Secretary Kerry stands for those who support the destruction of Israel. He should not be speaking for this nation. He needs to stand down before he brings judgment against us.
In today’s episode of Life with GOHMERT!, Loveable Louie calls for the poor to have “skin in the game”:
“What if you’re so poor that the only money you have is what the government gives you? I wondered, isn’t that wasting money, you give it and you take it back?” Gohmert pondered. “No that gives you an investment in the country and we need that.”

UPDATE: You can see the entire speech - which probably typifies The Wonderful World of GOHMERT! as much as anything else - below:
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) seemingly tied Christianity to U.S. national security during a bizarre speech on the House floor on Thursday, the Huffington Post reported.
“If you were completely areligious, completely atheistic, but you wanted to have a free country, and you wanted to have it safe and protected, then it would sound like, from historical purposes, that it might be a good thing to encourage those who believe in God to keep doing so,” Gohmert said. “Because when a nation’s leaders honor that God, that nation is protected. It’s only when it turns away that it falls.”
So, I should encourage prayer because the entity that I don’t believe in requires it to keep the nation safe? Correct me if I’m wrong, but not too long after the “Second Great Revival”, America became engaged in the Civil War. Over 620,000 people lost their lives during that, or if scaled to todays population, the equiv. of over 6 MILLION People. I’m glad that we were being watched over, who knows how bad it could have been.
More and more I agree with Heinlein on god.
The most ridiculous concept ever perpetrated by H.Sapiens is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of the Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of his creations, that he can be persuaded by their prayers, and becomes petulant if he does not receive this flattery. Yet this ridiculous notion, without one real shred of evidence to bolster it, has gone on to found one of the oldest, largest and least productive industries in history. [Robert Heinlein]
Senator John McCain swung back at the Earl of GOHMERT! after the latter accused him of supporting Al Qaeda.
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) threw verbal punches at each other Wednesday night and Thursday morning, respectively, in an ongoing tiff between the two lawmakers.
On Wednesday, McCain said Gohmert had “no intelligence” in response to Gohmert’s charge that McCain is an al-Qaeda supporter.
“Sometimes comments like that are made out of malice, but if someone has no intelligence I don’t feel it as being a malicious statement,” McCain said on NBC News. “But yes, there’s polarization here, and there’s a lack of civility.”
