While members of Congress are now allowed to say “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Hanukkah,” “Happy New Year,” or other holiday greetings, a victory against the politically correct “War on Christmas,” Breitbart News has learned members and staff are still not allowed to devote an entire message to spreading holiday cheer.

In a December 4th email communication to all House offices, the House Committee on Administration’s chairwoman Rep. Candice Miller (R-MI) and ranking member Rep. Susan Davis (D-CA) announced the rule change. In that email, which was obtained by Breitbart News, Miller and Davis made clear that the new policy—a lift of the decades-old universal ban on “Merry Christmas” and all other pro-holiday greetings begun in 1973—“still prohibits Members from sending communications for the sole purpose of expressing a holiday greeting.”

“The Commission on Congressional Mailing Standards (Franking Commission) is pleased to announce that, effective immediately, Members may include incidental holiday greetings in their official constituent communications,” Miller and Davis wrote in an email obtained by Breitbart News. “Prior to the Commission’s adoption of this new commonsense policy, franking regulations prohibited any form of a holiday greeting whatsoever. However, the new policy, which still prohibits Members from sending communications for the sole purpose of expressing a holiday greeting, allows Members to include simple holiday salutations like Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah.”

I say Merry Christmas to one and all, on this day my Lord was born! And he promised all of us,if we fellowed him, that all our sins would be forgiven.      B

Our Nation was established on the Christian ethic. Thomas Jefferson was an Agnostic. When he was somewhat supported as to be the next President, interesting it was about 2/3rds, many Christians were against him. There was a meeting because Jeffereson seemed to be the best candidate. Jefferson agreed to comply to support Christianity as the main faith. He did so because it was said that it is not forced. One can be an Agnostic and in our time, an Atheist.. we still have our freedoms! The enemy of us all wants to take that freedom away! The main focus because of actions, is Obama!

Putin met with Obama and they could not relate!!! Think on that! Putin has a 70% approval with citizens! America, if you are ignorant, supports the other percentage because support for seniors is lame there! It is not from our government but from love for all people and from Christians! Putin told Obama he is corrupt and uniformed! A Communist President telling the idiot we have in the WH he is corrupt?

While we still cannot understand this anti-Christ Adminstration... Merry Christmas and may God bless your family and guide them to their ultimate destination... to be with Him!

God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.

Sounds just like an atheist calling on Gods help with his dying breath ! I do agree with you but I think old TJ wavered a bit here and there with his beliefs ! I love reading his quotes , he was a very amazing man !



My question is; Are these the only reps in the house with common sense?

     I have the privileged right to join with my fellow Patriots here and say Merry Christmas to you all as an acknowledgement of my Lord and Saviors birth and life . It is through him and our faith that we were able to have this Republic formed by men of faith ,based on God's law  and the free will of faithful citizen's to carry on that faithful mission . We have drifted and been manipulated but this is a nation that still believes in God and battered and attacked at our core has given us a fresh awakening and a commitment to return to our faith and join once again as free men to assert the tenants of God's law and grace to save our Republic one more time. It is no accident that the Tea Party was born as a largely Christian response to the failure of the Government and the direction of the country ,it was no accident that the Democratic platform removed God from it's bylaws , and it will be no small victory when we march as Christian Soldiers to once again take back what is our's . Mr.Long ,Mr. Bolino , Mr. Smith , Mr Parker it is also no accident that you choose to stand and profess your faith and commitment to our Lord and Country and to the others to add their comments soon ,take a moment to enjoy the fact that we will soon be removing and prosecuting those who were trying to take our country from us , and out of that struggle our faith becomes renewed .     

America bless God!

"WAR ON CHRISTMAS IN AMERICA?"  you bet there is! now Washington has gotten a taste.


What kind of idiot would have went along with that nonsense in the first place? I mean, if I was a rep or senator, I wouldn't be concerned with some idiot trying to impose stupid rules on my communications. Good grief!

The words of Jesus as recorded by Matthew chapter 10 verse 32 -33 "Everyone therefore who confess Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven, but whoever shall deny Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven"

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all, Priase be to our Lord, for He alone is worthy!

What and WHO was in the 1973 congress that wrote that rule into law?

1973 . . . . hmmmm . . . . . . ?



Merry Christmas

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
