Some Texas pols are apparently surprised to learn that the state Attorney General is a crook: The head of a Texas House panel was aghast Tuesday after investigators laid out wide-ranging corruption allegations against scandal-soaked Attorney General Ken Paxton, calling them “alarming to hear.” “It curls my mustache,” said Rep. Andrew Murr, a fellow Republican, who no doubt was already familiar with the accusations that have swirled around Paxton for years. Paxton, a staunch conservative in his third term as the state’s top prosecutor, now finds himself facing possible impeachment proceedings—on top of an ongoing FBI investigation and a long-stalled indictment. His response has been to attack House Speaker Dade Phelan, accusing him on Tuesday—when word of the probe emerged—of drinking on the job. On Wednesday, after the litany of allegations was unveiled during a three-hour hearing, Paxton claimed Phelan, a Republican, is a “liberal” who wants to “sabotage my work.” The investigators led the House committee through years of alleged misconduct that they believe broke the laws Paxton is sworn to uphold.

I know that’s hard to believe but here it is It’s a fact: An analysis of the President’s first 30,000 words uttered in office found Mr Trump speaks at a third- to seventh-grade reading level – lower than any other President since 1929. Mr Trump’s vocabulary and grammatical structure is “significantly more simple, and less diverse” than any President since Herbert Hoover, the analysis found. The comparison is based on interviews, speeches and press conferences for every president dating back to 1929, compiled by online database Analysts at studied the “off-script” remarks of all 15 men – essentially, everything but their prepared speeches – to compare and contrast their speaking skills. The most explosive claims from a new book about Trump’s white house Analysts ran the records through eight different tests for vocabulary complexity, diversity, and comprehension level. In every single test, Mr Trump scored the lowest. Mr Trump averaged significantly fewer syllables per word than the last 14 Presidents, and used significantly fewer unique words.

You may think that battle is over, but they don’t I know you are dying to hear more about today’s right wing worldview so I thought I would share this article from a 2022 Claremont Fellow and Federalist writer entitled: Pride Month — formerly known as June — is right around the corner, and with that comes the annual rainbow lighting of the White House, heaping of praise upon people like the Nashville shooter, and the continued denigration of religious institutions by American corporations. In this instance, and countless others, the public and private sectors work hand in glove to advance both an ideological and political agenda. When, recently, Ohio Republican Sen. J.D. Vance said that “[t]here is no meaningful distinction between the public and the private sector in the United States of America,” he was describing situations like this, in which state and corporate entities move in lockstep towards common, predetermined goals with such strength and vigor that dissent becomes impossible.

He’s just a more boring version of exactly the same thing Everyone says, “oh, at least he won’t try to overthrow the government.” Do we know that? Take a look at this: During an interview on The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show, DeSantis was asked if he would consider pardons for Trump and other Jan. 6 defendants “What I’m going to do is I’m going to do on day one, I will have folks that will get together and look at all these cases who people are victims of weaponization or political targeting, and we will be aggressive at issuing pardons,” DeSantis promised. “Now some of these cases, some people may have a technical violation of the law, but if there are three other people who did the same thing, but just in a context like BLM and they don’t get prosecuted at all, that is uneven application of justice.” “We’re going to find examples where we have governments [have] been weaponized against disfavored groups, and we will apply relief as appropriate,” he added. Sexton pressed the candidate about a pardon for Trump.

By recognising that the question of NATO enlargement is at the centre of this war, we understand why U.S. weaponry will not end this war. Only diplomatic efforts can do that. George Orwell wrote in 1984 that “Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.” Governments work relentlessly to distort public Continue reading »
