With a higher certainty than the recovery rate of Covid-19 for people under 40-years-old, I am accusing the House Republicans led by Kevin McCarthy of lying about why the Capitol Security Bill was allowed to pass last week. They could have blocked it but chose not to, likely because of the optics of obstructing a bill that would help fund police in Washington DC.
Article from The Liberty Daily.
I cannot be certain of the motives, but I’m certain about the action itself. Here’s the scenario: Rep. Ken Calvert from California was supposed to file a “proxy vote” on behalf of Rep. John Carter from Texas. Meanwhile, Rep. Daniel Webster from Florida refused to submit a proxy vote out of principle and failed to make it back to DC in time to vote in person.
That’s two votes, both of which would have been against the Bill. It ended up passing 213-212. If either the Carter or Webster vote had made it in, the tie would have resulted in the Bill not passing. Pretty odd coincidence that Republicans could have easily stopped passage of the Bill if anyone in leadership any of the three Congressman who were assigned the dunce cap for this particular exercise had actually done their jobs. Instead, the Bill “miraculously” passed as if the hand of Lucifer had reached up from the pits of Hades to influence events in Washington DC.
But it wasn’t Lucifer. It wasn’t dumb luck. It wasn’t incompetent leadership, absent-minded Congressmen, or an idiotic Congressman who willfully cost tax-payers $1.9 billion for the sake of preserving his “principles.” This happened exactly as it was supposed to happen. The House Republican leadership’s plan was executed like clockwork.
Let’s look at the feeble excuses. First, let’s look at Webster’s alleged principles getting in the way of serving the people who voted for him. According to Newsmax:
“Rep. Webster missed votes because he was unavoidably detained in the district and wasn’t able to make it to D.C. in time to make the votes,” a spokesperson for Webster said. “He likely would have opposed the bill — he didn’t proxy vote on principle as he is on the record opposing proxy-voting and was part of the original lawsuit challenging its constitutionality.”
Now, let’s look at the alleged reason that Calvert claimed, his “senior moment.” According to The Epoch Times:
A member of the House didn’t cast a proxy vote for a fellow congressman on the Democrat-backed $1.9 billion Capitol security spending bill because it slipped his mind, according to a spokesperson.
Reps. Cori Bush (D-Mo.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) voted no. Reps. Jamaal Bowman ( D-N.Y.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) voted present. All other Democrats voted to support it.
The bill would reimburse the National Guard for costs incurred when troops were deployed to the Capitol earlier this year, provide Capitol Police with overtime pay, and other resources. It would also create a response force that would aid Capitol Police during a crisis, as well as fortify the doors and windows of the Capitol building itself.
And therein lies the reason I believe they botched the blocking of the bill intentionally. Imagine the optics of House Republicans siding with “The Squad” to essentially defund police. The reason this bill needs to be opposed is because it’s a whole lot of money without appropriate designations for where it’s going. In other words, it’s a standard Democrat bill. That’s not why every Republican other than the two morons who didn’t get their votes in were opposed to it. Nevertheless, the optics would have been awful with the six Justice Democrats radical progressives opposed to the Bill over police funding.
Again, I could be wrong on their motives but I’m not wrong on the actual events that took place. If Republican leadership was truly unaware that they were going to miss by one vote, they don’t need to be mathematicians to realize they had a vote to block it literally sitting in one of their member’s pocket.
They were not unaware (though if they were, they shouldn’t be representing anyone in DC or anywhere else). They had a chance to stop this expensive Bill and they essentially threw the game.
In the real world, when someone “accidentally” loses $1.9 billion of shareholders’ money, they don’t keep their jobs. In DC, losing $1.9 billion of taxpayer dollars should have the same result. Everyone involved in these “mistakes” must resign.
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
