Published

Former President Barack Obama is flexing his muscles on Texas during the 2020 election cycle

According to Brandon Waltens of Texas Scorecard, Obama posted a list on Twitter of eight U.S. congressional candidates and 19 candidates for the Texas House that received his endorsement.

Obama’s endorsements come at a time when Democrats are targeting the Texas House, which appears to be in play this election cycle.

Interestingly, MJ Hegar, who recently won the Democrat primary to go toe to toe with U.S. Senator John Cornyn was, missing from the list.

Hegar is an Air Force veteran who failed to unseat Republican congressman John Carter in 2018. He barely defeated State Senator Royce West in the Democrat primary runoff election in July. Instead, Obama endorsed Democrat Senate candidates in other states such as Colorado, Iowa, Maine, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

Waltens noted the political play behind Obama not endorsing Hegar:

Though Obama billed the endorsement rollout as a ‘first wave,’ leaving open the possibility of a future endorsement for Hegar, it could be viewed as part of a strategy to moderate the Democrat candidate in an effort to be more competitive among general election voters in November. During his presidential campaigns, Texans rejected Obama on the ballot twice, and both times by double-digit margins.

In addition, Waltens provided a list of all the candidates that Obama has endorsed so far.

Part of Democrats’ strategy is to slowly chip away at Texas and turn into a leftist bastion. Groups such as Everytown for Gun Safety have already dropped $8 million to prop up anti-gun candidates in the 2020 election cycle.

Certain demographic trends allow for the Left to gain ground in the Lone Star State. If the Left is successful in flipping Texas, its vaunted Second Amendment and tax freedoms could be in jeopardy.

Republicans will need to campaign on issues that are dear to the grassroots if they want to ensure that turnout is maximized and prevent the Left from taking over. This type of work has to start now.

Mexican Government Reported that Nearly 80,000 People are Still Missing

Mexico Spirals Out of Control While Joe Biden Promises Mass Amnesty

Published

According to a report released by the Mexican government on November 25, 2020, over 79,500 people are still missing in Mexico.

This comes in the backdrop of Mexico’s infamous military offensive against drug cartels in 2006. Since the erstwhile president Felipe’s military offensive against drug cartels, the number of missing people in Mexico has skyrocketed.

Before 2006, there were 1,500 disappearances in Mexico, per statistics that Deputy Human Rights Minister Alejandro Encina put forward. Since July, there have been roughly 6,300 new cases reported.

Encina observed, however, that the number of disappearances have dropped since 2019.

Mexico is notorious for its alarming levels of violence, which is largely perpetuated by organized crime. In 2019, 34,582 people were murdered. So far in 2020, 26,431 people have been murdered from January to September. 

Encinas claimed that Mexican authorities have discovered 1,399 mass graves in Mexico over the past two years. Of the 2,290 bodies discovered in the graves, 879 have been identified.

Mexico is not in good shape and that’s putting it lightly. America at least recognized this with Donald Trump in office. Trump was elected on an America First platform which stressed tough policies on the border and was not willing tolerate mass immigration like his predecessors.

Sadly, the apparent president-Joe Biden is more concerned with trying to pass mass amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and freezing deportations for 100 days.

Securing our Southern border is a recognition of the cold, hard truth that Mexico is falling apart, and it’s institutional and social rot could potentially make its way up north. Much to America’s chagrin, the next occupant of the White House will likely not recognize that. Should fraud allegations fail to invalidate the current results of  the 2020 elections, America First patriots must act accordingly and make immigration a massive issue during the 2022 midterms, both in the primaries and general election.
