    A newly elected Republican member of Congress says she’ll file articles of impeachment against President-elect Joe Biden on Jan. 21, one day after his inauguration. U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) told Newsmax on Wednesday that she plans to introduce a measure to impeach Biden on his first full day in office next week. “I would like to announce on behalf of the American people, we have to make sure our leaders are held accountable, we cannot have a President of the United States who is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily...

    SAINT PAUL, MN—With Democrats in control of Congress, Americans are looking forward to seeing their elected representatives put the needs of the American people first. Democrats have responded by pursuing the one thing every American affected by devastating lockdowns needs: another Trump impeachment. According to experts, there are millions of struggling Americans-- many of whom are completely destitute-- wondering where their next Trump impeachment is coming from. Local unemployed waitress and single mother Alissa Martins spoke to reporters, saying she is "very happy" about this development. "I haven't made a dime in over 3 weeks," said the struggling young mother....

    Many Americans are very upset that President-elect Joe Biden will replace President Donald Trump. For most of them, it's not that they will miss Trump's unconventional and often unacceptable behavior. Instead, it's that they fear that the size and scope of government will grow so fast that it will permanently change the country they love. And this fear has intensified with the defeat of two Republican senators in the Georgia runoffs, resulting in Democrats regaining control of the Senate. At the margin, such a worry is justified. With 50 Democratic senators and control of both the House of Representatives and...

    President-elect Joe Biden is expected to unveil a major Covid-19 relief package on Thursday and his advisers have recently told allies in Congress to expect a price tag in the ballpark of $2 trillion, according to two people briefed on the deliberations. The Biden team is taking a "shoot for the moon" approach with the package, one lawmaker in close contact with them told CNN, though they added that the price tag could still change. The proposal will include sizable direct payments to American families, significant state and local funding -- including for coronavirus vaccine distribution and other emergency spending...

    Freshman congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene said she will attempt to impeach President-elect Joe Biden for abuse of power once he is sworn into office. The Georgia Republican, who has raised eyebrows for boosting conspiracy theories, announced the long-shot move Wednesday evening on Newsmax, just hours after the House voted to impeach President Trump for inciting an insurrection. “I would like to announce on the behalf of the American people we have to make sure that our leaders are held accountable,” Greene said. She claimed Biden is “willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresspeople from both parties condemned the attack on the Capitol that occurred Wednesday, pointing out that they're the only criminals allowed in the building. Capitol police removed the unauthorized criminals from the Capitol Building, allowing the officially voted-in criminals to resume operations. "We would like to remind Americans that we are the only looters allowed in here," said Nancy Pelosi after order was restored to the House. "Remember, you must show your official congressperson identification to prove you're an approved looter to get in here. Unauthorized looters will be removed from Capitol grounds."

    Now Congress Opens with a Prayer to Hindu God Brahma: Remember KALI on the Empire State Building? Is It any Surprise That the Fierce Judgment of God is Against Us? Yes, brethren – Congress has opened with a prayer to a demonic Hindu God. Almost six years ago, NYC celebrated the killing of the innocent babies by shining the image of Hindu Goddess KALI – Goddess of Destruction; also known as “The Dark one” and “She who is Death. Brahma is the “Creator god” in Hinduism. Satan must be ecstatically happy that the U.S. is recognizing a Hindu “creator” but...

    EXCLUSIVE: Constitutional Attorney Says Pence, Congress, Violated Constitution, Trump Can Use EAS To Circumvent Censorship "There is an insurrection going on inside of the entire government, funded, supported and fomented by foreign actors," said Attorney Ivan Raiklin. Speaking exclusively with National File on January 7, Constitutional Attorney Ivan Raiklin explained that President Donald Trump’s “only option” to defend the Constitution is to “activate the Emergency Alert System.” This comes as Big Tech companies have banned President Trump and many of his supporters from using their platforms just days after Congress certified the fraudulent Electoral College results on January 6.

    Rep. Alex Mooney (R-W.Va.) on Jan. 11 blocked Democrats from introducing a resolution via unanimous consent to call on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump. The Democrat-backed resolution calls on Pence and the Cabinet to “declare what is obvious to a horrified Nation: That the President is unable to successfully discharge the duties and powers of his office.” Democrats can now bring the resolution up for a vote on Jan. 12 on the resolution. Last week, Mooney was among the Republican lawmakers who didn’t vote to certify key states for President-elect Joe...

    Outgoing Capitol Police chief: House, Senate security officials hamstrung efforts to call in National GuardTwo days before Congress was set to formalize President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund was growing increasingly worried about the size of the pro-Trump crowds expected to stream into Washington in protest.To be on the safe side, Sund asked House and Senate security officials for permission to request that the D.C. National Guard be placed on standby in case he needed quick backup.But, Sund said Sunday, they turned him down.In his first interview since pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol last week, Sund,...

    In times of social crises in America, big tech billionaires are often amongst the first to speak up—though how they do so varies. Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, unlike many of his peers, didn’t directly speak about the riot that erupted in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday afternoon. But the second-richest man in the world did make it clear that he was watching the news and indeed had a strong opinion about the surreal events that transpired at the U.S. Capitol. Late Wednesday night, after police had cleared protestors from the Capital ground to allow Congress to resume vote counting...

    Liberal law professor Jonathan Turley on Saturday issued a warning about Democrats' long-term damage to the Constitution should they continue to press forward with their plans to impeach President Donald Trump (yet again) as his administration comes to a close. "In seeking his removal for 'incitement,' Democrats would gut not only the impeachment standard but free speech, all in a mad rush to remove Trump just days before the end of his term," Turley wrote in an opinion piece for The Hill.

    Congress used those riots to punt on its responsibility to "defend and protect" the United States Constitution. It refused to look at the irregularities and constitutional violations by those five states that changed election processes without legislative approvals as per the Constitution. It ignored the ballot harvesting that happened with COVID as the excuse. It ignored the vote switching from Trump to Biden as recorded for the Georgia Legislature and proved in Michigan.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told his Republican colleagues in the upper chamber that the earliest a second impeachment trial of President Trump would begin is January 20th, the day President-elect Joe Biden will be sworn into office. House Democrats are planning to impeach Trump with a single impeachment article charging him with 'incitement of insurrection' as anger swells over the ransacking of the United States Capitol by a mob inspired by the president. Democrats are demanding that Trump resign or face impeachment while just a handful of Republicans signaled they are willing to consider voting in favor of removing...
