Clearing Up Confusion Over Abbott’s Order

Posted by |

There seems to be a great deal of confusion about what Governor Greg Abbott did earlier today.

In case you missed the left’s collective social media hissy fit, Gov. Abbott specified that mail-in ballots could be turned in to one location in each county during early voting.

It could have been worse for the left, Abbott could have completely rescinded an earlier proclamation and defaulted to the law which allows for mail ballots to 1) be mailed (hint: it’s in the name) or 2) be delivered in person on election day to the clerk’s office.

A plain reading of this first proclamation looks like what he’s allowing for today, a necessary clarification after hack liberal election officials in mainly in Houston and Austin set up a system to abuse the leeway granted by that order.

Specifically, they expanded the number of locations where ballots could be dropped off and accepting ballots in-person weeks before early voting is set to start.

Abbott gave an inch, and they took a mile. Now he’s correcting that disparity, and again, it could and should have arguably been worse.

Direct Action Texas is the only organization that’s been publicly calling for the curtailment of this provision.

Mail-in Ballot Fraud Charges in Gregg County

Posted by |

Yesterday, Attorney General Ken Paxton announced the arrest of four suspects in connection to a mail-in ballot fraud operation.

Gregg County Commissioner Shannon Brown along with Marlena Jackson, Charlie Burns, and DeWayne Ward stand accused of cheating in the 2018 Democrat Primary by falsifying mail-in ballot applications and ballots.

Direct Action Texas has worked with local activists in Gregg County since 2018 to address mail-in ballot fraud, and specifically felonous claims of disability on mail-in ballot applications.

Blue Wave of Litigation

Posted by |

The blue wave, bandied about in reference to winning elections in 2020, might more accurately refer to the tsunami of lawsuits filed by leftists to try and manufacture a favorable electoral outcome in November.

As predicted, Texas Democrats have fired up the lawsuit machine following the primary run-off ahead of the November election.

Last week two voters and civil rights groups sued the state of Texas to enforce rules that may not be needed in November.

One of the practices that the lawsuit seeks to expand is curbside voting. During the 2019 legislative session, there were attempts to expand this practice that failed.

As was the case with expanding mail-in balloting for the primary election, altering curbside voting without debate and votes from duly elected representatives of the people should be shunned.

This is yet another power grab masquerading as good governance and like the many other lawsuits filed by Democrats this election cycle, thrown out.

Hybrid GOP Convention > 100% Digital Option

Posted by |

Monday it was rumored and yesterday it was reported, that the Texas Republican Party is considering a change of venue for its state convention.

On Thursday, the State Republican Executive Committee will meet via conference call to weigh options, including keeping the in-person date in Houston, relocation, or transitioning to an all-virtual convention.

In these considerations, one thing is certain, the SREC should not face a binary choice between in-person or virtual-only when it comes to facilitating the biannual gathering.

There should be a third option on the table.

Left Crafts Crude Electoral Shiv

Posted by |

The left is fashioning a shiv to fatally undermine trust in elections. In part, the plan involves lowering expectations ahead of November.

After months of calling for drastic changes to how elections are run, the left is now “prepping” Americans for delayed results.

This messaging is being peddled as a public service, but it’s anything but helpful to suggest delays in results are inevitable or to ignore the fact that this messaging will be used to call for additional destabilizing 11th-hour changes.

Narratives with manipulated visions about how the election will play out serve multiple nefarious aims, let’s take them in turn.
