The latest episode in the Democrats’ popular series “Let’s turn things on their heads” features Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
This week, the Massachusetts Democrat tweeted , “If Republicans hadn’t spent nearly $2 trillion on the Trump tax cuts, and if they hadn’t made it easier for rich people to cheat on their taxes, the US wouldn’t need a debt ceiling increase this year. Or next year.”
This fits right in with the Democrats’ other laughable inversions, blaming the GOP for inflation, migrant chaos at the southern border, and other national ills that are manifestly the fault of President Joe Biden and his party.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has her hands full dealing with the fallout over four tranches of classified information being discovered at President Joe Biden’s former office and personal residence, frequently referring reporters to the White House Counsel’s Office over the most basic of questions.
The frustration came to a head at Tuesday’s press briefing when Cameroonian journalist Simon Ateba, the White House correspondent for Today News Africa, questioned whether Jean-Pierre was “fit” for her job.
“Karine, since you don’t have any answer on the classified documents, you don’t seem a good fit for this job,” Ateba said. “We do not seem to have any answer from you.”
Admin After Briefing From DNI on Classified Docs
1/25/2023 8:03:53 PM
The Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines briefed the Senate Intelligence Committee regarding the classified documents found in the possession of Joe Biden, Mike Pence, and Donald Trump.
But perhaps saying “briefed” is not quite correct. She went in and said something to them, but it sounds like everyone coming out of the meeting, including Democrats, weren’t happy with what they were being told. The Biden administration faiiled to come across with the documents that they wanted to see and evaluate — in their proper oversight capacity — how much national security may have been compromised.
According to the ranking member on the Intelligence Committee, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL),
How America’s Abrams, Germany’s Leopard
2 and Britain’s Challenger compare to
Russia’s outdated T-72 tanks as they are
sent to help defend Ukraine
1/25/2023 8:00:12 PM
The United States, Germany and more Western allies are poised to join Britain in sending heavy tanks to Ukraine in a move that could prove a gamechanger in Kyiv’s war effort.
Washington is sending 31 of its fast-moving M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine, while Berlin will initially supply at least 14 Leopard 2 tanks and give permission to other NATO countries – including Poland, Finland and Denmark – to deliver their own to Kyiv.
Britain was the first NATO country to announce it would send 14 next-generation battle tanks to Ukraine in the form of the Challenger 2 tanks.
And French President Emmanuel Macron said on Sunday that he asked his defence minister
2024 running mate: Steve Bannon claims
‘ambitious’ Republican firebrand is lining
up to be on the ex-President’s shortlist
1/25/2023 7:49:18 PM
She has served as a Donald Trump intermediary on the House floor during Kevin McCarthy’s speakership battle, and now Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene thinks she could be his presidential running mate.
The second-term lawmaker from Georgia is seeking to run alongside Trump as he seeks to reclaim the White House four years after refusing to concede, skipping the inauguration claiming fraud, and telling supporters to ‘fight like hell’ the day of the Capitol riot, NBC reported.
Green has carried the MAGA banner inside Congress and kept lines open to the GOP base, with appearances on former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon’s podcast.
Claim McCarthy Cut Deal to Remove Them
from Certain Committees During Speaker’s Race
1/25/2023 6:41:04 PM
Claim: Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Eric Swalwell (D-CA), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) claimed that Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) removed them from certain committee assignments as a result of a deal with fellow Republicans during the speakership race.
Verdict: False. McCarthy directed a letter to Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) on Tuesday, reaffirming that he was “rejecting” Schiff and Swalwell’s appointments to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI). The congressmen from California released a joint statement with Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who McCarthy has said should not serve in the Foreign Affairs Committee. The trio falsely claimed that McCarthy “struck a corrupt bargain in his desperate, and nearly failed, attempt

House Oversight Chairman James Comer on Wednesday announced an investigation into Hunter Biden’s art-selling scheme.
Rep. Comer sent a letter to Hunter Biden’s art dealer, Georges Berges, seeking information on anonymous purchasers of Hunter Biden’s garbage artwork.
“The Committee on Oversight and Accountability is investigating President Joe Biden and his family’s foreign and domestic influence peddling schemes,” wrote Chairman Comer. “For over a decade, the Biden family has profited from Joe Biden’s positions as a public official. Your arrangement with Hunter Biden raises serious ethics concerns and

Jared Kushner’s baby brother will be picking up the check the next time he has dinner with his better-known sibling.
Josh Kushner, founder of Thrive Capital, has seen his personal fortune soar to an estimated $3.7 billion, according to Bloomberg’s calculations, after his firm secured a major investment from several billionaires.
Disney CEO Bob Iger and KKR co-founder Henry Kravis were part of a group that paid $175 million to acquire a minority stake in Thrive Capital, the firm announced on Tuesday.
The infusion of cash allowed the 37-year-old Kushner, who is married to supermodel and TV personality Karlie Kloss, to eclipse the net worth

WASHINGTON — House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) rumbled with a reporter who questioned Tuesday why he gave admitted liar George Santos (R-NY) committee seats but booted two Democrats from the House intelligence panel.
“You said that lying to us is something that means you should be removed from the Intel Committee. But why is it not a factor [for Santos]?” PBS reporter Lisa Desjardins asked.
“Well, let me be very—” McCarthy began.
“This is a man who should not be on committees,” Desjardins interjected.
“He’s gotten elected by his district, so–” the speaker tried again, before the PBS reporter demanded he “answer my question.”

The National Archives has missed the House Oversight Committee’s deadline to comply with requested documents related to President Joe Biden’s classified document scandal, according to the committee’s spokesperson.
On January 10, the committee demanded the National Archives hand over records detailing the interactions between Biden’s attorneys and the Justice Department on or before January 24.
“The National Archives has not produced the requested documents to the Committee at this time,” the committee spokesperson told reporters Tuesday. “Chairman Comer’s request still stands and anticipates moving forward with a transcribed interview with NARA’s general counsel soon.”
long-range missiles: Ukraine’s President

the US finally agreed to send Kyiv tanks
to battle Putin’s forces following diplomatic row
1/25/2023 5:24:39 PM
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky today declared he wanted Western allies to send long-range missiles and jets to his war-torn country to help repel Russian troops.
‘I’ve spoken with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg today… We must also open deliveries of long-range missiles to Ukraine, it is important – we must expand our cooperation in artillery,’ Zelensky said, also adding Ukraine needed jets.
‘This is a dream. And this is a task.’
Zelensky’s latest plea comes just hours after the US and Germany both announced they would send battalions of M1 Abrams and Leopard 2 tanks to bolster the efforts of Ukraine’s armed forces to push Vladimir Putin’s troops back

Microsoft co-founder and billionaire Bill Gates believes one of the solutions to combat climate change is to stop cows from burping.
Gates invested in a startup company in Australia that is exploring dietary supplements for cows in an effort to contain ‘greenhouse gas emissions.’
“Australian climate technology company Rumin8 has closed Phase 2 of its seed funding round, led by Bill Gates-founded Breakthrough Energy Ventures (BEV) with participation from Andrew and Nicola Forrest’s agri-food business Harvest Road Group,” according to the company’s news release.
