AOC Accused Sen. Cruz of Attempted Murder. Why Aren’t We Outraged?

It was a moment of opportunity; agreement that is so rare in today’s politics. RobinHoodApp, along with other stock trading apps prevented millions of Americans from buying Game Stop stock (among other stocks) while big funds and institutional buyers could still make their purchases. People on the Right and the Left were outraged. Democrat (Socialist?) Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was one of those people, saying, “We now need to know more about @RobinhoodApp’s decision to block retail investors from purchasing stock while hedge funds are freely able to trade the stock as they see fit.”

She followed up by saying that if committee meetings were needed in Congress, she would be in favor of it. In a worthy moment of bi-partisanship, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) retweeted her sentiments, adding, “Fully Agree.”

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t accept this. She couldn’t just be a normal person and let it go, or ignore him, or maybe find a way to work with Sen. Cruz. Instead, she went in the other direction, and accused him of attempted murder:

As of writing this, the tweet was liked over 789,000 times. The question should be: Why?

Sleeping on a Bed Made of Executive Orders

Joe Biden has been a busy man in his first week in office. The newly elected President has already signed over 30 executive orders and proclamations. For a man who once criticized President Trump for his abundance of executive orders, it sure seems like Joe Biden is enjoying signing his name on new orders.

Biden was Wrong: ANTIFA is Real, and They are Violent

When Joe Biden said that ANTIFA was just an idea during a presidential debate, he was wrong. Or, he lied. Or, he thinks that the American public is so damn dumb that they’ll believe this nonsense, especially after The View and CNN explain why he’s right.

After Biden’s inauguration, and the violence and destruction that descended on Portland and Seattle, it became even more clear to all Americans that ANTIFA is real, and was never targeting the Trump Administration. Signs from the riots read, “We don’t want Biden – we want revenge!” and “We are ungovernable.” They’re telling you that it was never about Trump. They’re telling you that the people who said, “If you vote for Biden, everything will be normal again!” were fools…or simply outrageously naive. The media that echoed these sentiments? Leftist Stepford wives.

ANTIFA are not just violent, ANTIFA is violence. They were – they are! – targeting America. They hate America, and they want to burn it all down. The Mayor of Bellingham, WA, Seth Fleetwood, had to be rushed from City Hall because ANTIFA stormed the building. How is this any different than the US Capitol?

According to DeeDee Sun of KIRO7, “They also tore down the American flag outside. Stole a KGMI journalist’s mic and threw a hot drink on him.”

Biden and Buttigieg: The Midwest has no friends in Washington

The move to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline is a blow to the Midwest, and reminder that in a Joe Biden Administration, they are alone.

The move – revoking the permits for the pipeline, which moves oil from the tar sands in Canada to the refineries in Texas – is a threat to not just energy jobs (and in many ways energy independence,) but to growth opportunities in the Midwest, and America at large.

What should be noted is the total lack of caring from President Biden, and his soon to be Transportation Secretary, former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg. When pressed by Sen. Ted Cruz during his confirmation hearing on the new Administration’s pipeline shutdown, and the elimination of 11,000 jobs, Buttiegieg responded, basically, “It’s cool by me.”

Mayor Pete Buttigieg speaks to Sen. Ted Cruz at his confirmation hearing to become Secretary of Transportation

I think the most important thing is to make sure that we make good on the promise of the president’s climate vision as being on that, on net, creates far more jobs. Millions, we hope. I know that won’t just happen. We’ll have to do a lot of work to make sure that’s real. But getting this right means ensuring there’s more good paying union jobs for all Americans. Delivered from that infrastructure vision.

When Sen. Cruz asked Buttigieg whether others would be getting the displaced jobs, Buttigieg answered:

The answer is that we are very eager to see those workers continue to be employed in good-paying union jobs. Even if they might be different ones.

Biden Is President. Now, We Get Back To Work

Just as we have done for the past two centuries, a peaceful transition of power took place. Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President. Tony Katz may not be happy about who is in the Oval Office, but he respects and admires how we, as a country, can come together and do this. Katz discusses Biden’s first hour in office and the need to go back to work.

It’s Very Important to Take a Breath

There is a lot coming at us right now. Social media is being banned, the political right is being vilified after the riot at the Capitol and Joe Biden is about to start his first time. Tony Katz wants to slow it down, take a breath and really examine what we are looking at and what the first 100 days of the Biden Presidency will look like

The Myth of Unity. The Horror of the Reprogramming Mob. Tony Katz on Newsmax.

Tony Katz appeared on Newsmax with John Bachman and Kristin Tate to discuss the myth of unity, “reprogramming Republicans” and the difference between the Left and the Right when it comes to disagreement and differences of opinion.

Rep. Devin Nunes: Parler, Amazon, Free Speech and Racketeering

California Republican Devin Nunes spoke with Tony Katz about bringing racketeering charges against Amazon and others for working together to remove social media app Parler from, well, existing.

It’s Difficult To Legally Prove That Trump Incited A Riot

Emily Zanotti has argued in front of the Supreme Court, so she knows a thing or two about what makes a good case. The second impeachment trial of President Trump has begun and it appears the Democrats want to charge him with “inciting a riot.”

As Emily explains, it is extremely difficult to prove the charge of inciting a riot. She breaks down the legal standard it would take.

Where Do Pence & Trump Stand After All This?

There has been plenty of rumors and speculation about the relationship between Vice President Pence and President Trump after what occurred during the objections to certifying electors as well as the Capitol Hill riot. It was reported that Pence and Trump hadn’t spoken for a week. Tony Katz has spent time with Pence, but wouldn’t call him a close friend. He knows enough though to make an educated guess about what is going on in the Vice President’s head.
