    The Texas Department of Transportation has a contractor lined up to add a lane to each side of Texas 130 through Pflugerville, a popular commuter route that often backs up during rush hour.But the $36.7 million contract with OHL Construction is now caught up in the freeze on toll road projects — even though the project would be an expansion of an existing toll road, funded with toll road revenue. It would not use money from the gas, sales and energy taxes that have been the target of grass-roots anti-toll groups.“The planning and (bidding) has been done. The contractor is ready...

    Illegal alien activists shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and Democrats are blaming each other for unsuccessfully passing an amnesty. Last month, the open borders lobby, illegal alien activists, and Democrats failed to coalesce behind a number of amnesty plans for DACA illegal aliens that would have, at the same time, offset the amnesty with a reduction in legal immigration to benefit Americas working and middle class. Now, the two groups the activists and Democrats are blaming each other for the failed effort that is expected to result in DACA...

    The LEAVE OUR CHILDREN ALONE! chant is one that should rise up today. It didnt take the Womens March Youth EMPOWERan offshoot of Womens March, which upholds the unity principles of the Womens March platform to go rushing in on the exploitation of the mass murder at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. In fact it took them less than 24 hours to begin recruiting school children for a nationwide school walk-out, some of those children still grieving the deaths of their Marjory Stoneman Douglas classmates.
  • United passenger accused of racism by Jackson Lee is a human rights activist

    We really haven’t invested any virtual ink in the story of Jean-Marie Simon, the United Airlines passenger who was bumped from her first class seat in favor of Texas Democratic congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. After all, terrible things happening to people flying on United are pretty much dog bites man stories these days. But the response of both Jackson Lee and the airline to the kerfuffle is turning it into a bit more of a newsworthy item. The explanation for the alleged “mistake” and lack of a formal apology have resulted in United’s customer service department taking another self-inflicted wound....

    If both the Dem party and their running-dog activists could be identified by sound, it would be from donkey braying to pitiful squeaks, to a last ditch desperate attempt calling for screaming at the sky Activists who come on the goose step to every order issued by their progressive/left masters will do anything to amplify the pitiful squeak the Russians-stole-the-election front has now been reduced to. The pathetic squeak heard throughout the Hillary Clinton/Democratic National Committee coven will be boosted November 8 by ear-piercing Scream helplessly at the sky events on the anniversary of the 2016 election.

    Shareholder activists say they shake up companies by bringing in new, better ideas. What they don't bring, it turns out, is women. Or people of color. Firms targeted by activists end up with more white men on their boards, often replacing women and minorities in the process, according to a study by proxy-voting firm ISS. The researchers looked at 380 board seats spread across 93 companies in the S&P 1500 index targeted by activists between 2011 and 2015. A separate Bloomberg News analysis of the same period found that five of the biggest U.S. activist funds sought 174 board positions...

    Organizers of the "Women's March" and Michael Bloomberg's gun control lobbying group Everytown are participating in an anti-National Rifle Association rally today. They are currently walking from Fairfax, Virginia to Washington D.C. as part of the resistance movement. Their main arguments? -Real men don't need guns -No one is safe unless everyone is safe (whatever that means) -Loaded guns under beds are bad -The NRA doesn't respect women's rights -The NRA is full of bigots -Etc. But what's a leftist rally without a massive dose of hypocrisy? Turns out a number of Women's March leaders are walking with armed security...

    The Faith and Freedom Coalition kicked off its Road to Majority conference in Washington, DC on June 8. The highly-anticipated conference for people of faith and conservative activists included such high profile speakers as President Donald Trump. Dr. Ralph Reed, founder and President of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, which organized the event, introduced President Trump as my friend, our friend, the President of the United States, President Donald Trump causing the crowd to give the chief executive a sweeping standing ovation. The President was nonetheless at home with his people. After all, according to Reed, not only has Donald...

    Video at link. San Francisco has taken its defiance of the feds to a new level, ending its cooperation with the FBI in an anti-terror initiative begun after 9/11 - a move crtitics say could get innocent people killed. Critics say the sanctuary city by the bay's latest decision to forego cooperation with Washington, by dropping out of the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force, could put lives at risk. The JTTF has been credited with foiling 93 Islamist terrorist attacks and plots against the U.S. since 2001, including 12 this year, according to the Washington, D.C.-based Heritage Foundation.

    A unnamed EPA official published a lengthy screed online against the Trump administration, claiming the same forces allegedly behind the deaths of environmentalists abroad are working against us in the US today. . . .

This is who I am, and that will never change. I stand in solidarity with brothers and sisters that work to protect human rights, human health, and the environment here in the US and all...

    FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A couple hundred people showed up at Fresno City Hall Friday to demand the mayor reverse his decision and they want a response by March 16. It was a peaceful protest fueled by emotion and solidarity. Fresno mayor Lee Brand's announcement to not make Fresno a "sanctuary city" drew organized criticism Friday. Activists gathered in front of city hall to express their displeasure and protest the mayor's decision. "He is our representative," protest organizer Ariana Martinez Lott said. "He's representing us, so, we as a people, are telling him one of the platforms was that he...

    Radical leftists are planning to make Jan. 20 the most chaotic Inauguration Day in American history. Their stated goal is to "disrupt" the Inauguration festivities as much as possible, and they are planning a wide range of actions to achieve that stated goal. Some of the more moderate groups are using terms such as "civil resistance" and "civil disobedience," but others are openly talking about "blockades," jumping barricades, throwing projectiles and "citywide paralysis." My hope is that all of their efforts will turn out to be a big flop, but it is important to understand that these groups are well-funded,...

    What the Dakota Access Pipeline Is Really About The standoff isnt about tribal rights or water, but a White House that ignores the rule of law. Kevin Cramer A little more than two weeks ago, during a confrontation between protesters and law enforcement, an improvised explosive device was detonated on a public bridge in southern North Dakota. That was simply the latest manifestation of the prayerful and peaceful protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Escalating tensions were temporarily defused Sunday when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, at the direction of the Obama administration, announced it would refuse to grant...

    I wish this was a fake news satirical story, but sadly, it’s true. Liberal activists are outraged that the seasonal song Baby it’s Cold Outside should be banned because, wait for it, it promotes sexual harrassment and non-consensual sex.It’s a movement that started a few years ago and has been taken up with more fervor and passion every Christmas season. But this season, the movement has gained steam because, according to HuffPo, a pair of songwriters have offered up alternate lyrics to make the song more politically correct, socially acceptable, and completely awful: The duo, singer-songwriters Lydia Liza and...
