Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

This one is also from the Radio 1200 WOAI site. All I gotta say is, GOD BLESSED TEXAS.

At least there is ANOTHER Texan who gets it. Check this out along with me…….

A measure filed in the Texas Legislature would prohibit any foreign legal systems, including the strict Islamic law known as ‘Sharia,’ from being implemented by any Texas court, 1200 WOAI news reports.

“We should not allow our judges to use anything other than the U.S. Constitution or state law to make decision,” said State Rep. Bill Zedler (R-Arlington).

Damn straight. You tell ‘em Bill!

“The court has referred to laws of other countries and to international as instructive for its interpretations of the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition of cruel and unusual punishments,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in the Roper case.

Methinks Justice Kennedy would do well to follow another Texan of yore, who also was a judge. Yes, I’m speaking of none other than Judge Roy Bean. Justice Kennedy, this is the United States of America. If they break the law, they are punished as our laws state, not what some wussified laws of somewhere else or what the United Nitwits general counsel declares. And for the same reason our laws should NOT be wussified because you ACTIVIST judges feel the need to legislate from the bench instead of DOING YOUR JOB. So either do what you’re SUPPOSED to do, or like leftovers gone bad you’ll be thrown out with the rest of the garbage!!

ThatIsAll™

Not sure if this is going to pass muster or not, but it certainly has Security Services personnel here on base VERY intrigued.

Found this on the Drudge site, dateline San Antonio, Texas via Radio 1200 WOAI comes this possibility:

A measure filed by State Rep. Lois Kolkhorst (R-Brenham) would allow any law enforcement agency that has custody of an illegal immigrant to take the illegal to ‘the office of a U.S. Senator or Representative’ and leave them there.

As the article puts it,

This should get their attention.

and indeed it would. But I’m sure as my left middle finger will attest, bonehead groups like Amnesty International or even the “caring” arms of the ACLU will be throwing their equivalent of a two year-old’s temper tantrum when they get their eyes on this piece of legislation.

1200 WOAI news reports the measure also allows county sheriff’s deputies or city police officers to ‘request an agent or employee of the United States Senator or United States Representative to sign a document acknowledging the release or discharge of the illegal immigrant at the senator’s or representative’s office.

Ahh but of course, here is the requisite red tape requirement….

Several thousand people are expected to descend on the state capitol today to denounce the measures, and to call on the federal government, not the states, to handle matters related to immigration.

Who wants to take bets on which “community organizing agency” is handling this crowd??? Can you say “S-E-I-U” or even “A-C-L-U”?? Yesssss, I knew you could.

What these idiots don’t understand is that the Al-Obambi clown act ain’t gonna do jack squat about securing our borders. Sure there are federal laws regarding immigration and border control, but as we all know well and good, having laws and ENFORCING those laws are two massively separate endeavors. And when it comes to border control, we here at the Command HQ are 150% for having the states to have the responsibility for border enforcement purely because the “federales” they es mui loco gringos. I’ve met and talked to many a Border Patrol agent in my days and these guys are John McLane, die hard-type, Americans (God bless you Ramos and Compeon for holding true to your duty) who are doing an extremely difficult job only made worse by the bureaucrats almost completely hand-cuffing them in the name of political correctness. On the other hand, I’m not saying we need to move into isolationist mode with our borders. But dammit, there is a very clear process for entering this country as well as becoming a citizen. If you desire citizenship enough to do it the just, proper, and LEGAL way — well I, the entire base and the rest of America welcomes you whole-heartedly. If you insist on being illegal about your ways, then you should be stopped, questioned, and summarily returned to the far side of the border with all due promptness. No green card, no stay on American soil. Period.

Dismissed™

Received this in the mail last night from Texas Right-to-Life.  Wikipedia has, sadly, confirmed.

Austin, TX — Texas Right to Life mourns the loss today of Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the former abortionist whose conversion to the pro-life cause was major news at the time and whose impact reverberates to this day. Dr. Nathanson, 84, died earlier this morning after a long battle with cancer. In the early 1970s, Dr. Nathanson was director of the largest abortion facility in the world, New York City’s Center for Reproductive and Sexual Health, at which he presided over 75,000 abortions. He personally performed about 5,000 abortions.

In his 1979 book, Aborting America, Dr. Nathanson gave an insider’s account of building what was then called the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws (NARAL), recently rebranded Naral Pro-Choice America. In that classic, Dr. Nathanson explained how he and others strategically fabricated and exaggerated statistics about the number deaths from illegal abortions while consciously vilifying the Catholic Church hierarchy.

In his autobiography entitled The Hand of God, Dr. Nathanson admitted that he was one of the individuals most responsible for dismantling the laws that safeguarded the unborn and then pushing for the Roe v. Wade decision. Once he realized his error, he dedicated the rest of his life to restoring the sanctity of preborn life and protecting women’s health. In 1984, Dr. Nathanson unveiled “The Silent Scream,” a mesmerizingly powerful video which shows sonogram images of an unborn child frantically wincing from the abortionist’s instruments. The landmark video was one of the first of its genre, confirming the sheer horror and brutality of abortion through the window to the womb.

Texas Right to Life was proud to host Dr. Nathanson at many of our events, and he unselfishly served Texas Right to Life in an advisory capacity for a number of bioethics issues. He will be missed. For many years Dr. Nathanson described himself as a Jewish atheist, but in 1996, Nathanson was baptized a Catholic by Cardinal John O’Connor.

The Realm™ mourns the passing of Dr. Nathanson.  He was one of our heroes, and he will be sorely missed.
