Report: House Staffers to Get Free Peloton Memberships with Taxpayer Dollars

Report: House Staffers to Get Free Peloton Memberships with Taxpayer Dollars

The House of Representatives is planning to give all its staffers free Peloton memberships using taxpayer dollars at the same time Americans are facing rising gas and food prices due to inflation, according to reports.

Beginning May 18, staffers can access the thousands of on-demand exercise classes for free, according to Politico, who first reported the news.

The “Premier Employee Benefit” includes a Peloton app membership and Peloton All-Access and would be made available to the estimated 10,000 people who work for the House of Representatives and about 2,300 Capitol Police officers, according to Fox News.

A source told Fox Business that the contract cost $10,000 in an upfront payment to Peloton and will cost an extra $10 per month for each staffer or officer that uses the benefit — which could equal $120,000 a month.

For the rest of America, an app membership costs $12.99 to access exercise classes, and an All-Access membership costs $24 per month through the end of 2022, according to the fitness company’s website. After 2022, the All-Access membership would go up to $39 dollars per month.

Reuters reported that the price for an All-Access membership is planning to go up even more, to $44 per month.

The Washington Free Beacon reported that the government contract with Peloton comes after the company set up a lobbying shop in Washington, DC.

The “Peloton Corporate Wellness” benefit for staffers comes as the nation faces a baby formula shortage, prompting desperate parents to drive long distances and ration baby formula and for some stores to limit customer purchases.

Fox News’s John Roberts tweeted, “Desperate parents can’t find baby forums — Congress has yet to take action…..BUT Lawmakers can now order liquor directly to their Capitol Hill offices [and] Lawmakers & staff will now have free access to the Peloton app.”

House Counsel Who Subpoenaed McCarthy For Jan. 6 Under Fire For Conflicts Of Interest

House Counsel Who Subpoenaed McCarthy For Jan. 6 Under Fire For Conflicts Of Interest

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was officially subpoenaed by the Select Committee on Jan. 6 along with four other Republican members of the lower chamber in an unprecedented step on Thursday.

Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Andy Biggs of Arizona, and Mo Brooks of Alabama are each demanded to offer testimony to the witch-hunt probe established by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi under threat of contempt charges that have been levied on those who’ve refused to comply.

“The illegitimate January 6th Committee had already turned Congress’s investigative authority into a political weapon; now they’ve turned that weapon on their own colleagues,” said GOP Indiana Rep. Jim Banks, who was appointed as ranking member of the committee but was barred by Speaker Pelosi from serving his minority duty. “If anyone deserves a subpoena, it’s the Speaker, the only person in Congress who is covering up key documents related to January 6th.”

Even more bizarre than the subpoenas issued to sitting lawmakers, however, are the circumstances surrounding their inception.

A congressional subpoena is not necessarily a document of its authorized committee. It is a document of Congress, wherein the authorizing committee votes on its delivery, it gets signed by the chairman, and then it gets approved by the House Counsel’s office, which reviews its legal legitimacy. No subpoena may ever be issued by Congress without the express consent of the House General Counsel, which is also tasked with representing lawmakers.

Douglas Letter, the incumbent general counsel for the House of Representatives, sent a message to members shortly after the subpoenas were issued offering to receive their service on lawmakers’ behalf.

“I am authorized by House Members to accept service of process on their behalf in situations in which they are receiving subpoenas in connection with court proceedings, such as when they are being sued or are being asked to be a witness,” Letter wrote. “In such situations, Members authorize me to play this very limited ministerial role in order to make the service of process mechanism simple and so that they and their offices are not bothered by persons trying to serve process.”

The arrangement, however — according to Stan Brand, an attorney with Brand Woodward Law — presents a grave conflict of interest.

“It’s like calling up your opponent in litigation and offering to accept service on their behalf,” Brand told The Federalist. “How does he do that since his role is on the other side of the case?”

Brand called the conflict “remarkable,” adding, “there are constitutional legal issues involved in the enforcement of these subpoenas.”

Letter did not immediately respond to The Federalist’s request for comment.

Several House lawmakers who were handed official subpoenas on Thursday refused to comply with committee requests to offer voluntary testimony, claiming the investigation is illegitimate.

The Jan. 6 Committee, born in the ashes of the failed Jan. 6 Commission, is operating under questionable authority after Pelosi launched the norm-breaking probe with a prohibition on minority appointments to the panel. Jordan and Banks, now running their own investigation of the Capitol security failures with the speaker at the center, were each kicked from their appointed roles on the select committee in violation of House rules.

Republican lawmakers have consequently been barred from a review of the same material in the hands of Pelosi’s deputies on the panel who’ve selectively leaked their findings of private communications to smear political dissidents.

Is Eric Swalwell Breaking House Ethics Rules By Soliciting Voter Information For The DNC On Twitter?

Is Eric Swalwell Breaking House Ethics Rules By Soliciting Voter Information For The DNC On Twitter?

House ethics rules explicitly bar lawmakers from using government resources for campaign purposes with extremely limited exceptions. Democrat California Rep. Eric Swalwell, however, appears to be breaking lower chamber guidelines.

On Tuesday, Swalwell published a post on his official congressional Twitter account directing his more than 1.2 million followers to a DNC-run website that gathers information for list building and fundraising.

“The Republicans won’t stop with banning abortion,” Swalwell wrote, capitalizing on a leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court set to send decisions over abortion policy back to the states. “They want to ban interracial marriage,” he added, stoking the flames of a left-wing conspiracy despite the fact that Justice Clarence Thomas, who concurred in the February draft opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade, is in such a marriage with Ginni Thomas, who is white.

Swalwell’s post featured a link to iwillvote.com paid for by the Democratic National Committee.

According to the House Committee on Ethics, “Official resources of the House must, as a general rule, be used for the performance of official business of the House, and hence those resources may not be used for campaign or political purposes.”

When reached for comment, the House Ethics Committee declined.

Mike Davis, a former chief counsel for Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley and law clerk for Justice Neil Gorsuch, wondered out loud whether Swalwell’s post violated House rules.

“Why are you using your official U.S. House account and government resources to fundraise for the DNC?” Davis wrote on Twitter.

House rules offer few exceptions for campaign-related activity to overlap with official use of government resources — such as scheduling and press purposes. Ethics laws also allow for distribution of nonpartisan voter registration materials.

“A Member may make nonpartisan voter registration information available in a congressional office, but may not actually register people to vote there,” the rules read.

“Nonpartisan,” however, is the keyword. The website Swalwell linked to, from a government Twitter account, leads users to a DNC-funded operation.

Swalwell’s office did not respond to The Federalist’s request for comment by publication time.

In December 2020, the California congressman fell into scandal after news surfaced from Axios of a close relationship between him and a since-vanished Chinese spy. Swalwell, who sits on the House Intelligence Committee with access to the nation’s top secrets, harbored a close and potentially sexual relationship with a Chinese national named Fang Fang whose whereabouts are unknown. Swalwell’s association with Fang Fang, who made a habit of sexually manipulating a pair of Midwestern mayors according to federal officials who spoke to Axios, raised enough concern within the FBI that the congressman was presented a “defensive briefing” by the intelligence community.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, both of California, were also given an FBI briefing on the matter after details were publicly exposed by Axios. McCarthy left the meeting with demands Swalwell be taken off the Intelligence Committee while Pelosi simply walked away from reporters after.

“He should not be on Intel,” McCarthy said. “I just think there are definitely 200 other Democrats that I know could fill that place.”

NEW and improved How To Vote using Marbles!

TopherField – Apr 20, 2022

New and Improved! Now with Authorisation Statement! And more cowbell*!

*This video may or may not actually contain cowbell.

You’ve been asking where my marbles videos have gone, and the answer is I was forced to delete them by the government’s absurd rules around elections.

I made those videos BEFORE I decided to run for politics, but surprise surprise once I announced I was running for the Senate in Tasmania, all of a sudden I was getting in trouble for educational videos I uploaded BEFORE I even decided if I was going to do it!

Anyway, long story short, I’ve made a whole new video, combining both the Senate and House of Representatives, and yes there’s an Authorisation Statement at the end!

Watch it and share it! Let’s teach the major parties the meaning of the phrase ‘Streisand Effect’!

Both Warned Of Potential J6 Violence, Meadows Put National Guard On Standby While Pelosi Refused Them

Both Warned Of Potential J6 Violence, Meadows Put National Guard On Standby While Pelosi Refused Them

In its latest effort to implicate former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows in the violence on Capitol Hill last year, the House Select Committee on Jan. 6 revealed Meadows had been warned about the potential for unrest preceding the riot. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had been warned too, and refused multiple requests to prepare.

Meadows, according to former advisor Cassidy Hutchinson, who was subpoenaed by the committee, was cautioned about the possibility of violence on Jan. 6 surrounding the president’s protests.

“I know that there were concerns brought forward to Mr. Meadows,” Hutchinson told panel investigators in March. “I know that people had brought information forward to him that had indicated that there could be violence on the 6th. But, again, I’m not sure if he — what he did with that information.”

The testimony was revealed in a 248-page court filing from the probe’s attorneys in an ongoing legal drama between Meadows and the Select Committee over White House records.

The committee’s revelation made headline news across legacy outlets, amplifying the probe’s discovery as an indictment against a primary target of the regime’s investigation in routine fashion.

“Meadows Was Warned Jan. 6 Could Turn Violent, House Panel Says,” read The New York Times.

“Meadows was warned Jan. 6 could turn violent, former White House official says,” headlined another article in NBC.

“Meadows was warned of violence before Jan. 6, new court filings show,” The Washington Post wrote in front-page news as a “most read” column Saturday morning.

If the revelation that Meadows was told violence might occur surrounding the protest of a politically sensitive subject is a major scandal, however, perhaps the committee should probe why Pelosi denied requests to deploy the National Guard up to six times.

In December, the initial trove of Meadows’ documents published by the Select Committee revealed Meadows pledged the National Guard would be ready to maintain order. The records illustrate a White House chief of staff who was far from dismissive of violent threats as depicted by the committee investigating Jan. 6.

“Mr. Meadows sent an email to an individual about the events on January 6 and said that the National Guard would be present to ‘protect pro Trump people’ and that many more would be available on standby,” the Select Committee wrote. Panel members framed the material as an unearthed scandal — but it now undermines its latest made-up scandal four months later.

In fact, nearly everyone in Washington knew about the potential for political unrest to break out at the climax of a violent election cycle. Even the Capitol Hill parking attendants warned about the hazard.

“Due to the possibility of large-scale public protests, access to the Capitol Plaza will be restricted,” read an email from the House Parking Team on the eve of the riot obtained by The Federalist. “For the safety and security of personnel on the House campus, we ask that staff strongly consider parking in the Cannon and Longworth House Underground Garages.”

That Meadows, a former four-term member of Congress, would be totally oblivious to the idea that mass protests might deteriorate into an uproar is negligent thinking.

Whereas Meadows was a White House bureaucrat involved in the planning of a peaceful demonstration on the Ellipse, Pelosi possessed the authority to adequately prepare for what was to come on Capitol Hill, and she deliberately refused.

According to former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, the agency requested Speaker Pelosi approve the deployment of the National Guard six times ahead of the Jan. 6 riot. Sund said House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving, who works under Pelosi, thought the deployment was bad “optics” two days prior. Pelosi and House Democrats had previously condemned the use of federal troops in Washington to quell the violent mobs terrorizing the city.

The speaker’s deputies on the Select Committee investigating the attack, however, have publicly stated no interest in probing Pelosi’s own culpability.

“If you look at the charge that we have in the resolution, it says the facts and circumstances around January 6. I don’t see the speaker being part and parcel to that,” Select Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., told CNN last year.

Three Signs Republicans May Hammer Democrats in Midterm Landslide  

Three Signs Republicans May Hammer Democrats in Midterm Landslide  

Republicans will likely retake the House and Senate, according to polling, election experts, and Democrat rhetoric.

First: Experts

Redistricting expert and senior editor of the Cook Political Report, David Wasserman, believes Republicans will have a huge advantage in midterms based on his experience. Cook suggests 19 House seats are toss-up districts for Democrats. Many of these districts are in the Rustbelt, such as Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. This portion of the nation has been impacted by President Biden’s 40-year-high inflation and fentanyl that has streamed across the southern border. Biden has failed to secure the border from the invasion of illegal migrants.

Cook’s analysis also shows only eight Republicans are in toss-up districts. But with a wider perspective, Cook estimates only 15 Republican districts either lean Republican or are likely Republican holds. In contrast, 27 Democrat-held districts either lean that way or are likely Democrat districts. Democrats must spend precious resources holding 12 more districts than Republicans.

Second: Polling

Polling is also in favor of Republicans. Thursday polling showed Republicans heavily favored by nine points on a generic ballot (48-39 percent). The generic ballot is important because it indicates congressional Republicans have a national advantage over Democrats regardless of the candidate.

Generic polling is especially important in Senate races, where the campaigns are statewide races and garner national attention. Recent polling of individual Senate races shows Republicans doing quite well in swing states. Republicans are leading in ArizonaNew HampshireGeorgia, and Nevada.

Republicans only need to net one seat to reclaim the Senate. While they have more Senate seats to defend than Democrats, Republicans also have the benefit of campaigning against an unpopular president. Biden’s nationwide approval rating in April is 33 percent. Additional polling shows 49.9 percent of voters strongly disapprove of the president, while only 20 percent strongly approve:

Third: Democrat Rhetoric

Democrat rhetoric is another reason Republicans may win in November. The Democrat-allied establishment media, along with Democrats, have begun alerting the Washington, DC, establishment that the political tide is very unfavorable. The Associated Press warned Friday that Biden’s election strategy cannot be to only blame Republicans for the nation’s crises. “Biden’s election-year challenge: Blame GOP for nation’s woes,” the title read.

The article noted Biden’s strategy of blaming Republicans for the crises that have befallen the nation. “I mean this sincerely — name me something the national Republican Party is for,” the article reported of Biden’s recent statement at the Democratic National Committee meeting.

“It’s not my fault; blame the Republicans,” Biden has said in relation to soaring gas prices and 40-year-high inflation.

That is not the only time Biden has laid blame on someone or something else for his failures. “Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has driven up gas prices and food prices all over the world,” Biden claimed in Iowa in April. “So everything is going up. We saw it in today’s inflation data.” Biden’s claim that inflation is only a result of Putin’s actions is incorrect. Inflation was climbing well before Putin invaded Ukraine.

The economy is unlikely to correct before the midterms. Economists predict the nation has a 35 percent chance of falling into a recession between 2022 and 2023. Americans expect the nation will not economically recover before the midterms.

Report: South Carolina Democrat James Clyburn Showers Relatives with Thousands in Campaign Cash

Report: South Carolina Democrat James Clyburn Showers Relatives with Thousands in Campaign Cash

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) has reportedly given multiple family members over $200,000 in campaign cash over the recent years.

The number two Democrat in the House showed on his campaign expenditures, reviewed by Fox News, that five relatives have enjoyed the payday from some of his hefty campaign hauls, equaling upwards of $200,000. Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show that those relatives include two of his daughters, their husbands, and a grandson.

The Democrat’s daughter, Jennifer Clyburn Reed, has taken in $45,000 under “consulting” and campaign management fees” from July and December 2020, according to FEC records.

Fox noted that she has also taken in tens of thousands in “office rent,” but the checks are made out to a limited liability company her husband owns rather than making the checks out to them personally. The campaign has spent $62,500 on rent to a company called 49 Magnolia Blossom LLC since March 2020. Business records from the state show that Jennifer Clyburn Reed’s husband, Walter A Reed, is the agent on the LLC.

The address from the LLC is the same as Jennifer and Walter’s former home address, which the two purchased in February 2003 but sold the property in April 2021, according to Richland County property records. Payments were reportedly also made to Walter for $650 in May 2021 for “office maintenance lighting.” The campaign’s most recent payment to the LLC was this past fundraising quarter worth $7,500.

Another daughter, Angela Hannibal, has taken in more than $20,000 for truck rentals, canvassing, voter outreach, and catering between April 2018 to October 2019, according to FEC records. Angela Hannibal’s husband, Cecil Hannibal, has also taken in about $70,000 for community and district outreach and travel reimbursements from the campaign committee.

Lastly, Clyburn’s grandson Walter A.C. Reed has received six payments totaling $21,000 from the campaign committee during the first quarter of 2022 for a “campaign management fee.” Overall, Fox News reported that checks to his grandson date back to October 2021 and add up to $35,000.

Clyburn, a top Democrat in the Capitol and who held influence over President Joe Biden during his presidential election, has also appeared to get presidential favors granted for his family. One of his daughters, Jennifer Clyburn Reed, was nominated by Biden to be a federal co-chair of the Southeast Crescent Regional Commission last year and was only narrowly confirmed by the Senate.
