“This Indictment of Rick Perry is Unbelievably Ridiculous”

perry_ap_444472c1


I knew if I waited someone else would do the hard work of researching and analyzing the bogus allegations against Texas Governor Rick Perry. Hard work pays off eventually, but laziness pays off right away.

Patrick “Patterico” Frey:

The idea of indicting a governor for exercising his veto power, unless he was bribed to do so, is so utterly ridiculous it’s tough to know where to start. As Perry said in his statement, he has authority under the Texas Constitution to exercise a veto power. A special prosecutor (especially one Obama considered for a U.S. Attorney job, but whose nomination fell victim to politics and a slow confirmation process) might not like Perry’s reason for the veto. But that doesn’t make it a crime.

Applying a statute directed at a public official’s misuse of government funds to a veto of public funds is even more bizarre. Under such a theory, once the Legislature appropriates funds, then they are “held” by the Governor, and if he vetoes their appropriation (and does so with an “intent to harm” the people who were supposed to get the money), that is a “misuse” of public funds — a first degree felony that could send him to state prison, theoretically for the rest of his life. (The punishment would be determined by a left-leaning Travis County jury.) What is the authority for treating public appropriations as property held by the governor? I am aware of none and would be shocked if the statute were interpreted that way.

Which is a long way of saying: issuing a veto is not a felony.

You’ll have to travel far and wide to find a lefty hack so soulless and partisan that they would support this. Even Think Progress seems dubious, for God’s sake.

Words truly fail to describe what an outrageous and unsupportable abuse of prosecutorial power this is. The special prosecutor, Michael McCrum, has no business being given prosecutorial authority — and the fact that Obama considered him for a U.S. Attorney position should deeply frighten anyone who cares about the integrity of the criminal justice system.


That was just the conclusion. There is a whole bunch more where he analyzes the indictment, the statutes allegedly violated, as well as the relevant Texas statutes and case law. Here is a money quote:

The Court said — and this quote is very, very important, so pay attention here: “Coercion of a lawful act by a threat of lawful action is protected free expression.”


You should all go read it. It doesn’t have a bunch of legal jargon and was written for non-lawyers. Patterico has day job as a SoCal prosecutor, so he knows his shit and he’s a good writer.

A few years ago I would have told you bookmark his post so you could easily refer to it when arguing with Vile Progs and other Leftists, but I have since realized that arguing with those idiots is futile because Koolaid is a helluva drug.

Namaste,

    This is what I mean about the futility of arguing with Vile Progs and other Leftists:

    • Lulu says:

      Bronco ran on being a disengaged “Rat Pack” type cool dude from Chi-town. Perry is known for yelling, stomping, and firing large handguns for fun in the street in Austin as a Yosemite Sam type with better grooming. Both are caricatures hyped by the media. Both are false. Marmel can not differentiate in the personality types due to his cultural blinders.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Bubba is a bigoted term. I’m getting tired of this hatred of all things southern.

    • Lulu says:

      Texas has sued Obama? The citizens of Texas have sued the federal government. Obama is not the king and pinheads like this guy cannot differentiate Obama from the federal government since they consider him the king or God emperor or some shit. Obama is not the federal government. And Bronco looses his temper all the time this guy just thinks it is “cool”. Bronco is just the chief executive for 8 years. Suing a government official is not personal unless you are a butthurt thin skinned wienie.

    This Travis county DA is a type that is prevalent in Austin. Elite, privileged, drunk, nasty, protected, ugly and increasingly marginalized. Another arrested development prog who doesn’t want to be held to any standard. She is backed by very rich trial lawyers who egg the idiot on. This is just one front of the of the proggy public integrity groups who want to maintain their privileges and they just lost one over the UT president who is king of clout in letting friends and pay to play types into the UT system to study even if they are not qualified to be janitors. They just lost that one too.

    This may be what actually happened re:Brown shooting…reliable source, I don’t know.

    http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2014/08/15/exceptional-catch-the-jj-witness-video-eye-witness-audio-of-mike-brown-shooting-sharing-brown-doubled-back-toward-police/

    From what little info in known, I thought that Brown attacked the cop and then ran; cop was pissed off and shot the fleeing felon. From the above link, it appears that Brown ran, then turned and started running toward the cop, wasn’t stopped by the 9mm until killed. The “eye” witness thought that the cop was firing multiple times and missing Brown.

    Welp, Holder just announced DOJ is rounding up witnesses, and is going to do their own autopsy.

    The fix is in.

    Oh, and going forward any white guy with a brain should never ever join a police force in a predominantly black or other minority area. Sorry, but it’s going to be war, because the left wants it to be war. Withdraw from it. Avoid it entirely. Don’t give them their war. If you are going to be pre-judged as the white devil, it’s not worth the risk.

    I’m not being mean or nasty. It’s obvious the left wants excuse for racial conflict. Don’t give it to them. Withdraw.

          I would resign if I was a cop in Furguson, If I had a store or restaurant in that part of town I would close and go somewhere else. If I were a citizen I would look for a new town to live in. They are driving out services and businesses and burning down their own neighborhood.

    Oregon Muse:

    Nothing illustrates the difference between the conservative and lib-prog worldviews like seeing the respective values play out in real life. Like a comparison between photos of the OWS camps vs. photos of Tea Party rallies. Or what the Capitol Mall looked after the Obama’s inauguration vs Bush’s inauguration 8 years earlier.

    Here’s a real-life story that I think also illustrates this:

    There’s a political split running through my family, with my father (when he was alive), brother, and myself (and Mrs. Muse, of course)on the conservative side, and a collection of cousins holding up the liberal end (my father’s sister married a school teacher, quite liberal, and had a whole passel of liberal kids).

    About twenty years ago we had a family reunion. Instead of meeting at some public park or somebody volunteering to host it at their house, as my parents did back in 1976 where I got drunk off my butt and smoked weed with another uncle (but that’s another story), we decided to have it at a Mexican restaurant close to where most of us lived. We arrived first and arranged with the management to reserve some tables. Soon the liberal contingent showed up and immediately started ordering, and they weren’t shy about scarfing many appetizers, entrees, and slamming down beer and margaritas like Prohibition had just ended.

    And then, at the end of the evening, every member of the liberal side of the family got up and walked out, leaving their bills unpaid.

    In retrospect, we should have made clear that it was expected that everyone vwould pay for their own meals. I think we expected that everyone would know this, but apparently it did not get communicated, and apparently we were very naive. The problem is, it would never occur to my father, my brother, or myself to go to a restaurant, gobble down a bunch of food, and then walk out without asking the obvious question, who’s paying for this?

    As it turned out, my father was the one who ended up paying for it. I think my brother helped, but back in those days, I didn’t have much money, otherwise I would have helped, too, more than my own meal. We were in an unenviable situation where it would have been gauche to make our liberal relatives aware of their bad manners and irresponsible behavior. Looking back on it, perhaps we should have. But my dad was so pissed, he didn’t want anything more to do with them that evening. He just said screw it, and paid.

    So, the moral of this story is, isn’t it telling that the group that gorged themselves and then left without even so much as asking a question about payment were the liberals? And that the conservatives were the ones who had to pick up the tab? You can argue politics all you want, but I think it’s incidents like these, where the values that people live by are put into practice, that really tells you what the two sides are all about.

    I don’t think it says much about their political ideology so much as thoughtlessness and bad manners. But can you imagine the histrionics if Riverdaughter got stuck with the bill for a bunch of her right-wing Christian family members?

    • Ann says:

      Yeah I don’t think it has much to do with political ideology either.

      My father is a liberal (in the 1960s sense of the word), my uncle a conservative (in the small government, I-like- guns sense of the word, but he is an atheist and my father is very religious). I can’t begin to tell you how many times my parents have paid when my uncle leaves early. If “forced” to recognize that he owes part of a tab, my uncle has brought out the calculator to figure out his portion (!!!). Always reminds me of the old David Brenner joke of owing for an olive that you pinched from your friends salad.

      My uncle is very wealthy. My parents are middle class. They are brothers, so the upbringing was the same (my grandparents were two of the best people I have ever known). Sometimes, it is willful ignorance.

    • The Klown says:

      Actually, if you invite people to dinner at a restaurant and don’t mention that you’re going dutch, you’re partly to blame for the misunderstanding. Unless you say otherwise, social invitations like that usually imply that you are treating.

      OTOH I would never go to a dinner like that without sufficient funds to pay for my own meal, drinks and tip. Even if someone else is paying for dinner, it is polite to pay (or at least offer to pay) the tip.

      IOW – DON’T ASSUME

      When you make an assumption, you make an ass out of U and umption.

    • WMCB says:

      I don’t think it’s crazy. At least, not in general – though it obviously doesn’t apply to all lefties, or all righties.

      That said, I do look at things like OWS, the litter on the Mall, etc. And yes, it does mean something. Look at the pic of the memorial DeniseVB posted. There are people REAMING those who have a problem with it. They see nothing at all weird or inappropriate in having cough syrup and blunts as a death tribute to an 18 yr old. Not for a fun teasing birthday party, but a PUBLIC MEMORIAL to his passing. Not only do they think it’s normal, they think you are a horrible, judging, hateful person for thinking it’s tacky and not a good indicator of the health of society. If you don’t go along wholeheartedly, you are a BAD PERSON.

      I’m no damn prude. I realize teens drink, I realize people have sex, etc. I’m not exactly Victorian in my sensibilities. I can be low class, and enjoy it. But it’s not, anymore, that the Left has laxer standards than me. It’s that they increasingly seem to sneer at the idea of any standards at all even being valid. There is a coarse degeneracy taking over in prog culture that has zero to do with this or that particular “sin”, more to do with a general mindset of insisting the gutter is on the same plane as the refined, and lets just all sink down to some animalistic cynical level of piss christ and trash your surrroundings and fuck beauty and NyQuil for funeral arrangements.

      I want no part of it, of this mad de-civilization. It’s destructive, it’s un-human, and its sick.

      • WMCB says:

        Sorry to rant on like this, but I look around and its just so damn depressing. Our cities are dying, the world is on fire, our young are rootless and purposeless, and the ethos of the age seems to just be disdain and YOLO – and that’s from the ADULTS. I feel like any minute now I’m going to watch the equivalent of the Library at Alexandria burning, because it’s just a bunch of pointless crap from tired old men, and who needs ’em.

        And we are coming up on a time when the newer adults will not even remember that **this is not normal**, that it wasn’t always disjointed and divided and ugly.

        • The Klown says:

          While I myself tend to be cynical and pessimistic, I must point out that everything you are saying has been said before by earlier generations. The 1920’s were decadent. The Sixties were decadent, violent and turbulent.

  20. DandyTIger says:

    The killing of Michael Brown is, wait for it, … a feminist issue. Yep.

    The outrage over the shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, has sparked a national conversation about police violence, racial justice, and the militarization of our law enforcement. It’s also renewed activists’ calls to broaden the scope of what’s considered to be a “women’s issue,” as reproductive justice advocates argue that Americans need to connect the dots between police brutality and black women’s ability to raise families.

    “The killing of Michael Brown, like the killing of many young black people before him, is rarely framed as a feminist issue or as an issue of pressing importance to those who advocate for choice, self-determination and dignity as they relate to family life,” Dani McClain, a fellow at the Nation Institute, wrote in a piece published on Wednesday.

    But women of color want to change that, pointing out that Michael Brown’s mother — like many other mothers before her — has been robbed of the chance to parent her child in a safe environment. Just as it’s harder for black women to access the resources they need to prevent pregnancy, thanks to racial and economic disparities in the health care sector, it’s also harder for them to maintain healthy families once they do have a child.

If he hadn’t been raised poor and minority he would not have been so fat then he would have been unable to knock people around with his lardy ass and rob people resulting in his then getting shot. It is really the food industries in the US fault. Or he had bad self esteem because he was called names because of our culture’s fixation of thinness by Michelle Obama and the health and beauty industry so he was just standing up for himself to buy blunts to self-medicate for his depression. Can I write dumb shit for Think Progress too? Will they pay me?

      Michael Brown was 18 years old, he was an adult. I don’t know how old his mom is, but I assure you she’s had access to plenty of birth control options her entire adult life and plenty of options for free bc.

      …robbed of the chance to parent her child in a safe environment.

      The shooting of her son by a police officer didn’t “change” her environment. Her area of Ferguson, Mo, was already unsafe. Consider, for instance, the pre-existing criminal records of her neighbors. Fallacy.

    So I had my father drive me to the mall to use a pay phone to report animal abuse.. Hey I know who did what and I would spit in a face. Got a kid to consider so I had to go anonymous. Siberian Husky found on the street starved to death. Had no collar just a chain around her neck. She got free I guess from hunger and two young men found her and took her to a vet. He/she is going to live.
    I went to the mall to use a pay phone to report. Guess what no pay phones. Security guard took me to the police.
    I was like whoa I do not know for sure if this is the dog but I cared enough to know there is a little girl that lives in that home. I never wanted to talk to the police but I cannot walk away. If it is not his dog the police leave. If it is he goes to jail. I agonized over what to do..

She never found out who had really made the call.

        I did not want to deal with the police. I had his address and the tip line on a yellow piece of paper. They took out all the pay phones. Perhaps there is another Siberian Husky maltreatedcon his block. Would not be surprised kind of place where Windows get broken all the time and people cover it with plywood. I don’t get that. How often do you break a window. I am 47 and one time I went away for the summer my dog(Henry) saw me walking down the alley and he got so excited he dived through the window but not a day to day thing and you fix it. Everywhere he lives people have plywood in their Windows. Anyhow he is my nephew( baby girl’s dad) so I had to make a decision. He has a pure bred that was great as a puppy but then it killed his girlfriend’s cat. So they tied him up on a four foot leash and let him rot. He is a twisted person . He told me she is just a dog. He had a breeder years ago and a mother(my sister) left the dog behind when her kid wasn’t’t getting along in school. Her answer give away her house buy a new one and start over. They left the dog behind. Went over two days later to clean it out. Ginger the pure bred dog was left behind with all the furniture. Everything sheets coffee cups a four thousand dollar. Pool table. A tanning bed all just abandoned. Ginger was lactating. Found her pups in a bucket of bleach water next to the garage. Approaching the 50,000 dollar marlin legal fees protecting Shay from him. I am not rich. 50k is a lot of money. But it is only money. I do not like kids. I am miserable when I wake up but hot damn that little thing opens her eyes and starts jibberish. Laughing and contemplating the world at large. I have had her for 7 plus years she will be eight in September. Great kid. I stepped in shit with her. HER allowance is contingent upon her doing an hour of French everyday. She cannot pronounce Garvin no matter how hard she tries. I say buck up kid you asked for it not me.
        Anyhow she is hell incarnate and I am never gonna let him discolored her world. The woman he lives with has a daughter I can fix nothing ever. I can love my brat and I can cry foul when I see it. Hurts me that I drove twenty minutes to a phone booth thAt didn’t exist and then had to talk directly to a cop. Dog is safe but what about that little. Girl he lives with? Who is protecting her? My dad has COPD he walks around with a tank. He has also been her coach for two years. Prick went to the borough and said my dad was unfit. Softball preteens. They gave my dad baskets of gifts at the end of the year. He gets tired and when he gets out of the car he will sit on the stoop to catch his breath. Makes this stone cold hearted son of a bitch(no sexism my mother calls me an S O B all the time) weep. So beautiful watching she who never shuts up with her great grandfather.

        The single most artistic thing I will ever do is having a bit part in her life. She was thrown away. Lucky me.

  27. Somebody says:

    So I had something frightening happen to me tonight. I was visitng my son’s house, when I got ready to leave my grandchild wanted to open the door for me, so of course I let her. She opens the door and what do I see but a large black snake, OMFG! I pull her back with one hand and slam the door close with the other hand as I’m screaming SNAKE, SNAKE, OMG SNAKE! I screamed some other things too, just saying.

    Hubby and my son were about to go investigate when there was a knock on the front door……hmmmm a knocking snake, quite unusual. I’m thinking we don’t want to answer the door for a knocking snake, maybe that’s just me. Then there are more knocks, this time a voice says Animal Control…….a knocking snake from Animal Control holy shit!

    So my son opens the door and there is some woman who claims that she volunteers sometimes for animal control in the county and knows all about wild life. She said she heard me scream snake and also scream kill it, kill it now! OK I did scream that and some obscenities too, there was a big snake at the front stoop, wouldn’t you?

    She begins to lecture me about how I shouldn’t encourage killing snakes as many of them are very helpful…..blah, blah. Oh and I’m setting such a bad example for my grandchildren. She tells me I need to come help her find the snake and we need to check the snake’s pupils, if the pupils are round then the snake is not poisonous……seriously examine a snake’s pupils?? I couldn’t contain myself, I immediately told her she was batshit crazy. She got very offended and we had a few more words. She tried to threaten me if I killed the snake and it was endangered she’d report me. As it turned out the snake was gone, I think he was in the bushes to the right of the front door, but I wasn’t going looking for him. I literally high stepped out of there leaving my son to deal with unwanted house guests (the snake and the weird lady).

    Sooooooo have any of you ever, in your entire life, heard that you should somehow examine a snake’s pupil’s? If you have, has anyone ever told how it is you are supposed to get close enough to examine a snake’s pupils? I mean if it is poisonous then I’m thinking I wouldn’t want to be close enough to it to examine the snake’s fucking pupils!

    • 49erDweet says:

            I’d love to know what the final lab reports say about his toxicology situation. It’d be handy knowing just which chemical cocktail it takes to convince fools to charge danger rather than seek safety. We could be RICH!!!!!

    I have a new goal. I met a guy who holds a local office who is all out Palin. I firmly believe congress critters should represent their districts and not the RNC or DNC. Kid is tough and pure. Okay 30 is not a kid but he is earnest. I know what I am capable of. I got a baby girl whose parents can barely read yet she has straight A’s. I bought the worst bar in the world. Cops came to me and said why. Within three months I had the local priest doing shots of tequila with me dancing to like a prayer. school board came in
    . ladies auxiliary(I have no idea what ladies auxiliary is or does0
    I went door to door talking to the neighbors. Chief of police pulled me over on the bike trail and I thought I was going to get hit with some made up charge– he said how did you do it. The place was a heroin den for decades. We tried to shut it down. Every night we had calls for fights. not one time were they ever called when I had the place. They had their Christmas party in my pub.. i Had lines out the door. I had a curse jar that I gave all the money to the local school. Thousands of dollars went in people would swear just to contribute. Pittsburgh post-Gazette wanted to do a story on it. I declined. It was just a means for me to say not the old bar . it was a huge success. I had to leave because my sister in law had a big problem with me making out with a woman. Cause of course nothing is more foul than a gay guy kissing a woman. She lost her mind crying and screaming I was going to cost her her 401k because I am gay and swapped some spit with a woman. She told my brother it was me or her and their son.
    I packed it in he is my brother and it was an LLC and my understanding of the law does not permit you to sue based on kissing.
    Anyhow I made the place not easy when the previous owner was telling everyone it was going to be a gay bar. never true. It was just a bar run by brothers I had a piece of property in the middle of a depressed steel town that had been a blight and before we even opened it was a gay bar. Awful. I put on my big boy pants and I addressed the community. I won.
    So now I despise my local congress critter. He has the backing of the RNC and is running unopposed but he is a do nothing. I my candidate decides to run in 2016 I know guerilla marketing. He may have zero budget but I will sit with his opponents record outside of Malkins, Coulters, Sterns, Ingrahams, Sustrens. I will dress up in the most absurd costume(taking suggestions) and sit at the confluence of the three river and just ask people to think.
    I lived with Chelsea Clinton’s sister in law for five years. learned a tad bit about how to play the media.
