In an interview yesterday with Dan Cofall, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, accused President Obama of using immigration and the Ferguson case to provoke violence. When Cofall asked Gohmert about Sen. Tom Coburn’s claim that Obama’s executive action deferring the deportation of some immigrants could result in violence, Gohmert replied that Obama’s critics would never resort to violence since only liberals do that. “Civil disobedience comes from the left,” he said. “They’re the ones that loot and shoot up and shoot up stores and do all kinds of things...

Rep. Louie Gohmert and other conservatives are pushing for a short-term continuing resolution that could potentially lead to a standoff with President Obama over his executive action on immigration. The Texas Republican and his allies are threatening to use the budget process after that short-term spending bill runs out to threaten a government shutdown by insisting that the government “totally defund the amnesty.” But Gohmert wants to take it even further, suggesting that Congress also go after any golf outings and family trips the president may take. “I think we’ve...

As of today, there is only one person undergoing treatment for Ebola in the United States, and only two people have contracted the disease in the U.S., both of whom are healthcare workers who survived. But the U.S.’s success in fighting the disease at home has not stopped Republican politicians and their allies in the conservative media from turning it into a political issue, warning of an impending massive Ebola outbreak in the U.S. and declaring that when that happens it will be all President Obama’s fault. Here are five of the most common conspiracy theories that conservative... MORE >

In an interview with Newsmax today, Rep. Louie Gohmert said that Texas voters shouldn’t trust state senator and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis…because she has been divorced. When host Ed Berliner asked if Davis “has found enough of the will and enough prayers to get her elected,” Gohmert replied that he thought that “she’s showing the same will she had when she let her husband paid for her to get through law school and then divorced him the day law school was finished and paid for, so she’s got a lot of will and that makes her interesting....

Louie Gohmert: Gays Shouldn't Serve In The Military Because Massages Will Make Them Vulnerable To Terrorism

Rep. Louie Gohmert was an in-studio guest on the "Point Of View" radio program yesterday, where he went off on a bizarre tangent about Ancient Greece in trying to make the case that allowing gays to serve in the military "is not a good idea." The Texas Republican had been railing against the Obama administration's decision to send several thousand members of the U.S. military to Western Africa to assist in the effort to control the Ebola outbreak, saying that it was just the latest example of the administration demonstrating its fundamental disdain for the military....

5 Years After Passage Of Hate Crimes Law, Religious Right's Dire Predictions Still Haven't Come True

Here we go again. If Religious Right activists are to be believed, any day now the government will throw pastors in jail, have people “fined $500 a day” for reading the Bible and “start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians.” These are among the claims that were made this year by conservative politicians and movement leaders, who warn that America is now witnessing a “war on religion.” Similar dire warnings about the federal hate crimes law that was passed five years ago today have proven to be utterly false. The apocalyptic... MORE >
