    House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that former President Donald Trump and those who “showed up” at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 were “domestic enemies.” Clyburn said, “We just got around the filibuster to raise the debt limit. Why? Because we don’t want to put the full faith and credit of the United States at risk.”

    Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., defended federal involvement in elections, citing Alexander Hamilton while claiming election loss "cannot be left up to the states." This week marked one year since the Jan. 6 Capitol riot that occurred on the day that Congress set to certify President Biden’s win in the 2020 election over former President Donald Trump. The controversy around the post-election days focused on Trump’s efforts to challenge election losses in key states, including Georgia where State Secretary Brad Raffensperger famously rebuffed the then-president’s effort to find more votes.

    “I am asymptomatic,” Clyburn shared on Twitter, urging Americans to get vaccinated and boosted. “No one is immune.” Fully vaccinated House Majority Whip James Clyburn announced on Twitter Wednesday that he tested positive for COVID-19. “This is a breakthrough case, and I am asymptomatic,” the South Carolina congressman shared in a statement. “America is in a new phase of this pandemic. No one is immune,” Clyburn wrote. “I urge anyone who has not done so to protect themselves by getting vaccinated and boosted.” Clyburn is not the only lawmaker to test positive for COVID-19 in recent days.

  • Capturing the False Flag-What really happened at the Capitol on Jan. 6?

    Since Jan. 6, when hundreds of protesters breached Capitol security as Congress certified Joe Biden's ostensible Presidential victory, the prevailing narrative blamed President Donald Trump and his supporters for the subsequent mayhem. But as facts come to light, a different picture emerges. Evidence suggests that Antifa staged the breach to discredit Trump and his supporters. Trump's opponents then would manipulate the disorder to justify another impeachment attempt and repress his supporters further. In the ensuing bedlam, however, federal agents who penetrated Antifa took valuable information -- including a laptop belonging to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House....

    Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, the number three Democrat in the House of Representatives, thanked CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer for 'accommodating' the party on questions asked of their presidential candidates at last week's debate in Myrtle Beach.Blitzer did not dispute Clyburn's statement of collusion between CNN and the Democrats.From the CNN transcript:BLITZER: We spoke the last time just before the Democratic debate in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. You urged the candidates, in your word, to chill, especially the former president of the United States, Bill Clinton. You got a lot of mileage out of that. But they came out...

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) stated that while the White House and Democrats believe the Build Back Better reconciliation bill will be fully paid for, the Congressional Budget Office might think differently. Clyburn said that if they do, “they’re the experts, we’ll be guided by what they say,” “Even the president’s not an expert in CBO scoring standards,” and that CBO analysis takes into account things that Congressional or White House analysis might miss. Clyburn stated the White House and Democrats promised that the bill will be paid for. He continued, “Now,...

    Congressional Democrats are reintroducing legislation that would repay the families of Black American veterans who served in World War II and were unable to take advantage of the original GI Bill. The GI Bill Restoration Act would provide descendants of these veterans a transferable benefit that could be used to obtain housing, attend college or start a business, according to the announcement Thursday from the bill’s sponsors. To mark Veterans Day, the bill was unveiled Thursday by House Majority Whip James Clyburn of South Carolina and Rep. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts in the House and is expected to be introduced...

    Far-left Democrats were dealt a big blow as former Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner, co-chair of Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign, was defeated by Cuyahoga County Councilwoman Shontel Brown in a much-anticipated special US House primary election. With 96.5 percent of precincts reporting, Brown led Turner by 4,380 votes out of more than 71,000 votes cast. Turner conceded the race soon after 10 p.m. local time, telling supports: “On this night, we will not cross the river.” The contest in Ohio’s 11th District, a deep-blue constituency that includes most of Cleveland, parts of Akron and several majority-black precincts in between...

    House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) on Wednesday said it would be “unAmerican” not to prioritize Medicaid expansion in the Democrats's social spending package amid an intra-party clash over health care priorities. Clyburn is a leading advocate of including in President Biden’s Build Back Better plan a provision for the federal government to step in and provide Medicaid coverage in the 12 GOP-led states that have so far declined the coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

    The 10-member panel on the House Ethics Committee voted Thursday to drop the $5,000 fine issued to Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.), who challenged the report by the Capitol that said she failed to complete a security screening before entering the House building. This is the third time a majority of the evenly split bipartisan panel voted in favor of waiving the metal detector fee since the Jan. 6 protest at the Capitol. In May the Capitol Police issued a report that documented an incident where Foxx set off a metal detector in front of a door to the House chamber....

    Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) said Friday on ABC’s “The View” that Democrats were “trying” to punish former President Donald Trump for alleged crimes with a commission to investigate the Capitol riot. Co-host Joy Behar said, “Congressman, we’re just beginning to find out how Trump may have tried to undermine our democracy as president. There are allegations that his Justice Department subpoenaed phone records of House Democrats investigating his potential ties with Russia. Then emails were released showing how he pressured the Justice Department to challenge the 2020 election results based on his voter fraud lies which one DOJ official...

    House Republican leadership removed Rep. Liz Cheney, (R-Wyo.), from her leadership position, a position her indignant liberal defenders likely did not even know existed until days ago. Cheney became Republican roadkill when she not only voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump but also became a vocal critic of his alleged "big lie" about the 2020 election. Cue the fake outrage by Democrats and the media. A CNN headline read in part: "Ousted Cheney Warns Direction of the Party is 'Dangerous.'" MSNBC wrote, "The GOP infighting reached a turning point after Republicans ousted Congresswoman Liz Cheney from her leadership position." PBS...

    Conservative Black politicians such as Sen. Tim Scott have sparked backlash Some liberal pundits have labeled Black Republicans as racists solely based on the political party they represent. The most recent example came Thursday when late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel mocked Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., saying the senator, who recently made headlines for his response to President Biden's address before Congress, "let the American people know the Republican Party isn't racist." Scott said in his Wednesday night rebuttal to the president that America is "not a racist country," sparking backlash from some Democrats on social media. However, prominent Democrats including Biden...

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. and Georgia Democratic Party Chairwoman Nikema Williams (D-GA) stated that the 2018 Georgia governor’s race was “stolen” from Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams. Williams discussed the arrest of Georgia State Rep. Park Cannon (D) on Thursday and Williams’ own arrest at the state Capitol earlier. She said, “I mean, it was the aftermath of the election being stolen from Stacey Abrams, that I was escorted out of the Capitol as a sitting state senator while my constituents were there protesting in the rotunda, their civic right to do.”

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) said that no one thinks Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) “did not steal the election fair and square from Stacey Abrams.” Clyburn said, “Nobody believes that he did not steal the election fair and square from Stacey Abrams. And what he’s doing now is codifying that which he used his administrative authority to do when he was secretary of state, when he took so many people off the roll. And I guarantee you that was the difference in his having won that election and having stolen it...

According to Clyburn, the new voting rights act, named after the civil rights icon and Georgia congressman who passed away in 2020, is supposed to “restore the efficacy of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.”

    Today, U.S. Representative Peter DeFazio (OR-04) introduced the Wall Street Tax Act, legislation to create a new tax on financial transactions that would generate billions in revenue, while reducing speculative trading and volatility in the market. “High-frequency traders front-run the market and drive up prices for individuals, pension funds and other value investors,” said Rep. Peter DeFazio. “Some days high-frequency traders trade billions of shares that they sometimes hold for only seconds or less. They reap enormous financial benefits for themselves and their privileged elite investors but add no value to our economy. Congress needs to rein in excessive speculative...

    House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn on Sunday likened President Donald Trump to Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, warning that Trump would resist leaving office. The South Carolina lawmaker and No. 3 House Democrat said on CNN's "State of the Union" that Trump has taken up "strong-arm tactics." Trump ignited an uproar last week after he floated the idea of delaying the November election, which he lacks the authority to do. "I don't think he plans to leave the White House," Clyburn said of Trump. "He doesn't plan to have fair and unfettered elections. I believe that he plans to install...
