Sen. Ted Cruz Is Right: Congress Labeled End-Of-Year Spending Bill "COVID Relief" to Cover the Pork It took months for Congress to act on pandemic relief back in the spring, and they tried to attach a bunch of pork then, too. The first bill bought them a few months – months which brought the problems with the bill into full view – but still, House Democrats didn’t seriously push for any type of targeted bill because they knew it would give Donald Trump a PR victory. So now that coronavirus cases are spiking across the country, and especially in very blue states like California and New York, and since draconian shutdown orders are forcing millions of Americans toward the brink of bankruptcy – oh, and because Joe Biden allegedly won the election – Nancy Pelosi and crew are suddenly willing to work on passing some kind of relief bill. After a few weeks of serious negotiations, word came over the weekend that there was an agreement and that a vote was imminent. But the text of the bill? Nowhere to be found. Some Democrats, including AOC, whined about that on social media, but, as my colleague Jeff Charles pointed out, Democrats in the House voted to suspend the rule that gives members 72 hours to read a bill before it’s voted on. Oops. Of course, once the text of the bill was available, journalists, pundits, and laypeople all delved into its contents and started itemizing all of the pork contained in what politicians from both sides of the aisle were claiming was a “COVID stimulus bill” or “COVID relief bill.” --Sen.

20 Stories The Media Got Horribly Wrong In 2020 It should be no surprise as 2020 approaches an end that corporate media covered a horrific year as horrifically as expected. It should be no surprise as 2020 comes to an end that corporate media covered a horrific year as horrifically as expected. From its laudatory coverage of the presidential impeachment it encouraged to the blatant gaslighting about this year’s riotous protests, the nation’s least accountable institution performed as usual, only escalating its protection of Democrats and leftism, and shameless manipulation of the facts while demanding total power to determine them. Here are 20 top mortifying moments of the media in 2020. --20 Stories The Media Got Horribly Wrong In 2020 --https://thefederalist.com/2020/12/23/20-stories-the-media-got-horribly-wrong-in-2020/ -RETRIEVED-Wed Dec 23 2020 16:23:35 GMT+0100 (Central European Standard Time)

Chris Cuomo: Get In The Closet, Serious Christians, Your Kind Aren’t Welcome In Public Life The left believes Christians should be free to worship whatever sky-fairies they want, providing it’s a part-time commitment behind closed doors. While interviewing Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, last week, CNN’s Chris Cuomo expressed concern that Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s faith appears “more central to her value system and her behavior and thoughts than it would be for just an ordinary Catholic.” Cuomo went on to suggest in an interview with former 2020 Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg that people’s faith “doesn’t matter,” but their policy positions affected by it do. What on earth does this mean? “It doesn’t matter if you have faith; it matters about your positions. Fine, you’re a Christian. I’m a Christian,” Cuomo said to Buttigieg, going on to smear the “devout organization” People of Praise. “This is more than just every Sunday. This is more than just a moral backstop in [Barrett’s] life. This is a fundamentalist approach to her faith.” Although we shouldn’t take too seriously the theological musings of a person who saw nothing wrong with Don Lemon’s outrageous statement that Jesus Christ “was not perfect,” the CNN anchor’s observations here on the role of faith do warrant some reflection. --Chris Cuomo: Shut Up, Christians, Your Kind Aren't Welcome In Public Life --https://thefederalist.com/2020/10/19/chris-cuomo-get-in-the-closet-serious-christians-your-kind-arent-welcome-in-public-life/ -RETRIEVED-Wed Dec 23 2020 16:22:36 GMT+0100 (Central European Standard Time)

8 Of The Craziest Items In The $900 Billion COVID Blue-State Bailout Bill The prohibitively long and oddly complex document that bails out states that have decided to harm their own citizens contains ridiculous provisions with no connection to the pandemic. After a long, arduous process of political agendas taking priority over helping Americans suffering under unending lockdowns killing their ability to provide for themselves, Congress passed a COVID spending bill on Monday evening, after lawmakers came to a compromise on Sunday. The relief package includes many of the expected items, while also including many bizarre items unrelated to the pandemic and its associated economic issues. --8 Of The Craziest Items In The $900 Billion COVID Blue-State Bailout Bill --https://thefederalist.com/2020/12/23/8-of-the-craziest-items-in-the-900-billion-covid-blue-state-bailout-bill/ -RETRIEVED-Wed Dec 23 2020 16:21:25 GMT+0100 (Central European Standard Time)
