How the Harris County District Attorney's Office ought to handle folks charged with POSSESSION of trace amounts of illegal drugs has become a defining issue in the Republican primary race for DA.

Challenger Mike Anderson appears to support the position that if an individual is found to merely possess “small amounts” of a controlled substance that individual needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

The incumbent DA, Pat Lykos , does not consider the mere possession of trace amounts of a controlled substance an issue worthy of prosecution. She argues that legislative intent allows for a DA to exercise sound judgment and discretion when considering how best to allocate available resources to fight crime…………..common sense over intolerance.

Imagine if a triage officer in charge of an Afghanistan MASH unit tied up the surgical suites with splinter extractions while US Marines bled out from IED blasts waiting for a surgical evaluation.

The differing positions came to a crescendo at a recent Republican luncheon when Mike Anderson asked Pat Lykos if possession of a small amount of cocaine, heroin, or methamphetamine was against the law and she answered that it was not. That brief snippet of their debate was posted on a political blog for viewer comment. …………..not only was the exchange completely taken out of context thereby grossly tainting any legitimate critique; it was very strangely presented by Anderson both in format and appearance. Notwithstanding, the Lykos detractors were quick to pile on the bandwagon gleefully citing the Texas Penal Code and Lykos’ “obvious oblivion” to its contents.

Lykos is no legal scholar by a long shot and by most accounts has performed dismally overall as the elected DA of Harris County; but that does not mean Andersonian logic is sound in this dialogue.

If Anderson becomes the elected DA of Harris County my advice to all Harris County residents is to NEVER carry large bills on your person…………………………the odds that they might unknowingly be tainted with white powder is surely not worth the risk.

And for all you soccer moms pinching your kids’ ADD meds……….you’ve been warned as well.

Andersonian logic on the trace possession  issue begs the question as to whether or not an individual who tests positive on a drug screen is subject to prosecution under a zero tolerance administration.

Common sense folks.........we can't afford big government, petty policies and personal agendas to bankrupt our justice system.
Team Anderson needs to focus on winning the war; not inconsequential and even damning battles.

Prosecutor named in BAT van case Newswatch a blog Εισαγγελέας ονομάζεται ΒΔΤ Newswatch σε περίπτωση van ένα blog

"State District Judge Susan Brown on Wednesday named attorney Stephen C. St. Martin as a “temporary prosecutor” to assist a grand jury apparently investigating the Houston Police Department's troubled mobile alcohol testing program. "Κράτος Επαρχιακός Δικαστής Σούζαν Μπράουν, την Τετάρτη ονομάζεται δικηγόρος Γ. Στεφάνου Αγίου Μαρτίνου ως" προσωρινή εισαγγελέας "για να βοηθήσει μια μεγάλη κριτική επιτροπή διερεύνησης προφανώς προβληματικό πρόγραμμα της κινητής Χιούστον Αστυνομικό Τμήμα της δοκιμής αλκοόλ.

The order appointing St. Martin, a former assistant district attorney, states that grand jurors are investigating possible criminal conduct by the district attorney's office. Η Διάταξη που διορίζει Αγίου Martin, ένας πρώην βοηθός εισαγγελέα, αναφέρει ότι μεγάλο ένορκοι διερεύνηση πιθανών εγκληματικών συμπεριφορών από το γραφείο του εισαγγελέα του.

Court officials said Brown intended to name another special prosecutor but hasn't signed that order yet. Οι υπάλληλοι του Συνεδρίου, είπε ο Μπράουν που προορίζεται για να αναφέρουμε ένα άλλο ειδικό εισαγγελέα, αλλά δεν έχει υπογράψει ακόμη τη σχετική εντολή.

The grand jury gained attention last week when it excluded prosecutors from listening to witnesses testifying in secret proceedings during the ongoing investigation. Η μεγάλη κριτική επιτροπή κέρδισε την προσοχή την περασμένη εβδομάδα, όταν εξαιρούνται οι εισαγγελείς από την ακρόαση των μαρτύρων που καταθέτουν σε εν κρυπτώ διαδικασία κατά τη διάρκεια της εν εξελίξει έρευνα. On Tuesday the grand jury heard testimony from prosecutors under subpoena, providing further evidence that the panel is examining the role the DA's office has played in cases involving breath alcohol testing vehicles known as BAT vans." Την Τρίτη η μεγάλη κριτική επιτροπή άκουσε μαρτυρίες από τους εισαγγελείς υπό κλήτευση, παρέχοντας περαιτέρω ενδείξεις ότι η ομάδα εξετάζει τον ρόλο που το γραφείο του ΔΑ έχει παίξει σε υποθέσεις που αφορούν τις δοκιμές οχημάτων ανάσα αλκοόλ είναι γνωστό ως ΒΔΤ φορτηγά.

Welcome to the Major League DA Pat Lykos........or should I say Major Offenders? Καλώς ήρθατε στην Major League DA Πατ Λύκος ........ ή θα έπρεπε να πω Σημαντικές παραβάτες;

*You have done some awful things to some awfully good folks. * Έχετε κάνει κάποια φοβερά πράγματα σε κάποια πολύ καλή λαούς.

*You have defamed and bullied performers for doing their jobs so that you could advance for not doing yours. * Έχετε δυσφημίστηκε και εκφοβισμού εκτελεστές για να κάνει τη δουλειά τους, έτσι ώστε να μπορεί να προχωρήσει για να μην σου κάνει.

*You have pretended to create as you destroyed the creation of others. * Έχετε προσποιήθηκε να δημιουργήσετε εσείς κατέστρεψε τη δημιουργία των άλλων.

*Your pretense has fooled too many for too long. * Καρδιές σας έχει ξεγελαστεί πάρα πολλά για πάρα πολύ καιρό.

*Your Republican base will now get a glimpse into who the REAL Pat Lykos is....the rose colored glasses are cracking. * Δημοκρατική βάση θα σας πάρει τώρα μια ματιά στο ποιοι είναι οι πραγματικοί Πατ Λύκος είναι .... το ροζέ χρώμα γυαλιά καταπατούν.

You are a creature of habit Pat Lykos. Είστε ένα πλάσμα της συνήθειας Pat Λύκος. You historically soil the messenger to hide the message. Μπορείτε ιστορικά έδαφος ο αγγελιοφόρος να κρύψει το μήνυμα.

I fully expect you to accuse Judge Susan Brown of having an unfounded vendetta. Κατανοώ πλήρως αναμένουμε από εσάς να κατηγορήσει δικαστή Σούζαν Μπράουν έχουν μια ημερήσια διάταξη ......... μία βεντέτα αβάσιμη. You will defame her husband Mark and out-perform the muddiest feral hog in Texas to personally attack Stephen St. Martin. Θα συκοφαντούν Μάρκου και ο σύζυγός της έχουν καλύτερες επιδόσεις από την muddiest άγριων γουρούνι στο Τέξας για να επιτεθεί προσωπικά Στεφάνου Αγίου Μαρτίνου.

Your tactics remind me of the late Senator Joseph McCarthy. Τακτικές σας μου θυμίζουν τα τέλη του γερουσιαστή Joseph McCarthy.

During the Army-McCarthy Senate Hearings in 1954, Mr. Welch had finally had enough when in addressing Senator McCarthy said, "You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency." Κατά τη διάρκεια του Στρατού-McCarthy ακροάσεις της Γερουσίας το 1954, ο κ. Welch είχε τελικά αρκετό για την αντιμετώπιση όταν ο γερουσιαστής McCarthy είπε, "έχω κάνει αρκετά. Δεν έχεις αίσθηση της ευπρέπειας, κύριε, επιτέλους; Έχετε αφήσει καμία αίσθηση του ευπρέπειας. "

As that hearing marked the end of McCarthy's arbitrary rule; so shall it be for Lykos. Δεδομένου ότι η ακρόαση σηματοδότησε το τέλος της αυθαίρετης κανόνα του McCarthy? Έτσι θα είναι για το Λύκο.

Judge Brown chose well in selecting St. Martin as a Special Prosecutor to bring JUSTICE back to the Harris County District Attorney's Office. Δικαστής Μπράουν επέλεξε και για την επιλογή του Αγίου Μαρτίνου ως ειδικού εισαγγελέα για να φέρει πίσω ΔΙΚΑΙΟΣΥΝΗΣ στο γραφείο του Harris County Εισαγγελέας του.

St. Martin is not afraid of Lykos. Αγίου Μαρτίνου δεν φοβάται του Λύκου. He is privy to the workings of the HCDAO. Είναι μυημένος στη λειτουργία του HCDAO. He is a REAL prosecutor and understands the Rules of Criminal Procedure and Evidence. Είναι ένας πραγματικός εισαγγελέας και κατανοεί τους κανόνες της Ποινικής Δικονομίας και Απόδειξης.

How the Harris County Republican Party leadership responds to the Lykos corruption scandal will be interesting. Πώς η Harris County Ρεπουμπλικανικό Κόμμα ηγεσία ανταποκρίνεται στο σκάνδαλο διαφθοράς Λύκος θα είναι ενδιαφέρουσα.

Will there be an onslaught of candidates filing in the Republican Primary forcing a run-off or will there be a Rock Star that is supported because she is the best qualified, albeit least political? Θα υπάρξει μια επίθεση των υποψηφίων κατάθεση στο Δημοκρατικό αρχικό αναγκάζοντας ένα run-off ή θα υπάρξει ένας ροκ σταρ, το οποίο υποστηρίζεται, διότι αυτή είναι η καλύτερη ειδική, αν και λιγότερο πολιτική;

I predict that at least four (4) candidates will file in the Republican Primary forcing a run-off. Προβλέπω ότι τουλάχιστον τέσσερις (4) Οι υποψήφιοι που θα καταθέσει στο Δημοκρατικό αρχικό αναγκάζοντας ένα run-off.

Except for a throw-down-spoiler-puppet like Jim Leitner who is ultimately responsible for the Pat Lykos debacle; these folks need to ask themselves: Εκτός από ένα πλάγιο άουτ κάτω αεροτομή-μαριονέτα όπως ο Jim Leitner ποιος είναι τελικά υπεύθυνος για την πανωλεθρία του Πατ Λύκος? Αυτοί οι λαοί πρέπει να αναρωτηθούν:

1. 1. Are you up for a run-off against Pat Lykos? Είστε έτοιμοι για μια απορροή από τον Pat Λύκος;

2. 2. Will the hard core Republicans who always come out for the run-off still vote for Lykos in spite of her disastrous performance? Θα το σκληρό πυρήνα Ρεπουμπλικάνοι που πάντα βγαίνουν για την απορροή εξακολουθούν να ψηφίζουν για Λύκος παρά καταστροφική απόδοσή της;

3. 3. Will any one besides the hard core Lykos loyalists actually vote in the inevitable run-off.....history says they won't? Θα κάποιος εκτός από τους πιστούς σκληρό πυρήνα Λύκος πραγματικά ψηφίσει στην αναπόφευκτη απορροή ..... ιστορία λέει ότι δεν θα το κάνει;

4. 4. Is Kelly Siegler in it to win it?...........a proven prosecutor who has always fought her heart out for JUSTICE and victims' rights because it is who she is and the right thing to do. Είναι Kelly Siegler σε αυτό για να το κερδίσει; ........... μια αποδεδειγμένη εισαγγελέα ο οποίος έχει αγωνιστεί πάντα την καρδιά της για δικαιοσύνη και τα δικαιώματα των θυμάτων, επειδή είναι αυτή που είναι και το σωστό.

Keep the faith........everything happens for a reason. Κρατήστε την πίστη ........ όλα συμβαίνουν για έναν λόγο.

A Black man's point of view:


By Lloyd Marcus

As millions of my fellow Americans, I am outraged, devastated and extremely angry by the democrat's unbelievable arrogance and disdain for We The People. Despite our screaming "no" from the rooftops, they forced Obamacare down our throats. Please forgive me for using the following crude saying, but it is very appropriate to describe what has happened. "Don't urinate on me and tell me it's raining." Democrats say their mission is to give all Americans health care. The democrats are lying. Signing Obamacare into law against our will and the Constitution is tyranny and step one of their hideous goal of having as many Americans as possible dependent on government, thus controlling our lives and fulfilling Obama's promise to fundamentally transform America.

I keep asking myself. How did our government move so far from the normal procedures of getting things done? Could a white president have so successfully pulled off shredding the Constitution to further his agenda? I think not.

Ironically, proving America is completely the opposite of the evil racist country they relentlessly accuse her of being, progressives used America's goodness, guilt and sense of fair play against her. In their quest to destroy America as we know it, progressives borrowed a brilliant scheme from Greek mythology. They offered America a modern day Trojan Horse, a beautifully crafted golden shiny new black man as a presidential candidate. Democrat Joe Biden lauded Obama as the first clean and articulate African American candidate. Democrat Harry Reid said Obama only uses a black dialect when he wants.

White America relished the opportunity to vote for a black man naively believing they would never suffer the pain of being called racist again. Black Americans viewed casting their vote for Obama as the ultimate Affirmative Action for America's sins of the past.

Then there were the entitlement loser voters who said, "I'm votin' for the black dude who promises to take from those rich SOBs and give to me."

Just as the deceived Trojans dragged the beautifully crafted Trojan Horse into Troy as a symbol of their victory, deceived Americans embraced the progressive's young, handsome, articulate and so called moderate black presidential candidate as a symbol of their liberation from accusation of being a racist nation. Also like the Trojan Horse, Obama was filled with the enemy hiding inside.

Sunday, March 21, 2010, a secret door opened in Obama, the shiny golden black man. A raging army of democrats charged out. Without mercy, they began their vicious bloody slaughter of every value, freedom and institution we Americans hold dear; launching the end of America as we know it.

Wielding swords of votes reeking with the putrid odor of back door deals, the democrats landed a severe death blow to America and individual rights by passing Obamacare.

The mainstream liberal media has been relentlessly badgering the Tea Party movement with accusations of racism. Because I am a black tea party patriot, I am bombarded with interviewers asking me the same veiled question. "Why are you siding with these white racists against America 's first African American president?" I defend my fellow patriots who are white stating, "These patriots do not give a hoot about Obama's skin color. They simply love their country and oppose his radical agenda. Obama's race is not an issue."

Recently, I have come to believe that perhaps I am wrong about Obama's race not being an issue. In reality, Obama's presidency has everything to do with racism, but not from the Tea Party movement. Progressives and Obama have exploited his race from the rookie senator's virtually unchallenged presidential campaign to his unprecedented bullying of America into Obamacare. Obama's race trumped all normal media scrutiny of him as a presidential candidate and most recently even the Constitution of the United States. Obamacare forces all Americans to purchase health care which is clearly unconstitutional.

No white president could get away with boldly and arrogantly thwarting the will of the American people and ignoring laws. President Clinton tried universal health care. Bush tried social security reform. The American people said "no" to both presidents' proposals and it was the end of it. So how can Obama get away with giving the American people the finger? The answer: He is black.The mainstream liberal media continues to portray all who oppose Obama in any way as racist. Despite a list of failed policies, overreaches into the private sector, violations of the Constitution and planned destructive legislation too numerous to mention in this article, many Americans are still fearful of criticizing our first black president. Incredible.

My fellow Americans, you must not continue to allow yourselves to be "played" and intimidated by Obama's race or the historical context of his presidency. If we are to save America , the greatest nation on the planet, Obama's progressive agenda must be stopped.

The story goes that when Lyndon Johnson was losing his first congressional election he put out the word that his opponent was having sex with barnyard animals. An aide innocently warned Johnson that this wasn’t true. “Make the SOB deny it,” LBJ was said to have replied.

Thus goes Texas politics.....

The Harris County Republican Party lived up to the LBJ standard in the 2008 Republican Primary and especially in the Run-Off for Harris County District Attorney……….2012 is gearing up to have the same philosophy for the HCDA Republican Primary.

A local Texas political blogger by the name of Big Jolly is supporting Judge Pat Lykos, the Republican incumbent District Attorney, in her re-election bid for DA. He is being vilified for this endorsement by nearly all the folks who know and work with Lykos.

The anti-Lykos contention being: it is one thing to endure the arbitrary vindictive incompetence of an individual on a day-to-day basis at the workplace; however, it is quite another to reach a valid character and/or job performance assessment based on limited interviews by a political blogger in a controlled setting. Secondly, Big Jolly strongly supported Lykos’ obviously more qualified opponent, Kelly Siegler, in the 2008 Republican Primary ............recognizing,  at that time, Lykos’ blatant ineptitude.

It is no secret that I am in complete agreement with the folks who actually work with Lykos on a daily basis. Notwithstanding, I appreciate the foundation for Big Jolly’s misconception and his digging his feet in the sand on the issue.

When I first met Pat Lykos she was not at all what I expected based on the horror stories I had heard from the legions of folks who had to either work for or with her. She came across as ingratiating and appeared to be caring and empathetic with strong sound convictions. It was not until I observed her in an apolitical setting where her true character was exposed. Only then was I able to make a fair and accurate judgment on the real Pat Lykos…….…..the deception revealed was astonishing.

Big Jolly is someone Lykos will pander to for political favor; not someone who will ever work with or for Lykos. It is, therefore, very unlikely that Big Jolly will ever be privy to firsthand knowledge of who the real Pat Lykos is to experience a similar epiphany.

When Big Jolly comes up short in his assessment of Lykos he is skewered by Lykos detractors. His sincere effort to seek the truth is ignored and ridiculed; which ironically reinforces the misconception.

If prosecutors expect to persuade an “outsider” as to who Pat Lykos truly is and how her tenure has impacted the justice system in Harris County………..they ought to be able to present the facts in a MATURE respectful well thought out manner supported by the evidence--of which there is an overwhelming abundance.

Failure to try Lykos in the court of public opinion with the same fortitude and character we would expect from a veteran lead prosecutor in a Death Capital will not only spare Lykos; but also result in a death blow to the Harris County District Attorney's Office.

So I submit that if in fact the goal is to restore integrity to the Harris County District Attorney's Office..........ADAs and others who are privy to Lykos' leadership failures act accordingly in their efforts to persuade Big Jolly to change course.

The greater good of Harris County and the GOP is more important than childish pouts .

Jeffrey Follks was correct today when he wrote: "despite everything Obama has done to ruin it, the economy is getting better. And while a growth rate of 2.3% and an unemployment rate of 8.3% are not exactly worth bragging about, the president is doing just that. The direction of the economy, it seems, is more important than the record of the past three years.

The problem is that the present direction is largely the product of this administration's unprecedented deficit spending and of monetary loosening on the part of the Fed. Once these forms of stimulus are withdrawn, as they must be after the election, the direction of the economy will reverse.

The real question for voters is not direction of the economy in the months leading up to the election. It is Obama's record over the previous four years and the likely direction of the economy after the election.

Half of that information is already known. In what may be the understatement of the year, the Congressional Budget Office recently noted that "in the recovery [from the 2008-2009 recession], the pace of growth in the nation's output has been anemic compared with that during most other recoveries since World War II." In fact, in every month of Obama's presidency, the unemployment rate has been above 8%. And at no time has GDP growth been higher than 3%. That is the worst post-recession record of any president in American history.

But what of the future? In its report entitled "Budget and Economic Outlook: Fiscal Years 2011 to 2021," the CBO reported that, given likely policy outcomes, "production and employment are likely to stay well below the economy's potential for a number of years." Indeed, the CBO projects that the economic growth rate will remain 2.3% throughout the decade, even under the best scenario (ignoring, for example, the inevitable effects of the business cycle). Private economists are more forthcoming: if the Bush tax cuts are not fully re-enacted, GDP growth will be cut by as much as 1%. Even Christine Romer, Obama's former economic adviser, has stated that "an exogenous tax increase of one percent of GDP lowers real GDP by roughly three percent." If all of the taxes Obama has proposed are enacted, taxation as a percentage of GDP will permanently increase from the recent historical level of 18% to over 24%. According to Obama's own adviser, that amounts to an extraordinary reduction of 18% in potential GPD growth.

An important Heritage Foundation paper, "Obama's Tax Hikes: The Economic and Fiscal Effects," studied the effects of Obama's proposed tax increases for FY2011 and FY2012. These are the same increases that he promises to enact if re-elected. Between 2013 and 2019, Obama's tax increases on small business owners and investors will cost an average of 799,000 jobs per year. Moreover, the destructive effects would continue for years beyond that. Enactment of Obama's tax plan would cut GDP by more than $1 trillion over the following decades.

It's important to recognize that Obama's plan to raise taxes on "the rich" is, in reality, a tax increase on all Americans. In reality, it is working Americans who would be hit the hardest under Obama's tax increases as small businesses fail, investment declines, and consumer spending is curtailed. Voters need to see Obama's tax proposal for what it is: not a tax on the rich, but an enormous transfer of wealth from the American people to government.

The purpose of Obama's proposed tax increases is not to restore fairness, but to increase government power by shifting revenue from the private sector to government. Once that revenue is controlled by government, it will be used to purchase influence, buy votes, silence opposition, and further restrict economic and personal liberty.

Small businesses are the main target of Obama's tax increases. According to the Heritage Foundation study, half of all those affected by Obama's proposals would be small business owners. Obama's regulatory assaults have already had a chilling effect on large corporations, forcing them to "work with" the administration or face retaliation. Large health insurance companies were intimidated into supporting ObamaCare. Financial firms were forced to accept bailout money whether they wished to or not, and having accepted such assistance, they continue to operate under agency rules that limit shareholder dividends and restrict executive pay, among other restrictions. GM and Chrysler were taken over and, it would seem, forced to support government mileage targets. New rules from the National Labor Relations Board will require every large or medium-size business to display a poster designed by the board advising workers of their right to strike. These and a thousand other regulatory actions are transforming America from a free market-society into a corporatist economy where government sets the rules. Now Obama wants to extend the same degree of control over small businesses.

If Obama is re-elected, there will be more to come. As the president has told his supporters again and again, there is "a lot more work" to do. The personal and economic liberties of Americans are under assault. Obama will not stop until our basic freedoms have been shredded, the Constitution repudiated, and our economy placed under the boot of government control.

Obama will continue to argue that he should be re-elected because the economy is improving. Certainly the president will do all he can to assure that it continues to improve right up to election day, as will the Federal Reserve under Ben Bernanke. After that, some very large bills come due. And if Obama is re-elected, the long-term damage will be economic stagnation, and worse."
