On Friday March 20, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow said President Trump was lying when he said the U.S. Navy hospital ships would arrive in Los Angeles and New York City in the near future. Exactly a week later, the USNS Mercy arrived in the Port of Los Angeles.

“There is no sign that the Navy hospital ships that the President made such a big deal of — the ‘Comfort’ and the ‘Mercy’ — there’s no sign that they’ll be anywhere on site helping anywhere in the country for weeks yet,” Maddow said.

She highlighted Trump’s announcement that the “Comfort” and the “Mercy” would arrive in the upcoming weeks and dismissing the news as “nonsense.”

“The president said when he announced those ships would be put into action against the COVID-19 epidemic. He said one of those ships would be operational in New York harbor next week. That’s nonsense. It will not be there next week,” Maddow said.

The Mercy arrived in L.A. on Friday, March 27, just one week after Maddow said the ship will take weeks to arrive. The USNS Comfort arrived in New York City’s harbor on Monday, March 30.

A local Los Angeles NBC affiliate said the floating 1,000-bed hospital will provide some “much-needed relief” in the battle against the coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan, China.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted about the Comfort’s arrival and said he is holding a briefing upon its arrival.

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts told a school choice activist last week that she sent her children to public schools, but new records show her son, Alex Warren, attended private schools in both Austin, Texas and Haverford, Pennsylvania.

The New York Post reported Warren initially sent her son to a private school in Austin while she was a professor at University of Texas-Austin.

But, Warren also sent her son to Haverford School in Pennsylvania, while she was teaching at the University of Pennsylvania.

Alex Warren was born in 1976, making him 15 years old when he started at Haverford and 17 years old by the end of his time there.

A Haverford alumna, who attended the private school at the same time as Alex Warren, submitted his yearbook picture to The Federalist.

he same Haverford alumna said tuition at the time of Alex Warren’s graduation was approximately $11,000 a year.

Last week, while talking to a school-choice activist, Warren said her children only attended public schools.

“No, my children went to public schools,” Warren told school-choice activist Sarah Carpenter.

Warren’s fabricated narrative about sending her children to public school is likely because the truth would conflict with her own education policy. Warren has proposed eliminating private and charter schools by diverting their funding to public schools. Yet, she sent her son to a private school and was an adamant supporter of school-choice when she wrote her book “The Two-Income Trap.” Warren’s flip-flopping stance is likely an attempt to pander to public school activists.

Sending ones children to public school is not something to be ashamed of, and a choice that many parents wish they could make for their children. Warren’s lies reveal the truth about both her as a candidate and our broken education system.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has submitted a resolution to provide a pretense of House authorization to Democrats’ impeachment inquiry. Pelosi’s resolution references an “existing House of Representatives inquiry,” when no such inquiry exists, because the House has never voted to authorize it.

“The the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Committees on Financial Services, Foreign Affairs, the Judiciary, Oversight and Reform, and Ways and Means, are directed to continue their ongoing investigations as part of the existing House of Representatives inquiry into whether sufficient grounds exist for the House of Representatives to exercise its Constitutional power to impeach Donald John Trump, President o the United States of America,” the resolution reads.

For an impeachment inquiry to exist, the House would have to hold a formal vote to authorize it. Pelosi has yet to authorize such a vote, so a formal impeachment inquiry does not exist.

The Federalist reached out to Pelosi’s office to obtain an official roll call from the alleged formal impeachment inquiry vote. The speaker’s office did not respond. House Democrats claim they will hold a formal impeachment inquiry vote on Oct. 31.

The resolution claims Republicans can submit any requests for witness testimony that may be relevant to the investigation. However, Democrats can turn down these requests, and let’s be honest, they most likely will since so far they have barred Republicans from inquiry records and have directed witnesses not to answer Republican members’ questions.

To allow for full evaluation of minority witness requests, [Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.)] may submit to [Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.)], in writing, any requests for witness testimony relevant to the investigation.

In the case that [Schiff] declines to concur in a proposed action of [Nunes] … [Nunes] shall have the right to refer to the committee for decision.

Therefore, if Schiff decides to turn down a witness request by Nunes, Nunes can only appeal to a committee run by Democrats.

According to the resolution, Schiff may make transcripts of depositions publicly available online, yet with redactions for classified and other “sensitive information.”

[Schiff] is authorized to make publicly available in electronic form the transcripts of depositions conducted by the Permanent Select Committee [on Intelligence] in furtherance of the investigation … with appropriate redactions for classified and other sensitive information.

Unfortunately, that means Schiff can classify whatever he deems to be “sensitive information” and redact any portion of a deposition that would hinder his ultimate agenda of impeaching Trump.

This resolution is clearly a public relations stunt by Democrats, especially given Republicans’ repeated calls for more transparency in this fake inquiry. The resolution is an attempt to demonstrate transparency and legality to an operation clearly lacking both, while in reality perpetuating business for Democrats as usual.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) have proposed new legislation to move 90 percent of federal agency jobs out of Washington, D.C. The “HIRE” bill aims to move jobs into the heartland and economically-distressed regions throughout the country.

Just one day prior to the bill’s release, Hawley received backlash from mainstream media outlets for defending the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s decision to move two sub-agencies to Kansas City, Missouri. Hawley was berated from insults ranging from “phony” to anti-Semitic.

The Washington Post penned an article titled, “The White House didn’t like my agency’s research. So it sent us to Missouri.” Hawley tweeted disdain for the article, which described moving to Missouri as a “punishment.” Now, Hawley wants to “punish” more federal agencies by proposing the HIRE bill.

The legislation aims to move the following agencies to the following states:

  1. Department of Agriculture – Missouri
  2. Department of Education – Tennessee
  3. Department of Commerce – Pennsylvania
  4. Department of Energy – Kentucky
  5. Health and Human Services – Indiana
  6. Housing and Urban Development – Ohio
  7. Department of the Interior – New Mexico
  8. Department of Labor – West Virginia
  9. Department of Transportation – Michigan
  10. Veterans Affairs – South Carolina

“Moving agencies outside of Washington, D.C. both boosts local economies and lowers costs — that’s a winning combination. This legislation would enable Americans across the country to have greater access to good jobs,” said Blackburn.

The goal to save money long-term and increase the longevity of federal employees go hand-in-hand. The HIRE bill claims that when cost of living is low and federal salaries are high relative to the region, employees will stay longer, but to achieve that goal, agencies must leave the high-priced Washington, D.C. area.

Hawley also wants to create better access for non-coastal Americans to high-paying federal jobs through the HIRE bill. He says moving agencies to “economically distressed” areas would benefit Americans at-large as they have more opportunities to enter high-paying jobs in more than one location.

Research shows that federal employees earn 17 percent more than their private-sector counterparts on average, plus much better job protections such that it’s almost impossible to fire a federal employee. These senators’ solution might be to spread overpaid, underaccountable employees around the country, but a better one for taxpayers would be to stop overpaying federal workers and make them accountable for their work just like everyone else.
