House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy came out in opposition on Tuesday to a bill establishing a 9/11-style commission to investigate the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said a vote will occur this week in the House on the commission bill after an agreement was reached in the Homeland Security Committee.

McCarthy said on Tuesday he opposes the bill.

“For months, the speaker of the House refused to negotiate in good faith on basic parameters that would govern a commission to examine the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. During this time, the speaker even falsely claimed in the press that she had delivered Republicans a counterproposal, when in reality her proposal would not surface until weeks later,” he said in a statement.

“Given the political misdirections that have marred this process, given the now duplicative and potentially counterproductive nature of this effort, and given the speaker’s shortsighted scope that does not examine interrelated forms of political violence in America, I cannot support this legislation,” he added.

Sen. Rubio demands President Biden fire Gen. Milley immediately

Published

on

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is urging President Biden to fire Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley immediately. 

In a letter to the president, Rubio, vice-chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, writes with “grave concern” regarding recent reporting that Milley allegedly “worked to actively undermine the sitting Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces and contemplated a treasonous leak of classified information to the Chinese Communist Party in advance of a potential armed conflict.”

“Even more egregiously, reports indicate that General Milley interfered with the procedures by which the civilian commander-in-chief can order a nuclear strike,” writes Rubio.

“A senior military officer interfering with that civilian-controlled process is simply unacceptable at best, and at worst, would cause ambiguity which could lead to war,” he went on to say.

The actions are reportedly described in a forthcoming book, “Peril,” by Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. 

Rubio ended the letter by warning the president that the United States’ reputation was at stake if he didn’t immediately dismiss Gen. Milley, not to mention the potential national security risks such a deviation from long-standing procedures could inflict on the nation.

Trump Screws Liz Cheney As Third Primary Challenger Drops Out Of Race After Heeding Trump’s Advice

Published

on

Liz Cheney’s only chance at keeping her seat in Congress, in the face of a tough primary led by former President Donald Trump, was to split the vote.

The other candidates smelled blood nin the water and jumped into the race to primary Liz. But too many saw the doomed Liz Cheney as an easy win, and in a deep red state, knew the winner could keep that seat for years if they wanted.

So it looked good for Cheney for a while but Trump stepped in to clear the field and dropped his crucial endorsement on an old friend of Cheney’s, Harriet Hageman.

And then Trump went after the other candidates in the primary race telling them to drop out as they have no chance without his endorsement arguing that that was the best way to send Cheney packing.

To Liz’s abject horror the other candidates are listening to Trump and putting personal ambition to the side to make sure she gets fired. 

First, two big names in the Wyoming GOP dropped out of the race.

Cheyenne attorney Darin Smith and Sheridan County Republican Party Chairman Bryan Miller suspended their campaigns after Trump’s endorsement went to Hageman.

And today a third primary challenger announced they were suspending their campaign all but sealing Cheney’s doomed fate.

Wyoming state Rep. Chuck Gray, of Casper, said he is out of the race to help defeat Cheney. He said:

“Our first and most important goal is to unite to defeat Liz Cheney.

“With that in mind, I will be suspending my campaign today.

“Liz Cheney has betrayed our values. 

“And to counter Liz’s betrayal, our campaign has been focused on advancing Wyoming values,” he said.

Hageman said:

“Chuck Gray is an honorable man who has been standing for Wyoming’s Conservative values for years. 

“We can’t take back our Congressional seat unless we are united, and I am humbled by his decision to keep fighting to protect Wyoming through his work in the Legislature.

Gray was the big name in the race besides Cheney, but Darin Smith and Bryan Miller had strong support. With all three out of the race, only lesser-known candidates with no real chance remain. Sen. Anthony Bouchard (R) is the last big name in the race but he has more skeletons than one could count in his closet so he is not a real threat.

In short, Cheney will probably pull a Joe Lieberman and run as an independent but Wyoming is not like Connecticut and that will fail is she tries it.

From The Hill:

Gray had been one of the more prominent challengers, jumping into the contest early this year and crisscrossing the state.

However, Trump’s endorsement of Hageman last week marked a turning point in the GOP primary and a culmination of Republican anger with Cheney, who has infuriated the base with her vote to impeach Trump, her frequent needling of him over his unsubstantiated claims of election fraud and her role on the select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection.

“Harriet Hageman adores the Great State of Wyoming, is strong on Crime and Borders, powerfully supports the Second Amendment, loves our Military and our Vets, and will fight for Election Integrity and Energy Independence (which Biden has already given up). Unlike RINO Liz Cheney, Harriet is all in for America First. Harriet has my Complete and Total Endorsement in replacing the Democrats number one provider of sound bites, Liz Cheney,” Trump said last week, using an acronym for “Republican in name only.”

Nancy Pelosi Suffers Huge Blow As Three Moderate Dems Revolt Against Her Drug Pricing Plan

Published

on

Nancy Pelosi suffered a huge and quite embarrassing defeat today when three moderate Dem revolted and sunk Pelosi’s prized prescription drug plan.

The Dems legislation to lower drug prices, the one they have been campaigning on and the one Nancy holds dear to her heart, was just defeated in a House committee after three moderate Democrats voted against the Dem party.

Reps. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), Scott Peters (D-Calif.), and Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.) voted against the Dems plan to allow the secretary of Health and Human Services to negotiate lower drug prices.

But it is more than just a blow to Pelosi’s ego – their drug scheme was a key way the Dems planned to pay for the $3.5 trillion spending boondoggle they are trying to ram through Congress.

With Joe Manchin saying he wants the bill paid for before he will greenlight it, if the Dems can’t resurrect this portion of the bill the whole thing may fall apart. Manchin does not like the price tag and he does not want to add to the deficit.

Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone Jr. (D-N.J.) begged the 3 moderates to vote yes saying: “Vote to move forward today. Vote to continue the conversation.”

Pallone remained upbeat despite the loss saying the final bill will have some drug price reform in it.

“I know it is going to have drug pricing reform,” Pallone said but will it be enough to offset the concerns of Joe Manchin? Not a chance.

Henry Connelly, a spokesman for Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), said:

“Polling consistently shows immense bipartisan support for Democrats’ drug price negotiation legislation, including overwhelming majorities of Republicans and independents who are fed up with Big Pharma charging Americans so much more than they charge for the same medicines overseas,” he said in a statement after the vote.

“Delivering lower drug costs is a top priority of the American people and will remain a cornerstone of the Build Back Better Act as work continues between the House, Senate and White House on the final bill.”

“Reps. Peters, Rice, and Schrader are prioritizing drug company profits over lower drug prices for the American people, particularly for patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis,” said Patrick Gaspard, president of the left-leaning Center for American Progress.

 “To the contrary of what they contend, their opposition to the drugs proposal threatens the entirety of President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda, which Democrats have campaigned on for years and that they previously voted for.”
