The Absurdity of "Trump/Cruz Can't Win" / source: townhall.com
Have we not all learned that this is a terrible year for broad pronouncements? The past months are littered with the failed assertions of oh-so-smart people who just knew they had everything figured out.
Trump is a joke. No, wait, he’s inevitable. He’s out of control. No, now he’s more disciplined, He’s got this. No, he’s a loose cannon.Cruz has no chance to be the nominee. No, wait, now he has the inside track. His campaign operation has too many flaws. No, now they are the smart ones with the best delegate roundup skills.

November 5, 2014/ Associated Press / After Republican rout,Obama tells voters: 'I hear you'
WASHINGTON –
Reuters - U.S. President Barack Obama acknowledged on Wednesday that "Republicans had a good night" with sweeping election victories in Congress and said he got a message from voters that it was his responsibility to break a Washington gridlock. Republicans seized control of the U.S. Senate in Tuesday's election and captured their biggest majority in the House of Representatives in more than 60 years. The party also won more than half of the 36 governors' races. "As president, I have a unique responsibility to try and make this town work," the president, a Democrat, said at a White House news conference. "So, to everyone who voted, I want you to know that I hear you."....read more

November 2, 2014/William E. Brown, III/ From the President!
November 4, 2014, a sudden instance of success describes the nationwide Republican Victory. No way! It happened over several months; the hard work of grassroots Republican efforts. Republicans gain 8 seats in the U.S. Senate with Louisiana in a runoff, 12 seats in the U.S. House with 2 in a runoff, and 3 more Governors. In Texas, Republicans sweep all statewide positions. In Dallas County, Republican Susan Hawk wins DA race. In Dallas County, the momentum is a building block for 2016. Continued effort by the Grassroots can turn Dallas County RED. Enjoy the success and keep working.

January 28, 2014/ Associated Press / FACT CHECK: Obama's planned executive orders would accomplish less than meets the eye.
WASHINGTON – President Obama promised to clear red tape away from highway projects that actually are stalled because there's no money for them, not because rules are in the way. He's ordering a higher minimum wage for a sliver of the workforce, which affects no one now and not many later. Going it alone -- without Congress making a law -- just doesn't go as far as Obama made it sound at times Tuesday night in his State of the Union speech.And when he talked about his health care law -- a source of Obama misstatements in the past -- he hit another fact bump.A look at some of the facts and political circumstances behind his claims, along with a glance at the Republican response:

January 14, 2013/ Michael R. Huebner, M.B.A., J.D. / Republicans Must Never Surrender
Republicans lost a battle with the reelection of Obama to a second term, but now is not the time to surrender. Liberal Democrats are waging war on the America way of life. They are relentless in attacking our freedoms, and they don’t seem to care that their policies are spending our country into oblivion.

August 2, 2012 / Michael R. Huebner, M.B.A., J.D. / It’s Time to Support our Republican Candidates
The primaries are now over. It is time to put aside any differences we might have and give our full support to the Republican candidates that we chose to represent us. As usual, the primary battles were tough. In the presidential race, we endured seemingly countless debates in a war of attrition before Mitt Romney became our presumptive nominee. The race for Texas senator was marked by vicious mudslinging, and some might say outright distortions of the truth, before Ted Cruz came out on top.

May 2, 2012 / Michael R. Huebner, M.B.A., J.D. / The Future of America is Not Lost
I write this article from the perspective of having recently been a Judge at the Irving Classic Speech and Debate Tournament for home-schooled teens as well as hosting a debate given by a group of Speak Out North Texas teens at our May, 2012, Greater Irving Republican Club meeting. To say that these young men and women are impressive is an understatement. With a minimum of preparation, these debaters were well spoken, intelligent, and presented coherent, well-organized arguments. When the meeting was over, many of us were asking ourselves “were you doing anything like that at age fifteen?”

January, 2012 / Michael R. Huebner, M.B.A., J.D. / Embrace the Republican Primary Season
The primaries bring a mixture of excitement and angst to Republicans. On both the national and local levels, our candidates are out on the campaign trail. They are touting all of their personal and professional qualities as well as their achievements. Candidates are knocking on doors, making phone calls, and attending any event they can to make their candidacy known and secure our votes.

March 6, 2011 / Don VanSlyke / A TRUE VOTE is needed in Dallas County
Is there voter fraud in Dallas County? Eighteen years ago as an election judge, I felt certain that the answer was no. Today, my answer is yes. Some increased opportunity for fraudulent activity is because of a widespread desire for voting convenience, modernization, and access. Unfortunately in Dallas County, something far more sinister is afoot.

You live in Irving because you moved here for an opportunity at a better life; you landed a job here, or knew someone that recommended the area or found it geographically convenient. All of these are common reasons folks move to this area today and have been since the mid 1800.

From Washington, D.C., Congress aimed a canon at the heart of Texas.

July 31, 2010 / Don VanSlyke / Why Vote Straight Republican?
I am a conservative, and when it comes to politics one question always sneaks into my mind… WHY? One reason that many people give is that in Dallas County, the “Democrats are doing it”. In 2006, over 15,000 more straight-ticket democrats voted than straight-ticket Republicans. ....read more
