GOP congressman: ‘I’m not talking about guns necessarily’ to fight a Bible-based revolution

Published

on

North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones (R) said recently that it was going to take a “revolution” that did not “necessarily” need to involve guns so that the United States would be in line with the values of the Constitution and the Bible.

In an appearance on Laura Ingraham’s radio show late last week, Jones said that he was upset with the Republican Party for allowing President Barack Obama to spend money on sending troops to help with the Ebola crisis in Africa.

“I want people to understand that the people must take back the government because this is a prime example of the continued spending, and my party, the Republican Party, is doing absolutely nothing about it,” he explained. “I am just sick and tired of seeing what is happening to this country, and it’s not acceptable.”

Ingraham pointed out that Democrats and Republicans agreed on many things, including that Congress did not need to authorize military actions in Iraq.

“They agree on Common Core, they agree on open borders, they agree on immigration amnesty,” she noted.

Jones said that as a “Ron Paul-type Republican” he believed that saving the country was going to take leaders who “understand that we have a bible and we have a constitution. And if we do not follow the Constitution then we will continue to go down this road of collapsing.”

“That’s what we need to do is to have a revolution in this country, and not talking about gun necessarily,” he added. “I’m talking about a revolution of people getting out of their offices and getting into the streets letting their voices be heard.”

“Greed has destroyed America,” Jones opined. “The Bible talks about greed, and when this country started moving jobs out of the manufacturing industry of America to other countries so they could pay people 70 cents an hour instead of $18 an hour, this was the beginning of exactly what you just said. And if we don’t take back this country then I don’t know what our grandchildren are going to have to look forward to.”

Chief Justice Roberts admonishes lawyers at Senate impeachment trial

Published

on

Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court John Roberts made his first major intervention in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.

After House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) finished his closing arguments on why former National Security Advisor John Bolton should testify, the White House team went on the attack. Yelling and demanding apologies, the president's team was more animated than they'd been all night. Roberts then admonished the House and White House on their language.

Claiming the Senate is the "world's greatest deliberative body" -- despite what he had witnessed during 12 hours of the impeachment trial -- Roberts complained about language that was "not conducive to civil discourse."

White House lawyers begin yelling at Democrats during late-night impeachment trial — after Trump starts tweeting

Published

on

President Donald Trump woke up and began tweeting around midnight EST during the Senate impeachment trial over the amendments over the rules. That's when a noticeable thing changed on the Senate floor: Trump's team started yelling.

Nearing 1 a.m. EST Tuesday morning while the president was tweeting about impeachment, his team began attacking Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) personally. They called him a liar and accused him of attacking the president and demanded an apology. After nearly 12 hours this was the first time the White House got even remotely animated after a dull defense of the president.

Here is the self-inflicted blunder Mitch McConnell made that destroyed his entire case: ex-DOJ official

Published

on

The former chief of the criminal fraud section at the Department of Justice broke down a mistake made by Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) late on Tuesday evening.

McConnell urged something known as "vote stacking" in which there would be a vote-a-rama sequence of vote after vote -- without any debate on the amendments.

Andrew Weissmann, who played a management role in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, explained how McConnell undermined his own argument.

"I think Mitch McConnell may have made a bit of a miscalculation there because what he is really saying -- 'Can you stack these?' -- is it doesn't matter what you say, because we're going to vote against it," he explained.
