The Republican National Convention kicked off on Monday with speeches from several major GOP elected officials and the President’s son, with figures such as Donald Trump Jr., Tim Scott, and Matt Gaetz being among the most prominent figures to speak an the first night of the event.

Trump Jr. directed the ire of his speech towards Joe Biden, likening the longtime establishment figure and Democratic nominee to the “Loch Ness monster of the swamp.”

Matt Gaetz made a robust defense of an America First vision and nationalist principles, calling upon Republican to reject the liberal universalist idea that America is little more than an “idea” or an “experiment.”

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott spoke on many of the Republican policy accomplishments on the economy, and a plan to rebuild the nation following the ravages of the coronavirus disease.

The McCloskeys, the Saint Louis couple facing political prosecution for defending their home from a mob of Black Lives Matter rioters at the whim of a Soros-funded rogue prosecutor, broke down the need for American patriots to forcefully reject anarcho-tyranny and to stand for the rule of law.

All and all, a strong first night of the convention. All of these large-scale political events tend to have a small piece of cringe here and there, but that comes with the territory of a major political party that represents tens of millions of people in the American political system. The convention, which was broadcast from various locations pursuant to coronavirus restrictions, was mostly decorated with “Make America Great Again” imagery, in contrast to “Keep America Great.”

Melania Trump, Mike Pompeo, Eric Trump and Rand Paul are among the Republican Party figures who will speak on Tuesday night. President Trump will deliver his speech accepting the GOP nomination for President on Thursday.

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.
