House Financial Services Republicans Deny
‘Woke’ Agenda After Backlash for ‘Diversity
and Inclusion’ Message

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 1/21/2023 10:13:16 AM

The Republican-controlled House Financial Services Committee is taking heat for listing “diversity and inclusion” in the finance and housing industries as part of its agenda, but Republicans on the committee are standing by the agenda and rejecting any notion of it being “woke.” Committee chairman Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) said in a statement provided to Breitbart News when asked about the diversity language that the committee plans to prioritize “kitchen table issues.” McHenry indicated that would be a contrast to the focus of Democrats, who he said had spent the last two Congresses pressuring companies until they “parroted their woke social agenda.”

It is a woke agenda. Why is an agenda necessary? Go back to investors building properties, and customers paying for them.

Too many Republicans have bought into the leftist agenda, and they are so deep into it they no longer even realize the evil hidden within it. To profess diversity and inclusion they are accepting the politics of identity, and that ends up with quotas and the rejection of merit. Better representatives have to be found than this.

As always Republicans fail to acknowledge that words matter. Diversity and Inclusion are big turn offs for most Americans, including a lot of Democrats. I’m disappointed that Representative Donalds is going along with keeping decisive leftist terminology that should be trashed. Why cannot Republicans speak clearly and accurately? All Democrat jargon should be removed.

Hate to give the Democrats credit, but at least they telegraph their intentions. Most of the time. Not so with the Republicans. They hide their intentions, and their supporters only discover those intentions when they discover a knife in their back.

I'm not surprised but VERY disappointed. Here go the republicans once again, helping the socialist agenda even just a little bit. Our country is on the verge of collapse because for decades republicans have ONLY slowed down the socialist juggernaut driven by depraved democrats. Republicans do this EVERY SINGLE TIME. And each time they do, our constitutional republic, our country, our history, our traditions, get weaker and weaker. I'm so disappointed in Donalds who should know better. Using socialist's language gives credence to, and affirmation and agreement with, their sick and dangerous cause. This is not good. We truly are doomed even when there appears to be just a modicum of hope for our agenda. Except for President Donald J. Trump, we can trust NO REPUBLICANS, NONE.

That language sadly does not surprise me. What would have gladly surprised me is the use of language indicating that they were going to follow the paths of our Founders that made America great in the first place, and used language prayerfully honoring & seeking the blessings of Almighty God to guide them and help them to do what is best for America’s future. But, public language & actions like those fell out of favor long ago In Washington D.C. Other gods are honored now.

We have given enough time to diversity and now we need to stress excellence. Our culture is being threatened to bow down to people who have had two generations to take advantage of education and employment. many have done very well because they are not lazy. We are competing on a global level and you can bet that the Red Chinese are not sitting around simpering about giving everyone a chance. Enough already.

If diversity and inclusion simply meant casting a wide net to recruit similarly qualified students, employees, potential political candidates, etc., that would be one thing. By adding the word “equity,” however, mandates that less qualified applicants be given preference on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identification, or other attributes unrelated to the skills and abilities needed for the position. Harvard could easily do this by trading faculties with Podunk City College. Would it?

A prominent Democratic Senator has slammed Joe Biden's handling of classified documents days after files were found at the current head of state's home in Delaware, calling his handling of sensitive materials 'unacceptable.' Appearing for an interview Sunday, Illinois Senator Dick Durbin chided the president for his decisions - labeling them careless, and likening them to the actions of the president's embattled predecessor, Donald Trump. The documents recovered Saturday from Biden's Wilmington residence range from his three-decade tenure in the Senate and his time as vice president, and reportedly brings the total number of classified files found to between 25 and 30.

I regret to inform you that Kamala Harris is doing Kamala Harris things again. The comically uncharismatic vice president appeared in Florida over the weekend to hold a pro-abortion rally. Harris originally wanted to do the event at the Florida State Capitol building but her request was rejected, likely with some input from Gov. Ron DeSantis. So why does the second most powerful person in the country need to go to the Sunshine State to stump for abortion? I’m glad you asked, and we’ll get to that, but first, let’s just marvel at the raw political talent that Harris possesses. During her fiery speech, she decided to channel Greta Thunberg,

President Joe Biden’s Energy Department quietly published a congressionally mandated report in December showing the president revoking the Keystone XL Pipeline federal permits cost thousands of jobs and billions of dollars. The report — Keystone XL Extension Permit Revocation: Energy Costs and Job Impacts — brought attention to the positive economic benefits the Keystone XL Pipeline could have had if Biden did not revoke the federal permits for it hours after being sworn into office. The cancellation received widespread criticism at the time. Energy’s report indicated the Keystone XL project would have created between 16,149 and 59,468 jobs annually for a two-year period, which is up from a 2014 report

With its first broadcast of the year, NBC late-night comedy show Saturday Night Live barely mentioned Joe Biden’s growing classified document scandal, instead giving him airtime for a silly cameo and going all-in to ridicule freshman Rep. George Santos (R-NY). SNL has not had a new show since Dec. 17 and as it finally came back this weekend with its first new episode of the year, the cast decided that Biden’s ever-widening document scandal was far less interesting than the case of Santos, who won election last year before news broke that he has fabricated and exaggerated major portions of his personal biography. In fact, not only did the show practically ignore Biden’s

While many in the media are eager to point out that Biden’s classified document scandal isn’t as bad in some ways as Trump’s classified document scandal, some realists have admitted that they’re similar enough that there’s probably not a lot to be gained here. And one reason that’s true is that while Biden’s people did quickly call the National Archives to, in effect, turn themselves in once the documents were found, they sat on the findings as far as the public was concerned. If you’ve watched any of the White House press briefings this week then you already know this has

As RedState reported, the slow news cycle was blown up on Saturday after it was announced that a DOJ search of Joe Biden’s home had found six more classified documents. That comes after the White House had asserted that the search had been completed. Biden’s lawyers immediately tried to get out in front of the revelation, releasing a statement claiming cooperation with the DOJ. But while the administration continues to talk about transparency, one bombshell detail from the search has left the president’s lies fully exposed. Namely, the fact that documents were found that were taken during Biden’s years in the Senate.
