  • Democrat Rep. Dan Goldman to Anderson Cooper: “It Now Appears as if the House Republican Majority is Being Used by Russia to Interfere in the 2024 Election” (VIDEO)

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | February 21, 2024 | Cristina Laila
    Here we go again. The Democrats have dusted off their old Russia collusion hoax as we get deeper into election season. Democrat Rep. Dan Goldman absurdly claimed the Russians are interfering in the 2024 election in wake of the DOJ’s latest attack on the FBI informant who blew the whistle on the Biden-Burisma scandal. Biden’s DOJ is now alleging the FBI informant arrested last week “is actively peddling new lies that could impact U.S. elections after meeting with Russian intelligence officials in November.” The FBI’s confidential source, Alexander Smirnov, was indicted last week by Hunter Biden Special Counsel David Weiss...

    House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) said Wednesday on ABC’s “The View” that former President Donald Trump was leading a “growing pro-Putin faction in the Republican Party.” Jeffries said, “Donald Trump views himself as a Putinesque dictatorial figure.” He continued, “He said it and we should believe him that he wants to go down this road and that’s the problem that we’re encountering with some of my Republican colleagues that there’s a growing pro-Putin faction in the Republican Party and it’s led by Donald Trump, some other outside figures like Tucker Carlson and on the inside Marjorie Taylor Greene and...

    In coastal Ventura County, Republican Dirk Lay is in the middle of a fight that has already been settled in many other California counties. Lay, 64, wants local voters to support more GOP candidates, convinced their governance can tackle local issues and help grow a conservative base in an overwhelmingly blue region. The way forward is clear, he says: Ventura’s “establishment” Republicans need to make way for "pro-reform" Trump supporters like himself. Lay and a slate of two other candidates are running to unseat members of Ventura’s Republican Central Committee, a localized arm of the party staffed by volunteers who...

    Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the 2024 presidential election was about keeping former President Donald Trump and the “Putin wing of the Republican Party” from taking over the White House. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “What you say, doing what Donald Trump wants him to do. Donald Trump has not responded directly at all to Navalny’s death last night, he was attacking prosecutors at his rally in Michigan. He’s posted dozens of times on his Truth Social social media app calling Biden an incompetent president. So it’s not as he hasn’t been...

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” CNN Senior Political Commentator and former Obama Adviser Van Jones and columnist and author Ann Coulter sparred over the failed Senate border bill and the U.S. immigration system. After host Bill Maher argued that Democrats have turned the immigration issue around on Republicans, Jones said, “Look, it turns out there is a conspiracy to keep the border open, to flood the country with undocumented people, and it’s led by Donald Trump and the Republican Party, because, down there, open border. They had the opportunity to close it.” Later on, Jones stated, “It is...

    Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) wanted to talk about Ukraine and the need to stand up to Russian aggression before taking any questions from The Hill during a Wednesday interview. The veteran Senate GOP leader, a day removed from what he saw as a significant victory in the Senate’s passage of aid to Ukraine and Israel, said showing resolve to deter foreign aggression is the “single biggest issue we’ve had in a long, long time.” The Senate bill, approved Tuesday in a 70-29 vote, faces an uncertain future in the House after Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) issued a scathing...

    President Biden on Tuesday slammed Republicans who voted to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, arguing that history will not look kindly on those lawmakers. After a failed first effort to impeach Mayorkas, House Republicans eked out a narrow 214-213 vote to impeach the first Cabinet official since the 1870s. “History will not look kindly on House Republicans for their blatant act of unconstitutional partisanship that has targeted an honorable public servant in order to play petty political games,” Biden said in a statement after the vote.

    Appeals to authority among the political class are substitutes for actual policy arguments, especially when it comes to funding Ukraine.Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina apparently thinks you have to be a “well-briefed U.S. senator” to understand the nuances of the Ukraine war, and that ordinary voters are simply too ignorant to have an opinion on the matter.“Our base cannot possibly know what’s at stake at the level that any well-briefed U.S. senator should know about what’s at stake if Putin wins,” Tillis said on Monday, according to Punchbowl News. He then blasted fellow Republicans who “are being driven just...

    In an unusual session held on Super Bowl Sunday, the US Senate voted to move forward a substantial $95 billion aid package that will support Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, with no southern border security provisions. The package includes $60 billion for Ukraine and $14 billion for Israel. The vote garnered support from RINOs, with a final tally of 67-27.According to The Hill, Schumer offered Republicans the chance to vote on amendments in exchange for expediting the legislative process.“By a vote of 67-27, The Senate invoked cloture on Murray substitute amendment 1388 to H.R.815, legislative vehicle for supplemental appropriations,” the Senate...

    Patti Davis, daughter of former President Ronald Reagan, said he doesn’t think her father would be embraced by today’s Republican Party ― and that the feeling would be mutual. “I don’t think he would... and I don’t see how he would want to be in it,” she told CNN’s Jim Acosta on Sunday. “It’s so diametrically opposed to what he believed and to the dignity that he felt that people in government should have.” She mentioned Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) trying to get into a physical fight with labor union leader Sean O’Brien in the middle of a Senate committee...

    Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) hit the GOP over the tanked bipartisan Senate border bill on Sunday, claiming House Republicans decided to kill the bill in order to help former President Trump win the 2024 election. The sweeping border security and asylum overhaul bill initially had strong bipartisan support in the Senate last week, but it fell apart after Trump and the House GOP went against it. Murphy said in a CBS “Face the Nation” interview that Republicans didn’t want to hand Biden a win by passing it.

    House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) announced Thursday that she will not seek another term in Congress, marking an end to her tenure as one of Eastern Washington’s longest-serving representatives. McMorris Rodgers, who has been a familiar face on Capitol Hill since her first election in 2004, expressed a desire to serve her community in new capacities. “After much prayer and reflection, I’ve decided the time has come to serve the people of Eastern Washington in new ways. I will not be running for re-election to the People’s House,” Rodgers wrote on her X account. .....Snip........

    GOP Senators blocked a hidden migration bailout for the Democrats’ sanctuary cities and states when they voted against the border bill pushed by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY). The GOP revolt leaves Democrat mayors and city politicians scrambling for funds they need to support and hide President Joe Biden’s growing population of poor migrants during the 2024 election year. “It’s a huge problem for the Democrats because the Biden administration was counting on being able to shovel all this money onto the state and local allies,” said Jessica Vaughan, the policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies, adding:

    On Tuesday’s edition of NBC’s “MTP Now,” Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) predicted that Democrats will react to Republicans opposing the Senate border bill by having “multiple votes” to “keep the border in the news” and to “accentuate the fact that President Biden has put forward a very large package” that Republicans oppose. Merkley said, “Well, there are a couple of pathways: One is for us to have multiple votes and keep the border in the news, keep bringing it forward to accentuate the fact that President Biden has put forward a very large package, now accentuated by this deal, now...

    Tuesday, former South Carolina Governor and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley is set to sweep the Presidential Preference Primary (PPP) in Nevada, clinching an outright win. Former President Donald Trump's name is not printed on the ballot for the state-run primary at all. While Haley will likely ride the momentum of a purported victory, she won't exactly strike gold in the Silver State. At the Republican National Convention, Haley will not be awarded any of the 26 delegates from Nevada. Instead, the delegates will be awarded through caucuses run by the Nevada Republican Party on Thursday. By this method, Trump...

    House GOP leadership vowed on Sunday to kill the Senate’s bipartisan defense supplemental spending package after the long-awaited deal was unveiled. Senate appropriators released the legislative text of the bill on Sunday evening, following four months of negotiations between a bipartisan trio of members and the White House on a border security deal that would unlock assistance for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan. Detractors on both sides of the aisle were quick to attack negotiators and the bill’s contents, while the top two House Republicans said the deal would die in their chamber.

    Why is a Republican-led legislature fast tracking this left-leaning nightmare of a bill package brought by a Republican secretary of state?With the help of Republican lawmakers, South Dakota Secretary of State Monae Johnson has brought a handful of election-related bills to the 2024 legislative session, all to the ire of her campaign supporters. At her request, lawmakers have presented bills to share the statewide voter registration file, establish the crime of threatening a poll worker, and recently SB 17, which modifies the state’s recently-enacted law requiring new South Dakota voters to have resided in the state for at least 30...

    SALEM, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon Supreme Court said Thursday that 10 Republican state senators who staged a record-long walkout last year to stall bills on abortion, transgender health care and gun rights cannot run for reelection. The decision upholds the secretary of state’s decision to disqualify the senators from the ballot under a voter-approved measure aimed at stopping such boycotts. Measure 113, passed by voters in 2022, amended the state constitution to bar lawmakers from reelection if they have more than 10 unexcused absences. Last year’s boycott lasted six weeks — the longest in state history — and paralyzed...

    Representative Cori Bush (D-MO) said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX) criticisms of her were “racist and sexist tropes.” Anchor Joy Reid said, “I want to start with the fact that the Independent Congressional Ethics Office cleared this matter. How did it then proceed to an investigation by the DOJ?” Bush said, “So, what happened was, there is someone who made a complaint. They sent the complaint, I believe, to the FEC which that moves really slowly, is what I hear. And so, because, you know, nothing had happened, they didn’t see any movement, they decided,...
