ALG praises Gohmert, Sessions for cosponsoring Article One supplemental

Posted on February 4, 2016 in Press Releases

Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today praised U.S. Representatives Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and Pete Sessions (R-Texas) for being early cosponsors of the Consolidated Appropriations Amendments of 2016 offered by U.S. Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.):

“The surest, most effective way to stop Obama's continued usurpation of congressional authority is to defund those overreaching regulations and executive actions using Congress' power of the purse.

“Representative Louie Gohmert has long been a stalwart supporter of protecting Congress’ constitutional role in government from President Obama’s many egregious overreaches. Louie’s decision to throw his significant political clout behind the Buck bill opens the door wide for dozens of others to join him in co-sponsoring.

Rep. Louie Gohmert to Speak at Conservative Review’s Conservative Convention

Posted on February 3, 2016 in Press Releases

Washington, D.C. -- Today, Conservative Review announced that Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX, 96% A) will be speaking at its Conservative Convention in advance of the GOP South Carolina Primary. Gohmert, who is one of only a handful of members invited to speak, is not only a sound constitutional conservative and a vote for conservative principles, but is a voice for them is well—a rare find on Capitol Hill. 

“It is quite an honor to be invited to address Conservative Review’s Inaugural convention. Just days before the South Carolina GOP Primary, this gathering of conservative leaders and thinkers will surely have a significant effect on that critically important primary. Mark Levin and Michelle Malkin are fervent friends, fearless fighters, and bright beacons for American liberty. I look forward to joining them, along with the other remarkable guests, at the convention, where we will stand strongly for our rights recorded in the United States Constitution,” said Rep. Louie Gohmert.

Gohmert added, “It seems the more I stand up for our East Texas values in our country on important national platforms, the more some naysayers criticize and insult me. But the liberties and opportunities of our nation are in grave danger of being lost, so I welcome the opportunity to speak and stand for the principles that the vast majority of East Texans hold dear. Being asked to speak to huge crowds in the same venue as the candidates for President is an honor and is obviously because our East Texas values and principles resonate with concerned Americans, since we know I’m not being invited because of my looks or the way I talk.”

"Louie is among the rarest of gems in Congress. He has never wavered in his support for constitutional values and they have gotten stronger since coming to Washington,” said Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin.

“On behalf of the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, it is my great honor and privilege to announce our endorsement of my dear friend, Rep. Louie Gohmert, in his bid for reelection in Texas’ First Congressional District.

“Louie is a trusted and reliable ally of the Tea Party because he does not shy away from standing up for America’s founding principles against the Washington establishment.

Louie has continued to earn the respect of grassroots activists because he champions the fundamental principles laid out in the Constitution.

“Louie Gohmert has consistently and fearlessly represented the views of his constituents against the Washington establishment and deserves their support.”

Because Our Home Town HeroFights for His Country, We Endorse His Re-Election

Posted on January 27, 2016 in Press Releases

TYLER, TX - Grassroots America – We the People, the largest constitutional conservative organization in East Texas and one of the largest in the state, thanks U. S. Representative Louie Gohmert for his courage in leading a revolt against former Speaker John Boehner. Because of Congressman Gohmert’s courage in speaking the truth about Boehner’s abandonment of conservative principles and his feckless response to President Obama’s lawlessness, Boehner finally came under enough pressure to step down.

Some of Rep. Gohmert’s critics like to say that Louie isn’t effective because he doesn’t pass a lot of bills, and he’s not a politician who “brings home the bacon.” That’s just fine with us. 

Due to Rep. Gohmert’s plainspoken candor, the American people know much more about the inner workings of the U. S. House because Louie refuses to cover up for the GOP. Instead, he leads the charge to oppose Big Government Republicans who participate in the shredding of the Constitution, growing the $19trillion federal debt, and keeping in place the security risk of a wide-open southern border. Rep. Gohmert stands with Senator Ted Cruz to battle the Washington Cartel and speaks out about the threat of radical Islam. That’s what we call principled, effective leadership.

Wade Miller of Heritage Action said this about Rep. Gohmert as he awarded Louie the Heritage Sentinel Award: "Congressman Gohmert has been relentless in fighting for conservative values for Texans. He has faithfully voted to rein in federal overspending, has rigorously pushed to advance federalism, and has consistently opposed the faulty policies of the executive administration. Gohmert has been leading on issue after issue and continues to be a steadfast conservative bulwark against progressivism. For maintaining a score above 90% (a 93%) on our conservative Scorecard, Rep. Gohmert is one of the few who qualified as a ‘Sentinel’ Representative last Congress.” 

Grassroots America’s Executive Director JoAnn Fleming, “Congressman Gohmert is a proven constitutional conservative leader who has kept his promises. He does what is right – even when he must stand alone. Louie Gohmert is a light shining in the darkness of Washington, D.C. Without reservation, we strongly endorse Louie Gohmert for re-election to the First Congressional District of Texas.”
