… It is a Real Bad Move to Piss off a Federal judge [#Texas v US]…

.. now that the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favour of the plaintiffs [in terms of the injunction] , well , now , it should motivate the Federal Government to substantially and fully comply with Judge Hanen ‘ s order ..

.. well , now , Judge Hanen is now pissed ..

.. the Government is still making approvals of both D.A.C.A. and D.A.P.A. . Even though with the injunction they were told specifically not to . They are still up to it ..

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. Judge Hanen has summoned quite a few people to a hearing in August . Those summoned include the H.H.S. Secretary and the Secretary of Homeland Security . I would not be surprised of our new AG , Loretta Lynch , were not added to the list . She would deserve it , even though it was former AG Holder ‘ s inaction that contributed to all of this …

.. they should also bring their checkbooks . The judge is threating the whole crew with civil contempt findings if they have not fully complied with the original injuction . Somehow I get the idea that a finding of criminal contempt may not be far behind …

… Excellent (Pro Life Decision in Texas) …

… from CNSnews …

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A federal appeals court on Thursday ruled that most of Texas’ tough new abortion restrictions can take effect immediately — a decision that means a third of the state’s clinics that perform the procedure won’t be able to do so starting as soon as Friday.

A panel of judges at the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans said the law requiring doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital can take effect while a lawsuit challenging the restrictions moves forward. The panel issued the ruling three days after District Judge Lee Yeakel said the provision serves no medical purpose.

In its 20-page ruling, the appeals court panel acknowledged that the provision “may increase the cost of accessing an abortion provider and decrease the number of physicians available to perform abortions.” However, the panel said that the U.S. Supreme Court has held that having “the incidental effect of making it more difficult or more expensive to procure an abortion cannot be enough to invalidate” a law that serves a valid purpose, “one not designed to strike at the right itself.”

The panel left in place a portion of Yeakel’s order that prevents the state from enforcing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration protocol for abortion-inducing drugs in cases where the woman is between 50 and 63 days into her pregnancy. Doctors testifying before the court had said such women would be harmed if the protocol were enforced.

After Yeakel halted the restrictions, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott had made an emergency appeal to the conservative 5th Circuit, arguing that the law requiring doctors to have admitting privileges is a constitutional use of the Legislature’s authority.

“This unanimous decision is a vindication of the careful deliberation by the Texas Legislature to craft a law to protect the health and safety of Texas women,” Abbott, a Republican who is running for governor, said in a written statement.  Lawyers for Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers had argued that the regulations do not protect women and would shut down a third of the 32 abortion clinics in Texas.

Twelve of Texas’ abortion clinics won’t be able to perform the procedure starting as soon as Friday.  In a statement Thursday, Planned Parenthood said the appeals court decision means “abortion will no longer be available in vast stretches of Texas . ”        “This fight is far from over,” Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards said in the statement. “This restriction clearly violates Texas women’s constitutional rights by drastically reducing access to safe and legal abortion statewide.”

The court’s order is temporary until it can hold a complete hearing, likely in January.

.. LEC again here — Excellent news out of Texas — the activist witch district court judge ‘ s ruling was struck down . Only in part , for now . When the case comes up for argument in front of the appeallate court panel in January (presumably , in front of the same judges) , the case can likely come after the entire district court ruling . The fact that the same judicial panel will hear the case bodes well for the subject material at hand …
