“We have the primary election canvas Monday, March 10 at 7 pm at the Rosenberg County Annex on Reading Road (where elections is located) This is a Statutory Meeting and is not subject to quorum requirements. Your attendance is not required.”
By FBCStaff-The establishment GOP doesn’t like the values side of of the GOP. As Harris County Judge Emmett said “you have to change your attitude about abortion and taxes.” There’s a reason Ed Emmett keeps getting elected in a heavily democrat county.
Last week Sen Minority Leader McConnell addressed CPAC and made this promise:
“Eyeing November and an upgraded job title, McConnell promised to fight for conservative reforms. “If I’m given the opportunity to lead the U.S. Senate next year, I won’t let you down,” McConnell pledged. “The U.S. Senate will be a place Tom Coburn can be proud of again.”

But in an interview with the NY Times McConnel abruptly changed courses and promised to crush conservatives in 2014:
“This election season, Republicans led by Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky are taking a much harder line as they sense the majority within reach. Top congressional Republicans and their allies are challenging the advocacy groups head on in an aggressive effort to undermine their credibility. The goal is to deny them any Senate primary victories, cut into their fund-raising and diminish them as a future force in Republican politics.
“I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” Mr. McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, said in an interview, referring to the network of activist organizations working against him and two Republican incumbents in Kansas and Mississippi while engaging in a handful of other contests. “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”

What do you think, should we abandon our values so Mitch McConnell can be Sen Majority Leader? He did promise, he’ll change and represent the voter if elected at CPAC before promising to crush conservatives.
Depending on whom he’s addressing McConnell, like Sen Cornyn speaks out of both sides of his mouth. Is FBCGOP Chair Mike Gibson taking his orders from Senator Cornyn, who is taking his orders from Sen McConnell. Sounds like they want to get along and go along instead of standing up to the left. Should conservatives be allowed in the FBCGOP and RNC?
It is time to stand up to the anti-conservatives in the FBCGOP and the RNC, for your conservative values. Time to show up, stand up, and speak up.
By FBCStaff-The FBC Chamber is hosting a County Wide Municipal and School Board Candidate Forum on March 3rd, 11:00 am till 2:00 pm at the Missouri City City Centre, 11:00am till 2:00pm on April 3rd.
The Missouri City is proud to show case the new City Centre in hosting the chamber’s forum. You’ll learn a little about the candidates and their positions on the issues, making your vote an informed one. Sign up and attend this event.
By FBCStaff-We’ve looked at FBCGOP Chair Mike Gibson’s relationship with FBCGOP Treasure Pat Baig and her anti social-conservative views, and his support of Mark McCaig and his attacks on conservative republicans. Now we have of clearer picture of the FBCGOP Chair, who he represents and his agenda.
The obvious answer is the Sen Cornyn/Speaker Straus moderate wing of the party. While that is good for the anti social-conservatives and the moderate republicans who work for the county, but where does that leave the rest of the party?
Chair Gibson has made many mistakes, moving the LRD and losing money, appointing a divisive anti social-conservative to treasure, and supporting a lapdog for a democrat lawyer, but he seems oblivious to the direction he is taking the party. The FBCGOP Chair seems to be more interested in having his picture taken with elected officials than leading the party.
The strong party built by former chair and now Tx State Rep Miller is merely a shell of itself floundering from his lack of leadership. Attendance at EC meetings is down and his answer seems to be to change the party by-laws from 50% to 25% of the precinct chairs present to have a quorum.
Is that the direction you want the party to take, a divided party, strongly anti social-conservative and a party ok with losing elections? How can anyone justify giving up on the County Commissioner Seat with out even a fight? FBCGOP Chair Gibson challenged the democrats on this seat and when they responded to his challenge he retreated. Or do you want a party chair that will stand up for our values, fight for what we believe, and one who serves all members?
Next EC meeting is March 10th, details to come? It is March 9th and details to come?
One way to avoid having attendance is not announce where it will be held until the last minute. The FBCGOP Chair’s lackadaisical attitude seems to be, “no need to attend I’ve got this.” My advice to conservatives is to attend at your own risk, if you can find out where the meeting is being held.
When Pam Geller spoke in Sugar Land about what the sharia forbids, democrats protested her speaking, http://pamelageller.com/2011/10/sro-in-texas.html/ But the democrats outside protesting were not the only ones wanting to deny her right to free speech, inside FBCGOP Treasure Pat Baig was trying to intimidate, social-conservatives and Christians for being at the meeting by taking their picture. We fully understand the democrats being intolerant and there is no room in the democrat party for Christian values, but there is room under the FBCGOP big tent. Gibson’s leadership team needs to be more tolerant.
PS I’ve written FBCGOP Chair Gibson and told him I expect an apology for the behavior of his leadership team who attacked me as I was minding my own business and leaving the last EC meeting. So far no response from the chair.
By FBCStaff-All tax payer funded government programs, even those started with good intentions are subject to being looted by trail lawyers:
“Mostyn, who said he has made “north of $100 million” from lawsuits related to hurricane claims, still has about a dozen TWIA cases pending and stands to make even more money with that litigation.”
read more http://www.texastribune.org/2014/03/09/political-storm-erupts-over-ike-claims/
The TWIA has been democrat super donor Steve Mostyn’s money tree. Conservative republican Mark McCaig is an associate of the Mostyn law firm. Can Abbott stop the flow of money from tax payers to Mostyn to donate to democrat candidates:
“Responding to an inquiry by state Rep. John Smithee, R-Amarillo, Attorney General Greg Abbott declared this week that the state has no legal obligation to pay for any storm damage incurred by TWIA policyholders if the agency runs out of money to pay out its claims.
In his opinion, Abbott said that when the Legislature created TWIA — the insurance provider for coastal residents who cannot get insurance elsewhere — it mandated that TWIA make payments on insurance claims from revenue generated by the agency.
“The Legislature has decided, however, that that a public security issued under chapter 2210 ‘is not a debt of this state or any state agency or political subdivision of this state and does not constitute a pledge of faith and credit to this state,’” Abbott said.”

Democrat and the Speaker Straus moderates are known for starting these semi-private government agencies, sometimes with good intentions. But they can become easy pickings for lawyers who have had their large settlements curtailed by Texas Lawsuit Reform caps.
Sen Taylor, Lt Guv Dewhurst and Gen Abbott have slowed the looting for the time being. But look for the trail lawyers like Mostyn to find other government programs to plunder.

The main reason the Texas primaries were so important is by electing conservatives, perhaps we can continue to slow the law suit abuse of government programs by the Straus moderates and the democrats.
Mostyn is a prolific donor to democrats http://www.publicintegrity.org/2012/09/28/11000/donor-profile-steve-and-amber-mostyn
Democrat donor Lawyer Mostyn uses shills like conservative republican Mark McCaig to run deceptive PACs http://stoptlr.com/blog/?p=527 and http://www.politifact.com/texas/statements/2012/may/25/conservative-voters-texas-pac/conservative-pac-says-larry-taylor-gave-state-tuit/
But is Mark McCaig a conservative republican as FBCGOP Chair Mike Gibson so adamantly claims?
Austin, TX—Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) today denounced the activities of former YCT member Mark McCaig and demanded that he stop using the organization’s name to attack conservative candidates. McCaig, who recently joined the personal injury law firm of ultra-liberal Democrat super funder Steve Mostyn, has launched a deceptively named–PAC called Conservative Voters of Texas and is using the PAC and his credentials as a former member of YCT to attack conservative members of the Legislature.
http://www.yct.org/young-conservatives-of-texas-denounce-mark-mccaig/ Why would YCT take McCaig to task over his deceptive actions?
It is time to take a stand on conservative principles, stop the looting and the smears of conservatives. This primaries Texas voters did their part by electing conservatives to stop the looting in Austin. Will you do your part and show up, stand up and speak up? Will you tell FBCGOP Chair Gibson and his group to stop attacking conservatives?
By FBCStaff-There are some who claim to be conservatives but their actions give us a bad reputation. There are many PACs with conservative sounding names funded to attack conservatives. Then there’s the republicans who claim to be fiscally conservative but are strongly anti social-conservative. A good example is a group claiming to be the Fort Bend Libertarians on face book and also use the name of Missouri City Concerns on face book to spread misinformation with personal attacks. This group led by Pat Baig , who gave money to a democrat to run against Rep Tom Delay and took out an ad in the newspaper disparaging Rep Delay. It didn’t matter that the charges were false and Rep Delay was later acquitted. Baig is openly pro-choice and there is no conservative principle more honorable than protecting the unborn. One has to wonder what ax does FBCGOP Chair Mike Gibson have to grind with social-conservatives that he would appoint such a divisive anti social-conservative person to be an officer in the FBCGOP? Baig and Gibson actions have left little doubt they are in alliance against the social conservatives in the FBCGOP.
Baig’s group while proclaiming to be strict constitutionalists openly supports democrats like Noel Pinnock, while accusing republicans of supporting democrats. How crazy is that?
Here’s a couple of examples of the group’s ad hominem attacks:
Kevin Tunstall And here we have our “conservative” Constable. He too is backing a “liberal” for election. Isn’t that wonderful? Will I see Al Green give support for Bobby Hebert next? Don’t be surprised if that happens in Fort Bend County. After all, it isn’t about principles, it is about money.
Kevin Tunstall It is difficult to vote for “the person” when they all receive remuneration from the very forces that are working against your better interests. You cannot simply go by the voting record. You have to see who is funding their campaign efforts. This can take an exhaustive amount of time for the individual. That is one of the purposes of this site.
Troy Nehls This is not me. If you are going to post something, be accurate. My brother is simply posing for a picture with a friend.
Tunstall is using misinformation to try to smear Nehls but looks foolish and fails miserably.
and mouthpiece Yvonne Larson:
Yvonne Larsen Early Vote numbers in Dem primary—for party chair Donald Bankston gets 4018 votes—but Ron Reynolds only gets 2183–guess some folks forgot to vote for Ron!
Yvonne Larsen Fort Bend County Clerk reporting ( unofficial) 4115 votes for Ron with 429 under votes…guess some folks skipped voting for Ron…
Yvonne Larsen Fort Bend County Clerk reporting ( unofficial)…Democrat Party Chair Bankston gets 7159 votes with 1384 under votes….
Ron Reynolds Yvonne, you are being very deceptive in your reporting. I received less undervotes than ANY other State Rep candidate in Fort Bend County (Dem & GOP). Only 429 people are 9.44% of the voters skipped my race. Whereas my Republican challenger had 1,117 people skip his race a whopping 24.93% and Rick Miller had 2,767 people skip his race, which is 24.25%. Finally, Don Bankston was running county wide and I only in District 27 (1/3 of the county) If your going to report then please report the whole FACTS and not just your slanted bias!!!
Ron Reynolds I’m proud to have such strong support from my constituents. That is the reason why I didn’t have a primary challenger. Moroever, I’m the only candidate for State Rep that is endorsed by both Democrat and Republican elected officials!
Bless her heart, Larson is determined to go down with the ship:
Yvonne Larsen The numbers are sourced from the County Clerk
Yvonne simple doesn’t “get it”, she doesn’t comprehend that Bankston has a larger pool of voters. But a lack of knowledge doesn’t stop her personal attack:
Yvonne Larsen If you define “bias” as NOT being under felony indictment—then you would be correct; Yvonne Larsen is NOT under felony indictment
Yvonne Larsen http://co.fort-bend.tx.us/modules/showdocument.aspx
She not only doesn’t grasp the logistics of the voting pool, and she condemns Rep Reynolds without giving him the benefit of a trial. Here’s how Larson bills herself:
About Yvonne Larsen
Yvonne Larsen is a sales executive to international oil & gas companies and lives in Fort Bend County, Texas. She is a constitutional conservative & advocate for free market economies and private property rights. All statements & opinions expressed by Yvonne are hers.
Under our constitution aren’t we all presumed innocent till proven guilty?
These are not conservatives but malcontents who hide behind the conservative name using misinformation and personal attacks.
A conservative stands on principles:
“You win elections by standing for principle and inspiring people that there is a better tomorrow,” said Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, among a group of potential 2016 presidential hopefuls appearing at the conference.”

Conservatives stand on principle, for smaller government and smaller taxes and leave the ad hominem attacks to the anti social-conservatives, the malcontents and the uninformed.
Join the fight and show up, stand up and speak up!

Runoff- May 27, 2014.
Election results can be confusing so be wary of some “experts.” I observed one making an issue out of a party chair getingt more votes than one of the Tex reps. The reason is the party chair represents all four of the Tex Rep’s districts so naturally the chair should get more votes. The “expert” most likely is confused about how Texas politics works. But if you want the facts the Fort Bend Conservative delivers.
see results statewide @ https://team1.sos.state.tx.us/enr/results/mar04_169.htm
for the county @ http://www.fortbendcountytx.gov/modules/showdocument.aspx?documentid=19685
FBCStaff-We have a very important primary election facing us in 2014, do not waste your vote. I’m attaching a link from a group that is very informed and knowledgeable about the candidates. I will address some of their choices and vacancies.
Texas Conservative view http://www.texasconservativeview.com/endorsements_2014_republican_primary_endorsements.htm
Use them to help make your own decision.
Sen Cornyn does not represent us or Texas values. Rep Stockman is a conservative and could force a runoff. The other conservative worth mentioning in the race is Dwayne Stovall.
Lt Guv Sen Patrick-Patrick will have the intestinal fortitude to make public policy that will keep Texas conservative.
Ag Commissioner-Anybody who can cook bar B Que like Joe Cotton has my vote.
FT Bend Cty races:
Judge Court of Criminal Appeals Place 9 David Newell
District Judge 268th Judicial District Brady Elliott
DA 268th Judicial District John Healey
Judge County Court at Law No 1 Chris Morales
Judge County Court at Law No 4 Warren Diepraam
District Clerk Annie Rebecca Elliott
Justice of the Peace, Place 2 Mary Ward
The rest I’ll defer to their choices as they are a whole lot smarter and more informed.
But when all else fails vote for the most conservative. Don’t waste your vote by under voting or not voting.
****We’re in the primary election season, not municipal or FBISD they are in May do not get distracted****
