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.

Didn’t Orwell write in “1984” about people being forced to wear masks so everybody would be deemed equal, meaning nobody could be called good looking or ugly? Has anybody made this comparison yet? Food for thought. Anyway, another Republican governor is finally doing the right thing. From Breitbart: Alabama will become one of the next states to eliminate a government-imposed mandate that requires people wear masks in public, sources close to the matter told Breitbart News. A source familiar with state deliberations confirmed that as soon as Friday but definitely in the coming days. Alabama will join several other states nationwide in removing its mandate requiring masks in response to the coronavirus pandemic. https://twitter.com/willainsworthAL/status/1367214634231619584?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367214634231619584%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2021%2F03%2F03%2Fexclusive-sources-alabama-to-join-texas-mississippi-florida-others-in-eliminating-mask-mandates-this-week%2F Check out Biden’s response… https://twitter.com/NBCNews/status/1367192228762963971?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367192228762963971%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-biden-calls-texas-mississippi-governors-of-neanderthals-for-ending-mask-mandate%2F The governor of Mississippi fired back… https://twitter.com/tatereeves/status/1367204994458521616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367204994458521616%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftexas-mississippi-respond-to-biden-neanderthal-remark-about-their-decision-to-reopen And so did Texas Governor Abbott… https://twitter.com/GregAbbott_TX/status/1367243450140086274?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367243450140086274%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftexas-mississippi-respond-to-biden-neanderthal-remark-about-their-decision-to-reopen As you’d expect, Democrats aren’t pleased.

Don’t let Joe speak! Even Biden’s handlers know he isn’t quick on his feet – or in public, in general. We’re talking about a guy who hasn’t held a single solo press conference since becoming POTUS. Check this out, via Daily Wire: Pressure is mounting on President Joe Biden to hold a solo press conference after he has set a modern-day record of 42 days without holding one. Even left-wing publications like CNN are calling out Biden for his lack of transparency, with host Jake Tapper tweeting: [CNN reporter Kevin Liptak] notes that an analysis of the past 100 years shows President Biden’s 15 most recent predecessors all held a formal solo press conference within 33 days of taking office. Biden has not and it’s day 42.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/AZachParkinson/status/1367171678036451333?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367171678036451333%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fquestions-mount-after-biden-sets-modern-record-with-no-solo-press-conferences And here’s the clip from Wednesday where the White House feed cuts out after Biden says he’d be happy to answer questions… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1367303322697400322
