RERfirst — 2018 SAW THE MOST VOTES EVER CAST IN A TEXAS MIDTERM ELECTION (VIDEO)

The biggest story of 2018 may turn out to be the turnout in the 2018 midterm general election in Texas. The increase in the number of voters in the state has been phenomenal since the seminal Tea Party Election of 2010.

The grinding question that must be answered immediately is what is the cause of this parabolic growth in Texas vote tallies? As of yet, RagingElephantsRadio.com has not been able to find anyone with a simple answer. One thing seems to be certain. The growth doesn’t seem to be the result of massive, undetectable voter fraud.

8.33 million votes were cast on November 6, 2018 in Texas. The presidential election of 2016 tallied 8.97 million votes. This is only a falloff of 640,000 votes from a presidential cycle to a midterm were a 40% falloff between the two cycles could be considered typical.

The 8.33 million vote total of 2018 surpasses all vote totals in previous election cycles except the presidential election of 2016. 2018 is the largest vote total ever achieved in a Texas midterm.

The overwhelming majority of the electorate growth in Texas has benefited the Democratic Party candidates in the last eight years. However, 2018 was the high water mark since the 2010 cycle.

After the first Tea Party election of 2010, Republicans were set to occupy 101 seats out of 150, a super majority, in the Texas House of Representatives. This was huge shift in the party balance that saw the previous legislative session with a party balance of 76-74 to the Republicans. Even soon-to-be former Texas Speaker Joe Straus had to acknowledge the power of the Tea Party vote that deepened the tint of the Pink Dome to a soulful robust red.

The historical election of 2010 that had such an impact on the Texas political landscape saw only 4.98 million total votes counted.

From the 2010 midterm to the 2018 midterm, the jump to 8.33 million total votes is a 68% expansion in Texas voters.

RERvideo — MACRON IS RIGHT! THE FRENCH VOTED FOR THEIR MISERY (VIDEO)

When the Yellow Vest Riots began in France back in November, RER’s Apostle Claver was already pointing out the irony of the civil unrest. The greater irony is that French President Emmanuel Macron made a speech to a joint session of the U.S. Congress in 2018 extolling the very policies that have fueled the violent protests.

It may not be accurate to call it hubris when Macron points out that the French people voted for the policies that he wants to impose.

As pointed out by Apostle Claver, the more important thing is that the Democrats want to impose these policies on Texans, and all Americans. The sad fact is that a majority of Americans are voting for the implementation of these policies that are threatening lives and jobs in the socialist utopia of France.

“Vive la France!”

RERvideo — WHY A BROTHA FROM NEW YORK CITY MOVED TO TEXAS AND BECAME A CONSERVATIVE (VIDEO)

RERvideo — WHY A BROTHA FROM NEW YORK CITY MOVED TO TEXAS AND BECAME A CONSERVATIVE (VIDEO)

Eight years ago, Ricardo Regalado couldn’t get ahead financially in New York City. No matter how hard he tried, Ricardo kept falling deeper into the lack-of-money abyss.

While still living in the northeast, Ricardo was totally impulsive and flew to San Antonio to watch a Spurs game. That adventure on a whim opened his eyes to the difference in cost of living from New York and Texas.

After researching further and debating with himself, Ricardo hopped on a jet a moved to Houston.

Perhaps the most amazing part of his story is how the move led him to become political conservative.

He calls himself the “Texas Pioneer”. Like some 21st-century Harriet Tubman, five friends have followed him from the blue northeast to Texas based upon his testimony.

RERfirst – FOX USES DISGRACED TEXAS GOP POLITICAL COUPLE TO STAGE “FAKE NEWS” (VIDEO)

The December 9, 2018 Watters’World program that airs on the Fox News Channel, featured a married couple to counter incendiary comments made by celebrity Barbra Streisand.  Streisand stated that women who voted for Trump were following the orders of their husbands. 

Fox News host, Jesse Watters, introduced Chris and Holly Turner as a married couple that defies the Streisand statement.  However, Watters never reveals the controversial background of the Turners during any portion of the segment. 

Chris and Holly Turner are Republican political consultantsfrom Texas. 

The Turners first came to attention of the Texas political scene when Holly ran for state representative for house district 47 in 2010.  The district covers southwest Travis County. It was a three-way primary and Chris was her campaign manager.

During that first Tea Party primary, eventual winner Paul Workman, accused Holly Turner of being a “carpet bagger” and taking a homestead exemption on a property in Fort Worth.  The Turners had just recently moved to the Austin area.  As Politifact discovered, the property actually was in the name of her husband, Chris Turner.

Holly Turner came in second to Workman in the 2010 primary, 39% to 36%.  Workman won 54% to 46% in the runoff.

Just one election cycle later, the Turners found themselves in a legitimate political scandal and legal jeopardy.

In 2012 the Texas political consulting firm, Murphy Turner,was sued by the conservative political action committee, EmpowerTexans, for copyright infringement.  EmpowerTexans also operates under the name of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility.  Several state representatives that hired the Turners were subpoenaed to testify in the case.  

Conspiring with her brother, Holly Turner created the Texansfor Fiscal Accountability PAC.  It was used to fool voters by issuing phony endorsements for their Straus-ian candidates.  The lawsuit ended with the Murphy Turner Firm apologizing to Michael Quinn Sullivan and EmpowerTexans, and the firm became defunct around the time of the suit settlement.

Soon-to-be former Texas Speaker of the House Joe Straus hired the Murphy Turner Firm to do advertising work during his reelection campaigns.

The fact that Fox News and Watters’ World used the Turners insuch an opaque fashion puts the segment into the category of propaganda, or “fakenews”.

RERvideo — DEMOCRATS PREFER $7 DOLLAR PER GALLON GAS

Since the Thanksgiving Day weekend, Apostle Claver Kamau-Imani of RagingElephantsRadio.com, has been addressing the rioting in France.  What started out as thousands in yellow vests flooding the streets of Paris, has now spread throughout the country, and to every major French city.

In this time of showing the world how the policies of the left are destined to cause frustration among any population where they are implemented, the leftist political party of America — the Democrats — remain silent on the international new event.

It seems, that regardless of how destructive the policies may be, the Democrats prefer the outcome of $7.50 per gallon gas and higher taxes.

RERfirst — CHRISTOPHER FILES LAWSUIT TO STOP DRAG QUEEN STORY TIME (VIDEO)


Houston-based, conservative culture warrior, Tex Christopher has filed a lawsuit in district court to stop the “drag queen story time” events for children at the Houston Public Library (HPL).

Christopher has risen to prominence in Houston for leading efforts against former Mayor Annise Parker and her neo-morality H.E.R.O. ordinance.  More recently, Christopher has focused his efforts on stopping the proliferation of sex robot parlors in Houston.

For several months, HPL has been scheduling “drag queen story time” events and Houston social conservatives have been fighting back.  The next event is scheduled on 27 December at the Montrose Branch of HPL.

Christopher’s lawsuit argues that the government is in violation of the First Amendment of the United States Constitution by promoting a religion.  He believes that the neo-morality movement is actually the practice of human secularism and is a religious sect.

In his interview on RagingElephantsRadio.com, Christopher stated of his motivation, “The library and the mayor have said that, look, this is going to be the official religion of our city, of our government, of our state.  The official party is going to be the Democrat Party.  I’m the peson that’ll tell someone to ‘back off’. Enough is enough.  And, it’s wrong.  And, I’m calling you out on it.

“We’re taking you to court.”

RERvideo — TEXAS ELECTORATE HAS GROWN FASTER THAN THE POPULATION (VIDEO)

Two elections in the last decade have dramatically changed the political landscape in Texas. The population of Texas has continued to climb making the Texas the fasting growing state in the nation.

The 2010 midterm general election is famous for the Tea Party surge that propelled Republicans to previously unmatched majorities under the Pink Dome in Austin.

The 2018 midterm general election produced an incredible surge in total votes cast in Texas.  The dramatic increase in Texas electorate paved the way for Democrats to claw back ground that was lost in 2010.

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that the Texas population grew by 12.6% between the last official population count in 2010, and the summer of 2017.  From the 2010 midterm general election to the 2018 midterm general election, the size of the electorate — the number of votes cast in the election — grew by 67%.

The official population of Texas in 2010 was 25.15 million. by July, 2017 the Texas population had grown to an estimated 28.3 million.

In 2010, 4.98 million votes were cast in the midterm general election.  Comparing apple to apple, the 2018 midterm general election saw 8.33 million votes tallied in Texas.

The high-water mark for votes tallied in Texas was the 2016 presidential election cycle.  Nearly 9 million people voted.  The official number published by the Texas Secretary of State is 8.98 million votes.

RERvideo — THEY’RE RIOTING IN FRANCE AND THEIR PRESIDENT WANTS TO LECTURE US (VIDEO)

During the Thanksgiving weekend here in Texas, riots were all the rage in gay Paris.

The frogs were having a fit over gas prices and doing property damage over $7.36/gallon fuel.

Back in April of 2018, French President Emmanuel Macron addressed a joint session of Congress. He proceeded to lecture the American government, and the people they represent, on the priority of climate change, the Paris Climate Accord, and the need for government to expand it’s power in order to keep the people from “killing the planet”.

Apostle Claver of RER thinks it was rather cheeky, for Macron to lecture Americans (and, Texans) on governmental policy when his popularity is tanking, his citizens are rioting, and it’s because of the policies that he wants to see the globe to adhere to.
