Representative Trey Gowdy appears to be the latest white knight to save America while serving in Congress, but how well do we really know who holds the purse strings to his political career.
Did you know that one of his campaign donors is a large Mexican business corporation, which coincidentally bought out a major American company in Gowdy’s hometown of Spartanburg, South Carolina? It also sponsored an event attended by U.S. journalists and organizations dedicated to promoting a New America…Can you say NORTH AMERICAN UNION, as in 10 kingdoms? Were you aware that Gowdy supports the ENLIST Act, which fast-tracks illegals to citizenship if they join the military at the same time that our troops are being reduced to levels not seen since before WW II? Why would Congress, especially Republicans, be getting rid of military at the same time that they are considering passing an act that would replace them with aliens who do not respect our laws? Think those might be the ones who will fire on the American people someday? Then we have the Benghazi Select Committee which Trey Gowdy chairs. Are you aware of who he appointed to this committee? Lobbyist Philip Kiko?
Philip Kiko – is a lobbyist for the Smith-Free Group, in which his clients include the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the radical environmentalist group the Sierra Club, Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), National Council of La Raza “the Race” (NCLR), and the National Organization for Women (NOW), NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (NLDEF) and others.
And it even gets worse, it also turns out that he lobbied for a group with strong connections to Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the U.S.
Energy Company That Got $700 Mil From Obama, Gives Dem Party $10 Mil
Trey Gowdy also received donations from Duke Energy, the same company that received $700 million in stimulus money from the Obama administration and turned around and donated $10 million to the Democratic Party while hosting them in South Carolina…
So you may ask yourselves, WHO can we count on to fix things in D.C., and my answer would be to quit relying on a political Superman because this a bigger fight than Congressional politics. No man can “fix” this because we are in a HOLY WAR and if you don’t believe that, then you are missing the big picture of what is taking place right now.

Denham Introduces H.R. 2377 – The ENLIST Act
Today U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) introduced H.R. 2377 – the Encourage New Legalized Immigrants to Start Training (ENLIST) Act, which authorizes the enlistment in the Armed Forces of qualified undocumented immigrants. The bill would provide a way for undocumented immigrants to become Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs) to the U.S. through their honorable service and sacrifice by serving in the U.S. military. The ENLIST Act gives an opportunity for qualified undocumented immigrants to serve the nation they seek to become citizens in. http://denham.house.gov/
The DREAM Act in the NDAA: Wrong for National and Homeland Security
“some in Congress are looking to provide a backdoor to instant citizenship for unlawful immigrants who are brought to the U.S. as minors—also known as “DREAMers,” after the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act—in the upcoming National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Contrary to the claims of supporters, these bills would not advance U.S. national security and would only harm the U.S. immigration system.
Representative Mike Coffman’s (R–CO) Military Enlistment Opportunity Act (H.R. 435) and Representative Jeff Denham’s (R–CA) ENLIST Act (H.R. 2377) would allow DREAMers to acquire legal permanent residence in exchange for military service. Then, because of existing law, once those DREAMERs were given LPR status, they could apply for citizenship on an expedited basis and would become citizens within months. http://www.heritage.org/

GOWDY INVOLVED IN THE SECRET PLOT TO INSERT AMNESTY INTO NDAA BILL EARLIER THIS YEAR
“Multiple news sources are reporting that the House GOP Leadership are working behind the scenes to insert an amnesty bill into the Defense Authorization bill, which will likely be marked up by the House Armed Services Committee this spring. The plan would include the ENLIST Act – a bill introduced by Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.) that would grant amnesty to illegal aliens who came to the country prior to 2011, were under the age of 15 when they arrived, and enlist in the military. If the provision is included, the bill would become a vehicle for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to add the Schumer-Rubio amnesty bill as an amendment when it reached the Senate floor.
The ENLIST Act has 42 cosponsors, including 24 Republicans. Among the supporters are Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) who chairs the House Immigration Subcommittee, Rep. Buck McKeon (R-Calif.) who chairs the House Armed Services Commitee, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) who serves as the Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), and the No. 3 ranking Republican in the House, Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).” https://www.numbersusa.com/
GOP Leaders Are Lying About Not Planning To Pass Amnesty
Sophomore Republican Rep. Jeff Denham of California, a close ally of GOP Whip Kevin McCarthy, is leading the push to add the text of his “ENLIST Act” to the NDAA, which could come to the House floor as early as next month.
The “ENLIST Act” would grant the privilege of enlisting in the US military to illegal aliens and then grant them amnesty and legal residency.
Now here’s a dot; among the cosponsors of the “ENLIST Act” are Reps. Mick Mulvaney and Trey Gowdy – the latter of whom is the chairman of the immigration subcommittee on the House Judiciary Committee. http://www.conservativehq.com/
House Benghazi committee chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., tapped a veteran of Capitol Hill and the K Street lobbying world as majority staff director of the controversial panel, amid indications that opponents – both of the new staff director and of the committee’s mandate – are ramping up their efforts.
To lead the Republican majority staff, Gowdy selected Philip Kiko, a key aide to Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., when the latter served as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and more recently a registered lobbyist for the Smith-Free Group, a K Street lobbying firm with a diverse roster of clients. KIKO, a former general counsel to the House Judiciary Committee had lobbied for ACLU and LCCHR.
The links steered readers to, among other websites, freerepublic.com, a conservative chat room, where some writers had previously expressed displeasure with Kiko’s lobbying activities, including a reference to him as “a self-described conservative.” One writer reminded readers that LCCHR lists among its member organizations ACLU, People for the American Way, the Service Employees International Union, and the Southern Poverty Law Center. http://www.foxnews.com/
THIS IS WHO TREY GOWDY APPOINTED TO THE BENGHAZI SELECT COMMITTEE
How did a Muslim Brotherhood/ACLU/SPLC lobbyist get tapped for the Benghazi Special Committee?
The American people are supposed to trust Republicans appointed to investigate Benghazi but as it turns out, the Executive Director appointed to the House Select Committee on Benghazi – Philip Kiko – is a lobbyist for the Smith-Free Group, in which his clients include the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the radical environmentalist group the Sierra Club, Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), National Council of La Raza “the Race” (NCLR), and the National Organization for Women (NOW), NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (NLDEF) and others.
And it even gets worse, it also turns out that he lobbied for a group with strong connections to Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the U.S. http://teapartyorg.ning.com/
