House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told reporters Thursday that he skipped House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) leadership retirement speech because he “had meetings.” McCarthy, who is in line to replace Pelosi as House speaker, wasn’t the only Republican to miss the address. The Republican side of the lower chamber was largely empty during her farewell, according to reports. “I had meetings, but normally, the others would do it during votes — I wish she could have done that, I could have been there,”

And don't look for Nanie to gracefully hand over the gavel to McCarthy or any other pubbie who becomes House Speaker. Nanie will throw it at their feet requiring the pubbies to bend over for it.

Piglosi won't even hand over the gavel to McCarthy. She doesn't want that photo op to happen, so some underling will do it. If this POS's casket is placed in the Capitol rotunda, there should be another run on the Capitol to remove it.

Former President Donald Trump was once again the subject of this week's Sunday shows, not only because of his announcement from Tuesday night that he is once more running for president, but because Elon Musk on Saturday night made the decision to reinstate his Twitter account. Few were more hysterical than Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who serves on the January 6 select committee and was named the lead impeachment manager in Trump's first impeachment.  Schiff spoke with host Jonathan Karl on ABC News' "This Week," with the reinstatement being the first topic. Schiff was particularly agitated that Musk reinstated Trump based on a "SNAP poll.

Most believe the incoming Republican-led U.S. House of Representatives should take action, including investigating Hunter Biden and ending the January 6 committee, November’s Harris Poll/HarrisX survey revealed. The survey found Americans desiring the House to take a series of actions — some of which could happen with Republicans taking over the lower chamber.  Nearly two-thirds, 65 percent, agree that the House should investigate the “Hunter Biden laptop,” specifically. Further, 71 percent said the House should “investigate the origins” of the Chinese coronavirus, and 77 percent believe the House should “investigate the FBI and whether politics has been playing a role in its actions.”

Greetings, and Happy Thanksgiving y'all! Many of you may recognize the title of this missive which came from NY Yankees baseball great Yogi Berra. It basically means experiencing something that you have already experienced. In the aftermath of the 2022 midterm elections, this is an appropriate application of Berra's quote. We have indeed been in the position, not too long ago. As a matter of fact, during the 2010 midterm election cycle-- the first for Barack Obama -- the numerical result regarding congressional seats was what some may have thought would trend in this 2022 midterm cycle. No, I am not talking about 63 seats, but many felt that there would be a number between 25-35 that could have flipped. The end result, though, is still the same: 
Has the GOP Learned Anything After the Midterms? 14 replies
Posted by Imright 11/21/2022 5:07:02 AM Post Reply
The congressional midterm elections are thankfully over. Predictions of a red wave, including by yours truly, didn’t materialize. Instead, it was more of a pink trickle with the GOP flipping the House. The Senate is still up for grabs, with the best outcome for the GOP being a 50-50 split, depending on the Georgia run-off results. Red wave predictions made sense at the time, given President Biden’s unpopularity and incompetence, leading to a declining America. This includes 40-year high inflation, a recession, open borders, energy shortages, supply chain disruptions, World War III simmering in Ukraine, and a woke culture ruining the lives of children and families.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) telling people to “stop” taking ivermectin for COVID-19 was informal and just a recommendation, government lawyers argued during a recent hearing. “The cited statements were not directives. They were not mandatory. They were recommendations. They said what parties should do. They said, for example, why you should not take ivermectin to treat COVID-19. They did not say you may not do it, you must not do it. They did not say it’s prohibited or it’s unlawful. They also did not say that doctors may not prescribe ivermectin,” Isaac Belfer, one of the lawyers, told the court during the Nov. 1 hearing in federal court

Hunter Biden’s daughter, Naomi Biden, got married at the White House on Saturday. According to reports, Joe Biden is expected to pay a minimum of $300,000 out-of-pocket for his granddaughter’s wedding. No press was allowed because Joe Biden said the wedding was a “private” event. (Tweet) Naomi Biden married Peter Neal, a former Hillary Clinton campaign intern, in front of 250 guests at the White House. Joe Biden is turning 80 on Sunday so his granddaughter’s wedding celebration this weekend worked as a cover to distract from the media focusing on his old age.

Kumar appeared as a guest host on MSNBC’s "Velshi," where a panel discussed former President Trump’s effect on the Republican Party. The discussion soon focused on DeSantis as a kind of successor to "Trumpism" for his rise in popularity However, Kumar claimed that his success, even in the state of Florida, is due not to DeSantis’ record as governor, but because he "gerrymandered" the state.
