Ted Cruz to address pro-war gathering hosted by pastor who prayed for ‘military coup’ to remove Obama

Published

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will speak at a church headed by a self-proclaimed prophet who prayed for a military coup to remove Obama and claimed credit for the California drought.

The Republican presidential candidate will address “National Security Forum” this weekend at Rick Joyner’s MorningStar Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina, reported Right Wing Watch.

The event is officially hosted by the South Carolina chapter of Americans for Peace Prosperity and Security — a newly formed pro-war group headed by former government officials with ties to military contractors.

The Oak Initiative, a conservative group led by Joyner, is promoting the event, which will be moderated by former Rep. Mike Rogers — who called in 2014 for extended U.S. military presence in Iraq before leaving Congress to host a radio program.

Joyner is perhaps best known for begging God in 2013 to consider a “military takeover” to spare the United States from the “serious tyranny” of President Barack Obama, and he was among the few conspiracy theorists who welcomed the prospect of martial law imposed as part of the Jade Helm 15 training exercise.

The right-wing pastor has bragged that his prayers caused the California drought, and he also claimed to have served a miracle never-ending casserole.

David Holmes blew up one of the central arguments in the impeachment defense of President Donald Trump.

The president's Republican allies have argued that Ukraine was not aware that congressionally approved aid had been held up by the White House as Trump demanded an investigation of Joe Biden, but Holmes explained why that's wrong, reported the Washington Post.

Holmes, a political counselor at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, told congressional investigators that Ukrainian officials seemed to have figured out that the pause, which had been reported in late August by Politico, was related to Trump's call for an investigation.

The GOP wanted Sondland to be Trump’s Ukraine ‘fall guy’ — then it blew up in their faces: NYT columnist

Published

on

According to New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg, Republican hopes that they could turn E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland into "fall guy" for Donald Trump's Ukraine scandal ended up being a disastrous miscalculation.

Following testimony given by the millionaire Trump appointee that was televised nationally where he clearly stated that the president was using foreign aid to get political dirt on possible 2020 presidential election foe Joe Biden, the NYT columnist claims the GOP now has a "Gordon problem."

Republican’s latest anti-Schiff sign hilariously backfires

Published

on

House Republicans have had a difficult time defending President Donald Trump and his actions on Ukraine. They've tried to pivot to attack the process and claim that somehow Democrats are stacking the deck against the GOP. Unfortunately, however, they can't even do that correctly.

After a lunch break, Republicans in the House Intelligence Committee propped up a sign reading, "Days since Adam Schiff followed the rules 0." That would mean that Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) is following the rules today. If Republicans meant to attack Schiff or claim that Democrats were ignoring the House rules it would read a larger number of days, for example, "4 days since Adam Schiff followed House rules."
