Nat'l Committeeman Robin Armstrong Endorses Denise McNamara

It is indeed an honor to have the endorsement of Dr. Robin Armstrong, our Texas National Committeeman. Robin has served as Vice Chair in the past, and he understands that we need an experienced conservative in this position. 

I look forward to working with Robin and Chairman Dickey to Keep Texas Great!

Our Texas GOP Platform, and Why I Love It

As a proud member of the 2016 Texas GOP Platform Committee, I would like to address the drumbeat, brought up by #TheAmazingDocGreene, that many in the RPT would like to shorten our platform.

Our system of bottom-up, grassroots involvement enables anyone who votes in our primary to attend his or her precinct convention and submit a resolution (with 3 copies).

That resolution then is reviewed at the Senatorial District level, and if it passes muster, goes on to the state platform committee.

This system gives a voice to everyone in the base of the party, rather than a top-down, elitist mentality of “leadership knows best.”

That is what I love about the Republican Party of Texas, and why the system that we have is so great.

If you want brevity, simply refer to the Ten Principles enumerated following the preamble. That is the meat of the platform. The rest is always well and thoroughly debated and to eliminate it would be to eliminate the participation of our 9000+ delegates, comprising the largest political convention in the world.

So, in my opinion, the grassroots rules.

We, the 2016 Republican Party of Texas, believe in this platform and expect our elected leaders to uphold these truths through acknowledgment and action. We believe in:

“The laws of nature and nature’s God” and we support the strict adherence to the original language and intent of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitutions of the United States and of Texas.
The sanctity of innocent human life, created in the image of God, which should be protected from fertilization to natural death.
Preserving American and Texas sovereignty and freedom.
Limiting government power to those items enumerated in the United States and Texas Constitutions.
Personal accountability and responsibility.
Self-sufficient families, founded on the traditional marriage of a natural man and a natural woman.
Having an educated population, with parents having the freedom of choice for the education of their children.
The inalienable right of all people to defend themselves and their property.
A free enterprise society unencumbered by government interference or subsidies.
Honoring all of those that serve and protect our freedom.

Mueller's Ongoing Outrageous Witch Hunt

This is getting beyond ridiculous.

Special Prosecutor Mueller has raided the offices of President Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

Evidently Mueller is looking for information on the purported payment from Cohen to porn star Stormy Daniels. And anything else he can possibly find.

How would that have anything to do with Mueller's original mandate to investigate possible collusion between the President and Russia?

Mueller is truly pushing the boundaries of his legal role beyond anything we have seen in American history.

He is blatantly engaging in a partisan witch hunt, evidently with the approval of Rod Rosenstein and even Jeff Sessions. When will our Attorney General realize that his recusal does not mean that he can stand by and allow this farce to continue. When will Rosenstein be fired?

President Trump's attorneys, aides, and advisors insist that Mueller cannot be fired by the President. Why not? The Department of Justice is part of the executive branch, which is, after all, under the purview of the President of the United States. They serve his administration, not the other way around.

It is time to clean house. In the White House there are leakers. In the deep state there are still never-Trump activists. And in the Department of Justice and the FBI, there are determined enemies of President Trump who have and seem to still be plotting ways to overthrow his election.

Pray for President Trump and his ability to defeat this multi-tentacled enemy.

Denise McNamara for Vice Chair

As our current Vice Chairman Amy Clark has announced her decision to retire at the end of her term, we will be electing a new vice chair for the next two years at our state convention.

Our rules dictate that if a male chairman is elected, the vice chairman must be a female.

James Dickey, our current Chairman, has done an outstanding job in his short tenure, and he will be running for re-election at this next convention.

At the request of many friends throughout the state, I have decided to throw my hat in the ring for Vice Chair. And I'm doing it somewhat earlier than the last time I ran. Instead of three days, I'm giving myself eight weeks. :)

There may well be other candidates, but thus far there are none of which I'm aware.

At this last weekend's SREC meeting, I received great support and encouragement from many of our SREC members, and I thank them all.

Please let me know if I can count on your support. My cell is 972-795-5118, and my email is

I look forward to hearing from you all.

James Dickey for State Chair

This past weekend I had the privilege of carrying the proxy of SREC Committeewoman Virginia Prodan to the quarterly meeting in Austin.

Chairman Dickey gave his report to the members, and I will summarize it here:

  • 1,543,725 Republicans voted in our March 6 primary
  • $1.1 million in unrestricted cash raised by the RPT in the last 10 months
  • $548,484.13 in unrestricted cash on hand (20% more than two years ago)
  • 8998 delegates elected to our upcoming state convention
  • RPT knocked on 23,000 doors to support tax reform
  • Our Texas convention has three times the number of delegates as the Republican National Convention
  • Texas has the largest political convention in the United States
  • 3862 candidates are on our November ballot

In short, the Republican Party of Texas is on the right trajectory in both voters and funds. Chairman Dickey has proven himself to be an excellent fundraiser, a fair and transparent leader, and a positive and effective chairman.

Please join me in endorsing James Dickey for State Chairman. Go to to learn more and add your name to his list of supporters.

Governor Abbott, President Trump Protect Our Border

Thank you, Governor Abbott, for protecting our border. Karl Rove was just commenting that he disagrees with President Trump’s statement that he is sending the National Guard to protect our border. Karl, we know you and your buddy, Low-Energy Jeb, would love to welcome any and all illegals into our country. We disagree. Thankfully, President Trump and Governor Abbott are working to protect us.
