The No-Compromise Texas Republican Party Resolution Telling the Republican Governor to Immediately End His Entire Coronavirus Crackdown

The Republican Party of Texas executive committee has taken a heroic action that could serve as an example for Republican and Democratic parties across America. It has adopted, by a 54 to 4 vote, a resolution clearly and emphatically demanding that Texas Governor Greg Abbott immediately end all the liberty-repressing measures that, over the last six months while the state legislature has been in recess, Abbott has imposed unilaterally in the name of countering coronavirus.

CDC Director: No ‘Regular Life’ Until At Least the Middle of Next Year

Remember President Donald Trump saying he wanted things to open up in America by Easter? Oh well. Throughout most of America, the coronavirus crackdowns are continuing strong five months after Easter. And United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert R. Redfield said Wednesday at a US Senate subcommittee hearing that “regular life” will not begin to return until, he predicts, the “late second quarter, third quarter” of next year — around the middle of 2021.

Trump Wanted to Kill Assad? Really? RPI's Daniel McAdams Interview

Yesterday on Fox and Friends, President Trump played the tough guy, bragging that he had Syrian President Assad in his sights and wanted to "take him out" over the alleged sarin gas attack at Khan Shaykhun in 2017. It was only that "loser" General Mattis who held him back. RPI's Daniel McAdams is interviewed on RT to discuss Trump's revelations. Was it a lost opportunity to dispatch with a monster? Or is Trump hopelessly misinformed and in his blindness following the failed policies of his predecessor, Barack Obama? Is assassinating foreign leaders "putting America first"? Watch the interview...
