HIGH ON HER OWN SUPPLY? Pelosi moves to federally legalize weed while neglecting COVID aid

After months of gridlock on Capitol Hill over a coronavirus stimulus package, Nancy Pelosi is showing America what matters most to her: cannabis and big cats. 

Democratic leadership announced that a bill to federally legalize marijuana will be taken to the House floor Wednesday, while another bill will be reviewed to ban breeding and private ownership of tigers and other big cats. 

Tiger King and cannabis before coronavirus stimulus for families that are suffering? 

Check your priorities, Nancy.  

Republicans, many of whom are big critics of marijuana legalization, took to Twitter to blast Pelosi for her backwards priorities. 

“This week, your House Democrat majority is tackling the tough issues by holding a vote on legalizing pot and banning tiger ownership,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wrote Monday. “Nothing for small businesses. Nothing for reopening schools. Nothing on battling the pandemic. Just cannabis and cats.” 

After speaking with the media’s president-elect Joe Biden, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said it is a priority to get a stimulus package passed during Congress’ lame-duck session. 

“Secretary Mnuchin said he would be reviewing the proposal Leader Schumer and I made to Leader McConnell and Leader McCarthy last night and the bipartisan Senate proposal unveiled today,” Pelosi said in a statement Tuesday night. “Additional COVID relief is long overdue and must be passed in this lame duck session.”

But, instead, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said the chamber will be considering multiple marijuana bills, including the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act, and voting will take place Wednesday through Friday.

    I can’t believe it! Pelosi actually doing something RIGHT! The Federal government never had authority to outlaw marijuana in the first place. (Remember how the US had to amend the constitution to get authority to outlaw alcohol? Same thing…) I don’t use the stuff and have no desire to — but the Feds have no right to criminalize it.

    Frankly right now no American who voted for our president gives a crap about any of this right now. We’re fighting to save the guy we voted for and to SAVE AMERICA FROM GLOBALISM and China, but where are the Republicans helping any of us with this? Its so obvious our chances of winning with the entire govt corruption that has spread like a cancer thru every agency and elected officials are so small. The ONLY way I see we win this is thru the Supreme Court, or a second civil war….and I do pray that we won’t have to do the latter of the two, but there are those preparing for that scenario I’m sure. I’ve always know American politics were corrupt but this is beyond cancerous. I feel like our only chance is Divine intervention…God bless every patriot out there fighting to save our great country.

    The Democrats are unlikely to lift a finger to help desperate Americans until ‘Old Joe’ is safely wheeled up the White House ramp. That way they can blame all the current suffering and economic disaster on “Orange Man Bad” and emerge as benevolent saviors with some pitiful relief package come February. Not to say I’ve been happy with Trump’s performance to date. The moment his campaign saw the election was being stolen he should have declared martial law, froze the process, and rerun the whole thing with in-person voting and paper receipts. Everyone talks about how important our constitutional republic is, but how many are actually willing to defend it?

Oregon Schools ‘Staffing Crisis’ So Bad State Temporarily Allowing Substitute Teachers Without Degrees

Published

Liberal policies and mandates surrounding the coronavirus pandemic for over a year and a half have resulted in a mass labor shortage across a plethora of industries. Most recently with the vaccine mandates, individuals are either quitting or being forced into a leave of absence. Education is among the affected fields, leaving children without teachers.

In Oregon, officials said the “extraordinary shortage” of substitute teachers is also so bad, they have been forced to relinquish standards. The Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission announced it will temporarily be dropping the requirement for teachers to, well, be licensed to teach.

CNN reports:

“The temporary rule, which is set to expire March 31, allows substitute teacher applicants without a bachelor’s degree to be sponsored by a school district, which would also provide them with enhanced support administrative supervision, according to a joint statement from Dr. Anthony Rosilez, the commission’s executive director, and Erika Bare, the commission chair.”

In December of 2019, the state had 8,290 licensed substitute teachers. By September 18, 2021, the number was down to almost half at 4,738. The temporary administrative order says without more teachers, classes will be “combined to unacceptable levels or not offered at all, inflicting irreparable harm on schoolchildren.”

In the joint statement from Rosilez and Bare, they explained the reason behind the state’s conundrum: “while the data we have at this point is primarily anecdotal, the COVID pandemic has been a primary factor in the reduced supply.”

Elizabeth Thiel, president of the Portland Association of Teachers says Oregon is experiencing a “staffing crisis” exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. “It’s not just substitutes that we don’t have enough of. It’s classroom teachers, it’s administrators and custodians and bus drivers and education assistants and nutrition workers and paraprofessionals” added Thiel. “Every job type we have in our schools, we’re short.”

Rep. Tlaib Caught on Video Admitting She is Only Wearing a Mask Because of ‘Republican Tracker’ Filming Her

Published

Rashida Tlaib

Democrat and member of the “Squad” Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) was filmed at an event explaining that she was only wearing a mask for one reason. It was not for safety, not for fear of spreading COVID-19 to the vulnerable and weak, not for fear of getting a variant herself, and not for “stopping the spread.” No. It was only because a “Republican tracker” was in her presence.

At an event in Detroit, Tlaib can be seen among a group outside, and one gentleman, who was not wearing a mask, thought Tlaib was upset that he was not masked. “Oh, my bad. Sorry” the man said.

Quickly explaining herself and making sure there was zero confusion as to her position, she quickly comforted the man saying, “oh no, not you.” She then pulls down her mask to further explain, “I was only doing it because I got a Republican, uh, tracker following me” as she appeared to be pointing in the direction of the “tracker.”

She then popped her mask back on and turned to walk away. National Review reports: “Tlaib was exiting an event on Monday with Housing and Urban Development secretary Marcia Fudge, who visited housing developments in Detroit while touting the Biden administration’s proposed $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.” The video was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

This summer Tlaib chastised Republican Senator Rand Paul for voicing resistance to some Centers for Disease Control and Prevention measures including mask-wearing mandates. The same day, video surfaced of Tlaib partying at an indoor wedding maskless.

Tlaib is one of many Democrats who have acted in complete hypocrisy to their own mandates. San Francisco mayor London Breed was filmed at a crowded indoor bar listening to music where no one was wearing masks. She justified her violation by stating she wanted to dance and “I was feeling the spirit.”
