TX 'NO GROPE' BILL BACK ON! Rick Perry Announces Presidential Run

Perry adds anti-groping bill to special session

Gov. Rick Perry announced he had added legislation that would make it illegal for TSA agents to engage in “intrusive touching” at airports security checkpoints without probable cause to the list of items for the legislature to consider during the special session.
The measure had previously failed to muster enough support in the Texas Senate to come up for a vote because the Justice Department wrote a scathing memo against the bill, which threatened legal action against the state, and the measure became enmeshed in Senate politics.
There are questions about what impact the legislation might have since airport security is a federal matter.
Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, who was accused of lobbying against the bill in May said he was “pleased” by Perry’s decision.
“I’m very pleased that Governor Perry agreed to add this legislation to his Special Session call,” Dewhurst said. “Addressing unreasonable and unlawful searches of innocent travelers by some TSA employees is an issue that affects all Texans who use air travel, and it should not wait until next Session.”
Before the Senate took up the bill initially, the Justice Department sent a letter to state advising that passage of the bill would result in immediate legal action by the federal government and that it could result in airline flights to and from Texas being delayed or cancelled.
Opponents of the bill used it as ammunition to stall the bill. Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston, blamed Dewhurst for the unexpected opposition and claimed Dewhurst was openly lobbying Senators against the bill. Dewhurst said that Sen. Kirk Watson, D-Austin, had told him there were 12 Senators against the bill, enough to block it from coming up for consideration.
The day after, Patrick slammed Dewhurst.
“Apparently, for political reasons… he came up with this elaborate political play to kill the bill without his fingerprints,” Patrick said, speaking to the drama over the anti-airport pat downs bill that failed yesterday.
When asked about how would affect his relationship with Dewhurst, he paused for a while before answering the question.
“I have to ask myself,” Patrick said, before trailing off again.
Shortly after making those comments, Patrick announced that he would explore entering the U.S. Senate race and challenge Dewhurst’s bid to replace retiring Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.
The addition of the anti-TSA bill to the call comes just a couple of days after a Texas Republican activist confronted Perry about the issue while he was signing copies of his book ‘Fed-Up’ at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans.
The Houston Chronicle’s Joe Holley reports that during the exchange, Perry told activist Wesley Strackbein that there simply weren’t the votes to pass the measure, an answer that Strackbein wasn’t pleased with.
When he got to the head of the line and told the governor he was disappointed about his lack of support for the anti-groping bill, Perry said “Woo!” and then went on to say there wasn’t enough time in the special session to round up support for the bill. “They don’t have the votes on either side,” the governor said, trying to move Strackbein along. “That’s what I told them. I said, ‘Bring me in a multitude in votes.’”
Strackbein was polite with the governor but displeased. “This is a flimsy excuse, as the bills considered in the special session and the length of the session itself are the sole prerogative of Perry to determine,” he said later. “His comment, in effect, was: ‘I’m powerless to do what I’ve been empowered to do.’”
Conservative activists have held at least two rallies at the Capitol, protesting the Texas’ Senate’s inability to pass the legislation.
One of the rallies was led by talk show host Alex Jones, a controversial figure best known for propagating conspiracy theories about the September 11th terrorist attacks.
Author’s note: Attribution to Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston, was cleaned up. Second graph was clarified from “failed to pass” to “failed to muster enough support in the Senate to come up for a vote.” Both are accurate because a bill obviously can’t pass the Senate if it can’t muster enough support to come up for a vote.
Rick Perry Announces Presidential Run

Over the past few weeks, the corporate media has buzzed with word that Texas governor Rick Perry will run for president. Although Perry has yet to officially declare his bid, Infowars.com can unequivocally state that he will indeed announce his candidacy.
A Perry run was the plan all along, Perry insiders told Alex Jones. As the so-called dean of Texas writers, Paul Burka, explained in his Texas Monthly article written in February of 2010, during the race for governor Perry had his eye on the White House. “Perry’s inner circle, particularly his consultant Dave Carney, has believed that he has had national potential at least since 2006,” writes Burka.
Perry has held his cards close to the vest in order to create the aura of the reluctant Texan of principle called to serve his country by Republicans and the establishment conservatives, many now professing to be outsiders opposed to politics as usual in Washington.
“You can expect the revived talk of a Rick Perry for president campaign to shift into hyperdrive now that Rush Limbaugh is declaring the Texas governor the best hope Republicans have to bring life to a lackluster presidential field,” the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported on May 18.
Using the bully pulpit of his popular radio show, Limbaugh said the “staunchly anti-Washington Perry has the mix of message and personality and appearance to drive Democrats ‘nuts’ and dispel America of the notion that President Barack Obama is unbeatable in wake of the death of Osama bin Laden.”
Limbaugh and the Republicans, however, do not mention the fact that Perry is a one-time Democrat and the former campaign manager for none other than Al Gore, who is supposedly the polar opposite of the Republicans, at least according to the false right versus left paradigm that drives establishment politics.
Perry, of course, is nothing if not an establishment globalist, as his unswerving support for a NAFTA Superhighway demonstrates. His coy reluctance to serve is merely a cheesy campaign trick designed to provide him the aura of the Texas outsider who loathes business as usual inside the district of criminals.
The establishment is attempting to sell Perry the same way they sold Obama the Man of Change.
Rick Perry is the consummate establishment politician. For a complete run-down on Perry, see 14 Reasons Why Rick Perry Would Be A Really, Really Bad President.
