  • 'Shame has befallen our nation’s capital': Congressman 'will not comply' with DC vaccine mandate

    Rep. Thomas Massie, a Kentucky Republican, announced on Thursday that his office would not adhere to the Washington, D.C., vaccination mandate that goes into effect on Saturday. "The DC vaccine mandate kicks in this weekend. My office will not comply," Massie tweeted. "We will not show papers. We will not order takeout from restaurants that require papers for dine in. We will get our food from Virginia or we will bring it to work," he added.

    Wednesday on FNC’s “Hannity,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) raised the possibility of not supporting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) given a perception McConnell and former President Donald Trump don’t have a good relationship. Graham encouraged McConnell to have that relationship and make the case for Trump-era policies. Otherwise, the South Carolina Republican said McConnell would “fail.”

    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham sent GOP Leader Mitch McConnell a very clear message Wednesday night: Get on board with Donald Trump or get out. Asked by Fox's Sean Hannity about the "swampiness" of the Kentucky senator, Graham answered this way: "Elections are about the future. If you want to be a Republican leader in the House or the Senate, you have to have a working relationship with Donald Trump. Can Senator McConnell effectively work with the leader of the Republican party, Donald Trump? He is the most consequential Republican since Ronald Reagan. It's his nomination if he wants it....
  • 'What a moron. Jesus Christ': Fauci is caught on hot mic attacking Senator Marshall for suggesting he's hiding his finances after Rand Paul accused him of using government resource and $434,312 salary to destroy scientists who disagree with him

  • Rand Paul Slams Big Tech’s Crackdown on COVID ‘Misinformation’ — And Offers His Solution

    Big Tech censorship has ratcheted up over the last week: big time. In the name of combating COVID-19 “misinformation,” Twitter banned the accounts of Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and Dr. Robert Malone. Meanwhile, Facebook banned the advertising account for a children’s book series promoting ‘Heroes of Liberty’ like free-market economist Thomas Sowell. (Facebook has reversed the decision under massive backlash. You can buy the books for your kids here). I spoke with Senator Rand Paul, a libertarian-leaning Kentucky Republican, about why this alarming uptick in Big Tech censorship is so concerning—and why the free market, not Big Government, is the...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | Jan 3 | Sen. Rand Paul
    Every year, people resolve to do things that are better for their health — quitting alcohol, processed food, toxic relationships. I have come to the realization that my relationship with YouTube is dysfunctional. Sure, I can get millions of views. But why should I allow anonymous “fact-checkers” to censor my fully sourced, fact-based content? They don’t want to challenge or debate me with opposing views, they just want my silence. Everyone complains about Big Tech. The Left says Big Tech doesn’t censor enough. The right complains that Big Tech censors too much already. Many in Congress, on the Left and...
  • Rand Paul says Fauci is responsible for THOUSANDS of COVID deaths across the US because he 'deemphasized therapeutics' while focusing entirely on vaccines

    Daily Mail ^ | Dec 30 | By MORGAN PHILLIPS
    Sen. Rand Paul blamed Dr. Anthony Fauci for thousands of Covid deaths because he said the White House chief medical advisor pushed vaccines while ignoring therapeutics. The Kentucky Republican accused Fauci of having a 'bias' toward vaccines that dates back to the AIDS crisis. 'I would venture to say that thousands of people die in our country every month now because [Fauci's] deemphasized the idea that there are therapeutics,' Paul told his father, three-time presidential candidate and former Texas Rep. Ron Paul, on 'Liberty Report' Monday. The senator also claimed that thousands had died because Fauci did not take into...

    NY Post ^ | 12/20/2021 | Patrick Reilly
    Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell said the GOP would “certainly welcome” West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin “if he was so inclined” to flip parties. Manchin has been bashed by his partisan colleagues for pledging to vote against President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better plan. Speaking on Fox News’ “The Guy Benson Show” podcast, the Kentucky senator called Manchin’s no vote “the single greatest favor Joe Manchin could give this country,” amid rising inflation costs. McConnell said he wasn’t sure how Manchin would vote but is pleased that his decision effectively ends any chance that the bill will get the...

    Fifteen state financial officers sent a letter to U.S. banks last week noting $600 billion in assets they pledge to take elsewhere if the financial institutions embrace corporate wokeism and prohibit financing to the fossil fuel industry. Led by West Virginia Republican Treasurer Riley Moore, the group promised “collective action” in the form of an “economic boycott.” “Just as each state represented in this letter is unique in its governing laws and economy, our actions will take different forms,” they wrote in the letter obtained by The Federalist. “However, the overarching objective of our actions will be the same –...
  • Yes, then no: Murkowski explains her debt ceiling votes

    12/20/2021 1:10:28 PM PST · by cotton1706 · 18 replies ^ | 12/20/21 | Liz Ruskin
    As a moderate, U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski sometimes votes with the Republican fold, sometimes against. And sometimes she does both on the same issue, as she did this month on raising the debt limit. Last week, Murkowski broke with most of her party when she voted to make it easier for the Senate to pass an increase in the national debt limit. “Because it was the right thing to do,” Murkowski told reporters. Without an increase, the government would run out of money to pay military and civilian salaries, debt payments and other spending Congress has already agreed to. Murkowski...

    Former President Donald Trump said on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was a “disaster,” thus the Republican Party needs new leadership. Trump said, “Look, Mitch McConnell, a disaster. The Republicans have to get a new leader. Mitch McConnell allowed this to happen. The un-frastructure bill, I call it un-frastructure, not infrastructure. It’s only 9% infrastructure. That means you take 90%, 91% of the money that we’re raising is going to be thrown out the window in order to get 9% infrastructure. There was no way that that should have been passed. It...

    Two babies survived a tornado in Kentucky last weekend that ripped the bathtub they were sheltering in out of the ground and tossed it with them inside, their grandmother said. Clara Lutz told WFIE-TV that she put 15-month-old Kaden and 3-month-old Dallas in the bathtub last Friday with a blanket, a pillow and a Bible. Then the house in Hopkins County started shaking. “Next thing I knew, the tub had lifted and it was out of my hands,” Lutz said. "I couldn’t hold on. I just – oh my God.” Lutz, who had been hit in the back of the...

    Newsweek ^ | Dec 18 | BY JASON LEMON
    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, poses a "direct challenge" to former President Donald Trump and has "betrayed" the GOP, former White House strategist Steve Bannon believes. Bannon, who served as the CEO of Trump's 2016 campaign and then as a chief strategist in the former president's administration, slammed McConnell during the Friday episode of his War Room podcast. His remarks came after McConnell gave an interview to Spectrum News this week in which he spoke favorably of the work being done by the House select committee investigating the pro-Trump January 6 attack against the U.S. Capitol, calling...

    The Political Insider ^ | DECEMBER 15, 2021 AT 1:22PM | RUSTY WEISS
    Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene fired off a late-night tweet blasting Mitch McConnell as “Biden’s bitch” over a deal the Senate Minority Leader struck giving Democrats the votes necessary to raise the debt ceiling. Lawmakers in the Senate voted 50-49 to raise the debt limit by $2.5 trillion. This happened only after 14 Republicans joined Democrats in offering a one-time exception to suspend the filibuster, allowing Democrats exclusively to vote in favor of raising the debt ceiling. It was a deal crafted by McConnell (R-KY) and Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY). The House voted approval after midnight, something that clearly angered Greene...

    Alaska Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka made a provocative announcement. "Mitch McConnell has repeatedly bailed out Joe Biden, giving him gifts of Senate votes, which are the only things keeping the Biden administration on life support," Tshibaka said about the Senate's highest-ranking Republican, adding: "When I defeat [Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa] Murkowski and become Alaska's next U.S. Senator, I will not support Mitch McConnell as leader. It's time for new, America First leadership in the Senate." Which is, in and of itself, is not terribly surprising. After all, McConnell is supporting Murkowski in her reelection bid, which gives Tshibaka plenty of...

    Unable to pass their welfare-state expansion with a simple majority, Democrats have reportedly shelved Build Back Better for the year. Now prepare for the entire left-wing infrastructure -- politicians as well as the establishment press -- to pivot hard from the fake "social safety net" bill to the fake "voting rights" bill, which will quickly become the most vital piece of legislation in the history of the republic. Just earlier today, Senate Budget Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders, who not long ago heralded the mere framework of Build Back Better as "by far the most significant piece of legislation ever passed...
