Texas’ woke capital, Austin, is in the midst of a policing crisis with over 300 vacancies and cops quitting because they feel disrespected, multiple sources tell The Post. “We’re right there with Portland and Seattle and San Francisco as being one of those places where if you’re at all conservative or in law enforcement, it’s become a hostile place,” Lt. Brian Moon, who retired last month, told The Post of the city he protected for 23 years. Another 77 officers are expected to retire before the end of March — on top of 264 existing vacancies, according to the Austin Police Association. Austin Police Department’s staffing is so bad,l

Time for governor to send in the state police. Ticket the liberals for minor infractions until they can't take it anymore. If they get nasty, cuff them and haul them in for obstruction.

One consistent truth is liberals are not fair nor tolerant, borne out in the rabid censorship that has become the new norm.

Austin is the home of University of Texas Longhorns. And some well known companies. If it is necessary the Governor will send in the Texas Rangers. Too bad the Keep Austin Wierd crowd rules the roost. Wonder how long it will be until the city named for Stephen Austin is renamed for Beto.

I live in a large county with no tax base to speak of. After hours we only have two deputies on the road; sometimes just one. I kind of like it. They are spending their time on real police calls and dont have time to hassle people for license plate lights out or windshield cracks. For serious crimes the state police will backup, although there aren't many of them either and a much larger area to patrol. Fewer cops = more freedom.

Yeah, #3. Just we wait until the once-right minded Austin, Texas is re-named Beatoville. Funny isn't it how America's university towns grow uber-lefty by the day because of the university uber-lefty faculty who effectively brainwash our young people with their propaganda.

It is too humiliating for the Austin Police not to be allowed to stop street racing, with thugs in their faces asking what they are going to do about it. No police personnel can accept that type of in their face humiliation. The entire Austin Police Dept should walk out!

My husband and I live in this cesspool of über lie-beralism called Austin. It's truly sad, because it's a beautiful part of the state -- right at the foothills of the Texas hill country. But lie-beralism has destroyed everything good about this city and area. Thank God that the state government is here, and so they keep Austin from going full-Seattle. But it's a harder and harder battle to fight. Sadly, we are stuck here two more years while my husband finishes up a contract he has with one of the high-tech companies here. Great money, but it really is hell living here if you are conservative. No representation on the city government at all. They have already offered him a lot of money to stay for 5 years past the current contract, and he politely declined. Our sanity at our ages is just worth more than all the money they can throw at us at this point!!!!

Austin has run off tons of decent folks AND young socialist liberals into outlying counties with smaller towns not just because of lack of support for Law, but also because of extremely high property taxes and rising home values due to inflation and scarcity of places to live where rent is doable and the cost of living is tolerable. That is about to change rapidly as the influx of people and the flood of ILLEGAL ALIENS and homeless living in tents begins to rival Taxifornia. There simply is a vast shortage of places to live and construction will never catch up. This is also happening in the counties surrounding Austin’s Travis County as they do not have the infrastructure needed to take on all of those who live there and commute to Austinnto work

Tucker Carlson released some of the promised Jan. 6 video footage on Monday and it dealt with a variety of subjects that he said showed that we hadn’t been told the truth about what had happened on that day. The first video and contradiction concerned the people at the Capitol. While there were people who were hooligans who broke in, the majority didn’t according to Carlson, coming in after the doors were opened and didn’t do destructive things inside the Capitol, walking peacefully like tourists through the building. Carlson pointed to the “QAnon Shaman” — Jacob Chansley, who got four years for his involvement in the events on Jan. 6.

On Friday, Davidson is scheduled to appear before the House Oversight Chair James Comer (R-KY) and answer questions about why the Treasury has refused to provide the committee with James and Hunter Biden’s 150 suspicious activity reports (SARs) generated by U.S. banks.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Banning preferred pronouns at schools. Mandating K-12 libraries immediately remove and review books that are flagged as inappropriate. Prohibiting majors in gender studies. Florida’s Republican leaders, who have restricted how race and gender are taught in schools and colleges, are poised to go even further in the next few months as they prepare to hand Gov.

Former Republican governor Larry Hogan announced Sunday that he won’t run for president in 2024. Hogan framed his choice as as a self-sacrificial strategy to prevent former president Trump from securing the nomination. Urging the party to break-up with MAGA, Hogan said he was removing himself from the potential competition so as to avoid vote splitting among various GOP rivals and handing Trump the plurality. “To once again be a successful governing party, we must move on from Donald Trump. There are several competent Republican leaders who have the potential to step up and lead,” Hogan wrote in a statement. “But the stakes are too high

Donald Trump was once again the keynote speaker at CPAC this year, with the conservative conference largely being tailored around him since he first entered the White House. After winning the straw poll, the former president took the stage to deliver a speech that can only be described as vintage Trump. How much of an appeal that still has will be a point of contention among Republicans, but no one can deny his ability to work a room. Besides, I think we can all agree that this stuff is hilarious. When Trump is on message and hitting Democrats, he’s at his best. That he’s got the stage presence and ability

As the legend goes, William F. Buckley, the founder of National Review, forged an alliance between social conservatives, Republicans, and Libertarians to fight Communism. He also booted the John Birch Society from the pact. Beginning in 1973, the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) leadership and the dedicated group of activists in its ranks launched the Reagan Revolution. The Buckley coalition elected Ronald Reagan in 1980 and launched 25 years of unmatched prosperity and U.S. hegemony. For the last decade, I attended CPAC to participate in the movement.

OXON HILL, MD. -- Former U.S. President Donald Trump said Saturday that he would continue his third presidential campaign even if indicted. "Absolutely, I wouldn't even think about leaving," Trump told reporters ahead of a speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. Trump is under investigation by prosecutors probing his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election as well as his handling of classified documents, among other issues. Trump delivered the conference's headlining speech Saturday night, telling a cheering crowd of supporters that he was engaged in his "final battle" as he tries to return to the White House.

Attorney General Merrick Garland made an unannounced trip to Ukraine on Friday, according to a Justice Department official, his second trip to the country after Russia invaded a little more than a year ago. The trip was not announced for security reasons, the official said. Garland was invited to Lviv by the Ukrainian prosecutor general, the official said, and joined President Volodymyr Zelensky at the "United for Justice Conference." The official added that Garland "held several meetings and reaffirmed our determination to hold Russia accountable for crimes committed in its unjust and unprovoked invasion against its sovereign neighbor."

The characterization of conservative Republicans as an “ultra-MAGA semi-fascist” menace to democracy was pushed by the partisan J6 committee and was the Democrats’ main sales pitch at the midterms last year.

Walmart says they are closing the stores - which serve as a haven for low-income shoppers across the city - because they were not meeting financial expectations. That said, the closures serve as the latest instance of businesses relocating or closing shop altogether amid a pronounced rise in crime and homelessness.

WASHINGTON — Over the past 11 months, someone created thousands of fake, automated Twitter accounts—perhaps hundreds of thousands of them--to offer a stream of praise for Donald Trump. Besides posting adoring words about the former president, the fake accounts ridiculed Trump’s critics from both parties and attacked Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor and UN ambassador who is challenging her onetime boss for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination. When it came to Ron DeSantis, the bots aggressively suggested that the Florida governor couldn’t beat Trump, but would be a great running mate.
