Letters to the Editors – 3/4/2018

The Texas Railroad Commission race just took a left turn into the SWAMP. When an Establishment Incumbent is being challenged, the Swamp cries like a baby, lies and distorts reality to confuse and coerce voters to their wicked way. When an Establishment Incumbent is being challenged, the Swamp cries like a baby, lies and distorts reality to confuse and coerce voters to their wicked way. The Establishment Incumbent just resorted to New York-style campaigning that includes lies and distortions of the truth about her formidable opponent.  This is Texas and Texans believe in honorable behavior in the face of competition. …


Let the Voting Begin in Bexar County

As early voting starts this past Tuesday for the 2018 primary election, the electrifying news in the political arena is the case of Texas Senator Carlos Uresti, Don of the San Antonio-based Uresti Family. On Thursday the jury found Uresti guilty on multiple felony counts. While Uresti’s term extends to 2020, if the  felony charges hold up, he could be facing millions in fines, the loss of his state senate seat, and prison time which could spill into the next century. Lt. Gov. Patrick, president of the Texas Senate has stripped Uresti of his committee assignments. Uresti was vice chair…


LULAC versus America?

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is immersed in a controversy, largely ignored by the local news media, with long term consequences for liberty and economic prosperity.  With almost 145,000 members and chapters across the country, LULAC claims to be the nation’s largest and oldest civil rights organization. It was founded by military veterans with the aim of integrating Hispanics, primarily Mexican Americans into the American middle class. For the most part LULAC focused on education and avoided the excesses and polarization of the left leaning civil rights movement of the 1960’s.  LULAC’s early leaders were traditional American…


Trump-O-Mania

Trump-o-Mania is a new but very rare disease that turns the mind into a dishonest bowl of rancid mush. Effecting only Democrats and the liberal media, Trump-O-Mania became epidemic with Donald  Trump’s unthinkable victory. The dishonest element of Trump-O-Mania first appeared when Hillary together with Debbie Wasserman Schultz, aka blabber mouth, illegally stole the Democratic Party nomination from socialist Bernie Sanders. During the presidential election the main stream media revealed their strain of Trump-O-Mania when they shielded her disastrous performance as Secretary of State, including her role in abetting the Benghazi murders. And thanks to James Comey’s case of Trump-O-Mania,…


Obama Economic Advisor Skeptical of Growth Projections

On Wednesday the White House released the annual Economic Report of the President. No surprise, Democrats like Jason Furman, who served as the top economic adviser in the Obama White House, say President Trump’s economic forecasts are much too optimistic. Mr. Trump says that his tax cuts and deregulation will restore robust growth and Mr. Furman calls the Trump growth estimates “absurd.” The national press corps, which spends a good deal of time cataloging every inaccurate statement from Mr. Trump, may be particularly receptive to the Furman message. But as they dig into this issue, they ought to give some credit…


Feisty Tejana Takes On Will Hurd

Meet Dr. Alma Arredondo-Lynch, a fifth generation Tejana who is challenging U.S. Representative Will Hurd for the District 23 seat. In a phone interview she said “I’m a constitutional conservative, a Christian and I’m running to restore traditional family values and the rule of law,  values our District 23 embody. After watching the long list of anti-Republican Party platform votes from the incumbent, it was impossible for me to remain silent. Dr. Alma Arredondo-Lynch (Dr. Alma for short) grew up as a poor Tejana migrant farm worker. She was born and raised in Texas and lived in the state her…


The Tragedy of Embracing LGBT Ideology: A Mother’s Cautionary Tale

Rev. Pierre Bynum, Chaplain & National Prayer Director for the Family Research Council, published a prayer alert last week which contained the following heartbreaking letter from the mother of a girl who fell victim to militant LGBT advocacy.  This story, which is becoming increasingly common in America, is the direct consequence of misfeasance by government officials and health care professionals who lack the courage to stand up to the LGBT lobby and instead lend their support to leftist extremism. My daughter, [name withheld], at age 14, spontaneously decided she is actually a male (suffering from a condition coined, “Rapid Onset…


Quick Bytes 2/17/2018

2/16/2018 George Soros is pumping money into the Bexar County Democratic DA primary race – Wake up San Antonio and Bexar County! Noted anti-American leftist George Soros has indicated how important the LGBT and Sanctuary Cities movements are to him and his supporters by financially backing progressive/leftist Joe Gonzales for Bexar County district attorney in the Democratic primary. Soros has donated just under $70,000 to back Gonzales in his Democrat primary challenge to Bexar County District Attorney Nicholas LaHood. LaHood is a Democrat but opposes sanctuary cities and said he supports Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s crackdown on cities that defy…


“I Realize the Swamp is the Problem”

Gilbert Garcia writes a column for the  San Antonio Express New (SAEN), the daily news monopoly in San Antonio.  Garcia often covers politics. He dedicated his article on January 25th to Robert Stovall’s candidacy for the seat of U.S. Representative Lamar Smith, long-time congressman representing Bexar County’s  District 21. Now, talk about a swamp! There are 22 candidates scrambling to win this choice seat in Washington – eighteen Republicans and four Democrats. Garcia quotes from Stovall’s video ad: “In the 30-second video, Stovall stands knee-deep in the middle of a swamp, wearing fishing waders and a white ‘Make America Great…


San Antonio Water System: Fraud Upon Fraud

Corruption and insider deals are a constant threat to good government and public administration.  Our founding fathers were keenly aware that officials charged with spending the public purse would often rely on the advice of friends and contributors to direct public dollars, and the temptation to fund projects that benefit either themselves or their friends would be irresistible to many. The founders responded by placing strong limits on the scope and role of government.  Those limits have long since been eroded, to the point that, even in Texas, state and local governments are often the largest market for services and…
