It’s not the war in Ukraine. It’s the war here against fossil fuel [companies]. Maybe he’ll nationalize Exxon. Maybe he’ll nationalize Chevron. I mean, I’ve never seen such a hostile executive.

    Kevin McCarthy is a dolt. The refusal of the Trump/GOP to participate in the committee meant that they were shut out of last night’s hearing. They had a chance to make their case, but chose instead to sulk. As last night’s evidence unfolded, that decision looked more and more like an act of supreme political malpractice.

    Trump Endorses Kevin McCarthy Despite Boos at Wyoming Rally What does Trump have up his sleeve? Most people usually don’t know, and it tends to turn out well for the MAGA king. He likes to keep people guessing. While back in March, House Republicans conducted a poll to determine the views of battleground voters and found that 75 percent believed Democrats were ‘out of touch’ and ‘condescending.’ Republicans are believed to be headed towards a midterm sweep of the House because of the dismal state of the country under Democrat leadership. The poll revealed a further 67 percent said Democrats...

So in all probability, he will be issued another invitation to come just like some other members,” Select Committee Chair Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.)...
