Our favorite famous Doctor and resident S**t-kicker is back at it! This time he’s writing an open letter to the Attorney General.
It’s just a little note reminding him of some basic facts. Like the oath he took to uphold the Constitution, whether the elected officials above him care or not.
Here is that letter in its entirety.

Thank you for writing me your note by text and sharing your perspective.
Please allow me to share my perspective.
You chose to intervene in my lawsuit, Hotze et al. v Hidalgo, in behalf of Socialist/Communist Hidalgo. My lawsuit challenges the constitutionality of her executive orders. You did not have to intervene on her behalf. You chose to do so.
Furthermore, you wrote to the trial court asking that my case today, in which I plea for a Temporary Injunction against Hidalgo’s order, be dismissed for lack of standing and lack of jurisdiction.
You have now written in different cases that neither the trial court nor the Texas Supreme Court has jurisdiction over Abbott and Hidalgo. Which court then would have jurisdiction? This is illogical thinking on your part.
Abbott, Hidalgo and other elected politicians cannot just dictate new laws and penalties without being able to be challenged in court. Read the Texas Constitution, Article 1, Section 28, “No power may suspend laws in the state except the legislature.” The preeminent laws are the Texas and U.S. Constitutions.
Both Abbott and Hidalgo have arbitrarily locked down and regulated businesses, schools and churches. They have declared some business as essential and others as non-essential.
These edicts are unconstitutional based upon the first, fourth, and fourteenth amendments to the US Constitution.
Our freedom to worship and to peaceably assemble have been violated. Our businesses have been closed down and regulated without legal due process. Our equal protection under the law has been denied, some businesses being considered essential and others considered non-essential. Thousands can march in protest while others have been denied church services.
Why hasn’t Abbott called a special session of the legislature?
Abbott and you do not want any of my cases to be decided on their merits by the Texas Supreme Court. You have continually sided with Hidalgo and Abbott as they trample on our Texas and U.S. Constitutional rights. I am so disappointed in and perplexed by your actions.
Republicans claim to uphold our Constitutional rights. With few exceptions, elected Republicans have sat idly by and watched you, Abbott, and numerous other tin-pot dictators tread on our liberties.
The primary purpose of government is to protect our God-given, unalienable Constitutional rights. You have refused to do that.
Ken, it’s not too late to do the right thing and stand up for our Constitutional rights. When Abbott violates both the Texas and U.S. Constitutions, you are obligated by your oath of office to oppose him.
Thank you for taking time to read and reflect on my perspective. It is shared by hundreds of thousands of conservative Republicans.
Committed to restoring our God-given, unalienable constitutional rights, I remain, as always,
Steven Hotze, MD
Conservative Republicans of Texas
Dr. Hotze is indomitable when it comes to our Constitutional rights, now isn’t he?
Maybe he can track down that lady doctor who claimed that HCQ as part of a drug mix is an effective cure that had a perfect track record in her 350 cases and get the ball rolling in the authentication of her claims.
It sounded like she made a reference to Texas in that clip, so he might not even have far to go to find her.
