The Battleground Texas campaign to turn Texas into a blue state still seems to be continuing as of March 26, 2017. The campaign homepage is located at http://www.battlegroundtexas.com/content/home
One advantage for the Democratic Party is the very strong support given by the mainstream media. This kind of bias is discussed in the very recently published book, Collusion: How the Media Stole the 2012 Election, by L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham. There are opportunities, however, for individuals to make contributions toward overcoming the aforementioned advantage by providing information online relevant to current issues at little or no cost. Dependent upon the level of participation, there would seem to be potential for making a difference.

More about Books:
A list of some relevant books along with information about whether they are available at the Austin Public Library has been posted here.
Pflugerville residents can obtain an Austin Public Library card. Books can be reserved online to be delivered to the closest Austin branch library (e.g., Milwood Branch) for convenient pickup.
Very depressing. Muslim immigration into the United States should be stopped.
I know, I am a broken record on this issue and that it is more interesting to read about the rich kids at Harvardwanting refugees and about Muslim refugees facing trialskipping out on bail, but we have to address the boring numbers stuff too.

~President Obama set the ceiling for FY17 at 110,000 in his final months in office (he never set a ceiling that high in his previous 7 years).
~Donald Trump’s EO reset it at 50,000.
~As of today we are at 49,803 according toWrapsnet.
~The Supreme Court confirmed the 50,000 with a caveat. Anyone who could prove a “bona fide relationship” with a relative in the US or to an “entity” could come in above the 50,000 cap.

Maybe it would be best just to stop all Muslim immigration into the United States.
The news is not surprising, so I’m bringing this Breitbartarticle by Neil Munro to your attention so I can once again mention the words “assimilate” and “integrate” in the Left/Open Borders agitators’ lexicon.
Linda Sarsour is the American-born daughter of Palestinian immigrant parents according towikipediaand she is making news almost on a daily basis as she champions the cause of Islam in the age of Trump.
Here is Munro in a story entitled: ‘Muslim Immigrants Must Not Assimilate, Says Progressive Ally Linda Sarsour’
Muslims in the United States should not assimilate into American society, but should instead act “to please Allah and only Allah,” said Linda Sarsour, a rising star among progressive Democrats, last weekend.
Sarsour’s remarks were part of a July 1 speech given at the annual meeting of the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA.
Sarsour’s speech was peppered with refusals to integrate
