A young Republican in Texas has achieved quite the blow to Texas Democrats. Representative-Elect Mayra Flores made history as the first Mexican-born congresswoman on Tuesday for an open seat in a special congressional election, previously held by a Democrat.
Flores says her win should be a lesson to Democrats to not take the hispanic vote for granted. Additionally, her win could have a deep significance as to how President Biden and the Democrats have handled the immigration crisis.
Flores’ district stretches from east of San Antonio down to the southern border, “once a Democratic stronghold” reports Fox News, which added that then-President Obama carried the area by a whopping 22 points a decade ago.
“The Democrat Party has been in control here in South Texas for over 100 years and feel entitled to our vote. They feel they don’t have to do anything to earn our vote. And we sent a strong message to Washington, and we sent a strong message to Democrat Party that you have to get to work. If not, you’re going to get voted out,” Flores warned in an interview with Fox News the morning after her victory.
Fox News reported that when asked why the district’s two counties that border Mexico — Cameron and Hidalgo counties — swung heavily towards her, Flores answered “because I’m one of them and I’m also standing up for our values. God, family, our community. That’s who we are in South Texas. We’re all about hard work.”
Not only does Flores’ victory narrow by one seat the House Democrats’ already razor-thin majority in the chamber, but it also gives Republicans more momentum heading into November’s midterm elections, when they aim to flip other Democratic controlled Hispanic majority districts.
The far left are destroying the American dream. When I was little my family legally immigrated to America. They taught me conservative values: faith, family, & hard work. I will not let the far left & socialist policies by the Biden Administration destroy this great country #TX34 pic.twitter.com/43L4WzyNzr

Hunter Biden Faces Devastating Tax Charges, Adding to Legal Woes
In a significant legal blow to President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, a California indictment reveals a litany of tax charges, compounding his legal troubles after his earlier plea of not guilty to federal gun charges. Former Whitewater deputy counsel Sol Wisenberg emphasized on “FOX & Friends” the devastating nature of the indictment, considering it a vindication of IRS whistleblowers.
Furthermore, Wisenberg contends that the indictment could have surfaced much earlier, pointing to the IRS whistleblowers’ struggle to keep the investigation ongoing. The legal battle, which involved Judge Maryellen Noreika in a Delaware courtroom, prevented what Wisenberg calls a “hinky plea deal” from proceeding. According to reports from Fox News, the former counsel believes that the defense attorneys for Hunter Biden may have overreached in their plea deal negotiations, leading to the current legal turmoil.
The California indictment specifically accuses Hunter Biden of failing to pay nearly $200,000 in income tax for the year 2019. This follows his October plea of not guilty to federal gun charges in the District of Delaware, a case originating from a lengthy investigation.
As the legal noose tightens around Hunter Biden, the latest tax charges come at a critical time. House Republican leaders are gearing up for a vote next week on a measure that could formally initiate an impeachment inquiry into President Biden. The proposed inquiry revolves around potential connections between the president and his son’s business dealings, further intensifying the political and legal challenges faced by the Biden family.
The unfolding legal drama poses a serious threat to Hunter Biden’s reputation and, consequently, could impact the Biden administration’s stability as it faces increasing scrutiny from political adversaries.
