If Congress won’t ban AR-15s, Democratic Rep. Don Beyer (VA) wants to slap a 1,000% tax on them – which would of course mean only people with lots of money, such as drug dealers and rich people, could afford them, while punishing lower-income Americans.

Introduced last week, Beyer’s Assault Weapons Excise Act has 36 Democratic co-sponsors, according to the Washington Post. The group hopes the idea might bypass the Senate filibuster, which would require the support of at least 10 Republicans.

According to Beyer, the idea is to increase the price to such a degree that it significantly limits who’s able to buy them. The tax would also apply to high-capacity magazines.

“It’s trying to hit the sweet spot, where it’s not an all-out ban, but people’s independent purchasing decisions would be much more ‘no’ than ‘yes,’” Beyer told the Post, adding. “You want to shift the demand curve pretty significantly.”

Beyer said part of the thinking behind the 1,000 percent figure was to have a high-enough fiscal impact that the Senate parliamentarian would find it qualifies for inclusion in a reconciliation package, meaning it could pass the Senate with a simple majority. -WaPo

“In a nation crying out for progress on gun safety, we would present a plausible way forward in this Senate,” he said.

The tax would only apply to newly purchased guns, and would not apply to government buyers. The proceeds would go into the general fund. 

As the Epoch Times notes, in an attempt to define what would be taxed, the bill says it would apply to “semiautomatic assault weapon[s],” which are semiautomatic rifles that have the capacity to use a magazine that isn’t a fixed magazine, a pistol grip, a forward grip, and a folding, telescoping, or detachable stock. Other items that fall under that definition include a semiautomatic rifle with a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel, and a “functional grenade launcher.”

The excise tax would also apply to “a semiautomatic rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds, except for an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition,” as well as certain semiautomatic pistols, all belt-fed semiautomatic rifles, shotguns with revolving cylinders, and more.

“Congress must take action to stem the flood of weapons of war into American communities, which have taken a terrible toll in Uvalde, Buffalo, Tulsa, and too many other places,” Beyer said in reference to widely reported mass shootings in recent weeks.

About half of all rifles manufactured in the United States or imported in 2018 were AR-15-style weapons, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation trade group. The group said there are about 20 million of those firearms in circulation as of 2020.

New Gun Laws Approved In House Will Guarantee More Victims Of Gun Violence In America

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) panel voted unanimously Saturday to approve the COVID-19 injection for children under 5 years old.

The advisory panel voted 12-to-0 to recommend the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for children under 5; three members were absent.

“We’ve taken a major step forward today,” said Dr. Oliver Brooks, one of the members of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

Vaccine distribution for America’s youngest children will begin as soon as CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky signs off on the vote, which is expected later today.

Despite overwhelming evidence COVID-19 poses virtually no risk to children and young people, advocates for the injection insist the 18 million children in the 6-month to 5-year-old age group must take the shot for their own safety.

“This is an opportunity which one doesn’t get very often to participate in preventing the death of children, of young children,” said panel member Beth Bell, a global health professor at the University of Washington.

“Any death of course is a tragedy. The death of a young child is an incredible tragedy. We know that this disease is killing children.”

This comes on the heels of the Food and Drug Administration on Friday authorizing the COVID-19 jab for children 5 and under.

The vaccine trial data Pfizer presented to the FDA suggests not enough research was collected about the efficacy of the jab, and that some available data was outright ignored, according to British pathologist Dr. Clare Craig.

“The trial recruited 4,526 children aged from 6 months to 4 years old,” Craig explained, adding, “3,000 of these children did not make it to the end of the trial. That is a huge number, two-thirds of them. Without an answer to that, on that basis alone, this trial should be deemed null and void.”

Additionally, 34 children who received the first dose of the jab during the trial ended up contracting COVID in the three-week period between the first and second jab, versus 13 children in the placebo group, suggesting the vaccinated children had a 30% increased chance of contracting COVID.

Every state except Florida has preordered millions of shots earmarked for children, which began shipping to distribution centers on Friday after the FDA’s authorization.

In October 2021 following the FDA’s unanimous vote to authorize COVID jabs for children 5-11, a panelist let slip that children must be guinea pigs for the jab to find out how safe it is.

“We’re never gonna learn about how safe the vaccine is until we start giving it,” stated panelist Dr Eric Rubin.

Notably, an Israeli study from 2021 found that natural immunity provides better protection against COVID-19 than the shot.

Watch the CDC panel vote:

Don’t Be Fooled By MSM; Efforts To Death Jab Infants Is Unprecedented

A top Biden adviser dismissed the American people’s worries about the economy and inflation, insisting that they just don’t realize how wonderful Joe Biden’s policies have been.

Senior Adviser Gene Sperling made the remarks during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Chris Jansing Reports” Saturday.

“So, look, because of fuel prices, it’s fueling inflation, there are concrete fears of a recession. There was one survey recently that said 60% of CEOs expect a recession in the next year or year-and-a-half,” said host Chris Jansing. “The president believes a recession is not inevitable. Is that his natural optimism or based on something you can share with us?”

Tone-deaf Sperling brushed off those metrics, suggesting the American people are just too stupid to see all the good Biden has done for them.

“I think we think that too many people are not looking at the more reassuring elements of resilience in this economy right now and they’re not realizing that the American Rescue Plan put a historic number of people back to work,” Sperling said, citing low unemployment figures.

“People have called it the great return to work. You know, today, we just got out state unemployment numbers. There are 30 states in the United States where their unemployment rate is already below [what] it was before the pandemic hit. That’s remarkable progress and 15 of those states are at the lowest level of unemployment ever,” he added.

Low unemployment numbers are doing nothing to alleviate the economic pain Americans are feeling at the pump or in the grocery store as historic inflation is sending fuel and food prices to unprecedented levels.

Additionally, Americans are experiencing shortages in staple items and services, like baby formula, tampons, and flights.

This may explain why, despite low unemployment, American consumer confidence is the lowest it’s ever been.

And if Biden’s policies were so successful, Democrats wouldn’t be in full-blown panic mode over their midterm prospects as Biden’s approval hits record-lows.

Democrats Distance Themselves From Biden And Refuse To Endorse Him For 2024

Last week White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre announced two team departures, saying that WH rapid response director Mike Gwin and press assistant Michael Kikukawa would be leaving to serve in public affairs at the US Treasury. The exits came as part of an ongoing staff shakeup ahead of the November midterm elections.

Amid a slew of departures in the White House of late, many aides in President Joe Biden’s administration are “tapped out,” according to The Hill.

“It’s been a long few years. The burnout is real. It might not be the ideal time to leave with everything going on, but it’s the right time,” a senior administration official was cited as acknowledging.

Indeed, several top officials have simultaneously announced they are moving on, and despite 18 months being typical for staff turnover in the White House, the timing- ahead of crucial November midterm elections – raises concerns.

“Given the complex challenges that the administration is facing, these departures are coming at an inopportune time,” Democratic strategist Joel Payne was cited as saying. Payne conceded that, “at this point in an administration, it is not abnormal to experience attrition.”

This week it was announced that White House counsel Dana Remus would exit next month, to be replaced by her top deputy Stuart Delery. Remus had been noted for overseeing the selection of Ketanji Brown Jackson to serve on the Supreme Court, as well a slew of federal judicial seats.

In other replacements, this week, Keisha Lance Bottoms, former mayor of Atlanta, was named senior adviser to the president for public engagement. She will take over from former Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), who left the White House in May.

In another appointment this week, director of the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, Julie Chavez Rodriguez, was also promoted to the role of senior adviser and assistant to the president. Rodriquez who will be the first Latina to ever hold a top West Wing staffing role, writes The Hill, as the Democrats display anxiety about their chances to win over Hispanic voters, particularly in Florida.

President Joe Biden’s director of rapid response, Mike Gwin, departed the White House for the US Treasury Department, as did WH press assistant, Michael Kikukawa.

Vedant Patel, who formerly assistant press secretary, left for the State Department, and Amanda Finney, ex-chief of staff in the WH press office, made a move for the Department of Energy.

The most notable departure from the White House press office has been that of ex-press secretary Jen Psaki. Psaki bowed out last month to take a job at MSNBC and was replaced by Karine Jean-Pierre, who made history as the first Black and first openly LGBTQ person to take on the position.

‘Expected GOP Onslaught’

The exit of Dana Remus comes as pollsters predict a GOP takeover of the closely split House and Senate chambers after November’s midterm election.

Amid the economic woes such as runaway inflation at a 40-year high and soaring energy costs, voters can be expected to take out their frustration on the Democratic president and his party when they head for the polls to elect all members of the House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate.

According to political analyst David Wasserman of the Cook Political Report, Republicans would gain between 20 to 35 House seats in the midterms.

While the party of the president typically lost an average of 23 US House seats in midterm elections since 1974, this year might actually see the democrats fare even worse.

As of May, latest Gallup data claims the presidential job approval and several other ‘national mood indicators’ measure at least 10 points lower than the historical average.Gallup’s May 2-22 survey found 41% of Americans approved of the job President Joe Biden was doing, 18% approved of the job Congress is doing, 16% were satisfied with the way things were going in the US. There was also a 32-percentage-point deficit in positive (14%) versus negative (46%) ratings of current economic conditions.

The sporadic overhaul of Biden’s staff comes as his approval rating dropped for its third straight week, sinking to 39 percent, according to a new Reuters-Ipsos poll. 56 percent of Americans disapprove of Joe Biden’s job performance, showed the survey.

Furthermore, is the GOP has been hoping to unleash a plethora of investigations into the Biden administration in case of success in the midterms, ranging from the origins of the coronavirus pandemic to hearing from the President’s son, Hunter Biden.

Rep. James Comer of Kentucky, the top Republican on the House Oversight Committee, said in January that Hunter Biden will testify before the committee if Republicans are in charge.

“We have a lot of questions about where he gets his money, from his artwork, and from his consulting deals,” Comer was cited as saying by CNN.

Dana Remus’s departure offers good timing for the White House to prepare for possible GOP investigations, former Rep. Chris Carney (D-Pa.), a senior policy adviser at Nossaman LLP, was cited by the publication as saying.

“I think it would be more surprising if she left in the fall. I think that her timing now provides Delery more than ample time to get prepared for the kinds of onslaught they expect from Republicans in the fall,” he said. Not everyone shares Carney’s optimism, however.

“It doesn’t look good. The perception from the outside is that it’s not the place you want to be. There’s a lot of finger-pointing going around right now. It doesn’t seem like it’s humming the way it should be,” a Democratic strategist was quoted as acknowledging.

Biden’s Lies About Gas And Energy Are Some Of The Biggest In US political History

The Senate has reached a deal on gun control legislation Sunday after 10 RINO Republicans are reported to join Democrats in a 60-vote threshold.

The deal does NOT include Joe Biden’s proposals to ban “assault weapons” or “high-capacity” magazines and raise the minimum age of purchasing firearms to 21, but it does expand background checks for individuals under 21.

Additionally, the deal includes Republican proposals like expanded mental health services and school safety measures.

However, the agreement would incentivize states to pass their own “red flag” laws to establish gun purchase restrictions on individuals a judge has deemed a threat.

Biden thanked the Senate for getting a gun control deal ironed out despite the fact it doesn’t ban “assault weapons.”

“It does not do everything that I think is needed, but it reflects important steps in the right direction,” he tweeted. “With bipartisan support, there are no excuses for delay. Let’s get this done.”

The bipartisan group of senators released a press statement outlining the deal:


WASHINGTON–U.S. Senators Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Cory Booker (D- N.J.), Richard Burr (R-N.C.), Bill Cassidy (R-La.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Chris Coons (D-Del.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.), Angus King (I-Maine), Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Rob Portman (R-Ohio), Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement:

“Today, we are announcing a commonsense, bipartisan proposal to protect America’s children, keep our schools safe, and reduce the threat of violence across our country. Families are scared, and it is our duty to come together and get something done that will help restore their sense of safety and security in their communities. Our plan increases needed mental health resources, improves school safety and support for students, and helps ensure dangerous criminals and those who are adjudicated as mentally ill can’t purchase weapons. Most importantly, our plan saves lives while also protecting the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans. We look forward to earning broad, bipartisan support and passing our commonsense proposal into law.”The proposal includes:Support for State Crisis

Intervention Orders
●     Provides resources to states and tribes to create and administer laws that help ensure deadly weapons are kept out of the hands of individuals whom a court has determined to be a significant danger to themselves or others, consistent with state and federal due process and constitutional protections.

Investment in Children and Family Mental Health Services
●     National expansion of community behavioral health center model; major investments to increase access to mental health and suicide prevention programs; and other support services available in the community, including crisis and trauma intervention and recovery.

Protections for Victims of Domestic Violence
●     Convicted domestic violence abusers and individuals subject to domestic violence restraining orders are included in NICS, including those who have or have had a continuing relationship of a romantic or intimate nature.

Funding for School-Based Mental Health and Supportive Services
●     Invests in programs to expand mental health and supportive services in schools, including: early identification and intervention programs and school based mental health and wrap-around services.

Funding for School Safety Resources
●     Invests in programs to help institute safety measures in and around primary and secondary schools, support school violence prevention efforts and provide training to school personnel and students.

Clarification of Definition of Federally Licensed Firearms Dealer
●     Cracks down on criminals who illegally evade licensing requirements.

Telehealth Investments
●     Invests in programs that increase access to mental and behavioral health services for youth and families in crisis via telehealth.

Under 21 Enhanced Review Process
●     For buyers under 21 years of age, requires an investigative period to review juvenile and mental health records, including checks with state databases and local law enforcement.

Penalties for Straw Purchasing
●     Cracks down on criminals who illegally straw purchase and traffic guns.

The 10 Republicans who joined on include RINOs like Sens. Mitt Romney (Utah), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Susan Collins (Maine), and Bill Cassidy (La.).

With the 10 Republicans on board, the Democrats should be able to clear the 60-vote threshold to pass the gun control bill that will then head to Biden’s desk.

Amy Swearer Destroys Gun Control Arguments On The Floor Of Congress

Department of Homeland Security documents provided by a whistleblower to Congressional lawmakers reveal the department’s now-defunct Disinformation Governance Board was formed to monitor American free speech and censor “conspiracy theories.”

In an open letter addressed to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Tuesday, Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Josh Hawley (R-Ark.) demanded the department “provide additional clarity regarding its policies and procedures for identifying (mis-, dis- or mal-information), as well as its efforts to ‘operationalize’ public-private partnerships and the steps it is taking to ensure it does not infringe on the constitutional rights of American citizens.” 

The senators went on to claim the whistleblower documents show the board was not intended as a “working group” to “develop guidelines, standards, [and] guardrails” against disinformation.

“In fact, DHS documents show that the DGB was designed to be the Department’s central hub, clearinghouse and gatekeeper for Administration policy and response to whatever it happened to decide was ‘disinformation,’” the letter stated.

Free speech the DHS claimed were “serious homeland security risks” pertained to “conspiracy theories” about election security, the COVID vaccines, and “the efficacy of masks,” according to the documents.

  • Conspiracy theories about the validity and security of elections may undermine trust in core democratic institutions, amplify threats against election personnel, and jeopardize the voting rights of vulnerable communities.
  • Disinformation related to the origins and effects of COVID-19 vaccines or the efficacy of masks undercuts public health efforts to combat the pandemic.

The internal DHS memo also alleges that the DGB intended to coordinate with Big Tech to enforce censorship and counter-narratives.

“Collectively, whistleblower allegations and the documents we’ve reviewed raise concerns that DHS could be seeking an active role in coordinating the censorship of viewpoints that it determines, according to an unknown standard, to be ‘MDM’ by enlisting the help of social media companies and big tech.”

Specifically, the documents “suggest the Department has been working on plans to ‘operationalize’ its relationships with private social media companies to implement its public policy goals. 14 For example, we obtained draft briefing notes prepared for a scheduled April 28, 2022, meeting between Robert Silvers and Twitter executives Nick Pickles, Head of Policy, and Yoel Roth, Head of Site Integrity.”

The Republican senators pointed out that the DGB had no way of preventing ideological influence in the board’s decision-making when it comes to determination what qualifies as disinformation.

“The memo states that DHS’s ‘role in responding to disinformation should be limited to areas where there are clear, objective facts.’ It is unclear how DHS defines ‘clear, objective facts,’ and it is unclear what safeguards, if any, DHS has put in place to ensure that individuals charged with determining which issue areas have ‘clear’ and ‘objective facts’ are not influenced by their own ideological and political beliefs,” the letter says.

“The First Amendment of the Constitution was designed precisely so that the government could not censor opposing viewpoints – even if those viewpoints were false,” the senators added.

Nina Jankowicz, the board’s disgraced former chair, had a history of peddling fake news like the Russia collusion hoax, and advancing falsehoods like claiming that the Hunter Biden laptop story was “Russian disinformation.”

Notably, the memo indicates “Jankowicz may have been hired because of her relationship with executives at Twitter” rather than her expertise on countering disinformation, the senators claim.

In conclusion, the senators requested “all written and electronic communications, memoranda, and organizational documents, related to the DGB from the point that DHS first considered establishing a DGB until the present”, as well as all documents and communications related to the selection of Jankowicz as board chair.

Hawley joined “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Wednesday to break down the memo and what it means for the American people.

“This Administration wanted you to be monitored. This ‘Disinformation Board’ was set up to go after you,” Hawley said.

“As it turns out, the people that the Biden administration thinks are a threat to the American people, it’s not the drug cartels, it’s not foreign threats, it’s you. It’s the American people.”

These revelations contradict Mayorkas’ Congressional testimony last month stating that the Disinformation Governance Board was “not the truth police” in that its overall mission was to fight disinformation from “Russia, China, Iran, and the cartels” which could pose a “national security threat.”

Furthermore, Mayorkas asserted on CNN that the board would not monitor the free speech of Americans:

CNN’s Dana Bash: “Will American citizens be monitored?”

Mayorkas: “No.”

Bash: “Guarantee that?”

Mayorkas: “So what we do, we in the Department of Homeland Security don’t monitor American citizens.”

The DHS’ shuttered its modern-day Ministry of Truth last month after fierce public backlash, vowing to bring it back after a 75-day review to improve its perception to the American people.

Jankowicz ironically claimed the DGB was shut down because of “disinformation” itself, which she insisted “endangers our national security.”

Court Case Exposes Biden’s Fascist Ministry of Truth

Update (1335ET): In the wake of this morning’s arrest of a gunman near Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house, the White House is doing serious damage control after people began pointing out that former White House spox Jen Psaki encouraged people to protest outside the homes of USSC Justices.

She never encouraged people to protest outside justices’ homes,” tweeted Deputy White House Press Secretary Andrew Bates in response to former Trump Spox Kayleigh McEnany- who then provided a transcript in which he highlights Psaki saying “protests have been peaceful to date.”

In the very next line, however, Psaki says “and we certainly continue to encourage that – outside of judges’ homes.”

(As opposed to, say, “we continue to encourage that – just not outside of judges’ homes”)

In short – the White House’s official position is – or was – that protesting outside Justices’ homes is OK… as long as they remain peaceful.

And we all know what the left considers ‘peaceful’…

Bates is now the recipient of an epic Twitter dragging:

Of note, the man was charged with attempted murder.

*  *  *

An armed man who planned to kill Brett Kavanaugh was arrested early Wednesday morning at around 1:50am outside the Supreme Court Justice’s house.

According to the Washington Post, initial evidence indicates that the man was angry about the leaked Roe v. Wade decision overturning the constitutional right to abortion. He was also angry about recent mass shootings, the Post added.

The man, who is not from Maryland, was arrested without incident after taking a taxi to Kavanaugh’s home. According to authorities, he was stopped near the residence, but not at it.

“At approximately 1:50 a.m. today, a man was arrested near Justice Kavanaugh’s residence. The man was armed and made threats against Justice Kavanaugh. He was transported to Montgomery County Police 2nd District,” reads a statement from the Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh’s home, like those of other conservative Supreme Court justices, was the site of protests last month after the leak of a majority draft opinion that would overturn the constitutional right to abortion. That draft was written by Justice Samuel Alito, another conservative. 

Montgomery County Police Department did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment. A spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service said the agency was looking into the arrest.

Security has been tightened at all nine of the justices’ homes since last month, after the unprecedented leak of the draft opinion. –CNBC

At least one person, Congressional candidate Vernon Jones, suggested that Chuck Schumer’s rhetoric was a factor.

In mid-May, the DOJ said that the Marshals Service would provide “around-the-clock-security” at the homes of all nine justices. According to a spokesman, that security is still in place.

Democrats Continue Their Terroristic Protests In Front Of SCOTUS Justices Homes

Joe Biden has been defeated by the stairs once again.

In another instance of Biden’s ailing cognitive and physical decline, the puppet president tripped up the stairs on his way to Air Force One on Wednesday.

“It appears as though the president did have a slight trip there as he’s boarding Air Force One,” MSNBC anchor Kristen Welker admitted.

Unfortunately for America, this is not the first time Biden stumbled on national television.

Biden was seen stumbling up the stairs to Air Force One just last month.

Last year, Biden again tripped and fell three times in a row going up the stairs to Air Force One.

Will the media ever admit that Biden’s ailing physical and cognitive health is a national security concern and an embarrassment to the nation?

After all, 38 Republican lawmakers called for Biden to undergo cognitive testing in February, claiming his “mental decline and forgetfulness have become more apparent over the past two years.”

Former White House physician Ronny Jackson – who served under the Trump, Obama, and Bush administrations – warned that Biden’s cognitive decline is a national security risk following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“The whole country is seeing his mental cognitive issues on display for over a year now, and there’s really no question in most people’s minds that there’s something going on with him,” Jackson said.

“He’s not cognitively the same as he used to be and, in my mind, not fit to be our president right now,” he added.

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) said that red flag gun laws are “unconstitutional” and don’t address the root problems related to gun violence.

Scalise joined “Fox News Sunday” to explain that red flag laws, which have been implemented in 19 states, are unconstitutional because they violate the Second Amendment when a court unilaterally seizes firearms from an individual deemed a threat.

“They literally come into your house and take away your gun without you even knowing that there was some kind of proceeding where somebody said, ‘Oh, I think that gun might be a threat,’” the lawmaker said. “Maybe somebody thought taking away a gun from a 19-year-old is going to solve a problem. It happens to be unconstitutional,” Scalise told host John Roberts on Sunday.

“Focus on the root cause of the problem,” Scalise continued. “Any immediate visceral reaction of Democrats in Washington is to go after the rights of gun owners in America — law abiding citizens using guns to defend themselves.”

Scalise’s remarks comes as RINO elements of the Republican Party like Sens. John Cornyn (Texas) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) indicated they would join Democrats in support of passing red flag gun laws on the state level.

“It should be done at the state level. But states that have these laws in place, maybe there are some things we can do in Washington to help them with resources to keep things like this from happening,” Graham said.

“Keep them [guns] out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them to begin with because they are mentally unstable. There are a lot of states that have red flag laws. I would support a grant program to help states that choose to go down that road,” he added.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) went even further, indicating he’s “open” to a total ban on AR-15 rifles.

Scalise’s remarks are particularly notable because he was a victim of political violence himself.

The Louisiana minority whip, along with three other Republican lawmakers, was shot by far-left gunman James T. Hodgkinson in 2017 during a Congressional baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia.

The establishment has been eager to capitalize on the Uvalde school shooting last month that left 19 children and two teachers dead by an 18-year-old shooter who was known to law enforcement.

Uvalde Police Chief Refuses To Cooperate With Investigation

House Republicans have released a framework detailing a 10-point plan to “restore the American family” in anticipation of regaining the majority after the midterms.

The “Restoring the American Family Principles” proposal, drafted by the Republican Study Committee headed by Rep. Jim Banks (Ind.) on Thursday, explains that the current cultural climate in America discourages healthy families and creates a dependency on the welfare state.

From the introduction:

Strong families are the cornerstone of a strong republic. In recent years, worrying trends have accelerated and now demand immediate attention from policymakers. Birth rates have hit all-time lows. The number of marriages has dipped precipitously too. Growing numbers of American children are raised in single-parent homes—or even worse, with neither parent present. Meanwhile, many parents struggle to find stable, dignified, and prosperous work, increasing the pressure of the ‘two-income family’ trap.

Can a nation with fewer births than ever before be pro-life? Can a country be prosperous, if the traditional single-earner model is an unattainable luxury? Is American meritocracy alive and well, if over half of children are raised in family structures that disadvantage them at birth? Supporting strong families should be the benchmark for conservative policymakers in both social and economic policy. If we ignore these trends, the American experiment will be undermined.

The first big step in the plan is to “protect children from far-left ideologies like the transgender movement and racist ideology in their schools” and “other influences that cause trauma, endanger children’s health or otherwise blunt their development into functional adult citizens.”

Points two, three, and four deal with the economic challenges families face, calling for “policies that give working families flexibility in where and how they earn a living,” and deal with childcare without the constraints of “overbearing government mandates.”

Point five proposes eliminating policies that “discourage family formation” in terms of marriage and tax policies.

“Furthermore, federal policy should never discriminate against working, two-parent families that make a financial sacrifice so that one parent can remain at home to care for young children,” the framework reads.

Point six addresses the welfare system’s “cycle of dependency”, proposing new policies that “should not remove families from participation in larger society; every child needs to grow up with at least one working parent as a role model.”

The last four points address school choice, curriculum transparency, reorienting the student loan system so it doesn’t “cripple” young families, and “reforming the foster care and adoption system.”

“The root of many of our nation’s greatest challenges is the rapid erosion of strong families. By empowering parents and investing in America’s children, we allow prosperity for future generations,” RSC Chairman Banks said.

“If we want to protect and strengthen our nation, conservatives in Congress must be committed to promoting a pro-family agenda when Republicans win back the House.”

Republicans are heavily favored to take back the House and possibly even the Senate in the midterms as Joe Biden and the Democrats struggle to mitigate inflation, rising fuel costs, the war in Ukraine, and supply chain breakdowns, while pushing for extreme unconstitutional policies like abolishing the Second Amendment.
