    Approximately 10 million illegal aliens have walked across the open southern US border in the first three years of Joe Biden’s administration. Millions more are on their way. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas repeatedly lied and told Congress that the border is secure for three years. Don’t forget – Republican lawmakers refused to impeach Mayorkas earlier this month. Now Mayorkas is pushing amnesty for the approximately 40 million illegals in the country today. HOST: “What should we do with the 12 million illegals aliens already here in America?” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas: “The answer is quite clear and quite straightforward, and...

    Here are two things I’m very, very tired of: Hearing how deadly important it is that we send billions more taxpayer dollars to fix the problems of other countries and watching my own country degrade and decay while being told everything is fine.The federal government is allegedly in some sort of high-stakes standoff between House Republicans, Senate Democrats, and the White House over yet another request from Joe Biden to send tens of billions of dollars to Ukraine and Israel. Politico on Monday summarized the supposed conflict, writing that “the White House is insisting that its multifaceted funding request move...

    A former Senate investigator recently revealed that the Department of Justice (DOJ) tried to ask a federal court to cover up its efforts to spy on Congress for five years straight. Just The News reports that Jason Foster, the former chief investigative counsel for Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on the Senate Judiciary Committee, came forward on Tuesday with his revelations. Foster, who now leads the Empower Oversight center for whistleblowers, said that lawyers with Google provided him with documents confirming that the DOJ asked a federal judge to delay notifying him that his own data had been subpoenaed in a...
  • ‘As long as it takes’ isn’t good enough. What’s the endgame in Ukraine?

    The Hill ^ | 11/23/2023 | STEPHEN BLANK
    Though Congress has averted the indignity of another shutdown, both Congress and the Biden administration have failed our allies and American national interests. Congress failed because it did not appropriate the funding necessary for Ukraine and Israel. The administration failed as well, but not only because it did not secure the funding that both our allies need (in Ukraine’s case, needs desperately). The administration’s larger failure is that it continues to refrain from telling Congress, the American people and quite possibly Ukraine and our NATO allies what its objectives for Ukraine are.

    WASHINGTON—House lawmakers rushed to the exits just ahead of Thanksgiving, with a surge of announced retirements from members fed up with drama and partisanship on Capitol Hill. A dozen lawmakers—six Democrats and six Republicans—have said in November that they don’t plan to continue serving in Congress, the most in any month since at least 2011, based on data compiled by news site Ballotpedia. Just Tuesday, Republican Rep. Bill Johnson of Ohio, 69 years old, announced he would leave office early next year to lead Youngstown State University. The pickup in retirements comes as Republicans continue to fight a wrenching intraparty...

    The House Ethics Committee on Wednesday voted against opening an investigation into Democrat Rep. Jamaal Bowman for pulling the fire alarm. (snip) Insurrectionist Jamaal Bowman was caught on camera pulling the fire alarm in the Cannon building after Democrats unsuccessfully tried to adjourn the House of Representatives and go home hours before a government shutdown in September. Bowman tore down emergency exit signs before he pulled the fire alarm in an effort to obstruct a crucial vote. However, he continued to lie and gaslight after he committed a crime. “You know, I don’t know why this has gotten so much...
  • Five Reasons Congress Should Strip Funding from Leftist Internet Traffic Cop NewsGuard

    NewsBusters ^ | 11/21/2023 | Joseph Vazquez
    Leftist internet traffic cop NewsGuard is the farthest thing from being the unbiased media referee it purports to be. It is a government-funded operation designed to attack right-leaning media by going after their advertiser funding. There are at least five core reasons why Congress should strip funding from NewsGuard in the latest National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) since it received a $750,000 taxpayer-funded grant from the Department of Defense. The state funding of a leftist, so-called journalism gatekeeper that deceptively bills itself as “apolitical” is case in point. Such efforts by the government to censor media it does not approve...

    Representative Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said on this week’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) might have the “same problem” as Rep. George Santos (R-NY), who is facing a resolution to be expelled from Congress after the evidence uncovered in the Ethics Committee’s investigation. Discussing the government potentially shutting down, anchor Maria Bartiromo asked, “How has your life changed now with the new Speaker? Do you think you are going to get the appropriations bills done with this new two-ladder approach Mike Johnson has come up with?”

    Federal government workers from the State Department to NASA are circulating open letters demanding that President Joe Biden pursue a cease-fire in Israel's war against Hamas. Congressional staffers are picking up microphones in front of the Capitol, speaking out to condemn what they say is the silence of lawmakers about the toll on Palestinian civilians.

    Hamas has already penetrated American society, and CAIR is the tip of the spear. After Hamas massacred 1,400 men, women, and children in Israel last month, FBI Director Christopher Wray warned that the terror group “and its allies” could inspire attacks on Americans “here on our own soil.” He also told the Senate that the FBI is conducting “multiple, ongoing investigations” into people affiliated with the U.S.-designated terrorist group. What Wray didn’t say is that the FBI has been investigating Hamas’ biggest ally in America for the past 30 years — without seeking any charges. Launched in 1994 as a...

    There are few things more frightening to leftist Americans than a Christian conservative who has political power. That’s why the unexpected, out of the blue rise to power of Rep. Mike Johnson sent shock waves through the left, as if to say, “These religious fanatics are trying to take over the country! Soon they’ll be imposing the Christian version of Sharia on every American! Danger!”Johnson even had the temerity to say this in an interview with Sean Hannity, “I am a Bible-believing Christian. Someone asked me today in the media, they said, 'It's curious, people are curious: What does Mike...

    Republican Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) attempted to question FBI Director Christopher Wray about two vehicles he described as “ghost buses” that arrived in the early hours of Jan. 6, 2021, in D.C. On Wednesday, Higgins asked Wray about unmarked “ghost busses” allegedly at the Capitol on J6 that were being used to transport agents. However, Democrat Glenn Ivey (D-MD) interrupted, demanding Wray’s microphone to be cut off so that Wray did not have to answer the question. “This has run over the time,” Ivey claimed. Higgins wrapped up his questioning with a final warning to the FBI director: “Your day...
  • House members get a screening of Hamas atrocities

    We all remember the holdout from the Los Angeles Times who refused to accept the notion that Hamas had beheaded babies during its attack on innocent civilians in Israel — he apparently would settle for nothing less than video of the beheadings to believe it was anything but Israeli propaganda. The IDF has held a couple of screenings for journalists of video taken by Hamas terrorists on October 7. Israeli actor Gal Gadot arranged for a screening in Los Angeles, which was crashed by Hamas sympathizers … the same ones tearing down posters of kidnapped children. Marc Rod of Jewish...

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who led the charge on removing Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House, has filed an ethics complaint against McCarthy after he reportedly assaulted Rep. Tim Burchett. As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, Andy Biggs of Arizona, Ken Buck of Colorado, Tim Burchett of Tennessee, Eli Crane of Arizona, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Bob Good of Virginia, Nancy Mace of South Carolina, and Matt Rosendale of Montana got fed up with McCarthy selling out to Democrats and decided America needed a new Speaker. But McCarthy would not go quietly. Gaetz and Mace also revealed that McCarthy...

    A short-term bill that will stave off a partial government shutdown for at least another two months cleared the House of Representatives Tuesday evening, bringing lawmakers one giant step closer to keeping federal operations going after 11:59 p.m. Friday. The 336-95 vote represented a win for House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), who unveiled his plan for a so-called “laddered” continuing resolution (CR) Saturday. A contingent of conservative Republicans quickly came out in opposition to the bill, which they complained lacked spending cuts. However, 209 Democrats offered their support and helped send the measure on to the Senate, where it is...
