The resolution for Full Censure against the speaker of the Texas House Joe Straus III was passed overwhelmingly tonight by the Bexar County Executive Committee. The good people of Bexar County finally got their chance to present their 18 point resolution and state their case. They have spoken out loud and clear that tyranny and utter disrespect for the voters of this county and state can/will no longer be tolerated.  

News Flash…

TX Speaker Joe Straus was censured this evening, Monday, Dec. 11, 2017, by his own Bexar County GOP organization for being an obstructionist to conservative state legislation in the Texas House, and for disparaging the state GOP Platform.

A video was shown of Straus being challenged in the state House for not moving conservative pieces of legislature. The video showed undeniable evidence of his arrogance and obstructionism.

Some Straus supporters tried to defend him as a good Republican, but in the end, no one could dispute his actions.
The censure brands Straus for listening to lobbyists more than the grassroots voters, and as an obstructionist to the conservative legislative agenda. It also sends a big message to rest of the GOP Establishment obstructionists.

What’s the point of having a GOP state platform if elected officials don’t support it, or even worse, disparage it?

Remember folks, the defense of freedom and liberty starts in your backyard with your precinct chairs and local officials. Hold them accountable.

    I’d like to know who the 21 precinct chairs are that voted against Censuring Joe Straus.

    This is misleading article, It was 70% of the people who responded to Devila’s email. Not 70% of the chairs. Not even 50% of the chairs attended that meeting on Monday night they were so disgusted with the whole thing. The strange part is that probably only one or two were from his district.
