Dennis Bonnen Offers Pathetic Apology for Meeting with Grassroots Activist, Conservatives Aren’t Buying It

Published

on

The Texas Tribune reports that Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen is apologizing to House members for meeting with conservative activist Michael Quinn Sullivan.

He is specifically apologizing for the revealing information of his plan to attack fellow Republicans during the primary season. BLP reported on Bonnen’s political machinations, which have earned him considerable pushback from his Republican colleagues.

In an email to members of the Texas House, Bonnen said “I was stupid to take a meeting with an individual who has worked hard to divide our House.”

He added, “I said terrible things that are embarrassing to the members, to the House, and to me personally.”

Bonnen was referencing the June 12 meeting he had with Sullivan, the CEO of Empower Texans, who recorded his interaction with Bonnen and State Representative Dustin Burrows. This recording allegedly revealed Bonnen and Burrows’ plan to target 10 GOP members during the 2020 primaries in exchange for giving Empower Texans staff media credentials.

Sullivan then called on the two GOP leaders to “recant their false claims.” The Empower Texans CEO threatened to release the recording if they did not recant and has also sent the recording to certain Republicans who confirm his account of the encounter.

Bonnen firmly denies Sullivan’s accusations, while Burrows has not commented publicly on the issue.

On Tuesday, August 6, 2019, State Representative Tan Parker released a statement which undermined Bonnen’s apology and confirmed Sullivan’s allegations.

“I listened to the recording and it was very apparent that our Speaker and Caucus Chairman did engage in targeting specific members of the Republican Caucus,” Parker said. “I find this reckless ambition to be absolutely disgusting. Their actions directly contradict the bylaws and culture of our Caucus. The disparaging commentary that was also heard was the epitome of disrespect and a clear attack on the values of the Republican Party and the integrity we have established in the Texas House.”

Bonnen and other House colleagues have demanded that Sullivan release the entire recording, which has still not been made public. In a Tuesday email, which The Texas Tribune obtained, Bonnen reiterated his demand for the “entire unedited recording” to be released “so the House is no longer held hostage, and we can begin to heal.”

Sullivan scoffed at Bonnen’s apology to members of the House. He said on Twitter that Bonnen was only “apologizing for getting caught saying bad things.” The Empower Texans CEO then asked when Bonnen will “withdraw his false claims and lies” against him and whether the establishment Republican “apologize for making the unethical offer of official actions in exchange for attacking his targets.”

Things aren’t looking so bright in the Lone Star State.

A conservative bastion that has led on issues such as gun rights and business freedom, the state finds itself in an important political crossroads.

With Democrats over-performing in the 2018 elections, and a GOP that is internally unraveling, 2020 could prove to be a disastrous year for Texas Republicans.

The Texas GOP will need to get its house in order and live up to the many planks of its platform.

Its political relevance depends on it.

Bill Gates Believes Everything Won’t be Normal Until there is Widespread Vaccination in America

Published

on

LifeSite News reported that Microsoft founder Bill Gates believes life will not be the same after the Wuhan Virus subsides.

However, there’s a catch.

Things will not go back to “normal” until the population is “widely vaccinated.”

During an  interview with CBS This Morning, that went out on April 2, Gates predicted that people’s concerns about large public gatherings would be alleviated “once we have the vaccination.” This could potentially take 18 months to come about.

“Our foundation works a lot on diagnostics and vaccines,” Gates stated. Vaccine producers are the ones “that can really get things back on track where we’re not worried about large public gatherings.”

In Gates’ view, “there’s a lot of dialog between our foundation experts and the government,” about opening up life to normal activities after the pandemic is under control.

“Which activities, like schools, have such benefit and can be done in a way that the risk of transmission is very low? And which activities, like mass gatherings, may be – in a certain sense – more optional? And so until you’re widely vaccinated, those may not come back at all.”

The Microsoft founder floated 18 months as a possible timeline for a reversion to normalcy.

Gates is a well-known proponent of abortion and population control. He has talked about using vaccines in the past as a means of controlling world’s population.

“Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that [the population] by perhaps 10 or 15 percent,” he said at a 2010 TED  conference.

Some parents are obviously concerned about the implications for parental rights, health, or religious freedoms if a vaccine is introduced.

During the CBS interview, Gates claimed that there are currently “seven or more” potential vaccines that could fight the Wuhan Virus pandemic. In order to guarantee that there are billions of doses of the vaccine available right out of the gate, Gates put forward the idea of building factories that would mass produce each of these vaccines as testing is being conducted concurrently.

Gates admitted that “only probably two of the vaccines will be the ones we go ahead with,” conceding that there exist major risks involved in seeing this plan through.

Gates also commented that a national strategy to the Wuhan Virus pandemic is needed, alluding to what he wrote about in a Washington Post op-ed on April 1.

“Because people can travel freely across state lines, so can the virus. The country’s leaders need to be clear: Shutdown anywhere means shutdown everywhere. Until the case numbers start to go down across America – which could take 10 weeks or more – no one can continue business as usual or relax the shutdown,” Gates commented.

In the CBS This Morning interview, Gates stressed the importance of acting quickly after the Wuhan Virus outbreak.

“We understand what needs to be done here. It’s going to be very painful. But taking the pain early means there’s a lot less pain both medically and economically than if we dilly-dally and wait until every town has big numbers before we react.”

Gates said that the Wuhan Virus pandemic will cost trillions of dollars, on top of hundreds of thousands of lives globally when it’s all said and done. “For the next one, we will be far more ready than we were for this one,” he predicted.

As many Americans seek to protect their liberties in a time of uncertainty — as evidenced by the number of people rushing to buy firearms and ammo — globalist oligarchs like Gates are concocting plots to advance crony capitalist projects that will infringe on the rights of millions of Americans.

Gates may have been a great entrepreneur, his politics, on the other hand, are straight out of the globalist playbook.
