Though the ad doesn’t mention it, the iconic Alamo, an 80-year-old, 60-foot memorial to the 189 (or more) men who gave their lives for Texas, seems present.

This reporter was the keynote speaker on the very issue of preserving Texas history and defending the Alamo memorial in Dallas a year ago today.

Here’s a sample from my presentation to the influential Republican organization, Preston Hollow-Park Cities Forum:

If they can tear down the visible reminders of who we
are, they can make us forget how far we’ve come.

And if they can tell us where we have been, then they
can change where we are going.

Countries​ ​that​ ​tear​ ​down​ ​their​ ​history,​ ​soon​ ​tear​ ​down
other​ ​things,​ ​like​ ​FREE​ ​SPEECH.

Land Commissioner George P. Bush signed an Alamo redesign plan that includes dismantling and relocating the Cenotaph — memorial to the men who died for Texas liberty.

“Carefully disassemble the structure and conserve all the marble sections in a controlled environment,” the plan reads. “Provide a new structure [non – corrosive assembly instead of reinforced concrete],” it continues.

It’s always best to respect a monument by tearing it apart and moving it somewhere else.

“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.).

In response to Bush’s proposed actions, Patrick committed in recorded audio dated October, 2017, to stop Cenotaph from being torn down.

Patrick has not since renewed his commitment to that “line in the sand.” In fact, Patrick was part of the State Preservation Board decision that consigned a Civil War memorial plaque to the ashbin after being on Capitol grounds since 1959.

“The events of 1836 were just one small chapter in 10,000 years of history,” said George Skarmeas, Bush’s Alamo redesign planning director until recently.

The Cenotaph is inscribed thusly,

Erected in memory of the heroes who sacrificed their lives at the Alamo, March 6, 1836, in the defense of Texas. They chose never to surrender nor retreat; these brave hearts, with flag still proudly waving, perished in the flames of immortality that their high sacrifice might lead to the founding of this Texas

 

 

Midterms 2022

Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election

America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.

On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.

According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate. 

“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.

The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”

In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that  “This is a tough time to be in public service.”

Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back. 

2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state. 

America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
