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.

One of the things that motivated my old friend Andrew Breitbart was his righteous indignation at being called a racist. That’s a running theme in his book, Righteous Indignation. “Andrew Breitbart despised racism,” his friend Ben Shapiro told me. “He took pride in rejecting racism and fighting it tooth and nail. He saw it as a form of bullying. Nothing devastated him more personally than being maligned as racist.” He would also advise conservatives not to be deterred if their opponents on the left unfairly called them racists — something he rightly believed happened all the time. Indeed, one of the

Beto O’Rourke Just Showed Everyone
How To Lose An Election In Texas

There are two ways to guarantee you’ll lose a statewide election in Texas: campaign for abortion or campaign against guns. Texas Democrats accomplished the first in 2014, when Wendy Davis lost the governor’s race to Greg Abbott by 20 points. Now they’re determined to do the second. Beto O’Rourke, the photogenic Democratic congressman from El Paso hoping to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in November, declared at a SXSW event Monday that there’s no reason an AR-15 should be sold to a civilian. According to Politico’s Michael Calderone, O’Rourke, who’s not shy about swearing on the campaign trail, added, “I have

Hillary’s Bitter Clinging

Bitter clingers. The 47 percent who are takers. You’d think after Barack Obama and Mitt Romney got burned for coining these appellations, ambitious pols would learn not to talk about the opposing party’s voters that way. Both those comments were said before private audiences and leaked out. But Hillary did them better by offering her diagnosis of the “basket of deplorables” at a public campaign event. And she refuses to learn even still. At a conference in India yesterday she confidently explained the 2016 election this way: I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. . . .

The State Department said that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was informed of his own firing by President Donald Trump´s Tuesday morning tweet announcing the news. The secretary said that he was "unaware of the reason" for his firing, which he said he did not discuss with President Donald Trump before Trump announced his ouster on Tuesday morning. "The Secretary had every intention of staying because of the critical progress made in national security," Under-Secretary of State Steve Goldstein said in a statement. "The Secretary did not speak to the President and is unaware of the reason, but he is

Mike Schultz will have the honor of being the U.S. flag bearer at the Paralympics opening ceremony in Pyeongchang on Thursday. As the International Olympics Committee states, the individual who takes on this meaningful role embodies the nation´s values, Olympic and Paralympic ideals, and is an inspiration for future generations. Schultz checks off all of these boxes. As a snocross racer growing up, he was dubbed "Monster Mike" for his fearlessness on the tracks. But in 2008, his world turned upside down after a devastating accident cost him his left leg. A decade later, he has turned tragedy into triumph—he´s

Democrats dream of turning Texas into a blue state, thereby cementing the far left’s hold on America for the foreseeable future. They hope to make progress toward that goal this year, and they were counting on a blue wave of enraged liberals to emerge in Tuesday’s primaries as a harbinger of victory in November. They even hope that their man Beto O’Rourke can drive Ted Cruz out of the Senate. But no such blue wave emerged on Tuesday. True, just over one million votes were cast in the Democratic Senate primary, which O’Rourke won with 62% of the vote. But well

Hillary Clinton will bring home a most undesired souvenir from India - a fractured wrist. The former Secretary of State injured her right hand on Tuesday, after slipping in a bathtub at the palace where she was staying in Jodhpur. Doctors were called to the Umaid Bhawan Palace and diagnosed the 70-year-old with a sprain, advising her to rest which forced her to cancel plans to visit the Mehrangarh Fort that evening. But the pain only worsened, and by Wednesday morning she decided to get her hand checked out at Goyal Hospital. Doctors there administered a CT Scan and an X-ray of Clinton´s wrist,

Sheet happens. Two days after a nasty fall in a hotel bathtub left Hillary Clinton with a broken wrist, the former Secretary of State was spotted making the best of a bad situation while continuing her tour of India. Hillary was seen in Jaipur on Thursday where she appeared to be adopting an out-of-sight and out-of-mind approach to her recent injury by wearing a kurta that had been customized to make one sleeve longer than other. To achieve this, the loose and flowing top was wrapped tightly around Hillary´s torso, transforming the once comfortable piece into a more constricting look complete

Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire. Sessions announced the decision in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department Inspector General and the FBI office that handles discipline had found “that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.” He said based on those findings and the recommendation of the department’s senior career official, “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe

Ladies and gentlemen, according to Page Six, actor Matt Damon plans to move his family over to Australia to protest President Trump.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announces Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has been fired. Inspector General Michael Horowitz recommended a review by the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility. The referral was based on IG Horowitz interviewing McCabe and identifying McCabe was lying about his instructions to FBI Communication Director Michael Kortan leaking to media on his behalf. Mike Kortan, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok then proceeded to leak to Devlin Barrett (WSJ and WaPo), along with other journalists, with approvals from Andrew McCabe. After IG Horowitz referred McCabe’s false statements to the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), the OPR investigated and

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Thursday made a final pitch to the Justice Department about why he should not be fired just 72 hours before his retirement, leaving Attorney General Jeff Sessions to decide the matter with a deadline rapidly approaching. McCabe did not meet with Sessions, who was traveling Thursday, but with other senior officials, including Scott Schools, the most senior career attorney in the department. He arrived around 1 p.m. and departed four hours later. The decision could be consequential for McCabe´s financial future, as if he is fired, he could lose significant retirement benefits. The
