Published

on

In an email directed to Texas GOP House Members, Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey, and Republican Party of Texas Leadership, JoAnn Fleming called on them to speak out against current House Speaker Dennis and State Representative Dustin Burrow’s schemes to undermine GOP incumbents.

Fleming is the Executive Director Grassroots America – We the People PAC.

Fleming described the silence of Texas GOP leadership as “deafening”. The email that Fleming sent out serves as a “strong public nudge” in her view.

The Executive Director of Grassroots America commended Michael Quinn Sullivan, Tim Dunn and Empower Texans for bringing to light the audio recording of Bonnen and Burrows’ plot to attack GOP incumbents.

This same recording possibly incriminates Burrows and Bonnen for engaging in bribery, which BLP detailed earlier.  Quinn Sullivan, the CEO of Empower Texans, expressed why he recorded his conversation with Bonnen and Burrows:

This was a private recording for my own protection. I never intended to release the recording to the public because I believe it may damage innocent bystanders—most notably the Republican Party of Texas and Republican politicians (including those with whom I disagree on matters of policy or philosophy). Many do not deserve to be associated with Dennis Bonnen’s approach to politics. Bonnen said things in the meeting I expect the Democrats will use against Republicans generally. And if the Democrats use the recording effectively, that could ultimately be harmful to Texas taxpayers.

Quinn Sullivan has threatened to release the recording if Bonnen and Burrows continue to spread misinformation about their encounter with Quinn Sullivan.

Fleming declared that the ball is in the GOP leaders’ court.

She expanded:

Whether or not you like MQS or agree with him, Mr. Dunn or Empower Texans is immaterial — so stop acting like you are running in a popularity contest for 5th grade class president. Lead on what is substantive — on what is true and right and good and decent.

She also made it clear that there is no middle road on this issue.

You owe it to the people you represent to hear the evidence and then land on one side or the other of this mess. There is no middle ground.  You either agree with the actions of Bonnen and Burrows or you don’t.

Things do not look well for the Texas GOP at the moment.

Since Constitutional Carry was killed and other key conservative issues were not addressed during the 2019 session of the Texas state legislature, grassroots conservatives have begun to lose faith in their political leadership.

Now, many of their fears are being confirmed with the latest case of GOP corruption.

Indeed, the Texas GOP is resting on its laurels.  From guns rights to business freedom, Texas does remain quite conservative.

However, the recent performance of Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke and the changing demographics of the state show that Texas is transforming politically.

If the Texas GOP doesn’t wake up to this, Texas could become the next California.

For once, GOP leadership will have to actually deliver on their electoral promises, lest they want to become politically irrelevant.

Midterms 2022

Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election

America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.

On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.

According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate. 

“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.

The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”

In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that  “This is a tough time to be in public service.”

Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back. 

2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state. 

America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
