Governor Abbott Was Right: Obama Intends To Invade Texas

We know that Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott put the Texas State Guard on alert earlier this month to thwart the possible invasion of his state by President Obama’s military might. Well, it appears Abbott was right about the invasion.

With Their Stupidity on Full Display, Fox ‘News’ Provides Best-Ever Laugh-of-the-Day

Have you ever changed a tire on a car? If not, then you may miss the humor here. But if you have, you’re going to laugh your arse off at the total stupidity displayed by Fox Fraudcasing in the video below, which aired yesterday.

What Fox & Friends was attempting to do was prove how “manly” it is to change a tire on a car. Brian Kilmeade, with the (useless) help of former (and failed) U.S. Senator Scott Brown, was to change the tire while Fox’s white, (died) blond-haired, brown-eyed Elisabeth Hasselbeck provided the eye candy.

Besides the fact that neither Kilmeade nor Brown knew what the hell they were doing, special attention must be paid to Kilmeade removing the lug nuts.

Anyone who’s ever changed a tire knows that if lug nuts were properly torqued when installed they’re nearly impossible to loosen, especially with a single-point lug wrench such as Kilmeade was using. But notice how ungodly easy Kilmeade removes the lug nuts. No pressure at all was required. The lug nuts were so lose you could have nearly removed them by hand if you could get your fingers on them. This means, of course, that some real man had to loosen them before the camera started rolling.

To top it off, Kilmeade forgot to remove one of the lug nuts. The final act of stupidity is they failed miserably in changing the tire.

Maybe – just maybe – this exceptionally display of stupidity is the reason Fox News is always harping on American men losing their manhood: They’re assuming all men are as stupid as they are.

Watch and laugh.

Another Texas-First Whacko: ‘Sanction My Militia Group’

Golden Triangle MilitiaCorrection below.

Leave up to the mentally unstable of Texas to come up with a mentally unstable idea. And, as ‘luck’ would have it, it happened right here in my home county of Orange, Texas.

David W. Smith is the mental case in question. He has requested that the county of Orange officially recognize his militia group as the county reserve militia. The commissioners were getting ready to vote on the matter when one “expressed reservations about the group’s vetting process and requested more information”. The vote was tabled for the time being.

Now here’s the troublesome part of Smith’s proposal. He now claims he’s just an ordinary citizen concerned about the safety and security of his county. He declares he’s not a white supremacist, conspiracy theorist and is not a member of or believes in the KKK. He’s attempted to justify the need of his group in several interviews, including some national services. But he’s failing miserable. He almost always slips up and reveals his true intent almost every time.

In an interview with the local county news he cites “the influx of immigrants entering the country who want to change the government, such as establishing Islamic Sharia Law”, yet there is not a single case of a Muslim attempting to change any of our laws. Smith claims groups like his is “the last line of defense against tyranny” which suggest the U.S. government is no longer recognized by him and his group as a legitimate government.

When Smith was interviewed by The Orange Leader, the local city newspaper quoted him as saying “After witnessing a blatant disregard of our Constitution in the Senate and our Government I found the overwhelming desire to take a stand and offer to represent the citizens of Texas. …What I find is, our current Government is in a stark contrast to what our Founding Fathers established for this Nation. When our government ignores the Law of the Land we have a problem.”

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) takes issue with Smith’s claim of simply being a concerned citizen:

“[Smith] has expressed sup­port for views that are far from the main­stream. Through his Face­book pro­file, he is linked to a wide vari­ety of extrem­ist groups and fig­ures, from anti-government con­spir­acy the­o­rist Alex Jones (who pop­u­lar­ized the recent notion that the fed­eral gov­ern­ment was plan­ning to invade Texas) to var­i­ous Three Per­center groups (anti-government extrem­ists who view them­selves fight­ing against the fed­eral gov­ern­ment as Amer­i­can colonists fought against the British). Smith ran for U.S. sen­ate in 2014 on a plat­form of oppos­ing ‘this uncon­sti­tu­tional de facto government’.”

The ADL also says Smith claims “that county com­mis­sion­ers could be jailed if they refused to autho­rize a militia”.

Brint CarltonWhat’s scary about Smith’s chances of getting the county to officially recognize him and his militia is that a newly-elected county judge is supporting the idea. Judge Brint Carlton, who has voting power on the issue, says he supports Smith and calls his idea a “good thing”.

Smith ran for the U.S. Senate in 2014, listing himself as being affiliated with the tea party. The tea party community has him listed on their website. That in itself defines who and what Smith is. But in his interview with the local newspaper, he claimed he was running as an Independent, which says he’s not altogether honest. However, Smith needed 49,799 signatures from county state voters to get on the ballot and evidently was unable to garner up that many signatures as his name never appeared on any ballot.

Where does Texas get these whacko’s?

Correction: About Smith’s run for U.S. Senate, I inadvertently stated he couldn’t get enough signatures from county voters to get on the ballot. It should have read “State” voters.
