The same Republicans who told you COVID was a hoax and that people should be happy to die to help the economy were the first in line for the vaccine.
Mike Pence famously refused to allow medical professionals to stop an outbreak of HIV in Indiana, preferring to go home and pray about it. As we can see when it’s own life on the line he doesn’t rely on God’s will quite so much.
Does anyone trust the federal government to investigate itself, then be transparent with the “People” as to its findings?! Fact: Acknowledgement of NIH grants and US scientists’ involvement in gain of function research that led to the global “pandemic,” make the US Government equally liable with China for the resulting destruction of the global economy and lost lives.
Republican Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst went viral on social media after users mocked a poster board she presented while addressing the Senate on Wednesday.
Ernst used the graphic to criticize the policies of the left ahead of President Biden's first address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday night.
But these are not actually the policies of the Democratic Party, which is why she was mocked. Her whole poster was one big straw man.
Ernst's poster presentation, titled "Liberal Fantasy Island," was emblazoned with slogans such as "abolish ICE," "end the filibuster now," "expand the court" and "defund the police."
Shortly after Ernst's remarks were televised, a social media user photoshopped the poster to poke fun at her presentation. The edited version featured altered slogans such as "abolish lasagna," "only gay people get to go to restaurants" and "Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," an ode to the hit Amazon Prime show.
"Abolish lasagna" began trending on Twitter, causing the social platform to provide an explainer.
However, the trend still sparked confusion among some users, leading fact-checking website Snopes to create a page dispelling the notion that Ernst's poster actually called for abolishing lasagna.
In an interview on Fox News, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) dismissed President Joe Biden’s new vaccine mandates as an effort to divert attention away from the twentieth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan.
Ernst made the comments on America Reports, hosted by John Roberts and Sandra Smith. Roberts remarked that the business roundtable, representing a lot of larger companies, was “applauding vaccine mandates,” but there were differences of opinion.
The Senate has never held a trial for a former president.
“The impeachment power exists to protect the Nation from the harm that an incumbent president might inflict upon the Nation were he to remain in office, not to vindicate political grievances after a president has left office,”
Graham wrote in a letter to Schumer over the past weekend.
On Sunday, [Harvard Law professor emeritus] Dershowitz—who represented Trump during his Senate impeachment trial in early 2020—said a post-presidential impeachment trial isn’t supported by the Constitution.
“It will be unconstitutional, but that probably won’t bother the senators,” Dershowitz told Fox News on Sunday. “The Constitution is very clear. The subject, the object, the purpose of impeachment is to remove a sitting president. And there are two precedents. One is very obvious. When President Nixon resigned in anticipation of being impeached and removed, there was no effort to impeach him after he left office.”
McDaniel is inviting roughly a dozen potential 2024 presidential candidates to the RNC's January meeting in Amelia Island, Fla. — the most explicit move she's made yet to show that the committee will be impartial going forward and not simply an extension of Trump’s political machine, even as he openly mulls a comeback bid.
The list of would-be candidates invited to speak includes South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, and former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley. Vice President Mike Pence, another potential contender, is planning to attend. Trump is also invited, though spokespersons declined to say whether he’d be going.
With Trump leaving office, the party organization is confronting a predicament: How to gingerly detach itself from the soon-to-be-ex-president — who has wielded vast control over the GOP apparatus for four years — as he plots his own political future. While McDaniel has been touting Trump’s endorsement as she runs for reelection as RNC chair, she has taken pains to privately reassure top Republicans that she would be an unbiased arbiter in the next nomination fight.
I just watched Senator Ernst, while posing a question to Judge Amy Coney Barrett, attempt to frame the senate Democrats' position that ACB is unfit for a position on the Supreme Court as an intolerance for diversity of thought.
All I have to say about that, is: human rights are not up for debate. It's not a mere theoretical difference of opinion that we can all smile over. I respect your opinion about the best baseball team in the league. I don't respect a position that eliminates human rights.
