Arizona’s Andy Biggs will become the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, taking over for North Carolina’s Mark Meadows.

Biggs was elected by caucus members to succeed Meadows in a Tuesday meeting.

The House Freedom Caucus is a conservative congressional group known for a willingness to challenge the Republican establishment, creating thorns in the side of Paul Ryan and John Boehner alike. Most in the caucus are strong supporters of President Trump.

Since arriving in the House of Representatives in 2017 to represent Arizona’s Fifth congressional district, Biggs has made a name for himself as a liberty-inclined conservative willing to take controversial stands that at times leave him alone in the broader Republican caucus.

Biggs won a heated primary election for nomination in the deep-red Mesa district, taking over for retiring Republican Matt Salmon.

He was one of a handful of Republican legislators to vote against a measure expressing unconditional support for America’s role in the costly NATO(North Atlantic Treaty Organization) international treaty.

Outgoing caucus Chairman Mark Meadows expressed his support for Biggs in a statement after his election. “I’ve been honored and humbled to serve as chairman of the Freedom Caucus for the last two and a half years, and I can’t think of a better person to pass the torch to than Andy Biggs.” 

Congressman Biggs also emphasized his readiness to take on a challenging and contentious congressional position, in an era where radical Democrats are hungry to use their majority in the chamber for pointless impeachment proceedings and other wide-ranging investigations hoping to nail Trump and Republicans for supposed wrongdoing.

I’m grateful for the trust of my colleagues in selecting me to serve as the next chairman of the House Freedom Caucus. The Freedom Caucus has revolutionized Capitol Hill because our members endeavor to keep our promises to the American people.”

Congressional Republicans are limited in what they can accomplish in the House Majority, but it’s unlikely Biggs plans to provide empty, token opposition to Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats. It’s unclear if Republican Caucus leaders plan on having his back.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time

The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.

She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.

“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.

“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.

Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.

“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.

Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.

“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.

President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
