Why Congress Can’t Refuse to Seat Santos

Original Article

Posted By: Garnet, 1/2/2023 12:40:28 AM

The Democrats and the Fourth Estate have finally found, in congressman-elect George Santos (R-N.Y.), a Republican who is genuinely guilty of lying to the voters. Having thus discovered themselves — for once — in possession of the moral high ground, they have made the welkin ring with cries of outrage and calls for his resignation. However, if he ignores those calls, it may be difficult to stop him from being seated in the House and even harder to expel him once he takes office.

I don't see it to be a big deal. Democrats have been doing this for YEARS. Once the democrats come clean and stop lying then I would say we can do the same. Bottomline, we have to do as the Romans (democrats) do. There's nothing here, let's move on.

BOTH sides lie. They are politicians; that's what they do. The difference is that the media can be counted on to smooth over the Dems' lies while they will indignantly demand that Pubbie fabricators fess up and step down immediately. Oh. And there's one other thing: The Pubbies will almost always cave, while the Dems never will.

He got elected as a Republican in a heavily democrat district because he said he was a homosexual. Nothing else mattered to the people who voted for him.. They thought he was Stunning! and Brave! and Stunning and Brave! They got what they wanted, now let them keep him. Remember, "democracy" is the system where people get what they vote for, and get it good and hard!

It's hilarious to me that, for decades, congressmen have been lying about NOT being homosexuals. Now that hooking up the same plumbing fittings is in style, they make sure to put it on their resume like it's a career enhancer.

Saul Alinsky's fourth rule for radicals is, "Make your opponent live up to their own set of rules." For dems, this is the least affective rule because they're such opportune liars. In fact, demanding Santos's resignation makes the rest of us remember Warren, Blumenthal, both Clintons, Anthony Weiner, Biden, Ted Kennedy, Omar, and many more. IMO, Santos is fighting fire with fire. Let his voters decide in November 2024.

The Pubs should use this to their own advantage. Start with the long list of demoncrats, include their lies, crimes, and then clean the House, if you will. There should be chaos in Washington. Nothing should continue to function until things get under control. Every critter and their staff should be concerned about their futures. They have us on edge; they should be the ones feeling unrelenting pressure. Is there enough honesty and integrity among the 500+ "lawmakers" to clean things up? I'm not encouraged, and I'm convinced that dragging is the only way to go.

There’s a nationwide shortage of Tylenol and other common pain medications. Meanwhile, there’s plenty of Fentanyl coming in through America’s porous southern border for anyone who wants to get high — or dead.CBS News reported Thursday on our “national shortage” of children’s Tylenol and other medicines have “retailers like CVS, Target and Walgreens” placing strict limits on how much medicine people can buy. Even though companies like Johnson & Johnson are producing new meds “around the clock,” shortages could nevertheless last “into early next year.” One reason for the shortages is a spike in demand caused by the annual flu season, COVID-19, and unusually high RSV and

A federal judge in Florida has refused to throw out criminal charges against Andrew Gillum, disagreeing with the former Democratic gubernatorial nominee’s assertions that he was the victim of selective prosecution because he was a Black candidate for governor. Gillum and a colleague were indicted earlier this year on federal charges including conspiracy, wire fraud and making false statements to FBI agents. Prosecutors said Gillum funneled donations through third parties back to himself for personal use. According to prosecutors, Gillum met with undercover FBI agents posing as developers while he was mayor of Tallahassee and during his campaign for governor. His associates sought donations from the agents, and suggested ways to

It should be obvious to the meanest intelligence that, to accomplish anything useful with such a narrow majority, the House Republican Conference has to close ranks and prepare for a war with a radicalized Democratic minority that will continue its ongoing effort to undermine the will of the voters.

Of the several unwelcome revelations in the past six years, the most politically significant is that liberalism as a political philosophy is dead. Oh, there may still be some individuals who identify with it, but for the most part they are old, retired, or cowed into silence by the howling mobs of progressives, the “woke,” and the identitarian left. And how do we know this? We know it by the collapse of colleges and universities as places of open debate and inquiry.

Cuomo, a Democrat, and Conway, a Republican, were photographed leaving the Italian restaurant on 61st Street after 10 p.m. The former gov did not comment on the relevance of the dinner as he got into his car. He waved to Conway as they parted ways. The unlikely pair had been at the center of political power just two years ago.

House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy signaled he was done negotiating with his detractors in an effort to win the speakership during a tense closed-door meeting on Tuesday morning, according to a new report.

As many as 20 House Republicans may oppose McCarthy’s bid, according to reports. The California Republican will need 218 votes if every current member votes for a candidate by name — a difficult task with the party’s razor-thin majority in the House.

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will become the longest serving party leader in Senate history on Tuesday. McConnell, 80, will remain the Republican minority leader in the 118th Congress and thus eclipse the late Sen. Mike Mansfield’s time as Democrat leader from 1961 to 1977. McConnell overcame ten Republican “no” votes in November to remain minority leader. The votes against McConnell marked the first time McConnell had received a “no” vote as leader, a sign the GOP has begun to turn against his establishment agenda. “I don’t own this job,” McConnell claimed after the vote. “Anybody who wants to run for it can feel free to do so.”

Beijing‘s rapid buildup of nuclear forces has been assisted by American nuclear and missile technology obtained by Chinese spies and through U.S. space and nuclear cooperation in the 1990s, according to a review of Chinese technology records and internal U.S. government documents. The Pentagon disclosed last month that China‘s warhead stockpile will reach at least 1,500 strategic nuclear warheads by 2035, up from 200 just a few years ago and 400 warheads today. Adm. Charles Richard, until Dec. 9 the commander of the U.S. nuclear forces, further sounded the alarm on the Chinese nuclear expansion last month when he formally notified Congress that the size

The new judges are part of a historic transformation of the federal bench in terms of race, gender, ethnicity and experience, including in federal courtrooms in Chicago. Until Biden, most federal judges were white males, with the door closed to almost all other lawyers.(Snip) Looking ahead, the issue will be filling vacancies from states with GOP senators who may want to block Biden’s lifetime appointments.
