Statement on the Lone Star Agenda

Posted by |

Over the last week, conservative leaders and organizations across the state have been endorsing the Lone Star Agenda (the Agenda), a slate of issues that were not adequately addressed during the 2019 legislative session.

In fact, issues included in the agenda have not been prioritized or meaningfully addressed over the past several sessions. It’s due to this prolonged absence of activity that following the session, many in the grassroots appeared dejected and penned editorials swearing off political activity. This effort is aimed at stemming that tide and appears to be a step in that direction.

Non-citizens votes = real meddling

Posted by |

Headed into 2020, as has been the case since 2016, Americans are going to be confronted with the term meddling. Most likely, claims of meddling will be followed by a boogeyman, maybe a Russian or an anonymous political consultant.

In any case, these receptacles for liberal ire are false targets. Real meddling that could affect the outcome of the 2020 election will come from vote harvesters and illegally registered voters canceling the votes of citizens.

Recently, Jimmy Carter challenged the legitimacy of President Donald Trump’s 2016 election, claiming he would not be in the White House without Russian interference. This, of course, is the same narrative that the left has been trying to make a stick for three years running.

The false narrative, in order to survive, begs observers to believe that a handful of Russians behind computer screens with a meager budget swung an election in which hundreds of millions were spent and in which thousands of Americans took an active role. Only kool-aide drinking leftists are lining up, checking their brains at the door and selling out for this false reality.
