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.

Another misuse of power by a Texas DA, even worse than the Tom Delay fiasco.

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 dangerously dumb party that can´t protect its own, let alone effectively return fire. Pathetic.

Obama´s Speech on ISIS, in Plain English

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.

Some Capitol Hill lawmakers are baffled. What does President Obama want from Congress as he begins the U.S. military escalation in Iraq and Syria? The question wasn´t answered by the president´s much-anticipated speech Wednesday night. First, Obama seemed to tell Congress to mind its own business. "I have the authority to address the threat from ISIL," he said, indicating he didn´t need or want any permission from the legislative branch to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.Then Obama added, "But I believe we are strongest as a nation when the president and Congress work together.

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.

President Obama on Wednesday night outlined an open-ended campaign to combat the threat posed by the Islamic State, significantly expanding the counter­terrorism strategy that has been a hallmark of his presidency.Obama said in a prime-time speech televised from the White House that the United States will join “with our friends and allies to degrade, and ultimately destroy, the terrorist group known as ISIL,” using an alternative acronym for the group that has emerged in Iraq and Syria.Saying the United States is meeting the threat with “strength and resolve,” the president also sought to assuage the concerns of Americans who are

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

(Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions.

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL).
