Congressman Cleaver is Sworn in for his Eighth Term in Congress

January 3, 2019

(Washington, D.C.) - Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II, (D-Missouri) was sworn in today for his eighth term as a United States Congressman. He also delivered the opening prayer for the historic occasion.

“The mid-term election brought a new era for the American people. It has been eight years since a Democratic majority ruled the House. As I took my oath today, I was reminded that now more than ever, members of Congress must demonstrate civility and respect for one another and work together through our disagreements,” said Congressman Cleaver.

Congressman Cleaver will continue to fight for the protections of home owners, consumers and business owners. As technology continues to rapidly expand, Congressman Cleaver will remain an advocate for oversight and accountability within the industry.

Today, the new Democratic Majority will get to work to make progress in the lives of seniors, children and hard-working Americans. That involves:

- Defending protections for people with pre-existing conditions, keeping Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid off the chopping block, and lowering health costs and prescription drug prices for all Americans;

- We will raise workers’ wages with strong economic growth by rebuilding America’s infrastructure;

- We will clean up corruption to make Washington work for the American people, reducing the role of money in politics and advancing fair elections by strengthening the Voting Rights Act.

“I am looking forward to serving the constituents of Missouri’s Fifth District for another term. With each new Congress there is a chance for a new beginning,” said Congressman Cleaver.

His remarks & prayer today to start the Congress . . . 

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO-05)

In recognition of father Patrick Conroy and in unbridled optimism for this prayer, please join in. Almighty and enduring God whose lordship is just and true, we bough in recognition of that God-ship and this haloed and consequential moment of inaugurating a speaker to preside over and provide leadership to the House of Representatives of the United States. May we temporarily hush our preoccupation with vexing considerations that deplete our energy and consume our hours to seek now from thou whose immaculate voting record demonstrates on thee guidance. We pray, O Lord, for wisdom sufficient to lean not only on our unaided privilege and power, to embrace our summons, to address the great challenges of this day, fraught with tribalism at home and turbulence abroad.

Thou who has the whole world in his hand to thee we pray for inner resources, to rise as a legislative body above political selfishness and then shrink to a level of a level of and penitence that would be in harmony with your will. And when we leave this place, we will with your blessing launch a bold attempt to become the architects of a kindlier nation that is purging itself of any and all prejudices which degrade the unmatched blessings you have awarded the people of this great nation. Inspire us, the members of this August body, to dedicate ourselves to the healing of open sores in a land where there is far too much mistrust of those who are different.

Led now in this temple of governance by the Speaker and leaders of both sides of the political aisle, we pray for your presence in this place. We need thee every hour, O Lord, how we need thee. When we're puzzled, guide us with your hand of direction.

when we're worn and weary, grant us light to find a just and fair way, and when we're confused, ignore our priorities and pet projects so that any diminutive success may give you the glory. We have now this prayer, o Lord, Amen.

May not always agree with the Congressman but I understand it's important for Kansas City to have a place at the table and Cleaver's role for this session is going to be extraordinarily important in helping to get the help we need from the feds.

Overall, no matter which side of the aisle you stand, this is really an important day for the nation.

Cleave wants to do this after he has received all of his handouts.

I can imagine the majority of the Dems fell asleep during Cleavers speech. Or pulled the barf bag out in the seat in front of them.

Cleaver should come home and take over the role of Superman

It just occurred to me that there's a very big contradiction gong on here at TKC. Something that needs to be pointed out.

There are so many angry, Conservatives here pointing out the shortcomings of everyone else and making a lot of noise about how nobody works as hard as they do. But if you check closely, all of their comments are made during the day when they should be at work.

So it's actually right wing bums who don't have jobs who want liberals to work for them.

That is very strange and might be something worth considering if you think about some of the comments. Just lies because people don't like what they are seeing in the news.

It's not that I love Cleaver or care about what he's doing but I just think some of these comments sound like angry grandparents who are also living off the dole.

440. Pay into social security for 45 to 50 years and then begrudge people concerned about their community.
Cleaver should develop a plan to decrease murders among his people.
