George P. Bush, the former boss of Jeffrey Miller, has repeatedly pledged to tear down the Alamo Cenotaph (“empty tomb”), as seen in his own Alamo Master plan, and before the Senate Finance Committee, where he refused to commit to a future that did not involve relocating the fragile monument.
If the old refrain, “personnel is policy” still carries any weight, the legislature is still owned and operated by the Bush milieu. Miller openly supports the Bush wing of the Republican Party, and he’s proud of it.
Here is a photo of Miller posing with George P. Bush:
And, here’s Miller again, this time working to elect Jeb! (Please clap):
According to sources, Miller killed HB 583, the final form of the monuments protection law that aimed to protect the fragile, memorial Alamo Cenotaph (“empty tomb”) as well as other significant pieces of Texas history.
He did so by prolonging the amount of time the bill was in his office, rather than in front of the Texas House Calendars Committee, which received the bill only after 3 days, a conspicuously long amount of time abnormal for bills of this nature.
According to a source close to the Texas General Land Office (GLO), Miller may have pulled an inside job for Bush by serving as clerk — a huge step down financially and influence-wise for the young buck — on the committee where his Alamo plan was most under fire the previous session.
Personnel records show that Bush made at least 40 external hires between November 2014 and July 2015, but listed only four of those with the Workforce Commission. The average salary for those four jobs was about $65,000. The average salary for the 36 jobs that were not posted was about $90,000.
Translation: Miller did not stand to gain from leaving the GLO. Why did he, then?
Such an inside connect would enable Bush to use the paper shuffle to influence the outcome of key legislation potentially affecting his unethical financial dealings and plans to “relocate” the marble Cenotaph — an act which all engineers allege will destroy the precious state monument.
That’s exactly what our sources have concluded. “It was the Culture, Tourism and Arts committee clerk, Jeff Miller, who worked for George P. at the GLO before he moved to the legislature. Miller took 3 days to get the report to Calendars so they could vote on it. That limited the time folks could work the Calendars Committee to get it out and to the floor,” our source stated.
See, images below indicating time spent in each career position prior to becoming a “clerk” in the oddly policy-specific House committee:
Similar statements about HB 583’s fate were made by Rep. Metcalf to BLP yesterday, May 20, 2019:
I am a believer in historical preservation. We have to maintain our history so that we don’t forget where we came from.
I supported both House Bill 583 and its Senate Companion, Senate Bill 1663. I was disappointed that neither made the House Calendar. Unfortunately both bills made it to the Calendars Committee very late in the process when members are being pulled in many different directions, and I am only one of eleven voices. I look forward to supporting similar legislation in future Sessions so that we may protect our history so future generations know the costs, good and bad, borne by those who came before us.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
