Governor Abbott Calls for Investigation of Harris County, Texas

"So often we hear about these election improprieties, election irregularities. And then we just wait and nothing ever happens. Now, I'm happy to say this came out from Greg Abbott, the reelected governor of Texas. I'm calling for an investigation into the widespread problems with the Harris county elections last Tuesday. And the allegation of election improprieties in our state's largest county. By the way, this is a county that includes Houston. May result from anything ranging from malfeasance to blatant criminal conduct. So he's going to look into it and he's calling on people to look into it. And this is very new. But more importantly, I mean, I'm glad Greg is on this, but people will say Greg Abbott is a Republican and he didn't like the results because you know Greg Abbott in Harris county lost. Beto o'rourke got more votes than he did, right? However, and as you know, people that don't understand, Harris county is the largest county in Texas. It's almost 5 million voters. So Harris county encompasses all of Houston and a few surrounding areas and that's about 4.7 million people. But the most, I think, interesting part of all this is that the DA in Harris county, who is a Democrat, her name is Kim ogg is calling for an investigation herself.

Texas Governor Declares Border Crisis an Invasion

"Also in this hour, I want to try to get to what's happening with governor Greg Abbott. He finally declared an invasion an invasion on the border and I'm so glad that he did Republicans seem to miss the boat. I don't want to say it's too little too late. He's doing what he what he needs to do. Right now, wish he had done it sooner, but it's obviously needed, especially given the fact that we have Katie Hobbs who literally oversaw her own election. Absolutely unbelievable to me, but we had a Republican governor that sat by and did absolutely nothing, knowing this lady was secretary of the state and overseeing her own election. So it is what it is. Arizonans are going to have to get fed up, but I strongly suspect that part of the reason Greg Abbott is going full bore and has declared this invasion at the southern border. It gives him plenty of powers, but that in particular is I think a reason. And obviously, Republicans didn't do as well.

Mollie Hemingway Calls Out the GOP's Unpreparedness With Abortion

"I think one of the other kind of struggles people have is maybe we set our expectations too high. There is a debate on the right of the role that Dobbs played in this election. I do believe that in certain states, especially in the state races interestingly enough, it was actually an anchor, especially in Michigan and in Wisconsin in a year that otherwise should have been a very good year. We lost by 5, 6 or 7 points when we had really good candidates. What are your thoughts, Molly? It's very confusing to decipher it. I mean, you take very strong pro life governors like Ron DeSantis, Bill Lee, Brian Kemp, Greg Abbott, who signed effectively or, you know, who's in a state that essentially has an abortion ban, they all won their reelection, incumbent pro abortion supportive governors also did well. I think there was clear failure on the part of the Republican Party to deal with that issue. And it's criminal because they knew it was coming. They knew they had the leak. They knew it was likely to be overturned. They should have had a plan in place. And I saw that the people who support abortion spent $391 million on targeted messaging compared to 11 million for pro lifers. That's just inexcusable. And you might not win the issue. You know, it was a big change in abortion policy and one that many people had worked very hard for and had prayed for for a very long period of time. You can certainly get it to a draw and instead Republicans kind of did this ostrich head in the sand approach of showing that not only were they weak, but they were scared to talk about it.

One Bright Light in This Midterm Landscape

"There are not a lot of bright lights and this midterm landscape. But one of them, surely, is the steady movement of Latinos toward the GOP. Now, this is not a movement that has been completed. It is a movement that is underway. If you look, for example, at Florida, heavy Latino vote for desantis and interestingly, he seems to have won Latinos kind of across the board. With Greg Abbott in Texas, the results a little bit more mixed, but Abbott got a decent share of the Latino vote. If you look at the Rio Grande valley a special interest of W's and mine because Debbie grew up there, we had three Latina Republicans running Cassie Garcia and Myra Flores, who was in Debbie's own district where her mom lives. And then Monica de la Cruz. So normally one of them, Monica, dela Cruz won. But the other two actually came really close. Cassie Garcia was edged out by the way by a fairly conservative Democrat cuellar. Is that the guy's name Henry, Henry cuellar, and Myra Flores, I mean, this is a district that used to go easily 60 40, 20 point difference or more. Even more. And Myra got what, 43 or 44. And so the other guy, so does that still a ten point gap, but the point is the gap is narrowing.

There Are So Many Good Stories Out of the Midterms...

"So many good stories out of the midterms. We're not talking about desantis by 20, even Brian Kemp one convincingly in Georgia, Greg Abbott, just obliterated Robert Francis o'rourke. I mean, just ran over and Greg Abbott actually won independence in Texas, which is so interesting. Lombardo won in Nevada. But it's just, you know, in Arizona in particular. I mean, I'm shocked and I'm just looking at the numbers as they are. And I'd love to have somebody walk me through them. I'd love to have somebody tell me how on earth this is conceivable how it's possible how Carrie Lake could win game day in person election day voting independence two to one and then lose them if somebody dropped off ballots. It's just, and we're going to have the final numbers tonight. So just so everyone knows, there's anywhere between 90 to a 100,000 Maricopa ballots remaining. I think they're actually might be more than that. In fact, I just got a text message here for anyone listening from Arizona, okay? Anyone from Arizona listen to this. I want to, I want to talk about this. He said, by the way, your advice to cure vote was a good one. My wife and I voted at 6 a.m. on election day. My vote was tabulated, but my wife and I, among them, was among the majority of people around whose ballot couldn't tabulate. We checked our status and currently neither of us are currently listed as having voted since the primary. So we're going to have Tyler Boyer on to kind of walk through what to do here, but there is a chance that again, it's a chance. I'm not saying that it's a good chance, but knowing Maricopa's incompetency, there's a chance that there's tens of thousands of ballots in adjudication in different buckets that haven't been tabulated. And that would end up kind of closing this turnout gap that currently is a little bit mysterious right now. So

The Republicans won. Joe Biden's agenda is done. Joe Biden is an absolute lame duck ineffective impotent president in terms of his gender for the next two years. Can't get it done without the house. That's a win. Ron DeSantis was a superstar last night. That's a win. Greg Abbott, Texas, voters, sending beto home once again. Robert Francis o'rourke lost. That's a win. Stacey Abrams loses again.

Texas Is the Cash Cow for Presidential Elections

"If those of you elsewhere are wondering if my state is about to turn purple or turn blue. That's going to be a big fat no here in two weeks from today, Greg Abbott is going to win and it's not going to be that close. Our lieutenant governor Dan Patrick is going to win and it ain't going to be that close. Our attorney general Ken Paxton is going to win. I thought that one might be close. I no longer do. This is a red state. We're going to fortify our role as such. Here's why everybody in Iowa and Utah and Alabama and Florida and Oregon and why conservatives ought to care about this is because if Texas is ever lost, if we are ever no longer a red state, you will never elect a Republican president again. We have 40 honking electoral votes now. 40, we have upped ourselves to 38 congressional seats plus our two senators. That's how you calculate your state's electoral votes. And so we have 40. Now, and so that's an 80 vote swing, an 80 electoral vote, swing. And look at how close a lot of the past elections have been, you take 40 away from the Republican nominee and hand them over to the Democrat camp. That is an 80 electoral vote swing, good luck. So yes, my state is important. And I am spending every day prodding and cajoling everybody listening in my state to get out there and vote our early voting is underway and with that we find an interesting quandary because I have never been a fan of early voting. I'm telling everybody to do it. I'm not stupid.

There Is No Scripture Against Borders

"I hear you like Jesus. Yes, I do. What is Jesus think of Greg Abbott putting migrants on a bus and shipping them up to sanctuary cities? Well, rather than go with my personal politics or whatever. I go to scripture. Again, if the subject is, what is Jesus think about X, Y, or Z? What does God think about X, Y, or Z? It's best not to riff just off your own gut feeling. Go to the evidence. There is nothing. Nothing in scripture that says that countries should not have borders. There is nothing nothing. In scripture that says that lawlessness must be a part of charity. There is nothing in scripture that would seem to frown on the migrant trips to sanctuary cities. Nothing. There's nothing in scripture that says you need to be a sanctuary city. Nothing. Charity and kindness are human. Traits. These are things that we are supposed to show to each other. It is purely a leftist index card, a liberal trope to try to pitch the definition of kindness as coming through the channels through the beneficence of government. Kindness and charity and Christian goodwill are never measured. Never to be measured. By what government does.

LULAC Decries Gov. Greg Abbott's 'Political Stunts'

"Back to lulac. So they are actually suing Abbott because they think that Abbott's tactic of sending the bus loads to D.C. and where else did he send him, not Martha's Vineyard. That was D.C. in New York. Do you see a New York? So he thought, oh, you are just dehumanizing these people. These Latinos, from Central and South America, they deserve human rights. They deserve to have rights. Well, you know, here's the thing. They are breaking the law, right? So really by that logic, that means that if somebody breaks into our House, what we have to feed them, we have to treat them with respect because they broke into our House. Hello? Well, the situation here though is complicated, I think, because even though you're right, that these are people who are not lawfully in the country, in a way they're not like people who broke into your house because you never collaborated with them to get in the house. Think about it. The Biden administration. Yes, but that would be like, say, our community, HOA, collaborating with them without our consent. Without August. Because that's what's happening. Is that the Biden administration is not asking the folks in the Rio Grande. If it's okay for these people to come over or anybody else. Not to mention the Texas as a state doesn't want them. And so governor Abbott in his sense of saying, listen, you guys claim to be sanctuary cities. Yes. You are pushing for. You know, and the brilliant thing about this is that nobody and I mean nobody is down there at the border, filming these people coming in. So what Abbott did, what desantis did is he's making it an issue. He wants the reporters to report about illegals because otherwise nobody else is reporting about a year. No one knows there's illegals in this country,

Effective Action Comes From Texas and Florida, Not DC Republicans

"When we scanned the landscape of American politics, we noticed that there is very effective action taking place at the state level. And I'm thinking now particularly of two states, Florida and Texas, which are really two of the largest, if not the largest red states. And the governors, but not just the governor, the lieutenant governor, the political establishment in the states, seems to be moving on multiple fronts. It seemed initially in Texas that Greg Abbott got a bit of a slow start, at least in this term. And he got battered a little bit because he had a mask mandate on, not for that long. And this was, of course, at the very beginning of COVID and then he decided he thought better of it than the mass mandate disappeared, and it's never coming back. Of course, in Florida, desantis went to kind of full bore and decided we're not shutting the state down at all. So we will deal with the pandemic. We will take the measures we need to. We will provide a treatment that we need to but we are not closing off economic activity and we're not going to stop people from going to churches, none of that. Turned out, I think, in retrospect to be the right call. And desantis has taken leadership in a number of areas. I mean, it's almost like every week or even some cases every day, the guy comes up with something new and just off the top of my head a few initiatives by desantis number one, let's set up an election integrity unit. In fact, I think he calls it an election police unit and they've arrested a bunch of felons who have been voting, so desantis is on that issue. Number two, he is on the issue of woke corporations. And of course, Florida got into a skirmish with Disney. They pulled Disney's special subsidy that allows Disney to operate almost like a city, desantis is all over the so called ESG issue. The issue of, again, large corporate corporate funds deciding that they will only invest in companies that are inclusive in terms of diversity, or companies that are that follow climate guidelines. And decide to say, listen, if you want to do that, you could be my guest, but the state of Florida is not going to be investing in you. We're not going to be putting our pension money where the pension money is being used as a kind of ransom. For companies to move in awoke direction.

Jesse Watters: Why Transporting Migrants Is Brilliant

"This story has certainly moved the needle for Ron DeSantis because Republicans and Democrats alike are looking at this guy and saying, yeah, that's pretty brilliant and why is it brilliant? Simple. Jesse watters at Fox News explains why it is perfectly brilliant. There were live on the ground waiting for a plane full of illegal immigrants to land nearby Joe Biden's $1 million beach house in Delaware. The only way to get the president to react to the open border because CBS spoke to him for 60 minutes and it never came up is to send migrants to his doorstep. He finally said something about the illegals being dropped off where he vacations today. Do you have any comment or response to investor? Did you come visit? We had a bit of a short run. Desantis isn't going to Delaware. It's not a swing state. But every news camera in the country went, have you ever seen this many reporters at the southern border? No. The flight's too far and it's dusty. You know, when Pulitzer is at the border, plus the humidity messes up your hair. Trust me, I know. The only way you can get the media to cover the border is to bring the border to the northeast, where it's a short drive from all of their bureaus. And the journalists, quote unquote, can be back home that night for dinner. He's right. The only way to get Americans to be aware of this is to do precisely what Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott and Republican governors are doing.

"Democrats are getting increasingly nervous. Remember politics is not just about what happens at one moment in time. It is a trajectory. It is a pattern of events that leads to a culminating or a culmination, a culminating event in early November. Right now there is a trendline that is very disturbing for the Democrat party. It seemed they got very, very hot over the summer and now the new polls that are coming out, which I know a lot of people say Charlie, I don't trust the polls. Well, these are polling. This is polling from liberal firms that are showing some Republicans starting to get separation speed. And we're seeing it on the ground in real time. Emerson has Ron Johnson up four points in the great state of Wisconsin. We were just there for our turning point action event in Green Bay, Wisconsin. In Georgia, which is a flip Herschel Walker up two points on Raphael Warnock. In Texas, Greg Abbott up 11 points on Robert Francis o'rourke. The latest poll out of Arizona shows Carrie Lake up four points on Katie hopps. And the trend continues. And the pattern of polling that we are seeing is Democrats. Are going down dramatically. Now, we are seeing this and we should celebrate this in the moment, but wait a second. This is not the election. This is not the entire ball game. The question is, with the trend improving with the gap tightening, Democrats are now going to become very, very desperate. If, for example, it is true that Herschel Walker wins in Georgia. If it is true, that Ron Johnson will win in Wisconsin. If it is true, that Adam laxalt wins in Nevada. Even with that, even with Blake masters and Oz not making it across the finish line, which I think they will, it's a Republican Senate.

The next day they need 200. The next day they need a thousand D.C. says it's a crisis to get 6000. They need 10,000 they need a 100,000. They need 500,000 because Joe Biden has allowed 4.2 million people to come in illegally. And I know these rich billionaires say, well gosh, you people just let them eat cake.

The AP's Josh funk reports negotiations were held at the Labor Department. The stakes for Biden were huge because he likes to portray himself as the most labor friendly union supporting president we've ever had. And so he's a strong supporter of unions, but it would have been a delicate time to have a strike just weeks before the midterm elections that could have derailed the economy. Amtrak had canceled some trips in anticipation of a possible strike. Amtrak says it's working quickly to restore council trains and reaching out to impacted customers to accommodate them. The bitter political battle over Biden administration immigration policy has arrived near the home of the vice president. The AP's Sagar Meghani has the story. Two buses of migrants from the U.S. Mexico border were dropped off outside the U.S. naval observatory home of vice president Harris, about two dozen men and women stood outside at dawn, holding plastic bags full of belongings before moving to a church. It's unclear which GOP governor sent them.

"I'm a Martinez. In Texas an abortion ban and the school shooting Yuval day may have shifted the odds and the governor's race. Earlier this year pulls indicated that Republican governor Greg Abbott had an overwhelming lead over the Democrat in the race, former congressman beto o'rourke, but as NPR's weighed Goodwin reports, the Democrats chances may have improved. It's 103 in Dallas, as Linda ortman steps out her front door. The dog wants to come. What used to be considered one of the most right wing cities in the country has evolved into one that is deeply democratic. The political signs and ortman yard are no shocked these days. We have beto for Texas and Black Lives Matter, funky east Dallas Democrats and two mothers against Greg Abbott signs. Mothers against Greg Abbott, maga, get it, the signs were invented by an Austin mother, one of her children has a compromised immune system and in March of last year, when governor Greg Abbott eliminated the state's COVID mask requirements, Nancy Thompson got very angry. She went into a garage and got a piece of poster board. She was going to drive over to the capitol building and protest, but she needed to figure out what to write. And I was like, gosh, I'm so mad at Greg Abbott. I'm like a mother against drunk driving. I'm like mothers demand action. But I'm a mother against Greg Abbott, so I wrote down mothers against Greg Abbott. Thompson looked at it and laughed. Mothers against Greg Abbott, magga. And so I just went down there and I protested all by myself in front of the capitol for two and a half hours. I had somebody take my photograph and I made it public and it went viral. Now, mothers against Greg Abbott signs can be found in yards across the state, and with three months to go, the governor's contest has tightened. Abbott started the year up 17 points, but SMU political science professor Cal Wilson believes now the race is on. It's 6 or 7, maybe 8 point but Abbott is not sweating unduly at this point, but he is alert to danger on the horizon. So I think we've got a race for governor in Texas. Joelson believes there are several reasons why o'rourke has a chance. First, the statewide collapse of the electricity grid in February of 2021. Hundreds died and millions froze for days. Then, on the last day of their school year, 19 elementary students and two teachers were gunned down and Yuval, Texas, by a teenager using an AR-15 style rifle. Finally, there's been the near total ban on abortion that Abbott signed into law last year. In fact, Nancy Thompson's group decided to make a video about it. There's no easy way to say this, but your baby has a catastrophic brain abnormality. The ad starts with the doctor giving his pregnant patient devastating news on the wall behind the doctor is a small box with a smiling picture of Texas governor Greg Abbott on the front. I wish I could tell you what to do. But there is only one person who can make this choice. How much time do I have? And that person is Greg. Greg? Yeah, let me just give him a call. Hey, Greg, here's democratic governor candidate beto o'rourke. There is now because of Greg Abbott, a total ban on abortion with no exception for rape or incest. We are counting first time voters by the dozen at our events throughout this state. Young women overwhelmingly, in fact, who say, you know what? I was never political before. But unlike the Kansas primary election, the abortion issue is not on Texas's ballot in November. Without that, we'll democratic voters turn out in big numbers. Greg Abbott's campaign doesn't appear worried about beating beto o'rourke. The guy is ineffective. Showboating gas bag. Dave Kearney is a veteran campaign organizer and the general consultant for Texans for Greg Abbott. We see this is an 8 to ten point race. The undecided is so small. Both campaigns have raised astounding amounts of money over the last few months, beto o'rourke raised $27.7 million. That said a new Texas campaign funding record. But don't cry for governor Abbott, his campaign has over $45 million in the bank, just waiting to be spent, wade Goodwin, NPR news, Dallas. President Biden today visits with families in the mountain communities of eastern Kentucky, where flash flooding killed at least 37 people last month.

I mean we're talking about a guy. Career politician been in there for years and years and years. The interesting thing about greg. Abbott is is that he has never truly been under the microscope. He's never had a republican primary challenge before when he was a judge when he was on the supreme court when he was attorney. General and up until you guys through your hat in the ring. He's never had to answer to republican primary voters and it's frustrating because some people don't understand the process usually most texans right now if they hear you say anything negative about greg abbott. They assume that you are a liberal democrat. Well the process. Is we get to pick which republican represents us and this is the first time the texans have had a chance to actually look at greg and on the surface it is. You know the facade. It's the theater that they have put together over time with a lot of campaign dollars of from special interests and put him in position To look like he's a conservative and because he's never had an opponent no one's ever pulled back those layers and actually gotten into it. And when you do you very quickly just like your analogy. Realize things are not at all what they seem. We're dealing with a guy who is really mastered how to be what i call campaign conservative. But that yeah. He's a campaign conservative. But i've been down there with him. I was there with them for two years when he was attorney general six years when he was governor.

"greg abbott" Discussed on Rusted Culture Podcast

"I mean it's not that complicated folks. It's just not that complicated. And just ask yourself this when hannity gets involved. And you've got tucker carlson that gets involved. And they're all circling the wagons around greg. Abbott it's not because they greg abbott take care less about greg abbott with. They're really concerned about is that. This is the conservative republicans sandbox that. They've been playing in over there and these practices of deregulation and the free market. You know around electricity and all the the free for all with that folks is led to this. So it's it's a republican experiment. That's failed miserably. You've got to have some common sense regulation. So he's coming up for reelection in twenty twenty two. Let's just hope folks. Let's just hope that. Texans pick somebody else other than greg abbott. I mean put him out to pasture somewhere. Do something with them but don't put them back in for whatever whatever you do so switching gears here folks. I don't know if you've noticed. But steve bannon had a sort of bombshell revelation here. There's an article that was written. And evidently steve bannon believes that donald trump had early stage dementia and he sought to remove him from the white house. Now we all knew that something was wrong with trump. We see something is still wrong with trump but this sort of along the lines of maybe what was going on with ronald reagan. You know with the dementia that he had in the way that they knew something was wrong was just the way that we know something's wrong. I mean eat. Bannon was saying that trump was repeating himself in the same stories over and over and over. Even republican senators evidently said the same thing and the new york times article by david brooks that he was repeating himself over and over and over. There's something wrong with donald trump. And i don't mean that in sort of like a A way i mean there is something genuinely wrong with with donald trump and the author of this book. That's coming out. His name is ira rosen. He's a sixty minutes producer. He says that he's got text. Messages from steve bannon. That read like this. You need to do the twenty fifth amendment piece by the way brother. I never steer you wrong. And this is coming. From steve bannon. I mean if it's a bad enough for steve bannon to come out and say something like this like you know what donald trump's got dementia. I mean it's bad enough for steve bannon to do this. How bad do you think it really is. I mean in all honesty but trump is still out there and the republican party is pending their future to donald trump and. I just hope that they continue to do that. Because it's a miscalculation. I believe that the republican party in mass actually supports donald trump..

"What we all just can't help but notice the tragedy. That's unfolding in has unfolded in the state of texas they. They've the governor really greg. Abbott has managed to turn the entire state of texas into a third world state folks. And i just want to say that I'm an iowa and forty percent. Forty percent of the energy here in iowa is coming from wind turbines. And we don't have a problem with the cold in fact we just had twelve days of subzero weather that would make you want to pack a bag and get the hell out of iowa. We've had over a foot of snow in that timeframe who knows how much ice we've had. And guess what when turbans they're still turning they're still turn it and the problem is it's not the wind turbines to get down to the root of it. The real problem is greg at it to be honest with you. He's the problem. But when you're talking about the wind turbines the thing about them is that you can winterized these things i mean. It's obvious they're functioning here in iowa white isn't he. Just pick up the phone and talk to somebody in iowa and find out how they do it. I know they're stubborn and hard headed. But my god. I mean these things. All these things will work in any environment. Basically except subterranean. It's just a mystery to me how this This insanity just unfolds and then he blamed the wind turbines. Have listen to this clip. folks sean. This shows how the green new deal would be a deadly deal for the united states of america. Texas is blessed with multiple sources of energy such as natural gas and oil and nuclear as as well as solar and wind. But you saw from what trey said and that is our win in our solar got shut down and they were collectively more than ten percent of our power grid and that thrust texas into a situation where it was lacking power in statewide basis. That was power that was spread out by that organization. So that was governor. Greg abbott there. And he's blaming everything but himself and actually. He is the root of the problem. The man is the problem and he's blaming everything else. Green energy wind turbans network in the wintertime. All this jazz. But there's an article in the washington post that goes on to say that the problem in texas is that there's no incentives for power plant operators to win arise their grid and this was an example. Where you can't have a grid that is not winterized to be able to withstand the extreme. That could come your way even if it's only in extreme that comes every every ten years or so and what they've done is they have been so focused on deregulation of the power grid and the people that supply energy and the grid and they've been so in tune to the free market which is good. I understand that and a little bit of deregulation is not bad..
