house Intelwars Mandate Masks Pelosi refuse

Republicans refuse to wear masks on House floor in protest of ?Pelosi mandate

Several Republicans refused to wear their masks on the House floor Tuesday afternoon in a rebellion against Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) refusal to lift the mandate, despite the threat of hefty fines for the rule violation.

What are the details?

Politico reported ahead of the protest that Rep. Brian Mast (R-Fla.) announced during a GOP conference meeting earlier in the day that he is “done” wearing masks, and will refuse to wear one on the House floor.

Mast confirmed his plan to the outlet, and said “many” of his colleagues agreed to do the same.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) tweeted from the House floor later, “We’ve had enough. We are refusing to wear our masks on the floor during this vote in spite of Pelosi’s threat to take $500 from each of us. Her rule is not based on science. All you need to know is the mask rule has only ever applied to members when they can be seen on TV !”

Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) later tweeted out a photo of herself along with Reps. Mary Miller (R-Ill.), Ralph Norman (R-S.C.) and Massie declaring, “#FreeYourFace Masks are oppressive and nothing but a political tool. End the oppression!”

Greene also posted a picture of herself along with seven other Republicans outside the steps of the Capitol, tweeting, “Proud to join these Patriots for a peaceful protest on the House floor against mask mandates!”

Journalist Jordan Schactel reported that other GOP members who joined the protest included Reps. Lauren Boebert (Colo.), Chip Roy (Texas), Bob Good (Va.), Beth Van Duyne (Texas), and Greg Steube (Fla.).

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is expected to introduce a motion on the topic on Wednesday, but sources told Politico that the “language is still being worked out.”

What’s the background?

Pelosi insists on keeping her mask mandate in place — threatening members with $500 fines on a first offense and $2,500 for a second — despite the CDC announcing last week that fully vaccinated Americans can stop wearing masks indoors in most places.

The speaker’s move was condemned by several GOP lawmakers, including Mast, who tweeted that her action was “not about science” and “all about power.”

The Hill pointed out that the Senate never had a mask mandate in place, and both Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Senate Minority Leaders Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) ditched their masks following the CDC’s new guidance.

Alaska Couple FBI Intelwars laptop Pelosi raid

Alaska couple says FBI raided their home with guns drawn, interrogated them in search for Pelosi’s laptop

An Alaska couple says the FBI raided their home with guns drawn at them this week in the search for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) laptop, which is apparently still missing after it was reported stolen following the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

According to the couple, Paul and Marilyn Hueper, the feds left after hours of interrogation, in what the Huepers say is a case of mistaken identity.

What are the details?

The Huepers were at the rally that took place on Jan. 6 prior to the Capitol riots, but were only in Washington, D.C., to “peacefully protest” and never went inside the building, they say.

They told KSRM-AM host Bob Bird on “Bird’s Eye View” Thursday that they were awoken at their home at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, when Paul walked out of the couple’s bedroom to find “seven guns pointing at him and his wife,” the Alaska Watchmen reported.

The agents reportedly handcuffed the Huepers and separated them, interrogating them individually for roughly three hours before releasing them and leaving.

The Watchmen reported that “it appears the FBI were most interested in Marilyn,” whom they presented with a photo of another woman who was wearing a similar coat as the one Marilyn was wearing on Jan. 6, and had a similar hairstyle.

Both the Huepers separately told agents that the woman shown in the picture — taken on surveillance footage inside the Capitol — was not Marilyn. The unknown woman was not wearing the same clothes as Marilyn, who said the other woman was wearing “an ugly sweater” that she would never wear.

Paul added, “My wife is much better looking than that.”

Marilyn recalled that during her interrogation, agents revealed why they were at the home. “They said, ‘We’re here for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop,'” she told KSRM. “So, I guess it was stolen and it is still at large.”

The agents seized laptops and cell phones from the Heupers, but neither have been charged with any crimes, according to the Anchorage Daily News.

A spokeswoman for the FBI in Anchorage did not elaborate, but told the outlet in its request for comment, “I can confirm that April 28, the FBI was conducting a court-authorized law enforcement activity at the location you described.” She added, “we just can’t discuss the details or existence of an investigation.”

While the Huepers are considering hiring legal counsel over the ordeal and feel the need to know their rights after being shocked by the way they were treated by the FBI, Marilyn has found some humor in the situation.

She said, “I still think it’s funny that they want to take me as someone who was actually there (at the Capitol), instead of lost, eating hot dogs at the other end of the Mall.”

Anything else?

Back in January, another woman was identified by the FBI as being suspected of taking Pelosi’s laptop, after a former romantic interest told authorities that she took the device with the intention of selling it to Russia’s foreign intelligence service.

But her attorney told The Philadelphia Inquirer his client did not have the laptop, and authorities did not find it in a search. The outlet reported that “it remains unclear whether Pelosi’s laptop was ever in [her] possession at all.”

Steven Crowder: Impeachment trial is about the First Amendment, NOT Trump

The Senate voted 56-44 on Tuesday to move to a trial to impeach former President Donald Trump. In this clip, Steven Crowder described the trial as an “attack on the First Amendment rather than being about Trump.”

Crowder believes the Democrat Party [and some Republicans] are willing to criminalize conservatives for saying something that is
“unpopular.” He believes the impeachment of a former president is about publicly punishing someone for questioning the system that is in place.

Capitol conspiracy Capitol riots Hillary Clinton Intelwars Pelosi Trump putin

Clinton, Pelosi float conspiracy theory that Trump and Putin worked together to plan the Capitol riot

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi are floating an unsubstantiated conspiracy theory that President Trump worked with Russian President Vladimir Putin to coordinate the riot at the U.S. Capitol and are calling for commission to unearth the facts.

What are the details?

During a bonus episode of Clinton’s podcast, “You and Me Both,” released Monday, the two discussed the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol and took turns theorizing Putin’s potential role in the event.

“I hope historically we will find out who he’s beholden to, who pulls his strings,” Clinton said, first raising the notion. “I would love to see his phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol.”

“But we now know that not just him, but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy,” Clinton continued before asking Pelosi: “Do you think we need a 9/11-type commission to investigate and report everything that they can pull together and explain what happened?”

Pelosi responded: “I do. To your point of who is he beholden to, as I’ve said over and over, as I said to him in that picture with my blue suit as I was leaving, what I was saying to him as I was pointing, rudely, at him: ‘With you, Mr. President, all roads lead to Putin.”

“I don’t know what Putin has on him politically, financially, or personally, but what happened last week was a gift to Putin, because Putin wants to undermine democracy in our country and throughout the world. And these people, unbeknownst to them, maybe, are Putin puppets. They were doing Putin’s business when they did that at the incitement of an insurrection by the president of the United States,” Pelosi added.

The speaker then once again agreed that a 9/11-type commission should be launched regarding the incident and noted there is “strong support” in Congress for such a measure.

Anything else?

The wild theory, despite having no factual basis at present, is not exactly surprising coming from the two Democratic political figures.

Since the dawn of Trump’s political ascendancy, he has been dogged by Democratic claims that he was in cahoots with the Russians to undermine the United States. Such accusations culminated during Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation into Russian influence during the 2016 election.

Mueller’s investigation, however, to the ire of Democrats, concluded that there was no evidence that Trump or members of his team “conspired or coordinated with the Russian government.” Evidently, Clinton and Pelosi are still not convinced.

Strangely enough, it was reported last year that in July 2016, U.S. intelligence officials had become aware of claims that Clinton had approved a smear campaign against Trump, attempting to tie him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee.

democratic party Dumpster fire election house democrats Intelwars Pelosi

‘It’s a dumpster fire’: House Democrats reportedly pointing fingers after stunning election losses

There was a significant amount of infighting and finger-pointing going on among Democrats in the House of Representatives Wednesday as the majority suffered a stunning defeat all across the country on Election Day, Politico reported.

Only days before, the outlet noted, top Democrats including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) mused about the party’s chances to expand their majority in the chamber by up to a dozen seats. Polls in races around the nation showed Democrats up overall and making plays in Republican strongholds like Texas.

But as votes began to pour in Tuesday, Democratic hopes and dreams were quickly dashed. TheBlaze’s Chris Pandolfo noted that “Republicans won upset victories over several Democratic incumbents” and are poised to “gain as much as 10 seats in a year the media raised the possibility they’d lose as many as 15 or more.”

Consequently, the mood among Democrats around Capitol Hill was much less chipper and several members began pointing fingers. Here’s more from Politico:

Even with tens of thousands of ballots still to be counted, shell-shocked Democratic lawmakers, strategists and aides privately began trying to pin the blame: The unreliable polls. The GOP’s law-and-order message amid a summer of unrest. The “hidden Trump voters.” The impeachment hangover. The lack of a coronavirus stimulus deal.

Some corners of the party were also beginning to question the message and tactics at the top, with several Democrats predicting — and some even demanding — a significant overhaul within the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, including possibly even ousting chairwoman Cheri Bustos, whose Illinois race has yet to be called.

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) told reporters, “There’s still a lot of uncertainty. I would say the high expectations that a number of pollsters and pundits created obviously have not been met. We’ll have a Democratic majority in the House, and it remains to be seen how big that will be.”

But some lawmakers were far less subtle: “It’s a dumpster fire,” said one Democrat, who remained anonymous.

Rep. Henry Cuellar, a senior Blue Dog Democrat in South Texas pointed to his party’s failures in rural areas outside big cities.

“If we don’t change the strategy, it’s going to be the same in 2022,” he predicted.

There is reportedly speculation that Pelosi’s leadership is in question ahead of Congress’ return after the election. A poor performance during the 2020 general election might finally spark a change at the top for Democrats.

Almost sinful Coronavirus response COVID-19 COVID-19 Pandemic Insist on the truth Intelwars Nancy Pelosi Pelosi Pelosi trump Politico Ppe protective equipment Reopen Report Sinful Trump coronavirus Trump coronavirus briefings White house coronavirus

‘Almost sinful’: Pelosi condemns Trump’s coronavirus response and says Dems must ‘insist upon the truth’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) came just short of condemning President Donald Trump on spiritual grounds Monday, calling his administration’s failure to administer testing to all Americans and address the country’s supposed shortage in personal protective equipment “almost sinful,” Politico reported.

During a private conference call with Democratic colleagues Monday, Pelosi unleashed on the president also calling his intentions to reopen the country at the end of the month dangerous, according to Politico.

“The more misrepresentations he puts out there, the more it obscures the truth,” the House speaker reportedly told fellow Democrats. “We have to insist upon the truth — what they’re saying is not knowledge, is not facts, is not real.”

On Monday during a White House press briefing, Trump expressed hopes that America could soon relax social distancing guidelines and reopen the country for business “ahead of schedule.” The president’s “30 Days to Slow the Spread” social distancing guidelines are set to end on April 30.

In the Politico report, Pelosi repeatedly resorted to attacking Trump during the two-hour call, asking colleagues to help combat the messaging coming from the Trump administration. She doubled down calling the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic “a complete failure” — and insisted to colleagues that “we cannot let them lie about it.”

President Trump has resisted the onslaught of attacks coming from Democratic lawmakers and left-wing media members claiming that his administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been a failure. Instead, the president has characterized the federal government’s response to the ongoing crisis and cooperation with state officials as “unbelievable.”

Speaker Pelosi has received her own share of criticism during the country’s ongoing response to the pandemic. Late last month as Congress moved quickly to get a coronavirus relief package to passage, Pelosi thwarted and stalled the process by bringing a “wish list” of unrelated demands into the discussion. Then she lied about it.

Congress Corona Coronavirus Coronavirus explained Coronavirus outbreak Coronavirus Pandemic Coronavirus prevention COVID-19 Covid-19 outbreak Covid-19 updates Intelwars MSNBC Live Msnbc news Nancy Pelosi news outbreak pandemic Pelosi Pelosi interview Politics quarantine US NEWS Video Virus Protection

Nancy Pelosi declares she’s launching a committee to supervise Trump’s coronavirus response, claims it will ‘unify our country’ and promote ‘bipartisanship’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced that she is launching a new House select committee to oversee the Trump administration’s response to the global coronavirus pandemic.

Pelosi made the announcement on a conference call with reporters Thursday, according to CNBC. On the call, Pelosi noted that House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) will lead the committee — yes, that’s the congressman who said the stimulus bill was “a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.”

The committee, Pelosi said, will be tasked with supervising the implementation of the $2 trillion relief package, “root[ing] out waste, fraud and abuse” and “protect[ing] against price-gouging, profiteering and political favoritism.”

It will also oversee that the Trump administration’s response to the outbreak follows in step with advice from leading health experts and is “based on the best possible science.”

“We face a deadly virus and a battered economy with millions of Americans suddenly out of work,” Pelosi said. “Congress has taken an important step in leading this crisis by passing three bills with over $2 trillion in emergency relief. We need to ensure those dollars are spent carefully and effectively.”

Unity and bipartisanship?

In an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell later Thursday, Pelosi argued that the committee was launched now, rather than after the fact, in order to “unify our country” and promote “transparency, bipartisanship, and accountability.”

Pelosi also sought to allay concerns that it was a political move, arguing the new committee’s aim is oversight — not investigation.

Republicans aren’t buying it

According to CNBC, White House spokesman Steven Groves assured that those on the White House coronavirus task force are “committing 100% of their time, energy, and resources to ending the current crisis” and added that “any attempt to politicize the crisis even before it has ended is dangerous.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) also criticized Pelosi’s action, saying the formulation of a panel to oversee implementation of the stimulus is redundant since oversight mechanisms are already built in.

McCarthy took issue with Clyburn being the point man for the committee, as well.

Ed Morrissey, writing for Hot Air, raised concerns about the timing of the move, suggesting that the select committee could easily become “a back door” to another Democratic investigation.

“The whole idea sounds rather peculiar, under the circumstances. If this is to be truly focused on the here and now in a bipartisan manner, it’s not off to a good start,” he concluded.

bill Clyburn Coronavirus Coronavirus america Coronavirus outbreak Coronavirus response Coronavirus us Crenshaw Intelwars Jim clyburn mcconnell Pelosi schumer stimulus stimulus package Tremendous opportunity

Dem Rep. Clyburn told colleagues the coronavirus stimulus bill is ‘a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision’

Democrats on Capitol Hill have now twice-rejected an economic stimulus packaged aimed at aiding Americans and businesses hurt by the coronavirus shutdown measures, as Republicans claim that their colleagues on the other side are attempting to cram a wish list of unrelated demands into the bill.

Adding fuel to the fire, news began circulating last week that House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) had reportedly told colleagues that the bill provided “a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.”

Clyburn’s comments came during a conference call last Thursday featuring more than 200 Democrats, in which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y) allegedly pushed for environmental measures and increased collective bargaining powers to be included in the stimulus package.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell thrashed Democrats for their partisan politics on the Senate floor Monday.

“Here are some of the items on the Democratic wish list, over which they choose to block this legislation last night,” he said. “Tax credits for solar energy and wind energy. Provisions to force employers to give special new treatment to big labor. And listen to this: New emissions standards for the airlines. Are you kidding me? … Democrats won’t let us fund hospitals or save small businesses unless they get to dust off the Green New Deal.”

Texas Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw also slammed Democrats for playing games while Americans are suffering under economic distress.

“This will go down as one of the most cynical, disgusting, malevolent actions in history,” he wrote on Twitter. “Millions are losing jobs while they play these games.”

Clyburn also made headlines last Sunday when he told “Axios on HBO” that President Trump is a racist who has hired white supremacists to work for him in the White House, and warned that America “could very well go the way of Germany in the 1930s.”
