    According to a source familiar with the situation, embattled New York Republican Rep. George Santos informed House Republicans on Tuesday that he will resign from his committee positions. Santos reportedly told House Republicans in a closed-door meeting that will step down from his positions on the House Small Business Committee and the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee because “he’s a distraction” after it was revealed after his election that several aspects of his resume are fabrications. Santos has faced numerous calls for his resignation, even from within the Republican Party despite the Republicans’ extremely slim majority in the House....

    Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy wants to give Ilhan Omar the boot from her committee assignments, but it’s looking like roadblocks might be in place that stop him from doing so.There’s one roadblock in particular that McCarthy is facing: he might not have the votes necessary to give Rep. Omar the same boot he gave Swalwell and Schiff, as The Hill reported, saying that Rep. Victoria Spartz of Indiana and Rep. Nancy Mace of South Carolina have both indicated that they won’t back the move.Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy wants to give Ilhan Omar the boot from her...

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif) complains that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s determination to keep him off the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) “is so unfair.” McCarthy defended his position, pointing out that “Swalwell’s long-term sexual liaison with a Chinese spy indicates that he should not be privy to the kind of sensitive national security information that the HPSCI deals with on a regular basis.” Swalwell called McCarthy’s explanation “unconvincing. President Biden stored classified documents at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, DC. This Center was funded by Chinese Communist Party money and included sharing...

    Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) blasted Rep Eric Swalwell (D-CA) at a press conference Thursday, telling reporters they would never give the Democrat a committee position if they received the same briefing from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that he did. “Let me phrase something very direct to you: if you got the briefing I got from the FBI, you wouldn’t have Swalwell on any committee,” McCarthy told reporters. Breitbart News published an explosive exclusive report in August 2021 regarding a classified report indicating Swalwell was in an intimate sexual relationship with a Chinese spy named Fang...
  • Journalist Paul Sperry Has More to Say, as Adam Schiff Starts Acting Nervous

    Journalist Paul Sperry is not going quietly into the night — as we reported, he’s been calling out the effort by Rep. Adam Schiff’s office to silence him, to get him suspended from Twitter as well as to shut down his reporting about things that Schiff didn’t want to be exposed. In articles for RealClearInvestigations, I outed his anonymous “whistleblower” from the first impeachment of President Trump. It was Eric Ciaramella, a Democrat who had worked in the Trump White House as an Obama holdover. I also exposed Ciaramella’s prior relationship with one of Schiff’s top staffers on the impeachment...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Sunday condemned House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's (R-CA) plans to kick her off the House Foreign Affairs Committee as hypocritical. Omar was asked about McCarthy's repeated promises to yank her committee assignments during an appearance on MSNBC's Yasmin Vossoughian Reports. The progressive lawmaker was specifically questioned about if there were any developments on the matter in the days since McCarthy had secured the speaker's gavel. "I have not [received any updates]," Omar said. "It’s my understanding that we obviously have to get the rules package done. Hopefully, Monday, when we reconvene, that is on top of...
  • Dems' weaponization of government to be probed finally?

    01/02/2023 8:13:22 AM PST · by rktman · 16 replies ^ | 1/1/2023 | Bob Unruh
    That the federal government has been weaponized for some years already is evident by the fact the FBI interfered in the 2020 presidential election by telling social media to suppress damaging information about the Biden family. And that the government considered parents who object to radical leftist agendas in their schools as domestic terrorists. And the fact the FBI colluded with conspiracists to create the now-debunked "Russia" claims during the 2016 election. And the fact that pro-life protesters are being rounded up by SWAT teams for opposing the abortion industry's wanton killing of the unborn. Now a report at PJMedia...

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said on this week’s broadcast of FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that he would keep his promise to bar Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and Adam Schiff (D-CA) from committees if elected Speaker of the House. Bartiromo asked, “What are you going to do in terms of these Democrats that you have on such important committees? You’ve talked in the past about removing Ilhan Omar, about removing Adam Schiff, about Eric Swalwell. Will you deliver?”

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) confirmed Monday that he plans to remove three high-profile Democrats from their committee positions if Republicans take back the chamber this November and he wins the Speaker’s gavel the following January. In an interview with Breitbart, McCarthy vowed to kick Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) off the House Intelligence Committee, as well as remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from the House Foreign Affairs Committee

    The Tampa Bay Times ^ | November 29, 2020 | Tampa Bay Times Editorial Board
    Proponents have called the state’s massive new toll road project a monumental opportunity and a thoughtful plan for smart growth. The 330 miles of new highways will curb interstate congestion, bolster the economy and facilitate hurricane evacuations, they say. In short, the argument goes, the roads would be a good investment. So why is it that so many of the preliminary studies are at best lukewarm on the idea? And the latest reports only add to the list of reasons to reconsider the controversial project. The tolls roads, dubbed the Multi-use Corridors of Regional Economic Significance, were largely pushed by...

    **SNIP** The short answer is “Nobody knows for sure.” The resolution passed by the House laying out procedures for the impeachment process was quite general and basically dictated the order in which various committees would operate (with Judiciary being the final stop before a likely vote on articles of impeachment against Donald Trump). And the committee’s disclosures of procedures have mainly dwelled on the opportunities being given to (and likely rejected by) the president and/or his counsel to appear at the hearings and call and examine witnesses. **SNIP** It’s unclear whether that “third phase” will happen. In a letter dated...

    Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) continues to “call the shots” for the panel while battling brain cancer in Arizona, the committee’s No. 2 Republican says. “I’m chairing the meetings, but we’re chairing the meetings consistent with what John feels we should be doing,” Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) said in a clip released Friday of an interview for C-SPAN’s "Newsmakers." “In fact, actually deciding on what hearings we’re having, that’s a decision that’s coming out of the chairman, who is John McCain.

    President Donald Trump is tapping GOP New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to lead the administration’s efforts to combat rampant opioid addiction and heroin abuse nationwide. Christie’s position is reportedly part of the White House Office of American Innovation, a new initiative led by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner that is being described as a “SWAT team” of business leaders that will tackle a range of government failings. An anonymous White House spokesman said Monday the announcement is expected this week, after The Washington Post broke the development Sunday evening, reports The Associated Press.

    House Speaker John Boehner’s top allies are racing out the door to retirement, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday. Top Boehner allies that are retiring in 2014 include four committee chairmen: Reps. Mike Rogers (R-MI) of the Intelligence Committee, Buck McKeon (R-CA) of the Armed Services Committee, Doc Hastings (R-WA) of the Natural Resources Committee and Dave Camp (R-MI) of the Ways and Means Committee. One of Boehner closest friends, Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA), is retiring this year, and another—Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID)—may lose his seat in a primary in Idaho against conservative Bryan Smith. “In a Capitol where accomplishments are...

    I went to my first Republican State Committee Meeting that was held at the Little Rock Peabody. I was able to record some of the speeches. Most of the meeting was about rules and how to operate the Republican Party of Arkansas. After a lunch break, they had some training sessions. I confirmed that Republican County Committees can refuse funds and support for a Republican who acts like a liberal. With things like Teague-Gate, another Republican US House Bill stabbed in the back by a Republican US Senate "Gang", and no punishment from state or national GOP leadership, when is...

    There are about 300 Commission working “hard” for the people of California. The Nursing Commission allows felons and perverts to continue to work in hospitals and the home. Then you have the Medical Board that allows doctors on drugs to continue to operate and treat patients. One of my favorites is the Hair Braiding Commission.. You know that only State “licensed” people should be allowed to braid your hair—the rest are amateurs. “On July 1, 1998, a pair of undercover police officers posing as husband and wife walked into Braids by Sabrina, a small shop in Compton, Calif.

    Admittedly, the Egyptian uprising, the nullification of Obamacare and the ongoing ramifications of "Snowpocolypse 2011" could render the controversy about an MTV original program insignificant by comparison. After all, MTV is only out to destroy an entire generation. No big deal. Every adult - not just parents - should take the time to learn about the MTV show "Skins," a new "teen drama" that the Parents Television Council (PTC) has deemed "the most dangerous show on TV." Be careful when you go hunting for information about "Skins" lest your spouse conclude you've developed an interest in child pornography. The publicity...

    When the Republican led 112th congress is sworn in next January, the magnitude of the turnover will be most evident on the Judiciary Committee. Instead of radical John Conyers heading the committee, we will have border champion Lamar Smith as chairman. Also, instead of Zoe Lofgren chairing the Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship, Steve King will lead that panel. Today, the Miami Herald is reporting that Congressman King plans to go after birthright citizenship during the next congress. While other Republicans are intimidated by the left's demagoguery and distortion of the 14th amendment, King realizes that the constitution never meant...

The Politico wanted me to talk to them about the fact that there were Republicans running around saying the Tea Party is responsible for the fact they didn't pick up the Senate. I'm not gonna comment on that. I'm gonna comment on it today because they got the story out there, it begs being placed in context, and of course nobody better than I, nobody better than me...
