On Oct 24, the conservative watchdog group, “Project Veritas.” James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas broke a story about an investigation in San Antonio that has implicated some Republicans in important races. Any form of voter fraud and election fraud is illegal, and it should be prosecuted. But was this investigation about justice or political intrigue?
Ballot harvesting is the gathering and submitting of completed absentee or mail-in voter ballots by third-party individuals, volunteers, or workers, rather than submission by the voters themselves directly to ballot collection sites. Project Veritas discovered a woman who was paid to gathering and processing the votes for candidates.
Voter fraud and election manipulation are nothing new to Texas or even American politics. From Boss Tweed in 1860’s New York City to George and Archie Parr in the 1940-60s in south Texas, voter and election fraud have existed.
The national and local news media is upset, claiming that the Biden campaign bus in Texas was harassed by Trump supporters, forcing them to cancel the tour over safety concerns. The most extensive report comes from the liberal/leftist Rolling Stone Magazine, which is better known for reporting on pop artists.
Rolling Stone reporter Peter Wade reported – and the San Antonio Express-News reprinted – about the bus being harassed. Wade said that Travis County Democratic Party Chairman Katie Naranjo tweeted photos and posted on social media that Trump supporters “followed the Biden bus throughout central Texas” and “ran into a person’s car, yelling curse words and threats.”
The Bexar County DA, Joe Gonzales, (a George Soros financed politician) admits he's reviewing all police-related shootings. He should be prosecuting more criminals and investigating Black Lives Matter.
The latest "reexamination" is about a man who pulled a gun on an off duty police officer, was shot. The matter was already investigated and showed that the suspect was shot when he pulled a gun on the officer.
However, the DA and the leftists want a different outcome. Black Lives Matter leaders insist "bad police officers" are being protected by the San Antonio Police Officers Association and by the "white justice system."
Gonzales should stop decriminalizing crimes and lowering the threshold for prosecutions. He and the leftist radicals are demoralizing the police with the eventual goal of abolishing local police departments.
It's "open season" on the police and the justice system, and another dig against law and order. Sadly, the local news media is helping to carry the anti-police message.
The latest attack on law enforcement is regarding their interaction with the mentally ill because of the police handling of some situations, which resulted in deaths. Progressives and the liberal news media are scapegoating law enforcement officers. However, rather than blaming them, some serious questions need to be asked and discussed.
For example, what is an ill person’s and their family’s responsibility to avoid an incident that requires police intervention? Shouldn’t someone, particularly the family, be responsible for making sure they are taking their medications?
Also, shouldn’t the family be responsible for monitoring the potential for violence and alerting medical staff and law enforcement?
If the person is violent, shouldn’t they be hospitalized to protect themselves and the public?
Where is the responsibility for someone who continually stops taking their medications, and where is the responsibility for a family that “protects” a potentially violent person?
We need to build more hospitals to house “repeat offenders” who have shown their unwillingness or inability to be responsible and regularly stop taking their medications. We must also hold families responsible who don’t monitor their mentally ill relatives, especially if they are violent.
Liberals refuse to take responsibility for another failed social policy, and leftists are using these tragedies for their anti-law enforcement agenda.
Police do their best to handle situations with mentally ill people, but there should be health intervention long before it reaches them. Let have an honest discussion about mental health and stop blaming the police.
Hypersensitive leaders in New Braunfels TX, including the local news media and the mayor, are upset because a Black Lives Matter flag was dragged by a Trump-supporter truck at a recent rally. They are apologizing and distancing themselves from the incident because no one wants to be accused of being "racist" by the Left of the news media.
Ironically, leaders and the news media don't say anything about the desecration or burning an American flag. No one seems to be afraid of being openly anti-American.
It shows the upside-down, anti-American values progressives and the news media have. Americans need to stand firm to defend the symbols of freedom and national unity.
