Republican Lawmakers Want to Censure Mad Maxine, Call for Resignation

Published

on

First reported by The Hill, a Republican lawmaker is calling for the resignation of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) after her recent rhetoric encouraging harassment of supporters of President Donald J. Trump.

“[Waters‘ comments] do not become somebody who’s in Congress,” said Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ). “So we just introduced it, we have some co-sponsors, but what she did was to basically incite people to come after and attack members of the president’s Cabinet. And also spread that out to more people.”

Waters has been publicly screeching for days about stepping up the “resistance” against Trump.

“‘And I want to tell you,’ [Waters] said in the interview, ‘for these members of his Cabinet who remain and try to defend him, they’re not going to be able to go to a restaurant, to be able to stop at a gas station, to be able to shop at a department store. The people are going to turn on them, they’re going to protest, they’re going to absolutely harass them until they tell the president: ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’

On Saturday, Waters has echoed a similar tune during a rally.

‘The American people have put up with this president long enough. What more do we need to see? What more lies do we need to hear?’ she yelled. ‘If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them!’

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielson was chased out of a Mexican restaurant last week, as was senior Trump advisor Stephen Miller. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was refused service at a Lexington, VA restaurant Saturday.”

BLP Passage Ends. 

The censure measure would call for Waters to apologize to the White House, resign, and acknowledge in writing that she was wrong to incite harassment against Trump supporters. It specifically accuses Waters of “endangering their lives and sowing seeds of discord.”

Waters has wanted to impeach Trump since before he was elected. Her rhetoric has only escalated since then, an she shows no signs of slowing. The fact that it took so long to censure her in the first place is a miracle in itself.

Republican lawmakers are doing what is responsible, calling for her to step down before her rhetoric someone causes someone to get injured or killed.

Georgia Gubernatorial Candidate Insults Voters: ‘This Primary About Who Can Be The Craziest’

Published

on

A bold strategy.

A candidate for governor in Georgia was caught on tape insulting voters this week, adding to mounting difficulties for his campaign.

“This primary felt like it was [about] who had the biggest gun, who had the biggest truck, and who could be the craziest,” said Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle on a recorded tape.

The recording was released by Cagle’s primary opponent, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

In a recording from the same conversation last month, Cagle could be heard pushing legislation he did not favor in order to deprive another political candidate of “millions of dollars of support.”

“They wanted that $100 million Student Scholarship Organizations,” Cagle said in the recording. “And, you know, I was the only guy standing in the way. Is it bad public policy? Between you and me, it is. I can tell you how it is a thousand different ways.”

President Donald J. Trump endorsed Cagle’s opponent Wednesday, adding to his problems.

“Brian Kemp is running for Governor of the great state of Georgia,” he said. “The Primary is on Tuesday. Brian is tough on crime, strong on the border and illegal immigration. He loves our Military and our Vets and protects our Second Amendment. I give him my full and total endorsement.”

The primary run-off is July 24.

Cagle’s office did not return a request for comment in time for publication.
