CNBC: House censures GOP Rep. Paul Gosar over anime video depicting him killing AOC

The House of Representatives censured GOP Rep. Paul Gosar and stripped him of his committee assignments for posting an anime video that depicted him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and swinging swords at President Joe Biden.

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/11/17/house-to-vote-on-censure-of-gop-rep-paul-gosar-over-aoc-video.html

Only 2 House Republicans voted to censure Paul Gosar over a violent anime video that showed him killing AOC. Another Republican voted present.

Rep. Paul Gosar's Sister Slams Lawmaker's 'Sick Fantasies'

Jennifer Gosar said she was "beyond aghast" at the doctored anime video her brother posted on social media depicting violent acts against Democrats.

Its not the payback that is the problem. Its the horrific video that the congressman put on his twitter account that portrayed him doing something to another congressman. I think last time we remember AOC flying to Texas and raising a lot of money for the people of Texas when they froze and had no energy. While Ted Cruz left Texas to Cancun.

It goes to show Kevin does not have leadership qualities again and again. Even Mark Meadows recently slams Kevin leadership style. (His own party)

TBH - I didnt even know who this guy was before the video. The video was left up for days or weeks. Not a good way to get free publicity.

I hear the talk may possibly be different between the vote and closed doors among Republicans.

I hear the talk behind doors may possibly be different between the vote and closed doors among Republicans regarding this guy.

You really think he cares, Dems posted worse stuff about Trump......He reposted the same video after the censure... and by the way Kevin will be the Speaker of the House by this time next year (If not Trump) heheheheh ;D ;D >:D

Paul Gosar retweets same video aimed at AOC after House censures him – report
Republican congressman retweeted conservative podcaster Elijah Schaffer’s tweet of the violent video

Again not that many people knew about this guy before the video outside Arizona.
His 10 seconds of fame was short lived.

I still dont what this guy has done. Kind of like the OC republican females that are in congress. What have they done?

We all know what Katie Porter has done!  ;)

Ahhh the sweet sweet taste of revenge. The purge will be profound and painful!

Another retirement spells even more trouble for House Democrats


Suozzi is the 18th Democrat in the House planning to retire or run for higher office in 2022. By contrast, Republicans have only 11 members retiring. For context, at this point in the 2020 election cycle, only eight Democrats had called it quits as compared to 20 Republicans.

Those Hispanics...causin' panics!! How can they vote against their own race?  (because maybe race really has little to do with it)

Hispanic voters shift toward Republicans, now split evenly between both parties: poll

Hispanic voters have for the most part been a Democratic Party stronghold, but a new poll finds the demographic is steadily moving to the right amid President Biden’s widespread unpopularity.

A new poll from The Wall Street Journal found that Hispanic voters are now split between Republicans and Democrats on the generic ballot at 37%. A further 22% responded that they were undecided.

“Latinos are more and more becoming swing voters.… They’re a swing vote that we’re going to have to fight for,’’ said John Anzalone, a Democrat and one of the pollsters who contributed to the WSJ survey.

WSJ is owned by Rupert Murdoch News Corp. I dont pay that much attention to that paper.

I remember in college back in the day it used to be well respected.
These days it seems like an arm of Fox News. (It kind of is in away with Rupert Murdoch)

Too late Hill....Smith has sealed your fate!...(I lover her so)...

Hillary Clinton suggests The Squad and progressive Democrats could SINK the party in 2022 midterms because voters want a Congress that can 'get things done'
Hillary Clinton said Democrats needed to think about 'what wins elections'
To hold the House and Senate they will have to win in purple states, she said
Just winning in liberal, blue states will not be enough, she added
Her comments will be seen as criticism of her party's progressive wing

Non-Smithed politicians recognize that if they nuke the filibuster now just to pass one bill they will slit their own throats when they lose the majorities in both houses later this year...they don't want to join the suicide squad for when they have to defend the minority vote...makes sense and smart. ;D ;D >:D

Sinema doubles down on filibuster support, dealing likely fatal blow to Dems' election bills
Sinema is a longtime supporter of the filibuster

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema said Thursday that she will not vote to weaken the Senate's 60-vote filibuster threshold, bucking her party leaders yet again and dealing a major blow to Democrats' election reform effort.

The comments, which match Sinema's long-held stance on the filibuster, are effectively the final nail in the coffin of Democrats' longshot effort to pass two elections bills over unified Senate GOP opposition.

"There's no need for me to restate my longstanding support for the 60-vote threshold to pass legislation. There's no need for me to restate its role in protecting our country from wild reversals of federal policy," Sinema, D-Ariz., said. "This week's harried discussions about Senate rules are but a poor substitute for what I believe could have and should have been a thoughtful public debate at any time over the past year."

You gotta love the hypocrisy of politics...it is so consistent...

Senate Democrats Immediately Use ‘Racist’ Filibuster After Their Radical Agenda is Defeated


But the corpse of filibuster “reform” was not even warm when the Democrats were wielding the instrument to block a sanction against a Russian pipeline — the narrative about the long-forgotten “Russia hoax” be damned.

“Senate Democrats garnered enough votes Thursday to block a bipartisan bill reimposing sanctions on the Russian pipeline Nord Stream 2 from being sent to the House for consideration,’ the Daily Caller’s Thomas Catenacci reported.

“While 55 senators voted in favor of the bill, it failed to surpass the 60-vote threshold required to pass,” the report continued. “The legislation, the Protecting Europe’s Energy Security Implementation Act, received a floor vote after its sponsor, Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, agreed to release several administration nominations he had blocked over the issue.”

“Thanks to President Biden’s catastrophic surrender and waiving of the mandatory sanctions passed by Congress, (Russian President Vladimir Putin) sees Nord Stream 2 as an alternate route to get his gas to Europe that Ukraine cannot touch,” Cruz said on the Senate floor prior to the vote.

“My point is simpler: The filibuster cannot be an accursed vestige of slavery and Jim Crow when Republicans use it and a perfectly fine (even noble) tool of fairness and democracy when Democrats use it,” Goldberg writes.

“But that’s how the argument works,” the author added. “In his press conference on Thursday, President Joe Biden said he agrees with his former boss Barack Obama that the filibuster is “a relic of the Jim Crow era.”

The Democratic Party used that “relic of the Jim Crow era” the moment it thought it served its purpose. It’s like the party only stands for one thing: Increasing its own power.
