Ken Paxton emerges victorious from yet
another career scandal

Original Article

Posted By: 4250Luis, 9/18/2023 8:40:14 AM

Ken Paxton rides again. Beset by years of legal, personal and political problems, Texas’ scandal-resilient attorney general scored his biggest vindication yet Saturday when the state Senate voted for acquittal in his impeachment trial. It marked a screaming milestone in a two-decade political career that has seen Paxton harness the state’s increasingly conservative politics — and later the rise of Donald Trump — to stay in power longer than his vulnerabilities would suggest.

There was no "scandal ". The so called case was built on a lie.

The Bushes missed in this political persecution. In a nearby thread, read Jeff Crouere's "Good Riddance to the Bush Regime." As Revrum Jackson once hollered, "Stay out da Bushes."

It’s the Texas Tribune. A liberal rag on par with the Post or the Times. They had Paxton hanging prior to the trail. Paxton is MAGA.

The Texas Toilet Tribune, another Leftist Rag. There was No Scandal, the charges were made up by disgruntled FORMER employees. They didn't like a boss that actually held them to a 'standard' and they failed miserably!

Paxton, like Trump, has brought every worm out of the closet. They could not defeat Paxton at the ballot box, so went to impeachment, and to court, which are also nothing but shams. The "whistleblowers" showed their ugly visages at trial, and were thoroughly discredited by defense attorney Buzbee. All that was accomplished was to martyr Paxton to his followers, who may not have known him that well before, but do now, and will support him without question in any future election. Voters now know what reprobates are seated in the Texas House, including Democrat Andres Murr from Junction, who showed himself as an obnoxious tyrant, who along with Dan Phelan of Beaumont, deserve to be impeached and removed from their offices. The Democrats and Rinos are never done, so they have other fallback scam indictments. And if that don't work, they will leave the state for New Mexico, so the legislature does not have a quorum to do business. Austin is a hotbed of pompous, ignorant left wing lawyers, whom no one would hire, so are eating at the government trough. And there is a lot more negative things about this bunch of derelicts.

The Texas Tribune is a "non-profit" and "non-partison" leftist moneygrab that is funded by, among others: More than $2 million from the Ford Foundation, $3 1/2 million from Bill Gates Foundation, $2 1/2 million from Facebook. The website currently claims public access to their IRS info. The link goes to the *2016* Form 990. 23 employees named. CEO paid $372,017. James O'Keefe would have a field day with this bunch of commie grifters.

It's sickening how a democrat can be caught red-handed holding a bloody knife over a corpse, yet many knee-jerk responses are often about the bogeymen known as "The Bushes." If there were as many DINOs (I can think of only two part-time DINOs in WV and AZ) as there appear to be RINOs, we'd never have to worry about the growing communist insurgency within our own government.

Now that the Texas Senate was not bamboozled, they will try again with their friends at the federal agencies - the SEC and the FBI. Soros money will used at 5he DoJ to try to remove him. Paxton better keep his nose clean and his pants zipped. And not be cowed.

Whether it’s because they have no fear of consequence or because they really are that stupid, Democrat operatives regularly stuff ballot boxes in full view of cameras. The pattern is nauseatingly familiar at this point: First, Big Left’s candidate comes from behind to win an election with a handful of mail-in or absentee votes. Then, video, sworn testimony, and/or official complaints of ballot harvesting and ballot box stuffing emerge. The matter is referred to law enforcement, which opens an investigation.

Biden Administration's Dangerous, Failed,

[T]he US, instead of stopping Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, is bribing the mullahs not to go to 90% enrichment [the level needed for a nuclear bomb], at least on the Biden administration's watch, especially ahead of the November 2024 US presidential election. Meanwhile, Iran laughably keeps claiming that it is not even seeking a nuclear bomb. After that, the Biden administration looked the other way during the Islamic Republic's malign actions in the region, such as smuggling weapons, and shipping oil to Syria and Hezbollah in direct violation of US sanctions, at the same time that Iran was busy increasing its influence in America's backyard.

Are non-white voters really moving away from the Democratic Party? To partisan Democrats confronting this question on Twitter (sorry, X), it seems preposterous that the party of former President Donald Trump, whom they routinely call a racist, could be gaining support from blacks, Hispanics and Asians. But the evidence for eroding non-white support for Democrats is strong. The New York Times' analyst Nate Cohn, who back in June 2016 was the first to identify Trump's appeal to previously Democratic-voting white non-college graduates, noted earlier this month that President Joe Biden was carrying just 53% of non-whites in 2022-23 New York Times/Siena College polls

When the progressive woke revolution took over traditional America, matters soon reached the level of the ridiculous. Take the following examples of woke craziness and hypocrisy, perhaps the last best witnessed during Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution. The Biden administration, from its outset, wished to neuter immigration law. It sought to radically alter the demography of the U.S. by stopping the border wall and allowing anyone who could walk across the southern border into the United States.

Before whistleblower and IRS agent Gary Shapley went public with allegations that he was being sandbagged in his investigation of Hunter Biden by DOJ officials, he was promptly removed from his position. Now, we know why. According to testimony made before the House Ways and Means Committee, Shapley was removed after a recommendation from Darrell Waldon, who was the IRS Special Agent in Charge of the criminal inquiry at the time. It is concerning that Shapley would be removed for "perceived" bias that even Waldon felt was completely unsubstantiated. Also of note is that the timing of Waldon's recommendation

Twenty-two years ago this month, the deadliest attack on U.S. soil ever was carried out by a despicable band of terrorist extremists. Those attacks, on September 11, 2001, claimed the lives of 2,977 innocent people – and devastated countless others in the aftermath. But while 9/11 would be used to justify everything from government spying on U.S. citizens to a full-scale invasion of Iraq, there’s something many people don’t know. The majority of the terrorists responsible for 9/11 were not from Iraq or Afghanistan – the countries we chose to invade in response to the attacks.

More than 1,600 scientists, including two Nobel laureates, have signed a declaration saying that "There is no climate emergency." The declaration is unlikely to get any attention from the mainstream media, unfortunately, but it is important for people to know about: the mass climate hysteria and the destruction of the US economy in the name of climate change need to stop. "Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific," states the declaration signed by the 1,609 scientists, including Nobel laureates John F.

Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., while announcing his 10-point plan to end the plastics pollution crisis, said he would ban fracking. The process of fracking involves high pressure injections of liquid into underground rocks and layers to open fissures and extract oil or gas. The United Nations says each year, 19-23 million tons of plastic waste leaks into waterways, polluting rivers, seas, and lakes.

It’s official: Democrats make everything worse. It was a sentiment long felt by many in the country, but after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) recent decision to nix the Senate’s dress code and, in turn, obliterate the regard, respect, and dignity of the office, Schumer and the Democrats erased any doubt about ushering in societal rot and the nation’s decline. It’s an embarrassment, and every Democratic politician should be ashamed. And that includes Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA), believed to be the impetus for Schumer’s decision to eliminate the dress code. But the prestige of the Senate shouldn’t be lowered

Billy Chemirmir murdered 23 elderly caucasian women in Dallas and Collin Counties, stole their jewelry, and sold it for cash.

Chemirmir was later convicted of Harris’ killing and the slaying of Mary Sue Brooks, 87. Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis a few weeks ago said he would not be seeking the death penalty
