Despicable, shameless left-wing activists and @wendydavis using the credibility of veterans to spread lies. Claiming @chiproytx doesn’t support Gold Star families is beyond the pale - he’s a cosponsor of the Gold Star Family Tax Relief Act.

I rarely weigh in on this kind of thing but this infuriates me. Wendy Davis is using veterans and Gold Star families for her political advantage and I won’t stand for it.

If Wendy Davis doesn't denounce this, she has no business representing a single Texan.
Wendy Davis lied to this Gold Star family and manipulated them into doing an ad for her.

It is shameful.

Here is the truth:
There have been four specific Gold Star related bills passed in the House, and Chip voted for them - not against them.
Wendy Davis and her progressive allies are being disingenuous. Chip Roy was a cosponsor of the Gold Star Family Tax Relief Act and clearly supported the policy, but not the larger spending package it was included in.
Wendy Davis must call for this ad to be taken down and apologize for lying to grieving Gold Star families and manipulating them for her own political gain. It’s gross. We will not stand for it.

As a veteran, I always appreciate it when people say “thank you” to veterans on this day.

But I also encourage them to say “Never Forget.”
When you say “Never Forget” to a veteran, you are implying that, as an American, you are in it with them. Connected together as grateful Americans who will never forget the sacrifices made by veterans past and present, and their families, especially.
As veterans, we know what we signed up for. It was not a “service” in the traditional sense of the word… but rather an honor.

Joe Biden wants you to believe that no one lost their insurance under Obamacare, that “Biden Care” wouldn’t decimate the private insurance industry, that his hands are clean of failed immigration policy, & that he never opposed fracking.

None of that is true. FACT CHECK THREAD!
Joe Biden said people “did not lose their insurance” under his health care plan.

But that’s not true. Millions lost their insurance.

This claim that no one lost their insurance was rated the lie of the year by PolitiFact.
Joe went on to say that “not one person with private insurance” would lose it under “Biden Care”

But that’s not true either.

“Government insurance options mainly erode, or ‘crowd out,’ private insurance, rather than provide coverage to the uninsured.”…

THREAD - Let’s destroy this radical claim.

There isn’t a single shred of evidence for this radical position, in fact the opposite is true. The costs of a Green New Deal will far outweigh the benefits, both to our environment and our economy. Here is why.
For our environment, energy demand will only increase in the coming years, and that demand will either be met by American energy or by countries like Russia or Iran.

Russian natural gas shipped abroad has 47% more emissions than American LNG.…
America has some of the highest energy production standards in the world. Russia? Not so much.

Just last year, Russian oil companies shipped massive supplies of toxic, intentionally tainted Russian oil abroad.

Is this who we want powering the world?

Joe Biden made it clear last night that he is the Democrat Party.

He acts like he’s the moderate who will control the radical left. But the reality is the exact opposite. It is the radical left who controls Joe Biden.

Just look at his own words from the debate.

The Democrat Party is now the party of abolishing the filibuster and packing the Supreme Court with liberal judges.

Biden wouldn’t even answer the question about whether he would support this policy.…
Democrats are now the party of the Green New Deal. Joe Biden said it is not his plan, but he defended it last night, saying it would “pay for itself.”

And if it isn’t his plan... why does he praise it on his website as a “crucial framework”...? Because AOC is his energy advisor.

Joe thinks you can’t tell the difference between absentee voting and universal mail-in voting.

Absentee voting is safe and secure. If you requested an absentee ballot, you should use it.

Universal mail-in voting is vulnerable to abuse and mistakes.

Here are examples. THREAD:
More than 1 in 5 mail-in ballots were rejected in New York City during a recent election - as many as 84,000 ballots were invalidated - delaying the results of the election for more than a month.…
As NPR reported in July, mail-in voting “is fraught with potential problems. Hundreds of thousands of ballots go uncounted each year because people make mistakes, such as forgetting to sign the form or sending it in too late”…

Remember when they told us that “defund the police” didn’t mean defund the police?

Remember when they said bail reform wouldn’t affect your safety?

This is today’s Democrat party. Do you trust them to protect your family? You shouldn’t, look at these stats (1/3):
