creating challenges for McCarthy

The dynamics of what has fueled recent gridlock on Capitol Hill can be boiled down to numbers. While Democrats retain a slight majority in the Senate, even with the recent passing of Dianne Feinstein of California, House Republicans must contend with a razor-thin 221-213 majority — putting the GOP conference in a precarious position as any major bloc within the party can help pass or scuttle critical pieces of legislation. The House is a sharply partisan body, as opposed to the more deliberative upper chamber, which has a 60-vote threshold to pass most major bills. So House Speaker Kevin McCarthy of California faced a critical challenge on Saturday as he pushed through
House GOP members seek to expel Gaetz
amid renewed threat to vacate House Speaker McCarthy

House GOP members are preparing a motion to expel Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., amid his renewed threat to pursue a motion to vacate House Speaker Kevin McCarthy. The House Republican members will seek to expel Gaetz if the ethics committee report comes back with findings of guilt, Fox News has learned. One member told Fox News the report is mostly written but does not know what it contains. Yet following threats to vacate McCarthy, the member said of Gaetz, "No one can stand him at this point. A smart guy without morals."
A green card processing change means US

For more than two hours on a Sunday afternoon, the Rev. Gustavo Castillo led the Pentecostal congregation he’s been growing in this Minneapolis suburb through prayer, Scriptures, rousing music and sometimes tearful testimonials. But it all may end soon. A sudden procedural change in how the federal government processes green cards for foreign-born religious workers, together with historic highs in numbers of illegal border crossers, means that thousands of clergy like him are losing the ability to remain in this country. “We were right on the edge of becoming permanent residents, and boom, this changed,” Colombia-born Castillo said as his wife rocked their 7-month-old boy, a U.S. citizen by birth.
The Ukrainian Gordian Knot replies

Most Americans understandably favor the Ukrainian resistance against Russian President Vladimir Putin's naked 2022 aggression. Yet for Ukraine to break the current deadlock -- our generation's Verdun with perhaps 600,000 combined casualties so far -- and "win" the war, it apparently must have the military wherewithal to hit targets inside Russia. Such strategically logical attacks might nevertheless provoke a wounded and unpredictable Russia finally to carry out its boilerplate and ignored existential threats
Victor Davis Hanson: Republicans Need
To Unite Around A Candidate And Have A
Unity Party

Victor Davis Hanson said Wednesday on FNC's "The Ingraham Angle" that Republicans need to unite behind former President Trump: VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: I think if this debate degenerates into a melodrama or psycho-drama between Mike Pence and Ramaswamy and Chris Christie and you don't have the leading candidates, the leading opposition to Trump, it will be a futile effort. These candidates have to show solidarity with a MAGA agenda and they have to distinguish themselves, obviously, as candidates from Trump. And there is not a lot of ways to do it except the only thing I can think of is they have to make the argument
Secretive Dem donor network moves to aid
Biden by kneecapping 2024 third-party efforts

A secretive network of the nation's wealthiest Democrat donors has moved to undercut attempts to get a third-party presidential challenger on the 2024 ballot in an effort to aid President Biden. The Democracy Alliance, the left's premiere big-money donor club, recently held private discussions with left-wing organizations to prevent likely donors from contributing money to No Labels, a bi-partisan organization pushing for an independent presidential candidate, Politico reported.
Democrat San Francisco mayor announces
plan to require drug testing, treatment
to receive homeless services

Democratic San Francisco Mayor London Breed on Tuesday unveiled a plan to require anyone receiving welfare to comply with mandatory drug testing and treatment programs amid growing pressure to get ahold of the city’s homeless and fentanyl crises — the same day a new primary challenger in next year's election entered the race. Announcing the proposal with Supervisor Matt Dorsey, a recovering addict and former spokesperson for the police department, Breed said the new initiative would require individuals with substance use disorders who want to access county-funded cash assistance to be enrolled in treatment and services.
Wednesday’s GOP Debate, Which Is Being
Skipped by President Trump, Could Be Decisive
Event of the Party’s 2024 Nomination Process
Posted by Moritz55 9/27/2023 12:36:40 PM Post Reply
Wednesday’s debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library may be the most important debate of the 2023 Republican presidential nomination process. It is to the candidates’ advantage that President Trump will be in Michigan addressing auto industry employees amid the United Auto Workers strike. His absence will create a space in which they can talk about the solutions America needs. If Mr. Trump were there, everyone else would be overshadowed — and all news coverage would obsess over him and various reactions to him. As we saw in the first debate, when given a chance to talk about issues and ideas, the candidates are competent and interesting.

He led Jesus’ donkey into Jerusalem. He freed Nelson Mandela from prison on Robben Island. He carried Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lewis across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama. And he gently assisted George Floyd in his final day of “hooping” before the Great Black Man was handed over to authorities to be crucified and martyred for all of time. So it is only fitting that President Biden would put politics aside and bravely venture out to Michigan this week to join a picket line of striking autoworkers. Sacrifice. Solidarity. Selflessness.
Can conservatives still win replies
Posted by Moritz55 9/24/2023 4:05:46 PM Post Reply
Conservatives enjoy popular support on the vast majority of current issues. But that does not necessarily translate into winning presidential elections, which is of course the only sure way of enacting conservative political agendas. Yet victory is possible for conservatives, as long as they learn from the past. Take the potpourri of current controversies over illegal immigration, rising crime, fossil-fuel independence, the economy in general, and an array of cultural concerns—from the indoctrination of the dogma of diversity, equity, and inclusion to the fact of transgendered men participating in women’s sports. In these hot-button-issue debates, the conservative side usually wins the support of the American people, at least in opinion polls.
House Republicans are turning potential
glory days into a ‘clown show’ with
government shutdown looming

The president is politically weak and mentally feeble. The country hungers for a change and even most Democrats are ready to abandon Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. In the Senate, Dems hold a one-vote margin, but one member has just been indicted on explosive federal charges and another shows serious symptoms of dementia. A third insists on wearing shorts and sweatshirts on the Senate floor, so to keep him happy and present, the majority leader eliminated the dress code. Meanwhile, many urban areas were besieged by crime and overrun with tent cities before Biden’s open-border policy let in millions of unvetted, illegal crossers needing food, shelter and health care.
Dallas Dem Party blasts 'self centered'
mayor's 'values' for switching to GOP:
'Insult to the electorate'
Posted by Moritz55 9/23/2023 2:12:55 PM Post Reply
Texas Democrats are slamming Dallas, Texas, Mayor Eric Johnson after he announced on Friday that he will officially leave the party and become a Republican. "I think this today's announcement is nothing short of an insult to the electorate, specifically here in Dallas County and the city of Dallas," Kardal Coleman, chair of the Dallas County Democratic Party, told Fox News Digital on Friday. "Voters elected Mayor Johnson and were told that they were going to get a certain set of values, which he failed to deliver on. So now he's switching up his political party. This is not just strictly about partisanship. I think this is a self-centered agenda
