Now, however, some in Congress are looking to provide a backdoor to instant citizenship for unlawful immigrants who are brought to the U.S. as minorsóalso known as ďDREAMers,Ē after the Development, Relief, and...

Bring back earmarks, Rogers, who was first elected to Congress in 2002, told his colleagues. Ö New Republican members backed by the Tea Party movement have railed against earmarks as a symbol of out-of-control government spending and unaccountable lawmakers.

    Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert has admitted what most Republican voters have known for a very long timeóthat the Republican Party leadership is more concerned with the dictates of political correctness and scorn from a liberal press corps than with fighting for the rights of the American people. Though Gohmert maintains Republican big-wigs like John Boehner and Mitch McConnell really are committed to the defeat of Barack Hussein Obama, he stated in a January interview with Rush Limbaugh that Party elders believe the only way to accomplish it is ďby being nice.Ē (1) Thatís why Republicans were told to ďhandle [Nancy...

    In his umpteenth pivot towards jobs, President Barack Obama spoke out on Sept. 8, forcefully telling Congress they should "pass this bill," referring to the American Jobs Act. Little did the president know that the "American Jobs Act" would soon be a Republican bill filed by Texas Congressman and Aggie, Louie Gohmert. This move was the political equivalent of Ashton Kutcher frolicking up to the president to say, "You've just been punk'd. Americans first heard of the president's new jobs plan shortly before his vacation in Martha's Vineyard. The president urged Congress 17 times to "pass this bill" in one...
  • Conservative Nabs Name ĎAmerican Jobs Actí After Obama Delay (no Dem would file Obama's bill)

    President Obama repeatedly asked members of Congress to pass the American Jobs Act last week. But when no Democrat filed Obamaís bill after he presented it to Congress, a conservative congressman swiped the name for his own legislation. The American Jobs Act introduced in the House of Representatives looks quite different from the version President Obama outlined in his speech to Congress. Instead of hiking taxes on working Americans to pay for another stimulus, Rep. Louie Gohmertís (R-TX) legislation offers a tax cut. UPDATE: Gohmertís bill now has a number. Itís HR 2911. Text of the legislation is below.

    Rep. Louis Gohmert (R.-Texas) yesterday artfully declined to say that President Barack Obama was lying when he said he could not guarantee Social Security checks would go out after August 3 if there was no deal on the limit. Gohmert would only say he knew from the rules of the House of Representatives that the president "never lies"--an apparently sarcastic reference to the plight of Rep. Joe Wilson (R.-S.C.) who rebuked Obama with a famous shout during a 2009 speech to a joint session of Congress. While weighing in on the debt ceiling debate Gohmert said at a Capitol Hill...

    ( - Rep. Louis Gohmert (R.-Texas), a former prosecutor and judge and a current member of the House Judiciary Committee, is offering some advice to Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, who has gained national attention since Saturday for his suggestions that radio and television talk shows were somehow responsible for the shooting attack in Tucson that took the lives of 6 people and wounded 14 others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Says Rep. Gohmert to the sheriff: ďShut up before you do any more damage to the prosecutionís case.Ē At the Capitol on Wednesday, Gohmert told, ďAs far as advice...
