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...

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

Labor Fascism in Chattanooga

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

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
