Now We Know Why the Administration ‘Tried
to Bury’ the Announcement

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blasted the Biden administration’s budget released Friday, contending the proposal will “drown American families in debt, deficits, and inflation.” “Now we know why the Administration tried to bury their budget announcement on the Friday before a holiday weekend,” the Kentucky Republican said in a Friday statement following the release of Biden’s budget, explaining it would have a negative impact on American families by drowning them “debt, deficits, and inflation.” “Even after the massive tax hikes Democrats want to force on the American people, they’d still have the government running trillion-plus-dollar deficits every year,” McConnell stated:

It should not be a shock that the communists want to destroy the American system and replace it with communism. That is what is happening.

We all knew what was going to happen when the presidency was stolen from Donald Trump and so did Mitch. He was in a position to do something but he joined the enemy in opposing a real leader and letting an incompetent sock puppet operated by radicals take over the country. The best thing Mitch can do now is shut up, retire and go home in disgrace. Maybe he and Mike Pence can share an occasional round of golf together.

Biden's Buffoons release the worst budget ever, and what does Mitch do? He releases a strongly worded statement. So unimpressed. We had a President that stood up to the democrats. What did the Republicans do? They stabbed him in the back and forced him out of office. What will they do about the budget? NOTHING. The Republicans will do what they always do. They will passively stand by, and support the Democrats. If any Republican should break rank, and attack the Democrats, the rest of the Republicans will attack them. Want to know why prices are going up? Just look at the budget. The dollar is being devalued because of out of control spending that we cannot afford. We are so screwed.

Obama "I want to fundamentally change this country." Obama's mentor "growing" up in Hawaii was a Communist. When Biden's mask is removed, there is Obama and his regime. Obama's 3rd presidency. We all know this. Who is fighting Communism in this country? Is this the 1950s all over again? Joe McCarthy was probably wrong in his tactics, (It was before our time) but the Communist threat in this country was real. See the Korean War. Wasn't that about stopping Communism?

Senator and minority leader of the Senate, Mitch McConnell released this strongly worded statement? WOW. My God, the man is a machine; defending this nation, putting himself in danger, throwing caution to the wind, (help me out with more cliches) throwing himself in front of the speeding socialism express eating the nation........What a man! What a hero! What a pathetic, spineless, corrupt excuse of a human being. Mitch wouldn't be minority leader, if he had supported President Trump. And I don't want to hear yet again, the magic he worked on the judges. Turns out, that was another disaster we have yet to see the benefits of. McConnell should be front and center trying to get to the truth about the stolen election ensuring that the 2022 and 2024 elections will be honest and legal. But no, instead he released strongly worded statements blasting the Obama III/Biden administration about this cataclysmic spending bill. Wooooo. Look out now. His words will really, really scare these socialists and stop them in their tracks. If we ever get the Senate back, McConnell must NEVER, EVER be allowed to become majority leader again. And quite frankly, the same goes for the other pathetic, corrupt loser, Kevin McCarthy. Devin Nunes should become Speaker if we ever get an honest election again and take back the House.

I always thought that a business man would not make a good president or governor because both require dealing with the long term opposing politicians who know how to work the system and then convincing the public that you know what you are doing. Donald Trumps presidency went that way basically because I was correct. He was actually a very good president who incurred the wrath of the democrats and paid the price. What really did him in though was the TDS republicans who let it happen. The democrats stole the election and the RINOS let it happen.

President Joe Biden confirmed Friday that Americans should expect more coronavirus-related restrictions, as the Delta variant of the virus continues to spread. Biden spoke about more restrictions on Americans after CBS reporter Weijia Jiang asked him if he expected more restrictions as the virus spreads across the country. “In all probability,” he replied as he left the White House for a weekend trip to Camp David. Biden also signaled optimism that more Americans were getting vaccinated, citing “almost a million” people getting their shots on Thursday.

Gov.

The order states “no governmental entity, including a county, city, school district, and public health authority, and no governmental official may require any person to wear a face covering or to mandate that another person wear a face covering,” with limited exceptions. “No governmental entity can compel any individual to receive a COVID-19 vaccine administered under an emergency use authorization,” the order continues, barring

Americans expect more inflaton this year and remain uneasy about the direction of the economy, the University of Michigan’s survey of consumers showed Friday. Expect4ed inflation over the next year rose to 4.7 percent from 4.2 percent in June. That’s the highest level in over a decade. At least for now, however, Americans still believe that inflation will remain tame over the long term. Expected inflation over the next five years is just 2.8 percent, down from 3 percent in May. “While most consumers still expect inflation to be transitory, there is growing evidence that an inflation storm is likely to develop on the not too distant horizon.

Republicans in the House Energy and Commerce Committee unveiled a package of 32 bills to hold Big Tech accountable by reforming Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, protecting children and improving transparency, among other goals. “Big Tech has broken our trust that they can be good and responsible stewards of their platforms,” said Ranking Member Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA).

Republican staffers defied Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday evening by playing beer pong (with water) in a Capitol office hallway, smoking cigars, and socializing — without masks, courting arrest by Capitol Police. As Breitbart News reported Thursday, Pelosi ordered Capitol Police to arrest any staff and visitors who refused to comply with new mask mandates, which she imposed earlier in the week, regardless of vaccination status. She ordered the Capitol Police to report members of Congress who refused to comply to the House Sergeant at Arms for disciplinary action. In response, several GOP members of Congress defied Pelosi’s orders by allowing staff to work without masks, or remotely. But

The Times op-ed, titled “There Is No Good Reason You Should Have to Be a Citizen to Vote” and authored by Atossa Araxia Abrahamian, contends that U.S. elections should be opened to those of voting-age in the nation’s 15 million-strong legal immigrant population who arrived on temporary visas or green cards but do not have American citizenship.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest confused pronouncement about masks is another blow to the embattled agency, whose track record hasn’t been exactly brilliant. For months, the CDC has married a god-awful communications strategy with a determination to cater to the most irrational whims of the paranoid, triple-masking urban gentry: the whims of the archetypical Karen, in other words. The latest stutter-step is an embarrassment for the public-health establishment and for a Team Biden left trying to explain what the CDC meant. But there’s also an opportunity here for Republicans heading into the 2022 election: The GOP should run as the anti-lockdown party — the anti-Karen party.

For the first time in 45 years, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a spending bill funding Medicaid without the Hyde Amendment, a measure that protects taxpayers from being forced to pay for abortion. The spending bill will face a tough hurdle in the Senate, but the bill still sets a terrifying precedent for pro-life taxpayers. The bill, which includes seven of the twelve annual appropriations bills to fund the government for the next fiscal year, which begins on October 1, passed the House 219-208 along party lines. Republicans opposed the bill because Democrats had removed two essential abortion-related provisions: the Hyde Amendment and the Weldon Amendment

One of the most obvious misconceptions about liberals today is that they personify tolerance. The Oxford English Dictionary defines tolerance as "the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with. A recent poll by the Survey Center on American Life at the American Enterprise Institute found that Democrats are twice as likely as Republicans to report ending a friendship over a political disagreement (20% versus 10%). Liberals are also "far more likely than conservatives are to say they are no longer friends with someone due to political differences" (28% versus 10%).

University of Sydney researchers assessed behaviours and attitudes towards Covid regulations in 1,575 people in Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US between April and May last year, during the first wave of the pandemic.

President Joe Biden joined his wife at Walter Reed for the procedure. The Bidens returned to the White House Thursday night.
