Scott Garrett

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 7/23/15

  • Donald Trump may run as a third party candidate if he fails to win the GOP nomination .... or maybe he won't. Who knows?
  • Russell Moore of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission will interview Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio at a Southern Baptist Convention rally next month.
  • Rep. Scott Garrett of New Jersey is refusing to pay dues to the National Republican Congressional Committee because it sometimes supports gay Republican candidates.
  • Eagle Forum's Cathie Adams urges Republican presidential candidates to go after Planned Parenthood hard: "It is no different from something that I saw just a very few years ago in Dachau."
  • Finally, FRC prays against Planned Parenthood: "Please pray and encourage your friends to pray with great determination for the whole truth about Planned Parenthood to come out in these investigations. Pray that not only the selling of baby parts would stop, but also other serious wrongs that are perpetrated by PP abortion clinics every day. Pray also that Lawmakers will get serious about defunding this American evil and return all gifts they have received!"

Rep. Scott Garrett Wonders What Obama's 'Ulterior Motive' Is In GOP Shutdown

One of NewsMax host Steve Malzberg’s favorite guests is his very own congressman, Republican Rep. Scott Garrett, who reliably offers an official parrot to Malzberg’s right-wing musings.

On yesterday’s show, Malzberg had Garrett on to discuss the government shutdown and impending debt ceiling crisis, which Malzberg of course blamed on President Obama. The president, Malzberg insisted, “wouldn’t mind the devastation” that would come if the House GOP refused to raise the debt ceiling and throws the country into default. “I just think that this president doesn’t mind inflicting the pain he’s inflicted and wouldn’t mind inflicting the devastation that would come with not meeting the debt ceiling increase,” he said.

Garrett agreed, adding, “Throughout man’s history, there are those who will call good evil and evil good and those who will not speak the truth and claim it’s the truth, and that’s what you’re obviously hearing from Secretary Lew and the president on this as well.”

The congressman went on to insist that the secretary of the treasury “calm the markets” merely by announcing that a default wouldn’t be that bad.

“You really have to wonder what is, unfortunately, their ulterior motive here,” he added.
