Speaking Wednesday evening with host Kennedy at Fox Business, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) predicted that the shenanigans this week to pass a continuing resolution providing short-term funding for the United States government and extra big-government goodies including authorization for mass surveillance (http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/congress-alert/2019/november/20/bipartisanship-judiciary-committee-ranking-member-thanks-chairman-for-slipping-mass-surveillance-provision-into-continuing-resolution/), all without US House of Representatives members having time to adequately review the legislation, is not the end of the story.

Come December 20, Massie predicts congressional leadership “will come in a closed room” with Massie and other representatives “and they’ll say ‘OK now we’ve got the really big omnibus and, if you vote for this, you can go home for Christmas, but, if you don’t vote for it and it fails, we’re gonna make you stay here over Christmas and New Years.’”

An omnibus bill throws together funding for many different parts of the US government at the last minute instead of debates and votes being held over time on separate spending categories-based bills.

“It’s almost like a dystopian future,” continued Massie in the interview, saying that previously when he has been in the closed room House members start “chanting ‘vote, vote, vote, vote’ and people run up there and vote for something they have not read.” Concludes Massie regarding this recurring phenomenon: “There’s some Stockholm syndrome going on where like the hostages are superexcited to vote for their own doom, or for the doom of the American people.”

Watch here (https://video.foxbusiness.com/v/6106913798001/#sp=show-clips) Massie’s complete interview, in which he also discusses the peculiar situation of House members, who say President Donald Trump is abusing presidential powers, voting to authorize and fund everything Trump is doing, as well as why Massie recently voted against sanctions on China.

Massie is a member of the Ron Paul Institute’s Advisory Board.

Imagine the shaming we could do.

Kentucky elected two smart, sane senators that represent people, not special interests. How many of those does your state have? None? None at all?

That might cause a mass migration to Kentucky.

What is the difference between bribing, extorting, threatening, a congressperson to make a rush vote without reading it resulting in negative repercussions, and Trump wanting to withhold aid for corruption?

He'll be home for Christmas. He'd have to find 217 other principled people in that room to hold it up.

Unfortunately, elected officials at the federal level seldom have anything to do with local politics in their home state.

Child Trafficking Reported in Kentucky as “One of the Most Corrupt States in the Country” (https://medicalkidnap.com/2016/02/12/child-trafficking-reported-in-kentucky-as-one-of-the-most-corrupt-states-in-the-country/)


In an article we published last year where we reported that the FBI had begun to investigate corruption in Kentucky after a Harvard study identified Kentucky as “one of the most corrupt states in the country,” one of our readers commented that in Kentucky, “we treat horses here better than we do our mothers, fathers, and children.”

Weren't anti-Amash people just recently here on this website arguing that Massie was staying in the good graces of the party leadership?
