Why is Chip Roy Defending John McCain?

Published

on

Freshmen Republican Congressmen are obsessing over John McCain’s legacy.

It’s well documented that Representatives like Dan Crenshaw aren’t much to write home about in terms of policies that will actually bring the country back to its limited government roots. In fact, he was one of the first to defend McCain’s legacy when Trump slammed McCain this week.

However Crenshaw was not alone.

Roy went on Twitter to express his disapproval with Trump’s tweets:

I disagree with the POTUS standing in front of M1A1 Abram tanks & the American flag and spending time trashing POW veteran and former US Senator McCain, and as Commander-in-Chief characterizing our time fighting in the Middle East as an unqualified disaster.

Although Roy’s response was relatively tame, it is still concerning that he feels the need to defend John McCain.

McCain’s legacy is one of shilling for legacy institutions like the military-industrial complex, championing military adventure in the Middle East, and maintaining the U.S. open border status quo.

To his credit, Roy has worked diligently to address the crisis at the border. In fact, Roy has gone above and beyond the call of duty by introducing legislation to declare drug cartels foreign terrorists organizations..

Additionally, Roy at least recognizes that  we should “re-think our strategy & engagement” in the Middle East.

On top of that, he has signaled his support for Trump’s policies:

I have stood by the President and will continue to do so when it comes to policies that will secure the border, drain the swamp, restore fiscal sanity, and establish healthcare freedom.

Roy should continue working proactively like he has on the issue of cartels and completely leave behind the establishment virtue signaling.

It’s a new era in D.C. and it’s time to stop invoking ghosts of the past.

Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Published

on

Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.

One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.

While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley

Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”

However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.

The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed.  In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.

Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.

She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.

The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
