On Saturday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy absolutely hammered Biden and Harris over their administration’s disaster at the border. Biden has invited illegals to swarm into our country. This has allowed cartels to expand their operations — especially in human trafficking — as well as made cities and towns along the border less safe for Americans.

During an appearance on “Fox and Friends,” McCarthy laid the smack down on Harris for spending more time at the airport than she did at the border after President Trump shamed her into showing up for a visit:

“Well, it seems like she spent more time at the airport than she spent at the border. But to literally say that they inherited a problem and they’ve made progress? None of those facts play out. You have a border that was secure. You had a new administration that changed executive orders and invited people to rush the border illegally. Now in May, we had 180,000 encounters. That was a 21-year record of illegal crossings. For the last three months, it has increased.”

“The time that the president asked the vice president to take on this job, half a million illegal individuals came across this border when counted,” McCarthy adds. “Those are the people we were able to encounter. I think there’s going to be more than a million individuals that get through here that we don’t encounter from more than 160 countries. And what’s worse, Pete, you would understand this — we are catching people who are on the terrorist watch list from Yemen.”

The simple truth is that neither Biden nor Harris cares about the border. They want to contribute more to the chaos our nation is facing. You can expect them to continue to ignore their growing border disaster, For this reason we need to show up in force in 2022 and take back control of Congress — then the White House in 2024. Watch the interview below:

The election in 2022 is an important one for many reasons. If we take back the House and Senate, we can oppose Joe Biden’s dangerous and demented agenda. We can stop liberals from pushing through whatever laws they want. We can alto kick Ilhan Omar off the House Foreign Affairs Committe, says House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

Ilhan Omar has long drawn controversy for her anti-Semitic and other remarks. Omar has compared Israel to terrorist organizations (and received backlash even from her own party for doing so). She’s compared reasonable, common-sense voting laws to “Apartheid.” She’s even been praised by the Muslim Brotherhood for her hatred of Israel. Ilhan Omar does not belong in government at all, much less the House Foreign Affairs Committee. But McCarthy vows to fix at least that latter part after we retake the House in 2022.

“I will promise you this: If we are fortunate enough to have the majority, Omar would not be serving on Foreign Affairs [Committee] or anybody that has an anti-semitic, anti-American view,” McCarthy said on Fox News.

This doesn’t mean nothing will be done about Omar in the mean time. There is talk of a resolution to remove her from her position immediately. Unfortunately, there is a good chance it will fail with Democrats in charge.

We have a lot to worry about in the time leading up to 2022 — and the time after. But Ilhan Omar’s brazen and anti-Semitic remarks are not only offensive, but they put America and Americans at risk. It’s unclear (and unlikely) whether she will be removed from the important position she is disgracing anytime soon, but we must retake the House in 2022 to ensure that it can happen after that.

On Saturday, the House of Representatives met in the dead of night for a rushed vote on a COVID-19 “relief” bill. Though two Democrats voted against the so-called American Rescue Plan Act, the Left was able to leverage its majority to push the bloated and disgraceful bill through.

Democrats Jared Golden of Maine and Kurt Schrader of Oregon joined Republicans in opposing this bill, which includes an underground rail line between Pelosi’s district and Silicon Valley. Republicans attempted to instead use those funds to help children affected by the pandemic, but Democrats needed their special rail line to Pelosi’s backyard. The bill also has funding of $129 billion for K-12 schools — but most of it won’t be spent in 2021 or even 2022. So schools won’t get the help they need until after the pandemic is over.

“95 percent of the funding in this bill isn’t even scheduled to be spent for another year, creating more uncertainty for families,” says Kevin McCarthy. “And in fact, less than 9 percent of the bill will be used to fund public health.”

The bill does accomplish some good, however. Parents will receive a tax credit of $3,600 per child under 6 and $3,000 per child up to 17 years old. Adults making up to $75,000 a year will receive $1,400 checks. All benefits are gradually phased out and disappear at income levels above $100,000 ($150,000 for joint filers). There will also be a $400 unemployment insurance bonus each week through August. There are also some benefits for businesses, like $7.2 billion for the Paycheck Protection Program.

Democrats attempted to shove a $15 minimum wage increase into the bill, but Senate rules won’t allow it. IT also includes a $129 billion handout to the medical industry in the form of COVID testing allocations.

Democrats hope to shove this broken and wasteful bill through the Senate by mid-March. The animals truly have taken over the zoo.
