Let’s sum up the state of America’s military brass with one appalling comparison between how the admirals, generals, and civilian leaders chose to treat two different service members. And right now, military veterans are refusing to recommend that young people join.
"Despite economic pressures that are evident across the country, Texas employers grew jobs at the fastest rate in the nation the past 12 months.

Greg Abbott.

As a former Chief of Staff at the U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services (HHS,) Rep. Brian Harrison has filed House Bill 1023 in Austin after the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) – unbeknownst to HHS leadership which oversees the FDA – recently went against HHS's specified instruction and created a new regulatory barrier requiring laboratories to seek FDA approval prior to testing for COVID-19. This illegal regulatory overreach effectively banned COVID-19 testing in the crucial early days of the pandemic.
Over the last year, the importance of "Parental Rights" has captured the attention of the country, has galvanized parents, inspired lawmakers, and decided the outcome of important campaigns during November's elections. To further the effort in Texas, State Representative James Frank has filed HJR 58 – an amendment to the Texas Constitution – to help protect the right of Texas parents to raise their children, and he says it will be the Family Freedom Project’s top priority in the 2023 Legislative Session.
“There've been recent reports that Non-Governmental Organizations may have assisted in illegal border crossings near El Paso. We further understand NGOs may be engaged in unlawfully orchestrating other crossings – through activities on both sides of the border – including in sectors other than El Paso. As a result, I am calling on the Texas Attorney General’s Office to investigate the role of NGOs in planning & facilitating the illegal transportation of illegal immigrants across our borders," said Gov. Greg Abbott earlier today.
Texas is currently experiencing the worst drought since 2011, and it's costing the Texas economy plenty – some $7.62 billion in agricultural losses, and nearly $17 billion in total. “With the population ballooning, and businesses booming, it comes as no surprise that Texas will need a lot of water to stay afloat,” said Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar. “And planning for Texas’ future water needs will require the dedication and resourcefulness of organizations and passionate individuals” in the upcoming 2023 Legislative Session.

Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) joined Ways & Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal and a bi-partisan group of Members of Congress from Texas to discuss solutions to replace the unfair "Windfall Elimination Provision" (WEP) with a fair, proportional formula that treats our Teachers, Firefighters & Police Officers just like the rest of America’s workers.
Whether it's some "non-binary" bondage mutant who oversees America's nuclear waste between bouts of luggage larceny, or an Army colonel who – and yeah, this happened – masks up in uniform as a leather sex puppy on social media ,and who along with junior officers also dressed as carnal canines that I guess would be an erotic litter... It is high time we no longer tolerate nuts as nuts.
Elon Musk’s “Twitter Files” – currently being released by Independent Journalists in a series of tweets – are shedding some detailed & sickening light on just how pervasively corrupt America’s intelligence agencies are... especially when it comes to acting on behalf of the Democrat Party & Joe Biden's Presidential Campaign. Their "collusion" has influenced the last two Presidential Elections, and instead of reporting on it the "Mainstream Media" have served as willing actors to amplify masses of "misinformation."
With the Holiday Season upon us, it's important to remember there are many Texas residents that may need a helping hand this winter. In this week’s column, I'd like to continue a discussion about helping others by sharing a few simple ways you can make a significant impact in the life of someone less fortunate this year. I have outlined some of the many giving opportunities available at some of Texas' Coastal Bend charities.

Attorney General Paxton filed a lawsuit today defending faith-based groups and the State of Texas from being forced to adopt woke political views that violate the religious liberty and moral conscience of faith-based organizations and limit Texas’s ability to help at-risk children.
Why are all these Democrats with Press Passes doing everything they can to downplay the "collusion" revelations coming out of Twitter? I’d bet dollars to donuts there’s a cabal of journalists who “turned in” to Twitter's Truth Police people THEY wanted quieted or shut down. And for people who claim to support "Free Speech" and inflate themselves as providers of "truth," being found out – or having THEIR emails exposed – is scaring the hell out of them.
