RELEASE: Texas Democrats Endorse James Dickey for Reelection for Texas Republican Party Chair

Austin, TX — Today, as the Texas Republican Convention continues with its technical mishaps and Republican infighting, Texas Democrats are announcing the endorsement of James Dickey for re-election as the Republican Party of Texas chair.

Under Dickey’s leadership, the Republican Party of Texas is in complete turmoil — fighting amongst themselves on who to blame for their failed response to the coronavirus pandemic, battling until the bitter end to hold an in-person convention in the biggest coronavirus hotspot in the country, and dealing with ethics and transparency issues that continue to dog the party. 

Since Dickey’s election in 2017, Texas Democrats have gained 2 seats in the United States House of Representatives, 2 seats in the State Senate, 12 seats in the State House, and dozens of local seats across the state. This year, Texas will turn blue and Dickey’s leadership is a contributing factor.

If Texas Republicans are ever able to figure out their technical glitches ruining their convention, Texas Democrats have just one thing to say: James Dickey for Republican Party of Texas Chair. 

Texas Democratic Party Communications Director Abhi Rahman issued the following statement:

“Texas Democrats everywhere proudly endorse James Dickey for re-election as Republican Party of Texas chair. Under Dickey, Republicans lost two congressional districts, the most Texas House seats in generations, and dozens of races across Texas, including in Harris, Fort Bend, and Nueces counties. With that record of leadership, we hope he stays as chair of the Republican Party through November and beyond.

“As the Republican Party falters, Texas moves forward.”

Churchgoers Must Register With the Government in Kansas City

Kansas City, Missouri, officials are now requiring every church to submit a list of members and attendees along with their names, addresses and telephone numbers to city officials for tracking and surveillance purposes.

I am running out of adjectives to describe how completely insane the tyrannical abuses launched by state governors and local officials against pastors and churches are becoming. It is as if these leaders never bothered to so much as glance at the Constitution they swore to uphold and defend. They seem to be governing from some make-believe, dystopian viewpoint.

Yesterday, we received a desperate call from a Kansas City, Missouri, church whose local government is reaching new and terrifying heights in destroying our constitutional freedom. The Kansas City government is now DEMANDING that churches turn over membership lists, along with the names, telephone numbers and physical addresses of anyone who enters a church! This order also applies to all businesses

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo Sued Over Face Mask Requirement

By Naomi AnduThe Texas Tribune

A Houston area doctor who is also a conservative political activist is suing to block Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo’s recent order requiring residents over 10 years old to wear face masks in public places for 30 days, with some narrow exceptions.

“The rights we enjoy under the Texas Constitution are being trampled on by Judge Hidalgo, while millions of individuals have lost their jobs and thousands of businesses are on the brink of bankruptcy,” Dr. Steven Hotze’s petition to the Harris County District Court reads. “If Judge Hidalgo’s Order is not declared unconstitutional and void, once this virus passes, the rights we are afforded under the Texas Constitution will forever be damaged.”

The suit claims Hidalgo has exceeded her authority by implementing orders more restrictive than those of Gov. Greg Abbott, which take precedence. It also claims that the Disaster Act limits Hidalgo’s powers to those explicitly outlined in the statute, which “does not contain any language forcing private citizens to wear masks, wash their hands, refrain from touching their face, or stay six feet away from another under the threat of fines.”

Brazoria County deputies hosting free drive-thru pet food pantry in Alvin

RAZORIA COUNTY, Texas — There will be a free drive-thru pet food pantry on Thursday in Brazoria County.

Brazoria County Precinct 3 is hosting the Houston Humane Society event at the Alvin Animal Adoption Center — located at 550 W State Hwy 6, Alvin, TX 77511 — from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“While there are needs far greater than we can assist, we hope this event will provide some relief for pet owners.”, said Autumn M. Miller, Manager at the Alvin Animal Adoption Center.

exas is reopening its retail stores, malls, restaurants and movie theaters at 25 percent capacity on Friday, but Miller said it knows some pet owners will still have trouble making it to stores due to the financial impact from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As a pet owner and a foster parent to hospice pets, I personally know the struggles one can feel financially to feed your pet and give them the proper nutrition they need to thrive. Sadly, when finances get tight our pets suffer and lack the food that is important for their growth and health,” Miller said.

Coronavirus In Greater Houston: Turner Asks Montgomery County Judge To Keep Businesses Closed To Stop COVID-19 Spread In The Region

Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough on Tuesday said he was preparing to reopen all businesses in the county, saying Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order lifting only some restrictions on business was too vague.

Keough complained that the order, signed Monday by Gov. Greg Abbott, was stifling businesses by only allowing them to open at 25% occupancy, and said the governor was picking “winners and losers” by setting limits on which businesses were allowed to open.

As part of his argument, Keough questioned why dentists were now allowed to open and not hair salons, even though dentists performing oral surgery and routine check-ups for dental hygiene put their hands inside of patients’ mouths.

Texas conservatives call stay-at-home orders ‘tyranny.’ Some lawmakers agree.

Taylor Goldenstein April 14, 2020

A group of conservatives, including an influential Texas activist, penned an open letter to President Donald Trump this week, asking him to restart the economy and “let Americans manage their own risks,” while decrying expanded government benefits as a step toward socialism.

“Sadly, many state and local governments are not following the personal responsibility approach you advocated,” they wrote. “They are using wrong and confusing data to strip Americans of basic liberties, and to advance tyranny at an alarming rate.”

The letter was written by Tim Dunn, the chair of the Tea Party-aligned activist group Empower Texans — whose political action committee has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to Texas conservatives — as well as Darrell Scott and Kareem Lanier, co-founders of the Urban Revitalization Coalition and board members of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump.
