On the very same day that resigning House Speaker Paul Ryan delivered his farewell address on the floor of Congress, fellow House Rep. Louie Gohmert revealed what may perhaps be the real reason why his relatively young colleague’s career has come to an unexpected end.
“Just a few weeks before the  election, we were told by Paul, by our elected leaders that, gee, the only way we can keep the House majority is just all of us start running against the president,” Gohmert claimed during an interview on radio station WMAL “The Larry O’Connor Show.”
“Fortunately, we had enough people one after another on the call that pushed back so hard they backed off of that,” he added during his discussion Wednesday with guest host Derek Hunter.
Gohmert disseminated the shocking revelation during a broader discussion on how congressional Republicans seem to always be hijacking President Donald Trump’s agenda.

SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE
After the Democrats’ drubbing in the 2016 election, one would have thought they would be reluctant to oppose Donald Trump on his signature issue of securing America’s southern border.
The public wants it done, and made Mr. Trump president to do that.
In addition, congressional Democrats had previously voted to build the wall.
But now, Democratic legislators are saying they’ll shut down the government, rather than approve funding for this purpose. Perhaps that’s in part because they know the Republican leadership on Capitol Hill doesn’t want to see Mr. Trump’s promise fulfilled, either.
I say, bring it on. Republicans who help Democrats undermine our national security should be primary-ed. And Democrats beholden to government labor unions must be put on notice that federal employees identified as “non-essential” in case of governmental shut-down will be the first fired when budget cuts have to be made.
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it started, but with Speaker John Boehner’s resignation announcement, there’s no doubt the revolution has begun. Perhaps it was the first time you bookmarked the Drudge Report. Or maybe, when at the Drudge Report, you said: “Who is this Breitbart?” Eric Cantor’s primary loss to Dave Brat was certainly a moment when the revolution was stirring and produced tangible results rather than just internet narrative.
Regardless of when the revolution started, it’s clearly underway.
Republicans were elected in historic numbers in 2014 largely due to their promise to reverse Obama’s illegal and unconstitutional amnesty decree. Predictably, this promise was broken immediately. The consequences will be catastrophic not only for the Republican Party, which at this point there is little reason to support, but for America in general in all walks of life — including regarding the indispensable right to bear arms:
Mitch McConnell’s surrender on immigration reform last week could have major consequences for Second Amendment rights.
Deportation amnesty is one of the biggest threats to gun rights because it will add millions of anti-gun voters to the electorate in one fell swoop.
The vast majority of illegal aliens are Hispanics, and Hispanics are one of the most anti-gun demographics in the United States. According to the Pew Research Center, 62% of Hispanics prefer expanding gun control to percent gun rights, compared to 39% of white voters.
Refer to formerly patriotic, now rabidly anti–gun rights California to see how this will play out nationally.
This is among the many reasons our ruling class is displacing the American population with Third Worlders from across the undefended border. The scope of the treason that we are witnessing makes Vidkun Quisling a patriot by comparison.
The Japanese should have tried illegal immigration.
Happy Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
On this national holiday it is important to remember the true history of the US Civil Rights movement in the United States.
On September 28, 1868, a mob of Democrats massacred nearly 300 African-American Republicans in Opelousas, Louisiana. The savagery began when racist Democrats attacked a newspaper editor, a white Republican and schoolteacher for ex-slaves. Several African-Americans rushed to the assistance of their friend, and in response, Democrats went on a “Negro hunt,” killing every African-American (all of whom were Republicans) in the area they could find.

On April 20, 1871 the Republicans passed the anti-Ku Klux Klan Act outlawing Democratic terrorist groups.
The Miller Center reported:
On April 20, 1871, at the urging of President Ulysses Grant, Congress passed the Ku Klux Klan Act. Also known as the third Enforcement Act, the bill was a controversial expansion of federal authority designed to give the federal government additional power to protect voters. The act established penalties in the form of fines and jail time for attempts to deprive citizens of equal protection under the laws and gave the President the authority to use federal troops and suspend the writ of habeas corpus in ensuring that civil rights were upheld.
Founded as a fraternal organization by Confederate veterans in Pulaski, Tennessee, in 1866, the Ku Klux Klan soon became a paramilitary group devoted to the overthrow of Republican governments in the South and the reassertion of white supremacy. Through murder, kidnapping, and violent intimidation, Klansmen sought to secure Democratic victories in elections by attacking black voters and, less frequently, white Republican leaders.
Republicans led the charge on civil rights and women’s rights.
Hat Tip: BB
Richard A. Viguerie is absolutely right when he calls most of the Republican leadership “boneless wonders.” And as Senator Rand Paul correctly labeled the CRomnibus, it is an “abomination of a bill,” and it passed narrowly last night thanks to the betrayal of John Boehner. Boehner lied himself silly as he did exactly what I predicted he would do… he claimed that the Republicans didn’t dare shut down the government and had to pass the CRomnibus to find out what was in it, a la Pelosi. He also claimed the good in the bill, outweighed the bad. So many lies in such a short time. He went all the way with Obama, knowing that the President would kick him out of bed in the morning. Conservatives were Grubered by Boehner and the other Progressive RINOs who wanted everything they passed – they also gave Obama ALL he asked for and oh, so much more.
Every Republican who voted for the CRomnibus must be targeted in primaries and gotten rid of. They are cancerous to the Republic – they are Progressives on the Right side of the aisle and are every bit as much a danger to our country as the Progressive Liberals are. Every one of these Republicans owns this. They weren’t ‘forced’ into anything… they chose this because of money and power. It’s as simple as that.
Family Security Matters
by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD
To paraphrase the sage of Oklahoma, Will Rogers, liberals used to be people who did good with their own money.
To paraphrase former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, liberals learned that, by doing so, they would quickly run out of their own money. Whereas, through government, they could satisfy either their altruism or their guilt and do good on a much larger scale using other people’s money.
Unfortunately for them, implementing “social justice” by legal mandate, that is, transforming a liberal philosophy into liberal politics, forced them to swim in the same dogmatic waters as communists, where liberals had difficulty drawing a distinction between their policies and those endorsed by the communists.
That dilemma was temporarily resolved by the Great Depression, an economic calamity arguably caused by government through the inappropriate action of the Federal Reserve, which resulted in the “throw out the bums” election of liberal Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt, who ironically promoted government as the solution. Knowing they could not be elected to high office by truthfully articulating their aims, American communists joined the Roosevelt Administration in droves.
