Welcome From Louie
TYLER, TEXAS—U.S. Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) filed paperwork today to be on the ballot for re-election as Representative from the First District of Texas and issued the following release:
“It has been my promise to east Texans to stand up for Constitutional liberties that have been trampled on by previous administrations. For a number of years now, the battle to protect us from our own government’s improper intrusions has been vicious as has been the name-calling against those of us who have defended our liberties and asserted our moral obligation not to overwhelm future generations with our own debt. Although we have finally begun to make inroads in restoring the best principles and ideals our Founders enshrined in our Constitution, the battle continues. That is why I am filing for re-election as your representative in our nation’s capital. It has been my privilege to stand up and speak up for east Texas common sense values in Washington, D.C. I humbly ask for the support of my east Texas neighbors as we continue to fight for the views that are the mainstream, rank and file opinions in east Texas.”
Gohmert’s Statement on the 2016 Presidential ElectionPosted on November 9, 2016 in Press Releases
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement regarding the results of the historic 2016 Presidential Election last night:
“The Election Results in Congressional District 1 are in, and I am so exceedingly humbled to get to serve the greatest people in any Congressional district in the country.”
“At the same time, we now know that Donald Trump will be President and the Republicans will still have a majority in the House and the Senate. That means the Republican leadership’s ideas about legislation in the upcoming lame duck session needs to be scaled back to bare minimums until our new President and the newly elected Congress members get sworn in.”
“It also means that we can finally have proper investigations into the governmental fiascos that have gotten people killed. If we had taken control of our border sooner and kept criminals out, at least one Smith County ten year old would still be alive today.”
“As I have said before, Donald Trump is not our salvation, but his election means we have one more chance to get our country back on track before it is too late for the upcoming generation.”

Gohmert's Statement on Republican Presidential Nominee Donald TrumpPosted on October 14, 2016 in Press Releases
"In his days as a Democrat funder and his friendship with Bill Clinton, Donald Trump’s language was extremely inappropriate, even though Barrack Obama can be seen on video using the same exact language. I knew Donald Trump had such a background, and anticipate there are more atrocious comments in his storied background to be revealed which the mainstream media has been waiting to publicize til October. That’s a reason I didn’t support him in the primary.
Trump did not sell his country to our enemies, unlike Hillary who has become enriched by, among other things, accommodating the sale of U.S. uranium to Russia. Russia is increasing their nuclear arsenal while ours is deteriorating, but got millions rather than the standard 30 pieces of silver.
Dr. James Dobson tells me Trump truly has become a Christian, though obviously with a lot to learn. It was a huge step for him to accept my request that he sit down with my friend, Ted Cruz, and work things out. He did and is making real progress.
I also know that people have 4 choices: (1) vote for Hillary; (2) vote for Trump; (3) vote for a someone besides these two; or (4) don’t vote. Three of those four choices elect Hillary who supports our killing of 1.2 million more babies a year. Previously I would say “unborn babies” but in a recent hearing, we found no Democrats to support a bill that made it illegal to kill a child born alive after an attempted abortion.
Hillary staunchly condemns those who follow Moses’ and Jesus’ teaching on marriage and will push even further than the Supreme Court already has until marriage becomes what it was “in the days of Noah” before the flood. That’s rather dangerous.
If Hillary is elected, the Supreme Court decision declaring a Constitutional right for an American to own a gun in a 5 to 4 decision, will go the other way. So will many other cases that protected our religious and speech freedoms. Because of these facts, I do condemn Donald Trump’s past language, but will do everything I can legally and ethically to see he is elected as President instead of Hillary Clinton. If he is not elected, subpoenaing sermon notes as happened in Houston is a drop in the bucket to what is coming."
