Science And Education - The draft platform also targets schools, calling evolution a “controversial theory” that should be challenged in the classroom, demanding that schools restrict access to “community organizers” and encouraging schools to embrace “subjects with emphasis on the Judeo-Christian principles upon which America was founded and which form the basis of America’s legal, political and economic systems.” The platform also includes climate change denial: “While we all strive to be good stewards of the earth, 'climate change ...

Politics not the only draw for vast GOP convention Education, networking, parties bring many to one of biggest conservative events in U.S. By Brian M. Rosenthal June 7, 2014 Amy Hedtke of Grayson County wears a black powder revolver strapped to her boot. FORT WORTH - At 11:30 a.m. Friday, as U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz delivered the biggest speech at one of the biggest political gatherings in the country, GOP convention delegate Lynda Brandon was shopping for shoes in the exhibition hall. Brandon, a 69-year-old retired kindergarten teacher in a flowing American flag dress and matching bonnet, said she loves the Tea Party firebrand but had heard him speak at another event and didn't need to hear him again. "I mean, I watched part of it," she shrugged after buying a $54 pair of striped sandals. "But then I had to come down here. I really wanted these shoes." Nearly 10,000 Texas Republicans came to their party's biennial convention not just to witness its political celebrities and help shape its campaign platform, bu ...
Ted Cruz is getting lauded by fellow Texas Republicans as the next president of the United States, and Diane Sawyer is asking Hillary Clinton in gently concerned tones if it isn't unfair to the rest of the Democrat party that she hasn't publicly announced if she's running for president.

Ok Texas Democrat's put up a sad showing yesterday. The Mid-Term Elections are a vital part of our electoral process. This is where control of the house was lost the last time. If you dislike the Tea Party politics and government shutdown by people like Ted Cruz and John Boehner a better stance needs to be shown in November. Texas Republicans out voted Texas Democrat's by a rate of about 3 to 1. So if you have any thoughts of wanting to see a blue state we need more voter's to show up.
Well, the verdict's in. Texas Republicans just voted that mean-spirited, despicable racist and immigrant baiter Dan Patrick as their nominee for Lt. Governor, proving once and for all that Texas Republicans are crazy.
Today, Texas Republicans nominated their most toxic ticket ever. They will pay for their hostility towards businesses and Texas families in November.
Runoff suggestions... I've been getting questions. Most folks I trust tend to agree on everything except Lt. Gov., because nobody really likes either very much. I'm probably going Dewhurst, because my buddy Justin Padgett is going that way. The other races seem pretty clear among freedom-minded Conservatives I know. Lieutenant Governor: Good luck. Robert Morrow's comments below on other races... Attorney General - KEN PAXTON over big government Republican and Bush ally Dan Branch. Dan Branch unbelievably is for mandatory background checks for private sellers of guns and this would kill gun shows. Dan Branch is also an ally of liberal House Speaker Joe Strauss. Dan Branch is also a supporter of “Common Core” and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Empower Texans has endorsed KEN PAXTON. Gun Owners of America obviously had endorsed KEN PAXTON. KEN PAXTON is also close friends with Ted Cruz, who is better than most Texas Republicans. I have personally met KEN PAXTON and determined that he is a ...
I never thought there'd be a worse Lieutenant Governor than David Dewhurst. Looks like Texas Republicans are going to prove me wrong.

Texas Republicans with bumper stickers on their pickup trucks blaming President Obama for soaring gas prices surprisingly have one thing in common with Bay Area drivers who bought a Prius last decade to cope with sky-high fuel prices they pinned on George W. Bush. They paid the exact same for gas under both presidents. As the election nears and fuel costs continue to rise, Republicans say Mitt Romney could ease our pain at the pump if he is elected, using the same strategy as Democrats who blamed Bush for gas prices four years ago. But despite having polar opposite energy plans, Obama and Bush experienced virtually the same gas price problem, suggesting just how little control the most powerful man in the world has over this hot-button issue. Consider that the average price of a regular gallon of gas at U.S. pumps was $1.85 when Bush was sworn in for his second term in January 2005 and $1.84 when Obama took office in January 2009 on the promise of change, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administr ...

As Texas Republicans struggle to win over women voters, a staffer at a prominent GOP political consulting firm has registered a new political action committee in the state called "Boats 'N *** PAC." The San Antonio Express-News first reported that Shaun Nowacki, comptroller for Blakemore & Associates, registered the PAC with the Texas Ethics Commission earlier this month. Nowacki's firm has been hired by the campaigns of Texas Republicans Greg Abbott for governor, Dan Patrick for Lieutenant Governor, and Donna Campbell for state senator. The purpose of the PAC is unclear. It's registered as a "general purpose committee," which means it can contribute money to anyone. It has not yet released any financial disclosures. Nowacki did not respond to a request for comment. Texas Democrats released a statement on Wednesday tying the offensively named PAC to what it said was the GOP's "pattern of disrespect" toward women. “Texas Republicans say they want to reach out to women, to be more inclusive, but actions . ...

Unfortunately, several of our own Texas Representatives voted for the massive Omnibus Spending bill (HR 3547) funding ObamaCare. This bill increased discretionary spending by $64 Billion, and it not only funds ObamaCare, but it also includes several other wasteful or dangerous spending items, like: $58.5 Million to expand the NICS firearm background check program; $85.2 Billion in war spending for overseas contingency operations; $5 Billion in IRS enforcement; $4.87 Billion to fund the TSA; $1.4 Billion for Amtrak train subsidies; $612 Million for "Head Start" programs. Worse yet, there were more Texas Republicans than Texas Democrats that voted to fund ObamaCare! That's right, some of the very Representatives that tell you at T.E.A. Part ...

The actions of Texas Republicans with regard to Hispanics this week have been shameful. First, Tea Party activists in McKinney referred to distinguished Senator Leticia Van de Putte as "Barrio Boopsie." Then, a former campaign staffer for Greg Abbott and Ted Cruz tried to organize a hateful "Catch an Illegal Immigrant" game at the University of Texas. So when GOP candidates make token trips to the Valley or take $1 million from the Republican National Committee for Hispanic "outreach," I can't help but shake my head. Like my grandpa always said: "You can put syrup on a cow pie, but that don't make it pancakes." I was raised to drink water out of the hose and treat people with respect. There's a reason that disgusting illegal immigration game did not happen on the UT campus today -- it's because Texans reject what's wrong and stand up for what's right. And no matter where we stand on immigration reform, around here we respect our immigrant friends rather than belittle them. If Greg Abbott and the GOP think ...

Rick Perry, Greg Abbott and Texas Republicans won’t want to hear this: yesterday was our biggest online fundraising day of the year. The polls show Wendy Davis can win. If we keep it going, Wendy will have what she needs to take on the anti-woman GOP and turn Texas blue. We’ve only got one female Democratic governor in the country right now, and I can think of no better person to change that. You’ve got 12 hours to give and help launch Wendy toward victory. Give now. Donate $3 or more to help us make a splash with our moneybomb to provide Wendy the resources she needs to win. We’ve got an opportunity here to deal a big blow to Republican extremists. If we can turn Texas blue, we can win anywhere. Thank you, Elisabeth Pearson Democratic Governors Association
I want Mr. Cruz stop falsely claiming he represents 27 million Texans. He does NOT represent me or the over three million Texans who voted for Paul Sadler in 2012.

Nor is it clear that he represents the Texas registered voters who did not vote or the millions of Texans who are not registered voters. He is not listening or representing millions of Texans.

You just lose and lose and lose if you don't get that. I know. I spent a lot of time in Texas. Texas is not a Republican State. It is a populist State and women and minorities control the state when they are enraged. Extremism will lose and when Texas turns Democratic (as it will soon unless the Republicans find a way to appeal to women and Hispanics) there will be no Republican President in our lifetime.

Texas Republicans are moving forward with their second attempt at passing a new set of restrictive abortion laws, and appear poised to prevent state Sen. Wendy Davis—or any of the thousands of protesters and lawmakers who stand beside her—from stopping the legislation.
Wendy Davis supporters roar their approval at rally in protest at Texas abortion bill Davis headlines rally attended by several thousand people as legislators begin special session to try to force through bill Wendy Davis was rather more concise than a week earlier, but the effect of her latest speech was the same on Monday: cheers and chants from her energised legion of fans protesting the latest attempt by Texas Republicans to pass one of the country's most restrictive abortion laws. The state senator from Fort Worth headlined a rally, attended by several thousand people, as legislators prepared to begin a special session designed to force through the bill that was thwarted in large part thanks to Davis' marathon filibuster. Activists, actors and politicians joined Davis on the steps of the state capitol in Austin to protest against a Republican-backed bill that will ban abortions after 20 weeks and, opponents say, force all but five of the state's 42 abortion clinics to close. This time, Davis stood an ...

A San Antonio-based federal court ordered lawmakers to use an interim map instead. "Last month, Perry called the state legislature into a special session to deal with the congressional and legislative maps. Republicans, who dominate both chambers in Texas, intended to pass the court-ordered interim map used in the 2012 elections into law. They accomplished that this week, sending the maps to the governor’s desk. "Texas Democrats could still challenge the map in court under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. The high court did not touch that provision, which outlaws intentional discrimination in voting laws."
ON TONIGHT'S SHOW we are fortunate to have a panel comprised of organizers of the alleged "unruly mob", Shelby Alexander and Debbie Russel as well as participants Katie Heim and her 16 year old son Lyndon. of us sat glued to the live feed on YouTube earlier this week as Texas Republicans were posed to pass Senate Bill 5. SB 5 would effectively end women's access to abortion as lawmakers have already done in several other flyover states as well as across the South. What they didn't count on was Wendy Davis who effectively fillibustered for 11 hours nor what Dewhurst would later dub an "unruly mob".

From Gorilla Pig: "Folks, what's happening in Texas right now is is no longer just about abortion. Now, it's also about Texas Republicans lying, cheating and stealing to get their way, including falsifying records and scheduling a special session to re-do the vote they lost this week. "Let's show the women of Texas (and the men that support them) that they have our support more than ever. Please use this icon for your profile image and share it with your friends." ~Katie
David Dewhurst, Rick Perry and Texas Republicans are trying to shut down all but five abortion clinics in the state, forcing women into back-alley abortions, creating a black market for ad-hoc abortion pills, and denying women the family planning services provided by these clinics. Who's attacking t...
So now that I've had a chance to reflect on my rant yesterday, which was primarily directed at my liberal friends, and especially now that Gov Perry is calling a special session, it's time to write something directed at my conservative friends. I feel that my outrage yesterday at the Texas Democrats' (and much of the country's) response to SB5 is justified. To me, the liberals demonstrated what they believe in: abortion on demand without any restrictions or concerns for the well being of women or the society at large. That said, it is time for us right to life folks to step back for a moment and recognize this bill for what it is. This is Governor Perry and the Republican party reshaping the argument. The Republicans are now offering their own version of abortion on demand. Somewhere along the way, Texas Republicans decided that they will present a pro abortion bill that will put in place a few regulations. Due to the fact that this is a "conservative" bill and due to the fact that the Democrats reacted s ...
