GOP Rep. Stefanik Calls Out Biden over Baby Formula Shortage — ‘We Have Seen No Plan’

Wednesday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) demanded action from President Joe Biden and the Food and Drug Administration to solve the nationwide baby formula shortage crisis.

Stefanik, noting the importance of formula access for babies, called the shortage “harrowing.” She lamented there was “no plan from Joe Biden.”

“This is a crisis across America,” Stefanik advised. “I can think of no more harrowing just crisis for parents as they are desperately trying to find access to baby formula. [My son] Sam is nine months. He is formula-fed. We are lucky in the sense that there is not a particular brand of formula, but for health issues, some babies only take a certain type of formula. The shelves have been fairly empty in upstate New York, and I’m hearing from parents all across America. We are demanding action.”

“I actually saw this crisis coming and demanded FDA respond in February of this year when there was the recall of the Sturgiss, Michigan plant, so this is a huge crisis,” she added. “We want to make sure that there is a plan. And we have seen no plan from Joe Biden or the FDA.”

Hawley: Kentanji Brown Jackson ‘Lenient’ on Child Sex Predators, ‘Soft on Crime’

Hawley: Kentanji Brown Jackson ‘Lenient’ on Child Sex Predators, ‘Soft on Crime’

Monday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) called into question Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s record ahead of her confirmation hearing to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Hawley, pointing to Jackson’s time on the bench, suggested Jackson had been “lenient” on child sexual predators and “soft on crime.” He said the Senate Judiciary Committee needed to know whether Jackson would protect the nation’s children or the sexual predators.

“It’s her record, Brian, is really what concerns me,” Hawley outlined. “And in particular, just to take one example — if you look at what she has done with child porn offenders. While she has been on the bench, Judge Jackson, in every case in which she has had a child porn offender in front of her, she has given that person a lenient sentence — lower than what the federal guidelines recommend, lower than what prosecutors from the government sought. And in fact, she did it in case after case. And going back to her time on the Sentencing Commission, Brian, before she was on the bench. She wanted to eliminate the current mandatory minimum sentence for child porn offenders. As far back as law school, she talked about questioning whether child sex offender registries are even constitutional.”

“So, this is somebody, I think, who has a lot of issues when it comes to being lenient with criminals, soft on crime. And I just want to know is this a person who is going to protect our kids or who is going to protect child sex predators. And we need to get those answers,” he added.

Jim Jordan on Dem Spending Bill: ‘No Republican Is Going to Vote for This Crazy Bill’

Friday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) predicted a spending bill pushed by congressional Democrats and touted by President Joe Biden would not receive any votes from Republicans.

He warned the bill would make matters worse and predicted it would exacerbate the inflation problem.

“I don’t think they’ll be any Republican in the Senate or the House that will vote for this crazy piece of legislation,” he said. “And frankly, Lawerence, let’s hope Senator Sinema and Senator Manchin hold firm and they don’t allow this thing to pass because we know it is going to exacerbate the inflation problem we talked about. I mean, it is a part of the Democrats’ crazy economic plan. Their economic plan has basically been lockdown the economy, spend like crazy, pay people not to work. And now for everybody that has been working — they’re going to raise your taxes. Such a deal.”

“So, let’s hope this doesn’t pass because it will make matters worse,” Jordan continued. “Right now, the country gets it. Seventy-one percent of the country thinks we’re on the wrong track. In my time in politics, I don’t think we’ve ever seen wrong-track number so high. I mean, frankly, the real question is — who is the 29% that think it is on the right track? So, let’s hope it doesn’t pass, and no Republican is going to vote for this crazy bill.”

GOP Rep. Babin Pushes for Biden Impeachment — ‘The Absolute, Most Incompetent Commander-in-Chief that We’ve Ever Seen’

In a Friday interview with FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX) called for President Joe Biden’s impeachment.

Babin said Biden is “the absolute, most incompetent commander-in-chief that we’ve ever seen.” He pointed to the ongoing border crisis, the eviction moratorium, and the mishandling of the Afghanistan withdrawal.

“[W]ith us in the minority and with [Nancy] Pelosi in charge in the House, it’s probably not going anywhere,” Babin said of the articles of impeachment filed against Biden. “We have to have some Democrats to successfully impeach the president or anybody that he has or any of his subordinates, but many of them need to be removed.”

He continued, “My good friend, Bob Gibbs from Ohio — he’s got articles of impeachment against President Biden. He’s the absolute, most incompetent commander-in-chief that we’ve ever seen, I know in my lifetime, and I’m an Army and Air Force veteran myself. And the things that he’s done on the border, stopping the great policies that President Trump came up with, and we talked about that earlier, letting thousands of COVID-positive individual migrants come across illegally into our country … unilaterally stopping the federal mandate for evictions against the warning of the Supreme Court, and then the Afghanistan debacle, having left Americans there, left $85-$90 billion worth of assets there and not having a plan to get American citizens out or our allies.”

Rand Paul Urges Milley to Take Polygraph — ‘Immediately Needs to Be Removed’ if China Talks Confirmed

Wednesday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) reacted to a report that General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called his Chinese counterpart General Li Zuocheng multiple times and told him that he would warn him ahead of any military action.

Paul told FNC’s “Fox & Friends” that Milley should be investigated “immediately” and called on him to take a polygraph test. Paul added that if the report is true, Milley needed “to be immediately removed of his command.” He added that if true, Milley’s actions were “treasonous.”

“It should be investigated immediately, today,” Paul declared. “He should be questioned under oath, if not with a polygraph test whether it happened. If it happened, he should be immediately relieved of his duties and court-martialed. You have to find out if it’s true. This is innuendo and rumor, propaganda perhaps, but if it is true, [he] absolutely immediately needs to be removed. We have elections. We can’t have generals overturning elections. That’s what we have always criticized in authoritarian regimes where the military takes over. This is very, very dangerous, and if this happened, Milley needs to be immediately removed of his command.”

“[He] should be immediately ordered into a room for an interview, not just a press interview, for an interview, with polygraph, which we do often for our intelligence officials, and he needs to be asked, did you call the Chinese government in defiance to your command? Did you warn them or insinuate to them that the president might attack them? That’s incredibly dangerous to the country, to the world, and if true, treasonous,” the senator concluded.

Noem: Newsweek Contributor Hanania’s Tweet Warning Fewer Abortions Means More Down Syndrome Babies ‘Evil’

Following a Supreme Court decision not to block Texas’ abortion law earlier this week, some members of the media condemned the decision.

Newsweek’s Richard Hanania took it as far as saying red states with abortion limitations in places could see a dramatic increase in babies with Down Syndrome.

During an appearance on FNC’s “Fox & Friends” on Saturday, Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD), who signed a bill earlier this year banning abortions for a Down Syndrome diagnosis, slammed Hanania for his remarks, warning they normalized a discussion that would suggest every life is not precious.

“[T]hat tweet — I hope people realize that it really was evil in what it did,” she said. “It normalizes — it’s starting to normalize a conversation that some people just aren’t acceptable. And we’ve seen that throughout history where people have started discussions and started to eliminate whole groups of people. And we need to make sure that we stand against that. There are some countries in Europe that have really eliminated Down Syndrome individuals and babies, and that’s why South Dakota wanted to take a stand against eugenics. Every single life is precious.”

McCarthy: Kamala Harris Spent More Time at the Airport Than at the Border — Biden Administration ‘Invited People to Rush the Border’

During Saturday’s broadcast of FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) panned Vice President Kamala Harris’ trip to the U.S.-Mexico border, which he said was a trip where the vice president spent more time at the El Paso, TX airport than at the physical U.S.-Mexico border.

According to McCarthy, Harris was wrong to blame the previous Trump administration for the current border problems.

“Well, it seems like she spent more time at the airport than she spent at the border. But to literally say that they inherited a problem and they’ve made progress? None of those facts play out. You have a border that was secure. You had a new administration that changed executive orders and invited people to rush the border illegally. Now in May, we had 180,000 encounters. That was a 21-year record of illegal crossings. For the last three months, it has increased.”

“The time that the president asked the vice president to take on this job, half a million illegal individuals came across this border when counted,” McCarthy continued. “Those are the people we were able to encounter. I think there’s going to be more than a million individuals that get through here that we don’t encounter from more than 160 countries. And what’s worse, Pete, you would understand this — we are catching people who are on the terrorist watch list from Yemen.”

Kennedy: ‘Screw the People Act’ an ‘Extraordinarily Cynical Bill’ — ‘Will Make It Much Easier to Cheat’

Tuesday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) slammed the so-called “For the People Act,” which is the Democrats’ proposed bill to expand voter rights.

Kennedy described the bill as “extraordinarily cynical” and said it “will make it much easier to cheat.” He added the bill “would be more aptly described as ‘Screw the People Act.”

“[T]his is an extraordinarily cynical bill, in my opinion, even by Washington standards. It’s very ruthless, even by Washington standards,” Kennedy outlined. “Speaker Pelosi and Senator Schumer call it, I think, the ‘For the People Act’ but I think it would be more aptly described as ‘Screw the People Act.’”

“It will make it much easier to cheat in an election. And their bill does that in two ways,” he continued. “Number one, it almost guarantees that we’ll never have another Election Day. We’ll have election months. And I think that was the genesis of a lot of concern by many people in the last election. Number two, it achieves its purpose by taking elections, which are governed by the people through their state legislatures right now, and gives that authority to the federal government. Now, why anybody would take something that’s working and give it to the federal government is beyond me. The federal bureaucracy can’t even stop scam calls or spam calls. But nonetheless, if you turn our voting procedure over to the federal government, I guarantee you the first thing they are going to do is get rid of voter I.D., and I think most Americans believe that you should have to prove who you say you are when you go to vote.”
