WATCH: Texas Monument Protection Act Hearing In Austin

Published

on

AUSTIN, TEXAS — On Tue., April 2, lawmakers considered a bill to specifically protect the Alamo memorial monument (“Cenotaph”), but now will debate protecting “all” Texas historical monuments with blanket, one-sized-fits-all legislation, according to reports.

House Bill 583 authored by Texas State Representative James White, and its sister bill, Senate Bill 1663 by Senator Brandon Creighton, have been scheduled for committee hearings this week.

Rep. White’s bill, HB583, is scheduled for today, in the House Committee on Culture, Recreation and Tourism, at 2 p.m. For Austin residents: it will be held in room E1.014.

SB1663  is scheduled for its own, separate hearing in the Senate Committee on Natural Resources & Economic Development on Thurs., April 11, at 9am.

The proposed legislation will attempt to extend blanket protection for historical monuments and markers throughout Texas and subject attempts to remove them the ballot box test.

For any who like the Alamo, but are not hot on the Civil War — it’s possible the legislation under discussion today may not be as motivating as the Cenotaph bill debated last week and reporterted on by Big League Politics.

One section of White’s “monuments” bill even gives George P. Bush the power to tear down the Cenotaph — just like he’s doing now — as long as he says it’s for “improvements,”

(c)  A monument or memorial may be removed, relocated, or
altered in a manner otherwise provided by this code as necessary to
accommodate construction, repair, or improvements to the monument
or memorial or to the surrounding [state] property on which the
monument or memorial is located and as authorized by the Texas
Historical Commission.

Despite the different wording and broader construction of the bills, some groups hold that passage is “critical” to the protection and preservation of Texas culture.

America First Patriot Kris Kobach Believes Democrats are Using the Wuhan Virus Crisis to Push Socialism

Published

on

U.S. Senate Candidate Kris Kobach believes Democrats are politicizing the Wuhan Virus to push socialist policies.

He asserted, “Many Democrats are exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to launch a full-bore push for socialism—making the socialist rhetoric of the early Democratic presidential debates look tepid by comparison.”

The former Kansas Secretary of State believes that Democrats are taking advantage of the Wuhan Virus pandemic to push for a “centralized, national health care system.”

That means “No more private insurance, private clinics, or private hospitals.”

Kobach correctly notes that “the communist country [China] that unleashed this plague upon the world was the epitome of centralized control.”

But for radical Democrats, that does not even enter the equation. For them, it’s control at all costs.

Sanders is not alone.

New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio called for “a nationalization of crucial factories and industries that could produce the medical supplies to prepare this country for what we need.”

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo established a state-run hand sanitizer factory, and has even threatened the use of state power to control prices. This is only a testing ground for even larger collectivist schemes.

From a big picture perspective, Kobach understands what Democrats’ endgame is with these calls for government involvement in the economy during the pandemic:

Many on the Left are also calling for massive expansions of the welfare state that have little or nothing to do with the coronavirus. This is what the socialist Left has been demanding for decades. Their demands aren’t about bringing the coronavirus crisis to a swift close; they are about enlarging the dependency class. They are exploiting the coronavirus for all it’s worth.

Kobach called attention to how private companies such as General Motors and Tesla are stepping up to the plate to produce ventilators, when many naysayers only think the state should be involved.

In his view, “Only a robust private sector free from government regulation will be able to pull the American economy out of the impending recession when this crisis is over.”

Kobach gets it.

The former Kansas Secretary of State is a certified immigration patriot and understands the value of limited government.

He’s the only choice for America First patriots who believe in constitutional governance.
