Texas Brings First Successful Lawsuit Against Biden Executive Orders

“I promise my fellow Texans and Americans that I will fight against the many unconstitutional and illegal actions that the new administration will take, challenge federal overreach that infringes on Texans’ rights, and serve as a major check against the administration’s lawlessness.”

(Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton)

 

What is good for the goose is good for the gander, right!

Do you remember how the Socialist Democrats at places like the ACLU and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society et al stopped most of Trump’s efforts to reform immigration and the Refugee Resettlement process (to keep us safe!) and Trump was sued in virtually every effort.

Let’s hope this is the beginning of a trend!

Federal Texas judge halts Biden’s 100-day deportation ban after Paxton challenge

A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily barred the U.S. government from enforcing a 100-day deportation moratorium, an immigration priority of President Joe Biden.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Friday had asked U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton, a nominee of former President Donald Trump who took the bench in Corpus Christi last June, to block the Biden administration’s new policy that pauses most deportations for the next 100 days.

“Texas is the FIRST state in the nation to bring a lawsuit against the Biden Admin,” Paxton, a conservative Republican, wrote on Twitter. “AND WE WON. Within 6 days of Biden’s inauguration, Texas has HALTED his illegal deportation freeze. *This* was a seditious left-wing insurrection. And my team and I stopped it.”

[….]

….Tipton said the Biden administration and key federal agencies that deal with immigration “do not have discretion to completely disregard” federal code that says “when an alien is ordered removed, the Attorney General shall remove the alien from the United States within a period of 90 days.”

[….]

The case appears poised to make its way to the federal appeals courts quickly.

Wow! 1,008 Deportation Flights in 2020!

Just so you know, the open borders agitators were pretty ticked-off at the Trump Administration as it got so many illegals/criminals deported in its final days, including on these flights to Africa.

Going home were “Somali, Ethiopian and Kenyan deportees.”

To the Socialist Dems, they are all “asylum seekers” rather than criminals….

Twitter AND Google Want to Know if I am Real

Update:  This is what you see if you go to my Twitter account (I can’t see it, but you can).  “Unusual activity!”  Yes, from Twitter as they drive conservatives from their platform.

 

It was just a matter of time…

I have been on Twitter for years and years and had at one point 16,000 followers (small by Twitter standards). They know I am not a robot.

But this is how they are going to do it.

They aren’t going to outright ban voices like mine, they are doing this:

So Google wants to collect more information on me so that I might have the privilege of using Twitter!

 

I am on Gab, but have barely gotten started there:

By the way, my Refugee Resettlement page at Facebook (which I had been remiss in keeping up for months) had a reach of 98,000 in the last month as I resumed posting there.  Visit while it lasts!

Florida Patriots Rally in Support of My Pillow Guy!

We told you the other day that the cancel-culture was busy at work and had pressured major retailers to drop My Pillow from its shelves because of Mike Lindell’s support of President Donald Trump.

Fight back!

This is the kind of peaceful protest we all need to be doing more of!

From Steve Bannon’s War Room:

Patriots Rally in Florida for My Pillow

Karyn Turk reports live from the rally to support My Pillow in Boca Raton, Florida where patriots are standing up against Big Tech oligarchs and the left who are trying to cancel Americans.

This is a screenshot. Visit the War Room to see the video.

Turk says the key is for patriotic Americans to unite together. “The left does a very good job of sticking together, we as conservatives need to do the same…and say we’re not going to tolerate this.”

Mike Lindell’s completely American-made business is under attack from the left since he has been an outspoken voice against the fraud that occurred on Nov. 3. Big Tech tyranny has led to My Pillow being dropped from Bed Bath and Beyond, Wayfair, Kohl’s, and Kroger. [Kroger is new to the list since I reported on the mean trick being done to Lindell–ed]

The War Room has contact phone numbers, so go get ’em.

Here is what I did today.  I took one of the many 20%-off flyers I get from Bed, Bath and Beyond and sent it back to the company with a note—told them I will never shop there again because of their political views and what they did to Lindell.

By the way, I put my post the other day on my Refugee Resettlement Facebook page and got a great response.  See it here.  (And, I don’t monitor comments there, so join in!).

 

 

 

 

Many Thanks and an Apology!

I have been very remiss in not thanking those of you who have sent messages and expressions of gratitude to both my e-mail accounts and at my snail mail box over the holiday season.

Although I should have been more careful about checking my post office box when I traveled to town, I do have somewhat of an excuse as the mail service in Maryland has been abysmal for months because our rural mail travels through an apparently incompetent Baltimore hub (I’m sure ol’ Joe will get that fixed!).

I am still receiving Christmas cards posted in early to mid-December!

So thank you to all who have sent Christmas greetings and thanks.

Yesterday, I began the process of re-thinking how I will handle e-mails as my accounts are constantly full and I often miss important messages from you buried among e-mails where I am apparently on someone’s e-mail list as they willy-nilly just blast out e-mails all day on myriad subjects.

Apologies to all of you who must think that I am ignoring your important questions and information.  So, stay tuned for changes in how you reach me.

As I said previously, you can respond with a comment to any recent post and mark your comment “not for publication” and I will see that.
