Mask Madness: Texas A.G. Paxton Threatens Legal
Action Against City Of Austin’s Mask Mandate

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 3/11/2021 11:00:04 PM

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton threatened to sue the City of Austin Wednesday over the city’s continuation of a mask mandate. Governor Abbott removed the statewide mask mandate last week and his order went into effect Wednesday. Austin Mayor Steve Adler and Travis County Judge Andy Brown are keeping a mask mandate in effect until April 15 to “avoid another surge of cases.” I assume that the mayor and county judge (county CEO, not a judicial office) are concerned that newly free-to-be maskless Texans will throw caution to the wind. The Easter holiday is coming up and we are in the Spring Break season

I live in Austin. Every couple of years, the Soviet Socialist City of Austin decides it's going to openly rebel against the state government and "show them who is boss". And every time they do it, the state government quickly hands Austin it's rear end on a platter. Austin slithers back under it's rock until it decides to have another hissy fit, and get it's rear end handed to it on a platter again. In fact, the only thing stopping Austin from becoming a total and complete cesspool is that the state government offices are housed here -- thank God!!!!!

This is nothing more than a democrat scheme. If someone wants to wear a mask, fine do so. However, people like myself and MANY others don't want to wear one, then we should not have to.

Like my spousal unit, Mrs G2P, retired with thirty years ER, trauma, ICU, recovery experience and now professor of nursing has said since the 15 days of mask wearing began over a year ago, it has NOTHING to do with the virus. It has EVERYTHING to do with controlling people. The world has believed a lie, period.

So many ironies.... If they trust their mask to do the job, why do they care about the virus floating around? If they trust their vaccine, why do they care about me choosing to take some risk? If they truly believed "my body my choice", why are they trying to force experimental chemistry into my blood stream? This is all about controlling the ignorant masses.

I wish Ron DeSantis would do something like that as well. We never did have a Mandate for Masks in FL, but even still many stores have a sign on the door that a mask is REQUIRED for entry! I'm fully vaccinated and have done the two week waiting period after my last shot, so I don't feel it necessary to wear a mask ANYMORE AND ANYWHERE!! But trying to go about your business is a real challenge. There is always some Busy Body chasing down those who don't have a mask on! Jeesh! Will this ever get back to normal??? The signs on the door should say "Wear a Mask if you WISH"!

This is funny. Adler and the county judge forget who they govern. It was last year and the first sign of rebellion was in Austin when a sheriff was thrown into the drink when he tried to break up a party. After the governor's order, they don't think there will be more episodes like this? BTW, Paxton has a good case. Remember Adler, the emergency declaration law passed by the legislature some time ago means the governor's EOs have the force of law. So, you are breaking the law, Adler. What irony.

We still have the mask mandate. The Governor has been neutralized. Texas is ran by the mayors and county judges that control all the major cities, which are all corrupt, and have positioned to steal all future elections. Houston's police chief, a Democrat, said the Houston police would enforce the mask mandate in the stores. Nothing has changed. We will never be able to change it without restoring election integrity. Harris County had all kinds of election irregularities similar to other areas of election fraud.

The most socialist place in Texas is of course where government is located. One can request that masks be worn, or require masks be worn in a private place of business. One can recommend masks be worn, but telling people they HAVE to wear masks is just a control method. Ninety-nine percent of all masks ARE NOT effective against viruses no matter how they're worn. Some masks are somewhat effective against viruses, but those masks are worn in a medical setting.

Foe those who purport to "follow the science," they should know that even the size of the pores in a N95 mask, theoretically down to 0.1 micron, are barely sufficient to stop a virus, such as the CCP virus, at 0.12 microns in diameter. The N95 still cannot protect against the leakage from the sides of the mask, as facial contours and ignorant users cannot obtain a perfect fit. The numbers only get worse with the fabric masks the majority of people wear, which typically have pores of around 5 microns, meaning the CCP virus just waltzes right on through. Masks have only provided an illusion of protection for those either forced to wear them or for those who welcome govern mandates that defy common sense, much less 'the science."

Washington really is the last nakedly racist place in America. And the very face of this city’s institutional racism is President Biden himself. Welcome to the White Privilege Presidency. Mr. Biden is living proof that no matter how dumb you are or how wrong you have always been or how many things you have screwed up, if you are just White enough and willing to wait around long enough accomplishing nothing, the kingship will eventually be yours. This is a guy who had been rejected by voters — often in his own party — in his endless quest for the presidency many times during his five decades running his mouth in Washington.

The Wall Street Journal, owned by billionaire Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., is banning its reporters from using the term “illegal immigrant” and “illegal” to refer to illegal aliens living in the United States. This week, in an update its style guide, the Journal states that while it will allow reporters to continue using the term “illegal immigration” to describe the process of illegal aliens arriving and staying in the U.S., it will no longer permit reporters to describe individuals as “illegal” or “illegal immigrant” in an effort to stop “labeling people.” The Journal style guide revisions now state:

I massively underestimated the impact of the Wuhan virus a year ago, both the health impact and more important, as it turned out, the consequences of the political response to the virus. This no doubt was due in part to the fact that I personally never had any fear of the Wuhan flu bug. So there have been a couple of times when I thought the Wuhan scare was nearly behind us. My track record isn’t very good, so you should take these comments with a grain of salt. A considerable number of new Wuhan cases are still being reported

Take 10 minutes out of your Friday afternoon to skim through this fascinating (and user-friendly) set of data from the polling firm Fabrizio and Lee about where Republican loyalties lie in the post-Trump era. A few weeks ago I wrote that available polling points to the GOP splitting into three groups along 50/30/20 lines: “Fifty percent are hardcore MAGA, to the point where they’re more loyal to Trump than to the party. Another 30 percent are pro-Trump but a bit more ambivalent about having to choose between him and the GOP. The last 20 percent are the Trump-skeptics, a rump but a sizable enough one that they can make mischief

As we wrote about earlier, during his prime time address last night, Joe Biden thought he could tell Americans who could and could not get together on July 4th for a BBQ. His Chief of Staff, Ron Klain, then doubled down on this goal, that the government hopes to let you gather, in small groups, by July 4th (despite having the other goal of having everyone vaccinated by May 1). Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was among the many people who had something to say about Joe Biden’s suggestion that the government could tell us when and with whom to gather on July 4th. Or frankly, any day.

On Thursday, a spokesperson for Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) told CNN and National Review that the moderate Democrat who has shown true fortitude in standing up to the radicals in his party will not be holding his own on one of President Joe Biden’s worst nominees. Manchin will support the nomination of Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) for secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). This makes Becerra’s confirmation virtually certain, and that is a crying shame for America, on many levels. First, Becerra has no medical experience and “little health policy experience.” This alone should raise alarm bells in a nominee for a key health position

Most Americans hate woke politics — and most minorities don’t share “woke” priorities. Indeed, according to pollster David Shor, woke excesses are causing black voters to flee the Democratic Party. Despite endless charges of “racism,” former President Donald Trump took the biggest share of minority voters of any Republican in my lifetime. Woke tyrants ride high, even so; according to a Cato/YouGov poll, 62 percent of Americans self-censor their political expression. Only a tiny minority of consumers care about Mr. Potato Head’s toxic masculinity, about “Aunt Jemima” as a brand or about the #MeToo aggressions of Pepé Le Pew.

Tonight, Joe Biden gave his first primetime address, and I could probably spend an entire article just riffing on his appearance. The man is not well, and that was once again obvious tonight. If one ever needed a visual for what being half-dead looks like, you got that in spades from this speech. Biden stood behind his podium, often slumped over, squinting to read his teleprompter’s massive font. He’s getting worse, and it’s a sad scene. Regardless, there was also some semblance of substance to address regarding what he said. At one point, the president appeared to levy a fresh threat to re-lockdown the country if you don’t follow his rules.
