Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) is urging President Donald Trump to veto an omnibus spending bill that increases government spending by $1.4 trillion that was passed earlier today by the U.S. House.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) worked hard to prepare the omnibus spending proposal, which includes a host of provisions completely unrelated to funding the government. The President is expected to go along with the dog and pony show and sign the legislation.
”The president is poised to sign it and to keep the government open,” said White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.
There are many nuggets hidden in the spending legislation, including $428 billion in three Obamacare tax cuts over a 10 year span. While that may be supported by conservatives, there is also money allocated that will be used to push gun control in the omnibus.
House Democrats are celebrating that $25 million will be spent on producing propaganda that used to justify gun control.
“I secured a historic $25 million investment for gun violence prevention research,” House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey (D-NY) wrote on Monday, claiming that the “best public health researchers in the country will be put to work to identify ways to reduce injury and death due to firearms.”
Half of the $25 million will go to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) while the other half will go to National Institutes of Health (NIH), according to a report from ABC News.
“Given violence and suicide have a number of causes, the agreement recommends the CDC take a comprehensive approach to studying these underlying causes and evidence-based methods of prevention of injury, including crime prevention,” the bill states.
Left-wing bureaucrats and academics are chomping at the bit to use this money to create new justifications for unconstitutional restrictions on firearms.
“It’s the biggest amount that the federal government has ever put into federal firearms research,” said Dr. Mark Rosenberg, who led the CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control throughout the 1990s.
“It signals an end to the drought of knowledge about preventing this significant problem,” he added.
“Year after year Congress has been basically maintained this ban out of this kind of faulty idea that gun violence research has somehow partisan and so as a result it is one of the most understudied causes of death in the United States and it’s just really fantastic to see some movement from Congress,” said gun control advocate Jonathan Metzl, who works as professor and director of Center for Medicine, Health, and Society at Vanderbilt University.
“It’s without a doubt the most meaningful step that federal lawmakers have taken to addressing gun violence as a public health emergency,” said Ted Alcorn, an associate at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University.
“It’s one thing to make statements about our concerns about gun violence. It’s something entirely different to put cash on the table,” he added.
In order for President Trump to stop the advancement of gun control and fulfill his mandate to drain the swamp, he must take Roy’s advice and let Congress own this gargantuan and irresponsible spending bill.
COWARD: Sen. James Lankford Grovels to Black Constituents for Opposing Electoral Fraud
Lankford is an ethnomasochist.
Since last week’s siege on the U.S. Capitol, there has been a tremendous amount of groveling from Republican cowards desperate to save face and avoid media scrutiny, but Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) has taken it to a new low.
Lankford issued a letter apologizing to his black constituents for opposing electoral fraud. He is sorry because the areas that committed the most fraud just so happened to be diverse inner-city communities. Multiculturalism means that fraud is ignored, and it is our national strength. This is the credo of the New America.
The Oklahoma senator wrote that his efforts “caused a firestorm of suspicion among many of my friends, particularly in Black communities around the state. I was completely blindsided, but I also found a blind spot.”
“What I did not realize was all of the national conversation about states like Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, was seen as casting doubt on the validity of votes coming out of predominantly Black communities like Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Detroit,” he wrote.
“After decades of fighting for voting rights, many Black friends in Oklahoma saw this as a direct attack on their right to vote, for their vote to matter, and even a belief that their votes made an election in our country illegitimate,” he added.
Lankford’s pathetic obsequious letter apologizing for fighting the vote steal shows why the Republican Party is dying, and Republican politicians are despised by their own rank-and-file party members. There is little difference between a GOP elected official and a social justice activist these days.
“I can assure you, my intent to give a voice to Oklahomans who had questions was never also an intent to diminish the voice of any Black American. I should have recognized how what I said and what I did could be interpreted by many of you,” he wrote. “I deeply regret my blindness to that perception, and for that I am sorry.”
Big League Politics has reported on how the Capitol riot forced RINOs to show their true colors and publicly express the disdain they have always held for President Trump:
Mitch McConnell is reportedly “pleased” about the possibility of Trump’s second impeachment, viewing it as an opportunity to purge Trump from the Republican Party and whatever else Conservative Inc. deems “toxic.”
In a New York Times report published Monday afternoon, Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman write that the outgoing Senate Majority Leader believes Trump committed “impeachable offenses.” McConnell also welcomes impeachment in order to justify dumping Trump and shedding his influence over the GOP.
“Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, has indicated that he wants to see the specific article of impeachment that the House is set to approve on Wednesday, which is expected to draw support from as many as a dozen Republicans, potentially including Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the party’s No. 3 in the House,” the report reads. “But he has made clear in private discussions that he believes now is the moment to move on the weakened lame duck, whom he blames for causing Republicans to lose the Senate.”
The Republican Party can either become the Trump party moving forward or go extinct. With cowards like Lankford among the ranks, they may actually choose extinction because they’re that weak.
