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.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis

Published

on

After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”

Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”

Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.

In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.

With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.

Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.

A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.

This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.

Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
