3 Republican Senators Give Lame Excuse For Introducing Legislation To Cancel Columbus Day

Daily Caller: Two Republican senators introduced an amendment Wednesday to get rid of Columbus Day and make Juneteenth a new federal holiday.

Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson and Republican Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford introduced the amendment to legislation introduced by Republican Texas Sen. John Cornyn which would make Juneteenth a federal holiday.

“In response to a bipartisan effort to give federal workers another day of paid leave by designating Juneteenth a federal holiday, we have offered a counterproposal that does not put us further in debt,” Johnson said Wednesday, Fox News reported. “We support celebrating emancipation with a federal holiday, but believe we should eliminate a current holiday in exchange. We chose Columbus Day as a holiday that is lightly celebrated, and least disruptive to Americans’ schedules.” more

  1. Take away an “Italian” holiday? How about we ask that the blacks in the audience decide which holiday is more important…..MLK Day or Juneteenth and the winner gets the day.

  2. The word “Republican” is poison. It means the same as “democrat”.

    These people are complete shit, and are looking to enslave us as much as the left.

  3. President Trump is not the reason Republicans may not win in November. This stupidity and their complete inability to stand up for America as founded and fight back against the Marxist cultural revolution is all on them.

  4. …you know what? I’m all FOR it.

    …PROVIDED that the enabling legislation makes it MANDITORY for EVERY document, proclamation, decree, and celebration to explain CLEARLY that it’s a celebration of the FIRST time that Republicans freed Black people from Democrats, which is EXACTLY what it IS…


  5. Republicans are not the solution, they are the problem because they deceive so many people into following them into inaction against the Left, or at times into supporting the Left.

    They’re actually very effective at it, and few people ever catch on to what is going on, to what is being done to them.

  6. I’d like to propose a new holiday:

    Politician Reward Day

    Unfortunately, the date of the very best example of a politician getting the most appropriate award conceivable is already on our holiday calendar. Nicolae Ceaușescu was executed by firing squad on December 25, 1989.

  7. Rino’s are “Like a box of chocolates, you never know what your going to get.”
    Thanks, Forrest 😁

  8. Juneteenth would be too close to the 4th of July, Independence Day so that
    Juneteenth would be coopted as black independence day and become the new Independence day for blacks only while the rest of us would lose our freedom to celebrate our true independence on the 4th of July. Kiss my ass you damn RINO”S and fuck with destroying American holidays like Columbus Day or the 4th of July just to make it fair. Uncle Al, how about April 28 like when Mussolini was hung upside down from a lamppost on 4-28-1945, that would be appropriate as well.

  9. I’d like to sincerely apologize for voting for langford the first time he ran for office (I have nightmares about it). I did realize my mistake and voted against him every election since. I can only hope the people of Oklahoma wise up and get rid of this pariah the next time he is up for re-election.

  10. Had a dose of Patriotism this morning – visited the Flight 93 Memorial.

    Plenty of people (most were ignoring PA. mandatory mask directive from the MAN who dresses as a woman) out and feeling the companionship and American Spirit. Everybody talking to each other and being just good folks.

    If we’re dumping Columbus day why not add Sept. 11 instead? Take it to the demoncrats and the rinos….

    BTW the site is beautiful and has walking trails and everythin.

  11. I make or give no excuses for our country. We are a good country that has done the most good for the world in history.

  12. The republican party is not going to save us from anything.

    I was hoping Trump would save us from some of the bullshit, but let’s be honest. He’s letting Fauci the lockdown fraud be his spokesman on the virus. And Fauci is a deep state, establishment, clintonite who wants desperately to lock all us healthy people in our houses until he can push a vaccine into our veins. Whether we want the vaccine or not.

    So is Trump saving us from anything? He lets the deep state set policy and then he tries to keep his support with a few tweets. He’s ‘stronly considering’ something.

    I’m off the train. The 4th of July is in two days and i hope everyone thinks real hard about what that was. Did the founders do something analogous to a tweet for their king to take his boot off their necks?

  13. If I am reading this right, Sen. Cornyn proposed adding a new federal holiday for Juneteenth. There are already 11 of those, at least that I can find. They don’t need any more days off.
    On the other hand, if we are talking about congress, I would support giving them 360 days off every year, even if it isn’t a recognized federal holiday.
    But to remove Columbus Day for this? Nope, get rid of the entire bill.

  14. As I recall, Ron Johnson, lied his way into office as part of the tea party wave of 2018, just like Rubio and the other phonies. I think I probably gave him money.

    Remember Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown? Another one and done phony that rode the tea party wave and sweet talked us out of our dough.

    They pulled it off the first time. They didn’t the second go around.

  15. Wanna know what so many republicans are stupid, cuck commie-lite assholes?

    Because they’re brain dead corporate types who hire from literally the same political consultant pool as the democrats, and everyone in that pool is a fucking communist. Even Trump falls for this bullshit. Why the fuck would he let Van motherfucking Jones write up a policy to hand cuff cops during a fucking riot pandemic? Stupid… stupid.. stupid… The GOP is the party of stupid.

  16. Erase the birthday’s of our founding fathers and replace with MLK day. {Done} Next erase New Years and celebrate Woopie Goldberg day then easter will be replaced with Al Sharpton day after that July fourth replaced by Louis Farakan day etc etc

  17. Why would anyone want to celebrate Juneteenth? I thought the idea was that everyone was equal.

    So let me get this straight, we’re pulling down statues because of slavery but you want an annual reminder that you used to be slaves?

    But President Trump is the reason President Trump may not win in November.

    Nobody who thinks they can vote their way outta this, can ever “wise up”.

  21. I’ve been on Lankford’s ass for a while now. Guess it’s gonna take a personal visit.👊🏻

  22. Yeah! Let’s get rid of Columbus! I mean, you know…where would Western civilization be WITH him?

    But… Those who control the past control the present and future. Ain’t that right, BLM and Antifa?

    “Here’s part of the problem:

    Whites are only 10% of the world’s population, yet are the most industrious, ingenious, and innovative race the world has known. Whites have crossed seas, harnessed rivers, carved mountains, tamed deserts, and colonized the most barren icefields. Whites have formed nations, built civilizations, assumed and administrated power, created the Renaissance, the Age of Discovery, the Industrial Revolution, automation, technology, discovered electricity, nuclear energy, X-rays and invented automobiles, airplanes, jet engines, spacecraft, submarines, helicopters, radio, television, internet, computers, currency, telephones, anesthesia and medicine, communication satellites, microwave ovens, concrete, light bulbs, photography, telescopes and microscopes and countless other technological miracles.

    Whites were the first to circumnavigate the planet by ship, and orbit it by spaceship, to walk on the moon, to explore the solar system, create architecture, unlock the secrets of DNA, and relativity, climb the highest peak, reach both poles, exceed the sound barrier, descend to the deepest points of the oceans…… sub-Saharan Africans still cannot even feed themselves.

    Blacks are the only race incapable of caring for themselves. Whites still have to provide food, medical, financial, military, and engineering aid to every Black nation. They couldn’t survive without White charity.

    No pre-contact sub-Saharan African society ever created a written language, or weaved cloth, or forged steel, invented the wheel or plow, or devised a calendar, or code of laws, or any social organization, or formal religion, or system of measurement, or math, or built a multi-story structure or bridge or sewer, or infrastructure of any kind, and they never harnessed a river, or even drilled a well or irrigated, or built a road or railway or sea-worthy vessel, they never domesticated animals, or exploited underground natural resources, or produced anything that could be considered a mechanical device.

    Blacks lived alone in sub-Saharan Africa, a vast continent with temperate climates and abundant resources for 60,000 years, so they cannot blame racism, colonialism, poverty, culture, environment, imperialism, or anything else for their failures.

    19 of the 20 poorest countries are sub-Saharan African (Haiti). There has never been a successful Black country. No modern creations or civilization exists in sub-Saharan Africa that was not brought there by Whites.

    There are no White Third-World nations, but all Black ones are.
    Put Whites on an island and you get England; put Asians on an island and you get Japan; put Blacks on an island and you get Haiti.

    Nowhere Blacks live are they considered achievers. In fact, Blacks are universally viewed as unproductive and disruptive to society.

    Simply, life is a test.”

    So, test yourselves and not vote for these RINOS next come-around.

  23. I’m from Oklahoma as well and I never voted for Lankford. I tried real hard in the Senate primaries to get people to not vote for him, but I couldn’t convince the idiots who thought he was the best man for the job because either A, he had been in D.C. and knew how it worked or B Falls Creek. I can’t remember now if I left that race blank in the general or voted for a third party, because that’s what I always do when the person chosen for me is a POS.

    He will be reelected though, because that’s just how stupid Okie Republicans are, they’ll keep you there if you keep on running.

    As for Trump, I have been nothing but disappointed in him since this entire virus shit started. I will vote for him of course because the other choice is Biden, but I’m not as certain as others that he’s got this in the bag. At this rate there will be no election day voting, every state will be making you mail in your ballot and even if all the same people voted for him again, he’ll lose because not enough to overcome the massive fraud.

    So voting isn’t the answer, that I can agree with, but what is the answer?

    > As for Trump, I have been nothing but disappointed in him since this entire virus shit started.

    That is what those too enamored with themselves call a “category error”.

    “President Trump” had one job — to not be “President Hillary”. He’s just been mucking the place up since January 21st, 2021. When his one job was finished. Successfully. But finished. Just like every boomer, who’s time has passed. Can’t just sit there quietly running out the clock. Boomers gotta boom! (Not that they’re too enamored with themselves.)

  25. What is up with Republican lawmakers getting so sick of late?

    Is there something bad in the water in D.C.?

    They act like they’ve been drinking Liberal Kool-Aid!

  26. “Juneteenth is a day in our history that redefined the meaning of freedom and equality in America,” Lankford said.

    What a pompous, ignorant, pandering tool! If Juneteeth must be a holiday, it can only qualify as a uniquely Texas one, for it decidedly revolves around a date when Union Army General Gordon Granger, finally got around to notifying the black population in the Houston/Galveston area that they were, indeed, freedmen.

    On the other hand, the very real date which “redefined the meaning of freedom and equality in America” happened 09 Apr 1865, between Generals Lee and Grant. All that was left was somebody in DC signing off on the paperwork, which President Johnson (D) managed to accomplish, 16 months later, on 20 Aug 1866, formally declaring the War over. That road culminating at the realities of that date, were purchased in our nations most precious treasures: blood, over 750,000 dead (roughly 2.5percent of the Republic’s population at that time…would be nearly 8 billion souls today); money, $7 billion (over one quarter trillion, in today’s inflated fiat currency). Tragically, the most egregiously mortal loss, was the breaking, and discarding of, the signal compact which had been forged between the States, and the servant of their creation, the Federal government.


  27. Interestingly enough, in spite of this parlor trick posturing, all of these Senatorial buffoons did manage to actually accomplish meaningful legislation, today, albeit, quite by accident.

    Sen. Paul posted up a bill, Stopping Improper Payments to Deceased People Act, in the middle of others’ word-salad pieces. Among other things, it mandated stopping accidentally sending checks to dead people, and provided for improved detection, prevention, and recovery of improper payments to deceased individuals. I like it!

    It passed unanimously, only to be immediately followed by parliamentarian maneuvering to discover, not only what they just passed, but IF they had passed it. An answer which even the Chair could not forthwith provide!

    FFS! If any of my contractors or employees were this blitheringly incompetent I’d fire them last week. Furthermore, demand surrender all moneys paid out, to them, for their fraudulent assertions that they could perform those duties for which they were hired, and for just wasting my time!


  28. Its gonna be tough to find Lead pipe for plumbing in New Jersey if they go ahead with this shit. It will all be in behind the drivers seats of the Italians.

  29. @Anonymous (aka … too lazy, or ignorant, or stupid to pick a moniker) …

    “President Trump” had one job — to not be “President Hillary”. He’s just been mucking the place up since January 21st, 2021. When his one job was finished. Successfully. But finished. Just like every boomer, who’s time has passed. Can’t just sit there quietly running out the clock. Boomers gotta boom! (Not that they’re too enamored with themselves.)

    PDT’s done a pretty damned good job ‘not being Hillary’ … best economy in 50 years, lowest unemployment in 50 years, lowest black & hispanic employment EVER!, highest Dow Jones EVER! … but, what have you done for me lately?
    Yes, Trump fell for the Chinese WuHu Flu panic by the CCP & their willing allies in the Deep State (too bad we didn’t elect Hillary; she would’ve done soooo much better … yeah, right) …. got us in NO WARS, building the Wall

    …. but, he’s just a Boomer …. you wish you had the stamina of this ‘Boomer’

    oh, & if anybody is ‘enamored w/ themselves’ … it’s the millennials

  30. xxx President Trump has all ready stated that any vaccine Will Not Be forced on the American people.
    He stopped Bill Gates and Fauci cold on that one.

  31. Molan Labbe.
    Sorry can’t spell your screen name right.
    Here it comes again in 2016 we had JohnS now we have anonymous trying to stir it up.
    I would bet he is a paid Troll and is here to sow discord on this site,watch his posts and see how much they all follow the same themes.
    The writing will always be the same.
    Most people do not know that this site is one of the top sites on the web for traffic,and that means us and all we say here has a large audience.
    They will pull out all the stops to bring us and President Trump down.
    Blast them every time.

  32. It sure sounds like one of those ads (made by old white people) who say “I voted for Trump but now I’m disappointed in him….”

    Sorry I’ll never be upset enough with Trump to vote for Dementia joe.
