It’s only been a week since he left office and Donald Trump is already making plans for his next steps. 

He is, no doubt, the man with a plan. 

Trump met with House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday to discuss a plan for republicans to take back the House in 2022. 

McCarthy said it was a “very good and cordial” meeting, where he welcomed Trump’s support in promoting GOP House candidates in the next election, Fox News reports. 

“House Republicans and the Trump administration achieved historic results for all Americans,” he said in a statement. “We were able to do this because we listened to and understood the concerns of our fellow citizens that had long been ignored.” 

“Today, President Trump committed to helping elect Republicans in the House and Senate in 2022,” he continued. “A united conservative movement will strengthen the bonds of our citizens and uphold the freedoms our country was founded on.” 

“President Trump has agreed to work with Leader McCarthy on helping the Republican Party to become a majority in the House,” according to a statement from the Trump-aligned Save America Pac. “They worked very well together in the last election and picked up at least 15 seats when most predicted it would be the opposite. They will do so again, and the work has already started.” 

Despite losing the Senate and White House, republicans managed to flip a whopping 13 House seats from blue to red. And, they could pick up a 15th seat in New York in a race between republican Claudia Tenney and democrat Anthony Brandisi that has yet to be decided, Fox News reports. Democrats hold a slim 221-211 advantage in the House, putting republicans in a good spot to pick up seats during the midterms, which traditionally favor the party opposite the president. 

McCarthy shared a promising message following the meeting. 

“United and ready to win in ‘22,” he tweeted. 

Despite the fallout from the Capitol riot on January 6, McCarthy’s meeting with Trump signifies that republicans simply aren’t ready to sever all ties with Trump. Though there are some outliers, a majority of republican leaders in Congress have rejected impeaching the president, after letting the dust settle.

    We will have to rid ourselves of the Dominion machines for Republicans to ever have a chance to win an election again

    At the very least the dominion machines will have to have an actual air gap from the internet and results manually inputted with fingers and observers. The police must be given instructions if they remove a GOP observer, a Democrat observer must go with them! They leave in pairs. The other party’s should be identified as right or left and opposite of equal size leaves with them too. Anything less that should be worth a charge of election interference as should keeping opposing party’s from being with in visual sight of ballots being processed which is 1/2 an arms length.
    The people working together should expect to be working close and doing their jobs to protect the integrity of our election, not sway who wins it!
    If adjudicator’s can change ballots they must also have representation from two party’s and a requirement of two key strokes one from each to verify it was correctly decided!
    one additional safe guard since the ballots are handled to much.
    Pick randomly one major issue per work shift or hour and divide as forms are processed who they’re for, comparing the machine count to the physical representation, possibly a manual count to make sure the tabulators and adjudicator’s are doing their jobs correctly.
    Checks upon checks.
    Finally the issue in Wisconsin was reopening polls! That allowed people to rush in and change the out come, a lot of States used various methods to change when voting would end altering the outcome of the vote. Voting by mail offers many opportunities to cast doubt on who won. We need one election day.

BLM Leader Vows to ‘Abolish’ NYC Mayor De Blasio’s Vax Passports

Says ‘Free Pass to Racism’,  ‘Modern-Day Freedom Papers’

Chivona Newsome

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio’s vaccine mandates and consequential vaccine passports necessary to enter most bars and restaurants in the city are being dubbed racist by a Black Lives Matter leader.

Chivona Newsome co-founded the Greater New York Chapter of BLM and also ran as a congressional candidate in 2020 for New York’s 15th district sent a statement to Fox News explaining the claims of racism.

“Although Mayor Bill De Blasio ran on progressives values, nothing in his tenure will attest to his campaign promises,” Newsome stated. “The September 13th vaccine mandate is racist and specifically targets Black New Yorkers. The vaccination passports are modern-day Freedom Papers, which limit the free will of Black people.”

De Blasio’s mandates went into effect September 13, ordering indoor establishments making patrons show proof of vaccination before entering. Businesses can face fines up to $5,000 for not complying. On September 20, the Mayor’s office announced it had already issued 3,200 warnings to businesses in the first week.

Newsome continued, “The vaccination mandates infringe upon the civil liberties of the Black community…It’s more than where we can dine or enjoy entertainment, it will result in loss of income. As of Monday, September 27, Black health care workers and educators will lose their jobs.”

Newsome’s concerns for minorities and repercussions such as losing jobs is the same reasoning hundreds of groups and unions across the country have stood up against Biden’s vaccine mandate. Postal workers, Police unions, Nurse Unions and Hospital administrators are all amongst those expressing outrage.

Newsome says De Blasio’s actions are a direct attack on black Americans, and he “chose to disenfranchise and force the very people who elected him into poverty and second-class citizenship.”

She explained that de Blasio is, “fully aware of the hesitancy and distrust people of African descent have about vaccination and their interactions with government and law enforcement.” Newsome concluded, “the vaccination passport will not be a free pass to racism. Our organization pledges to demonstrate until the vaccine mandate is abolished.”

Democrat Pushes Back On False Claim Border Patrol Agents Whipped Migrants

Henry Cuellar

During a CNN interview on Tuesday, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) pushed back on false claims by other Democrat lawmakers that U.S. Border Patrol agents riding horses were swinging whips at illegal immigrants trying to cross the southern border.

CNN anchor Victor Blackwell pushed the false information during, saying the Border Patrol agents were hitting migrants with what “appears to use what looks like a rope or a lasso” and then asking Cuellar for his reaction.

“Well, you know, certainly, we got to make sure we treat all the immigrants with respect and dignity,” Cuellar responded. “But I will say this, Border Patrol has had those horse brigades for a while, they’ve had them for a while, number one. Number two, they don’t carry whips. And they do not carry lassos. I think the picture you’re talking about, at least the one I’ve seen is the rein, the rein of the horses.”

“And should those be used? Should those be used should even if it is a rein?” Blackwell asked.

“Well, again, if there was a problem, it should be investigated,” Cuellar responded. “And I think that’s it, but we cannot paint the Border Patrol with that same type of paintbrush. Look, you know, what are they supposed to do? Just stand there and let everybody come in? You know, they’re supposed to be enforcing the law, but again, as to how you enforce the law, you got to make sure you treat people with dignity and respect.”

The CNN interview came after a video surfaced of illegal immigrants attempting to evade U.S. Border Patrol agents on horses and run into the country. In response, many Democrats falsely declared that the agents were using whips on the migrants – despite the fact that Border Patrol agents do not carry whips and there being zero evidence any of the agents struck any of the migrants.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), for example, tweeted, “The images of inhumane treatment of Haitian migrants by Border Patrol—including the use of whips—are unacceptable They are fleeing violence and natural disaster and seeking protection in our country The Administration must uphold our refugee laws and stop Title 42 deportations.”
