McCarthy told “Sunday Morning Futures” that members of the party were “going after their political foes.” He also argued the committee was acting “beyond its legislative scope.

    FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that he was not “buying” former Gov. Sarah Palin’s political comeback bid for her state’s sole seat on the U.S. House of Representatives. Anchor Jon Karl said, “Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is attempting a political comeback nearly 14 years after Sen. John McCain made her the Republican Party’s first female candidate for vice president. She’s running for Alaska’s lone House seat following the death of longtime Congressman Don Young. Donald Trump has already endorsed her but does she have a shot at winning? Here’s FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver.

    The Santa Barbara City Council has given restaurant Chick-fil-A 90 days to fix its traffic problems on State Street or face the possibility of being declared a public nuisance. Why? A local woman who “never liked Chick-fil-A,” not because of their product, but “for their social positions,” found a reason to cancel them.Independent.com reported: What spurred Hobbs to local action, however, was watching the upper State Street restaurant’s overcrowded drive-thru line spill constantly and precariously into the road, a public safety issue that has persisted for the better part of the decade, unabated, with no apparent consequences for either the...
  • H.R. McMaster: January 6 ‘Was Illegitimate Political Discourse’ — It Was an ‘Assault on the First Branch of Government’

    Former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, was “illegitimate political discourse because it was an assault on the first branch of government.” The Republican National Committee on Friday voted to censure Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) with a resolution calling into question their participation on the January 6 Select Committee.

    The Epoch Times ^ | January 21, 2022 | Ken Silva
    Advocates for inmates arrested in connection with the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol have lamented the lack of national attention on the inhumane conditions facing those still in detention. That changed Jan. 21, when conservative writer Julie Kelly testified about the matter at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP). The Jan. 21 hearing followed months of unsuccessful attempts by some Republican lawmakers to find answers on how Jan. 6 inmates are being treated. GOP representatives were interrupted by left-wing protestors while trying to hold a press conference on the matter last July...
  • Why did scientists suppress the lab-leak theory

    Now we know what those leading scientists really thought. Emails exchanged between them after a conference call on 1 February 2020, and only now forced into the public domain by Republicans in the US Congress, show that they not only thought the virus might have leaked from a lab, but they also went much further in private. They thought the genome sequence of the new virus showed a strong likelihood of having been deliberately manipulated or accidentally mutated in the lab. Yet later they drafted an article for a scientific journal arguing that the suggestion not just of a manipulated...

    It seems like this Christmas is all Krampus and no St. Nick. People are in a foul mood, and politically it seems every day brings little offerings from the Caga Tió — from failed legislative measures to calls for packing institutions or sacking individuals in righteous indignation. Indeed, if you expect your holiday events are going to be an emotional powder keg, just think of dinner for Justice Sonia Sotomayor with the three newest justices after she said a “stench” of politics followed them to the Court. Then there is the happy gathering of the Democrats with senators like Joe...

    EXCLUSIVE: Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Democrats made COVID-19 vaccines "political," slamming mandates as "the wrong way to go" and encouraging public officials on educating the public, rather than "indoctrinating" them. In an interview with Fox News about his new book, "Republican Rescue: Saving the Party from Truth Deniers, Conspiracy Theorists, and the Dangerous Policies of Joe Biden," Christie discussed the issue of vaccines and how inoculations became political.

    Ex-Democrat Illinois governor turned “Trumpocrat” Rod Blagojevich said he believes current Gov. J.B. Pritzker tried to keep him in jail because the Democrat establishment is “afraid of what he knows” and “what [he] will say soon.” In a video obtained exclusively by Breitbart News, Blagojevich, who was Illinois governor from 2003 to 2009, can be heard talking about his relationship with the current governor, some of the events leading up to his time in federal prison, and his standing with the party he left behind.

    The move will not include about 120 detainees, including about 40 defendants who face federal charges in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, who are being held in the Corrections Department’s Central Treatment Facility (CTF), the Marshals Service said. That facility is located with the jail in Southeast Washington.

    On Jan. 6, 2021, Nathaniel DeGrave walked in through the open doors of the U.S. Capitol to document the event for a podcast. DeGrave was arrested for entering the Capitol. He is being held in pretrial detention with no bail at a Washington, D.C. jail. No trial date has been set. The Gateway Pundit, which has reported extensively on the treatment of Jan. 6 detainees, noted: "After careful review of DeGrave’s Indictment, Statement of Facts and other court documents, defense attorneys familiar with the case say that the Department of Justice has not yet shown credible proof to substantiate any...

    The abject stupidity of the triggered left knows no bounds. According to Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), the National Archives in Washington, DC has added a disclaimer to their website saying that some of our historical documents, including the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution may contain “harmful content.” Boebert tweeted: “The National Archives have now put a disclaimer on their website that our historical documents may include Harmful Content. They even slapped this warning on the Constitution. We tried to tell you the Left wanted to get rid of it!” Lest you think we are making this up,...

    A previously symptomless 86-year-old man received the first dose of the BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. He died 4 weeks later from acute renal and respiratory failure. Although he did not present with any COVID-19-specific symptoms, he tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 before he died. Spike protein (S1) antigen-binding showed significant levels for immunoglobulin (Ig) G, while nucleocapsid IgG/IgM was not elicited. Acute bronchopneumonia and tubular failure were assigned as the cause of death at autopsy; however, we did not observe any characteristic morphological features of COVID-19. Postmortem molecular mapping by real-time polymerase chain reaction revealed relevant SARS-CoV-2 cycle threshold values in...

    For years, we have been discussing the decline of journalism values with the rise of open bias in the media. Now, a newly released report from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford has found something that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. The United States ranked dead last in media trust among 49 countries with just 29% saying that they trusted the media. The most tragic aspect is that it does not matter. The media has embraced the advocacy journalism and anyone questioning that trend risks instant cancellation. The result is a type...

    If you listen to Democrats and anti-Trump liberal Republicans like Sen. Mitt Romney and Rep. Liz Cheney, you'd think that nothing was being done about the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Never mind the FBI's all-out hunts and raids across 44 states. Never mind the continued detention of an unknown number of pro-Trump supporters. Never mind the more than 2,000 criminal charges brought by federal prosecutors against nearly 500 Americans arrested over the past four months. Nope. Absolutely nothing is being done, the gaslighters insist, so these partisan opportunists are pushing forward with their witch-hunt commission to...

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki seemed to admit late last week that, contrary to what actually happened, as far as President Joe Biden is concerned a “number” of U.S. Capitol Police officers died on the day of the Jan. 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol.She offered the unusual admission after being asked by CNN’s Kaitlan Collins to remark on an emotional letter recently written to all members of the U.S. government by a Capitol police officer who’d been injured during the riot.“I’m happy to check on the status of the letter. Obviously, the president’s view is that there are...

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) hinted Thursday that he has a lot more expected for his political future. DeSantis addressed some 750 Republican activists and officials at the Republican Committee of Allegheny County's annual Lincoln Day Dinner. DeSantis was the event's main attraction, boasting of his success and concluding his speech with a suggestion about his future ambitions. “I will assure you this: As governor of Florida, I have just started to fight,” DeSantis said to applause, according to CNN.
