    The president of the NAACP on Tuesday called on lawmakers to take legislative action on gun rights in the wake of a shooting that killed 18 children in Texas, saying “Don’t just post a tweet, pass a bill.” “There’s no statement. There are no words. I’m shattered for the community and frustrated by the lack of action by the government that should be working for the people,” NAACP President Derrick Johnson said in a statement on Tuesday. Johnson also said lawmakers must act immediately.

    Representative Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that he was “very confident” Democrats would be able to hold on to the majority in the House and Senate in the midterm elections this November. Partial transcript as follows: MARGARET BRENNAN: I want to get to you on some of this poll data that you also heard here specifically young people, Hispanics and half of Black Americans say the president has been too slow to react. His ratings on effectiveness are low. Perceptions of competence are low. A majority of Democrats now say the economy is bad. How...

    Domestic terrorism only means white supremacy in this bill. The bill creates: Domestic Terrorism Unit in the Office of Intelligence and Analysis of the Department of Homeland Security Domestic Terrorism Office in the Counterterrorism Section of the National Security Division of the Department of Justice. Domestic Terrorism Section within the Counterterrorism Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Reports submitted to Congress by said agencies will include (emphasis mine): (A) an assessment of the domestic terrorism threat posed by White supremacists and neo-Nazis, including White supremacist and neo-Nazi infiltration of Federal, State, and local law enforcement agencies and the uniformed...

    In his revised New York state congressional maps — the final version of which was released 12:17 a.m. Saturday — Special Master Jonathan Cervas tossed aside Democratic gerrymandering to create a slew of intriguing new districts, some of which could fracture the established political landscape. In Manhattan, the new 12th district will pit the East Side’s Rep. Carolyn Maloney against the West Side’s Rep. Jerry Nadler. The two liberal warhorses have been in Congress three decades. A new 10th district covering lower Manhattan and a slice of Brooklyn — suddenly without an incumbent — may create an opening for former...
  • Pelosi says Congress could pass ‘transformational’ Competes Act before July 4

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Thursday that Congress could pass the “transformational” Competes Act before July 4, saying they hope to celebrate its passage before the holiday. The Competes Act of 2022 would approve billions of dollars for programs to accelerate U.S. manufacturing of critical supplies and goods such as semiconductor chips, increasing U.S. might in sectors dominated largely by China. The bill is also intended to address the supply chain disruptions still plaguing the nation, which have helped fuel high inflation. At her weekly press conference, Pelosi said there is currently “a big lobbying effort” in Congress...

    Members of the House of Representatives can now order alcoholic beverages for delivery directly to their offices from 8 am to 4 pm. As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lamented the demise of Democrat legislation to protect abortions and feigned outrage over America’s “unconscionable” baby formula crisis, her administrative office ramped up benefits for lawmakers. House members received notification from the House Chief Administrative Officer announcing two new perks offered this week compliments of the chamber’s Democrat leadership: fully paid gym memberships and “House Drinks storefront” a brand new liquor and drinks outlet in the Rayburn House Office Building. And lawmakers...

    Congress must pass a proposed $40 billion Ukraine supplemental aid package by Thursday to avoid an interruption of U.S. weapons shipments to the embattled country, the Pentagon’s top spokesperson said Friday. “May 19 is the day we really — without additional authorities — we begin to not have the ability to send new stuff in,” press secretary John Kirby told reporters. “It’ll start impacting our ability to provide aid uninterrupted.”

    Even more bizarre than the subpoenas issued to sitting lawmakers are the circumstances surrounding their inception. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was officially subpoenaed by the Select Committee on Jan. 6 along with four other Republican members of the lower chamber in an unprecedented step on Thursday. Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Andy Biggs of Arizona, and Mo Brooks of Alabama are each demanded to offer testimony to the witch-hunt probe established by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi under threat of contempt charges that have been levied on those who’ve refused to comply. “The illegitimate January 6th...

    COVID-19 cases are rising across the United States, and the country is expected to be hit with a larger wave this fall and winter when the weather turns colder, with as many as 100 million Americans infected. The virus has been defanged to a large degree compared to the early days of the pandemic, by vaccines and by new treatments like the highly-effective Pfizer pills called Paxlovid.

    I remember passing the National Mall in Washington, D.C. last September where small white flags stuck up from the ground almost as far as I could see. On many of the flags were the names of loved ones lost in the pandemic. At that time, at least 673,484 people had died from COVID-19 in the United States. Today, just seven months later, that number has nearly doubled. Now, 1 million people in the United States have been lost to COVID-19. About 24 million more people are currently suffering from long COVID, which created at least 1.2 million disabled adults in...

    Alpha News recently sat down with Minnesota Rep. Jeremy Munson to discuss his ongoing congressional bid. Munson outlined a variety of objectives that primarily centered around establishing America-first economic policies, securing future elections and making sure farmers in Minnesota’s First Congressional District are not hampered by unnecessary regulations amid an impending food shortage. He also expressed his support for ending COVID-19 regulations and holding Dr. Anthony Fauci accountable for his role in the pandemic response. “He needs to be held accountable for lying to the American public,” Munson said. “He needs to go away. He needs to be held accountable...

    On April 14, congressional candidate Alexandra Hunt became an OnlyFans creator. The platform, which enables users to subscribe to creators for a monthly subscription fee ranging from $5 to $50, allows influencers, celebrities, and sex workers to make content and connect with their fans. But while almost anyone can set up an OnlyFans, the company's brand is more synonymous with explicit content than with political campaigns.

    Tuesday, on CNN’s “At This Hour,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) reacted to the leak of the Supreme Court’s draft opinion overturning the Roe v. Wade ruling. Warren advised that although the Supreme Court could overturn the landmark ruling, Congress “will get the final word on Roe v. Wade.” She added that with the midterm elections on the horizon, the ruling “is on the ballot.”

    WASHINGTON - The Biden administration’s new Disinformation Governance Board may be illegal and subject to a vote in Congress, a Republican senator is warning Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. In a letter to Mayorkas Monday, Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.) outlined a legal critique that could set in motion the board’s undoing - as the White House sought to tamp down public concern about the Big Brother-like panel and its controversial head, who has her own past of spreading disinformation. Hagerty wrote that the board may violate the Antideficiency Act, which says the executive branch can’t spend money unless Congress authorizes...

    A new bill introduced by Rep. Lauren Boebert would eliminate Biden’s Disinformation Governance Board, dubbed a ‘Ministry of Truth’ by critics, before it even got off the ground. The Department of Homeland Security recently announced that the new unit will focus primarily on “misinformation related to homeland security, focused specifically on irregular migration and Russia.” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas appeared on CNN Sunday to assert that the board will not have “operational authority” and will instead “disseminate those best practices to the operators that have been executing and addressing this threat for years.” Many saw a clear correlation between Elon...

    WORLD—According to sources, an eccentric immigrant entrepreneur from South Africa just accomplished more for free speech than Republicans have in decades of controlling the government, wielding Federal power, and spending trillions of dollars. "Wow! Who is this guy? He's really making us look bad here," said one Republican Senator. "This Twitter deal is such a huge step forward for freedom of expression! Wow! Imagine if other conservative wealthy people did stuff like that instead of funding our reelection campaigns? Um, wait—I didn't mean that. Scratch that. Are you recording this?" Experts concur that Twitter being purchased by a private entity...

    After the Civil War, Southern politicians fearful of losing their grip on power decried the influx of “carpetbaggers” from the North. Tennessee lawmakers today seem to have similar fears.On April 13, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, a Republican, returned SB 2616 to the legislature (meaning it became law despite his lack of signature). The bill requires any candidate running for Congress to have resided in the state for three years to run in primary elections. Given that the law is patently unconstitutional under Article I of the U.S. Constitution, you may wonder what suddenly inspired the Tennessee General Assembly to add...
