    Republic . The American republic is in grave danger. We have wandered far from the guiding principles that established our nation and preserved our way of life for more than two centuries. Because Texas was once a republic, its citizens have a unique perspective on the preciousness of independence and the sacrifices that secured our freedoms. We cherish this exceptional system of government and recognize the imminent threats that can destroy what our Founders called “the great experiment” known as the United States of America. For America to endure, every generation must safeguard our constitutional republic and representative democracy from...

    CIUDAD VICTORIA, Mexico (AP) — Gunmen aboard a number of vehicles staged attacks in several neighborhoods in the Mexican border city of Reynosa on Saturday, and at least 15 people died in clashes that caused widespread panic, according to local law enforcement. The Tamaulipas state agency coordinating security forces said in a statement that the attacks began in the early afternoon in several neighborhoods in the eastern part of the city, which borders McAllen, Texas. The agency said one person died during an attack on police near a border bridge, but it was not clear if the others were shot...

Abbott revealed the Lone Star State’s plans to Breitbart shortly before a border summit in Del Rio, Texas on Thursday. Those plans were confirmed at the summit and reported by CBS Dallas-Fort Worth. “I will announce next week the plan for the state of Texas to begin building the border wall in the state of Texas,” he declared at the event.

    Two House members nearly came to blows and had to be separated by a Capitol staffer after several lawmakers had preached about coming together as Americans. The wild scene took place as lawmakers debated certifying the Electoral votes from Pennsylvania. An altercation reportedly took place between Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) and Rep. Colin Allred (D-TX), though what prompted it remains unclear.

    I tried to contact John Cornyn regarding his participation in the American Business Immigration Coalition meeting today, while he has refused to step up in defense of President Trump. After filling in the required fields, my contact information was not accepted. I received an error: "Request not accepted. Security Risk detected." So, as a registered voter, with no criminal background, I am prohibited from contacting my senator. What's up with this? Are any other Texans who subscribe to true conservative principles receiving the same error? Or is my sharing of Stephen Bannon's War Room and other posts to facebook prohibiting...

    Art Acevedo, the police chief of the Houston Police Department (HPD), is calling on officers with the Austin Police Department unhappy over the recent budget cuts to come and work for him. The Austin City Council last week unanimously approved to slash about $150 million from its police department’s funding, or nearly a third of the department’s annual budget. “People of Houston, they don’t want less policing, they want better policing and well-trained police officers,” Chief Acevedo said. The HPD welcomed 44 new officers to the force during a Cadet Class #245 graduation ceremony Monday, Fox 26 Houston reported.

    Mark Cuban, one of Donald Trump's most vocal critics, met with the president-elect's key advisor Steve Bannon, according to reports. They met Tuesday at the King Cole Bar at the St. Regis Hotel in New York, according to TMZ, which first reported on the meeting and published a picture of the pair. (TWEET-AT-LINK) Asked whether he could confirm the meeting or give details on what was discussed, Cuban told CNBC that he would "have to pass." The billionaire entrepreneur and Dallas Mavericks owner endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election. He repeatedly criticized Trump in appearances on CNBC during...

    American Thinker ^ | 5/6/2020 | Andrea Widburg
    On Tuesday, Texas may have created the anti-lockdown movement’s first martyr when a Dallas judge sentenced hairstylist Shelley Luther to a week in prison for the crime of trying to provide for her own and her employee’s families. Texas is home to 28,995,881 people. It’s had 32,879 diagnosed Wuhan virus cases (that is, 0.11% of the population got diagnosed) and 890 virus deaths (0.003% of the population). Most of the cases are linked to nursing homes or people with co-morbidities. Even in nursing homes, though, things needn't be so dire. One doctor’s experiment shows that early intervention with the hydroxychloroquine...

    Dallas (WBAP/KLIF) – The crowd is already gathering outside the American Airlines Center for the Trump campaign rally tomorrow evening. Among those in the small crowd that is slowly building, this group of women talked to us about why they came out so early. “Mr Trump, President Trump. [What are some of the things that you support that he’s done?] Oooh so much, (the wall), the wall for sure… security … he brought faith back out in the community … all of the above and being able to say God again.” The women, mostly strangers before today are from Des...
  • Sherrod Brown, Amy Klobuchar score high on electability; Elizabeth Warren, not so much

    Now that the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination has officially started, one of the big issues that will likely come up is which candidate is the most electable. One way to find that out is to see how the different possible candidates have done in the past. Of course, it's difficult to compare candidates when they run for different offices in different years. There are, however, six potential 2020 Democratic contenders ran who ran for the US Senate in 2018. The big takeaway from those results: Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Sherrod Brown of Ohio are above-average candidates...

    Anyone wondering why religious people still support Donald Trump, despite his flaws, need only watch a recording of the Democrats’ fanatical LGBTQ town hall last week. From Elizabeth Warren mocking religious males as incapable of finding a wife to Beto O’Rourke’s promise to strip tax benefits from religious institutions, or Cory Booker’s assertion that Catholics use religion to justify discrimination, you see the ugly face of militant secularism and coercion. It is frightening that every one of the nine Democratic candidates who took part in the CNN event has signed up to extreme policies that attack religious liberty and radically...

    Beto O’Rourke is planning a counter-rally as President Donald Trump addresses supporters in Dallas next week — recalling the dueling events held on the Texas-Mexico border eight months ago that helped launch the former congressman’s White House bid. The Democratic presidential candidate will stage a “Rally Against Fear” the evening of Oct. 17 at The Theatre at Grand Prairie in suburban Dallas around the same time Trump is holding an event of his own at the American Airlines Center, home to the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and the NHL’s Dallas Stars. Trump says he’ll highlight the strength of the Texas economy,...

    When Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a rally of 50,000 Indian Americans in Houston last month, a planned guest appearance by President Donald Trump stole the headlines. But a telling moment arrived when the announcer at the event — called Howdy Modi — began reading a prepared list of members of Congress who had been expected to attend. Among those named was Texas Rep. Al Green, a Democrat. But Green wasn’t there. A day earlier, he had announced in a statement that he was bailing from the event, calling it a “photo op” for Trump. He wasn’t alone. India,...

    Please spare the life of Miss Whiskers by donating $5, $10, or even $15 to the failing presidential campaign of Robert Francis O’Rourke. Otherwise, the kitten may not be long for this world. That was said jokingly by O’Rourke (or was it?) during his interview on the stage of TribFest this weekend but it shows the level of desperation that the candidate has reached. TribFest, for those unfamiliar with it, is a three-day annual event sponsored by The Texas Tribune in Austin. It’s a far-left wonderland where people like Nancy Pelosi are not adequately liberal enough for most of the...
