Skip to comments.The Mystery of Missing Congressman Stockman Keeps Getting Weirder
Posted on 02/01/2014 7:31:44 AM PST by Texas Fossil
Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas is missing. He hasn't been seen in public since January 14. Reports that he traveled to Egypt couldn't be confirmed by another congressman on the trip or by Stockman's own office, where the person who answered the phone simply said, "That's the first that I've heard of that."
(Excerpt) Read more at thewire.com ...
Some rumors that Stockman was also in Russia, possibly talked with Putin.
After the "State of the Union Speech" he is reported to have said he is going to bring Impeachment proceedings.
It this just weird or is this how bad things really are?
Stockman was at press conferences every day he was on the congressional trip. The media hates you and is lying.
Let’s hope he isn’t hiking in the Appalachians...
Well, my question is “was he ‘disappeared’ by the GOPe, or by Obama?”
OK, if I accept your judgement, did Stockman go to Egypt?
I know the baggage that Stockman carries, but I am convinced exposure of Obama must be done. Hence my interest in this type of article.
When Bachmann, King and Gohmert went to Egypt, it was to gather information from the unfiltered source. Unfiltered by the liars at the State Department.
Since you invoked the Admin tag, you obviously think the source (which I do not have experience with) is invalid.
Sounds like Cornyn is really in trouble...they are still running articles about Stockman...”missing”
Well, I respect your perspective.
But my point in posting this was, did he go to Egypt. He has made noises about Impeachment charges before.
If he went to Egypt, I am interested in what he found.
Some folks don’t really care about the truth. They just want something they can use.
Yes, Cornyn is in deep trouble. His recent heavy nonsense ads are an indication of how deep of trouble he is in.
Now, I’m not convinced I would vote for Stockman. But I am NOT HAPPY with Cornyn. He is either clueless, or he is sold out.
God Bless Stockman -
Cornyn and friends (democrats/socialists) are pulling out all the stops to smear Stockman.
All the more reason for freedom loving people to distrust the media, and support anti-establishment candidates.
Cornyn MUST go.
In general, week-old news articles aren’t worth posting on FR. As it turns out, all your answers have been here for a number of days:
Agree Cornyn must go. But we need a candidate that will win too.
It does no good to defeat Cornyn to have a ComDem replace him. The tide should be heavily pro GOP in November in Texas, but that is a long time from now.
Cornball is NOT clueless; he's sold out. It's Cornball supporters who are clueless. One cannot imagine the liberal votes this man will begin casting after March 4, when he is safely re-nominated.
Heck, WND, Glenn Beck and others recycle months old or years old stories!
Stockman sues Cornyn SuperPac for false statements
HOUSTON - Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX) today filed a libel lawsuit challenging numerous false statements made by a John Cornyn super PAC operating under the name “Texans for a Conservative Majority.”
The Cornyn PAC claims Stockman had been “jailed more than once,” was “charged with a felony” and “violated federal ethics laws,” all of which are false statements.
Step one - defeat Cornyn in the Primary. Stockman is the guy to do that.
Stockman may not be the most astute businessman, but he is a solid conservative and diligent in his work.
Stovall is okay too.
Cornyn faces to candidates in the primary who are considerably better than he is.
“Rep. Steve Stockman told Breitbart News he traveled to Russia, Egypt, Israel and England as part of an official congressional delegation and ripped the media for what he described as a made-up story about his absence from Congress and his Texas district.”
-This may be your point.-
“Stockman said the purpose of the trip was to discuss issues relating to terrorism with foreign governments and said the group of lawmakers met with the President of Egypt and a top-ranking general in Israel.”
“Though the group of five House members had been scheduled to meet with Vladimir Putin, the Russian President canceled because of meetings in Davos, Stockman said.?”
I had not seen anything about this trip by any US MSM news sources. Which is not uncommon.
Thanks for that link.
I am not surprised at Cornyn, he knows he is in deep trouble.
His own doing.
Stockman’s fact-finding tour is appropriate for House Members interested in getting better info than a WhiteyHut slant.
My concern is that Stockman either is not really interested in the Senate or has some large unrealistic expectations on grassroots propelling him without a serious campaign.
Cornyn ain’t DoWorst, whomever is writing his radio ads is real good. It is not going to be easy to kick him out.
Maybe Stockman is working with the theory that with a herd running in the Primary against Cornyn, its a given there will be a runoff and THEN Stockman will get serious on the campaign.
I prescribe to the old axiom that if you want something you need to work toward it. Good rarely just falls on you like manna from Heaven.
I would rather vote for Stovall, but after the Primary we will have to see how the electibility issue plays out.
Stockman has some legit baggage or enough pretence of baggage for the press to slam him. Stovall is not well know, but it a very good candidate on the basis of his integrity.
Cornyn’s ads are pure nonsense to people who know is record.
He is saying all the right thing, but he is none of what he says he is. FACT.
Third Banker, Former Fed Member, “Found Dead” Inside A Week
This really should be a separate thread.
Still Stockman needs to TRY.
Bring out Your Dead Banker Ping
You do know that you posted a week old story that has been debunked?
All Righty Then.
Yes, I think I saw that. Was wondering if the folks in the banking community know something we don’t.
High Crimes that are seldom prosecuted, seem to come from a limited number of occupations. I am content to be away from most of those jobs.
As far as electability, that is in every way a non issue.
Because Cornyn is more damaging in the Senate than a Democrat could be so if he hangs on to the nomination many people will vote for a write in or third party candidate.
The very best kind of friends when primaries roll around.
Ads are rarely directed toward voters who are familiar with a candidate or especially his record.
In a political sense, “saying the right things” regardless of fact wins elections. Facts without a good message go nowhere.
So today Stockman is suing a Cornyn backing PAC for using detrimental facts he previously admitted to?????? Great campaign strategy Steve.
I am moving rapidly toward Stovall, Stockman is getting too flakey.
Well, I did not know that. Guess I was focused on too few subjects lately.
Had I known it I would not have posted it.
I simply did a search to see if my title had previously posted.
My interest in this was only about the possibility that news connecting Obama to the MB takeover in the Middle East and the Benghazi attack might come from this.
Guess in the future before I post I should do a little more homework on similar articles posted.
Maybe they know something like Matt Drudge does.
Matt Drudge Issues Warning: Have an Exit Plan
That is why I said it would apply “after” the Primary. Assuming Cornyn is defeated in the primary.
I agree with the right friends from the photo.
It already is. There has been a separate thread for each of the mysteriously dead bankers , here on FR, for the past week.
Egyptians walking all over the place.....They were everywhere!
I don't understand this thread at all. Not one reader has posted the fact that Steve was at the State of the Disunion speech the other night, and made headlines by walking out in the middle of it in disgust at Ooozebama's lies.
Is everyone asleep this morning?
Yes, I saw that elsewhere, but missed the FR thread with it.
Matt does have a nose for news events.
MSM is nothing but lies.
My point in posting the article was possible info that might come out of the trip about Benghazi & Egypt concerning Obama and the MB Terrorists.
I DID NOT post it as Breaking News.
Why are re-posting this old HIT-PIECE article?
I think the reason thighness let that horrible pic of her & Monica’s boyfriend get published is she’s thrown in the towel based on what’s about to come out on her via Mrs. Morsi and General al-Sisi.
‘What difference does it make’ doesn’t work with 15K missing MANPADS.
It has been posted that TF posted a week old thread, and that the story was debunked.
Are you sleeping to, our did you not read the replies?
Good ads? Am I the only person who hears about Cornball standing up to Obama and pressing back and thinks...
I want a senator who will represent me, not twerk Obama.
I agree. But that admission also exposes the fact that the CIA & State Department were arming MB & al Qaeda in Libya, Syria and probably in Turkey.
Are they ready to have that exposed in the press? And all the other involvements there? I think not. But it may happen in spite of MSM media silence.
Well, Sorry. I did not know it was previously posted. I did check to see if it could be found by searching the posts before I posted it.
Was it this article? Or another similar that was actually previously posted?
