Louie Gohmert blasts 800-page WH report: ‘This climate change was global freezing in the 1970s’

Published

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) on Wednesday suggested that President Barack Obama was wasting time by studying the impacts of climate change because global warming had been “global freezing back in the 1970s.”

In an interview with World Net Daily, the Texas Republican pointed the finger at the president for a so-called “secret waiting list” that allegedly allowed 40 veterans to die while waiting to get health care in Phoenix.

“It is clear there is a systemic problem with the Veterans Administration, and it didn’t just all of a sudden crop up under this president,” Gohmert remarked. “President Bush started making some inroads, and this president has made some efforts. The fact is, the buck does stop with the top commander over all of our armed forces and over all executive branch activities.”

“If the president wanted to make this as much of a central issue as he has this ‘climate-change’ issue – which allows the government to take over more people’s property and their rights and their lives – then we’d get the VA fixed very quickly,” he added, referencing a 840-page climate change report released by the White House on Tuesday.

“Apparently this climate change was global freezing back in the 1970s,” Gohmert quipped. “Then global warming and then, when it quit warming, now it’s climate change.”

“That apparently is a much bigger issue to this administration than helping those who laid down their lives and put themselves in danger for the good of the country.”

Fox News newsman Shep Smith began his Monday show by calling President Donald Trump's racist tweets about four Congresswomen of color "xenophobic" and a "distraction" for the purpose of "division."

"Our reporting begins with President Trump’s latest misleading and xenophobic eruption of destruction and division," Smith opened with. "Directed this time at a group of minority women in the United States Congress, 'go back to where you came from.' That is what the president wrote on Twitter just yesterday and today he called them haters of America and Jews. The president is defending those statements and when asked if he thought the Tweets might be racist, his response, 'Not at all.'"

Even neo-Nazis think Trump’s racism ‘goes too far sometimes’: Investigative reporter

Published

on

An investigative reporter that has embedded with neo-Nazis and Klan members explained Monday that President Donald Trump’s language echoes what these far-right groups have been saying for years.

In an MSNBC panel discussion, Vegas Tenold explained that when Trump says things like this it's almost expected at this point because he's been saying racist things since the birther campaign.

"He’s a racist; we have known for a long time that he is a racist," Tenold said. "'Go back to where you came from,' it’s peak racism, it’s, you know, the original form of racism. He’s been on this thing for a long time."

Republican slams Trump for eroding ‘the very basis of what America is all about’

Published

on

On Monday, President Donald Trump doubled down on comments that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) should leave America if they're so unhappy with the status quo.

He posted a series of tweets making the same point over the weekend. In response, former Ohio Governor John Kasich tweeted his displeasure at the President's behavior.

What @realDonaldTrump said about Democrat women in Congress is deplorable and beneath the dignity of the office. We all, including Republicans, need to speak out against these kinds of comments that do nothing more than divide us and create deep animosity - maybe even hatred.
