House Republicans launched an effort to rein in Big Tech’s growing tyranny with an onslaught of new bills in a massive push to fight back against online censorship. 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). McMorris Rodgers did note that “the goal is for these drafts is to lead to concrete legislation and reforms.

It's good to get these bills in the pipeline and ready to pass when we retake power.

Their favorite trick is to present bills they know won't pass or be signed. They use them for fund raising. I still remember John Kasich of all people, sounding like MTG while on the Mike Reagan Show in 1993. Those were the most deadly years of Clinton and company. His bills went nowhere, but he was still playing conservative back then. They do the same thing now.

The Republicans are like the Three Stooges when they are not in power. Like the scene holding Curly back from a fight......Let me at 'em, Let me at 'em, I'll tear 'em apart, I'll rip 'em limb to limb as Moe and Larry are holding Curly back.

Details? How are they going to pass the bill when they have no majority anywhere? They have to have veto proof majority to override a certain Biden veto. Focus on retaking the House and the Senate. This would not go anywhere without retaking the House and the Senate.

David Goldman (also known as “Spengler”) summarizes with approval the analysis of Chinese professor Jin Canrong. The professor’s thesis is this: [T]he United States has issued a massive amount of excess currency due to the epidemic, and the amount of currency issuance far exceeds the normal needs of economic development, so there is a situation in which more currency is issued but production cannot be restored. Inflation in the United States is rising, which will put a lot of pressure on the U.S. finances. The U.S. federal debt is approaching $30 trillion. What does this imply?

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.

You’d be forgiven for forgetting they existed, but the fugitive Texas Democrats, who fled their state to stop the passage of a mundane voting integrity bill, are still hanging out in Washington, DC. Where exactly, I’m not sure, but I like to imagine them sleeping on cots and eating ramen noodles every night while they mutter obscenities about Gov. Greg Abbott to each other. That’s when they aren’t spreading COVID to everyone, of course. There was a sighting a few days ago in which some of them appeared with Al Sharpton at the MLK memorial.

You know you’ve screwed up badly as a spokesman when you have to walk back something stupid you said not once but twice.

Gov. Greg Abbott (R) took executive action on Thursday, signing an order barring cities from implementing mask and vaccine requirements; this move is part of the administration’s effort to “promote statewide uniformity and certainty” in the Lone Star State’s coronavirus response. 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.

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 United States ought to allow foreign nationals legally in the U.S. to vote in local, state, and federal elections with Democrats as the “biggest beneficiaries,” a New York Times op-ed argues. 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. Democrats, the op-ed admits, “are likely to be the biggest beneficiaries of this change,” though Abrahamian claims Republicans “might be induced

Provo, Utah–As Mindy Greene spent another day in the COVID intensive care unit, listening to the whirring machines that now breathed for her 42-year-old husband, Russ, she opened her phone and tapped out a message. "We did not get the vaccine," she wrote on Facebook. "I read all kinds of things about the vaccine and it scared me.

Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) joined Jay Thomas on “The Jay Thomas Show” on Tuesday and took questions from local callers. During their conversation Senator Cramer was asked by a caller about Ashli Babbitt and her killer Lt. Mike Byrd. Senator Cramer refused to identify the killer but said he was grateful for the officer’s action. Senator Cramer then lied and said Ashli Babbitt was warned by police before she was shot in an ambush. This is a bald-faced lie. The officer hid in the shadows, did not utter a word, and then shot Ashli Babbitt in the neck as she climbed through a window. She was unarmed and was not a threat.
