On May 3, 2019, Texas Gun Rights posted an announcement on Facebook demanding an apology from House Speaker Dennis Bonnen.
Texas Gun Rights and the National Association for Gun Rights legal counsel David Warrington issued a letter demanding that Bonnen apologize for his defamatory remarks against Chris McNutt.
In the statement, Warrington said “On behalf of our client, Mr. Chris McNutt, I write to demand that you retract the false and defamatory statements you made about Mr. McNutt during your April 9, 2019 appearance on The Chad Hasty Show.”
Warrington went into further details:
On the show you stated that Mr. McNutt visited Lubbock Representative Dustin Burrows’ district office and “flashed his gun in his district office to the staff.” You further stated that Mr. McNutt’s actions were done to “intimidate and threaten.”
As reported by BLP, Bonnen claimed that Chris McNutt went to his district to intimidate him. Bonnen even claimed that McNutt flashed a firearm when peacefully block-walking in Burrows and Bonnen’s district.
Warrington countered these claims however:
To be clear, at no time during his visit to Representative Burrow’s district office did Mr. McNutt flash a gun. In fact, Mr. McNutt was unarmed when he visited Representative Burrow’s office.
The legal counsel also declared that these false statements were damaging:
Your false accusation that Mr. McNutt flashed a gun is false and injurious to Mr. McNutt’s personal and professional reputation and caused him great mental anguish. That this false allegation was made by the Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives is particularly injurious.
Warrington maintained a firm position on what Bonnen must do to rectify the situation:
On Mr. McNutt’s behalf, we demand that you issue a public apology to him and publicly retract your accusation that Mr. McNutt “flashed a gun” to “intimidate and threaten” the staff at Representative Burrow’s district office.
In the case that Bonnen does not apologize, Warrington threatened legal action:
If you take this action by 5 p.m. this Monday, May 6, 2019, Mr. McNutt will accept your apology and correction of the public record and this matter will be at an end. If you do not, Mr. McNutt may take all appropriate legal action to restore Mr. McNutt’s reputation and hold you accountable for these defamatory statements.
For that past month, Texas Gun Rights has been embroiled in a vicious feud with House Speaker Bonnen over his inaction on Constitutional Carry.
Bonnen ended up killing Constitutional Carry, but he has doubled down in his barrage against gun rights activists.
He even claims that the Constitutional Carry legislation that Texas Gun Rights is pushing for will allow felons to carry, despite the fact that the current Constitutional Carry bill comports with Texas law by maintaining its prohibition against felons from carrying.
It looks like this saga won’t be coming to an end soon.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
