Texas Conservatives Revolt Against Republican Incumbents in 2020

Published

on

Grassroots conservative leaders in Texas are angry.

According to a report from Texas Scorecard, Northeast Tarrant Tea Party leader Julie White McCarty said she nor NETTP will help with any incumbent elected official’s re-election campaigns.

In a Facebook post she cited their poor performance during the 2019 legislative session as the reason behind this move.

She wrote in the post, that “There will be no Shark Tank. I will not personally campaign nor lead NETTP to campaign for any re-election. Not worth my time when the returns yield nothing. Open to new candidates but I’ll be pretty picky”

According to McCarty, Shark Tank is a one-day event that she and other grassroots activists have been organizing during the past two election cycles. This event aims to find new candidates for the Texas House who meet grassroots conservatives’ criteria. McCarty claims that Shark Tank raised $200,000 in the first year the event was held and then it was able to raise over $500,000 in its second year in action. However, no money will be raised in this upcoming election cycle.

McCarty expanded on why she does not want to be involved with Shark Tank:

I don’t want to put my name, or the tea party’s name, behind a bunch of candidates … and then when they get to Austin, they’re like, ‘Okay, sit down and shut up, because we know better than you.

When asked to give her assessment of the 2019 legislative session, McCarty bluntly responded: “We got nothing.”

She listed election reform and property taxes as the two issues she was most disappointed about.

McCarty argues that Republican control of both chambers of the State Legislature is dwindling.

This was probably our last chance to have a strong Republican head count, and we blew it. We twiddled it away, and next session will be even harder because our numbers will be even lower.

She ominously added:

“The writing’s on the wall. We’re going to lose Texas.”

BLP reached out to Texas Gun Rights Executive Director Chris McNutt, who was victim of a vicious Fake News campaign during the last stretch of the legislation.

After Constitutional Carry was killed due to House Speaker Bonnen’s gatekeeping antics, grassroots activists were left with a bitter taste in their mouths. McNutt included.

McNutt told BLP that “Speaker Bonnen is drunk on power”

GOP politicians can’t afford to rest on their laurels.

With Democrats more emboldened than ever after Beto’s surprising 2018 performance and Texas’s changing demographics, Texas politics could potentially witness a shift in the next decade or so.

However, Young Americans for Liberty’s decision to move down to Texas could give the grassroots conservative movement a second wind during the 2020 election season.

U.S. Intelligence Reports that China Hid the Extent of the Wuhan Virus Outbreak

Published

on

According to a Bloomberg report, China has not been forthcoming about the extent of the Wuhan Virus in its country.

It has apparently, under-reported “both total cases and deaths it’s suffered from the disease, the U.S. intelligence community concluded in a classified report to the White House, according to three U.S. officials.”

The officials requested to stay anonymous because the report is confidential and declined to give further details about its contents. The main takeaway though is “that China’s public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete. Two of the officials said the report concludes that China’s numbers are fake.”

The White House received this report last week, according to one of the aforementioned officials.

The pandemic originated in China’s Hubei province in late 2019, but the country has officially reported only about 82,000 cases and 3,300 deaths, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University. America, on the other hand, has 189,000 cases and more than 4,000 deaths which is allegedly the largest publicly and reported outbreak in the world.

“The reality is that we could have been better off if China had been more forthcoming,” Vice President Mike Pence said on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 on CNN. “What appears evident now is that long before the world learned in December that China was dealing with this, and maybe as much as a month earlier than that, that the outbreak was real in China.”

China imposed one of the strictest lockdowns of all nations afflicted by this pandemic. However, the Chinese government has not been transparent about its recording strategies and is constantly changing its methods for recording cases.

Republicans have been skeptical of the numbers coming out of Beijing.

“The claim that the United States has more coronavirus deaths than China is false,” declared Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse. “Without commenting on any classified information, this much is painfully obvious: The Chinese Communist Party has lied, is lying, and will continue to lie about coronavirus to protect the regime.”

U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has called on China to be transparent about their outbreaks.

“This data set matters,” he said during a news conference in Washington on March 31, 2020. The development of medical treatments and public-health measures to combat the virus “so that we can save lives depends on the ability to have confidence and information about what has actually transpired,” he asserted.

The Wuhan Virus pandemic illustrates the pitfalls of globalism and global integration at all costs.

When authoritarian regimes like China are treated like equals on the international stage in terms of trade and migration, Western countries could be susceptible to demographic displacement, national security breaches, viral outbreaks, and corporate espionage.

This sage may be the wake-up call the West needs in trying to socially distance itself from China.
