Judge Louie Gohmert Backing Judge Roy Moore In Alabama: ‘He Absolutely Cannot’ Be Bought, Sold Like Luther Strange

 Planned Parenthood

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), a top conservative and former judge before he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, is in the house here in Montgomery’s RSA Activity Center for the debate between conservative Judge Roy Moore and establishment-backed Luther Strange for the GOP primary runoff for the U.S. Senate on Thursday evening.

The runoff is on Tuesday, Sept. 26, but Gohmert is here for the only televised debate between Moore and Strange—and Gohmert is supporting Moore.

“No he cannot [be bought or sold],” Gohmert said of Moore in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News before the debate began. “He absolutely cannot.”

Terrorism, Chivalry, and “The Great Compromise”


It is unsurprising that one of the antifa groups that have been making the news lately identifies itself with John Brown, the revolutionary abolitionist who was hanged shortly after leading an attack upon Harper’s Ferry in 1859.  Brown’s career embodies the progressive fixation with being on the ostensibly “right” side of history, and as the attempted massacre of Republican senators by an unhinged Bernie Sanders activist suggests, Brown’s spirit is alive and well in 2017 America.  Antifas and James Hodgkinson’s failed rampage are not the only signs of said spirit’s continuing presence, however.  The ongoing purge from the South of Confederate symbols also reflects the triumph of Brown’s totalitarian utopianism over novelist-historian Shelby Foote’s “Great Compromise.”

NC Senate leader wants Gov. Cooper to withdraw request to move Confederate monuments

 This June 23, 2015 file photo shows the statue To The North Carolina Women of the Confederacy on the NC State Capitol grounds.

Senate leader Phil Berger said Gov. Roy Cooper’s attempt to move three Confederate monuments from the Capitol grounds would not stand up in court if he succeeds.

In a letter to Cooper his office released Thursday, Berger, a Republican, said the commission does not have the authority to approve the petition. The commission would lose if the residents challenged the move in court, he wrote.

The N.C. Historical Commission is set to consider the Cooper administration’s request Friday morning to move three monuments from Raleigh to Bentonville Battlefield in Johnston County, the site of the state’s largest Civil War battle.

4 Ways Carl Schurz, a 19th Century Missouri Socialist, Impacts America TODAY

Via Billy

Abraham Lincoln, Marxism, Socialism, Communism, Carl Schurz, Lincoln's Marxists, Missouri, History

A friend recently shared with me a short audio CD entitled “Lincoln’s Marxists” – which consisted of a lecture given by Al Benson Jr. (editor and publisher of the Copperhead Chronicle, and author of the book “Lincoln’s Marxists“). The lecture basically consisted of how Karl Marx, author of the Communist Manifesto, praised Lincoln in 1865 as a “single-minded son of the working class” (Also see our resource: A perspective on the American “Civil War”). The lecture examines why Marx and other socialists supported Lincoln’s War and notes their negative influence on modern society today.

As part of this, Benson talks about the Forty-Eighters, a group of radical socialists who sought positions of prominence in American society and government, and supported Abraham Lincoln and his administration in a variety of ways. One of these Forty-Eighters was none other than Missouri’s own Carl Schurz.

Trump DACA/Dreamer Amnesty? Uncomfortable Facts and Huge Political Risks

Via Mike


I voted for Trump in 2016 and was there sooner and with more effort, enthusiasm, and financial support than most Trump supporters. I voted for him because I think the Trump agenda will not only make American Great Again but is also vitally necessary to reverse our rapid moral and cultural decline.

I especially liked his tougher stances on immigration and realism about the nature of Islamic terrorism and Jihad. I have probably written at least 75 articles on immigration and the same number on Islam in the last twelve years. I still believe Trump has a right gut-feel for these issues, even though I have sometimes been annoyed by his wobbling because of a lack of specific knowledge on immigration issues, especially the explosive, multi-layered, and destructive consequences of amnesties.

Trump cannot know everything, but he especially needs to know the likely fiscal, economic, social, cultural, national security, and political consequences of amnesties. They have never boded well for American workers and middle class taxpayers and their families. They do not bode well for any conservative political issues, including gun ownership, right-to-life, and free speech.

Congress, fix and pass this Obamacare replacement

Via Billy

It should be axiomatic among Republicans that Obamacare must be repealed and replaced during the current Congress. The last opportunity to do so appears to be the Graham-Cassidy bill. That being so, it must pass, and it must be improved before it passes. Specifically, the bill's experiments in actual health insurance markets, need to be made more robust. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)
The urgency of replacing Obamacare cannot be understated. Give competitive federalism a chance; it's what the country's founders had in mind. It's urgent that senators improve this bill, then pass it.

It should be axiomatic among Republicans that Obamacare must be repealed and replaced during the current Congress. The last opportunity to do so appears to be the Graham-Cassidy bill. That being so, it must pass, and it must be improved before it passes. Specifically, the bill's experiments in actual health insurance markets, need to be made more robust.

It is only by passing a repeal and replace bill that Republican politicians can avoid breaking the cardinal promise they have made to voters for the past four election cycles. It was the central rallying cry of John Boehner's successful retaking of the House in 2010. Running Mitt Romney, author of Obamacare's state-level prototype in 2012, proved a Republican mistake that helped save Obama.

Campaigning against Obamacare helped Republicans take the Senate in 2014. Repealing Obamacare was the only policy agreed upon by all 17 GOP presidential candidates in the 2016 campaign.

If Republicans, while in control of government, do not replace Obamacare after promising so many times over, there is no reason for voters to trust another GOP legislative promise.

Ding Dong Maxine Waters I can 'guarantee' Trump colluding with Russia to 'undermine' US

Via Billy

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., said Thursday she can "guarantee" President Trump is secretly and illegally working with Russia.

"How many of you in your organizations have said 'Impeach 45? ... Well, they don't have what it takes, they don't have the laws yet.' Impeachment is about whatever the Congress says it is. There is no law that can dictate impeachment. What the Constitution says is high crimes and misdemeanors and we define that. Bill Clinton got impeached because he lied," Waters told attendees at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C., Thursday morning.
