Defense Wins Championships
I love to watch Progressives rail against Establishment Dems....
That's about half of Obama's "infrastructure bill" that was gonna fix everything and provide a million "shovel-ready jobs" everyone except for me forgot about. Infrastructure remained a "crisis" and here we are again. Imagine that.With this new &1.2 Trillion on the infrastructure bill I’m curious to see the numbers. But not curious enough to look them up myself
Judge allows defamation lawsuits against Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani and MyPillow CEO to go forwardThree major defamation lawsuits from Dominion Voting Systems against MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell and the right-wing lawyers Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani will move forward toward a trial, a federal judge ruled on Wednesday.cnn.it
The interesting part of these cases will be how far the judge allows the defendants to go in discovery. Dominion has, for example, resisted any attempt to give up t's server admin passwords, even fighting subpoenas issued by the Arizona senate. Will the judge force Dominion to turn those over to the lawyers for the defendants in this case? What else will be requested as evidence?This one will be interesting. Even if Rudy and Sydney were "lying", how far do you go to sue lawyers for defamation if they say that their client is innocent and part of a police cover-up? Post OJ Simpson, this has been a common tactic of defense attorney's to attack the credibility of law enforcement. Or how about a lawyer that makes some other outlandish claims as part of the defense of their client? Maybe even point the finger at another person....does that person have a claim of defamation?
One of the points that was brought up by the judge was that Powell and Giuliani should have known better since the government was telling them no crime was committed. That's not the bar or the standard that we have to believe everything the government tells us. Will a defense attorney defending someone arrested by the government just take the government's word that his client is guilty? That he should have known better than to make any other claims against any other possible suspect? Will a police officer have a claim against a defense attorney who calls him a liar while he's testifying? Very interesting stuff moving forward.
What my TX US Rep. Beth Van Duyne has been doing this week:
This week, I introduced the Safe and Certain Elections Act to further election security in Texas and around the country. This bill will require the use of paper backup for audits, prohibit connecting voting systems to the internet, directs the removal of ineligible voters from the registration list, and study the usage of blockchain technology to improve the security of elections. All Americans have a voice in this country. I am working to guarantee their voices are heard, and that we work together to eliminate voter malpractice.
I also introduced the RENTAL Act, which prohibits a Federal official from establishing, extending, maintaining, implementing, or enforcing a moratorium on evictions unless explicitly authorized by Federal statute. Neither Joe Biden, the CDC, nor any other unelected bureaucrat should be able to supersede Congress and the Supreme Court by single-handedly imposing or extending an eviction moratorium. This is why I intend to ensure the White House can't unilaterally change the law of the land without checks and balances.
I joined the Texas Delegation in sending a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas expressing our concern over President Biden’s immigration policies. Catch-and-release of COVID positive illegal immigrants is a public health crisis and is putting border communities and the entire state in further danger.
I had the privilege of touring K.L. Breedon & Sons, a trucking company located in DFW. We discussed issues facing their industry such as driver shortages and the web of regulations that have rendered hiring nearly impossible. KLB was also kind enough to let me test-run one of their trucks.
"Elections have consequences" unless of course you're a democrat in the minority. Then, it's okay to break the fuckin law.Texas Supreme Court says House Democrats can be arrested and brought to the Capitol, siding with Republicans trying to secure a quorum
Texas Supreme Court says House Democrats can be arrested and brought to the Capitol, siding with Republicans trying to secure a quorumIn a bid to block a voting restrictions bill, House Democrats for weeks have denied the lower chamber the number of present members needed to pass legislation. House Speaker Dade Phelan has already signed dozens of civil arrest warrants.www.texastribune.org
