Chair of the Maryland Young Republican Group that Compared President Donald Trump to Dysentery is a Guest of Mike Pence

Published

Criticizing the Trump administration appears to be no longer a third rail among Republican operatives.

In fact, you may still be rewarded by GOP leadership despite making these comments.

A source close to BLP revealed that on August 23, 2020 Maria Sofia, the chairman of the Maryland Young Republicans received an invitation to Vice President Mike Pence’s acceptance speech at the Republican nomination. Pence’s speech is set to take place on August 26, 2020 in Fort McHenry, Maryland.

In one of her Facebook posts, she stated “It’s not everyday you get asked to attend the Vice President’s speech at the convention in your home state. Honored to be able to attend with some of Maryland’s own Republicans.

Curiously, Sofia is part of a Republican group whose Twitter account liked a tweet by Brian Griffiths, a liberal Republican activist who compared Trump to dysentery in a Tweet he made on August 5.

He tweeted, “There’s a reason: 1. Larry Hogan was overwhelmingly re-elected 2. Trump’s less popular in Maryland than dysentery 3. You’ve never been involved in a winning campaign.”

Serious GOP activists should be asking themselves this: Why are Republicans so lax in their party discipline standards?

Previous comments such as these are indicative of a subversive base within the GOP that is not on the same wavelength with President Trump’s political agenda.

America First is now the reality in the GOP, and those that are not on the same page (especially those who disparage the President) have no business being invited to high profile functions.

Better yet, they should be shown the door. They are probably a better fit with the neocons and Never Trumpers that are now joining the Democrat Party.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
