  • New York Yankees minor league manager Rachel Balkovec says she's living 'American dream' with new role

    01/12/2022 5:12:48 PM PST · by BenLurkin · 31 replies
    Balkovec was introduced Wednesday as manager of the New York Yankees' low-A affiliate in the Florida State League. In taking over the Tampa Tarpons, Balkovec will become the first female manager in the history of affiliated baseball, an appointment 10 years in the making for the former college softball player. Nearly a decade after changing her name on resumes to disguise her gender and break into baseball, the 34-year-old has smashed several barriers en route to this title. She was the first woman to serve as a full-time minor league strength and conditioning coach, then the first to be a...

    This just ANNOYS the heck out of me. Every time I see that the Democrats take power, we see the “Dense Pack” attack happen 2 minutes after all the oaths (not that they seem to mean much lately) are “promised” and the chamber is called into session. Dense Pack can be translated as “we’ve lined up ALL our Agenda items, have written the Bills, and are going to launch them via MALS (the new technology magnetic propelled aircraft launcher on the USS Ford instead of the old steam catapults) in a hurry. It’s happened time after time and REALLY accelerated...

    New COVID-19 cases in South Africa have tripled in three days, according to new figures released by the country's health ministry on Thursday, sparking concerns over the spread of the new omicron variant. South Africa is entering its fourth wave of COVID-19 infections due to the omicron variant, Phaahla added at a media briefing on Friday. He said that the infections with the new variant have been detected in seven out of the country's nine provinces. Since omicron was first detected in the country eight days ago, cases have risen steadily, he said on Friday.

    President Joe Biden, having failed twice to convince House Democrats to back his legislative agenda, resorted Thursday to personally calling lawmakers to beg them to vote for the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Act. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) tentatively scheduled a vote on the Build Back Better Act, or the Democrats’ social welfare and climate change spending reconciliation act.

    Democrats smarting from election losses in Virginia and New Jersey on Tuesday are feeling new pressure to act on President Biden’s domestic agenda in the face of political headwinds that appear all but certain to cost the party its already narrow majorities in Congress. Factions negotiating over the massive reconciliation package traded blame for the drubbing even before the polls closed. By Wednesday, new fissures emerged as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) added four weeks of paid family leave to a bill even as Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), one of two moderates at the center of the negotiations, signaled he...

    While speaking to reporters on Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that while she is saddened by Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe’s defeat in the Virginia gubernatorial race, “the people have spoken.” And “We respect the results.” Pelosi also stated that the results in Virginia do not change the agenda for the House of Representatives. Pelosi said, “Well, the people have spoken. We respect the results. I’m very sad. Terry McAuliffe was a great leader and he was a great governor of the state.”

    Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) indicated Thursday she may accept President Joe Biden’s rebranded $1.85 trillion reconciliation framework. Her potential blessing on the framework could be enough to convince the far-left to unlock the $2.1 trillion “bipartisan” infrastructure bill House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA is attempting to pass Thursday.

    Hoyer: Democrats 'committed' to Oct. 31 timeline for Biden's agenda © Associated Press/J. Scott Applewhite The second-ranking House Democrat said Tuesday that party leaders remain intent on passing both pieces of President Biden's two-prong domestic agenda before the end of the month. That timeline is an ambitious one, as Biden and other Democratic leaders have struggled to unite the feuding factions of their party behind a massive package of family benefits and climate provisions. Only when that legislation is finalized do House leaders intend to move on a separate $1 trillion infrastructure bill, which has already passed through the Senate.

    Former Clinton adviser James Carville said Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that President Joe Biden and the Democrats were using an “idiotic” strategy to sell the Build Back Better agenda. Carville said, “Democrats in Congress are asked to do very popular things. It doesn’t take much courage to negotiate prescription drug prices. It doesn’t take much courage to raise taxes on the wealthy. It doesn’t take much courage for expand health care. Somebody has to get into the room, OK. We want to do ten things, we can do five. Take the other five and run them in 2022. They...
  • Internal battles heat up over Biden agenda (human infrastructure = shovel-ready jobs?)

    Democrats are plotting their next moves on a massive social spending package that advances much of President Biden’s economic agenda, but they’ll also have to resolve several internal battles that are starting to heat up. Congressional Democrats are refocusing their attention on the so-called human infrastructure proposal now that Senate passage of a short-term debt limit bill is in the rearview mirror. Lawmakers say the debt limit deal that resulted in a Senate vote on Thursday night clears the way for Democrats to devote their time to the spending package. “Senate Democrats will focus on passing [the] Build Back Better...
  • After 2 days of Democratic drama, fate of Biden's infrastructure agenda still unclear

    10/02/2021 3:14:34 PM PDT · by Libloather · 10 replies
    After two days of Democratic infighting and drama, the fate of President Joe Biden's infrastructure agenda remained unclear after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had to repeatedly put off a vote on a bipartisan infrastructure bill because progressive Democrats had vowed to vote against it -- unless there's a deal on a larger spending package. After voting to approve a 30-day extension of federal highway and transit funding, House members were told late Friday that they could return home for a two-week recess. But they were put on 72-hours' notice for the possibility of votes on various legislation, including infrastructure. Overnight,...

    CBB, via MSN ^ | Sept. 20, 2021 | Clare Foran and Manu Raju,
    Tensions are reaching a boiling point for Democrats as intense divisions between liberals and moderates threaten to derail key pillars of President Joe Biden's agenda and factions within the party increasingly cast blame on one another. The Biden agenda has entered a pivotal stage on Capitol Hill as House Democrats run up against a looming September 27 deadline to vote on a $1 trillion Senate-passed bipartisan infrastructure bill. Progressives have vowed not to vote in favor of the bipartisan bill unless a far larger economic package with a price tag of up to $3.5 trillion moves in tandem. But that...

    The Joe Biden clown show just ‘accidentally’ exposed the identities of CIA agents during a video conference with VP Harris. Outrage on social media ensued with intel officials like Richard Grenell asking, “who took this picture outing Intel officials?” The White House shared this image of Joe Biden meeting via video conference with Kamala Harris and other national security officials to discuss the ongoing crisis in Afghanistan. Conservatives noticed that the White House may have outed CIA operatives in the boxes labeled CIA and Doha Station.

    In case you haven’t heard the news, Robin of “Batman and Robin” fame has been outed as bisexual. And in case you were unsure if he was simply exploring his sexuality or had determined for sure that he was bi, DC Comics made it official: “Tim Drake [the third Robin in the series] dates boys.”Robin now joins more than 65 other LGBTQ+ superheroes and villains — but be assured, no one has any agenda at all. Who would think such a thing?Ten years ago, I wrote an article titled, “‘Mutant’ as a Codeword for ‘Gay’ in the X-Men Movies,” claiming...

    Just The News ^ | 07/20/21 | By John Solomon and Natalia Mittelstadt
    In a communications backdoor reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's infamous private server, President Biden used a personal email account during the Obama years to send information he was getting from the State Department as vice president to his globetrotting, foreign-deal-making son Hunter Biden. Messages, sometimes signed "Dad," from the email account robinware456@gmail.com were found on a Hunter Biden laptop seized by the FBI in December 2019 from a Delaware computer shop owner. Some of the messages from the vice president to his son obtained by Just the News were deeply personal, others were political in nature, and still others clearly addressed...

    Hoover Institution senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson discusses op-ed that calls out the Democratic Party as 'the party of wealth,' suggesting Republicans need to make the argument that they're 'the party of the middle class.' Wokeness comes from the elites who are wealthy and who cannot be effected personally by the policies they promote such as defund the police, or radical energy policies that drive up fuel prices.The elites have enough money that they can buy their own protection without relying on police.Similarly they are wealthy enough that fuel prices and inflation do not effect their life style These woke...
