House Republican Passes Out Grenades To Colleagues | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A freshman House Republican is starting out the new session of Congress with a bang.

    Rep. Cory Mills (R-FL) passed out what he says are inert grenades to colleagues, marking his appointment to committees charged with protecting national security.

    Daily Mail reporter Morgan Phillips shared a photo Thursday of one of the grenades, which features the image of the elephant symbol of the Republican Party, and an accompanying letter.

    "Welcoming you to a mission-oriented 118th Congress. I am eager to get to work for the American people, and I look forward to working with you to deliver on this commitment. I am honored to be a part of the Armed Services and Foreign Affairs Committees," Mills wrote in the letter.

    "In that spirit, it is my pleasure to give you a 40 mm grenade, made for a MK19 grenade launcher. These are manufactured in the Sunshine State and first developed in the Vietnam War," he added.

    Mills also called on his colleagues to "come together and get to work on behalf of our constituents." In addition, the letter contained a note asserting the grenades are inert.

    A spokesman for Mills confirmed to The Washington Post the contents of the photograph are legitimate and stressed, "the grenades are inert, and were cleared through all security metrics."

    Mills is a decorated U.S. Army combat veteran and businessman who became an appointee of former President Donald Trump to serve on a Pentagon defense advisory board. He ran a successful campaign to represent Florida's 7th Congressional District in the 2022 election.

    During the campaign, Mills made headlines for an ad mocking the "liberal media" for "crying" about how his company PACEM Solutions sold riot-control munitions, including tear gas, that law enforcement used against Black Lives Matter demonstrators and others.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
