Houston City Elections - Michael Kubosh Brings Conservative Values and Broad-based Support to Race for City Council
It is time for conservatives to stand up in Houston and take control of our city's future. We have an opportunity to add a true conservative to Houston's City Council who also has a proven ability to build a coalition of supporters to take on issues like Houston's former red light camera program and Mayor Parker's anti-feeding ordinance.
It takes a unique individual to be able to effectively work with such a wide and diverse group of people. It is a skill that could be very valuable to a member of the Houston City Council. I sat down this week with Michael Kubosh, candidate for Houston City Council, At Large Position 3, to talk with him about who he is and why he wants to become a member of council for this great city.

In 2011, Debbie Georgatos coined the phrase "Super Massive Blue Hole" to define the effect on cities that are controlled over long periods of time by liberal Democrat governments and policies. She named Detroit as the poster child of this effect. The phrase drew high-profile criticism from liberal news commentators Rachel Maddow and Anderson Cooper. It now appears her thoughts have become reality as Detroit recently became the largest city in our nation to file for debt relief under federal bankruptcy laws. Read more »

Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Ron Hickman will speak to the Texas Tea Party Republican Women's Club (TTPRW) tomorrow night about the huge problem of human trafficking and sexual slavery that is rampant in the Houston Area. Many have called Houston the nation's capital in human trafficking.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has called the Super Bowl "the single largest human trafficking incident in the United States." According to Forbes Magazine, the Super Bowl held in Miami, Florida in 2010 saw an estimated 10,000 prostitutes brought to the city. Many of these being under-age victims of human trafficking. During Dallas' Super Bowl, there were 133 arrests for underage prostitution. Read more »
It has been learned through my own independent investigations that Mayor Annise Parker is taking extravagant and lavish trips, all while indirectly undermining the efforts of Council Member Helena Brown to gain Korean support for a direct Incheon-Houston flight, which means jobs and revenue for Houston. And the “media” has done nothing to expose the hypocrisy.
Here are a few examples: Read more »
Just before last year's Super Bowl in Arlington, Texas, I posted an article relating to human trafficking, sex slavery and how those things connected to the Super Bowl. The Texas Attorney General, Greg Abbott, had weighed in on the topic calling the Super Bowl "a magnet for child sex traffickers". The story also discussed what was being done in Houston and Harris County which has become widely known as the Sex Slave Capital of the United States.
As we approach this year's Super Bowl in Indianapolis, I thought it would be appropriate to revisit the topic and see what has occurred in the past year. The first thing on this list? New laws passed by the Texas Legislature. Read more »
At the December meeting of the Greater Heights Area Chamber of Commerce, Texas State Representative Debbie Riddle (R-150th) and Texans for Sensible Immigration Policy Founder Norman Adams teamed up for a fascinating debate on the subject of illegal immigration. Over 400 people attended the event including elected officials, candidates, business leaders and community activists on both sides of the fence. The debate was moderated by former Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Paul Bettencourt.
The sold out crowd was entertained and informed for the next 52 minutes as the two covered a variety of topics including border security, immigration reform, tax policy, driver's licenses for immigrants and leaky bathtubs. One of the best things that came out of the debate was an illustration of how respectful debate by people who have many disagreements on a subject can find common ground and points upon which change can be made to move an issue forward.
