Democratic congressman Matt Cartwright’s seat in the U.S. House will be a race to watch in the 2020 elections.
Cartwright currently represents Pennsylvania’s 8th district, which has historically been a swing district.
Earl Granville is one of the candidates in the running for the Republican nomination in Pennsylvania’s 8th district.
Granville is an Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran who lost his left leg while serving in Afghanistan.
According to Media Right News, the Republican candidate has ties to Meghan McCain and has a very positive view of the late establishment Senator John McCain.
One interesting point raised by Kay Williamson of Media Right News is that someone asked Granville about his party affiliation. “Team Granville” responded to the user inquiry “Mitch–as is the case with many combat veterans who serve various Commanders In Chief, and do not ask the party affiliations of the soldiers they fight alongside of in war on the right and the left, Earl has been quite forthcoming in saying he once was a registered Independent. But make no mistake, his conservative values are that of the R Party, he is a Republican, and is a strong supporter of the President’s America First Agenda.–Team Granville.”
Williamson then posted about the follow up that Media Right News made with his Facebook page:
Media Right News reached out to the Earl for Congress Facebook page and asked when Earl switched from Independent to Republican. The response to the question didn’t answer the question. The “Earl for Congress” Facebook page response (likely by a staff member) stated ‘Earl Granville is a Republican and is supporting Donald J Trump for President in 2020. We are focused on defeating Cartwright and the liberal left in Nov and are pleased to have the endorsement of Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy. –Team Granville’
And the story gets juicier when Granville’s page was asked about an Instagram post from election night in 2016.
Media Right News also asked about an Instagram post from election night 2016, that has since been deleted, showing a Facebook post and reads ‘Me: I don’t like Trump. Everyone: ‘So you support a liar like Hillary? She should be in Jail! Me: I don’t like Hillary. Everyone: ‘So you support a racist like Trump!? He doesn’t stand for American values!’ Me: I don’t like either. Everyone: ‘So you’re going to waste your vote on third party!? They’re never going to win!! Me: So…there’s no point in voting. Everyone: ‘IT’S YOUR DUTY TO VOTE AS AN AMERICAN! YOU CAN’T JUST NOT VOTE’ Literally our voting system in America.’
A source was able to send Media Right News a screenshot of an Instagram post from November 8th, 2016 which exposed Granville.
Granville appeared to agree with some comments which were made on his Instagram post from a Facebook post, where someone declared that they didn’t like Hillary Clinton or now President Donald Trump. Although the screenshot has been deleted since then, Granville staff did not deny the screenshot’s authenticity when Media Right News reached out to them.
The ambiguous response from Granville’s team leaves many questions unanswered and raises concerns about his sincerity behind supporting Trump.
Another candidate is running for the Republican nomination in the 8th district. Teddy Daniels, a former police officer, served in Afghanistan where he received a Purple Heart as well as a Combat Infantry Badge. Daniels sustained injuries during a firefight with the Taliban in 2012.
Daniels has expressed his pro-Trump beliefs without qualms. During an interview with Fox 56, Daniels said, “I will always stand behind President Trump. I’m a Trump guy… I’m not a political insider, Nobody has puppet string on me. I’m the man that’s going to stand by my values and fight for Northeast Pennsylvania.”
Groups such as Vets for Trump, NEPA Women for Trump Tea Party Nation, and Freedomworks have endorsed Daniels. Freedomworks generally endorses candidates who are most likely to join the freedom caucus if elected.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
