Epic – Republican Rep. Billy Long Uses Auctioneering Skills to Shut Down Committee Protester…

This is epic.  Must Watch.  Missouri Republican Representative Billy Long falls back on his prior job skills to shut down a disrupting protester.  Then comes the best part:

“I yield back”…

Some days ya just gotta laugh. Thank you Mr. Long, that moment will be long remembered.

      Its true – it was stupid and unbecoming. And for what its worth – for a change, the heckler was someone on OUR side I didn’t find it at all funny. And the fact that he’s a medically obese slob wearing a ridiculous tie makes it all the more embarrassing.

        The left can disrupt, scream and attack without repercussions and are allowed to bring attention to their stupid causes.

        How many hearings have they had where all these corrupt members of congress either tell social media giants that they aren’t doing enough to censor us conservatives (what they consider ‘fake news’) or they talk ignorantly about Russians meddling to swing an election? They’ve had several hearings and nothing ever gets done.

        So now Laura Loomer has the guts to stand up and advocate for YOU and ME and I think it’s about damn time. Marco Rubio says China’s election meddling on social media is a big deal but doesn’t know anything about the censoring of Conservatives by Big Tech? BS.

        Long may not have meant any harm but Republicans in congress are not taking this social media banning seriously enough and are ignoring the real election meddling. For campaign contributions, no doubt.

        i like sh-it distubers like Laura Loomer.. i found Rep. Long’s shtick a little insulting.

      As an interesting counterpoint, Senator Sasse – whom I generally detest for his Never Trump intransigence – at least managed to encapsulate a real reason why things like this are happening during the Kavanaugh hearings:

      The short is that Congress has so effectively neutered itself over the past century as the SOLE constitutional legislative body by transferring it’s power to both the Executive and Judicial branches of the Federal Government and to an unaccountable bureaucracy that it leaves no venue for individual citizens to debate and come to a consensus over the laws that govern us. Instead, Congress is populated mostly by self-serving cowards who have neither the will nor the courage to exercise their power so as to be held accountable for their policy decisions. Instead, Americans have to vest themselves with an “all or nothing” approach, because the courts, the bureaucracy and the Presidency now have hugely disproportionate power and influence over their lives; and the public only gets to vote for the President. So, as amusing as it was to see Mr. Long ‘revert back to his former career as an auctioneer” to stop a protester – Laura Loom – during this hearing, it begs a deeper question: what exactly does Mr. Long, and the rest of the members of this Congressional committee, know about an industry that now represents TRILLIONS of dollars in our economy? This is not a philosophical question, and it goes to the issue of competence – you SHOULD have to know quite a bit about this industry to be on such a committee – and ACTUAL representation of the interests of the people. Frankly, this is also is an indication that these putzes in Congress should not be making it a lifetime career.

      If I sound too harsh, it’s because I am of the opinion that the talent pool in Congress isn’t that remarkable. And anyone who thinks that Silicon Valley became what it did solely because of politics is naive. The science, engineering and technology MATTERS far more, and it is leaving bloviating Congressmen in the dust.

          I just was as unimpressed by Mr. Long and what he did as a member of Congress as I was disappointed with Ms. Loomer. But again, perhaps we wouldn’t have as many Ms. Loomers if we had members of Congress who took their responsibilities to the Constitution and to the people they represent far more seriously?

      Just check out the Camera View, Grassley, Feinstein, Hatch, Leahy, these people are not thinking clearly at 80 years of age.. Grassley lost control 5 minutes into the hearing and he has not kept the house under rules….thus violating the ethics house rules right along with the Dems. He is too soft, and looks weak.

    This protester was nothing like the ones attending Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing.

    She looked clean, and well dressed.

    Not sure if the ones I’ve been seeing at Kavanaugh’s–they have that seedy look about them, like they have something insidious and incurable.

    If you’ve ever been flashed by a pervert you know what look I’m trying to describe about the Kavanaugh hearing protesters. It’s that derelict, glimpse of the dark soul of one that hates your peace and dignity. The animistic behavior just distracts from their spiritual demise.
