'Draft Beto' effort builds momentum


Local elections have consequences-Harris County Bail lawsuit

In 2016 with significant financial support from Soros, Harris County elected Kim Ogg as the new district attorney. Kim has already effectively decrim pot and has been attempting to reform the bail system. The Harris County bail system results in a large number of individuals being in jail who are not dangerous but who cannot make bail. The system is supported by the bail bond industry and by a group of GOP misdemeanor judges. In 2018, we voted out of office all GOP judges including the GOP judges who were trying to block the reform of the bail system. Guess what happened?

Congress is now 3 times more Jewish than the United States as a whole

This was posted by one of the members of the executive committee for the Texas state Democratic Party https://www.jta.org/2019/01/03/politics/congress-is-now-3-times-more-jewish-than-the-united-states-as-a-whole?fbclid=IwAR1E2c2KlWdH-mZUDAT-3evOUluzxdSWCqrVOnqjU3FfiYazLz5ndemhhb4#.XC-vN6kpMgA.facebook

More than 6 percent of the new Congress is Jewish, with 34 Jews among the total of 535 lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate.

Jews make up 2 percent of the U.S. population, so Congress as a whole is more than thrice as Jewish as the country in general, according to a new study by the Pew Research Center on religion in the new Congress, which was inaugurated Thursday.

The number is even larger in the Senate, where eight of the 100 members are Jewish. That’s 8 percent, for the math challenged.
This Congress has four more Jews than its predecessor, which had 30 Jewish members. But it’s far from the most Jewish Congress ever. That was the 1993 Congress, which boasted 51 Jews — nearly 10 percent of the total.
