Attorney General Ken Paxton of Texas recently defeated an impeachment effort launched against him by both Democrats and RINOs in the state and, now that he is no longer distracted by that battle, he’s ready to start taking the fight to his main political enemies and try to help the people of Texas.
AG Paxton spoke about those goals and what support he has in the state to start taking the fight to entities like Google which he sees as being opposed to the citizens of Texas during an appearance on Just the News, No Noise, a Just the News television program.
Beginning, he noted that the conservative voters of Texas are frustrated by the legislature’s lack of focus on important issues, saying, “We are fortunate that we have so many people that have been motivated by what happened this last (legislative) session, where they didn’t pass border security, where they didn’t pass school choice, where they didn’t do as much on property tax to get the reductions that it should have. And then they impeach me in the last couple of days of the session without any notice, without any involvement, without any transparency. And I think the voters are upset about this.”
Continuing, AG Paxton noted that voters are frustrated with Speaker Dade Phelan, who authorized the impeachment effort launched against him, saying, “It’s been too long in Texas, where the Texas House actually answered to the voters…People are running all over Texas to defeat some of these House members that have supported Dade. And by the way, he’s got several opponents. And I think there’s a very good chance that we’re going to win these elections, a lot of them.”
He then noted that his hands are tied on election security efforts, making DA elections all the more important for Republicans, saying, “I can’t represent the state prosecuting voter fraud, and therefore, the local DAs, who have been elected in the big cities, have been elected by George Soros, are not going to prosecute voter fraud, which leaves us exposed for every election going forward. So we are running three people against the current court of appeals, trying to unseat them so that we can retain power over our elections.”
Then, after commenting on those political and electoral battles, AG Paxton noted that, now that he’s free from fighting against the impeachment effort, he’s back in the saddle and leading the state’s effort against Google.
Speaking on that case and why he is waging the battle against the tech giant, AG Paxton said, “The case is going to move a lot faster. We hope to hold Google accountable for basically controlling the advertising market on the internet. They control about 97% of it. They crush their competition in all kinds of ways, either by buying them up or doing things that we would consider illegal. … So we’re trying to free the American public so that they have a choice when it comes to the internet, on how they advertise.”
Then, speaking on border security, an issue his office is currently fighting with the DOJ over, AG Paxton said, “Before Biden came into office, we were in the best shape we’ve been in my lifetime. And I can remember President Trump pushing to build the border wall, with him putting the Remain in Mexico policy in place, him using Title 42, and using all the resources of federal law to prevent illegal immigration. And as soon as Biden came in, Day One, he announced that we would not be deporting anybody. And we’ve been in the middle of litigation with him ever since, as he’s dismantled every good thing that President Trump did when he was in office.”
