The Left´s Quest for Texas
FrontPage Magazine, by Daniel Greenfield

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 3/4/2013 8:35:40 AM

In 1960, Nixon beat Kennedy in California following up on Eisenhower’s decisive wins over Adlai Stevenson. (Snip) Texas, with the second largest number of electoral votes, a state which leaned Democrat around the same time that California learned Republican, has become the ace in the hole. And if the Democrats can turn Texas blue, then it may be a long time until we see a Republican in the White House.

He concludes the left can´t take Texas in this decade but they can eat up a lot of resources trying. He thinks the Obama campaign already did all the voter registration and community organizing in Texas there is to do during the campaign.

I think that to determine how the GOP will fare in Texas, or anywhere, in the future, one must take into account the fact that, with he GOP establishment´s insults to conservatives along with an avowed determination to move sharply left, with the desire to elect "winners", devoid of any principles, just "winners", which will turn into losers bigtime, without conservative support, I would not feel too secure right now if I were a republican.

The major cities in Texas are generally democrat, and have left leaning democrat governors. The border region is solidly democrat. Dead democrats have been voting in Texas ever since Johnson won a senat seat and more recently in many counties the illegals and/or non-citizens have won the right to vote, as long as the vote democrat. Hispanics are the new majority. I would give the republican party maybe another decade, or less to control Texas politics. As a nationl political party the republican party may be alread dead. It is certainly dying.

Houston is filled with people who fled Katrina and never went back to New Orleans.

As for NYers moving to Texas. Most are moving to Florida and turning that state bright blue.

If we can clean up the voter rolls we can keep our red states red. Otherwise we can say goodbye to America as we have known it.

Forget Texas. As long as the Big Repstablishment runs candidates like Dole, McCain, and Romney the Democrats will just keep winning and winning. Republicans like me have thrown in the towel on the GOP. It ain´t the Grand Old Party I used to know. After Hispanics become the majority population in this country Democrats will have a permanent lock on the government. They have had the notion instilled in them that Republicans hate the poor and love the rich. That Republicans are greedy white people that do everything to make rich people richer and that they want poor people to stay that way and that they will never vote for any Republican. Maybe they can´t take Texas in the next 10 years but in eleven years it is a done deal.

Is the quest for Texas by Obama´s minions going to bring in the 2,700 light tanks and 1.6 BILLION bullet stockpile put together by Homeland Security??? If not here then where will the Dept. of Homeland Security need that much armor and munitions right here in OUR homeland? Where are these vehicles going and why??? Are we expecting a public outcry and uprising when the country collapses under Obama rule and they need to put down any public protests or are these required to go around disarming the country State by State to take away the citizens weapons??? Just what is going on and why are there no comments from the Republican ´leaders´???

There are a heck of a lot of illegal aliens in Arizona, Florida, Georgia and Texas. The liberal Democrats consider illegal aliens to be a vast new prospective liberal Democrat constituency group in the years ahead. That´s why Obama and the liberal Democrats are pushing an amnesty connected to a special path to citizenship, code for US voting rights, for just about every illegal alien now in the USA, a population group thought to be somewhere between 11 and 20 million people.

If the Republicans allow any sort of amnesty that triggers a special path to citizenship for that many would be legalized aliens, they will eventually be handing the liberal Democrats about 10 million new foreign born voters within the next few years. Numbers like that would permanently flip Arizona, Florida, Georgia and Texas into the liberal Democrat column. With that many new voters, the liberal Democrats would quickly send the Republicans into a long-term downhill slide into political oblivion.

All you have to do is look at the potential new voter numbers to figure that out. Remember most illegal aliens are poor generally uneducated people who once given eligibility to qualify for US social welfare safety net benefits and services will apply in massive numbers, liberal Democrat community organizing will see to that. Since the liberal Democrats fully support the expansion of such benefits and services while conservative Republicans generally do not, it is easy to see who the illegal alien population will be voting for once granted US voting rights.

No surprise that the intel guys, like their political bosses, reassured themselves that Russia wouldn’t invade. Even though they made the same mistake just a few years ago when the morsel was Georgia. Indeed, that kind of error, revolving around the phrase “rational actor,” is the trademark of Western confusion about the world. They refuse to see that our enemies are waging war against us, thus refuse to think about winning that war, thus lose many battles, and happily retreat. After all, if our enemies are rational actors, what could go wrong? We could even slash and burn our own

This past weekend, the Tennessee Law Review held a symposium on "New Frontiers in the Second Amendment." It was a follow-up, of sorts, to a symposium held almost 20 years ago, and boy, has a lot changed since then. In 1995, Second Amendment scholarship had been almost entirely nonexistent for decades, and what little there was (mostly written by lobbyists for gun-control groups) treated the matter as open-and-shut: The Second Amendment, we were told, protected only the right of state militias (or as former Chief Justice Warren Burger characterized them, "state armies") to possess guns.

I’ve often seen the literary phrase “lamentations of their women,” but I’ve never actually heard what such a thing sounded like — until today, that is. In the early morning of February 26, after hours of debate, the UCLA student government rejected a motion to divest their funds from Israel, despite a concerted campaign by anti-Israel activists on campus. Immediately after the vote, one of the anti-Israel activists on the panel burst into tears and started screaming and whining incomprehensibly, and in general throwing a tantrum worthy of a frustrated two year old. Luckily, the whole meltdown was captured on

IRS for Interfering with Campaign Finance

Eight former members of the Federal Election Commission today accused the Internal Revenue Service of attempting to “interfere” with campaign finance regulations enacted by Congress, The Foundry has learned. The former FEC commissioners signed a letter filed this afternoon as a public comment on the IRS’s proposed new rules on so-called “candidate-related political activity” by nonprofit advocacy organizations qualified as tax-exempt under federal law. Midnight is the deadline for public comment on the proposed rules, which critics say the IRS developed secretly and announced at Thanksgiving to silence some free speech – seven months after the IRS targeting scandal broke.

C-SPAN’s Brian Lamb recently interviewed Lee Ellis, author of Leading with Honor: Leadership Lessons from the Hanoi Hilton. The book is a valuable primer on history that many Americans have forgotten or not know only in part. Leading with Honor is also an introduction to characters all Americans should get to know better, such as Tom Hayden and Jane Fonda. Ellis came to know the pair under different circumstances. In November of 1967 Ellis was shot down on a mission to destroy the guns that protected the Quang Khe ferry that supplied the Ho Chi Minh Trail. In the Hoa

Be glad you’re not an Asian stinkbug, which are dying off in large numbers due to the cold, a new experiment shows.

Earlier this week, I had a blogpost on the defense budget. It was called “Decline Is a Choice. A Bad One.” It began, “Last year, when President Obama nominated Chuck Hagel to be secretary of defense, I said, ‘The president wants a Republican war hero to preside over the gutting of American defenses. Hagel will be his cover.’ Even as I said it, I was hoping it wasn’t true. But it is true, I’m afraid.” Whenever you write as I did, people tell you about Eisenhower and the “military-industrial complex,” as though you never heard of that phrase, or the speech in

While this nation´s adoption industry has been heavily regulated – and rightfully so – the engineering of children through the purchase of gametes and the rental of wombs remains the wild, wild west. In some states, anything goes. Any infertile couple working with a reputable adoption agency knows that the window of opportunity for adopting newborns closes as you approach forty years of age. After that, you´re cut off and must start considering adopting older children. In fact, agencies prefer that there be a comfortable distance between you and the big four-oh.

When it comes to higher education, most politicians are “cheerleaders.” They’re content to speak the usual pieties about the importance of college and never do anything that could upset the status quo. In a recent speech at Miami-Dade College, however, Florida Senator Marco Rubio suggested several higher education changes that might seriously upset the status quo. First, there is the Rubio-Wyden bill, known as the Student Right to Know Before You Go Act. This bill isn’t exactly new, having been introduced back in 2012. No matter – it is an intriguing proposal and all the more so for its conservative/liberal co-sponsorship.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.

The Defense Ministry was ordered to conduct the call-up, potentially of all men up to 40 in a country that still has universal male conscription.
