Trey Gowdy Voted NO on H.R. 4435: On Agreeing to the Amendment 13 to H.R. 4435 - To Prohibit Indefinite Detention

Trey Gowdy voted NO on the amendment to prohibit the indefinite military detention of any person detained under the Authorization for the Use of Military Force authority in the United States, its territories, or possessions by providing immediate transfer to a trial and proceedings by a court. It also would strike language that would provide for mandatory military custody of covered parties.

P.S. After all this time Gowdy still hasn't

told us in South Carolina (as he promised) who/what/why regarding SC citizens NSL's.

He's fooling a lot of people.

He almost had me fooled but, then I listened to the things he posted and realized he is the worst kind of politician. More like a carnival barker than anything else. People like that do a lot more harm than good.

Yes Nonna you've got it!

Gowdy is former Solicitor for my county, before that he was Solicitor for the county next door. Total Statist. How often does a leopard change its spots?

People are excited about him purely because he has an argumentative nature and is able to more easily button-hole liars than the untrained, not that he actually EVER accomplishes anything.

Actually, it was you, SC, who got me to look deeper

into that guy. You were right about him. Keep spreading the word and, hopefully, SC can find a real representative to replace him.

Thanks for helping me to open my eyes.

I went head to head with him over Bruce Fein/4th amendment

in a very public arena and he caught me in a trap and caused a "laughingstock" of neocons. Once I experienced his true spite after I had posed an honest, legitimate, constitutional question and his purposeful demeaning of me, I immediately wrote him off as wicked.

Here's the Bruce Fein (for C4L) video again just for anyone who never saw it:

That's what you can expect from a POS.

There are three film clips that I have posted on DP from time to time as a reminder for our community about what is important for us. One is the fabulous Hub McCann speech from "Secondhand Lions", another is from "Rocky Balboa" (here's the link for anyone who never even knew that was the last of the Rocky films: http://www.dailypaul.com/comment/3440189,)

and the one that I immediately thought of after reading your comment is from "Poolhall Junkies", which I think is perfect for you at this time: http://www.dailypaul.com/320806/you-watch-those-nature-docum... That speech by the Christopher Walken character is truly empowering.

Hope that helps.

Thank you Nonna, those were great, Walken made my stomach

quivery.

It appears you are also part of the "Molly Pitcher Posse":

Trey mentioned "rhetoric". Perhaps he should

look at this:

Righty-o

My blood boils every time I re-watch that video...
"he welcomes the questioning of authority"? Hysterical. Sure.
Now to decide between "useful idiot" or "conduit for evil"...

Is this a surprise

Trey Gowdy is not a liberty candidate. He makes his fame of belligerent opposition of Obama that gets the common Tea Partier riled up, but he is going to tow the line somewhere between Lindsey Graham and Jim Bridenstine. He would at least be a fellow traveler were he closer to Bridenstine.

Not many

Not many "tea-party'ers" look at records. They flock over this guy just like they do mike kelly and ben carson, and yes, they still talk about flip-flop mitt.

Spread the word, or in this case, the record.
