RERfirst – BLACK DEMOCRAT STATE REP JOHNSON SAYS ALAMO BATTLE WAS FOR TEXAS SLAVERY (VIDEO)

During a hearing of the Texas House Culture, Recreation, and Tourism Committee on Tuesday, April 2, at the State Capitol, State Rep. Jarvis Johnson (D-Houston RER18) made the disgraceful declaration that the battle of the Alamo was for Texans to have slaves.

“…And, it was a battle for the independence of Texas,” said Johnson to a packed committee hearing room.  “The independence for Texans to own slaves.”

The committee was hearing HB1836 being laid out.  Authored and being championed by State Rep. Kyle Biedermann ((R-Fredericksburg RER91), HB1836 addresses the issue of the proposed moving of the Alamo cenotaph. Johnson’s comments were at the conclusion of hours of testimony on the bill with the majority of the testimony easily weighted toward those in favor of the bill, and Rep. Biedermann’s closing of bill layout.  HB1836 would put a halt to any action involving the cenotaph for two years.

During the hearing, attendees said Johnson showed very little interest in the testimony, constantly paid more attention to his mobile phone, and demonstrated the body language of anguish which is visible in the RERvideo.  At one point during Biedermann’s closing in which he is quoting from a letter penned by Col. William Travis and his voice is cracking under the influence of emotion, Johnson throws his face into his hands with a whence.

Attendees reported to RER that Johnson’s comments caused such injury that there were those in the committee room that shed tears, immediately.

At the beginning of his comments, Johnson “played” the audience by suggesting that he could be a possible supporter of the bill.  But, it quickly turned into a cruel, race-baiting tirade as Johnson charged that the names of slaves were being omitted from the cenotaph.

Johnson challenged Biedermann to name any slaves that were at the Alamo, but left off of the cenotaph.  Yet, Johnson couldn’t name any, himself.

This is Johnson’s second term as a state representative.  He filled the seat of longtime Houston rep Sylvester Turner that successfully ran for mayor of Houston in 2015.

RERfirst – ESTIMATED 361,000 ILLEGAL INVADERS HAVE ENTERED TEXAS SO FAR IN FY2019. WHAT WILL THE MARCH NUMBERS BRING? (VIDEO)

RERfirst – ESTIMATED 361,000 ILLEGAL INVADERS HAVE ENTERED TEXAS SO FAR IN FY2019. WHAT WILL THE MARCH NUMBERS BRING? (VIDEO)

National big corporate media tends to report and focus on the total number of apprehensions of United States illegal border crossings.  The vast majority of illegal border crossings obviously occur on the international border with Mexico.

The vast majority of illegal border crossings of the international border with Mexico occur through the five border regions of Texas.  For years, RagingElephantsRadio.com has repeatedly reported on the invasion numbers for Texas that have been frightening.

In just days, the border apprehension numbers for the month of March are expected to be reported.  Big media pundits, and actual border enforcement officials, are predicting that total reported apprehensions will exceed 100,000.  The real questions will be: how many will have crossed illegally into Texas?

So far, for fiscal year2019, 180,988 total apprehensions have been reported by United States Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.  These are the apprehension numbers for just the five border regions of Texas: Big Bend, Del Rio, El Paso, Laredo, and Rio Grande Valley (RGV).

The current apprehension numbers cover the time period of October 1, 2018 through February 28, 2019.  The first five months of the fiscal year is producing an average of 36,198 apprehensions per month on the Texas border. If this pace is maintained, Texans could expect total apprehensions in the state for FY2019 could reach or exceed 434,000.

To get closer to the actual number of illegal border crossings at any point in time for Texas, what border patrol calls “got-aways” must be considered.  In a June 27, 2018 interview on Fox News, Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council said, “We don’t know exactly the number that get by.  But, we do have an estimation. Border patrol agents go out and we count what we call ‘got-aways’. Unfortunately, if you look at it, border patrol agents will tell you that we’re probably 50 to 60 percent effective. So, between 40 and 50 percent of those people that cross the border illegally are getting away from us. So, we arrest 50,000, but 50,000 are getting by.”

This 2017 Washington Post article on DHS toughening its approach, also refers to “got-aways”.

Considering “got-aways” the 180,988 total apprehensions of illegal invaders in Texas so far this fiscal year must me elevated to an estimated 361,976. Considering “got-aways”, the estimated number of illegal border crossings into Texas for fiscal year 2018 exceeded 500,000.  At the current five-month pace of apprehensions for fiscal year 2019, Texas is tracking to endure a tsunami of invaders from south of the border at a number approximating 800,000+.

RERvideo – RERcontributor TRACY SHANNON RESPONDS TO DQST LEADERS QUITTING (VIDEO)

RERcontributor Tracy Shannon has been leading the charge to stop the performances of Drag Queen Story Time at branches of the Houston Public Library.  Shannon has been leading the journalistic investigation for the activist group MassResistance-Houston, and RagingElephantsRadio.com.

The March 19th announcement of the organizers of Drag Queen Story Time, has a few caveats included.  Shannon points out that while the organizers may be raising the white flag of surrender, the administration of the Houston Public Library, and Office of Mayor Sylvestor Turner have no intention of letting DQST die.

Shannon discusses that within the homosexual community, a fiery debate has broken out over the DQST controversy.  There are supporters of the neo-morality movement that have expressed regret over DQST, the discovery that a convicted pedophile was discovered as a participant, and believe these types of programs actually set the movement back.

Shannon is digging deeper into the function of the American Library Association in the creation and promotion of such programs like Drag Queen Story Time.  And, she’s working on a story about a library that has four separate drag queen initiatives within its services.
