    The GOP’s demand for enforcement of U.S. border law is a “partisan” threat to worldwide democracy, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a letter to the Senate. “We cannot let partisan politics get in the way of defending democracy; that would be playing right into the hands of [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and [China President] Xi [Jinping],” Schumer said in the November 26 letter describing his plans for December.

    The House approved a measure late Tuesday that would slash Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg's taxpayer-funded government salary to just $1. The bill - which was introduced by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga. - was passed via voice vote Tuesday as an amendment to the 2024 Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act, the standalone funding bill for the General Services Administration, Securities and Exchange Commission and other related agencies. "I’m proud to announce my amendment to FIRE Pete Buttigieg just PASSED the House. Pothole Pete staged fake bike rides to the White House and used private planes funded by taxpayers...

    National security spokesperson John Kirby on Thursday made clear that President Biden would veto a bill that includes only funding for Israel’s war against Hamas if it were sent to his desk instead of a combination aid package he’s proposed that would also help Ukraine. “The president would veto an Israel-only bill. I think we have made that clear,” Kirby said when pressed on if Biden would be against a clean Israel funding bill. House Republicans have unveiled a bill that would provide $14.3 billion in aid for Israel, in exchange for cuts to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that...

    Hoping to avoid a repeat of the Afghanistan evacuation debacle where thousands of unvetted Afghans were able to enter the U.S. after fleeing Kabul, GOP Reps. Tom Tiffany (R-Wis.) and Andy Ogles (R-Tenn.) have introduced a bill to prevent refugees with Palestinian visas from resettling in the United States. The “Guaranteeing Aggressors Zero Admission Act” — the GAZA Act — will prevent Joe Biden from issuing any visas to refugees who carry a passport issued by the Palestinian Authority.We can't let President Biden abuse our parole and visa rules to bring unvetted Palestinians into American communities the way he did...

    The United States may have avoided a government shutdown on Saturday – but the lack of additional funding for Ukraine in the spending bill has left some residents in the war-torn nation nervous.Though US President Joe Biden lauded the deal reached by lawmakers, he also acknowledged the lack of new funding for Ukraine, vowing Washington “will not walk away” from Kyiv. Meanwhile, a bipartisan group of leaders in the US Senate also promised to vote on more aid for Ukraine.For some in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, the drama that has engulfed Congress for the past week is little more than...
  • House Short-Term Spending Bill Fails as Government Barrels Toward Shutdown

    The House rejected a short-term spending bill on Friday designed to keep the government open through the September 30 deadline, making a government shutdown almost inevitable. Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) continuing resolution (CR) failed 198-232 despite his inclusion of significant border security measures included to coax skeptical conservatives. Twenty-one Republicans opposed the measure which would have extended government funding for 30 days. McCarthy is expected to meet with his Republican colleagues Friday afternoon to discuss a path forward. Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN) alerted colleagues that votes are expected Saturday, a change from the previous schedule.

    We’re regret to inform you that Bill Gates is at again, pushing his “fuzzy science.” Gates is now advocating for the removal of 70 million acres of trees to combat “global warming.” Yes, this sounds harebrained, but could there be more to Gates’ agenda than just chopping down trees in the name of lowering carbon dioxide? Many critics who view Gates as a constant schemer with a vision for a New World Order suspect he has an even bigger plan in the works. More on that below. First, the background from Slay News: Gates’s organization, Breakthrough Energy, has plowed $6.6...

    Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) said Tuesday he will introduce legislation dubbed the “Freedom to Breathe Act” which will effectively ban federal mask mandates. The act would prohibit President Joe Biden and federal agencies from implementing face mask requirements requiring submission from public transit passengers or students in schools. “The bill, if passed into law, would prevent the reimposition of federal mask mandates in the United States — particularly in public schools and on airplanes and public transportation systems. It would only apply through the end of 2024.

    Bill Richardson, a former two-term Democratic governor of New Mexico and later U.S. ambassador to the United Nations has died. He was 75. The Richardson Center for Global Engagement, which he founded, said in a statement Saturday that he died in his sleep at his home in Chatham, Massachusetts. "Governor Richardson passed away peacefully in his sleep last night. He lived his entire life in the service of others — including both his time in government and his subsequent career helping to free people held hostage or wrongfully detained abroad. There was no person that Governor Richardson would not speak...

    A viral video showing a group of friends fighting over an expensive birthday dinner bill has sparked a heated debate about splitting the cheque. A U.S. content creator from Atlanta, Georgia, posted a clip of his friend’s birthday dinner descending into chaos after the group received a $4,600 bill at the end of the night. The video poster named Viccgotti can be seen animatedly arguing that he should not have to split the enormous bill for his friend’s meal, instead arguing he should only pay for what he ate. But the woman who is celebrating her birthday suggests she...

  • Senate Democrats Sneak Gun Control Into Military Funding Bill

    07/24/2023 8:59:21 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 35 replies
    Senate Democrats are attempting to sneak an authorization of an outdated gun control law into the "must pass" National Defense Authorization Act, also known as the US Military budget. The law in question is the 1988 Undetectable Firearms Act, which was championed by groups like Handgun Control Inc, now known as the Brady Campaign. The Act set the stage for the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. Gun Owners of America is working in Congress today to ensure that history does not repeat itself with either of these attacks on your rights. The Act itself bans any firearm that cannot be detected...

    House and Senate Democrats on Tuesday reintroduced an election overhaul package, in a rebuke to Republicans who, according to House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, are seeking to “turn back the clock” on democracy. Jeffries was joined by fellow New Yorker and Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer and other Democratic leaders to tout the Freedom to Vote Act, which they said would expand voter access, support local election workers and limit the influence of dark money and partisan gerrymandering on elections. “Democracy is facing unprecedented threats,” Schumer said at the news conference in the Lyndon Baines Johnson Room of the...

    American taxpayers will foot a more than $135 million bill to cover care, food, and housing costs for border crossers and illegal aliens living in the sanctuary city of New York City, Democrats announced this week. Since the spring of last year, more than 74,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have arrived in New York City — an inflow that Mayor Eric Adams (D) has said “is not sustainable,” though he has not urged President Joe Biden’s administration to reduce overall illegal immigration.

    President Biden said Wednesday that he believes that things are going according to plan so far for the House to pass the bipartisan debt ceiling package despite several Democrats and Republicans vowing to vote in opposition of the measure. “We’re going to deal with the debt ceiling,” the president told reporters in the Oval Office. “I think things are going as planned, God willing.” Biden said he is hopeful that by the time he lands in Colorado later Wednesday evening ahead of a planned address to the U.S. Air Force Academy, the bill will have passed the House. The vote...

    The link is a download of the McCarthy/Biden bill. Read it. We got the shaft again. The devil is in the details. We got nothing and the dems got everything. The cuts to spending are too low and places no limits on borrowing. After factoring in a small cut to discretionary spending over the next 2 yrs, we are still talking about $6T more or less in spending because of large increases in spending elsewhere. The bill doesn’t actually set a debt limit. Rather it suspends the debt limit until Jan. 2, 2025, and there is no actual amount capping...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of “CNN This Morning,” Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) reacted to claims by some Republicans in Congress that there are no wins for Democrats in the debt ceiling bill by stating that in “most of the briefings that I’ve been in, people talked about how much worse it could have been.” After playing clips of House Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Rep. Dusty Johnson (R-SD) saying that Democrats didn’t get any wins in the deal, co-host Poppy Harlow asked, “Do you agree with that assessment?”
