- Ted Cruz Ends His Presidential Bid Making Trump the Presumptive Nominee May 3, 2016
According to CNN, Ted Cruz bowed out of the Republican presidential race Tuesday following a crushing loss to Donald Trump in Indiana, clearing the path for the real estate mogul to clinch the GOP nomination.It was a remarkable turn of events in a presidential primary race that seemed destined — just weeks ago — to end in a contested convention this summer. Even in the final hours of the race in the Hoosier State, Cruz insisted he was staying in the race until June 7 — going so far as to attack his rival during a news conference as a “pathological liar” unfit for the White House.
In the end, the growing strength of Trump’s candidacy and Cruz’s own stumbles in the past two weeks were too much for Cruz to overcome. The Cruz, Kasich and anti-Trump forces had concocted elaborate plans to try to deprive Trump of the 1,237 delegates he needs to win the nomination outright. But those plans hinged on money and momentum. After Tuesday night, it appeared that Cruz would have neither. Read more here.

- Lt. Gov. Patrick to North Texas Officials: Runaway Property Tax Increases Must Stop April 29, 2016
“Taxing entities must stop the rapid growth in property taxes. I invite localgovernment officials to come to the negotiating table in good faith to passreform that lowers property taxes and allows them to provide the services their constituents need. However, if they choose to continue listening to their lobbyists, who have instructed them not to compromise or negotiate, and ignore the burden faced by local property owners, they should be fully prepared for us to pass legislation without their input. Property owners are desperate for property tax relief and I intend to do all I can to deliver it to them.
“I thank committee chair Paul Bettencourt, and senators, for traveling around the state, listening to public testimony from home and business property owners and local government officials,” concluded Patrick.

- Why the Left Loathes Western Civilization-Read Dennis Prager’s fantastic article April 27, 2016
From The National Review by Dennis Prager:
This month Stanford University students voted on a campus resolution that would have had their college require a course on Western civilization — as it did until the 1980s. Stanford students rejected the proposal 1,992 to 347.
A columnist in the Stanford Daily explained why: Teaching Western civilization means “upholding white supremacy, capitalism, and colonialism, and all other oppressive systems that flow from Western civilizations.”
The vote and the column encapsulated the Left’s view of Western civilization: In Europe, Latin America, and America, the Left loathes Western civilization.
Wherever there is conflict between the West — identified as white, capitalist, or of European roots — and the non-West, the Left portrays the West as the villain.
I am referring to the Left, not to liberals. The latter generally venerated Western civilization. President Franklin Roosevelt, for example, frequently spoke of defending “Christian civilization.”
Today, the Left would revile any Westerner who used such language as xenophobic, racist, and Fascist.

- More than 500,000 boycott Target over transgender bathroom policy April 25, 2016
Sign the pledge from the American Family Associations boycott pledge here.
According to USA Today, A conservative Christian activist group has gained more than half a million signatures and counting from people pledging to boycott Target over its transgender bathroom policy.
The petition started by the American Family Association on Wednesday raises concerns that Target’s inclusive stance on transgender rights encourages sexual predators and puts women and young girls in danger, because “a man can simply say he ‘feels like a woman today’ and enter the women’s restroom.”
The boycott has more than 517,000 signatures as of Monday afternoon, marking it as one of AFA’s most popular campaigns. Read more from USA Today
