Hubris: The Texas Establishment’s War Against the Grassroots

I enthusiastically support Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. Over the years, I wrote a four-part series in defense of Paxton in The American Spectator (here), and a pair of articles for City Journal (here and here). In connection with his bogus impeachment, I wrote several articles critical of the baseless proceedings for The Federalist and American Greatness. After the Texas Senate acquitted Paxton, I wrote a post-mortem of the attempted coup for The Federalist. Accordingly, I was honored to participate in the documentary produced by Texas Scorecard exposing the forces responsible for the sordid affair. The film is called Hubris: The Texas Kingmakers (here). I encourage you to watch it. Here is the trailer. Texas Scorecard produced a related podcast, Exposed (here, here, here, and here). Thanks to Daniel Greer for his recap of my comments on Texans for Lawsuit Reform, in an article titled “The Devil’s Bargain: How Texans for Lawsuit Reform ‘Lost Their Way’” (here).

Texans for Lawsuit Reform, stung by the expose, reacted with an intemperate press release.
