Currently, there is no school choice in the Lone Star State for low-income parents. Gov. Greg Abbott and a broad coalition of parent groups are pushing for the state House to clear a historic education savings account bill that has already passed the State Senate, and the opponents fail to acknowledge the bill they oppose actually directs more money per student for rural schools – and higher pay for teachers.
The power-hungry Democrat enemy hates us – and is dead serious about converting its hatred into policy. From legalizing crime, to weaponizing the government against us, from disenfranchising us at the ballot box, to disarming us in our homes, to gagging us on social media and leveraging the regime media to hide the truth and amplify the lies, this is a cold war where we become serfs if we don’t win.
We must recognize and appreciate the sacrifices made by these heroes in blue. Texas is a state that values law and order and our law enforcement officers work tirelessly to uphold these principles. They face a wide range of challenges, from tackling violent crime and drug trafficking to managing traffic safety and responding to emergencies.
Gary Moretti and his fiancée booked 30 rooms at Newburgh, NY's Crossroads Hotel for their upcoming June 24th wedding – but New York City Mayor Eric Adams quickly demolished their plans and forced the hotel to cancel the couple's Legal Contract so he could implement his new "Illegal Immigrant's 1st, Everyone Else Last" policy. Nearly two dozen struggling Homeless Veterans also got the boot, some who'd served in Vietnam or Afghanistan.
The U.S. Dept. of Justice & FBI "failed to uphold their important mission of strict fidelity to the law." Instead, a hoax was perpetuated on the American People – by the highest levels of our Federal Government – despite the fact that "neither the U.S. nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion" to investigate allegations that Donald Trump's 2016 campaign colluded with Russia.
The left's censorship efforts continue. Last week, Townhall published a column warning about the dangers of President Biden's open border policies and their implications on national security. It was written by retired Navy Captain Hung Cao, who came to America as a child and refugee from Vietnam. Remarkably, when Mr. Cao's op-ed was posted on Facebook, it was flagged as "hate speech" and eliminated from circulation.
In a free and affluent country, there will always be clustering, as people choose to live in neighborhoods with congenial churches and stores, near neighbors with similar tastes or values, connected to schools and venues where their children make friends and find mates. And often some segregation is unproblematic, while other segregation, namely, separating people of one race from another, is legally suspect and loathsome.
Most Democrat politicians are demanding unfettered "freedom" for the homeless to live on the streets. Advocates are taking over NYC Subway Stations, dominating the media with their "demands." And too little's being said about the needs of Regular Americans! What about the rights of Pedro Morales in Austin, Texas? The small-business owner had a homeless encampment pop up in the alley next to the building he owns?
The British antitrust cops just announced they will oppose the proposed blockbuster $68.7 billion merger of two American companies -- Microsoft and gaming company Activision Blizzard, the owner of the wildly popular game Call of Duty. This decision is bad news for investors in companies, gamers and workers. But it's very good news for America's competitors in Asia and Europe.
Right now, it's open season for criminals to prey on normal people – but in America, it's supposed to be law-breaking criminals who live in fear, not us law-abiding citizens. I say we make it open season on criminals. We’re sick of criminals – and we must fight back to stop the left from canceling self-defense. How is it that the guys defending average citizens on a subway train in NYC are the ones being treated as criminals?
Republicans have won the popular vote for the House of Representatives in 4 of the 7 Elections since 2008 – and they won a majority of seats in a 5th. But there may be even better news for Republicans in the long run. They benefited marginally from the reapportionment of House seats (and, therefore, Electoral Votes) after the 2020 census, and they stand to make much bigger gains in the 2030 Census.
Do Americans really believe that embracing drag-queen shows at military bases, allowing abortion up until the moment of birth, encouraging transgender men to compete in "women's" sports, and the effort to ban the gas-powered internal combustion engine are effective ways to ensure good relations between the United States and our allies? No wonder the Biden White House's new cultural imperialism is proving to be so disastrous.
New York City's mayor can regularly be heard complaining about the strain being placed on his "Sanctuary City" because of the flood of illegal aliens being shipped there by red state Governors. Now Chicago's joining the chorus – Democrat-run localities advocating for open borders who are now choking on their wish. Republican Governors are giving them a big dose of their own medicine, but will Democrats shut it all down?
That's it – they've finally blown it. How could Fox do this to Tucker and their viewers? Their dominance is over. Let's face it: There have been quite a few moments over the past decade when we've all been told that Fox News had blown it, that Fox had finally angered their viewers for the last time... that Fox News was history, and yet, somehow, Fox News continues to dominate cable news.
When they're elected to be our Texas Representatives in Austin, legislators are charged with protecting the weakest & most vulnerable among us – and legalized gambling is proven statistically to harm the Poor & Young Adults the most. Make no mistake, the gambling industry is funded by those who can least afford to lose their money, and who are most likely to become addicted.
The voting machine company Dominion had alleged some of Fox's hosts had either promulgated, or allowed their guests to push, a false narrative that the corporation's voting machines were "fixed" and misreported the vote count in some precincts of the 2020 presidential election.
Though Tucker may have been tossed off his perch at Fox (or jumped – we will eventually get the details on how this all went down), he will land on his feet and crush the libs beneath his preppy Topsiders. The answer to the question “What will Tucker do now” is the same answer as the answer to the question about what the 800-pound gorilla will do: “Anything he wants.”
Economist Steve Moore at the Committee to Unleash Prosperity estimates that a 1% drop in annual GDP growth, due to more & bigger government, has lopped off about $15,000 in Median Family Income. If we'd continued the 3.1% growth, the average American would have some 22% in higher income, Moore says. And now Mr. Biden and his party want a blank check on the earning power of the American people?
It should be pretty clear that raising your tax rates to 70% or 80% or 90% would be an economic killer. Jobs, businesses and people would leave – or the rich would stop investing. We know that every time tax rates have been raised that high, as during the Great Depression and in the 1970s, the economy crashed. Yet on Tax Day this year, about a dozen left-wing millionaires joined some of the most liberal Democrats in Congress for a press conference.
Disney under former and since-reinstated CEO Bob Iger has opted to attempt a not-so-clever end-around that would thwart the will of Floridians, as represented by the Florida Legislature and entrench Disney's peculiar legal arrangement in Central Florida for another 30 years. Try as Disney might, the forthcoming result will be a familiar one: Florida and DeSantis are going to win again, and Disney is going to lose again.
