Republican Texas judge frees all the
accused criminals who appear before him

all lost to Democrat rivals - because
´that´s what people want´

A juvenile judge in Houston freed at least seven youngsters brought to his court the day after he lost reelection to a Democrat. Judge Glenn Devlin, who is known for sending youths to detention, simply asked whether or not they planned to kill anyone before turning them loose. Public defenders said he complained ´that´s what the voters want´ as he indiscriminately freed people. The youths were facing a range of charges but at least four of them were facing serious accusations of aggravated robbery. (Snip) Democrats swept the benches of Republican justices in Houston on Tuesday night, seizing control of 59 posts,

He´s not wrong; the voters demand more crime. Article continues to say that he rescheduled the cases until early next year, when his leftist replacements take office.

He should have just gone ahead and pronounced them not guilty and apologized to them for having traumatized them for arresting them in the first place. And offered them free bullets for their guns for the next year.

´It is improper for a judge to make orders motivated by partisan interests or in spite as a result of his political loss,´ said Sharon Watkins Jones, director of political strategies for the ACLU of Texas.


The ACLU director of political strategies, who was probably thrilled beyond measure that her partisan political party swept the benches, is complaining that someone is being partisan..

I think an investigation of the tax status of the ACLU is long overdue. Naked partisanship should not be tax deductible.

Do not for a minute not think there was a coordinated effort by the Left to target those 59 judge positions.

That is not an accident they all went Democrat, when most people don´t know anything about any judges, and likely don´t vote on them at all, leaving this slate open for this type of scheme.

You can look at this two ways. First the judge is being petulant over losing, or second, he knows what these liberal judges will do once they take their seats. I´ll go along with the latter because it sends a message to these liberals and should give them second thoughts about being lenient with their sentencing. If they are lenient and go soft on these alleged criminals, they will look bad. But then, it´s a resume enhancement as far as the libs are concerned and they will continue to vote Dem. The judge though, is right saying that its what the liberals want.

Political affiliations of judges are a useful barometer of their worldview. Consider Ginsberg, Sotomayor, the Wise Latina; you know with great certainty what decisions they will reach. For judges running for elected office, in many cases party affiliation (give or take whether you recognize the person´s name) is all a voter has to go by; news reporters are lazy in reporting which judge let X and so criminal loose, or locked him away.

Dallas county republican judges got wiped out about 15 years ago. This happens in counties when you vote straight ticket democrat. State races are true, but cities and counties all flip.

Kept telling our US-TX 32 Rep Pete ‘my home is actually Fort Lauderdale’ Sessions that immigration was going to sink him with voting, but I guess he was making too much money in DC to really care - he lost this time - RINO.

The UN’s environment chief, Erik Solheim, has resigned following severe criticism of his global travels and internal rule-breaking which led some nations to withhold their funding. The Guardian understands Solheim was asked to resign by the UN secretary general, António Guterres. (Snip) A draft internal UN audit leaked to the Guardian in September found Solheim had spent almost $500,000 (£390,000) on air travel and hotels in just 22 months, and was away 80% of the time. The audit said this was a “reputation risk” for an organisation dedicated to fighting climate change. A UN staff union leader called some

They are the advance line of the migrant caravan that Donald Trump has said is attempting an “invasion” of the US. But, as a 400-strong group of asylum-seeking Central Americans arrived in the Mexican border town of Tijuana on Saturday, they appeared more concerned with love than war. The splinter caravan – which is made up of dozens of LGBTQ+ people – was in celebratory mood as two of its members, 23-year-old Erick Dubon and Pedro Nehemias, 22, got married. The couple – originally from Honduras where same-sex unions are banned – tied the knot ahead of applying for asylum

Investigators are examining a work of art to establish whether it is a Picasso snatched from a Dutch museum in 2012. The painting, Picasso’s Tete d’Arlequin (Harlequin’s Head) was stolen six years ago in a haul of seven valuable artworks from the Kunsthal gallery in Rotterdam. The Romanian prosecutor in Bucharest said on Sunday that officials were examining a painting that a novelist said she found under a tree after receiving an anonymous tip. The work, purported to be the stolen Picasso, was given to the Dutch embassy in Romania on Saturday. Four Romanians were convicted of stealing Tete d’Arlequin

China ‘has taken the gloves off’ in

It was the great microchip heist — a stunning Chinese-backed effort that pilfered as much as $8.75 billion in patented American technology. U.S. officials say the theft took a year to pull off and involved commercial spies, a Chinese-backed company, a Taiwanese chipmaker and employees affiliated with Micron Technology, a U.S.-based microchip behemoth. Yet what Micron called “one of the boldest schemes of commercial espionage in recent times” is most notable because it’s not unusual. Beijing over the last two years has significantly ramped up its swiping of commercial technology and intellectual property, from jet engines to genetically modified rice

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that "the wealthy few" enjoy what, "in justice, belongs to all" and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.

Patrons at a small bar in Pocatello, Idaho, were a bit confused as to why a stranger showed up intent on watching the Harvard-Yale football game one day in 1982. He tried to explain, but no one really paid much attention until he offered to buy all the beer. Had they been listening, they might not have believed him. He was only there because he received a cryptic phone call that consisted of just three words: "Watch the game." Still, the message was received. There was only one reason he could have received such a strange call: After four years,

Broward County’s ballot recount hit yet another snag Saturday with 2,040 ballots lost or misplaced. The county’s eternally beleaguered Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said they were either misplaced, misfiled or mixed in with another stack. One thing she said she was sure of was that the ballots were still in the building. “The ballots are in this building. There would be nowhere else for them to be,” Snipes said. “The ballots are in the building. The ballots are in the building.” Snipes has been in the crosshairs of national controversy since Election Day. With a noon Sunday deadline looming,

A national logging organization is offering support to President Trump following catastrophic wildfires in California and a political debate over the causes of the destructive blazes. “President Trump blamed poor forest management for wildfires in California and throughout the West, and there is truth to statements he has made,” said Daniel Dructor, executive vice president of the American Loggers Council, a coalition of state and regional associations that represents independent contract loggers. “It’s time to rise above political posturing and recognize that active forest management — including logging, thinning, grazing and controlled burning — are tools that can and must

(Snip) In a short interview, Snipes, 75, said: “You know, the protesters have been claiming stuff all week so whatever they’re doing, that’s what they’re doing.

Cervical cancer is treatable. Why are

Mirebalais, Haiti — Cervical cancer is a disease that Haiti cannot afford. And in most cases, it’s a disease the country’s broken healthcare system cannot treat. There is just one MRI scanner in the entire country of 11 million people. Radiation treatment does not exist — for any kind of cancer — because there are no machines. Cancer screenings and early detection programs are limited, and so is access to lifesaving care. In a country already struggling to manage maternal deaths and childhood diseases that have been largely controlled in other parts of the world, cervical cancer is nearly always a death

Peggy Noonan’s intense dislike for President Donald Trump undermines her credibility as a fair and balanced columnist: She cannot be true to her trade when she hates the objects of her pen. With the Trumps, she has lost all sense of balance. Her unwarranted attack on First Lady Melania Trump last weekend in the Wall Street Journal is plain ugly. In a column titled “Melania’s Misstep and Michelle’s Mystery,” Noonan declares her love for former first lady Michelle Obama after reading her memoir, Becoming. Noonan should know by now that every auto-biographer blows his/her own trumpet.

TIJUANA, Mexico — Migrants stranded in Tijuana are complaining about cramped living spaces, exposure to the cold at night, limited access to food and safety concerns. The makeshift shelter they´ve been living in for almost a week is nearing capacity, and more migrants are on the way to this border community. More than 2,500 migrants, hailing mostly from Honduras and to a lesser extent from other Central American countries and Mexico, are staying at Unidad Deportiva Benito Juárez, a sports complex in Tijuana´s north end. Another 3,400 are in nearby Mexicali, about 90 miles away, according to the state officials.

Detroit — A federal judge Tuesday dismissed female genital mutilation charges against several doctors in the first criminal case of its kind nationwide, ruling the law is unconstitutional. The opinion by U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman comes two weeks after defense lawyers mounted the first challenge to a 22-year-old genital mutilation law that went unused until April 2017. That´s when Dr. Jumana Nagarwala of Northville was arrested and accused of heading a conspiracy that lasted 12 years, involved seven other people and led to mutilating the genitalia of nine girls as part of a religious procedure practiced by some
