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 . ...

Think your representative is "REALLY" representing you??? Think again... and read this: The political elite in Washington thought you weren't looking last month when they slipped through a trillion-dollar spending bill, providing more taxpayer dollars to fund ObamaCare. 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 ...

If we can turn Texas blue, we can win anywhere. Thank you, Elisabeth Pearson Democratic Governors Association

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.

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 ...

from FED UP with Governor Rick Perry- Perry signs into law and makes permanent a Congressional district map which was drawn by the Federal District Court and only meant to be temporary. Can you say, "future law suit?" "Earlier last year, Texas Republicans attempted to pass a more aggressive map, but a federal court in Washington, D.C., struck it down also under Section 5. 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."

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.

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 ...

Governor Perry, You’re OUR Only Hope. Please VETO SB 346 and HB 1600. These bill are on your desk now. Please veto them to help protect Texans. In light of the IRS scandal, you would think that Texas Republicans would not be so foolish as to vote for SB 346 in the state legislature, but apparently they are that foolish. The legislation, in Texas of all places, would require nonprofits engaged in politics to disclose all their donors. “Shouldn’t they,” you may say. Oh *** ‘NO’ they should not. Please Governor Perry, veto SB 346. Should it pass, it would enable the intimidation and bullying of conservatives, driving his very base of support from the public arena. He is now the only hope for Texas conservatives." HB 1600 - ... "the granting of emergency cease and desist authority in Section 1.03 of this bill is a major problem.

Perry & Texas GOP Leaders on State Payroll for 118 Years! Texas Republican leaders have set the standard for entrenched professional politicians Rants against “government employees” and “career politicians” have been a staple of Republican campaign rhetoric for years. Even though he is paid more by taxpayers than any other governor in the country, no one rails harder against government spending and government employees than Rick Perry. However, despite attempts to portray themselves as anti-government outsiders, Rick Perry and Texas Republicans are setting the standard for entrenched, out-of-touch, government dependent, professional politicians. Texas Republicans make up an entrenched political class of state payroll lifers It might surprise some observers – and Tea Party activists – to know that not only has Rick Perry been on the Texas payroll for over 28 years, the other five top GOP state office-holders have been drawing a state paycheck for between 14 and 20 years and counting. The six to ...

Just sent this off to Sara Legvold, Bill Eastland, Leslie Recine, Jim Borchert, Jean McIver, Tom Washington, Janet Jackson, Frank Steed: Tarrant County SREC Members, and Others: By now many of you have been contacted by Texas Republicans concerned about action the State House GOP Caucus appears ready to take Monday toward taking a caucus position on extending Medicaid in Texas, pursuant to the provisions of the ACA (Obamacare). Some of you are wondering why that's coming up right now in such force, and why any resolution would be desired from the SREC at this time specifically. The answer is that, as Russ Duerstine noted in the Rules Committee today, sometimes things hit Friday afternoon while the SREC is in committee. This is one of those issues. It was announced today that a meeting has been called of the State House Republican Caucus for this Monday at 1pm, where they will be given presentations on this topic and then asked to vote on a position of the House GOP Caucus. While all of us would hope th .. ...

House Speaker Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, sent letters Thursday to 14 gun manufacturers suggesting they should relocate. The companies are in Colorado, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and North Carolina. “I am personally inviting you and your company to come to the great state of Mississippi,” Gunn wrote in a letter to Colt’s Manufacturing Co. “In our state, you will not be criticized for providing good to the law abiding citizens who enjoy hunting, shooting or who just want the peace of mind that comes with the constitutional right to protect their families.” Leaders from other states have sent letters to some or all of the companies asking them to come to their homes.

All Three Senators Who Voted Against John Kerry Are Pro-Keystone XL, Anti-Science, Climate Deniers Repost This Comment on this StoryEmail this story The U.S. Senate overwhelmingly approved the nomination of Sen. John Kerry as the new Secretary of State, by a vote of 94-3. The three "no" votes were cast by infamous climate denier James Inhofe (R-OK), and two anti-environment Texas Republicans, John Cornyn and Ted Cruz. All three Republican Senators, Cornyn, Cruz and Inhofe signed the letter to President Obama last week calling for the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, which would lead to the expansion of the Alberta tar sands, one of the dirtiest megaprojects on earth. John Kerry is praised for his environmental record as a Senator, and he's widely anticipated to uphold his leadership role on climate change issues as Secretary of State. During his confirmation hearings, Kerry promised to make climate change a top priority at State. "I will be a passionate advocate about this, but not based on ideology ...

Obama prepares for immigration bill push - USA Today White House aides say a comprehensive immigration reform plan is on the agenda as the Obama administration's "next big political project," but it has to wait until the fiscal cliff crisis is resolved.

THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF LABOR By: Patrick J. Buchanan In 1958, Senate Minority Leader William Knowland, his eye on the 1960 GOP nomination coveted by fellow Californian Richard Nixon, went home and declared for governor. Knowland’s plan: Ride to victory on the back of Proposition 18, the initiative to make right-to-work the law in the Golden Land. Prop. 18 was rejected 2 to 1. Knowland’s career was over, and the Republicans were decimated nationally for backing right-to-work. Badly burned, the party for years ran away from the issue. This history makes what happened in Michigan, cradle of the United Auto Workers, astonishing. A GOP legislature passed and Gov. Rick Snyder signed a right-to-work law as libertarian as any in Red State America. The closed shop, where a worker must belong to the union before being hired, is dead. The union shop, where an individual must join the union once hired, is dead. The agency shop, where a worker cannot be made to join a union but can be required to pay dues if the ...

There are no moderates. Not anymore. There is a left and a right and those who say they are moderates are surrendering to the left. Like a famous man from Texas once said; “you’re either with us or against us.” Some people just don’t want to accept the truth because they just can’t believe that it could happen here. Some may eventually see the truth. But, it will only happen when it directly affects them and they are unable to rationalize or shift blame elsewhere. A normal person when faced with indisputable evidence will capitulate to the truth. This is not the case for many on the left. They are so convinced they are doing the right thing that facts no longer matter. The republicans in Washington must be and act like conservatives. If they don’t they must go, period. If we are unable to do this then a third party is the only option. The timing is better than it has been for the last one hundred years. What have we got to lose? After eight years of Obama almost everyone will be ready for a ch ...
