Gohmert: No Town Hall Because Some Loony Lefty Might “2nd Amendment Solution” Him

Louie GohmertMy favo-right Texass Tea Potty filbert is back in the news. The one, the only, (thank goodness) “Screwy” Louie Gohmert! (I have a huge weakness for silly and in that category, “Screwy” Louie leads the league!)

As you may have noticed, this has NOT been a good week for Republican regressives, town hall wise. Those that have held them, faced angry crowds obsessed with the probable upcoming loss of their health insurance.

One explanation for this is that a lot of their constituents found out that the “Obamacare” that they hated was actually the “Affordable Care Act,” that they loved.

Another explanation, one much favored by these self-same regressive Republicans, is that it was all organized and paid for by elite lefties like George Soros and his ilk. (If so, why wasn’t I informed of this cushy gig?)

Other “representatives of the people” took the Yellow Road to Chickenville and refused to hold town halls or even meet with their constituents. Care to guess which group, Screwy Louie  joined?

Tuesday, (2/21/17) a group in Screwy’s district, called “Indivisible of Smith County” called for a town hall meeting. Sadly, their man(?) in congress declined. However, you do have to give him half a point for coming up with the sorriest excuse so far.

Unfortunately, at this time there are groups from the more violent strains of the leftist ideology, some even being paid, who are preying on public town halls to wreak havoc and threaten public safety. Threats are nothing new to me and I have gotten my share as a felony judge. However, the House Sergeant at Arms advised us after former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords was shot at a public appearance, that civilian attendees at Congressional public events stand the most chance of being harmed or killed—just as happened there.

Point of clarification: Jared Lee Loughner, the Gabby Giffords shooter, was NOT an adherent of “leftist ideology!” He was a right-wing filbert with severe mental problems. (Btw, Screwy Louie just voted to give the mentally questionable greater access to firearms.)

As a back-up reason for avoiding the possible unpleasantry, he stated,

In the same amount of time it takes to have a town hall meeting, which usually has between 30 and 100 attendees in east Texas, I can communicate with thousands of my constituent bosses through a telephone town hall meeting.

The nice thing about telephone town halls is that they are easier to control and there’s none of those unpleasant “YouTube Moments.”

He finished his declaration of avoidance by saying,

Though I am saddened if you are upset with my positions, they do appear to reflect a majority of east Texans’ views.

Since he is desperately trying to avoid dialogue with his constituents, I’m not quite sure how he would know that.

Screwy Louie Gohmert: The Terrorists Are Already Here

Screwy Louie’s back! (Actually, he never went away, but I’ve been trying my best to ignore him.)

Louie “Goober” Gomert, the former Chief Justice on Texas’s 12th Court of Appeals and multi-time winner of the San Antonio Current’s “Bonehead Quote of the Week” award, stopped by Breitbart for a little refugee bashing. He was interviewed on Breitbart News Daily by Stephen Bannon, Breitbart’s Executive Chairman.

When the subject of the 8 Syrians, 5 Pakistanis and an Afghani supposedly arrested while trying to sneak in the U.S. came up, Louie chimed in that he was glad,

people are waking up across the country to what’s been going on for quite some time.

Before we proceed, the FBI released this statement about the 5 Pakistanis and the Afghani that were apprehended crossing the border:

U.S. Border Patrol agents in Sonoita, Arizona, apprehended five Pakistani nationals and one Afghan national Monday. Agents also arrested two smugglers accompanying the group. As a standard procedure, agents processed the six individuals and checked their identities against numerous law enforcement and national security related databases. Records checks revealed no derogatory information about the individuals. The individuals are currently in federal custody.

They were trying to sneak in, however that in no way proves they are terrorists. We apprehend illegal immigrants daily. These just happened to be committing the crime of being Muslims.

As for the (gasp!) Syrians? Sorry, but they weren’t even trying to sneak in. Here’s the story on that: The two sets of parents and four children “presented themselves at the port of entry in Laredo” and told agents from Customs and Border Protection they wanted to enter the country. (Somehow, that doesn’t quite sound like the modus operandi of terrorists.)

Back to Goober.
They’re here, they’re here, there is no question, they’re here, that’s been confirmed over and over but it’s got to stop, it’s got to stop.

 Earth to idiot: As Chuck Todd pointed out on yesterday’s (11/22/15) Meet the Press,

There’s been nearly 785,000 refugees who have been admitted to the United States since 9/11. Only about a dozen — roughly one one thousandths of 1 percent — have been arrested or removed from the U.S. due to terrorism concerns. None of those folks removed were Syrian, by the way.

For someone who fancies himself an expert on the subject, you’d think Goober would know that. And, if he does know that, then he’s just flat-ass lying!

Goober rambled on,

This president wanted to fundamentally transform America and he’s been doing it. Unfortunately, he’s been doing it by looking the other way at the border.

(So, I guess all those Border Patrol Agents strung out along the border are just trying to improve their tans.)
Goober went on to say that the FBI Director consistently says there’s no guaranteed way to know who any incoming Syrian refugees “really” are, so it’s imperative to defund the Syrian refugee program completely.
Once again, Earth to idiot: here’s what it really takes for a refugee to be allowed admittance. It’ a process that can take up to a couple of years. Particularly notice steps 3,4&5.wh_blog_refugee_workflow_1120bBeing the fair and balanced person that I am, I will have to somewhat agree with the statement that terrorists are already here. Louie, however, neglects to mention that for the last two decades they are predominantly, white, right-wing fake “Christians.11252248_498547676997557_5075398934958670050_n
