House Democrat votes against advancing party's $3.5T plan
Aris Folley 12 hrs ago
Democratic Rep. Scott Peters (Calif.) joined Republicans in voting against advancing his party's $3.5 trillion social spending plan, as House leadership aims to vote on the package as early as next week.
Peters, a member of the House Budget Committee, voted with 16 Republicans against advancing the measure from the panel on the Saturday afternoon.
However, the legislation was able to advance from the Democratic-led committee with 20 votes.
Peters said he was "concerned" about the pace the party is moving to draft the legislation, which he said would likely not be adopted in the Senate as the current text stands "without major changes."
He went on to voice further concerns about some of the spending levels in the measure and said he has "some other objections to the bill that have not been resolved but could be if given more time."

Rats Leaving the Ship
Marc Elias’s recent departure from the Perkins Coie law firm is related to an investigation by special counsel John Durham into the origins of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) surveillance of former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, Amanda Milius, director of The Plot Against the President, said on Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
Durham’s investigation led to a grand jury’s indictment of Michael Sussman, another lawyer who also recently resigned from Perkins Coie, for making a false statement to the FBI. Sussman is alleged to have lied about his representation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign when he requested a meeting with the FBI’s general counsel to accuse the Trump Organization of “covert communications” with a Russian bank.
“Democrat election lawyer Marc Elias, a key figure in the ‘Russia collusion’ hoax, has parted ways with the Perkins Coie law firm, ahead of the anticipated release of Special Counsel John Durham’s report into the origins of the Russia inquiry,” Breitbart News reported August 22.
Milius told Breitbart News Daily, “Durham is finally coming out with some stuff, and anybody that’s confused or wants some clarity on why the first indictment is so huge about Perkins Coie — the law firm that represents the DNC — our movie, The Plot Against the President, literally outlines this entire thing. I’m actually extremely excited about the Durham stuff.”
“I had some conversations with [Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA)] about this that were very interesting. Watch the movie if you want to refresher. That’s your Russiagate refresher,” Milius continued.
“Perkins Coie, as far as non-government institutions go, [is] probably the most powerful group of people in the country. Mark Elias left a couple of weeks ago, which is very weird, and signifies that they know something’s up. I think that signals that there’s so much weight to this,” she stated.
“I don’t want to get my hopes up entirely, because everybody’s like, ‘Oh, we’ve been waiting for your repercussions for Russiagate for so long, and nothing will ever happen.’ I agree, but if guys like Congressman Nunes — who is like the guru of this whole thing, he really understands this better than anybody — if he thinks that he likes what he sees from this, and that’s kind of what I’m getting [from him], then that gi
The #democrats have never cared about the "Aloha Spirit" or the #constitution for that matter. All they've cared about is power and control in #Hawaii , even looking back at the state's history it's quite clear. Ever since the overthrow of the #Monarchy , here they've been in power here, and what good have they done? Nothing I can think of.
The Bus system was done by Mayor Frank Fasi. They kicked him out of the Democratic Party, and even the Republicans didn't like him here (that's how un-Republican the Republicans in Hawaii are). Fasi wanted a Rail system. Neither the Dems nor the GOP wanted to support him.
Look now, there's a rail system that's being built, and they're struggling to finish it. Under Fasi, it would've been finished. Comes to show you something. The #Swamp here is wide and deeper than anyone thinks.

To date, very few treatments have been demonstrated to reduce the burden of morbidity and mortality from COVID-19. Although corticosteroids have been proven to reduce mortality in severe disease, there has been little convincing evidence on interventions that may prevent disease, reduce hospitalizations, and reduce the numbers of people progressing to critical disease and death.
Ivermectin is a well-known medicine that is approved as an antiparasitic by the World Health Organization and the US Food and Drug Administration. It is widely used in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to treat worm infections. Also used for the treatment of scabies and lice, it is one of the World Health Organization’s Essential Medicines. With total doses of ivermectin distributed apparently equaling one-third of the present world population,5 ivermectin at the usual doses (0.2–0.4 mg/kg) is considered extremely safe for use in humans. In addition to its antiparasitic activity, it has been noted to have antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties, leading to an increasing list of therapeutic indications.
Since the start of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, both observational and randomized studies have evaluated ivermectin as a treatment for, and as prophylaxis against, COVID-19 infection. A review by the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance summarized findings from 27 studies on the effects of ivermectin for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 infection, concluding that ivermectin “demonstrates a strong signal of therapeutic efficacy” against COVID-19. Another recent review found that ivermectin reduced deaths by 75%. Despite these findings, the National Institutes of Health in the United States recently stated that “there are insufficient data to recommend either for or against the use of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19," and the World Health Organization recommends against its use outside of clinical trials.
Ivermectin has exhibited antiviral activity against a wide range of RNA and some DNA viruses, for example, Zika, dengue, yellow fever, and others demonstrated specific action against SARS-CoV-2 in vitro with a suggested host-directed mechanism of action being the blocking of the nuclear import of viral proteins that suppress normal immune responses. However, the necessary cell culture EC50 may not be achievable in vivo. Other conjectured mechanisms include inhibition of SARS-CoV-2 3CLPro activity (a protease essential for viral replication), a variety of anti-inflammatory effects, and competitive binding of ivermectin with the viral S protein as shown in multiple in silico studies.
The latter would inhibit viral binding to ACE-2 receptors suppressing infection. Hemagglutination via viral binding to sialic acid receptors on erythrocytes is a recently propose
Guess what the three Democrats blocking lower medication prices have in common?

The three conservative Democratic lawmakers threatening to kill their party’s drug pricing legislation have raked in roughly $1.6m of campaign cash from donors in the pharmaceutical and health products industries. One of the lawmakers is the House’s single largest recipient of pharmaceutical industry campaign cash this election cycle, and another lawmaker’s immediate past chief of staff is now lobbying for drugmakers.
The threat from Democratic Representatives Kurt Schrader (Oregon), Scott Peters (California) and Kathleen Rice (New York) comes just as the pharmaceutical industry’s top lobbying group announced a seven-figure ad campaign to vilify the Democratic legislation, which aims to lower the cost of medicines for Americans now facing the world’s highest prescription drug prices.
Schrader and Peters are among the two biggest recent Democratic recipients of pharmaceutical industry donations
At issue is House Democrats’ initiative to let Medicare use its bulk purchasing power to negotiate lower prescription drug prices.
Senate parliamentarian deals blow to Dems' immigration push
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats can’t use their $3.5 trillion package bolstering social and climate programs for their plan to give millions of immigrants a chance to become citizens, the Senate’s parliamentarian said late Sunday, a crushing blow to what was the party’s clearest pathway in years to attaining that long-sought goal.
The decision by Elizabeth MacDonough, the Senate’s nonpartisan interpreter of its often enigmatic rules, is a damaging and disheartening setback for President Joe Biden, congressional Democrats and their allies in the pro-immigration and progressive communities. Though they said they'd offer her fresh alternatives, MacDonough's stance badly wounds their hopes of unilaterally enacting — over Republican opposition — changes letting several categories of immigrants gain permanent residence and possibly citizenship.
The parliamentarian opinion is crucial because it means the immigration provisions could not be included in an immense $3.5 trillion measure that’s been shielded from GOP filibusters. Left vulnerable to those bill-killing delays, which require 60 Senate votes to defuse, the immigration language has virtually no chance in the 50-50 Senate.
This Got Voted on July 21,2021
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will be stripped of emergency powers she used during the coronavirus pandemic after a 76-year-old law was repealed.
The GOP-led state House followed the Senate's lead on Wednesday in voting 60-48, largely along party lines, to support an Unlock Michigan petition seeking to eliminate the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act of 1945.
Whitmer, a Democrat, is unable to issue a veto after the state Supreme Court determined the law was unconstitutional. The repeal will not take effect until 91 days after the Legislature adjourns at the end of the year.
The Washington Examiner reached out to the governor's office for comment.
"The Michigan House approved the Unlock Michigan citizens' initiative to repeal the unconstitutional 1945 state law Gov. Gretchen Whitmer used to hold unilateral power over the people of Michigan during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your voices have been heard!" Michigan House Republicans tweeted following the vote.
MICHIGAN SENATE VOTES TO REPEAL GOVERNOR'S EMERGENCY LOCKDOWN POWERS
The "measure protects the fundamental structure of representation in government and is a win for democracy," said state Rep. Sue Allor.
Public employees, including teachers, in 26 states will face federal vaccination requirement
Maureen Groppe, USA TODAY 2 hrs ago
WASHINGTON –The actions President Joe Biden took this month to increase the number of workers who are vaccinated against COVID-19 will apply not just to most federal employees and larger businesses.
State and local government workers in 26 states, including teachers and school staff, will also be affected by the new workplace rules being written by Washington.
That includes workers in some states, like Arizona, that have banned vaccination requirements for public employees, setting up another clash between GOP-led states and the Democratic administration.
Tucson Mayor Regina Romero is eager for federal backup.
“It will be absolutely incredibly supportive of the city of Tucson and making sure that our public sector employees are not just protecting each other, but that we're also protecting the public that they interact with,” Romero, a Democrat, told USA TODAY.

Brnovich has also asked a court to declare the pending federal actions unconstitutional.
His complaint doesn’t mention the conflict with state law. Instead, Brnovich argues that U.S. citizens shouldn’t have to get the vaccine when people crossing the southern border illegally do not.
A spokesman for Arizona’s labor department said the agency cannot comment on the new rules until they are finalized.
The Untold Election Case that Should Have Stopped the Coup
Why Nancy Pelosi Had to Hurry on January 6
By Sidney Powell Among other conservatives that stood up for President Trump amidst the theft of the 2020 election, the legal team that became Defending the Republic challenged election results in multiple states and produced hundreds of pages of evidence of widespread election fraud. The Left’s mantra of “no evidence” is pure propaganda.
As the world watched, our four fraud cases across the disputed states were dismissed by each of four federal judges. The courts threw out the cases on the democrats “talking points”—technicalities many of which were pulled from the dustbin of legal history. Not a single of our cases was heard, despite hundreds of affidavits, statistical studies proving mathematical impossibilities, disappearance of mail ballots, mysterious appearances of perfect ballots, evidence of technological manipulation of the vote, and even video of women pulling suitcases from under tables after a staged pipe burst evacuation, and of ballot workers shoving the same ballots through the machines repeatedly coinciding with an impossible spike in votes all for Biden. All this was set against a backdrop of an unprecedented and inexplicable stoppage of vote counting across multiple states, followed by the appearance of hundreds of thousands of votes in block injections for Biden, somehow overcoming, by a slim margin, what was previously a massive shortage of Biden votes.
It appeared that the courts were afraid to hear the cases. Americans who had counted on our Article III courts to take up these issues to protect the Republic and our Constitution were left to wonder if this was the law, cowardice, or corruption in the courts. The entire Article III judiciary put its collective head in the sand on the most important issue to face the Republic. This was a constitutional crisis.
Cheney challenger Harriet Hageman: ‘She betrayed me’ and Wyoming
Thu, September 16, 2021, 7:00 AM
EXCLUSIVE: Harriet Hageman, the Trump-endorsed primary challenger to Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, used to support the incumbent. But now, she argues, Cheney’s continued criticism of former President Donald Trump has not only made her an outcast in the Republican Party but incapable of providing adequate representation for Wyoming and defense against liberal Democrats.
“She's really gone to war with him,” Hageman told the Washington Examiner in an interview this week. “She betrayed Wyoming. She betrayed me.”
Hageman is a senior litigation counsel for the nonprofit conservative-libertarian law firm New Civil Liberties Alliance, a former Republican National Committeewoman, and a former Wyoming gubernatorial candidate. She’s also a fourth-generation Wyomingite who grew up on a ranch.
