McCarthy Unloads on Biden’s ‘Bait and Switch’ Socialism

McCarthy was absolutely savage in his assessment.

President Joe Biden is quickly approaching his 100th day in office – a milestone that has been long used as an opportunity for both the President and those around him to remark on the quality of the job at hand.

For Biden, this first three-months-plus has been rough.  Not only is the Commander in Chief juggling the COVID-19 pandemic and an out-of-control surge of migrants at the southern border, but he has outside aggressors such as Vladimir Putin constantly breathing down his neck as well.

Furthermore, the Republicans are starting to notice a disturbing pattern of the Biden presidency, and they have been unafraid of calling it out.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Sunday argued that President Biden’s first 100 days in office have been like a “bait and switch,” saying he has failed to live up to his promises of bipartisan governing.

“If I look at the 100 days, it’s more like a bait and switch,” McCarthy told “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace. “The bait was he was going to govern as bipartisan but the switch is he’s governed as a socialist.”

McCarthy pointed specifically to the Biden infrastructure plan in which only 6% of the massive sum was dedicated to roads, bridges, and other traditional infrastructure projects.

“Republicans would be the first ones to work with him, but I think the very first thing we would need to do is define what infrastructure is: roads, bridges, airports, Broadcom? We would get this done. [Biden] is trying to pick a number instead of foreseeing what do we need to make America competitive.”

Biden will address a joint session of Congress in the coming days, and he’s most assuredly going to be touching on his massive infrastructure bill during that appearance.

Top NY Democrat Blasted for Spending $29K on Travel After Telling Voters to Stay Home Over COVID

A top New York Democrat is suffering a backlash after having spent $29,000 on travel expenses even as he was loudly telling New Yorkers to stay home to “stop the spread” of the coronavirus. According to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee records, Democrat Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, who leads the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, spent the cash on “ground transportation” and “automobile expenses” in the last nine months of 2020, the Washington Free Beacon reported. The exorbitant spending included “nearly $20,000 in lease and insurance payments, more than $3,600 in collision repairs, nearly $2,200 in gas, more than $2,100 in rental car fees, and nearly $500 for a satellite radio subscription,” the Free Beacon added. However, Maloney also halted personal campaign events with his voters in New York. Meanwhile he was loudly telling voters back home to accept the lockdowns to stem the tide of the coronavirus. “Stay at home. Don’t go out if you don’t need to, minimize your contact with other people,” Maloney said in a radio interview. “If a member of your family is sick, the whole family’s got to stay home so we don’t go spread it.” Now, some ethics experts are slamming Maloney. Kendra Arnold, executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, told the Beacon that Maloney’s expenditures raised “red flags” and that he “has a duty to explain” the expenditures. “Candidates don’t have to link [disbursements] to a specific corresponding event,” Arnold added. “We generally look for spending that isn’t in the realm of a candidate in the same state or in a similar-sized district.” Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Friends of Giuliani Want Trump to Help Rudy with Insurmountable Legal Debt

That’s not good…

Rudy Giuliani

In the waning days of 2020, on through the first 3 weeks of this new year, Rudy Giuliani was Donald Trump’s ride or die.  His “BFF”, if you will. The former NYC Mayor was the attorney for Trump at the time, and was tasked with finding a way to prove that the 2020 election was “stolen” from Trump. Rudy hit a number of brick walls, litigiously, and apparently did so at great personal cost. Giuliani’s advisers are pleading with Trump’s team to dip into its $250 million campaign bank account and pay the attorney for the work he did to try to overturn the results of the 2020 election, according to a report from The New York Times. Giuliani’s team increased the pressure on Trump’s camp, the Times reported, after federal prosecutors executed a search warrant at the lawyer’s home and office as part of an investigation into his dealings with Ukraine. They are looking into whether Giuliani illegally lobbied the Trump administration on behalf of Ukrainian oligarchs, the same officials who were helping him search for dirt on Trump’s political foes, including then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. Rudy and The Don had a bit of a falling out near the end of Trump’s first term, with the then-President allegedly infuriated over the inability of his longtime confidante to reverse course on the election.
