New TV Ad Helps Save Texas Monuments

The future of the Alamo could depend on Kel Seliger.

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.

The voiceover from the ad tells us:
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.
Though it does not mention it, Seliger was joined by another lawmaker whose votes together would’ve prevented passage, even if SB 1663 reached the floor.

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.”

[Emphasis added.]

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.

Jon Ossoff’s Endorsement by Giffords Proves He is an Anti-Gun Stooge

Georgia Voters Who Care About the Second Amendment Should Reject Both Democrat Candidates

Now that former Vice President Joe Biden is the presumptive president-elect, conservatives are busy re-grouping.

Although the presidential election appears to be sorted out, electors still have to cast their ballots on December 14. On top of that, there’s still unsettled business in Georgia.

While a 50-50 split by no means guarantees that gun control will be passed at will, this puts Democrats one step closer towards implementing their anti-gun fantasies.

The case for Perdue is pretty simple. He’s a solid immigration patriot and a staunch Second Amendment supporter. He can be counted on to keep the Left in check.

Ossoff is currently endorsed by Giffords, one of the fastest growing civilian disarmament lobbies in America. This organization was founded by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and has been increasingly active in promoting anti-Second Amendment politicians over the last few years.

Giffords’ endorsement of Ossoff makes sense. According to Ossoff’s platform, he plans on prohibiting the sales of semiautomatic rifles and “high capacity” magazines. Not to mention, he wants to check off every other item on the gun grabber checkbox by supporting red flag confiscation orders, universal background checks, tighten the so-called “gun show loophole”, and implement licensing for semiautomatic rifles and handguns that millions of Americans already own.

Ossoff’s anti-gun endorsement list is quite diverse. AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News called attention to the fact that “Ossoff is also endorsed by the Mike Bloomberg-founded gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety. He is also endorsed by Everytown’s subsidiary gun control group, Moms Demand Action.”

When Gabby Giffords’ organization gave Ossoff their endorsement, they were very explicit about the intention behind endorsing Ossoff, revealing that they are “working to unseat an NRA-backed incumbent.”

An Ossoff victory, along with Raphael Warnock winning his race against Kelly Loeffler, would be big victories for Gun Control Inc. The anti-gun lobby is hungry and they’ll need a Senate majority in order to expand federal gun control.

January 5, 2021 is the pivotal date that will determine the balance of the U.S. Senate. Georgia voters have clear choices in Perdue and Loeffler. A vote for Ossoff and Warnock is a green light for Second Amendment infringements.
