“We’re not considering not relocating it.” That’s what liberal/leftist San Antonio City Councilman Roberto Trevino said regarding the Alamo Cenotaph late on Wednesday, July 18 after a meeting, and a double negative means a positive, which mean the city is planning to move the Cenotaph.
Trevino told people at the meeting that a new draft plan for redeveloping the Alamo will be made public next month, and it will illustrate why the 1930s Cenotaph has to be moved to provide a better visitor experience. Even though proposed plans to relocate the monument have been met with strong opposition, it appears the SA city officials, Texas General Land Office, and the nonprofit Alamo Endowment are not listening and don’t care to listen.
The Cenotaph honors 189 Alamo defenders killed in the 1836 battle and was erected in 1930, however the relocation appears to be similar to the removal of confederate statues by the liberal SA city leaders. Many feel this is another step to revise history and minimize the fight for Texas liberty.
Dallas Republican state representative Jason Villalba continues to show his RINO (Republican-In-Name-Only) attitudes as he called for President Donald Trump’s impeachment on Tuesday, July 17. Villalba apparently suffered an emotional meltdown like many other Democrats, the liberal Media and some Republicans over Trump’s comments about Russian interference in the 2016 American election.
The soon-to-be-former state rep used the “Impeach Trump” hashtag to call for Trump’s removal. He tweeted that “it’s time to change course” if the president chooses Russians over U.S. officials.
President Trump walked back his comments on Wednesday, but that hasn’t been good enough for a lot of his outraged critics. Villalba is in good company with Democrats, the liberal Media and some RINOs who continue to scream, including one that called for a military coup to remove Trump.
The liberal City of San Antonio government along with local Leftist groups and elitist Establishment leaders are pushing one proposal and fighting another. They support a mandatory city sick-leave ordinance that would FORCE businesses to pay for sick-leave for their employees, but opposed three charter amendment petitions that would limit the City’s power.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told city officials on Monday, July 9, that the city council could not act on its own and mandate paid sick time for private-sector employees. As a result, liberal SA Mayor Ron Nirenberg wants to raise the issue to the next level for a city-wide vote.
On Friday, July 13, Mayor Nirenberg announced that the city government would “move forward with the certification of petitions on Aug. 2, and likely council action on Aug. 16.” This means the mandatory sick-leave proposed ordinance will likely be sent to voters in November at the same time when the City will also be voting on charter amendments proposed by the SA Firefighters’ union to limited the city government’s power.
The Democrats reached yet another level of outrageous behavior when Tennessee Democrat congressman Steve Cohen strongly implied that a military coup is needed to save the United States from President Donald Trump. Cong. Cohen’s comments are dangerous because they come from an elected official who has sworn to protect and uphold the Constitution.
Cohen tweeted on Monday, July 16, that America’s “military folks” need to take action against Trump following his joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He asked why military people haven’t taken some action against the president and claimed Trump was in the hands of the enemy. “Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language that seems to suggest a military coup.
The Quiet Texas Democrats - Democrats across the nation have become more obstructionists, un-American, and unhinged in their behavior, but Texas Democrats seem to be very quiet in their rhetoric and behavior. Perhaps they are running away or hiding from their crazed Party leaders and supporters as a strategy in conservative Texas.
While Democrat leaders in D.C. declared their opposition against anyone President Trump nominated before anyone was even nominated, most Texas Democrats have been measured in their comments. They are being quiet and careful.
Non-Texan Democrats have visited the ICE detention centers and demand the abolition of ICE. But Texas Democrats, even those who represent the border communities like Congressman Filemon Vela and Congressman Henry Cuellar, have been careful in their criticism of ICE and border enforcement.
