Today's stories

HARRIS COUNTY has been sued for allowing non-citizens to register to vote. The legal filing comes late in the election cycle after the county spent years fighting the release of records used to build the case. 

Meanwhile, a stay of last week's last-minute ruling reinstating straight-ticket voting was issued by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

And, while Harris County is setting up to mismanage this year's election, opening the door to likely malfeasance (including mail-in ballot harvesting), there will be an upper threshold.

FIVE THIRTY-EIGHT: Trump has an electoral college advantage. Also, Five Thirty-Eight, Trump only has a 25% chance of winning.

TED CRUZ and other Republicans are going on the record. If the Supreme Court strikes down Obamacare, the GOP will protect Americans with preexisting conditions.

JOE BIDEN won't win Texas.

STRAIGHT TICKET VOTING is in a state of limbo after a judge late last week ruled that the practice should be reimplemented after it was done away with in 2017. The ruling is being appealed.

Most states (all but six) have ditched the practice.

SPEAKERS RACE POLITICS are coming into the foreground, which means (predictably) it's been percolating in the background for some time [1 | 2].

Following the 2017 announcement that Jose Straus would relinquish the Speaker's gavel, there was a long list of candidates who filed for the job. None contented. This time around, no candidates have filed for the position.

Notice that reporting on the race, Democrats, if they manage to take secure a majority in the House, will 100% control who is nominated and win. The same should be true of Republicans.

THE NEW YORK TIMES reported over the weekend that Donald Trump listens to experts and, as a result, paid his taxes. It's shocking news.

The media is irreparably broken. To illegally disclose that Trump allegedly paid $750 in 2016 and 2017, the NYT relied on an anonymous source.

FRI brief 9.25.20

Harris Co election coup

Welcome to the morning brief. If this email was forwarded to you, sign up (free or paid), so you don't miss a beat.

Today's stories

KEN PAXTON announced the arrest of four individuals, including a Gregg County Commissioner, for taking part in an alleged mail-in ballot fraud operation.

DAN PATRICK was absent from a press conference featuring Greg Abbott and Dennis Bonnen in Dallas yesterday, where they followed DeSantis' lead, outlining harsher penalties for rioters.

Here are a couple of other data-points that may or may not be related.

Harris County Clerk Chris Hollins is being allowed to run largely unchecked by the Governor and his Secretary of State. Hollis is preparing to violate election law, setting a negative precedent on drive-thru (curbside) polling, mail-in balloting, and 24-hour in-person voting.

And, last week, the NRCC pulled funding earmarked for Harris Co. and redeployed it to DFW.

HARRIS COUNTY is set to break the law, and Governor Abbott appears to be waving a white flag.

Visit the polling location webpage, and you'll see that there are 24-hour voting centers (click hours of operation) and drive-thru voting.

These are not activities allowed in Texas election law. Time frames to vote 7 AM - 7 PM are prescribed as are rules on curbside voting, that, like upheld law on mail-in balloting, are limited.

These usurpations of law must be opposed or similar to recent rulings and chatter in their wake; there will be attempts to cement and expand them.

THU brief 9.24.20

Godspeed friend

Welcome to a late, wading through the molasses of grief, morning brief. If this email was forwarded to you, sign up (free or paid), so you don't miss a beat.

Today's story

ROSS KECSEG, the President of TexasScorecard, passed away yesterday after a years-long battle with cancer. He was such a good man, an apple that didn't fall far from the tree, whose optimism, patience, and energy for others will much missed. Join me in praying that the peace which passes all understanding be with his family and friends.

TDS gripped hypocrites were triggered yesterday when President Trump said he would have to wait and see about transferring power when posed a hypothetical question about a win, lose or draw in November.

The question, posed by an enemy of the American public (a.k.a media), is only interested in Trump losing and ignores that the left has been openly plotting to reject an election result favoring the incumbent.

America has just endured a non-peaceful transfer of power after Obama, and the remnant of his administration ran a four-year coup to subvert the will of voters.

What the President said yesterday isn't a departure from prior statements, just the latest tweak of the deranged hordes of never-Trumpers.

DONNA CAMPBELL appears to have been whipped after signing onto a lawsuit challenging Greg Abbott. Hazarding a guess, she was threatened with the redistricting cudgel.

The suit Campbell is abandoning seeks to restrain voting in Texas to the prescribed dates and times after Abbott preemptively expanded early voting.

DEFUNDING POLICE still isn't really a thing outside of Austin, but it makes an excellent political football for the election.
