I shared with the audience how that story was so influential — seeing the story of men who made the stand for liberty and freedom, not surrendering in the face of the enemy. All of this, even though those men faced incredible odds, and they fought to their deaths. I challenged the folks of Ellis County to take heart and assume their position on the ramparts of The Alamo facing Texas today. I reminded them that the county where I reside, just north of them, Dallas County, had gone nearly 60 percent for Hillary Clinton in the November election. I reminded them that cities named after great Texas patriots such as Sam Houston, Stephen F. Austin, and Col. William Travis…and the home of The Alamo seemed to no longer embody the true spirit of Texas, its real heart.
Little did I know that within a day, all of this would come together in a very disturbing fashion.
As reported by the very liberal progressive Dallas News, part of the Dallas Morning News, “Immigrant advocates packed a Dallas County commissioners meeting Tuesday, turning a vote welcoming unauthorized immigrants into hours of emotional, sometimes tense debate over so-called sanctuary cities.
The “Welcoming Communities” resolution, which is not legally binding, passed 4-1. The commission’s sole Republican, Commissioner Mike Cantrell, voted against it. The symbolic resolution says that unauthorized immigrants are “integral members to our community.” It calls for local law enforcement to “end nonessential collaborations” with the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement.Cantrell said that language “paints a bull’s-eye on Dallas County” for President Donald Trump and Gov. Greg Abbott to take away federal and state funding that the county needs. Both Trump and Abbott have called for punishing sanctuary cities, a loose term they have used to describe jurisdictions that don’t fully cooperate with ICE. “
Commissioner Elba Garcia, who moved to America from Mexico decades ago, said she introduced the resolution to calm immigrants and make them feel safe in Dallas County. She said local law enforcement officers have told her they want to forge trust with immigrants — not deport them. “The purpose of this resolution is the dream — the American dream,” Garcia said. But she stopped short of specifying what she meant by ending “nonessential collaborations” with ICE.
“We don’t want to do the federal government’s work. ‘Nonessential’ means exactly that.” Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, in a statement, said he agreed with the “overall tone” of the resolution and wanted Dallas to remain a “welcoming, tolerant city.” But he shared Kleinman’s concerns about the “ramifications of any misperception” that Dallas police aren’t cooperating with ICE. He said they are and will continue to do so, regardless of the county’s resolution.
State Sen. Don Huffines, a Republican representing northern Dallas County, urged the county in a news release to “immediately rescind” the resolution, which he called “dangerous, irresponsible, and reprehensible.””Dallas County should focus on keeping Texans safe from criminal aliens instead of playing politics and taking jabs at the laws that they swore an oath to uphold,” Huffines said. “The resolution is irrational, and it is an affront to millions of law-abiding legal immigrants.”
This is where I live, and honestly I would NEVER have imagined such a thing happening in the state of Texas. However, this is the goal of the progressive socialist left, to take over large urban centers and their governing bodies…such as Dallas and Dallas County.
For the folks in everyday small town Texas, where you find the true heart of Texas, it may just be a matter of time before these large urban centers such as Dallas, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, and El Paso grow so large, and defiant of the rule of law, that it tips the electoral composition of a state like Texas.
Who would have imagined that such a resolution would come from a city in Texas…not California, not New York, not Illinois, but Texas. Now, in all fairness, the Texas State Senate this week was working on legislation against so called “sanctuary cities.” There is no debate about the American dream being attainable for citizens, and that is the operative word — citizens — those legal, law abiding folks who were born here or sought out their citizenship by obeying the law. What the Dallas County Commission has stated is that they have little or no regard for the “Heart of Texas.”
This is the danger of the open borders movement; it will erode the respect of our rule of law, our national and state constitutions. This faux emotional argument is nothing more than the attempt by the liberal progressive socialist left to undermine the very fabric of our Republic…and it’s even happening in Texas — a place that was once a Republic on its own before becoming an American state.
As a resident of Dallas County, I fully support Governor Greg Abbott and President Donald Trump cutting off state and federal funding. There must be consequences to those who would thumb their noses at our laws. We cannot afford to allow this type of misguided legislative belligerence and lawlessness to happen in our nation. I have no issue with immigrants — here legally — and I certainly do not support criminal illegal aliens who pose a very clear and present danger to law abiding citizens. Who are these individuals on the Dallas County Commission to declare the protection of the sovereignty of America and Texas as “nonessential collaboration?” Who are these individuals to determine that the rule of law of the United States, our Constitution, has no standing in Dallas County?
You want to know why the left has been losing elections all over America? Here is an example. You want to know why the left will continue to lose elections in America…here is why. There can no longer be any debate; the liberal progressive left has become totally unhinged and will stop at nothing to undermine our society.
The left loves the word “fairness,” but where is the “fairness” in hard working Texans — Americans citizens — having their tax dollars usurped to subsidize and provide benefits to those here illegally? The American progressive socialist left is showing us who they truly are, and why they represent a danger to the future and survival of this Constitutional Republic.
However, the real lesson to be learned is where did these four people on the Dallas County Commission come from? It lets us know that our local and municipal elections have consequences and there needs to be more attention paid to these electoral processes, just as the School Board is so very important.
All across America we need to take back our city councils, county commissions, and school boards from the deranged and demented leftists. We must no longer disregard these local and municipal elections; they do have dire consequences. Just think about Kate Steinle, and what the county commission here in Dallas County just admitted: “unauthorized immigrants” — the new politically correct moniker —are fine by them, and if there’s a Kate Steinle incident, so what?
For the left, lawless behavior that endangers Texans and all Americans, is more vital, even honorable, than the real honorable action of making a stand for liberty, freedom, and the rule of law — which is what those men did at The Alamo. Spartan King Leonidas stood before tyranny and said “Molon Labe” centuries ago. In October 1835, the Mexican cavalry wanted their cannon back…the Texians of the town of Gonzales replied with the English translation of the Greek words Molon Labe: “Come and take it.” The Dallas County Commission is truly no different than the invading Persians or the Mexicans who preferred the surrender of liberty to tyranny.
The response must once again be, Molon Labe…Come and take it!
That is very good news for America and especially for Kentucky BUT (there always seems to be a "but",doesn't there?) BUT the ACLU, FFRF, and the other anti-Christian (and thus anti-American) groups will get their panties in a wad and bring suit to stop Kentucky schools from "forcing" religion on its students.
Since the only hold that the Fed has over the schools, AND the states for that matter, is the withholding of Federal (meaning OUR) money so the states can tell the Federal courts to go pound sand if only the state and local politicians would operate on a balanced budget rather than on the fiscal model of deficit finance.
Texas larger Cities have been seized by Democrats, where they govern, you see chaos. While many, many have moved from other States, to enjoy the Freedom of Texas They forgot to leave their tacky Politics behind. The things they fled from, they brought with them, infesting our Neighborhoods with their liberal Agendas. The Republican Party seems more to concentrate on State & National Elections, but do very little to control & financially support Local Candidates. Inviting Illegals to come to your area, means more Crime, huge expenses,interruption of schooling, additional costs in the area of housing, medical care etc. They are a huge drain on the economy while bringing nothing but poverty, and an ignorance of our Country's Cultures and History. They come and they feel "Entitled" to benefits that Texans only, should be entitled to. Refusing to learn English, assimilate, they become a burden, and things have to lower to their level. It is crazy to take on the burden and the danger, and dilute our society with these invaders. The Republican party had better get to work in our State to run their own Candidates, and support them fully, with enough press and money to get them elected. The Dems pour money into Local Races, and if we plan to defend out State then the Republican Party had better step up & declare themselves.
Dear Commissioner Garcia,
"Immigrants" - Yes. Illegal 'immigrants' - No.
What part of breaking the laws of this country don't you understand??
Molon Labe! As a Dallas born and current resident, i too am outraged by this shit show
of our so called elected officials. If they do not comply with the federal government, and
the state government, all hell should fall on them. I voted for Trump, and i will continue to
request, as peacefully as possible, for the rule of law, This typed of city action you describe
here is nothing but politcal hacks posturing to be popular. Little do they know, that they are
hurting their own folks, who voted them in. I cannot compete with the bargains that the poor
from down south can, and have suffered for decades since NAFTA was passed, as my contracting
has been "outbid" again and again by the overflow of cheap labor from south of the border.
And God help you if you get in a car accident with someone with no license who cuts and runs,
as has happened to me three times in the last 15 years; the police don't want to fool with that!
What happened to the law of the land? If you get pulled over, and don't have the right credentials,
you should go right to jail, period. That is what happens to citizens, and i better not hear about
any special treatment for folks who snuck into this state anymore, because i know what to do about
it now. We have a Governor who cares about actual citizens, and a President who loves this nation,
and they both believe in the rule of law. Thank God, and pass the ammunition.
Well stop and look around. Libs from CA have been pouring into Texas at the speed of light. They totally screwed up their own state, now they have Texas in their sorry sites.
We can not sit back and wait for the left to 'Come and Take It'. We must actively engage the enemies of our Constitutional Republic immediately and consistently until they cease to exist. We can not rely upon one victory too carry the day... we must be vigilant and decisive regarding the defeat of the Democrat Party... along with the RINO"s and Establishment in both political Parties.
God forbid that war should be forced upon us ... be should it come, let the enemies of our Republic know we do not run... Our colors may be faded and old, but they remain bold and true to the courage and heritage of their forefathers... We will not surrender to the rhetoric of lesser men nor too the treasonous cohorts of the tyrant. Rather, we shall mount up with wings as eagles, too strike at the very heart of those who would bring such calamity upon our homes and families... we shall with vengeance rain down fire from the heavens; so furious, that no man may hide from its consuming heat.
For we are not deceived by the ill words of man or the tyrants plan... Let the Patriot mark well the gate of our enemies... They are not our neighbors, nor misguided fools, or dupes for those who hold the strings of power. The Patriot is not fooled, nor will he spend his energy, striking out in vain against the lesser minions of the tyrant. Rather, the Patriot shall seize those who thought to live and operate behind the curtains of anonymity ... believing... their gated communities and safe houses, would protect them well .... but, they shall not. Even as they cry out, for the rocks to cover them, they shall have no hiding place in the Earth.
Let the plutocracy, the new age aristocracy, understand... They can not hide from the informed Patriot. They shall surely pay for their crimes. It is only a matter of time... then, justice shall be served; if not by tribunes, by the sword, by patriots true, whose will is the tempered steel, of their resolve, and justices blade of retribution.
Therefore, let it be known to all... there is no reprieve for the wicked, no hidden reserve, no place of refuge, for the world is subject to the ultimate Judge of all things... and the true Patriot is the agent of His vengeance in the earth... His arm of justice among men.
That is why one must become active..become a precinct committeeman and work to get the right folks on your ballots...the demoncraps have this down to a science...we conservatives have been silent and in the background for too long.....all of us need "hands on deck" so to speak. Only as a united front, with God as our guide can we defeat this enemy of the state
We The People are getting pushed out by the democrats, liberals, progressives, who are all one in the same just with different names so as to confuse US as to who and what they are doing.
Distroying The United States of America.
Dissenting judges rip 10 Commandments ruling
|Well, it has happened again.
A small town with a Ten Commandments monument on the lawn of city hall for decades has to remove it because a court agrees with a couple complainers who say it violates their First Amendment rights.
It happens so regularly, it hardly seems worth mentioning ... until you see these two dissenting federal appellate judges rip it to shreds ...
