What a powerful speech! He tells it like it is.




South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy has said some amazing things during his time in Congress that has gotten the attention of America.

Using his prosecutorial skills, a deep respect and understanding of how law and government works, and a sardonic wit, Gowdy is unafraid to call things as he sees them.

One of his more memorable moments came on the House floor as he sought support for his ENFORCE the Law act, a bill that would give Congress standing to sue an overreaching Executive branch that has taken lawlessness to an “unprecedented level”.

the house DOES NOT MAKE LAW....the senate and the president have to sign off on it, also...why????....because that is what is written in the constitution....he wasted five minutes of congressional time on a "supposed bill" (stupid as it was) to make a point that the president needs to "step and fetch it"......let's face it.....white southerners such as trey gowdy hate the fact that Obama is president...to me he just another white racist.

Typical response from you, let's play the race card.

Obama has wasted 6+ years of the Americans time because he hates white people.

See how stupid that sounds.

Unfortunately no matter where a person comes from and how true his words are... as long as the people do not care nothing significant will happen.

Neither does Mr. Phone and Pen, but if Congress doesn't pass these days, he just writes an Executive Order to make it so. Which is worse? The House passing a bill to try to take back some congressional power, or the executive making the congress entirely ceremonial and for show by simply by-passing it at every opportunity?

If the Congress doesn't do something to curb the executive, then we the people are in danger of becoming entirely disenfranchised in this country.

oh, i'm not playing any "card"...I'm just out and out calling the congressman a racist....here's a sample of his ultra-conservative record........
Gowdy's voting record is very conservative, even by South Carolina Republican standards. In August 2011 during the 2011 United States debt ceiling crisis, Gowdy opposed Speaker John Boehner’s debt limit bill, and he voted against the final debt ceiling agreement.[18] He also opposed the 2011 defense authorization bill, citing concerns about the prospect of Americans being detained without trial on national security grounds.[19] In December 2010, he told Congressional Quarterly that he would only support a measure if its sponsor can demonstrate that the Constitution gives the government the power to act in a particular realm.[7]

Gowdy worked on the Committee on Judiciary, the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and the Committee on Education and the Workforce. Gowdy frequently speaks on the floor of the House on issues ranging from Fast and Furious to his support for the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.

In 2012, he received the Defender of Economic Freedom award from the fiscally conservative 501(c)4 organization Club for Growth. The award is given to the members of Congress who have the year's highest ranking, according to the Club for Growth's metrics. Gowdy scored 97 out of 100, and was one of 34 congressmen given the award.[20]

An ardent social conservative, Gowdy considers himself "pro-life plus." He not only believes "in the sanctity of life," but argues that "the strategy should be broader than waiting for the Supreme Court to revisit Roe v. Wade."[21]

Trey Gowdy signed the Contract From America, which aims to "Defund, repeal and replace the recently passed government-run health care" (otherwise known as the Afforadable Care Act, ACA, or Obamacare.).[22][23]

he wants to set this country back 70 years

????

Laws certainly originate in the House. The legislative branch IS the lawmaking branch. Certainly a bill has to also pass the senate but laws can and do originate in the house all of the time. Methinks a civics review is in order.

Ah, the "racist" card again. The last bastion of the left. If unable to justify something, just call out "racist" and you win. Well done!

None of those things are racist. Not a bit. Can you point out the racism in his votes or positions or do you call anything you disagree with "racist?"

How is not wanting a service member detained without trial racist?
How is not wanting to increase the debt racist?
How does wanting the government to follow it's Constitutionally limited duties racist?
How is support for reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Prevention act racist? Are you suggesting that blacks beat their wives more than whites?
How is economic grow racist?
How is disagreeing with the ACA and it's mandate racist.?


For every bad decision your president makes, all you can do is punt and say 'cause y'all is racist?

"curb the executive"????....what the hell do you think they have been doing since he got into office.....congressional republicans shut down this country, and almost defaulted on our national debt twice. they've torn apart Roe v. Wade, they are suppressing the vote in every state they can, they now are refusing to give poor people health care just to stick it to them and the president, they've vetoed minimum wage, they only care about the wealthy according to their voting record...and somehow you think that isn't disenfranchising the American people?.....

He never mentioned race..............Your arguments are chains of self imposed slavery upon the Black culture. Your argument and comments are the very reason the Black culture is still in slavery.


The progressive game of going after the messenger instead of the message is getting old. People see it for what it is. It actually shows weakness in your argument.

If you want to know why nothing moves through Congress, you need to look just as hard, if not harder, at the Senate. There have been things (although not many) that have originated in the Senate since the 'Pubs took the House that have moved through the House and on to be signed by Obama, but there has been NOTHING that has originated in the House that has even come up for vote in the Senate. That would be Harry Reid (D) running interference for Obama.

No, the executive branch almost defaulted on the debt twice by refusing to agree to reduce spending.
Roe Vs Wade was not torn apart at all. Can you show where it was "torn apart?"
Where are they suppressing the vote? How? We see a lot of voting fraud by the left and using the IRS to keep political opponents out of the political arena but no voter suppression by the republicans unless you think illegals and felons and dead people should vote (of course you do because they vote democrat).
They are not refusing to give poor people health care, they just recognized we can't afford to go into more debt.

Besides...not a single thing above is racist You still can't justify that comment, can you?

Sometimes I am a little thick, please highlight the words that say racist to you!

Oh never mind, I get it, if I criticize king O I must be doing so because I hate blacks. Not because he is an incompetent boob that would screw up anything that he tried to do.

Golf is a great example, it is the great equalizer, in an honest game your hard work, skill and determination reflects itself in ones score. Interesting how after all these years O's score is a state secret. Know why? I do. He sucks at golf like he does at everything else. And BTW, the little white ball doesn't know or care about his ethnic background.
