Reminder: Texas Progressives stand with Gaza despite Genocide Joe and despite an Israeli cabinet member's talk of nukes.
BlueAnon may have thought I was talking about Wallbuilders' David Barton's hypocrisy, or that of followers. Nope.
Dade, Strangeabbott and Danny Goeb can't agree on exactly what to do on more border controls. That said, anybody with a legal brain CAN agree that House Bill 4, written by my Legiscritter, actual lawyer and House impeachment manager David Spiller, is unconstitutional and anything stiffer certainly will be.
Meanwhile, folks in the area of Sunland Park, New Mexico, are laughing at Strangeabbott's "state-line wall."
And, speaking of walls, Wallbuilder Joe's new effort has the Department of Homeland Services stooping to even using the same company as Wallbuilder Greg and Wallbuilder Don. It also has Wallbuilder Joe's DHS doing the same environmental waivers as Wallbuilder Don's. One thing different? Wallbuilder Joe trying to bury the news that an actual contract had been issued. Biden and DHS jefe Alejandro Mayorkas have blamed a 2019 Congress (Dem controlled, BlueAnon!) for passing the funding and it not later being revoked. Environmentalists note that it still doesn't require the DHS environmental waivers. Neither responded to Observer questions, thus indicating their true colors.

Collin County owes two prosecutors of weaselshit Warren Kenneth Paxton a bunch of money, and it sets a precedent as his case finally nears trial. Speaking of, it's funny as hell to hear hypocritical Kenny Boy object to this as some sort of planned stall tactic. Collin County indicates it will still refuse to pay; the Trib's story doesn't say what leverage the judge has in that case.
Was Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell Jr. right before he retracted his original statement that election denialist Laura Pressley caused a poll worker's heart attack?
