Empower Texans CEO Michael Quinn Sullivan took establishment conservatives to task on Twitter on September 17, 2019.
He started a thread praising the American Constitution while also highlighting how numerous rights are under threat like never before.
Quinn Sullivan declared, “Like never before those inalienable rights and liberties—and the constitutional system of government created to protect them—are under sustained assault.”
The conservative leader continued:
From the freedom of speech to due process, from attacks on federalism to the rise of the unelected regulatory state, no aspect of the framers’ vision for our system of government is safe.
The Empower Texans CEO then stared singling out elected officials and candidates like Republican Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick and former Congressman Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke.
Whether it is @BetoORourke wanting to outright seize your firearms, or @DanPatrick trying to manage what you do with them, it is sadly evident too many politicians are all too willing to betray our Constitution in the name of their own political power.
Patrick, who has been pushing gun control lately, quickly responded to Quinn Sullivan’s call out.
You know my plan exempts family and friends, so apparently you are fine with selling your guns to total strangers who can’t pass a background check because they could be a violent felon or someone bent on mass violence. BTW, release the tape. You are destroying our party.
The tape Patrick was referring to was a tape that Quinn Sullivan recorded a few months prior which implicated House Republican leaders Dustin Burrows and Dennis Bonnen in a potential bribery scandal.
The Empower Texans CEO was having none of Patrick’s political cowardice and he replied, “Your “plan” is rightly derided by the @NRA, @GOA, and every other Second Amendment group. Your willingness to defend the rights of law abiding citizens to appease Democrats is what’s destroying the GOP.”
Right now, Texas is going through a tumultuous political climate.
A mediocre legislative session, which saw Constitutional Carry legislation killed in controversial fashion, and recent mass shootings have put the GOP on the defensive.
Although Texas still has relatively solid gun laws, Texas Republicans should not become complacent.
Democrats are gaining momentum in the Lone Star State and smell blood in the water. Republicans will need every vote possible to stave off the Democrat’s growing influence. Alienating conservative voters by appeasing anti-gun Democrats could prove fatal in future elections for the Texas GOP.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
