The Treasury Department inspector general confirmed in a letter to Democratic lawmakers that the agency is planning to audit whether spending by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on migrant flights was improper. The lawmakers asked the Treasury Department to look into whether Florida improperly used American Rescue Plan funds for the migrant flights to Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, which drew widespread media attention. Florida lawmakers authorized a $12 million migrant program funded with interest earnings from the federal Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Fund, according to documents.


Can they also check to see if this administration is spending Federal money inappropriately?

I guess either Governor DeSantis has done great on the Hurricane or the Democrats don’t care about the Florida residents still struggling to put their lives back together or it could be both. I’m saying it’s both. The Democrats can all go to HELL and soon!

So it begins. DeSantis is getting the "Trump" treatment. Soon they'll be investigating if he ever picked his feet in Poughkeepsie.

Brandon has been sponsoring many daily flights and bus trips using OUR money. This is technically theft but nobody f**** with the Biden Crime Family. A weaponized Treasury Department is not in our best interests so when the housecleaning begins, don't be surprised if they are on the list when we start selecting lamp posts.

Gee, it’s so surprising the Biden admin is going to abuse the police power of the federal government to target a political enemy. Shocking. Next you’ll tell me he tried to temporarily lower the price of oil by dumping the emergency reserve. Or uses the FBI improperly. Or censors people using corporate proxies. Or uses the SEC and OCC to target banks and public companies who do not give him money. Or use taxpayer money to bribe a country to fire s prosecutor who was going to put Hunter in prison

By flying a bunch of migrants (illegal aliens) from border States to the liberal utopia of Martha’s Vineyard, MA, and the liberal Democrat elites reaction to immediately push those illegal aliens off that island, Florida Governor DiSantis got the attention of the entire country in relation to Biden’s and the leftist Democrat’s “open borders” initiatives that are flooding the USA with mostly all poor and uneducated migrants (illegal aliens) who Biden and the Democrats believe will transition through Democrat designed “Path to Citizenship” amnesties that Biden and the Democrats play up as being necessary comprehensive immigration reform, into future socialist Democrat supporters and voters by the tens of millions. Biden and the Democrats can’t have the border State and Florida Republican Governors getting the attention of the entire country before the upcoming election by openly flying increasing numbers of illegal aliens into elite Democrat utopias and inner cities that are bringing Biden’s and the Democrat’s massive criminal conspiracy to violate the U.S. immigration laws. So now Biden and the Democrats will now investigate and attempt to persecute DiSantis.

The whole damn government has been politicized by the Democrats to the point where you can always rely on some or other bureaucrat snapping to to do the bidding of the DNC or Biden administration.whenever the opportunity arises to go after Republicans deemed dangerous to the continued power of the Democrats. Of course, FBI and DOJ are the most problematic, but Treasury and the IRS (who can forget Lois Lerner?) will do their bit too when asked. It's ALL political now. There is no public service for the good of the whole nation.

CNN on Thursday revealed exclusive footage from January 6 that came directly from Nancy Pelosi’s daughter herself. It was hand-selected by the partisan January 6 committee to show the American public on primetime cable television. There are still 14,000 hours of footage from January 6 that the Department of Justice won’t allow the American people to see, presumably because it would damage its ability to prosecute J6 political prisoners in court. Approximately thirty seconds into CNN’s presentation of the Democrat-selected footage, there is a suspect appearance of “mystery man” Ray Epps.

"We've noted that flu activity is starting to increase across much of the country," especially in the Southeast and south-central U.S., the CDC's director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, told NBC News. "Not everybody got flu vaccinated last year, and many people did not get the flu.

Never let a crisis go to waste, Rahm Emanuel once advised. Add to that this new axiom: Never let your emergency powers expire. As incompetent as Joe Biden might otherwise be, he’s proven adept at following both. Again: The Biden administration extended the Covid-19 pandemic’s status as a public health emergency for another 90 days, preserving measures such as expanded Medicaid and higher payments to hospitals. The decision follows comments President Biden made in September describing the pandemic as over. Some Republican lawmakers said afterward that the administration should wind down its pandemic response and the emergency designation.

That share is more than one-sixth greater than the 27.3% that Queens residents contribute to the city’s total population, according to 2020 census data. “It’s a powder keg in Queens at this point,”
