McConnell: ‘Great chance’ of deal with Biden on infrastructure
Breitbart reports on a little admission by Mitch McConnell which might dog us and our children for years.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” that there was a “great chance” of getting a deal with President Joe Biden and the Democrats on infrastructure.
McConnell was commenting on the meeting he attended earlier with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), the president and Vice President Kamala Harris in the Oval Office.
Baier said, “Tell us about that meetings. How do you describe it? What did you take from it?”
McConnell said, “Well, no staff in there, just the six of us, the vice president was there. We had a very cordial meeting for about an hour and a half and discussed an issue upon which there is a great chance we could get a bipartisan outcome, and that’s infrastructure. I did make clear to the president that we’re not willing to go back and raise taxes.”
He continued, “I think the take away from the meeting, Bret, is that I think both sides would like to get an outcome.”
McConnell said, “I think they want a deal this time. I think they want a deal with us because I don’t think they think they can pass this second effort through a reconciliation package. In other words, I don’t think they can get their own ducks in a row, and so they are coming to us, and that’s generally how you reach bipartisan agreements plus, the subject matter is pretty popular on both sides of the aisle.”

Uncle Joe has already been on a spending spree. We don’t need Uncle Mitch and his globalist friends encouraging him.
As detailed below, we already have the beginning parts of inflation. We don’t need the hyperinflation that comes with the spending that Joe and Mitch seem to want to push through.
Joe sure isn’t focused on making life better for citizens
White House: Joe Biden focused on making life better for migrants, not visiting the border
Breitbart comments on an admission by Jen Psaki on what Joe has done on the border.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday that President Joe Biden was focused on making life better for unattended migrant minors on the border, not traveling to the southern border to address the crisis.
“Our focus remains on solutions,” she said at the White House daily press briefing.
She dismissed calls for President Biden to visit the southern border to address the crisis, arguing it would not help the children found unattended on the border.
“If going to the border changed that or helped that, that would be one thing, but our focus is on implementing pieces so we can make their lives better,” she said.
Psaki was asked to react to the shocking video of five migrant girls, ages one to five, found abandoned by smugglers on a rancher’s land.
“That was a heartbreaking situation and we’re thankful for the work of CBP to ensure those minors’ safety,” she said.
Paski also argued the administration would continue advising migrants not to come to the United States.
“This is another example of why we continue to be very clear that individuals should not make the treacherous journey north and put their lives in the hands of smugglers or others for unsafe circumstances,” she said.

In retrospect, do you remember the price of gasoline in 2020?
Do you remember gas prices that were not nearing double of last year’s price? Do you remember getting gasoline without having to join a Jimmy-Carter-esque line? Have you heard that this is not going away when the Colonial mess gets fixed?
This has happened during the first 100 days.
- The shutdown of the Keystone XL pipeline,
- Suspension of gas leases in the Gulf and on government lands,
- Suspension of oil/gas driller access to properties when the access crosses government properties,
- Suspension of maintenance of shipping lanes on rivers,
- Elimination of fossil fuel subsidies,
- A tightening of methane regulations, and
- other limitations on the oil/gas industry.
So do you think that Biden will change his mind on any of this? Do you think he will do anything in time to make a difference?

For that matter, have you seen the price of chicken, carrots, or celery?
Making chicken soup from scratch has suddenly gotten a lot more expensive. And if you say, “Well, then I will just go with canned” — you’re not getting away from inflation (since manufacturers are packing less concentrate into each can). Likewise, making a hamburger or a ham sandwich or buying a car or a dish washer has almost gotten more expensive.
And anyone looking at plywood or studs had better be related to the Rockefellers.
Of course, all of this cannot be dumped on Biden. This comes from years of printing money and bailing out the banks — the “quantitative easing” where the Fed printed money and bought stock willy-nilly throughout the Obama and Trump years.
However, to be proposing 10 trillion in the first 100 days of Biden’s administration has to be a new low in the digging of this pit. I have seen Brazil. I have seen Venezuela. We don’t want to go there.
A comparison of American and Russian army recruitment ads shows that we are so screwed
A tear-jerking lesbian-pride ad versus an ad that appeals to strength and challenge
Townhall comments on two advertisements directed at those who would join the military.
Described by leftist outlets as a “tear-jerking queer story,” the new animated video is part of a series, “The Calling,” which showcases why five soldiers joined the Army.
One video in the campaign features corporal Emma Malonelord, who operates the Patriot missile defense system.
“It begins in California, with a little girl raised by two moms,” Malonelord says. “Although I had a fairly typical childhood, took ballet, played violin, I also marched for equality.
“I like to think I’ve been defending freedom from an early age,” she continues.
After the pride parade, she talks about a tragic accident that left one of her mothers paralyzed, though she did make a recovery to eventually walk down the aisle to marry her other mother.
As college graduation approached, Malonelord says she began “feeling like I’ve been handed so much in life, a sorority girl stereotype…but what had I really achieved on my own?”
“I needed my own adventures, my own challenge, and after meeting with an army recruiter, I found it,” she adds. “A way to prove my inner strength and maybe shatter some stereotypes along the way.”
Needless to say, the video was not confidence inspiring among conservative critics, especially when compared to the type of recruitment videos our adversaries are airing.
Our country is so f*cking screwed. https://t.co/x4fgguISoR—

This is a Russian Army recruitment ad. Compare it with the new American Army commercial. None of this fills me wit… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…—

The worst part is that, in Biden’s America, women cannot even be women.
With Joe Biden’s transgender executive order, it seems that he does not see any difference between women and men (at least for the present). That is, as of his executive order on transgenderism, Title IX has been totally eviscerated. With the stroke of a pen, the guy who imagined himself a champion of women by asking Horizontal Harris to be his Vice President has erased the dreams of many.
