Indeed, Texas politics has become more competitive during the last few years. The 2018 election cycle demonstrated this as Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke over-performed at the polls and put up a major fight against incumbent Senator Ted Cruz.

This same election cycle witnessed staunch conservatives such as former State Representative Matt Rinaldi lose their seat to Democrats.

Many political statisticians argue that Texas’ competitiveness is largely due to the changing demographics in the state, which makes immigration reform a must for the GOP to remain relevant in the Lone Star State.

Should these trends continue unabated, many policies that have made Texas a freedom hub — gun rights and zero income taxation — could potentially be on the chopping block.

Texas GOP leadership will have to wake up to this fact and start pushing for a merit-based immigration system that has restrictive pathways to citizenship.

Weak Senator Mitt Romney Attacks GOP’s Investigation On Sleepy Joe’s Corruption

Published

on

On September 16, 2020, Utah Senator Mitt Romney criticized his fellow Republicans in the Senate Homeland Security Committee for their investigation into Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son’s business dealings in Ukraine.

Romney declared that this investigation had the “earmarks of a political exercise.”

Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, the leader of this investigation, said to reporters on September 14 that “in about a week we’re going to learn a whole lot more of Vice President Biden’s unfitness for office.” The committee is in the process of investigating Hunter Biden’s work for Ukrainian gas company Burisma during a time when Joe Biden was the head of Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.

Romney specifically stated at a hearing on September 16 that the investigation “from the outset had the earmarks of a political exercise. I’m fearful that comments made in the media recently have only confirmed that perspective.”

The Utah Senator declared “It’s not the legitimate role of government, for Congress or for taxpayer expense, to be used in an effort to damage political opponents.” He added, “I do believe it’s very important that the committees of Congress, and ours in particular, not fall into an increasing pattern that we’re seeing, which is using taxpayer dollars and the power of Congress to do political work. That’s the role of campaigns.”

Earlier in March of this year, Romney said that the investigation “appears” to be politically motivated. However, a spokesperson for the senator said that he ended up changing his mind the following day after receiving a promise from Johnson that the probe would be conducted behind closed doors.

Romney yet again shows his true colors as a Republican with no spine. In a previous report, BLP exposed Romney for calling out Trump and asserting that he is stoking racial animosity. Romney’s politically correct comments show how low he will stoop to in trying to seek approval from the political establishment. It’s no surprise why he voted to impeach Trump earlier this year.

Serious conservatives should do everything possible to boot Romney out of the party.
