TX Conservative Leader Targets Lt. Governor Dan Patrick’s Gun Control Scheme

Published

on

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.

He said:

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.

President Trump: Best Pro-Life President Ever?

Published

on

Karen Cross, the Political Director for National Right to Life, praised President Donald Trump for his pro-life efforts during his administration.

At Life News, she wrote “President Donald J. Trump and his Administration have established more pro-life policies than any other president in history.

Ever.”

The National Right to Life Committee endorsed president Trump’s re-election bid on July 4, 2019.

That day, Carol Tobias, the president of National Right to Life, said:

“As our nation celebrates Independence Day, we are proud to endorse the only presidential candidate who stands for the unalienable right to life. From his first day in office, President Trump and his Administration have been dedicated to advancing policies that protect the fundamental right to life for the unborn, the elderly, and the medically dependent and disabled.”

One of the Trump administration’s first actions as president was to restore the Mexico City Policy, which bars tax funds from going to organizations that carry out abortions or lobby to bring pro-abortion laws to host countries. Trump followed up by expanding this policy to keep $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to bankroll the global abortion industry.

The Trump Administration also slashed funding to the United Nations Population Fund due to that agency’s involvement with China’s forced abortion program.

President Trump originally pledged “to veto any legislation that weakens current pro-life federal policies and laws, or that encourages the destruction of innocent human life at any state.”

According to Cross, President Trump vowed to sign the following pro-life legislative items:

  • The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act;
  • The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; and
  • The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.

The National Right to Life Political Director emphasized the importance of the 2020 elections. She stated that this election “will determine who appoints justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous federal judges to lower courts.”

Having Republican control of the Senate will allow Trump to continue to nominate conservative judges.

So far, Trump has nominated 192 federal judges, which include U.S. Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, who were ultimately confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Having Nancy Pelosi out of the picture as House Speaker will allow for pro-life legislation to actually move out of the House.

All in all, pro-lifers’ best bet for any type of policy change will be for Republicans to gain control of all three branches of government.
