J.D. Vance Blasts Tim Ryan — ‘You Can’t Just Flip-Flop on Every Position You’ve Held’

J.D. Vance Blasts Tim Ryan — ‘You Can’t Just Flip-Flop on Every Position You’ve Held’

On Sunday, Ohio Republican Senate nominee J.D. Vance ripped his opponent, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), for “pretending that he’s something that he’s not.”

According to Vance, Ryan’s voting record and public statements don’t back up his claims in his television ads.

“I think we’re in a really good spot here in Ohio,” Vance told Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo.

“The problem that my Democratic opponent, Tim Ryan, has is that he tries to be one thing on his TV commercials, but his voting record and his public statements just don’t back it up. So, on the one hand, he criticizes mildly Joe Biden’s debt forgiveness plan for college students. On the other hand, he voted for the exact same thing two years ago. And you can’t just flip-flop on every position you’ve held over the last two years and expect people to take it seriously.”

“So, I think we’re in a good spot against Tim Ryan,” he added. “We’ve got a lot of work to do, and I think we have to make sure that Ohio voters actually get out there and vote because if they don’t, we’re going to put a guy who supported defund the police and supported these inflationary policies into the Senate from Ohio. And we deserve to have a good senator from Ohio — not a rubber stamp for Joe Biden.”

Cruz Rips Democrat Inflation Reduction Act — ‘A Massive Power Grab’

Cruz Rips Democrat Inflation Reduction Act — ‘A Massive Power Grab’

In an interview on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed the $700 billion Inflation Reduction Act, a scaled-down iteration of the Build Back Better Act.

Cruz told host Maria Bartiromo that the legislation was “terrible” and a “massive power grab” by the Democrats because it would raise gas prices and double the size of the Internal Revenue Service.

“The Democrats are on the verge of ramming through what really is a terrible bill,” Cruz warned prior to the bill’s passage. “This bill will hammer manufacturing. It will kill manufacturing jobs in this country. It will hammer small businesses. This bill will drive up gas prices. It has billions in new taxes on U.S. oil and gas production. We introduced amendments trying to take those new taxes out, so all the Democrats say they’re worried and want to lower gas prices — they all just voted to raise gas taxes and to raise your price at the pump.”

“This bill creates 87,000 new IRS agents,” he continued. “It doubles the size of the IRS. Those IRS agents are designed to come after you. They’re not designed to come after the billionaires and the big corporations. They’re designed to come after small businesses and working families across this country. The Democrats are making the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, plus the Department of State, plus the FBI, plus the Border Patrol combined. The IRS is going to be bigger. This is a massive power grab.”

Mark Levin on Dobbs Decision: SCOTUS Is Saying ‘We Don’t Have Any Power’

Mark Levin on Dobbs Decision: SCOTUS Is Saying ‘We Don’t Have Any Power’

During an appearance on this week’s broadcast of FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” conservative talker Mark Levin, host of “Life, Liberty & Levin,” gave his take on Friday’s Supreme Court ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Levin criticized Democrats who were critical of the high court decision and said the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Constitution was the federal government did not have the power to make abortion on demand legal as the 1973 Roe v. Wade case had.

BARTIROMO: Mark, good morning to you. Great to have you this morning.

LEVIN: My pleasure. Thank you, Maria.

BARTIROMO: You are the former chief of staff of the Department of Justice. You have been talking about what has taken place all weekend. Let’s walk through the ruling. Tell us how you see things.

LEVIN: First of all, we don’t need lectures from Joe Biden, who plagiarized his way through law school. He has no idea what’s going on.

Secondly, the media in America are so thoroughly corrupt. They haven’t read Roe v. Wade or the subsequent Casey decision or even this decision. And, thirdly, neither has Pelosi or Schumer, because they come right out of the box.

Here’s the decision. How do they know what is in the decision in 30 seconds to have press releases and so forth? And they’re lying about this decision. This decision is very simple.

Here we have what’s called the Constitution of the United States, not the tax code. It’s not Obamacare. It’s very simple. It’s about 5,000 words. And you can look all you want. The word abortion is not in there. And it’s never going to be in there, unless they add to it.

Here’s the deal. Really, Roe vs. Wade wasn’t overturned. Roe vs. Wade was fundamentally altered by a decision in 1992 — Roe was 1973 — called the Casey decision in Pennsylvania, which changed the trimester test and had the undue burden and viability test, which they basically stole from Europe and from other kinds of laws we have in this country.

The Supreme Court has been shooting from the hip on abortion now for about half-a-century. And that’s why you have all these cases keep working their way to the Supreme Court from federal district courts, and so all these pro-abortion groups constantly litigating to prevent the states from having any regulation whatsoever.

And let’s be clear about what this decision says. This decision says something really unique in American history. We have a very, very powerful body, the Supreme Court, saying, we don’t have any power. When’s the last time you heard Congress or the president or the bureaucracy say, we don’t have any power, so we’re going to give this authority where it belongs, back to the people in the states?

It’s that simple. They’re interpreting the Constitution. It’s not taking anybody’s rights away. It’s not giving rights to anybody. First of all, God does that. But, that said, there’s 50 states for a reason. We’re not a parliamentary system like in Canada, like in France. We have 50 states for a reason, 50 legislatures for a reason, so that decisions can be made by the people in these states.

BARTIROMO: Yes.

LEVIN: The majority leader in the Senate is from New York. The speaker is from San Francisco. They don’t get to decide everything in between the country and trying to impose their will.

And the court rightly says, look, we’re nine justices. Sometimes, these are 5-4 votes.

BARTIROMO: Yes.

LEVIN: The Casey vote was 5-4. The Roe vote was 7-2. This vote was basically 5 to 3 to 1.

We shouldn’t be deciding these cultural issues for the American people. That’s why we’re at each other’s throats. We have a system for that.

BARTIROMO: Yes.

LEVIN: It’s called federalism.

Now, what do the Democrats really stand for, Maria?

BARTIROMO: Yes.

LEVIN: And we know what they really stand for, because, right after the leak of the first draft, they put together a bill, and they voted on it. And it lost.

Now, let me tell you what is in that bill, because we’re debating the wrong issue.

BARTIROMO: That’s right.

LEVIN: We’re not debating Roe vs. Wade.

This is what the Democrats want, abortion up to delivery. That was in their bill.

BARTIROMO: Right.

LEVIN: All state laws invalidating abortion after five months of pregnancy, they would invalidate so. There’s viability. It’s a baby. It can live outside the womb, even under those circumstances. They support abortion.

Invalidate state laws that prevent abortion for sex selection. So, their law would have invalidated that. Invalidate conscience decisions, certain nurses or doctors because of their faith and so forth. We have those conscience laws in 46 states. The Democrats would have blown out.

That that’s why radical pro-abort types like Collins and Murkowski and others, even they had to vote against this law. So let’s be clear that Democrats stand for a partial-birth, last-second infanticide…

BARTIROMO: Wow.

LEVIN: … which means taking a big needle, shoving it into the top of the head of the baby, draining out their brain, turning it around in the womb…

BARTIROMO: Oh, God.

LEVIN: … and pulling it out by its feet. That’s why you never see graphics on these news shows explaining exactly what the Democrats stand for.

BARTIROMO: Yes.

LEVIN: That’s what they stand for. That’s what they would do.

Jim Jordan: January 6 Committee ‘Has Altered Evidence and Lied to the American People About It’

During this week’s broadcast of FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) criticized House Select January 6 Committee Democrats for their “choreographed” presentation earlier in the week.

The Ohio Republican lawmaker also reminded viewers of altered evidence, apparently referring to an altered text message exchange between Jordan and Mark Meadows.

“I want to see all the depositions,” he said. “I want to see all the documents. And ranking member Rodney Davis has already sent a preservation letter to the committee, saying, preserve all this information, so we can look at it, and the American people can get the full story, not just this one-sided, choreographed presentation we got — excuse me — we got the other night. But when you think about what this committee has done, never in the history of this country, in the history of the House of Representatives, has a minority leader not been able to put on a select committee that individuals he or she has selected.”

“We also know that this committee has altered evidence and lied to the American people about it, so much so that they had to issue a statement which says, we regret the error, which is government-speak for, we got caught lying,” Jordan continued. “So that’s what this committee is about. I think the country sees it for what it is, a partisan political activity. That’s why the leader and I wrote the op-ed that we did in The Wall Street Journal a couple of weeks ago.”

Cruz: Biden Is ‘Literally Threatening the Lives’ of Supreme Court Justices

Cruz: Biden Is ‘Literally Threatening the Lives’ of Supreme Court Justices

Sunday on Fox News Channel, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted the Biden White House for refusing to “condemn” the violent protesters that were threatening the U.S. Supreme Court justices and their families over the leaked draft opinion overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.

Cruz noted on “Sunday Morning Futures” that the left-wing groups attempting to intimidate justices to change their votes and said the White House not condemning the violent threats was “shameful.” He argued President Joe Biden was “literally threatening the lives of these justices.”

“We have got left-wing groups now that have published the addresses of justices,” Cruz lamented. “The intent of this clerk was to bully and threaten and intimidate the justices to changing their votes. And I got to say, this week, it was shameful that the White House refused to condemn violent protesters threatening the families of the Supreme Court.

“It is disgraceful,” he continued. “And Joe Biden used to be chairman of the Judiciary Committee. Joe Biden knows it’s disgraceful. He’s literally threatening the lives of these justices by the mob they’re unleashing. It’s the same thing we saw with Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, where the left embraced them. And now they’re embracing mob violence to get their partisan outcome.”

Ron Johnson Blasts DHS’s Disinformation Governance Board — ‘This Is Orwellian’

Ron Johnson Blasts DHS’s Disinformation Governance Board — ‘This Is Orwellian’

During an appearance on this week’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) railed against the Department of Homeland Security’s so-called “Disinformation Governance Board” that was created to fight “misinformation.”

Johnson described the board as “Orwellian” and as a “Ministry of Truth.” He pointed out that the person put in charge of the board, Nina Jankowicz, brushed off the Hunter Biden laptop story as Russian disinformation and pushed the hoax that the Trump administration was colluding with Russia.

“[T]he First Amendment to our Constitution states that Congress shall pass no law abridging the freedom of speech. So, we have passed no such law. The president’s job is to faithfully execute the law. So he has no authority to do this. This is Orwellian. This is a Ministry of Truth,” Johnson asserted. “And the person they have appointed is a Democrat propagandist. She pushed the Russian collusion with the Trump campaign hoax. She pushed the hoax that the laptop was some form of Russian information campaign.”

He continued, “Those are probably two of the most egregious, and I would say effective, piece of disinformation. They had more impact on our body politic, on our elections than anything else I could think of, and certainly had a greater impact than anything Russia ever could have dreamed of. And she was leading the charge on that disinformation. You can’t make this up. This is the exact person that this administration now has appointed to have this unconstitutional Disinformation Governance Board. This is outlandish. It should not be funded. It should never be established.”

GOP Rep. Biggs: Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal Seems Like a ‘Cover-Up’

GOP Rep. Biggs: Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal Seems Like a ‘Cover-Up’

During an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) argued that the scandal surrounding Hunter Biden’s laptop looked like a “cover-up.”

Biggs emphasized that Hunter Biden’s finances seem to “perfectly” tie his father, President Joe Biden, to Iraq and China, dating back to his time as vice president. He said it was important to investigate whether or not “the Biden drifting family” was “compromised” and who all acted to suppress the scandal.

“[Y]ou need to remember, of course, and I think everybody does, that 51 former intelligence community folks said, ‘No, there’s nothing here. This is Russian disinformation.’ And that was to suppress this for the election in 2020,” Biggs outlined. “But the reality is, Jason, this goes back to when Joe Biden was the vice president, it goes back to a billion-dollar contract to his brother Jim, it goes back to other contracts given to Hunter Biden in Iraq, it goes … all the way to China and the Chinese energy company over there that gave them millions of dollars. And you see, all of those seem to be perfectly tied with access to Joe Biden. So, if they’re not going to give us information, it does continue to look like the cover-up that we suspect it to be.”

He continued, “All of these seem to indicate that this doesn’t stop with Hunter Biden or Jim Biden or other members of the Biden grifting family. What it does is it all comes into access to Joe Biden. And that is why Congress needs to know, is this president … compromised? Is his family compromised? Are those around him compromised? And actually, quite frankly, is DOJ suppressing this, and if they are, are they compromised?”

Ron Johnson on Hunter Biden Laptop: ‘Media’s Being Caught in a Cover-Up’

Ron Johnson on Hunter Biden Laptop: ‘Media’s Being Caught in a Cover-Up’

Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) on Sunday weighed in on major media outlets confirming the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s recovered laptop and emails revealing his business dealings.

Johnson told Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that the admission from the New York Times and Washington Post proves “how complicit” the media have been in an effort to cover up Hunter Biden’s laptop leading up to the 2020 presidential election.

“I think really what the New York Times and the Washington Post articles prove is how complicit they have been and continue to be in the cover-up,” Johnson outlined. “And, you know, quite honestly, they’re not impartial. They’re advocates for the Democrat Party of the radical left. You know, the Washington Post learned a lot of lessons from their coverage of Nixon. When you get caught in a cover-up — and that’s what’s happened, the media’s being caught in a cover-up. They’re being caught with their lies.”

“This is serious business. This is unbelievable corruption at the highest levels of government and within our media,” he added. “We are all being snookered by them. This has been a — from my standpoint — a massive diversionary operation to, you know, to try and take the American public’s attention away if their wrongdoing, their lies, their cover-ups.”

“They covered it up,” Johnson continued. “And as a result, they got Joe Biden elected; now they continue to cover up for him. But this is troubling. Now, we have actual bank records that verify what we reported. … the laptop is obviously a treasure-trove of additional corroborating evidence as well.”
