    Amen Con. Gowdy.

  • 12grace

    Trey Gowdy is a brilliant orator and patriot.

  • PJRodman

    Awesome. What an emotional day. Levin is going to be epic tonight…if he hasn’t combusted spontaneously already.

    • nibblesyble

      lol, I was thinking the same thing

  • stage9

    So, let’s see here. Let’s tally up.

    1) Immigration law in AZ….Supreme Court guts it and makes it of no effect.
    2) On the Stolen Valor Act making it a crime to lie about being awarded a medal for military valor….Supreme Court strikes it down.
    3) ObamaCare the single greatest threat against the Constitution in our lifetime…Supreme Court upholds it.

    Let’s see if spineless politicians can go 4 for 4 and see Holder acquitted of contempt charges.

    • PAWatcher

      IMO the tally issss……. we’re ahead stage9.
      1) SCOTUS let stand the right to ask for proof of being in US- an AZ STATE law. The other parts of the AZ law were already federal law.
      2) The military should deal with impersonators of valor, like impersonating an officer. Like the military should have dealt with gays in the military. Washington has gotten too BIG for it’s britches, every aspect of our lives should not be decided by them.
      3) The SCOTUS found the act of obamacare was not under the commerce clause- that’s what the lawyers fighting against the act claimed to be unconstitutional. The justices found it to be a TAX, the largest tax in world history, passed by a democrat majority congress, signed by a democrat president. Congress can get rid of the act, TAX. Brings to mind tea party 1773, taxation without representation.
      If the house finds in favor of Holder, maybe time for a civil trial. Get it out of political hands, try it as a crime- lives were lost (does executive order exist in the criminal courts?), gotta be some lawyers looking to make a name for themselves.
      I know it made me want to smack the smile off obama’s smug face, but, justice will prevail with God’s help.

      • Patriot077

        As I recall, Mark Levin recommended that Issa file a civil suit. Scoop posted Levin’s article on Executive Privilege and his advice to Issa was contained in that …

    • With the cowards we have in there now, men like Mr. Gowdy the exception, I don’t expect much out of them. They are afraid of the furor. Pray to God that justice is done. Psalm 103 says that God works righteousness and justice for the oppressed, I have to believe the Word of God, that we will see justice in this and other matters like the traitor we have for president.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    “…the politics be damned.” I agree with Rep. Gowdy, but ya gotta believe that politics is going to be a big part of the vote. It would be wonderful if politics weren’t involved, but in Congress politics is everything. We shall see at the end of the day.

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      17 Dumbocrats crossed the aisle. One would’ve been good enough for me to call it bipartisan; 17 was epic.

  • Dukehoopsfan

    Every time I hear Rep. Gowdy speak I am impressed. I always think of two things.

    1 – He is in possession (not many in politics are) of the courage of his convictions.

    2 – How he looks and sounds when compared to the likes of pelosi, jackson-lee, waters, frank, and wasserman-schultz.

    I cannot believe the left actually trots these clowns out in public.

    • Rightstuff1

      I am a staunch admirer of this man. He embodies truth and integrity.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Trey is awesome! Love. This. Guy!

    Make him Speaker of the House and watch the world change for the better.

    • There you go!! He would even be a way better president than we have now! November is coming and we have to get rid of the cowards and vote in REAL patriots this time! If we make it to November…

      • Sober_Thinking


  • That is the spirit.

  • HarrietHT2

    It occurs to me that the only thing that keeps “America” alive is the force of the conviction of the RIGHTNESS of America manifested in the words and actions of its people. Words on paper, the DoI, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, have no life of their own apart from those who passionately adhere to them and proclaim them in the face of every evil assault against themselves and the documents — our charters of civilization. We must pray that God would raise up men such as this, such as Trey Gowdy proves himself to be. We must pray that God would grant us wise and just leaders, men of courage and conviction and a knowledge of what is right who with passionate intensity eschew all that is merely expedient.

    • HarrietHT2, we now live in a time when school age children are not taught American History and are not taught how to think and reason. Our schools now instruct them WHAT to think. It’s no surprise that so many of our kids look to Socialism and Communism as a viable alternative to the republic which has served us well for over two hundred years.

      And those members who staged the walkout during the vote to determine the truth of Fast and Furious are always the ones who find the truth to be inconvenient. Most seek the truth while others scurry away when the truth threatens to harm the agenda they are promoting. They are a despicable lot, but no more so than the voters who put them in office. Sadly, the numbers of people with the force of the conviction of RIGHTNESS of America are fading fast.

      I fear the inertia of the Progressives is far too great to overcome. It’s just a matter of time. We can only slow down the demise of our nation’s march to oblivion. I feel fortunate to have lived in America at a time when it was at its finest. Those who come after me will never know what it was like to have lived in a time when we were the greatest nation on earth.

      May God have mercy on us.

      • Everyone of them who walked out, should not have a job when November get here. They just proved that they are not worthy of the American people. They are COWARDS!!

      • HarrietHT2

        While it is true that our public schools are rife with indoctrinating teachers, it is also true that even in our public schools we have patriots here and there still bringing history, civics, and capitalist economics to students. All is not lost, and I frankly don’t much enjoy seeing our side become despondent and fatalistic — that in itself is self-fulfilling prophecy. And do you really want to give these scum, these “enemies domestic” the field of victory? We are not Americans, then, if we capitulate to evil; we will have disgraced and tarred forever the sacrifice of so many millions who GAVE THEIR LIVES to make us free. I will die standing, fighting, not as a slave to any man.

  • Terry was an American son.

    tea party patriot

  • notebene

    That was OUTSTANDING! Gowdy…you brightened my dreary day with that speech!

  • ALL TIME HAS EXPIRED, so it was stated, so shall it be. You Mr. Holder, were held in contempt by a majority of ‘we the people’ before this vote of our Representatives. Now it has been CONFIRMED. You are truly contemptible.

    • M_J_S

      I’m sure Holder gives a s**t. Lets hope this turns into Holder-gate.

      • Hes counting on his boss to get him out of this mess, I’m counting on God to work justice.

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      True, but now it goes to Holder to enforce the contempt citation.

  • Trey for President!

  • Gowdy is a good man and pretty much sums up what we all want….the truth. But Obama and Holder won’t give it to us, so we have to get it from them. It may take years, but it will happen.

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    Yeah, sorry, I hate to be a bucket of cold water here (I’m 50/50 on Gowdy) but I thought he went on for too long. He raised good points; he just kept banging the drum for too long. Just my take.

    • Always has to be one… whatever

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        You go, Noob. You go.

  • aZjimbo

    Could this be the new star of the GOP?

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      Not a GOP run by RINOs.

      • aZjimbo

        I hear you loud and clear.

  • dontdrinkthecoolaid

    Smoking speach, now it’s time to Impeach Chief Justice Roberts for not upholding and protecting the Constitution of the U.S.

    • MacSwain

      Agreed… on two counts. First his recent Arizona immigration vote with the liberals against Arizona and now this additional vote. He is marching with locked arms with the liberals on the court.

  • MacSwain

    In addition to the wrong-headedness of this dizzy, sophomoric administration this is just another brick in the ever-growing wall of illegality it has constantly exhibited. The debt comes due in November and the punishment they will receive at the polls for their actions will be mind-boggleing and wonderful to observe. Can’t wait!

  • Dan

    the truth gives me a tingle up my leg…..

  • Dan

    time to put the NAZIS in black robes up for a vote…Amend the U.S. Constitution to elect these pigs to 8 year terms also in that clause… no more president will be used…each case will have its own outcome and original intent must be used and the writings of the founders must be sited in every case…jail time will be imposed on any judge who willingly usurps the Constitution….

    i trust the people more that Judges…there are 5 on this court who need to be Impeached

  • ohh my…… that was really good.
    I got a little misty on that one. He’s spot on.

  • Sard

    Outstanding–particularly the part about 75%, 50%, a third of the truth … That’s called “compromise” to a Democrat. We call it LIES.

  • brendawatkins

    Mr. Gowdy was smart enough to see the insult, and arrogance of Holder’s bargain. I believe he was truly offended that their intelligence was insulted by the despicable Holder. Gowdy is a breath of fresh air.

    • kong1967

      What was Holder thinking, anyway? I’ll summarize what’s in the documents if you drop the contempt vote.” Uh, sure…we’ll take your word for it. What a moron.

      I can’t remember if he asked the investigation to be dropped or the contempt charge to be dropped, but he was an idiot for thinking he could present a summary that he could entirely make up.

      • I’m quite sure these “documents” will disappear very soon anyway.

        • kong1967

          That’s illegal, but if the documents have records of even worse illegal activity I’m sure they will be destroyed in a heartbeat. If they are destroyed, there needs to be criminal prosecution for interfering with a criiminal investigation and destroying evidence.

    • Tejano_Chimbo

      ► Do you ever disagree with anything written by these jerks at Breibart?

      • Freempg

        Have you ever agreed with a conservative?

      • This is not Breibart or didn’t you know that?

        • Tejano_Chimbo

          ►  No, I didn’t but that’s what I asked her about

      • brendawatkins

        Not usually.. great minds think alike.

  • WilliamWallace

    If men like Trey Gowdy continue to lead, continue to stand up to the tyranny that has become emblematic of this President’s administration, I WILL FOLLOW, regardless of how treacherous the path becomes!

  • PVG

    Gowdy is consistently impressive. BRAVO!

  • PFFV

    Awesome delivery and how can anyone disagree? We have a very powerful tool against our liberal leftist enemy, Common Sense and Facts. Next stop November Election!

  • kong1967

    He’s a good man. I just hope they keep pounding until they get all the facts out and I hope they don’t suppress any in order to let Obama save face….or avoid criminal charges.

  • If we had more people like this in the Senate and Congress, instead of crooks like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, pretty much all the democrats, we wouldnt be in this mess!!

  • My God. Until the Fast and Furious congressional hearings began, I had never heard of Trey Gowdy. Now I wonder why he isn’t running for POTUS!

  • we need many more politicians just like Trey Gowdy . im thinking president . .

  • We need more Trey Gowdy’s in Congress, not less. In fact we need the whole Congress full pro-American Reagan Tea Party Conservatives like Trey Gowdy, Jim DeMint, Michelle Bachamann, etc, in Congress. And we are doing it with people like Ted Cruz and Richard Murdock, and Mia B. Love, and so on.

    This next Congress will not be a Hall filled with anti-American progressive liberals, but with real Reagan Conservative to change the course of this radical regime administration’s catastrophic economic, political, and social destruction of the US Constitution, America, and the American People.

    Did you hear that Jeb Bush..

  • I love words. You can say things in so many different ways that mean so many different things…….But one thing you can say about any member of congress is anything they say, no matter how beautiful on the floor, is absolutely meaningless…..Is Holder still the Attorney General? Yes. Is he being punished for lying to Congress and refusing to comply with their demands? No. Face it. We have an incompetent, do nothing Congress full of gutless wonders…..If…they were to grow a set and exercise their power they would send Holder and Obama home….That will not happen.
