Virginia County GOP Gives Congressman Vote of ‘No Confidence’ for Officiating Gay Wedding

Republicans in Cumberland County didn’t appreciate Denver Riggleman’s virtue-signaling stunt.

Published

Libertarian-leaning Congressman Denver Riggleman (R-VA) earned some good mainstream media publicity after he recently officiated a homosexual wedding, but his county Republican Party is not as impressed by his virtue-signaling antics.

The Cumberland County Republican Committee in Virginia passed a motion of no confidence for Riggleman on Monday for participating in the gay wedding ceremony. They also chastised the Koch-funded Congressman for his lax stances on immigration enforcement and border security.

This comes shortly after the 5th District Republican Party failed at passing a censure motion to rebuke Riggleman for officiating the wedding.

“I move that the committee censure Denver Riggleman for failing to uphold the Republican Party platform in that it states ‘marriage is between one man and one woman,’” the motion against Riggleman read.

The motion was ultimately ruled as being out of order by district committee chairman Melvin Adams and dismissed. A spokesman for the committee released a statement saying that Riggleman “has full confidence in the district committee” and they support his efforts to make the GOP an “inclusive party of liberty and freedom for everyone.”

“I’m a Congressman. I represent everyone, and I’ll tell you this, really love is love, if you’re gonna talk about it that way, so that’s what I did, and I was just so proud that I was able to that, and that was my first wedding by the way,” Rep. Riggleman said to the Washington Post about his decision.

“My real belief is that government shouldn’t be involved in marriage at all, but if it is, everybody has to be treated equally before the law, and that is part of our Republican creed. And it also comes down to love is love. I’m happy to join two people together who obviously love each other,” Riggleman added.

Although Riggleman was able to avoid censure from Republicans in his district, he was not able to escape consequences from his county party. Riggleman has also recently voted to potentially give millions of third-world socialists asylum in the U.S. and legalize green card abuse to flood the U.S. with cheap labor at the behest of multinational corporations.

Riggleman has also been critical of President Donald Trump, urging him to get off Twitter while defending the late former Sen. John McCain.

Riggleman appears out of step with the Republican Party in the age of Trump, as he seems to follow his Koch-backed libertine principles rather than authentic conservative principles.

Mad Maxine Says She Has Met Crips and Bloods ‘In The Hood’ with ‘More Integrity’ Than the President

She is off her rocker.

Published

on

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) made the stunning claim recently that she has met gangbangers from the inner city with “more integrity” than President Donald Trump.

The Congresswoman, who has been ridiculed by the President for having a low IQ, made the comment while appearing on Showtime’s “Desus & Mero.”

“I have worked in some of the toughest communities,” she said in a clip that was tweeted by the hosts Thursday. “I’ve worked with gangs. I’ve worked with Crips, I’ve worked with Bloods. And there’s more integrity in many of these young people in the ‘hood than this man has.”

She also claimed without providing any evidence that the “street player” Mr. Trump has “flirted with gangsters” throughout his history as a businessman and politician.

“This country cannot tolerate another four years of him,” she said.

The clip of Waters running her mouth about Trump can be seen here:

Waters has angered the populists within her party by suggesting that the big money should have more control over deciding who is the Democrat Party presidential nominee.

“You would have two, three, four at a time in Beverly Hills having dinners,” she said last week. “Some of our contributors who are very rich were holding, you know, fancy parties, trying to accommodate the request for donations and contributions. And so, you know, the conclusion, the thinking is that if we are supplying tremendous dollars to candidates, we ought to have more say.”

“A lot of people have come to the conclusion that it should not simply be Iowa and New Hampshire and certainly they are not reflective of the makeup of this country,” she added.

Previously, Waters has demanded that President Trump be incarcerated and subjected to cruel and unusual punishment because of Ukraine-gate and other “nothing burger” fake scandals.

“I’m calling on the GOP to stop Trump’s filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed,” Waters wrote in a tweet last year. “Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement.”

“But for now, impeachment is the imperative,” she added.

From her words, it is clear that Waters has a delusional view of herself and her partisan crusade to destroy President Trump.

“Most people who have watched me over the past two years know that I am a responsible person who has talked about the Constitution, who has talked about the fact that this President does not respect the fact that (Russian President Vladimir) Putin is responsible for basically bugging our electoral system, hacking into the DNC. They know that I’ve been serious about this. I’ve had the courage to stand up when nobody else would stand with me,” Waters said.

Few lawmakers embody the excesses of the Washington D.C. swamp than Waters, who has lingered in Congress for almost three decades.
