Today:

Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Joe Biden saying the Second Amendment is a “phony argument” – which about sums up his view of the Constitution in general
[….]
12:24 PM · Apr 8, 2021

As always, there is much hilarity in the responses:

How does what Biden did invalidate the 2nd Amendment?

While you are at it, why do we ban almost all civilians from owning a machine gun? Is it a phony argument that this ban is not supported by the 2nd Amendment?

Tell us, Josh.

What does well-regulated mean.

Whatever the NRA tells him it means.

Even in the 2nd Amendment, The word “regulated” appears several times in the US Constitution. Its meaning is clear.
Inciting insurrection is yet another matter and you are
#GuiltyAF Josh Hawley!

Tfw well regulated militia means nothing to you
[….]

You should watch this again because that’s NOT what he said.

You obviously believe the Constitution is a phony argument as you were a leader of the terrorist attack on January 6. I guess the saying “It takes one to know one” is true.

Well REGULATED militia. Y’all seem to forget that part all the them. Thank goodness Biden doesn’t.

That’s not what he said but nice try with the clip out of context for more fear mongering. Doing nothing isn’t working
[….]

When did he EVER refer to the whole constitution? He speaking about the 2nd amendment and gun laws, don’t twist his words

Josh here doesn’t understand the concept of militia apparently.

…said a guy who literally incited an armed seige of his own government.

Senators that are owned by the gun lobby & incite insurrections can sit this one out

even Scalia said the Second Amendment was not absolute and gun ownership could be regulated.

Were you upholding the constitution when you invited a mob to invade the Capitol resulting in 6 deaths?

“Josh Hawley: The Face of New American Fascism”

“Hawley was the first senator to announce his plan to oppose the certification of Biden’s Electoral College win. Hawley’s action was “motivated by ambition” & to be the first member of the “Sedition Caucus”
[….]

you’re putting words he didn’t say in @potuss mouth and you know it full well

@POTUS said that no constitutional provision is absolute, and furthermore that he’s not doing anything contrary to the 2nd Amendment

Why do Republicans have such an aversion to the truth?

Why aren’t you in prison for sedition yet?

Don’t you ever get tired of misleading the American people Josh? Because we’re sure tired of it.
And we’ll never forget 1/6/21.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Admitting you’re part of a militia may NOT be in your best interests right now Joshy.

The new phrase appears to be “minutemen of the state”.

Didn’t they teach you “no amendment to the Constitution is absolute” when you were in law school? How could you have been a constitutional law professor and not know that?

Aww Josh..someday..when you grow out of puberty you’ll understand

Remind me again how many amendments have the word “regulated” in it.

1.6.21

Yeah, that and the photo are gonna keep coming up in perpetuity.

“Well-Regulated”

How come they won’t let me have a nuclear warhead ? My right to bear arms is being infringed !!!!

Trebuchet. What it lacks in rate of fire it makes up for in ammo flexibility.

That’s rich coming from the guy who tried to bring down our government.

You’ve finally answered the question “is Josh Hawley full of shit or just stupid?”.
Clearly you’re both!

Well what part of “well regulated militias” is true and applicable to life in 21st century America?

Using old language and obsolete circumstances to justify unregulated use of firearms is phony.

Like if you care about the constitution.

#ExpelJoshHawley
#SeditiousGOP

What part of “well-regulated” don’t you get, Josh? And what part of the 2nd Amendment isn’t a suicide pact?

Also, every constitutional right isn’t without limits, even the 2nd Amendment. But you know you that already, Yale Boy. You’re just leveraging white grievance for power.

but josh you’re an insurrectionist that supported overthrowing american democracy. if you think you’ll be remembered for anything else, you’re kidding yourself.

Maybe Josh or some other constitutional scholar can explain why I can’t buy Stinger missiles at Cabela’s. I can see why the 2A won’t let me buy arms that I can’t physically bear, but shoulder fired missiles seem like they’d be covered.

We’re telling you. Trebuchet is the thing.

Your sedition demonstrates your hate for that American document.

Always superficial in your argument; rarely any depth of understanding.

Whereas Hawley has always preferred sedition and treason.
[….]

Says the man who pumpfisted the insurrectionists before they stormed the capitol and tried to undo our whole consitutional system.

If you’re so strict about the Constitution then you should resign based on the 14th

Thank you for demonstrating another phony argument. This is fun, do another one

Josh tried to cancel half of America’s votes in the last election because he thought it would be an easy way to kickstart his 2024 campaign.

Maybe he should sit this one out.

Insurrections lecturing about the constitution, that’s rich

What part of “regulated militia” is it hard for you to understand?

People who raise a fist in support of insurrectionists lose their seat at the table. The FBI is comin’ for you, it’s just a matter of time…

That is called broken logic. He said the arguments abusing the second amendment are phony, not the second amendment.

I don’t expect you to be able to manage consistent logic.

All criticism and no action. That sums you up.

Ahh January 6 guy thinking he can speak with authority on the constitution.

We don’t take advice on the Constitution from seditionists.

Dude, you backed an insurrection to try to overthrow the government. You have no interest in the Constitution. THIS is a phony argument.

No. He said there were phony arguments about the second amendment.

Sedition is not constitutional….

Remember that “well regulated” part? You guys always forget that part.

Republicans: “The Constitution is absolute!”

The Constitution: “I have 27 Amendments.”

He didn’t say that. Do better.

Benedict Hawley says what?

Go fuck yourself, traitor.

What does the term “well regulated” mean to you?

Rep. Vicky Hartzler (r) [2016 file photo].

Today:

Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
These hikes could end up targeting nearly one million small businesses and their workers, who will see their paychecks dwindle after years of wage growth thanks to the previous administration.
4:35 PM · Apr 7, 2021

As always, there was hilarity in the responses:

And what is Vicky’s plan for when those same small businesses can’t get any customers because all of our roads and bridges are too far gone to drive on?

You need to see your paycheck cancelled, not dwindled

Where was this concern for small businesses when you were cashing their ppe loan checks??? #Hypocrite

Hey, Home Economics teacher if these small businesses make more money because of Biden’s package which they most likely will no wages get cut but they increase.

Also how can you get on your Soapbox and brag about Trumps wage growth when you lost 3 MILLION JOBS the last 4 years

The only thing we witnessed under the previous administration was another GOP led economic collapse–

Job growth/loss by administration–

Trump = -2,876,000 LOSS
Obama = 11,572,000 GAIN
Bush II = 1,357,000 GAIN
Clinton = 22,994,000 GAIN
Bush I = 2,633,000 GAIN

Dem (16 years) = 34.5 MILLION
Rep (16 years) = 1.1 MILLION
[….]

And your continuing lies a deception never falters! You just keep pandering to your donors.

And some of the responses to Representative Hartzler’s (r) previous Tweet:

Why don’t you suggest something better then, Vicky? What’s your grand plan for actually improving things?

Once again you are twisting the facts/misrepresenting the situation. I wish you were more honest in presenting facts to your constituents.

Help or get the hell out of the way

Riiiiiiiiight.

Years of wage growth? What a bunch of lies. My tax rate is 28%. If I have to pay 28% in fed income tax, so should everyone else. Hopefully, the Democrats will get rid of all the loopholes that corporations big & small get so that they pay $0 in taxes. Like my MO employer.

I am for it. Take back that tax break u and the idiot trump gave to the richest 1 percenters and help take care of the middle class

Do you have any idea how much Missouri taxpayers who own small businesses actually pay, @RepHartzler? Because I do. It’s time you paid your fair share.

Reminder: Corporate tax rates were 35% just a few years ago.

Reminder: Vicky Hartzler is a pathological liar.

There you go.

Robin Carnahan, Nominee as Administrator of the General Services Administration (GSA)

She holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics from William Jewell College and J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law. Robin frequently speaks, writes and testifies about government innovation through smarter use of technology.

This insures that the next presidential transition (in 2028, right) will actually work they way it’s supposed to.

$400,000.00 is a nice number

President Biden’s plan to hike taxes would inevitably hurt hardworking, middle-class Americans.

Roughly one million small businesses could be affected by these increases, undeniably limiting their American Dream.
[….]
10:08 AM · Apr 5, 2021

“…inevitably…” As in “trickle down”? Yeah, no.

As always, there was much hilarity in the responses:

It’s not a tax increase except for the ones who r rich. Remember the tax decreases that u and the Republicans gave to the ones who didn’t need it?
Trickle down theory has never worked and never will

The corporations are still getting a tax cut. Biden’s increase doesn’t raise their tax rate to what is was before Trump’s tax cut.

Sedition also undeniably limits the American Dream.

Vicky, show us on your tax return where the bad president hurt you. Or better yet show us, your constituents, your tax returns for the last decade so we can make informed decisions about retaining your services as our rep. I bet you won’t.

I make a very good living, I’m middle class & live in your district.

These tax increases aren’t going to affect me at all.

Just you, welfare queen.

I wasn’t aware middle-class included those making $400,000+. Get real; either bring a legitimate complaint and or viable solutions the current leadership can implement. [….]

Since when is someone making $400,000 or more middle class?

You are incorrect and should probably make sure you know the facts of how legislation will actually affect your non-wealthy constituents.

Just as the Biden administration is pushing to raise taxes on corporations, a new study finds that at least 55 of America’s largest firms paid no taxes last year on billions of dollars in profits. … Many also received millions of dollars in tax rebates.

Your blatant dishonesty is something to behold. What you’re really concerned about is Biden hiking YOUR taxes after all of the government windfalls you’ve found yourself the beneficiary of.

Biden tax hike is for people making 400,000 and over. Stop lying. You should had listened when he spoke last week.
[….]

Wrong.

@RepHartzler, what is it with you and the continuous bullshit dog whistles? We all know the only reason you are complaining is because now your donors are gonna have to pay an equitable amount of taxes. Quit trying to gaslight your constituents.

You are embarrassing

But of course having their power grid collapse or water systems fail would be just fine. You really are #Clueless aren’t you.

Keep your bullshit to yourself, Vic.
