Texas ‘Liberty’ Rep. Jonathan Stickland Betrays Texas Gun Rights Activists By Video Scolding

Stickland has claimed to be a pro-liberty lawmaker since winning office in 2013, but has shown his true colors under the pressure.

Texas State Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R-Bedford) shocked his pro-Constitution constituents by siding with anti-gun Republican House leadership to throw grassroots gun rights activists under the bus.

“Recently, I have seen and been made aware of some of the most concerning behavior I have witnessed in my time as a legislator. I am saddened by the acts of a few individuals who have stolen the conversation about legislation that I deeply care about,” Stickland said in a Facebook video chastizing gun rights advocates of Texas.

Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen (R-Angleton) killed Stickman’s ‘Constitutional Carry’ bill after protesters fliered the door of his home. Apparently considering himself to be royalty, Bonnen saw this civic activism to be an egregious, intolerable act akin to an ISIS attack.

“I could no longer watch as legislators and their families are incessantly harassed by fanatical gun-rights activists who think laws preventing criminals from carrying a gun should be repealed,” said the sanctimonious Bonnen in a written comment, according to The Statesman.

“Their goal is to eradicate sensible gun policies by allowing anyone to carry a gun without a license and proper training — making it impossible for law enforcement to distinguish between law-abiding gun owners and criminals,” Bonnen said, making it clear he is an enemy of the 2nd Amendment. “The fear and terror used to push this agenda has made it clear this is bad public policy.”

Additionally, Bonnen was caught lying about the story he told the press to paint his conservative constituents as threats to public safety. He initially claimed his wife was in the house at the time Texas Gun Rights’ Executive Director, Chris McNutt showed up with fliers.

“With that said, do I think this bad policy? Yes. So I’m not running from that,” Bonnen told the Houston Chronicle. “The bigger point is they can attack me all they want, but don’t go to my residence when you know there’s zero opportunity of my being there … don’t go where my two sons and my wife are and I am not.”

But it was later revealed in a Fort-Worth Star Telegram report that Bonnen’s wife, Kim, was not in the premises when McNutt showed up. Only a teenage son was inside Bonnen’s home at the time of the supposed incident.

Mrs. Bonnen even had the audacity to claim to be traumatized by McNutt’s choice of clothes claiming that “showing up with a T-shirt with a machine gun on it” was “freaking me out. … This cannot become how we advocate.”

McNutt believes that Bonnen is just making up a lame excuse for refusing to live up to his oath to the Constitution.

“If politicians like Speaker Dennis Bonnen think they can show up at the doorsteps of Second Amendment supporters and make promises to earn votes in the election season, they shouldn’t be surprised when we show up in their neighborhoods to insist they simply keep their promises in the legislative session,” McNutt said to the Dallas News.

“He is trying to paint the simple act of leaving a flyer on the doors of hundreds of his constituents and donors – asking them to contact their legislators to support a bill – is somehow an act of intimidation,” McNutt said in a video message posted on the Texas Gun Rights’ Facebook page.

Unfortunately, Stickland lacked the courage to stand for his supporters who pushed for his ‘Constitutional Carry’ legislation. Stickland followed the lead of the House Speaker in conjunction with the National Rifle Association and the Texas State Rifle Association to violate his oath to the Constitution and denigrate patriotic individuals for grassroots activism with misrepresentations.

“There is a right way and a wrong way to influence the legislative process… There is never a time or place to physically threaten an elected official with violence. It is never okay or helpful to your cause to curse out their staff. It’s never okay to target their homes or personal businesses when you know they are not in town,” Stickland said, giving orders to the peasants on how they may use their rights.

Stickland’s patriotic Facebook following smelled a rat and immediately took this slovenly legislator to task for his colossal betrayal.

“If this lawmaker had a shred of integrity, he would not allow the actions of a few affect his responsibility to do the right thing for the masses of gun owners in the state who did not show up at his home and did not send threatening messages,” FOX Business political analyst Jan Morgan wrote.

“He is coward lacking in integrity and looking for any excuse to shirk his responsibility to the people,” Morgan added. “He needs a good opponent in the next primary.”

“You used to be the best legislator in the country and now you are backtracking,” former Tennessee Campaign for Liberty activist Matt Collins wrote. “NEVER throw your allies under the bus and NEVER give the enemy cover. You should delete this video immediately and apologize.”

“While I have also been an avid supporter of you and your efforts to promote constitutional carry in Texas for years I can no longer support you or your efforts at this time,” constituent Jerry McWhorter wrote. “By making this video you have essentially shown an example of how red flag laws work by condemning an individual without proof of a crime. You just lost my vote in the next election.”

It doesn’t seem likely that an oathbreaker like Stickland, with his lack of a backbone and fealty to GOP establishment leadership, will ever achieve any results for Texas gun owners. Texas Republicans might be wise to consider a primary challenge against him in 2020.

Note: Stickland was contacted for a statement, but had not replied by the time of publication.

EMAIL LEAK: Nashville Dem Mayor’s Office Colludes to Hide Data Indicating Restaurants and Bars Were Not COVID-19 Hotspots

Leaked emails have shown the Dems are deceiving on COVID-19.

Published

Democrat leaders of Nashville, Tenn. have been exposed for colluding to hide data showing that bars and restaurants were not major transmission points of COVID-19 despite the fake news hype.

Some of the top advisors of Nashville Mayor John Cooper have been indicated in a plot to hide information that might alleviate some of the mass hysteria related to COVID-19, which has crippled small businesses including bars and restaurants.

While Democrats have looked the other way with regards to mass protests featuring violent communists and anti-white thugs, they have incessantly demonized restaurant owners and bar owners throughout the pandemic. The contents of this email leak suggest that Democrats are targeting restaurants and bars to punish the American people and hurt the economy to hurt President Trump’s re-election chances.

The controversy stems from findings by the state’s contact tracing team. They determined on June 30 that nursing homes and construction were major hot spots for the spread of COVID-19, with each category logging over a thousand cases of the virus. However, bars and restaurants accounted for only 22 cases. The Mayor’s officials schemed to keep this information away from the public.

“This isn’t going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayor’s Office?” asked Leslie Waller of the health department.

“Correct, not for public consumption,” senior advisor Benjamin Eagles added.

This created the de facto policy of keeping the information under wraps by the Mayor’s office. The health department refused to confirm the numbers when they were asked about them during the summer by the press.

Tennessee Lookout reporter Nate Rau asked: “The figure you gave of ‘more than 80’ does lead to a natural question: If there have been over 20,000 positive cases of COVID-19 in Davidson and only 80 or so are traced to restaurants and bars, doesn’t that mean restaurants and bars aren’t a very big problem?”

Health department official Brian Todd said to five health department officials: “Please advise how you recommend I respond.”

The whistleblower, whose name was redacted from emails, reportedly responded at the time: “My two cents. We have certainly refused to give counts per bar because those numbers are low per site. We could still release the total though, and then a response to the over 80 could be because that number is increasing all the time and we don’t want to say a specific number.”

Nashville Councilman Steve Glover is up in arms about the Democrat officials plotting to keep the people scared and in the dark regarding COVID-19 numbers.

“We raised taxes 34 percent and put hundreds literally thousands of people out of work that are now worried about losing their homes, their apartments…and we did it on bogus data. That should be illegal,” Glover said to FOX 17 News about the Democrats omitting this crucial information from the public.

This is not the only instance of the COVID-19 numbers being fudged to keep the panic alive with the beleaguered public. There has been constant subterfuge from globalists to convince the public that the lockdown is necessary.

Big League Politics has reported on the staggering overstatement of COVID-19 case numbers by reporting facilities in Florida:

The Florida Department of Health is scrambling after fraud was discovered in how COVID-19 testing rates were being reported across the state.

After the health department released a report showing a stunning statewide positivity rate of 11 percent, analysis of the numbers revealed severe irregularities. Many labs reported 100 percent positivity, meaning that every test came back positive.

In addition to the labs reporting 100 percent positivity, there were other testing facilities that reported abnormal levels of positive tests. FOX 35 found that Centra Care reported that 83 people who submitted tests were all counted as positive. The Orlando Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center reported a 76 percent positivity rate, NCF Diagnostics reported tests at a 88 percent positivity rate, and Orlando Health reported a 98 percent positivity rate.

Orlando Health has admitted that the results from the health department’s report are dubious. They said that their positivity rate was only 9.4 percent, not 98 percent as it was shown in the report. This casts major doubt regarding the accuracy of the total cases that have been reported in Florida.

The fake news has used Florida as an example to bolster their COVID-19 mass hysteria due to all of the supposed cases that were popping up throughout the state.

There have been reports of COVID-19 case numbers being faked in Texas as well:

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced last week that the number of new COVID-19 cases was erroneous, with an artificially high number of cases, due to system upgrades and coding errors with their reporting system.

Abbott explained that the Texas Department of State Health Services brought in a data team to review the suspect numbers. The positivity rates reached a stunning 24.5 percent last Wednesday, which caused the media alarmists to create more hysteria among the beleaguered masses.

DSHS press officer Lara Anton said that this happened because of a computer update that occurred on Aug. 1, resulting in positives being uploaded into the system multiple times. Coding errors were also discovered in one hospital lab and another commercial lab that resulted in additional positives being counted to the total.

Dallas County Director of Health and Human Services Dr. Phillip Huang made excuses for the glaring errors which are being used to shutter certain businesses throughout Texas.

“We are still dealing with paper faxes of lab data and lab reports – hundreds of those a day that we’re having to deal with,” Huang said.

“The systems have not really been designed to handle this many numbers,” he added. “It’s an unprecedented situation we’re dealing with.”

While the so-called experts would like to make it appear as if this some kind of honest mistake, irregularities in the reporting have steadily occurred throughout the country.

Democrats have engineered this scamdemic and cannot give up on the lie because they would be held accountable for the needless damage they have caused to the American people for political purposes.
