John Robert Lewis is a treasonous U.S. Congressman for Georgia’s 5th congressional district.

The seventy-six-year-old Congressman John Lewis once did something so heroic, so noble, that it helped to change the course of a nation for the better. The Georgia Democrat was beaten up savagely by white Southern racists in 1965, and everyone appreciates very much his personal sacrifice to advance civil rights.

Like the civil rights movement he served, he has become corrupt and destructive. He is a hateful old man who lies about his political adversaries and spews ugliness.

At what point does this man, who has been dining out on his good deeds for more than a half-century, have to account for the truly awful, anti-American things he has done?

John Lewis has spent decades trying to undermine America and siding with its enemies.

In the 1960s and ’70s, he worked with members of the Socialist Workers Party and a Communist Party USA (CPUSA) front group called the National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression.

In 1989, the Sandinista-led Communist government of Nicaragua renounced a ceasefire agreement with the U.S.-backed Contra rebels, the House of Representatives voted 379 to 29 for a resolution deploring the Nicaraguan action. Lewis was one of the 29 Democrats who voted nay.

In 1989, he was a founding member of the Institute for Southern Studies, a North Carolina-based spinoff of the seditious Marxist think-tank known as the Institute for Policy Studies.

In 2003, he wrote an op-ed for the CPUSA paper People’s Weekly World, titled “An Open letter to my Colleagues in Congress: Remembering the Legacy of Martin Luther King.” In 2015, Massachusetts CPUSA leader Gary Dotterman called Lewis “my hero, my comrade, my inspiration and my friend.”

In 2007, he was an honored guest at the national conference of the Democratic Socialists of America, a Marxist group. He provided an introduction to Bernie Sanders.

In 2009, when the House voted 345 to 75 to defund the criminal, corrupt Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), Lewis voted to continue feeding taxpayer funds to the now defunct group.

Lewis supports amnesty for illegal aliens and opposes securing the border. In 2011, he told a rally, “We all live in the same house[.] … If any one of us is illegal, then we all are illegal. There is no illegal human being.”

In 2014, after thousands of mostly unaccompanied Central American minors crossed the southern border illegally, Lewis cheered them on. “We are all connected. We can’t just build a wall or a fence and say no more. This is America. Our doors are open.”

Republicans who don’t agree with Lewis are routinely smeared as black-hating racists.

In 2008, Lewis accused presidential running mates John McCain and Sarah Palin of “sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse.” For good measure, he threw in a reference to pro-segregation Alabama Gov. George Wallace (a Democrat), implying that McCain and Palin were, like Wallace, creating:

… the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who were simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights. Because of this atmosphere of hate, four little girls were killed on [a] Sunday morning when a church was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama.

In 2010, Lewis and other black Democrat lawmakers falsely claimed that conservative Tea Party activists shouted the “N-word” at them at an anti-Obamacare protest on the steps of Capitol Hill. “It surprised me that people are so mean and we can’t engage in a civil dialogue and debate,” he said at the time.

At the Democratic National Convention in 2012, Lewis accused Republicans of trying to restore Jim Crow-like segregation in the country.

In January 2016, he hurled the George Wallace smear at Donald Trump.

This is not an exhaustive list.

His socialist solutions and anti-white vitriol hardly make him a hero unless chaining “his people” to poor schools, fatherless homes, and generations of government dependency is heroic.

Put it all together, and you have a traitor by the name of John Robert Lewis.

Theodore Scott “Ted” Yoho is a patriotic United States Representative for Florida’s 3rd congressional district.

As of April 9, 2015, Ted Yoho of the U.S. House of Representatives has made a move that could set off impeachment proceedings against Barack Obama.

Representative Ted Yoho is preparing to introduce a resolution setting forth the House’s definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” drawing an unmistakable line in the sand that would directly challenge Obama’s actions.

This is the single most significant action taken by a Republican towards impeachment to date.

The resolution introduces 11 different specific actions that fit the Constitution’s standard of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” and several of them apply directly to Obama.

For example, the resolution lists “failing to take care that the laws be faithfully executed through signing statements or systematic policies of non-enforcement” and “substituting executive agreements for treaties” as two of eleven potential high crimes and misdemeanors the House would be declaring “impeachable,” according to Breitbart.

It further adds the use of military force without congressional authorization, the use of funds in defiance of congressional appropriations, and the defiance of congressional subpoenas during oversight investigations are all impeachable offenses.

Sound familiar?

Obama’s refusal to enforce America’s immigration laws, his threat of bypassing Congress on Iran, his illegal war in Libya, and his consistent defiance of congressional investigations into executive branch scandals like the IRS, Fast and Furious, and Benghazi all fit squarely within Yoho’s 11 criteria for a “high crime.”

Yoho said that the most recurring argument against impeachment by experts was that Obama’s actions are similar to actions of previous presidents. This, he says, is why the resolution is a necessary first-step to impeachment. Once Congress has defined its criteria for “impeachable” offenses, the “Bush did it, too” argument is immediately destroyed.

This resolution was crafted with the assistance of legal experts like Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano and civil liberties attorney Bruce Fein.

Yoho added that he expects that the resolution will cause a liberal “firestorm” and will draw the ire of the race baiters, who will inevitably claim that the only reason the GOP wants to impeach Obama is because he’s black.

But Yoho won’t back down, declaring, “This is strictly about the rule of law.”

He noted that executive amnesty was the final straw. It was a “blatant, in-your-face ‘I’m above the law and I’m going to do what I want. I’m a dictator, I’m a king’” act, Yoho said.

This brave congressman should be commended for his efforts to fulfill his oath to defend the Constitution. Now, his colleagues who claim to love liberty and represent the interests of Americans need to step up to the plate and give this effort their full support.


Alcee Lamar Hastings

Alcee Lamar Hastings is a traitor.

Alcee Lamar Hastings is a treasonous United States Representative for Florida’s 20th congressional district.

Alcee Hastings was a federal judge from 1979 until he was impeached for bribery and perjury in 1988. He was convicted by the U.S. Senate and removed from his position in 1989, making him one of just eight federal officials in U.S. history to be impeached and removed from office.

Then Alcee Hastings ran for the political office of the United States Congress, and was first elected in 1992. This was followed with him being reelected again in 1994, 1996, 1998, and so forth through 2014.


Additional Information

In the summer of 2014, Congressman Alcee Hastings co-sponsored the measure formally known as H.R. 5344, the “Responsible Body Armor Possession Act.” It would prohibit the purchase, ownership or possession of enhanced body armor by civilians. The bill would have provided exceptions for those whose purchase or possession of body armor is authorized by the federal government or state governments, or the political subdivision of a state.

The legislation also specifies that violations would be punishable by an unspecified (and therefore, unlimited) fine, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both.

Among the items the legislation would prohibit are not only the familiar Kevlar vests, but also a “helmet or shield, the ballistic resistance of which meets or exceeds the ballistic performance of Type III armor.” (Type III armor, by definition, protects against bullets traveling at approximately 2,780 feet per second.)

Even if the measure would pass — and it’s not likely, given the GOP majorities in the House and Senate — body armor is already currently regulated by the federal government.

Under 18 U.S. Code, Section 931, it is unlawful for a person to purchase, own, or possess body armor, if that person has been convicted of a felony, i.e., an offense under state law that would constitute a crime of violence. An exception is made if the ‘defendant’ (notice that a convicted felon possessing body armor is already considered to be a ‘defendant,’ even if they have committed no further crimes) obtained prior written certification from his or her employer that the defendant’s purchase, use, or possession of body armor was necessary for the safe performance of lawful business activity.

Violators of the law could be sentenced to 10 years in prison.

It should be noted, the federal measure to ban body armor comes at a time when federal, state and local law enforcement is becoming more and more militarized. In turn, it’s not surprising the very same police who have been getting much of this armor are very much in favor of making sure no one else gets it.

Again, the measure has so far been given zero consideration in the GOP-controlled House, and most assuredly there would be a coalition of concerned citizens’ organizations that would lobby against its passage. But it is telling that treasonous politicians like Alcee Hastings want to make it more difficult for American citizens to protect themselves.


Steven J. “Steve” Israel

Steven J. Steve Israel is a traitor.

Steven J. “Steve” Israel is a traitor.

Steven J. “Steve” Israel is a treasonous United States Representative for New York’s 3rd congressional district.

As of March 2015, Rep. Steve Israel is attempting to push a new congressional bill called the “Modernize Law Enforcement Protection Act.”

The bill is nothing more or less than an attempt to ban all centerfire and some rimfire rifle ammunition.

Let’s look at the United States Congressman’s press release:

    After the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) caved to the gun lobby and delayed a proposal to ban “green tip” ammunition, Congressman Steve Israel (NY-03) called on ATF to reevaluate the decision and immediately ban 5.56 mm M855 green tip ammunition, commonly referred to as “armor-piercing” or “cop-killer” bullets.

M855 ammunition is not “commonly referred to” as armor-piercing in any context. M855 is not considered armor-piercing by the United States military. M995 ammunition is the armor-piercing 5.56 round used by our armed forces; all real armor-piercing small arms ammunition in the military is color-coded with a black tip, not a green tip.

Rep. Steve Israel and his allies are likewise blatantly lying when they claim that M855 is “commonly referred to” as a “cop killer” round. M855 has never been linked to even one instance of a police officer being shot through his protective vest with an AR-15 pistol in the history of the United States.

To the best we can determine, the attempt to label M855 ammunition as “cop killer” ammunition is a plot progressive politicians and journalists that is just days old.

    Additionally, Steve Israel announced the Modernize Law Enforcement Protection Act that would extend the definition of armor-piercing ammunition to include all bullets that can pierce body armor and be used in handguns.

You will note that this blatant assault on the Second Amendment isn’t limited to ammunition chambered by semi-automatic firearms, but ANY bullet that can be chambered in any handgun, which includes single-shot handguns. As single-shot handguns have been chambered in virtually every rifle caliber, and all centerfire and some rimfire rifle bullets can pierce Level II body armor designed only to stop handgun bullets, then this must be recognized as an attempt to ban all rifle ammunition, in every configuration, in every caliber.

Steve Israel is furious that ATF is backing off of an unlawful plot to attempt to ban incredibly common training ammunition that is NOT armor-piercing under definition provided in the Law Enforcement Protection Act of 1986.

Oddly, Steve Israel forgets to mention that the world’s largest law enforcement organization, the Fraternal Order of Police, has loudly and publicly stated that M855 ammunition simply is not a threat to law enforcement officers. Why let facts get in the way of tyranny?

    “This legislation is an important step to protect law enforcement from ammunition that may penetrate body armor. Technology often outpaces legislation and the continuing review of new products by the Attorney General’s office will protect from future loopholes in the law,” said Nassau County Acting Commissioner of Police Thomas C Krumpter.

Like most police brass in New York, Krumpter was appointed to his position by Democrat politicians. Do you think he will convert “acting commissioner” to “commissioner” if he disagrees with the corrupt Democrat power structure in New York? Of course not.

    On Tuesday, March 10, 2015 the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives decided to delay its proposal to update its framework for evaluating armor-piercing ammunition under the Law Enforcement Officers Protection Act (LEOPA) of 1986. This would leave dangerous ammunition on the streets.

By “dangerous ammunition,” Steve Israel would seem to mean “all ammunition.” Once again, M855 is a common training round, and has been relegated to a training role because it isn’t effective as an anti-personnel round. It causes less damage than any other 5.56 bullet that we are aware of, a fact born out in formal and informal ballistics tests, and more than 2 decades of combat use. Special Operations forces, the Army, and the Marines have all relegated M855 to a training role. Law enforcement and other law-abiding gun owners use it in that same way.

    Specifically, the Modernize Law Enforcement Protection Act introduced with Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA), would require the Attorney General to modify the definition of armor-piercing ammunition to conform to the performance of the bullet. Current law limits the definition for armor-piercing ammunition as bullets or bullet cores used in handguns which are made from one or a combination of certain metals. It would also require the Attorney General to establish testing criteria to assess a bullet’s lethality against the minimum standards of body armor worn by law enforcement personnel.

It’s curious that Rep. Steve Israel refuses to define those “minimum standards.” That is perhaps because Level I vests are designed to stop only shell fragments and anemic handgun and standard .22LR rimfire rounds. Any modern defensive pistol bullet in 9mm, 40 S&W, and .45ACP will blow through a Level I vest.

Perhaps Steven Israel wants to ban all handgun ammunition as well?

    This new legislation makes necessary updates to previous common-sense gun safety protections for law enforcement. In 1986, the Law Enforcement Officers Protection Act (LEOPA) was signed into law by President Ronald Reagan to ban armor piercing bullets for handguns but not for hunting rifles. Because of significant developments in bullet propellants, coatings and materials, such as Teflon, the original Law Enforcement Protection Act of 1986 is now outdated.

For a sitting Congressman, Rep. Steven Israel plays the role of a village simpleton rather convincingly. Teflon (polytetrafluoroethylene) does not now, nor has it ever, made bullets “armor-piecing.” It is simply a coating designed to reduce barrel wear. This idiotic claim has been debunked time and again.

    As a result, the marketplace has been flooded by growing volumes of ammunition that are fully capable of piercing body armor while skirting the definition of the 1986 ban.

This is simply a meaningless, fact-free statement, devoid of truth, reason, or logic.

    Before 2011, few manufacturers sought exemptions and the ATF only granted two, including for “green tip” 5.56 mm bullets because they were largely used for hunting.

Again, “green tips” are largely used for training. They are rarely used for hunting, but when they are they are sued for small game and varmints, as they lack the terminal performance against anything much larger than 40 lbs.

    “Green tip” ammunition can now be used in some types of handguns, and is capable of penetrating a police officer’s body armor or bullet-proof vest when fired.

We’ve addressed this numerous times, and have specifically noted that law enforcement doesn’t find M855 to be a threat.

Rep. Steve Israel and his anti-gun progressive Democrat allies are attempting to manufacture an excuse to ban all rifle ammunition, thoroughly gutting the Second Amendment.

As such, isn’t it time someone asked this traitor why?


Michael J. “Mike” Rogers

Michael J. "Mike" Rogers a Republican Congressman is a traitor.

Michael J. “Mike” Rogers is a traitor.

Michael J. “Mike” Rogers, a Republican Congressman from Michigan, is a traitor and outright liar. One of many examples of this is his claim the NSA is not listening to phone calls.

On Sunday’s (June 16, 2013) “State of the Union” on CNN, Mike Rogers as head of the House Intelligence Committee, insisted that although there have been allegations made to contrary, the National Security Agency isn’t listening in on Americans’ personal communications.

“I can’t tell you how strong we need to make this clear,” Rogers said. “The NSA is not listening to Americans’ phone calls, and it is not monitoring their emails. If it did, it’s illegal. It’s breaking the law.”

Obviously in Mr. Rogers neighborhood, the truth means the opposite. It’s already been revealed that Obama’s NSA has already admitted to listening in on private phone calls of Americans with absolutely no connection to cases being investigated by the NSA. The NSA also probably monitors text and e-mail messages too. But NeoCon liar Mike Rogers lied to bloated Candy Crowley that the NSA doesn’t listen to private conversations.

“I can’t tell you how strong we need to make this clear,” Rogers said. “The NSA is not listening to Americans’ phone calls, and it is not monitoring their emails. If it did, it’s illegal. It’s breaking the law.”

Host Candy Crowley asked Rogers if the intelligence agency still might be recording calls but not listening to them. Rogers replied that this was occurring only in certain circumstances.

“I could go get a warrant on a criminal case, yes, absolutely,” Rogers said. “But that’s very, very different. And I think they think that there’s this mass surveillance of what you’re saying on your phone call and what you’re typing in your emails. That is just not happening. And it’s important, I think, for people to understand because there’s all this misinformation about what these programs are.”

“That’s why I hope coming out and talking about how they’ve disrupted plots in this very narrow, very tight program will show Americans, hey, listen, they protected our privacy,” he continued. “They followed the rule. They have a court order. I mean, they’re doing this right, and it is protecting the United States from terrorist attacks being plotted from overseas. This is an important program to continue.”

Over the past few years, we’ve found that Rep. Mike Rogers has an incredible knack for spewing pure bullshit in defense of whatever he’s supporting, rarely even bothering to make sure his statements are internally consistent. Still, his statements on Meet the Press this weekend take that nonsense to a new high. Rogers goes off on Snowden — who he has already declared “is a traitor” — arguing in favor of the “theft of government property” charges against Snowden by making the following statement:

    “He has taken information that does not belong to him — it belongs to the people of the United States.”

Right. This information that “belongs to the people of the United States,” which has been totally hidden from us, was actually finally given to the people of the United States — to whom Rogers admits it belongs — by Snowden. And, for that, he’s a traitor? How, exactly, does that work? By Rogers’ own argument, the information, before Snowden leaked it, was improperly withheld, thanks to people like Rep. Mike Rogers, from the people who own it. Thus, by Rogers’ own logic, isn’t it actually Mike Rogers who is the traitor in that he withheld crucial information that “belongs to the people of the United States”?

Of course, Rogers didn’t stop there. No, no. He continued with his internally inconsistent, and blatantly ridiculous argument by saying that (1) terrorists now know what we’re up to and are changing what they do, and (2) so little information has been revealed that everyone thinks they know what’s happening, but don’t. That makes no sense. If (1) is true, it suggests that the actual details of the program have been revealed and thus wrongdoers now know our methods. But, immediately, he changes course and says that no one really knows what’s going on — in which case he shouldn’t be concerned about terrorists changing what they do, because it shouldn’t stop the successful programs that no one knows about.

    We have seen that bad guys overseas — terrorists who are committing and plotting attacks on the United States and our allies — have changed the way they operate. We’ve already seen that. To say that’s not harmful to the national security of the United States, or our safety, is just dead wrong…

    [....] This is the problem with having a thousand-piece puzzle, taking three or four pieces, and deciding that you’re now an expert on what that picture looks like. You’re gonna get it wrong. They’re getting it wrong and it’s dangerous.

So, let me get this straight. The revealed information means that reporters only see a few pieces of the puzzle so they’re getting the story “dead wrong.” But… the terrorists, who are reading these stories, are somehow, magically, getting the full picture (the one the reporters are getting dead wrong) and miraculously changing how they act to now avoid NSA surveillance dragnets? How’s that work? Answer: it doesn’t. Rogers is spewing bullshit.

We don’t ask for much from our elected officials, but is it really too much to ask that they make statements that are internally consistent within the brief block of time they open their mouths to yap about some subject on which they’re supposedly “in charge”?
