Straight talk from Jim Jordan

by Fr. Mark Hodges, reporter

The Horn News caught up with Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, a Republican and leading member of the Freedom Caucus, and got answers on why he says next week’s election is a must-win for conservatives.

At a meeting of the city Chamber of Commerce in Lima, Ohio, Jordan came out swinging.

“This election, the choice for the American people is crystal clear. The differences (between Republicans and Democrats) couldn’t be clearer,” Jordan said.

The sixth-term congressman addressed taxes, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), ObamaCare, First Amendment freedoms under attack, a U.S. border security wall, and the illegal caravan of thousands organized to invade the country.

“What Democrats are going to do if they take control is they are going to try to raise people’s taxes,” he predicted. “They are going to work to abolish ICE and have an open border.”

And if Democrats win this midterm election November sixth, “they will expand ObamaCare,” which has become a federal black hole sucking tax dollars and piling up national debt.

“We have to replace ObamaCare with a patient-centered, family-centered, doctor-centered approach to healthcare,” the Ohio Fourth District Representative emphasized.

“Never forget…the lies of ObamaCare — many of them said by the former president himself —

  • You like your plan, you can keep your plan.
  • You like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.
  • Premiums are going to decline.
  • Premiums are going to decline 2500 dollars on average.
  • Deductables will go down.
  • They even told us the website was going to work.  Remember that?
  • They told us the website was secure.
  • The co-ops that they created –20 some of them– were going to be wonderful, (yet) every single one of them went bankrupt.”

“Everything they told us about ObamaCare turned out to be false,” Jordan concluded. “That’s why we’ve got to replace it with a model that actually empowers families, empowers individuals and lets them shop for the kind of insurance and care that fits their needs.”

“If you go to a patient-centered model versus a government-centered model, you’re going to get lower cost and better care,” Jordan added.

Jordan is running against Democrat challenger Janet Garrett, a former teacher turned liberal activist. She also spoke to the Lima Chamber of Commerce.

Garrett said that if elected she would seek Medicare “for all,” expanding ObamaCare and making the government bigger. “I don’t think the Affordable Care Act went anywhere near far enough,” she told The Findlay Courier.

Congressman Jordan warned that our nation is in danger of losing fundamental freedoms, including freedom of speech and religious freedom. As an example, he told the Chamber about a confrontation he had while serving on the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

In a committee hearing, Jordan inquired about so-called “safe spaces” on campus.

“In a ‘safe space,’ could you say this sentence: ‘Donald Trump is president,’” Jordan asked a college professor.

The professor responded, “Well, it depends…”

“Simply stating a fact on a university campus – where students go to learn facts – could get you into trouble,” Jordan told the Lima Chamber.

Jordan also noted that under Obama, the Internal Revenue Service systematically targeted American citizens because of their conservative beliefs.

Jordan serves on the Committee on the Judiciary, including a subcommittee on the Internet. He said social media companies like Facebook and Google have become the biggest threat to conservative speech. He listed many examples of internet accounts –personal, ideological, and political– which have been deleted or banned.

Even Jordan was “shadow banned” by Twitter, along with three other House conservatives.

Shadow banning is a deceptive practice of social media companies. They make it look like your account is just fine, but they secretly block all your tweets and posts so no one else can see them.

“Twitter claimed it was just a glitch in the company’s algorithm, but there are 535 members in Congress, and only four conservatives were shadow banned,” Jordan pointed out. He then quipped, “What was the ‘glitch’ in the algorithm? Our four names?” to laughter from the crowd.

The Horn asked Jordan specifically about the huge group of 7,000-10,000 migrants staged to invade the U.S.

“It just underscores why we need a border security wall,” the sixth-term congressman told The Horn. “Every sovereign nation has a right to control their border and know what’s happening on their border –that’s part of the definition of being a nation,” he explained. The migrant caravan “just underscores why we’re going to do that.”

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions called the caravans, which are organized and supported by the open borders group People Without Borders, “a deliberate attempt to undermine our laws and overwhelm our system.”

Jordan added that a border wall would help slow down the nation’s drug epidemic.

“The best thing the government can do to help is… actually secure our border,” he explained. “Do you think the fentanyl is being manufactured in Ohio?  No, it’s being manufactured overseas and being brought into the country, smuggled through our border.”

“We build a border security wall, we not only help with the drug problem, we help with the human trafficking problem, and the gang violence problem.”

The Washington Examiner calls Jordan “a dream candidate for those looking to drain the swamp” of compromising establishment politicians. Numerous times, Jordan has stood up to those in power — even of his own party — to protect free speech, a free press, and religious liberty.

“Too many forget what they were elected for,” Jordan jabbed. “Our job is to do what we told the American people we would do. I have done that and will continue to do that.”

Jordan also defended President Trump, saying, “In just two years, regulations reduced, taxes lowered, Gorsuch is on the court, Kavanaugh is on the court, the economy is growing at a rapid rate, unemployment at its lowest in nearly fifty years, we’re out of that crazy Iran deal, the embassy is in Jerusalem, and the hostages have been returned from North Korea,” the Speaker-Hopeful rattled off. “By anyone’s definition, the president’s accomplishments have been amazing.”

Jordan’s Democratic opponent repeatedly emphasized, “I am running because I care.  I will always care.” She focused on healthcare, but failed to mention the millions of exceptions to that concern, such as preborn American children. Garrett is a longtime pro-abortion extremist.

Garrett lost to Jordan the past three elections. This time she is paying hefty sums for negative ads to ridicule her opponent — including depicting him as a Muppet. The Horn News asked Jordan specifically about Garrett’s desperate Kavanaugh-esque hit pieces against him.

“I think everyone sees through all that,” Jordan told The Horn. “We’re talking to voters about what we’re going to do, and you don’t hear from us the negative talk. We’re doing positive ads.”

In the last election, Jordan beat Garrett by more than 2-to-1. But recently, Garrett received a flood of campaign donations from liberals across the country, such as actor William Baldwin.  TV host Chelsea Handler is also a vocal Garrett supporter on social media.

When asked about possibly becoming Speaker of the House, Jordan replied, “The main thing in the next 13 days is to keep the (Republican) majority. We have to get the majority on election day, so I’m trying to help our candidates all over the country.”

“But if we win, I’m running for Speaker,” Jordan pledged. “I’m not the favorite, but I’m running because I think we’ve got to do what we can.”

As President Donald Trump called Jordan to the podium at a recent rally, the huge crowd cheered and chanted, “Speaker of the House!  Speaker of the House!”

Adam Brandon of the Examiner commented, “A Jordan speakership would bring the legislative process out into the open… Supporting his candidacy should be an obvious choice for (those) who believe in the values of individual liberty.”

Elizabeth Warren BUSTED with illegal cash

While Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Democrat, was preparing to fight the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last month, she was also asking for illegal donations from her supporters — and critics say it was the same as soliciting bribes.

And she didn’t act alone.

California Sen. Kamala Harris, Democrat, joined Warren in the alleged “vote-buying” scheme, according to the nonpartisan ethics watchdog group Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT).

FACT submitted a formal complaint to the Senate Ethics Committee on Monday regarding Warren and Harris’ allegedly illegal actions.

Senate ethic rules strictly forbid elected officials from “cashing in” on their votes before they happen. But that didn’t stop Warren and Harris from reportedly soliciting thousands of voters for cash in exchange for their vote, FACT claimed.

Warren denied any knowledge of her campaign’s allegedly illegal fundraising efforts, and acted surprised when told there was an ethics investigation into her actions during a recent debate.

Her name was signed at the bottom of the email in question.

“Something that we found out recently that is pretty unconscionable is that Sen. Warren was fundraising illegally using the vote on Justice Kavanaugh — the confirmation vote — to try to raise money for her campaigns,” Republican senatorial candidate Geoff Diehl, who is running against Warren, said during a recent debate.

“That is something you should not be doing when we are having a national discussion about the Supreme Court … but you did, and turns out it’s illegal,” he said.

A formal criminal investigation into the fundraising tactics of both Warren and Harris could be ordered based on the complaint.

“Ms. Warren’s email said she was demanding a delay on the judge’s confirmation vote and asked for donations for her 2018 election campaign, while Ms. Harris’s emails detailed several of her actions as a member of the Judiciary Committee, including her questioning of the president’s pick for the high court, and asking for contributions,” The Washington Timesreported.

Asking for money upfront as a measure of support for a senators vote?

That’s a big no-no, says the watchdog group.

Warren attempted “to gain considerable campaign income as well as important donor information by promising to use their official position as a Senator,” said Kendra Arnold, executive director of FACT.

“This is a clear violation of the Senate Ethics rules which safeguard against the appearance or actuality of elected officials ‘cashing in’ on their official position for political purposes,” Arnold said.

Quote of the day

“EXAMINE THE NATURE OF UNBORN AWARENESS.”

Now you know what awareness is. You have known this transcendental awareness where objects and subjects are no more existential. You have known for the first time this purity, this crystal-clear mirror. Now examine the nature of this awareness.

Look into it, look deep into it. Shake yourself into as full alertness as possible. Wake up and see! And you will start laughing — because now you will see there has never been a birth, and there is never going to be a death.

This is unborn and undying consciousness. It has always been here. It is eternal, it is timeless. And how afraid you were of death, and how afraid you were of old age, and how afraid you were of a thousand and one things! And nothing has ever happened: all was a dream.

Seeing this, one smiles, one laughs. Your whole life up to now has been ridiculous, absurd. You were unnecessarily afraid, unnecessarily greedy, unnecessarily suffering.

You were living in a nightmare and it was your own creation.

Criminal Conspiracy? QUI BONO? Suspicious Terrorist Act in Kerch, Crimea, with mass casualties

Futurist Trendcast

Per latest I’ve heard, the death toll has climbed to 21 at the site of the tragedy of the Kerch Polytechical College. This is a very suspicious act, which at the very least begs a lot of questions. It’s very hard to imagine that a sole 18-year-old madman could execute a successful act of such magnitude. How he was helped and by whom, that’s a different question… Russian police also has expressed a doubt this could possibly be an act of a sole madman.

There seems to be a shadow of those who are very experienced and determined to cause harm to Russia, seen behind him.

This is an all out war against Russia the Great Balancer, as she continues trying to shift the world to a more equitable state as part of the Earth Shift.

I also want to remind everyone about this diabolic, yet symbolic, coincidence! The…
