Famous Alamo Defender’s Granddaughter Fights George P. Bush Plan To ‘Relocate’ Memorial

George P. Bush wants to dismantle the Alamo. Descendants of the Alamo’s defenders want to stop him.

AUSTIN, TEXAS — Liz Case Pickens, the great granddaughter of Col. William Barrett Travis, recently scolded lawmakers and Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush’s plan to “relocate” the iconic 60-foot Alamo Cenotaph memorial, warning that any such”relocation” will destroy the monument.

Pickens and many other Texans took to the podium at Tuesday’s hearing held to consider delaying George P. Bush’s plan to dismantle and move the Alamo monument.

Emboldened by her family lineage, Ms. Pickens  drew her own “line in the sand” to defend the Alamo yet again, but this time to defend her ancestor’s “gravemarker,” as she refers to the Cenotaph.

Ms. Pickens’ great grandfather Col. Travis, who famously drew his “line in the sand” on that fateful third day at the Alamo, asked for only those to remain who would fight to the death. Not a single denizen of the Alamo was a coward that day, if history’s legendary brew is accurate.

Citing detailed, scientific engineering studies that all conclude the monument shouldn’t be moved, Pickens cautions that Bush really wants to destroy and store the monument.

“The cenotaph sits on sacred ground. It is in the geographic center of the footprint of the Alamo — it’s also the gravemarker for our defenders who we cherish as Texans. I wouldn’t be standing here today if I were just a Texan,” she stated. “But I happen to be a descendant of Col. William Barrett Travis,” she continued. “If somebody was coming to move, desecrate or destroy the gravemarker of one of your … grandparents, you would not be happy … .”

“In 2000, an engineering study was done, and they did a 27-page study of the Cenotaph, which you can find at SanAntonio.gov — which Coppini [the artist who designed the monument] said should never be moved — that this great marker will be damaged, if not destroyed,” Pickens stated.

The saber-rattling descendant of the saber-wielding Travis of 1836 Alamo fame, is leading the charge against Bush plans to “relocate” the Cenotaph, which has ground anchors that extend 20 feet into the Earth.

Here’s a speech she gave as part of the “Save the Cenotaph” rally in Feb. 2018:

Quite simply, Pickens believes (as do others who testified Tuesday) that such design and solid construction (weather-worn, or not) will respond about as well to being dug up as a corpse freshly buried.

“This is sacred ground. Our ancestor’s gravemarker needs to be left where it is,” Pickins said, closing her remarks to the Texas House Committee on Culture, Recreation and Tourism.

Big League Politics obtained the following video of the hours-long citizen testimony given overwhelmingly in favor of HB 1836, a bill that will effectively stymie Bush’s headlong rush to rip the monument from its current location.

Land Commissioner George P. Bush signed an Alamo redesign plan that includes dismantling and relocating the Cenotaph, an 80-year-old, 60-foot memorial to the 189 (or more) men who gave their lives for Texas.

In February, 2019, Texas State Rep. Kyle Biedermann introduced HB 1836, a measure ostensibly for the “PRESERVATION, MAINTENANCE, AND RESTORATION OF ALAMO CENOTAPH.” The hearings were to review that proposal — not other historical preservation legislation.

The tall, marble monument salutes the fallen heroes of Alamo, e.g Col. William B. Travis, James “Jim” Bowie, and David “Davey” Crockett who died in 1836 at the old Spanish mission fighting Mexican dictator, Gen. Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna.

“Several potential locations were considered. The proposed location … will provide appropriate context and symbolism for the structure.”

San Antonio City Council wants to “honor” the men of the Alamo by moving their tombstone to the place where Santa Anna burned their carcasses following his disreputable and savage order of “Deguello” (take no prisoners, kill everyone, women, children, etc.).

Bush assures the people of Texas, “the Cenotaph will always stand,” while signing a plan to relocate it.

FLASHBACK: Man Arrested at Bill Gates’ Estate for Allegedly Exchanging Child Porn

Published

on

In late December 2014, police arrested a Seattle man at Bill Gates and Melinda Gates’ mansion for allegedly compiling more than 6,000 child rape photos.

Rick Allen Jones was employed as an engineer at the Gates’ home and was accused of trading pornography images though Gmail.

He was charged with possession of child pornography.

At the time, the 51-year-old man had been collecting child porn for a decade, according to a report from King County prosecutors.

In 2013, investigators started investigating Jones.

They were able to track him down in March 2014 after he shared a suspicious image on Gmail.

Investigators initially failed to find Jones at his Ballard, Washington apartment. However, police ended up finding Jones at Gates’ estate.

It should be noted none of the crimes actually took place at the Gates mansion.

As Jones was talking to law enforcement at the Gates’ estate, three other detectives obtained a search warrant for Jones’ in Ballard.

At the apartment, the authorities found more than 6,000 images of grisly child porn and rape, 133 of which were children identified by police. On June 19, 2015, Jones plead guilty to felony possession of child pornography and failing to report child pornography.

He was sentenced to 90 days at King County jail, which was accompanied by two years of probation — a complete slap on the wrist when compared to similar cases.

Gates has been a leading proponent of globalist causes in the last few decades.

He is currently spearheading a movement to bring mass vaccination to the U.S. to fight the Wuhan Virus.

One of the nastier secrets of these elites are their alleged connections to vast pedophile rings.

Although there’s no concrete evidence to implicate Gates as a member of these networks, it is rather curious that an employee of his would get caught up in such activities and receive a light sentence.
