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.
PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks
The Democrat complained about masks.
New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.
Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”
This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.
Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.
Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
