Why Bob Hall is the Right Choice for Texas Senate District 2

BOB HALL FOR - CINDY BURKETT AGAINST - email graphicThe Hunt County GOP held a debate for GOP Primary candidates on Feb. 1. I extracted two video segments featuring Sen. Bob Hall and Rep. Cindy Burkett debating the issues of School Choice and Pro-Life. View this portion of the debate between Bob Hall and Cindy Burkett below.

 


Ms. Burkett’s idea of school choice is to limit choices between schools within a school district and she points to the Garland ISD for her example. She conflates charter schools with private schools, church schools, and home schools. It’s helpful to understand that charter schools have nothing to do with the School Choice issue; charter schools are public schools.

School Choice is Item #147 on the Texas State GOP Platform A which states:

We believe that all children should have access to quality education. We support the right to choose public, private, charter, or home education. We support the distribution of educational funds in a manner that they follow the student to any school, whether public, private, charter or home school through means of tax exemptions and/or credits.

Thousands of Texas delegates (including me) from 254 counties approved the platform. The platform serves as a standard by which Republican voters can evaluate lawmakers.

Rep. Burkett repeatedly uses the word “accountability” in her arguments AGAINST School Choice.

Senator Bob Hall points out the obvious, with respect to accountability. Of the 50 of these United States, Texas public schools rank 43rd, nationally. Texas families deserve the freedom to choose what is best for their children.

On the pro-life issue, both are in this camp, but Senator Hall is rated 100% pro-life whereas Rep. Burkett is rated 73%. I ask: can a woman be 73% pregnant?

Rep. Burkett fought the Shaeffer Amendment that would have protected ALL baby Texans in the womb by prohibiting late-term abortions. You can hear for yourself her justification for defeating this truly pro-life legislation.

Why do I pray for California? I believe in miracles.

California is a mess and I sense God is moving Heaven and earth to turn that great state around.

Liberal policies declare California a ‘sanctuary state’. Sanctuary for whom? Consider the case of illegal alien Luis Bracamontes who admits to killing two deputies in 2014. In court before a judge, he recently pledged to break out of prison and kill even more. Read more via this link: http://cbsloc.al/2DGD5Dn

california sow the wind reap the whirlwind

Socialist policies have made the state a wasteland of homelessness. The homeless include groups of mentally ill people, unemployed workers, young adults seeking fame and fortune in Hollywood, and university students. Learn more from the California State University, Sacramento – 2017 Point-in-Time Count.

Progressive (godless) California leaders have sown the wind and they shall surely reap the whirlwind.

So, what’s next?

What I call warm-and-fuzzy folks point to 2 Chronicles 7:14 which says, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” That’s all it takes. Right? Wrong. Read this promise in context, starting with the preceding verse 13: ““When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

The message is this: God uses life-threatening disasters to capture the attention of his children in order to turn them to Him.

At present, the North Korean tyrant Kim Jong Un threatens to launch nuclear bombs carried by intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM). Wildfires, floods, eight active volcanoes, and the collision of tectonic plates pose life-threatening dangers.

It’s entirely possible that spiritual revival could erupt any moment now, but it seems more probable God will use a natural disaster to move his people to their knees.

How do I pray for Californians? I plead for a replay of the Azusa Street Revival and the Jesus Movement. I ask God to remember the Christian minority and to be merciful for their sakes. Will you join me?

What Everyone Needs to Know About the first duty of all governments

Mesa, Arizona police officer Philip Brailsford was one of a six-member SWAT team responding to a report by someone who reported seeing, through the window of a La Quinta hotel room, Daniel Shaver of Granbury, Texas brandishing a rifle.

Actually, Daniel and a woman guest were sharing an alcoholic beverage as he showed a couple of lawful airguns.

For more details view below a video of the death of an unarmed citizen at the hands of officer Philip Brailsford.

Also, read this commentary by Texas Peace Officer Vinson Ousley: Commentary: I’m a law enforcement officer. What happened to Daniel Shaver was a crime.

what happened to daniel shaver was a crime

The death of Daniel Shaver was a gross miscarriage of justice, a crime.

While chairman of our local housing authority a minor problem with a fire alarm system in our four-story apartment building. It was simply a loss of signal to the fire department but otherwise fully functional.

The fire department people insisted we replace our old system with a $60,000 + digital system. I asked an official of the department why he wanted this very costly item. He said he wanted to know that it’s safe for his firefighters to enter the building.

Initially angry, I was able to contain my emotions until after hanging up the phone. Immediately, I related the conversation to my wife. My emotions were high, to the point of tears. I asked, “When those New York firemen rushed into the World Trade Center, did they ask anyone if it was going to be safe?”

(PS – I was able to get the old fire alarm system repaired for $3,500, including a spare part.)

I see police officers in two camps: Peace officers and law enforcement officers. Mesa police officer Philip Brailsford falls into the latter camp.

The Unanimous Declaration of Independence embodies the principles, the foundation, upon which our framework of governance, the Constitution, rests.

Let’s focus on the second paragraph of that Declaration:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…

The foremost constitutional duty, job number one, of all police officers is to “secure these rights”; the Right to Life heads the list. The Mesa SWAT team miserably failed Daniel Shaver.

Peace officers understand their duty to secure the rights of all whom they encounter.

With respect to these three key issues, Cindy Burkett consistently opposed the GOP platform and she aligned herself with House Speaker Joe Straus.

Texas Right to Life PAC reports Cindy Burkett as down to 72.58% pro-life in 2017. Rounding up, how can a lawmaker be 73% pro-life? Can a woman be 73% pregnant?

A lawmaker is either 100% pro-life (as per the GOP state platform) or the lawmaker is not.

Senator Bob Hall consistently voted 100% in support these three key planks of our GOP platform.

In years past, I block-walked for Cindy Burkett even though I was not in her district.

In the 2018 Republican primary, I will vote to re-elect the true conservative, Bob Hall.

ACLU Treachery Claims 2 Lives

The ACLU lied and manipulated the Judicial branch to create a right to abortion for an illegal-alien teenager. Read the full report from World Net Daily:

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT – ACLU LIED ABOUT ABORTION FOR ILLEGAL-ALIEN TEEN 11-6-2017

Active Judges on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit

According to a brief filed by the Department of Justice, the abortion was rushed to prevent the due process of justice that would have spared the life of the teen’s unborn child.

I applaud Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Department of Justice for standing for life.

Steve Bannon predicted it will take 50 years to fully drain the D.C. swamp and the D.C. appellate court is the poster child for removing leftist federal judges from office. The two charts, one above, the other below, reveal why unborn children will continue to be murdered in the womb.

ACLU treachery claimed two lives: the life of an innocent unborn child and the life of the teen mother who will die a thousand deaths over her lifetime.
