Georgia Gun Owners executive director Patrick Parsons received a call during a Facebook livestream on Thursday from a staffer for Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA) hoping to censor an article published by the group about Isakson joining the witch hunt against President Trump.
“You’ll have to call us back a little bit later, OK?” Parsons said to her. When she became belligerent, he revealed her identity to his audience while putting her on speaker phone.
“This is Amanda Maddox from Johnny Isakson’s office. She is demanding that the article be taken down,” he explained to his audience.
“I’m not demanding. I asked very nicely,” she retorted.
“OK, so we have the Politico quote from Johnny Isakson: ‘This sounds like a hard quid pro quo.’ That’s Johnny Isakson. ‘That’s the firmest anybody could say about the categorization of that. To my knowledge, everything that was said before was a soft quid pro quo.’ What is inaccurate about that?” Parsons asked Maddox.
“Johnny was in meetings, and was unable to watch the testimony yesterday in the House. He was asked by a reporter, “did you see the testimony?” He said, ‘no, I plan to review it later,’ and the statement that the witness made at the very beginning where he said, ‘was it a quid pro quo? The answer is yes.’ He was repeated back that statement to which he responded, ‘that’s what he said?’ or ‘he said it was a hard quid pro quo?’ and that remark has been taken and turned into a statement as opposed to repeating back a question,” Maddox explained.
Parsons refused to take Maddox’s spin as fact, and pointed to Isakson’s history of fighting pro-gun activists in Georgia as a reason not to believe her story.
“We want a recording, and we want the actual quote. We’ve been spit in the face by the Senator on gun control in 2013, ok, on the Toomey/Manchin expanded federal background check bill when he flirted with that. We have been spit in [the] face on S2554. We met with your staff in D.C.,” Parsons explained.
“You want to give $75 million dollars to left-wing researchers at the CDC to produce gun control studies, and that’s what they will produce. Do you not understand why gun owners are mad? Why gun owners are mad at this legislation? This is exactly what they left wants,” he added.
Big League Politics reported on Isakson’s betrayal yesterday:
Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA), after he was informed of the testimony of U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland earlier today, said to reporters “that sounds like a hard quid pro quo.”
“That’s the firmest anybody could say about that categorization of it,” Isakson said. “To my knowledge, everything that was said before was a soft quid pro quo.”
Isakson – who is set to retire from the Senate at the end of this year with three years left in his term – had been an opponent of the impeachment inquiry before making this apparent flip-flop.
“The House of Representatives is abandoning more than a century’s worth of precedent and tradition in impeachment proceedings and denying President Trump basic fairness and due process accorded every American,” the resolution previously supported by Isakson states.
Isakson is repeating the line from the fake news that Sondland’s testimony today somehow vindicated the Democrats when he repeatedly admitted that President Trump never ordered a quid pro quo.
The voters of Georgia will have the chance to replace this RINO with a solid conservative in the near future, as Isakson plans to retire at the end of 2019.
Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan
Another victory for the war party.
Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.
The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.
The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.
Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.
“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.
“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.
“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”
The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.
“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.
“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.
The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
