    Washington Examiner ^ | Feb 2nd | by Kerry Picket
    House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs defended Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Tuesday amid a Democratic plan to strip the controversial Georgia congresswoman of her committees. “Since taking back the House majority in 2019, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat conference have led the most radical agenda in our nation’s history, stopping at nothing to overthrow and undermine the Trump presidency and to demonize fellow Republicans in Congress," Biggs said in a statement. "They seek to silence and discontinue conservative voices, while expanding their progressive, anti-American schemes. The Left is aided by their allies in the mainstream media, who issue...
  • Liz Cheney Faces Blowback After Embracing Impeachment

    01/13/2021 10:27:28 PM PST · by Helicondelta · 29 replies ^ | 01/13/2021
    Conservative hard-liners are moving against House GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney after she pledged to impeach President Donald Trump — the first serious signs of blowback since she made her position public. Less than 24 hours after Cheney said she would vote to remove Trump from office for his role in the deadly Capitol riots, some of the president’s closest allies are now taking steps to oust the No. 3 Republican from leadership. Members of the Freedom Caucus began circulating a petition Wednesday to force a special conference meeting so they could debate and vote on a resolution calling on...

    A group of GOP lawmakers led by House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) is calling on the Trump administration to temporarily stop issuing any new guest-worker visas amid the coronavirus pandemic. In a letter sent to President Trump on Wednesday, the lawmakers praised the White House’s decision to limit the number of immigrants coming into the country during the health crisis, but argued more action needs to be taken to ensure Americans who have lost their jobs due to the outbreak have ample opportunities to find new employment. “We should not force Americans to compete with foreign nationals while...

    While nine members of the Texas House Freedom Caucus thanked Gov. Greg Abbott for “solid and steady leadership during this historic crisis,” the signers of a letter written Tuesday agree the time has come to let the economy breathe again during the coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak. “The clear messages we are hearing [from constituents] lead us to this conclusion: Texas must immediately increase healthcare and business activity while maintaining protections for the most vulnerable Texans,” the letter said. “Accordingly, we respectfully ask that you loosen your state-wide executive order to the greatest extent possible while giving local jurisdictions the flexibility to respond...
  • While everyone focuses on the coronavirus, new Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is fixing the White House

    As a Congressman and co-founder of the House Freedom Caucus, Mark Meadows unified conservatives while rankling moderate Republicans. As the new White House Chief of Staff, he’s unifying allies of President Trump and eliminating those who aren’t fully on board with the White House agenda. Few are noticing the multitude of moves being made because nearly all media attention is being paid to the coronavirus crisis. That’s just fine for Meadows who prefers the moves to be seamless and under the radar. The only major move reported so far was removing Stephanie Grisham as Press Secretary, replacing her with the...

    Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), a top ally of President Trump, announced Thursday morning that he will retire from Congress at the end of his term. Meadows, a four-term lawmaker who represents part of western North Carolina, said in a statement that he “struggled” with leaving what he has long considered a “temporary job.” “For everything there is a season. After prayerful consideration and discussion with family, today I’m announcing that my time serving Western North Carolina in Congress will come to a close at the end of this term,” Meadows said. “This was a decision I struggled with greatly.”

    As House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff started to recall the transcript of the phone call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky during Thursday's hearing with the director of national intelligence, his colleagues noted that something didn't sound right. Schiff claimed that Trump told Zelensky, "I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand, lots of it, on this and on that, I’m going to put you in touch with people." When a few Republicans on the panel noted those words were not in the transcript, Schiff clarified that his summary was meant as "parody." That...

    Arizona’s Andy Biggs will become the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, taking over for North Carolina’s Mark Meadows. Biggs was elected by caucus members to succeed Meadows in a Tuesday meeting. The House Freedom Caucus is a conservative congressional group known for a willingness to challenge the Republican establishment, creating thorns in the side of Paul Ryan and John Boehner alike. Most in the caucus are strong supporters of President Trump. Since arriving in the House of Representatives in 2017 to represent Arizona’s Fifth congressional district, Biggs has made a name for himself as a liberty-inclined conservative willing to...

    Texas Republican congressman and House Freedom Caucus stalwart Louie Gohmert called former special counsel Robert Mueller an “anal opening” Monday as Mueller prepares to testify before Congress after finding no Russian collusion on the part of President Trump. “He’s done some irreparable damage to some things and he’s got to answer for them. It reinforced the anal opening that I believe Mueller to be,” Gohmert stated to Politico.

    Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) has opted to quit the House Freedom Caucus in the wake of his comments in support of moving forward with impeachment proceedings. The Freedom Caucus voted to condemn the Michigan Republican's remarks last month, but the group opted not to force him out despite a divide among members. Amash was the first — and only — Republican House member to publicly say he thought President Trump had committed impeachable offenses after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. He has since doubled down multiple times on his statement...

    It was unanimous. The House Freedom Caucus formally condemned Rep. Justin Amash's (R-MI) recent call to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump at a Monday meeting. Having read the Robert Mueller report in its entirety, Amash tweeted over the weekend that there were enough questions in there to suggest Trump obstructed justice and engaged in " impeachable conduct ." “It was every single person who totally disagrees with what he says,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said after the Freedom Caucus voted on Amash's Twitter thread. They did not go so far as to vote him out of the conservative caucus,...

    A band of Democrats who are demanding House rule reforms have yet to reach a deal with Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the group announced Friday, putting up a potential roadblock in Pelosi’s quest to reclaim the Speaker’s gavel. Nine Democrats on the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus have vowed to withhold their votes for Speaker unless the candidate agrees to overhaul the House rules. Pelosi, who has been open to such changes, met with the group last week and promised to put in writing the changes to which she would commit. But the Democrats say they have yet to receive...

    As Nancy Pelosi wrangles votes in her bid for House speaker, another leadership battle is playing out on the Republican side, where Kevin McCarthy faces a challenge from conservative Freedom Caucus co-founder Jim Jordan to lead the new GOP minority. Republicans lost the House majority in this week’s midterm elections, and conservatives are blaming the GOP establishment and angling for changes. McCarthy burned up the phone lines Thursday shoring up his support. And down ballot, the GOP will add a familiar name to the leadership lineup — Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, a daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney...

All three have consistent pro-life voting records. Here’s more: “I plan to run...

    House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) on Wednesday said that he is hopeful Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will testify before the House Judiciary Committee in the coming days. "We have a task force that has six Republicans, six Democrats, and so I fully anticipate that that's what it'll be, but the Department of Justice has not agreed to that yet, but hopefully, in the coming days that'll happen," he continued. Meadows' comments come after the New York Times reported last month that Rosenstein had openly discussed secretly recording President Trump in the Oval Office, and had discussed the...
