You ARE the crisis.

This kind of grandstanding is so much easier than doing any real work. I can see why lazier politicians like Abbott really go for it.

Racist scum.

Hes trying to ride it to surpassing Desantis. Its not working. Maybe he's trying to pull some headlines from the hearing too but I hardly see that working either.

You know what raises food prices? I'll tell ya what raises food prices. Unchecked population growth.

Why don't reporters ask for numbers regarding how effective his "security" measures have been thus far? Oh, yeah. Lieberal Media.

He should ask the republicants in the US congress to fund the vehicle XRay machines and other border security enhancements the administration has asked for.

Grandsitting in his case

It's all true.  The Debbie Lesko lady in Arizona told us ONE BILLION MIGRANTS were apprehended at the border in the past 6 months.

What's not true is that we arrested 50 people on the terror watch list.  It happened but it sounds like a good thing and Darrel Issa is a smart!

It's easier to grandstand when you're not in a wheelchair.

I've ran out of insults for governor elf on a wheelchair.

Bingo. It's all posturing (signaling, if you will, his (lack of) virture) to try and rise up the ranks of the GQP. But he's peaked; the GQP, fascists that they are, are not gonna elect someone in a wheelchair, no matter how much of an asshole he is. To them, that's "weakness".

If Hot Wheels truly cared about Texas he would be working on his rain dance.
 
2022-06-30 7:41:24 AM  
Short memory he has. Remember the last time he pulled the stunt of inspecting every single truck that approached the border? It obliterated business on both sides, cost a mountain of money, and accomplished zilch.

Of course, this has nothing to do with border security at all. Yet another means of grifting people who have neither the understanding of the issue, nor the money to waste supporting an already dug in incumbent governor.

But hey. Do you.
 
2022-06-30 7:42:29 AM  
Man, it's almost like if they fark things up with the supply chain and then prices skyrocket and people get pissed off, they could realize that it's hurting the consumers and pumping inflation further. I'm sure they would never try to put their failings and stupid actions on Biden.

/the GOP is the arsonist trying to blame the fire department. Seriously there is no punishment or comeuppance that would be too severe in my book for them.
 
2022-06-30 7:46:49 AM  
From that picture, they could put two of those fat asses side-by-side and completely block the southern border. Texas tough indeed.
 
2022-06-30 7:47:01 AM  
Wow.  Out-of-shape, azure epaulets, cowboy hats, white shirts, black-out sunglasses, embroidered badges ...whatabunchofassclowns - That pic just oozes 'Respect My Authority'.

Everything bad about America (...just about--throw in a bible and a rich man raping child) in one picture.

Angry, angry white men.

/How's that Uvalde 'investigation' going?  Got the cops cleared of any wrong-doing?

"We need a manufactured crisis to distract people from all the other sh*tty hot takes we've had this week..."

It will all be Biden's fault.

So you're saying it is a State responsibility then and support governor Abbott taking it into his own hands?

Texas wasn't a state when the Constitution was written. Consequently, under a strict originalist reading, it doesn't exist, and this so-called governor has no authority to do so.

He won his primary, and will almost certainly win re-election in November.

Not all about mocking the disabled, however, this piece of filth deserves every piece of hatred he gets, as well as every bill sent to him and Texas from every business and citizen who does it.

No comments yet on the "will not sit idly by" from the tweet?
 
2022-06-30 8:30:55 AM  
And it will give further incentive for trucks to cross at California, New Mexico, Arizona or ship by water to another state. Hope the economic impact for Texas is even worse now.
 
2022-06-30 8:31:26 AM  
This crisis was created by and is being perpetuated by Abbot himself.  Yet he is blaming everyone else.

Yeah, I know that this is right out of the GOP playbook, but WHY is this being allowed to continue.
Why cannot the Federal Government step in to say, "You are interfering in INTERNATIONAL commerce, and it needs to stop!"?

Why does that not happen?
 
2022-06-30 9:23:28 AM  
Political stunt for his reelection campaign.

Those poor people were more than likely packed into that truck well inside the border in some remote town, after paying their life savings (and sadly most with their lives) to be hauled to a major city further north.

NOTHING he said will ever be able to change that.

Fark him.
 
2022-06-30 9:40:41 AM  
Of all the right-wing shrieking points out there, the whole "crisis on the southern border" thing maybe confuses me the most.  I can only think of one difference between what's going on there now and what was going on there 2 years ago, when Trump was supposedly "keeping our border secure."

Which probably explains the talking point.

2022-06-30 10:52:51 AM  
Do these morons listen to themselves?

GOP: Record apprehensions by border patrol on the southern border are proof of the crisis caused by Biden's open border policy to illegal immigrants!

Umm... if they're apprehending a record number of people, that sounds suspiciously like the opposite of an open border policy.

GOP: Wharrgharrbbbllll!

CONFIRMED:  THE IMMIGRANTS WEREN'T IN THE TRUCK WHEN IT CLEARED THE BORDER:

https://www.wfaa.com/article/news/local/texas/texas-big-rig-driver/285-30be725b-2b4e-41fd-bd16-d3512663ab9b?ref=exit-recirc

It's believed the migrants were loaded into the truck on the U.S. side near Laredo before heading north. The truck also cleared the Cotulla checkpoint before ending up in southwest San Antonio.

FARK ABBOTT WITH A THOUSAND RUSTY CHAINSAWS.

When did duderr end up in a wheelchair? I seem to have missed that episode.

Why else would all of these Texas law enforcement Paul Blart's be taking time to casually participate in a political event?  There's nothing more important they could be doing during a "crisis."

Texas was where I first discovered that Flavor Injected Chicken was a thing.  And they were proud of it.

migrants don't have AR-15s so of course the Paul Blarts are acting tough along the border

germ78: When did duderr end up in a wheelchair? I seem to have missed that episode.


A long while back a tree saw this asshole jogging by and realized he was evil, and the tree decided that day to be a hero and sacrificed itself in a valiant attempt to prevent the evil from spreading. Sadly though the tree tried, it wasn't able to stop him as he went to hell and the Devil didn't want him around either so sent him back to his crushed body.

For which Abbott got an $8 million settlement that continues to pay him over $15k/mth, about half of which is for pain and suffering.

On a totally unrelated note, if someone were injured today in Texas but because of medical malpractice and not an attack tree, their pain and suffering award would be capped at $250,000 thanks to a 2003 Texas law that Abbott supported when he was then attorney general and a gubernatorial candidate.

What it does is not important to Republicans. What is important is saying they are "doing something" while Democrats are "destroying America."

Prices go up? Great, blame Biden and inflation. People get mad at government? Great, you're trying to destroy that anyway. Your base will literally never blame you for ANYTHING.

Also, he passed a bill declaring that no tree anywhere can be declared of historical or architectural significance, and the state can order it to be cut down at any time, with no explanation required.
