God Bless Texas – Tea Party Nation
February 17, 2015
God Bless Texas. What else can you say about the second greatest state in the Union. This is the state that gave us the Alamo and Ted Cruz. This is the state that if the Obama Regime were not interfering, could single handedly lead the nation out of the Great Obama Depression.
What is it?
Last night, a Federal Judge in Texas issued a restraining order blocking Barack Obama’s executive Amnesty. Judge Andrew Hansen wrote that the Plaintiffs (the states with real Americans who sued to stop Obama) would suffer irreparable injury if the law were allowed to go forward before the courts had adjudicated the matter.
Score one for the good guys. Former Texas Attorney General and now Texas Governor Greg Abbot led the fight. Abbot is one of the sane Republicans who understands what Amnesty will do to America.
The order on the injunction will immediately be appealed to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. Fortunately among the active judges of the 5th Circuit, there is a 2 to 1 majority of judges appointed by Republicans. There is a strong probability that the injunction will be upheld by the 5th Circuit and probably the Supreme Court too, though that will only be by a 5-4 vote.
The real question now is what will the Regime do?
The law has never been a barrier to the actions of Barack Obama. He has deliberately ignored numerous laws and simply rewritten laws if he saw fit. Will Obama just ignore the ruling of the Court in Texas?
Given his narcissism, there is no telling.
If the Republicans in Congress had any sense, they would now pass the Homeland Security funding bill with one addition. They should attach a rider prohibiting the government from spending any money to appeal Judge Hansen’s decision or to even defend the lawsuit.
Meanwhile, God bless Texas!
