(RepublicanWire.org) – Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) was caught off guard and resorts to dodging a question when asked how the Inflation Reduction Act would reduce inflation.

Multiple studies on the Inflation Reduction Act, have found that it would do little to nothing to reduce inflation.

One reporter asked Raskin, “What parts of the bill do you think will put to work on lowering inflation specifically?”

Raskin was stumped and didn’t know how to respond, he stammered momentarily and said, “next question.”

Despite the bill’s title, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) found that the legislation would not reduce inflation, and the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Budget Model analysis found that the bill would only reduce inflation by 0.1 percent over five years.

Breitbart News Economics Editor John Carney reported just 12 percent of Americans say the bill will reduce inflation. Forty percent say it will increase inflation. Twenty-three percent say it will do nothing. Twenty-five percent say they are not sure what the effect would be.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) claimed the state’s plan to bus illegal immigrants to liberal cities like New York is not political, and the Lone Star State will keep doing so until the Biden administration makes an effort to address the border crisis, during an interview with Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” on Monday.

“First of all, this is all voluntary. We’re not forcing anyone to get on the bus. Secondly, that’s part of the agreement. You’re going to the destination. And this is not political, Bill. If it’s political, it’s from the mayor who said he’s going to send door knockers to Texas for the November election to help Democrats. That’s the person who’s made it political.” Patrick explained.

“And by the way, Mayor, don’t threaten Texas. And also, he may spike the Republican turnout so much with that rhetoric — that he’s sending New Yorkers to Texas — that the Republicans might send him an award after we blow them out in November. But that’s the politics of it. They turned it into politics. This is a disaster.”When asked what Texas had to prove, Patrick replied that the Biden Administration needs to address the crisis at the nation’s Southern Border.

“Well, first of all, every mayor of a big blue city, which are most of the top 25 in the country, should be on notice,” he proclaimed. “Look out your window, you might see a bus coming to you one day in the future, and the buses are going to keep coming.” While Patrick admitted he hadn’t heard of any liberal mayors contacting the White House, he still took time to highlight the extent of the problem. “We’ve had now 400,000 people in the Del Rio sector in the last year. The population of that town is 36,000. That’s more than ten times the population,” he added. “It would be like us sending 80 million to New York. We’re desperate, Bill, we gotta make this a story — and no one else is covering it but you Fox News. And so, if we can put pressure on all these Democrat mayors around the country, maybe they’ll pick up the phone and call Joe Biden and say the border is not secure.” America needs to put pressure on the Biden Administration to address this pressing problem, before the future of the country is caught up in this mess.

(RepublicanWire.org) – ABC’s Jonathan Karl on Sunday confronted White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on the $740 billion Bidenflation scam bill.

“But let me ask you, it’s called the Inflation Reduction Act, but the Congressional Budget Office which is nonpartisan said that there would be a negligible impact on inflation this year and barely impact inflation at all next year, isn’t it almost Orwellian?” Jon Karl queried.

“I appreciate the question. We’ve actually addressed this with the CBO,” Jean-Pierre continued. “It was the top line number; there’s more in there that shows it will have the money from– remember how we’re doing this, too, it’s making sure that billionaires in corporate America are paying their fair share, making sure that the tax code is a little bit more fair, and so when you do that, put it in its totality, you will see that it will bring down, lower the deficit, which will help fight inflation.”

The $740 billion Bidenflation scam just passed through both chambers of Congress.

Not one Republican voted for the bill.

More than 230 economists wrote letters to Congress warning that the ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ will make inflation worse.

The bill will allocate $369 million for ‘green energy’ – it’s actually just one big Marxist slush fund.

The bill will add 87,000 new IRS employees to harass and abuse working Americans and their political opponents.

The CBO and Penn Wharton Budge Model confirmed that the ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ will not reduce inflation.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene files articles of impeachment against Attorney General Merrick Garland.

She announced that she filed articles of impeachment against Attorney General Merrick Garland a day after the Justice Department’s top official announced he personally approved the FBI raid on the Florida home of former President Donald Trump.

In the early morning of Monday, August 8th, agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation executed a search warrant at President Trump’s Mar a Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida. It was an unprecedented action by the United States Justice Department and the FBI. 

“Merrick Garland has weaponized the DOJ and unleashed the FBI to target, harass, and persecute Joe Biden’s political enemies,” Mrs. Greene said. “The unprecedented raid on President Trump’s home is the type of tyrannical action that happens just before a country falls into a violent dictatorship.”

Joe Biden’s appointed attorney general has admitted he personally approved the decision to weaponize the FBI in a raid on President Donald Trump’s private home in Mar-a-Lago.

“I personally approved the decision to seek a search warrant,” Garland admitted, proving that knowledge of the raid went to the highest levels of the Biden administration.

Although the articles of impeachment against Garland are unlikely to pass in Congress given the Democratic majority, this indicates that the FBI raid is quickly causing major blowback for Democrats.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Arizona officials have decided that they are done waiting on the federal government to fill the gaps left in the unfinished border wall. On Friday, Arizona started placing shipping containers to block off the three remaining gaps along the border in Yuma.

“The federal government has committed to doing this, but we cannot wait for their action,” said Katie Ratlief, Governor Doug Ducey’s deputy chief of staff.

To block off the remaining border sections, Arizona is using shipping containers stacked on top of one another. The containers are 60 feet wide and 9 feet high. At the top of the containers, officials plan to place razor wire, Ratlief reported.

On Monday, the Department of Homeland Security declared that former President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy would be coming to an end. The policy required illegal immigrants to remain in Mexico while waiting for their hearing dates in the United States.

In 2018, when the policy was announced, former Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M. Nielsen said the program would help regain control of the illegal immigration crisis. “Aliens trying to game the system to get into our country illegally will no longer be able to disappear into the United States, where many skip their court dates. Instead, they will wait for an immigration court decision while they are in Mexico. ‘Catch and release’ will be replaced with ‘catch and return.’”

The Biden administration’s DHS stated that the policy would be terminated this week because it “has endemic flaws, imposes unjustifiable human costs, and pulls resources and personnel away from other priority efforts to secure our border.”

Annie Foster, Ducey’s top lawyer, stated that the program was not correctly implemented, and thousands of migrants never returned to Mexico. She stated, “Bottom line is that the federal government has a duty to protect the states — that’s part of the contract, that’s part of the constitution. They failed to do that.”

The end to the policy prompted Arizona officials to act. Ducey plans to use the remaining $6 million left over from the canceled program to add virtual and physical fencing to the border gaps.

The state does not currently have permission from the federal government to block off the wall. However, officials believe the remaining 3,000 feet can be filled within days.

Foster said, “At this point, we are closing that gap and we’ll figure out the consequences as we move forward.”

In late July, the Biden administration authorized the completion of the border wall near Yuma. The administration cited that filling the gaps would protect immigrants from injuring themselves by slipping down a slope or drowning in the river.

Arizona officials reported that they had not seen any attempts made by the federal government to move forward on the promised plans to close the gaps.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Former President Donald Trump has no problem at all with the Justice Department releasing the search warrant and property receipt used by the FBI to search his Mar-a-Lago home. As a matter of fact, he encourages it.

“Release the documents now!” Trump wrote on TRUTH Social at 11:40 p.m. ET Thursday, just hours after the judge’s decision was announced.

Trump also called the raid on his Florida estate “unAmerican, unwarranted, and unnecessary” and said he approved of the “immediate release” of the warrant, sending a clear message that he is not concerned over the matter and that he has nothing to hide.

“Not only will I not oppose the release of documents related to the unAmerican, unwarranted, and unnecessary raid and break-in of my home in Palm Beach, Florida, Mar-a-Lago, I am going a step further by ENCOURAGING the immediate release of those documents,” the former president wrote, “even though they have been drawn up by radical left Democrats and possible future political opponents, who have a strong and powerful vested interest in attacking me, much as they have done for the last 6 years.”

Trump also said the raid was a part of an “unprecedented political weaponization of law enforcement” and suggested it could be an effort to keep him from re-seeking office.

“My poll numbers are the strongest they have ever been, fundraising by the Republican Party is breaking all records, and midterm elections are fast approaching. This unprecedented political weaponization of law enforcement is inappropriate and highly unethical,” he said. “The world is watching as our Country is being brought to a new low, not only on our border, crime, economy, energy, national security, and so much more, but also with respect to our sacred elections!”

Trump posted the following on his Truth Social account just hours after Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart wrote an order on the DOJ’s motion to unseal the warrant and property receipt.

“The United States shall immediately serve a copy of its Motion on counsel for former President Trump,” Reinhart wrote Thursday. “On or before 3:00 p.m. Eastern time on August 12, 2022, the United States shall file a certificate of conferral advising whether former President Trump opposes the Government’s motion to unseal.”

Update:

The Washington Post reported that FBI agents were looking for classified documents related to nuclear weapons, among other items.

Trump on Friday denied a report from The Washington Post that said FBI agents were looking for classified documents related to nuclear weapons, among other items, when they searched his Mar-a-Lago home this week.

On his Truth Social platform, Trump said that “Nuclear weapons is a hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a hoax,” referring to then-special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.

Trump attacked the officials involved with the search of his home, calling them “sleazy.” He also suggested it was possible he was being framed, saying the agents who searched his home didn’t want other people present in areas they were searching. “Planting information anyone?” he wrote.

(RepubicanWire.org) – Wednesday, during an appearance on FNC’s “Fox and Friends” following the raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, allegedly in the search for classified documents, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul claimed that the FBI is being used as a weapon against Biden’s political opponents.

According to Senator Paul this is demoralizing for our country because it takes away faith in federal law enforcement and our political institutions.

“I think this is an attack on our constitutional republic, I think this is an attack on the rule of law. This is the FBI being used as a political weapon against your opponents and do I think the director of the FBI knew? Absolutely. Do I think the Attorney General knew? Absolutely. I cant vouch for how far up they went and they may have tried to keep the White House at arms length. I wouldn’t be surprised if the White House knew.”

“I can tell you I’m not surprised with Christopher Wray, I’ve challenged him before on whether or not it’s constitutional to allow foreign intelligence warrants to be used against Americans. You remember when they spied on Trump to begin with it was a foreign intelligence court and warrant.”

“This is not really the same constitutional standard as the fourth amendment so they don’t have to prove probable cause. It’s a terrible thing we allowed to happen in our country. It should never be used against a Republican or a Democrat candidate buy he [Wray] allowed that and agrees with that so I’m not surprised he would also allow something like this to happen.”

“This is demoralizing for the country and it takes away so much faith in our law enforcement to say oh my goodness that they’re going to use the FBI to go after people they disagree with politically. This is a sad moment for our country.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – New York City Mayor Eric Adams threatened to send New Yorkers to Texas to campaign against the state’s Gov. Greg Abbott days after the first busload of migrants arrived in New York City.

According to a Friday press release, Abbott has bussed 6,500 illegal migrants to D.C. and, now, New York City, from the Texas Southern border since the governor announced “Operation Lone Star” in April following the CDC’s announcement that it would end Title 42 restrictions on border crossings.

“We are sending them to the United States Capitol, where the Biden administration will be able to more immediately address the needs of the people that they are allowing to come across our border,” Abbott said when he announced the plan in April.

Abbott sent the first busload of migrants to New York City Friday, saying in a press release that he hoped Adams “follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief.”

Mayor Adams reacted to the move in a press conference Tuesday.

“I am deeply contemplating taking a busload of New Yorkers to go to Texas and do some good ol’ fashion door knocking,” Adams said, “because we have to — for the good of America, we have to get him Abbott out of office.”

Adams blasted Abbott for sending illegal migrants to his city Monday, calling the move “horrific.”

“And New York is a city that has always represented the Democratic values, the values of our city, showing our compassion, that’s what we’re doing today,” Adams said.

“Because of the Mayor’s poor leadership, high taxes and out of control crime, people are already volunteering to leave New York City without the Mayor asking,” Gov. Abbott’s office stated.

The New York Post asked Eric Adams if he has asked or plans to ask Biden or federal agencies to change the open-border policy and stop the endless flow of illegal border crossers from entering the country. “Shockingly,” Adams said he has no interest in doing so.

Abbott’s spokesman said in a statement, “We hope the Mayor of New York City will come to Texas and campaign for Beto O’ Rourke. He should stop by the Border as well to see the real humanitarian crisis President Biden has created.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) asserted Tuesday that if the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Monday raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate was merely about “inconsequential archives,” then “it will be viewed as a political tactic” and thwart any credibility of the January 6 Committee.

“DOJ must immediately explain the reason for its raid & it must be more than a search for inconsequential archives or it will be viewed as a political tactic and undermine any future credible investigation & legitimacy of January 6 investigation,” tweeted Cuomo.

Cuomo wasn’t the only democrat to criticize the raid. Former Democratic presidential candidate and entrepreneur Andrew Yang also condemned the FBI raid.

Ted Cruz Tweeted in response to Yang, “Dems panicking. Realizing that abusing DOJ/FBI is going to back fire.”

Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon told Fox News that “the FBI right now is the Gestapo.”

“We’re at war,” Bannon said. “We’re at a political and ideological war, and they’ve obviously weaponized the Justice Department.”

“This had to go up the chain of command through Merrick Garland,” Bannon added. “This is about pure power politics.”

“They’re absolutely petrified that Trump is going to announce in the next couple of weeks and win the Republican nomination, win the White House,” he explained.

(RepublicanWire.org) – On Sunday, Senate Democrats passed what they labeled as the Inflation Reduction Act. The bill imposes the Democrats’ climate change agenda through billions of dollars allocated to cut greenhouse gas emissions and increase renewable energy.

Former President Donald Trump lashed out at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“Mitch McConnell got played like a fiddle with the vote today by the Senate Democrats,” Trump wrote Sunday on his Truth Social platform.

“First he gave them the fake Infrastructure Bill, then Guns, never used the Debt Ceiling for negotiating purposes (gave it away for NOTHING!), and now this,” the former president said.

“Mitch doesn’t have a clue – he is sooo bad for the Republican Party!” he said.

Democrats initially claimed the bill would reduce the federal deficit by $300 billion over the next 10 years, but when they rammed it through the Senate on Sunday, no estimate had yet been prepared for the final package.

The vote on the bill was 50-50, with Vice President Kamala Harris breaking the tie.

An analysis from The New York Times of the tactics used to steer the bill around many political landmines — including a gun safety component and money to boost microchip research and production — said “Democrats also got some help from Republicans.”

“Democrats said a threat by Mr. McConnell to block the microchip bill should Democrats proceed with the climate and tax bill backfired by motivating Mr. Manchin to pursue a compromise,” referencing Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who earlier this year blocked Senate passage of a more expansive bill.

“Any time you threaten a bill you support because you are not getting your way on something else, you are in a bad spot,” Democratic Sen. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland said. “It just looks bad. It was so crassly political.”

McConnell at one point defended collaboration with the Democrats.

“Just because you have closely divided government doesn’t mean you do nothing,” the Kentucky Republican said on Fox News last week. “Just because there is a Democrat in the White House, I don’t think means Republicans should do nothing that is good for the country in the meantime.”

After the bill’s passage, McConnell issued a statement criticizing the bill.

“Democrats have proven over and over they simply do not care about middle-class families’ priorities. They have spent 18 months proving that. They just spent hundreds of billions of dollars to prove it again,” he said on Twitter.

“But the working Americans they have failed will be writing Democrats’ report cards in three months’ time,” he said.
