Entry Title Date
Israel Threats April 27, 2016
Ted Poe, R-TX
"And that’s just the way it is."
The Week In Review April 21, 2016
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"So I have no doubt that someday, maybe, some Iranian will kill me; but somebody will be here on the floor, if the Capitol still exists, and will point out that this deal that Obama and Kerry and Wendy Sherman did with Iran, in allowing them to move forward with nuclear activity, providing them with $100 billion or so to start off, hundreds of billions in the future, that they ended up lying when they said they agreed, initially, to the agreement—even though they have said publicly: We are not going to abide by it—that they ended up using results from the Obama administration’s treaty to develop nuclear weapons, and that, just like the Clinton-Albright-Sherman deal with North Korea, the Obama-Kerry-Sherman deal with Iran has resulted in Iran having nukes sooner than they would have otherwise, despite the promises previously by the Obama administration to prevent Iran from having nukes. Actually, they helped them get the nukes."
America’S Small Business Tax Relief Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed April 6, 2016
Harry Reid, D-NV
"When you have a sharply political, divisive hearing process, it increases the danger that whoever comes out of it will be viewed in these terms… . It’s natural for some member of the public to think you must be identified in a particular way as a result of that process. And that’s just not how—we don’t work as Democrats or Republicans. I think it’s a very unfortunate perception the public might get from the confirmation process."
Ahmadiyya-Indonesia March 22, 2016
Ted Poe, R-TX
"The rights of all Indonesian citizens, regardless of their religious beliefs, should be protected. The right to worship is not a right granted by man but by our Creator. And that’s just the way it is."
Support For H. Res. 551 February 26, 2016
Ted Poe, R-TX
"And that’s just the way it is. "
