After a sabbatical of a few months, the Texas Citizen Journal is hitting the pavement again to provide you with the most reliable news and analysis of Texas politics.
Major beats we expect to cover over the next year include the 88th Texas Legislative Session, the ongoing saga of the Montgomery County Republican Party, and of course, the lead-up to the 2024 election.
Reflecting the broader polarization of American politics they have helped shape, the media institutions have become rabidly partisan and blind to their own biases. On the one hand, the legacy mainstream media exists in a left-wing bubble, incognizant of the blinders of their ideological dogma. On the other hand, the right-wing media eco-system is largely a brain-dead hellscape dominated by click-bait and intellectually vapid red meat for the base.
The Texas Citizen Journal’s mission is to chart an independent path, different from both the left-leaning legacy media and the right-wing click-bait websites. We are an island of reason in the sea of political insanity.
Our ideology is conservatism. Not the crackpot nuttery of reactionary populism that now colloquially masquerades as “conservatism”, but rather, true conservatism, as embodied by Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater, and William F. Buckley. The Texas Citizen Journal strives to articulate the strongest principled conservative ideals and apply them to local, state, and (occasionally) national news.
However, although we are up front about our intellectual world-view, the Texas Citizen Journal is first and foremost a pursuit of truth. The truth is what is most important, and we do not hesitate to call it like we see it. We call balls and strikes, regardless of how it may reflect on our friends and foes alike. Truth is the highest virtue.
