  • Congressman Gohmert Reads My Article on Islamic Racism in Congress (Greenfield aka Sultan Knish)

    In 2015, slavery is no longer freedom, but it certainly is tolerance. Congressman Louie Gohmert read a portion of my article "Pull Down the Slaver Flags of Islam" on the floor of Congress which addresses the hypocrisy of censoring the Dukes of Hazzard while opening the doors to Islamic racism and other forms of supremacist bigotry and nostalgia for slave-owning cultures. When Obama condemned Christianity for the Crusades, only a thousand years too late, in attendance was the Foreign Minister of Sudan; a country that practices slavery and genocide. Obama could have taken time out from his rigorous denunciation of...

    Rep. Louie Gohmert took to the House floor to deliver an impassioned speech about history, with a lesson on hypocrisy, reminding the nation and those on the left the rabbit hole of removing all things perceived as racist – like the Confederate flag – is a deep one that leads right to the Democratic Party. The context of Gohmert’s remarks was the nationwide condemnation of the Confederate flag, leading to a congressional attempt to boot the banner from some federally managed properties. Gohmert first reminded the cause of the shooting at the Charleston, South Carolina, church that left nine dead...

    Fellow Conservative: I’m writing to urge you to support Ted Cruz for President. The Republican primary field is getting crowded, but I endorsed Ted because he has been a steadfast patriot in the fight to ensure that America’s best days remain ahead of us. On conservative fight after fight, Ted Cruz has led the way: Ted led the battle against Obamacare, while fighting for the right and ability to choose our own best health care. Ted led the fight opposing amnesty for illegal aliens amidst pressure from both parties to pass comprehensive immigration reform that included sweeping amnesty. Ted led...

    United States Congressman Louie Gohmert revealed Thursday that the Obama administration had “outed” an active Israeli spy mission in Iran. Israel, he said, had infiltrated Israeli spies into mainland Iran via cargo boats. He dropped the bombshell in a speech at EMET’s 9th annual “Rays of Light in the Darkness” gala dinner. Rep. Gohmert, who is one Israel’s fiercest and truest friends on Capitol Hill, stated: “We are on the brink of disaster.” He listed a stream of virulently anti-Israel actions taken by President Obama which included the “outing” of the Israeli spy mission, and the Obama Administration’s disclosing of...

    Jade Helm 15, a large-scale military operation conducted by U.S. Army Special Operations Command and service members from the military’s four branches, scheduled to take place in several states between July 15 and September 15, 2015, has elicited a firestorm of criticism. Many have gone so far as to claim the exercises are a prelude to the imposition of martial law, especially in Texas, one of the states designated as “hostile” territory. However, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) puts the issue in the proper perspective, noting why it’s reasonable that Americans would be concerned about the operation.

    Once I observed the map depicting “hostile,” “permissive” and “uncertain” states and locations, I was rather appalled that the hostile areas amazingly have a Republican majority and believe in the sanctity of the United States Constitution. When the federal government begins, even in practice, games or exercises, to consider any U.S. city or state in “hostile” control and trying to retake it, the message becomes extremely calloused and suspicious. Such labeling tends to make people who have grown leery of federal government overreach become suspicious of whether their big brother government anticipates certain states may start another civil war or...

    Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is running for president. His candidacy should not be overlooked. Many are not familiar with him, which is not surprising because for most of Iowa it is still very early in the caucus process. But the senator has attributes that may distinguish him from an unusually crowded field of GOP contenders. First, he went to Harvard. No, I am not writing about Ted Kennedy, I am saying this fellow actually went to not just Harvard, but the Harvard Law School after doing his undergraduate work at Princeton University. He is well educated and very intelligent....

    The urban legends about black helicopters, clandestine military camps, tunnels underneath major airports, secret cabals, hidden detention camps, trains loaded with caskets and body bags and the like were around long before the Internet. The Web just made them easier and quicker to reproduce. One of the tea-party organizations even has reported an anonymous claim there were train cars moving around the country with prison-like shackles installed. Most people dismiss such reports as hyperbole. Fiction. The fretting of nutcases.

    "................This is why we have elections — to choose representatives. The 2014 congressional elections were quite good for conservatives, who are restive and impatient for reform. Many of them fault congressional leaders, especially John Boehner and Senate leader Mitch McConnell, for being too eager to compromise and too generous in their terms. There might have been a mutiny against McConnell if all the likely candidates for Senate majority leader — Senators Rubio, Paul, Cruz, etc. — weren’t running for president. Will Rogers famously joked: “I don’t belong to any organized political party — I’m a Democrat,” and there has long...

Although, he told Hannity that some representatives were “blown away” by the number of constituents lobbying their representatives to vote against Boehner and that some of Boehner’s allies “really scared they didn’t have the votes” and that some representatives...

Conservatives across the fruited plain know too well by now that Boehner's governing coalition is not with them, but with Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama.

She said that Boehner is someone who has “gone along just to get...

    Barring a stunner, John Boehner will be reelected as speaker when the House convenes for the beginning of the 114th Congress. But as opposition from conservatives trickles out, it appears Boehner won't be able to escape the indignity of watching a dozen or more members of his own party refuse to support him in a public vote shortly after noon on Tuesday. For the second consecutive term, a vote that is ordinarily a formality will carry with it the potential for high drama. Two Republicans, Representatives Ted Yoho of Florida and Louie Gohmert of Texas, have launched what can only...

Three-fifths want someone new rather than Speaker Boehner and almost half want someone new rather than Leader McConnell. As of now this finding has received scant media attention. It deserves more.

    Congress: With polls showing most GOP voters in opposition to the Speaker's budget deal and saying they would "probably" or "definitely" prefer a new leader, a Tea Party favorite fires a shot heard around the political world. In 2010, House Speaker John Boehner loved the Tea Party. The grass-roots movement, which arose in opposition to manifestations of big government such as ObamaCare and unlimited taxation and regulation, put the GOP back in control of the House of Representatives and made Boehner Speaker. But by December 2013, Boehner loved the Tea Party and other conservative groups not so much. They had...

    Lawmakers are fuming over President Barack Obama's admission on Thursday that his White House lacks a strategy for dealing with the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) in Syria, with one congressman comparing his performance to the bumbling sheriff's deputy Barney Fife from 'The Andy Griffith Show.' And as House and Senate members piled on with sharp criticism, a former senior aide to a retired defense secretary told MailOnline that the Joint Chiefs of Staff are 'seeing red' and 'spitting nails' following Obama's candid admission. 'They're losing confidence in their mission,' said the long-time Pentagon insider,...

    President Barack Obama's unilateral decision to grant amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants — and the threat of doing the same for countless more — is altering the nation's landscape, but not in the way the Founding Fathers intended, Rep. Louie Gohmert told Newsmax TV on Tuesday. "Holy smokes, this guy truly is fundamentally transforming America, but not into anything that the Founders ever dreamed," he said on "America's Forum." "These are people who are being given amnesty who will eventually be able to vote if they're not already, who have no idea what it takes to maintain...

    Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) joined Gibson with the latest on Obama’s plan of granting amnesty to illegals. Gohmert told Gibson that some of the illegal immigrants are admitting that they are not fleeing gang violence but are paying gang members to sneak them in illegally into America. On stopping Obama’s agenda, Gohmert said when A President is completely lawless it is time to shut down funding to anyone who will act illegally. We must use the powers of the purse granted by the constitution to reign in Obama.

    The life jackets helped many make it across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, the Mexican city across the water from Mission, just west of McAllen. Sources say they come over on rafts ferried by the so-called “coyotes,” the human smugglers whose means of transport are rendered useless whenever discovered by the Border Patrol. Many don’t make it across the river; multiple sources became emotional when recounting their discoveries of small, lifeless bodies washed up along the riverbank.FOX EXCLUSIVE: McALLEN, Texas — Life jackets of all sizes and the occasional punctured raft are strewn along the banks of the Rio Grande,...

    Congressman Louie Gohmert was on Fox News this morning discussing the border humanitarian crisis, a crisis he said was created by this president in an effort to not only overwhelm the system but to create thousands, if not millions of new voters. Gohmert also points out that border agents have told him this is nothing new, that in the past they’ve had floods of illegals crossing the border from Brazil who thought they wouldn’t be sent back, and when a few families were sent back it stopped the problem over time. There’s more. Watch below:

    WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, warns that the United States will become a third world nation if the federal government does not enforce its immigration laws. Speaking to “The Sean Hannity Show,” the Republican lawmaker said the country will be destroyed if the U.S. continues to allow thousands of immigrants to cross the border illegally. “You’ve got to follow the law. You cannot bring hundreds of thousands of people in this country without destroying the country,” Gohmert told Hannity. “Then there’s no place that people can dream about coming.” Gohmert stated that it’s the government’s job to defend...

    Hillary Clinton is not as inevitable as Democrats would like to believe. Her failed book tour has exposed a litany of personal flaws (greed, lack of self-awareness), raised questions about her physical fitness, and revealed her to be severely out of touch with Real America. While there are a number of Republican candidates who might be able to challenge Hillary in 2016, one in particular stands out. In the last week alone, Representative Louie Gohmert (R., Texas) has shown that he has what it takes to connect with masses. For example: Gohmert photobombs (via Twitter) Does Hillary Clinton even understand the concept...

But this is not his first foray into photobombing, as noticed last week by Buzzfeed's Benny Johnson... A truly classic photobomb. Now if only we can get him to crash one of the President's selfies we'll be in business. It would probably look something like this:

    Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) revealed some behind-the-scenes political information Friday as to how House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) was originally elected House majority leader in 2006, and what he did after Republicans suffered a major defeat later that year. The discussion came on the heels of current House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s historic defeat in the Virginia primary. The House is preparing to elect a new majority leader, and Gohmert cautioned the body not to make the same mistake it did with John Boehner. “In 2006, when John Boehner had been majority leader for — since January basically, and had...
