Kayleigh McEnany Opens Press Conference With Video Loop Of Democrats Breaking Their Own Lockdown Rules

Published

on

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany lambasted Democrats for “hypocrisy” on their coronavirus lockdown measures during a Wednesday press conference, playing footage of prominent Democrats violating social distancing on a loop.

McEnany also praised the U.S. Supreme Court for deciding in favor of religious groups in New York who sued the state over its limits on attendance at religious services. Numerous prominent Democrats have been seen flaunting their own lockdown measures across the country, including California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and many more.

If you can loot businesses, burn down buildings, engage in protests, you can also go to a Christmas party,” she said, according to PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor.

McEnany also addressed whether Trump plans to skip the inauguration ceremony for President-elect Joe Biden, a possibility the president has been vague on.

I’ll leave that to the president to make his announcement,” McEnany said,

Trump has also threatened in recent days to veto the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) if it does not first include langauge abolishing Section 230 and second, not include language renaming military bases currently named after Confederate figures. McEnany said Trump’s threat is “serious,” clarified that Trump hasn’t indicated whether he would still veto a bill with just one of those demands.

Bernie Sanders Predicts Democrat Party Could Be Wiped Out In 2022 Midterm Elections

Published

on

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent lawmaker who caucuses with Democrats, warned the Democratic Party this week what will happen if Democrats do not improve American lives now that they control the White House, House, and have effective control over the Senate.

Sanders predicted the Democratic Party will be “wiped out” in the 2022 midterm elections if they squander their opportunity to improve American lives.

“Given all that we face, now is not the time to think small. It is time to think big, very big,” Sanders said on Thursday, according to McClatchy reporter Francesca Chambers.

“With Joe Biden as president and Democrats controlling the House and Senate for the first time since 2010, we will be judged on what we deliver for the American people in their time of need. The people want action, not excuses,” Sanders explained.

“And let me be very clear. I have zero doubt that unless we significantly improve the lives of the American people this year, Democrats will get wiped out in the 2022 midterm elections,” Sanders predicted. “That is what happened when Democrats had the House, the Senate and the presidency under Bill Clinton in 1994 and that is what happened under Barack Obama in 2010.”

“Politicians and media focus a great deal on drama, personality and conflict,” Sanders added. “That’s how they define politics. That is not my view. Politics is nothing more complicated than delivering policy that positively impacts the lives of working families.

Of course, Sanders’ vision of what policies are beneficial significantly diverge from the majority of Americans. Sanders is a self-declared “democratic-socialist,” who advocates for European-style socialism.

Indeed, Sanders said this week that he would use his power in the Senate to implement as much of his big government agenda as possible while Democrats control Congress.

Sanders wrote in an essay for CNN:

The Senate’s 60-vote threshold to pass major legislation has become an excuse for inaction. But let’s be clear: We have the tools to overcome these procedural hurdles. As incoming Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, I will use a process known as budget reconciliation that will allow us to pass comprehensive legislation with only 51 votes

Democrats have a poor history of leveraging control in Washington.

In fact, the last two times that Democrats had control of the White House and Congress — after Bill Clinton’s election in 1992 and Barack Obama’s election in 2008 — Democrats gave up control in the next national election

The 1994 midterm elections were particularly bad for Democrats; they lost control of the Senate, House, a net loss of 10 governorships, and numerous state legislatures. The 2010 midterm elections were equally as bad — coming amid the Tea Party movement — though Democrats managed to retain control of the Senate until the 2014 midterm elections.

Schumer: Impeachment Trial Will Begin Week Of February 8

Published

on

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced Friday that former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial will begin the week of February 8th.

“Both the House managers and the defense will have a period of time to draft their legal briefs just as they did in previous trials. …Once the briefs are drafted, the presentation by the parties will commence the week of February 8,” Schumer said in a Senate floor speech.

The development comes after Pelosi announced that the House will send its single article of impeachment to the upper chamber on Monday.

The Hill reports:

Under the agreement between Schumer and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), the article will be read at 7 p.m. on Monday. Senators will be sworn in Tuesday and a summons will be issued to Trump. Trump’s response to the article and House’s pre-trial brief will be due by Feb. 2, and Trump’s pre-trial brief will be due six days later. The earliest the trial could start is Feb. 9, when the House’s pre-trial rebuttal is also due.

In a statement, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell ‘s (R-KY) office expressed satisfaction regarding trial timeline.

“Leader McConnell is glad that Leader Schumer agreed to Republicans’ request for additional time during the pre-trial phase. Especially given the fast and minimal process in the House, Republicans set out to ensure the Senate’s next steps will respect former President Trump’s rights and due process, the institution of the Senate, and the office of the presidency,” McConnell spox Doug Andres said.

Last week, McConnell accused Trump of stoking the recent riot at the U.S. Capitol, in which five people died, including a police officer. “The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people, and they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding … which they did not like,” stated the Kentucky Republican. “But we pressed on. We stood together and said an angry mob would not get veto power over the rule of law in our nation.”

McConnell has yet to decide on whether he will vote to convict Trump in the upcoming trial, while some reports suggest that he may have trouble holding on to his long-held leadership post if he votes against the former president.

“If he does, I don’t know if he can stay as leader,” one unnamed senior Republican senator said, reported CNN. The lawmaker told the news outlet that “several of his colleagues held similar views and asked not to be named discussing sensitive internal politics.”

Pro-Trump Senators Go To Battle With Mitch McConnell

Published

on

Finally, the GOP has grown a spine and is standing up to the recently radicalized Mitch McConnell.

According to reports, there are several Senate Republicans who are Mitch that if he presses on in convicted Trump bin this impeachment trial, then they will no longer support him as leader.

Looks like the shoe is on the other foot Mitch!

From Breitbart

Senate Republicans are reportedly firing warning shots ahead of the looming impeachment trial for former President Trump, suggesting that they will no longer be able to support Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as leader if he votes to convict the former president.

McConnell has yet to determine how he will vote in the upcoming Senate impeachment trial, stating in a letter earlier this month that he intends to “listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate.” His refusal to reveal his leanings and recent determination that Trump and “other powerful people” essentially “provoked” the January 6 mob have appeared to cause a bit of unease among Senate Republicans.

“If he does, I don’t know if he can stay as leader,” one unnamed senior GOP senator said, according to CNN. The senator apparently told the outlet that “several of his colleagues held similar views and asked not to be named discussing sensitive internal politics.”

Similarly, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) said he would not be able to support McConnell as leader if the Kentucky Republican voted to convict Trump.

“‘No, no, no,’ he said, adding, ‘I don’t even think we should be having a trial.’”

Lawmakers in the Democrat-led House of Representatives, including ten Republicans, voted to impeach Trump for the second time one week after the U.S. Capitol protest that occurred on January 6, accusing him of inciting the chaos that took place. Now the Senate is tasked with holding a trial, despite the fact that Trump is already out of office. However, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has already revealed that their major goal, in addition to convicting Trump, is to prevent him from ever running for office again amid fears that he will launch another presidential bid for 2024.
