Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich called out “precious politicians” who are avoiding getting back to Washington due to the coronavirus pandemic.Gingrich found it “bizarre” that some lawmakers would consider themselves any different from those who are working through the crisis, calling on them in tweets to get back to work or “resign.”(Photo) The comments from the Republican, who served as House Speaker from 1995 to 1999, came in the wake of the attempt to hold an unprecedented proxy vote in the House amid lawmakers’ fears of traveling to the nation’s capital during the coronavirus outbreak.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi scrapped plans on a rules change last week

Kevin McCarthy should insist all Republican congresscritters return to Washington next week. H I'll d phony hearings like the Dems did (remember the lGeorgetown law school dirz. Ms Flucke, or whstever her name was, who was too cheap to spend $9 a month for birth control pills but wanted us taxpayers to foot the bill). Make speeches, hang out in the halls, hire out a gourmet ice cream cart, etc.

Nowhere else in the country is there such a cushy job as a politician in DC. You get paid $175,000/year with tens of thousands extra for any extra-circular activity, get taxpayer funded junkets to vacation in other countries for "fact finding" (by all means bring the family moochers along), yet never have to show up for work and still get paid. They used to pretend to "work" on Tues, Wed, and Thurs (Mon & Fri are travel days). but In the 2020 session alone, how many times were they on "vacation"? I think the only time Piglousi had them all there was strictly for the impeachment BS. What a gig!

#1, you are right on. Kevin McCarthy is a Paul Ryan and John Boehner light. I'm calling my Congressman today and tell him that we need a replacement for this joker as minority speaker.

House of Representatives, under Nervous Nancy, has become "non-essential". If she is on vacation, stop paying them and Mr. President - please take away her airplane.

So, if they are all out of town, then show up (maybe) to VOTE on legislation..... WHO WROTE THE LEGISLATION! Hmmmmm...... Sundance over at ConservativeTreeHouse maintains that ALL the legislation is actually WRITTEN by Special Interest groups, who then hire Lobbyists to 'sell' it to the CongressCritters. Is THIS is what our Legislative branch has become? As my Dad, a WWII US Marine Corps Staff Sergeant used to say...."Why complain? We have the Best Congress that Money Can Buy."

On Wednesday, after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before Congress while Democrats remained crushingly silent about Big Tech’s alleged attempts to suppress conservative points of view, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) ripped Dorsey, calling him a “partisan and a hypocrite,” and slammed Democrats: “There are no liberals left in the Democrat Party. Not a single Democrat Senator defended free speech or freedom of the press today.” He concluded, “This should terrify Americans.” (Tweet)

The U.S. economy grew at a record-shattering pace in the third quarter as businesses reopened from the coronavirus shutdown, but the nation remains in a deep hole from the COVID-induced recession.Gross domestic product, the broadest measure of goods and services produced across the economy, surged by 33.1% on an annualized basis in the three-month period from July through September, the Commerce Department said in its first reading of the data Thursday. The previous post-World War II record was a 16.7% increase in 1950. Refinitiv economists expected the report to show the economy had expanded by 31%. But the headline figure obscures the full picture:

Mr. Trump has called the report a “total fake.” “These are the same people saying that we can’t have tuition-free public colleges because there’s no money,” Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said, “when these motherf–ers are only paying $750 a year in taxes.”

On Tuesday night, Tucker Carlson did something he’d never done before: He dedicated his entire show to a single interview. The person he interviewed was Tony Bobulinski, an experienced international businessman who found himself working with Hunter Biden, James Biden, and others on a deal between the Biden group and CEFC, a Chinese energy company with ties to the Communist government and the military. Bobulinski powerfully confirms that Joe Biden was deeply involved in the transaction, which had its beginnings when Joe was still Vice President.

Joe Biden called President Donald Trump “George” on Sunday, as if he were running against George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, or maybe George Washington, before catching himself. (Or being helped by someone outside the camera’s view.) He appeared to be a tired old man in need of help with his everyday life. Yet at both debates, though he made mistakes, he looked to be far more sentient, at times even sharp, in stark contrast to the doddering senior citizen we usually see. How can this happen? “What kind of country we’re gonna be,” Biden asked in a weekend interview

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that she will be a member of the Electoral College for New York this year, and that she plans to vote against President Trump. The former New York senator won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College to Trump in 2016, and supports abolishing the institution. “I’m an elector in New York,” Clinton told SiriusXM’s “Signal Boost” in an interview. Clinton will cast one of New York’s 29 electoral votes when the 538-member body gathers in December to formalize the Nov. 3 election results. “I’m sure I’ll get to vote for Joe [Biden] and [Sen.

Carlson’s producer forwarded the documents to Los Angeles, where Carlson was interviewing Tony Bobulinsky – but the documents vanished along the way. Carlson explained that, on Monday, his producer deposited the envelope with a major American shipping company. However, by Tuesday morning, the shipping company notified Carlson’s team that the envelope was now open and empty.

You can call me Pollyannish, but I am beginning to believe I may have underestimated the silent Trump vote in my previous posts. This is why. I mentioned the 2020 Cato Institute poll before, which discusses the high percentage of conservatives who are afraid to express their political views. Something I failed to consider was: Nearly two‐​thirds of Latino Americans (65%) and White Americans (64%) and nearly half of African Americans (49%) have political views they are afraid to share. Why would 65% of Latin voters and 49% of Black voters be afraid to express their political views, especially if 70-90% of them, respectively, are voting for Biden?
