Texas Governor Rick Perry warned a packed DC audience at DC’s Heritage Foundation headquarters Thursday that without swift action, terrorists from groups like the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) will “slip across our un-secure border.” In a speech linking the immigration reform debate to the current crisis in Iraq, Perry claimed there is “a very real possibility” that terrorists have already entered the country by crossing the desert from Mexico.
Perry cited only one anecdote to back up this claim: the recent detention at the border of a Ukrainian national. But she wasn’t a terrorist. She was the wife of a US marine.
Note: IF you don’t have the FACTS, no problem. Just make the shit up!

A Republican congressman warned Americans that President Obama would not be able to adequately protect the nation from the threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) — the terrorist organization that has taken over large parts of Iraq — because the administration’s policy is being guided and influenced by “Muslim brothers.”
Appearing on SiriusXM’s “The Wilkow Majority,” Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) argued, “if you’re Commander-in-Chief you can’t be listening to Muslim brother advise on when it’s time to stop destroying Muslim brothers.”
A Member of Congress accuses the President of treason – inexcusable!

The 2014 Texas Republican Convention takes place this weekend and things were off to an interesting start with this speaker, a Davy Crockett impersonator who called for the VIOLENT OVERTHROW of President Barack Obama and his administration.
Dressed in buckskins and carrying a raccoon skin he called “Buster,” the Crockett impersonator took the stage, calling out, “Good morning Texans! Are you proud? Are you blessed to live in the state of Texas?”
“Crockett” went on to dispense such pearls of down-home wisdom as “Never be a member of a party whose name ends with the word ‘rat.’”
Congressman Blake Farenthold (R- Texas via every fast food restaurant in the state) told veterans about to lose their disability checks due to the
government shutdown, that they would have to make sacrifices.
Because goodness knows that former soldiers receiving disability haven’t already made extreme sacrifices. For this country. To keep it free.
Let us quote the Congressman since this statement cannot be paraphrased
“I feel like my mandate when I was elected was to go reduce the size of government, lower taxes, and increase freedom, and freedom isn’t free, and sometimes you have to make a small sacrifice to move forward with what you’re after,” Farenthold said.
Farenthold, who appears to have not sacrificed anything ever- except the risk of diabetes and heart disease- has been serving in the Congress for all of two years. And yet feels quite comfortable in stopping major parts of the federal government from functioning.
In fact, the corpulent Congressman from Corpus Christi is quite comfortable speaking on behalf of all the American citizens not just the ones in his gerrymandered sinkhole of a district.
He told a reporter that folks are upset about NSA spying and of course, Benghazi, not inre a bunch of newbie elected officials taking the country hostage for 13 days.
Everyone read this and remember. Showboats like Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz were confronted by veterans last Sunday. The former military folks, who came to D.C. to protest memorials being closed, told the Tea Party people they were in fact to blame, saying, “The Republicans closed the government. The Republicans closed the government. You’re an idiot.”
Rep. Farenthold with a staffer on a recent ‘fact finding tour’; and yes, they were ‘finding facts’ at a brothel.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)
Don’t believe for a second, Jeb is the ‘Smart One’.
