Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick Says ‘Illegals’ Will Have Millions of Children ‘Who Are Gonna Take …Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R-TX) claimed that migrants coming in from the southern border are being used to start a “silent revolution by the Democrat party to take over the country.” Speaking with Laura Ingraham on Fox News Thursday night, Patrick told the Fox News host that Friday is Constitution Day before citing Article IV, Section 4 of the document, known as the Guarantee Clause. It says the federal government guarantees each state a republican (yes, that’s a small r) form of government, as well as protection against invasion. Patrick paraphrased the clause, and seized upon the “invasion” part: The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union, and shall protect each of them against invasion and domestic violence and guarantee a Republican form of government. We need every state–every red…

Anthony Gonzalez revealed to the New York Times’s Jonathan Martin that he will be retiring from Congress after this term, citing concerns over his and his family’s security from threats of violence from Trump loyalists. Rep. Gonzalez was a star college football player for the Ohio State Buckeyes and was a first-round NFL draft choice.

WATCH: Brian Williams Brutally Mocks Madison Cawthorn’s Claim of Constitutional Right to Air Trave…MSNBC host Brian Williams brutally mocked North Carolina Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorn over his claim that the United States Consitution guarantees unrestricted domestic air travel. On Thursday night’s edition of The 11th Hour With Brian Williams, the show’s sardonic moderator devoted his final segment to dragging Newsmax — “the cable channel for those who think Fox News is too leftist” — and Cawthorn in particular. Williams introduced a Newsmax clip of “Madison ‘Rootin Tootin’ Cawthorn, the North Carolina congressman last seen beating up on a tree,” in which the arboreal pugilist told host Grant Stinchfield that requiring vaccines for air travel is akin to apartheid: This is a medical apartheid, plain and simple. There’s over a hundred million Americans who are not vaccinated. I think it’s even more than that. And if they want to start shutting…

Calling Trump ‘A Cancer for the Country,’ GOP Rep. Says He Won’t Seek Reelection: ‘Toxic Dyn…Getty Images/Pool Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH) will not seek a third term in Congress, citing “the toxic dynamics inside our own party.” The Republican also called former President Donald Trump “a cancer for the country.” Gonzalez drew the ire of Trump earlier this year when he voted to impeach Trump for incitement to insurrection after the January 6 Capitol riot. Trump was acquitted by the Senate, but that did little to soften Trump’s anger towards the Republicans who voted against him. At a rally in Ohio in June, Trump slammed Gonzalez “a grandstanding RINO,” and slammed the representative for voting in favor of “the unhinged, unconstitutional illegal impeachment witch hunt.” Trump added, “He’s a sellout, he’s a fake Republican and a disgrace to your state. He’s not the candidate that you want representing the Republican…
