    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 9 June 2024 | John Semmens
    House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) went on NBC's Meet the Press to say that "Trump's conviction validates the American judicial system. Here we have a person of immense wealth and privilege brought down by a jury of ordinary folks. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg ran for his office on a promise to put Trump behind bars. He was elected and has delivered on that promise. This is a potent warning to all the enemies of our democracy that they will pay a price for defying the power of the people voters put in office." Bragg urged Judge Juan Merchan...

    House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) defended President Biden for saying last year that his son Hunter Biden did “nothing wrong” in connection to the federal investigation related to tax and gun offenses. Jeffries backed up Biden on NBC’s “Meet the Press” for his comments regarding the investigation into his son last year when asked if it was “appropriate” for the president to weigh in on the case at the time. “President Biden commented as a loving father, as I would hope any loving father would do. Hunter Biden, of course, is entitled, as was Donald Trump, to the presumption...

    House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that former President Donald Trump’s guilty verdict in the New York business document trial was a “validation of the American judicial system.” Guest host Peter Alexander said, “I want to start by asking you about this historic verdict. President Biden opened his remarks on Friday by saying it is irresponsible for anyone to say the verdict was rigged just because they do not like it. This is eight years old, and there are questions about the validity of legal theory, untested legal theory to prosecute it. Would...

    House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) said on Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that if the Supreme Court can overturn Roe v. Wade, then “democracy can fall.” Jeffries said, “It’s important for the American people to understand that if Roe v. Wade can fall, anything can fall. Social Security itself can fall. Medicare can fall. The Affordable Care Act can fall. Democracy can fall. Brown v. Board of Education can fall, as Justice Thomas made clear in his concurring observation and opinion yesterday. So, everything we care about is going to be on the ballot in November. Including getting the federal...

    House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) said Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that the “MAGA extremists” on the Supreme Court must be controlled with a “legislative effort to implement an ethical code of conduct.” Jeffries said, “This is part of the challenge that we confront with the runaway Supreme Court that appears to want to conduct itself as if the Judiciary is above the law. For years, members of Congress in both the House and the Senate have indicated that it’s time for the Supreme Court to have an ethical code of conduct that is enforceable.”

    House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) took a victory lap on CBS’s 60 Minutes on Sunday to brag about wrestling away control of the House from Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA). Jeffries’ boast followed three startling Democrat victories in the Johnson-led House that delivered significant lifelines to President Joe Biden, desperate for legislative victories to tout as he continues struggling in the polls against former President Donald Trump. Johnson’s actions spurred Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) to commit to force a vote this week to eject Johnson from the Speakership.

    House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) is floating an ambitious deadline for the chamber to pass Ukraine aid, urging GOP leaders to send a Senate-passed foreign aid package to President Biden’s desk by the end of next week. “The clock is ticking, and we have to get the bipartisan national security bill over the finish line before we leave town next Friday, March 22 — before we leave town,” Jeffries said Wednesday during a press briefing in the Capitol. “It’s reckless to do otherwise.” Jeffries, as leader of the minority party, has virtually no power to control what legislation comes...

    Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) blamed former President Trump and conservative media host Tucker Carlson for the rise in anti-Ukrainian sentiment in the House, dubbing the pair the leaders of a “pro-Putin faction” of the Republican Party. Ukraine aid has languished in the House for months as Republicans refuse to pass foreign spending without major border security reforms. Jeffries called on Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) to bring a Senate bill to the floor once again on Sunday.

    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...

Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) stated that Democratic support for abortion without restrictions, “period, full stop” will be “at the top of” the list of issues on the ballot in November. Jeffries said, “Well, there will be a whole host of issues that I think are going to be on the ballot in November. Certainly, at the top of that list, reproductive freedom is going to be on the ballot. The economy, of course, as we talked about, on the ballot, Social Security and Medicare on the ballot.

Members of the “Squad,” including Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Cori Bush of Missouri, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Pramila Jayapal of Washington, continue to call for a ceasefire while repeating anti-Israel sentiments after Hamas, a Palestinian terrorist group, attacked the U.S. ally on Oct. 7.

    Given the opportunity, leftists wave their hands and shout “You’re a racist!” at anyone who disagrees with them — especially conservatives. What happens when one of the Democratic Party’s leaders in Congress is exposed as a racist? They keep right on voting for him like the hypocrites they are. Which brings us to House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries. In 1992, as a student at Binghamton University in upstate New York, Jeffries penned an opinion piece for the college newspaper headlined “The Black Conservative Phenomenon.” The editorial was rife with racism and included a defense of anti-Semites. ...

    House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) is attempting to undermine Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan’s (R-OH) bid for the Speakership gavel after voting for him on the first ballot, sources familiar with the matter have confirmed to Breitbart News. CNN’s Annie Grayer noted on X that the majority leader would not commit to helping Jordan secure the 17 outstanding votes he needs for the top House job. This is despite Jordan requesting his aid, as the House has not had a Speaker since now-former Speaker Kevin McCarthy was removed on October 3. Sources on Capitol Hill have confirmed Grayer’s reporting...

    Chad Pergram A) Jeffries: There have been ongoing informal conversations that have been undertaken over the last few days. I think there's a possibility those can accelerate now that Jim Jordan clearly does not have the votes to be Speaker. For good reason. B) Jeffries: are many good men and women on the Republican side of the aisle who are qualified to be the Speaker of the House of Representatives. There is no circumstance where Jim Jordan is one of them.

House Republicans delivered Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) the second GOP nomination for the leadership role on Friday — a day after first choice and Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) withdrew from the race.
