Matt Gaetz Campaigns In Wyoming to Oust Liz Cheney From Republican Leadership

Representative Matt Gaetz (MAGA-FL) is heading to Wyoming to assist the state effort to rebuke Liz Cheney for her insufferable position to impeach President Trump.

Ms Cheney voted against the overwhelming voice of the Wyoming people and is now facing the backlash she deserves.

Of course the ever snarky DeceptiCon Cheney fires back with insults instead of actual policy or justification telling Gaetz he “can leave his beauty bag at home. In Wyoming, the men don’t wear make-up.”

WASHINGTON DC – As another Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump looms on the horizon, House Republicans stepped up their pressure campaign against GOP Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney to resign from her leadership post.

Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz plans to rally with local Republicans in Cheyenne on Thursday to urge the Wyoming Republican congresswoman to step down as a result of her voting in favor of Trump’s second impeachment and accusing him of “betrayal” to the office of the presidency.

In a tweet promoting the event, Gaetz said, “I do not want her job. I unequivocally am not seeking a position in House Leadership. I also know Wyoming can do better.”

A Cheney spokesperson shot back at Gaetz, telling the Washington Examiner, “Rep. Gaetz can leave his beauty bag at home. In Wyoming, the men don’t wear make-up.”

Cheney, who is already facing a primary challenger, was excoriated by the Wyoming Republican Party, noting Trump was denied due process by the representative and that the state voted for the reelection of Trump by a margin of 70% to 30%. (read more)

The un-discussed aspect is the unity pact between both wings of the UniParty bird.  The GOPe wants elimination of “Trump” supporters in exactly the same way the GOP wanted, and orchestrated, the elimination of the Tea Party.

If America-First or “MAGA” ideology is the Republican brand, that means the elimination (ie. lots of republicans being primaried) of tenured GOPe politicians.  As an outcome, “Trumpism” is a risk to their structural power.  The charge against the Tea Party was led by senate republicans.  The same charge against Trump was led by Senate Republicans.

When the Tea Party rose to power and primaried a host of GOP politicians, it was the Republican party that attacked the conservative base and attempted to destroy the rebellion.  McCain called us “hobbits” and McConnell called us “jihadists.”  The threat from the Tea Party was felt amid the GOP.  The GOP was *not* going to adjust.

Meanwhile Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama destroyed the center of their political party called the Blue Dog coalition, represented by Bart Stupak.  The Blue Dogs were wiped out in 2010 because Democrats forced them into radical left-wing agenda items.

A new party, ie. ‘THE’ new party, would not be a carve out of around 80%+ within the Republican club.  A new party would be a coalition party of Democrats, Republicans and Independents.  Need proof of the scale, look at the 2020 election for Trump.  That’s the (fill__blank) party.

A new party would be a SECOND party to the UniParty occupants currently pushing more big government in Washington DC.  The fact that we have decades worth of evidence (Patriot Act, Wall Street Lobbyists, K-St. etc.), and specifically the past ten years (omnibus spending bills, limitless debt ceiling, massive wasted stimulus, political bailouts, QE1/QE2, Obamacare, college tuition takeover etc.) shows that both Democrats and Republicans are two wings of the same big government bird.

The fear of “splitting the GOP” is the weaponized talking point of the GOP leadership who use that fear as a weapon to remain in power.  In my opinion many of those who listen to that threat are suffering from battered conservative syndrome.

There is nothing conservative about expanding government, spending into oblivion, allowing open borders and simultaneously removing liberty and freedom.   What exactly is being “conserved”? CTH has been making this argument for years.

The Left’s Anti-Science School Closures Are Killing More Students Than The Virus

Almost a year after COVID-19 reached the United States and government-mandated lockdowns began shutting down nearly every aspect of American life, many schools across the nation have yet to reopen for in-person learning.

While the science and data, previously ignored by the virtue-signaling left, suggests that educational leaders should seriously consider ending virtual schooling for the sake of students’ mental health and academic advancement, many school districts remain closed, offering only online classes or virtual learning options to millions of children and teens.

Even as the COVID-19 vaccine becomes more readily available to members of the community, including teachers, authoritative voices in the education world have expressed hesitancy and even cast doubt on the decision to abolish remote learning.

“Given the seemingly intractable health and labor challenges, some district officials have begun to say out loud what was previously unthinkable: that schools may not be operating normally for the 2021-2022 school year,” the New York Times wrote, amplifying concerns over vaccine viability and virus transmission even after most teachers will have been vaccinated.

In Burbio’s K-12 School Opening Tracker, a clear pattern emerges with regard to which cities and states tend to favor in-classroom schooling versus staying online. While red states such as Texas, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Florida are overwhelmingly giving their students opportunities to fully learn in person five days a week, bluer coastal states such as New York, Maine, California, and Oregon are keeping students at home, with only some of the more rural districts dipping their toes into a hybrid learning schedule.

In these states, cities such as New York City; San Francisco; Fairfax, Virginia; Scranton, Pennsylvania; Newark, New Jersey; Seattle; Portland; Minneapolis; Washington, D.C.; and Atlanta are still operating on almost a fully remote basis, delaying the return of students even longer than their peers in other parts of the country and the world.

Another clear pattern in school reopenings occurs between the types of schools. While only 5 percent of private schools remained virtual in the fall 2020 semester, approximately 60 percent of public schools stayed online, teaching students as young as 4 years old over Zoom.

Some schools began to shift their perspectives on reopening after extended closures had adverse effects on their students’ well-being. After an alarming decline in students’ mental health and 18 suicides between March and December in children as young as 9 years old, Clark County, Nevada, was forced to evaluate the effectiveness of keeping children and teens home and learning online.

“When we started to see the uptick in children taking their lives, we knew it wasn’t just the Covid numbers we need to look at anymore,” Clark County Superintendent Jesus Jara told the New York Times. “We have to find a way to put our hands on our kids, to see them, to look at them. They’ve got to start seeing some movement, some hope.”

While the Trump administration and others warned that school closures would do more harm than good, it took the deaths of students at their own hands to shock one district into reopening.

“Given the politically charged atmosphere this summer, many of those warnings were dismissed as scare tactics,” the Times wrote. “Parents of students who have taken their lives say connecting suicide to school closings became almost taboo.”

Despite parents’ growing opposition, as recorded by Pew Research, to the difficulty and dangers that come with remote learning and concerns about their children’s mental health and educational growth, the schools that have returned to hybrid learning or only offered a small selection of students the option to be in the classroom are receiving strong pushback from teachers unions that claim the return is unsafe and will result in the deaths of staff and students.

Earlier this month, more than 100 Chicago teachers refused to show up on their first day back to work in the spring semester. Instead of arriving at school ready to teach on their first day back in person, some teachers hosted a “teach-in,” conducting classes online while camping outside the school in the freezing temperatures. As a result, Chicago Public Schools docked their pay and blocked them from teaching, even remotely, the thousands of pre-kindergarten and special education students who were allowed back in classrooms in January.

This disciplinary action, however, did not stop the unions from refusing to work. This week, the Chicago Teachers Union, once again, voted to resist the district’s decision to allow some students back in the classroom for in-person learning, a demand that the district eventually obliged.

In West Virginia, the American Federation of Teachers-West Virginia announced its decision to sue the state Board of Education, the state Department of Education, and other county boards of education “to protect the health and safety of school employees,” after the state Board of Education unanimously passed a motion that prohibited schools from staying virtual after Jan. 19, overturning decisions by county boards to stay closed.

Despite the clear complications of virtual learning for students, teachers, and parents, especially those who work outside the home, school districts are extending their remote learning period, some beyond the date that they first began teaching over Zoom in March 2020. These educational institutions that receive federal tax dollars to operate are denying children the educations that they not only want but have been declared necessary by health officials, including Anthony Fauci.

Joe Biden Issues Travel Ban on South Africa; Reinstates Europe, Brazil Bans

President Joe Biden has issued a travel ban on South Africa, stopping most immigration to the United States from the country, and reinstated bans on Europe and Brazil to slow the spread of the Chinese coronavirus.

Biden, who once referred to President Trump’s travel ban on China as “hysterical xenophobic,” has issued a travel ban on South Africa as variants of the coronavirus spread in the country. Likewise, Biden has reinstated travel bans on Europe and Brazil, which Trump had ended after lobbying from the U.S. airline industry.

The bans will halt most immigration from South Africa, Europe, and Brazil, the order states [emphasis added]:

I have determined that it is in the interests of the United States to take action to restrict and suspend the entry into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, of noncitizens of the United States (“noncitizens”) who were physically present within the Schengen Area, the United Kingdom (excluding overseas territories outside of Europe), the Republic of Ireland, the Federative Republic of Brazil, and the Republic of South Africa during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States.

Based on developments with respect to the variants and the continued spread of the disease, CDC has reexamined its policies on international travel and, after reviewing the public health situations within the Schengen Area, the United Kingdom (excluding overseas territories outside of Europe), the Republic of Ireland, the Federative Republic of Brazil, and the Republic of South Africa, has concluded that continued and further measures are required to protect the public health from travelers entering the United States from those jurisdictions.

The bans are in addition to those already in place on Iran and China, which experts said have immensely helped to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The World Health Organization (W.H.O.), reports revealed, sought to stop experts from recommending travel bans.

In a press conference on Monday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended the Biden administration’s travel bans after previously suggesting Trump’s orders were rooted in xenophobia and racism.

“He also, though, has supported — and he himself, even before, or we did, I should say, even before he was inaugurated, steps, travel restrictions, in order to keep the American people safe to ensure that we are getting the pandemic under control,” Psaki said.

“That’s been part of his policy. But he was critical of the former president for having a policy that was not more comprehensive than travel restrictions,” Psaki continued. And he conveyed at the time, and more recently, the importance of having a multifaceted approach … not just travel restrictions.”

Biden’s initial coronavirus plan, though, did not include a single travel ban on any country.

DOJ Inspector General Announces Investigation into DOJ Effort to Influence the 2020 Election

Yeah, you really cannot make this stuff up.  After the DOJ, FBI, CIA and US Intelligence Apparatus writ large, went to extraordinary lengths to influence both the 2016 presidential election (Yates/Comey) against Donald Trump; and the 2018 mid-term election (Rosenstein/Mueller) against President Trump; with no accountability despite the overwhelming evidence…. Now the DOJ Office of Inspector General wants to investigate political pressure on the 2020 election.

DOJ – The DOJ Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is initiating an investigation into whether any former or current DOJ official engaged in an improper attempt to have DOJ seek to alter the outcome of the 2020 Presidential Election.

The investigation will encompass all relevant allegations that may arise that are within the scope of the OIG’s jurisdiction. The OIG has jurisdiction to investigate allegations concerning the conduct of former and current DOJ employees. The OIG’s jurisdiction does not extend to allegations against other government officials.

The OIG is making this statement, consistent with DOJ policy, to reassure the public that an appropriate agency is investigating the allegations. Consistent with OIG policy, we will not comment further on the investigation until it is completed. When our investigation is concluded, we will proceed with our usual process for releasing our findings publicly in accordance with relevant laws, and DOJ and OIG policies. (link)

Decepticons Face The Fail – Senator Rob Portman Announces He Will Not Seek Reelection

In the 2022 Senate races there are 34 seats up for grabs.  14 are held by Democrats and 20 are held by tenuous Republicans.  [Breakdown Here] Due to vulnerability, their lack of support amid the republican base, and their insufferable 2020 behavior outing them as DeceptiCons it is almost guaranteed the GOP will lose seats in the 2022 mid-term election.

As a consequence Senators Richard Burr (NC), Ron Johnson (WI) and Pat Toomey (PA) had previously mentioned they were not going to seek reelection; now Senator Rob Portman (OH) makes the same announcement:

OHIO – On Monday, Sen. Rob Portman and his wife, Jane, walked into a room resplendent with ornate art deco murals and fixtures in the Hilton Netherland Plaza in downtown Cincinnati.

Portman briefly reminisced with reporters about ice skating in that very room as a child. Then, the Republican from Terrace Park took the stage and announced an end to his three decades in politics.

Portman, 65, won’t seek re-election next year but will serve out his term that ends on Jan. 3, 2023. (read more)

Things amid the DeceptiCon caucus are getting interesting.  With four GOP senators having announced they’re not running (Burr, Johnson, Toomey, Portman) there’s essentially zero chance of the GOP retaking control of the Senate in 2022.  [20 R seats up & only 14 D seats that are in solid D strongholds] it is far more likely the Democrats will gain seats, so keep this in mind…. 

…When we think about forming a third party, the “you will split the vote” crew always peddles their vote split narrative.  However, the GOP doesn’t have a chance in hell to win 2022 given what the base of the Republicans think about these senate DeceptiCons now.

There has never been a better time for a New Party to launch and capture three or four seats from the retiring GOPe crew.  It would be great to see true MAGA representatives that can caucus with Republicans but hold ground on America First principles.

And someone needs to primary Lisa Murkowski again.

Police In Pomona, Calif. Rescue Juvenile Human Trafficking Victims

Pomona, CA — The following is a news release form to Ponoma Police Department:

Over the weekend, the Pomona Police Department SET Team recovered two juvenile victims of Human Trafficking. The first recovery was on Friday January 22nd when  officers observed a young looking female in the area of Holt Av and St. Paul St. She was observed wearing very revealing clothing and standing in the street making contact with vehicles occupied by lone male motorists. It was determined that her actions were consistent with loitering for prostitution. Before officers could contact her, she was observed getting into a vehicle. A traffic stop was conducted and the female was contacted. She was found to be a 17 year old juvenile and was taken into protective custody. It was later learned that she was a reported missing juvenile out of the City of Los Angeles. She was transported to the Pomona Police Station for further investigation.

SET Team Officers initiated the First Responder Protocol (FRP) to activate the multi-agency response team, which ensures resources, and services are provided for the victim. The First Responder Protocol is an agreement between the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, Probation, and local law enforcement all of whom work in cooperation to provide a victim-centered approach to juvenile victims of human trafficking. The victim was released to the custody of the Department of Children and Family Services. This investigation is ongoing.

The second recovery occurred on Sunday January 24th. Pomona Police Department Set Team officers were conducting surveillance along the Holt corridor for prostitution activity when officers observed a very young looking female wearing a fishnet bodysuit with nothing underneath. The female was observed approaching vehicles occupied by lone male motorists, making contact with and waiving at vehicles occupied by lone males. Her actions were consistent with someone loitering for prostitution. SET Team officers contacted the female and she initially told them she was 15 years old. She was immediately taken into protective custody and transported to the Pomona Police station. Once at the station it was discovered she was actually 14 years old and had an open case out of the County of San Bernardino. The juvenile admitted to working as a prostitute since the age of 11.

SET Team Officers initiated the First Responder Protocol (FRP) to activate the multi-agency response team, which ensures resources, and services are provided for the victim. The First Responder Protocol is an agreement between the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, Probation, and local law enforcement all of whom work in cooperation to provide a victim-centered approach to juvenile victims of human trafficking. Because the victim had an open case out of San Bernardino County, she was released to the custody of the San Bernardino County Department of Children and Family Services. This investigation is ongoing.

Since January 1st 2021 the Pomona Police Department SET Team has recovered 4 juvenile victims of Human Trafficking.

No more “slaps on the wrist”: Stalker known as “The Panty Man” sent to prison

Photo Source: FBI

Matthew D. Krueger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on January 22, 2020, Aaron T. Moul, a/k/a “The Panty Man,” a/k/a “Jazmyn Samuels,” a/k/a “Aaron Timothy” (age: 29) of North Providence, Rhode Island, was sentenced to 48 months in federal prison by Senior U.S. District Judge William C. Griesbach.

In October of 2020, Moul pled guilty to one count of use of a telephone with the intent to abuse, threaten, or harass, and one count of cyberstalking. Moul’s crimes occurred in April of 2020, when he used his online persona “The Panty Man,” to contact a resident of Langlade County via Facebook and the telephone, to convey threats to injure and kill that person. Over a series of days, Moul repeated his threats while also sending sexualized images and videos of himself displayed and “twerking” in women’s underwear. Simultaneously, Moul was sending similar threats and videos to a resident of Arizona.

In pronouncing sentence, Judge Griesbach noted the insidious nature of Moul’s crimes, which displayed a high level of anger and misogyny toward his victims. Judge Griesbach noted Moul’s previous convictions for similar crimes in other states for which he had received “slaps on the wrist.” Finally, the judge determined that deterrence and the protection of the community were of utmost importance in arriving at a just sentence. Moul’s prison sentence will be followed by three years on supervised release.

This case was investigated by the Langlade County Sheriff’s Office, the North Providence Rhode Island Police Department, and the United States Marshal’s Service. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel R. Humble.

Jen Psaki Struggles to Explain Why Joe Biden’s South Africa Travel Ban Isn’t ‘Xenophobic’ Like Trump’s China Travel Ban

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki struggled to explain Monday why President Joe Biden’s travel ban on South Africa was not “xenophobic” — which is how then-candidate Biden described President Donald Trump’s ban on China last year.

Peter Doocy, the White House correspondent for Fox News, asked Psaki: “When President Trump was imposing travel restrictions in March [sic] specifically on China, then-candidate Biden called it ‘xenophobic’ and ‘fear-mongering.’ So now President Biden is putting travel restrictions on people coming in from other countries. What words would you use to describe that?”

Psaki answered:

I don’t think that’s quite a fair articulation. The president has been clear that he felt the “Muslim ban” was xenophobic. He overturned the “Muslim ban.” He also, though, has supported — and he himself, even before, or we did, I should say, even before he was inaugurated, steps, travel restrictions, in order to keep the American people safe to ensure that we are getting the pandemic under control. That’s been part of his policy. But he was critical of the former president for having a policy that was not more comprehensive than travel restrictions. And he conveyed at the time, and more recently, the importance of having a multifaceted approach … not just travel restrictions.

Biden did refer to Trump’s travel ban in January 2020 as “hysterical xenophobia and fearmongering.” He finally backed the China travel ban more than two months later, in April 2020.

As Breitbart News has noted several times, there was no “Muslim ban.”
