I am so ashamed of the GOP. The DEMS gave been lost, not the GOP has joined them. What a bad example to our children. Just what I want my grandchildren to see! UGH! Generally speaking, I would not give you a plug nickel for any of these political fools. I guess many of these folks did not grow up with a Dad and Mom like I did. It is called behaving yourself! We are in such bad shape as a country, we have no leaders. The two party system is beyond broken. Years and years ago the Lord showed me to be independent of all this dysfunction!

Just 4% of Americans have a Biblical Worldview. The result should not surprise you. We have gone to hell as a Country. JESUS! JESUS! JESUS! is the answer!
American politics is overflowing with fools. Got Questions states: The Bible has much to say about fools. The word fool today usually means “a senseless fellow, a dullard.” The biblical definition has the added dimension of “someone who disregards God’s Word.” The Bible lists many characteristics of such a person, often contrasting him with one who is wise. Ecclesiastes 10:2 says, “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.” A fool is one whose wayward heart turns continually toward foolishness. “Fools speak foolishness and make evil plans” (Isaiah 32:6). Proverbs 26:11 says, “As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly.” Fools do not learn their lessons from the mistakes they make. They continue doing the same foolish things over and over again, to their own destruction (Proverbs 18:7). More Here
Tensions on Capitol Hill spilled over today into an alleged altercation in the House and a near-fistfight at a Senate hearing, Axios’ Juliegrace Brufke writes.
- Why it matters: The incidents — which stunned Congress — weren’t driven by protesters or tourists. They involved a former House speaker and a U.S. senator.
What’s happening: In the House, Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.) accused former Speaker Kevin McCarthy of elbowing him in the back.
- Burchett, who voted to oust McCarthy, called the California Republican “a bully.”
- NPR reporter Claudia Grisales said she witnessed the scuffle during an interview with Burchett.
Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) challenged Teamsters President Sean O’Brien to a fight during a hearing on labor unions.
- Mullin held up printed tweets about him by O’Brien, a witness at the hearing, that said: “You know where to find me. Anyplace, Anytime cowboy.”
- “Sir, this is a time. This is a place,” Mullin said from the podium where lawmakers sit.
The other side: McCarthy denied that he elbowed Burchett despite multiple witnesses confirming the spat: “If I would hit somebody, they would know I hit them.”
- At the hearing, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who chairs the committee, attempted to rein them in. “You’re a United States senator. Sit down. We’re not here to talk about physical abuse,” he said.
🔎 Between the lines: Congress is racing to avert a government shutdown before a Friday deadline.
A Senate committee hearing appeared to be on the brink of a physical altercation on Tuesday as a Republican senator stood up and threatened to fight a labor leader as the committee’s chairman, Sen. Bernie Sanders, tried to play peacemaker.
“Sir, this is a time, this is a place. You want to run your mouth, we can be two consenting adults and we can finish it here,” GOP Sen. Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma told Teamsters President Sean O’Brien during a Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing after reading a tweet in which O’Brien said he could take the senator “any time” or “any place.”
