to sign on for formal challenge to Biden's
OSHA vaccine mandate

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 11/4/2021 12:59:00 AM

Senator Mike Braun from Indiana has secured the support of forty other Republican senators to formally challenge President Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine rules on employers with 100 or more employees. Braun is the ranking member of the Senate Subcommittee on Employment and Workplace Safety. Biden’s mandate, to be written by the Department of Labor and enforced through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is expected to be completed and distributed any day now. The subcommittee has jurisdiction over OSHA. There are some notable exemptions to Biden’s vaccine mandate, besides religious objections and medical exemptions.

"A Republican aide told Fox News that the remaining nine GOP senators — Sens. Mitch McConnell, Richard Shelby, Susan Collins, Roy Blunt, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, Bill Cassidy, Tim Scott and Rob Portman — are awaiting the formal filing of the OSHA rule. The aide said that there is no Republican opposition to the disapproval." If true, the headline is deceptive. I have enough outrage about current events without some half-baked jagoff site like Hot Air trying to manufacture more.

Of course the deep State wrecking crew led by Mitch McConnell. No surprise here. All of these people are heavily invested in Phizer JJ and Abbott Labs among others. Lots of money to be made and there are lined up to cash in. May God strike them all dead.

Every time I read about Congress having different rules than the citizens of this great country, it infuriates me. They make "rules for thee but not for me." No vaccine mandate for them. UGH

The so called' science' we keep hearing about is political. Pubbies want the mandate ended and the Democrats don't. This isn't science, the vaccines are about power and control.

Before reading the article, I could have listed at least 6 of the nine and I would have been correct. McConnell, Shelby, Collins, Blunt, Murkowski, Romney. I missed Cassidy, Scott and Portman. Historically, this bunch of Super RINO's cannot be counted on to support any traditional conservative movement or legislation. Collins, Murkowski and Romney are the worst.

Showdown: Pelosi dares liberals to sink
infrastructure bill

Posted by Dreadnought 11/5/2021 8:21:47 PM Post Reply
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Friday escalated the tense standoff over President Biden's domestic agenda, daring liberals in her own caucus to oppose a bipartisan infrastructure bill that's languished in the House for months while negotiators haggled over a larger social spending package. Progressives, behind Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), have blocked the infrastructure proposal for fear that Senate centrists — Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) — would reject the bigger "family" benefits bill if the more popular public works bill had already reached Biden's desk. In response, Pelosi has kept the infrastructure bill off the floor, even despite urging the liberals to reconsider their objections

How much do Joe Biden and the Democrats care about the problems that Americans are facing with Biden inflation, in particular rising food and gas prices? Biden previously said that he didn’t see any “near term” solution for the rising gas prices. He went overseas, begged Russia and Saudi Arabia to pump more saying it was “not right,” looking incredibly weak with such pleading. Meanwhile, he’s been lobbying against fossil fuels in America and doing in our energy production with moves like cutting the Keystone XL pipeline and the Willow Project for more drilling in Alaska.

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said again on Thursday that there will be no mandates for children to receive coronavirus vaccinations in Florida. He also said officials will not set up state-run vaccination sites similar to the ones opened at the beginning of the year for adults, WFLA reported. “The vaccines are going to everybody in the normal medical system the way it is,” DeSantis explained. “So we’re not doing vaccine sites. They’re at the pharmacies. They’re readily available for everybody.” “I don’t think there’s any difference in the vaccine that’s doing,” he continued. “I think they may take a lower dosage.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Thursday that his state will officially file a lawsuit against President Biden's COVID-19 vaccine mandate. During a press conference with state Attorney General Ashley Moody in Tampa, DeSantis said Florida would be joining Georgia, Alabama and private plaintiffs in suing the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) over its vaccine mandate for employers. "This is not consistent with a government of limited and enumerated powers," the Republican governor said. "There is no general police power, there is no power to mandate on the American people from the federal government." "Individuals should make informed choices about their own healthcare," he added.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Gov. Ron DeSantis appears unstoppable. A year before the Florida gubernatorial election, the Republican governor has nearly $60 million in the bank. The GOP is on the cusp of becoming the state’s majority party after erasing Democrats’ enormous voter registration advantage. The Democratic field is splintering and support for President Joe Biden has collapsed in the state. It’s a situation that has alarmed Democrats, who fear that Florida’s days as a battleground state are over and that national donors will write off their candidates. “Right now Democrats are engaged in Powerball politics. They could get lucky, but it’s more likely to happen because of circumstances outside their control

President Joe Biden, having failed twice to convince House Democrats to back his legislative agenda, resorted Thursday to personally calling lawmakers to beg them to vote for the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Act. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) tentatively scheduled a vote on the Build Back Better Act, or the Democrats’ social welfare and climate change spending reconciliation act. Biden has pinned his legislative agenda on his passing dual infrastructure bills, the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and the Build Back Better Act. He expected his legislative majorities in the House and Senate to pass these bills despite the frictions between House moderate and progressive Democrats.

The Texas voting law will “disenfranchise eligible Texas citizens who seek to exercise their right to vote, including voters with limited English proficiency, voters with disabilities, elderly voters, members of the military deployed away from home, and American citizens residing outside of the country,” the suit claims. The law, which was ushered through by Texas Republicans as Senate Bill 1, further tightens state election laws and constrains local control of elections by limiting counties’ ability to expand voting options.
