Deep State Republican Congressman Defends Pelosi Against President Trump

Published

on

Notable Never Trump congressman Will Hurd attacked President Donald Trump for his allegedly “doctored” video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

A video that President Donald Trump recently shared on social media has been making waves during the past few days. Critics argued that the video was digitally modified in order to make Pelosi appear to be impaired while giving a speech.

Trump shared a Fox news video from “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that showed numerous verbal pauses from the House Speaker.

Hurd commented on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that “You shouldn’t disseminate information that you know is ultimately doctored.”

The Texas congressman argued that “this is going to escalate this debate and this fight.”

He added that “We have old laws to decide how you handle disinformation” and that America has “leaders that don’t understand how this technology can be used in the future.”

Hurd concluded with the following:

“This goes back into this whole conversation around disinformation and how are we dealing with it, and it’s not just the government alone. It’s not just the social media companies. It’s also the media, academia involved in trying to do this.”

Hurd has built a track record in the House for siding with the establishment on issues like universal gun registration and his vote to end the government shutdown without funding President Trump’s border wall. Before Trump was elected, Hurd was a strong opponent of Trump saying that “Trump should step aside for “a true conservative” to step in.”

For that reason, it is no surprise why Hurd is attacking Trump at the moment.

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.
