Texan Conservative Activist Defends Pro-Gun Organization From Fake News

Published

on

Fake News drama in Texas continues.

The Texas Tribune embarked on a vicious hit campaign against Texas Gun Rights activist Chris McNutt.

The Texan newspaper has bought into House Speaker Dennis Bonnen’s claim that McNutt “visited his house.”

Republican activist and major donor Darlene Pendery told BLP that this claim is “deliberately misleading.”

Pendery explained that McNutt block walked in Bonnen’s neighborhood handing out fliers pointing out the House Speaker’s flip-flop on Constitutional Carry.

In fact, McNutt made no attempt to contact Bonnen’s wife or children. Pendery also added that McNutt did not ring the doorbell or knock on Bonnen’s door.

McNutt did not harass, loiter or litter, or shout obscenities at Bonnen’s house. Pendery re-iterated that McNutt handed out flyers, door to door, to let Bonnen’s constituents and donors know about his flip-flop on Constitutional Carry. McNutt distributed the same materials in a similar fashion in Four Price and Dustin Burrows’ neighborhoods.

These facts, however, did not keep Bonnen from throwing a temper tantrum.
At the April 9th Biennial Republican Party of Texas Spring Dinner, Bonnen nearly came to blows with McNutt.
Both Bonnen and McNutt were invited to sit at one of Pendery’s tables well before McNutt’s block walking campaign and the subsequent confrontation took place.
Pendery assured that this was no “set up” as Bonnen and the media would like people to believe.
McNutt was dining at Pendery’s table when Bonnen showed up to blindside him “with very loud shouting directly into his ear.”
Republican activist David Wylie offered Bonnen to have a seat at another table and have a calm dinner with Pendery and her group. However, Bonnen refused to do so, and even said that Wylie was “aggressively hostile and tried to provoke physical violence.”  Bonnen claimed to be “afraid for his safety and thought he better leave.”
This was account was refuted by other people sitting at a table which included long-time conservative activist Mike Openshaw and former Texas State Representative Matt Rinaldi.
BLP reported that Constitutional Carry is officially dead in the 2019 state legislature.
Gun rights activists at Lone Star Gun Rights expressed their concerns about the Texas political establishment’s inaction on the issue and the potential for gun controllers to continue to gain momentum.
Complacency is dangerous in this case. All it took was a mass shooting in Parkland, to put Florida, one of the most pro-gun states in the country, on the road to being an increasingly anti-gun state.
Texas Gun rights, however, has vowed to double down on the Texas political class.
The 2020 Texas primaries will very likely have Constitutional Carry as the number #1 issue throughout the elections.

Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel

Post-pandemic America will not look the same.

Published

on

Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.

In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates. 

Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.” 

Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.

According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”

Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:

If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.  

Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain. 

If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
