November 6th Election: Just the Facts, Ma’am

By any measure this midterm election does not fit into anyone’s familiar experience with voters during a non-presidential election. Let’s just keep this commentary to the point, stay with the facts and, with your indulgence, dear readers, allow this writer to take another shot at convincing you to support some important local initiatives when you vote tomorrow. As of the end of early voting last Friday evening, 4,884,528 Texans voted during the two week early voting period in this 2018…

“Birthright” Babies Outnumbered Births in 16 States

Though births by illegal aliens are, by definition, difficult to quantify with exactitude, recent research estimates that 297,000 “birthright babies” were born in this country in 2014 (the latest year for which reliable census data was available). Putting those 297,000 births in perspective, an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies found: Births to illegals exceeded the total number of births in any state other than California and Texas.

Vote “FOR” City Charter Amendment “A”

Dear Christian Who Votes The Bible: I encourage you to vote “FOR” City Charter Amendment “A” in the November 6 election. If Amendment “A” passes, it will give a realistic opportunity to undo the 2013 “Bathroom Bill” (aka Non-Discrimination Ordinance) passed by City Council even though citizens seated in Council Chambers opposed the ordinance by more than six to one! I led a referendum effort that would have required City Council to rescind their action or else put it on a ballot for the citizens to vote. We had to collect 61,045 petition signatures in 40 days.  That is very…

Quick Bytes – 10/31/2018

10/29/2018 SAPF Chief Sides with Congressman Castro San Antonio Police Chief William McManus has sided with Democrat Congressman Castro regarding patrolling near voting polls. Rather than questioning why law enforcement officers doing routine patrols near voting polls was a problem for Cong. Joaquin Castro, Chief McManus has politicized the matter even further. In a directive from SAPD Asst. Chief James Flavin dated today, Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018, SAPD officers citywide are told to stand down and “refrain from patrolling through or parking in close proximity to polling locations in the City.” Why? SA Police Officer Association president, Mike Helle, released…
