Unlike the black vote, which unfortunately still appears to be overwhelmingly monolithic, the Hispanic vote is not. And no where is this more apparent than the recent mayoral victory by an Hispanic Republican in a Southern Border city (well, almost) in Texas. It stunned the dems, who I’m surprised didn’t cry voter fraud because of it.

This is terrific and long overdue. States are finally getting smart – seeing the light, as it were. Red States are beginning to act like Red States – like free States again.
Finally following the lead of States like South Dakota and Florida, Governor Gregg Abbott has decided to once again be an intelligent conservative and open the State of Texas up completely. No more Covid restrictions. And worse, he’s has the audacity to allow individuals and businesses to decide if they wish to continue mask wearing and distancing – all on their own. Imagine that.
This, more than anything, will outrage the collectivist, one-size-fits-all left.

The Supreme Court punted on a clear cut State vs. State constitutional primary jurisdiction case, including all three of president Trump’s appointees. Once again, the only two interested in proceeding were Thomas and Alito.
Leftist social media, in other words all social media, are turning out to look more like Joseph Goebbels version of 1930’s media, and today’s platforms are beginning to more resemble the Volksempfänger propaganda radio.

Federal court to hear Texas GOP argument to throw out 127,000 drive-thru votes
A federal judge in Texas will hear a case brought by the state Republican Party seeking to have nearly 127,000 ballots disqualified in Harris County.
The emergency hearing will take place on Monday after Republicans sued to invalidate early ballots cast at drive-thru polling stations, which they say violate the U.S. Constitution. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen will preside over the hearing, Fox News reports.
Well this is new and certainly something that most would neither think or worry about. But it sure appears to be an ongoing problem and evidently feral hogs don’t practice social distancing.
from the Federalist:
Hog Hunting In The Time Of Coronavirus
In Texas, you can still hunt feral hogs despite the lockdowns. Just make sure you prepare like it’s the end of the world.
Preparing for a hog hunt is like preparing for the end of the world. You need a reliable rifle and ammunition, of course, but you also need a bunch of other stuff—a sidearm, maps, binoculars, compass, flashlight, knife, raingear, boots, food and water, two-way radios. Once you’re all geared up, you can’t help but think that if the end came, you’d be ready.
Well, if this doesn’t drive the already loony left even crazier, I don’t know what will.
Thank the Lord above for Texas Governor Greg Abbott and his latest “essential” activities guideline.
And may I add: Gregg Abbott for president, 2024. And now that conservative upstart Candace Owens has decided to enter into elected public service, may I be the first to suggest an Abbott/Owens GOP presidential ticket!!
Think that might drive the left over the edge?
from Western Journalism:
Texas Governor Designates Religious Services as ‘Essential’ Activities
In an executive order issued Tuesday, Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott listed religious services among the essential services that should continue amid the coronavirus epidemic
In the order, which addressed the “statewide continuity of essential services” during the pandemic, Abbott called for Texans “except where necessary to provide or obtain essential services, minimize social gatherings and minimize in-person contact with people who are not in the same household.”

I’ll give Donald Trump props for at least one thing. He has and still is causing the needle to move on some very important issues which would otherwise get little press.
Early on it was illegal immigration and building the wall. To his credit he brought that topic to the forefront. Then it was the Muslim/refugee issue. Again, he spearheaded the attention brought to the subject.
And now, thanks to The Donald’s recent debate declaration about shady electioneering, everyone is talking about voter fraud. And just like every other political topic, battle lines have been drawn.
The ones who are having the fraud perpetrated on them, the Republicans, are raising alarms all over the nation and the ones perpetrating the fraud, the Democrats, are saying its all much ado about nothing.
But then you go back, watch and listen to the two senior democrat operatives (and others) highlighted in James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas video, and anyone with a brain must conclude that these two will do and have already done anything to get Hillary elected.
The Government is touting 4.9% unemployment and the Federal Reserve thinks this is great. So great in fact that they are going to start raising interest rates. But this figure is – surprise, surprise – a lie. Let’s take a look at what it really is.
Want to see what our fabulous healthcare system, Obamacare, will look like soon? Just take a look at the British socialized, single payer system and the latest reports of rationing. This is what we have to look forward to.
A County in the state of Texas is not happy with a gun rights advocate who has written to them complaining about not being to carry his weapon in the county courthouse complex. They’ve evidently decided to make an example of him.

From 1791, when the Second Amendment was ratified (coincidentally my Twitter handle – @Ratifiedin1791) all the way through 1933, the federal government left us gun owners be.
But in 1934 it all began to change as progressive icon and bully, President Franklin D. Roosevelt pushed for and signed the first nationwide gun control legislation, the National Firearms Act. The law was an emotion-based knee-jerk reaction to attempt to halt the use of the “Tommy Gun” and sawed-off shotguns, etc. It levied a tax of $200 (over $2500 today) on the manufacture and sale of all guns. A national gun registry was also enacted.
Virtually every leftist president since then has tried to build on the success of Roosevelt, including Lyndon Johnson, Bill Clinton and of course, Barack Obama. A special shout out should go to the progressive republican president Nixon. The same waste of skin who took us off the gold standard also blessed us with the ATF in 1972.
If it hadn’t been for Reagan and George W. Bush at least slowing things down, guns might be outlawed by now.
States have been very concerned about Obama’s want to confiscate our guns since he was elected and his recent threats to further curb gun owners’ rights have prompted some of them to begin taking the bull by the horns and enacting their own pro-gun legislation. That darn Tenth Amendment. Someone should do something about that.
In June of last year Texas passed a state law giving teachers and students (21 and older with a concealed carry permit) the right to carry guns on campus, although the sweeping law was amended to allow Colleges Presidents to dictate which buildings could remain gun-free. Some pro-gun advocates actually called this positive break through a loss. Yes, it was a disappointment as the law was gutted to an extent, but the positive is that it even got this far.
