Currently in recess, returning at 2:15pm CST to elect Speaker Pro Tempore, with the RINO traitor "Speaker", is expected to reelect Democrat to post. Total outrage in the chamber and in the state of TN that the minority party has STOLEN power again.
Rodents STEAL TN House.
Thats happening in Texas too
The Rodents did the same thing in Texas.
Installed a puppet RINO from San Antonio by voting in a block, pealing off 16 RINOS -— all of whom WILL draw opposition in the primary.
Almost exactly what they were trying in Texas
Are you kidding me??
All Republicans (50) had pledged to support Jason Mumpower for Speaker. This traitor broke his pledge.
To arms ! To arms !
I wish I was. Post #6. They want war, they got it. This was a coup d’etat.
The Rats suceeded in Texas.
Straus is a pro-abortion (including late term abortion), pro-homo, pro-big gubmint liberal.
i am starting to wish
Are you saying that Naifeh is still going to be speaker?
just more change we can believe in.
No. Williams is “Speaker”, but he is a puppet for Naifeh who clearly plotted behind the scenes to orchestrate this. Williams asked Naifeh to kindly CONTINUE presiding over this farce of a session. He’ll likely keep all the Democrats in power in committees. He might as well switch parties right now, he is a dead as a Republican.
If they can take it, it wasn’t really “stolen”.
The Republicans gave it to them, again.
“If you ain’t cheatin’, you ain’t tryin’!”
Republicans are totally unarmed for the political guerrilla warfare that the Dems wage.
For the past 14 years, the Democrats have received a minority of the votes for the TN House, and thanks to their grotesque gerrymanders, maintained anywhere from a 10-15 seat majority. We always whittled down their numbers, and this was the year we finally broke their gerrymander, getting 6 figures more votes for our candidates, widest support ever for the GOP since Reconstruction. Frankly, the entire GOP membership should’ve walked out en masse. This was theft, plain and simple. Williams is a liar and a traitor. His “pledge” was worthless.
Mumpower should’ve gotten several Democrats in his back pocket as Naifeh has with RINOs, including his new puppet.
If not in Tennessee, I don't know where they'd turn to arms.
That’s not stealing power. The Dems were able to get somebody to break ranks. The Republicans could have done the exact same thing.
Something really weird happened like this in PA not too long ago. The Dims took control by a slim majority, the GOP offered a few dims some incentives for switching their votes. The dims responded by poaching one a few of the Republicans with a Philly based Republican as the speaker.
I had to cover the issue for the newspaper since the former speaker was from out here in West Texas.
Just crazy.... The lawmakers honestly thought Craddick would win, but it was stolen because of a RINO coalition.
Granted, Craddick didn’t do much to help himself in the past, but he should have been speaker.
They are stealing power. ALL 50 Republicans pledged to support Mumpower for Speaker. This is a puppet installation by the current rodent who has been in power for 2 decades.
Its time for Conservatives (in the era of big gov Democrat DOMINANCE) to DIVORCE themselves from the Republican Party and run as Democrats if you can ~sometimes~ stomach running as Democrats and voting for their Liberal for “Leaders Post”, then (that way we can increase Conservative Representation without giving up our beliefs-Use the Same “Tactic” Strategy they used against us The “DINO”!
I would take him out back for a little “talk”. What a disgusting traitor.
How is this man a “traitor”? I’m not familiar with TN politics.
The Dems didn't cheat...Republican voters were stupid.
Same thing happened in Texas
I have to explain how ALL GOP members were pledged to support the Republican nominee and how one single member shanked the party in the back and allowed himself to be elected as a puppet to maintain minority Democrat control ?
Even thopugh all 50 had pledged, i think that Mike Williams was not completely trusted...
remember hes about the most RINO in Nashville...
RINOs have liitle sense of loyalty to conservatives or the GOP
RINOs can be bought...
RINOs can be flattered...
RINOS eagerly play the puppet...
2:36pm... currently voting on Speaker Pro Tempore.
This is what comes of the moronic practice of indiscriminately voting for whoever has an ‘R’ next to their name.
This is KENT Williams of Carter County. And he just voted for Lois DeBerry for rodent Speaker Pro Tempore. This man is a world-class back-stabbing Judas traitor.
In TX, the new Speaker, Straus, is RINO stalking horse of the Democrat leader Jim Dunnam of the liberal city of Waco.
Republican primary and general election voters are very mininformed. They don’t keep up with the news to be generous.
Problem in TX was a different situation. Craddick should’ve stepped down when there were cracks in his leadership and approved a successor to hold the caucus together. Straus wasn’t hiding his intentions. This session this afternoon was expected to see Republican Jason Mumpower elected, period. This was a total and absolute ambush. It’s a shameful day in Tennessee today that a minority party stole once again power rightfully belong to the Republican party, the party that has received a majority of votes for the past 14 years and STILL has not gotten control of the House.
You bet they will.
But...but... state legislatures reflect the INTERESTS of the WHOLE state, dontsa know. How silly to think that a gerrymandered RAT legislature held hostage by Dems in urban areas with the help of a token RINO would do otherwise. We MUST repeal the 17th amendment immediately and let those wonderful guys in the state legislatures pick our U.S. Senators FOR us so our states will have representation in the federal government. Clearly, we won't have a TRUE Republic in this country until the TN RAT legislature is allowed to overturn the election results and install Harold Ford as U.S. Senator, just as they overturned the vote on the state level.
Can't you see this is all being done because it's in the BEST INTERESTS of your entire state?
< / delusional "Abolish the 17th amendment" crowd on FR>
And they thought Blago was bad.
I will agree with that.
It may be spelled Waco; but’s it’s always been known as Whacko to us Texans.
Actually, the Speaker Pig Naifeh is a RURAL Democrat. The rural West TN crowd has controlled the body for years and years.
Williams just now to a Republican calling a point of order, “I CAN CHOOSE WHOMEVER I WANT AS SPEAKER !”
