  • Biggs, Massie call on Trump to remove troops from Afghanistan

    The Hill ^ | July 8 | BY JULIEGRACE BRUFKE
    Two House conservatives are calling on President Trump to “immediately withdraw" all troops from Afghanistan and Iraq, arguing the country needs to stop engaging in “endless wars.” In a letter sent to President Trump on Tuesday, House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) said keeping a military presence in the region could mean a loss of power for the U.S. “Throughout your entire presidency, you have worked tirelessly to Make America Great Again. We are confident you will repeat this feat again after this pandemic. However, the United States will not remain a great power for...

    Washington Examiner ^ | June 26 | Kerry Picket
    Rep. Thomas Massie isn't in a forgive-and-forget kind of mood. The libertarian-leaning House member on Tuesday crushed his Republican primary opponent 88%-12% in the northern Kentucky district he's represented since 2013. That despite several high-profile House Republicans initially backing, and sending campaign contributions to, his primary opponent. House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming in the spring criticized Massie over delaying tactics on passage of a coronavirus economic relief bill. The proposal became law, but not before Massie used parliamentary tactics to force lawmakers to return to Washington as the pandemic worsened. The feud was an extension of tensions...

    NYT ^ | June 12th | Catie Edmondson
    ... As Representative Thomas Massie fights to hold off a Republican opponent and defend his seat in a deeply conservative and overwhelmingly white district in northeastern Kentucky, race has become a central line of attack in the increasingly bitter contest, with both candidates accusing each other of bigoted views. Mr. Massie was the first to broach the subject in April, when he shared a series of Twitter posts and articles that contained racist and anti-immigrant tropes written by his challenger, Todd McMurtry. After The New York Times reported on the material, Republican leaders who had backed Mr. McMurtry renounced him....

    Todd McMurtry Challenges Thomas Massie in Kentucky By Elise Cooper Todd McMurtry is running in Kentucky's Fourth Congressional District Republican primary against Thomas Massie, the essence of the swamp. Todd has been a practicing attorney for twenty-eight years. Last year he was voted one of the top fifty attorneys out of a pool of 20,000 by licensed members of the bar. People might know him from one of his most recent cases: defending Nick Sandmann, the Covington Catholic High School student, against CNN. The initial video released made it appear that the students had triggered the incident, which led to...
  • This Is How Long Thomas Massie's Challenge to the Wuhan Coronavirus Relief Bill Lasted

    Well, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is probably the most hated man in Washington D.C. right now. He threatened to derail passage of the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill that sailed through the Senate on a 96-0 vote. It’s a $2 trillion package that admittedly has some bad stuff in it, but American businesses and workers need relief as the nation fights this Wuhan coronavirus outbreak that’s infected over 85,000 people and killed at least 1,200. States have adopted severe measures to stop the spread, instituting bans of mass gatherings of more than 10 people, closing non-essential businesses for a least a...
  • The Fake Outrage at Rep. Thomas Massie is Outrageous

    During the debate on the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill, one of the most consequential pieces of legislation in contemporary history, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) did something appalling. With the agreement of both Republicans and Democrats in House leadership, the Speaker blocked a recorded vote on the bill. It is an old leadership trick to protect members from controversial votes by not forcing them to take a position. In retrospect, this is going to be one of the most important votes the sitting members of Congress will ever take, yet they came up with excuses not to...

    House members will pass the coronavirus relief bill at some point today. The big question is what else they may pass around on the way back to hold a voice vote. Representatives are traveling quickly back to the capitol after Rep. Thomas Massie made it clear that he would force a voice vote on the CARES Act, and his colleagues are less than pleased to take a break from their social distancing: Massie’s unpopularity stretches to the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue, too.

The Garbage men are still doing they jobs, young teens are working the Grocery checkout for less than $15.00 an hour.

Constitution requires a quorum for members to pass a bill, not 2 or 3 people yelling Yah then claiming the bill passed by a quorum majority. Do your...
