Drudge Report Recognizes Republican Betrayal on the Second Amendment

Published

on

Famed Conservative news aggregator Drudge Report recognizes the anti-gun shenanigans that D.C. Republicans are trying to pull off.

Yesterday, in its front page, its headline story was titled “REPUBLICANS COALESCE AROUND GUN CONTROL.”

It linked to an MSN News story detailing Republicans’ latest rally around red flag gun confiscation orders.

Under “red flag” laws, law enforcement would be allowed to confiscate firearms from individuals who allegedly pose a “threat” to themselves or others. These laws are already present in multiple states, and now appear to have strong bipartisan support in Washington D.C.

Right off the bat, Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw and Senator Lindsey Graham endorsed “red flag” legislation. President Donald Trump seconded their motion and said that he would sign such a law if it came to his desk.

Senate Majority Whip John Thune of South Dakota has joined them as well. He told his his hometown newspaper, The Argus Leader, that he was “confident Congress will be able to find common ground on the so-called red flag issue.”

Additionally, Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey wants to revive his failed universal background check bill that he co-sponsored alongside Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin in 2013. Toomey tweeted, “I also agree with Senator Lindsey Graham that we should pass a bipartisan ‘red flag’ measure that enables families and law enforcement to obtain a court order to keep guns away from dangerous individuals.”

Political commentators, who are in touch with Middle America, strongly disagree with Republican leadership on this move.

Like Drudge, Rush Limbaugh understands that red flag bills are gun control. But this time with a fancy title.

During his show on August 6, 2019, Rush Limbaugh described red flag bills as a “pipeline to gun control.”

Tensions are running high in America.

Nevertheless, Republican leadership must maintain its calm and respect the will of its voters and not the hand-wringing from the anti-gun media.

One false move, and the floodgates to massive civilian disbarment will burst wide open.

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.
