Texas Governor Greg Abbott flew to Israel on a private jet that belongs to Sheldon Adelson, a billionaire political donor and lobbyist on behalf of Israel. A year later, Abbott signed HB 89 into law, which prohibits state agencies from contracting and investing with any company that boycotts Israeli products. Private businesses wanting to provide goods or services to Texas now must sign a statement swearing to place the economic benefit of a foreign nation above freedom-of-choice of American citizens to do business or not to do business with whomever they wish. -GEG
Governor Greg Abbott today signed into law House Bill 89 (HB 89), known as the Anti-BDS (Boycott, Divestments, and Sanctions) bill, which prohibits all state agencies from contracting with, and certain public funds from investing in, companies that boycott Israel. The Governor hosted the bill signing at the Jewish Community Center in Austin.
“I am proud to have commemorated Israel’s Independence Day by signing into law Anti-BDS legislation in Texas,” said Governor Abbott.
The bill, authored by Representative Phil King, prohibits the state of Texas from conducting business with companies involved in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel. After the bill becomes law, it ensures that certain public funds are not invested in any entities participating in this movement. Additionally, state contracts will only be given to verified businesses to guarantee that Texas maintains a strong and supportive relationship with Israel.
Yes, you read that correctly. All private businesses wanting to provide goods or services to the State of Texas, and get paid for doing so, must now sign a statement swearing allegiance to the foreign nation of Israel.
For example, just imagine that you are a Texas pediatric oncologist born in Palestine (the nation in the Middle East, not the town in Texas) and you choose to accept the very low fees to treat Texas’ poor children covered by Texas Medicaid and CHIP. Apparently, you must now sign a statement supporting Israel’s apartheid government, and swear not to refrain from buying Israeli merchandise, in order for you to be compensated by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission for your work as a physician.
Robert Mueller suggested to Congress that they have a potential obstruction case, which creates an opening for Congress to Impeach the President anyway. The burden may now be on the President to prove he is innocent.
Thai authorities filed a complaint accusing the couple of breaching a section of the country’s criminal code that relates to threatening the sovereignty of a state, and erosion of a state’s independence – these charges carry a death penalty!
According to a poll recorded in 2016, a stunning 67% of Republican voters thought mass immigration was a critical threat, but only 16% of GOP leaders agreed that it was a serious problem. Politicians serve their donors instead of their constituents, which has led to bad US immigration policies and open borders.
The health department has not disclosed the number of people who contracted measles post-vaccination. One doctor cited in the lawsuit argues the current Brooklyn measles cases are not “a clear and present danger to the public health” sufficient to require a mandatory vaccine order.
Instead of releasing asylum sekers, the Department of Homeland Security will have the authority to detain them indefinitely. The effect is expected to discourage new migrants because they will not be able to work and send money to their country of origin if they are imprisoned.
President Trump rejected a resolution from Congress to end US military support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen. Congress has the legal ability to compel the removal of US military forces, absent a formal declaration of war.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
Israel implied that it was responsible for the missile strikes at the Damascus airport in Syria that they claim was a depot for weapons imported from Iran by Hezbollah militants. Earlier this week, Israeli forces bombed a military camp for pro-Syrian forces. There is no doubt that Israel is waging war against Syria.
Israeli soldiers have killed 32 Palestinians near the border fence in Gaza. The Palestinian Authority says that the unarmed civilians have been egged on by Hamas to sacrifice themselves to gain international attention. Israeli fear has caused the dehumanization of the Palestinians who are protesting the loss of their land and their dire living conditions.
Politico published a report accusing Hezbollah of trafficking drugs into the US. The motive behind this report is to demonize the Lebanese military/ political organization that is affiliated with Iran. The motive for this fabrication is to scrap Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran and incite all-out war.
