BREAKING: Fate of Congressional January 6th Commission Revealed

The weekend’s political dialogue just got a whole lot more interesting.

After weeks of bitter, public feuding between our elected officials, there has been a vote on whether or not Congress should form a commission to investigate the events of January 6th.

On the right side of the aisle, they feared that the Democrats would take this as an opportunity to berate and defame former President Donald Trump, perhaps even using the commission to bolster their second impeachment case – despite the fact that Trump has been acquitted already in that regard, and he’s currently out of office.

The Democrats, however, have taken to shaming the Republicans for their unwillingness to participate, and for their attempts to downplay the attempted insurrection of that day.

Senate Republicans on Friday blocked a bill that would form an independent commission to probe the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, the first filibuster of the year by the chamber’s 50-vote minority.

The 54-35 vote, with six Republicans breaking ranks to join every Democrat in favor, came after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell lobbied his members forcefully against the House-passed commission measure. The vote was delayed through the night by a handful of Senate Republicans who obstructed China competitiveness legislation, though Democrats decided to punt that bill until after the Memorial Day recess week in order to push forward on the commission bill.

Several undecided Republicans came down against advancing the commission ahead of Friday’s critical procedural vote, despite efforts by Sen. Susan Collins of Maine to broker a compromise and last-minute lobbying by the family of fallen Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick. McConnell took an increasingly hard public and private line against establishing the new panel to probe the Jan. 6 Capitol attack by pro-insurrectionists, dubbing the commission idea “extraneous” on Thursday.

We can only imagine that there will be a sorrowful and somber mood at a number of progressive pressers over the weekend, likely chocked with hyperbole and doom, and they continue to push their already-adjudicated narrative.

Biden to Tackle Gun Violence with Summer Camps and Jobs

This is all just another plug for the American Rescue Plan.

Published

During the presidency of Donald Trump, many of his supporters were sure that the Commander in Chief was fighting a barely-secret war against a “deep state” of establishment politicians whose goal was to keep the status quo chugging along at all costs, enriching themselves in the process. And, given that Trump had to work in the shadows to accomplish this, many began using the term “4D chess” to describe his fight. Any time that The Don made a move that seemed a bit out of character, many believed that this was a subterranean attempt at stealing power from the deep state that only Trump could quite understand. Now, in a far more bizarre set of moves, it appears as thought the Biden administration is trying to play something like 7 or 8D chess when they are only truly qualified to handle tic-tac-toe. First, they insist that “climate change” is a “root cause” of illegal immigration, which is a dumbfounding declaration in and of its own right. Now they are aiming to tackle gun violence with summer camp. President Joe Biden on Wednesday will lay out his plan for addressing the surge in gun violence that has impacted cities around the country in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The president’s strategy will address five key areas: stemming the flow of firearms used to commit violence; providing law enforcement with more resources; investing in community violence interventions; expanding summer programs and employment opportunities, especially for young people; and helping formerly incarcerated people re-enter their communities. As part of Biden’s plan, the Treasury Department will issue new guidelines Wednesday making clear that communities experiencing a surge in gun violence as a result of the pandemic can use the $350 billion in state and local funding included in the American Rescue Plan to…

ABOUT TIME: Kamala Harris Makes Much-Anticipated Travel Plans

It only took three months!

It has taken three months, but our Vice President is finally about to tackle the border crisis head on. Sure, Kamala Harris has visited Guatemala, but, ask anyone involved in that debacle and you’re unlikely to find a glowing review of her diplomacy there.  In fact, after Harris left, the President of that nation told the world that the whole immigration crisis is Joe Biden’s fault anyway. Now, after incessant criticism from the mainstream media, Harris will finally be heading to the border. Vice President Kamala Harris is set to visit the U.S.-Mexico border on Friday, the White House confirmed, amid mounting criticism from Republicans for not yet doing so, following her appointment by President Biden to handle the “root causes” of migration. Harris is set to visit El Paso, Texas, with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Harris has come under heavy criticism from Republicans and some Democrats for the way she has handled the role since being appointed to it 91 days ago. While the White House has emphasized she is tasked with the “root causes” of the border crisis, Republicans have criticized her repeatedly for not having visited the border at all – with former Trump officials saying she needs to go to the border in order to be able to conduct the talks effectively. Harris has thus far opted to work on the “root causes” of illegal immigration, stating that she believes “climate change” to be a major factor; a proclamation that has enthused the radical leftists of the Democratic Party.
