Democrats Throw Roadblock in Front Of Biden’s Extreme Agenda

. . .Two Democrats have confirmed they are unwilling to change the Senate’s filibuster rule, which requires 60 votes to advance most legislation, Just the News reported.

The two Democrats are Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona.

Manchin wrote in a commentary this week that the filibuster “is a critical tool to protecting” the voice of small and rural states “and our democratic form of government.”

“I have said it before and will say it again to remove any shred of doubt: There is no circumstance in which I will vote to eliminate or weaken the filibuster. The time has come to end these political games, and to usher a new era of bipartisanship where we find common ground on the major policy debates facing our nation,” he wrote. . .

“When you have a place that’s broken and not working, and many would say that’s the Senate today, I don’t think the solution is to erode the rules,” Sinema said in a report in the Wall Street Journal. “I think the solution is for senators to change their behavior and begin to work together, which is what the country wants us to do.” (Read more from “Democrats Throw Roadblock in Front Of Biden’s Extreme Agenda” HERE)

Homeless Veterans Are Ineligible For $15.6K Payments To Illegal Aliens

Homeless veterans in New York are not eligible for the $15,600 one-time payments that nearly 200,000 illegal aliens will soon receive, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) notes.

As Breitbart News has reported, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and state Democrats have struck a budget deal that includes $2.1 billion in taxpayer funding to provide unemployment benefits and stimulus checks to about 187,000 illegal aliens.

Illegal aliens who will be eligible for the one-time payment could receive up to $15,600, the equivalent of about $300 a week for one year. The aid to illegal aliens is $1.1 billion more in funding than tax credits and grants authorized for New York small businesses in the budget.

Cotton, in a statement posted online, noted the state’s homeless veterans are not eligible for the stimulus benefits:

David Hogg Abandons Liberal Pillow Business After Two Months

Anti-gun activist David Hogg has abandoned his plans to launch a liberal competitor to MyPillow just over two months into the project.

Hogg announced Saturday that he resigned and released all ownership of Good Pillow LLC, his joint business venture with liberal activist William LeGate. Hogg and LeGate sought to start a “progressive pillow company” that used sustainable manufacturing practices and unionized labor.

The effort began as a response to Trump-supporting pillow magnate Mike Lindell’s … post-election claims that President Joe Biden stole the 2020 election from former President Donald Trump. Hogg and LeGate promised to make a better pillow manufactured in the United States and pledged to donate a portion of their revenue to progressive causes.

Caught In Another Lie: Biden Orders Commission to Study How Democrats Can Pack the Supreme Court

President Joe Biden issued an executive order Friday directing a commission of 36 scholars, former judges, lawyers, and others led by a former Obama adviser to evaluate expanding the number of justices on the Supreme Court.

The reportedly bipartisan commission has 180 days to provide a study to Biden examining and outlining “the genesis of the reform debate, the Court’s role in the Constitutional system, the length of service and turnover of justices on the Court” as well as “the Court’s case selection, rules, and practices.”

“The Commission’s purpose is to provide an analysis of the principal arguments in the contemporary public debate for and against Supreme Court reform, including an appraisal of the merits and legality of particular reform proposals,” the White House said in a statement.

Despite Biden’s previous refusal to admit that he wants to pack the courts and the corporate press’s inability to pressure him further on his position, the Democrat has faced mounting pressure from progressives to take action and power away from what they see as a conservative-controlled judicial body. During his time on the campaign trail, Biden signaled that Court reform was a priority at the top of his agenda because the system is “getting out of whack.” (Read more from “Caught In Another Lie: Biden Orders Commission to Study How Democrats Can Pack the Supreme Court” HERE)

Dr. Fauci Fails to Explain Why Restriction-Free State Doesn’t Have COVID Uptick

It’s been some five weeks since Texas lifted its mask mandate, and there has yet to be an explosion of COVID-19 cases.

It’s something Dr. Anthony Fauci can’t quite explain.

“I’m not really quite sure,” he told MSNBC this week. “It could be they’re doing things outdoors.”

Daily cases in Texas hovered above 7,000 in early March, when Gov. Greg Abbott lifted the state’s mask rules, leaving it up to individuals and organizations to make their own decisions. . .

“We’ve been fooled before by situations where people begin to open back up. Nothing happens and then all of a sudden several weeks later things explode on you, so we’ve got to be careful we don’t prematurely judge that,” he added.

Report: Nearly 40% Of Marines Opted Out of the COVID-19 Vaccine

Almost 40% of eligible U.S. Marines have declined COVID-19 vaccinations, according to data the service provided to CNN on Friday.

About 75,000 marines received vaccines compared to 48,000 who have opted out, according to CNN, which is a 38.9% declination rate. About 102,000 Marines have not been offered the vaccine, CNN reported.

“We fully understand that widespread acceptance of the COVID-19 vaccine provides us with the best means to defeat the pandemic,” Marine Corps spokeswoman Col. Kelly Frushour said to CNN. “The key to addressing the pandemic is building vaccine confidence.”

Frushour said those who have opted out may want others to receive it first, wait until it becomes mandatory, go through other channels, or have an allergy to the vaccine. (Read more from “Report: Nearly 40% Of Marines Opted Out of the COVID-19 Vaccine” HERE)

Kansas GOP Leader Allegedly Calls Officer ‘Doughnut Boy’ in DUI Stop

The Kansas Senate majority leader allegedly called a police officer “doughnut boy” after being stopped on March 16 at a driving under the influence checkpoint that could leave him with a felony conviction, an affidavit stated.

Officer Austin Shepley pulled state Sen. Gene Suellentrop over in Shawnee County for allegedly going the wrong way on a divided highway after observing him going up to 90 mph in a 65 mph zone. Shepley pursued Suellentrop before performing a tactical maneuver to bring him to a stop, he said.

Suellentrop appeared to be confused when Shepley approached the vehicle and was not obedient to his commands, the officer said. . .

In interactions with Shepley, the Republican leader called him “doughnut boy” and said he could “take” him, mentioning that he played sports in high school, the officer wrote in the affidavit. (Read more from “Kansas GOP Leader Allegedly Calls Officer ‘Doughnut Boy’ in DUI Stop” HERE)

Pete Buttigieg: Racism Is ‘Physically Built Into’ Country’s Highways

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg suggested in a recent interview that racism is built into the country’s highway system.

“There is racism physically built into some of our highways, and that’s why the jobs plan has specifically committed to reconnect some of the communities that were divided by these dollars,” the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor told reporter April Ryan this week in an interview discussing President Joe Biden’s proposed $2 trillion infrastructure plan. . .

“Well, if you’re in Washington, I’m told that the history of that highway is one that was built at the expense of communities of color in the D.C. area,” he said. “There are stories, and I think Philadelphia and Pittsburgh [and] in New York, Robert Moses famously saw through the construction of a lot of highways.”

Buttigieg added that there has been a lack of federal infrastructure projects in black communities throughout history and said it “wasn’t just an act of neglect” but rather a “conscious choice” that the Biden administration hopes to rectify in the new spending package.

Biden Proposes Spike In Federal Spending In Massive Budget Proposal

By New York Post. President Biden’s first annual budget proposal calls for a surge in federal spending on climate change, civil rights, IRS tax collections and the worsening border crisis on top of his massive, just-passed $1.9 trillion stimulus package and pending $2.3 trillion infrastructure bill.

The budget proposal calls for a 16 percent increase in domestic spending and a 1.7 percent increase in Pentagon spending in fiscal 2022, according to a letter to Congress from acting White House budget director Shalanda Young.

The combined price tag tops $1.5 trillion for discretionary spending, which doesn’t include obligatory spending on entitlements like Social Security or interest on the national debt.

“America has a chance not simply to go back to the way things were before the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn struck, but to begin building a better, stronger, more secure, more inclusive America,” Young wrote to Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)

Biden’s $1.5 Trillion ‘Skinny’ Budget Includes Increases for Climate, Education and Social Justice Spending Programs

By Daily Caller. President Joe Biden sent his discretionary budget request for Fiscal Year 2022 to Congress on Friday, which includes historic increases across various education, climate and social justice spending programs.

In total, Biden’s “skinny” budget requests $769 billion for non-defense spending, a $105.3 billion increase from the previous year’s enacted budget.

Though the president previously criticized former President Donald Trump’s drastic increases in overall defense spending, Biden’s FY22 request also includes a $13.3 billion increase for defense programs, bringing the total to $753 billion for the year.

Administration officials say the defense bumps will allow the country to pursue “its strategic goals as we outcompete China” and provide pay raises for service members.

“The upcoming appropriations process is another important opportunity to continue laying a stronger foundation for the future and reversing a legacy of chronic disinvestment in crucial priorities,” Shalanda Young, Acting Director of the Office of Management and Budget, wrote Friday morning in a letter sent to Congress. “Together, America has a chance not simply to go back to the way things were before the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn struck, but to begin building a better, stronger, more secure, more inclusive America.” (Read more from “Biden’s $1.5 Trillion ‘Skinny’ Budget Includes Increases for Climate, Education and Social Justice Spending Programs” HERE)
