Pelosi And The Democrats Set To Remove ‘So Help You God’ From Witness Oath Taken In Front Of Key House Committee

A key committee in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives is moving to eliminate the God reference from the oath administered to witnesses testifying before the panel, as part of a new rules package expected to be approved this week, according to a draft obtained exclusively by Fox News.

With each passing day, 2019 is looking more and more like it will be the year when the Democrats finally embrace full Communism and complete godlessness. From the cheers erupting from New York after Liberal Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo signs a bill creating the most astounding pro-abortion laws in United States history, to becoming the party of anti-semitism, the Democratic Party is imploding under the sheer weight of their own collective atheism.

“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.” Psalm 53:1 (KJV)

There can no longer be any question, America is in the throes of a cataclysmic paradigm shift that is pulling down the very pillars upon which this nation was founded. I can remember back in school where Socialism and Communism were presented as evils to be shunned, and not a goal to strive towards. Yet in our day, America seems hellbent on becoming the very thing that for centuries we believed was wicked and immoral.

Dems to strike ‘so help you God’ from oath taken in front of key House committee, draft shows

FROM FOX NEWS: The draft shows that the House Committee on Natural Resources would ask witnesses to recite only, “Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?”

The rules proposal places the words “so help you God” in red brackets, indicating they are slated to be cut. The words “under penalty of law” are in red text, indicating that Democrats propose to add that phrasing to the oath.

The draft rules also remove the phrase “his or her” throughout the document, changing those two pronouns to “their.” The rules additionally modify all references to the committee’s “Chairman” to instead refer only to the committee’s “Chair.”\

Other rules changes relate to expanding the committee’s authority over natural gas in Alaska and fossil-fuel resources. While many federal oaths include the phrase “so help me God,” some — most notably the presidential oath of office — do not.

The full committee is set to vote on the new language this week, and the rules would take effect immediately if adopted. Other committees were still in the process of finalizing their rules on Monday.

Republican leaders reacted with dismay to the proposed change, and suggested it was a sign of the Democratic Party’s leftward shift.

“It is incredible, but not surprising, that the Democrats would try to remove God from committee proceedings in one of their first acts in the majority,” House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., told Fox News. “They really have become the party of Karl Marx.”

Spokespeople for the Natural Resources Committee did not immediately reply to Fox News’ requests for comment. The committee, which has oversight of national parks, wildlife and energy, is chaired by Democratic Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva.

The proposed change was not the first time Democrats have sought to strike references to God in official party documents. In 2012, the floor of the Democratic National Convention erupted over a sudden move to restore to the platform a reference to God and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — after heavy criticism from Republicans for initially omitting them. Democrats, though, were hardly in agreement over the reversal.

A large and loud group of delegates shouted “no” as the convention chairman (then-Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa) called for the vote. Villaraigosa had to call for the vote three times before ruling that the “ayes” had it. Many in the crowd booed after he determined the language would be restored. READ MORE

As The Republicans In Congress Implode While The Cameras Roll, ‘Toothless Tiger’ Donald Trump Bets What’s Left Of His MAGA Cred On McCarthy

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

House Republicans flailed through a second day of multiple balloting Wednesday, unable to elect Rep. Kevin McCarthy as House speaker or to come up with a new strategy to end the political chaos that has tarnished the start of their new majority.

Gone are the days when an endorsement from Donald Trump all but meant certain victory, what you are watching play out in Congress right now is evidence of that. Not only is his endorsement of Kevin McCarthy not moving the needle in the current House Speaker fight, the very core of Trump’s original MAGA Movement have turned against him. It is literally stunning to watch how fast things are all falling apart for the Republican Party. Trump’s ‘house of sand’ is flowing out to sea right now. But we told you Trump wasn’t coming back, and he’s not.

“And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.” Matthew 7:26,27 (KJB)

Now, the bigger picture we see when we go up to 40,000 feet is much scarier than just Trump and the MAGA Movement crashing and burning. The view from the top shows us an America that has absolutely lost its way, has no plan for the future, and is on the verge of bankruptcy with a National Debt well past $31,000,000,000,000.00 trillion dollars. We’ve been warning you for years that America was under the judgment of God, and as the New World Order continues continues its ‘divide and conquer’ assault, time is just about up. Today McCarthy entertained the idea of a ‘coalition government’ with the Democrats, something that shows you the GOP is out of gas.

McCarthy fails again in bid for speaker, GOP in disarray

FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS: For a fifth time, Republicans tried to vote McCarthy into the top job as the House plunged deeper into disarray. That came moments after the fourth vote showed 20 conservative holdouts still refusing to support him, unchanged from the previous time around and leaving him far short of the 218 votes typically needed to win the gavel.

“Let cooler, more rational heads prevail,” said Rep. Warren Davidson, R-Ohio, a conservative aligned with the far-right Freedom Caucus who nevertheless nominated McCarthy.

Rep. Lauren Boebert, a firm Colorado conservative, nominated Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., the chosen protest candidate of the day— and called for former President Donald Trump, the conservatives’ hero, to tell McCarthy, “`Sir, you do not have the votes and it’s time to withdraw.”

Earlier Wednesday, Trump had done the opposite, urging Republicans to vote for McCarthy. “Close the deal, take the victory, he wrote on his social media site, using all capital letters. “Do not turn a great triumph into a giant & embarrassing defeat.”

Yet the California Republican vowed to keep fighting despite losing in multiple rounds of voting that threw the new majority into tumult a day earlier. Animated private discussions broke out on the chamber floor between McCarthy supporters and detractors searching for an endgame. The House gaveled in at noon, but no other work could be done — swearing in new members, forming committees, tackling legislation, investigating the Biden administration — until the speaker was elected.

“Sure, it looks messy,” said Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Wis., a McCarthy ally who quickly re-nominated him for the job with a rousing speech designed to peel off detractors. But democracy is messy, he said. “The American people are in charge.”

McCarthy himself entered the chamber saying, “We’ll have another vote.”

But the dynamic proved no different from Day One, as Democrats re-upped their leader, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, for speaker, and a right-flank leader from the Freedom Caucus twice offered a challenge to McCarthy — nominating Donalds in another history making moment. Both Jeffries and Donalds are Black.

“This country needs leadership,” said Rep. Chip Roy, the Texas Republican noting the first time in history two Black Americans were nominated for the high office, and lawmakers from both parties rose to applaud.

It was the first time in 100 years that a nominee for House speaker could not take the gavel on the first vote, but McCarthy appeared undeterred. Instead, he vowed to fight to the finish. The disorganized start to the new Congress pointed to difficulties ahead with Republicans now in control of the House.

President Joe Biden, departing the White House for a bipartisan event in Kentucky with Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell, said “the rest of the world is looking” at the scene on the House floor.

“I just think it’s really embarrassing it’s taking so long,” Biden said. “I have no idea” who will prevail. READ MORE

Republican Kevin McCarthy Becomes First House Speaker Candidate To Not Be Elected On First Round In 100 Years Exposing Deep Fractures In The GOP

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy lost the first round of votes for the House Speakership on Tuesday, exposing a deep split in Republican Party.

The Republican Party is a party with deep divisions, engulfed in swirling turmoil as exhibited today with Kevin McCarthy becoming the first person in one hundred years to not win house speaker in the first round of voting. I have been a Republican since 1980, with the first vote I ever cast being for Ronald Reagan, but I am a Maine coon kitten’s whisker away from switching to Independent. The Republican Party in 2022 stinks, talking to you Mitch McConnell, and it’s wound seems grievous and incurable.

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” Psalm 9:17 (KJB)

So you say to me, “Trump is the answer in 2024!”, and I will remind you that Trump never fired Fauci, never pardoned Julian Assange, never built The Wall, and never drained The Swamp. What exactly do you think Trump will do in 2024? Trump was ready to launch the military to vaccinate Americans, or have you forgotten that? No, the Republican Party, like the Democratic Party, are two wings on the same flesh-eating bird of prey, with their members there only to enrich themselves at our expense. Christian, the only way out is up, and while we wait for that, we need to be busy about the Lord’s Business. TO THE FIGHT!!!

Kevin McCarthy LOSES first ballot to become Speaker

UPDATED: House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy fell short in his bid for the Speakership for a second time on Tuesday with 203 votes, 15 votes shy of the 218 needed.

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Nineteen House Republicans backed someone other than McCarthy in the initial vote. It’s the first time in a century that a House Speaker was not elected on the initial round. It became apparent soon after the roll call vote began that McCarthy did not have the votes to outright win the gavel.

Audible gasps could be heard in the cavernous House chamber as more than a dozen Republican lawmakers stood in defiance to the California legislator’s bid.

Proceedings began with GOP Conference Chair Rep. Elise Stefanik nominating McCarthy, as expected, and Democrats’ new No. 3 Pete Aguilar naming the 118th Congress’ new Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries. Then, far-right Rep. Paul Gosar stood to nominate GOP Rep. Andy Biggs – one of the original five Republican lawmakers to lead opposition to McCarthy. Over the course of the vote, however – done in alphabetical order – some members threw wild cards into the mix. Biggs got 10 of the rebel votes, while nine members voted for someone else.

GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert cast her vote for fellow GOP Rep. Jim Jordan, who himself voted for McCarthy and has said he does not want the job. Freshman Republican Rep. Josh Brecheen cast his vote for Indiana Rep. Jim Banks, last year’s Republican Study Committee chairman. Another conservative member, Rep. Andy Harris, voted for Lee Zeldin – who left Congress at the end of last year to unsuccessfully run for governor of New York.

Throwing yet another twist into McCarthy’s would-be ascent, conservative Rep. Chip Roy put his support behind pro-Donald Trump Republican Rep. Byron Donalds.

It had been reported earlier that conservatives would offer up Biggs as a spoiler to McCarthy to prevent him from reaching a majority threshold. Voting is done in rounds until a majority consensus is reached. READ MORE

The House of Representatives is holding a second round of voting after GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy failed to win a majority of votes for Speaker of the House on Tuesday. McCarthy lost 19 Republican votes, falling far short of the 218 needed, and Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries also fell short of a majority, triggering a second round of voting for the first time in about 100 years.

The Disgusting Fawning Over Zelensky At The White House While America’s Own Border Lies In Ruins Is Emblematic Of Our Decline As A Nation

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Right-wing critics have berated Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky for wearing combat gear during a historic visit to the White House and Congress, where he made an impassioned plea for more funding to aid Kyiv’s defense effort.

What does a nation in decline look like? Well, it looks a lot like America on Day 1,011 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve, actually. In America, our borders are wide open with over one million illegals streaming through every year. What’s being done about it? Nothing. America has a rapidly-escalating homeless problem with tent cities and street camps in every major city we have. What are they doing about it? Nothing. America just added a another trillion to our national debt, with no plan to lower it. Yet, in the midst of all that, RINO Mitch McConnell says that the ‘number one thing on the minds of all Republicans is more funding for the war in Ukraine’. Is that a joke, is that something from SNL? Sadly, no it is not.

“And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, The LORD liveth; as they taught my people to swear by Baal; then shall they be built in the midst of my people. But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the LORD.” Jeremiah 12:16,17 (KJB)

America right now is basically using Ukraine to fight a proxy war with Russia that no one voted for, and our leaders seem only too happy to spend what now amounts to nearly 100 billion dollars on ‘aid to Ukraine’. Zelensky showed up last night where a fawning Congress made him a rock star, where he shamelessly grifted for even more money. Congress did not have $5 billion to build a border wall to protect our own country, but they have $100 billion to waste on the Ukraine Russian conflict? This is what you would expect to see in a nation on it’s way down, and out.

Zelensky shows up in sweat pants to beg for more money from Democrats

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Commentator Tucker Carlson led the swipes at Zelensky, using his late night show on Fox News to accuse the Ukrainian leader of dressing like the ‘manager of a strip club demanding money’ amid the United States’ own border woes. Joining the criticism was Donald Trump Jr., son of former president Donald Trump, who called Zelensky a ‘welfare queen’ on Wednesday morning.

In his first foreign visit since Russia invaded his country in February, Zelensky showed up to the White House wearing a casual outfit – including a camouflage colored sweatshirt, similar colored pants and combat boots – in contrast to US president Joe Biden, who was wearing a suit. Zelensky followed up his meeting with Biden with a speech to Congress during which he made a plea for another round of defensive weapons funding.

Wendell Husebo, writer for the conservative news website Breitbart, also chimed in.

‘Zelensky arrives at the White House to demand more support than $45B aid in the omnibus bill,’ tweeted Husebo. ‘For $45B, show some respect and rent a suit.’

Other Breitbart employees also got involved, with its politics editor Emma-Jo Morris writing: ‘Zelensky flies all the way to the US, but still can’t put on a suit.’

The attacks on Zelensky came after a pandemic-era US federal immigration policy – known as Title 42 – expired, allowing an influx of migrants into the country.

The visit also came as US politicians are set to vote on a year-end spending package that includes about $45billion in emergency assistance to Ukraine. The United States has been by far the largest donor country to Ukraine, sending $18.5billion for arms and equipment. Germany, at $2.34billion, is the second largest.

Carlson said: ‘The president of Ukraine arrived at the White House dressed like the manager of a strip club and demanding money and amazingly no one threw him out.’ READ MORE
