Education Reforms Emerge As a Point of Contention in Texas Political Contests

In Texas political races all over the state, candidates are being grilled about what they think of sweeping education reforms passed by the legislature last year. While there is pretty much universal agreement that the big reductions in standardized testing were a positive step, there is controversy about changes to graduation requirements that create multiple paths to a high school diploma. The idea, essentially, is that not all kids will go to college so the state will now promote both college readiness as well as career readiness.   Read more »

Barry Smitherman’s Prosecutor Evaluations Show He Never Backed Down, Was One of Best

The Texas Attorney General is the top lawyer in Texas. He defends the state, our laws, our Constitution, and the people. He also prosecutes those who break the laws. With Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott running for Governor, we have a chance to elect a new Texas Attorney General. We need to elect a Texas Attorney General who stands firm on conservative values and who will also be an effective defender and prosecutor.

We already know that Texas Attorney General candidate Barry Smitherman has the conservative values. I have written many articles about what Smitherman believes.

TexasSparkle Interviews Ryan Sitton for Texas Railroad Commissioner

Kathleen McKinley, a blogger for the Houston Chronicle better known as TexasSparkle, said in an interview with Texas Railroad Commission Candidate Ryan Sitton, "I got this thing for engineers. Why? Because they are the smartest people I know." Having come to know Ryan Sitton over the past few months, I don't think I could disagree with her, especially as it relates to him.

It is apparent she really does like engineers. She married one!  She said she tried to talk him into running for office, to no avail, but now she has found an engineer who is willing to do just that - Ryan Sitton.   Read more »

Trolling for Sugar Daddies, the Democrat Women's Way to Advance!

Wendy Davis, the Democratic candidate for Governor of Texas, is a Republican consultant's dream. If the woman isn’t getting her life story wrong, she is telling the world that her paraplegic opponent needs to walk a mile in her shoe.

Wendy Davis is the poster politician for liberalism, and sometimes I wonder if the left truly gets the joke that is Wendy Davis. Consider her lifestyle. We are left with the impression that Ms. Davis rose from living in a trailer park to working her way through Harvard Law School all while raising her daughter.   Read more »

Texas Conservative Review has endorsed Barry Smitherman for Texas Attorney General to succeed Greg Abbott who is running for Governor. Smitherman is currently Chairman of the Texas Railroad Commission and the former Chairman of the Public Utility Commission.

Glenn Hegar Has the Momentum, Endorsed by Tea Parties and Half of State GOP Officials

Glenn Hegar for Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts seems to have all the momentum in the race right now. The Texas Comptroller is one of the few, statewide elected officials. It is not a glamorous position, but it is a very powerful and important position.

The race for Texas Comptroller will not end on the March 4th, 2014 Republican Primary Election Day. The Comptroller’s race will likely go to a runoff along with the Texas Attorney General, LT Governor, and Railroad Commissioner races.

Glenn Hegar is certainly beginning to stand out among the crowd in his race.

Hillary move over, Wendy’s coming

Remember the heroine of Planned Parenthood, Wendy Davis? Of the pink tennis-shoed, Texas filibustered, right to kill late-term babies fame?

We now know that wannabe Texas governor Wendy Davis essentially MADE UP her life story about being a single mom and putting herself through Harvard.

Breitbart reported Wendy’s skewed “Facts.”

So let’s take a look-see:   Read more »
