  • Why I Am Boycotting Pope Francis’ Address to Congress

    09/18/2015 9:45:02 PM PDT · by Impy · 24 replies ^ | 9-17-15 | Congressman Paul Gosar
    It is difficult to convey the excitement I first felt when it was revealed that His Holiness Pope Francis was invited to Washington D.C. to address the world from the floor of the House of Representatives. Many believed, like I did, that this was an opportunity for the Pope to be one of the world’s great religious advocates and address the current intolerance of religious freedom. An opportunity to urgently challenge governments to properly address the persecution and execution of Christians and religious minorities; to address the heinous and senseless murders committed by ISIS and other terrorist organizations. An opportunity...
  • More Republicans Say They Won’t Support Boehner For Speaker

    week’s vote. The latest Republican to announce plans to oppose Boehner is Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar, who made public his intentions in a Sunday evening statement. “Trust is a series of promises kept; my vote for new leadership reflects a promise I made to voters when they elected me,” Gosar said. “I cannot stand beside the same leadership that has offered up bills too large to read, used parliamentary tricks to bring bills to the floor and has refused to take swift action against the president and his administration’s unconstitutional actions.” The official speaker’s election is set for Tuesday, when...
  • GOP Rep: Eric Holder Needs to Re-Read Constitution

    05/14/2013 10:09:24 AM PDT · by servo1969 · 23 replies ^ | 5-13-2013 | Matthew Boyle
    Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) told Breitbart News he thinks Attorney General Eric Holder needs a refresher course on the U.S. Constitution in the wake of reports that the Department of Justice secretly obtained two months of the Associated Press's phone records. Gosar expressed concerns that President Barack Obama’s “enemies list” continues to grow, especially in light of revelations that the IRS targeted conservative and Tea Party organizations. “On one hand, I am encouraged to hear that the Attorney General obtained warrants first. Score one for the Fourth Amendment,” Gosar said in an email. “But I remain concerned about the First...

    Daily Caller ^ | 6/29/12 | Matthew Boyle
    Arizona Republican Rep. Paul Gosar – one of the leaders of the congressional inquiry into Operation Fast and Furious – told The Daily Caller he hopes Attorney General Eric Holder gets the message Congress sent him by holding him in criminal and civil contempt of Congress: give up the documents. On Thursday the U.S. House of Representatives voted on a bipartisan basis to hold Holder in both criminal and civil contempt of Congress. Despite shrieks of partisan motivations from some Democratic leaders, more Democrats voted in favor of holding Holder in contempt than Republicans voted for President Barack Obama’s health...

    Email from GOA | Jan 3, 2012 | Gun Owners of America
    Representative Paul Gosar (R-AZ) recently introduced a resolution expressing “no confidence” in the Attorney General of the United States for his role in the Fast and Furious scandal. Attorney General Eric Holder has been hauled before Congress multiple times to explain a government operation that led to thousands of firearms going to violent drug cartels in Mexico, and which have turned up at crime scenes on both sides of the border. Holder initially denied knowing about the operation before admitting that “mistakes” were made, yet he remains uncooperative with Congress’s efforts to get to the bottom of the gunrunning scheme....
  • Fast and Furious 'Flawed From the Start': An Interview With Rep. Paul Gosar

    08/20/2011 6:41:53 AM PDT · by marktwain · 12 replies ^ | 19 August, 2011 | Dave Workman
    For nearly two years, Operation Fast and Furious largely took place under the radar. And itÂ’s arguable that it would still be unknown to the majority of Americans had not Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry been gunned down with a weapon traceable to Fast and Furious on December 14, 2010. That death changed the complexion of everything by drawing attention to the fact that there are indeed weapons at large that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) allowed straw purchasers to buy and distribute among the criminal element in our society and throughout Mexico. Following TerryÂ’s death,...
  • AZ Dem congresswoman issues panicked campaign email

    09/29/2010 11:00:26 AM PDT · by inkling · 21 replies ^ | Sept. 28, 2010 | Jon
    Embattled Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-Ariz., CD1) has sent out a truly bizarre fund-raising e-mail which shows the panic over-taking her campaign. The message starts with news of Kirkpatrick's impending defeat, followed by the start of a Kirkpatrick concession speech the day after the November election. While most candidates – especially incumbents – put on a brave face and at least feign confidence, the pro-stimulus, pro-Obamacare Kirkpatrick is all but conceding the race to her grassroots challenger, Dr. Paul Gosar. I've included the email below in its entirety (HTML email at the link)
