Houston Mayor @SylvesterTurner shares his memories of former President George H.W. Bush.

As a Houstonian, I have mixed feelings about GHW Bush. I voted against him twice but I know what he did for the city. We hosted the G8 summit during his term and there are some light pillars that you drive by when going to the Bush International Airport from that summit.

GHW Bush wrote a letter to the DNC stating that Houston would be a great place for the Democratic National convention in 2020. Here are some comments from Mayor Turner on GHW Bush

Top GOP Senator Says Texas Is 'No Longer A Reliably Red State'

I often referred to Cornyn as senator boxturtle because this idiot thinks that same sex marriage is the same as someone marrying a box turtle. Democrats have been winning the big cities for a while and the Texas Democratic Party has expanded its emphasis on the suburbs which has Cornyn nervous https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/john-cornyn-texas-purple-state_us_5bfe3706e4b030172fa83705?fbclid=IwAR0aH7lIN7aOwrRdYRyYcq5ejyc9mdKYQwDN7r0jEY6qNO8LDdzxucEB1zk
Speaking to radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt on Monday, Cornyn, who has served as Senate majority whip since 2015, said his home state is not “a reliably red state” anymore ― but is instead an increasingly “purple” one.

Cornyn, who was first elected to the Senate in 2002, was discussing the hotly contested midterm Senate race between Republican incumbent Ted Cruz and Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke. Cruz managed to eke out a win by about 3 percentage points but his narrow victory cast a spotlight on a changing Texas, Cornyn said.

“Texas is no longer, I believe, a reliably red state,” the senator told Hewitt. “We are on the precipice of turning purple, and we’ve got a lot of work to do to keep it red, because we lost, we got blown out in the urban areas” in the Cruz-O’Rourke race.

“We got beat in the suburbs, which used to be our traditional strongholds,” he said. “And if it wasn’t for the rural areas of the state, where Senator Cruz won handily, it might not have turned out the way it did.”

Beto won the counties with the largest populations but was killed in the rural counties.

Texas is turning blue and Senator Boxturtle needs to be worried.

Judge rules against Trump administration in sanctuary cities case

Source: ABC

A federal judge in New York ruled Friday that the Trump administration cannot withhold public safety grants to six states and the City of New York based on the fact that they’re so-called sanctuary cities.

“Consistent with every other court that has considered these issues, the court concludes that defendants did not have lawful authority to impose these conditions,” the decision said.

The city, six states – New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Virginia – and the District of Columbia sued the administration over the threats to withhold money for criminal justice programs under what’s known as the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant, named for a New York City cop killed in the line of duty.
