"Swalwell can’t get a security clearance in the private sector. I’m not going to give him a government security clearance," said newly minted House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, making good on his promise to strip Democrats Ilhan Omar, Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell of their committee assignments in the House of Representatives. "Schiff has lied to the American public. We will not allow him to be on the Intel Committee either.”
The truth is that Congress is broken for the reasons that Cong. Chip Roy (R-TX) and others have been stating during the past week's Speaker Debate – under authoritarian Speaker Nancy Pelosi's rule rank-and-file members have been sidelined in the Legislative Process in favor of the Leadership Elites. Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) could become a transformational conservative leader thanks to this fight.
If the House takes a week to sort out the next Speaker, who cares? If it takes a month, who cares? Yes, I want the investigations to start and the subpoenas to fly, but it doesn’t really matter when that starts, just that it does. And it will.
My heart is usually with the Members of Congress who are so annoyed by the rest of the GOP that they do or say stupid things just out of simple frustration. But that doesn’t make what they say and do any less stupid. Maybe I’m too cynical, I don’t know for sure, but now that we’ve established the fact that 2022 sucked I fear 2023 will be the House GOP fighting among itself – but we can always hope.
Some surprises, such as the weakening of Russia and the chastening of China, are good news. But others – like America's current economic conundrums – leave us puzzled and most likely unprepared for the surprises of 2023. Things didn't quite work out as many people had expected in 2022... on just about every point across the political spectrum.
The problems escalated dramatically shortly after Biden took office in January 2021. During the 2022 fiscal year, which ran from October 1, 2021, to September 30, 2022, 98 suspected terrorists were apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border.
This week could mark the most consequential development on the U.S.-Mexico Border, yet how is it that so many Americans are so ignorant of what's happening? Might the answer have something to do with the fact that so many news organizations ignore the problem? If more people knew the true scope of the the president's problem, more would likely be concerned – and oppose Mr. Biden's actions.
Let’s sum up the state of America’s military brass with one appalling comparison between how the admirals, generals, and civilian leaders chose to treat two different service members. And right now, military veterans are refusing to recommend that young people join.
Warnock is a boilerplate Democrat of the left, with an agenda of government spending as the answer to every problem, who is also the address to turn to keep the door open to abortion and the LGBTQ agenda.
Whether it's some "non-binary" bondage mutant who oversees America's nuclear waste between bouts of luggage larceny, or an Army colonel who – and yeah, this happened – masks up in uniform as a leather sex puppy on social media ,and who along with junior officers also dressed as carnal canines that I guess would be an erotic litter... It is high time we no longer tolerate nuts as nuts.
Why are all these Democrats with Press Passes doing everything they can to downplay the "collusion" revelations coming out of Twitter? I’d bet dollars to donuts there’s a cabal of journalists who “turned in” to Twitter's Truth Police people THEY wanted quieted or shut down. And for people who claim to support "Free Speech" and inflate themselves as providers of "truth," being found out – or having THEIR emails exposed – is scaring the hell out of them.
Maj Toure, a Philadelphia high school dropout turned activist, tells me he started "Black Guns Matter" after he got tired of hearing people chanting endlessly "Black lives matter" – but saying nothing "when it's time for Black people to defend their lives" and their families. He carries a gun wherever he goes, because "This is my human right." And, he sells a T-shirt with the slogan "Make Criminals Afraid Again" printed on the front.
Elon Musk is releasing internal Twitter documents that clearly illustrate how "More to review from the Biden team" was "Handled," and how the "the Biden team" had a direct pipeline to Twitter's senior executives. It lays bare for all to see how the decision to bury the Hunter Biden Laptop Story happened – and oh what a difference the suppression made; 17% of Biden voters in 7 Swing States would not have voted for Biden had they known about the story.
The Founding Fathers understood human nature and its tendency toward excess – absent controls. And, for the next few weeks Democrats still control Congress. John Adams put it most succinctly: "There are two ways to enslave a nation. One is by sword. The other is by debt." So count on Democrats to threaten government "shutdown" if Republicans don't go along with their threats to spend more money... that we don't have.
Losing control of the people’s House last month was bad enough. Now Democrats have this “Twitter thing” to deal with – which is no longer within their authoritarian control to manipulate. They don’t have that free hand to tip the scales in their favor any longer, and with the new control of Congress in GOP hands they also know the days of keeping their secrets from the American Public are numbered... And they are terrified.
When you hear that something is refundable, you probably think that means that someone gets a refund on something he or she paid. By “refundable,” they (IRS) mean that someone gets a payment even if he or she paid nothing in the first place.
It would be hard to imagine any better agenda that would destroy America – that would have been as injurious as what we've already suffered through at the hands of the Biden White House and Democrat's "leadership" – than the following 10 things... yet Mr. Biden and the openly destructive Democrat Party have accomplished all of them.
We now know one major priority that Joe Biden will try to pass in the remaining weeks Democrats control the U.S. House of Representatives. The president says he'll try to "get rid of assault weapons." Well, instead of focusing on passing more gun laws – when those already on the books certainly aren't being enforced like they should – perhaps President Biden should focus on the simple old principles Democrats are so anxious not to see.
Democrats are on a relentless quest to get their hands on other people’s cash. It’s a scary thought to realize there are people in this country who not only fall for it, but are so wildly supportive of the manipulative masterminds behind it.
Washington, D.C. lawyers know that their last and only Wile E. Coyote chance of catching the Roadrunner – and now presidential candidate – is to get at least something on Donald Trump into the hands of a D.C. jury. So Joe Biden's Attorney General, Merrick Garland, just announced appointment of "Special Counsel" Jack Smith to further investigate Donald Trump... and we also now know the script of the 2024 Election from the last two elections.
