At a House Judiciary Committee hearing on the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) called out the controversial memo on school boards and parents.

Jim Jordan said: I think the chairman last fall October 21st, when the attorney general was in front of this committee we asked him What was the basis for the very first sentence in your memorandum of October 4th, 2021? So the memorandum he had sent out just two and a half weeks prior to testifying in front of us. 

The first sentence reads in recent months there's been a spike in harassment intimidation threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff we asked him What was the basis there? What investigation? What data?  What did you look at? How did you make a determination to put that as the very first sentence in your memorandum telling the FBI to set up a snitch line on parents? What was the basis for that anyone remembers his answer? 

He said, it was the letter sent from the school boards association five days earlier. The letter that talked about using the patriot act to treat parents as domestic terrorists. The letter that the school boards association has since apologized for, in fact, I got that letter here somewhere that they sent to us, where they say we regret and apologize for the letter, they've had all kinds of states leave their association. 

We had the whistleblower, the gentleman from North Carolina just brought up the whistleblower. Who sent us the communication sent to FBI agents around the country. That says we asked that your offices apply the threat tag to investigations and assessments for the very purpose that. 

The attorney general said came from that the first sentence, that he had in his memorandum came from the school board association, which apologized and took back their letter. And all this amendment says is that the threat tag doesn't use federal funds, for that threat tag if moms and dads are showing up at school board meetings and voicing their concerns about the upbringing and education of their kids.

Our concern is Why the democrats are opposed to this this seems so straightforward? I mean we shouldn't we should. The organization that prompted this whole thing started this whole thing, actually I think it may have been the other way around, it may have been actually the government going to them the Biden administration going to the school board and so she's asking them to send the letter as a pretext to do what they want to do.  

We don't know that for sure but we have seen emails that suggest that this is a simple amendment, we should just take this straightforward, should be easy, should be a unanimous voice, and the vote should be part of the bill. Jim ended his remarks with this line.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) fired at Elon Musk after she claimed her Twitter notifications were not working.  In an Instagram story posted on Wednesday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that her Twitter notifications were no longer working after she criticized Elon Musk. The criticism was over Musk's plan to charge users $8 a month to verify their accounts. Musk posted a tweet yesterday with a photo of a sweatshirt sold on the New York Democrats' website for 58 dollars. AOC fired back, saying that her workers are in a union and make a living wage, and proceeds go to, quote, "community investments" like tutoring kids. Ocasio-Cortez delighted in the fact that Musk lashed out at her, saying, quote, "We have a billionaire." That's the American dream right there.

WATCH: Biden Gaffes Again, While Speaking In Florida Rally

  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr President Biden gaffes about the "war in Iraq" causing inflation while speaking in Florida, then blames his reference to Iraq on his son Beau dying there; Beau Biden died in Walter Reed years after his service in Iraq. President Joe Biden misspoke again at a rally in South Florida on Tuesday. During his remarks, President Joe Biden accidentally said that inflation was caused by quoting the war in Iraq. The president then corrected himself and said it was Ukraine, but I didn't study was quote thinking of Iraq because that's where my son died. Biden's son Beau Biden served in Iraq from 2008 to 2009.  Biden has previously claimed that Beau died in Iraq despite the fact that he died at Walter Reed many years following his service. Biden has said he believes exposures to burn pitoxins may have contributed to the cancer that claimed beau's life. He said: “They talk about inflation… inflation is a worldwide

Trump Mocks DeSantis During Pennsylvania Rally: 'Ron DeSanctimonious'

Photo "Donald Trump" by  Dan Scavino Former US President Donald Trump mocked Ron DeSantis as "Ron DeSanctimonious" at a Latrobe rally yesterday in Pennsylvania. Watch out for his complete reaction below. Trump, while addressing his rally, said these lines: Today I have the highest poll numbers I've ever had, perhaps partly because the Democrats are so severely running our country and people want our tremendous success of no inflation, energy independence, and military victory (remember, I defeated ISIS one hundred percent). Remember Al-Baghdadi and so many other things, including crime? We had it weighed down. But we have the best poll numbers; where are they putting them up on the screen? I think you should put them up and look at them. We are winning big, big, big in the Republican Party for the nomination like nobody's ever seen before. Let's say there is Trump at 71, Ron DeSanctimonious at 10 percent, and Mike Pence at seven. Targeting forme

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continued his campaign for re-election on Wednesday, focusing on cultural and war issues. DeSantis has doubled down on his controversial stance on gender-affirming care for minors; he decried the teaching of so-called gender theory in public schools. A topic that has earned him accusations of transphobia and bigotry by many LGBTQ Americans and their allies DeSantis has celebrated his state's commitment to take doctors' medical licenses if they performed gender-firming surgeries on minors as well. The issue has become a hot topic among Republican politicians, who believe it can help them win votes among parents wary of social change. This sentence is currently leading his Democratic challenger Charlie Crist by double digits. DeSantis mentioned in his speech that:
