Texas capitulates

Lots of people, at various times recently, have pointed me at Texas HB 1937. This bill would have made the TSA's groping procedures illegal, at least in Texas. I didn't think the bill would ever become law, but I didn't think it would be because the Texas legislature would roll over at the first hint of resistance from the federal government.
"If HR [sic] 1937 were enacted, the federal government would likely seek an emergency stay of the statute," the letter read, on U.S. Department of Justice, Western District of Texas, stationery. "Unless or until such a stay were granted, TSA would likely be required to cancel any flight or series of flights for which it could not ensure the safety of passengers and crew.
stopaustinscanners.org sees the situation this way:
Let’s be absolutely clear here: the Federal Government just threatened to make Texas a no-fly zone if they can’t sexually assault us.
Nevertheless, the legislature folded:
Senate sponsor Dan Patrick (R-Houston) pulled down HB 1937. But he didn't pull it until after some firey rhetoric about the principles of the bill, as well as allegations that TSA representatives were "lobbying" the Texas Senate today. "I will pull HB 1937 down, but I will stand for Liberty in the state of Texas," Patrick said.
Classic political move: "I was for liberty before I was against it, but I'm still for it." Somebody should explain to Senator Patrick that you can't kill this bill and simultaneously claim to stand for liberty. The two are mutually exclusive. Jackass.


  1. Dan Patrick is a mental nut case. You can't believe anything from that scumbag.

  2. The TSA allows flights in from all over the world so they never can claim control and safety. Besides the TSA already cannot "ensure" our safety considering all the items screeners fail to stop during evaluations. The ensurance, like that given by most Federal beauracracies, means crap because you can't even sue for damages when they do fail.

  3. The TX bill had unanimous support in the house and senate committee, but the Lt Gov did his Masters bidding and delivered DOJ's No Fly Threat. The Lt Gov also ran CIA's Cocaine Coup in Bolivia with Nazi Klas Barbi The Butcher of Lyons, and actually had a campaign ad of a German soldier standing in front of a US flag.

    But Alex Jones kicked his ass today, probably costing him a job soliciting bribes in the US Senate. Watch the censored videos at infowars d*t c*m.

    The Lt Gov also blocked a bill to outlaw Sanctuary Cities that give criminal immunity to millions of illegal aliens.

    Civil War and WW3 are one day closer.

  4. Meanwhile, here's what US prosecutors are doing when they aren't enforcing No Fly Zones over USA:

    Google "FBI Joy Ride Wrecks Ferrari, DOJ Refuses to Pay Damages". That's a stolen $750K Ferrari...


Please be relevant, civil, and brief... in that order.
