“Future of the Liberal World Order”: Biden Advisor Exposes Left’s True Goals When Asked about Sky-High Gas Prices [WATCH]

Why has the Biden Administration’s response to skyrocketing gas prices been so muted, except for period attacks on the so-called “Putin price hike”?

Well, if Brian Deese, the Director of the National Economic Council of the United States, is to be believed, it’s because those high gas prices are what the “liberal world order” requires, or at least sees as necessary, to affect its agenda.

Watch him say so here:

As you can hear in the video, Deese, one of Biden’s top economic advisors, was asked by CNN’s Viktor Blackwell “What do you say to the families that say ‘we can’t afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months, if not years, this is not sustainable?”

That’s a surprisingly good question, particularly coming from CNN, yet Deese gave a shocking response, saying:

What you heard from the president today was a clear articulation of the stakes. This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm.

But at the same time, what I would say to that family and Americans across the country is you have a president and an administration that is going to do everything in its power to blunt those price increases and bring those prices down.”

And that response isn’t out of the norm for Team Biden. In a quote cited by Deese, President Biden himself was asked by “How long is it fair to expect American drivers and drivers around the world to pay that premium for this war?” and responded by saying “as long as it takes“, implying that fighting some proxy war with Russia in a nation few Americans could have pointed to in February is more important than reducing pain at the pump for American consumers.

For reference, Biden’s full response to that question was:

As long as it takes so Russia cannot, in fact, defeat Ukraine and move beyond Ukraine. This is a critical, critical position for the world. I think there’s a lot of things we can do and we will do, but the bottom line is: Ultimately, the reason why gas prices are up is because of Russia. Russia, Russia, Russia.

Republicans on Twitter were quick to attack Deese for his response which, though the term “liberal world order” is not as conspiratorial as it sounds and refers to the post-World War II western way of government and foreign relations, was quite tasteless and sounded bad.

Former White House Director of Strategic Communications Mercedes Schlapp, for example, tweeted “The Biden administration cares more about the liberal world order than American families.

Similarly, Matt Whitlock tweeted “Is Brian Deese a Republican plant? Because this is the easiest midterm ad content I’ve ever seen“.

Deese’s response was terrible, not only because it sounds bad, but also because of what it means for Americans experiencing pain at the pump: in the view of Biden and Deese, the sky-high gas prices are an acceptable price to pay for a war that could drag on a good bit longer, meaning that little relief is in sight during the typically high-travel summer months.

“I’d Like To Apologize To Melania And Sean Hannity For…” Former President Donald Trump Releases A Big Statement

Disclaimer: This article may contain the personal views and opinions of the author.

Former President Donald Trump has been referred to by many things over the course of the last couple of years. Most have been undeserved, such as “racist”, “homophobic”, and the rest of the grab bag of buzzwords so many on the left use with irresponsible abandon. But plenty he has been more deserving of. One doesn’t think that even the staunchest of Trump supporters could dispute the charge that Trump is “bombastic”, “loud”, and “uncouth”. Indeed, these personality traits are what guided many people to support him. One trait that has never really been ascribed to him the “apologetic”;. Thanks to some recent updates in the news, that just might change.

It is now being reported by The Hill that:

Former President Trump on Thursday apologized to his wife Melania Trump and Fox News host Sean Hannity for reports circulating about their reaction to his endorsement of Republican Senate candidate Mehmet Oz, dismissing the accounts as “fictional stories.”

“I’d like to apologize to Melania and Sean Hannity for all of the Fake News and fictional stories (made up out of thin air, with no sources despite them claiming there are!), being dumped on you by reporters and ‘News’ Organizations who know these stories are not true,” Trump said on Truth Social.

“The Fake News Media is ‘Crazed’ and totally out of control. I only wish the public could understand how really corrupt and crooked they are. They MAKE UP stories and then push them down your throats. Our Country is in big trouble!” Trump added. 

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who has closely followed the former president for years, said Wednesday that Trump spent the day after the midterms “furious” after congressional Republicans failed to produce a “red wave” of significant wins over Democrats.

In Pennsylvania, Trump-backed Oz lost one of the cycle’s most closely watch battles, with Democratic nominee John Fetterman successfully flipping a seat currently held by the GOP.

It was further reported by Newsweek that:

Trump directly took aim at Haberman in an earlier Truth Social post on Thursday, again lambasting her information as “fake.”

“First of all Oz is a wonderful guy who really worked hard and was a very good candidate, but he WAS LONG IN THE RACE before I ever Endorsed him, they had NOTHING to do with it…& I was not at all ANGRY,” the post read.

Newsweek went on to report that:

One expert told Newsweek last week that the outcomes of races where he has thrown his support behind a candidate are important to Trump and others in the GOP because they are a test of his continued influence and power in the party. That could be particularly important as he is anticipated to soon announce another presidential run for 2024.

But while several of Trump’s endorsed candidates scored notable wins, such as JD Vance and Ted Budd’s U.S. Senate victories in Ohio and North Carolina respectively, not all of his endorsements resulted in victory.

It has certainly been an interesting couple of week for Donald Trump. In fact, The Raging Patriot recently reported that Next Tuesday, November 15, is the date that every political pundit has marked on their calendar. On November 15, Donald Trump will be making an announcement showing that “Trump derangement syndrome” comes in different forms. Many political pundits are putting on their Nostradamus hats while others are stating Trump’s 2024 presidential run as a fact. Fox News is in limbo because of the infectious “Trump derangement syndrome.” Some pundits on Fox News are blaming Trump, while others are anxiously waiting for November 15. It is becoming more apparent that the Republican party is divided. There are Republicans like McCarthy and McConnell who want to keep the “Uni-party” on the Hill, while there are Republicans like Kari Lake and Marjorie Taylor Greene who are willing to take the bull by the horns.

BREAKING: Georgia Calls In The FBI To Assist In Criminal Investigation Following Breach Of Voting Equipment

Disclaimer: This article may contain the personal views and opinions of the author.

The state of Georgia has reached out to the Federal Bureau of Investigation to help with a criminal investigation into what they call a breach of its election system in one county.

The Georgia State Elections Board said on Wednesday that it wanted the FBI’s help in the investigation into the breach of voting equipment in Coffee County.

“The conduct in Coffee County is similar to conduct in Antrim County, Michigan, and Clark County, Nevada,” William Duffey Jr., the chair of the board, said.

KRDO reported:

The Georgia elections board also revealed it is investigating communications between local election officials in a second Georgia county and SullivanStrickler — the same cybersecurity firm hired by attorneys working for former President Donald Trump to access voting systems in Coffee County in January 2021.

The board has received documents that include an “unexecuted engagement agreement” for SullivanStrickler to forensically image voting systems in Spalding County, Georgia, Duffey said.

The move represents an escalation by state investigators in Georgia, raising new questions about whether the same group of individuals involved in the Coffee County breach sought access to voting systems in other parts of the state as well.

Duffey said it remains unclear why Spalding County was interested in having Sullivan Strickler conduct this kind of work but that the board is investigating whether there is any link to what happened in Coffee County. It is also unclear if voting systems in Spalding County were breached.

Duffey noted that he has asked for an update from the FBI regarding the status of its participation in the state-level Georgia probe related to Coffee County but does not yet know what the bureau is doing, if anything, at this time.

Voting integrity and security are at the forefront of everyone’s minds after the 2020 presidential election.

In Michigan, a volunteer election worker has been charged with two felony charges after allegedly inserting a personal USB drive into a precinct computer during the August 2 primary.

Reuters reported that Kent County prosecutor Chris Becker announced he charged James Donald Holkeboer with falsifying election records and using a computer to commit a crime in the incident.

If he is convicted, he could face up to nine years in prison.

“The incident highlights the so-called “insider threat” risk that has increasingly worried election officials, especially in battleground states like Michigan where falsehoods about systemic voter fraud in the 2020 election have spread most widely,” Reuters reported.

Earlier this month a former Pennsylvania Democrat congressman was sentenced to 30 months in prison after committing fraud that favored a Democrat candidate.

Michael “Ozzie” Myers pleaded guilty to conspiring to illegally vote in a federal election and depriving civil rights, voting records falsification, bribery, obstruction of justice, and orchestrating ballot-stuffing schemes in Pennsylvania’s 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 elections.

Bombshell: GOP Senator Declares New Evidence Proves ‘Hunter Biden Is Working Directly for Communist China’

Disclaimer: This article may contain the personal views and opinions of the author.

Hunter Biden is, unsurprisingly, once again in the news. Just recently, we reported that two Republican States, Louisiana and Missouri, have filed a lawsuit against President Joe Biden for covering up the Hunter Biden laptop story. Dr. Fauci, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, and multiple top intelligence officials have been listed as the defendant. “The lawsuit, filed Thursday by Missouri Attorney General Erick Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, accuses top government officials of conspiring to suppress information with social media giants Meta, Twitter, and Youtube “under the guise of combating misinformation,” Fox News reported. The suit claims Joe Biden and other top officials of the Biden administration have colluded with big tech to penetrate their narrative through mainstream media outlets and social media. As a result, big tech collaterally decided to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story.

It is now being reported that the Biden Crime family is slowly being uncovered as more and more evidence comes to the surface.

Sen. Ron Johnson now warns that Hunter Biden’s “Laptop from Hell” has evidence that shows he works directly for Communist China.

“I think the American people deserve the truth on this, because Joe Biden is certainly compromised. I heard your last segment there talking about Joe Biden’s soft-on-China policies. There’s probably a reason why Joe Biden canceled the China Initiative, which was (in) the Department of Justice a program to investigate Chinese theft of our intellectual property in our university systems,” Sen. Johnson said in an interview with ‘Sunday Morning Futures.’

“Why in the world would he cancel that? Is it because he knows that China knows all the transactions and exactly what Hunter Biden was involved in?”

Cnsnews.com reports: “So, no, this is a huge scandal. The American public deserves the truth, because it is putting at risk our national security, because we have a compromised president who has lied repeatedly to the American public, saying that he never talked to Hunter about his overseas business transactions.

“Now we actually have voicemails from off of these computers. And, of course, the — my concern about all of this, in terms of our Department of Justice, is that, to the extent that they might indict Hunter, I’m afraid they will enter a plea agreement. And part of that plea agreement might be to seal the records, so the American public never knows the truth. That would be a travesty of justice,” Johnson said.

Breaking: Twitter CEO Elon Musk EXPOSES The Dark Side of Big Tech & The Media Narrative, “I’m Just Fighting For Free Speech In America”

Disclaimer:  This article may contain the personal views and opinions of the author.

It is always astounding the amount of people who truly don’t know what they’re talking about when it comes to the matter of freedom of speech. It used to be that the dead giveaway that would signal someone didn’t know what they were talking about would be when they would say something along the lines of “look, I’m all for free speech, but…” and then from then on the listener could be rest assured that what would follow would be some half-baked excuse to silence those of who the speaker disagrees. Of course, the free speech absolutist need not concern themselves with defending repulsive opinions, such as those of a white supremacist or a Nazi, but they would concern themselves with the right of said opinions to be expressed. Here, I would have to cloak myself in the cloth of Volatire, who was never wiser than when he said “I may not agree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it”.

In fact, it is now being reported by Magaconservatives.com that:

Twitter CEO Elon Musk explained the real reason the media is losing their collective minds over him buying Twitter. Musk said they are mad at him because they no longer control the narrative and for them that is unforgivable.

Musk has faced advertiser boycotts and threats from power users and celebrities to leave Twitter. Most were all talk but some actually followed through and deleted their accounts and stopped placing ads on Twitter. 

A Twitter user said: “The establishment media is angry at @elonmusk because Twitter is no longer under the control of the establishment and its activist allies. He implemented meritocratic policies and fired their friends who “worked” at Twitter. The public can now openly question the narrative.”

Another Twitter user said:

“People should know the insane amount of crap you’ve received since the takeover.”

Musk said: “It’s insane! I’m just fighting for free speech in America. Twitter as a platform must be fair to all.”

Below is a partial list of advertisers boycotting Twitter:

Abbott Laboratories

American Express Company

AT&T

Big Heart Petcare

BlackRock, Inc.

BlueTriton Brands, Inc.

Boston Beer Company

CA Lottery (California State Lottery)

CenturyLink (Lumen Technologies, Inc.)

Chanel

Chevrolet*

Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc.*

Citigroup, Inc.

CNN

Dell

Diageo

DirecTV

Unsuprisingly, the self evident right of freedom of speech and the axiomatic necessity to defend it has fallen on the usual deaf years. For instance, the Washington Post had the following to say:

Hours after Elon Musk took control of Twitter in late October, the Trust and Safety team responsible for combating hate speech on the site received an urgent directive: Bring back the Babylon Bee.

To some Twitter employees, the order was troubling. The self-described Christian satirical site had been banned since March for refusing to delete a tweet naming Biden health official Rachel Levine its “Man of the Year.” Levine is a transgender woman, and the tweet violated a 2018 rule prohibiting Twitter users from targeting transgender people by referring to them by the name or gender they used before transitioning.

The Washington Post went on to say that:

To Musk, the suspension was emblematic of the kind of liberal overreach he has vowed to purge from the platform. In a small kitchen on the second floor of the company’s San Francisco headquarters, he huddled with his lawyer, Alex Spiro, Trust and Safety lead Yoel Roth, another Twitter employee and a Tesla employee to discuss the suspension.

While the Babylon Bee’s tweet was “not cool,” Musk told them, it also wasn’t “sticks and stones” — violent threats that he argued should be the new standard for who gets booted.

Since that Friday in October, Musk’s brief reign at Twitter has been marked by chaos and upheaval as the notoriously mercurial and impatient billionaire seeks to impose his will on a company famous for its deliberative culture. Massive layoffs and Musk’s demand that remaining employees pledge to work “hardcore” hours have left one of the world’s most influential social media sites operating with a skeleton staff and experts predicting an eventual crash. Meanwhile, advertisers are fleeing, raising doubts about Musk’s ability to generate sufficient profits to satisfy investors in the $44 billion deal.

Amid the turmoil, Musk has stoked the culture-war issues that helped inspire him to purchase the company in the first place. A fierce advocate for the right “to speak freely within the bounds of the law,” Musk has moved rapidly — at times erratically — to undermine a regime built over a decade to define dangerous language on the site and protect vulnerable communities, replacing it with his own more impulsive style of ad hoc decision-making.

So, this latest installment in the drama of Elon Musk seems to act as a clarion call to the absolutists among us (including myself) who are clear on what freedom of speech actually is do see it as a democratic value worth defending. There will always be those who say that they are for freedom of speech and will go about doing everything they can to show you they don’t.

“Thorough Investigation”: Nancy Pelosi Receives Devastating News, As It Has Been Revealed That The House Speaker Will Be Investigated For Stock Trading If GOP Retakes The House

Disclaimer: This article may contain the personal views and opinions of the author.

Paul is getting more bad news. The husband of Nancy Pelosi was sentenced to five days in jail after being convicted of misdemeanor driving under the influence.

But now, there is more attention on him after buying stock in computer chip companies.

GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy will likely become the next Speaker if Republicans win back the House in November. He said there will be an investigation into the Pelosi stock trading.

He expressed concern over Paul Pelosi having great success in picking the correct stocks to purchase and sell. He recently purchased large shares of NVIDIA before the House and Senate passed legislation that benefited the company.

“I would look all the way through it,” he said of the Democrat proposal to ban stock trading for spouses of Congress members. “What I’ve told everybody is we will come back, and we will not only investigate this, we will come back with a proposal to change the current behavior.”

The legislation isn’t going to be debated or voted on until Congress comes back from its August recess.

“Her husband can trade all the way through, but now it becomes a crisis?” he said. “I think what her husband did was wrong.”

“I think we need to bring trust back to this institution,” he said. “I think we have to do a thorough investigation and look at what is the proper role for members of Congress and what influence they have, and I don’t think the proper way to do this is Nancy Pelosi writing the bill because we have proven that she can’t do that.”

Democrats plan to introduce legislation next month that would prevent stock trades by members of Congress and their spouses.

The Daily Mail reported:

The framework would force members of Congress, their spouses, and senior staff to place assets in either a qualified blind trust or completely sell them off. Lawmakers, spouses, and staff would still be able to hold mutual funds. 

Leadership’s goal is to get the legislation through the House in September, according to Punchbowl News. 

Last week congressional stock purchases were again under fire after Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul purchased over $1 million in shares of semiconductor firm Nvidia as Congress was negotiating the bill to inject billions into the semiconductor chip industry. The Senate passed that bill Wednesday and the House is expected to pass it on Thursday. 

You know the issue is bad when a left-wing MSNBC contributor publishes an op-ed titled, “Biden’s ongoing struggle with the utter hypocrisy of stock trading in Congress.”

Richard Painter said that Americans are tired of the corruption and appearance of corruption in Congress.

“It’s important that Congress pass a law prohibiting its members and their spouses from trading in individual stocks while in office. For years, such reform has faced considerable resistance from members of both political parties, including the speaker, but it is necessary if public confidence in Congress is to be restored. Democrats have been discussing a plan to introduce such legislation this month,” he wrote.

Hopefully, getting rid of the corruption in our governor can actually become a more bi-partisan thing for the American people and lawmakers.

“Holy Moly”: Female FBI Agent Busted After Sharing Bed & Smoking Weed With Man Accused In The Whitmer Kidnap Plot

Disclaimer: This article may contain the personal views and opinions of the author.

It often seems that the appearance of impropriety can be just as bad, if not worse, than actual impropriety. Being caught in the act in particular, will have resonance and an effect that will not soon go away.

I suspect that everyone can think of their own favorite example of this. In many circles, it has hardly been an ideal week for the FBI. Many conservatives and Republicans have repudiated the FBI’s raid on Mar-A-Lago, including the likes of Ben Carson and Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Well, now there has been another development.

It is now being reported by LibertyWire that:

A female FBI informant allegedly shared a bed and smoked marijuana with one of the men accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, according to new details that emerged in court earlier this week.

Lawyers for Barry Croft Jr., one of the alleged ringleaders of the kidnapping plot, say FBI informants improperly coordinated with the accused, the Washington Examiner reports.

FBI informants Jenny Plunk and Steve Robeson’s unusual relationship with Croft included smoking marijuana with him and traveling to several of his militia training sessions, lawyers said earlier this week.

Plunk also shared a hotel room with the accused on occasion.

https://twitter.com/julie_kelly2/status/1558083754912088065

The shared room was meant to save costs, FBI special agent Christopher Long testified. He said Croft and Plunk didn’t have much money at the time, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Long also admitted, that during his time as an agent, he never monitored a case in which sources of the opposite gender stayed in the same room.

The details emerged during Croft and Adam Fox’s retrial. The two are alleged ring leaders of a summer 2020 plot to kidnap Whitmer over her Covid policies.

A federal judge ordered a retrial for the two plaintiffs after a jury failed to reach a verdict on the pair at an earlier trial.

In October 2020, 13 people were arrested in connection with an alleged plot to storm the state Capitol and kidnap Whitmer. Four of the men who were charged with kidnapping conspiracy went to trial in April.

Defendants Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta were found not guilty while the jury was deadlocked on Croft and Fox.

During the trial, questions were raised about the conduct of the confidential FBI informants who were embedded in anti-government militia groups during the alleged conspiracy.

Michael Hills, the attorney for Brandon Caserta, claimed that the FBI told an informant to lie and entrap group members.

Defense attorneys further argued that their clients would never have conspired to kidnap an elected official had they not been pushed into doing so by government informants.

The defense further argued that the accused were constantly high when the alleged plot was hatched.

The Post Millennial previously reported that Governor Whitmer repeatedly came under fire for draconian measures to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Whitmer also lost a court battle for extending of the state of emergency and several executive orders she claimed were necessary.

It has indeed been a wild week, to say the least, for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The sweet irony here is that it seems to have only made Trump more popular.

We recently reported that Trump’s popularity among the Republicans soared in the aftermath of the raid. In fact, there was a straw poll that was taken at CPAC in Dallas, Texas.

It was found that Trump enjoyed a staggering 99% approval rating. The same poll elaborated on this, stating that “Roughly 3 in 5 GOP voters now say they’d vote for Trump in 2024 Primary.”. Follow The Raging Patriot for more on this story as it develops!

Breaking: GOP Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene Puts Crooked Hillary On Notice, Demands An Apology For The American People

Disclaimer:  This article may contain the personal views and opinions of the author.

Republican firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has been on a tear recently. She just yesterday went after Mitch McConnell and it seem that she has no intention of stopping. Earlier today, Greene has gone scorched earth and has demanded an apology from 2016 Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in a new social media post. Elon Musk’s Twitter has reinstated the personal account of far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, which was banned in January for violating the platform’s COVID misinformation policies.

In fact, it has just recently been reported by MagaConservatives that:

“And your truth had to be banned, because your truth was the wrong truth, and this is how this all started. I’ll never forget when Hillary Clinton called everyone supporting Trump ‘deplorables.’

“Wasn’t that a nasty thing for her to do, to declare half of the country basically like we’re kind of subclass? That’s where all this started and how we got treated and it should have never happened that way.

MagaConservatives went on to report that:

“She should apologize. Hillary Clinton owes America an apology.”

Speaking at a September 2016 fundraiser in New York City, Clinton said:

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.”

Greene had her personal Twitter account reinstated yesterday and many on the left were furious.

Greene said:

“I’m the only Member of Congress the unelected big tech oligarchs permanently banned. On January 2, 2022, they violated my freedom of speech and ability to campaign & fundraise crying ‘covid misinformation.’”

“My account is back.

“Go follow @mtgreenee for MTG unfiltered ;)”

U.S. House Rep Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said before the ban was lifted:

“The censorship of Marjorie Taylor Greene is wrong as wrong can be.”

Musk said:

“Hope all judgy hall monitors stay on other platforms – please, I’m begging u.”

It was further reported by USA Today that:

Elon Musk’s Twitter has reinstated the personal account of far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene more than 10 months after permanently being suspended for “repeated violations” of the platform’s COVID misinformation policies.

The Georgia Republican’s account had also been suspended in July 2021 for publishing incorrect information on COVID vaccinations and wearing face masks during the pandemic.

The move, which took place Monday, comes days after the social media platform reinstated the account of former President Donald Trump amid a season of upheaval at the platform that has accompanied Musk’s takeover of the company.

Greene and Trump are among a slew of people whose accounts were disabled and recently restored.

It was further reported that:

The first tweet Monday from her reinstated personal account read, “Free speech is dead” and included an hour and 14 minute video she recorded live on the platform.

“I think it’s time to talk about how free speech is dead and I know that sounds like something interesting to say especially the very day that I get my personal Twitter account back but the reality is I should have never lost it in the first place,” she says in the video. 

Green apparently wants more accounts reinstated. On her congressional account Tuesday, she retweeted a list of names Twitter user @lporiginalg said should also be reinstated including white nationalist Nick Fuentes who was banned from the platform last year, and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, banned in 2018 for abusive behavior.

So, it seems like it is simply another day at the office for Elon Musk. In fact, The Raging Patriot reported that Musk said he voted Republican for the first time ever – casting a ballot for Mayra Flores who claimed victory in the special election for Texas’ 34th Congressional District, flipping the House seat red. She will be the first Mexican-born congresswoman to serve in the House.

Musk also predicted a massive red wave is coming in 2022 and suggested he is leaning toward voting for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president, should he decide to run in 2024.

CLOWN WORLD: Disgraced Rep. Adam Schiff Responds To Speculations Of Being Subpoenaed By Republican Investigations

Disclaimer:  This article may contain the personal views and opinions of the author.

Representative Adam Schiff, D-California was on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday and was asked about the possibility of being subpoenaed when the Republicans take control of the House of Representatives in January. 

Schiff is the current chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and one of several Democrats House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy of California says will be removed from committee assignments. 

McCarthy has said that the Republican-led House will launch several investigations into the Biden administration’s and Democratic-controlled Congress’ handling of several issues.

Could we finally get some accountability on the open southern border, the made-up Russian collusion, and the Hunter Biden laptop with 10% for the Big Guy? 

In his response, Schiff said, “We’ll have to consider the validity of the subpoena, but I would certainly view my obligation, administration’s obligation to follow the law. And the fact that they have disrespected the law is not a precedent I would hope that would be broadly followed. But we’ll have to look at the legitimacy or lack of legitimacy of what they do.”

Schiff smeared Republican Reps. Kevin McCarthy and James Comer by claiming that they don’t believe in recent congressional investigations. 

McCarthy is seeking to become the Speaker of the House when Republicans take control and Comer is set to be the House Oversight Committee chair.

“[Reps. James] Comer and [Jim] Jordan and [Kevin] McCarthy will do nothing but carry Donald Trump’s water,” Schiff said.

“They will say what they need to get along with Donald Trump.”

Schiff continued, “McCarthy’s problem is not with what I said about Russia. McCarthy’s problem is that he cannot get to 218 without Marjorie Taylor Green and Paul Gosar and Matt Gaetz.”

He is referring to conservative Republican representatives from Georgia, Arizona, and Florida, respectively, whose votes he needs to become Speaker of the House.

“And so he will do whatever they ask. Right now, they are asking that I be removed from my committees and McCarthy is willing to do it,” Schiff alleges. 

The California rep also accused McCarthy of having “no ideology” of his own and of only wanting to gain power in the House.

“He has no core set of beliefs. It’s very hard not only to get to 218 that way. It’s even more difficult to keep 218. That’s his problem,” Schiff said.

“So, he will misrepresent my record. He will misrepresent Eric Swalwell or Ilhan Omar, whatever he needs to do to get the votes of the QAnon caucus within his conference.”

Schiff has been lying to the American public for years and has not been held accountable. 

In a 2020 Wall Street Journal Opinion/Letters, readers discussed how Schiff would have suffered some consequences for his lies in years past. 

One writer wrote, “In the good old days if a member of Congress was caught in a major lie, knowingly misleading Congress and the American public, there were consequences. His own party would denounce him, the electorate would surely vote him out of office but perhaps he would resign in disgrace beforehand. But not today.

‘Shouldn’t We Free People In America?’ Elon Musk Calls Out Biden Admin For Their Hypocritical Stance On Brittney Griner

Disclaimer: This article may contain the viewpoint and opinion of the author.

There are three names that have pervaded the media lately in their own ways. Their names are, of course, Brittney Griner, Elon Musk, and Joe Biden.

It would also be the case that if one wasn’t reading a news article with one of these name gracing the copy, they were likely not reading the news. Well, now it seem they will all have to share column inches with each other. Even better than that, there seems to be a feud involved as well.

It is now being reported by ConservativeBrief that:

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has shredded President Joe Biden over the Brittney Griner case as he said there are Americans in prison for the same crime.

The Daily Mail went on to report that:

“If the president is working so hard to free someone who is in jail in Russia for some weed, shouldn’t we free people in America?” he said during an episode of the Full Send podcast.”

“There are people in jail in America for the same stuff, shouldn’t we free them too?” he said. “My opinion is that people should not be in jail for nonviolent drug crimes.”

It was during that podcast that Musk elaborated on when he infamously smoked marijuana on Joe Rogan’s podcast.

He said that after he appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast he and his company were tested for “everything.”

The incident happened in 2018 and he talked about it on appearance Thursday on the “Full Send” podcast with Nelk Boys and John Shahidi.

He said that taking “like one puff” of marijuana during his appearance on Rogan’s show was not a wise decision.

“I did get a lot of backlash,” he said as he laughed. “Because it’s still federally illegal.”

“It was pretty nutty, actually,” the CEO said. “So, I had to have like random drug tests and stuff after that to prove that I’m not like a drug addict.”

“So like the SpaceX competitors were like ‘Hey, why aren’t you doing anything? Look at him … brazenly smoking weed on Joe Rogan’s podcast,’” he said.

“They drug tested me for everything,” the CEO said. “Randomly. I couldn’t like you know pick a day … I had to have a whole year of random drug tests.”

“The consequences for me and for SpaceX were actually not good,” he said. “Because it’s federally illegal … unfortunately it wasn’t just me but the whole company. All of SpaceX had to have random drug tests.”

So, there might be an admitted degree of empathy from Musk, for Griner. However, just like Musk had to accept the consequences for his actions, so Griner must face the music for her transgressions.

One could say it wasn’t a big deal smuggling in hash oil. This writer would actually agree with that. Unfortunately, it’s Russia. Russia does not mess around.

At the same time, Griner seems to think that she should be exempt from paying consequences. Of course, there is the final irony of her appealing to the country that she has seemed to, at least in the past, hold in contempt.

BOOM: The Tides Turn As A Federal Judge Orders Biden’s Former Press Secretary Jen Psaki To Testify In Big Tech Case

Disclaimer:  This article may contain the personal views and opinions of the author.

It has not been an easy ride for President Joe Biden or his acolytes recently. A federal judge overruled former White House press secretary Jen Psaki and ruled she must comply with a subpoena and testify in a lawsuit that claims the Biden administration colluded with Big Tech to censor speech. Judge Terry Doughty of the Western District of Louisiana rejected a motion by attorneys for Psaki to block her court-ordered deposition. The judge decided there is public interest in “determining whether First Amendment free speech rights have been suppressed.”

It is now being reported by Fox News that:

A federal judge ruled Monday that former White House press secretary Jen Psaki must comply with a subpoena and offer deposition in a lawsuit that claims the Biden administration colluded with Big Tech to censor speech.

Judge Terry Doughty of the Western District of Louisiana on Monday rejected a motion by attorneys for Psaki to block a court-ordered deposition, and said there is public interest in “determining whether First Amendment free speech rights have been suppressed.”

Monday’s order follows a ruling from U.S. Magistrate Judge Ivan Davis, who on Friday transferred the case back to Louisiana after Psaki attempted to fight the deposition in a Virginia court where she lives and would be deposed. Biden’s Justice Department supported her effort.

Fox went on to report that:

“Ms. Psaki’s effort to eliminate or delay her deposition in this action had failed because of the swift action of two judges in widely dispersed courts, one in Virginia and one in Louisiana, and by the implausibility of her reasons for not testifying as to Federal efforts to censure social media that made quick resolution possible,” John J. Vecchione, senior counsel for the New Civil Liberties Alliance, said in a press statement. NCLA supports the lawsuit against Psaki.

Republican Attorneys General Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana first filed the lawsuit in May, accusing top-ranking government officials of working with the giant social media companies Meta, Twitter and YouTube “under the guise of combating misinformation” in order to achieve greater censorship.

In October, Judge Doughty ruled that Psaki and other high-ranking administration officials, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, should be deposed.

It was further reported by MSN that:

The development came on Friday when United States Magistrate Ivan Davis rejected Psaki’s request to quash the subpoena.

Davis also reportedly said he was “unimpressed” with the former White House press secretary’s argument, and ordered the issue be sent back to Louisiana where the case – alongside the state of Missouri – was first brought against the Biden Administration.

Psaki initially filed her request in Alexandria, Virginia and attempted to escape her deposition by arguing she had no “relevant information” to provide in the case, according to Daily Mail.

MSN further reported that:

“How much time does it take to prepare a witness for deposition when she doesn’t really have anything to say?” Magistrate Davis asked on Friday when he rejected Psaki’s request.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt first filed a lawsuit against President Joe Biden, his administration and other top government officials in May 2022.

According to Landry and Schmitt’s lawsuit, the Biden Administration worked with “social media giants such as Meta, Twitter, and YouTube to censor and suppress free speech, including truthful information, related to COVID-19, election integrity, and other topics, under the guise of combating ‘misinformation.’”

Regular readers of The Raging Patriot will certainly be familiar with Jen Psaki. In fact, we reported towards the end of last year that a White House correspondent accused then-press secretary Jen Psaki Thursday of lying about the reasoning for travel restrictions, which have targeted eight countries in southern Africa due to the Omicron COVID-19 variant. Simon Ateba of Today News Africa began shouting over Psaki as she tried to call on Voice of America’s Patsy Widakuswara, at one point telling the press secretary: “You are saying something that is false.”
