THIS Ruling Makes Prosecuting Voter Fraud in Texas Impossible

"I had a rather disturbing conversation with Ken Paxton the attorney general of Texas on the podcast. We were talking about election fraud and I've talked about the role of the attorney general in prosecuting election fraud. And he talked about candidly, the Texas court of criminal appeals, blocking him, Ken Paxton, blocking the attorney general from being able to prosecute such cases in effect saying that they have to be prosecuted. It has to be by the local DAs. And by the way, the local DAs are typically democratic DAs in democratic precincts and democratic cities. So the net effect of it can Paxton was saying, is that it becomes more difficult. In fact, maybe impossible to really go after voter fraud in Texas and you are listening to all this and you know a number of the people involved and well, you know, I actually, I was instrumental in two of these elected officials because they are elected officials, the court of criminal appeals are elected judges and two of them were actually running for this court for the first time back in, I think it was 2013 time frame 2014 somewhere around there. And as you know, I was the head of a Republican women's club called spirit of freedom, and I had them come to my meetings. I help promote them, all those things. And we became friends. I became friends with two of them, one of them is Kevin Erie. And the other one is David Newell, and Kevin was the only what do you call it descending? And I praised him for it. I said, thank you, thank you, thank you. David Newell, I'm very disappointed that you did this. This ruling because, you know, I'm not sure that these judges understand that we have a very, very, very bad election fraud issue in the state of

Why Ken Paxton Set Up Texas's Cold Case and Missing Persons Unit

"I'm back with attorney general of Texas, Ken Paxton. Ken, let's pivot to this new project or new thing you've set up. It's the cold case and missing persons unit. Talk about why you set it up and then let's talk about a specific case in which which I think is really quite remarkable and also quite moving. But talk about first, why did you set up this unit? Yeah, so I set this up because I had heard from people around the state. They were frustrated, particular cases I could name of cases just not being solved. People not having the resources to solve and there's really no repository for these cases. And so we had a prosecutor leaving the Travis county DA's office who was going to be allowed to stay there anymore in prosecute because that's not what they do in Travis county anymore. So I hired her and I said, look, I don't have any real resources, the legislature and provide a, I want you to start this cold case unit. You have a passion for it. You know how to do it. Use the resources that we have existing and hopefully if you're successful and we can start solving some of these cases to provide justice for people, then we can have an opportunity maybe to increase the size and give you some more resources because there's literally thousands of unsolved cases in

Texas AG Ken Paxton Reacts to Bill Barr's January 6 Testimony

"Guys, I'm really happy to welcome back to the podcast Ken Paxton, the attorney general of Texas, Ken great to see you again. You're looking good and hey, let's talk a little bit about elections. Did you happen to catch attorney general Barr yesterday? He was talking generally about voter fraud, but he specifically also talked about 2000 mules. Any response or thoughts about Barr's testimony? You know, I didn't get to hear very much of it because I was traveling, but the part I heard, he was pretty much discounting that there had been any election fraud in correct me if I'm wrong. I couldn't have disagreed more given the fact that my state was involved in so many lawsuits related to them trying to use mail in ballots like they did in other states and you'll notice in 2000 mules Texas wasn't in the show because we were able to we were able to win 12 lawsuits to stop it from happening here in

Elon Musk Threatens to Walk Away From Twitter Deal

"Kara, first of all, I got some breaking news that came to me in my ear before we joined and I want to talk about this. Elon Musk and Twitter. Now we all know that Elon Musk was scheduled to acquire Twitter, but now with the bot situation, the pretty much what happened is that there have been deceitful. They claim that it was worth more than what it really is because bots do not count for success and it does not count for involvement and engagement. So he may walk away from this. Can you talk a little bit about this and give us your thoughts on Elon Musk potentially walking away from the Twitter deal? Yeah, there are a couple of schools of thoughts here. Well, one of them thinks that, okay, maybe Elon is just trying to get himself more favorable terms for this deal. Oh, he is a businessman after all. The richest man in the world doesn't become rich by spending all his money. So there is an idea that, okay, he might be trying to negotiate for a better deal. And he actually might still be committed fully to the acquisition. He said as much a few weeks ago when all of this consternation about Twitter's what they're actually saying about their bot levels are started roiling around. This seems to be the most serious step that he's taken in order to potentially extricate himself from the acquisition. You know, lawyers sending letters around, it could be sort of gamesmanship, but it also could be very serious. And what I think is really interesting in this regard is more breaking news. The attorney general from Texas Ken Paxton, he basically said that if this is true, then we are going to take it to Twitter and he filed what's basically looking at Texas deceptive trade practices act to protect the Texan consumer. So he's taking what Elon is saying very seriously in his statement. He targeting Twitter. He basically said, they said it was about 5% in their public documents, but it might be as much as 20%. So it looks like Elon is creating a little bit of a snowball effect when it comes to Twitter's woes. So, you know, I've heard the Elon Musk take over touted as the free market solution, you know, this is why tech companies don't have to be reined in because we've got billionaires, you know, waiting to buy these platforms. Not true. Whatsoever. Look how difficult this has been. So in my estimation, it's a little naive to think that we're going to have white knights riding out of the woodwork to save us conservatives from censorship and the abuses these big tech companies are visiting upon the American people. And I don't think it's a replicable strategy. I hope Elon prevails, but it's looking really sticky at this point.

The Left's Lawless Immigration Policies

"So I want to talk about three small wins and I also want to talk about a very telling admission by Mallorca himself. So here's the first win and that is that the big uproar about all those Haitians who were descending on American shores. Obviously, these are not people at the southern border. They're showing up from Haiti. And they're showing up because the estes poverty in Haiti, but there's poverty in many parts of the world. Our immigration policies are not based upon your poor, therefore you have a right to come to America. So here were the Haitians and they were basically being seen on mosque coming across the southern border huge public relations scandal horrific images for Americans. Who are these people and even though the Biden administration tried to turn the tables? Look at these Texas Rangers rounding them up on horseback cowboy style. Nevertheless, the Biden people realized this is a very serious problem, and so they began to then deport the Haitians. Expelling thousands of them in sending them back home where they, of course, belonged. Victory number one. Here's victory number two the Biden administration as I mentioned on this podcast a couple of times was getting ready was on the verge of making gigantic financial settlements to families that said, oh, we were families who were separated at the border, even if the separations were brief, even if they were temporary. Oh, they were so traumatic. Why not use to this at all? This is emotional hardship and pain. We need to be paid $450,000 each. Not even for family. Per person. And the biodiversity was like, oh, yeah, you know, this song's reasonable. Yeah, yeah, I think giving family is taking taxpayer money and giving America Mexican families a $1 million here a $1 million there so they can basically go hit the Mexican casinos. They thought this was kind of a fair settlement. Well, once again, the public outrage over this. Made it impossible politically for them to go forward with this. And so they have ended those court negotiations over these financial compensation, victory number two. Victory number three is a court victory coming out of Texas and Texas. I have to say, has been the center of the resistance to Biden's immigration policies just a flurry of lawsuits filed by taxes really by attorney general, Ken Paxton, who's been on the show, and this is forced Biden to reimpose, even though not fully Trump's remain in Mexico policy. It's even forced Biden to continue some border wall construction, which is to say to close some gaps in the wall not to build new sections of the wall which they flatly refuse to do, but at least to patch up the wall in places where they were sort of gaping holes. Now, let me turn to the statement by orcas. We have fundamentally changed immigration enforcement in the interior for the first time ever our policy explicitly states that a non citizens unlawful presence in the United States will not by itself be a basis for the initiation of an enforcement action. Now this I think is really significant, you've got a top Biden official basically saying, it is our stated policy that we will not enforce the law. If you've got a guy in the United States illegal, you know, he's illegal. He admits he's illegal. But he doesn't have other violations. He's not a gang member. He doesn't have a criminal record. He's just an illegal. Not by itself, is not sufficient to initiate return or deportation proceedings. So what we have here is a truly lawless administration in the clinical sense of the term, there is a law system says if you don't like a law try to change it, they can change the law they're using the technique of quote enforcement to say, we're going to enforce it here, but not over there in effect what they're saying is we're going to at least in these important respects,

to leave I'm Jim Forbes The new Texas abortion laws back on the books at least for now the 5th U.S. circuit Court of Appeals granted a temporary stay Friday night after a lower court blocked the law Attorney general Ken Paxton filed the motion earlier in the day arguing the federal government has no jurisdiction over state law Facebook is back up after a major outage Friday the social media giant is blaming a faulty configuration change for that outage It was the second major outage this week to affect Facebook and Instagram Facebook offered it sincere apologies I'm Brad Siegel This is masters in business with Barry Reynolds on Bloomberg radio My extra special guest this week is chamath Paula He is the founder of social capital as well as a investor technologist philosopher really Let's talk a little bit about some of your more controversial views about spacs You've done really well with spacs So I think that you know typically IPOs of hot shot tech companies are reserved to folks like me Rich guys with lots of assets who have great relationships with the banks and you just get fed these deals And again I think it's better where there's an even playing field and everybody has a shot to find these to find these gems And the spac is really clever because you can bet on the person who can find the company You can also then if you don't like the company redeeming get all your money back So there's this downside protection You can buy it in so many different points in time in the cycle You know before you find a target once you found a target after the target has been bought and de fact I think that embedded optionality is actually really beneficial for retail individuals because they have many bites at the Apple to make a good decision And that's very different from when you know you typically buy a stock where you're now really wedded to that decision But the redemption features of this back I think are very powerful And not talked about enough So let's stick with the concept of the level playing field and not seeing deals only flow to folks like you Let's talk about angel lists and influencers and others that are have great deals I love all of that You do So it's not just so the first question is a does this create competition for deal flow with folks like you Yes and I think that that's right and good And B what is the result of that competition going to be Are we going to see venture capital eventually decentralized Yes And I think that that's incredible Really So what does that look like What does D 5 VC look like ten years hence So phase one was things like AngelList which was building the infrastructure so that smaller funds and spvs like single purpose vehicles or special purpose vehicles could get created and automated way Step two is happening right now which is an individual's are taking the leap and saying I don't need to be a part of my an infrastructure I'm going to be I'm going to hang a shingle and I'm going to do it my own And there's some incredible solo GPs Some of them are some of the most successful investors in the world And I'm really fascinated by that So now what's happening is sort of what I did back in the day you know in 2010 I called embarcadero ventures because at the time I lived on embarcadero road But to see that go from that to folks like a lot Gale or ziv you know locky groom you know Bridget loud These people are crushing They're crushing And I'm like God that's incredible So that's the second phase You're going from groups of people to individuals And then the third phase after this as I suspect that you'll do a little bit more automated so that it's less biased than that you know for example a company Like if you think about a company today Barry you're going to build it on top of stripe on top of QuickBooks on top of all of this software Why can't you just submit all of that data into some API And the next generation of venture firms will just look at all that data and say this is good Here's your check And be done with it You know no pitch meetings you know none of that stuff That just seemed so inefficient So I think that's an iteration It's inefficient but it gives people places to go excuses to maintain their authority power and wealth And who wants to give that up It's very challenging Nobody disrupts it wants to give it up I'm probably the only one that speaks about it all the time And it probably sometimes ticks off my peers But it's better It's like change Change is good Let's just see what the other side looks like So one last question about giving up power you work shoulder to shoulder with zuck at Facebook but you've been somewhat critical about what Facebook has turned into What sort of advice would you give zuck today in terms of putting Facebook back on a more positive path Well they are now operating from an enormous trust deficit I've worked with a lot of people there a lot of those folks that are in the senior ranks worked for me when I was there I really love the people I think that the best path forward is to go to the regulators and figure out how to write a legislative framework that allows them to implement some rules that are scalable You know I think the fig leaf is now pretty much gone about section two 30 You know I think that there are publisher that's pretty much clear so it's about but ultimately honestly here's the thing Barry You have an almost $1 trillion company It's getting attacked by Apple who is trying to literally eviscerate the Facebook business model and lift the value of the rest of the Internet and the inventory on the Internet You have all these decentralized projects now that are trying to reconstruct social hierarchy in a way that's more measurable and transparent You have regulators all around the world that are clamoring for something to happen and then you have these mental health issues now for a parent with a child that we all have now responsibility to deal with I think if folks were willing to let that company be one quarter of its market cap you can probably implement a bunch of rules It would just mean that you know a small number of people would be much less rich but then I think the rest of society wouldn't care that much and they would continue to use Facebook Interesting And before we get to our favorite questions we ask all our guests I gotta throw you a curveball You were pretty successful at the World Series of poker events You won You placed.

Texas Passes Law Stating No Permit Necessary to Open Carry a Gun

"Attorney general talk about the new second amendment bill. That was just passed. That has everyone freaking out of what's happening in texas. Well it's a long time coming. I've been in favor of this forever. You don't have to have a permit to for free speech. You don't have a permit to go exercise your faith. I don't think you should have to have a permit to carry under the second amendment so in texas we now have that we have constitutional carey which allows people to carry concealed or out in the open without going through the government to get permission. Well that's terrific and so are there any. Are there any possible legal challenges to this. I'm sure some groups are going to try. Robert francis o'rourke who calls himself beta was making all sorts of videos about this and saying it's the worst thing ever. But i don't think that's gonna hold up in court. No i mean i have. No doubt will get sued. We'll end up defending that law and will you know that's one of those cases that could could all the way the supreme court who knows either way i think we're on si- obviously solid legal footing with the constitution. It's kind of the basic of our of our of our country. So i feel i'm encouraged. It took a long time to get this through era. I was enlisted for twelve years. We were never able to get it through and finally this session happens. I'm really grateful. So let's talk more. Broadly now just about texas is texas at risk of going. Blue harris county seems to be a blue county now vallis counties whatever it is. What are you seeing on the ground. And how can people help. Were absolutely a risk of going blew. It would have happened this time. Had we not fought these lawsuits. I it's all about whether we can protect the integrity of our elections and that is a constant battle. And that's why this election bill was was passed. And we've got to be vigilant. I think there's another bill. They're considering on on on looking at. Its potential type. Audits like you guys are doing here. I think we've got to do that to make sure that our elections are fair and that people can trust them because once you lose if we lose control in texas. I'm not sure that we'd ever get it back because if they open up mail in ballot let elections. We're gonna end up a lot more fraud and we may never be able to take it back and so it's pretty important that we secure elections now. Because you know you go to california. There's a lot of valen ballots. And i don't know if we'll ever know if there's a fair election california oregon or washington right.

Google Is Its Own Government, Cuts Texas Attorney General's Budget

"Attorney general paxton. How many people do you have working for you. And the attorney general's office in texas so it's a total of about forty two hundred four thousand two hundred and you're saying that google has a lot of resources understand. How big these companies are. You have the understand the point. I'm making i mean you're the third largest state right or the second we're second we're actually selling. The census data second largest state in the country attorney. General's office is saying. Hey look we're going to try our best but like we're no google. Yes to show the size right amazing the money that they have a we have budgets and my entire budget for a two year period one point three billion which sounds like a lot of money six hundred and something million but a year which is a lot of money and we do a lot of great things with that money however if you think about google making you know hundred and thirty five billion a year and profits they could hire every attorney in texas they wanted to and every lobbyist in texas and i. We have to go up against that. There's no limit to what they can do. The experts they can i r- and and and what they can do to try to. You know go into a legislative session. Like i just went through where they try to lobby tab. My budget cut by twenty five percent. So really it's a force. They are a force. That's just one company that makes sense. Yes so google being its own government. Basically within our own country never should have been allowed to be this big or powerful comes in and says oh we don't like the attorney general's office in texas because their lawsuit is so brilliantly written. Let's go cut their budget. Because we have offices in austin and somehow we can justify and that's what they're willing to do absolutely. I think it's pretty smart. I mean if they get my budget by twenty five percent which was the strategy That makes it very difficult for me to carry. I actually asked also for money for the google case. I asked for forty three million dollars. Go fight go well they obviously. We're trying to fight that as well that imagine. I don't get the money to to fight him. But also lose the rest of my you know a high percentage of my budget and have to lay off a bunch of lawyers instead of ramping up to go fight them. That's nearly what happened.

Texas Legislature Expanding Voting Laws to Protect Election Integrity, Prevent Fraud

"Want to get too many other topics here But let's get into election integrity. You see the side. They're not just upset about the texas pro-life law from they're also upset about the law that they say it's the hardest state in the country to vote in and tell us what's really going on in the fight for election integrity in the great attacks so we almost ended up in the same situation is georgia and arizona and some of these other states where we would be counting votes What we did differently in texas as we defended twelve lawsuits that were aimed in pretty liberal counties. Travis which is austin houston which is a bare kennywood san antonio and in those counties. We were sued over our laws related to mail in ballots and signature verification. We were fortunate. We had twelve of those. It was a major onslaught. We won every single one of those lawsuits so instead of counting votes on election day we had already protected our elections. Now what we're doing is we're actually expanding voting hours. And we're limiting some of the little tricks that were that were attempted in harris county and some other places to go beyond the legislature authorized as far as it relates voting. And so we've tried to tighten up male unbalanced by requiring photo. Id which i think is very significant because my office prosecutes Voter fraud. it's the only thing we prosecute. We have more voter fraud cases going now than we ever have. We have were five hundred cases in court another almost four hundred cases that were investigating and more than a majority of those relate to mail in ballot fraud so with legislature was trying to do was expand hours. Give more opportunity to vote. We already have two weeks early voting in texas so it's pretty significant but at the same time we realized we still have some voter fraud issues especially as it relates to mail in ballots. So i want to zero in on the said. There's five hundred cases that you've brought to to indictment. Is that right around for the we have. We have five hundred over five counts. That were prosecuting right now. We we have not brought him into indictment because covert actually shut the course down in texas for quite a while. We're and we're now we're wait. We're waiting line behind violent offenders to get those cases in but we have more cases going right now related to voter fraud than i think we've had in the entire history of texas if you add up the number that we're investigating plus the number that we're prosecuting. I think it's a larger number. All the cases ever prosecuted in

A temporary restraining order from Travis County Judge Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Governor Greg Abbott had wanted the state Supreme Court to overrule that judge. Here's what all that means. Some school districts in Texas have been putting their own mask mandates in place in opposition to Governor Greg Abbott's ban on them. The court has now cleared the way for those districts to enact their own mask rules. Meanwhile, although Covid 19 vaccinations have increased in recent weeks, the delta variant continues to spread rapidly among the unvaccinated, including Children. According to the Texas Tribune.

"Attorney general. Ken paxton is our guest. General paxton the left often says that while we complain about fraud in the electoral process. We don't seem to be able to prove that it's actually happening but your office does do that. How big a problem is this. And how many cases can you okay. It's huge we only have three full-time prosecutors. I started we had one. We have more cases in the pipeline. We have hundreds of cases in the pipeline right now that we were not able to take the core because kobe tobin. Slow this down the court shut down for almost a year. And now we're not a priority because they're taking the violent offender cases. I and so we're still waiting. But we've got hundreds of cases we've got more cases than we've ever had The numbers are staggering. So we definitely have chases where we think. Voter fraud has been committed. And that's what limited resources and limited time. We still have more cases than we can handle. So if i had more resources. I'm convinced we'd be bringing more voter fraud cases and we already have when you see these cases. What is the hallmark. What is what is the tell that this fraud is it. The same signature on a bunch of these is it a witness comes forward and what what's the basis for these cases. How can you tell well both of those. In every case that's that's a challenging about these cases. They're all very fact specific. We can't just people report fraud to me and they want me to just follow lawsuit. Take somebody court and try to put him in prison. We actually have to go out and investigate. I send investigators out. They spend some time you know more than a year the investigation. Sometimes we're working in county shockingly. That won't help us and so we have to. We have to do a lot of it on around these cases a real work and they're all very fact specific and they their people do it in different ways. You know the easiest case we had was veritas. Brought us this video. This woman admitting on tape you probably thought she had been involved in seven thousand different fraudulent votes in that one election cycle. We don't use yet it. That easy one was as easy as it gets general paxton. We're losing you again. General paxton are you there. We lose alana just on it. Okay there we are. We lost you for a minute there. Sorry about that. I'm driving from houston. That's all right. I want to ask you. Because i want give you a chance to respond. George bush jabs son has been saying some pretty nasty things about you and wants to take your job. Does that surprise you. How do you respond you know. No i mean. I don't i think he's trying to escape the general land office. You know we all know the slogan. Remember the alamo has something he didn't remember and I think he's running from that alamo project. He's running from the fact that he didn't do his job Doling out disaster funds from the hurricane houston initially got almost nothing which is shocking And i don't understand that. I wish he would explain his own job before he starts criticizing me. But i'm happy to talk about my record. In in fighting the biden administration the obama administration big tech going after backpage dot com on human trafficking and fighting for election integrity both nationally with our lawsuits against those four states or locally where we're pursuing voter fraud every day. So i'd rather focus on what i've done and let him if he if he has anything to talk about. Hopefully he can talk about what he's done. Which so far. I haven't seen much up. What are you working on right now. What are the biggest areas of focus for the texas attorney general. The biggest areas are related to the biden administration and dealing with immigration And we sued them over the keystone pipeline. Were on constant. And they've sued us over our medicaid program So we so much of what we're doing right now is dealing with the federal government overreach. And they're they're ignoring of federal law and the constitution and trying to abuse texans That's a huge part of what we're doing. We've got that. We got the largest anti trust case in the history literally the country Against google and we have likely other lawsuits against companies coming and then we've continued focus on human trafficking and then election integrity and trot. So those are kind of the big areas. I'm focused on. Because i think those are the ones that matter to texans and with our limited budget are limited resources. I want to focus on things that really matter to the state and some of these things matter to the entire country. You said something that you're not the first one to say this has been talked about a lot. You said that. George bush you say quote. He's got this mentality that he's going to be president someday. He's gotta get started. I remember when he was first announcing that he was going to run the announcement was he was going to run for something he just had to decide what it was going to be. And that did not sit well with me. It's as if he is entitled because his last name is bush and he's hispanic. It's as if he's entitled to this office. And in the stair steps and i find that a lot of the rich republicans that the sort of country club class that that you know pine for for his his grandfather they go along with. This is that he looks depart. That he's hispanic. We gotta have hispanics because his mother happen be hispanic and it just something to me very off pudding about everything related to this. It's everything we don't stand for. I feel exactly the same way. I don't feel like he has the same values that i do. The most texans at least most republicans care about. And i feel like he you know. He was for the longest time. He was running for. Lieutenant governor against dan patrick. He talked about running for governor among some people he's it just seemed like he was just trying to pick the place that you know allowed him to take the next step to move up the ladder and you know the reality is. He just got his license back in october. hasn't practice. I think for almost ten years and only briefly practice before then so this is a real legal job. I mean this is probably the largest loss. law firm the the country or in the state and we have forty two employees of lawyers. And we deal with real issues. And if you don't know much about the law you're like a rookie on the law. Then you're going to have trouble doing this job and if you can't manage the land office you certainly shouldn't step up and try to run this one. It's going to be interesting to watch because many of our listeners closely watched what happened with the alamo. And i'll tell you what to run him out on a rail tar and feather that man hamming really at how he handled that. And i don't think i don't think the folks that have have made a passionate pursuit of preserving the alamo are going to sit idly by while he seeks a higher office. I think that's going to be an interesting thing to observe. Well and he's not gonna want to answer questions about that because there's so much Answered questions. I mean more important monuments that we have at texas in the alamo and it appears like he's trying to give it away to other people moving away from the history to something sure about in texas because he came from florida he didn't really know the history. But i think texans and even people that have new tier care about the alamo and then it'd be preserved in a way that that represents what actually happened there. Not some globalist Rendition of of history. That doesn't really tell the real story of what happened. At the alamo. Maybe put an exclamation mark after his name to get people more excited.

"Impacts and recently sued to overturn election results in four swing states. The Supreme Court refused to hear it. The spectacle shined a national spotlight on Ken Paxton. But civil rights groups in Texas have been battling him. For years After the court legalized same sex marriage, Paxton issued guidance to county clerks and said, If it violates your religious beliefs, you can refuse to issue a marriage license to the same sex couple. Now you might be subject to a lawsuit. If you do that. That's Shelly scheme, senior attorney at Lambda Legal and LGBT Civil Rights Group. County clerks by and large followed the ruling of the Supreme Court. But this was an early indication of how Paxson would use religion as the state's top lawyer. He's putting that first, as opposed to complying with what the losses and that's his job is to comply with what the law says. Give advice on that, and then also to enforce it. The A. C L U of Texas has confronted the state A G many times. Andre Segura is legal director. This for me started in 2015 early 2016 when he tried to block refugees from settling in Texas cigarette has also fought Paxton over voting rights. Paxton has lost its pending to end the DACA program and throw out the entire affordable care act. His legal efforts could potentially have a broad effect on national policy. Paul No. Let is a professor of political science at Marquette University and studies State attorneys general, he says the job has evolved over the past 20 years. Ah, lot of Egypt's fall into this category that They're much more interested in national politics than they were in the past. They have this national influence in a way that they didn't even a couple decades ago, and Paxton I think is kind of a shining example. Other examples include liberal ages in California and New York, Big states that have often sued the Trump Administration. Republican Tom Rath is the former attorney general for New Hampshire, where unlike Texas, the Eiji is appointed by the governor, He says suing the federal government can be part of the job. Look at times, there could be a federal law or regulation that said, odds with the needs of the state that runs contrary to how the state operates, and I think that's an appropriate circumstance in which the attorney general may say this runs contrary to our interests. Wrath did not support. However, Paxton's lawsuit attempting to overturn election results in four states, he called the time and money spent on it a waste. The suit brought renewed attention to Pakistan and his own legal troubles. He's been understate indictment for securities fraud for five years. Separately, several of his former high ranking staffers are accusing him of abusing his office. The FBI is reportedly investigating and Paxson denies wrongdoing. The state attorney general's office didn't return email seeking an interview, but in November of Texas, spoke to Austin TV station K x A N Pretend some amazing things. And so I would just say the proof is in the pudding. Look at the result. From what we've accomplished.

"You see, BF Weather channel forecast Partly cloudy with dry again to day and 46 for the high is 30 in Annapolis. 28 in Crofton and you are up today. Here in the morning, Dr Kayson, Elliot 6 24. We're talking about the Supreme Court yesterday was interesting was reading the Democrat. They're They're attorney's argument against the Mike Kelly Sean Parnell case, which was denied it emergency injunctive relief Now the court did not review a request. Specifically to take up the case. It's just still pending. And it might be because the case that they got yesterday from Texas is much bigger. More than just a second, but basically the brilliant minds of the radical left. Here's what they're claiming. That no one has ever stopped us before. So don't be the first. Now that that was the legal argument to the Supreme Court Now is Look, this has never been done before. So don't be the first. To stop this election fraud. It'll of it'll It'll be on you. Then we have the Texas lawsuit the attorney general Ken Paxton, on others leading the charge here. On. He talked about why he felt compelled to sue four battleground states. They are Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin because he's arguing they changed their election laws in violation of their state constitution, which then is a violation of the federal constitution. And here's what he said about that. It's really important to my state that my voters be representative. And if other states don't follow the constitution. If their state legislature isn't responsible for overseeing their elections, and we have other people who are not under the constitution under the Constitution. Supposed to be doing this. It effects my state. Basically, Bruce, this is a large equal protection argument. Yeah, In essence, not just every vote counts, but it's every state counts in the circumstances. Yeah, And he says the changes that they made are inconsistent with relevant state laws were made by non legislative entities without any consent by the state legislatures. The act of these officials those directly violated the Constitution and joining Ken Paxton. Attorneys general from Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina. And South Dakota all announced and and Louisiana as well. All announced they were they were, you know, again, filing briefs in in favor of the It's a very interesting kind of concept or what you're arguing essence is That we ran an honest election and we want our voters to be fairly represented. If somebody else ran an election, where there was either massive fraud or Things simply went south autumn. They should be responsible for that particular misbehavior, and they should actually go back and do a do over in. In effect, your state screwed up. The election at the federal level. So if if you want to screw up your own election in your own state s so be it. But your actions which are unlawful and unconstitutional, have then made the election process is in these other states less secure. Less meaningful and obviously not know due process here since they didn't follow the Constitution, So it is a fascinating argument. It is a long shot well as some are categorizing it as such. Others were saying you just never know, because now that you have nine states Before the Supreme Court, and that's what the Supreme Court lights that's called original jurisdiction. You know, when you have a state that is complaining about water rights, like, say, California versus Let's say Arizona. All right, Andre. They're battling over water rights. There's an original jurisdiction argument as to you know who whose original jurisdiction is being violated, or Concerned here, and so now, whether that will apply in this case. I'm not sure that's up for the legal beagles. But I do find it interesting. We found it a case called Foster versus Love. From 1997. It is fascinating. We're gonna share with you here in just a moment because that case was decided by the Supreme Court. Nine zip. It has to do with the continuity of the Constitution says Election Day. And so anything that stretches beyond Election Day may be unconstitutional, according to the Supreme Court case. Well, that is also a fascinating argument. I wonder if that's gonna factor in here in the time, boy. If it does, you're gonna have all kinds of changes between now and next time around. You're all kinds of changes. It is 6 29. And what about about good friend Vinnie Studio and Vinny and his Remax community team first off the one of the top real Tory's in the state of Maryland.

"Entity and Tonio twice indicted, Ken Paxton speaks today. If you think this is wise use of our attorney general's office to go after the city of San Antonio over this. It's just it's wrongheaded it wrong headed. It's ridiculous. It's just ridiculous. And somebody out there because obviously somebody somewhere likes this Jeff, the members of the Texas legislature who supported this like this. This is the red meat for the repeal. Who already the right ways that person? Well, it's the primary voters in the Republican party prime prime they want the government to go after private business like this. They want. Remedy is available to chick every remedy is at chick fillet disposal. This is a good topic for oak Ken Paxton to get reelected on Jeff. This is a wonderful. This is a red meat man. All right. Texas hit Ken Paxton his father lawsuit today to get access to public records as part of his office's investigation into San Antonio's ban of a Chick-fil-A restaurant from the airport, the petition filed and Travis cata district court against the city of San Antonio seeks to force the city to hand over documents quote, chick fil, A's leadership is well known for their personal belief in the Christian, faith and traditional understanding of marriage paxton's, office wrote the attorney general's office. According to say dot com announced the investigation, claiming the city's decision to exclude Chick-fil-A from the airport was quote inconsistent. With the constitution and Texas law Chick-fil-A has lawyers indicted man have they said one thing the corporation itself. Have they said one thing, the my knowledge if they want to go, and you're right if they want to go to the they can do it rather than on powerful jaw attorneys to every remedy at their disposal without the government? Chick-fil-a bill. I don't even know what it really means. I don't think anybody else does. And I don't know that anybody even cares. The end of the session, it was passed this is about religious liberty is anyone's religious liberty really denied. And if so, do you not have recourse, or do you need the government involved? That's the question at that simple. The fact that this kind of rhetoric from the indicted, one by the way, works on many of you is pathetic. Maybe Chick-fil-A was wronged, maybe not. They haven't said a word why does he have to get involved. And why do you like that? But it's such a good issue. Jeff, it's a great non-issue a great non issue or for Ken Paxton. This is a top stuff that will get you really Dopp man. It's been going on a month of stupid rhetoric. The answer all along needed to be, wow. I'm sure of chick fil A's been violated. They can handle this done end of story. But, nope. Almost every day for the past four weeks. They work like crazy, if the capital, the indicted, one has to keep this in the news because obviously some of you think this gigantic government intrusion is necessary. And that's what this is. That's what it is. It's a government intrusion in the name of winning your vote over this. This is it. This is what you're worried about Chick-fil-A doesn't seem to be that worried. If so they would have already handled it. They probably like many other giant industries or businesses go through lawsuits all the time. Course they do. Yeah. I got it. They can handle this, but remember body. This is our tax payer money. Yeah. This year. These are our great lawyers. They get great lawyers impacts office. This is their time this is their time fighting this. What is it? What is what is their in game? On this. The end game is to get reelected a lot what and we know that then game is never righteous. It's never about the law. The end game is to get reelected. What's shocking is that somehow this is going to move some voter? You can't think through this enough to say, Chick-fil-A, go get him or chick ride on or. Chick-fil-a whatever you can't think through it. Yeah. Yeah. Is him of all people? The city of San Antonio issue or a chick fillet issue. Right. If they so desperately want to go in that market. You go you go appeal, you file suit for discrimination, or whatever whenever and you move on. But it's no no business of Ken Paxton in the state of Texas, every day. This isn't just one day this is come up. And somebody said, hey, look I've got to step in. This is every day, which should tell you everything about what this is about. This is out. I'm going to predict this goes nowhere fast because if it does it is itchy Arctic even for a guy who's often prisoner of the audience. Tariffs upwards of twenty five percent on Mexico is a train wreck it will ever at every level every measurement, and that screaming sound, you will hear will be the senators from the state of Texas and their hair will catch on fire. I'm going to assume this is the typical Donald Trump, I'll throw this out there. Let's see what happens kind of strategy because I can't believe for a second any right thinking, person, there's arguments to be made multiple arguments to be made by smart people about tariffs in dealing with the Chinese. There is no argument none. That says you should implement incrementally. Increasing tariffs on Mexico is a disaster already, John Cornyn has come out against this. Governor abbot has come out against this. They both Tipper and they don't want. To get on the tweets because they say we believe in the president of trying to protect the border, but we do not agree with these imports. I'm going to assume maybe portable mistake, I'm gonna soom this again. Just hot air sooner or later, your gonna run out of leverage ability. If you just though these things out there and cry wolf. So I just can't believe for a second that, that he would follow through. Heal dot com. Trump's proposed tariffs some Mexican imports could constitute the biggest tax hike on American consumers in three decades. These are taxes this one hits you right away this. There's no upside to this. If you an plumet them if it's just hot air and it works. Whatever will Nick malaria, Noviny says definitely the five percents gonna go in on June tenth. So that's what he said yesterday on the morning talk shows that take effect you and ten and increases until it reaches twenty five percent. That is that is an economic disaster. Hey, that's a there's no, no way you can massage that one around two-thirds of US imports from Mexico, which total three hundred seventy one point nine billion last year. We're related party trade meaning companies bringing parts and products as part of their supply chain, according to data compiled by Deutsche Bank, the US imported one hundred twenty four billion in auto products, from Mexico in two thousand eighteen alone. That includes new and us passenger vehicles. Medium heavy and other trucks auto parts, blah, blah, blah. The parts get this crossed the border as many as eight or nine times before becoming finished products, potentially opening up auto companies look out man. There's the midwest look out. There's no way anyone near him says, do this no way. I don't I don't believe no one believe anybody. He's not that crazy. He may be crazy, but he's not he's not I'm going to lose the midwest crazy. And that's what this would do you go to twenty five percent by Tober? You've just lost the midwest done done. There are no handouts, taxpayer hand. Asked that would make this one go away. This would be, frankly, this is political suicide if you went through with it. I'll trust. There's nobody crazy enough to do this. Okay. So the automakers would just absolutely get a bloody nose more than four hundred fifty two million worth of autoparts, or traded eating either direction across the US and Mexico border. Remember going back and forth, eight or nine times. How are you going to manage that? You're gonna get taxed every time. You will every time you go over. Yeah. David Kotok chief investment officer at Cumberland advisors. This is a colossal. Blunder. He said the advice Peter Navarro one of Trump's top trade advisors who favours liberal use of tariffs, quote, is wrong headed in going to sink that president it was, it was evident Friday when the stock market was down over three or fifty points, and that talking about a Friday afternoon when you're going about, hey, this is just not for people who do a lot of business on the board of this for long term for cars for trucks for groceries for your 4._0._1._K. Your 4._0._1._K was was hitting in a big way last Friday. Fourteen bathe in crude oil from Mexico last year. Oil prices suffered their worst month a decline in six months as the trade disputes, threatened global growth, blah, blah, blah. A third of sugar imported into the US comes from Mexico and a cost increase Goodson price shock through the food and beverage supply chains, the meat industry, imported more than eight hundred forty million worth of live animals. So here is the prediction without this economy grew at three point one percent. Annual pace in the first quarter but forecast made before the Mexico announcement show predicted growth of two percent or less, they would likely go lower. If Trump follows through, and Mexico response, they would. You know what he's, I don't know, who is answering to here because I don't know what more Mexico. Realistically can do. I think you're a you're barking and this is wasted oxygen this. There are trade partner to this is not the Chinese who were screwing us with high-tech stuff. These are the this is this is commerce between Texas and Mexico and Mexico in the country. I don't know what else they can do other maybe at their southern border. And I read where they have. It's very when they catch him at their southern border Mexico side of the border. They send them back immediately. Whatever good you might make in getting Mexico to be better at handling immigration is going to be completely wiped out by these tariffs. You are. I mean if look if, if the farm bailouts your taxpayer money handed to the farmers was to pacify them to keep their vote, you're not going to be able to pacify the automakers. This one is political disaster. If assume there's no way bre guy that knows his only chance to get reelected, get elected then reelected those, those auto states. Yeah, there's no way. He's political savvy enough to bail out the farmers just to keep their fort, there's no way he'd right off the automakers. No, no. I'm going to assume this is just crazy talk attempted Dhamma tough guy. Blah, blah, blah. There's just no way. Economically or politically, this would make any sense whatsoever. And. If you really want to run the risk, not only of losing the midwest, losing the state of Texas..
