“Solidarity in Salary” Act Set to Finally Punish Congress for Their Failures

The wealthy, ruling class in Congress has walked all over us in recent decades…that could be about to change forever.

We The People are technically in charge of Congress, although it certainly doesn’t feel that way at all lately.

The wealthy, ruling class that we’ve elected time and again to our legislative branch of government has walked all over us in recent decades, changing laws at will to be able to reap the benefits of corporate meddling in our governmental system.  These congressmen and women are public servants, after all, who have done nothing but taken advantage of us for the benefit of their own wealth.

And, since we seem a bit hesitant to revolt at the moment, the best that we can hope for is to encourage those elected officials who still understand the reason that they even have a job in the first place:  To do our bidding and keep the government functioning properly.

That’s why an intriguing new bill has the support of a great many Americans who were absolutely incensed by the careless and reckless nature of our federal government during our recent partial shutdown.

Rep. Jared Golden of Maine, joined by Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas and Rep. Max Rose of New York, introduced the “Solidarity in Salary Act” on the House floor Tuesday afternoon.

The bill, if passed, would place the daily pay for members of Congress, the president and vice president in escrow for each day a government shutdown was in effect.

Once the government is reopened, the withheld pay would be released.

“Only in a town as broken as Washington do you still get paid when you don’t do your job,” Rose said. “That’s wrong, and it’s past time to make it right.”

A piece of legislature with a similar aim has already received the support of several members of the US Senate, implying that there may be hope for such a common sense bill actually making it to a vote.

Meghan McCain Says Trump Admin Using West As ‘Slush Fund’ For Putin

Published

on

Meghan McCain, co-host of “The View,” is making some rather strange allegations against the Trump administration, claiming that she believes they are using their positions to create a “slush fund” for Russia and its president Vladimir Putin. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: McCain, 35, made the comment during a brief moment on Monday’s show in which she addressed her presentation of the Magnitsky Award to Oleg Sentsov, who was imprisoned in Russia for coming out against Russia’s annexation of Crimea, last week. “I was at the Magnitsky Human Rights Awards in London, and Sergei Magnitsky was someone who found corruption in Russia, was subsequently tortured and killed because of it, and there is now an act that is in the United States, and we’re trying to make it expand globally where basically Russia can’t use the West and democracy for their dirty money, that they can’t launder it in countries that love and utilize democracy and freedom every single day,” she said. Before the show went to a commercial break, she added, “I believe there are people in the Trump administration that are trying to use the West as a slush fund for Vladimir Putin and Russia, and we cannot let it happen.” https://youtu.be/yCYam09arxU Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya stated previously she discussed the reexamination of the Magnitsky law with President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., here referenced by McCain, during a meeting that took place back at Trump Tower back in 2016 before Trump won the election.

Navy SEAL From Bin Laden Raid Calls Out Biden For Saying Trump ‘Not Fit To Command’ Troops, Says ‘How Dare You’

Published

on

Former Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill, the man who claims to have killed radical Islamic terrorist Osama bin Laden, let it be known in no uncertain terms that he was not happy with a recent statement made by former Vice President Joe Biden stating President Trump is not fit to command U.S. troops. Biden posted up a tweet on Sunday about Trump’s decision to pardon three military members who had been accused or convicted of war crimes. The president cleared Army Special Forces Maj. Mathew Golsteyn and Army Lt. Clint Lorance and restored the rank of Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher. The list of crimes they had been charged with included killing a suspected Taliban bomb maker, taking photographs of an Islamic State fighter’s dead body, and killing two civilians. Here’s more from the Washington Examiner: Trump claimed he intervened because he wants Americans fighting overseas to have the “confidence to fight.” Biden claimed Trump’s decision “betrayed the rule of law” and those who fight honorably. O’Neill, who claims he was the SEAL responsible for killing Osama bin Laden, shot down the 2020 Democrat’s tweet by highlighting his own foreign policy flaws. He noted that Biden reportedly opposed the 2011 raid to kill bin Laden and that he announced SEAL Team 6 was responsible for the operation. https://twitter.com/JoeBiden/status/1196093459486191616 Many individuals think that Biden’s admission of SEAL Team 6’s involvement in the death of bin Laden put the team’s members in danger, including an attack on one of the team’s helicopters which resulted in the death of several individuals who participated in the raid. https://twitter.com/mchooyah/status/1196291215844495360 Lest anyone think O’Neill is a die-hard Trump supporter, it’s important to note he’s been critical of the commander-in-chief on many occasions, including the president’s call for a military parade, which he called “third world bulls***.”
