Establishment Gun Lobby Provides Cover for Spineless House Speaker
Put a fork in Texas’s Constitutional Carry bill, HB 357.
On April 5, 2019 State Representative Jonathan Stickland cancelled his request for a committee hearing on his Constitutional Carry bill.
Stickland’s withdrawal of Constitutional Carry came after a Fake News outrage swept the state during the past week.
An otherwise peaceful block walking campaign conducted by Texas Gun Rights activist Chris McNutt recently drew the ire of House Speaker Dennis Bonnen.
BLP reported how McNutt peacefully left flyers in the districts of House lieutenants like Four Price and Dustin Burrows, and even in Bonnen’s district.
However, this was too much for the gatekeeping House Speaker who went as far as to say that McNutt’s peaceful actions were a demonstration of “insanity” and accused him of being an “overzealous advocate for criminals to get a gun.”
Even establishment gun lobbies like the Texas State Rifle Association (TSRA), a state affiliate of the NRA, provided cover for Bonnen in an email condemning McNutt’s actions and dismissing Texas Gun Rights as a “fringe gun group”.
In a podcast hosted by Derek Wills of Lone Star Gun Rights, National Association for Gun Rights (the parent organization of Texas Gun Rights) Political Director Chris Stone defended McNutt’s actions and set the record straight.
Stone asserted that “advocating for Constitutional Carry is not a fringe issue. It is the number #1 gun rights issue in every state legislature across the country.”
One of the silver linings of this encounter was Bonnen’s anti-gun Freudian slip.
In a Facebook post, Bonnen revealed his opposition to Constitutional Carry saying that Texas Gun Rights activists “want anyone – including criminals – to be able to carry a gun without a license and proper safety training.” This runs counter to the Constitutional Carry legislation in question, which only applies to individuals who are able to legally own a firearm.
I want to thank the Texas State Rifle Association – the state’s premier organization fighting for Second Amendment…
Bonnen’s talking point, which could pass up as language employed by anti-gun organizations such as Moms Demand Action, did not faze the TSRA in the slightest. They have still stood by the establishment House Speaker.
As BLP covered before, no-compromise gun rights activists in the Lone Star State fear that the political class in Austin is playing a dangerous game by not passing Constitutional Carry.
The more Texas kicks the can down the road, the more it leaves itself susceptible to anti-gun onslaughts. 2018 already saw Florida, a traditionally pro-gun state, fall to gun control pressure.
Will Texas be next?
The future remains unclear.
However, NAGR’s Chris Stone promised that the gun rights organization plans on “doubling down” the pressure on Texas politicians who refuse to follow through with one of the main planks of the Texas Republican Party platform—passing Constitutional Carry.
Regardless of what happens in the 2019 legislative session, the 2020 primary season is bound to be heated now that establishment Republicans in Texas have shown their true colors.
Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò Pens Open Letter to Donald Trump Explaining the Globalist “Great Reset” to “Subdue Humanity”
More shocking claims from the courageous, conservative archbishop.
Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has written another open letter to President Donald Trump warning of the encroaching dangers of globalism.
The entire letter can be read here. Viganò speaks of a “global plan called the Great Reset, in which a “global élite […] wants to subdue all of humanity, imposing coercive measures with which to drastically limit individual freedoms and those of entire populations.”
“The purpose of the Great Reset is the imposition of a health dictatorship aiming at the imposition of liberticidal measures, hidden behind tempting promises of ensuring a universal income and canceling individual debt. The price of these concessions from the International Monetary Fund will be the renunciation of private property and adherence to a program of vaccination against COVID-19 and COVID-21 promoted by Bill Gates with the collaboration of the main pharmaceutical groups,” Viganò wrote.
He also calls out Pope Francis, claiming he “has betrayed his role from the very beginning in order to defend and promote the globalist ideology, supporting the agenda of the deep Church, who chose him from its ranks.”
Despite painting a bleak picture, in true Christian fashion Viganò offers hope at the end of his letter:
The adversary does not know how to love, and it does not understand that it is not enough to assure a universal income or to cancel mortgages in order to subjugate the masses and convince them to be branded like cattle. This people, which for too long has endured the abuses of a hateful and tyrannical power, is rediscovering that it has a soul; it is understanding that it is not willing to exchange its freedom for the homogenization and cancellation of its identity; it is beginning to understand the value of familial and social ties, of the bonds of faith and culture that unite honest people. This Great Reset is destined to fail because those who planned it do not understand that there are still people ready to take to the streets to defend their rights, to protect their loved ones, to give a future to their children and grandchildren. The leveling inhumanity of the globalist project will shatter miserably in the face of the firm and courageous opposition of the children of Light. The enemy has Satan on its side, He who only knows how to hate. But on our side, we have the Lord Almighty, the God of armies arrayed for battle, and the Most Holy Virgin, who will crush the head of the ancient Serpent. “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31).
Mr. President, you are well aware that, in this crucial hour, the United States of America is considered the defending wall against which the war declared by the advocates of globalism has been unleashed. Place your trust in the Lord, strengthened by the words of the Apostle Paul: “I can do all things in Him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). To be an instrument of divine providence is a great responsibility, for which you will certainly receive all the graces of state that you need, since they are being fervently implored for you by the many people who support you with their prayers.
With this heavenly hope and the assurance of my prayer for you, for the first lady, and for your collaborators, with all my heart I send you my blessing.
God bless the United States of America!
Carlo Maria Viganò
Tit. archbishop of Ulpiana
Former apostolic nuncio to the United States of America
Big League Politics has covered Archbishop Viganò pretty closely. We reported on his accusation that the Deep State is working with what he calls the “Deep Church” in order to spread and strengthen globalist, neoliberal interests. We also reported on Robert Moynihan’s new book about the archbishop, titled Finding Vigano: In Search of the Man Whose Testimony Shook the Church and the World.
Again, you can read the archbishop’s entire letter here.
