Published

on

Longtime North Carolina Congressman Walter Jones passed away on Sunday morning, his 76th birthday. He had received a leave of absence from the House of Representatives on account of poor health recently.

Jones had represented North Carolina’s Third Congressional District in the House since 1995. His father, Walter Sr, was also a longtime North Carolinian member of Congress, representing an adjacent constituency from 1966-1992.

Jones became known for a willingness to buck Republican party leadership and align with libertarian, populist and Tea Party elements throughout his career.

After strongly supporting the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Jones did an about face on the war, becoming one of the strongest Republican critics of foreign entanglements and regime change in the Middle East. He defeated a primary challenge by a former Bush administration official in 2016.

He viewed his initial vote in support of the war with profound regret, and sent more than 12,000 letters to family members of troops killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.

In accordance with his anti-war views, Jones became one of the few members of Congress to endorse Texas Congressman Ron Paul when he ran for President in 2008 and 2012.

Jones is survived by his wife and daughter. He was known as a devout Christian.

California Democrat Harley Rouda Has a Restraining Order Against Him- Filed by His Own Mother!

That’s a new one!

A California freshman Democrat has a restraining order filed against him- by his own mother!

Harley Rouda, who represents California’s 48th Congressional district, has had a restraining order filed against him by his mother, Marlese Rouda, since 2011. View the document here. Rogue Review first reported on the bizarre legal development on Tuesday.

Rouda is legally restrained from “directly or indirectly harassing, annoying, interfering with, harassing by telephone, assaulting, or doing bodily harm, to Defendant, Marlese N. Rouda…”

Maybe a restraining order from an ex-girlfriend or wife is one thing, but it’s somewhat of a legal novelty to have a restraining order filed against you by your own mother. The order was granted by a judge in a Franklin County, Ohio Court Division of Domestic Relations, so it’s likely he engaged in poor behavior of some kind against his own mother.

An earlier clause in the restraining order bars Rouda from selling, destroying or taking possession of any household property belonging to his mother, suggesting the order might’ve been granted after Harley Rouda stole or sold some of his mother’s possessions.

Rouda is a freshman Democrat running for reelection in the Orange County District against Republican Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel. California Republicans view the formerly red, now purple congressional seat as within their reach after a Republican retook the nearby 25th district in a special election earlier this year.

There might be some mothers who have second thoughts about voting for Rouda’s reelection, after finding out that he hasn’t exactly been the most loving son to his own mother.
