State Signs Off on Alamo Plan,
but Controversy Builds

WOAI Radio (San Antonio), by Jim Forsyth

Original Article

Posted By:Muguy, 9/14/2018 9:28:54 AM

The long range, $300 million plan to ´reimagine the Alamo´ is one step closer to becoming a reality today, as Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, whose office owns the Alamo, has signed off on the agreement approved by a citizens review committee, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports. The last signature needed to put the plan in motion is that of Mayor Nirenberg, and Bush is clearly hoping to prod the mayor into signing, releasing a photograph of the agreement with a ´sign here´ sticker over the place where the mayor signs his name.

Comments:
It is obvious that very little of the public´s concerns were considered. George P. Bush steamrolled this "reimagining" process and there are provisions which create ´historical´ and ´civic´ zones with control being given to UNESCO and the UNITED NATIONS to "monitor compliance" and to move the Cenotaph while using imminent domain to close three streets and take over private businesses across from the Alamo. The Mayor of San Antonio still has to sign off on this, and the Texas Legislature still has to provide funding for this $300 million ´plan´. This is not over yet.

Wonder how this nation would look had Sam Houston and his fellow Texians had yelled "Reimagine the Alamo!! Reimagine Goliad!!!"

"The State" did not sign off on this plan; George P. Bush signed off on it while turning a deaf ear to the protests of Texans.

I am so weary of the ersatz "conservatives" of the Bush family (You know, Muffy, of the Connecticut Bushes).

They are close friends of the Clintons and the obamas, etc. Ruling class elites, all. They care not one wit for "the basket of deplorables".

One thing for certain, The Libs on San Antonio City Council are all over ´reimagine the Alamo´. It is always the Libs that want to rewrite history to their liking, then indoctrinate our youth to the new lies. THAT single thing is why our Colleges/Universities are infested with Leftist Professors, it is how they are taking over America. Welcome to the ´reimagine the Alamo´ SCAM!

The House Freedom Caucus led a special order on the House floor on Wednesday night, urging Congress and the president to continue fighting for the border wall. Meadows said, “I rise to encourage my colleagues to stay in the fight to have the president deliver on a promise.” The House Freedom Caucus proposed an amendment to the proposed spending bill that would fund $5 billion in border wall funding and close asylum loopholes, ending “catch and release.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on Wednesday that he will sponsor a continuing resolution...

JoAnn Randall, a writer and rancher in Placid, a dot on the map 145 miles northwest of Austin in the geographical center of Texas, describes herself as a political independent. Randall and her husband, Bill, a blues and rock guitarist, vote in the Republican primaries in McCulloch County because that’s the only game in town. But, this past election, JoAnn Randall was smitten with Beto O’Rourke. “All you have to do is get in the presence of him and it’s contagious, especially if you’re a woman because he’s so danged good looking,” said Randall

A mailer sent by a non-profit group focusing on increasing voter registration is using an interesting tactic to get Texans to the polls. "Public records indicate that you are eligible to vote in 2018," begins The Voter Participation Center mailer. "Who you vote for is private, but whether or not you vote is public record."

Libertarian Senate candidate files FEC
complain against O´Rourke and CNN
for $10M over town hall

Libertarian Neal Dikeman filed an FEC complaint against Beto O’Rourke and CNN for $10 million, saying the network´s town hall on Thursday violates campaign contribution laws. The complaint filed Monday with the Federal Election Commission argues because Sen. Ted Cruz is not taking part, and O’Rourke is the sole participant, CNN cannot claim the event as a debate. Also, he said the hourlong format with O´Rourke is not typical news coverage given to other candidates. Dikeman said the single candidate town hall is an in-kind donation, which is a prohibited campaign contribution.

While Beto O´Rourke has dazzled Texas Democrats, and become a favorite of Hollywood and the national media, an in depth analysis by the non partisan Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas concludes there is one hurdle that the El Paso Congressman won´t be able to overcome in his effort to unseat Senator Ted Cruz, and that is the mathematics of defeat, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports. One key to O´Rourke´s potential success would be to pull Republican Texans, especially so called ´Never Trumpers´ into the O´Rourke column.

"Saturday Night Live" began its 44th season with a cold open that focused on last week´s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Portraying the judge was actor Matt Damon, who mimicked Kavanaugh´s forceful testimony defending himself against the accusations before Republican and Democratic senators. The skit included a lot of sniffing and talk of a "con job orchestrated by the Clintons and George Soros and Kathy Griffin and Mr. Ronan Sinatra,” “beautiful, creepy calendars," and beer.

In Texas, September 18 may be remembered as the day the Democratic Party´s plans of for a ´blue wave´ in the November elections broke and rolled back out to sea, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports. Republican Pete Flores, a retired Texas Parks and Wildlife Department game warden, stunned former Congressman Pete Gallego to win the District 19 State Senate seat which was vacated by convicted felon Carlos Uresti. A Republican has never won in the 19th District dating back to the creation of the district, which runs from Southeast San Antonio all the way to the Big Bend.

Its not over ´til its over, and State Rep. Lyle Larson (R-San Antonio) is making it clear that the battle over whether to move the Alamo Cenotaph is far from over, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports. In a letter to Mayor Ron Nirenberg, Larson hints that if the Alamo Master Plan continues to involve moving the Cenotaph from its location in front of the Alamo, state funding for the master plan may be in danger. "We would hate to see the Legislature´s financial commitment to the Alamo dissolve if the Cenotaph is moved," Larson writes bluntly. The Master Plan approved on Tuesday calls for moving the Cenotaph out of the

Vox dubbed her “the most buzzed-about first-term member of the House of Representatives,” and The Atlantic credited her with an “unusually transparent approach to public relations.” She’s a former Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer and a self-styled democratic socialist.

The federal government shutdown has presented a unique opportunity for President Donald Trump to clear out the deadwood in the federal bureaucracy, saving U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars in salaries, perks, and rented office space for people who aren´t doing anything productive. At the same time, Trump can get rid of dozens, possibly even hundreds of Deep State operatives in the government, handpicked by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for their loyalty to the Democratic Party, not their country or the law. These people leak like a screen door in a submarine, mainly to CNN and MSNBC, the twin headquarters

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin fretted Friday that many Americans would dismiss the news media as a "bunch of leftist liars" in the wake of the BuzzFeed News story called "not accurate" by special counsel Robert Mueller´s office. BuzzFeed set off a Washington firestorm on Thursday with its report that President Donald Trump had directed longtime lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. However, on Friday night, a spokesman for Mueller´s office said the report was "not accurate."

A near majority of Republicans do not have a favorable view of freshman Senator Willard “Mitt” Romney (R-UT), according to a PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll released on Thursday. The poll, conducted January 10-13, found 48% of “Republicans and conservative-leaning” have an “unfavorable” view Romney. Just 29% view Romney favorably while another 23% are “unsure” or “never heard” of him. Never Trumpers like Bill Kristol have said Romney is now the “leader of the Republican Resistance to” President Donald Trump, and the PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll again shows how unpopular of a label that is among Republicans.

Former White House political strategist Karl Rove warned Senate Republicans in a meeting this week not to become overly reliant on their conservative base as they head into what could be a tough 2020 presidential election. Rove, who served as former President George W.

Protesters among the Women’s March in Washington, DC, Saturday called for free abortions for all, President Trump’s children to be caged, and for Trump to “drop dead.” The left-wing protesters showed support for feminism, prostitution, transgender issues, and immigration. Many demonstrators also showed serious hatred for the president. “Make America Great Again, and Drop Dead!” one sign read. (Photo) One protester called for Trump’s children to be caged. Barron Trump is only 12 years old. (Photo) “Grab ’em by the patriarchy” one sign read. (Photo) In a video captured by Breitbart News, a woman says, “Everybody, I’m giving abortions. I

President Trump outlined a plan to end the government shutdown in a Saturday afternoon address, offering three years of legislative relief for 700,000 DACA recipients — including protection from deportation —and Temporary Protective Status awardees. He also offered $800 million in urgent humanitarian assistance, 75 new immigration teams to reduce the court backlog of 900,000 cases, which he called an ´impossible nightmare,´ in remarks from the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House.

Country music is the most American of musical idioms, alongside jazz. With a longer history than rock and roll or hip-hop, country has produced a powerful pantheon of memorable artists, albums, and songs. Growing up, I pretended not to like country music, even though it was the music I heard my dad listen to the most (while my mom turned me on to the incredible pop and rock of the ‘60s and ‘70s). Nowadays, I’ve shaken that youthful pretension and will admit to enjoying most types of country’s many subgenres. I also have to admit that compiling a list

Should you believe in a God? All the discord and vitriol in our culture boils down to how you would answer. Border walls, gay marriage, abortion, national defense, school choice -- where you stand on these issues and the myriad others comprising our daily tussle is for the most part defined by how you answer this question. Your answer, yeah or nay, draws a very hard line. The professional philosopher John G. Messerly begins with this question in his recent Salon piece, “Religion´s smart-people problem: The shaky intellectual foundations of absolute faith.”

If someone walks up to you and bangs a drum in your face, are you guilty of harassing the drummer? You might be if you’re white and wearing a MAGA hat. Just a day after rushing to judgment about a BuzzFeed story that claimed President Trump had instructed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress — a story Robert Mueller’s own office subsequently debunked, the blue-checkmark media elite had a new instant narrative to promote. It was a tale perfectly tailored to liberal biases: white Catholic teenagers in MAGA hats had harassed an old and frail Indian veteran during the March

Mueller, the wall impasse, the shutdown, the "postponement" of the SOTU – all are skirmishes in the undeclared war on President Trump waged by Democrats, the Deep State, and the compliant media. A decisive battle will be enjoined if Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies or resigns this year. Nothing scares the left more than the prospect of Trump filling another seat on the SCOTUS with a young, fire-breathing constitutionalist who would join with Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh to form a conservative bloc for the ages. Pelosi and Schumer are praying that Justice Ginsburg survives and remains on the bench until
