TAB Chair VILLARREAL: To Help U.S. Lead, Texas Needs to Maintain Tech & AI Dominance Over China

A recent study found that Austin is emerging as a "Top Tier City" for tech talent, ranking #1 in the United States. And, I applaud the Texas Legislature for taking on the Tech & Artificial Intelligence (AI) challenges – but lawmakers at all levels should remain cautious about pursuing policies that slow AI innovations and tech developments. This is particularly important in light of recent reports that China is developing an AI Model trained to promote “socialism with Chinese characteristics.” The U.S. can't afford to lose its leadership position in AI to China.

GIARITELLI: Border Patrol's Lost 25% of Its Workforce Since Biden Elected – the 'Biden Effect?'

“Under Biden, things are the worst they've ever been – by far,” said one agent based in Arizona. “Agents are calling in all the time. You always hear ‘It doesn’t matter,’ or ‘What’s the point?’ in reference to doing our job. Agents are afraid of ending up on the news for doing their job – or getting in trouble for doing their job. ​​​​​​​There is no morale.” And the Agents blame Biden. With over 4,000 Federal Border Patrol Agents gone since October 2020, the early retirement rate is twice what it was under either the Obama or Trump Administrations.

Trump Gets 6% Bump in Approval after Trial Decision, says Daily Mail Snap Poll

"Amongst those who are open to changing their mind, people feel more positive by a margin of 6%. That's outside the margin of the error, and we're saying that's significant," said J.L. Partners James Johnson, who conducted the poll and added, "In particular, it extends to Independent Voters. Look at the explanations and it's clear why: people feel it was a politically motivated trial, and they view Trump as a 'fighter' – against what they see as injustice."

American Consumers are Believing Their Own Eyes – Instead of Joe Biden's Inflation Gimmicks

When it comes to measuring the country's national rate of inflation, the latest government gimmick will infuriate you – particularly when it comes to measuring the cost of your morning cup of coffee. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) uses a "basket of goods" to calculate the inflation rate – which is supposed to represent what regular Americans buy. The problem is, they keep taking things out of the basket. In fact, the April 2024 CPI inflation report last week was the first to NOT include coffee price inflation.

Biden Speaks About Explosion of Anti-Semitism that's Occurring Under his Watch

President Biden went to Capitol Hill today and spoke at the U.S. Holocaust Museum’s Memorial Days of Remembrance Event. He addressed the explosion of anti-Semitism that's occurring under his watch, but the problem is that Mr. Biden is empowering anti-Semites every time he condemns anti-Semitism and Islamophobia in the same breath. Anti-Semitism is hatred. Islamophobia is not hatred, but a fear of radical Islam based upon what radical Islamists regularly do.
