Stenographer Hauled From House Floor
National Review ^ | 10/16/13 | Betsy Woodruff

Posted on 10/16/2013 10:50:08 PM PDT by Nachum

The government shutdown ended on a surreal and chilling note. Minutes before the House finished voting for the Senate compromise, a stenographer was pulled out of the chamber while yelling about conspiracies. A few people physically removed her from the chamber and took her to an adjacent elevator. She continued to yell. They were followed by a crowd of reporters and members of Congress, including Representatives Al Green (D., Texas) and Louie Gohmert (R., Texas). It took a few moments for the elevator doors to open, so the people who removed her from the chamber held her against the elevator as she yelled.

This is what I recorded of what she said: “This is not one nation under God. It never was. Had it been, it would not have been – no – it would not have been – the Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons! They go against God. You cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve two masters. Praise Jesus [recording unclear]. Lord Jesus Christ!”

No, it’s not funny. I think everybody involved in this, even the low level staffers, have been under enormous pressure. Plus, there’s such a feeling of tension and anger now, as well as fear, that some people are bound to snap.

I think everyone feels the “wrongness” of what is going on, and are disturbed by it. The person might not be quite right, but her sentiment might not be altogether wrong.

I fear for my country and its people.

Poor lady is probably a well intentioned Christian who listens to Alex Jones too much and it sent her a little off the rails - she is certainly right about the Two Masters stuff it’s God or mammon - money or the cross!

“This is not one nation under God. It never was. Had it been, it would not have been – no – it would not have been – the Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons! They go against God. You cannot serve two masters.

If one comes from a purely Christian perspective, there is historical truth to what the woman is saying.

It is very true that America was founded more on Enlightenment principles than Christian principles. Now much of that is coming back to bite us.

I'm not here to argue the point, but the woman might not be as loony as she'll be made out to be.

I won’t comment on the freemason part, but it sounds to me that as a christian woman, she finally got tired of working in a whore house.

She's probably a righteous Christian that heard to much of the democrat anti-Ameican, Anti-Christian bullshit and had enough. We should all respond that way.

I don’t know how a sensible person can sit there and listen to the insanity going on day in and day out. They sent the wrong person to the hospital, but they didn’t have enough ambulances for the right ones.

Its not a lefty thing, it seems to be a conservative Catholic thing to be paranoid about Freemasons.

That guy Michael Vorris put out a few weird freemason videos.

The human brain is relentless in trying to see order in chaos, to make sense of things. Pattern recognition is how it works. I am certain the environment she was in would be impossible to deal with. Her job required her to sit and listen to libturd irrational morons for hours. Sheila Jackson Lee comes to mind or Maxine Waters. Chuck Shumer, Waxman, he’ll I could go on and on. CSPAN never pans back to show the empty chamber. Hell, these assholes can’t even listen to each other. Congress is the ultimate no show job. I am surprised anyone with a brain could sit and listen to those libturds for hours on end.

My conjecture: She's got inside information about REAL conspiracies and cracked under pressure, in an incoherent manner.

I view this as another data-point.

Who cares?

Worse she could have carried on about Guam tipping over, right?

Even crazier she could have passed the biggest law in US history an hour before midnight on Christmas “in order to find out what’s in [the law]”.

I find her actions unremarkable.

Yup. When you SEE the purposed destruction of America and have inside information on both sides of the aisle performing actions towards that aim, this would be the most vocal — if not terribly convincing, to the common man — way to inform the public. I admire her intent and perseverance, even if I cannot admire her technique.

We have the right to believe what we want and still hold a job.

I have been a Mason for 40-years, and have only had one Master, the Lord Jesus Christ.

There has never been any pressure by the Craft to make me do otherwise.

The problem with the anti-Masons is that they demand that each and every organization adhere to their one particular religious viewpoint at the expense of all others.

In this, they are much like Islam.

Well, I've been "TOLD" she was spouting stuff about conspiracies BUT what I've seen of the video does not prove it one way or the other.

I wonder what she "REALLY" said?

I am willing to be she was telling the TRUTH about what just went down and the powers that be are going to make sure she is branded a nut case to discredit her before she can get to the media and tell her story.
