Joe Scarborough: ‘Seeds Being Planted for the Destruction of House GOP Majority’ (Video)

Joe Scarborough predicts that the dysfunction among House Republicans will lead to Democratic victories in the future

A day after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie blamed the House Republican majority for delaying aid to victims of Hurricane Sandy, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough had some dismal predictions for the future of the party.


“I will tell you, the seeds are being planted right now for the destruction of the House Republican majority,” Scarborough said after replaying Christie's comments from a press conference. “They are being planted before they are sworn in today,”

“We haven't even talked about guns,” co-host Mika Brzezinski replied.

“We haven't even talked about Sandy Hook,” Scarborough added. “We haven't talked about being wrapped as the party of (NRA chief) Wayne LaPierre instead of the party of Ronald Reagan. The extremism that is going to be wrapped around this party, the men and women being sworn in today start — behind the eight ball — they are already on their way to making Nancy Pelosi the next speaker of the House.”

    When a young, female intern was found dead in Joe Scarborough's Congressional office, it was the Medical Examiner, Dr. Michael Berkland, who performed the highly
    questionable autopsy on the intern. The same Dr. Berkland will be in court, January 9th, 2013, in Pensacola, Florida, to face multiple criminal charges against him – for storing human remains and organs, illegally, in a locker that Berkland had rented.

    for background on Mr. Scarborough's story.)

    Here are some links to articles on Dr. Michael Berkland and his

    Dr. Michael Berkland, has already lost his license twice, in Missouri, and then Florida, for performing poor or incomplete autopsies.

    Joe Scarborough must be very concerned, and want to know more about these additional charges, of various illegal activities, made against the ex-Medical Examiner, Michael Berkland. The covert storage of body parts by Dr. Berkland sounds strange and macabre by all accounts. Just googling “Dr. Michael Berkland” is eerie.

    Joe Scarborough must be anxious to hear what the defense has to say this Tuesday, January the 9th, to try and explain more of Dr. Berkland's, unlawful and abnormal actions.

    Unless, the trial gets postponed, because the defense isn't ready yet…
