make it a good one!
I noticed the Texas elections got little attention in the national news last night, since it was never close for the highest profile races and the fact that no member of the Evil Party has won a state wide office in twenty two years. Clearly understandable, since there were many close races across the nation and many shocking victories for the GOP, especially if one considers how close the various polls showed some races were…even though they weren’t.
In Texas current AG Greg Abbott, as expected, won the election for Governor by twenty points(59.3 to 38.9). Personally, I thought he would win by an even larger margin, but the Evil Party thought they really had a great candidate, one that was firmly in lock step with their agenda and a dear, dear friend of the eugnenist at Planned Parenthood. She and her sleazy act will not be missed and I sincerely wish she would just go away, now.
In another election that was even more obscure, but was a significant victory for us in Dallas County, the abyssmal and corrupt District Attorney was defeated. While I’m sure he is quite sad today, no other person or group is sadder than the Innocence Project over his defeat. We now have a real DA with prosecutorial experience.
For national election news, I recommend RCP as the go to source.
As for the many victories of the Stupid Party over the Evil Party nationwide, I am still absorbing the context of election day. If nothing else it gives a modicum of hope for the next two years.
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.

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.
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.

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.
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:
Or this one:
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.
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.
“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).
The most recent scofflaw: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services administrator Marilynn Tavenner
Joining Ms Tavenner in this Obama Administration Hall of Shame are:
Evidence 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.”
