    Kurdistan 24 (K24) ^ | 4-28-18 | Laurie Mylroie
    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. Steve King (R-IA) told Breitbart News Sunday hosts Matthew Boyle and Amanda House that Congress should fund the wall in the ensuing omnibus spending battle, saying, “Let’s fund the whole wall and let’s build it all.” 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.

It is shocking,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Fox News. “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to...

    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...

    As you may already know, a Democratic IT staffer named Imran Awan was arrested this past July on charges of bank fraud. He was employed with Debbie Wasserman Shultz and other congressional members. He is also a suspect in a cybersecurity investigation, having been banned from congressional networks in February. In addition, his relatives, also government IT employees, are currently being investigated for alleged involvement in defrauding the federal government as well as compromising sensitive information from congressional servers.

    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...

    Multiple reports have detailed the equipment and nearly $6 million a Pakistani family of IT specialists allegedly took from the U.S. government while running computer networks for numerous congressional Democrats. But that’s only money and equipment, says a U.S. congressman who contends that the biggest problem is the classified information to which the Awan family had access. The taxpayers’ dollars confiscated from Congress is “not the highest of our concerns,” Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, told WND in an interview about the case of IT staffer Imran Awan, his brothers Abid and Jamal, and their wives Natalia Sova and Hina Alvi.

    The House GOP's staunchest opponent of illegal immigration said President Trump is now at risk of losing his base of supporters after supposedly cutting a deal to legalize more than 800,000 young people who arrived in the United States illegally as children. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said he stands by a Wednesday night tweet that proclaimed Trump's base "is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair," after he dined with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The two Democrats left the White House proclaiming they had reached a deal with Trump on...

    King tweeted the following after the Associated Press (AP) and other outlets reported that the president told Democrats he wanted a “quick” amnesty for the 800,000 plus illegal aliens he acted to removed protections from on September 5: Steve King @RealDonaldTrump If AP is correct, Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair. No promise is credible. King, a long-time immigration hawk, told Breitbart News Washington political editor Matt Boyle that an amnesty move like the one onto which Trump reportedly signed Wednesday was “Republican suicide.” That assessment came just after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the...

    Rep. Steve King (R-IA) talked about the ever-worsening scandal surrounding Imran Awan and his ex-employer Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Breitbart New’s Whatever it Takes with Curt Schilling Wednesday. The Pakistan-born longtime congressional Democratic IT consultant was arrested by federal authorities as he tried to flee the country Tuesday, sending hundreds of thousands of dollars ahead of himself to Pakistan. Rep. King, a staunch conservative and ally of populist nationalism, stressed that the facts are anything but clear at this stage. The surface narrative itself was suspisious enough for King even before getting into the extensive criminal allegations against Awan...

    Frontpage Magazine ^ | March 31, 2017 | Matthew Vadum
    Pseudo-conservative Foreign Policy blogger Max Boot is making the outrageous claim that the entire Republican Party has been taken over by a dangerous racist fringe. Boot’s insane argument rests on one core contention: that because Republicans tolerate, even like, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), a patriot and a truly courageous conservative champion, their party has therefore fallen into the hands of white nationalists. The fact that King isn’t actually a white nationalist or a racist, which is the real thing Boot is accusing the lawmaker of, in no way hinders the writer from making his pitch. Nor does the unbalanced Boot...

    Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is in trouble with the Political Correctness Commissars and the usual cowardly Republicans etc.—not for the first (or even the tenth) time—because of his Sunday tweet: “[Dutch anti-immigration politician Geert] Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” Of course what King said is entirely defensible. But the paroxysms he has provoked says gigabytes about our post-American political class. In his harrumphing interrogation of King on CNN Monday morning, Chris Cuomo said: “It seemed like… you were trying to say someone else’s babies means you’re either...

    Iowa Republican, Steve King attracted criticism after posting a tweet which read the following: “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” The statement is open ended, mildly confusing, and leaves a plethora of room for interpretation. King would have done well to clarify exactly what people he believes falls into the category of ‘somebody else’s babies.’ People who fall under the category of immigrants appears as the most likely match for ‘somebody else’s babies.’ Nonetheless, King’s tweet was in response to a Dutch parliamentarian who aspires to close all Mosques and ban the Quran.

    Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), a conservative came under fire Sunday for the commentary he attached to a tweet about far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders. Critics on social media contend King's Twitter post is racist and implies civilization can't improve if it's populated with babies of immigrants, specifically Muslims. Mr Wilders, who met past year with Mr King and who travelled to Washington in 2015 at Mr King's invitation to discuss Islam, is among a number of politicians in Europe who have sparked controversy with their views on race and culture. The tweet raised several questions for some - whose babies...
