REP. PAUL GOSAR: 'I DARE THE P.C. POLICE' TO PUNISH ME FOR 'MERRY CHRISTMAS' MESSAGE

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 !

MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!

BRAVO! FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT!  I HEARTED SAY:  "MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE!" NOW COME AND GET ME! ( BRING YOUR WEAPONS! )

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.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

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 . . . . . . ?

ALERT ALERT

Breaking — West Virginia Lawmakers Invite Persecuted Pro-Second Amendment Counties In Virginia To Join Their State

West Virginia lawmakers introduced legislation to invite persecuted pro Second Amendment Counties to join their state.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution to remind Virginia residents from Frederick County that they have a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia.

West Virginia freedom fighters broke away from Virginia Democrat slave owners during the Civil War.

This week West Virginia has once again invited persecuted Virginia pro 2-A counties to come join their state.

Sounds like a winning plan!

Resolution 8 reads as follows:

HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 8

(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter, Linville, Sypolt, Bibby, Hill, Ellington, Higginbotham, J. Kelly, Mandt, Pack, Dean and P. Martin)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Whereas, The Legislature of West Virginia finds that in 1863, due to longstanding perceived attitudes of neglect for the interests of the citizens of Western Virginia, and a studied failure to address the differences which had grown between the counties of Western Virginia and the government at Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia was irretrievably divided, and the new State of West Virginia was formed; and

Whereas, Such division occurred as the Trans-Allegheny portions of Virginia perceived that they suffered under an inequitable measure of taxation by which they bore a disproportionate share of the tax burden; and

Whereas, That this perception was further compounded by the effects of a scheme of representation by which Trans-Allegheny Virginia was not allowed to have its proper and equitable share of representation in the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, That this arrangement arguably resulted in the tax dollars of Trans-Allegheny Virginia being used to enrich the Tidewater through internal improvements which did not benefit the people of Western Virginia, while the people of the Trans-Allegheny had little to no say in how their tax dollars were allocated; and

Whereas, Though this course led to an irreconcilable division, and the subsequent formation of West Virginia, yet, the longstanding peaceful cooperation between this State and the Commonwealth of Virginia is a sign that such separation, undertaken even under the most challenging and onerous of circumstances, can, with the passage of time, yield lasting results which are beneficial to both sides; and

Whereas, In the intervening years, the same neglect for the interests of many of the remaining counties of the Commonwealth of Virginia has allegedly been evidenced by the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, Particularly, many citizens of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont contend that an inequitable measure of taxation exists by which they bear a disproportionate share of the present tax burden of the Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont also believe that, currently, a scheme of representation exists by which the citizens of Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont do not have a proper share of representation in the government at Richmond; and, consequently

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont believe that their tax dollars are used to enrich the Tidewater and Northern Virginia through internal improvements which do not benefit the people of these other parts of Virginia, while the people of these other parts of Virginia have little to no say in how their tax dollars are allocated; and

Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitutions; and

Whereas, Providing that the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia shall give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity and ability to do so, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia.
