Freshman GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has a lot of time on her hands these days because petty Democrats took the highly unusual step of stripping her of all of her committee assignments because she said some politically incorrect things about some politically incorrect conspiracies.

CNN, MSNBC, WaPo, and the New York Times traffic in fake news and wild conspiracy theories about ‘Russian collusion’ but Democrats in Washington, D.C., still watch and read them anyway.

In any event, Greene is attempting to put her free time to good use by doing something those lefty media outlets don’t do a good job of, which is informing the American people about relevant, important issues of the day.

As such, she has challenged fellow Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, self-described New York democratic socialist, to debate the ‘merits’ and pitfalls of the AOC’s Green New Deal, which is entirely appropriate given that Democrats and the Biden regime are attempting to implement huge chunks of it while disguising the various planks as “infrastructure.”

“@AOC I’d like to challenge you to a debate on the Green New Deal economic policy. Since you sponsored the Green New Deal and have a degree in Economics, I’m sure you are more than qualified,” Taylor-Greene wrote on Twitter in a short thread on Wednesday.

“I just have a degree in Business Admin and have owned a construction company for 20 years. A debate between AOC and I on the Green New Deal economic policy would be informative for the American People. They deserve to hear the two sides with pro’s and cons,” she continued.

“@AOC you can choose one moderator and I choose a moderator. Then we can negotiate a major news network to host the debate. Let’s do this for The People. What do you say?” Taylor-Greene asked.

As of this writing, Taylor-Greene had not been taken up on her offer, but it’s early.

As for whether or not this would even be a productive debate, the answer is: Yes. Yes, it would be.

For one, it’s a debate that would draw a lot of attention even from a media that is laser-focused on Kamala Harris puff pieces about her wonderful crocheting abilities instead of why she isn’t doing what Biden tasked her with doing — handling the border crisis.

For another, it’s a debate that needs to be had. The plan put forth by AOC calls for multiple tens of trillions of dollars to be spent over a relatively short period of time. Many elements of the plan will dramatically impact the lives of all Americans, and in many negative ways (in terms of living our lives, expense, freedoms, etc.).

Finally, the debate would highlight the wide gulf between legitimate big government, authoritarian socialism/Marxism and legitimate smaller government, liberty-minded capitalism, and in real time. Taylor-Greene as a business owner can provide real-life, real-world examples of how economic policies do and do not work, while AOC can use the time to pontificate about perceived ‘social injustices’ of how a white privileged female lawmaker from Georgia got to own her own business in the first place.

No doubt it was “on the backs of persons of color.”

McCarthy Pledges Investigations of Dems ‘Fraud and Abuse’ If GOP Wins Back House in 2022

Published

on

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pledging that Republicans will launch “real investigations” of Democrats’ “fraud and abuse” if the GOP wins back the U.S. House of Representatives in the 2022 midterm elections.

During an interview with Breitbart News, McCarthy said Republicans will launch investigations into whether Pelosi’s husband engaged in insider trading as well as Hunter Biden over his art deals.

“You know what? We will look at any of the fraud and abuse that has gone on,” McCarthy vowed. “We will have real investigations.”

Recent financial reports revealed Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, exercised call options on 4,000 shares of Alphabet, Inc., Google’s parent company, a week before the House Judiciary Committee decided to advance antitrust legislation that would impact the company.

Paul Pelosi netted a gain of $4.8 million at the time.

McCarthy said that is worth an investigation if Republicans take back the House next November.

McCarthy also spoke about Hunter Biden selling his “artwork” for a reported half a million dollars, which many can clearly see as suspicious given the Biden administration has not disclosed who is buying the art.

“Which American would not be worried about [inflation]? Pelosi wouldn’t be worried about it because she and her husband just made $5 million, not buying stock, but trading options on tech stocks when Congress was actually taking legislation up, $5 million in one month. Can you imagine that?” McCarthy said.

“And then you’ve got the only other person who wouldn’t be nervous about inflation. If you had a son that was an artist that could sell paintings for $500,000 — which, he’s never been an artist before,” he added.

“Those are the only two families that I could think of that aren’t worried about inflation in America,” he added.

“Think about it. Pelosi starts and tells you you can’t get a haircut, but she gets one,” McCarthy said.

“You’ve got Gavin Newsom who sits there and tells you you’ve got to wear a mask as you’re eating dinner — even then he goes out with everybody, doesn’t have it on, and then anybody else can’t go out to eat, and he goes to one of the most expensive restaurants in California,” he added.

“You’ve got Paul Pelosi and Nancy Pelosi off the investment of options into high-tech stocks, yet at the same time Congress is taking up the issue. You’ve got Nancy Pelosi now claiming that you have to wear a mask if you’re in the House, but not in the Senate — because the science is different — but she doesn’t wear a mask,” said McCarthy, continuing.

“They are not ‘for the people.’ They are about themselves, and this is the wake-up call of this new Republican party.”

White House tells states to prevent evictions, as House Democrats press Biden administration to act

Published

on

The White House told state and local governments that they have the power to prevent evictions, following the end of the eviction moratorium.

The Biden administration said in a statement on Monday that while the federal government provided $46.5 billion to prevent renters from being evicted, some states and cities have been “too slow to act” by not providing the money to tenants.

There is “no excuse for any State or locality not to promptly deploy the resources that Congress appropriated to meet the critical need of so many Americans,” the statement continued. “This assistance provides the funding to pay landlords current and back rent so tenants can remain in their homes or apartments, not be evicted.”

The ban on evictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic expired over the weekend, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was unable to extend it following the Supreme Court’s ruling on June 29 that said only Congress could do so through new legislation.

The Congressional Black Caucus has pressured the White House to take action on evictions, the Associated Press reported. Additionally, Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.)  spoke with Vice President Kamala Harris on Monday at the Capitol, where Bush was camped out with Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) over the weekend to protest the evictions.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic House leadership said in a statement on Sunday that they were calling “upon the Treasury Department to indicate how the funds that it has already transferred to states and communities can be more effectively distributed to renters and landlords.”

The statement also noted that the Senate is unable to pass an extension of the eviction moratorium, so there was no point for the House to do so.

Fully-Vaccinated RINO Lindsey Graham Goes On A Weekend Trip With A Boat Filled With Democrat Senators…Comes Back With COVID

Published

on

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham became a darling of the party when he bravely stood up for Justice Kavanaugh during the Salem Witch Trials his confirmation hearings.

For a short period of time, Americans forgot Senator Graham(SC) was besties with Senator John McCain, the traitor who turned the fake (Hillary Clinton funded) Russian dossier over to the FBI that led to the 4-year-long witch hunt against Donald Trump.

After spending the weekend on Democrat Senator Joe Manchin’s houseboat, the fully-vaccinated RINO Senator Lindsey Graham (SC), announced today that he’s tested positive for COVID.

NBC NEWS REPORTS – HE SAID IN A STATEMENT HE STARTED EXPERIENCING FLU-LIKE SYMPTOMS SATURDAY NIGHT AND WENT TO THE U.S. HOUSE PHYSICIAN MONDAY MORNING.

“I FEEL LIKE I HAVE A SINUS INFECTION AND AT PRESENT TIME I HAVE MILD SYMPTOMS,” GRAHAM, WHO WILL QUARANTINE FOR 10 DAYS, SAID.

HE ADDED: “I AM VERY GLAD I WAS VACCINATED BECAUSE WITHOUT VACCINATION I AM CERTAIN I WOULD NOT FEEL AS WELL AS I DO NOW. MY SYMPTOMS WOULD BE FAR WORSE.”

THE SENATE IS MAKING AN AGGRESSIVE PUSH THIS WEEK TO PASS A $550 BILLION INFRASTRUCTURE BILL AND EVERY VOTE IN THE CHAMBER COULD BE CRITICAL.

OVER THE WEEKEND, GRAHAM ATTENDED A PARTY ON FELLOW SEN. JOE MANCHIN, D-W. VA.’S HOUSEBOAT, ACCORDING TO GRAHAM’S OFFICE AND TWO ADDITIONAL SOURCES FAMILIAR WITH THE MATTER.

THE EVENT WAS HELD ON SATURDAY ON MANCHIN’S HOUSEBOAT, WHICH IS WHERE HE LIVES WHILE IN D.C. SENATORS WERE IN TOWN OVER THE WEEKEND TO WORK ON THE BIPARTISAN INFRASTRUCTURE DEAL.

“SENATOR MANCHIN IS FULLY VACCINATED AND FOLLOWING THE CDC GUIDELINES FOR THOSE EXPOSED TO A COVID POSITIVE INDIVIDUAL,” SAID MANCHIN’S OFFICE IN A STATEMENT.

SENS. MARK KELLY, D-ARIZ., CHRIS COONS, D-DEL., JACKY ROSEN, D-NEV., AND JOHN THUNE, R-S.D., SAID PUBLICLY TO REPORTERS ON MONDAY THAT THEY ALSO ATTENDED THE BOAT PARTY.

In normal times, the fully-vaccinated Lindsey Graham contracting COVID on a boat full of Democrats, the party where a number of members are pushing for mandatory vaccinations, would be a bigger news story. But we’re certainly not living in normal times.

If vaccinations work so well, why are so many people testing positive for COVID after being vaccinated?
