Why Inflation Didn’t Matter Enough In Midterms

Sunday, November 13th, 2022

Most of us who look around at the economic conditions in the country woke up scratching our heads at the outcome of the election.  Under these economic conditions, how could voters fail to reject the party that has created the catastrophe of inflation, skyrocketing energy prices, and mounting food prices?  This question seems vexing at first, but it’s really not so difficult to understand.  Democrats are professionals at stealing elections, but they’re also professionals when it comes to setting a legislative agenda that will later backstop their political aims.  Democrats knew what they were going to do, as far back as the beginning of the pandemic, and what they’ve been doing since was designed to carry it into effect.  They’re diabolical, and with respect to inflation, they knew full well what they were going to do.  Inflation didn’t matter in this election to their voters.  Why?  The reason your red wave became a trickle is because Democrat’s constituencies scarcely feel it, at least to the scale working Americans have been feeling it.  Democrats undertook a plan to drive inflation while insulating the bulk of their own voters from it.

Borrowing new money into existence is how one goes about making inflation.  As Milton Friedman taught us, systemic “inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon.”  If one wants to create inflation, one need only increase the money supply without a corresponding increase to the value of the whole system.  Democrats knew this.  They printed more money into existence in the period of the so-called “pandemic” than any other period in our history. To add to this, what they did was focus the end-point for much of this cash into the pockets of their voters.  Starting in the Fall of 2020, they increased payments in programs such as SNAP(our modernized food-stamps program) by percentages in no way justified by market conditions at the time. A twenty-five percent increase in SNAP before the onset of significant inflation helped create that inflation, but more than this, what it did was to indemnify Democrats’ key demographics against the policies that Blue States and the Democrat Congress were imposing on the rest of us.

To get a red wave, in this environment of constant Democrat chicanery, you cannot possibly win when all of their key constituencies are being made whole by COLA increases and so on.  Democrats rely on the dependent folks to swell to the polls in election after election, and they’re quick to remind them who got them the loot. Think of it. We know that roughly half of Americans get a government check directly.  Still more are on the government teat somewhat indirectly.  The entire education establishment from college to kindergarten is heavily latched-onto the government teat. This isn’t rocket science.  If you want to know why Democrats could manage to win in this catastrophic economic condition, you need only realize that to a large degree, their voters aren’t feeling it.

Do you see it now?

Our Democracy Is NOT on the Ballot

Monday, November 7th, 2022

Democracy is not on the ballot. America is.

Tomorrow is election day.  There are many candidates and issues on ballots all across the country.  The leftists in media have been haranguing Americans with the notion that “our Democracy is on the ballot.”  They’re lying, and their lies are extensive.  What you must know going into tomorrow’s election is that among all the things on the ballot tomorrow, “our Democracy” is nowhere among them.  There are many reasons this is true, but chief among them, apart from all the other dire foolishness, is that the only “democracy” on the ballot is a fake, contrived notion of government that very few Americans actually accept.  The reason for this is simple:  We don’t have a democracy.  Our nation is a constitutional, representative republic.  This means our laws are published and known or knowable in advance of any controversy for all to understand.  This means we don’t live under a fiat rule or governance, where laws can be changed at the sheer whim of our rulers.  It also means that on the federal level, voters do not vote for legislation of any sort.  Ever.  We elect Representatives and Senators who go to Washington DC with at least a general set of instructions given them by the people who elected them in their home districts and states.  We don’t directly elect our President either, nor do we have a direct say in the nomination or appointment of our federal judiciary.  We have elected office-holders who participate in that process with our advice and our consent via our votes for them.   We do not have a democracy, and our founders were clear on this point, in Article IV, Section 4, in which the Constitution guarantees to the states a “republican form of government.”  This means that our fundamental rights are never to be subject to the vote of the people, and that the several states retain sovereign control over the union thereby constituted.  This is critical to understand, because when they say “our democracy is on the ballot,” there is no such creature in our system, but that’s not to say they don’t want it to be.  Democracy is almost always the forerunner to some sort of tyranny.  When they say “our democracy,” they are not speaking about our current form of government, but instead the bastardized catastrophe they hope to trick you into accepting.  It is time to reject their offer, veiled in egregious lies and deception.

When these duplicitous monsters talk about their “democracy,” you may have noticed that you’re not included in it.  They don’t want your involvement in the governance of our country, or even your households.  Instead, what they desire is a form of government in which all such decisions are left to them.  The “democracy” they want is merely a superficial instrument to be used to steal from you your sovereignty over your own lives.  One clear example of this is the so-called “Green New Deal,” which is merely another contrivance intended to provide them more control.  First, they concoct a crisis, in this instance, the “climate crisis,” for which they naturally have a solution.  Of what does such a solution consist? Their solution consists entirely of wrecking your standard of living.  Their goal for two generations has been to mis-educate your children into the belief that the climate crisis was real, and that people are its proximal cause.  At the same time, by this mis-education program, they have undertaken an effort to leave most of your children without the intellectual means or moral courage to question any of it.  Innocently in many cases, you thought you had been paying taxes to fund the schools to educate your children, but in fact, your exertions have been turned against you, and what you’ve been funding is a machine bent to the purpose of indoctrinating your children with an anti-ideology to which you’re not only opposed, but also condemn outright.  As this was done, your children were likewise taught to condemn you.

Climate is just one of many issues they’ve used to dissolve the bonds of family. In point of fact, any significant issue you might choose to examine will exhibit similar patterns. The people who’ve done this are not just the enemies of your family, but the enemies of our country.  What they will not tell you about what’s really on the ballot as you choose your candidates and make decisions on various ballot initiatives, bond issues, and states’ constitutional amendments is that America as you’ve known it, and as you knew it in your youth, has been placed there for elimination.  Your constitutional, representative republic is on the ballot.  The future of your children is on the ballot.  The maniacs in various states want to mandate COVID vaccines for your children, despite the intense threat to their health. If you permit these people to remain in office, they will destroy us all.  That’s because when they speak of “our democracy,”  you’re not going to be part of it.  It’s their democracy, not ours.

The other thing they’re keen to accomplish during this election cycle is to prevent you from learning before the polls close tomorrow evening how catastrophic will be the fruits of their rule.  If you think you’ve seen the worst of their economy, you’re quite wrong.  The worst is still coming, and they’re hiding it from you so you’ll be unaware as you head to the polls.  How does “Global Societal Collapse” grab you?  Naturally, they will be just fine.  You?  I regret to inform you that they simply don’t give a damn about that.  As I said, you’re not part of their democracy.  It’s time to call everybody in your contacts, talk to all your neighbors, and make certain that they at least know what’s at stake tomorrow.  It won’t be an easy recovery, because the collapse is not nearly finished, but armed with the truth, you can at least begin to hold those responsible to account tomorrow at the polls.  Our time is running out.  “Our Democracy” is not at stake tomorrow.

America is.

Biden’s America: A Shit-Hole Country

Thursday, October 13th, 2022

It took them less than two years…

Back in 2018, when President Donald Trump used the term “shit-hole countries” to describe Haiti and a number of other nations around the world, the left descended upon him like a cloud of flies to a San Francisco sidewalk, circa 2022.  Unkind though it may have been, it was a brutally honest description of the conditions in those nations. Most of them are impoverished, and most of them are made all the more poverty-stricken by the uncontested, unrepentant corruption that thrives in these countries.  Often, despotism looms large, and in many ways, is the underlying cause of the nations languishing in that state.  Moral degeneracy of the country’s leadership sets the stage for the sort of necessary cultural decline to descend into these conditions.  The signs of a “shit-hole country” are easy to spot, but now, just four years later, and barely two years into Joe Biden’s administration of our federal government, if you look around America, all the signs are now evident here.  It didn’t take long under the sort of electoral corruption we’ve seen.  It didn’t take long with a demented, compromised, corrupt old man standing as the puppet for even more disgraceful people. Behold, the horrors: America has become a full-bore shit-hole country, and the only remaining question is whether we will permit this to become a permanent condition.

One of the characteristics most detestable about shit-hole countries is the corruption of any democratic processes enshrined in such law as they may have.  Votes are purchased, ballot-boxes are stuffed, ineligible peoples are permitted(often forced) to vote, and the election is rife with bribery and quid pro quo of every description.  There is no relief to be had at the bar of justice, because justice has been vanquished either by bribery, or extortion, or threats of violence and murder.  Law enforcement agents are paid not to see criminality, and to find criminality solely among those who displease those in power. Nothing converts a thriving nation into a shit-hole country faster than the demolition of the rule of law, the corruption of justice, and the gaming of its electoral processes.

In shit-hole countries, criminals are used as tools of those in power, to terrorize the populace and keep them too busy struggling to survive while protecting such property as they may own from the racketeers and criminals who thrive under corrupt governance.  There’s little time to “fight city hall” when you’re too busy protecting your wife or daughter from rapists running wild, or your children from predators of every description, or even your own neck from every form of bandit, thug and psychopath who’s been loosed upon the society.  Shit-hole countries imprison people for the sake of politics alone, using incarceration to punish their political foes, but instead using real criminals as weapons against their political rivals and anybody else who might challenge their power.

Inflation, often hyperinflation, is a feature of shit-hole countries.  This is because money-printing and poor fiscal and monetary policies tend to serve the looting criminals who corrupt these governments to their own purposes.  They accrue new debt for which their citizens will be compelled to pay, for every trendy social program of which they learn at the latest UN-sponsored conference or meeting; they involve their nations in unnecessary military adventurism, and generally use the treasury of their countries as their own personal loot to pay off henchmen, political friends, and their various enforcers, buying-off all those not already sympathetic or subservient to their aims. Even now, the Producer Price Index, reflecting the costs producers face, has soared higher yet again.  This will force prices higher for consumers.  The inflation isn’t over for America, and in fact, it’s just begun.

Garbage and human waste are features of a shit-hole country.  This is because despite all their lip-service to the poor and downtrodden, they never allocate many resources and virtually no effort to it.  Instead, these sorts of things become the cover for money-laundering in which cash is delivered from the treasury to various organizations who mostly do political work, advocacy, and racketeering, all under the guise of various humanitarian efforts.  It’s all a scam of course, much like BLM has been demonstrably shown to have been, but this is the basic way in which humanitarianism is done.  It’s mostly an exercise in graft, corruption, and fraud.  What’s the point of our “assistance” to Ukraine?  Do you think that money is going to actually help people? How much of it is buying Zelensky’s latest mansion in the Mediterranean basin?

Education, to the degree it exists, is an indoctrination camp in shit-hole countries, where faculty and administration exist solely to keep their jobs and do the bidding of the ruling political class and whatever fads become popular in the ruling class.  Schools become campuses overrun by abuse of children under the guise of education, and the will of parents is completely ignored.  In the worst of shit-hole nations, parents cannot even remove their children from government-run schools, either to private or religious schools, or to some form of home-schooling.  We have a growing number of advocates for this sort of educational dictatorship even now in America, and as we saw in the case of parents raising Hell at school boards over Critical Race Theory, the educational establishment, the political administration, and law enforcement all collude and coordinate a response to suppress dissent.  Yes, we truly have become a shit-hole nation, even and particularly in education.

Shit-hole countries do everything possible to deprive their citizenry of energy.  They wreck the infrastructure, and they wreck the means of deriving energy from such resources as may be available to them. Most shit-hole countries quickly find themselves to be an energy desert, because the political ruling class see it as an excellent opportunity to profit.  They rape and pillage and loot the energy sector, and soon, the nation finds itself with insufficient energy.  When you cannot light your neighborhoods at night, crime begins to escalate.

Speaking of crime, one of the things common in shit-hole countries is the legal disability to self-defense.  Firearms are often limited or banned outright, and the entire concept of self-defense is frequently rigged against the defender.  More, politics is often injected into the legal system, such that one’s ability to legally defend oneself or one’s family is entirely dependent upon one’s political standing with the regime at the time.  In recent years, we’ve seen an uptick in this very thing here in the United States, as people like workers in bodegas in New York who resort to lethal self-defense find themselves in jail, awaiting trial, unless public outcry forces the authorities to free them.  Now, at every turn, the anti-gun left(who is really the anti-self-defense left) are attempting to strip from you your right to keep and bear arms.  Even now, they’re plotting how to stall a number of cases from reaching the Supreme Court of the United States until they can figure out how to eliminate Clarence Thomas or one of the other conservatives.  The Ninth Circuit in California is playing this cynical game even now, hoping something will intervene to prevent them from ruling in accordance with currently controlling SCOTUS precedents.

Another common feature of shit-hole countries is that their leader is frequently a puppet controlled by one or more foreign or elite actors.  Very often, these people don’t have any substantial concern about the nation in question, and they have some local marionette playing the role of leader, all for the purpose of looting the country blind. Very often, these puppets can scarcely manage their own affairs, never mind those of a whole country, and yet they’re in the position of leadership because somebody else put them there for the purpose of carrying out a different, non-public agenda.  Great Reset, anybody?

Shit-hole countries don’t have effective borders. People come and go from their borders as readily as they desire.  Shit-hole countries are barely countries at all, but more, people are imported to support the shit-hole leaders. Immigration policy becomes a form of recruitment and conscription.  These recruits become the basis by which the native peoples are displaced and overwhelmed.  Look around America and you will see all the signs this is happening here.

This is where we’ve now arrived in 2022 America.  Thanks to Joe Biden and all the crooks who helped put him there, we live in a shit-hole country that’s becoming shittier by the day.  With each passing day, conditions in America are worsening, and the only remaining question is whether we’ll do a damned thing about it.  This coming election will show us a great deal.  How serious are we about self-governance?  How seriously do we take our civic duties?  To what lengths will we go to wrest control from the demons now running us rapidly into the ground.  I scarcely could have imagined this in 2018, when Trump first coined the term “shit-hole countries” to the raging displeasure of the media and the left(the same people.)  Now I’ve realized this was because a shit-hole nation is precisely what they intended for us.  Now we have it.  Will we settle for the shit-hole country they’ve created?  We must not.  I will not. The coming election may be our last opportunity to start this process peaceably.

Dirty Politics in Texas and Jeb’s Revenge on Trump

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022

Will Jeb have the last laugh At Texans’ Expense?

Texas is a state with Open Primaries. The rules are that we don’t register by party, and despite some efforts to change it, in election after election, RINOs exploit it to their benefit. Tuesday was the Texas Primary, and one race in particular raised my eyebrows. Incumbent Attorney General Ken Paxton received forty-two percent of the vote, with George P. Bush finishing second. This means there will be a run-off in May, the winner of which will move on to the General Election in November.  There’s been one candidate that Democrats and RINOs alike have been attacking like crazy, for years, since he started in office as Attorney General. It’s been non-stop with Democrats and their RINO henchmen cooking up charges and phony scandals to attack Ken Paxton since he first ran.  He wasn’t supposed to get in to begin with, but when he managed to get into the office, he actually did some very good things, and has been a fairly conservative AG.  The establishment RINOs have other plans, and his name is George P. Bush. Yes, son of Governor Bush. No, not the Texas Governor, Bush, who went on to be President, but the other Governor Bush, JEB, who was governor of Florida and failed miserably in his campaign for the presidency in 2016.  Somebody needs to tell President Trump, and somebody needs to get him the message: George P. Bush is the plant the RINOs will use to at least temporarily turn Texas “Blue” as they tried to do in 2020. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, what we’ve seen executed in the Texas Primary is the first big step in Jeb’s Revenge.

They knew they wouldn’t beat Paxton in a primary-day head-to-head race with George P. Bush.  Ken Paxton is far too well-liked among conservatives in Texas, and he’s actually taken a number of steps none of the Bush-o-philes in Austin would ever have done.  His filing of one suit after the next against the Federal government on issues of immigration, and his post-election attempted suit against Pennsylvania, joined by more than twenty other states, was a daring and bold move if John Roberts hadn’t owed his manhood to the DC establishment.  No, if they were going to defeat Paxton, they’d need to use a well-tested strategy that works well and best in an Open Primary state like Texas.  They would try to split the Paxton vote by entering a couple of people who’ve circled the establishment drain, stealthily, who they could use to attack and weaken Paxton while clearing the way for Bush.

Eva Guzman, part of the Abbott wing of the Texas Bush-o-phile establishment, was the first to be injected, in June of 2021. She resigned her seat on the Texas Supreme Court in order to do so, offering no explanation for her sudden resignation at the time.  Within a week, she had filed paperwork with the Texas Ethics Commission signifying her intent to seek the office of Texas Attorney General.  Louie Gohmert’s last minute entry(November 2021) into the race was the tip that polling had shown insiders that Eva Guzman would not, on her own, be enough to force the run-off. Gohmert is thought by many to be a solid conservative, but the former judge owed favors. Certain people needed Paxton removed as an obstacle to George P. Bush’s expected ascension to governor.

This gave George P. Bush a couple of advantages. In the first place, he could let the other two challengers play hammer, pounding on Paxton, particularly Louie Gohmert, who falsely showed himself on his campaign page with President Trump, indicating to the uninitiated and uninformed that he had the support of the former President.  That’s dirty, because of course, Paxton had secured President Trump’s endorsement months before.  Here’s Gohmert’s deceptive, corrupt use of President Trump’s image in likeness overlaid with “Louie Gohmert for Texas Attorney General” logos:

This is the video you would be greeted with upon surfing over to Gohmert’s website.  This is disgusting. I wonder if the former President is aware of how unscrupulous Gohmert has been in misrepresenting himself in this way.  This was frankly the thing that has caused me to lose all respect for Gohmert. He’s clearly portraying himself on this website as though he had Trump’s endorsement for the office of AG, which is a deception. Gohmert also ran nasty attack ads against Paxton, while accusing Paxton of running attack ads I’ve never seen.

I feel terribly for the Texans who were cheated of their votes by Guzman, Gohmert and Bush by this strategy, but it’s not over.  You see, despite receiving the most votes in the Primary, Attorney General Ken Paxton will now face a run-off with George P. Bush, and it’s a clean slate. Now it’s a winner-take-all affair. Bush, who didn’t need to spend too much campaign cash, since he had the two fakers doing his dirty work, will be flush with cash, and of course, the Bush machine can generate more cash in Texas than anybody else.  This will now become the political version of a smash-and-grab, and they will now use all available dirty tricks to overcome Paxton.  This is how the establishment RINOs play their dirty smash-mouth politics.  They used two also-rans to bloody-up Paxton with the sole purpose of making it easier for George P.

This is CRITICAL for Donald Trump, however, because if George P. Bush becomes Texas Attorney General, who will next face re-election in 2026 along with all the top state-wide offices, guess who he will be in a position, along with Abbott, to sabotage in 2024?  Yes, that’s right.  For the Trump Train, this is a five-alarm fire. In 2020, Abbott could afford to sabotage Trump because he wasn’t up that year. None of the state-wide office holders were. So it would be easy to help rig the election for Democrat Joe Biden because for Abbott, he had nothing at stake. People like to talk about Trump’s four-dimensional chess and all that nonsense, but he’d better master the board in Texas quickly, or they’re going to submarine his ass in 2024. Why wouldn’t they?  Wouldn’t Jeb’s son delight in betraying Trump?  You bet.

In the longer run, it’s setting the stage for George P. Bush to become Abbott’s replacement before he goes off to run for President in 2028 or 2032. That’s the game, and if my fellow Texans want to be drilled in this way, stick around. The Bush family will lay a pipeline for you again, and it won’t involve any kind of lubricant Texans might have thought to expect.  This is the beginning of the next Bush Bum’s Rush to power. Paxton is to be their first victim, but he won’t be their last.  Donald Trump is the next target, should he run as many now expect in 2024. From the AG’s seat, Bush will be able to create havoc for Trump in the Presidential race.  Texans need to wake up before the Bush wing of the establishment runs over them again, just as they did in 1988 and afterward, tossing aside all the Reagan folk who’d been so strong in Texas, to be replaced by BushCo folk who will sing by the family hymnal.

I also expect some interference from Washington DC. Don’t be surprised when the crime family’s influence is used to wave around some cobbled-together BS story about Paxton come a week or two before the run-off, just in time to take hold, but too late to be debunked. They have friends everywhere, as they’ve shown, and while they got clobbered by Trump in 2016, they’ve learned now, and they know how to rig things.  Texans had better wake up and smell the coffee, or soon, they’ll be smelling Bush family BS again, maybe for decades to come. If George P. were to run for President in 2032, you won’t be rid of them until 2040! How long are you willing to let one family of sell-outs dominate your state and your country?

For my part, if George P. Bush manages to beat Paxton in the run-off, I will work my back-side off to defeat him in November, even if I have to get out and spend my evenings planting lawn-signs for the Democrats. It’s time for the Bush family dynasty to end, for good this time. We’re America, not Britain, and we don’t do royalty by birth.

As a related side-note, there are a few steps Republicans can take to stop these shenanigans. For one, we need a state constitutional amendment prohibiting any candidate in Texas from appearing in the same election cycle for more than one office. The more important measure is that we must convert Texas to a closed-primary state.  People should be required to choose a party and register as such to vote in a party primary. It’s like having a private club, but letting the public choose its officers. It’s preposterous, and nobody in their right mind would accept these terms in any other circumstance.  In Texas, once you’ve voted in the primary, you’re bound to that party’s ballot for any subsequent run-off.  Therefore, if you vote as a Democrat in the primary, you can’t go vote in a Republican run-off two months later.  The trick, however, is this: If YOU DIDN’T vote in the general primary for either party, you’re still eligible to vote in the run-off.

Does a voter have to vote in the general primary election in order to vote in a primary runoff election?

No. Section 11.001 of the Texas Election Code prescribes the specific qualifications necessary in order to vote in a Texas election. There is no requirement to have previously voted in the general primary election in order to participate in the subsequent primary runoff election. Therefore, if a qualified voter did not vote in the general primary election, they are still eligible to vote in the primary runoff election.

In this way, any number of actual Democrats who did not vote in Tuesday’s primary can show up and vote in the May run-off as Republicans. What this means is obvious, and it’s the reason Texas Republican voters had better wake up to how they’ve been played.  You must get this system under control, because it’s rigged for RINOs to defeat your conservative candidates every time if they have the resources to play the game. As long as they can manage to finish in the top two, the RINO can make it a one-on-one race letting the also-rans do damage to the chief opponent. That’s how the establishment has rigged this game in Texas, and if you don’t get with the program, in May, they’re going to steamroll you with another Bush, putting the Bush clan in the position to stymie Trump again in 2024.  Politics is a dirty, dirty, long game. The Bush family knows how to play it well. When he ran for Land Commissioner four years ago, I could see this coming.  I knew AG would be his next play. George P. Bush hasn’t even been practicing law. He wants to be your AG, so he can step up, and up.  That’s the Bush family plan. You’re the pawns. Ken Paxton is to be their first check-box on their hit parade.

Trump is next. They’re going to hit him in 2024 like you’ve never seen. They want to prevent him from having any influence over the future of the Republican Party.  What if he picks a VP with future prospects?  Wouldn’t that foul their plans? It just might, and so to avoid that possibility, they’re going to strike first with a well-positioned Texas AG who’s going to exact his low-energy father’s revenge. Hell, Jeb might run himself, in 2024. He’s just that arrogant, and if his son controls the AG’s office in Texas, imagine if Trump finds himself denied ballot access in the Lone Star State? The script almost writes itself.

West for Texas: Putting the Federal Government in its Box

Monday, February 21st, 2022

Allen West lays out his plan to make the Lone Star Shine

On Monday, President’s Day, I had the opportunity to attend former Congressman Allen West’s campaign stop in Belton, Texas, at Sendero Shooting Sports.  It was a decent crowd for a Monday holiday, and they were active and engaged with many important questions for the gubernatorial candidate, who was warmly received and repeatedly applauded by attendees.  Questions ranged across many issues, from education, school choice, and home-schooling, to the crisis at the border about which his incumbent rival, Governor Greg Abbott, has done scarcely little. West also served as the Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas, and among the first questions, he was asked by a prospective voter whether the rumor had been true: “Is it true that while you were the chairman of the Texas Republican Party, Governor Abbott wouldn’t even meet with you?”  The response was refreshing candor from a candidate: “That is a fact.” This highlights one of the problems in Texas politics: The Austin crowd, including Abbott, simply don’t care what the people of Texas want until there’s an election looming. Then what you get is a fan-dance of symbolism. Allen West isn’t interested in useless, symbolic gestures of leadership.

One such act by Governor Abbott has been the much-ballyhooed deployment of 500 National Guardsmen to the Mexican border, but what has that deployment accomplished? Has it stemmed the tide? Has it done anything to secure Texas? Texans know that we have around one-thousand miles of border with Mexico. If you split five-hundred guardsmen into two twelve hour shifts, that’s a man every fourth mile, but by the time you actually consider logistics and so on, this token force of 500 Guardsmen is inadequate by any measure.  As West pointed out at this event, Guardsmen are having problems being paid, and they’re insufficiently armed or otherwise equipped to carry out a mission, never mind the woeful lack of manpower.  West wryly noted that as was recently reported, Texas National Guardsmen are now discussing unionizing because of the ridiculous conditions under which they’ve been deployed.

West also pointed to the unwillingness of State officials in Texas to do much, always pointing at the Federal Government, while claiming powerlessness and impotence.  West scoffs at the notion that the Governor of Texas, or the state in its entirety, is powerless to intervene.  One measure discussed was the ability to deny operations to the Non-Governmental Organizations now aiding and abetting Biden’s corrupt administration of our borders and our immigration system.  Huge grants have been made to these NGOs, always aimed at letting them do the dirty work of human-trafficking. West advocates putting an end to this in Texas.

Many issues were discussed, including education, and this was another issue in which Federal government strings are attached to so much of the money sent by Washington DC to the states. West said that it’s time to put the Federal government back in it’s proper box, within the four sides of the limits placed by the US Constitution. He also went out of his way to point out that he supports the notion that the money should follow the students, but that the state mustn’t intrude in home-schooling, that works for so many, and frequently produces many of our best and brightest.  His notion is to give these tools to all Texans, rich and poor, one and all, so that we can improve the future of Texas. He scorned the Federal strings that require a portion of Federal educations dollars be spent on “Social-Emotional Education,” a new code-phrase for CRT and other nonsensical educational ideas.

It was a very engaged crowd, and West took many questions. It was an excellent event wherein voters could learn more about the candidate and his views, in order to assess his fitness for the office.  The candidate didn’t get the questions in advance, making for a lively round of frank talk on the issues.  What’s more, it’s clear that West has a good command of the issues facing Texas, and  it’s obvious that he’s developed a sensible plan to actually do something, rather than make empty promises and carry out official fan-dances in the manner of Governor Abbott.  It was absolutely refreshing, and if West is coming to your area, I’d definitely suggest you attend. We have had nearly three decades of talk from politicians in Austin.  It’s time we elect a person with actual military experience and an eye for the kind of tactics that work. He has legislative experience, having been a Congressman, and he also understands the importance of service, given his career in the US Army and his many deployments on our behalf.  I happily and unreservedly commend to you Allen West, a candidate for Governor of the Lone Star State, who is out to make that star shine!

You can learn more about his campaign here, including where future events will be happening near you!
