Texas Politician Stock Photo Diverse Supporters

Texas City Councilman Ron Kelly used a stock photo from iStock in a Facebook political advertisement citing his “broad support” from diverse individuals within the community.

A Texas politician claimed his “campaign has broad support from people of different religions, nationalities, skin colors, and political affiliation” in a Facebook advertisement, and as evidence he used a photo titled “Smiling Group of Ethnically Diverse Businessman and Businesswomen” from the stock photography website iStock.

While his assertion may be true, the use of a stock photo to prove his point seems ill conceived.

Kelly is running for reelection as a City Councilman in Plano, Texas, where he has been endorsed by local media, and campaigns for the city to keep its status quo.

The Dallas Morning News endorsed him for reelection in a gushing article:

Plano City Council member Ron Kelley has been on the front lines of the development battles. As the city continues its long-running debate on housing density, his experience will be important to finding balance between preparing for a more-diverse population and maintaining a suburban feel. Voters should give Kelley another term in Place 5.

The 56-year-old, who runs a nonprofit religious group that provides career transition and financial services, touts a record of voting against apartment projects. But he’s open to mixed-use projects that would provide more units in an urban-style setting, mixed with retail shops and restaurants, in areas the city needs to develop, such as the proposal to revamp Collin Creek Mall. He touts that development as a key to revitalizing that portion of the city.

His primary opponent, Shelby Williams, has the support of a conservative coalition including Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, and he is campaigning on reducing or freezing the large property taxes in the city. Williams was “was recruited to run by staunch conservative groups,” something the local media appears to be attempting to use against him.

On his Facebook Page, Williams mocked Kelly’s use of the stock photo.

“In addition to the numerous Plano citizens from all walks of life, and all corners of the globe, I am especially proud to have the support of the very same stock-photo as my opponent!” Williams added, “We can all live in harmony if we simply pony up a few bucks to iStockPhoto!”

Trump Advisor Stephen Miller Touts Administration’s ‘Towering Legacy of Achievement’ That Will ‘Endure for Generations to Come’ in Farewell Note

Miller is a class act.

White House senior advisor Stephen Miller touted President Donald Trump’s “towering legacy of achievement” that he believes will “endure for generations to come” in a farewell note as the Trump administration comes to an end today.

Miller is refusing to budge even at a time when many of the President’s former allies in the Republican Party are throwing Trump under the bus. Miller remains a stalwart defender of Trump’s “America First” agenda that he helped to engineer working in the administration.

“As we conclude our four years together in this hallowed home, I join you in taking immense pride and profound satisfaction in all that we achieved for our country. Serving President Trump has been the honor and privilege of a lifetime,” Miller wrote.

“Every day, our fearless 45th president battled tirelessly to protect our citizens, preserve our heritage, defend our sovereignty, and deliver for the loyal, law-abiding, hardworking men and women of our country. His towering legacy of achievement will endure for generations to come – its impact only building and growing with each passing year,” he added.

Miller made it clear in his note to Trump supporters that the best is yet to come for the America First movement.

“The issues and principles we have been fighting for remain firmly center stage. I have no doubt we will very soon be fighting side-by-side together once more,” he wrote.

The full letter can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on the flak Miller has received for being one of the few administration officials to push Trump in a nationalist direction:

25 Jewish Congressmen representing the Democrat Party issued a letter to the White house on Friday calling for President Donald Trump to fire Stephen Miller, a Jewish man, over false claims of white supremacy.

Reps. Bradley Schneider (IL), Adam Schiff (CA), Debbie Wassermann-Schultz (FL), Jerrold Nadler (NY), Elissa Slotkin (MI), Max Rose (NY), Nita Lowey (NY), Eliot Engel (NY), Kim Schrier (WA), Jan Schakowsky (IL), Susan Wild (PA), David Cicilline (RI), Susan Davis (CA), Alan Lowenthal (CA), Jamie Raskin (MD), Mike Levin (CA), Lois Frankel (FL), Steve Cohen (TN), Elaine Luria (VA), Ted Deutch (FL), John Yarmuth (KY), Andy Levin (MI), Dean Phillips (MN), Josh Gottheimer (NJ), and Brad Sherman (CA) signed the letter demanding the dismissal of Miller.

“As Jewish members of Congress, we are calling on you to immediately relieve White House Senior Advisor Stephen Miller of all government responsibilities and dismiss him from your Administration,” they wrote.

“His documented support for white nationalist and virulently anti-immigrant tropes is wholly unacceptable and disqualifying for a government employee,” they added.

The smear was started by the discredited anti-American organization, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). They obtained emails from failed journalist Katie McHugh, who is now on the globalist payroll as a snitch after being unable to keep a job at conservative media outlets due to lack of competence and work ethic.

Miller will be remembered as one of the few men in Trump’s administration who did not become part of the swamp. He will remain an influential figure in the populist America First movement for years to come.
