Outgoing Congressman Will Hurd claimed that “there won’t be a Republican Party” if it doesn’t embrace diversity during an interview with Alexi McCammond for “Axios on HBO.”
Hurd announced in August that he won’t be running for re-election in Texas’ 23rd Congressional district. His decision to not run for office is not an isolated incident in Texas politics. A growing number of Texas Republicans are now retiring from Congress.
During his interview, Hurd specifically said “I do believe that if the Republican Party doesn’t start looking like the rest of the country, there won’t be a Republican Party in this country. But we know where the trends are going, and we know what we need to do.”
Hurd also commented on the changing nature of the Texas electorate:
Minorities, people under the age of 29, and women with a college degree in the suburbs are not choosing the Republican Party. So that’s the reality of what we have to do in Texas. And I think I’ve been the vanguard in this fight by showing how to win one of the, if not the, most competitive seat in the United States of America, a 71% Latino district.
The Texas Congressman does raise a valid point about changing demographics. It’s no secret that the radical feminization of women in universities has caused women to shift towards the Left. Political strategist Steve Bannon recognizes that college-educated women may be a lost cause for the modern-day GOP.
Most important and relevant to Texas’ political context is the question of immigration.
Like it or not, Hispanic migration tends to favor the Democratic Party in the long-term.
In fact, BLP’s report on the 2018 elections offer a sneak preview of what continued migration will do to Texas’ political climate. In short, it does not bode well for Republicans’ electability in the Lone Star State.
Additionally, Third World migration brings potential pubic security risks given the propensity of migrants to congregate in ethnic ghettos. Europe has witnessed firsthand the rise of no-go zones thanks to EU immigration policy which favors Third World migrants. Similarly, the socio-economic implications of mass migration paint a bleak picture for American workers as they have to compete against unskilled masses of workers coming into America.
Instead of using leftist talking points, politicians like Hurd should be talking about a transition towards a merit-based immigration system, rescinding immigration policies such as birthright citizenship and chain migration, and making genuine attempts to bolster border security. These kinds of policies can keep the historic American nation intact, while offering opportunities to the world’s most skilled migrants, who are more likely to contribute in a positive way and assimilate.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
