Above The Law Texas Sheriff Tells Trump To Shove His Orders Up His …

AJR| It’s time to get rid of the riff-raff that still hangs around post-Obama.

Far too many people feel empowered by the lawlessness Obama allowed. Further, Obama fostered in the nuttiest ideas in the history of the United States.

In Texas, Governor Greg Abbott was forced to step in when a sheriff refused to enforce President Trump’s executive orders.Governor Abbott has made it clear that he won’t allow sanctuary cities in the state of Texas. So far, Abbott has blocked $1.5 million in grant money to Travis County, due to their sheriff.

Sheriff Sally Hernandez has declared that she would only cooperate with federal law enforcement for illegals who were caught committing the crimes of murder, human trafficking, and sexual assault. So if you are killed by an illegal driving drunk, tough luck. If you are robbed, even at gunpoint, those banditos will not be touched by Hernandez.

As Breitbart reported on Hernandez activities, as they relate to illegals caught by law enforcement:

Despite the loss of state law enforcement grants, Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez followed through and released 39 criminal aliens during the first two days of her sanctuary policy.

Records obtained by Breitbart Texas from the Travis County Sheriff’s Office revealed that “Sanctuary Sally” released 37 criminal aliens from custody on February 1. Two more criminal aliens were released on the following day. The sheriff’s office stated that Sheriff Hernandez declined 191 immigration detainers that were received by her office before February 1. Eight more immigration detainers received after February 1 were also declined. The sheriff also declined four requests from immigration officials to be notified of the pending release of the criminal aliens in her custody.

Sheriff Hernandez did not refuse all requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. Thirty immigration detainers that were received by her office before the February 1 change in policy were honored by the office. The sheriff accepted three immigration detainers that were received after her policy went into effect on February 1. She also accepted two requests for notification of pending release.

Sanctuary Sally

The Texas governor didn’t mince words, as he discussed how to remedy the defiance of the law. Abbott said that he would deal with Travis County by removing funds from the county.

Next, Abbott threatened on national television that Hernandez would either work with federal law enforcement or be terminated. Further, the governor of Texas was clear that these policies applied universally to all sheriffs.

Uphold sanctuary policies and you are gone.

In case you wonder how important it was for Trump to win, and for Republicans to gain so many governorships, you’re getting the picture. In the case of President Trump, he’s not just posturing.

The mayors who remain in defiance of the president’s order will lose money and lots of it. New York could lose $7 billion alone. Let’s see if we can put a price tag on resistance.

Texas Sheriff Shares His Perfect Nationwide Plan For How To Deal With Liberals And Their Sanctuary Cities

The debate over sanctuary cities is one of the many discussions in today’s day and age that quickly devolves into a shouting match filled with name-calling and baseless accusations.

Unsurprisingly, the overwhelming majority of the name-calling emanates from the Left.

When presented with simple questions by someone that doesn’t feel that sanctuary policies are a good idea at all, the knee jerk liberal reaction is to portray the questioner as if he or she is some sort of abominable human being.

Absent in the barrage of insults is an answer to the actual question that has been posed.

If one feels so strongly about something, why is it so hard to craft an eloquent response that clearly outlines their position?

That remains unclear, and the conversation will never advance until those that can’t have discussions like grown-ups come to terms with that.

Here’s some food for thought for the safe space crowd to mull over while they are memorizing the daily liberal talking points.

Texas sanctuary city crackdown should go nationwide

Mad World News passes along a well-thought argument against sanctuary policies from someone that deals with them on a firsthand basis.

A Texas sheriff has grown tired of open borders advocates who lobby for sanctuary cities where criminal illegals are welcomed with open arms, and he is speaking out.

Jackson County Sheriff Andy Louderback — who is a four-term sheriff, former Sheriffs Association of Texas president, and current legislative director living in Jackson County — has six words for illegal alien-loving liberals and their sanctuary cities.

In a new op-ed for The Hill, Texas Sheriff Andy Louderback outlines the many reasons which sanctuary cities are a terrible idea, for both American citizens, legal immigrants, and those who invade our borders illegally. According to Fox News, the sheriff wants Texas’ “sanctuary city crackdown to go nationwide.”

Rather than following the lead of the Left by dropping a fistful of insults, Louderback rifles through a number of different points that bolster his argument.

“Sanctuary policies create a neon welcome sign for illegal aliens,” he writes.

“But laws like Texas’ anti-sanctuary city law S.B. 4 turn that light off. This law should be a model for other jurisdictions across the country when it comes to cracking down on sanctuary policies and boosting the relationships between state, local and federal law enforcement officials,” he adds.

“As an elected Texas sheriff who works along one of the biggest human trafficking corridors in the country — U.S. 59 — having a working relationship with immigration officials is essential to tackle this massive problem,” continues Louderback.

“If more municipalities were held accountable for the actions of criminal aliens after they’re released from police custody with an active ICE detainer request, you would see far fewer jurisdictions with sanctuary policies,” write Louderback.

“As a law enforcement official, I feel personally responsible for the lives of everyone in my county, and Texas’ new sanctuary cities law gives me the tools I need to do my job,” the sheriff boldly declares.

Louderback is clearly not a fan of sanctuary cities, and it certainly doesn’t sound like there’s anything that would change his mind. He thinks they need to go, and he hopes to see a nationwide crackdown.

However, there’s a rather big difference between how he’s digging his feet into the ground and the way that many sanctuary city advocates tend to carry themselves.

He states his case, backs it up with facts, and provides some serious food for thought for those that may not agree with him along the way.

It’s really not all that hard to do, especially when the thing you are arguing for actually makes sense.

If you can’t make that happen with the things you’re so passionate about, then there’s a good chance that those things don’t make a ton of sense.

Guess Who’s First State In Nation To Ban Sanctuary Cities? It’s Official!

We are all very well aware of how quickly sanctuary cities have gotten completely out of control, as former President Obama began the allowance of such cities.

Since cities have determined themselves to be “sanctuary” to those illegals who disobeyed our laws by entering this country, and even more shocking, came here to break criminal laws. Law and order have turned into chaos in these cities, to the point where local law enforcement refuse to comply with federal officials and handing over criminal illegal suspects to these federal agencies.

Well, enough is enough! The state of Texas has had its fill of sanctuary statuses in their cities and counties, and with help from his legislature, Governor Abbott signed a bill to fully ban sanctuary cities and to punish those local law enforcement who aid and abet criminal illegal aliens.

From Breitbart:

Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed the State’s sanctuary city bill into law Sunday night during a Facebook Live event from his office. The new law is now the toughest anti-sanctuary city law in the United States and provides for criminal and civil penalties for police chiefs and sheriff’s that refuse to honor immigration detainers.

“Let’s be clear about something. We all support legal immigration. It helped to build America and Texas,” the governor said before signing the bill. “Legal immigration is different from harboring people who have committed dangerous crimes. This law cracks down on policies like the Travis County sheriff who declared she would not detain known criminals accused of violent crimes. Those policies are sanctuary city policies and won’t be tolerated in Texas.”

The bill, Senate Bill 4 by Senator Charles Perry (R-Lubbock), passed both chambers of the legislature before coming to Abbott’s desk for signature. The law will go into effect on September 1, 2017. This provides time for departments like the Travis County Sheriff’s Office to come into compliance…

Governor Abbott made the sanctuary city issue anemergency item for the Texas Legislature during his State of the State Address in January. The Texas Senate acted on the issue right away, passing SB4 in February. The bill went to the House where it sat until passage on April 27. The Senate confirmed the changes made by the House and sent the bill to Governor Abbott on May 3.

It is time that each and every state take a look at Governor Abbott’s law. He was easily able to work with both his house and senate to make this bill happen. By signing this bill, he has made it know to illegals, sanctuary cities, and local law enforcement that the rule of law is greater than their own personal viewpoints.

Well done, Texas!

WATCH: Joe Biden Says Man Who Stopped Texas Church Shooter Never Should Have Had That Gun

Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared on NBC’s “Today” on Monday where he said the hero who shot the Texas church gunman should not have had the weapon he used to stop the murder spree.

Biden’s remark came as a response to a question from someone in the audience who asked him to justify the Democrat’s call for more gun control — even though the shooter was stopped by a good guy with a gun.

“Well, first of all, the kind of gun being carried he shouldn’t be carrying,” Biden said. “Assault weapons are . . . I wrote the last serious gun control law that was written and was law for 10 years, and it outlawed assault weapons and it outlawed weapons with magazines that had a whole lot of bullets and so you can kill a whole lot of people a lot more quickly.”

Biden continued by saying that it is rational that some people not own guns but that there is nothing that can be done if a crazy person obtains a gun legally.



Look Who’s Been Indicted, Facing Corruption Charges — Democrats Can’t Believe Their Ears

There seems to be a running joke going around that says, “If a Democrat hasn’t committed a crime in your neighborhood yet, wait a minute.” While that may not be technically right, it calls attention to a growing perception in the American public’s eyes that, although Republicans may be corrupt and not doing what they said they’d do after the election is over, it is the Democrat that is being busted for the really abhorrent crimes of rape, molestation, lascivious behavior, promoting prostitution, supporting pedophiles, evading taxes, running savings and loans scams, selling uranium to the Russians, etc., etc.

The perception is growing because, quite frankly, the headlines seem to indicate that to be a criminal means to belong to the Democrat Party. There’s no two ways about it. While the Fake News Industrial Complex may be attempting to tamp down the occurrences by ignoring literally half of the reports, there’s no denying that the Left has a virtual monopoly on felonious behavior.

Enter 12-time-elected Dawnna Dukes of Texas! This woman is truly a poster child for the Jackass Party’s run of the mill felons. She was just caught coming to work under the influence of Morphine, had missed a full 65% of her shifts at work, and had paid an online psychic in excess of $51K in taxpayer money!

The Gateway Pundit:

Another day, another corrupt Democrat.

Texas Democrat State Rep. Dawnna Dukes is facing corruption charges; her trial is set for October 16th.

Travis County prosecutors claim Dukes showed up to the Capitol impaired, hid a cell phone from investigators and spent over $51,000 on an online psychic.

Dukes apparently used her own money for the psychic; the court documents do not indicate that she used taxpayer money.

Austin-American Statesman reported:

According to the filing, Dukes paid an online psychic $51,348 from December 2014 to January 2016, totaling nearly $1,000 per week.

In other “extraneous acts” listed in the filing, prosecutors say Dukes:

• Was absent for roll call 65 percent of the time during the 2017 legislative regular session, and 36 percent of the time in the special session.
• Responded to a search warrant for her cellphone by providing investigators a phone that did not match the identification number on the phone they had requested
• Was noticeably impaired while trying to perform legislative duties at the Capitol and showed up late to a House Appropriations Committee hearing on March 29, stating, “I know I’m talking a lot. I’m full of morphine and will be headed out of here soon.”
• Agreed to a contract with the Austin school district for her company, DM Dukes and Associates, to provide business evaluations but subcontracted the work to a consulting firm. The district paid Dukes $514,224 from May 2015 to March 2016.
• Arrived late to court settings on June 30 and Aug. 21. Judge Brad Urrutia threatened to hold Dukes in contempt if she does it again.
• Failed to submit in a timely fashion both a campaign finance report before the 2016 election and a 2017 personal financial statement. She was fined $1,000.

When someone is on the hook for that much misconduct, one would believe that the book would be thrown at them. My gut tells me that this woman will smooth things out with the court system and the judge by admitting that she was wrong, promising to go to rehab for “her disease” and ensure that the money that she used will be paid back with community service, perhaps by working in the library for a week or two, straightening up the Dewey Decimal System.

I don’t trust anymore that government officials, no matter how much damage they do to the reputations of their district, will own up and pay the ultimate price for their transgressions. With the way that one scratches the other’s back in the corrupt halls of “justice,” it’s difficult to be a true believer in the American judicial system. I’ve already lost faith in the American system of government.

Texas Mayor Hears About Sharia Court Being Held In Her City, What She Does Next Is Epic

The time has come to take a stand against any way of life that threatens United States law.

It’s clear that many Muslims living in our communities wish to overthrow our laws and government. While they abuse freedom of religion in America, they seek to establish Sharia law.

Sharia law is incompatible with the United States. It violates our most fundamental freedoms and liberties. It is a rival government system that has no place in a sovereign nation like America. Yet many Muslims in our country seek to impose this religious system not only on their communities, but on every American.

Already we have seen states take action against this kind of sick and evil practice. Yet, Muslims continue to push Sharia law — knowing it is illegal.

In Texas — of all places — mosques were openly defying state and federal law by operating their own, rebel courts. So our leaders took steps to bring it to an end.

Image result for Mayor Beth Van Duyne

From The Political Insider:

This radical group of Muslims is not pleased with the Mayor of Irving, Texas after she put the end to America’s first “Sharia Court.” Mayor Beth Van Duyne has accused mosque leaders of creating separate laws for Muslims, which is why the city voted to stop these supposedly “voluntary” tribunals from operating.

In a very close 5-4 vote, the city of Irving ruled to back the Texas state bill banning foreign law from the state. The bill doesn’t mention Sharia or any religion, but it’s a huge defeat for Sharia supporters, as such courts are in violation of the U.S. Constitution.

All four of the “voluntary” court’s lawyers were unlicensed in the state of Texas, a third degree felony. Mayor Beth Van Duyne received several phone calls on the matter.

It seems that the Islamic Tribunal not only was unlicensed, but they failed to notify the city of their illegal court being operated in city limits. She promised to get to the bottom of it, and she did.

Sharia law treats women as second-class citizens. It also punishes non-Muslims, including Christians and Jews and calls for the death penalty for homosexuals. It obviously has no place in American society, officially or unofficially.

Yet, this group of Muslims was conducting their own Sharia courts in defiance of our society. Their website clearly stated they followed Sharia law over American law.

This has nothing to do with religious freedom and everything to do with open treason. These people were living in America, but were following laws contrary to our own. State and federal government has every right to shut them down — and shut them down they must.

Muslim groups like CAIR and others are fighting every day to force Sharia law and practice onto our society. They want to transform America into a Muslim state from the inside out. The end result is a society that protects and elevates Muslims and punishes the vast majority of everyone else.

This cannot stand. Local and state governments must pass laws that forbid such a vile agenda. More than that, our President must take action against the advancement of Sharia law.

This threat must be stopped, once and for all.

Texas Pastor Comes Up With Perfect Way To Keep Church-Goers Safe After Latest Mass Shooting

The horrifying mass shooting event at a quiet church in Texas has shaken the nation to its core.

It’s also sparked a ton of passionate response, which has run the gamut from common sense wisdom to disturbing partisan talking points.

While it may be hard to tune out the latter, it’s an imperative step that needs to be taken by the nation as a whole.

As those that make all the noise continue to get all of the attention, there’s a ton of properly-grounded folks that bring actual solutions to the table that aren’t chock full of partisan bullet points.

The Independent Journal Review passes along the details on one of those solutions, and it comes from a relatively surprising source.

But Ron Smith, pastor of Church of the King in McAllen, Texas, has a plan that Lone Star State residents — and any pro-Second Amendment American — can get behind.

He is encouraging more people to get their concealed carry licenses after 26-year-old gunman Devin Patrick Kelleyopened fire during Sunday’s worship service at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, killing 26 people and injuring 30 others.

“If the public carried guns, there would be less people killed by the bad guys,” Smith told KGBT-TV. “[I]f someone comes in shooting up the crowd, and there are people here that have a license to carry, they can save lives.”

Much to the consternation of the Left, the truths of that simple point are becoming more and more apparent.

In the case of Kelley, he would only stop his rampage when he was faced with personal harm.

That’s been true in plenty of other cases as well, and it forces everyone to come to terms with one of the unfortunate realities of the world we live in.

The preacher said he plans to meet with his church’s leadership to develop a policy that would allow firearms to be brought into the sanctuary.

“Those who have a license to carry concealed, I personally encourage it,” he explained, “but it would depend on what our elders say and the written policy that we come up with.”

At the end of the day, though, Smith said he’s not worried about a shooter storming into his church because the chances of it happening are “one in a million,” and regardless, “God’s in control.”

It’s a sad state of affairs that we even have to worry about having folks arm themselves at church.

However, the realities of the world lead to a simple question that helps to reconcile that: What other choice do we have?

As long as bad people continue to do bad things, good people need to be afforded the opportunity to protect themselves and others.

Texas Pastor Says Sanctuary Will Be Demolished After Shooting — Anonymous Donor Offers Something Different

The pastor of the small church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, where 26 people were murdered and dozens of others were wounded Sunday, wants the sanctuary torn down. But one anonymous donor is offering a different option.

Pastor Frank Pomeroy, who lost his 14-year-old daughter, Annabelle, in the shooting, believes tearing the building down and replacing it with a prayer garden is “the best way forward,” Southern Baptist Convention spokesman Roger Oldham told USA Today.

And Frank Page, president and CEO of the SBC’s executive committee, alongside SBC President Steve Gaines, both of whom met with Pomeroy this week, confirmed to the Religion News Service that the sanctuary will be demolished.

“They did say, ‘We can’t go back in there,’” Page said, referring to the congregants of First Baptist Church. “It’s going to be a reminder of the horrific violence against innocent people.”

Sheriff Joe Tackitt Jr. of Wilson County described the sanctuary as a gruesome scene, saying there is “blood everywhere” inside the building.

“You wouldn’t think they’d want to relive that,” Sutherland Springs resident Andy Wyatt, who has built many vacation Bible school sets for the church, told RNS. “They deserve something bigger and better. You want to start fresh, anew.”

And that’s exactly what one anonymous donor is suggesting, Page said. He or she is offering to pay for a brand-new sanctuary for the 100-member congregation because, as Oldham told the Associated Press, the current, bullet-riddled building is “too stark of a reminder” of the horrific attack that took place during Sunday’s worship service.

Additionally, the SBC’s North American Mission Board has offered to pay for all the funeral expenses, even though the Texas Crime Victims’ Compensation program would have footed the bill.

“We’re going to take care of our own people,” Page said.


Tucker Carlson REVEALED: Texas Shooter Wasn’t NRA Member But…

Tucker Carlson explained the liberals why the NRA is not the one responsible for the massacre in the Texas Church.

While on air on his show Tucker Carlson TonightCarlson brought up the fact that Devin Kelley was not a member of the NRA, instead of the man who stopped the massacre was not just a member of the NRA but also he was trained by them.

On the killer’s history, he commented: “Kelley had been convicted of brutally abusing his wife and infant stepson and received a bad conduct discharge from the Air Force for doing it. Even before that–before his conviction–Kelley had escaped from a mental hospital.”

After that, he shut up for good all the liberals who were saying “the NRA has too much power”by saying: “But wait, Devin Kelley wasn’t an NRA member. But the armed citizen who stopped him was.”

Then he mentioned the hero Stephen Willeford, saying that he “had been trained by the NRA in marksmanship and gun safety, and thank God for that.”

Tucker Carlson completed the show opening with the following statement:

Maybe there’s another lesson here. At every turn, the people who claim they will protect you, failed. They didn’t stop Devin Kelley, they let him buy a gun. Instead, the hero of this story is a middle-aged plumber named Stephen Willeford. He ignored basic human instinct and ran toward the sound of gunfire to save people. He was armed with an AR-15, that’s exactly the sort of rifle we’ve been told must be banned to keep us safe. Yet Willeford shot the murderer twice with that rifle and later chased him in a car, until Kelley ran off the road. Only after the rampage was over did the police arrive, and at that point, Kelley was dead.” 

Tucker Carlson just showed dump liberals that what they were saying all along was jibberish. 


Spurs Coach Calls USA World Embarrassment – Texas Marine Vet Responds With $2 Million Surprise

Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich made some very controversial statements about America during a press conference yesterday, but it wasn’t done without some serious consequences. One Texas Marine Veteran stood up and put his money where his mouth is, and the Spurs CEO is feeling the effect.

In case you missed the *exhilarating* (just kidding) press conference from Popovich yesterday here it is in a nutshell:

“Our country is an embarrassment in the world”
— Gregg Popovich

Tell me again, why do we care what a basketball coach thinks of our politics? I seem to have forgotten why anyone would care at all.

No matter, there’s one good reason why Gregg Popovich should care — money.

Gregg Popovich may run the Spurs, but the Spurs CEO owns and runs the large construction vehicle manufacturer: Holt-Cat.

Check out this story that was posted today on a pro-Donald Trump forum, it has me grinning from ear to ear =)

From user: MarineVetForTrump

Just returned over 2 million dollars worth of Holt-Cat equipment. Hope Coach Pop is worth it!

“After hearing Greg Popovich say that this country is an embarrassment, I finally decided enough was enough with the Spurs Organization. As a project manager for one of the largest excavation companies in Texas, I’m pretty sure I just ruined the Holt-Cat salesman’s day when I told him we were returning all of our rental and lease equipment until Popovich decides to apologize. I also have many contacts that are stopping operations with Holt-Cat. It’s probably not the best idea to piss off an entire industry that you rely upon to pay your players and coaches salaries.”

People need to realize — they have the right to make whatever political statement they want. That is a right given to us in the constitution and I support that 100%.

But, they don’t have the right to do so without potential backlash from the public.

The way I see it, if Gregg Popovich wants to make loud statements saying the USA is a world embarrassment, then we as citizens have the right to take our business elsewhere.

Like and SHARE if you support this Texas Marine Veteran stepping up and putting his money where his mouth is.
