Ted Cruz Delegate and Texas GOP Leader Declares He’s a White Nationalist

An influencial member of the Texas Republican Party’s 2018 platform committee proudly declared himself a racist “white nationalist,” according to The Texas Observer.

Ray Myers, 74, is very familiar with the political process. After serving as a delegate for Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) presidential campaign, the GOP operative worked as a volunteer for President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. Myers, has been involved in Republican politics for decades, The Texas Observerreports. He told Empower Texans that “the pivotal political moment came when Obama came on the scene. I knew immediately that America was in trouble.”

On November 27, 2018, the platform committee member wrote on Facebook, “Damn right, I’m a WHITE NATIONALIST and very proud of it.”

“I am (white) Anglo, and I’m very proud of it, just like Black people and brown people are proud of their race,” Myers told the Observer. “And white nationalist, all that means is America first. That’s exactly what that means. That’s where the president’s at. That’s where I’m at, and that’s where every solid patriotic American is. It doesn’t have anything to do with race or anything else.”

Myers blamed the media rather than history for the term’s current negative connotations and asked, “Is there anything wrong with saying they’re Black and proud? Is there anything wrong with being an American Indian and saying that we’re red and proud?

According to The Hill, Myers has been unafraid to use the BLM movement to support his pro-white views.

“I mean, just like Black Lives Matter, white lives matter, too,” Myers has said. “We’re all in the same melting pot. Now, why can’t we say, as Anglos, that we’re proud?”

J.T. Edwards, a Black member of State Republican Executive Committee, denounced Myers’ remarks shortly after they were posted. However, he does not think Myers’ opinions represent any larger opinions within the party.

“To have so-called white nationalists in our party is basically an abomination of the very foundations of the Republican Party,” Edwards said. “If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Mr. Myers’ position is part of the problem.”

Foreign investors, mainly Oligarchs from Russia, acquired at least 1.6 million acres of U.S. agricultural land in 2016, the largest increase in more than a decade, according to a review by the Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting of the latest available federal data.

The data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture show that foreign investors control—either through direct ownership or long-term leases—at least 28.3 million acres, valued at $52.2 billion. That area is about the size of the state of Ohio.

“Foreign integration into the United States agribusiness sector has been steadily increasing over the last few decades,” agricultural law experts Marisa Bocci, Kari Larson and Paulina Wu wrote in a September 2018 report published in the Drake Journal of Agricultural Law.

The state with the most foreign ownership and investment is Maine, which has 3.1 million acres that are foreign-controlled, followed closely by Texas at 3 million acres.

Estimates of foreign ownership of agriculture land may be underreported as data can be inconsistent and the latest release is more than two years old. Still, it gives a strong indication of amount of foreign ownership and lease information.

Already, six states have laws banning foreign ownership of farmland. Those states are Hawaii, Iowa, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Dakota and Oklahoma.

Yes, you read that right: President Trump is defending his decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria, saying, “It’s not our problem,” and that “they’ve got a lot of sand over there. There’s a lot of sand they can play with.”

He said the Kurds, longtime U.S. allies, are “much safer right now,” and added, “They’re not angels.”

Trump has been facing severe bipartisan criticism for having U.S. forces stand aside as the Turks moved into northeast Syria last week to attack the Kurds, who were allies of the United States in the campaign against Islamic State.

Trump spoke at a photo opportunity before meeting with Italian President Sergio Mattarella on Wednesday. The two are also holding a joint news conference.

The New York Times is reporting that, responding to the Ukraine scandal, Trump aide John Bolton warned “Giuliani’s a hand grenade who’s going to blow everyone up.”

Seems he was fired because he would have no part of President Donald Trump’s off-the-books shadow government Ukraine extortion scandal. Bolton also apparently implicated both the president’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, and the president’s acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvany.

“I am not part of whatever drug deal Rudy and Mulvaney are cooking up,” Bolton told senior director for Russian and Eurasian affairs Fiona Hill to tell White House lawyers, The New York Times reports in a bombshell article late Monday night.

Bolton, who resigned from the Trump administration hours before President Trump tweeted he had fired him, instructed Hill “to notify the chief lawyer for the National Security Council that Mr. Giuliani was working with Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, on a rogue operation with legal implications,” Hill told House of Representatives investigators on Monday.
