It’s come to this: Stylist goes to jail for defying order to open so she can pay her mortgage and feed her kids

This happened in Texas. Granted it happened in Dallas, which really isn’t part of the real Texas we know anymore.

Shelley Luther, owner of “Salon A La Mode” in North Dallas has bills to pay – and children to feed. She tried to keep her business open and was served a temporary restraining order to close last week and refused.

Shelley was eventually arrested and ended up in court. She was sentenced to 7 days in jail for civil/criminal contempt of court and fined $7,000.

The good judge, Eric Moye, told Shelley at her hearing that “she could avoid jail time if she apologized, admitted she was wrong, and agreed to close her hair salon until it was allowed to open.” He also told her she was being selfish.

Shelley’s response? “Feeding my kids is not selfish.”

Since when do “orders” force one to give up their economic freedoms? The Constitution does not suspend your rights.

Too bad Shelley didn’t own an “ESSENTIAL” business such as a liquor store or an abortion clinic. After all, cutting and coloring hair is SO MUCH more dangerous.

There is a GoFundMe set up for Shelley here.

Texas criminals released from jail while sting operations set up to catch those dastardly folk performing salon services in their homes

The Wuhan virus has produced a unique phenomenon in America: Criminals are set free while people are being targeted for disobeying emergency orders.

In the great state of Texas, inmates are being released despite the protest of Gov. Abbott. Public safety now means “flatten the curve.”

But the Laredo Police Department is on top of protecting public safety: In Mid-April, they arrested two people for soliciting their salon services on social media and violating the city’s “Stay Home Work Safe” order. Their Wuhan Virus Taskforce was on top of protecting public safety – unless you count releasing criminals back into the streets.

As reported by KGNS:

“The two investigations originated from tips on Wednesday, April 15th. Both of the alleged violators allegedly solicited customers online via social media.

Two undercover officers working on the COVID-19 Taskforce Enforcement made contact with each solicitor to set up an appointment for a cosmetic/beauty service that is prohibited under the emergency ordinance.

Police arrested 31-year-old Ana Isabel Castro-Garcia at the 1200 block of Harding Street after she allegedly agreed to provide an undercover officer with nail service. Castro-Garcia allegedly admitted that she was running a nail salon inside her house and promoting her business via social media.

She was arrested and charged with Violation of Emergency Management Plan C/B and was transported to the Webb County Jail where she was held in lieu of a $500.00 bond set by Judge Dominguez.

In the second case, Brenda Stephany Mata, 20, was arrested at the 1100 block of Hubner Street after she allegedly agreed to perform eyelash service inside her home for an undercover cop. Mata was arrested and charged with Violation of Emergency Management Plan C/B and was transported to the Webb County Jail.

Police would like to remind the community that during the Stay at Home order, non-essential business shall remain closed and any violation will result in a citation or even jail time.”

Judge issues cease-and-desist order to Hobby Lobby in Dallas County, TX

The good judge who issued this order is Clay Jenkins. From his Twitter bio: “Chief Elected Official of Dallas County. 2nd Largest County in the Lone Star State. Known in TX as the County Judge. Home to 2.6 million.”

He ordered a Hobby Lobby store closed. Read the Order here.

Apparently there’s some rhyme and reason as to what businesses local governments determine are “essential.”

Liquor stores are open. Some liquor stores also sell food so that’s why they are deemed “essential.”

Home Depots are open because they sell supplies like plexiglass, which businesses in my town have had to install at checkout counters.

Wouldn’t Hobby Lobby be deemed essential since they sell fabric that people may need to make masks?

If the liquor stores, Home Depots and Wal-Marts can implement healthy/safe practices to be open, then why can’t Hobby Lobby? The judge explained (in some tweet that I can’t find now) that it’s about making sure less people get sick so they don’t get overrun at hospitals (basically bed capacity). The local governments are shutting down businesses based on predictions and models.

Our economy is in for a world of HURT in about a couple more weeks..

Heroism and Second Amendment rights set aside: USA Today pushes a gun control narrative

USA Today tweeted yesterday the following: “Opinion: Jack Wilson is exactly the type of person you want around with a gun because he’s a firearms instructor. But we know nothing about the at least six other parishioners who also appeared to draw their handguns. And that’s terrifying.

“Journalist” Elvia Diaz

From the headline at the opinion piece: “Armed, even in church: Texas shooting is about a lot more than Jack Wilson’s heroism”

The author, a journalist named Elvia Diaz, further asks, “Jack Wilson is a hero. But why were so many other parishioners armed? And how did the shooter get his gun, given his criminal history?

She’s asking so many questions, let me help her out with a few answers…

For example, why must one be armed in church? Because evil exists EVERYWHERE, Elvia.
Why were so many parishioners armed? Because of the Second Amendment.
How did a criminal get a gun? Because criminals DO NOT FOLLOW the law.

Here’s excerpts from her opinion piece:

“Jack Wilson is a hero alright. It took him only six seconds to kill a gunman at a Texas church, saving countless lives.

Unfortunately, that kind of split-second heroism has been turned into a PR tool by gun advocates.

The reality of Wilson’s heroism is a lot more complex. He wasn’t just an ordinary parishioner, as gun advocates may want you to believe. The church’s volunteer security team member is a firearms instructor, gun range owner and former reserve deputy with a local sheriff’s department, according to a New York Times detailed account.

The real story here isn’t heroism

Of course, that wouldn’t matter to the churchgoers of that community of roughly 18,000 residents, right? What matters is that Wilson saved them with a single shot and other gun-wielding parishioners were ready just in case Wilson failed.

But have we really reached a point when each of us need to carry a firearm anywhere we go? Gun advocates certainly think so. They point to Wilson and the new Texas law that allows him and others to carry firearms inside the church.

The Second Amendment gives Americans the right to bear arms. And that isn’t going anywhere. But that constitutional amendment doesn’t spell out the types of firearms Americans should bear, nor does it give Americans the right to sell them to anyone to carry anywhere.

We know firearms are readily available to anyone who wants one, really. And that’s part of the problem. Sunday’s shooting isn’t just about Jack Wilson’s heroism. It’s about how Kinnunen got a hold of a weapon in the first place, given his criminal record.

If this womyn has NO CLUE as to how a criminal can obtain a gun as a prohibited possessor, I can’t help her. She’s intent on pushing a gun control narrative.

And shame on her for turning Jack Wilson’s excellent taxpayer relief shot that resulted in saving human lives into a “PR stunt” by gun advocates.

Dallas jury rules against dad trying to save his 7-year-old son from “gender transition”

This is just sad.

From LifeSiteNews’ YouTube video:

“A Texas jury has ruled against Jeffrey Younger, the father who is trying to protect his seven-year-old son, James, from chemical castration via a gender “transition.” This means James’ mother, Dr. Anne Georgulas, will be able to continue “transitioning” him into “Luna,” and now has full authority to start him on puberty blockers and eventually cross-sex hormones.”

Read the whole story here.

Anther detail? The doctor/mother isn’t even the child’s biological mother. Read about that little detail here on Twitchy.

I wonder if the father’s counsel presented the information issued earlier this month by the FDA which claims that thousands of deaths are linked to the puberty-blocking drugs now increasingly given to children who suffer from gender dysphoria or claim to be “transgender.”

From Breitbart: “Between 2013 and June 2019, FDA recorded 41,213 adverse events, including 6,379 deaths and 25,645 “serious” reactions in patients who took the hormone blocker known as Lupron — the same drug given to children who say their gender identity is not consistent with their biological sex.”

Read that whole Breitbart story here.

I hope Mr. Younger appeals his case.

Hollyweird sad that Louis Vitton opens plant in Texas because OrangeManBad

Those infected with TDS show their true colors: Their hatred for President Trump consumes them so much that they can’t celebrate the creation of 1,000 American jobs.

Last Thursday before his campaign rally in Dallas, President Trump (along with Ivanka and Jared) joined the CEO of high-fashion label Louis Vuitton to celebrate the opening of a large facility in Alvarado, Texas.

CEO Bernard Arnault told WWD: “We are very honored to have the President of the United States. I’m not here to judge any types of policies. I’m here to work with my brand, and we are going to (over five years) have one thousand people working here, and that’s what matters.”

Instead of celebrating this job-creation endeavor, TDS-infected “celebrities” chose to bash President Trump because OrangeManBad. The Hollywood Reporter has some of the responses:

Actress Debra Messing: “Just so you know, Trump is at a Louis Vuitton opening while 10s of 1000s of Kurds — who were forced to flee their homes — try to find a safe place to survive as refugees.”

TDS-infected Debra Messing

Hollywood stylist Karla Welch: “Money over morals. Welcome to America. But maybe judge his racism/sexism/climate denierism and pls @lvmh don’t act like @realdonaldtrump has done anything for workers. Or kids in cages, don’t worry about judging that. I wonder what he would have said to Hitler. It’s that business men chose their money over their morality. There isn’t a grey space on this.”

Stylist to Julia Roberts, Elizabeth Stewart: “We in the biz love the people at LV but it’s soul crushing to see Bernard Arnault associate with this cruel and criminal regime which is going to go down on the wrong side of history.”

Stylist Alexandra Mandelkorn: “Oof this make me reallllly over LVMH. Wonder how @badgalriri feels about this.”

Makeup artist Rachel Goodwin: “F*CK this is so bad.”

Illegal alien accused of shooting transgender woman was previously deported

Illegal alien Ramirez-Cayente/Dallas County Sheriff’s photo

Ruh roh, demorats…you’ve got an undocumented immigrant who is a prohibited possessor versus a highly-protected special class – transgender womyn. Which one you going to protect in this case?

From Fox News: A Mexican citizen who allegedly shot a transgender Dallas woman last month was living in the United States illegally and is now a fugitive, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials said.

Domingo Ramirez-Cayente, 29, deported in 2010, was arrested Sept. 24 and charged with aggravated assault, The Dallas Morning News reported. He reportedly admitted to shooting Daniela Calderon, 35, six times in the chest, stomach and hip.

Calderon told the newspaper Ramirez-Cayente yelled homophobic and transphobic slurs during the attack.

Instead of being held in police custody, Ramirez-Cayente posted a $25,000 bond and hasn’t been seen since. It was unclear if he remains in the area. Dallas County prosecutors wanted him to be fitted with an ankle monitor, but the terms of his bond were set before they could intervene.

“The magistrate set the bond at $25,000 with no ELM (electronic leg monitor). As soon as the D.A.’s Office was made of aware of the low bond, we moved to amend the conditions of bond to include a monitoring device; unfortunately, the defendant had already fled,” Kimberlee Leach, a spokeswoman for the Dallas County District Attorney’s office, told the news outlet.

Back in March 2010, Ramirez-Cayente was taken into custody by ICE agents near Brackettville, Texas, after entering the U.S. illegally, the agency said.

“Ramirez-Cayente was processed as an expedited removal and removed to Mexico on March 27, 2010. ICE has not encountered Ramirez-Cavente since his 2010 removal,” said an agency spokesperson.

ICE did not immediately respond to Fox News for comment.

Anyone caught reentering the U.S. illegally can be charged with a felony. It was unclear if the Dallas Police Department flagged Ramirez-Cayente as an undocumented immigrant charged with a crime.

Demorat Texas judge “apologizes” for joke about accident that left Governor Abbott paralyzed

Judge Eckhardt proudly wearing her “Pussy Hat”

Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt wore her pussy hat in her courtroom in January 2017. I’m sure she’s really, really serious when it comes to furthering the debate on political discourse.

The good judge wearing her pussy hat in a court of law.

——————————-

Us conservatives are not snowflakes when it comes to humor.

Yet if you have to defend your joke as “disagreeable” then it really isn’t a joke. Either defend it as funny or not.

One look at her Twitter timeline and you can decipher all you need to about her desire to “further the debate” and “political discourse.”

It’s good to know where the good judge stands.

From Fox News: A Democratic judge in Texas apologized Friday for saying the state’s governor, Greg Abbott, ‘hates trees because one fell on him,’ a reference to an accident 35 years ago which left Abbott paralyzed.

Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt made the quip during a discussion at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin about the Texas Legislature overriding local ordinances such one in the state capital regarding the cutting down of trees. Eckhardt’s comment drew laughs from the panel’s audience.

The comment was first reported in a tweet by The Federalist political editor John Daniel Davidson.

“In my panel today at the Texas Tribune Festival on ‘Public Enragement’ I spoke about the importance of being able to disagree without being disagreeable. Then I said something disagreeable,” Eckhardt said in a statement, according to The Texas Tribune.

“I want to apologize to Governor Abbott. I made a flippant comment that was inappropriate. The comment did nothing to further the debate I was participating in, much less further the political discourse in our community, state, and nation. While the Governor and I disagree on a number of issues, that is no excuse to be disagreeable.”

Abbott, 61, was left paralyzed from the waist down since 1984 when an oak tree fell on him while he was jogging in Houston. He has used a wheelchair ever since.

Travis County Republican Party chairman Matt Mackowiak said Eckhardt’s remark showed a “profound lack of compassion” towards someone with a disability.

Judge Eckhardt apparently believes that his disability is open to ridicule if it helps her make a political argument. This joke represents a profound lack of compassion from Judge Eckhardt,” he said in a statement. “There is no place for insulting Americans with disabilities and Judge Eckhardt should know better.”

Abbott’s office could not immediately be reached for comment.
