Fighting for Transparency & Fiscal Responsibility in Local Government

Trump Budget Proves the Market Works

Posted by |

President Trump released his proposed budget last week, and within a week his budget has proven the markets work and Americans are a generous people.

While Trump’s proposed budget increased spending on things like the military, it also reduced the budgets for many non-governmental spending programs, such as Meal on Wheels. The left tells us that organizations like Meals on Wheels would not exist were it not for government funding. The left also maintains that government funding of non profits is noble and somehow charity.

Well since Trump’s proposed budget cut, Meals on Wheels has reported an increase in private contributions – actual charity –  of 50 fold! (5,000%). On top of that, their volunteer signups – people offering to help the organization for free – has increased 500% according to a Meals on Wheels spokesperson.

This is GREAT NEWS.

These numbers prove the left is wrong once again. These numbers prove Americans are a very generous people. These numbers are the face of actual charity. Well done my fellow Americans. May Trump continue to slash tax funding for non-profits and allow citizens to exercise charity.

Texas Stalls on Stopping Voter Fraud

Posted by |

In 2014, a Texas judge blocked former State Rep. Lon Burnam from viewing suspicious applications and ballot envelopes he claimed led to his re-election defeat.  Burnam alleged that hundreds of applications for ballot-by-mail were submitted with fraudulent electronic signatures.

The use of electronic signatures is a preferred tool of illegal vote-harvesters.  It allows them to capture hundreds of signatures on iPads under the guise of a fake “petition drive,” unrelated to any candidate election.  Then they digitally insert those signatures onto ballot by mail applications year after year, which are then faxed into the local county elections office.

Twist in General Paxton’s Case

Posted by |

The case against Attorney General Ken Paxton is complicated and nebulous at best.

The circumstances around the case are outright shady.

One of the questionable issues surrounding the case is the arrangement made with the special prosecutors just prior to Judge Oldner recusing himself from the case. Oldner entered into a pay structure agreement which is way beyond the Collin County rates, potentially leaving taxpayers on the hook for millions of dollars.

A Collin County taxpayer has sued challenging the ability to pay beyond the County’s rates, and this week the 5th Court of Appeals issued a stay in any further invoices to the special prosecutors pending the challenge to the pay structure.

This is a good thing for Collin County taxpayers. This is a good thing for process.
