George P. Bush wins Republican primary
race for Texas land commissioner

Texas Tribune, by Claire Allbright

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/7/2018 5:18:41 AM

Land Commissioner George P. Bush won the GOP primary Tuesday and avoided a runoff against his predecessor. With most of the votes tallied statewide, Bush won nearly 58 percent of the vote. Former Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson was in second place with 30 percent of the vote in the four-person race that included land surveyor Davey Edwards and retired firefighter and teacher Rick Range. Bush thanked his supporters on Twitter: "Texas voters — THANK YOU! Your steadfast support through this primary is what has made tonight´s victory possible!" Bush, a first-term incumbent, raised more than $1.5 million in the year before the election,

I used to respect the Bushes but since G W Bush had to start badmouthing Trump after 8 years of silence on Obama I won´t be voting for anybody in that family.

Does George P. support sanctuary city and amnesty policies? Until he proves otherwise, I don´t trust him.

Don´t blame me, I voted for Jerry Patterson. He doesn´t want to turn the Alamo into a theme park. I´ll still have to vote for Bush in November, though, since voting for Democrats would result in the entire state reenacting the battle of the Alamo.

I voted for him. It speaks well of him that he supported Trump, as I did, when so many in the Republican party were against him. He´s a Bush, yeah, but he´s also the only Bush who bucked the family and supported Trump both before and after the election. I´m glad I´M not responsible for the sins of my fathers.

Patterson, on the other hand, supports Trump NOW but, as I recall, he made a public statement in the run-up to the election urging Trump to withdraw so we could beat Hillary. And his ads trashing George P. in this race have been a real turn-off. Instead of touting his own imagined prowess at being Texas land commissioner himself (before he decided he wanted a better job), he trashed his replacement whom he´d recommended for the job in the first place. Stuff like that smells funny to me.

I was very surprised at the 58% total of the vote.

Texans are going to have to take up the fight to save the Alamo from his plexiglass walled in theme park idea. The history speaks for itself.

In a strange way, P Bush winning the primary 182 years to the day the Alamo fell the The Shrine of Texas Liberty may have fallen again to developers who don´t respect the deep and profund sensibilities of a very large majority of Texans.

I disagree. The George P. vote proves that Texans are not rebelling against the plan to refurbish and restore our sacred and historical Alamo. Old buildings left to fall into great disrepair sometimes cannot be saved. This one cane be, and in a protecting and productive plan.

As I recall, Trump himself endorsed George P.and thanked him for his support in the 2016 Presidential. You folks need to get your facts straight.

‘Future Pres’ Hillary —
the Font of all the Scandals
National Review Online, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article

Review the Clinton email scandal, the Steele dossier, the insertion of at least one FBI informant into the Trump campaign, the misleading of the FISA court by FBI and DOJ officials intent on monitoring U.S. citizens, and, now, the inspector general’s report. There emerges a common denominator: the surety by all involved that Hillary Clinton would be president, and the need to prepare for that fact. Examine the IG’s transcript of a random, pre-election series of electronic chitchat between high-ranking FBI employees: 15:07:41, Agent 1: “ . . .

WASHINGTON - Decrying “internment camps,” Democrats and their supporters disrupted a high-profile U.S. congressional hearing on Tuesday with a dramatic protest against the Trump administration’s policy of detaining immigrant children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. With the sound of a young child crying in the background, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, Jerrold Nadler, broke from traditional protocol and started reading from a statement, saying “these children are not animals.” His Republican colleagues tried to shout over him “Out of order!”

   

 

  


 
Growing Up With Steve Miller
Texas Monthly Magazine, by Max Marshall    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/17/2018 8:12:10 AM     Post Reply
One night in the spring of 2007, when I was thirteen, my little brother and I cupped our hands to our upstairs hallway window, looked through the cigar smoke in our backyard, and tried to find Steve Miller. There was a grown-up party swirling around outside, but we couldn’t figure out which adult was the celebrity guest. We’d learned every Steve Miller Band classic rock hit from 93.3 The Bone, but we had no idea what the guy looked like. The albums we owned either had a painting of Pegasus or a man in a Joker mask on the cover,

Insubordination and Bias at FBI
Wall Street Journal, by Kimberley A. Strassel    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/15/2018 8:06:36 AM     Post Reply
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s 500-page report covers plenty, but it can be distilled to two words he uses to describe the Federal Bureau of Investigation during the 2016 election: insubordination and bias. Two terms that are chilling in connection with such a powerful agency. That won’t be the message from Democrats and most of the press, who will focus on a few episodes they will claim cost Hillary Clinton an election. Watch for them to blame former FBI Director James Comey, whom the report faults for “a serious error of judgment,” for having “concealed information” from superiors, and for “violation of or

Texts reveal disgraced FBI agent

A key FBI investigator in the probes into Russian election meddling and Hillary Clinton’s email server wrote to his bureau colleague and lover that “we’ll stop” Donald Trump from becoming president. Inspector General Michael Horowitz on Thursday revealed the text message exchange between the agent, Peter Strzok, and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, in his report on the FBI’s and Justice Department’s probe into the bureau’s handling of the probe into Clinton’s emails, the Washington Post reported. “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” the lawyer, Lisa Page, wrote to Strzok. “No. No he won’t.

Rod Rosenstein, cult hero
Powerline, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/14/2018 2:30:10 PM     Post Reply
More than any federal agency or department I’ve worked for, with, or against, the Justice Department resembles a cult. Its employees think they are special. They feel intense hostility towards the Department’s adversaries. They are fiercely loyal to the Department and compulsively committed to its ways of doing things. Outsiders are viewed with condescension and suspicion, if not contempt. Obviously, many DOJ employees do not buy fully into the cult, but many do. Those who rise to the top tend to embrace it the most. This brings us to Rod Rosenstein, a career DOJ attorney who joined the department in 1990.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz faults then-FBI Director James Comey for being “insubordinate” and other FBI agents for sending anti-Trump text messages in his long-awaited review of the FBI and DOJ’s Hillary Clinton investigation during the 2016 presidential election. For more than a year, Horowitz has been reviewing the agencies’ actions related to its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. The report was released Thursday afternoon. Horowitz’s investigation looked at a variety of allegations, including whether it was improper for Comey to make a

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Michelle Obama joined her fellow former first lady Laura Bush Monday in criticizing the hard-line Trump administration immigration policy that has led to families being separated at the border. Bush, the wife of former President George W. Bush, penned a tweet over the weekend in which she echoed the widespread condemnation of the new directive from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “I live in a border state,” Bush said. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Quoting that tweet, Obama wrote that “sometimes truth transcends

Hillary Clinton weighed in Monday morning on the ongoing controversy regarding the Trump administration’s "no-tolerance” border policy, suggesting that Jesus would not condone the actions of the American border authorities. At an awards lunch for the Women’s Forum of New York, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee called out “those who selectively use the Bible” to give grounds for the separations, which were reported by the Department of Justice on Friday. “I went to a lot of years of Sunday school — even taught it from time to time.

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights. "Young people are setting aside their differences and identifying issues they think need to change. And they can do everything to get that change

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Michelle Obama traded workout clothes for a chic suit as she went out to lunch in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The former first lady looked perfectly chic for her business lunch as she dined at the Gjelina restaurant in Venice. Michelle swapped out her usual jewel tones with a softer palate of pastels for the meeting. She opted for light green wide-leg trousers and a suit jacket done in matching green and black stripes, topping the look off with a simple white shirt and sandals. The former first lady also shielded her face with an oversized pair of pastel pink sunglasses
