Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton was indicted by a grand jury in 2015 on two counts of securities fraud and one count of failing to register with the state.
He allegedly defrauded investors in a tech startup company called Server Inc. He has thus far been able to delay the start of his trial. But, those criminal charges were not the reason Paxton had 16 articles of impeachment filed against him by the Texas House of Representatives, which is controlled by Republicans.

We welcome Harvey Hilbert back for a follow-up conversation on the intellectual, social, emotional, and cognitive elements related to changing ideas of the words "Patriot" and "Patriotism". He touches on the static and the dynamic perceptions of how we understand our language. The conversation evaluates some words that seem to morph dynamically; words like "Moral" "Ethical" "Borders" "Religion" and others. It's an exploration of how and why our thinking influences our language, ourselves, and the world around us.
Harvey shared his intriguing concept of the "Eco-Patriot": One who understands and supports the planet to be deeply and completely interconnected and interdependent in all dimensions.
