Wow...what did he do?

U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers will not run for reelection
(http://www.freep.com/article/20140328/NEWS15/303280052/U-S-Rep-Mike-Rogers-will-not-run-reelection)



U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Howell, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, announced this morning that he will not run for reelection.

The seven-term congressman – who has been a key ally of House Speaker John Boehner and frequent guest of Sunday morning political talk shows – said he will step down at the end of his term, which ends early next year. Rogers said he is stepping down to start a radio show to discuss conservative and national security issues.

“I believe in being a conservative media you have to move the ball forward,” Rogers said. He added, “that voice is missing.”

He said the show will begin in January 2015.

Great news! He doesn't seem to be a dynamic enough personality for his radio show to do anything but flop.

Michigan, 8th congressional district.

Looks like a Red district; hopefully a liberty candidate steps in.

Tom McMillin is in this district, but I don't know if he would abandon his State Senate race to run.

this guy is one of the worst when it comes to the super secret government state. Let's all celebrate when someone like this leaves. Of course, he will probably take a year or two off and then go work for a top secret contractor or the NSA.

Smokescreen public spamming by congressman Mike Rogers...

Okay, I'm calling it now... which defense or security industrial complex corporation will Mike Rogers landing to be an executive? Or maybe sit in the lobbying group within the Washington DC swamp?

The former FBI statist will land a another government paycheck, but this time, it will just change hands before it's given to him.Mike Rogers and his wife are taxpayer leeches

Er, I mean a radio show. Seriously, now starting next January stations across America will have to hear for three hours a day how we must show strength around the world, and MUST collect all METADATA, or else car bombs will go off. What a joke!

This does however bring up an interesting situation. Mac Thornberry is next in line to be intel chair after Rogers, BUT he's also next in line to be Armed Services Chair as well. He's going to have to decide which seat is more valuable to him.


IF he decides Intel....


a certain NC Congressman will then take the Armed Services gavel.

Great news of course. I thought this guy would be shilling in Congress forever.

I'm just not sure who would listen to an anti-populist radio host. I wonder why he isn't cashing in with a lobbying or "security" firm.

America's Leading Purveyor Of Wild Snowden Theories Is Getting His Own Radio Show

Which is why, in a way, it was perfect when Rogers announced on Friday that, at the end of his current congressional term, he will leave the House and become a talk radio host for Cumulus Media.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/28/mike-rogers-talk-radio-edward-snowden_n_5048246.html?&ncid=tweetlnkushpmg00000021

one douchebag retiring. this is a good thing. hope there's a better replacement ahead. can't be much worse.

He's a true believer and worships at the alter of the surveillance state. I can see the police staters seeing how effective Rand and the populist movement is becoming so they need the credentials of Rogers to spew on the radio and they'll likely pay to get him on some big stations. Maybe there's a false flag in the works and he'll be there for the "Itoldyaso" routine. Either way, I must say this surely brightens my Friday.

Thornberry is chosing the House Armed Services chair over Intelligence.

What the hell is he jabbering about?

If this is the kind of nonsensically ungrammatic gibberish we can expect from the Mike Rogers Show, it ain't gonna last very long.

He's a POS for waiting this long to announce. Anybody who wants to get on the ballot has to gather a large number of signatures by April 22.

The chatter here is that Mike's brother might step up and run. Go figure.

He ranks right up there with James Clapper. Lied through his teeth about spying on us then after proven to be a liar, set off to justify the spying. Fuck him and his guilty conscience.

He raised $40k in 2012.

He would need someone like Amash to jump in and really fight for him, but I think it's worth the shot.

I doubt it, he'll want Armed Services. Heck, I bet Peter King will get the Intelligence Chair.

He met his fundraising goals last quarter and he should do the same this quarter for his State Senate campaign. So he does have a campaign in place, but unfortunately there's very little overlap between the 8th congressional district and his state senate district. My guess is as good as anyone else's if he'll decide to switch to the MI-8 race. But he only has less than a month to decide and collect signatures.

Tom hasn't decided but he is definitely considering it. He needs petition signatures before he'll make a decision though (only 2 weeks left). I don't live in the congressional district but I'm going to try and head out there to collect some this weekend.

I'm certain he'll only run as long as he has a good chance to win. I'm kind of torn since I was looking forward to actually have someone I like represent my district in Lansing, but the chance to flip MI-08 with an anti-NSA liberty Republican is just too good of an opportunity.
