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.

Dallas County Safer-at-Home Order in Effect Until April 30, Could be Extended
On Friday, April 3, 2020 Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins clarified that his Safer-at-Home order is in effect until April 30. This came after the commissioner’s court signed off an extension of the county’s disaster declaration until May 20 earlier in the day. This led to confusion about how long the stay at home order would remain in place.
According to members of the commissioner’s court, the extension of both the disaster declaration and Safer-at-Home order were greenlit until May 20. The vote to approve the extension of the disaster declaration was conducted on Friday morning during a special meeting of the Dallas County Commissioner’s Court. At the meeting, Jenkins shared numerous Wuhan virus projection models illustrating a rise in the number of which are expected to peak in the county on April 20.
However, Jenkins clarified on Friday afternoon that the Safer-at-Home orders and the Disaster Declaration are different documents and that the commissioner’s court approved the extension to the Disaster Declaration, although it was still up to him to determine the effective dates of his Safer-at-Home order.
On Twitter, Jenkins revealed that the Safer-at-Home order will now go into effect through April 30. Jenkins noted that he has the power to extend the Safer-at-Home order until May 20 if he has to, since the disaster declaration had been approved until that date.
Jenkins tweeted, “Based on the extension of the Declaration of Disaster granted today, I am extending the Dallas County Safer at Home Order to April 30. The Declaration of Disaster is necessary to provide the tools to lead you through this. The Safer at Home Orders are the rules we ask of you.”

County Commissioner John Wiley Price, who represents the southern portion of Dallas, was the only person who voted against the plan claiming that the restrictions that are currently in effect are “choking” his constituents and recommended that the court allow pawn shops to stay open as an essential business so that people could have easier access to cash.
“We’re going to just kill off an entire community in the next 60 days.” Price declared. “Pick our poison. We either go with COVID-19 and die or we just economically die.”
Certain businesses have been greatly impacted by these closures.
Bar owner Joe Hinkson revealed that he’s lost more than 90 percent of his business.
“I’m livid,” Hinkson stated. “A bar has a short shelf life typically and to survive and prosper and grow in the 10-year period, and be open for 11 years and have something like this happen.”
However, the more progressive urban centers in Texas will look to find ways to make people’s lives miserable.
