WATCH: Louie Gohmert Shreds The Democrat Party and its’ Racist History

On the floor of the House today, Texas GOP Congressman Louie Gohmert filed a motion requiring the Democrat Party adopt a new name because of its history of racism and violence against Black Americans.

Watch this clip, followed by the text of Gohmert’s resolution:

Transcript of Gohmert’s Resolution:

  • The Democratic Party platforms of 1840, 1844, 1848, 1852, and 1856 stated “that all efforts of the abolitionists, or others, made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery . . . are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences; and that all such efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanency of the Union, and ought not to be countenanced by any friend of our political institutions.”
  • The Democratic Party platform of 1856 declared that “new states” to the Union should be admitted “with or without domestic slavery, as [the state] may elect.”
  • The Democratic Party platform of 1856 declared that “we recognize the right of the people of all the Territories . . .  to form a Constitution, with or without domestic slavery.”
  • The Democratic Party platform of 1860, in seeking to uphold the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 that required law enforcement officials to arrest any individual suspected of being a runaway slave, stated that “the enactments of the State Legislatures to defeat the faithful execution of the Fugitive Slave Law are hostile in character, subversive of the Constitution, and revolutionary in their effect.”
  • No Democrat in Congress supported the 14th Amendment, which gave full citizenship to freed slaves. It passed in 1868 with 94 percent Republican support and zero support from Democrats.
  • No Democrat in Congress supported the 15th Amendment, which gave freed slaves the right to vote. It passed in 1870 with 100 percent Republican support and zero support from Democrats.
  • Various state Democratic Party officials enacted policies to disenfranchise and “systematically suppress” the right of African Americans to vote. The resolution specifically cites the 1902 Constitution of the State of Virginia that disenfranchised about 90 percent of the African American voters at the time, forcibly reducing the number of eligible African American voters from about 147,000 in 1901 to about 10,000 by 1905. The resolution notes that this measure was “supported almost exclusively by Virginia Democrats.”
  • The administration of President Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, “began a racial segregation policy for U.S. government employees and, by 1914, the Wilson administration’s Civil Service instituted the requirement that a photograph be submitted with each employment application.”
  • When the Democratic Party held its national convention in 1924 in New York City at Madison Square Garden, the event was commonly referred to as the “Klan-Bake” due to the influence of the Ku Klux Klan in the party.
  • Senate Democrats held a 75-calendar day filibuster against the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
  • Former Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV), a known recruiter for the KKK, led the Democrats to oppose civil rights for African Americans.
  • Democrats “enacted and enforced Jim Crow laws and civil codes that forced segregation and restricted freedoms” for African Americans.
  • In June, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ordered the removal of the portraits of four previous Speakers of the House  who served in the Confederacy, stating that these portraits “set back our nation’s work to confront and combat bigotry.” However, Gohmert’s resolution notes that the Speakers that Pelosi removed (Robert M.T. Hunter, Howell Cobb, James L. Orr, and Charles F. Crisp) were all Democrats.

Prior to reading his resolution, Gohmert correctly stated that “A great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred,” Gohmert said. “Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan.”

Epic. And 100% true.

That is all.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Discovers Life at the Tippy-Top is Tough

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Life at the Tippy-top can be hard. – Tuesday was a tough one for freshman congress member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, our intrepid nitwit from the Bronx. Or is she? From the Bronx, that is.

First, she had to fend off legitimate questions about whether she even lives in the district she pretends to represent in congress, a problem for a growing number of Democrats, including Maxine Waters. Then she came under fire for the pay policy she has implemented among her staff, which includes a salary cap of $80,000, with a floor of $52,000.

Critics correctly point out the policy will prevent AOC from hiring top talent, since experienced staffers on Capitol Hill typically are paid in the $150,000 range.  Meanwhile, the ex-bartender with the IQ of an average gin and tonic herself is knocking down a sweet, “tippy-top” salary of $174,000 per year, making others wonder why, if she’s really a committed socialist, she isn’t redistributing most of her wealth among the little people?

Finally, this happened at dinnertime last night:

That’s right: Barely 72 hours after lecturing Americans against the evils of eating hamburgers and other beef products because, like, the environment, or something,  AOC got a small taste of the Sarah Huckabee Sanders treatment, as an enterprising passerby spotted her dining out with a burger-eating monster, captured the moment with his I-Phone and posted it all on Twitter.

For the record, I think members of congress, regardless of how stupid or personally wretched they might be, should be able to dine out in public without fear of such harassment, just as members of the Trump Administration ought to be able to do the same. But if this had to happen to one Democrat not named Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff or Eric Swalwell, it couldn’t have happened to anyone more deserving than the nitwit from the Bronx, er, wherever it is she that she actually resides.

Oh, hey, remember when the Democrats all said that “Climate Change” is the “most pressing national security issue of our time”? – Yeah, they were lying about that, too.

Want proof? Yesterday, the Democrats on the House Energy Resources Committee had scheduled a hearing on the whole subject of “Climate Change” so they could all recite the dogmatic talking points of their favorite religion, but guess what happened?

So few Democrats actually showed up for the hearing that they found themselves outnumbered by the Republicans who chose to attend. Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, recognizing the moment he found himself in, quickly made a motion to adjourn the hearing due to the lack of interest on the part of the Democrats, and the GOP members carried the vote by a 4-2 margin.

Hearing adjourned. Thus, the all-seeing, all-knowing, all-powerful god of “Climate Change” that is responsible for literally every uncomfortable aspect of  human existence if all the climate “scientists” are to be believed, was left free to continue its ravaging of our planet by the members of the United States Congress. All because the Democrats aren’t really all that concerned about “Climate Change”, but will continue pounding home their talking points on the subject as long as they poll well among the frightened, ignorant masses.

Here’s all you really need to know about Michael Cohen. – I’ve written about this before, but it deserves repeating today since the Rat’s opening statement has been very predictably leaked in advance by some Democrat to the New York Times.

All you need to know about Michael Cohen is:

  1. He is about to go spend a lot of time in prison because he was already found guilty of lying to congress and to federal prosecutors; and
  2. His own lawyer is a guy named Lanny Davis.

Many of you will be familiar with Lanny Davis. Here is the truth I wrote about Mr. Davis last August 30th:

Lanny Davis has made a fabulous living for the last 25 years being a professional liar on television.  He has lied for a living on behalf of a seemingly endless array of skunks and snakes, starting with Bill and Hillary Clinton and is now doing it for ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

Lanny Davis is, simply put, a professional liar, nothing more. When you are a client who, out of all the lawyers in the country available to represent you in your case, chooses to be represented by a professional liar like Lanny Davis, that means your plan is to lie, lie, keep lying, and lie some more. There is literally no other reason for anyone to hire Mr. Davis.

So it should come as no surprise to anyone that Michael Cohen is planning to tell yet another completely different story than he has told other congressional committees in his prior testimonies. He has invented a new fairy tale that conveniently supports all of the Democrat/media fake narratives about President Donald Trump in the hopes of getting his prison sentence reduced.

Lanny Davis has been inventing fairy tales that support favored media/Democrat narratives for 25 years now.  What’s one more?

That is all.

All Deep State Cabal Roads Eventually Lead to Peter Strzok

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It was a dirty job, but somebody had to do it. – Texas Congressman and former state Appeals Court Justice Louie Gohmert published a devastating criticism of ex-FBI Director Robert Mueller on Tuesday.  Those of you who still believe that the Witch Hunter in Chief is some sort of sterling individual with an unassailable background of defending truth, justice and the American Way should take half an hour out of your day today and read it.  It will disabuse you forever of those silly notions.

I was already aware of most of the despicable corruption in Mueller’s background, but one item I had not been aware of until reading Gohmert’s piece was the “5 Years Up or Out Policy” he implemented while FBI Director.  This policy required that, “after an FBI employee was in any type of supervisory position for five years, he or she had to either come to Washington to sit at a desk or get out of the FBI.”

This idiotic policy mirrors policies used in the private sector by giant corporations as a means of passively-aggressively keeping their workforce younger and less expensive by encouraging older, more expensive employees to resign or take demotions in place rather than being forced to change job locations.  In practice, corporations see the money saved by forcing younger workers into mid-level management positions before they’re really qualified outweighing the loss of institutional knowledge.

But at the nation’s premier law enforcement agency, this massive loss of experience and institutional knowledge and – perhaps most importantly – historic case knowledge was devastating.  For Mueller, Gohmert speculates that the most satisfying aspect of the policy was that it robbed the agency of more experienced agents who are naturally going to be more likely to question the judgement and authority of senior FBI management.

It also resulted in juvenile delinquents like Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok and Attorney Lisa Page being thrust into positions that were well above their competence or maturity levels.  This juvenilization of the FBI made it much easier for Barack Obama and Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch and James Comey to come in and utterly corrupt what had become an organization filled with yes-men-and-women.

Again, regardless of your opinion of Mueller, go read the piece.  You’ll be smarter for having done so.

Cause, meet Effect. – Speaking of Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok, here’s a great practical example of how Mueller’s efforts to juvenilize the agency, having thrust this emotional midget (as clearly demonstrated by his 50,000 texts with his mistress) into a senior position in the FBI’s counterintelligence division, rendered the Agency more vulnerable to corruption.

We’ve long known that Strzok was one of the agents who interviewed General Mike Flynn in an effort to entrap him into lying to the FBI; we’ve long known that Strzok was smack-dab in the middle of the sham investigation into Princess Pantsuit’s illegal email server; we’ve long known that he played a role in misleading the FISA court into issuing a warrant to spy on the Trump Campaign; in fact, at pretty much every turn in the scheme to fix the 2016 election and then to force Donald Trump from office, Strzok’s name just keeps turning up.  Yesterday, it got even worse.

In a terrific piece at RealClearInvestigations, Paul Sperry reveals that Super-Duper Agent Strzok was also involved in constructing the daily intelligence briefings for then-President Barack Obama.  But it’s not just that he was involved, but that he was in fact hand-selected by then-CIA Director John Brennan to serve as the intermediary for information flow between Brennan and ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey:

A source close to the House investigation said Brennan himself selected the CIA and FBI analysts who worked on the ICA, and that they included former FBI counterespionage chief Peter Strzok.

“Strzok was the intermediary between Brennan and [former FBI Director James] Comey, and he was one of the authors of the ICA,” according to the source. [emphasis added]

So, what’s the big deal?  The big deal is that Brennan was obviously using the extremely compliant and malleable Strzok to control the information Comey received, and what ultimately got to the President of the United States of America.  Comey’s been running around the country claiming “I don’t know” about all sorts of things that took place under his watch during this period of time, and in many instances those denials are no doubt true because Brennan, through Strzok, made sure he didn’t know.

Brennan’s use of Strzok in this role also potentially resolves this burning question:  Why were Page and ex-FBI General Counsel James Baker jettisoned from their demoted positions a few weeks ago while Strzok has been kept in place?  All three have obviously been serving as cooperating witnesses with the ongoing investigations by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber since last fall – so why were Page and Baker released from their in-house purgatory while Super-Duper Agent Strzok remains sheltered in place?

The answer now seems obvious:  Only Strzok has direct knowledge of the entire information flow on all the DOJ/FBI shenanigans during and following the 2016 campaign, all the way up to the office of the presidency.  So he’s not quite done yet.

The great irony in all of this is that Mueller, the guy whose idiotic policies literally created Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok, is now running the sham investigation designed to deflect the media’s and public’s attention away from the monster that he himself created.  If you were still wondering why Rod Rosenstein specifically chose Mueller to be his Special Counsel, well, now you know.  Mueller not only knows where all the bodies are buried, he literally created them.

Just another day in all roads lead to Peter Strzok America.

That is all.
