You Can Talk The Talk But Do You Walk The Walk Governor Perry.
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. ~Sir Winston Churchill
Yesterday several Tea Party activists visited the Governor and after that visit the reports are that they were not very encouraged.
“There were a lot of suits in there, with a lot of spin”
Although the Governor’s people were smart enough to get the photo op with the Tea Party Leaders to use for the possible Presidential campaign.
The question is will the photo actually reflect what was said in that meeting? Here is the tight rope that Governor Perry is walking.
Breaking today – Sanctuary City bill is dead and TSA Bill is dead…..
Special Session is over…..
Joe Straus has either threw Gov. Perry under the bus or they are working together to satisfy the large Republican donors who do not want any Conservative immigration bills to be passed.
From Bryan Preston at PJTV – Sanctuary city showdown in Texas
“There are two powerful Perry’s in Texas: Rick the governor and Bob the builder (they’re not related by blood). The former and his Republican Party depend to some extent on the latter for support, as Bob Perry of Perry Construction is among Texas’ most prolific political donors. But as the legislature’s special session winds toward a close, Rick the governor and Bob the builder find themselves on opposite sides of a sticky issue: Sanctuary cities. Gov. Perry made Houston’s status as a sanctuary city a key part of his attack on Democrat Bill White in the 2010 gubernatorial race, and has made cracking down on sanctuary cities one of his legislative priorities this session. The drug war in Mexico has necessitated greater border security generally, and the federal government has done nothing to help. Both the Texas House and Senate have passed sanctuary city bills, they just haven’t passed each other’s bills, so there’s nothing headed to Gov. Perry’s desk for signature. So the governor’s priority remains unfulfilled.”
Meanwhile, Bob Perry and fellow Texas heavyweight entrepreneur and political donor Charles Butt (CEO of the H.E.B. grocery chain) have come out against any sanctuary city bill.
So what does that mean for the safety and security of Texans and Legal Immigrants? We Lose!
The losers on this issue, Texas taxpayers, Texans whose lives are lost or destroyed because we have allowed violent criminals to enter into our county illegally, right along with Hispanics whose lives have been destroyed because we will not hold Mexico accountable for not providing a safe and secure homeland for their people.
Whose hands are stained by the blood of those lives destroyed? Texas Republican Leaders.
So we have a Call To Action Governor Perry…..
If you intend to run for President of the United States and you want the support of Grassroots and Tea Party Texans you better prove to us that you are more interested in the Safety and Security of Texans and Legal Immigrants than you are in making nice with the Lobby groups representing people like Bob Perry and Charles Butt who are more interested in cheap labor and taking advantage of illegal aliens.
If people what to know what was said to Governor Perry in that meeting you can hear what Grassroots and Tea Party activists had to say to the Governor and the Leaders of the House and the Senate in the videos below.
CALL A 2ND SPECIAL SESSION AND GET THE JOB DONE IN TEXAS. HOW CAN WE TRUST YOU WITH THE UNITED STATES WHEN YOU CAN NOT PROVIDE FOR THE SAFETY AND SECURITY OF TEXANS.
Two must pass bills in the 2nd Special Session
1. TSA Anti-Groping Bill which was killed by Joe Straus today in the Texas House.
2. Sanctuary City Bill which was killed by Joe Straus and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst.
