Texas Dems who fled state sue Gov. Abbott for trying to bring them back: ‘Discomfort and embarrassment’

By Emma Colton

Nearly two dozen Texas House Democrats who fled the state last month have sued Gov. Greg Abbott and other Republican officials, alleging that GOP efforts to bring them back to the state Capitol for a special legislative session infringed on their constitutional rights. 

The 22 plaintiffs have been “deprived of liberty for substantial periods of time, suffered much anxiety and distress over separation from their families, and much discomfort and embarrassment,” the complaint filed late Friday alleges. 

Abbott, House Speaker Dade Phelan and State Rep. James White are all named as defendants in the case.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos Reaches Space on Blue Origin’s First Manned Launch


Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man, reached space on Tuesday on his rocket company’s first flight with several other people on board.

Blue Origin, the space company founded by Bezos about 20 years ago, has been testing prototypes for its rocket and capsule for years. On Tuesday, the launch vehicle New Shepard soared above the Texas desert and reached about 66.5 miles above the Earth’s surface before returning. It lasted about 10 minutes in all.

New Shepard was designed to hurtle at speeds upwards of 2,200 mph to an altitude beyond the so-called Kármán line—or 62 miles—set by an international aeronautics body as defining the boundary between Earth’s atmosphere and space.

War Over Constitution at the Heart of Our Country’s Division


A war over the Constitution has brought divisions in America to a “truly unhealthy” level, according to Roger L. Simon, co-founder of PJ Media and a senior political analyst for The Epoch Times.

“We have a war over the Constitution going on now. That’s probably the heart of the big split,” Simon told Joshua Phillip, host of EpochTV’s “CrossRoads” program.

“I think the divisions reached the level of being truly unhealthy,” Simon continued. “What’s going on is a bloodsport, and it’s extremely worrisome to me as a relatively old guy—very well worried about the future generations.”

Biden IRS Declares Christian Activism Too Political For Non-Profit Status

By Tristan Justice

Six months in, President Joe Biden has made good on his pledge to be a more aggressive third-term continuum of President Barack Obama, and that includes the weaponization of the administrative state to crack down on political dissidents.

On Thursday, Biden’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS) denied a Texas Christian group’s application for non-profit certification this week claiming its educating on Christian values is political.

“You do not qualify as an organization described in IRS Section 501(c)(3),” wrote IRS Office of Exempt Organizations Rulings and Agreements Director Stephen Martin in a letter dated May 18 to the group Christians Engaged, accusing the Garland-based group of “political campaign intervention.”

Texas Governor Dismisses Biden’s Gun Control Measures as ‘Show’


Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Sunday pushed back on President Joe Biden’s newly announced executive actions on gun control, saying those proposals are no more than a “show” that doesn’t actually address crimes involving guns.

Is The U.N. Behind The Migration Going On Around The World And At The U.S. Border:


The United Nations’ role in immigration policy is growing worldwide with the establishment of a UN “Network for Migration” in dozens of countries to facilitate large migratory flows, sparking alarm among American border-security advocates already concerned about mass migration and the escalating crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The UN networks, which are led by a coalition of UN agencies, exist to support the implementation of the controversial “Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration” (GCM) adopted by the UN and over 150 of its member states in December of 2018.

Among other goals, the global agreement aims to facilitate the expansion of what the UN describes as “regular migration,” providing more legal pathways for would-be immigrants seeking to re-settle in wealthier countries such as the United States.

“Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.”

“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

Since COVID19 first hurtled over the horizon, before landing upon us all with great force, I find that I have been asked to believe in many impossible things. First, I was told that attempting to create herd immunity was not achievable. It would also be extremely dangerous and would inevitably result in many hundreds of thousands of excess deaths.
