    A new coronavirus oversight panel assembled by House Democrats is being dismissed as the same old attempt to get President Trump, following the failure of impeachment or the Trump-Russia investigation to end his presidency. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently appointed a select committee on the coronavirus, to be chaired by Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, a key ally of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. The membership was stacked with early advocates of impeaching Trump, including C... Read more

    WASHINGTON (KETK) – The U.S. tax filing deadline will be extended three months to July 15, according to Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin. Earlier in the week, Mnuchin and President Trump had mentioned during a press conference in the video above that the deadline could be moved for those that owed the IRS money on their 2019 tax returns. This announcement appears to extend that initial idea to all tax return filers in the country. Read more

Louie Gohmert (R-TX) turned the Democrats’ articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on their heads Wednesday evening, declaring: “The abuses, the obstruction of Congress, have come from Congress.” Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment on Tuesday morning. They did not, as they had suggested they would, offer articles alleging bribery and obstruction of justice. Rather, they accused the president of “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress.” Gohmert turned those a... Read more

  • GOHMERT: The Media Turns Fake Whistleblowers Into Heroes, While Real Ones Get Punished And Ignored

    With all the talk of whistleblowers in the media lately, it’s an opportune time to take a look at what it actually means to “blow the whistle” from within the federal government. The Obama administration dealt with leakers quite harshly, so they were able to control what got out about the numerous scandals. In fact, the Obama administration prosecuted more leakers under the Espionage Act for leaking than all other administrations put together. By contrast, today leakers of fourth-hand hearsay in...

  • Exclusive — Gohmert on Impeachment: A ‘Lawless Coup Attempt'
    Posted in In The News on October 3, 2019 | Preview rr

    There is a struggle going on in Washington, DC, which threatens to bring about the destruction of our American experiment in self-governance. Not bound to a party affiliation, it is born of the notion the globalist elites of the world know better how to run the lives of the average American citizen than we do ourselves. These elites want to destroy the very idea of a government of, for and by the People and are willing to continue in the light of day their lawless coup attempt against a duly ele... Read more
