Louie Gohmert Is Officially Gunning for John Boehner’s Job

Free Republic

It’s official: House Speaker John Boehner has multiple challengers gunning for his job.

Texas Republican Louie Gohmert announced Sunday morning on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” that he would throw his hat into the ring, saying he’s officially a candidate for the speaker gig.

Gohmert’s announcement comes as Boehner’s approval from conservative voters sags.

Gohmert’s office also sent a statement to TheBlaze on the announcement, in which Gohmert said that his bid — or other Republicans’ bids — for the speaker position don’t create a serious risk that Democrats could slip in a victorious candidate.

In TheBlaze’s Saturday poll on who should be the House Speaker, Gohmert snagged 16 percent of the vote, putting him firmly at No. 2 on the seven-person list.

TheBlaze readers’ favorite pick among the options provided: South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy, whose nearly 10,000 votes gave him 70 percent of the poll participants.

French Fined Heavily for Complaining About Islamization

Moonbattery

In high-profile cases, the dhimmi quislings running France will sometimes back down and permit mild criticism of Islamic colonists, as when Christine Tasin (a founder of Riposte Laïque [Secular Response]) and Marine Le Pen (president of the populist National Front party) recently had Islamophobia charges against them dropped. Others are not so lucky:

On June 5, Pierre Cassen and Pascal Hillout, two other members of Riposte Laïque, were sentenced to an extremely heavy fine of 21,200 euros ($26,000) for having written that “street prayers, veils and mosques” were “symbols of occupation and conquest.”

On April 10, author Renaud Camus was fined 4,000 euros ($5,000) for having said in 2010 that Muslim culture was slowly “replacing” French culture.

Three years earlier, in February 2011, writer and political journalist Eric Zemmour was sentenced to a fine of 1,000 euros ($1,250) and a payment of 10,000 euros ($12,500) to various associations and leagues. He had said during a talk show that “the majority of drug dealers in France are black and Arab Muslims.” The judges considered this was an “incitement to racial discrimination.”

Whether it is factually true would be irrelevant to France’s liberal overlords, who appear determined to reduce France to a Third World Islamic country predominantly populated by non-Europeans by the end of the century.

The French Interior Minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, called for street demonstrations against Zemmour. This is the first time in the history of modern France that an Interior Minister has publicly called for street demonstrations against a journalist.

Obama’s style of government by community organized mob rule is catching on.

The results of France’s policy of importing massive numbers of Muslims and then paying them to breed instead of work are what you might expect:

France is also the main European provider of jihadist recruits to the Islamic State. More than 1,000 French citizens are fighting in Syria and Iraq. Two of them have been spotted in a beheading video.

It is doubtful they will return from the Middle East any less determined never to assimilate.

Polls show that French citizens in ever-increasing numbers are concerned about the rising proportion of unintegrated Muslims in the country, the endless expansion of no-go zones, the increasing number of Islamic converts, and the “replacement” of the French people.

But they had better not complain about it, or they will be heavily fined by the same treasonous government that is methodically erasing their nation.

Judicial harassment exacerbates frustration and leads many to believe that the mainstream media and leaders of major traditional parties lie about the facts and conceal the truth.

Why the French would find the current state of affairs more tolerable than the reign of Louis XVI is a mystery.

The creepy long arm of the government reaching deeply into your private business…

Via The Blaze:

U.S. Navy veteran and retired police officer Donald Montgomery is suing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other officials after his firearms were reportedly confiscated by police after he sought treatment for insomnia.

It all started after Montgomery visited his primary care physician on May 6 and complained about trouble sleeping, the Daily Caller reported. He claimed to have been suffering from insomnia since moving from a different state. Montgomery then returned to the hospital again days later for the same problems, except this time he was diagnosed with “Depression; Insomnia” by hospital staff.

On May 23, Montgomery returned to the hospital yet again with the same symptoms. He reportedly stayed at the hospital for 48 hours voluntarily for treatment.
