In his Memorial Day remarks at Arlington Cemetery yesterday, President Joe Biden warned the crowd, “Democracy itself is in peril – Here at home and around the world.” Well, yes, President Biden, clearly American liberty and our national security are in grave peril – and here's why you are either clueless, or complicit in what threatens us.
Remember to Honor Those Who've Given their Lives for Our Freedom this Memorial Day...
The Texas House crossed another major deadline at midnight Wednesday morning, shutting down the ability for any more Senate Bills to be considered on the House Floor. This 2021 Session's already brought several policy victories for Texas Republicans, and more are expected to be delivered to Gov. Abbott's desk in these last few days of session. Here's how to track the progress.
"In just the first four months of this year alone, the Texas Department of Public Safety has seized more fentanyl than is needed to kill every man, woman & child in the State of New York. President Biden's open border policies have led to a surge in this deadly drug coming into our communities, and we must do more to combat this crisis,” said Gov. Abbott during a Thursday a press conference in Ft. Worth.
“Texas has the 9th largest economy in the world, and this budget ensures it will continue to flourish," said Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick after passage of the 2022-2023 Texas State Budget. "Because of the border crisis precipitated by current federal policies, we maintained support for enhanced Border Security and provided pay increases for our brave Dept. of Public Safety Troopers & other Law Enforcement."
Unless we want to depend on foreign adversaries to feed our families and the growing demand around the world, its in our best economic and national security interest to support the American Farmer & Rancher. Vilifying the Cattle Industry as a major climate change contributor is intellectually dishonest & absurd. Here's why products of national importance must be made in the U.S.
The declining margins of victory for Republicans in Texas is reportedly due to changes in demographics, but the bigger reason is the increased exploitation of Early & Mail-In Voting by the Democrat machine in the Lone Star state. The Republican-controlled Texas legislature is wrapping up its biennial session this weekend, and the nation is watching to see if it enacts true election reform.
Flashback: Nearly half of Florida's Latino Voters cast a ballot for President Trump in November, and Democrats were roundly criticized for once again failing to build an outreach effort sufficient enough to even beat even Donald Trump in the Sunshine State. Of even bigger concern to them should be Trump's remarkable gains among Hispanic Voters in far South Texas' Rio Grande Valley.
In Texas, the State Legislature meets for 140 days every odd-numbered year to hear, review & potentially pass various pieces of legislation. This year's 87th Session began January 12th, and ends at midnight next Monday, May 31st. That means we're entering the final days of the 2021 Session and there are a number of specific deadlines that every legislator and their staffs are feverishly watching.
As talks over Joe Biden's supposedly "bipartisan" infrastructure plans have shown little progress for weeks, moderate Democrats in the House & Senate are withholding their endorsements. And with the likelihood of a Democrat-only backed push for Mr. Biden’s $4 trillion tax increase & spending spree growing – sagging prospects for 2022 are increasingly on Democrat's minds.
The history of the Texas’ Dyslexia Law shows an incredible journey of how one very important initiative kept special group of students from falling through the cracks in public education – and legislators should be careful if they're going to consider making any changes. Texas has always led the nation in Dyslexia Instruction, and makes the difference for millions of children & their families.
"Those who said Constitutional Carry & HB 1927 would never pass – who perpetuated stories of a 'poison pill' and other conspiracies – willfully misled 2nd Amendment supporters in Texas. They also underestimated how hard members of the House & Senate were working to pass this bill," said Texas' Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.
Sen. Cruz remarked on the commission’s first meeting, urging it to abandon President Biden’s radical agenda and “defend the independence of the Supreme Court and prevent the court from being used as a partisan weapon.”
"Our nation's founded on the idea that all men are created equal. We've fought for and secured this belief, and that unity must continue – not be forced back into the single, distorted lens of race,” said Att. Gen. Paxton, joining the America First Policy Institute, the Texas Public Policy Foundation, and 20 other state's Attorney Generals writing to Education Sect. Miguel Cardona.
The Restaurant Recovery Initiative is built around a series of training videos in English and Spanish that will share best practices to assist employers in adapting jobs to contactless operations and new service trends.
One of my early memories – and not a happy one – is sitting in gas lines in the 1970s. My parents would rustle me out of bed early on frigid February mornings and we'd pack into the Ford and speed over to the gas station. Something terribly wrong was going on in our country back then. Make no mistake: the 84-cent-per-gallon price hike of today is a highly regressive "tax" on America's motorists.
The pandemic's revealed that many school districts across Texas can’t or won’t meet the needs of our state's families, or our students. Charter Schools are stepping in to fill the gaps – which means some typical Public School Officials are getting creative to protect their turf. They've even engaged city bureaucrats across Texas to stamp out the competition – and we've got to stop it.
"When parents send their children to school, they want their students to learn critical thinking without being indoctrinated with misinformation... Texans reject the 'woke' philosophies that espouse that one race or sex is better than another, and that someone by virtue of their race or sex is innately racist, oppressive or sexist," said Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, following the Texas Senate's passage of House Bill 3979.
