Travis County´s DA vows
to pursue Tom DeLay

American Thinker, by David Paulin

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 9/20/2013 8:00:57 AM

Tom DeLay´s legal nightmare is far from over -- not if Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg gets her way. "We strongly agree that Tom DeLay is guilty," declared the liberal Democrat on Wednesday, soon after a Texas appeals court exonerated the former House Majority Leader of illegally funneling corporate contributions to Republican candidates in 2002. In arguing their case, Lehmberg and her team had engaged in some creative legal arguments (snip)So who is Rosemary Lehmberg? For starters, she´s "one tough lesbian." That´s according to an article last year in Dallasvoice.com, which covers LGBT issues.

The lesbian is also a mean drunk who should have resigned her job this spring when she was caught (and somehow quickly resolved) in a DWI rap in Austin.

She quickly was released, "convicted" and "served" a brief sentence for her crime.

What she should have done was RESIGN from her job as chief law enforcement officer in Travis County.

Of course, if she did that, Governor Perry would have had the opportunity to replace the "one tough lesbian" with a true law-and-order DA and perhaps one who would find real Democrat crimes instead of imagined crimes (ie, winning elections over Democrats, which obviously is the only crime Democrats favor the death penalty) like the "tough lesbian" and her predecessor persecutor, Ronnie Earle favored.

When Governor Perry and the Republicans threatened to remove funding from the state for their political shenanigans, Democrats squealed and started to demand a special prosecutor. Not against the "tough lesbian" and her sweetheart DWI deal, but against Gov. Perry for using his legal right to insist on honest government.

Welcome to the bizzaro world that passes for Austin, Berkley and Madison on the Colorado River. We need to build a cattle guard around that town to keep the liberals from leaving.

Mental illness for sure. If you disagree with liberal policies of even their way of thinking it is a crime and you should be imprisoned. Sometime during Hilary´s second term I can imagine a new law enforcement organization headed by an unelected ´Thought Czar´. Can anyone say, "Re-education Camp"?

Living in a bedroom community of Austin we call it "San Francisco on the Colorado". And where you get liberals gathered together with a political majority you find the destruction of all honesty, decency and ethics. We see it in DC and we have seen it in Austin for many years.

With liberal voters there is no limit to the scum that can be elected. The only thing that saved her hide on the DWI was her being a lesbian. Liberals, you see, love to look themselves in the mirror each morning and pat their back for voting for more degeneracy in the culture.

This isn´t going to happen. She apparently felt she had to make some big, tough defense of the prosecution, but the court ruling was a devastating evisceration of the pursuit of Tom DeLay. There are no pieces to pick up and reconstitute for the Travis County DA.

What a delightful creature - surely she epitomizes the style and class of the democrat party. Why she hasn´t risen to more dizzying heights than she has is inexplicable possessing as she does all the requisite traits for higher office as a democrat: she´s vile, profane, drunken, vindictive, hyper-partisan, lying, and a militant lesbian.

Perhaps after this feather in her cap she´ll get that call from Washington. One can only hope...

Come on Gov. Perry, time to step up and fix this. There is nothing partisan about doing the right thing sir. And Rosie needs to be kicked to the curb.

You have to remember, that in the City of Austin and most of Travis County, the only offense worth the death penalty is BWR (Breathing While Republican).

Several months ago, before her own DWI arrest, the "tough lesbian" and her cohorts threw the book at a young lady, who sadly killed a person while the young lady was driving drunk. The young lady had the sad misfortune as well to be an aide (and I think she resigned this position soon after the DWI) to a Republican official or worked in the Republican party.

The young lady realized that she had done something wrong and was going to have to pay for her crime ... but you´d have thought that the "tough lesbian" and her gang was going to take nothing less than immediate capital punishment for the crime ... while others better politically situated received significantly less of a sentence for the same offense.

Yet, when the "tough lesbian" is caught on DWI, she´s run through the system so fast your head would spin ... she probably got paid leave as well.

With leftist thugs it is never a question of justice for legal misconduct. If that were the case, they would have dropped this witch hunt years ago. What they have always been after is get Tom DeLay at all costs. He was the most effective conservative in the Congress. They set out to destroy his reputation, then his career, and lastly make him and his family paupers. Now, they are afraid he will rebound and they are very worried.

#15 and #19--in general, state officials cannot be sued for doing something that colorably falls within the rubric of "doing their jobs". It´s called "official immunity" and it´s pretty much everywhere, not just in Texas. If it weren´t there, every two-bit crook who ever got convicted could file a suit against the cops, prosecutors, judges, and all, meritorious or not. #22-- Double jeopardy is not an issue, yet. Lehmberg has only threatened to carry the appeals process--initiated by DeLay, only defendants can appeal a conviction in Texas--one step further. I doubt she will have any success Criminal Appeals

CNN reporter Jeanne Moos sparked outrage in New Zealand and Australia for her coverage of the visit of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge to New Zealand, for mocking the dress and customs of the Maori people who greeted the royals. It is almost inconceivable that a CNN reporter would mock the traditions of Native Americans, blacks, or other domestic minorities (and that editors would air such a report), but take them outside of their zone of PC awareness, and the inherent attitudes disguised at home come shining through.

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey.

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees.
