Texas Lawmakers Falling for Fake News Predictions of Financial Disaster with New Bathroom Bill

-By Warner Todd Huston

As the Texas legislature debates its own version of North Carolina’s bill to protect vulnerable women and children in public restrooms, some Lone Star lawmakers have fallen for a false report issued by the president of the Texas Association of Business (TAB) who has floated debunked claims predicting dire economic repercussions if the state passes the bill into law.

The state has been debating the merits of Senate Bill 6, also known as the Texas “bathroom bill,” meant to protect the privacy of women and children and maintaining that people must use facilities based only on their birth gender.

The measure is similar to North Carolina’s year-old HB2 which brought attacks from liberals across the country and sparked boycotts by entertainers and sports leagues.

North Carolina was hit with a series of boycotts by entertainers and sports leagues after it passed its own bathroom bill early in 2016. The threat of boycotts is what TAB President Chris Wallace warned about in his debunked report insisting that Texas would loose billions if it were to pass its own bathroom bill. Wallace warned Texas legislators that passing SB 6 would cost the state up to 185,000 jobs and as much as $8.5 billion in lost revenues, according to Breitbart News.

But even the purported “successful” boycotts launched against North Carolina were a dismal failure.

CNN Host Calls Terrorist Who Attacked Dallas Police ‘Very Courageous and Brave’

-By Warner Todd Huston

Are you a domestic terrorist who, for whatever reason, decide to plant homemade bombs and then lay in wait outside a Dallas police station to kill cops? Well if you are you have a big fan on CNN. Lucky for you there’s an on air talent who says that you are “very courageous and brave” to try and kill cops. Thanks for revealing yourself, CNN’s Fredericka Whitfield.

Whitfield hit the air Saturday morning after the terrorist attacked police and was then killed for his effort. She was simply awed by the “brave” work of wacko James Boulware who perpetrated the attack and was later taken out by the Dallas police.

For CNN’s Whitfield, Boulware’s fine, fine work as “was very courageous and brave, if not crazy as well, to open fire on the police headquarters.”

Several folks on Twitter were mystified if not outright outraged by the CNN anchor’s decision to define this nutjob as “brave.”

In any case, now we have CNN lining up firmly with cop killers, eh? So, we’ve got that going for us, which is nice.

Muslim Terrorists Try to Disrupt Texas ‘Draw Mohammad’ Free Speech Event, Get Killed in Attack

-By Warner Todd Huston

Two would be Muslim terrorists made to disrupt the free speech event held in Garland, Texas last night. The pair drove up to the event and started shooting at police stationed outside. One officer was slightly injured but the two Muslims were instantly put down in the attack.

As of last night police were still investigating to see whether there was a bomb inside the car in which the pair drove to the event.

The event held at The Curtis Culwell Center in Garland was the “Mohammad Art Exhibit and Contest” sponsored by Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative. Geller has been planning the event for months and has said that she is talking a stand for free speech over vociferous whining from some Muslims that images of Mohammad violate their radical, Islamist teachings.

WFAA reports: “The Garland ISD officer, identified as Bruce Joiner, was shot in the lower leg and suffered non-life threatening injuries, according to a spokesman for Garland Police. He was in stable condition at a local hospital.”

The officer was already released from the hospital by late evening.

You Can Now Be Fired for Posting a Cartoon Gun Emoji on Twitter

-By Warner Todd Huston

In an idiotic act of PCism run amuck, The Houston Rockets NBA team has fired its social media director because he dared to posted two emoticons (or emojis) of a horse being shot by a gun after the Mavericks lost to the Rockets on Wednesday. The media guy’s bosses said that the gun emoji “wasn’t appropriate” and so fired him over it.

This is the idiocy we’ve arrived at, folks. It seems that all it takes for your career to be over these days is one non-PC action and bingo, bango, it’s the end. And why is a picture of a carttongun a fireable offense, anyway?

After the Houston Rockets beat the Mavericks, the Texans’ social media manager Chad Shanks jumped on Twitter to celebrate the team’s win–as is… or was… his job.

Shanks’ Tweet featured a cartoon gun emoji aimed at a horse invoking the old “dead horse” joke to suggest that the Mavericks were destined to lose.

Stormtrooper Austin Police Chief Wants Citizens to Inform On ‘Gun Enthusiasts’

-By Warner Todd Huston

The police Chief of Austin, the most left-wing city in Texas, is demanding that citizens tell police if they have a friend, neighbor or family member who loves guns. You read that right. Just like in Soviet times when the KGB demanded that people inform on each other, this officer of the law is demanding that citizens snitch on anyone that owns a gun so police can create some sort of hit list of gun owners in the city.

In a December 1 press conference, Acevedo said that it was his job to “vet” people who own guns. Apparently, Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo thinks it is his job to go door to door to assess whether citizens should be allowed to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

During the presser, the chief said the following:

Houston, TX: City Officials Demand Local Ministers Turn Over Sermons to Screen for ‘Hate Speech’

-By Warner Todd Huston

In Houston, Texas, liberals are again at the forefront of violating the Constitution to aide their special interest groups by oppressing both freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

City officials of the left-wing city have obtained a subpoena demanding that local ministers and pastors supply their sermons to the city ahead of time so that officials can screen them for “hate speech” against gays and most especially words against the openly gay mayor of Houston, Annise Parker.

The city also says that those ministers who refuse to turn in their sermons for approval by city officials, they will be held in contempt of court.

So much for all those silly Constitutional rights, and stuff, eh?

But the city council is getting push back and rightfully so.

“Political and social commentary is not a crime,” Christina Holcomb, attorney for the pastors, said. “It is protected by the First Amendment.”

Democrat Staffer Threatens Writer With Attack By IRS

-By Warner Todd Huston

Well, one American found out that calling a Congresscritter could result in an attack on him by the IRS just because he had the gall to call and ask questions.

A writer for PJ Media called the office of Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee and instead of being treated professionally by this woman’s staffers, the writer was called names and his questions were ignored.

The writer called the Democrat’s office because on the floor of Congress she uttered an outright lie and the writer was seeking a comment on the incident.

On July 30, Jackson Lee said that Democrats “did not seek an impeachment of President Bush, because as an executive, he had the authority.”

Paying Off Obama’s Buddies: Another Way Illegal Aliens Are Wasting Your Tax Dollars

-By Warner Todd Huston

As Obama starts shipping tens of thousands of these illegal alien minors all across the nation to be housed in cities everywhere, your tax dollars follow them and some of this money is going to Obama’s pals in liberal organizations and unions to care for these children all paid for by you and me.

Obama is pumping billions of dollars into the feeding and care of hundreds of thousands of illegals who have swamped our southern border expecting–and getting–all sorts of freebies not to mention expecting to become instant citizens. But it isn’t just the billions he is spending at the border going on in this mounting crisis. Obama is also billions on these illegals in other parts of the country.

In Illinois, for instance, several left-wing groups, including the Service Employees International Union (SEIU)–all huge supporters of Obama–are getting hundreds of thousands of tax dollars to care for illegals shipped from Texas to the Windy City.

Liberal Woman Can’t Understand Why Her Vote Raises Her Taxes

-By Warner Todd Huston

Austin, Texas is the most liberal section of the Lone Star State. It is the state capital and a college town, so you know it is jammed full of half-witted liberals. And if you need a perfect example of that liberal mental disorder the Austin American-Statesman had a great one with an interview with a liberal voter who just couldn’t understand why her vote for every liberal plan on the ballot ended up making her taxes go up every year.

On May 31, the Statesman published a story on how Austiners are looking for ways to stop the city from constantly raising taxes. Within that story was a very stupid woman named Gretchen Gardner who calls herself an “artist.”

Good ol’ self-identified lefty Gretchen said that her tax bill was just killing her and she just couldn’t understand why.

Now, catch this logical disconnect:

Stupid Democrat Thinks 225-Year-Old Constitution is 400 Years Old

-By Warner Todd Huston

One of the dumbest democrats in Congress is Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. She has said many, many stupid things and this week she unleashed another one saying that the U.S., Constitution is 400 years old. This occurred yesterday and I was going to skip the story, but I just can’t let it pass un-mentioned.

This dolt of a human being made the comment on the floor of the House during the debate on the lawless president that sits in the White House. The GOP has floated a law that would hold this criminal president to the law. Plainly enough, the law is titled the Enforce The Law Act and was introduced by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R, SC).

Naturally, Obama is threatening to veto a law that tells him to follow the law. Think about that for a second. Obama wants to be given carte blanche to break the law and is upset anyone would expect him to be a law-abiding chief executive.

This president plans to be a criminal and wants Congress to give him blanket dispensation to be one.

What We’ve Come To: When A Congresswoman Doesn’t Know What Congress Does

-By Warner Todd Huston

Democrat Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee from Texas thinks it is the job of Congress to write a President’s Executive Orders. Apparently she doesn’t “get” that Obama is in the executive branch (hence the “executive” part of the Executive Orders) and she is in the legislative branch.

Jackson Lee made these ill-informed comments during a January 29 press conference ostensibly to tout the Democrat’s Full Employment Caucus (what ever that is supposed to mean).

As she spoke, Jackson Lee claimed that she hoped that Congress could “give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign.”

Flu Epidemic Kills at Least 6 Children in USA This Year

-By Warner Todd Huston

Influenza cases were reported in every corner of the United States last year, killing at least 6 children. Some of the cases have been linked to the dreaded H1N1 strain of the flu, a strain that has killed 284,000 people across the world since 2009.

Thus far in this current flu season, Texas has been hardest hit. 25 Texans have died so far. North Carolina has also seen a large outbreak with 13 deaths.

Symptoms of the flu can be mild or severe and hit the youngest and oldest citizens the hardest. Take a sore throat, weakness, headache and aches and pains seriously. Other symptoms include joint and muscle pain and itchiness of the eyes.

School Bus Drivers Punished For Praying for Deceased Child

-By Warner Todd Huston

Five Houston, Texas school bus drivers have been disciplined for supposedly “misusing school equipment” by using bus radios to pray for a co-worker whose daughter was killed by a car as she walked to school.

The five Houston Independent School District bus drivers had “disciplinary letters” placed in their employment files for using a back channel to pray together after another driver’s 12-year-old daughter was run down while walking home from school on December 16, the media reported.

In response to this unfair disciplinary action, several drivers, their union representatives, and local ministers gathered in front of the Houston schools administration building to publicly protest the move and also to publicly pray for a resolution to the situation.

You’ll Never Guess Who is Charged with a ‘Hate Crime’ for the ‘Knockout Game’

-By Warner Todd Huston

All across the country African American teens have been perpetrating the “knockout game,” a crime where teens run up behind a white person and attempt to punch them hard enough with one hit to knock them out. This black on white crime has been considered a “hate crime” by many but there never been a case prosecuted as a hate crime… until now. And, naturally, it’s a white guy being charged!

With all the hundreds of attacks by blacks on white people, not one charge of a “hate crime” has been leveled at these criminals. But now we are finally seeing one of these attacks prosecuted as a hate crime. But the perpetrator is white, of course. In Texas, a white man named Conrad Alvin Barrett, 27, has been charged with a so-called hate crime for a “knockout game” attack on an elderly black man.

On November 24, Barrett snuck up behind a 79-year-old African American man and hit him hard enough to send him sprawling to the ground. Then witnesses said that Barrett laughed and said “knockout game,” to his victim.

The federal complaint reports that the elderly victim suffered two fractures to his jaw and had to undergo surgery to have two metal plates installed so that the fractures could heal. He also lost three teeth to the surgery and spent four days in the hospital.

Dr. Richardson warned girls to stop “dressing like hoes” in order to better abide by the school dress code.

Texas Cops Illegally Stopping Drivers Demanding Blood, Saliva, Breath Tests

-By Warner Todd Huston

A report from North Texas reveals that the federal government is creating illegal roadblocks in 30 cities demanding that drivers give them blood samples, cheek swabs for DNA, and/or breathalyzer tests.

NBC TV in Dallas Fort Worth revealed a woman who told them that she was waved over to a parking lot by Fort Worth police. Once in the parking lot government workers demanded that she give them DNA or blood.

The drivers were told everything was voluntary and that no testing would be done without their consent but that turned out to be a lie as the consent form clearly shows that testing was done by a remote testing device as the drivers were approached and even before they were told why they were pulled over.

NBC had a civil liberties expert tell them that this was all quite illegal. Police cannot randomly pull people over without cause.

Did This White Candidate Win Election Pretending to be Black?

-By Warner Todd Huston

Candidate Dave Wilson was the surprise winner of the District 2 seat in Tuesday’s Houston, Texas Community College Board Trustee election. It was a “surprise” because Wilson is white and District 2 is a Houston inner city electorate. But some are crying foul because Wilson sent out a pretty misleading flyer making it seem like both he and his supporters were black.

The big winner, Dave Wilson, fully admits that this was all a campaign of political mischief. “I didn’t expect to win,” he told KHOU 11 TV after his big upset victory.

The incumbent, one Bruce Austin, an African American, has been elected and re-elected to the District 2 seat for 24 years and his loss on Election Day came as an unwelcome surprise. It did sort of seem he was talking it with a bit of humor in the TV report, though.

In the KHOU report, Austin says, “I don’t think it’s good for both democracy and the whole concept of fair play. But that was not his intent, apparently [then he chuckles].”

So, what did Dave Wilson do that was so underhanded?

Sen. Ted Cruz: We Need Our Grassroots Army to Take Down Obamacare

-By Warner Todd Huston

Senator Ted Cruz (R, TX) has not backed off from his drive to destroy the President’s disastrous take over of our healthcare system with his Obamacare scheme and this weekend he was in Iowa bucking up the troops and urging a “grassroots army” to rise up and dismantle Obamacare.

Cruz was appearing before a crowd in Akron, Iowa on Friday, October 25 in three days of events that many think indicates he’s considering a run for President in 2016.

Cruz says he is only focused on his work in the Senate now, but if he does look to a run for the White House, Iowa is a traditional place to start to raise his profile.

Whatever his goals for the future, for today he is still beating the drum to defeat Obamacare and he made some excellent points about the hypocrisy of the left, the Democrats and the Old Media complex (but I thrice repeat myself) that attacked those that wanted to delay and defund Obamacare.

Texas Congressman Slams RINO John McCain

-By Warner Todd Huston

Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert is sick to death of RINO Republicans like Arizona senator John McCain, dubbed John McLame by most conservatives. Though he didn’t exactly name the RINO from Arizona, he certainly painted quite a picture last weekend slamming him.

Gohmert was speaking during a panel discussion at the Values Voter Summit that was held over the weekend of October 12 and the discussion moved toward the current budget impasse in DC.

Gohmert then brought up “some senator from Arizona” as he prepared to slam John McCain in a thinly veiled reference.

“I heard just before I came some senator from Arizona,” Gohmert said to laughter from the audience. “A guy that liked Qadaffi before he wanted to bomb him, a guy that liked Mubarak before he wanted him out, a guy that’s been to Syria and supported Al-Qaeda and rebels. But he was saying today ‘The shutdown has been a fool’s errand.’ And I agree with him. The President and Harry Reid should not have shut this government down,” he said to great applause.

Facebook Removes GOP Texas Attorney General’s New Campaign Ad

-By Warner Todd Huston

Again showing how easy it is to have conservatives blocked or removed from Facebook, the new video campaign ad for Dan Branch, the Republican candidate for Texas Attorney General, was removed from the social media giant for “community standards” violations.

The ad, a fairly standard campaign ad, was removed and the candidate’s page blocked likely because Branch’s opponents flagged the Facebook posting.

The theme of the ad is “Come And Take It!,” and is filled with images of flags, pledges, hand holding, people in prayer, and talk of limited government, traditional marriage, and pro-life issues. It’s all pretty standard fare, especially for a Texas Republican.

Texas Planned Parenthood Abortion Mill Defrauded Medicaid to Tune of $1.4 Million

-By Warner Todd Huston

In Texas, abortion mill operators Planned Parenthood has been found to have defrauded Medicaid to the tune of $1.4 million and is being ordered to repay the stolen money.

In 2012, a former employee of Planned Parenthood’s Gulf Coast offices filed a whistleblower’s complaint with the Attorney General of Texas and the U.S. Department of Justice. The whistleblower alleged that Planned Parenthood engaged in an elaborate Medicaid fraud scheme.

The whistleblower, Karen Reynolds, submitted internal memos and other records to prove that PP engaged in a “systemwide scheme to bilk Medicaid, Title XX, and the Women’s Health Program of tens of millions of dollars over the course of at least a decade.”

Reynolds charged that PP indulged a long running practice of billing for medial services that were never performed. PP also altered records to make it seem as if abortions provided were actually other medical services and not abortions.

The whistleblower also said that PP would load visitors up with condoms, vaginal film, and other give-aways and would then charge Medicaid for the products.

Associated Press now Retweeting Activists’ Hashtags

-By Warner Todd Huston

With its recent Tweet about Texas Democrat Wendy Davis, the Associated Press seems to have given up all pretense of the journalist’s “nonpartisan” creed by tweeting the hashtag of left-wing activists along with the news.

Democrat State Senator Davis made a name for herself at the end of June by holding a new Texas abortion bill hostage by launching a filibuster that thrilled the hearts of pro-abortion activists in Texas and across the country. Her supporters began to use the Twitter hashtag #StandWithWendy to support her on that social media outlet.

A hashtag is a short code meant to help Twitter users search for Tweets with a specific message. It can be used for humor, advertising or political activism. Activists of all sorts use hashtags to spur like-minded Twitterers to action. But it is an activist’s tool, to be sure.

Yet now the AP is using that activist’s tool appearing to throw its support behind the left-wingers supporting Davis.

Texas’ Wendy Davis: Restricting Abortion is ‘Demonizing Women’

-By Warner Todd Huston

Texas State Senator Wendy Davis made a name for herself at the end of June by launching a filibuster on the floor of the state senate to stop new regulations on abortion in The Lone Star State, and now she is warning Governor Perry to “stop demonizing women” by pursuing such restrictions.

The bill Perry supports would place new requirements of cleanliness and safety on Texas abortion mills, rules that opponents of the bill say would shut down many abortionists. This, Davis claims is “demonizing women.”

On CNN with Wolf Blitzer Sen. Davis addressed Governor Perry directly. “Gov. Perry…let’s stop demonizing women who face very difficult choices in their life. Let’s make sure that we don’t close down 37 of the 42 clinics in Texas and leave women with nowhere to go and put them in a situation where there health will be at risk,” she said.

Turning Texas Blue: Obama Tours Austin

-By Warner Todd Huston

President Obama recently conducted a “tech tour” of Austin, Texas looking to get more federal money sent to support Austin’s tech boom.

The visit is part of a new campaign Obama is conducting across the country to cajole Congress into adopting some of the economic ideas he offered in his last State of the Union speech and his budget proposal.

In a visit to Applied Materials Inc., Obama said, “We’re poised for a time of progress, if we’re willing to seize it.”

The “it” he wants seized is greater federal spending. Obama has a long history on supporting “green” and tech spending on failed companies like Solyndra, Fisker Motors, and a score of other such bankrupted companies.

The President also warned that if Congress allowed “sequestration” to cut off funds to tech companies and research “We could end up losing our edge” to companies in Asia.

Some Texas Schools Teaching Boston Tea Party Was Terrorism

It has been revealed that some Texas schools were teaching that the Boston Tea Party, an event widely understood as having helped spark the American Revolution, was actually a “terrorist” attack on British authorities.

At least up until January of 2012, Texas schools utilizing the history curriculum from CSCOPE, a non-profit and supposedly non-partisan education service, taught that the most famous tax protest in American history was akin to terrorism.

The tact taken to discuss the event was to engage kids as if the Boston Tea Party had just occurred and was a current news report.
