    Day one of the Biden presidency was bad news for thousands of working class families all over Texas. Most conservative estimates suggest the border wall created over 10,000 jobs. Daniel Friend reports: Shortly after being sworn as the 46th president, Joe Biden signed an executive order to end the declaration of a national emergency that authorized former President Donald Trump to divert funds from other military construction projects to finance the construction of a new border wall. Trump’s emergency declaration was set to expire in February, but before leaving office, he extended the declaration an additional year. “Like every nation,...

    AUSTIN, Texas - Gov. Greg Abbott shared a message to the City of Austin Wednesday on Twitter, saying that if the city doesn't reinstate the ban on homeless camping, "the state will do it for them." Abbott's response comes after members of "Save Austin Now" turned in over 24,000 signed petitions Tuesday, hoping to reinstate Austin’s homeless camping ban by getting it on the May 2021 ballot. The first effort to reinstate the ban was ruled invalid back in August, and they decided to try again starting December 1. "Contrary to what Austin leaders think no one has a right...

    Texas conservative activists Maria Espinoza and Tim Lyng, who each co-founded The Remembrance Project in 2009 to bring attention to victims of illegal immigrant crime, penned a letter about the state of the GOP. They provided a copy of the letter to Big League Politics. “An America First Party, led by Trump, would be the political springboard to reignite true American passion for all who value their God-given freedoms, who realize they have been sold-out to the Communist Chinese; and who recognize that now’s the time to hold onto the greatest country in the world and placing all that is...

    With President-elect Joe Biden set to assume office and two newly-elected Georgia Democrat senators poised to be sworn in on Wednesday, Texas Republicans are preparing to mount a flurry of legal challenges to push back against the incoming administration’s progressive agenda.The Biden administration has signaled a left-leaning agenda on energy, taxes, immigration, health care, and other priorities. Biden has vowed to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord and take far-reaching steps on climate change, including seeking to cut greenhouse gas emissions by half by 2030 and effectively ending them by around 2050, sparking existential fears from the fossil fuel industry, a...
  • Texas State Historical Assn’s Chief Historian Says the Alamo Was an ‘Insignificant’ Battle and Represents ‘Whiteness.’ What Do Texas History Experts and the Facts Say?

    This past week, Texas State Historical Association chief historian Walter Buenger made two controversial assertions regarding the Alamo in a story published by USA Today. Although the battle has become a symbol of patriotism and freedom for many Texans and Americans, like the Confederate monuments erected after the Civil War, the myth of the Alamo has been used to “commemorate whiteness,” according to Walter L Buenger, Texas State Historical Association chair. The battle itself was relatively insignificant tactically speaking, but it gained recognition decades later in the 1890s as backlash to African Americans gaining more political power and Mexican immigration...

    Well, it didn’t take long for the liberal media to bash their next target: the military. Liberal America hates the military. It represents everything they hate about America. Our military is filled with our nation’s finest who are willing to die protecting what we often take for granted. It’s that vanguard aspect that liberals hate, so they must attack the military. They were just waiting for the right moment to do so again. The January 6 Capitol Hill riot has provided that opportunity.Look, you don’t have to be a national security expert to see that what happened that day wasn’t...

    The Texas Department of Public Safety abruptly announced the closure of the state Capitol on Friday evening after uncovering new intelligence that intensified safety concerns and prompted the agency to further tighten up security. The closure affects the building and the Capitol grounds, which only reopened to the public this month after being closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic and damage that officials said protesters did to state property during protests in May and June. The closure begins Saturday and continues through Wednesday. In a statement, DPS Director Col. Steve McCraw said that "the Texas Department of Public Safety is...

    Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and his health department announced Thursday that Texas had administered more than one million first doses, making the Lone Star State the national leader in vaccinations against the Chinese coronavirus. Republican-led states appear to be doing better in getting their residents vaccinated than those governed by Democrats, as of today. The governor declared in a statement: Texas is leading the way for our nation once again. This is the biggest vaccination effort we have ever undertaken, and it would not be possible without the dedication and tireless efforts of our healthcare workers. We still have a...
