This really what some of those people want.

Kinzinger hits back at Boebert’s church and state remarks: ‘We must oppose the Christian Taliban’

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) on Wednesday criticized comments that Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) made on Sunday in which she called for ending the separation of church and state in the United States.

Boebert said in a speech at the Cornerstone Christian Center in Basalt, Colo., that she is “tired” of the principle and falsely claimed that the Founding Fathers did not intend to keep religion separate from government.

Kinzinger condemned Boebert’s comments and compared them to the views of the Taliban, the militant Islamic fundamentalist group that rules Afghanistan.

“There is no difference between this and the Taliban. We must oppose the Christian Taliban. I say this as a Christian,” he tweeted.

Boebert argued that the separation of church and state “junk” is not in the Constitution and was only in a letter that “means nothing like they say it does.”

She appeared to be referencing a letter that then-President Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1802 to the Danbury Baptist Church Association in Connecticut. In the letter, Jefferson wrote that the American people had built “a wall of separation between Church and State.”

The constitutional interpretation of separation of church and state comes from the establishment clause of the First Amendment, which states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.”

The Supreme Court applied this provision also to the states through the 14th Amendment’s due process clause, which prohibits states from passing laws that restrict people’s “life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”

But the court has more recently signaled a willingness to allow religion in public spaces, striking down a law in Maine earlier this month that prevented religious schools from receiving tuition aid from public funds. It also ruled in favor of a high school football coach who was placed on leave for violating the school’s policy against staff encouraging students to engage in prayer.

Boebert argued that the government has been able to direct the church but instead the church should direct the government.

I would like to add that the current chairman of the DNC is weak and should step aside.  He's done absolutely nothing to advance the party.

The DNC Chair is to raise money.  As long as he's raising funds he'll stay.

Don't think for a second it's gonna be a red wave in November.  There's a million ways for the GOP to screw the pooch.  They'll push the inside of every envelope.


HEDGING OUR BETS, ARE WE? 


I SAID MONTHS AGO THERE WOULD BE NO "RED WAVE".  THE GANG THAT COULDN'T SHOOT STRAIGHT HAS MANAGED TO PUT ONE THROUGH THEIR OWN FOOT WITH ALL OF TRUMP'S LIES COMING TO THE SURFACE.  NOTICE THAT A PURELY PARTISAN DEMOCRAT HAS YET TO EVEN TESTIFY BEFORE THE COMMITTEE.  THE GOPers ARE NOW COMING WITH THE TRUTH SIMPLY TO SAVE THEIR OWN ASSES.


HOWEVER, I WILL RESERVE FINAL JUDGEMENT UNTIL AFTER THE FINAL 1/6 HEARING.

If no democrat testifies it will be officially a witch hunt.  The committee needs to publicly question the democrats responsible for the safety and security of The Capitol Building.  They need to publicly ask why they didn't secure the building when the local news was telling people to stay away from the rally and the Capitol Building because of possible violence.  WTOP was warning people as early as 4 January. 

The committee does not want to have a McCarthy moment.  So far, they are getting closer everyday.  If they want to go after President Donald John Trump only they should have a separate committee just for that. 

If the democrats in charge of securing The Capitol Building had done their job those people would have never breached the outer barricade.
