them from accessing part of the southern
border near Eagle Pass as Biden Administration
tries to cut razor wire used to slow migrant crossings

Texas governor Greg Abbott has turned the screw on the Biden administration by barring federal agents from one of the hottest flashpoints on the southern border. The White House was already demanding the Supreme Court allow it to rip down miles of razor wire the state government has strung across a 29-mile section of the border around Eagle Pass. Now the Texas National Guard has barred Border Patrol agents entirely from the 2.5-mile section of Shelby Park and defiantly stationed its military vehicles at the entrance to block access. 'That is not a decision that we agreed to,' Eagle Pass Mayor Rolando Salinas wrote as he reported the show of force on Facebook.

Bias is strong in this author. On the immigration bills, there have been numerous attempts of both houses of Congress to address immigration…all involve enabling migration at rates beyond which many are uncomfortable with, and spending monies we do not have (of course). So, critters do not want to risk their jobs. On the Taxas lands..the message could have been that the feds for attempting breaking and entering, but the State prevented these improprieties

No one is keeping the feds from "Seeing" the river...there are three bridges over that river all within 1 Mile of Shelby Park, Eagle Pass International bridge is directly OVER Shelby Park, all Much higher than the nearby land, and ALL 100% under Federal Control...In fact, under LAW the ONLY place anyone can enter is via one of those bridges, the ONLY reason anyone would cross elsewhere is if they already KNOW they cannot legally enter the US. How many miles of fence does the US Govt have around it's facilities, just in Texas alone? What is the penalty for cutting through any of them? Getting caught trespassing in any of them?

This is how civil wars start. When one government agency stands up to another. It escalates when one resorts to force and additional government agencies rush in to assist one or the other . This is potentially the flash point for open rebellion and the application of force by the fed to subjugate a state. It won't end well. The smart move would be to back down. Something that Biden won't do and something that Abbott can't do.

#3 is correct. We are looking at a clash involving states’ rights coupled with Texans watching their state being overrun by third world criminals and their poor. This isn’t 1861 but the similarities are piling up.

The NAACP is actively encouraging Black student-athletes not to attend public colleges and universities in Florida due to the state's new diversity, equity and inclusion policies. The announcement comes as reports surfaced that the University of Florida is closing its DEI office after the passage of the Individual Freedom Act, commonly known as the "Stop WOKE Act." State officials say the act prohibits institutions from using state or federal funds to administer programs that "categorize individuals based on race or sex for the purpose of differential or preferential treatment."

The Kobe Bryant statue unveiled last month in Los Angeles is littered with spelling errors and mistakes. The statue memorializing the legendary Los Angeles Lakers player sits outside the Arena, where hundreds of people gather daily. At the marble base of the statue is a rendering of the box score from Bryant’s 81-point game against the Toronto Raptors in 2006. In that box score, the name of former NBA player Jose Calderon is misspelled as “Jose Calderson,” and former player Von Wafer’s name appears as “Vom Wafer.”

Neil Young announced that he would bring his music catalog back to Spotify after previously boycotting the company for allowing podcasting giant Joe Rogan to freely discuss controversial topics related to COVID-19 and vaccinations. The 78-year-old rock and roll star demanded that Spotify remove his tracks from its service in January 2022, declaring the company "can have Rogan or Young. Not Both." [SNIP] Now, Young is returning to Spotify and claims his decision stemmed from his belief that competing services owned by Apple and Amazon have also become home to disinformation.

It was a stark warning at the worldwide threats hearing in the Senate Monday. "China's aspirations for greater geopolitical power will probably become all the more apparent," said Avril Haines, director of national intelligence. Amid discussion of two brutal wars, came alarms about TikTok. Lawmakers are preparing to vote on the fate of the app. A bipartisan measure would force the app's Chinese parent company, ByteDance, to sell TikTok or potentially be banned in U.S. app stores and web-hosting services. Critics of the bill, like the ACLU, call it "unconstitutional," saying the move would be a blow to free speech.

Top microchip makers are postponing their expansion into the U.S. and setting up shop in Israel and Russia due to equity caveats that are required for them to receive grants from the U.S. government. The Biden administration promised earlier this year that they would be handing out $39 billion in grants to encourage semiconductor manufacturing in the U.S. Shortly after the announcement however, Intel announced they would be holding off on their Columbus factory, while Samsung also delayed their facility in Texas. Despite the billions in subsidies, two experts believe the tech companies' decision to back out of building manufacturing facilities in the U.S. stems from the diversity, equity and inclusion policy.

The bill codifies many Donald Trump-era policies and might be the perfect contrast to the border policies offered by Biden during his State of the Union address to the nation the night before. “On day one, the Biden Regime implemented their open-border policies that have destroyed countless American families and made our communities less safe,” Boebert told Breitbart News.

Nikki Haley (R-SC) opted to drop out of the race, presumably seeing no viable path forward. Unlike some of her fellow challengers,

A Massachusetts town that adopted an unusual ordinance banning the sale of tobacco to anyone born in the 21st century is being looked at as a possible model for other cities and towns hoping to further clamp down on cigarettes and tobacco products. The bylaw — the first of its kind in the country — was adopted by Brookline in 2020 and last week was upheld by the state’s highest court, opening the door for other communities to adopt similar bans that will, decades from now, eventually bar all future generations from buying tobacco.

His departure will cut the House Republican margin to 218-213; Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., will continue to have two votes to spare before needing Democrats to govern.

U.S. intelligence agencies are claiming that they “expect” protests to bring down the Israeli government and replace Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been an obstacle to President Joe Biden’s plans for the Middle East. The claim emerged in the latest “Annual Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Community,” and was published by both the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times Monday evening, suggesting a coordinated leak to the media. The assessment says: Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has publicly stated his opposition to postwar diplomacy with the Palestinian Authority (PA) toward territorial compromise.
