Last week, Texas Senator Ted Cruz sent out a fundraising email calling on people to make contributions to Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan.
Curiously, Sullivan joined other Senators such as Lindsey Graham, John Cornyn, Mike Crapo, James Risch, Mike Rounds, Todd Young, Lisa Murkowski, and James Lankford in a letter directed to President Donald Trump asking for the administration to not suspend non-immigrant, work-based visas and other job safeguards for foreign nationals.
Michelle Hackman, a reporter who covers immigration policy at the Wall Street Journal, tweeted the following:

Conservative commentator Tucker Carlson called out the nine pro-cheap labor Republican Senators who signed this letter in a show last week.
One of Ted Cruz’s legal American Hispanic constituents enthusiastically responded to news about Cruz’s fundraising letter in support of Sullivan.
The constituent tweeted, “Thanks for the heads up. .@SenTedCruz & . @JohnCornyn no response from your office still from email. .@TuckerCarlson stay on this!!!!! My job and the 40mil others matter more than #h1bvisa”
This is a strange development when considering that Cruz signed on to a letter along with Senators Josh Hawley and Tom Cotton, calling for the suspension of work visas for a year until employment levels reached normal rates. Indeed, Cruz’s actions appear to be incoherent. His signature on that letter is commendable, but there needs to be more consistency in his actions.
Namely, he needs to be propping up more candidates who actually believe in immigration restriction such as Kris Kobach or forming stronger alliances with the likes of Josh Hawley. Trying to play nice with everyone will not make patriotic immigration reform a reality.
There must be a plan to elect immigration patriots and ultimately get roll call votes on real immigration reform.
The immigration question is no trivial matter.
Due to the post-1965 Immigration Act voting patterns, America could be on the cusp of an unprecedented political transformation which could put civil liberties such as the right to bear arms and free speech in danger.
We are entering uncharted territory and we cannot afford to walk blindly into this battle without any form of strategy.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
