'Texas’ announcement that 95,000 non-citizens were on the voter rolls quickly proved to be bogus, so Gov. Whitley quietly promised to rescind his January advisory and halt Texas’ voter purge as part of a settlement with multiple voting rights groups. The factual basis of Paxton and Trump’s tweets has been not just undermined, but fully revoked.  This is a good reminder to be incredibly skeptical of government officials who make eye-popping claims of voter fraud and whose partisan interests are at stake. Over and over and over again, these claims are later proved to be extremely dubious—if not outright false.'

"So, Whitley's list didn't really target noncitizens; it targeted naturalized citizens, which happens to be unconstitutional. In response, a coalition of voting rights groupsincluding Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, the League of United Latin American Citizens, the American Civil Liberties Union, Dēmos, the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and the Texas Civil Rights Projectfiled lawsuits. A federal judge blocked the purge in late February, describing it as "ham-handed," "a solution looking for a problem," and an effort "to intimidate the least powerful among us."

My first version of the following technology was for home use. It involved something like the devices that people talk to and order things from; but it would be programmed to chime in during overheard home conversations and nail a person for "PUT DOWN" or "overly aggressive critique"; but now I want a huge one, that is put to work during every political speech, and it would blast a horn and announce for all to hear: "Out and Out Lie!" Bleeeeeep!

Trump would hardly get through five minutes~ Don't you wish??
