According to the release, the investigative panel will have jurisdiction to determine whether Santos "may have engaged in unlawful activity with respect to his 2022 congressional campaign; failed to properly disclose required

Focus, people. If an almost braindead person can serve in the Senate; this Congresscritters' ouster can wait until the next election. We have to put up with usurper joe. Do a poll anyway. How many other critters have lied about their resumes and biographies? We had a half white/half African in the WH for eight years who lied about the same things. We were told we couldn't focus on who he really is and we should move on. So, back atcha.

Whatever this guy did so what? I don't think he should have lied. Lies catch up to most people, and it's up to his district not to reelect him. Maybe he'll be wonderful and they will want to keep him? Like others have said, why now? Santos' fairy tales compared to President Joseph R. Von Munchausen's are very tiny potatoes. He tells his tall tales daily. How about the "Honorable" Dick "Stolen Valor" Blumenthal? That's one who should be investigated up his wazoo.

What about those on the receiving end of the Ukranian "Biz Bag Bucks?" What about them? What about all of the insider trading? What about the slush funds from lobbying "firms?" What about the January 6th HOAX? What about it all? What about Dominion and Smartmatic? What about Schiff, Liz, and the rest of the prevaricating pinheads who tried to frame Donald Trump?

I clicked LIKE on every comment. Ethics Committee - do your job and go after the liars, cheats and other nutjobs we have been reading about for years. I would like to add DiFi's use of a spy as a driver for years. Add that to your list of things to check on. I could do others but they may have already been covered. Leave Santos alone, let his district take care of him.

Texas’ woke capital, Austin, is in the midst of a policing crisis with over 300 vacancies and cops quitting because they feel disrespected, multiple sources tell The Post. “We’re right there with Portland and Seattle and San Francisco as being one of those places where if you’re at all conservative or in law enforcement, it’s become a hostile place,” Lt. Brian Moon, who retired last month, told The Post of the city he protected for 23 years. Another 77 officers are expected to retire before the end of March — on top of 264 existing vacancies, according to the Austin Police Association. Austin Police Department’s staffing is so bad,l

A bill in California's state assembly takes aim at paper receipts and if passed, would ban businesses from handing customers receipts unless they specifically ask for it. In the reintroduced "Skip the Slip" bill, businesses would be charged up to $300 if they continue to pass out paper receipts. Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, introduced Assembly Bill 1347, and shared that his bill is an easy way to reduce paper waste in the state while addressing consumers’ frustrations with excessively long receipts. "When we get coffee to-go or a pack of gum, most of us don’t want or need a physical receipt. It’s time we provide customers with the option

Walgreens clarified Thursday that it is not distributing abortion pills anywhere, including in states where they remain legal. The nation’s second-largest pharmacy explained to Politico that it made this decision out of an abundance of caution amid a shifting policy landscape post Roe. However, Walgreens does intend to seek certification from the Food and Drug Administration to distribute abortion pills in certain states, but it declined to say which. The move follows two dozen Republican attorneys general writing to Walgreens in February warning it not to distribute what has become the most popular abortion method.

Amazon has paused construction on its second headquarters near Washington DC, as the internet retail giant slashes costs and makes its largest ever job cuts. The indefinite pause affects the second phase of construction on the massive complex, known as HQ2, that Amazon is constructing in Arlington, Virginia, the company said Friday. The first phase of the project, two office towers known as Metropolitan Park, is due for completion in June, and will be able to house some 14,000 workers. The delay impacts a larger development planned across the street, called PenPlace, consisting of three 22-story office towers and a 350-foot architectural showpiece known as the Helix.

WALTERBORO, S.C.   — South Carolina attorney Alex Murdaugh was sentenced to life in prison without parole Friday, a day after he was convicted of murder in the shooting deaths of his wife and son. Judge Clifton Newman asked Murdaugh if he had anything he wanted to say before sentencing him to two consecutive life terms, and the one-prominent lawyer maintained his innocence. “As I tell you again, I respect this court. But I am innocent. I would never under any circumstances hurt my wife Maggie and I would never under any circumstances hurt my son Paul Paul,” Murdaugh responded.

Rep. Thomas Massie was so eager for Donald Trump’s endorsement in a contested primary three years ago that he ran TV ads targeted at the then-president in Florida to win his support. Today, Massie is all but shunning Trump and his comeback campaign. In fact, the Kentucky Republican attended a retreat last weekend for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. “Ron DeSantis is the best governor there ever was,” he said when asked if he planned to endorse in the 2024 presidential primary. The Kentucky Republican is far from the only one-time Trump ally who’s staying away from the former president, despite his lead in every major poll so far.

After a number of Trump-endorsed Republicans lost key elections in the midterms, the many wings of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire began to urge the party to move past the former president. Now that dynamic may be escalating in a way that could hurt his shot at the GOP nomination in 2024.

PALM BEACH, FL. – EXCLUSIVE - Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida is taking aim at some fellow Republicans who he argues are acting like "potted plants" in the political and culture wars battle against the mainstream media and the Left. And DeSantis, speaking Thursday evening to some of the top donors in the GOP, spotlighted his numerous conservative policy achievements the past four years in his war against "woke ideology" and touted that he’s "transformed" Florida from a top general election battleground "into the nation’s leading red state." The popular conservative governor was the kickoff speaker at a three-day "economic retreat" organized and hosted by the politically active fiscal conservative group

The mayor of College Park, Maryland, Patrick Wojahn, was arrested Thursday on 56 child pornography possession and distribution charges. The 47-year gay Democrat faces 40 counts of possession of exploitative child material and 16 counts of distribution of exploitative child material, a press release from the Prince George’s County Police Department (PGPD) said. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children first alerted the department that a social media account operating within the county was distributing “suspected child pornography” on February 17, according to the PGPD. Through an investigation, authorities determined that the account belonged to the sitting mayor. On February 28, the PGPD

Disney is guilty of many things, but chief among them is its inability to learn from its mistakes. In fact, it seems more adamant about buckling down on them. Among these mistakes are its inability to make a movie without having it check certain social justice boxes. Race swaps, feminist messaging, and woke overtones are a plague within every modern Disney movie and television show. These political inclusions drag down box office numbers and viewership levels by leaps and bounds, and yet the House of Mouse can’t stop mainlining radical leftist politics into its system. The other thing it can’t stop doing is attacking its would-be customers and blaming people’s dislike

This is news to almost everyone. I’m guessing the ardent left-wingers in the White House took off their socialist shades for a second or two to take a steely-eyed glance at the 2024 election landscape and realized some face-saving was in order. Perhaps they simply ran the numbers and realized math and prevailing public opinion weren’t in their favor. Initially, 31 Congressional Democrats crossed the aisle to vote with Republicans on the House bill, so it clearly had asome bi-partisan appeal from the get-go. Yet, Senate Democrats signaled their opposition and Biden had said he opposed rescinding it (not quite threatened a veto flat-out)

Innocent Americans got swept up in shoddy, US government-funded research aimed at getting Twitter users banned for allegedly spreading “foreign” disinformation, the latest “Twitter Files” report revealed Thursday. The flawed work was the product of the “Global Engagement Center,” which was created in 2017 by the State Department but worked with the FBI, CIA, US Strategic Command and other agencies, independent journalist Matt Taibbi wrote in the 17th installment of the series. The Twitter users who were flagged reportedly included Cuban immigrant Marysel Urbanik, who tweets from the “JerseyGirl Conservative” account. “This is un-American,” Urbanik told Taibbi. “They do this in places that don’t believe in free speech.”

A stunning report in Wednesday’s Washington Post details the tensions between FBI agents and Justice Department attorneys over the August raid of former President Donald Trump’s Florida home, Mar-a-Lago. FBI officials were leery of the plan, and pleaded for a more measured approach, while DOJ prosecutors were hell-bent on a surprise incursion to search for classified documents: Prosecutors argued that new evidence suggested Trump was knowingly concealing secret documents at his Palm Beach, Fla., home and urged the FBI to conduct a surprise raid at the property. But two senior FBI officials who would be in charge of leading the search resisted the plan as too combative

Just kidding, it was MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart and Doug Emhoff, in a one-on-one interview where the eunuchs discussed “toxic masculinity” — something about which Emhoff has thought “a lot”. (Snip) First of all, let’s just be clear on one thing, because this is an area where conservatives forfeit ground to leftist Newspeak. “Gender” isn’t a word that applies to the human race, rather it is a word that applies to language — words, not people, are “gendered.” The left is right though on one thing: “gender” is a social construct, albeit one fabricated by pseudo-academic leftists.

When they do, it will mark a significant step in the effort to curb health-damaging and planet-warming emissions from buildings. The California Air Resources Board adopted plans last year to phase out sales of gas water heaters and furnaces statewide by 2030 but isn't going to consider setting rules to do so until 2025.
