Texas Gov. Greg Abbott vows to arrest Democrats who fled Lone Star State to block election bills

Published

Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) vowed to arrest the House Democrats who fled the state in an attempt to block Republican-backed voting reform bills.

“As soon as they come back in the state of Texas, they will be arrested, they will be cabined inside the Texas Capitol until they get their job done,” Abbott told KVUE on Tuesday.

“If they do not return to work, they risk losing their jobs as state representatives for not showing up.”

Abbott added that he’ll “continue to call special session after special session” until the 2022 midterm elections to compel the Democrats to do their jobs.

“So if these people want to be hanging out wherever they’re hanging out on this taxpayer-paid junket, they’re going to have to be prepared to do it for well over a year,” he said.

Soon after, the House quickly established that it lacked the two-thirds quorum required to do business, with only 80 of 150 members participating.

The Texas House then voted 76-4 to regain the quorum by authorizing the Sergeant-of-Arms to arrest the absent House Democrats who took off for Washington D.C. on Monday.

Meanwhile, the more than 50 House Democrats photographed themselves with a case of beer and no face masks on a loaded bus after their privately-chartered flight paid for by the taxpayer.

Texas Democratic lawmakers left the state in a bid to break quorum on Monday. They arrived on a bus to a charter flight terminal at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and boarded planes bound for Washington D.C.

Once in Washington, the Democrats then sang the civil rights hymn “We Shall Overcome” in front of media who were present.

The major voting bills in question, House Bill 3 and Senate Bill 1, would ban drive-thru voting, add new voter ID requirements to absentee ballots and prohibit local elections officials from proactively sending mail-in ballot applications to voters, all measures that would limit the possibility of fraud.

Mask mandate may relax in Miami-Dade schools

The mask mandate for students in some South Florida schools could be eased by the end of October as local rates of COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations continue to fall, officials said.

The number of students needing to quarantine in Miami-Dade County public schools has dropped significantly since school started in August, school Superintendent Alberto Carvalho said Wednesday.

He said the decision would be based on the latest COVID-19 data and the advice of a task force of local doctors advising the district.

The easing of the mask policy would give parents an opt-out provision for their children, he said.

A parental opt out was the original back-to-school plan in Miami. But the delta variant spread rapidly across Florida during the summer, causing a spike in cases, hospitalizations and deaths.

The district, which is the state’s largest, joined a handful of other districts — representing about half of Florida’s public school students — in adopting mask requirements with an opt-out only for medical reasons.

That defied an order by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, whose administration directed schools to allow parents to decide whether children wore masks in school.

In Miami-Dade last week, less than 1,000 of the district’s 330,000 students were required to quarantine, which was an all-time low, Carvalho said. He attributed the success to the district’s COVID-19 protocols, including mask mandates and quarantine policies.

The school mask issue landed in court, and the state began imposing financial penalties on districts defying the state mandate. The penalties have included docking salaries of local school board members who voted to impose student mask mandates.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber is facing more controversy following comments he made about reforming South Beach.

The mayor, along with others, want a change in the entertainment district, but the discussion on how to go about it has some people upset.

In audio leaked from the Sept. 13 online meeting, Gelber is heard saying, “I commit to you this, if you want something on the ballot, because it needs to be on the ballot, I’ll put it on the ballot.”

Patent approved: U.S. government could mandate social credit score and tracking app to implement forced COVID-19 vaccinations

A U.S. patent approved August 31, 2021, reveals technology used to track people in order to pinpoint those allegedly more likely to spread COVID-19 and to identify unvaccinated individuals so they can be injected with the experimental shots.

The patent was filed by Israeli patent attorneys Dr. Gal Ehrlich and Maier Fenster of Ehrlich & Fenster.

The technology used in the patent analyzes data collected by smartphones, government-mandated phone apps, intelligence agencies, public cameras, ATM cameras, private business cameras and other sources.

Essentially, people will be given “scores” based on vaccination status, mask-wearing, behavior, movement, socialization and other factors.

Electronic devices communicating with each other will determine whether or not someone is a “super spreader” or a “non-super spreader” based on the various elements.

As seen in the diagram below, the collection of surveillance technologies will send data to be analyzed in order to determine a “score” that places the person into a group.

Each group is ranked so the government can prioritize who to vaccinate next.

Another diagram shows a web of individuals being tracked while in public.

According to the document, “the government may order the citizens to install a dedicated application on their smartphones (or other smart devices like tablets, smartwatches, smart glasses, etc.) to help the government with the logistics of the vaccination procedures.”

“The government (or other body) provides the public with such dedicated smart devices,” it continues. “In some embodiments, the app and/or the smart device is configured to inform on the user’s location at all times and to communicate with adjacent smart devices (via Bluetooth for example( to assess the interactions between users, for example, vicinity between users, movement of users, etc.)”

The paper says existing technology could also be used to track people, such as Android and iPhone cell phone software.

Geolocation data will be monitored using cellphones, social media, credit card usage, IP addresses, facial recognition technology found in surveillance cameras, ATM’s, and private surveillance cameras in stores, buildings and houses.

Providing examples of tracking a subject’s behavior, the patent says it could determine if a person is “wearing a mask” by “analyzing images taken during calls” or if a person is “washing his hands” by “analyzing sounds of water running or movement by a smartwatch.”

Some experts, such as Dr. Robert Young and Dr. Vladimir Zev Zelenko, suggest graphene oxide put into the human body via “vaccination” could interact with satellites or cell towers in order to deliver information about the subject.

“What I’m suggesting is the inoculation is a guise to literally put in metallic materials, that are potentially magnetic, to interact with satellites or cell towers with the human body,” Dr. Robert Young said. “In other words, rather than using a cell phone you can use your body and your cell phone for remotely testing, let’s say, blood sugars or blood pressure or oxygen levels.  And this is what the patent actually suggests that Pfizer took out, that was awarded just last month, 31 August of this year.”

“This was the conclusion that I came to: that it is the very first patent that shows up in a list of about 18,500 for the purpose of contact tracing of, I believe, all vaccinated humans worldwide who will be or are now connected to the Internet of Things,” he told Stew Peters in September.

Around the 40:00 minute mark in the following interview, Dr. Zelenko describes the COVID tracking system in the patent.

“It describes a technology that already exists in the vaccines to measure your internal physiological data and transmit that information with your location to a third party,” he said.
