Rick Perry Indicted:
Another Democratic Party Dirty Trick

Powerline, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 8/16/2014 8:29:37 AM

A grand jury in Travis County, Texas, indicted Governor Rick Perry today. Why? For exercising his constitutional prerogative by threatening to veto, and then vetoing, an appropriation to support the public corruption unit in Travis County’s district attorney’s office. This followed the arrest of the county’s district attorney, Democratic Party activist Rosemary Lehmberg, for drunk driving, after she was found “with an open bottle of vodka in the front passenger seat of her car in a church parking lot in Austin.” Ms. Lehmberg served 45 days in jail.The Travis County district attorney’s office has long been a cesspool of corruption.

Republicans should mount a strong counteroffensive in his defense, as they should have for Tom Delay and Scott Walker. The Dem/progressives get away with this stuff only because we let them.

Nevermind, tho, that with each passing day, the squatter fraud in the White House is intentionally and illegally shredding our Constitional on a daily basis. Can my level of disgust and anger at this filthy party be any greater? I guess I´m one of those Homeland Insecurity described as being angry at "perceived government overreach". This drunken pig should be working at Kmart.

Rick Perry will be fine. But, his defenders need to be sure the general public understands what he is in trouble for doing. He robbed no bank and mugged no elderly man. He threatened to veto the funding for this out-of-control-state officeholder. He´s not indicted for the veto, but for the threat.

Mark Levin was raging about this last night and the Democrats´ soviet style abuse of power. He couldn´t be more right. The Democrats are completely destroying this nation and the rule of law.

My fantasy come true would be that a judge would dismiss this case outright saying that Perry´s actions were clearly within a governor´s purview. He would further say that the courts have no time to adjudicate cases that are malicious and politically driven. Of course that is just a fantasy, but who knows, maybe it could happen. I can dream can´t I?

I wonder if McConnell, McCain, Graham, or Boehner will dare say anything. No, they won´t, not even defend a republican, not even themselves, because it is those conservatives that are bad, democrats they agree with. So please don´t spoil the revelry at cocktail hour and the society balls, by asking these people to stand for anything, or oppose their democrat friends.

This will backfire so badly, Travis County, Texas will regret it for a long time. How many people saw or even KNEW about the demonrat-D.A. being arrested for drunk driving? How many people saw this despicable woman railing against the officer who was doing his duty? Who knew she was restrained at the jail because she was threatening officers? How many people actually saw her point her fingers in the sign of a GUN at officers? If a 2nd grader had done that, they would have been suspended from school! If the idiots in Travis County had not "indicted" Rick Perry, this would have been forgotten! What a joke! So I say, Good for you Austin! You just keep doing what you are doing so the good Governor will have a LANDSLIDE election in 2016! No...seriously....Thanks!

Another attempt at political assassination against a conservative. Is this why Obama rushed back to the whitehouse? The power elite will not accept any conservatives. Have to wonder if this has anything to do with the border issue. They would like to discredit him, silence him, and put him in jail.

That makes three GOP governors, all possible 2016 contenders, that have had some kind of contrived Democrat smear brought forth. Perry needs to take control of this right away and use his power of Governor wisely. He should do whatever it takes to put names and faces on this smear campaign. Sunlight has a nice way of cleansing a situation. Like Lois Lerner they need to be held responsible.

#8, I totally agree with you. All Republicans, moderates and conservatives should rally around Rick. This is not about Rick Perry, it´s about our vanishing freedoms and the rule of Law.

When the prior abuserof this office indicted Kay Bailey Hutchison, the trial lasted less than five minutes. As soon as the judge called the DA to present his case, he had to admit that there was no evidence and he had no case to present. You would think that Ronnie Earle would have resigned in embarrassment, but he was still there too drag out the case against DeLay for over four election cycles.

I would love to see Perry call a special session of the Texas legislature and pass a bill to remove authority from the Travis Co DA. But then Tom Strauss, the Speaker of the TX house is unreliable and may side with the Democrats. Tom Strauss must not be re-elected. Texans,contact your state Representative and insist that he vote against Strauss.

Because Texas symbolizes everything good about America, Obama cannot stand it. He told his people to get Perry and Perry is now gotten.

But this is Texas and it isn´t over.

As a diversionary tactic from Obama´s myriad failures, this doesn´t cut it. It will be another exploding cigar for Obama and for the Democrat Party. You would think they´d have learned something from the Scott Walker fiasco but apparently, they are a little slow.

It´s jaw-dropping amazing to witness the hapless Republicans abide their stronger voices being politically targeted and taken down, over and over... and over, from Tom Delay to Ted Stevens to Chris Christie to now Rick Perry, a Dem takedown work in progress.

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

With his address to the nation Wednesday evening, President Obama revealed that he is a leader in deep denial about the threat the United States faces, and about the steps that are necessary to deal with it. In his remarks, Obama offered up a series of delusions, each of which point to the ultimate defeat of the United States in the war he has embarked upon. Delusion #1: Obama still thinks ISIS is the JV team. Here’s how he began his speech: We can’t erase every trace of evil from the world, and small groups of killers have the capacity to do great harm.

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican.

If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington.
