal law,” House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA).

prez-pezThe most recent scofflaw:  Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services administrator Marilynn Tavenner
Joining Ms Tavenner in this Obama Administration Hall of Shame are:

  • Lois Lerner, Washington-based head of the IRS Exempt Organizations(who originally apologized in May 2013 for targeting conservative groups),
  • David Fish, who routinely corresponded with Lois Lerner
  • Lerner subordinate Andy Megosh,
  • Lerner’s technical adviser Justin Lowe
  • Cincinnati-based agent Kimberly Kitchens (who donated to President Obama’s 2012 campaign and  worked in the IRS Exempt Organizations office in Cincinnati),
  • Nikole Flax, former chief of staff to IRS commissioner Steven Miller (Flax made 31 visits to the White House between July 12, 2010 and May 8, 2013),
  • Michelle Eldridge, IRS national media relations chief,
  • Nancy Heagney (Another Cincinnati-based Exempt Organizations official that worked under Lerner),
  • Julie Chen, agent,
  • Tyler Chumny, supervisory agent,
  • 9 others

 

digital evidenceEvidence must be collected and preserved to get any type of court to review whether laws have been broken. That job is impossible when the ones being investigated are the ones in power.  Lies, misdirection, stonewalling,  footdragging, and destruction of evidence:  We live in dark, evil, corrupt, lawless times.  It will get worse before it gets better.

I recall that a young Hillary Clinton was one of many Democrats crying bloody murder over 18 minutes of “lost” tape in the Watergate scandal, before she was fired by Jerry Zeifman. Why was she fired? In Zeifman’s own words:

“Because she was a liar.” … “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality,”

P.J. O’Rourke once said, “My Grandmother wouldn’t even speak the word ‘Democrat’ if there were children in the room, she’d say ‘bastards’ instead.”

Indeed.

This is no ham sandwich

As the saying goes, a good prosecutor can persuade a Grand Jury to indict a ham sandwich.

NY Daily NewsIn this case however , an Orange County, CA Grand Jury returned a true bill in a 44-count indictment of Democrat super-donor and self-described “best friend” of Nancy Pelosi, Kareem Ahmed.

He was named as the “ringleader” in a conspiracy involving a multimillion dollar scheme to defraud the workers compensation system.  The sealed court documents  obtained by KPCC 89.3 public radio also named Ahmed on charges of involuntary manslaughter of a minor.

Kareem Ahmed’s largest contribution of 2012 …. went to the effort to re-elect President Barack Obama in his race against Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Between February and March of 2012 he gave $1 million to “Priorities USA Action,” the Progressive super PAC founded by Obama White House aides Bill Burton and Sean Sweeny

5 Basic Characteristics of a Psychopath

A guest post, by Daphne Holmes

Psychopathic behavior comes to light most frequently when inconceivable acts of brutality are uncovered in society. Serial killers, most notably, are associated with sociopathic and psychopathic behavior because the nature of their crimes is so abhorrent, casual observers have a hard time making sense of it. And while the exploits of deviants like Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy do furnish high-profile examples of psychopathic behavior, not every psychopath ultimately turns to violence.

Acting out in violent ways is one characteristic of psychopathic behavior, but there are other traits, less visible, which also illustrate psychopathic tendencies. Early psychopathof psychopaths identified a moral deficiency among them, which stood among well-adjusted individuals who were better able to reconcile social aspects of their lives. Today’s clinical standard for identifying psychopaths has advanced to include specific traits, including these qualities commonly exhibited by sociopathic individuals.

Emotionally Vacant

To varying degrees, psychopathic behavior includes shallow or absent emotions. Notorious deviants, for example, are well-known for displaying a lack of fear. In many cases, the brazen activities psychopaths engage-in result from their lack of normal fear responses, which would halt well-adjusted individuals long before they commit atrocities. Shame and other social emotions are also diminished among psychopaths who display little sign of embarrassment in social circumstances. Love is foreign to psychopaths as well, which further distances them from normal, well-adjusted people capable of empathizing with others.

Egocentric

Unapologetic self-obsession is a commonly held personality trait exhibited by psychopaths. Their narcissistic tendencies prevent them from understanding their true roles in society, and they often believe there part is of significant importance in the grand scheme of things. Instead of maintaining realistic social views and expectations, psychopaths often show a sense of entitlement. By holding to their visions of self-importance, psychopaths justify their behavior to themselves. After all, they seem themselves at the center of every social dynamic, so the rules simply don’t apply to them.

Irresponsible

Overwhelmingly, psychotic individuals are poor planners, unable to construct reasonable approaches to life. They are overconfident by nature, so psychopaths are prone to poor judgment – turning to their perceived abilities to solve dilemmas, rather than identifying the facts and influences which might lead them to make prudent decisions.

Lack of Guilt and Accountability

Rationalizing their antisocial behavior is easy for psychopaths, who simply do not adhere to normal patterns of guilt and accountability. Whereas others seek was to make amends or reconcile missteps they make, psychopathic individuals are not bound by social conventions, so guilt is simply not a part of their thinking. Since ethics and responsibility are not present to hinder their rationalizations, it becomes impossible for psychopaths to experience remorse or guilt and easy for them to blame others for their own shortcomings.

Insincere

By many accounts, psychopaths are often capable of socializing, even excelling at being “charming”. Outwardly, this may seem contrary to what we know about the character of psychopaths, but seen for what it is, the reality actually fits right in with a typical sociopathic personality. Psychopaths are cunning and manipulative, so appearances may point to a glib, conversational individual. In truth, however, their presentations are deceitful, so casual observers never see the truth about what lurks beneath the surface.

Psychopathic tendencies do not always lead to explosive violence and depraved behavior. There are, however, shared tendencies exhibited by notorious psychopaths and those whose lives unfold without significant incidents. Understanding the disorder accounts for characteristics like narcissism, egocentrism, overconfidence and a host of other irregularities associated with the sickness.
