The gun rights group, National Rifle Association (NRA), confirmed a likely date for Senate to take up the sweeping gun control bill just passed in the House. This comes as a shock to many law abiding gun owners as they believed time would pass before Democrats attempt to seize their weapons. 

The NRA tweeted:

The House of Representatives passed H.R. 8 passed on a vote of 227 to 203.

Democrats aren’t the only ones who supported H.R. 8. Here are the House Republicans who voted for the measure:

  • Vern Buchanan 
  • Brian Fitzpatrick 
  • Maria Salazar 
  • Andrew Garbarino 
  • Chris Smith 
  • Fred Upton 
  • Carlos Gimenez 
  • Adam Kinzinger 

In addition to H.R. 8, the Democrats passed even more gun regulation. Majority Whip James Clyburn’s bill, H.R. 146, seeks to extend the ‘holding period’ for potential gun owners after receiving a background check. The current wait time of three business days would be expanded to ten if the bill becomes law. H.R. 146 also states those conducting the background checks are legally allowed to extend the holding period up to 20 days if they do not “feel confident” in the gun owner. 

Also on Thursday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) put forward the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2021.” Her bill is designed to ban 205 different firearms and ammunition magazines holding more than ten rounds.

Liberal school districts in the failing state of California are discussing ways to spoil their teachers using taxpayer-funded state and local Coronavirus relief cash. 

The internal memos reveal multiple school districts are considering sending their teachers on vacations to Hawaii, or even paying them bonuses, despite their unwillingness to return to the classroom. 

The internal memos were leaked by a ‘Reopen California’ Facebook group. 

A school district in Fresno County reportedly discussed giving teachers “one-time payment to employees … given the extraordinary effort required of every employee over the course of the pandemic.”

A source close to the negotiations revealed that one district is in talks to give $6,000 to each teacher — and nothing for the students who bore the brunt of the lockdowns. 

A school district in San Fransisco has put forward a proposal to use federal and state stimulus money to pay teachers a one-time payment of $2,500 to be used, among other things, for “an airplane trip to Hawaii” according to an internal memo. 

Another California school district, San Juan Unified, proposed paying teachers one-time off-schedule 1% bonuses (based on their 2020-2021 salaries) with state and federal COVID relief money – on top of a $500 stipend.

Gov. Newsom said that billions of dollars in state and federal aid recently approved should help ensure that schools can offer summer programs and other supplemental learning to make up for lost time.

Former President Donald Trump showed support for his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, by delivering an impromptu speech at her dog rescue charity. 

The event — held for the Big Dog Ranch Rescue — was held at President Trump’s private south Florida resort Mar-a-Lago. His surprise appearance and impromptu speech helped raise nearly $500,000 to “help bring abused dogs from China to the U.S.,” according to the charity’s Founder.  

Trump got political as well, teasing Lara Trump’s possible Senate run in 2022. Recent reports suggest Mrs. Trump is considering a run for Sen. Richard Burr’s seat as he will be retiring at the end of the year. 

“I hear she’s going to run for Senate. I don’t know. I think she’s going to run for Senate,” Trump told attendees, who cheered.

The charity is planning to launch a rescue mission to save over 500 abused dogs from China. Their goal is to remove them from Chinese meat markets and send them back to the U.S. via cargo plane. 

The crowed responded to Trump’s speech with a standing ovation. 

Trump’s week was jam-packed, writing and releasing several statements and policy suggestions from his Florida office. 

His most controversial statement came early last week when he instructed his supporters to halt all financial donations to Republican Party RINOs: 

House Speaker Democrat Nancy Pelosi attempted to cover up for Joe Biden’s mess on the southern border – claiming that President Trump is the one to blame for the chaotic scene.

On Sunday, Pelosi appeared on ABC suggesting that President Biden inherited a “broken system” from the previous administration. “This is a humanitarian challenge to all of us,” Pelosi stated.

“What the administration has inherited is a broken system at the border, and they are working to correct that in the children’s interest,” she said, adding that the Biden administration is putting into effect “a transition from what was wrong before to what is right.”

Pelosi added that she is “so pleased” that Biden has sent the Federal Emergency Management Agency to the border to help handle the influx of migrants.

On Saturday, the Department of Homeland Security ordered FEMA to assist border authorities for the next 90 days and “help receive, shelter and transport the children” who have crossed into the U.S. illegally.

The number of children detained at the border has tripled to a record high since Biden was sworn in, with close to 4,000 migrant children currently in Border Patrol custody. Due to the high numbers of children currently showing up at the border, some children have been kept in Border Patrol custody longer than the maximum 72 hours.

Pelosi also went on to mention somehow that “climate change” has played a role in the surge of migrants at the border – arguing that droughts in Central American countries have spurred migrants to attempt to illegally enter the U.S.

“There are many reasons that go into this, but the fact is, we have to deal with it at the border,” Pelosi said.

Democrat Rep. Veronica Escobar representing El Paso seemingly fell in line with Pelosi to defend Biden’s border disaster – also blaming the Trump administration’s hardline immigration for the crisis at the border.

“This is not something that happened as a result of Joe Biden becoming president,” Escobar said Sunday on CNN. “We saw the increases dating back almost a year, and this was during the Trump administration.”

“What we are seeing today is the consequence of four years of dismantling every system in place to address this with humanity and compassion,” Escobar added.

Nearly 30,000 unaccompanied minors crossed the southern border in February, close to the total number of unaccompanied minors who crossed last year. Meanwhile, more than 100,000 people were apprehended crossing the border illegally last month, an increase of 28 percent from January.

Meanwhile, Biden has scrapped several of the Trump administration’s border policies, including the “Remain in Mexico” policy, which required that migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. cross back over the border and wait in Mexico until their immigration court date.

Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy revealed the truth on Sunday, which is that the Biden administration shoulders the blame “entirely” for the border crisis, and warned that the current situation is dangerous for migrant children.

“When people think they can get in, they begin sending their unaccompanied child across Mexico, where she may be kidnapped and trafficked,” Cassidy stated.

The results of a recent poll signal that America’s attitude on the George Floyd case is changing.

Only 36% of adults believe George Floyd was murdered by the Minneapolis Police. 

These results stand in total contrast to the results from last summer when 60% of American adults believed the police murdered him. 

Shockingly 8% of adults believe George Floyd’s death was an accident, and 18% are unsure what to call his death. 

Not so shockingly, Black Americans were more likely to call Floyd’s death a murder, 64% than white people, at 28%.

The Black Lives Matter movement took a giant dip in trust with the American people as well. Last summer 65% of adults polled said they supported some aspect of BLM. This month only 45% of adults will make that claim. 

Former Minneapolis police officer Dereck Chauvin is on trial for the murder of George Floyd. 

Earlier this week a judge slapped a third-degree murder charge on Chauvin in addition to the second-degree and manslaughter charges. 

Floyd’s death sparked a backlash no one could have ever anticipated. Entire cities were burned, police were attacked, and business destroyed. Police will remain on high alert for the duration of Chauvin’s trial. 

Leftist activists have already established another “Autonomous Zone” in Minneapolis as the trial kicks off. 

President Joe Biden signed an executive order on Sunday specifically to alter the way the federal government handles elections – essentially delivering more votes to Democrats by doing so.

The Biden move, in part, increases voting and voter registration access for criminals in prison and on probation.

“The order will direct the Attorney General to establish procedures to provide educational materials related to voter registration and voting, and to the extent practicable, to facilitate voter registration, for all eligible individuals in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons,” a fact sheet distributed by the White House states.

The order also directs the attorney general to help former prisoners obtain appropriate identification to satisfy state voting requirements.

Biden is also asking the U.S. Marshals Service to include language in its contracts to facilitate voting by mail and provide eligible criminals information on voting and voter registration.

The order is reportedly meant “to promote voting access” by leveraging “the resources of the federal government to increase access to voter registration services and information about voting,” the White House fact sheet states.

“Every eligible voter should be able to vote and have that vote counted. If you have the best ideas, you have nothing to hide. Let the people vote,” Biden said on Sunday in his remarks to the Martin and Coretta King Unity Breakfast before signing the order.

The order also directs the heads of federal agencies to prepare a plan in the next 200 days for how their agencies can promote voter registration.

Potential action items in the plan could include the distribution of mail-in ballot and voter registration applications at agency events and the use of agency websites to promote voter registration.

The order further directs federal agencies to take steps to become formal voter registration agencies under the National Voting Registration Act (NVRA). State agencies, like departments of motor vehicles, already serve the same function, and the NVRA allows for federal agencies to do the same at a state’s request. The executive order directs the federal agencies to assess how they can help with voter registration and to notify states that they are available to help.

The order directs the modernization of the Vote.gov website, including the site’s accessibility and user experience.

Biden is ordering the “director of the Office of Personnel Management to work with the head of federal agencies to provide recommendations to the president regarding leave for federal employees to vote or to volunteer as nonpartisan poll workers, ensuring that the federal government serves as a model to other employers.”

The order further directs the federal government to analyze what barriers to voting people with disabilities have and to “increase voting access for active-duty military and other overseas voters” and to “establish a Native American voting rights steering group.”

The order comes as Biden continues to push for the Senate to pass H.R. 1, House Democrats’ radical voting rights package.

The For the People Act of 2021, known as H.R. 1, passed Wednesday by a vote of 220 to 210. No Republicans joined with Democrats in approving the bill.

Still, Biden called it “urgently needed” to protect the right to vote and to “strengthen” democracy, and vowed to work with Congress to “refine and advance” the legislation.

“When I say that the president urges Congress to take action that would prevent states from attempts at voter suppression, that applies to all states, and it applies to making sure that the federal government and private litigants have the tools necessary to prevent restrictive voting action,” a senior administration official said at a background briefing.

Republicans fiercely oppose the legislation both this time around, and during the last Congress when House Democrats first introduced the legislation.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed the legislation last week as “exactly the wrong response” to what he called the “distressing lack of faith in our elections,” saying Democrats want to use their “temporary power” to “try to ensure they’ll never have to relinquish it.”

The Mexican government is reportedly growing increasingly concerned with Joe Biden’s dangerous border policies – concerned that they are sparking a massive surge in illegal immigration to the U.S. as well as providing business for the nation’s vicious drug cartels.

Mexico’s government – which is notably left leaning – is worried about the long term impacts of Biden’s careless border policy.

Reuters reported this week that, according to government officials and reports, Mexico is “worried the new U.S. administration’s asylum policies are stoking illegal immigration and creating business for organized crime.”

Biden’s policies have already significantly impacted the border situation as more than 100,000 migrants were detained last month for illegally trying to enter the U.S., the highest total for the month of February since 2006.

“They see him as the migrant president, and so many feel they’re going to reach the United States,” Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said of Biden. “We need to work together to regulate the flow, because this business can’t be tackled from one day to the next.”

The report also stated that Mexican intelligence has found that the cartels are “diversifying methods of smuggling and winning clients as they eye U.S. measures that will ‘incentivize migration.’”

U.S. policies that Mexican officials believe are driving the criminal activity include “support for victims of gangs and violence, streamlining of the legalization process, and suspension of Trump-era accords that deported people to Central America.”

The Mexican cartels changed their modus operandi “from the day Biden took office” and are now showing “unprecedented” levels of sophistication in their criminal activity, which includes “briefing clients on the latest immigration rules, using technology to outfox authorities, and disguising smuggling operations as travel agencies.”

The smugglers communicate with the migrants on numerous social media channels to update them on “impending checkpoints, when freight trains they can jump on pass, where to stay and how to navigate immigration laws.”

Those trying to enter the U.S. are now traveling in smaller groups and are taking less traveled routes to avoid detection, routes the report said were even more dangerous than the other ones.

The smugglers are telling the migrants to go to their local authorities and make complaints that they have been the victims of crime that way they can apply for asylum in the U.S. and the migrants are being told to bring children, so it is easier for them to apply for asylum.

To ease their passage, smugglers advise Central American clients to register complaints with authorities saying they have been victims of extortion or, for young men, that they have faced death threats from street gangs, the assessments show.

Mexico is also concerned that “there could be a significant influx in migrants from outside the region – the Caribbean, Asia, Africa and the Middle East – as coronavirus-led border restrictions begin easing.”

According to left leaning outlet, the Washington Post, Biden’s border crisis has gotten so out of hand that his administration is “holding record numbers of unaccompanied migrant teens and children in detention cells for far longer than legally allowed” and federal health officials have fallen “further behind in their race to find space for them in shelters.”

The radical House Democrats passed sweeping gun control legislation on Thursday. 

H.R. 8 expands the legal requirement for FBI background checks beyond retail sales into private sales of firearms. In other words, you would become a criminal for selling a family member your gun without them getting an FBI background check first. 

The measure passed unanimously with the Democrats. Surprisignly, there were some Republicans who got on board as well. 

The eight Republicans were: 

  • Vern Buchanan 
  • Brian Fitzpatrick 
  • Maria Salazar 
  • Andrew Garbarino 
  • Chris Smith 
  • Fred Upton 
  • Carlos Gimenez 
  • Adam Kinzinger 

Republican Reps. Fitzpatrick, Upton, and Smith not only voted for the bill, but they’re cosponsors on it. 

H.R. 8 passed in the House by vote of 227-203

Many Republicans warned against the bill, saying universal background checks is a slippery slope toward national gun registry. 

Joe Biden signed the mammoth multi-trillion-dollar Coronavirus spending bill into law on Thursday. His first legislative “win” is a giant loss for the integrity and future of America. 

Republicans jammed the legislation through without any Republican support. 

While the measure does come with $1,400 stimulus checks for most Americans and an unemployment benefit extension, it also bails out poorly, often Democrat-run cities and states. The Democrats jam-packed the bill with billions in spending unrelated to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Biden initially scheduled the signing of the bill on Friday, but in an effort to seem expedient, signed the bill into law a day earlier.

The Democrats are thrilled with Biden’s signature on the bill. They’ve been running a two-month marathon to secure trillions in federal money to bail out, not only the American people, but their failing home districts as well. 

Democrats have boasted their success in passing ‘the most progressive bill in American history’. 

On the other hand, Republicans, none of which supported the bill, are sounding the alarm on the tremendous amount of wasteful spending. Many Republicans claim the bill is nothing but a laundry list of Far-Left initiatives disguised as stimulus for the American people.

There is no precedent for the sheer size of this spending bill. The Iraq War was cheaper. 

Under Trump lawmakers already approved over $4 billion in relief aid – $2 billion of which has yet to be spent. The exorbitant spending has pushed America’s debt into levels never even imaginable – over $3.1 trillion. 

From here, the president is set to kick off an aggressive travel campaign to sell the relief plan to American voters and convince them it’s responsible for the economy’s recovery. 

Joe Biden just got Nancy Pelosi out of a jam.

The “COVID Relief” bill proposed by Joe Biden and approved by Democrats in both Congressional chambers will essentially erase the $650 million budget deficit inflicting San Fransisco today. Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s district is in San Fransisco.   

S.F.’s budget will be saved from painful budget cuts that were looming over thanks to Biden and Nancy’s stimulus. 

When signed into law, the bill will inject around $600 million into San Fran’s economy over the next two years. This leaves a $50 gap that local lawmakers are prepared to deal with.

Ironically, the city reported a $125 million surplus this year.

San Fransisco has been in trouble for a while now. Even before the pandemic, residents were leaving en masse due to rampant homelessness, petty crime, and sky-high housing costs. However, migration from the Bay Area increased over 30% at the onset of the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

The Coronavirus “Relief” measure passed 219-212 in the House. Not a single Republican voted for the bill.
