Professor Tries To Denigrate “Molon Labe” Slogan Used By Gun Rights Activists

From The Daily Beast:

Amid the banners, flags and emblems displayed at the Jan. 6 insurrection, it was strange, especially for a classicist like myself, to see some in ancient Greek. The phrase molon labe, “come and take [them]”—a phrase attributed to King Leonidas of Sparta, in reply to demands he lay down his arms—was on full display there, as it has often been elsewhere, including on the face masks of Marjorie Taylor Greene. Dozens of products—T-shirts, decals, epaulets, bumper stickers, tattoo templates, and, oddly enough, noise-canceling headphones—now bear the slogan.

Texas’s Duty To Enforce The Border

From The Federalist:

Because our states are sovereigns — with their own constitutions, laws, and obligations to their citizens — and not mere appendages of our federal government, they are authorized to wield substantial, non-symbolic power within their own territories. An assertion that states function in a realm of permission-based or symbolic authority is just flat wrong.

Rep. Cuellar Says Biden Playing Shell Game With Immigrants

From Epoch Times:

Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) said in an interview on “NBC Nightly News” that recent photos showing far less crowded housing conditions for unaccompanied migrant children in Border Patrol custody in Donna, Texas, paint a misleading picture of the border crisis.

“What they’re doing now is they’re moving the kids from the Border Patrol tents over to next door to the HHS facility. With all due respect, it’s all a shell game,” Cuellar said, referring to facilities run by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

NRA Moving To Texas

From The Truth About Guns:

The National Rifle Association, the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, is shutting down in New York State to reincorporate in Texas.  By doing so, the NRA hopes to escape the partisan political prosecution (some say persecution) by the NY State Attorney General Leticia James.  The NRA has released a new website with their presentation of the change and the reasons behind it.
