Texas And Arkansas Just Took The Gloves Off In The Battle For Queso Supremacy

So the Wall Street Journal just fired shots in the queso war between Texas and Arkansas, and people are choosing sides.


This story was quickly picked up by Arkansas Senator, Tom Cotton, who put Texas Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn ?on blast.?


People immediately dragged Sen. Tom Cotton for calling it “cheese dip.”


This senator might experience a “dip” in his approval ratings. Sorry not sorry.

But “cheese dip” is what it’s called in Arkansas.


One could argue referring to “queso” as “cheese dip” would be like if  “carnitas tacos” were called “mashed corn discs with dead pig parts.” It just sounds wrong.

Anyway, Arkansas claims that cheese dip was created in by Blackie Donnally, when he figured out how to melt cheese.


There’s more to it than that. Watch the video below for the full story.

Blackie sold his cheese dip at “Mexico Chiquito,” a restaurant he opened in 1935.


There’s even an entire documentary, “In Queso Fever: A Movie About Cheese Dip,” that covers the discovery of Arkansas cheese dip.


And that would be the story of queso, except for proud Texans:

Texans aren’t going to let Arkansas have “cheese dip” without a fight.


This cheese dip/queso rivalry is up there with the glory days of Texas Longhorns v. Arkansas Razorbacks.

Texas Senator John Cornyn even fired back a response to Sen. Tom Cotton.


Ted Cruz hasn’t released an official tweet yet, presumably because he’s busy with official senator work.


In the meantime, Texans are voicing their anger via social media.



Even respectable publications, like “Texas Monthly,” weighed in on behalf of queso.


Texas journalists broke their oath to neutrality to rain on cheese dip’s parade.


Queso is very special to people in Texas. The Tex-Mex staple is what people miss most when they leave:


Texans will blacklist restaurants that don’t serve the warm, velvety treat.

Texans don’t need fancy wine and cheese. They have Mexican martinis and queso.


There’s even a comedy club in Austin, Texas, called “The Velveeta Room.”


As Texas and Arkansas argue over rights to melted cheese, one author is working to uncover the true origins of queso.

According to research from Lisa Fain, author of The Homesick Texan, queso most likely originated in northern Mexico. Lisa, told the Wall Street Journal, that the tasty treat started “as a side dish that mixed chile peppers, onions, seasoning and a small amount of white cheese.” From there, the meal spread to the U.S. faster than pink eye in a daycare.

So let Texas and Arkansas argue over their beloved dishes. The real winner in this is anyone who loves queso… or cheese dip.


And while we’re on the topic, don’t ever bring this abomination to a party.

Nice catch. #NoDipLeftBehind #BringTheParty #TOSTITOS

There’s a special circle of hell reserved for people who bring this jar of glop to a party.

Five Migrant Girls Were Found Left Alone And Abandoned In The Texas Heat

Five Migrant Girls Were Found Left Alone And Abandoned In The Texas Heat

This past March, according to El Pais, migrants crossed the Rio Grande at an all-time high not seen in the past 15 years. US government reports underlined that a total of 171,000 people arrived at the southern border of the United States in March. Eleven percent were minors who made the journey by themselves.

Reports say that this vulnerable group will continue to grow in size with recent shifts in the Biden administration child immigration policies. Five migrants girls recently found by the river recently became part of this group.

An onion farmer in Quemado recently reported that he found five migrant girls on his land.

The girls were each under the age of seven, the youngest was too small to even walk. Three of the girls are thought to be from Honduras, the other two are believed to have come from Guatemala.​ Jimmy Hobbs, the farmer who found the girls, said that he called the Border Patrol gave the children aid by giving them water and food and putting them in the shade.

“I don’t think they would have made it if I hadn’t found them,” Hobbs told US Rep. Tony Gonzalez (R-Texas) in a New York Post. “Because it got up to 103 yesterday.”

“My thoughts are that it needs to stop right now. There are going to be thousands. This is just five miles of the Rio Grande,” Hobbs’ wife added in their conversation with Gonzalez. “That’s a huge border. This is happening all up and down it. It can’t go on. It’s gonna be too hot. There’ll be a lot of deaths, a lot of suffering.” 

“It is heartbreaking to find such small children fending for themselves in the middle of nowhere,” Chief Border Patrol Agent Austin Skero II explained of the situation in an interview with ABC 7 Eyewitness News. “Unfortunately this happens far too often now. If not for our community and law enforcement partners, these little girls could have faced the more than 100-degree temperatures with no help.”

According to reports, the Customs and Border Protection stated that the five girls​ ​will be processed and placed in the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services.​

Doctored Image Of Ted Cruz In BDSM Gear Is Going Viral

An altered image of Sen. Ted Cruz in full BDSM gear is popping up all over social media right now. The conservative senator has sparked outrage from the nation several times during his career as a politician. Who could forget him taking a vacation to Mexico as Texans died from power outages connected to extreme winter weather?

This image of Sen. Ted Cruz first showed up in San Antonio.


Where you been Ted?! #fledcruz #cancruz #satx

The photo has gone viral on social media after being photographed in San Antonio. The doctored image put Sen. Cruz’s face on the half-naked body of a man wearing a leather chest harness, leather boots, small underwear, gloves, and holding a riding crop. The body has “PROUD BOYS” tattooed across the stomach.

Some are offended for the man whose body is used in the image.

The image has sparked a conversation about fat, slut, and queer-shaming. It is never okay to shame people for their bodies, their sexual orientation, or their sexuality. The acting of shaming these things creates humiliation and dangerous prejudices against people.

But, the use of this imagery has a very specific and pointed message.

Sen. Cruz has a long history of opposing Pride parades, marriage equality, and the inclusion of LGBTQ+ people in nondiscrimination orders. The senator also made headlines during his campaign for president for hiring an adult entertainer in an attack ad against Marco Rubio.

One of Sen. Cruz’s ads featured Amy Lindsay, who had a history of appearing in softcore pornographic films. The Cruz campaign tapped her to act in the ad and pulled it just as quickly when Lindsay’s acting history came to light.

Sen. Cruz is up for reelection in 2024.

Seems safe to say that some Texans are already trying to launch their own campaigns to defeat Sen. Cruz. The 2018 race for his seat against Beto O’Rourke showed the potential for unseating the incumbent as the demographics continue to shift in the Lone Star State. The 2020 election also showed that Texas could turn blue sooner than most ever expected.
