    A total of 32 House and Senate Republicans helped push Biden’s $1.2 trillion infrastructure package over the finish line, most of whom have been showered with campaign cash from the leading lobbying group behind the bill — the US Chamber of Commerce. Lawmakers run for office, grabbing donations from interest groups, then, after their election, voting for legislation supported by those special interest groups despite their constituents’ opposition. The Chamber had been lobbying for Biden’s infrastructure bill, since the start of the year. By July, Open Secrets reported the Chamber had spent more than $12 million lobbying for the bill...
  • Congress approves alcohol monitors in ALL new cars to stop drunk driving in Biden's new $1.2T in infrastructure package

    Congress is requiring in its $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill that automakers install monitoring systems in their cars to stop drivers from operating their vehicles while intoxicated. Monitoring systems to stop drunk drivers would roll out in all new vehicles as early as 2026, according to the new legislation. Some convicted drunk drivers already have to use breathalyzer devices attached to their vehicles' ignition interlock. By blowing into a tube, the system will disable the vehicle if the individual's blood alcohol level is above the legal threshold. The Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety (DADSS) program is a public-private partnership partially...

    A cadre of moderate House Republicans saved President Biden’s $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal from defeat on Friday after far-left Democrats rebelled against the legislation. 13 House Republicans, including never-Trump acolytes like Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, joined with 215 Democrats to narrowly pass the bill. Given the narrow margin that Democrats control the House, Mr. Biden could only afford three defections.

    The RINOs are the biggest issue in the GOP.(maybe the country) RINO Senator Bill Cassidy told Republicans to move on from the 2020 election. This is despite the widespread irregularities and cases of fraud that have been found. From Newsweek: Senator Bill Cassidy warned fellow Republicans on Sunday that the party will lose in the 2024 election if they continue efforts to relitigate the results of the 2020 election. “If we relitigate 2020 over and over again, it won’t change the result in 2020, but we are sure to lose in 2024,” the Louisiana Republicans said on NBC‘s Meet the...

    GOP Cassidy said, “I am pro-life. Let’s be clear, George, the ruling on SCOTUS was the plaintiffs did not have standing. It had nothing to do with the constitutionality of Roe v. Wade. It was only on if the plaintiffs had standing. People are using it to gin up their base to distract from disastrous policies in Afghanistan, maybe for fund-raising appeals. I wish we would focus on issues as opposed to theater. It was about if they had standing, nothing to do with constitutionality. I think we should move on to other issues.” (Snip) “He added, “I think the...

    We’ve seen this happen time and time again. President Donald Trump endorses an establishment Republican instead of the outsider, and then they turn around and stab him in the back. We saw this with Bill Cassidy in Louisiana, where Trump could have endorsed my good friend and patriot Col Rob Maness, but chose to go with Cassidy, instead, since he believed he had the best chance of winning. Then, he turned around and voted to impeach Trump. History is repeating itself in South Carolina. Lin Wood campaigned to become the chairman of the South Carolina GOP in an attempt to...

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said his optimism on a bipartisan infrastructure bill was “short-lived” following President Joe Biden’s remarks that he would consider vetoing the bill if it doesn’t include a sweeping reconciliation package. His comments came shortly after Biden endorsed the bipartisan deal to spend $1.2 trillion over eight years before stating that “If only one comes to me, this is the only one that comes to me, I’m not signing it“ McConnell accused Biden of “caving” to the far left following the bipartisan breakthrough and offering mixed messaging on the matter.

If they don’t come, I’m not signing it. Real simple,” Biden said, when reporters asked how he planned to get both measures through Congress at the same time.

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and a group of Republican conservatives have struck a deal to allow a Friday vote on a bill setting up a bipartisan Jan. 6 commission, which will let senators leave Washington for the Memorial Day recess early Friday afternoon. The deal, which was approved by the entire Senate after being hotlined, will postpone the final procedural votes and the final up-or-down vote on a bill to improve U.S. competitiveness with China until next month. But it means that Republicans won’t be able to delay consideration of the China bill into the holiday weekend, which...

    Senate Republicans on Friday blocked an independent, bipartisan commission to study the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.Eager to put the events of that day and former President Trump’s role in it behind them, Republicans blasted the commission proposal as a partisan attempt by Democrats to keep both in the news during next year’s pivotal midterm elections.The bill fell in the first legislative filibuster of the year as it failed to get the 60 votes needed to advance. The vote was 54 to 35 to move the bill forward, with a handful of Republicans breaking ranks — Sens. Mitt...

    “Murkowski tells me she’s going to support the bipartisan January 6 commission bill,” a Huffington Post reporter tweeted. Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA) are two other Republicans who have indicated sympathy for creating a commission to distract from the failed polices of the Biden administration. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has suggested she opposes the commission in its current form and is demanding changes. It is worth noting Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) is a “no” vote on the commission. He was one of the Senators who voted to convict former President Trump during his impeachment trial. Moderate Sen....

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said on Monday that he would support a House-passed bill to create a commission to probe the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. Romney’s comments make him the first GOP senator to say that they would vote for the bill, which needs the support of 10 Republicans to pass the Senate. Asked how he would vote if Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) tries to start debate on the House bill, a move that requires 60 votes to defeat a filibuster, Romney told reporters, “I would support the bill.” Romney wasn’t asked how he would vote...

Now he’s back. Team Demented touts their Get America Back on Track tour. Despite the train reference, Biden appeared in Louisiana to tout his $2T infrastructure boondogggle.

    With ominous rumblings about vaccine passports, perpetual contact tracing, and other means of government and corporate surveillance, totalitarian spying on U.S. citizens seems closer than we could have imagined. Now the Senate has stepped in – again – to ramp up surveillance in the realm of higher education.For several years, even so-called conservative Republican senators have pushed bills to allow the feds to track and compile data on any student from any institution of higher education (IHE) for the rest of his or her working life. The excuse for this startlingly intrusive initiative is twofold. First, lifetime tracking will allow...
