Liberal Socialists Cited for Imposing Unlawful Shutdown Orders
The Austin, Texas mayor who told citizens to “stay home if you can” while he was vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico recently has come under fire again for more hypocritical liberal imprudence.
Adler recorded the message and posted on Facebook but failed to mention he wasn’t following his own instructions. He was actually at a timeshare after flying on a private jet with eight guests, including immediate and extended family.
On December 31, 2020, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a petition for temporary injunction and temporary restraining order in Travis County District Court to halt another Adler demand.
Paxton called out the enforcement of Austin Adler’s and Travis County Judge Andy Brown’s orders, which impose a four-day shutdown of dine-in food and beverage services from 10:30 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., December 31 through January 3.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott:
“The city and county orders violate Gov. Greg Abbott’s Executive Order No. GA-32,” a press release from Paxton’s office stated. “Relief in this suit would provide swift and much-needed victory for the people and businesses of Travis County.”
“Mayor Adler and Judge Brown do not have the authority to flout Gov. Abbott’s executive orders by shutting down businesses in Travis County and our state’s capital city,” said Attorney General Paxton. “The fact that these two local leaders released their orders at night and on the eve of a major holiday shows how much contempt they have for Texans and local businesses.”
“They think breaking the law is a game of running the clock before anyone can do anything about it,” Paxton continued. “Texas is a law-and-order state, and these are lives and livelihoods that are at stake. I’ll continue to defend them against the arbitrariness of the mayor and county judge.”
With the exception of the August 1, 1966 University of Texas Tower shootings, the number of homicides in Austin, Texas has reached an all time high under Adler.
From January 1, 2020 through December 1, 2020 the the city was approaching 50 homicides, a record. The total for 2019 was 36. Total year homicides were 32 in 2018 and 25 in 2017.
Notorious for bad traffic conditions and lengthy highway log jambs, police are continuously understaffed to meet needs. There have been over 70 fatalities in 2020 (final counts are not in as of this writing at 11:30 p.m. Dec. 31, 2020).
Is there blood on Austin Mayor Steve Adler’s hands? Some are beginning to ask as the liberal politician has followed the lead of other high crime Democratic controlled cities where murders and offenses increase while police budgets are cut.
Adler’s Austin is leading the nation with a stunning 65 percent in year-to-year increase of murders.
