Biggest county GOP in Texas embraces "Big Data"

The Harris County GOP has acquired rVotes - a perfected version of Voter Action Network (owned by Democrats) and sold to Harris County by the original co-creator of the monster organizing tool.

Local Republicans are no longer resisting technological advancement, but are embracing new communications strategies as a key component of amplifying the consistent Republican message of faith, jobs, and strong defense.   Read more »

Houston Young Republicans (HYR): Constable Hickman discusses Human Trafficking

The issue of human trafficking has been the focus of committees and community advocacy organizations in Houston for the last decade. But little gets done (at least inside City limits) to tackle what many feel is the most egregious human rights travesty of the modern era.

Houston Young Republicans is leading the way in examining the facts, and discovering what kinds of solutions have been implemented elsewhere to slow and even eliminate the abhorrent practice of human trafficking and sex slavery in other major urban centers.   Read more »

Republicans are seeing “Orange” – The “Other” Davis

Many thought the rancorous debate over abortion had quieted down as the next special session presents new opportunities for disagreement on transportation projects.

Not so, says State Rep. Sarah Davis (R-Houston). Republican leadership is engaged in a full-on feud with State Representative Sarah Davis for her break with the party on new regulations of the abortion industry signed into law by Gov. Perry after a month of debate. Even after the bill in question became law, State Rep. Davis is still ruffling feathers in the Harris County GOP – writing editorials claiming that “Government has no business” regulating the abortion industry.   Read more »

Gay Rights and the GOP: Are Republicans Antisocial?

A young, openly gay man appeared before the Harris County Republican Party (HCRP) 'Vacancy Committee' two weeks ago to be considered for an appointment.

The young man's name is Chris Busby, and he is the Vice President of Houston Log Cabin Republicans, a position he stated as a primary qualification during his hearing with HCRP. Busby allegedly did not receive the appointment because he was gay.   Read more »

Texas decides to rein in 'liberal' curriculum

Texas lawmakers have decided they want to rein in a controversial public school curriculum content and management system that at one point taught “Allah is God.”

Most of the state’s classrooms, some 80 percent, are using the CSCOPE program that also has raised eyebrows because educators had refused to allow parents and others to see what being taught.   Read more »

Too Fast, Too Furious

Why is it that with all the talk of preventing gun violence with unconstitutional gun control directives, the president and his odious band of weapons dealers have not been called to account for their illegal arms shipments south of the border, or their giving of arms to al Qaeda resulting in the effective murder of U.S. diplomatic personnel in Libya?

The hypocrisy is breathtaking. But this is an all too familiar pattern for Obama. The fox has taken charge of the henhouse. President Obama sent weapons, untraced

Texas Teaching 'Allah is the Almighty God'

In the 70 percent of Texas public schools where a private curriculum has been installed, students are learning the “fact” that “Allah is the Almighty God,” charge critics of a new online curriculum that already is facing condemnation for its secrecy and restrictions on oversight.

Benghazi - What Happened and Why did General Ham Suddenly "Retire"

Just exactly whatGeneral Carter Ham happened in Benghazi, Libya, in a terror attack that left four Americans dead, is the subject of heated national discussion—especially now that elections are complete. One critical concern is who issued a "stand-down" order under which help was not dispatched to the Americans under fire from al-Qaida.  

Now apparently one person who would be in a position to offer details, Gen. Carter Ham, has allegedly made the decision to "retire."

It's Election Day – Vote Today to Save Our Freedom, Liberty and Nation

My name is John Griffing. I'm an average patriotic American citizen, and I’m alarmed. I’m alarmed at the speed with which our country is giving away its precious freedoms, and I’m alarmed at the role our own president has played in this process. But, above all, I’m alarmed at how little is being done, that could and should be done, to STOP it.

Early on, our president told us he wanted to fundamentally change the United States of America. True to his word, he has worked tirelessly to undermine American sovereignty and economic strength, and to bring his own country to the brink of disaster. There’s no longer any need to build this case....the volume of evidence is
