Texas Supreme Court Overrules Liberal Cities – They Just Gave Governor Abbott Major Victory On Mandate Ban

What’s Happening:

With Joe Biden running D.C. into the ground, it falls to conservative governors to hold the U.S. together.

One of those governors is Texas’s own Greg Abbott. Despite pressure from the media and the left, he’s been pushing back on Biden’s mandates.

He’s signed orders that put Texans’ individual freedoms above the fearmongering and abuse of elected officials.

Several cities and counties tried to defy him, dragging one issue into court.

But the Texas Supreme Court just handed Abbott a major victory.

From The Hill:

The Texas Supreme Court on Sunday ruled in favor of upholding Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) order prohibiting mask mandates, a win for the governor after local entities across the state attempted to defy him…

The series of Friday rulings temporarily allowed Texas’s four most populous counties — Harris, Dallas, Bexar and Travis — to enforce mask mandates. The state Supreme Court ruling has now blocked them.

The Texas Supreme Court rejected counties including Dallas and Bexar, that tried to defy Abbott’s order against mask mandates.

In Bexar county (including San Antonio), the mayor and local judge tried to mandate them in schools and government offices. In Dallas, they tried to install wider mandates.

Big surprise, the people behind these mandates are Democrats who appear to be trying to undermine the Republican governor.

There seems to be a stark contrast between the leadership of Democrats and Republicans right now.

Democrats seem to be pushing fear and worry to coerce people into doing what they want. Instead of trusting Americans to do the right thing for their families, they are passing mandates like dictators.

Republicans, however, appear to believe that Americans have the right to decide things for themselves.

Give them the facts and resources they need and let them decide.

Why can’t Democrats understand this? Liberals from coast to coast seem to think they know better than free Americans.

Will Democrats be around when their mandates hurt families, businesses, and children’s educations? Of course not.

Gov. Abbott is siding on American liberty and personal responsibility. And it seems Texas’s highest court agrees with him.

But we probably haven’t seen the last of this fight. I wouldn’t be surprised if these counties come up with new restrictions soon.

Do you stand with Governor Abbott?

Key Takeaways:

  • The Texas Supreme Court ruled in favor of Gov. Abbott and his order on mask mandates.
  • Several liberal-run counties tried to defy the governor’s policy.
  • This comes as Democrats across the country push for new restrictions and mandates.
