Chris Carmona’s Campaign Kick-Off

By Vladimir Davidiuk A campaign to retake Texas House District 148 began Wednesday, March 12, in a quiet, unassuming restaurant on Houston’s north side. With the huge sign out front announcing the campaign kick-off reception, Chris Carmona’s effort to wrest the district from decades of neglect was formally launched. The largest private event room at […]

Defending Life When Opposition Turns Further Left

By Chris Carmona It seems the anti-life crowd has moved the debate about abortion to a rather absurd new place. Instead of sticking to their “convictions” and simply being pro-choice when it comes to abortion, they are now debating openly the unequivocal murder of a child after it has been delivered from the womb. A […]

Texans overwhelmingly support Greg Abbott on Voter ID

It seems like the topic that never ends. I really haven’t thought much about it since the Supreme Court ruling came down requiring Congress to rework Section 4, other than hearing Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott say that it was going to go into effect immediately. But then I saw this “op-ed” featured on the […]

Shoreacres Council Meeting 6-10

Well, it was standing room only again for the new council’s first meeting. Instead of B-Y-O-Chair, it should have been B-Y-O-Cot because it was a looong meeting.

Shoreacres voters take new direction, ousting incumbent council members

I rarely write about my little home city of Shoreacres because I live here and people get mighty upset when I say something they don’t agree with. But Saturday’s election is an example of what happens when incumbent politicians either do not listen to the citizens or are perceived as not listening to the citizens. […]

Will we let more cowbell deliver Harris County to the Left?

On the heels of David Jennings’ pointed article on Chris Busby’s recent experience before the Harris County Republican Party Vacancy Committee, Chris Busby’s follow-up, and buzz and comments among activists, is there more to say?  Yeah.  Lots.  Let’s keep talking. There’s always tension between political activists, and their party’s candidates and officeholders.  Activists advance principles.  […]

Harris County Republican Party: Circle the wagons and fire on the count of 3!

Too bad that they are choosing to point their guns inward instead of outward. In arguably the most bizarre political attack of a bizarre, very long election season in Harris County, Sen. Dan Patrick and former Tax Assessor Collector Paul Bettencourt are using the raw emotions of a few losing candidates and their supporters to […]
