GOP not that divided

Re: “three factions battle for GOP — Gamers fall into camps of By no means Trump, Generally Trump or All the time Trump,” by Carl Leubsdorf, Thursday Opinion.

I used to be disillusioned to see a column by your former Washington, D.C., correspondent Carl Leubsdorf. I used to be so pleased when he lastly retired since he was usually clueless about native, state and nationwide politics, however there it was, with the identical dribble he at all times spewed when employed by The Dallas Morning Information.

The Republican Occasion isn’t practically as divided as he espouses and there may be definitely not an influence wrestle between by no means, generally and at all times Trumpers. Nobody within the celebration cares what Sen. Mitch McConnell has to say — he won’t ever be the chief of the celebration. Nikki Haley was and is a robust supporter of Trump insurance policies. Her camp emphatically claims that the Politico “reporter” selectively edited her statements from an extended interview. After all, most “journalists” are fairly good at that recreation.

Haley and most conservatives know that politicians are instruments. Former President Trump was a instrument elected by conservatives and independents in 2016 to destroy the divisive left-wing insurance policies applied throughout the Obama years.

Trump was very efficient! He’ll proceed to be an enormous affect within the celebration and no politician or court docket will have the ability to change that truth. Within the coming months and years, Democrats will overplay their hand, as they at all times do. We are going to win again a majority within the Home and Senate within the midterms and, alongside the best way, conservatives will likely be looking ahead to the best instrument to win the presidency and end destroying the damaging Obama legacy.

It might be Trump, Mike Pence, Haley, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Gov. Greg Abbott or a number of others. Relaxation assured that the left’s cancel tradition will hold conservatives united to assist freedom of speech and the entire liberties granted us by God and the Structure.

Who represents you?

Re: “Convict Trump: Senators, look past primaries to legacies,” Feb. 13 editorial.

Your very well-written editorial pleading for our two senators to vote their conscience shows the conceitedness of our present Congress. Maybe the argument that impeachment proceedings can solely be utilized to a sitting officeholder is appropriate and that the entire occasion was a circus of political motion. However, the chaplain’s name in his opening prayer was ignored.

Our Texas Legislature is in session and has its personal moral issues. A big one going through the members at present is drawing the strains of voting districts for use for the subsequent decade. Do, or ought to, any of us suppose they are going to rise to the extent of conscience that can trigger them to redraw the boundaries on the idea of inhabitants and never ethnicity? These individuals appear to have misplaced the understanding that being a legislator or an government in our political system was not designed to be a profession. We should rely upon our newspeople to maintain us knowledgeable factually in order that we will handle our representatives with forceful letters. Are you aware who represents you?

Thanks for masking Parkland

Re: “Parkland COVID caregivers’ emotional toll climbs as deaths do — With every misplaced affected person, they hold greedy at hope,” by Sharon Grigsby, Sunday information column.

Thanks, as soon as once more, for reminding us of the very particular work being carried out day by day by heroes at our hospitals. We’re blessed to have people who commit their lives to look after the remainder of us.

We will all be taught from the unselfish devotion they’ve for his or her fellow human beings. And we’re lucky to have journalists who report it.

Column particulars caregivers’ stress

Sharon Grigsby’s shifting account of the Parkland Hospital Tactical Care Unit introduced me to tears. Whereas the inhabitants has unceasingly appreciated and honored these courageous caregivers everywhere in the nation, for the primary time, I used to be given the chance to really personalize the never-ending stress of their struggle for his or her sufferers.

One can hardly think about how they’re coping emotionally day after day. This remark most likely gained’t assist a lot, however I hope that, whereas hospitals are required to maintain monitor of deaths, these courageous, caring, giving women and men additionally hold monitor of the numbers of sufferers who have been in a position to go house due to their sacrifices. You’re making a distinction.

These two are true leaders

Many state residents like to consider Texas as its personal little nation. Some would even wish to secede from the Union. I wish to level out that secession will likely be not possible and not using a dependable energy grid. Texans additionally want dependable political leaders. “Solely the robust will survive” and Sen. Ted Cruz in Cancun? Save us!

Conversely, I wish to take a chance to thank two politicians who supplied commonsense management throughout the current winter storm. I obtained two emails from U.S. Rep. Van Taylor with data on warming station locales, ingesting water and plumbing recommendation. Much more essential, his e mail communicated empathy and compassion.

McKinney Mayor George Fuller went one step additional. He personally delivered scorching water, child formulation and blankets to McKinney residents in want. He gave out a private e mail for individuals to contact for assist. Thanks and appreciation to those two nice males. They deserve the title of chief.
