Texit petition drive

Last night Dan Miller of the Texas Nationalist Movement made the Major Announcement he teed up ten days ago. Using a relatively obscure provision of Texas election law, he will start a petition drive to put the question of Texas independence on the Republican and Democratic primary ballots. At the same time the TNM will recruit challengers to all Texas officeholders who “chubbed” the Texit bill to death. This is a brilliant plan, and the best possible strategy to win Texas independence.

Texit – the next move

Texit – the movement for Texas independence – stalled in the regular session of the Legislature. HB 1359, the Texas Independence Referendum Act, got no hearing. Even many hours of “virtual testimony” did not sway a complacent (or frightened) Texas House. Now Dan Miller, head of the Texas Nationalist Movement, is preparing his next move. And he will announce that move within ten days.

Texit first cycle ends

Texit – the movement for Texas to reassert the independence it gave up in 1845 – will die in the Texas Legislature. The bill to put Texit to a vote never got a hearing in committee. Dan Miller, head of the Texas Nationalist Movement, naturally expressed his disappointment. He did so with a threat to “primary” every Texas legislator (almost all Republican!) who “chubbed” his bill. But he can take heart. Secessionist movements, even revolutionary ones, often go through several cycles of apparent failure of will, nerve, or stamina. However many cycles any movement goes through, people remember the one that succeeds.

Texit, rewilding, and casus belli

At last report, Dan Miller of the Texas Nationalist Movement is planning an April 8th “Capitol Day” rally in Austin. He has a serious problem. Though the Texit Bill (HR 1359) is in the House State Affairs Committee, they have not scheduled a hearing. This looks uncomfortably like “chubbing,” and Mr. Miller very much suspects that it is. So he wants his followers to come to the Capitol to demand action on that bill. It must pass so that Texans will have a vote on whether to stay in the Union. And “President” Joe Biden just gave Texans good cause to secede, something closely akin to casus belli.

Texit – two opposing voices

Last week your editor described two important bills now pending in the Texas Legislature that relate to Texit. They include the Texas Independence Referendum Act and the Texas Border Security Enhancement Fund Act. Both have reached the Texas State House Committee on State Affairs. In the meantime, two prominent opposing voices have emerged, one in the Texas House, the other in the Texas Senate. The arguments they make, and their quality (or lack thereof), illustrate the obstacles that voices for Texas independence face.

Fomenting race wars

Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a binary theoretical framework rooted in Marxism, that defines individuals as either oppressed or oppressors based on their skin color. Critical Race Theory insists that white people are oppressors and people of color are oppressed. CRT is an obscene and entirely un-American doctrine because it views every individual through the prism of race, rather than the prism of merit.

Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) now sounds a public alarm that a pending bill would treat “almost” half the country as domestic terrorists.

Senate in disgrace – again

Once again the United States Senate, or at least half its Judiciary Committee, has disgraced itself. Democratic members of that Committee continue to ask self-serving questions of Judge Amy Coney Barrett, now of the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and a candidate for a seat on the Supreme Court. They ask the sort of questions no Senator should ask, and presume to set a standard for qualification that in fact would disqualify any judicial candidate.

Nancy Pelosi gives the latest example of imperious hypocrisy. But who is the bigger fool? Does that distinction go to those who elect her?
