Should Republicans follow the Senate Minority Leader's lead or former President Donald Trump's? CNN's GOP Reporter Gabby Orr explains why that answer isn't as clear as it used to be lately. Trump keeps harping on the 2020 election results, while some Senate Republicans would rather move on. However, the grip Trump has on the House GOP remains tight. Plus, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was asked to voluntarily cooperate with the select committee investigating the Capitol insurrection.

It's Casual Friday! Sam hosts Osita Nwanevu, contributing editor at The New Republic, to wrap up the week in news and discuss his recent piece in the New York Times, "Trump Isn't the Only One To Blame for the Capitol Riot." Osita sits down to unpack the project of Republican grievance that has been built over the last few decades, boiling over into violence last 1/6. Osita explores how conservatives have been forced to grapple with seeing themselves as a political majority while they see the culture slip away from their values. First, he and Sam contextualize this within the last few decades, exploring how Senate Republicans have last represented a majority of voters in the 90s, despite holding a majority of seats about half of the time, and how this, along with a similar situation with the presidency, has allowed analysis to take over the right that ignores the structure of our political system, allowing them to interpret the electorate as conservative. They then dive into the narrative set up by this ideology, seeing any success of a progressive agenda on the electoral or cultural fronts as a result of Democratic conspiracy to undermine the conservative majority, and look at how Democratic institutionalists have internalized the fight for white moderate support as a necessity in politics, thus only working to reinforce this idea that they must constantly be catered to. They wrap up the interview by exploring how leftist organizing can work to do what the DNC won't, building infrastructure on the ground to create a base that fights for its majority representation without conceding to a moderate conservatism that is antithetical to its platform. Sam also touches on some upcoming court cases taking on testing mandates, vaccine mandates, and Congress's capacity for delegation. Then, Sam is joined by comedian Judy Gold, host of the Kill Me Now podcast, as she makes her 2022 MR debut! Judy and Sam take on the 1/6 anniversary, the conservative fear of actually saying “fuck you” to a president, and the state of having children in Omicron. And in the Fun Half, Sam touches on the oral arguments for the SCOTUS case on vaccine mandates, Teacher Lauren discusses the failure of localities to stand behind their teachers and students, and Dennis Prager reminds us that 1/6 insurrectionists were unarmed, metaphorically. Elon Musk's single lane, Tesla-only tunnel in Las Vegas turns out to not help congestion, Peter McIndoe preaches about the self-care of letting yourself breathe drone-free air, and Adam from OH-6 discusses a potential plan to run for Congress, plus, your calls and IMs!

Ron Johnson The chart lists Ivermectin, Hydroxychloriquine, Flu vaccines, Dexamethasone, Tylenol, Remdesivir, and Covid Vaccines. While Ivermectin lists 393 total deaths, with 15 deaths per year, and hydroxychloriquine lists 1770 total deaths, averaging 69 deaths per year, and Flu vaccines list 2001 deaths total, with an average of 77 deaths per year, Covid vaccines show a total of 21,002 deaths and since that has only been counting for the last year, that is also the currently annual average: 21,002 deaths from COVID vaccines. Now, were some of those deaths with vaccines instead of from vaccine? Most likely. But something is going on there. Girls-Only Schools Say They Will Only Admit Biological Girls A group of girls-only private schools in Britain are refusing to admit transgender students, worried that it could affect their status as single-sex schools under current law. The Girls' Day School Trust (GDST), which represents 25 schools across Britain, released its policy with regards to gender identity in order to clarify that the schools organizing through this group should reject the admission of transgender children. The GDST believes that an admissions policy based on gender identity rather than the legal sex recorded on a student's birth certificate would jeopardize the status of GDST schools as single-sex schools under the act,” their new guidance states. “For this reason, GDST schools do not accept applications from students who are legally male. We will, however, continue to monitor the legal interpretation of this exemption,” the guidance continues. The Trust hastened to add that all current transgender students are welcome to remain as students. The Trust also sacrificed four oxen, three sheep, and two turtle doves following the announcement, hoping not to be destroyed from the face of the earth.

Biden To Promote Meat Industry Overhaul President Biden on Monday will promote an overhaul of the meat-packing industry as he blames rising consumer prices and dwindling farmers' profits on the handful of large “middlemen” who dominate the processing segment of the supply chain. Play: 2:00-2:44 The White House said the administration will spend $1 billion to expand independent processing capacity and instill competition in a market where four meat-packing companies control 85% of the beef market, four firms control 50% of poultry processing, and four big processors control 70% of the pork market. Mr. Biden is under pressure to alleviate inflation and supply chain pressures that are making food, gas, toys and other products more expensive. At times, he's blamed the sticker shock on price gouging by big industry players. The meat-processing industry is his latest target. He said dominant processors are increasing their profits at the expense of farmers and families. Mr. Biden's plan includes $100 million for workforce training and safety after Congress accused the meat-packing industry of forcing workers into unsafe conditions during the pandemic. Ransomware attacks also hit the industry earlier in Mr. Biden's term. The White House said it will strengthen rules that require farmers and ranchers to get a fair price for the meat they provide. Ah… there we go: strengthen rules that require fair prices… That's exactly what you don't the Federal Government to be doing. Rep. Thomas Massie thread: Thread. The Biden administration is over the target. Four companies control the majority of meat processed in the United States. This quad-opoly of corporate middlemen have driven up prices in stores while depressing prices paid to struggling farmers. (tinyurl.com/5bxm87km) We all agree: the solution is to promote competition. Biden advisors recommend antitrust lawsuits against the big packers and subsidies for the little guys. There's a better answer though that's free: Roll back crippling regulations on the little guys and they will flourish. Six years ago, I worked with Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate to introduce a bill called the PRIME Act, which would right-size regulations and break up the corporate monopoly on meat processing. We've introduced this bill in every congress since 2015. The PRIME Act would allow local farmers to sell meat in local grocery stores using local processors, as long as the commerce doesn't cross state lines, and complies with all state and county regulations (such as monthly inspections by county health departments). Here's the PRIME Act, just a few pages and easy to understand. Check out the House and Senate sponsors from both sides of the aisle: (congress.gov/bill/117th-con…) (congress.gov/bill/117th-con…) So who opposes the PRIME Act and why hasn't it passed? Big Agriculture lobbyists (posing as friends of small farmers) oppose this bill, and I'm sad to tell you they've bought off most members of the House Agriculture committee. But a President could cut through the bull! Meanwhile, critics also pointed out that Biden doesn't seem to be too concerned about Big Pharma monopolies. How many Pharmaceutical companies control the current medicine markets? And speaking of monopolies: Democrats Pushing End to Filibuster Rules Democrats are resuming their push to change Senate filibuster rules in the hope of passing elections legislation, and they plan to use the one-year anniversary of the Capitol riot to win over two hold outs, Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. Democrats are hopeful that they can sway the two moderates by arguing both publicly and privately that the riot set off a sustained Republican effort to erode voting rights in state capitals across the country, Politico reported Monday. Of course this would be an about-face from previous stances. For example: In 2005, Then-Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., condemned weakening the Senate's tradition of extended debate as “an example of the arrogance of power,” a “power grab by the majority party” that would “eviscerate the Senate.” It was 2005, and Republicans held the White House and Congress. Chuck Schumer on the Filibuster Play Audio The Senate was established originally as a check against majoritarian impulses. It has an equal voice for all the states - 2 senators per state, and there are six year terms with only a third of the senators up for re-election every two years. The 60 vote filibuster is not required by the constitution, but it is certainly in keeping with the spirit of the constitution. Removing the 60 vote threshold certainly does move it closer to the House. Of course in May 2017, Then-President Donald Trump demanded that Senate Republicans abandon extended debate in order to enact his legislative priorities. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., majority leader at the time, rejected “fundamentally changing how the Senate has worked for a very long time.” The difference between playing politics and standing for principle is seen very clearly right here. Principles are things that don't change. They remain the same for everyone, no matter who is in power. Frequently, Republicans are just as bad as Democrats. While there is certainly room to be grateful for some of what Trump did, this is certainly an area where he was rocking the boat in an unprincipled way. If the Democrats were smart, they'd cite Donald Trump as a defense for their move.

I'll be candid…I'm exhausted; mentally and intellectually exhausted. No doubt the last 21 months have taken their toll on all of us, and I'm painfully aware of what they've taken out of me. But it isn't just covid; it's seemingly everything and everyone from the bottom up, and nowhere is more exhausting than the political playground and the children who are supposed to be our leaders.Don't even start with me about why your tribe isn't the problem, for you are the problem for being tribal in the first place, as we've documented and discussed endlessly here. You're a god damned lunatic for investing in one of these political parties and I take great joy in knowing that you will live an empty and hollow life as you watch all of your asinine dreams never come true as your party betrays you over and over again, and ultimately changes absolutely nothing about your miserable life.We have literally reached the tit-for-tat, nana-boo-boo level of politics in America. Whatever one party does that the other doesn't like, the aggrieved party takes to a whole other level as soon as they can.It's hard to tell where exactly it all started, but it was this century for sure. When the 22nd century begins and the days of America being a dominant super power are long behind us, history will record that somewhere around January 20, 2001 is when the beginning of the end of the nation occurred. Prior to the election of 2000, we were able to disagree while being polite. We were able to accept differing views. We even acknowledged aloud that ideas different than ours were a good and healthy thing. A mere legal drinking age later, we now seek to destroy anyone who doesn't see the world the way we do, and we'll stop at nothing to achieve our goals.We'll invent an entire fallacy that claims a sitting president colluded with Russia and we'll spend 3 years in an attempt to destroy his presidency based on that lie. We'll tell people that they aren't actually black, Hispanic, or even women, unless they agree with our policies, despite the provable color of their skin, ethnic background, and gender. We'll spend a year claiming that an election was a fraud despite leaders and judges from our own tribe telling us over and over again that it wasn't. We'll even storm our own capital in the greatest temper tantrum since the Boston Tea Party, and then stick by our actions.Over the last two decades, the decay of America has been hastened by watching the other tribe make major mistakes and miscalculations and then repeating them in a far bigger fashion, with no regard for the law or the constitution.In 2013, Democrats held a majority in the Senate while President Barack Obama occupied the White House.For four decades, a 60-vote supermajority had been required to advance all federal judicial nominees and executive-office appointments. Then, Senate Republicans attempted to filibuster multiple Obama nominees to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, his pick for Defense secretary, and others. In response, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid orchestrated a move to lower the Senate vote threshold to 51 to confirm most presidential appointments.By 2017, roles had reversed — Republicans held the majority in the Senate, and President Donald Trump sat in the Oval Office. After Senate Democrats, now in the minority, filibustered the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch — Trump's first nominee to the Supreme Court — New Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell engineered his own "nuclear option." The Republican-controlled Senate voted 52-48 to reduce the vote threshold for confirming nominees to the Supreme Court from 60 to 51, upping the ante. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2020/10/01/fact-check-gop-ended-senate-filibuster-supreme-court-nominees/3573369001/In 2019, Trump decided to become a king rather than a president and declared the situation at the southern border a national emergency, thus granting himself broad powers and setting the precedent for any high office holder to do exactly the same thing following. All of you Trump-lovers angry at how Democrats have handled Covid have your lovable orange man to thank for their widely sweeping and broad executive powers they have used to destroy our nation as best they can. And now that Trump has shown them the way, Democrats across the country are already using emergency declare things like “guns” a “disaster,” as was done in New York. On the national level, nut cases Bernie Sanders and Alexandra Ocasio Cortez are pleading with President Biden to declare Climate Change a national emergency, which would give him the ability to almost single-handedly order the coal industry to shut down. If his infrastructure bill known as “Build Back Better,” which is essentially just the groundwork for the Green New Deal, doesn't pass, don't be surprised if he does exactly that. https://www.businessinsider.com/cuomo-gun-control-new-laws-disaster-emergency-executive-order-2021-7https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/sanders-ocasio-cortez-seek-climate-emergency-declarationhttps://www.npr.org/2019/02/15/695012728/trump-expected-to-declare-national-emergency-to-help-fund-southern-border-wallThe latest salvo in this childish back and forth came just this weekend on the heels of the U.S. Supreme Court refusing to stop the new Texas law on abortion from continuing while lawsuits challenging it are heard. Republican lawmakers in Texas this year passed a law banning abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which normally occurs at about six weeks into pregnancy. The Texas law allows private citizens to enforce the ban, empowering them to sue abortion clinics and anyone else who "aids and abets" with the procedure, a brilliant and disgustingly scary way around the Constitution and rule of law which also set yet another new precedent.It didn't take long to see how the Democrats, this time, would up the ante on this one as California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Saturday pledged to empower private citizens to enforce a ban on the manufacture and sale of assault weapons in the state, citing the same authority claimed by conservative lawmakers in Texas to outlaw most abortions once a heartbeat is detected. Bravo, Texas Republicans for coming up with this idea! I'm not sure why (or if) Newsome will stop at “assault weapons,” why not go after all guns? Meanwhile, Oklahoma can empower private citizens to enforce a ban on pornography, Oregon can empower private citizens to enforce a ban on gas-powered vehicles, Tennessee can empower private citizens to enforce a ban on black people being outside, and Massachusetts can empower private citizens to enforce a ban on hiring anyone who voted for Trump. Why not? https://www.npr.org/2021/12/12/1063489922/california-governor-gavin-newsom-assault-weapons-ban-texas-abortion-lawThis is the lunacy we have created, tolerated, and now cheer, as long as our tribe is winning. Republicans across America are already screaming about Newsome's pledge, while ignoring entirely that he is right…their tribe did exactly the same thing in Texas, but because it's their tribe, it's ok.Lots of people are aware that it's a very scary time in America, but what most people aren't aware of is that we're still at the beginning. Like usual, we're too stupid to comprehend the mechanics of anything and we just leap to the worst case scenario; A 2021 national survey by pollster John Zogby found a plurality of Americans (46%) believed a future civil war was likely, which is asinine for the sheer fact that we are too cowardly as a people to ever actually implement such a thing. Not to mention that the powerful protect the powerful and the one thing that will bring our political parties together is an attempt by us to rise up. It's the 21st century, they don't need cops or soldiers to keep us in check; they can and would use technology, drones, and if needed, bombs. A couple of heat-seeking missiles dropped on Texas and California (to make it fair to both tribes) would put a swift end to any uprising. https://www.brookings.edu/blog/fixgov/2021/09/16/is-the-us-headed-for-another-civil-war/And that's the point; our time to have done anything about this has long since passed. In the end, while the two parties childishly find new ways to get what they want, they're really just playing games with each other and laughing at all of us that we continue to accept it…because we have to. That's why I'm so exhausted and so done with pretty much everyone…you actually believe that this stuff matters and that you have some sort of control over it. You don't, and it's embarrassing to watch you think otherwise.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

This week, the Senate Republicans filibustered the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and stopped it from being voted into law in the Senate, even though there was a majority of 51 votes. A filibuster is just, literally, talking a bill to death so that the Senate cannot get on with its work. To close off that trick, to stop a filibuster, you need 60 votes, and only one Republican, Lisa Murkowski, crossed the line to vote for the bill. Now, understand, the filibuster was specifically created by Southern Democrats after the Civil War for one single purpose: to prevent voting rights legislation and the protection of black people. In fact, one of the only times it was ever used was in 1922 to block the passage of a national law against lynching. So, until very recently, it's been used almost exclusively for one purpose, that is to block rights of black people to vote. Now, it's been used lately by Republicans for all kinds of things, but basically it's a Jim Crow tactic.
