Perhaps that’s not the takeaway his public address intended, but it’s true. Texas has plenty of permanent experience dealing with illegal border crossings. Changing administrations often change policies and procedures. Witnessed in 2019 by all, influxes and surges at the southern borders are recurring events and the reactionary process obviously still needs serious adjustments. 2021 has become the perfect year for Texas Governor Greg Abbott to highlight the failure of his administration to properly and humanely find a resolve to this repetitive issue. It is on the federal radar as a hot-button platform, therefore requiring a team effort between states…

Well, well, well. Texas residents continue to struggle with home repairs, insurance claims, and meeting basic needs. Listening to Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s press conference Tuesday might give the impression that COVID has all but disappeared in the state. It hasn’t. The statewide mask order will be gone on Wednesday, March 10. All statewide orders will be gone. Personal responsibility will be the only reigning consideration.

The current Texas governor gave no mention to how this mandate revocation should coincide with federal mask mandate orders. They don’t. This is just days after putting aside partisanship in a meeting with President…

Politics and profits over people

The independent power supply system for Texas is proving to be a massive failure. Millions of ERCOT (Electric Reliability Council of Texas) customers are stuck in their homes due to Arctic weather systems stretching southward. This push from the north brings icy and treacherous driving conditions to much of the state. Staying home has become a normal activity for many per pandemic situations, but most people in Texas have not experienced these record below-freezing temperatures before, and certainly not while being without power. 90% of everyone that has an electric bill in the state of Texas is a customer of…


The final confirmation of President Elect Joe Biden is under way, but current President Donald J. Trump has called for wildness ahead of this event in Washington D.C. Several crazed fans and many groups such as the ‘proud boys' are converging on the streets outside of the Capitol. There is no shortage of chaos.

Police, though not all adorned in riot gear, have asserted force amongst the growing crowds. Social media posts from protesters suggest a shift in support for the thin blue line and videos confirm this twist.

Why would so many aggressive people choose to wildly intimidate a…


Is it really what you thought it was?

Millions of Americans are experiencing exactly what it’s like to do business with Donald Trump. Similar to an investor, a bank, or an entire community, the aftermath of whirlwind Trumpian schematic disappointment has left too many Americans holding the short end of the stick. This time, it really stinks.

Month after month of negotiations finally concluded with a bipartisan relief package combined with end-of-year budgeting. The crucial time when citizens need access to federally distributed funds is when this president decided to grandstand on issues such as foreign aid. He has had 3 or more opportunities before now to take…


A national warning

An American dreamboat perfect for the admiration of young women would find the spotlight in the 1970’s. His good looks might have been outdone by his charm and increasing wealth in the 1980’s. Much of America would have their chance to swoon over the real estate tycoon as he often made guest appearances on some of the most highly rated primetime television shows well into the 90’s. He was there when reality TV arrived in the new century and people tuned in weekly to hear him say those infamous two words, “You’re fired!” …


From the White House to Yours

Treachery has been gift-wrapped and hand-delivered by the nastiest of American politicians. Millions of people hang on to the hope of any kind of federal government action and aid, not simply for a decent Christmas, but for a place to live when it’s over. Unscrupulous politicians are playing a harried game of chess where Americans, and their votes, are not even as valuable as the pawns, the board, or the box the game comes in.

The most recent occurrence is from newly Trump appointed Secretary of Defense, Chris Miller. He has halted all transition briefings with the confirmed President Elect…
