Texas State Representative Briscoe Cain’s Law Firm Will Not Fire Him Despite Outrage Mob Pressure

Published

on

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.

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.

Thanks to Spineless, Establishment Republicans, Senate Panel Delays Vote to Subpoena Big Tech CEOs

Republicans Continue to Show Pathetic They are on the Issues that Matter Most

America First nationalist’s hopes of having Big Tech CEOs testify before Congress about allegations of censorship directed towards the Right were temporarily dashed on October 19, 2020.

Politico reported that the Senate Judiciary Committee delayed plans to vote on subpoenas to force the CEOs of Twitter and Facebook to go before the Senate and be questioned about their anti-Right wing censorship policies.

Some Republicans ended up having cold feet and decided to postpone the vote much to the disappointment of right wing activists who have complained about Big Tech’s anti-free speech policies.

President Donald Trump and a number of nationalist Republicans have sharply criticized Facebook and Twitter over their censorship of a controversial New York Post report that exposed Hunter Biden, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, and his corrupt behavior.

Originally, GOP officials in the Judiciary Committee announced plans to hold a markup on October 20 to determine if they would subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to get his perspective on allegations concerning his company’s policies that muzzle conservative viewpoints. Twitter denies claims regarding Twitter’s censorship policies.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who is the Chair of the Judiciary Committee, revealed that the planned vote would also call on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify.

The panel stated on October 19 that it would determine whether they would issue subpoenas during a executive session on October 22 where it will also allegedly approve Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. The committee declared in a statement that it will maintain negotiations with the companies “to allow for voluntary testimony” by the CEO. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, the panel will proceed to take a vote on the subpoenas “at a date to be determined.”

The subpoenas would compel the tech big wigs to testify on the reports of “suppression and/or censorship” of New York Post stories and on “any other content moderation policies, practices, or actions that may interfere with or influence elections for federal office,” according to a committee document released on October 19.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who is the chair of the Judiciary’s Subcommittee on the Constitution said to reporters that he’s expecting the committee to preside over testimonies from the Twitter and Facebook chiefs “shortly” regardless of whether they come to the decision on their own volition.

“One way or another, either voluntarily or pursuant to subpoena, they will testify and they will testify before the election,” Cruz stated.

In a separate hearing for the Senate Commerce Committee, Zuckerberg and Dorsey will join Google CEO Sundar Pichai on October 28 for a hearing on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which generally shields Big Tech companies from a liability.

Cruz, who is a member of both Judiciary and Commerce committees, wants each panel to carry out their own hearings with the tech chiefs before election day. “I believe we need a separate hearing in Judiciary because the issues being discussed in the two committees are different,” Cruz remarked.

Big Tech has become too powerful, especially during a time when social media has become the de facto public square. Republicans will need to get serious about making online speech receive the same treatment as general political speech.
