Naturally…

With just a week to go until the Texas GOP convention, the far-left mayor of Houston decided to shut down the event. The reason given is because of spiking COVID-19 numbers.

Here’s the scoop, via ABC13:

HOUSTON, Texas — Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner announced on Wednesday that the city has canceled its contract with the GOP convention, which was scheduled at the George R. Brown Convention Center on July 16.

Turner noted, “Look, these are some very serious times, and the safety of the people attending the convention, the employees, their family members, the people in the city of Houston, have their public health concerns. First responders, police, fire, and municipal workers will all be in contact or in close proximity to this indoor gathering. Simply, the public health concerns outweighed anything else.

LOOK:

There are varying opinions regarding just about every aspect of the COVID-19 threat, and they are being defended vociferously from all angles.

For many, the main concern is that we are being perhaps too cautious on the medical front, and not spending enough time considering the economic ramifications of a prolonged economic slowdown.

Others fear that we are reopening too flippantly, and that the coming second wave of the virus will be a nightmare on account of our rush to normalcy.

Worse still: There are many within local and federal positions of power who are looking to invade our privacy under the auspices of “security.”

In Texas, this concern has now boiled over into a lawsuit, spearheaded by one of the Lone Star State’s most outspoken conservative voices.

Conservative firebrand Steven Hotze has launched another lawsuit challenging Gov. Greg Abbott’s coronavirus response, joined by current and former lawmakers and several hundred business owners who argue the state’s contact tracing program infringes on their privacy and ability to make a living.

The civil action filed Monday in federal court takes on the disparate operating capacities the governor mandated in his “COVID-19 lottery,” claiming Abbott’s actions have limited restaurants and bars with 25 or 50 percent limits, while bicycle shops, liquor stores, pool cleaners and supermarkets are running at full tilt.

Hotze’s team was not mincing their words either.

“He chooses the winners and losers,” Woodfill said. “It’s unconstitutional what he’s doing. We think the Texas Disaster Act is unconstitutional, all the executive orders … that suspend laws are unconstitutional. Only the legislature can do that.”

And Woodfill has a point, considering the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution is meant to shield us from any from of unwarranted search or seizure, and has largely been interpreted as to include information that Americans have a right to keep private, such as location data.

Save conservative media!

The short clip in the tweet below shows Joe Biden looking away from the interviewer, peering at a camera or monitor or person, saying “I lost that line.” In other words, it is blatantly evident that he is being spoon-fed answers during this interview – and likely others, too. The saddest part? The reporter just goes along with it, as if there’s nothing “off” here. Imagine if Trump did this with Sean Hannity. Instant pandemonium.

How about them apples?

If the mainstream media reported on these quotes from Ruth Bader Ginsburg about NFL players kneeling for the national anthem, a lot of lefties would be very, very disappointed. Ginsburg and conservatives may not have agreed on most issues but at the end of the day, the former Supreme Court justice appeared to be a Democrat who actually loved her country. Check this out, via Breitbart: As America continues to reflect on the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, it is notable to remember that she was not a supporter of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protests during the national anthem. […] “I think it’s really dumb of them,” Ginsburg said of Kaepernick’s protests during an interview with Katie Couric in October of 2016. RBG added, “If they want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive. If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that.” Here are some reactions from the Twitter world on RBG’s passing… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1307151318201622528 https://twitter.com/BillClinton/status/1307143819478159360 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1307146028555014145 https://twitter.com/politico/status/1307149781186342917 https://twitter.com/BreitbartNews/status/1307146967420727296 https://twitter.com/TomFitton/status/1307142540123090944 https://twitter.com/nowthisnews/status/1307157591836033027 https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1307157179133296640
