Trump Wanted to Lead His Followers at Capital

President Donald Trump was aware his followers were armed and intent on violence before he gave his January 6th speech.  That was the testimony from a White House aide with close access.

There were but a few ethical adults in the White House that day.  Most had sold their soul to the petulant child in the Oval Office. 

Trump is not done with his revolution against democracy.

How Far Back will Supremes Turn Back Time?

On June 12, 1967, the Supreme Court issued its Loving v. Virginia decision, which struck down laws that banned marriages between people of different races as unconstitutional.  Will Justice Thomas make it all the way back to 1965?  If so, what happens to Ginni?

Update 6-30-22:  Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado wants to roll the clock back to before the U.S. Constitution so "the church can direct the state."  I take it she wants her church to direct the state as there are thousands of Christian denominations.  Many of our Founding Fathers were deists.  Would Boebert recognize a deist is she met one?   

Update 7-17-22:  Texas Senator Ted Cruz wants to roll back time regarding marriage.  All white, all male legislators have done some evil things over the years.  Cruz is fully capable of challenging this ignorance and hate.

Update 7-2-23:  In striking down affirmative action in college admissions Judge Thomas expressed his vision for a "colorblind Constitution."  Our founding document counted slaves as three-fifths of a person.  Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, used his slaves a collateral for a loan.  He was the first to do so.  That is our history.

Medical Care Thrown Into Chaos by Underpants Monitors

 The U.S. Supreme Court threw out the Constitutional supported right to terminate a pregnancy via a surgical procedure or prescribed medication.  This issue now falls to states and localities with few physicians as elected officials. 

Women in some states will have to travel more than 500 miles to the nearest abortion clinic

Freedom of religion as actualized by a Red Team dominated Supreme Court feels like enforced mores of conservative Christianity.  The Texas Red Team put bounties on people assisting someone get an abortion before putting same sex relationships into the abnormal category.  The Supreme Court indicated it may go after other privacy rights currently enjoyed by Americans.

Crackers shouting freedom in the U.S. Capital after hurling a fire extinguisher at a policeman's head are likely celebrating the taking away of rights from millions of citizens.

When the U.S. exports democracy to religious based foreign governments the worry is how long it might last.  Our democracy is at risk from religious extremists not content with the freedom to practice their beliefs.  They have to impose their faith on the rest of us.  

Medical care chaos is here and being foisted on our country by a religious minority.  What's next?

Update 6-27-22:  "It's a victory for white life" said one Congresswoman.  State sanctioned forced birth is here and now in many U. S. states.

Update 7-7-22:  This religious minority makes up a majority of the Supremes, many who pray with those bringing cases to the court to impose their religious will on all Americans.  Their will be done.

Update 7-10-22:  Texas Reds show their freedom restricting mettle as Underpants Monitors.  They can not only interfere with healthcare they can restrict interstate commerce.  Commence the underpants posse!

Update 7-11-22:  Several justices wrote a dissenting opinion for the underpants monitoring ruling.

“Today, the court leads us to a place where separation of church and state becomes a constitutional violation.."

Update 7-13-22:   What happens when your widely practiced religion requires abortion to save the life of the mother?  

Update 7-17-22:  Medical harm is well underway thanks to the Supremes.

...a woman bled for more than 10 days from an incomplete miscarriage after emergency room staff would not remove the fetal tissue amid a confusing legal landscape that has roiled obstetric care.  
As many as 30% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, the spontaneous demise of a fetus, commonly because of chromosomal abnormalities.

Update 7-18-22:   One physician challenged the underpants monitors saying sometimes abortion is medically necessary.

Update 8-1-22:  Underpants monitors are happy to force young girls to give birth when their body is not ready and at great risk for lifelong harm.

Update 8-21-22:  At least one mother is carrying an nonviable baby just to bury it, courtesy of the underpants monitors.

Update 9-4-22:  Red Team Texas Governor Greg Abbott initially said his administration would catch and jail rapists to keep women from having an unwanted babies. There were 13,327 reported rapes in Texas in 2020, but only 1,828 arrests for rape.  His plan B is Plan B.

Update 9-13-22:  Underpants monitor Lindsey Graham (Red Team- South Carolina) introduced a bill in the U.S. Senate to interfere with difficult medical decisions some women have to make in conjunction with their loved ones and doctors.

Faithful Politics is "a Market"

Ralph Reed of the Faith and Freedom Coalition said this recently:

“We’ve never really tried to be the churchgoing version of the party bosses in a smoke-filled room trying to figure out who the nominee ought to be,” Reed said. “We figure the best thing to do is to provide a platform for those candidates and assist them, informally, by letting them know the best way they can connect with and make their case to those voters and pastors.

“After that, we let the market decide.”

Give the people what they want even if its obviously unChrist-like.  

Reed said that he was on the phone with Trump’s speech writers “for some time” yesterday, but would not elaborate on the feedback he provided about how Trump should discuss Pence at the conference.

The lived gospel is absent to the point Reed referred to the faithful as "a market."  One to be manipulated.

Update 8-14-22:  Christian Nationalism is not what our Founding Fathers wanted when they established our country.

Update 9-10-22:  A week before the Capitol attack, on a video call organized by a member of a Christian nationalist group, a Pennsylvania state senator who is the Republican candidate for governor in the battleground state prayed that supporters of Donald Trump would “seize the power” on 6 January 2021.  

Nine people died that day or as a result of Trump's insurrection.  I imagine a number of them were Christians.  I can't imagine feeding Trump's insatiable ego is God's Will.  

Update 9-17-22:  The Red Team updated Jesus' message.

Update 9-24-22:  Trump shared a Truth Social post showing him second only to Jesus.  Investors backed out of the SPAC acquiring Trump's media enterprise to the tune of $139 million.

Update 9-28-22:  Even evangelical theologians call Christian Nationalism a distortion of the faith.

Update 11-6-22:  The Amoral Trump "chosen one" market is touring the U.S.

Update 11-8-22:  A God commercial is promoting Red Team Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.  Blue Team Presidents Joe Biden and Barack Obama are fellow Christians, yet some would say God did not choose them for the job.  

Update 11-19-22:  Some evangelical leaders found their discernment skills regarding former President Donald Trump, often the least observable Christian in any room.

Update 12-4-22:  A Christian Nationalist leader had a Twitter account full of racist rants.  Somehow he forgot about what he'd written under a pen name.  

Update 12-9-22:  A Christian minister said his efforts to influence the Supreme Court "pushed the boundaries of Christian ethics."

Update 12-30-22:  Christian Nationalism does not come close to representing the wide swath of Christian belief.  It is a distortion of Christian faith.

Update 1-17-23:  Trump threw a retaliatory impulse punch at evangelical leaders.  That's their price for dancing with the devil of an unhinged President.

Update 2-9-23:  The Red Team and Christian Nationalism are deeply intertwined.

Update 2-17-23:  Fox News Tucker Carlson called Trump a "demonic force."

Update 5-10-23:  Morning Joe noted the deal evangelicals made with Donald Trump and predicted this would come back to bite the faithful.  

“This foray into politics has been devastating for evangelicals,” as, he said, more and more young people avoid many churches’ increasingly conservative stance.

Late in his life Rev. Billy Graham came to rue his foray into politics.  He warned the “hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it.”  That fits Donald Trump to a T.  It's hard to discern Jesus teachings from observing Trump's life. 

Update 5-15-23:   One Christian used Jesus' teachings to decide not to vote for another Trump presidency.

Update 5-19-23:  Trump's henchmen are using "end times" rhetoric to whip up supporters.   A revenge obsessed Trump wants retribution.  He bears little resemblance to Jesus and his behavior is the opposite of Christ's teachings.  

Update 6-21-23:  A conservative Christian said:

“You have in Donald Trump the person who probably most embodies the antithesis of the Sermon on the Mount, the person of Jesus, and the teachings of Jesus." 

Donald Trump Calls Himself a Fool

Flip-flopper Trump is now for something he was against.  Insider reported:

Former President Donald Trump said last week it was a mistake for Republicans to not be more involved in the committee investigating January 6.

"Unfortunately, a bad decision was made," Trump said in an interview with conservative radio host Wayne Allyn Root, adding it "was a bad decision not to have representation on that committee. That was a very, very foolish decision."

Trump rejected the idea of the bipartisan commission at the time, calling it a "Democrat trap."

Democrats agreed to nearly all of the Republicans' requests, including that the panel members be divided evenly between both parties and that decisions on who to subpoena would be unanimous.

Trump. as leader of the Red Team, effectively made that bad decision for his party.  I don't pity the fool.

Update 6-29-22:  The public learned why Trump needs defending from members of his team telling the truth under oath.  Trump knew his followers had weapons before his incendiary speech.  He effectively led the Capital insurrection and a fraudulent effort to replace state electors.  Under Trump the Red Team became a criminal enterprise.

Update 8-24-22:  Trump stubbed his ethical toe yet again regarding the hundreds of confidential and top secret documents he spirited away to Mara Lago.  

"... the argument from Trump that the documents are subject to executive privilege protections suggests those documents are official records – which he is not authorized to keep and should have turned over to the National Archives at the end of the administration."

Doh!  Trump's inner circle knew their boss was skating on thin ice.

Update 8-27-22:   Former Attorney General Bill Barr said Trump is a bad boss.

"The president was bellowing at a number of his Cabinet secretaries and especially the military guys, the DoD secretary and chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and calling all of us f-cking losers at the top of his lungs," Barr said.

"One would think that an executive would have a better idea how to operate with people and manage people, and he's a poor manager of people."

High Tech Imagery Used by Jan. 6th Committee

Special high tech imagery revealed the identity of the person who cares nothing about the events of January 6th and what led up to that disturbing day for American democracy.  

Independent voters want to know.  Thus, it is not a Red or Blue issue.  

Update 6-13-22:  Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien said calls of voter fraud on 2020 election night were not "honest." Stepien also described the events that unfolded after 2020 election night as unprofessional.  Dishonest and unprofessional, that's our Donald.

Update 6-15-22:  Trump wanted to promote to U.S. Attorney General a man who said China changed votes with thermostats. 

Update 6-18-22:  Tucker compared Colbert;s comedy team to violent Trump supporters behavior in the U.S. Capital.

Update 6-19-22:  Among self-described independents, 62% think Trump should be charged with a crime for his role in Jan. 6th and 61% think he bears a "great deal" or a "good amount" of responsibility.

Update 6-20-22:  There is violence in the future, I’m going to tell you,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said on ABC’s “This Week” program. “And until we get a grip on telling people the truth, we can’t expect any differently.” 

Update 9-27-22:   Tucker Carlson cheered the election of a neo-fascist Italian Prime Minister, an admirer of Mussolini. 

Update 2-3-23:  Carlson stuck his head further up his kiester and found the remnants of his loaded jalapeno burrito, George Santos.  Insane Red Team liars and funders foisted Santos' political excrement on the public.

Update 2-17-23:  Fox News Tucker Carlson called Trump a "demonic force" 

Update 3-8-23:  The Hill reported:

“We are very very close to being able to ignore Trump most nights. I truly can’t wait,” Tucker Carlson wrote in one text to an unidentified Fox employee on Jan. 4, 2021.  “I hate him passionately, I blew up at Peter Navarro today in frustration. I actually like Peter. But I can’t handle much more of this.”

Tucker completed his investigation of January 6th from the comfort of a video monitor.  How did Tucker got that monitor up his keister to see the footage?

Update 3-9-23:  Fox News real journalists are upset over the Dominion Voting lawsuit revelations:

“We are not happy,” a Fox News reporter told The Daily Beast. Another employee, a news producer, said it was a “really bad time to be working here.”

One reporter told the news outlet that “it’s pretty damn clear the motivation is the money-based machine on the opinion side that drives all their business decisions, that drives a lot of their programming decisions.”

Another veteran journalist reportedly said he felt “incredibly angry” that the reputations of legitimate news people were being “dragged through the mud because of the buffoonish and dangerous actions of a few during that election.”

The "buffoonish and dangerous actions of a few" are continuing.  All to help a madman. 

Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch told an associate he believed Donald Trump was going "increasingly mad" after the then president refused to concede defeat in the 2020 election.

The madman wants retribution and to pardon his insurrectionists.  Some Sane Reds disagree.

Trump's Dump on Democracy

Another Trump toxic ego massage given by self.  

Update 6-11-22:  Ex-President Donald Trump dissed daughter Ivanka after she told the January 6th House committee that she accepted Attorney General Bill Barr's conclusion that election fraud was minimal and insufficient to change the outcome of the election.  Trump's twisted ego steamrolls family members telling the truth under oath.  

Trump's social media site is banning posts about Jan. 6th hearings.  Dictator rules.

Update 6-15-22:  A staffer for Vice President Mike Pence said Trump is the bully who inspired rioters to call for her boss to be hanged.  It's interesting to see the number of Red Team members making their way onto Trump's enemy list for speaking the truth (not associated with Donald's social media site).

Update 6-16-22:  Retired conservative Judge Luttig said this of Trump:

“For the past six years, I have watched and listened in disgust that not one single leader of ours with the moral authority, the courage and the will to stand up and say, ‘No, this is not who we are, this is not what America is and it’s not what we want to be,’ has done so.”

That more Republicans aren’t standing up to “this nonsense, this utter madness,” he said, is “the definition of failed leadership.”

Update 6-18-22:  Luttig called MAGA world a "clear and present danger to American democracy. 

Update 6-19-22:   At least two Red Team officials asked Trump for a pardon for their actions around Jan. 6th.  Jared was busy working on pardons as Trump's mob ravaged the Capital.  Did Trump issue secret pardons as he is unconstrained by law or precedence?

Update 7-4-22:  Former President and Mafia Don Trump wants the committee to ignore his attempts to burn down democracy and focus on people "burning down cities."  Huh?  There are people shooting up cities, but widespread arson?  Nope.  So far this year there have been 308 mass shootings.  

Update 7-13-22:  Following election results is so "non-Donald"

Update 8-26-22:  Yahoo News reported:

A reporter asked Barr why more Republicans did not simply come out and say that Trump’s claims that election fraud had prevented him from winning the 2020 election were, to use Barr's previous word, “bullshit.”

“The tactic that Trump is using to exert this control over the Republican Party is extortion,” Barr said of his former boss. “What other great leader has done this? Telling the party, ‘If it’s not me, I’m going to ruin your election chances by telling my base to sit home. And I’ll sabotage whoever you nominate other than me.’ It shows what he’s all about. He’s all about himself.”

Update 9-8-22:  Fifty-eight percent of respondents in the two-day poll - including one in four Republicans - said Trump's "Make America Great Again" movement is threatening America's democratic foundations

Update 9-10-22:   Trump's former White House lawyer Ty Cobb said former President Donald Trump risks not just prosecution, but disqualification from office under the 14th Amendment over the January riots.  

Update 9-15-22:   Trump threatened civil unrest if he is indicted for taking classified information to Mar-a-Lago.

Update 1-2-23:  Senior Trump aide Hope Hicks wrote after Jan. 6th:

"...We all look like domestic terrorists now.”

That they did.  Many still do.

Update 1-16-23:  Trump called the Capital rioters "great patriots" and their deserved prison sentences "a disgrace."  Spoken like a Chief Domestic Terrorist.

Update 2-3-23:   The Red Team went all out for election fraud in 2020:

"Comms is going to continue to fan the flame and get the word out about Democrats trying to steal this election. We’ll do whatever they need (inaudible) help with. Just be on standby in case there’s any stunts we need to pull.."

This Independent voter is not impressed.

Update 3-19-24:  Trump flip flopped on the Jan. 6th rioters.  Strangely, nobody cares that a petty, vengeful, easily distracted, sexual predator has a shot at returning to our country's seat of power.  The list of former Trump aides working against that very notion continues to grow.

Trump's campaign has gone full delusional with its portrayal of Jan. 6th.  The televised horror of that day is seared in my mind.  Trump celebrates his cult of violence and for that America suffers..

Red Team Blocks Investigation to Call it Partisan

The violent takeover of the U.S. Capital should be a high priority for investigation for all Americans, regardless of political party.  The Red Team is led by a pathetic person who cannot face himself in the mirror an anything but a landslide winner.  His political party has distorted itself to reflect what Trump wishes to see in each and every moment, recognizing he can swing positions at whim.

The Red Team wanted to put people on the investigating panel that played roles in mobilizing Trump's middle-aged cracker wilding.  When that ploy failed the Reds attacked the process as unduly partisan.  

It's sad that the Red Team had but two people out of 210 in whole House of Representatives interested in seeking the truth.  Every one of those members won their House Seat in an election their leader called the "greatest rigged election" of all time.

Trump lost because suburban moms no longer trusted him to keep their families safe.  The allure of the bad boyfriend from 2016 wore away with his endless ego filling drama.  I hope suburban moms don't bring the bad boyfriend back in 2024.  

Update 6-10-22:  Kevin McCarthy said Jan 6th was the fault of everybody in the country.

“I thought everybody in the country [bore] some responsibility based on what has been going on — the riots in the streets, the others." 

That's pitiful, even for a hack politician pandering to violent crackers.  McCarthy wasn't done saying stupid things in defense of his party's Supreme Leader.

"It is the most political and least legitimate committee in American history.  It has permanently damaged the House and divided this country."

The committee has done nothing of the sort.  Suburban moms want to know who was behind the attack that caused the Capital policewoman a traumatic brain injury and killed Officer Brian Sicknick.  Kevin is in the way of getting those questions answered.

Update 2-12-23:   Trump claimed election fraud after "a team of professional researchers he paid to try and find evidence of fraud came up empty-handed."  He got the report before January 6th. 

Update 11-9-23:  Red Team Rep. Steve Murphy wants to hold Biden family members who ignore subpoenas in contempt of court, the exact opposite stance he took over Steve Bannon's ignoring a House subpoena.  Insane Red Rep. Jim Jordan ignored January 6th committee subpoena.

Biden to Visit Saudi Crown Prince

President Joe Biden will visit Saudi Arabia sometime this summer.  High oil prices during an election year means the President has to set aside his concerns over the 2018 murder of U.S. journalist Jamal Khashoggi in a Saudi consulate.  Saudi dissidents "don’t understand this kind of dealing, or compromises, on American values, on human rights values."

Saudi dissidents may wish to consider that Trump's CIA Chief Gina Haspel observed the waterboarding of a Saudi national.

Testimony at a hearing last month in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, included a revelation about the former CIA director’s long and secretive career. James E. Mitchell, a psychologist who helped develop the agency’s interrogation program, testified that the chief of base at the time, whom he referred to as Z9A in accordance with court rules, watched while he and a teammate subjected al-Nashiri to “enhanced interrogation” that included waterboarding at the black site.

Z9A is the code name used in court for Haspel.

The U.S. charged Japanese soldiers for waterboarding a U.S. citizen in 1947.  

In 1947, the U.S. charged a Japanese officer, Yukio Asano, with war crimes for waterboarding a U.S. civilian. Asano was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor.

Haspel has not been charged in a crime.  She currently advises private equity chieftans on how to garner outsized profits in a complex global environment.

Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner started Affinity Partners and landed a $2 billion investment from a Saudi fund chaired by the murderous Crown Prince.

Enough of America's ruling elite prize the use of violence to achieve their greedy aims.  There is never enough power or money.  They believe the means justify the ends.  

For citizens expecting accountability, it's been a several decade long slog.  I don't expect it anytime soon.

Update 6-6-22:  The Shark went name calling golfers who chose not to affiliate with a Saudi backed golf tour.  Greg Norman called Jack Nicklaus a "hypocrite" and.Rory McIlory "brainwashed".

Greg Norman, the public face of the breakaway LIV Golf series (sponsored by Saudi Crown Prince MBS' Public Investment Fund), says the executives and agents who currently run golf “are conspiring against LIV to protect an antiquated system that prevents golfers from realizing their own power and worth amid a global movement of athlete empowerment.”

As for antiquated social systems in Saudi Arabia that don't involve the murder of a U.S. journalist:

Reports emerged that the women activists who pressed for the policy change had been arrested and imprisoned. As of this morning, 13 are reported to have been arrested; most are women. Apart from the driving issue, they have campaigned against so-called guardianship rules which require Saudi women to receive permission from a male relative before making many life decisions, like traveling.

Update 6-11-22:   The fiance of Jamal Khashoggi is horribly upset about the prospect of President Joe Biden meeting with the Saudi Crown Prince.

Update 6-14-22:  The Biden trip to Saudi Arabia to meet with the Crown Prince will occur in mid-July. 

Update 10-24-22:  The Crown Prince mocked President Biden according to the WSJ.

Update 10-26-22:  Crown Prince prefers Insane Red Team.

Biden aides believed they'd reached an agreement with the Saudis to increase oil production until December.  Instead of handing Biden a much-needed political win, the crown prince abandoned the deal.

Update 10-27-22:  Saudi Crown Prince seeks to humiliate President Biden.  That's a very poor ally.  The Prince intends to increase ties with nondemocratic China and Putin's Russia. 

Update 11-2-22:   Saudi surveillance, intimidation and pursuit of Saudis on U.S. soil have intensified as the kingdom steps up repression under its de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Update 11-18-22:  The Blue Lucys plan to shield the Saudi Crown Prince from a U.S. civil suit filed by the widow of WaPo journalist Jamaal Khashoggi. 

Update 11-19-22:  A former top State Department advisor called the move to protect the Saudi Crown Prince a bad strategy and is "carrying MBS's water."

Update 12-6-22:   The U.S. court case against the Crown Prince was dismissed under the guise of sovereign immunity, something the Prince did not have at the time of the execution.  The judge said his hands were tied by the Biden administration's recommendation to the court.  Thugs win.

Update 2-6-23:   U.S. tech giants plan to invest nearly $10 billion in Saudi Arabia.  Will that make it easier for the Crown Prince to imprison citizens for social media comments?

Update 5-5-23:  Biden will dispatch top aide Jake Sullivan to Saudi Arabia for meetings this Saturday.

Update 5-6-23:   The Saudi government plans to execute three tribesmen who protested against the new mega-city Neom.  The three resisted forced evictions.

Update 9-10-23:  President Biden shook hands with the Crown Prince at the G20 meeting in India.

Red Team Headlines Reveal New Low

Consider the following headlines:

Trump officials privately mocked pro-choice Senator Susan Collins for backing Brett Kavanaugh and called her a 'cheap date,' report says.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis reaches disgraceful new low in bullying Special Olympics

Rep. Louie Gohmert says Peter Navarro indictment means Republicans 'can't even lie to Congress or lie to an FBI agent or they're coming after you

Sen. Ben Sasse calls out ‘weirdos’ dividing country in fiery Reagan Foundation speech

Red Team officials admit to lying, manipulating fellow elected officials (while insulting them) and how fellow members cater to fringe elements in our country via social media.  

A lead contender for the White House in 2024, placed the developmentally disabled at greater health risk because he doesn't like public health.

In October 2020, a large study out of the United Kingdom in The Annals of Internal Medicine showed that people with Down syndrome who get COVID-19 are four times more likely to be hospitalized—and 10 times more likely to die—than the general population.

As for lying to Congress, that was made a crime in 1948.  Rep. Gohmert was born in 1953.  It's been against the law his whole life.

These headlines give me an uneasy feeling about America's political future.  It seems to be increasingly unhinged.  

Update 6-20-22:  A candidate for the U.S. Senate (Red Team) primary ran an ad showing him and a number of armed people in camouflage "hunting RINO's."   The candidate is a disgraced former governor with obvious mental health issues.  He recently met with a disgraced former president with obvious mental health issues.  They both see violence as appropriate ways to have their ego needs met.

There is violence in the future, I’m going to tell you,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said on ABC’s “This Week” program. “And until we get a grip on telling people the truth, we can’t expect any differently.” 

Update 8-1-22:  Rep. Matt Gaetz insulted women with a certain body shape (thumb) saying no one would get them pregnant so they don't need to get abortions.  How many thumb shaped women live in Gaetz' d--istrict?  

Update 8-28-22:  Red Team school board members in Fairfax, Virginia laughed at an autistic teen who sang the National Anthem at a school board meeting.

Update 10-21-22:  QANUT Lara Logan got dropped by Red Team media source Newsmax.   Rep. Lauren Boebert galloped full speed into the End Times.  Given that 30 to 35 percent (90 to 100 million people) of the US population is evangelica,l Boebert is not very representative.

Update 11-30-22:  QANUT leader sexually abused a teenage girl.  Followers gave him so much money he bought a $1.7 million mansion.

Abbott Goes for Advisory Committee on Uvalde Massacre

Texas Governonr Greg Abbott will not call a special session of the Texas legislature to deal with the Uvalde elementary school massacre.  Abbott chose to mobilize an advisory committee, the same strategy he used after a school shooting killed 10 in Santa Fe, Texas.

Abbott did call special sessions in 2021 to deal with "disallowing a student from competing in University Interscholastic League athletic competitions designated for the sex opposite to the student's sex at birth" and critical race theory.  Prior political boogeymen garnered special sessions but not the real massacre of innocent children that required DNA to identify the remains.

Uvalde victims families have no recourse against the gun manufacturer or authorities who failed to protect their loved ones due to legal immunity.  Authorities continue revising their story and timeline of the events of that heartbreaking day.  

 There have been numerous mass shootings in Texas during Abbott's reign.  

Suburban moms, are you listening?

Update 6-5-22:  "Powerful Man Does Nothing" is the editorial headline for a San Antonio newspaper.

Update10-19-22:  Governor Abbott signed the bill that required.

Millions of Texas children will get identification kits designed for parents to collect fingerprints and DNA to be used in case their kids are in an emergency such as a school shooting.

Nearly 4 million Texans from kindergarten through grade eight will bring home a tri-fold pamphlet this month in which parents can place their children’s fingerprints, photo and a DNA sample.

No change in Texas gun laws.  The pamphlets are part of Greg Abbott's legacy.

Update 10-29-22:  DPS Chief said his department did not fail the people of Uvalde.  There is video and audio that shows otherwise.  This is Abbott's Hurricane Katrina and the DPS Chief is his Michael Brown.

Update 5-7-23:  Texas experienced 16 mass shootings thus far in 2023 (29 deaths, 58 injured).  The latest at a shopping mall in Allen, Texas resulted in eight innocent deaths.  A witness said one dead young lady had no face as a result of the shooter using an AR-15 style rifle (a weapon of war).  Texas officials have little information for the public.
