Even though most members of Congress are well-off financially before taking office, House Democrats are now proposing a pay increase.

Here’s the scoop…

House spending leaders want to break a decadelong pay freeze and give members of Congress a cost-of-living bump that could pad their salaries with an extra $4,500 next year.

Congressional salaries have been frozen at about $174,000 since 2009, when Democrats controlled Congress and decided to suspend automatic cost-of-living increases while heading into the 2010 election year.

Freshman Democrat Rep. Katie Porter. Heard of her?

She recently admitted that getting elected to Congress really, really, really helped erase her medical bills.

Must be nice, huh?

From Free Beacon:

Congresswoman Katie Porter (D, Calif.,) revealed in a subcommittee meeting that a tangled mess of health care bills she was facing was cleared up when a patient advocate told the insurance company Porter had been recently elected to the House of Representatives.

In a Tuesday hearing titled “Protecting Patients from Surprise Medical Bills,” the freshman representative told her personal story of needing an emergency appendectomy last August. She said she was shocked to get a bill for $3,000 because one of the surgeons was out of her provider network.

Porter noted, “As I continued to fight my insurance company, I kept receiving bills from the surgeon. Eventually, nearly five months after I was hospitalized, the surgeon was forced to simply request payment.

She said, “Finally, the patient advocate, invoking the fact that I had just been elected to Congress, was able to get the insurance company to agree to pay my surgeon’s bill.

Have you heard those stories of radical lefties assaulting conservatives overseas with milkshakes?

Well, it’s now happening in the states.

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) can attest.

President Trump says what’s on his mind 24/7.

He does not have a filter and that’s what so many millions of Americans love about him.

While speaking before reporters at the White House on Thursday, POTUS let the nation know that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is a “mess” and that Congress can’t get anything done because of obstructionist Democrats.

Trump noted, “She’s a mess, let’s face it. It’s a do nothing congress. She’s lost it.

’60 Minutes’ Report on UFO’s has Twitter Users Spooked

The segment had social media users losing their collective minds.

Published

When it comes to the relationship between the US government and her citizens, there is little doubt that trust is an issue.  We’ve long understood that the large, cumbersome, federal agencies that our tax dollars fund are keeping many of us in the dark, and that rightly irks a great many Americans. Perhaps there is no better example of this secrecy than on the subject of UFO’s, beginning with the purported crash of a flying saucer in Roswell, New Mexico back in the late 1940’s, and continuing to this day with incidents such as the “Tic Tac” encounters reported by members of the armed forces. On Sunday night, mainstream news outfit 60 Minutes aired one hellacious report on the subject, featuring one of the Pentagon’s most well-respected researchers on the subject. Luis Elizondo spent 20 years running military intelligence operations worldwide: in Afghanistan, the Middle East and Guantanamo. He hadn’t given UFOs a second thought until 2008. That’s when he was asked to join something at the Pentagon called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, or “AATIP.” Lue Elizondo: The mission of AATIP was quite simple. It was to collect and analyze information involving anomalous aerial vehicles, what I guess in the vernacular you call them UFOs. We call them UAPs. Bill Whitaker: You know how this sounds? It sounds nutty, wacky. Lue Elizondo: Look, Bill, I’m not, I’m not telling you that, that it doesn’t sound wacky. What I’m telling you, it’s real. The question is, what is it? What are its intentions? What are its capabilities? Buried away in the Pentagon, AATIP was part of a $22 million program sponsored by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to investigate UFOs. When Elizondo took over in 2010 he focused on the national security implications of unidentified aerial phenomena documented by U.S. service…

Capitol Rioter Facing House Arrest After Mountain Lion Hunt

The excursion ran afoul of a “no guns” stipulation set by a judge.

Published

While we may be thankfully several months removed from the tumultuous events of the January 6th attempted insurrection at the US Capitol, there is still a great deal of adjudication left to be done on the subject, as these cases are expected to drag out for several more months, or perhaps even years. One of the alleged participants of that event is now in hot water after the court discovered that he had gone on a mountain lion hunt despite being ordered to avoid firearms completely as a condition of his bail. A Colorado hunting guide charged with participating in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol will likely be placed on 24/7 house arrest — instead of remaining free while his case is pending — because he violated the conditions of his release by hunting and killing a mountain lion. Patrick Montgomery, a Littleton hunting guide, shot a mountain lion during a hunt in Douglas County on March 31, even though he was ordered not to possess any guns while the federal charges against him are pending, according to motions filed by prosecutors last week. Montgomery, 48, is accused of kicking a Metropolitan police officer in the chest and wrestling with the officer to try to take the officer’s baton during the Jan. 6 riot in Washington, D.C., according to court records. He was indicted on 10 charges in April, including assaulting a police officer, engaging in physical violence and illegally entering the Capitol building. Prosecutors pulled no punches in their assessment of Montgomery’s actions. “Montgomery has no respect for the Court’s orders, just like he had no respect for law enforcement at the Capitol on January 6,” reads a motion filed by prosecutors. “…Montgomery has flagrantly violated the law and has shown by his actions that he…
