Victory In The House!

CAPITOL HILL — House Republicans passed President Trump’s Obamacare replacement bill Thursday.

The “Opt Out” bill was supported by the House Freedom Caucus, which derailed the White House’s previous replacement bill because it too closely mirrored Obamacare.

Republicans reached the magic number of 216 Yea votes at 2:18 PM Eastern.

After convening meetings with Senator Rand Paul, Trump backed the new bill, and Republicans marched largely in lockstep, despite some moderate and establishment Republican backlash on the Hill this week.

Notably, House Speaker Paul Ryan did not thank the president in his remarks before the vote, but rather praised Vice President Pence, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, and others.

Trump announced a Republican victory press conference in the White House Rose Garden before the vote count was called. House Republicans planned to get on buses, which were ready to go, to take them to the Rose Garden. Republicans also had cases of beer ready for the celebration.

Democrats chanted their disapproval for the vote count after the results were gaveled.

The bill gained two Democratic votes before the count was gaveled. CBS News Radio correspondent Steven Portnoy immediately said on air on CBSN that it could be an electronic “mistake,” and that Democrats should keep their eye on that to potentially correct the “mistake.” One of the Democrats then switched his/her vote, prompting Portnoy to note the correction of the “error” and remark that the vote is not over. The other Democrat then pulled their Yea vote.

After Facebook Censors ANTIFA Warning Video, Georgia Congressional Front-Runner Doubles Down with TV Ad Buy

Marjorie Greene will not stop exposing ANTIFA no matter the consequences.

Georgia GOP Congressional candidate Marjorie Greene is doubling down after Facebook censored her video calling out ANTIFA domestic terrorists and refused to allow her to promote it on their monopoly platform.

“This content also violates our violence and incitement policy within our Community Standards. You can read more about that here. This post will be removed,“ Facebook told Greene’s campaign after they attempted to promote a video about the far-left terror group.

This is the video released by Greene that Facebook does not want you to see:

Even though social media has censored her message, she is continuing to push the message about the evils of ANTIFA, a group which has supplanted ISIS as the top threat to the American national security. She released an explosive new ad that could potentially potentially millions of Georgians before the upcoming primary election next week.

“ANTIFA terrorists have declared war on America,” Greene says in the ad. “Rioting, looting and burning our cities. George Soros, Hollywood elites, and Joe Biden’s staff are funding ANTIFA.”

“I have a message for ANTIFA terrorists,” she said as she locked and loaded her rifle. “Stay out of Northwest Georgia. You won’t burn our churches, loot our businesses or destroy our homes. It’s time to take our country back, save America, stop socialism!”

The full ad can be seen here:

Moreso than perhaps any other candidate running for office in the United States, Greene’s messaging is congruent with the White House with regards to ANTIFA. President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr recently announced that they would be treating ANTIFA as a terrorist organization, a move that Big League Politics has been advocating for years.

“It is time to stop watching the violence and to confront and stop it. The continued violence and destruction of property endangers the lives and livelihoods of others, and interferes with the rights of peaceful protesters, as well as all other citizens,” Attorney General Bill Barr said in a statement about the violence.

“It also undercuts the urgent work that needs to be done – through constructive engagement between affected communities and law enforcement leaders – to address legitimate grievances. Preventing reconciliation and driving us apart is the goal of these radical groups, and we cannot let them succeed,” he continued.

Greene is running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in Georgia’s 14th Congressional district against several competitors. The primary election is set to take place on June 9.
