A Dallas County judge reportedly gave an ultimatum to Luther that she must issue a public apology and accept fault in order to avoid jail time. However, the Salon a la Mode owner refused to demean herself beneath the robed lawyer and stood by her principled decision regardless of the consequences.

Luther stood up for herself in the court of law against the judge who claimed she was selfish for wanting to provide for her family.

“I have to disagree with you, sir, when you say that I’m selfish because feeding my kids is not selfish. I have hairstylists that are going hungry because they would rather feed their kids So sir, if you think the law is more important than kids getting fed, then please go ahead with your decision. But I am not going to shut the salon,” Luther said.

In addition to the jail sentence, she will be forced to pay a $7,000 fine as well. The state desperately wants to make an example of Luther as what will happen when a peasant steps out of line during the coronavirus lockdown.

Big League Politics has reported on Luther’s heroic stance against arbitrary orders shuttering her business:

A Dallas salon owner went viral on April 25, 2020 when she decided to shred a citation during a rally protesting Texas’s shutdown order.

Shelley Luther originally made headlines by opening her salon on April 24 despite the state is being subject to a lockdown order until April 30.

Luther received a citation from Dallas on April 24. At the Open Texas rally at Frisco City Hall this past weekend, the crowd went wild as she tore up her citation.

“I’m not anyone special,” Luther said, according to WFAA.

“I just know that I have rights. You have rights to feed your children and make income and anyone that wants to take away those rights is wrong.”

The citation letter described Luther’s decision to open as “a violation of this order during a pandemic may be punished criminally as a misdemeanor or enforced by civil action pursuant to the order.”

Kristi Parker, a hair stylist at Luther’s Salon A la Mode, declared that the Texas State government was infringing on their right to make a living.

“Have you ever heard of the right of assemble? The right to work? The right to pursue happiness?” Parker said on April 24 when the salon reopened that day, according to KDFW.

Civil disobedience may be the only way for Americans to ever get their liberties back now that mass hysteria has taken hold across the nation.

Greg Abbott Blasts Joe Biden for “Neanderthal Thinking” Remark, Says Illegal Immigrants are Exposing People in South Texas to COVID

The Biden presidency is a hot mess.

Published

Texas governor Greg Abbott has blasted President Joe Biden for calling his lifting of statewide COVID-19 restrictions “Neanderthal thinking.”

Appearing on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” Thursday morning, Governor Abbott said that Biden’s “Neanderthal thinking” remark was “not the type of word that a president should be using.”

Abbott quickly added that Biden couldn’t have used that phrase “on a worse day” because of how he’s handling the illegal immigrants coming into Texas across the US-Mexico border—many of whom ostensibly have COVID and weren’t tested.

The day he used that word, his administration has been releasing in South Texas immigrants who came across the border that they refused to test that turned out—there were more than 100 of them who had COVID,” Abbott said. “My point is this: the Biden administration has been releasing immigrants in South Texas that have been exposing Texans to COVID. Some of those people have been put on buses, taking that COVID to other states in the United States. The Biden administration must stop importing COVID into our country. That is a Neanderthal type of approach to dealing with the COVID situation.”

Governor Abbott then defended his decision to end Texas’ statewide mask mandate and allow all businesses to operate at 100 percent capacity beginning Wednesday, March 10.

These changes that we’ve seen in Texas are not really that transformative. Maybe to people in New York it seems like this is a big difference. In Texas we went from 75 percent to 100 percent occupancy. On the mask requirement, before now there actually has not been any enforcement of the mask requirement […] We continue to make wearing a mask a suggestion and we urge all Texans to wear a mask when they’re out.”

Abbott added that Texas’ last spike occurred during Christmas and New Year’s, meaning that the increased transmission occurred because of widespread travel and indoor gatherings where people weren’t wearing masks, not because of restaurants and gyms and other businesses.

On Tuesday Mississippi governor Tate Reeves followed Texas’ lead and lifted their mask mandate and other statewide COVID-19 restrictions as well.
