Charles Trey Thomas to become the next Congressman from the 6th Congressional District in Louisiana.

Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) took to the House floor this week to oppose the Obama Administration’s foolish plan to arm and train so-called “moderate” Syrian terrorists to fight against ISIS. In fact, the “moderates” are increasingly working with ISIS in joint operations against the Syrian government. Leaders of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) have also publicly stated that they have no intention of joining Obama’s phantom “broad-based coalition” to fight ISIS.
Despite a promise President Obama made to lawmakers and the American public in a special joint session of Congress on healthcare reform that “under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortion” a new report released by the non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) today documents massive new public funding of abortion in the President’s healthcare law.
Protecting the American people from threats against the nation is the highest priority of the federal government. However, in direct contrast to this goal, the Obama Administration recently approved a final regulation to lift a 30-year prohibition on Libyans coming to the U.S. to attend flight school, to work in aviation maintenance or flight operations, or to study or seek training in nuclear science. Once Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson signs this regulation, it will go into effect unless further action is taken.
It is clear that the Obama/Eric Holder Department of Justice is being operated to protect Obama and his cronies from any punishment for their law-breaking and undermining of the Constitution. This is just the latest example of the collusion that is going on between the DOJ and Democrats to make certain no one in the IRS will be brought to justice for using the IRS to destroy conservative and Christian groups.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was on “The Kelly File” last night to respond to Obama’s speech earlier in the evening on his “strategy” on dealing with Islam. One of Obama’s most glaring lies during the speech was the claim that ISIS (Islamic State) is neither Islamic nor a state – and that no religion condones the killing of innocents.
“…when I asked the FBI for a briefing, they told me yes, there are Minnesotans that are in Syria fighting for the Islamic State. I asked them…if these individuals want to come back to the United States–they have U.S. passports–would they be allowed to do so. I was blown away when the FBI told me they could come back into the United States…as many of them have.”
Frank Gaffney, head of the Center for Security Policy (CSP) has just posted an alarming news story about Mohamed Elibiary, a Muslim who served for five years on the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council.
It is Elibiary who is responsible for the purging of FBI training documents of any materials that might be considered offensive to Muslims.
One common theme that emerged during each of our meetings is the lack of United States leadership and a clear strategy in the Middle East. Whether it be ISIS in Iraq, Hamas in Gaza, the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Boko Haram in Africa, or al-Qaeda throughout the Middle East, Islamic extremists are on the rise. In order to combat these organizations and their horrible practices, we will need the support and help from Middle Eastern nations to present a united front. Each country we visited expressed a willingness to work with the United States, but a clear strategy is lacking.
After Democrat Senator John Walsh dropped out of the Senate campaign over a plagiarism scandal, Montana State Sen. Amanda Curtis decided to enter the race against GING-PAC candidate Congressman Steve Daines. Curtis describes herself as an anarchist and has videoed herself ridiculing gun rights, Christianity, the Bible, and the natural family as the basic unit of society.
