President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., has withdrawn from a fundraiser for Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush in New York because of criticism toward his father, pres. Trump, by the Bush family. Trump Jr. had cautioned George P. in recent weeks that he would not be able to publicly support him if his father Jeb Bush continued to criticize the President.
Yesterday, Monday, June18, Jeb Bush tweeted, "Children shouldn't be used as a negotiating tool. @realDonaldTrump should end this heartless policy and Congress should get an immigration deal done that provides for asylum reform, border security and a path to citizenship for Dreamers."
This is an article written by my friend Chris Fails in response to an article written by Duke Machado titled “End the Libertarian Takeover in Texas GOP”. Apparently some folks think it's bad to support individual political and economic freedom and liberty. The state GOP convention will be a contest between grassroots constitutional conservatives and Establishment agenda donors and operatives.
San Antonio mayor Ron Nirenberg continues to say that his city government is transparent and inclusive, however, that’s very difficult to believe when so many city policy decisions are made behind closed doors. For example, the city council went into “secret session” to discuss the city ordinance, which would require all private employers in the city to grant paid sick leave to all full time employees. Councilman Greg Brockhouse said, "This may affect every employee and business owner in San Antonio and they must be included in the debate. As we have learned in the past, decisions made without key stakeholders erode the public’s trust.
KTSA radio host Trey Ware spoke to Mayor Ron Nirenberg about the city’s method for creating a budget and also he answered the questions of whether SAPD Chief McManus has done any wrong. SA mayor Nirenberg continues defend McManus for his handling of a human smuggling case last December 2017. Several SB-4 complaints were filed with the Texas state attorney general’s office against the City and the Chief, but Nirenberg insists that there is no investigation.
Rumors from Texas AG Paxton’s office have claimed that “no real action” was being taken against the City. Perhaps this could be true. The City of San Antonio, although tightly under Democrats’ political control, seems to have some Republican support in Austin and in Washington.
Addressing the illegal alien smuggling issue is problematic when Democrats excuse it and reward it, and Republicans don’t do anything about it.

On Monday, June 11, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Ohio’s state law that allows them to clean their voter rolls of inactive voters. Republicans cheer it, and Democrats cried foul.
The Court ruled 5-4 that Ohio voters who have not voted in two years can be flagged, sent a confirmation notice, and if they fail to respond and don't vote within the next two years, they can be removed from the rolls. The process is one of two methods that Ohio officials use to identify voters who are no longer eligible to vote due to a change of residence (or possible death).
Democrats and liberals were upset, and called it “discriminatory because they seem to want anyone, everyone, anywhere, and everywhere to vote. Republicans and conservatives said this law helps to have more fair elections and to discourage voter fraud.
