WATCH: A Fiery Pfluger Warns Socialism Now Begins

WASHINGTON, DC — Congressman August Pfluger said with the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on Wednesday, Jan. 20, that, “socialism begins tomorrow.”

Noting that President Biden is expected to overturn with multiple executive orders any of the policies of the previous Trump administration in one day, he added that Democrats leading congress have put into place rules that stifle debate or objections of the minority.

Pfluger was elected as a Republican to represent Congressional District 11 in Texas, one of the most conservative congressional districts in the country in an area that spans from Granbury through San Angelo to the Permian Basin.

Pfluger spoke to us from his office in the U.S. Capitol that was protected at the time with 25,000 National Guard troops following the riot at the Capitol two weeks ago Jan. 6.

Pfluger condemned the statement made by Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) where he doubted the loyalty to the Constitution of National Guard troops now guarding the nation’s capitol.

"The [National] Guard is 90 some-odd% male, and only about 20% of White males voted for Biden," Cohen said. "You've got to figure that in the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative … they're probably not more than 25% of the people there protecting us that voted for Biden. The other 75% are in the large class of folks that might want to do something,” Cohen said on CNN.

“This is the absolutely most disrespectful thing I have heard,” Pfluger, a career officer in the U.S. Air Force, said. “That reminds me of the Gestapo-like force that is being instilled [that assumes] if you have a viewpoint, but you’re serving in the US Military, they can deprive you of [dignity] because you have a viewpoint that doesn’t agree with the party in power. It’s just despicable.” Pfluger said.

Pfluger maintained that his objections to the electors from Arizona and Pennsylvania were allowed under the US Constitution. He describes his study of the Constitution and the 12th Amendment before he made his decision to vote to object to the electors. He noted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi objected to the electors for President George W. Bush.

Pfluger claimed his only objective was to have a transparent discussion about the voting irregularities. He said he had no illusions that his and other conservative lawmakers’ objections would lead to the overturn of the Nov. 3 election.

Inauguration...."It Is What It Is".  Biden is our president.  We need to make the best of it.  Biden keeps mentioning he will lead ALL of us, regardless of political party, race, or beliefs.  You will never hear him talk down on anyone because of party, race, gender, or handicap.  He has respect for ALL. We were headed towards a "dictatorship" country, thus a record amount of people came out and voted for a change.  Some states were flipped because of this outcry for change. 4 years is not long at all, but we shall see what becomes. 

Comment

As opposed to the anti american republicans who tried to overthrow the government and install a dictator on the 6th?

Comment

Oh no! Maybe Pelosi should order in more troops plenty of other parking garages they can sleep in I’m sure.

Comment

The democrats seem to playing by the republican playbook. The republicans need to stop the whining and deal with it like the democrats did.

Comment

Thanks for standing up for what’s right!

Democrats, in the attempt to elicit “change” (the tired old adage the left always falls for) are doing things that are detrimental to our Republic, and will eventually erode the foundation our country was built upon!

They either don’t understand the consequences of their actions, or they do and just don’t care because they know no one on the left is going to hold them accountable.

An amusing headline indeed.  Even were it true, such a scenario would be infinitely preferable to the four years of near limitless foolishness, incompetence, and mean-spirited evil the country has suffered for the last four years.  January 20 opened the door to brighter days, and renewed my faith in a merciful God.

Comment

Job killing proposals during a world wide pandemic.

The demonization of hard working, America loving Trump supporters as “ domestic terrorists” and “white supremists”.

Changing immigration laws which will result in hoards of illegal immigrants coming into the U.S.

The outright censorship of one political group over another.

And all we hear from the left is “but, but, but Trump”. I know it’s a stretch, but try thinking for yourself instead of just regurgitating the pablum you’re being spoon fed by a corrupt leftist media.

I politely suggest you look elsewhere for your "information" than the demonstrated bilge-spilling rightist toadies on Fox, whose talent lies in their ability to reproduce the lies spewed by a consummate prevaricator with vanishingly little acquaintance with the truth.

"The election was rigged!"  Anybody who believes that is an idiot.

Comment

Pfluger is totally irrelevant.  History will not hold him in high regard because of his radical histrionics and conspiracy theory rhetoric.  Trump's sycophants are falling by the wayside.  Pfluger will be one of them.

While I don't question his patriotism and respect his prior service to our country, I have little doubt that he puts politics over country.

Comment

Would love to hear your opinion about Biden revoking the Mexico City Policy, which the Trump administration put in place to ensure American taxpayers are not funding abortions overseas.

Talk about evil. Your “faith” aside pretty sure God not on the side of that!

Comment

Speaking of DC...did democrats not even think about the logistics involved with sending 25,000 NG troops to the Capital? Apparently not what a mess!!

Comment

Acting chief of capital police Sen. Maggie Hassan (D) : I’m pushing for answers- this needs to be fixed immediately”.

I’ll bet you are...more than likely looking for someone else to blame! You’re in charge, Senator, so the buck stops with you. Maybe if not so obsessed with yet another PHONY impeachment it never would have happened at all ;)
