    Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) had a fiery exchange Thursday at an Iowa town hall with an attendee who asked whether he was a white nationalist. King also took umbrage at the questioner for drawing a link between King's rhetoric and the man accused of killing 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday. “The terrorist who committed this crime, he was quoted as saying, ‘they bring invaders in that kill our people, I can’t sit back and watch out people get slaughtered.’ You, Steve King, have been quoted as saying, ‘we can’t restore our civilization with other people’s babies.’ You...

"We take our civic responsibility seriously, want our contributions to be a positive force for good and also seek to ensure that recipients of our contributions uphold our company’s values. On that basis, we have determined...

    Jewish leaders from Iowa wrote a letter for the Des Moines Register Tuesday condemning Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) for white supremacist views. Alan Steckman, president of Adas Israel in Mason City and John Pleasants, president of Ames Jewish Congregation, explained that they felt the need to respond in the wake of Saturday's shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. The two criticized King for using "funds from a Holocaust education organization to meet with a notoriously anti-Semitic propaganda site" as "shocking beyond any previous outrage." They said that King's promotion of white supremacist ideology had previously gone unchallenged...

    Rep. Steve King posted a warning on Twitter Sunday evening that the U.S. is heading toward a second civil war, comparing the present day actions of the anti-Trump resistance to the run-up to the Civil War. King, an eight-term Congressman from Iowa, keyed off a PJ Media article about leftist protesters shutting down a Portland, Oregon ICE office and taking down the U.S. flag, replacing with an “Refugees Welcome” flag. “America is heading in the direction of another Harpers Ferry. After that comes Ft. Sumter.”

    Rep. Steve King (R-IA) told Breitbart News Tonight earlier this week that House Republicans are considering forcibly removing House Speaker Paul Ryan from the speakership via a “motion to vacate the chair” over Ryan’s efforts to undermine President Donald Trump’s agenda. ~~ Ryan claimed, falsely, to House Republican members recently in a conference meeting that the president did support the Ryan amnesty bill–something the president confirmed on Fox and Friends on Friday morning was not true. The president opposes the bill and Ryan’s continued claims that Trump did back the bill are now proven to be false.

    Rep. Steve King (Iowa) says his fellow House Republicans "are considering" removing Speaker Paul Ryan, who has announced he is retiring after this Congress.“It’s kind of odd that he has as much power as he has,” King said in an interview with Breitbart News Tonight released Friday. “But I do predict, and it is happening, that that power is diminishing. I also have got information that there are — I’ll say ‘members’ — I say that plurally, with knowledge, that are considering introducing a motion to vacate the chair,” King continued. “If they do that, that will throw this place...

    WASHINGTON DC (Kurdistan 24) - Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) spoke with Kurdistan 24 late on Thursday, following the Senate’s confirmation of Mike Pompeo as the new US Secretary of State. The Kurdistan independence referendum, King said, “should have been honored,” as he noted that 92 percent of voters had chosen independence. “The Kurdish people have earned their independence,” he continued, “by defending themselves and by defending others who needed their defense,” in both Iraq and Syria. “They have a unique language, unique culture” and are a “people tied together” by a common bond. Kurdistan “was the only” area in Iraq,...

    Rep.

King told Breitbart News Sunday about the incoming omnibus spending bill that Congress has to pass before this Friday. King declared: Well, this method of governing is just so messy that it puts any member of Congress in a position where maybe you can pick one thing and then beat the drum to try to keep that from getting slipped in there....

    “Look at all of these investigations now,” said King. “Look closely for Barack Obama’s fingerprints. I’ve just identified some that I think are fingerprints, and I think this trail leads to the Obama presidency, to Barack Obama himself, but it’s going to take some time if we get there, and I’m not certain that the evidence trail necessarily leads there. There’s an indication trail that says we need to take a look and find out. But if it’s not Barack Obama, then who is it? Well, it’s Loretta Lynch, for example, and James Comey, and McCabe, and that cast of...

    Watch closely for Barack Obama’s fingerprints,” said Rep. Steve King (R-IA) on Saturday, suggesting the recent alleged partisan weaponization of state surveillance powers could be connected to the 44th president. “[Democrats and their allies] will defend Barack Obama at all costs, and they’ll defend Hillary Clinton almost at all costs unless they have to sacrifice her to protect Barack Obama,” he added.

    Release the Memo from the depth of the bottom of the Swamp and remember the words of Steve King if the muck of Redaction makes it indiscernible It will be nothing short of a miracle if the names of rogue FBI agents and DOJ officials are spelled out in the FISA Memo expected to be released later today. If the memo is redacted, it won’t be reading glasses but remembering the words of Rep. Steve King that will matter. King, if you will, already released the Memo, condemning its shocking contents as “worse than Watergate” on Jan. 18, 2018.

    As negotiations are underway between the White House and establishment Republicans to potentially give amnesty to illegal aliens, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is warning the president against such any plan that includes amnesty. In a post on Sunday, King—a staunch pro-American immigration reformer who has long opposed mass immigration—urged Trump to steer clear of a plan that would begin with giving amnesty to nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. According to King, such an amnesty deal, even if it is coupled with a plan to reduce legal immigration...

    Republican Congressman Steve King says census-takers in 2020 should ask if people living in the United States are citizens. “We need to be counting citizens instead of people for the purposes of redistricting,” King says. “That’s going to take at a minimum a statute and it may take a constitutional amendment and so in this upcoming Census, I want to count separately the citizens separate from the non-citizens, the lawfully present Americans separate from the illegal aliens that are here so that America can see how bad this is.” King says if the Census is conducted as he proposes, Iowa...

    Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said that diversity is no America's strength in a pair of tweets Friday. King linked to an article by the Voice of Europe Friday that quoted Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban saying that cultures shouldn’t be mixed, arguing that it’s “against common sense.” King tweeted the story with the message, “Diversity is not our strength.” “Assimilation has become a dirty word to the multiculturalist Left. Assimilation, not diversity, is our American strength,” he tweeted. King, one of the most vocal critics of immigration in Congress, has made controversial statements in the past, including praise for far-right...
