This weekend, there were so many momentous things to talk about. Firstly, the endorsements of our favorite defendant by a couple of heavyweights. America was on the edge of it's collective seat to see which way Senator Tim Scott, who really, honestly, no-kiddin' has a girlfriend, was going to lean in the wake of his own campaign. Hampered only by a lack of a coherent message and suffering from that charisma bypass of several years ago, Scott threw in the towel and has now endorsed, hold onto your hat, your favorite indicted former Chief Executive.
And he actually looked into a camera and in front of God and everyone, said that Donald Trump will unite the country. Even New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, whose father was Ronald Reagan's cabana boy, couldn't keep from laughing, saying even Trump wouldn't believe that. I only hope his Willie Best impersonation earns him a VP nod, or something so he isn't haunted by his family for groveling before the most unworthy icon since Father Coughlin.
And then, "Little Marco" weighed in and ignoring his governor, Short Trump, endorsed the real thing. I only bring up Marco Rubio's endorsement because if I didn't, you'd forget it as quickly as I'm trying to forget that the Texans loss Saturday. Like Ted Cruz (R-Cancun), Rubio has the uncanny political ability to ignore the most belittling, smarmy insults and still kiss the insulter's ring, if he can reach it with those pudgy fingers.
And of course, now that Ron DeSantis has dropped out and can now wear normal cowboy boots, you can expect the same fealty to Prince Donald of Orange.
And speaking of the Texans, for a moment, I am for the first time in a long time, maybe ever, a hopeful Houston fan in both the baseball and football seasons. We had a few good Oiler seasons, and a few good ones for the Astros, but rarely in the same year. It's an unusual feeling, so spot me a little time to get used to it.
Fortunately, having a winning football team has allowed me a little respite from thinking about the rest of my state, and primarily, its leadership. Elsewhere in the Texas Outlaw Writers website, you'll find a terrific one-man discussion of the border by our colleague Jim Moore. I recommend it. I'll just say that for a long time I considered Greg Abbott, our dreary-savant governor to just be a cookie-cutter politician of the conservative persuasion, whose speeches were strangely disengaged from any emotion, halting and lacking in anything one could term captivating.
But being conservative today, at least if you aren't Mitt Romney, seems to be a different thing. And I'm guessing that in an effort to keep up with the loathsome Dan Patrick, Abbott has taken on the worst aspects of the party of Marjorie Taylor Greene and looked for ever more clever ways to deal with illegal migrants. That includes concertina wire and soldiers on the border to, under orders, push people back into the river. Even to the point of denying the actual Border Patrol access to an area where they hoped to rescue a woman and two children who were drowning.
When asked about the incident, the Abbott-DPS response was, "They were already dead anyway." If that answer is good enough for you, then I'm sorry, we can't be friends. That is our own "Operation Lone Star" being carried out in our name, or rather for political gain. Check out Jim's piece. There is so much more to this. Add this to the number of states that have turned down a summer stipend for children of poor families for food when there are no school lunches.
I wonder of the true measure of political viability today is how cruel you can be.
But, I want to talk about the kind of political emails I get as this election year grinds on to its inevitable unsatisfactory conclusion. And I read them so you don't have to. I'm not sure why I get more conservative mail as I visit a lot of liberal sites, too, but maybe they haven't got their propaganda act together as well.
In late February, Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley is expected...
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) is scheduled to deliver a speech...
Ford Motor company announced on Friday that it is reducing...
So, let me explain. Haley's bad news is a poll that shows Trump ahead. Matt Gaetz, a bellwether for most Americans deciding on a candidate, is going to vote for Trump. And these folks hate electric cars, because, you know, Biden, and were tickled that they were having trouble in the latest super cold weather.
Now, I have no idea what has neuropathy experts baffled, but I am intrigued. And, really? Bedlam?
This screed is by David Horowitz, a former member, he says, of the antiwar left in the 60's, and is now a darling of the right. But Barack Obama? A communist? Because of the Affordable Care Act? But this is an example of the lavish and frankly, baroque rhetoric flying around these days. Words that no one can even define are taken as gospel by the folks in the booboisie. When Trump calls someone a communist and a fascist, it gives one pause. You want to pass out dictionaries at rallies. And if I'm getting these emails, a lot of folks are.

Bullying? See the explanation above. And there's Larry Clayman, an attorney who chases, instead of ambulances, Democrats. Oh, and chases dollars as well.
Free the January 6 Protestors!
Right now, un-American politicians and corrupt members of the Department of Justice are keeping hundreds of our fellow Americans in jail without due process…they’re abused and beaten…they’re blocked from seeing their wives and children…and kept from seeing their lawyers!
34 peaceful protesters have BEGGED to get transferred to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba just to end the torture occurring in the Washington, D.C. jail.
But there’s something you can do about it …you can donate immediately to Freedom Watch to GET JUSTICE FOR THESE PERSECUTED PATRIOTS with your crucial gift of:
I would like to cover the processing fee of $1.35 so 100% of my donation goes to Freedom Watch
And don't forget the "Daily Caller" founded by Tucker Carlson...
Then there are the campaigns...
This was Friday. He's out as of Sunday. Then there's this guy, Kash Patel, who served in the Trump administration for a brief period, roughly one Scaramucci's worth-
The media lied about January 6th.
The Deep State lied about January 6th.
FBI Director Wray lied about January 6th.
The entire January 6 commission withheld information from the public, showing an entirely different story from the lies they told.
Now, it’s time to hold them accountable. Here’s how:
STEP ONE - The Kash Foundation will continue our work with whistleblowers in the Deep State to expose corruption and bias as we head into 2024. We cannot let the Deep State interfere with our elections.
STEP TWO - The Kash Foundation will continue to financially support some of the families of January 6th prisoners and those being unfairly prosecuted by the Deep State.
So far, we have awarded grants to over 15 individuals with January 6th cases.
Here’s how you can help:
Can you send an urgent donation of $35, $50, $100, $250, or even $1,000 to the Kash Foundation to support our mission to defeat the Deep State? Click here to donate >>
And so on, and so on. And you'll notice, one common denominator is Kash, I'm sorry, cash. I also heard from Don Jr. this year...
And, of course, it ends with a plea for money. And then there's the headline for the indictment of Alec Baldwin over the fatal movie shooting incident...

And Now He's Looking at Hard Time... [READ MORE]
Well, I guess, he is and might be. But I'm not sure what the two had to do with each other. And finally, our friends at Hillsdale College, dedicated to bringing America back to, oh, 1912 or somewhere near there.
Dear Fellow American,
A few years ago, New York magazine posed the question: “When Did Everyone Become a Socialist?”
This is, of course, an exaggeration. But it makes clear that the far-Left in America aims to bring about a “Great Reset” of our economy and our way of life.
In a recent issue of Imprimis—Hillsdale College’s digest of liberty—author Michael Rectenwald described the economic goal of the Great Reset as “‘capitalism with Chinese characteristics’—a two-tiered economy, with profitable monopolies and the state on top and socialism for the majority below.”
Today, as a supporter of liberty, you can help Hillsdale College understand the extent of support for—and opposition to—socialism.
Your input will help us develop the most effective strategy to fight for the future of liberty in our country
Will you please share your views on the political, social, and cultural forces promoting socialism in our country by completing your National Survey on Socialism using the secure link below?
There are a lot more, but you get the drift. There has to be an emergency. The world has to be on fire. The end must be nigh. Frankly, both parties need you to be scared. It doesn't matter if you filled up for $2.50 a gallon today, gas is through the roof! $8 at least! Mexicans are going to vote! You are being replaced by foreigners! Don't look at the business shows, they are deep-state puppets! Don't look at the actual inflation rate or job growth! Trust me, the economy is sinking like the Andrea Doria! It's essential that you be scared.
The only liberal stuff I get, to be honest, is a snarky newsletter I subscribed to because they are simply funny. If I were more dishonest, I'd steal their stuff, but then I'd be firmly in Rep. Comer's crosshairs for plagiarism, and I'd really have no defense.
But lots of like-minded folks are getting this stuff, and I have only scratched the surface here. It's easy to scoff and wonder who would buy this unrestrained twaddle, but look at a Trump rally. Listen to the media interviews of attendees. I don't mean to sound like an elitist here, but holy crap! It's a room full of Mortimer Snerds.
Now, those are the rallies, and probably not completely representative. But add in a collection of invertebrate politicians who aren't named Cheney, and you have a genuine movement, like it or not. I confess, that I don't get it. The facts surrounding this guy are so obvious that Ray Charles could have warned you.
He has never been a successful businessman, and yet he is just what the economy needs. He is a philanderer and bragged about it, and yet he was chosen by the Almighty to lead us. And worst of all, his ego wouldn't allow him to admit he lost an election so he tried to reverse it. And on top of everything else, he wears more makeup than RuPaul.
OK, I'm sorry. I rather lost it there for a minute. I'm going to just relax now, pour a glass of vino, and remember that pitchers and catchers report in February.
Now, he is part of the Texas Outlaw Writers, and if this doesn't pan out, the outlaw part will still work as he will indeed resort to robbing banks.
