In its latest message to conservative voters across the state of Texas, an advocacy group is sounding the alarm about a Republican senator who is blocking two bills aiming to protect historical monuments from liberal statue fanatics, according to reports.
The group’s efforts appear to be successful. New information reveals that Republican Sen. Kel Seliger from the Dallas, Texas area, has since committed to support the bill, which goes to the floor Monday, May 6.
Conservative Response Team’s ad, at 30 seconds long, implored voters to bombard the state senator’s office with demands to protect Texas historical monuments by voting in the affirmative to let SB 1663 (filed by Sen. Brandon Creighton) to leave the Rules Committee and be places on the calendar for a floor vote of the full state Senate.
Previously, Seliger was intent on blocking the bill, citing a farcical “local issues” defense as a reason he refused to act.
Dallas, Houston, Austin; liberal cities in a cultural war against American history. Last year Alabama passed a law protecting historical monuments. Georgia was next and their law was signed last week. … There’s 18 votes to pass the bill but it needs 19 and Seliger is the lone holdout.
Seliger, along with fellow Republican Sen. Joan Huffman from Houston, Texas — were both holdouts against legislation designed to protect the 60-ft., 80-year-old Alamo Memorial Cenotaph from certain “relocation,” i.e., destruction, as part of Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush’s highly unpopular Alamo rennovation plan.
Bush signed and approved the “Re-Imagine the Alamo” master plan last October in the wake of contentious Republican primary elections — contentious primarily because of his stated plan to tear down and demolish the vaunted and revered “Cenotaph,” which simply means, “empty tomb.”
We reported on Bush’s numerous public statements and attempts to demolish the Cenotaph here, here, and here — with one hearing in this past legislative session even featuring testimony from Alamo-famous Col. William B. Travis’ great granddaughter.
Bush in statements before the Senate Finance Committee in December, 2017, told Sen. Joan Huffman — then a member of that committee — that “the Cenotaph will always stand … It will always be on the grounds of the Alamo.” When further examined in the context of his own “master plan” and “truth” websites (funded by Bush reelection campaign dollars), the neophyte’s statements take on a quite different meaning.
His comments to Huffman, who grilled Bush thoroughly, ring close to those given by impeached former President Bill Clinton when being asked about his affair with Monica Lewinsky:
“It depends upon what the meaning of is, is.”
The master plan also calls for removing and relocating the “Cenotaph,” the tall marble memorial to those who died in the Battle of the Alamo:
“Carefully disassemble the structure and conserve all the marble sections in a controlled environment. Provide a new structure [non – corrosive assembly instead of reinforced concrete].”
“Several potential locations were considered. The proposed location … will provide appropriate context and symbolism for the structure,” the master plan continues.
Many disagree with Bush’s premise that it’s best to respect the Alamo monument by tearing it apart and moving it somewhere else. To the contrary, former Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson took issue with the name of Bush’s redesign program, i.e. “Re-Imagine the Alamo” in a recent TV interview.
“We don’t need to reimagine the Alamo,” Patterson said. “We need to remember, revere and respect the Alamo; that’s why it [the Cenotaph] needs to stay,” he told NBC affiliate KXAN in San Antonio.
For Patterson, the Alamo provides appropriate context and symbolism for the structure — because it is where the men memorialized by the Cenotaph fought and died.

America First Patriot Kris Kobach Believes Democrats are Using the Wuhan Virus Crisis to Push Socialism
U.S. Senate Candidate Kris Kobach believes Democrats are politicizing the Wuhan Virus to push socialist policies.
He asserted, “Many Democrats are exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to launch a full-bore push for socialism—making the socialist rhetoric of the early Democratic presidential debates look tepid by comparison.”
The former Kansas Secretary of State believes that Democrats are taking advantage of the Wuhan Virus pandemic to push for a “centralized, national health care system.”
That means “No more private insurance, private clinics, or private hospitals.”
Kobach correctly notes that “the communist country [China] that unleashed this plague upon the world was the epitome of centralized control.”
But for radical Democrats, that does not even enter the equation. For them, it’s control at all costs.
Sanders is not alone.
New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio called for “a nationalization of crucial factories and industries that could produce the medical supplies to prepare this country for what we need.”
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo established a state-run hand sanitizer factory, and has even threatened the use of state power to control prices. This is only a testing ground for even larger collectivist schemes.
From a big picture perspective, Kobach understands what Democrats’ endgame is with these calls for government involvement in the economy during the pandemic:
Many on the Left are also calling for massive expansions of the welfare state that have little or nothing to do with the coronavirus. This is what the socialist Left has been demanding for decades. Their demands aren’t about bringing the coronavirus crisis to a swift close; they are about enlarging the dependency class. They are exploiting the coronavirus for all it’s worth.
Kobach called attention to how private companies such as General Motors and Tesla are stepping up to the plate to produce ventilators, when many naysayers only think the state should be involved.
In his view, “Only a robust private sector free from government regulation will be able to pull the American economy out of the impending recession when this crisis is over.”
Kobach gets it.
The former Kansas Secretary of State is a certified immigration patriot and understands the value of limited government.
He’s the only choice for America First patriots who believe in constitutional governance.
