Congressman Will Hurd announced this week that he would not be seeking reelection in 2020.
Hurd announced on Twitter, “I have made the decision to not seek reelection for the 23rd Congressional District of Texas in order to pursue opportunities outside the halls of Congress to solve problems at the nexus between technology and national security,”

Hurd is the only African American Republican in the House of Representatives.
He is the sixth GOP lawmaker and third House Republican in Texas to announce his retirement in the last two weeks.
Hurd declared in a statement that he left his previous job in the CIA to run for Congress in 2014 to provide the U.S. House with aid in intelligence and national security matters.
The outgoing Congressman said, “While Congress has a role in these issues, so does the private sector and civil society.”
He added, “After reflecting on how best to help our country address these challenges, I’m leaving the House of Representatives to help our country in a different way.”
Hurd represents a congressional district that spans the U.S.-Mexico border between San Antonio and El Paso. The New York Times notes that this district is essentially a swing district given that it has flipped five times between Republicans and Democrats since the 1990s.
For lovers of basic freedom, Hurd’s presence in Congress will not be missed.
He was one of the few Republicans who voted for H.R. 8 , the House’s universal gun registration bill, which was the largest expansion of gun control to pass a chamber of Congress since the Brady Act of 1993.
On top of that, Hurd voted for an amnesty bill that would potentially grant a pathway to citizenship to millions of illegal aliens.
Based on these votes, Hurd proved to be a reliable member of the political establishment.
Texas’ 23rd District deserves a true conservative option.
Hack Economist Paul Krugman Celebrates the Death of Elderly White People
On June 30, 2020, economist Paul Krugman expressed his desire for the death of White Americans.
He tweeted, “Reality is coming for white supremacists driving golf carts” in reference to an article from Bloomberg News that highlighted how the Wuhan virus pandemic is particularly deadly and disproportionately impacting older segments of the American population.
According to Bloomberg, “record numbers of Floridians 75 and older are testing positive for Covid-19,” according to a June 29 report.
The report added:
Florida hasn’t seen a departure from its relatively low rate of Covid-19 deaths, but it can take weeks from onset of symptoms to death, and the surge in infections is recent.
The new positivity rate — which measures the proportion of people testing positive for the first time compared to the day’s overall testing — started climbing significantly about two weeks ago.
Common sense measures such as quarantining and isolating the elderly population make sense in these circumstances. But total lockdowns are an overreach.
To the point of Krugman race-baiting, this is not a surprise given his status as a mainstream economist.
Political correctness is his M.O., from pushing central banking to perpetuating destructive identity politics.
The Right will need to assert itself against this mob and keep them from gaining power.
More importantly, they must implement policies such as defunding public education at all levels to prevent these people from further consolidating power.
