The backlash from State Representative Briscoe Cain and former Congressman Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke Twitter squabble has not died down.
Last weekend, Cain’s law firm said that they are standing with their lawyer, no matter how badly the outrage mob wants them to fire Cain.
“Perhaps he should be fired. Perhaps you all should just go out of business,” a woman said in a voicemail message she left for Cain’s law firm.
Non-stop emails, phone calls, and voicemails have flooded Kevin Fulton’s law firm, Fulton Strahan Law Group, since last Friday
Fulton claims that 804 voicemails were left in a span of less than two days.
“We had to shut the phones off. They took my email address and signed us up for a bunch of different newsletters and spam and porn sites, everything they could find, trying to shut down the email system,” Fulton claimed.
Fulton said this commotion started hours after one of his colleagues, State Representative Briscoe Cain, went on Twitter, and responded to Democratic Presidential Candidate Beto O’Rourke’s statement about confiscating AR-15s.
Many on the Left, including O’Rourke, viewed Cain’s tweet, “My AR is ready for you Robert Francis” as a direct threat.
Last Saturday, O’Rourke still maintained that Cain’s comments were threatening.
“Threatening to introduce violence into our democracy and political process, he makes the case that no one should own a weapon that can kill people effectively, efficiently, at devastating numbers because it terrorizes and terrifies people. That’s what he sought to do over Twitter. No one should be able to do that,” O’Rourke said of Cain’s comments.
For Fulton, however, agreeing with either politician is not what he cares about. He believes this is about rights, and that’s why he’s not caving to the outrage mob.
“I went and I fought for this country for a reason, and it wasn’t for people to bully me into having someone give up their first or second amendment rights,” Fulton said.
Fulton is fully supporting Cain, stating that he will not fold under pressure to fire Cain, and will not let an outrage mob influence his decision-making.
“We fight for our clients. I would be remiss if I didn’t fight for my staff. That’s my family,” Fulton said.
The gun control debate is only getting more intense in Texas.
A state that has traditionally had some of the best gun laws in the nation, Texas is now facing unprecedented threats from Democratic politicians.
As the state becomes more competitive these threats will no longer be speculation.
It doesn’t help that Republicans like Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick are starting to give in to anti-gun pressure as well.
The next few years will be pivotal in deciding what the future of gun rights looks like in the Lone Star State.
Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel
Post-pandemic America will not look the same.
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.
