There is a God! Texas says it will leave the Union…and a return to slavery

Texas AG Ken Paxton is awaiting trial on a felony indictment for fraud.  Our sources say Ken has been fishing for a Trump pardon as he faces up to 15 years in prison…

MSNBC: The Texas Republican Party released a statement that amounted to a call for secession after the Supreme Court refused to overturn the election.

The Texas Republicans suggested, “Perhaps law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution.”

The sentence above was the Republican Party of a state putting it out there that the states that joined the lawsuit to overturn a democratic election should come together and form their own country.

Republicans are literally thinking about a civil war because Donald Trump lost. Texas and their fellow red states would be free to go. Trump has been an admirer of Confederate statues while in office, so it is hard to think of anyone better to be the next Jefferson Davis.

Republicans are upset because their plot to destroy the electoral system and trample on the US Constitution has failed. Texas and all of the other states and members of Congress who joined them already committed a seditious act, so secession seems like the next step for a group of people who truly hate democracy.


Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton was indicted 5 years ago. He still hasn’t gone to trial.

Read our timeline covering delays and side battles in the long-running securities fraud case against Paxton.

July 2020 marks five years since Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton was indicted on felony securities fraud charges. The criminal case against him has been a cloud over his head during nearly all of his time in statewide office, including a narrow reelection win in 2018.

The indictments are now old enough, as progressive groups have cheekily noted, to attend kindergarten.

Paxton is accused of persuading investors to buy stock in a technology firm without disclosing that he would be compensated for it. He has maintained his innocence and criticized the prosecution as politically motivated.

Why is it taking so long to take the state’s top lawyer to trial? Since the case began, it has been delayed by side battle after side battle, including a still-unresolved dispute over how much to pay the special prosecutors handling the case and a yearslong dispute over where Paxton should be tried.

Paxton’s case has bounced from trial courts in North Texas, all the way up to the state’s highest court for criminal matters, back down to a trial court in Harris County — and it may go back to his home in Collin County again before the issues are resolved.

Check out our timeline below of the case’s twists and turns. We’ll update it with new stories from The Texas Tribune and other outlets as the legal battle proceeds.

  1. GOOD RIDDANCE if Texas leave the US of North A.
    Their heroes at the Alamoe (Davy Crockett) ceded from Mexico because Mexico had abolished slavery. Then they left the USA for the Confederacy to go on preserving it.
    Texas has always been the stinking infected wart on the US. Hitler loved to read cowboy stories about Texas.

    • Correction of mis-spelling: Should be: “Hitler LOVED to read stories of Texas cowbouys and frontiersmen”.
      At age 15, i hitchhiked through Texas via N. Mex, from s. Fransisco back to Colombie Mo. Understood at once why Janis Joplin got so desperate and later on approvingly watched the film “Last Picture Show”.
      My apologies to all good Texans. I’m shure they must axist — just like there may be good Jews too in Amerika — if they would only descist from abstaining to condemn their original sinning!

  2. … Civil Wars, Oliver Cromwell’s family name was originally William’s and they came from Wales.
    For more background see the book Vicissitudes of Families by
    Bernard Burke, p.26.
    “The Welsh name Williams is a patronymic surname derived from the personal name William, which is in turn derived from the Old German names Willihelm and Willelm (the Norman French version was Guillaume).
    Early Origins of the Guillaume family.
    The surname Guillaume was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where they held a family seat and were conjecturally descended from the Comte D’Evroux, in the castle of Evreux.”

    Small world this.

  3. “A Texas state lawmaker says he plans to introduce a referendum pushing for the state to secede from the U.S.”
    That, folks, is why much of the Republican Party has become a faith-based fact-free personality cult. Trump is their fearless leader and they hang on his every word. They are true believers who are obviously detached from reality and will follow him right over a cliff if he tells them to do it. I’m guessing that the majority of them think the Earth was created exactly 6024 years ago because they’ve counted up the “begats” in the Scofield Reference Bible. Sadly, they won’t be going away any time soon.

  4. Interesting that Joe Biden’s Great Grandfather Worked For The East India Company.
    “Ian Biden, his sister Sonia Francis nee Biden, and their mother Angelina Biden are based in Nagpur. So is Ian and Sonia’s first cousin Rowena Biden. Ian said that a letter written by his maternal grandfather Leslie Biden to Senator Joe Biden in 1981 discussed ancestors John Biden and his wife Anne Beaumont who were married in 1781. CNBC-TV18 has a copy of the letter but is not publishing it on request”.

    “Beaumont Family History
    Beaumont Name Meaning
    English (of Norman origin) and French: habitational name from any of the five places in Normandy or several others elsewhere in France so named. The place name comes from Old French beu, bel ‘fair’, ‘lovely’ + mont ‘hill’.”
    “Early Origins of the Beaumont family
    The surname Beaumont was first found in Dorset and Gloucestershire, where “Roger de Belmont appears in [the] Domesday [Book] as chief tenant. According to Sir H. Ellis, he was a near kinsman of the Conqueror, being lineal descendant of that king’s great grandfather. Some trace the noble English families from the Viscounts Beaumont of Normandy, and others from the blood-royal of France.”
