Wendy Davis’ ex-husband: “They’ve
asked me not to talk to reporters”

Legal Insurrection, by William A. Jacobson

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/21/2014 6:30:18 AM

Wendy Davis, the progressive movement’s Texas darling because of her pro-late term abortion filibuster, is withering under revelations that much of her narrative of struggle and financial hardship is misleading at best, fabricated at worst. The wagons are being circled around her with claims of a War on Women and sexism … all because the truth has come out via an interview with her husband by the Dallas Morning News, and other investigation. (Snip)Here’s the key thing. The Wendy Davis campaign has been trying to keep Jeff Davis from speaking to the press for months.

FTA - "Only the progressive movement and the big money donors didn’t have a clue as to what they were buying into."

Maybe, maybe not. All I know is that this is the kind of stuff like this seems to be a pre-requisite to becoming a disingenuous Rat!

Your past is immaterial to Democrats. It is all about the message you deliver. If you toe the progressive line, you are enthusiastically supported. Evidently championing the sacrament of abortion is a sure way to win democrat hearts. Women like Wendy Davis are fundamentally flawed and totally unfit for office. It says a lot about your character when you allow yourself to be a cheerleader for murder.

besides all the new facts surfacing about Abortion Wendy, there is no mention of her 1966 law suit against Fort Worth Star Telegram for mental and physical pain over a editorial on her campaign tactics?
She sued and pursued for four years in two lower courts and lastly the Texas Supreme Court. The suit was frivolous and thrown out in summary judgement each time.

Article: "...the progressive movement and the big money donors didn’t have a clue as to what they were buying into."

You´d think by now that "progressives" would have enough at least enough sense to realize that they, all of them, are liars. They lie about everything under the sun. Any "progressive" candidate must be vetted from sun up to sundown.

Anything a "progressive" says must be doubted from the first word to the last. "Progressives" are drama queens who simply MUST have dramatic, inspirational life stories that reveal admirable qualities of grit and determination to improve the human race. Only, no "progressive" has such qualities. Hence the lies.

Wendy, you just another blowhard lying "progressive" crawling out from under another rock. We on to you guys. You are liars. All of you. Every last one.

Wendy Davis is a wet cardboard cutout being propped up by her party. O´Donnell was completely abandoned by her party and openly opposed by the party establishment. Yet, she did better on election day than Davis is likely to do.

But Davis is more viable. Right!

The Dallas News story has a bit more meat, including this line about her first divorce:

Under terms of the divorce, he got a boat, the mobile home and the responsibility for the mortgage on it. She got a 3-year-old Pontiac Grand Prix, a 1972 Firebird and a 1967 Chevy pickup. Davis was 21.

So she got three cars, and got to live in the mobile home he was paying for. I guess he lived on his boat.

In his initial divorce filing, Jeff Davis said the marriage had failed, citing adultery on her part and conflicts that the couple could not overcome. The final court decree makes no mention of infidelity, granting the divorce solely “on the ground of insupportability.”

Adultery? I guess she had lined up her next mark.

His talking points have no doubt been given to him with a nice paycheck provided after the campaign:

1) "I was a horrible husband and she deserved better."
2) "She needed her freedom, and I was willing to allow it."
3) "I don´t know what came over me. Given the chance again, I never would have done it."
4) "Women like her are rare. Men like me are way too common."

While lawmakers skip out of Washington for spring break, the Capitol Rotunda is undergoing its first makeover in more than 50 years. With more than 1,300 cracks marring its exterior shell, the rotunda is closed to the public from April 12 through April 28, in phase one of the two-year, $60 million restoration project. During the 17-day closure, workers are installing safety netting around the iconic 8.9 million-pound cast iron dome. "This netting will ensure the safety of all who enter the Capitol for the duration of the two-year project allowing the Rotunda to be accessible for the duration of the project after

Monstrous cruise ships that ruin the view – and even block out the sun – for people strolling down Venice’s Giudecca Canal, will, from the end of November, no longer pass close to the lagoon city, cruise ship owners have pledged. From that date vessels weighing over 96,000 tonnes will eschew the route that currently sees them pass close to St Mark’s Square, while, according to campaigners who want them banned, unleashing huge currents that threatens to undermine Venice’s delicate foundations. The Cruise Lines International Association made the pledge during talks on Thursday with Italy’s Transport and Environment Ministers. The development follows a

President Benjamin Harrison had a crisis. A child had let go of a balloon in the White House, during the Easter Egg roll on April 22, 1889. And we all know how hard it can be to get a balloon down from the corner of a ceiling, lest deal with the child suddenly stripped of a most prized and buoyant plaything. The guests noticed. "Here it remained during the afternoon, and was subject of universal comment as to the best means to be resorted to in order to get it down again," a Washington Post reporter wrote of the day´s

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.

At a petite 5’3’’, Sage Santangelo may not look like a combat fighter at first glance.

Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

Suppose a scientific conference on cancer prevention never addressed smoking, on the grounds that in a free society you can´t change private behavior, and anyway, maybe the statistical relationships between smoking and cancer are really caused by some other third variable. Wouldn´t some suspect that the scientists who raised these claims were driven by something—ideology, tobacco money—other than science?
