In an opinion piece published in Saturday’s Washington Examiner, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a warning to the GOP that “Democrats in Washington, D.C. are plotting to pour hundreds of millions of dollars in state and local elections across the country” in an effort to buy back power.
The Sentinel has reported on this a number of times. Soros is attempting to buy seats with the idea of redrawing district lines once the seats are won. He, along with Barack Obama and Eric Holder, are planning to end any redistricting advantages the Republicans currently have. Soros has also been buying district attorney races and sheriff’s races.
Abbott pointed a finger at hedge fund billionaire George Soros, who is helping to fund the National Democratic Redistricting Committee so that it can take away control from voters, noting that congressional re-districting will go into effect in 2021, “when booming conservative states such as Texas will gain seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.”
One of the group’s goals, he said, is to reinstate Rep. Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. And there’s more.
“Headed by former Attorney General Eric Holder, the tax-exempt 527 political action committee plans a three-pronged attack to flood state-level races with outside money, to leverage activist courts to wrest control of state redistricting plans, and finally, with the formidable community organizing prowess of former President Barack Obama, to fund astroturfed ballot initiatives in the guise of ‘fairness,’” he wrote.
Obama’s tenure as President for eight years cost Democrats more than 900 state legislative seats and it was great for Republicans who won legislative chambers in 32 states, he said.
“Resoundingly rejected by voters, Democrats’ last hope is to pervert congressional district maps to subvert the will of the people,” stated Abbott as he laid out their plan.
“Every 10 years, states redraw their legislative and congressional districts based on Census population changes,” he explained, noting that because people are known to move to more successful communities, Texas has grown more than any state in the nation. And many of those new Texans once lived in Nancy Pelosi’s California.
“Less government, lower taxes, smarter regulations, and right-to-work laws — these are the pro-growth economic policies that help our homegrown businesses flourish and that attract employers to Texas from states that over-tax and over-regulate,” said Abbott, explaining that the conservative economic policies which have fostered such economic growth are threatened by “the Democrats’ plan to re-engineer Texas’ district maps to make them look like California’s maps.”
According to Abbott, “The Soros network has their sights set on re-drawing congressional districts in the Lone Star State to push their progressive agenda and turn the Texas dream into a California nightmare.”
In fact, “The Democrats are looking to re-draw hundreds of congressional districts across the nation,” stated Abbott, adding that Soros is no stranger to election “meddling”.
Soros’ modus operandi is to flood his chosen candidates with overwhelming amounts of cash to spend on negative campaigns. In 2016, he reportedly spent nearly $11 million on a dozen local district attorney races, including one in Harris County, Texas, said Abbott, noting that most of his selected candidates won.
“What Obama could not accomplish while in office, turning red states blue, he will attempt to do now through the machinations of this “super group” — a partisan focus unbecoming a former president,” said Abbott, who vows to keep Texas a bright, vibrant red and will run for re-election.
“I’m running for re-election to make sure that San Francisco liberals such as Pelosi will not be running our great state. I’m committed to preserving Texas’ liberty. And I will continue to fight back against the liberal agenda that threatens the future of our nation,” he stated, adding, “The GOP needs to take the Soros network and the Holder, Obama, and Pelosi alliance seriously.”
Making it clear that “the integrity of the people’s vote is at stake,” Abbott called on Republicans to take immediate action. “Complacency at the state and local level in 2018 will threaten the integrity of our elections and the future of our nation for generations to come.”
Democrats leave the areas their policies have ruined and move into successful right-leaning areas, forcing their bad policies on them. It happens over and over which is why our cities look like hellholes.
Why isn’t Soros being investigated? He is working hard to turn America into a Socialist nightmare.
