The new Texas GOP State Chair Allen West is not playing around.
After recently taking control of the position of State Chair, West has made it a point to call out the Texas GOP establishment.
Brandon Waltens of Texas Scorecard highlighted how West called out Governor Greg Abbott’s series of executive orders with regards to the Wuhan virus and spineless Republicans who have joined Democrats in attempts to erase American history.
Since his successful campaign for State Chair, West has been on a media blitz and reaching out to disgruntled grassroots conservatives. He also took Republicans to task in their flaccid response to the cultural Left’s radicalism.
Waltens noted one case of Republican cowardice that got on West’s nerves:
The first major example came after the U.S. House of Representatives voted to remove statues of individuals who fought for the Confederacy from the U.S. Capitol. While the push was led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrat congressmen, they found unlikely allies in a minority of Republican legislators, including six from Texas: Michael Burgess of Flower Mound, Van Taylor of Plano, Dan Crenshaw of Houston, Michael McCaul of Austin, Will Hurd of San Antonio, and Pete Olson of Sugar Land.
When he went on Fox and Friends on July 24, West criticized “cancel culture” and the Left’s iconoclasm.
“I will tell you, I have never met a Confederate general that offended me,” declared West. He then cited his service at two military bases—Fort Bragg and Fort Hood—which were named in honor of Confederate generals.
“We are just responding to this mob, this cancel culture, and as long as we continue to believe we can acquiesce, appease, and compromise with them, it just emboldens them. And so, I would say, ‘Sit in the corner, shut up, and get out of the business of worrying about the names of military installations.’”
West really stirred the pot by criticizing the executive orders that came out of Abbott’s office.
“One of the things that I believe in is the rule of law and that we are supposed to be governed by our elected officials and not ruled by our elected officials,” declared West. “I’m not too much a fan of executive orders, edicts, mandates, and directives.”
Although West conceded that executive orders may be justified in the case of emergencies, he said, “You have to come back to the Legislature if you want to continue to send out orders.”
In addition, West was in disagreement with Abbott’s statewide mask mandate and described several decisions by local officials as “draconian.”
West’s leadership is long overdue.
BLP previously reported on West’s desire to carry out the will of Texas grassroots conservatives by making Constitutional Carry a legislative priority.
West will need to continue pressuring the GOP and he will need the full support of the Texas grassroots if conservatives want to see their legislative items move forward
Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
