EL PASO, TEXAS — The former panhandle congressman made the announcement Wednesday that he is not going to challenge U.S. Sen. John Cornyn’s seat in 2020, according to reports.
The announcement comes fresh after former Texas U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s stunningly embarrassing defeat against U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, who is consistently ranked as only slightly more “likable” by comparison. In other news, Cruz is married to Goldman-Sachs co-conspirator Heidi Cruz and forgot to disclose his massive loans from the bank that engineered the 2008 global collapse.
None of the aforementioned matter as much to Texans as the fact that Beto was a Democrat with a criminal record, and parents engaged in the shipment and distribution of Heroin.
Simply put, Texas voters decided that — even if a candidate smells — it’s no reason to elect a pile of cow droppings.
“Amy and I have made a decision about how we can best serve our country,” he said in an exclusive statement to The Dallas Morning News. “We are excited to share it with everyone soon.”
O’Rourke explained that in the wake of his historic defeat by Cruz, he is weighing how to “best serve the country.”
Since removing Cornyn from the table, O’Rourke may likely opt for a White House run, though he will join a large and competitive Democratic Party primary field, including a geriatric self-styled “socialist” with a fake Brooklyn accent, and a fake Native American squaw who’s never gotten a single bill signed into law her entire decades-long career in Congress.
Beto is certainly the most credible fake Mexican who may run for president, but is that enought?
O’Rourke’s decision not to challenge Sen. Cornyn is remeniscent of a man who “shoots for the stars,” and settles for a visit to his local planetarium.
Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020
Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.
Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued.
According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued.
Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”
The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”
Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.
Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.
2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
