    John Cornyn is a snake in the grass.Forever war enthusiast Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.) declared Tuesday that the ouster of Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House was tantamount to a “terrorist attack,” suggesting that the eight House members who voted with Democrats to remove McCarthy were, themselves, terrorists.“We saw a similar thing happen to Boehner, Ryan, and now McCarthy. I’m sure the next speaker is going to be subjected to the same terrorist attacks,” Cornyn said. Later, Cornyn doubled down on his remarks, writing on X, “A handful [of] House members just want to blow up the institution and...

    Radical far-left Senators are threatening to leave the GOP if the party continues on its path of representing the people. The Democrats no longer represent America. They push the war in Ukraine against nuclear power Russia, the invasion across the Southern border (which supports drug cartels, Chinese manufactured fentanyl and US-backed child trafficking), massive spending (causing massive inflation), the destruction of the human body, mind and soul (through trans-rights and perverted child pornography), and the ultimate destruction of this great Christian country. Now four GOP US Senators are threatening to join them. According to Conservative Treehouse: According to interviews conducted...
  • Senate Intelligence bill gives holders of "non-earth origin or exotic UAP material" six months to make it available to AARO

    The U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) has unanimously approved legislation containing language that appears intended to dig out any UAP-associated technology that is or ever was controlled by the federal government. The new UAP/UFO provisions are being publicly reported in detail in this article for the first time anywhere. The new UAP provisions are part of the Fiscal Year 2024 Intelligence Authorization Act (IAA, S. 2103), which was approved unanimously by the Senate Intelligence committee in a closed-door session on June 14. On June 21 I reported on the committee's action, but the text of the UAP amendment...

    Says Cornyn: "I don’t think President Trump understands that when you run in a general election, you have to appeal to voters beyond your base." WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Cornyn said Thursday that Republicans need to find an alternative to former President Donald Trump for the 2024 presidential election, saying the party needs "a candidate who can actually win." ~snip~ Cornyn, a former chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee and Senate majority whip, did not endorse any other declared candidate or potential contender, though he praised Florida Gov.

    The continued — an increasingly curious — absence of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) from her duties in the upper chamber of Congress is becoming a growing thorn in the sides of the Democrats. Feinstein is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and her prolonged recovery from shingles has ground to a halt the Democrats’ ability to further pollute the judicial system with activist judges who have been nominated by Joe Biden’s puppeteers. Over the weekend, Matt wrote a VIP column about Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) asserting that the Republicans on the committee not let Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer...

    Former President George W. Bush is expected to attend an upcoming fundraising event for Joe O’Dea, the Republican Senate candidate in Colorado, in mid-October. Bush’s rare appearance on the campaign trail comes after O’Dea posted big numbers in the recent July-September quarter, reporting $3 million in fundraising. Of the funds, $1 million included a personal loan from O'Dea. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, is also expected to attend O’Dea’s upcoming Colorado fundraiser. In a recent appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” O’Dea said that he would not support former President Donald J. Trump if he chooses to run again in 2024.

    One day after the U.S. Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade, which gave constitutional abortion rights to women for more than 50 years, a Texas senator is now going viral online for comparing it to another landmark ruling that was overruled related to racial segregation. Sen. John Cornyn responded to a tweet by former president Barack Obama that denounced the Roe v. Wade decision. Cornyn's tweet said "Now do Plessy vs Ferguson/Brown vs Board of Education."

    Listen to this article 0:00 / 3:11 1X BeyondWords Sen. John Cornyn’s, R-Texas, office on Wednesday denied that a bipartisan immigration bill is in the works after comments he made on the Senate floor that his staff say were a joke, but that sparked uproar from conservatives. Cornyn, who frequently attempts to find bipartisan paths for legislation on a range of issues that includes immigration, was on the Senate floor Tuesday evening as the chamber advanced bipartisan gun legislation that he had helped shepherd. HuffPost reporter Igor Bobic tweeted that Cornyn was smiling as he told California Sen. Alex Padilla:...

    Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) Cornyn is a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee who negotiated with Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) last year on legislation to expand background checks for commercial sellers but without success. Cornyn scored one of the few notable accomplishments on gun violence legislation in recent years when he coauthored and helped pass the Fix NICS Act in 2018. The legislation required federal agencies to produce plans for uploading all relevant information to the National Instant Criminal Background Checks System. McConnell tapped Cornyn to lead the negotiations for Republicans shortly after a bipartisan group of senators met...

    The Senate on Tuesday broke through nearly 30 years of stalemate on gun control legislation by voting 64 to 34 to advance an 80-page gun safety bill The Senate voted to proceed to the bill just more than an hour after negotiators unveiled its text, giving lawmakers little time to digest its details. The Daily Wire lists exactly what the bill would do, including provisions to grant the federal government the ability to deny you weapons based on “red flags” it defines. (Hint: Believing in the Constitution is a “red flag”) Notably, the 80-page legislation includes language on highly controversial...

In a 64-34 vote, the Senate voted to begin debate on an ambitious rewrite of the nation’s firearm laws.

    Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) said on Monday that he is hopeful the Senate will pass some form of legislation to curb gun violence, adding that not doing so would be a “moment of moral failure.” Sens. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and John Cornyn (R-Texas) have led bipartisan negotiations among Senate lawmakers to come up with a framework that could get enough votes to pass the chamber after the shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

    Republican senator John Cornyn of Texas said he was 'done' as he walked out of Thursday's closed-door session of gun law negotiations after nearly two hours, saying he was flying home. 'This is the hardest part because at some point, you just got to make a decision. And when people don't want to make a decision, you can't accomplish the result. And that's kind of where we are right now,' Mr Cornyn said. 'I'm not frustrated, I'm done,' he added, though he said he was open to continued discussions.

    Texas Sen. John Cornyn is warning that time and policy constraints are putting pressure on negotiators who have yet to lock in on a final deal on legislation responding to recent gun massacres – and that Democrats have 'run out of rope.' He made the comments Thursday after earlier saying the most contentious remaining issues related to state 'red flag' laws and closing the so called 'boyfriend loophole' for gun restrictions on people that currently apply to abusive spouses. 'The challenge, of course, as you know, is to translate those principles into text,' Cornyn told conservative host Hugh Hewitt on...

The final bill hasn’t been written yet, sources familiar with the negotiations said. “Today, we are announcing a commonsense, bipartisan proposal to protect...
