Lauren Boebert (R-CO) declares victory in her Congressional race and pledges a more tempered approach to governing. Lauren said: I am happy to report that all the counties in Colorado's Third District have completed their recounts. We've won this election as expected, and I'm headed back to represent you in Washington, DC. I can't thank you enough for all of your support. I'm so thrilled that the Republicans will now hold the gavel in the people's house, and I'm thrilled to be representing you in that majority. Since the day I announced I was running for Congress, this has been about doing everything I can to help get our country back on track. and put an end to the obstinate march toward socialism.  It's our responsibility now, and mine personally, to take the opportunity you've entrusted me with and make you proud, to lead with strength and grac

KJP Asked: Was Anyone In Biden Admin. In Twitter Content Moderation?

  White House Press Briefing Karine Jean-Pierre (KJP) is asked about the Biden Administration's possible involvement in Twitter content moderation decisions. A reporter asked the White House press secretary : "On Twitter, Elon Musk this week fired the former FBI general counsel Jim Baker, who was serving as a top Twitter lawyer." Musk alleges that he may have been involved in countermanding his attempts at transparency. And I was wondering if anyone in the Biden Administration was in touch with Baker recently, either regarding moderation decisions that critics called political censorship or regarding his transparency efforts. KJP replied : It's up to private companies to make these types of decisions; we were not involved. I can say that we were not involved, and as I've said several times this week already, we've talked and had this conversation many times in this briefing room. Just a few days ago, it was up to these companies to make their own decisions ab

‘We Do Not See A Change In Our Democratic Majority’: White House On Kyrsten Sinema Leaving Party

  White House Press Briefing  Karine Jean-Pierre is asked Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) leaving the Democratic Party. Here is the part of their conversation from the White House, you can watch the video shown below this article: Reporter : Just two days ago, you said that Warnock's win gave you a little bit more breathing room and a little bit more ability to deliver for the American people. Does Cinema's decision to leave the party take away some of that freaking room? Karine : As you all know, I said that we understand Senator Cinema's decision to register as an independent, but the way that we see it, it does not change the majority or the complexion of what the Democratic majority is going to look like in the Senate. Reporter : Does it impact you? I mean, you're saying that this decision won't change at all how you work with her, or you've said that you expect that, or you have every reason to expect that you will continue to work successfully with Cinema.

Matt Gaetz Praises Donald Trump For Welcoming Black And Jewish Americans To His Private Clubs

  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr At today's House Judiciary Committee hearing, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) praised former President Donald J. Trump for allowing Black and Jewish Americans to join his private clubs when that was not the norm. Matt Gaetz in his house floor speech said:  Mr. Chairman, let me begin by saying that it used to be the case on Palm Beach Island that no blacks or Jews were even allowed to be members or invited as members at the private clubs, and it was actually Donald Trump before he was in politics who made that, I believe, very important change so that we weren't treating people differently based on their immutable traits. I also want to say something on the subject of this hearing when it comes to Supreme Court ethics and guardrails. I am supportive of bipartisan efforts to have some sort of ethics construct on the court. I don't understand why Congress is subject to ethics rules and the executive is subject to ethics rules, bu

‘You Gotta Be Kidding Me’: Jim Jordan Slams Dem In Fiery House Floor Remarks

  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr Representative Angie Craig of Minnesota blasted the Supreme Court on the House floor Thursday. The Democrats talked about marrying her wife and raising their family together, as well as fighting for legal protections for same-sex marriages across the country. She condemned the conservative wing of the court and legislators in opposition to the Respect for Marriage Act for being, quote, "out of step with the American people." Representative Jim Jordan responded by calling Democrats out of step for supporting France's rights legislation on abortions. You can watch the video clip shown below this article: Ms. Angie Craig said : Mr. Speaker, my wife Cheryl and I have married 14 years ago when one of the first states in our country allowed us to do so. It took years and a Supreme Court ruling to acknowledge and grant the legal protections that come with marriage across this great land. In the ensuing years, we raised our

Rick Scott Points Finger At Pelosi Over Failure To Fund Government

  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr At a GOP press briefing on Wednesday, Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) called for a rejection of an omnibus government spending bill and instead pass a continuing resolution to fund the government after which the new Congress will work on the budget. Sen. Rick Scott said: What we want to have to happen is make sure that our military men and women will not continue to be discharged because of religious reasons or health reasons because they don't want to take the vaccine. That's an unbelievable win for military men and women. Remember, the military is about military members, and we need to have all the equipment we need to have all these things, but without the men and women in the military, we can't get this done. We still have to focus on the people that have been discharged; they need to be reinstated with back pay. These people have been injured, and this clearly doesn't make sense. It doesn't make sense for the

'Did Hunter Biden Have Any Qualification... Other Than The Fact That His Daddy Was The Sitting VP?'

  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr At a Tuesday Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, Senator Ted Cruz grilled State Department official George Ken about alleged corruption by President Biden and his son Hunter. Questioning Ken over his past concerns about Hunter Biden, serving on the board of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma. Cruz pressed on whether or not there were ethical violations by the Bidens. Cruz has long been a fierce critic of the president's son. Charging his actions while his father was vice president included corruption and influence peddling. Democrats and the president himself have defended Hunter Biden, claiming GOP accusations are politically motivated. The Republicans have promised to make Hunter Biden's business dealings and whether his father profited from them central to their investigations in the next Congress. Senator Cruz said: Mr. Kent, you have been outspoken throughout your career speaking against corruption, and I w
