Biden’s War On Parents

18 Jan

Last week we learned that President Biden’s Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona,  “solicited” the letter from the National School Boards Association (NSBA) that compared concerned parents to “domestic terrorists.”

Secretary Cardona should resign IMMEDIATELY and explain himself to the American people.

The Biden Administration’s war on parents is absolutely outrageous and should infuriate every family across this nation.

BIDEN’S WAR ON PARENTS:

  • The Biden Administration reportedly “solicited the much-criticized letter from the National School Boards Association (NSBA)” that compared concerned parents to “domestic terrorists” in September.
    • Concerned parents are NOT domestic terrorists.
    • Parents are right to be concerned about their kids being taught radical ideologies or exposed to inappropriate instructional materials – parents should be engaged.
  • Biden promised to work to reopen schools in his first 100 days.
  • Instead of advocating for school choice and parental rights, the Biden Administration wants to take complete control of our children’s education.
  • The Democrats’ Far-Left reconciliation bill would take away the rights of parents and give authority to Democrats in Washington.
    • It would give the Biden administration complete control to approve the early childhood education standards and limit parents’ choice in their children’s education.
    • The Democrats’ child care proposal would SPIKE prices for middle-class families by $13,000.
    • This legislation is a ploy by Democrats to indoctrinate America’s youth with their Far-Left Socialist ideas from the start of their educational process until its conclusion.
  • Education is a winning issue for Republicans.
    • Republicans are working to protect parental rights and expand school choice, not empower the Federal Government.

IT’S SIMPLE: Republicans believe in a Parents’ Bill of Rights when it comes to education. While, Biden and Congressional Democrats believe that concerned parents should be targeted like “domestic terrorists” for wanting to be involved, rightfully so, in their kids’ education.”

Secretary Cardona Flat-Out Lies About Requesting The NSBA Letter That Called Concerned Parents “Domestic Terrorists”

13 Jan

President Biden’s Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, LIED to the American people when he denied requesting a letter from the National School Boards Association (NSBA) that compared concerned parents to “domestic terrorists” in September during an interview with “CBS Mornings,” on Wednesday.

We didn’t ask for that letter. We didn’t…No. Specifically with that letter, we had no — we didn’t request that, there was no involvement in that,” Cardona told “CBS Mornings.”

This is a flat-out LIE.

On Tuesday, Fox News reported Secretary Cardona in fact “solicited the much-criticized letter from the NSBA that compared protesting parents to domestic terrorists, according to an email exchange reviewed by Fox News.”

Previous emails already revealed that the NSBA coordinated with Biden’s White House and the Department of Justice for weeks about their letter’s content before publicly sending it.

Yesterday’s report and Secretary Cardon’s bold lie this morning is why he must immediately testify before Congress about the letter he solicited that labeled parents as “domestic terrorists.”

THE DEMOCRATS ATTACK ON CONCERNED PARENTS FAILED:

  • Concerned parents are NOT domestic terrorists.
  • Education is a winning issue for Republicans.
    • Republicans are working to protect parental rights and expand school choice, not empower the Federal Government.
  • Instead of advocating for school choice and parental rights, the Biden Administration wants to take complete control of our children’s education.
  • Parents are right to be concerned about their kids being taught radical ideologies or exposed to inappropriate instructional materials – parents should be engaged.
  • The Democrats’ Far-Left reconciliation bill would take away the rights of parents and give authority to Democrats in Washington.
    • It would give the Biden administration complete control to approve the early childhood education standards and limits parents’ choice in their children’s education.
    • The Democrats’ child care proposal would SPIKE prices for middle-class families by $13,000.
    • This legislation is a ploy by Democrats to indoctrinate America’s youth with their Far-Left Socialist ideas from the start of their educational process until its conclusion.

IT’S SIMPLE: Parents ARE the primary stakeholders in their child’s education, not the radical Democrats, federal government, or failed teachers unions. Secretary Cardona’s lie this morning shows the Biden Administration is not prepared to answer to concerned parents on why the Biden Administration thinks they are “domestic terrorists.”

Dems Prepare To Use Legislative Gimmicks In A Desperate Attempt To Nationalize Elections

13 Jan

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is planning on using a legislative gimmick in order to bring forward the Democrats’ “voting rights” legislation in the coming days.

According to Politico:

“The House will imminently pass a bill containing both sweeping federal elections reform and beefed up Voting Right Act provisions. Because the bill will be sent to the Senate as a “message” from the House, it will not be subject to an initial filibuster by the GOP and will be debated on the floor. Instead, the Senate will confront its raging debate over the filibuster when Majority Leader Schumer moves to shut down debate.”  

Make no mistake about it: The Democrats’ “voting rights” legislation is nothing more than an attempt to nationalize elections to maintain power. If enacted, it will destroy our institutions and enable Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take over all elections throughout the country.

Democrats’ crying foul at the use of the filibuster is the height of hypocrisy as Schumer himself has voted OVER 500 times to sustain a filibuster during his 23 years in the Senate. In 2020, Democrats used the filibuster 327 times alone.

HERE ARE THE FACTS: 

  • The Democrats’ “voting rights” legislation would:
    • Give BILLIONS of public dollars to campaigns. Speaker Pelosi would receive up to $22.7 MILLION in public dollars for her reelection campaign, and Senate Majority Leader Schumer would receive up to $44.1 for his reelection campaign.
    • Transform the office of the U.S. Attorney General into an unelected, unaccountable “Elections Czar” with the power to change state elections law and circumvent state constitutional processes.
    • Force states to legalize ballot harvesting.
    • Make it harder for states to maintain their voter lists.
    • Disregard state voter identification laws and provisional ballot rules.
    • Imposes liberal California voting methods on every state.
    • Allow the IRS to investigate and consider the political and policy persuasions of organizations before granting tax-exempt status.
  • 2020 saw the highest turnout in 120 years and, according to Pew, 94% say it’s easy to vote. There is clearly no widespread “voter suppression” issue in this country.

DEMOCRATS FILIBUSTER HYPOCRISY: 

  • In 2017, 32 Democrat senators signed a letter urging the Senate leadership to preserve the filibuster including Vice President Kamala Harris
  • The filibuster is the only reason millions of Americans have a voice in the current government.
  • Democrats used the filibuster 327 times in 2020 alone.
  • For decades, Joe Biden stood against eliminating the filibuster say it would have drastic consequences:
  • Vice President Kamala Harris has expressed support for the filibuster in the past:
    • In 2019, Harris said she had a “practical concern” if the filibuster were not in place during an interview.
    • In 2017, Harris along with 31 other Democrat senators signed a letter urging the Senate leadership to preserve the 60-vote threshold.
    • In 2017, Harris praised Senator Jeff Merkley’s filibuster of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.
  • Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has voted OVER 500 times to sustain a filibuster during his 23 years in the Senate.
    • In 2005, Schumer said that it would be a “doomsday for democracy” if the Senate changed its rules on the filibuster.

Inflation Just Hit 7%; The Highest Rate In 40 Years

12 Jan

Inflation is taxation, and it has gone up every month of Joe Biden’s presidency.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI), a key inflation index, hit a 40-year high in December. The CPI rose 7% in December compared with a year ago, the largest annual increase since 1982. What is worse is 2021 went down as the worst year for inflation since 1981.

December’s CPI report is the latest sign is that Biden and House Democrats’ out-of-control spending is only worsening our economic crisis as Americans are now making less while paying more for just about everything.

BIDEN’S ECONOMIC CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS: 

  • Inflation is a tax on ALL Americans.
  • Inflation has increased every month of Joe Biden’s presidency.
  • In December, the CPI  increased by 0.5% to 7%.
  • 2021 went down as the worst year for inflation since 1981.
  • Real wages have decreased under Biden 8 out of 11 months since his first full month in office.
  • Real average hourly earnings decreased 2.4 percent, seasonally adjusted, from December 2020 to December 2021.
  • Americans are paying more for just about everything because of inflation:
  • December’s CPI Report follows the worst jobs report of Biden’s presidency:
    • The December jobs report was the worst of Joe Biden’s presidency with only 199,000 jobs being added.
    • The labor force participation rates decreased for the following demographics:
      • African American men 20 and older
      • Asian Americans
      • Hispanic or Latino Americans
    • The number of persons not in the labor force who currently want a job was little changed at 5.7 million in December.

IT’S SIMPLE: Instead of addressing the root cause of inflation out-of-control government spending, President Biden continues to push his Far-Left Socialist reconciliation package, which will only exacerbate America’s economic crisis.

Democrats’ Attempt To Abolish The Filibuster Is A Desperate Ploy To Nationalize Elections

12 Jan

President Biden called for the United States Senate to abolish the filibuster as part of the Democrats’ desperate attempt to nationalize elections on Tuesday.

The Democrats’ “voting rights” legislation is nothing more than an attempt to nationalize elections to maintain power. If enacted, it will destroy our institutions and enable Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take over all elections throughout the country.

HERE ARE THE FACTS: 

  • The Democrats’ “voting rights” legislation would:
    • Give BILLIONS of public dollars to campaigns. Speaker Pelosi would receive up to $22.7 MILLION in public dollars for her reelection campaign, and Senate Majority Leader Schumer would receive up to $44.1 MILLION for his reelection campaign.
    • Transform the office of the U.S. Attorney General into an unelected, unaccountable “Elections Czar” with the power to change state elections law and circumvent state constitutional processes.
    • Force states to legalize ballot harvesting.

Biden Lobbies on Behalf of the Kremlin While Abandoning American Energy Producers

11 Jan

Since taking office, President Biden has repeatedly enacted an anti-energy agenda that has caused U.S. energy prices to skyrocket while threatening American national security.

This week, the Biden White House sent top officials to lobby Senate Democrats against Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) legislation, which would sanction Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

Let that sink in: The President of the United States is now lobbying on behalf of Russian interests.

BIDEN’S ENERGY CRISIS: 

  • Biden is building pipelines for Putin but not Americans.
  • On President Biden’s first day in office, he killed over 11,000 American jobs, which were created by the Keystone Pipeline.
    1. The Keystone XL oil pipeline project developer announced that they were abandoning the project, which would have created thousands of high-paying American jobs following President Biden’s decision to revoke a key permit for the pipeline.
  • Biden is incapable of standing up to Putin and instead is building a pipeline for him while destroying American energy jobs.
    1. The Biden administration waived sanctions on the Russian Nord Stream 2 pipeline into Germany in May, days before announcing his summit with Putin.

BIDEN KEEPS DELIVERING MAJOR VICTORIES FOR RUSSIA.

  • A five-year extension on the New START treaty with no pre-conditions, surrendering U.S. leverage to revise the treaty.
  • The Biden administration waived sanctions on the Russian Nord Stream 2 pipeline into Germany last May, days before announcing his summit with Putin, giving Putin a MAJOR victory.
  • A globally transmitted summit with President Biden.

IT’S SIMPLE: President Biden is incapable of standing up to Putin and instead is building a pipeline for him while destroying American energy jobs. With this new push against Nord Stream 2 sanctions, the Biden administration is lobbying for Putin and against American energy independence.

“It’s The Economy, Stupid.”

11 Jan

This year started with the worst jobs report of Joe Biden’s presidency and Americans paying more for just about everything while making less because of skyrocketing inflation.

In short, America is facing an economic crisis fueled by President Biden and House Democrats’ Far-Left Socialist agenda and out-of-control government spending.

Given the state of our economy, it’s not surprising that a recent survey by the Associated Press found that 68% of respondents said the economy was “a top 2022 concern,” making it the top overall concern in the survey.

BIDEN’S ECONOMIC CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS: 

  • The December jobs report was the worst of Joe Biden’s presidency with only 199,000 jobs being added.
  • The labor force participation rates decreased for the following demographics:
    • African American men 20 and older
    • African American teenagers
    • Asian Americans
    • Hispanic or Latino Americans
  • The number of persons not in the labor force who currently want a job was little changed at 5.7 million in December.
  • The weaker than expected December jobs report comes at a time when inflation is still skyrocketing.
  • Inflation is a tax on all Americans, and it has gone up every month of Biden’s presidency.
  • Americans are paying more for just about everything because of inflation:
  • Real wages have decreased under Biden 8 out of the ten months since his first full month in office.

Make no mistake about it: Biden and House Democrats’ Far-Left Socialist agenda and out-of-control government spending are the reason America is in the midst of an economic crisis.

The December Jobs Report Is The Worst Of Biden’s Failed Presidency

7 Jan

The December jobs report was another big miss and the worst of Joe Biden’s presidency. The U.S. economy added just 199,000 jobs during the month, falling well short of economists’ projections.

Economists had projected that 450,000 new jobs would be added to the U.S. economy in December.

This weaker-than-expected jobs report is just the latest sign that Biden’s economic crisis will continue into 2022.

BIDEN’S ECONOMIC CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS: 

  • The December jobs report was the worst of Joe Biden’s presidency with only 199,000 jobs being added.
  • The labor force participation rates decreased for the following demographics:
    • African American men 20 and older
    • African American teenagers
    • Asian Americans
    • Hispanic or Latino Americans
    • Hispanic or Latino men 20 and older
    • Hispanic or Latino teenagers
  • The number of persons not in the labor force who currently want a job was little changed at 5.7 million in December.
  • The weaker than expected December jobs report comes at a time when inflation is still skyrocketing.
  • Inflation is a tax on all Americans, and it has gone up every month of Biden’s presidency.
  • Real wages have decreased under Biden 8 out of the ten months since his first full month in office.

Biden Has Failed To “Shut Down” COVID-19 And Provide All Americans With Access To Regular, Reliable, And Free Testing

5 Jan

When Joe Biden ran for president, he promised the American people that he would “shut down” COVID-19 and that all Americans would “have access to regular, reliable, and free testing.

Biden has failed to deliver on these promises despite inheriting vaccines developed in record time by President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed, a powerful distribution plan, and an ever-growing testing capacity.

Biden and Biden alone is to blame for the COVID-19 testing shortage that America is facing. 

Under Biden’s failed leadership and despite the testing shortage, the United States reported nearly 1 MILLION new COVID-19 cases on Monday. This is the highest daily tally of any country in the world and nearly double the previous peak set a week ago.

BIDEN’S COVID CRISIS:

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Biden’s failed leadership has created the COVID-19 crisis that is now gripping the nation.

House Republicans Are Working To Prevent Another January 6th While House Dems Are Covering Up The Truth

5 Jan

House Republicans are interviewing United States Capitol Police (USCP) officers and other individuals with insight into the horrendous security failures at the Capitol that allowed the events of January 6, 2021, to happen because Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats have refused to act.

House Republicans were united in condemning the violence and destruction on January 6th, just as we were throughout the crime of 2020.

Unfortunately, Speaker Pelosi has decided to weaponize the horrendous events of January 6th and create an illegitimate and partisan sham Select Committee. This isn’t just a sham Committee—Democrats are covering up the truth about what happened on January 6th.

That is why House Republicans are unified in conducting a thorough investigation into the events of January 6th to understand: Why was the U.S. Capitol left unprepared that day, and how can we ensure this never happens again?

HERE IS WHAT THE HOUSE REPUBLICANS’ INVESTIGATION HAS UNCOVERED: 

  • Sources have explained to Republican investigators that there were significant personnel changes in critical roles after the November 2020 elections.
    • They were inexperienced but made significant changes right when they were hired and muddied the waters for their employees.
  • There continues to be no accountability and the personnel who made these disastrous policy changes remains in charge of the intelligence of our Capitol.
    • Over half a dozen top USCP officials got votes of no-confidence from the USCP union. Many by over 90%. Most still occupy high-level positions.
  • The head of the USCP union told Rep. Banks that his officers were ill-prepared, poorly trained in crowd control tactics, and in many cases, worse equipped than the rioters they were up against.

THE CAPITOL SECURITY FAILURE: 

  • Intel failure: There were credible intelligence reports regarding threats to the Capitol weeks before January 6th and Capitol Police intel analysts warned their supervisor on multiple occasions but were ignored.
  • Preparation failure: The Capitol Police had expired riot shields and other faulty equipment.

TOPLINES: 

1. This is a partisan and illegitimate Committee. 

  • Speaker Pelosi took the unprecedented step of blocking the participation of the Republicans that Leader McCarthy chose to serve on the Select Committee.
  • The Committee is not following its own charter:
    • The Committee’s charter says that it must have 13 members, it only has 9.
    • The charter says that the Committee must have a lawyer from the ranking minority member during a deposition—there is no ranking minority member and no staff appointed by the minority.
    • The Committee has even misled witnesses being questioned about the position of the attorney questioning them. Mollie Hemingway broke that news HERE.
  •  The Meadow’s lawsuit cites a Supreme Court ruling that to issue contempt citations a Select Committee must act in accordance with its own rules.

2. This is an abusive Committee whose mission is to harass and snoop on its political opponents. 

  • The FBI has found that there was no “organized plot” on 1/6, but the Committee has based its investigation on the conspiracy that there was an attempted insurrection,
  • The Committee has subpoenaed multiple individuals for the sole “crime” of organizing a first amendment protected political rally.
    • From their press release: “The committee used permit paperwork for the Jan. 6 rally to identify other individuals involved in organizing.”
  • The Committee issued a contempt citation for Mark Meadows despite repeated attempts to cooperate within the bounds of executive privilege.
  • The Committee has interviewed over 150 people, swept up geolocation data and call records of rally organizers and low-level Trump staffers, and even may subpoena sitting members of Congress.

3. This isn’t just a sham Committee—Democrats are covering up the truth about what happened on January 6. 

  • The Capitol Chief Police board which includes the Senate and House Sergeant at Arms and the Architect of the Capitol was slow to call National Guard assistance on 1/6 (pg. 62).
  • The Senate released a report and Pelosi’s House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving refused to comply with ANY information requests. From page 4of the Senate report.
    • These documents are the property of the House and Speaker Pelosi and Bennie Thompson could get them with an email—but they refuse!
    • Not surprising because Bennie Thompson has said that Speaker Pelosi is off limits
  • The Committee is not investigating the breakdown in security on the 6th, even though its charter requires it to.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Pelosi and House Democrats are using their illegitimate and partisan sham Select Committee on January 6th as a weapon to shred Constitutional precedents and persecute political opponents
