    The Senate passed a $2.5 trillion debt ceiling increase that will push the ceiling past the 2022 midterm elections by temporarily bypassing the Senate’s filibuster. It passed, 50-49, with solely Democrat votes. The measure moves to the House, where it is quickly expected to pass and get sent to President Biden. The federal government may face a default on its debt if Congress fails to raise the debt ceiling by December 15. The Senate passed the debt ceiling increase after members created a one-time carveout to the Senate’s rules, allowing Democrats to pass the bill with a simple majority. Sen....

    A majority of voters in Utah believe that former President Trump should not run again, according to a new poll released on Wednesday. A poll conducted by OH Predictive Insights indicated that 54 percent of registered voters in Utah believe that Trump should not run again in 2024 compared to 35 percent of those who believe he should. While the research firm indicated that the numbers differed along partisan lines, the percentage of Republican voters who said they would like Trump to run again was 53 percent, and OH Predictive Insights said was mostly driven by Republicans in the 18-year-old...

    Attorney General Merrick Garland declined to pull back a memo directing the FBI to help local police address reported harassment, intimidation and threats of violence against educators and school board members under questioning from Sen. Mike Lee on Wednesday. The Utah Republican pointed out that the National School Boards Association has apologized for a letter to President Joe Biden last month... “Will you rescind your letter?” Lee asked Garland during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.... ...Lee said he and his staff went through every news source mentioned in the school board association’s letter. “There was no explicit death threat and...

    WASHINGTON—Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), Ranking Member of the Joint Economic Committee, made the following statement on this morning’s jobs report issued by the U.S. Department of Labor: “This month’s addition of 194,000 jobs underscores the continued uncertainty holding back our economic recovery. America’s families are feeling the power of their paycheck shrink day by day. Workers are struggling to find jobs that fit their skills, and businesses are struggling to find willing workers.” “Unfortunately, tax increases and runaway spending will not result in more jobs or better pay for Americans. These policies will likely have the opposite effect, fueling continued...

    Former President Donald Trump denied he spoke to U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham about his 2020 election fraud claims, despite reporting to the contrary in a new book by famed Watergate journalist Bob Woodward and reporter Robert Costa. Trump said in a Wednesday statement that he “spent virtually no time” talking to Graham — a Trump ally — about his unfounded claims of widespread fraud plaguing the 2020 presidential election. Trump also denied speaking about the issue with Republican Sen. Mike Lee, of Utah, another point detailed in the book, titled “Peril.” “Lindsey and Mike should be ashamed of themselves for...

    The sweeping change would grant permanent status and legal residency to an estimated 8 million people at a cost estimated at $140 billion.The Senate’s parliamentarian appeared to dash Democrats’ mass amnesty dreams Sunday, issuing an opinion that the rules for a budget reconciliation bill — a privileged legislative vehicle that can be passed with a simple majority — don’t encompass providing permanent legal status to millions of illegal migrants.Democratic leadership claimed they “are deeply disappointed,” but they know decision doesn’t matter, at least not as much as they’d like to pretend.Why not?

  • Lindsey Graham Vetted Trump ‘Evidence’ of Election Fraud—and Called It ‘Third Grade,’ Book Says

    Daily Beast / WaPo ^ | Sep 20 | Danika Fears
    Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Mike Lee (R-UT) personally evaluated President Trump’s wild claims of vote fraud in the 2020 election—and found them to be far from convincing, according to Bob Woodward and Robert Costa’s new book, Peril. After Trump’s former personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, presented Graham with their fraud case, the loyalist senator reportedly called the arguments appropriate for “third grade.” Graham’s lawyer couldn’t corroborate any of Trump’s claims, ultimately finding that they “added up to nothing,” according to the book. “Holmes found the sloppiness, the overbearing tone of certainty, and the inconsistencies disqualifying,” the book says.
  • Big Tech Only Has Itself to Blame for Republican Rethinking of Antitrust

    06/18/2021 4:18:59 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 9 replies ^ | June 18, 2021 | Josh Hammer
    There are few, if any, political issues that now generate the breadth and intensity of bipartisan backlash as does the rise of Big Tech. During Donald Trump's presidency, the major parties largely diverged on their specific grievances against the woke Silicon Valley monopolists who serve as gatekeepers for America's 21st-century public square. Republicans, by and large, focused on censorship of conservative online speech. Democrats, by contrast, tended to focus on economic concentration; the five American corporations with the largest market caps, for example, are tech behemoths Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Google Alphabet and Facebook. This divergence has stymied efforts to rein...

    Not a surprise. Kirsten Clarke, Biden’s nominee to head civil rights at the DOJ, has a history of black nationalism, and sympathy for racism and antisemitism. Kristen Clarke, Joe Biden’s nominee for assistant attorney general of the United States, once promoted racist pseudoscientific quackery, arguing that the human brain was structured in a way that makes Black people superior to white people, and that “human mental processes” in the brain have chemicals that imbue one race with “superior physical and mental abilities” and “spiritual abilities.” And then there’s the antisemitism. Wellesley Professor Tony Martin spoke at Harvard at the invitation...

These same senators refused to stand with President Trump after the election was stolen. And now they are going rally for Loeffler and Perdue? And they say NOTHING about the fraud in the state? Look for these same people to blame Trump or Lin Wood if these elections are also stolen in January. FOX News reported: If President Trump fails in his effort to expose...

    “Everything about this bill is rotten to the core. This is a bill as if written in hell by the devil himself.” So says Republican Senator Mike Lee about the Democrats’ H.R.1 election reform legislation that promises to make permanent the 2020 election’s unprecedented use of mass mail-in balloting — implemented with few voter authentication checks and done in the name of a health emergency — that miraculously placed President Popsicle (because he’s cold on the inside and 90% artificial) into the White House.Watching Lee fret about the Democrats’ planned takeover of elections is a bit like watching a child...

    Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) did not hold back Wednesday in ripping H.R. 1, the so-called “For the People Act.” The House bill would radically change the United States’ voting system. Lee called the bill “rotten to the core.” He said it is as if the bill was “written in hell by the devil himself.” “I disagree with every single word in H.R. 1, including the words ‘but,’ ‘and,’ and ‘the.’ Everything about this bill is rotten to the core. This is a bill as if written in hell by the devil himself,” Lee declared. “This takes all sorts of decisions...

    Chaos erupted at the end of the second day of the second impeachment trial of now former President Donald Trump as House Democrats were forced to withdraw from the record a statement a GOP senator said was falsely attributed to him after Senate Democrats lost control of the proceedings while they sought to wrap up for the day. Specifically, the incident that distracted from the Democrats’ case against Trump began when Democrat impeachment manager Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) recalled public reporting that then-President Trump allegedly called Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) by accident when he supposedly meant to call Sen. Tommy...

    The Utah senator wasn't talking about Trump or impeachment, but trying to be polite toward his Democratic colleagues.Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, was given an opportunity to bash Democrat politicians for some of their recent violent political rhetoric. During a TV interview yesterday, clips of Democrats using violent or aggressive rhetoric against Republican-affiliated individuals were played from Sen. Chuck Schumer, Rep. Maxine Waters, and Sen. Cory Booker. “I want to tell you Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh: You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price,” said now-Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on the steps of the...

    Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) believes President Joe Biden isn’t taking his call for unity to heart. Following Inauguration Day, President Biden signed an unprecedented number of executive orders— including one to restore Bears Ears National Monument in San Juan County, Utah, to its original size. To Senator Lee and the entire Utah delegation, this goes against the “unity” Biden preached on Wednesday. “I find it significant that in his inaugural address President Biden pledged, as he put it—“his whole soul”—to the task of bringing America together, uniting our people and uniting our nation,” Lee said.“Sadly, though, just a few hours...

    Among the hopes: more approvals of H-1B visas, a popular vehicle for staffing IT teams Corporate technology recruiters say rolling back restrictions on immigrant work visas, a move backed by President-elect Joe Biden, will expand the pool of information technology job candidates and help ease a longstanding labor shortage. The restrictions, put in place during the Trump administration, included a clampdown on H-1B visas for foreign workers—a program especially coveted by technology firms, chief information officers and other IT employers. The H-1B visa program provides a limited number of three-year work permits to highly skilled immigrants, typically with graduate-level university...
