Republican Virginia Rep. Scott Taylor confirms that he called the offices of the anti-amnesty group NumbersUSA, which has been critical of Taylor’s support for passing a permanent legislative solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. Taylor is seen by insiders as Speaker Paul Ryan’s informal whip for passing an amnesty bill before the end of the year.
Multiple sources close to NumbersUSA confirmed to Big League Politics that Taylor made multiple angry phone calls to the group’s office, and in the latter conversation asked for the group’s address and threatened to “blow up” the office.
Taylor confirms that he called NumbersUSA, but denies that he ever made a bomb threat. He defends himself by saying, “Why would they call a political blog instead of the police?”
Except @chuckwoolery , this is completely #fakenews. Two people were w/me on call. Why would they call a political blog instead of the police? This WASHINGTON group already sent out complete lies on us, it backfired. Wait till we expose their $$making scam. #draintheswamp https://t.co/9jIf1ysRKC

It is entirely possible that NumbersUSA did not actually believe a sitting congressman would literally blow up their office, and thus no call to the police would have been required. However, the story underscores Ryan’s allies’ anger toward anti-amnesty crusaders.
Taylor and his office have not responded to Big League Politics’ requests for comment.
Republican Rep. Scott Taylor phoned the offices of the anti-illegal immigration nonprofit group NumbersUSA and threatened to “blow up” the group’s offices for criticizing his position on amnesty.
Sources familiar with House Speaker Paul Ryan’s whip operation tell Big League Politics that Taylor, the first-term congressman from Virginia’s Second District, is informally responsible for whipping votes to preserve President Obama’s DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. NumbersUSA criticized Taylor and encouraged its followers to call his office. The nonprofit group sent around a letter that Taylor signed alongside 33 other Republicans urging Speaker Ryan for “passing of a permanent legislative solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients before the end of the year.”
Then things got nasty.
A source close to NumbersUSA told Big League Politics that Rep. Scott Taylor called NumbersUSA’s office last Friday “screaming profanities at them” after the group disseminated the letter. The source claimed that NumbersUSA did “nothing else” to agitate Taylor, merely sent around the letter.
On Wednesday, Rep. Taylor called again “asking for their physical address and threatened to blow up their offices,” according to the source. Multiple sources close to NumbersUSA confirmed the statement on the phone call.
The feud between Taylor and NumbersUSA is evident based on Taylor’s Facebook page, where he posted about the group last Wednesday, the day of the first alleged phone call to the group’s offices.
“This bottom feeding Washington group, NumbersUSA, is being completely disingenuous with this BS Ad. This is a group that raises money off people’s fears. Never have I written or stated support for Obama’s amnesty. This group told me they believe kids/young adults in the program should be deported back to countries they do not know and were not raised in. They were told my position,” Taylor wrote on his Facebook page, showing an image of a NumbersUSA ad slamming Taylor.
“Thirty-four Republicans in the House of Representatives signed a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan calling for passage of a permanent DACA amnesty before the end of the year. Reps. Scott Taylor (R-Va.) and Dan Newhouse (R-Wash.) led the effort,” according to NumbersUSA’s website.
Dan Crenshaw White Knights for Liz Cheney After Republicans Blast Her Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment
Birds of a feather flock together.
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.
“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”
“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added.

Crenshaw himself was then roundly criticized in the replies to his tweet.
The people of Wyoming can do better than Liz Cheney, like the people of Texas can do better than you

I wish SNL never mocked you, because then you'd just be some un-known RINO, but unfortunately they made you a star.

Really thought you were the man. Much respect for your service and sacrifice, but if you are part of the GOP trying to purge the party of Trumpism. Count me out. I can’t handle more Romney n McCain candidates

So sad. Turns out your just another politician. You’re right about disagreeing. You’ll see it at the ballot box next election how we can peacefully disagree.

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

As the old saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together.” Dan Crenshaw and Liz Cheney most certainly do not represent the future of the GOP.
