McCarthy Elected Speaker, Reopens “People’s House”, Democrats Upset

“…We pledge to cut the regulatory burden, lower energy costs for families, and create good-paying jobs for workers by unleashing reliable, abundant American-made energy,” McCarthy added. “Our first bill will repeal funding for 87,000 new IRS agents. Because the government should be here to help you, not go after you.”

The Republican also said he would reopen the U.S. Capitol Building, which remained behind additional security measures and was mostly inaccessible to the public following the riots on Jan. 6, 2021.

“My friends – this chamber is now fully open for all Americans,” he said, which was met with thunderous applause from Republicans. Democrats in the chamber remained silent.

Did you catch that?

“My friends, this chamber is now open for all Americans.”

How about that?

The American People can actually visit the Representatives who are supposed to be serving them in the People’s House.

And, the Democrats do not like that one bit.

That one little sentence just negated the entire Democrat Narrative about them being in danger from average Americans (AKA “the peasants”) because of the actions of unarmed Americans let in to the Capitol Building on the orders of Nancy Pelosi.

Yeah, I said it.

This past week’s 15 votes to elect the Speaker of the House was a perfect example of why we are a Constitutional Republic, instead of a Marxist-style mob-ruled “Democracy.”

If our nation worked like the Far Left Democrats want it to, those who objected to having another “Mitch McConnell” leading the House would have been shouted down and “canceled.”

Instead, they had their say, and their input was used to help craft the guidelines for the Republican Majority’s pathway to success in fighting back against the poor stewardship of the Biden Administration and the Democrat Elite.

We are a Constitutional Republic because our Founding Fathers, in their considerable wisdom, wanted to form a nation where every citizen’s rights were respected and every CITIZEN’S vote counted.

The DC Democrats want an amoral totalitarian cradle-to-grave government in which citizenship means nothing, the “Politburo” controls the “Proletariat,” and dissent is not allowed.

As long as we remain a Constitutional Republic, individual American freedom will endure.

In God We Trust.

Pelosi’s Presumed Replacement Supports Reparations

“Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., the presumed front-runner to succeed Nancy Pelosi as leader of the House Democrats, supports legislation to create a commission to study reparations for descendants of enslaved people, reports Fox News.

H.R. 40, authored by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, calls for the creation of an expert panel to study the legacy of slavery and consider reparations for the descendants. The legislation has passed the Judiciary Committee, but Pelosi never brought it to the floor for a vote.

“The call for reparations represents a commitment to entering a constructive dialogue on the role of slavery and racism in shaping present-day conditions in our community and American society,” said Jackson.

Jeffries, if elected, would be the first Black man to lead a major party in Congress. He was one of the bill’s earliest supporters when it was first introduced in 2019.

Jeffries, during a hearing on the bill in the House Judiciary Committee last year, said a study was the least Congress could do for the descendants of enslaved people after generations of injustice.

“We’re not going to move on because after slavery, [there was] Jim Crow and the rise of the KKK,” Jeffries said at the time. “And the lynching epidemic. And Plessy v. Ferguson. And Black Wall Street in 1921 destroyed.” 

“This is a great country, we’ve come a long way, we still have a long way to go, we’re not perfect, but we’re marching to a more perfect union,” said Jeffries. “The least we can do is study these historic wrongs. That’s the least that this Congress can do.”” (Courtesy Newsmax.com)

The Democrats are in favor of reparations for Black Americans for the same reason that they want open borders and to give illegals the right to vote: they are BUYING VOTES!

The truth of the matter is that the Democratic Party has done absolutely nothing for Black Americans.

I’ll take that back. They have done something.

They have encouraged them since President Johnson’s implementation of “The Great Society” to let “Uncle Sugar” take care of them, assuring them that as long as they continued to vote Democrats into public office that they would be “taken care of”.

It has been those Black Americans who have broken out of the cycle of government-assisted poverty who have come to realize that the Democratic Party’s “benevolence” was, in fact, a boat anchor, tied to them to keep them from reaching the shores of self-reliance.

I was going to ask where the Democrats believe that all this money for all of this free stuff and “reparations” is coming from.

However, that’s easy: Hard Working Average Americans.

In the Democrats’ desperation to pander to special interest groups and to divide us as a nation, it is very evident that their main political strategy is simply to buy votes however they can.

Let’s face it.

This planned “study” of reparations is an act of Democrat Desperation just as AG Garland ‘s appointment of a “Special Counsel” to attempt to keep Trump out of the 2024 Presidential Election is.

They are both nothing but political grandstanding designed to pander to those whom they perceive to be their base: Far Left Liberals and special interest groups.

There is no need to hand out free money to the groups being pandered to by the Democrats for “grievances” which happened in the 1700s and 1800s.

None of this current generation nor the previous one of these groups carry any physical or mental scars from the grievances in question.

Democrats like Hakeem Jeffries, and the other members of Congress who are pushing for all of these programs desperately are fighting to keep black Americans on the Democrat Plantation, while being very aware that Joe Biden is the worst President in American History.

The Democrats’ desperation is palpable.

Their “agenda of reparations”, to be funded by American Taxpayers, is unconscionable.

And, just another example of the Democratic Party’s favorite economic strategy: over-taxing average Americans to pay off special interest groups.

Hard-working Americans will not support this.

House Dems Upset That AG Barr is Holding a Press Conference Before They Get Mueller Report

GettyImages-1079525352-1200x832

Would you like a Kleenex, Congressman Schiff?

FoxNews.com reports that

Democrats in Congress attacked Attorney General William Barr Wednesday evening ahead of the Justice Department’s planned release of a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Barr is set to hold a 9:30 a.m. news conference Thursday accompanied by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversaw the Mueller investigation after the special counsel’s appointment in May 2017. Neither Mueller nor other members of his team will attend, according to special counsel spokesman Peter Carr. Democrats have criticized the timing of the news conference, saying that Barr would get to present his interpretation of the Mueller report before Congress and the public see it.

At a news conference Wednesday evening, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said the panel was expected to receive a copy of the report between 11 a.m. and noon, “well after the attorney general’s 9:30 a.m. press conference. This is wrong.”

“The attorney general appears to be waging a media campaign on behalf of President Trump, the very subject of the investigation at the heart of the Mueller report,” Nadler told reporters. “Rather than letting the facts of the report speak for themselves, the attorney general has taken unprecedented steps to spin Mueller’s nearly two-year investigation.”

Hakeem Jeffries, another member of the Judiciary Committee and the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, accused Barr — whom Jeffries dubbed the “so-called Attorney General” of “presiding over a dog and pony show.

“Here is a thought,” Jeffries added. “Release the Mueller report tomorrow morning and keep your mouth shut. You have ZERO credibility.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tweeted that Barr “has thrown out his credibility & the DOJ’s independence with his single-minded effort to protect ⁦‪@realDonaldTrump⁩ above all else. The American people deserve the truth, not a sanitized version of the Mueller Report approved by the Trump Admin.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said, “The process is poisoned before the report is even released.”

“Barr shouldn’t be spinning the report at all, but it’s doubly outrageous he’s doing it before America is given a chance to read it,” Schumer added.

Democrats were further angered Wednesday by a New York Times report which said Justice Department officials have had “numerous conversations with White House lawyers” about Mueller’s conclusions, which have aided the president’s legal team as it prepares a rebuttal to the special counsel’s report. The Times report has not been independently confirmed by Fox News.

Late Wednesday, Nadler and four other Democratic committee chairs released a joint statement calling on Barr to cancel the Thursday morning news conference, calling it “unnecessary and inappropriate.”

“He [Barr] should let the full report speak for itself, read the statement from Nadler, Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Elijah Cummings, D-Md., Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and Eliot Engel, D-N.Y. “The Attorney General should cancel the press conference and provide the full report to Congress, as we have requested. With the Special Counsel’s fact-gathering work concluded, it is now Congress’ responsibility to assess the findings and evidence and proceed accordingly.”

In court filings in the case against Roger Stone on Wednesday, the Justice Department also said it planned to provide a “limited number” of members of Congress and their staff access to a copy of the Mueller report with fewer redactions than the public version.

Nadler claimed Wednesday evening that the Judiciary Committee “has no knowledge of this and this should not be read as any agreement or knowledge or assent on our part.”

Nadler added that he would “probably find it useful” to call Mueller and members of his team to testify after reading the version of the report Barr releases.

The report is expected to reveal what Mueller uncovered about ties between the Trump campaign and Russia that fell short of criminal conduct. And, it likely will lay out the special counsel’s conclusions about formative episodes in Trump’s presidency, including his firing of FBI Director James Comey; his request of Comey to end an investigation into Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn; his relentless badgering of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his recusal from the Russia investigation; and his role in drafting an explanation about a meeting his oldest son took at Trump Tower with a Kremlin-connected lawyer.

The report is not expected to place the president in legal jeopardy, as Barr made his own decision that Trump shouldn’t be prosecuted for obstruction. But it is likely to contain unflattering details about the president’s efforts to control the Russia investigation

Overall, Mueller brought charges against 34 people — including six Trump aides and advisers — and revealed a sophisticated, wide-ranging Russian effort to influence the 2016 presidential election. Twenty-five of those charged were Russians accused either in the hacking of Democratic email accounts or of a hidden but powerful social media effort to spread disinformation online.

Five former Trump aides or advisers pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate in Mueller’s investigation, including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. Stone is awaiting trial on charges including false statements and obstruction.

I am shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

How dare Attorney General Barr hold a press conference before allowing Congress to see the redacted Mueller Report.

Why…why…it is almost as if he is the top legal authority in America…or something.

Doesn’t he know that the Legislative Branch actually governs our Sovereign Nation and not the Executive Branch?

After all, Speaker of the House Pelosi has been telling everyone who will listen, including our European Allies, that she is the president’s co-equal.

Even though she’s not.

Seriously, have you ever seen a bunch of unscrupulous political hacks attempt to make something out of nothing simply because they are sore losers?

The entire country has figured out that President Trump did not “collude” with the Russians.

The neverending bad behavior of the Democrats reminds me of the old saying

If your enemy is digging himself a hole, hand him another shovel.

Let them rant.

Congress already has horrible popularity poll numbers. Instead of continuing to try to undo the results of the 2016 Presidential Election, shouldn’t they actually be trying to pass laws to improve the lives of the American People?

I guess not. That would be too much like “right”.

Yesterday, I saw a Fox News Poll in which 4 out of 10 Americans believed that the Trump Campaign was spied upon by the FBI and DOJ under the Obama Administration.

What are the House Democrats going to do when AG Barr begins that investigation, as he has promised to?

Tell him that he can’t?

Good luck with that.

Today and the days to follow should be very interesting.

Pass the popcorn.

Until He Comes,
