  • Fizzling legislative agenda leaves Democrats wondering about midterms (not enough free crap)

    Democrats once hailed Build Back Better as the policy that could help them win the midterms. But as even the possibility of a scaled-back version of resident Biden’s signature legislation fizzles in the 50-50 Senate, some are wondering if the president will have anything comparable to campaign on as the election season inches closer. The White House considers the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure law passed last fall as a major legislative accomplishment. They also see Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill as a win. And they say the fight over some version of Build Back Better isn’t over. But some...

    The most significant political event in the last 18 months happened last week. No, it wasn’t the Pennsylvania primary, and it certainly didn’t have anything to do with the sham Jan. 6 committee. (Patrick Pleul/Pool via AP, File)It was the announcement by Elon Musk that he’s as mad as hell, and he’s not going to take this anymore. OK, he didn’t use those exact words from the 1976 movie “Network,” but he might well have been channeling the character Howard Beale when he announced to the world that he was voting Republican this year. News anchor Beale was characterized as...

    Like Trotsky following the Russian Revolution, Democrats want to keep society in a constant state of turmoil, conservative commentator and Constitutional Scholar Mark Levin says. In an appearance on “Unfiltered with Dan Bongino, Levin laid out the similarities between the philosophies of Trotsky and the Democrat Party, both of which rely on unending emergencies and anarchy:

    Republican-sponsored legislation aiming to limit the authority of the governor's use of an emergency declaration to bypass normal lawmaking was vetoed by Gov. Laura Kelly (D-Kan) who declared that "some issues are too critical to be decided by the normal processes of a democratic style of government. Health is one of those issues. Legislators lack the expertise to determine which health policies and protocols are best for the the people of this state." "If it had been up to the legislature we might never have implemented the lockdowns, vaccine mandate, and other measures that were needed to control covid," Kelly...

    Despite a new CBS News poll showing growing concern about inflation and President Biden's handling of the economy, Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries expressed optimism Sunday that his party could still hold on to its narrow majority in Congress in November's midterm elections. The New York lawmaker, who chairs the House Democratic Caucus, told "Face the Nation" that the president's early actions to fight the COVID-19 pandemic helped create millions of new jobs and "rescued the economy." His assessment came shortly after the release of the CBS News/YouGov survey showing that nearly 70% of Americans say the economy is bad —...
  • Migrants in Mexico dismayed by continuation of U.S. border policy that restricts asylum

    MONTERREY, Mexico (Reuters) - For thousands of migrants who have waited for months in northern Mexico, Monday was supposed to mark the moment when the U.S. government finally dropped a pandemic-era policy that has largely prevented them from seeking asylum in the United States. Instead, May 23 marked the latest setback for many migrants, after a federal judge in Louisiana blocked U.S. authorities from lifting the sweeping policy, known as Title 42, which since March 2020 has empowered U.S. agents to quickly turn back over a million migrants to Mexico and other countries. “First they said they were going to...

    A Republican amendment to the Domestic Terrorism Act intended to exclude prosecution of parents for criticizing school policies was rejected by the Democrat majority on the House Rules Committee. The amendment was championed by Rep. Mark Green (R-Tenn) who argued that "last fall, parents across the United States were accused of being 'domestic terrorists' for speaking out against their child's school's curriculum. My amendment would bar the federal government from initiating a terrorism accusation against parents for peacefully questioning the instruction of their children." House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) characterized the Democrats position as "an abuse of...

    Senate Democrats on Thursday introduced an ambitious new gun control legislation that would require all Americans to obtain a Department of Justice (DOJ) license with a 5-year limit before purchasing a single gun. The new bill would also give the government the power to confiscate guns if the license is revoked. This new legislation was introduced by Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Bob Menendez (D-NJ), and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn). ....... Snip........ The bill also authorizes “procedures to ensure that any firearm is removed from any individual when the individual’s license is revoked.” Confiscated firearms would only be returned to the owner...

    U.S.—The results of a CNN poll revealed that 52% of Americans are in favor of abolishing the nation's Democratic Republic in favor of a monarchy ruled by an Ultra MAGA King. Another 39%—mostly bureaucrats—are reportedly satisfied with the current system of government. The poll findings, released Thursday, have alarmed both Democrats and Republicans in government who are reportedly "shook" that citizens don't appreciate them. "I don't know why anyone would trade in an oppressive and corrupt totalitarian government for a monarchy ruled by divine right," said Rep Adam Schiff. "Frankly, I'm shocked people don't appreciate how much we lie to...

    The less than month-old Disinformation Governance Board established by President Biden has been "put on hold" due to backlash against the idea that the Board reminded too many people of the "Ministry of Truth" in George Orwell's distopian novel 1984. Given the chance to continue on the payroll with no job responsibilities, Nina Jankowicz decided to resign, saying "there's no point in me staying on if I'm not going to be allowed to censor anyone's erroneous statements or beliefs." Presidential Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre called this turn of events "tragic. We were putting together the most extensive and comprehensive suppression...
  • America LAST: US Senate REJECTS $48 Billion Aid Package For Small Businesses and Restaurants Just Hours After Approving ANOTHER $40 Billion for Ukraine – 34 RINOs Voted Yes for Ukraine and No for Americans

    On Thursday – just hours after approving another $40 billion in US taxpayer dollars for Ukraine – the US Senate blocked a bipartisan $48 billion aid package for restaurants, gyms, and other small businesses that have been struggling in Biden’s post-lockdown economy. Presumably, they can’t launder that money as easily as shuffling it off to Ukraine, so American business owners get the shaft yet again from its traitorous elected officials. In other words, just another day in the DC Swamp… Needing 60 votes to move forward, the Senators killed the package with a 52-43 vote. Five Senators refrained from casting...

    President Joe Biden’s approval rating dipped to the lowest point of his presidency in May, a new poll shows, with deepening pessimism emerging among members of his own Democratic Party. Only 39% of U.S. adults approve of Biden’s performance as president, according to the poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Research, dipping from already negative ratings a month earlier. Overall, only about 2 in 10 adults say the U.S. is heading in the right direction or the economy is good, both down from about 3 in 10 a month earlier. Those drops were concentrated among Democrats, with just...

    Tens of millions of Americans could be thrown into a summer of hell as a megadrought, heatwaves, and reduced power generation could trigger widespread rolling electricity blackouts from the Great Lakes to the West Coast, according to Bloomberg, citing a new report from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), a regulatory body that manages grid stability. NERC warned power supplies in the Western US could be strained this summer as a historic drought reduces hydroelectric power generation due to falling reservoir levels and what’s expected to be an unseasonably hot summer. Compound the hellacious weather backdrop with grids decommissioning...

    Democrats, months away from the midterm election where the GOP is favored to take back the House, are looking to pass bills to show they have been able to do something productive for the country while having total control of Washington, DC, as Republicans also look to put them on the record opposing hard-line bills. As Politico pointed out, the Democrats have used this past week to pass legislation on a wide range of areas by playing “whack-a-mole” with the multiple national crises, such as a shortage of baby formula, skyrocketing inflation, and high gas prices, so they can buff...
