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.
Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
