    I Warned You About What We’re Living Through TodayJan 7, 2021 RUSH: Hey, folks, it’s great to be back. Really great to be back, and I need to ask you a favor. I need to you to give me a few minutes here just to get my sea legs. This has been a very, very bad couple of weeks for me. I don’t want to get into any more detail about it. Those of you have been through this know exactly what I’m talking about. But it has not been a break in the sense that it hasn’t been restful...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate passed a stopgap spending bill Thursday that avoids a short-term shutdown and funds the federal government through Feb. 18 after leaders defused a partisan standoff over federal vaccine mandates. The measure now goes to President Joe Biden to be signed into law. “I am glad that in the end, cooler heads prevailed. The government will stay open and I thank the members of this chamber for walking us back from the brink of an avoidable, needless and costly shutdown,” said Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The Senate approved the measure by a vote of...
  • House Republicans Who Backed Infrastructure Bill Face Vicious Backlash

    WASHINGTON — One caller instructed Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois to slit his wrists and “rot in hell.” Another told Rep. Don Bacon of Nebraska that they hoped he slipped and fell down a staircase. The office of Rep. Nicole Malliotakis of New York has been inundated with angry messages tagging her as a “traitor.” Investing in the nation’s roads and bridges was once considered one of the last realms of bipartisanship in Congress, and President Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill drew ample support over the summer from Republicans in the Senate. But in the days since 13 House Republicans broke...

  • GOP to force vaccine mandate vote and put squeeze on centrist Democrats

    With the Biden administration facing a growing wave of lawsuits to stop the president’s vaccine mandate on companies, an Indiana businessman-turned-senator believes he has the quickest way to kill it. Sen. Mike Braun, backed by most GOP senators, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, is hopeful of nixing the mandate through the arcane but effective Congressional Review Act. It would force a vote in both Houses just before Christmas and when 93,000 firms could be firing unvaccinated workers. The act allows Congress to review federal rules, normally ignored by the House and Senate. In this case, he would target the Occupational...

    Washington Republicans are excited for the 2022 elections, and they have reason to be — they’re going to do well. They’re heavy favorites to take back the House of Representatives; and despite a very bad Senate map, it’s a coin flip they’ll retake that too. None of this is too shocking: First-term presidents usually face a backlash, and often it’s a bloodbath. President Barack Obama crushed Sen. John McCain, then lost 63 House seats two years later; President Donald Trump lost 42 seats in 2018; President Bill Clinton lost 54. In fact, the only first-term president to not lose House...

    President Joe Biden will not be impeached, the top Republican in the Senate said Wednesday. “The president is not going to be removed from office with a Democratic House and a narrowly Democratic Senate. That’s not going to happen,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said at an event in his home state when asked whether the president’s behavior should trigger an impeachment. “I think the way these behaviors get adjusted in this country is at the ballot box,” he added. “There isn’t going to be an impeachment.” Democrats control the House of Representatives with a 220–212 majority while holding...

  • Michael Steele creates exploratory committee for possible gubernatorial run

    BALTIMORE (WBFF) – Moving one step closer to confirming rumors running through the state of Maryland, former lieutenant governor and Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele formed an exploratory committee ahead of a possible run for governor. The GOP field for the 2022 governor’s race would get a little more crowded if Steele jumped in, with current Maryland Secretary of Commerce Kelly Schulz already in the ring, Del. Dan Cox campaigning and Robin Ficker in the race as well. Following Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford’s announcement not to run, Schulz emerged as the GOP favorite thus far. Steele has been a...

    Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), told Breitbart News Daily there is “no way” the RNC will allow establishment media figures to moderate the 2024 Republican primary debates — if she believes the journalist wants the candidates to fail. She warned that the RNC may encourage the eventual 2024 GOP nominee to refrain from working with the Commission on Presidential Debates if it does not make “significant changes.” Breitbart News Daily host Alex Marlow asked McDaniel about how the RNC plans to deal with the establishment media’s anti-conservative bias, particularly in the context of the 2024 presidential...

    Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, wants the Senate to permit people brought to the U.S. as children to stay in this country permanently. Cornyn joined Sen. Thom Tillis, R-North Carolina, in a letter this week asking Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, to consider a bill that would give permanent legal status to temporary residents allowed to stay in the U.S. under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy. -snip- Cornyn’s proposal of “permanent legal status” is vague and could refer to a number of things from green cards to full-blown citizenship. Cornyn’s office did not clarify what...

    Former President Donald Trump is rejecting pleas from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to postpone a campaign-style rally this weekend some 200 miles from the Miami suburb where an international search-and-rescue mission is excavating bodies from the site of a collapsed seaside condominium. DeSantis’s office has "made a direct plea” to the former president’s team, calling on it to postpone the Saturday event in Sarasota. One Florida Republican bluntly said Trump and his team need to “read the room.” “The governor is getting tested here as to how far he's going to be pushed before he breaks ranks with President Trump....

    Former Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) met with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Wednesday amid speculation that she could mount another bid against Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) next year. The meeting, first reported by CNN and confirmed to The Hill by a person familiar, comes after Loeffler in February said a 2022 bid against Warnock is “certainly on the table.” Loeffler was ousted from her Senate seat in January of this year after Warnock won a runoff race by a narrow two points. She served in the Senate for slightly more than a year, after replacing former Sen. Johnny...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday said he’s spoken “many times” with former President Donald Trump since they left office and that they don’t “see eye to eye” on the events of Jan. 6. But he said Republicans “must move forward united” and focus on opposing President Biden’s agenda. Pence called the Capitol riot a “dark day,” but said that it was being used as a smokescreen to facilitate Biden’s agenda. “As I said that day, Jan. 6 was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol. But thanks to the swift action of the Capitol...
  • GOP performs sloppy fake-voting burlesque (good piece)

    “No Republicans voted for the bill” was the description NBC News offered in their coverage of the narrowly passed $1.9 billion dollar Democratic “supplemental security bill” which is part of their using the Jan. 6 riot to signal that the American people can’t be trusted. That’s all you’re supposed to want to know, and yet the story, one way or another, is more interesting than that. You see, while no Republicans voted for the bill, two Republicans didn’t vote at all. The almost $2 billion dollar legislation passed by just one vote. How this miraculous win by the Democrats came...

    CNN contributor and former US senator Rick Santorum is under fire for “racist” comments that critics said debased Native American culture, prompting calls for his immediate termination. Santorum, 62, told the conservative Young America’s Foundation on Friday that “there isn’t much Native American culture in American culture,” claiming the United States has been largely unchanged since the country was born out of “Judeo-Christian” values.
