Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) showed up at the Salon a la Mode in Dallas on Friday to receive a hair cut after the salon owner was freed from her Draconian punishment.
Shelley Luther was jailed on contempt of court charges earlier this week, sentenced to seven days behind bars, and subject to $7,000 in fines for refusing to keep her salon closed due to quarantine edicts. This made her a hero, and eventually her case was overturned by the state supreme court.
“I find it outrageous and out of touch that during this national pandemic, a judge, in a county that actually released hardened criminals for fear of contracting COVID-19, would jail a mother for operating her hair salon in an attempt to put food on her family’s table,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said.
“The trial judge did not need to lock up Shelley Luther. His order is a shameful abuse of judicial discretion, which seems like another political stunt in Dallas. He should release Ms. Luther immediately,” he added.
“Compliance with executive orders during this pandemic is important to ensure public safety,” Governor Greg Abbott said in a statement on Wednesday. “However, surely there are less restrictive means to achieving that goal than jailing a Texas mother.”
“Throwing Texans in jail who have had their businesses shut down through no fault of their own is nonsensical, and I will not allow it to happen,” Abbott explained. “That is why I am modifying my executive orders to ensure confinement is not a punishment for violating an order.”
Cruz was a huge proponent of the state government to giving Luther back her freedom after it was stripped away from her by the courts.

“7 days in jail for cutting hair?? This is NUTS. And government officials don’t get to order citizens to apologize to them for daring to earn a living,” Cruz wrote in another tweet published on Wednesday.

Cruz showed up at the salon on Friday while wearing a facial covering to receive the haircut. He met with Luther while he was getting his trim and they had a brief discussion about their lives as well as their love of freedom and the great state of Texas.
Luther was sentenced to jail by the Obama-loving District Court Judge Eric Moyé, who attempted to compel Luther to admit she was being selfish for wanting to provide for her family and her community. She refused to humor his abusive tactics.
“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 to the judge.
Luther’s stand ultimately paid off, as hundreds of thousands have been raised in a GoFundMe on her behalf, and she has become a national hero. Civil disobedience is having an incredible impact in pushing back against lockdown overreach.
SCAM HEARING: Rudy Giuliani Gets Squeezed by Michigan GOP Leaders with Key Whistleblowers Unable to Give Testimony
State representative Matt Hall perpetrated this scam.
Tonight’s hearing in Lansing, Mich. featuring attorney Rudy Giuliani has been deliberately scheduled late at night by Republican leaders so whistleblowers can be disenfranchised and not have their powerful testimonies heard by the masses, Big League Politics has learned.
Earlier today, journalist and whistleblower Shane Trejo received a call from Rudy Giuliani attorney Christina Bobb asking him to give testimony with Giuliani about the fraud he witnessed in Detroit on election day. Trejo also hoped to talk about the terror campaign instituted against whistleblowers and public officials by Michigan attorney general Dana Nessel.
Trejo had given truncated testimony at a hearing before the Senate Oversight Committee on Monday, in which he was limited to under three minutes. The video can be seen here:
However, shortly after Bobb extended the invitation for Trejo to speak, she was forced to rescind it. Bobb explained that Trejo would not likely be included on the docket because state representative Matt Hall scheduled the hearing in the House Oversight Committee at 6pm. Trejo believes this is being done to deliberately limit the time in which whistleblowers are able to speak.
“Matt Hall first said that he wasn’t going to bring Giuliani into the state of Michigan because of “logistical” concerns. After overwhelming anger due to his cowardly betrayal of his constituents, he was finally forced to acquiesce and hold a hearing,” Trejo said.
“Then he decided to hold the hearing at 6pm. Now, countless whistleblowers are having their voices muted as a result. This is just another insult against the heroes risking it all to come forward and expose the most heinous crime in U.S. history,” Trejo added.
Big League Politics has reported about the complicity of Michigan Republican leaders with the Democrats who orchestrated the vote steal:
Earlier this week, Big League Politics reported on the cowardly Republicans on the state board of canvassers who signed off on a dubious vote even after dozens of conservative whistleblowers have come forth detailing a third-world gangster vote steal operation that occurred in the city of Detroit.
One Republican on the state board of canvassers, Norm Shinkle abstained from the vote, being too weak to actually oppose electoral impropriety. The other Republican on the state board of canvassers, Aaron Van Langevelde, actually voted with the Democrats to certify election results marred with improprieties and abnormalities.
“We have a clear legal duty to certify the results of the election, as shown by the returns that were given to us,” Van Langevelde said. “We cannot and should not go beyond that. As John Adams once said, ‘We are a government of laws, not men.’”
“This board needs to adhere to that principle and do its part to uphold the rule of law here today. This board must uphold the law and comply with our legal duty to certify this election,” he added.
Van Langevelde received a great deal of support from the liberal media. He also received the backing of the House Republican leadership in the state, who will keep him employed in his cushy role with the party for going along with the façade.
“Aaron has been a very valued member of this team and will continue to be next session,” said Republican Speaker-elect Jason Wentworth of Farwell.
Republican House Speaker Lee Chatfield of Clarklake praised Van Langevelde’s betrayal as a great example of “America at work.”
“As we have been saying consistently for weeks, the Legislature will uphold the law and respect this result as it works to improve the process for next time,” Chatfield said.
Van Langevelde works as a policy adviser and deputy legal counsel for the Michigan House Republican Policy Office. He was effectively carrying out policy from his GOP establishment masters when he joined Democrats to betray his oath of office earlier this week.
These are the primary Republicans standing in the way of electoral integrity in the state of Michigan.
