Jeb Bush Continues to Push Weak-Kneed Conservatism by Condemning Some of Trump’s Supporters

Published

on

On August 19, 2020, former Florida Governor and failed presidential candidate criticized President Donald Trump for his casual response to questions about some of his supporters’ sympathies towards the QAnon conspiracy.

Bush was outraged at how the President did not criticize supporters of QAnon conspiracy theory.

“Why in the world would the President not kick Q’anon supporters’ butts? Nut jobs, [racists], haters have no place in either Party,” Bush said on Twitter.

Bush’s comments came in response to Trump’s statements earlier in August 19 giving reluctant praise to the supporters of the QAnon conspiracy theory. Trump overlooked the conspiracy’s core message and focused more on how these conspiracy theorists are big fans of his administration.

While in front of reporters, Trump said that he doesn’t “know much about the movement other than I understand they like me very much, which I appreciate.”

“These are people that don’t like seeing what’s going on in places like Portland and places like Chicago and other cities and states,” Trump added. “I’ve heard these are people that love our country and they just don’t like seeing it. I don’t know really anything about it other than they do supposedly like me. And they also would like to see problems in these areas … go away.”

According to this conspiracy theory, Trump and his allies are working jointly to uncover and arrest an underground network of global elites who control the government and operate child sex trafficking rings. Following a reporter’s attempt to explain the conspiracy theory to Trump, the president responded by saying he hadn’t “heard that.”

“But is that supposed to be a bad thing or a good thing?” Trump responded. “If I can help save the world from problems, I’m willing to do it. I’m willing to put myself out there.”

Trump is in the right by not focusing too much on QAnon and shifting the discussion on the broadness of his support.

This latest media QAnon obsession is merely a form of gotcha journalism that distracts from the real issues.

Issues that actually matter such as putting an end to never-ending conflicts and border security merit more of Trump’s time than some overhyped media drama.

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.
