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.

This is going to backfire so bad on the Democrats, and they are too stupid to realize it.

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!

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.

David Cameron vows to defeat ISIS

UK Prime Minister David Cameron said Saturday that the death of British aid worker Alan Henning at the hands of ISIS was "absolutely abhorrent" and "unforgivable." Britain must work with its allies to do "everything it can" to defeat ISIS in the region and at home, he said. "What we see with this organization is there´s no level of depravity to which they will not sink. No appeals made any difference," he said.

But it could have been much worse.Questions over who the hackers are and the approach of their attack concern government and industry officials. Also troubling is that about nine other financial institutions — a number that has not been previously reported — were also infiltrated by the same group of overseas hackers, according to people briefed on the matter.

Behind the rotten culture is arrogance. After uniformed officers failed to take out 42-year-old Omar J. Gonzalez when he hopped over the fence and ran into the White House, the Secret Service issued a statement saying the officers “showed restraint.” The statement provoked laughter among senior FBI officials. But in its arrogance, the Secret Service thought it could get away with issuing such an outrageous claim and the public would accept it.With similar hubris, the agency leaves the doors to the White Horse unlocked. The idea is that the vaunted Secret Service can handle any problem and can waive the

Accountability: Turns out the Secret Service — which has one job to do — let a knife-wielding intruder all the way into the East Room of the White House. Can´t anyone in government do anything right these days? Time was when the Secret Service seemed an exemplar of professionalism and dedication, an agency with a focused mission and largely immune from the bureaucratic bumbling inherent to big government. In recent years, it´s seemed more like Animal House. The intruder blew past one guard and was stopped only by an off-duty officer. And this was one of hundreds of apparent security breaches.

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.”

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control.

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents?

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state.

Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
