I’d love to see an actual REPUBLICAN on the ballot! Go get ‘em Cara Castronuova!”
  • U.S. Rep. Kathy Manning won't seek reelection: NC Democrat's district redrawn to favor GOP

    12/07/2023 12:32:29 PM PST · by CFW · 8 replies ^ | 12/7/23 | Will Duran
    Kathy Manning, a Greensboro Democrat who is the only Jewish person to ever represent North Carolina in Congress, won't seek reelection in 2024. Her district lines were redrawn earlier this year by Republican state lawmakers, who shifted her seat from a safe Democratic seat to a safe Republican seat. She called it an egregious example of gerrymandering that forced her to step down from Congress rather than run an unwinnable campaign. "As a Greensboro resident of forty years, I am disgusted by the callous disregard of Republican leaders for the citizens of my district," she said Thursday. "Politicians should not...

    The Piñon Post ^ | December 6, 2023 | Piñon Post staff
    Two out of New Mexico’s three congressional representatives refused to vote to condemn and denounce “the drastic rise of antisemitism in the United States and around the world,” with Congresswoman Melanie Stansbury (D-NM-01) being the only member of the delegation to vote for the measure. The measure read that the U.S. House “strongly condemns and denounces all instances of antisemitism occurring in the United States and globally; (2) reaffirms and reiterates its strong support for the Jewish community at home and abroad; (3) calls on elected officials and world leaders to condemn and fight all forms of domestic and global...

    Breitbart ^ | 12/07/2023 | KURT ZINDULKA
    President Zelensky dispatched his chief of staff to Washington this week to beg for continued military aid, warning that if the United States Congress does not approve President Biden’s request for tens of billions more in taxpayer money, Ukraine is at “big risk” of losing the war. There is growing panic in Kyiv about the future of the war against Russia as continued funding from both the United States and the European Union is increasingly in doubt as war fatigue sets in as Moscow’s invasion nears its second anniversary. In a full court press, President Zelensky sent his chief of...

    Speaker Mike Johnson said Tuesday that House Republicans are blurring footage from the Capitol attack before releasing it publicly because they don't want Jan. 6 rioters to be charged with crimes. "We have to blur some faces of persons who participated in the events of that day because we don’t want them to be retaliated against and to be charged by the DOJ," Johnson said Tuesday.

    A classified briefing for senators on the White House's request for aid for Israel and Ukraine became "heated" with Republican members storming out of the meeting Tuesday. The briefing, led by the secretaries of Defense and State as well as the director of national intelligence and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, was held behind closed doors to allow all 100 senators to ask questions about the administration's funding request. But it fell apart, senators from both parties said, after Republicans began asking about the border. GOP members in both chambers have demanded serious changes to immigration policy...

    Several gold bars discovered by federal agents in Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez's residence as part of a high-profile bribery investigation can be traced to a violent robbery a decade ago. According to a sprawling indictment unsealed by federal prosecutors in September, Menendez and his wife allegedly played a role in a years-long bribery scheme that involved the Egyptian government and local businessmen including Fred Daibes, a wealthy New Jersey real estate developer. Prosecutors revealed they retrieved multiple gold bars from Menendez's home which were allegedly used as payment in the scheme. At least four of the gold bars...

    Hotair ^ | 12/04/2023 | Jazz Shaw
    This took place on Thursday, but it’s looking increasingly real. In a move that the Daily Mail described as “humiliating” for Joe Biden, lawmakers cast a bipartisan vote to freeze the six billion dollars that the President had previously freed up for Iran as part of his hostage negotiation deal. The move drew the support of nearly every Republican but also attracted nearly 100 Democrats. Now it’s looking as if it might pass in the Senate as well. During a time when it’s been seeming as if common sense had been banned in Washington, we have lawmakers seemingly conceding that...

    In a recent development, The Gateway Pundit, one of the top conservative websites in the country today, reported that its access has been blocked on networks within both the United States House of Representatives and the Pentagon. On Thursday, sources from Capitol Hill informed The Gateway Pundit that attempts to access the website from the House network were unsuccessful. A staff member from Congressman Paul Gosar’s office detailed ongoing access problems for the past two weeks. “Wanted to notify you that I have been unable to access the Gateway Pundit on the House network for the past two weeks,” according...

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) predicted former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) will leave Congress by the end of the year, following former Rep. George Santos’s (R-N.Y.) historic expulsion Friday. “With Santos gone, you’re hearing it here first: the next GOP member to leave Congress will be @SpeakerMcCarthy,” Swalwell wrote in a post on X, formerly Twitter, on Saturday. “No way he stays,” he continued. “A guy who kidney punches his colleagues from behind is too afraid to serve out a full term with them. I bet he’s gone by end of year. What say you?” Swalwell’s reference to “kidney punches” pointed...

    The Biden administration on Monday sent Congress an urgent warning about the need to approve tens of billions of dollars in military and economic assistance to Ukraine, saying Kyiv’s war effort to defend itself from Russia’s invasion may grind to a halt without it. In a letter to House and Senate leaders and also released publicly, Office of Management and Budget Director Shalanda Young warned the US will run out of funding to send weapons and assistance to Ukraine by the end of the year, saying that would “kneecap” Ukraine on the battlefield. She added that the US already has...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | December 2, 2023 | Lindsay Wise
    Less than one month before Mike Johnson’s sudden ascent to the speakership, the Louisiana Republican, then a little-known member, joined with most GOP lawmakers to vote against $300 million in U.S. security assistance for Ukraine. Now, as speaker, Johnson has surprised many on Capitol Hill by publicly and repeatedly calling Ukraine aid a critical priority for the House. Where Johnson stands on Ukraine and how hard he plans to push for tens of billions of dollars in new aid could shape the future of the embattled country, just as the U.S. is facing questions about its commitment to Kyiv and...
  • Did the corrupt J6 committee destroy evidence of its own proceedings?

    American Thinker ^ | 12/02/2023 | Andrea Widburg
    The corrupt January 6 Committee, which culminated in a show hearing that would have made Stalin proud, conducted multiple witness interviews in the lead-up to the televised hearing. However, it refused to release any information about those interviews, except for anti-Trump, anti-MAGA leaks to the media. In theory, now that there’s a new Speaker in the House who is steadily releasing 41,000 hours of Capitol footage about events on January 6, we should also be seeing what the J6 Committee hid behind closed doors. However, that may not be possible. Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA), who chairs the House Administration Oversight...

    GATEWAYPUNDIT ^ | 11/28/2023 | jim hoft
    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...

    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.
