1/🚨EXPOSED: @theMRC has uncovered a DHS anti-terrorism program that's been weaponized against conservatives.

80 grants & 39.6 million taxpayer dollars later, here's a look at how @JoeBiden & @SecMayorkas are outsourcing their efforts to conflate conservatives with terrorists🧵 Image
2/ @univofdayton is one of the most radical grant recipients for the program, receiving $352k to fight "domestic violent extremism and hate movements."

Biden's @DHSgov awarded the grant despite their application including this fallacious chart.

Here's how their seminars went... Image
3/ One of their first seminars featured @DHSgov Agent Joseph Masztalics, who emphasized their whole of society approach means "at DHS, we only support, locals lead."

This suggests those DHS chooses to fund are compatible with their vision of leading on "anti-terrorism." Image
4/ One of those local leaders is University of Cincinnati researcher @mloadenthal, who presented the pyramid of far-right radicalization in a seminar w/Agent Masztalics.

Here he is at one of the seminars telling the audience a lot of what he's doing and advising is illegal.
5/ He also boasts about how so-called "antifascists" can pressure service providers to "kick people off" if enough leftists decide individuals or organizations like The Heritage Foundation, @BreitbartNews, @prageru, or @TPUSA are radical or white supremacist.
6/ @mloadenthal, again, speaking on behalf of a @DHSgov funded program, celebrated de-platforming those on the right & shutting down their ability to organize or speak publicly, saying, "This is the belief."

But Loadenthal isn't the only one espousing absurdities on your dime...
7/ @univofdayton Professor Paul Becker said anti-lockdown & anti-vaccine mandate protestors were specific examples of people likely to be infiltrated by "those holding extremist beliefs."

But what's a leftist without baseless genocidal comparisons? They didn't disappoint... ImageImage
8/ In the seminar attended by @DHSgov Agent Masztalics, @RutgersU faculty member Alexander Hinton compares the @realDonaldTrump administration to the Khmer Rouge regime that killed 1.7 million people.
@DHSgov @RutgersU @realDonaldTrump 9/ Another speaker in that same seminar, @NWiddersheim, considers @RonDeSantis an extremist and suggested that he might have envisioned carrying out another Holocaust with his then proposed civilian state force to assist the FL National Guard in responding to emergencies.
@DHSgov @RutgersU @realDonaldTrump @NWiddersheim @RonDeSantis Lacking all self-reflection, there were interestingly no mentions of 2020's "summer of love" where leftists caused at least $2 billion in damage across the U.S., the consequences of which the America's poor and middle class are still facing. heritage.org/crime-and-just…
@DHSgov @RutgersU @realDonaldTrump @NWiddersheim @RonDeSantis There was also no mention about the extremism of a President abusing his power to try and force a nation to take an experimental drug without consent, or the fact that a substantial portion of the country supported punishing those who wouldn't comply. rasmussenreports.com/public_content…
@DHSgov @RutgersU @realDonaldTrump @NWiddersheim @RonDeSantis Whether it's the FBI, DOJ, IRS, or DHS, it seems the Biden admin will weaponize any part of the federal government against its political opponents, including by conflating them with terrorists.

🧵Biden and the Democrats have lied A LOT about the debt-limit fight.

Here are 7 false claims DEBUNKED by our very own @DavidADitch dailysignal.com/2023/05/23/reb…
1. GOP won’t negotiate & will make America hit the debt ceiling.

The House passed the Limit, Save, Grow Act, which would increase the debt limit while cutting spending.

Rather than start bipartisan negotiations, Democrats have not taken any meaningful action whatsoever.
2. Biden can raise the debt ceiling unilaterally because of a provision of the 14th Amendment.

The provision referred to by the Biden admin was meant to ensure that if the federal government issues debt, a future POTUS or act of Congress cannot render it void.

Only Congress...

🧵🧵: Joe Biden's making a speech today about the border crisis that he, @SecMayorkas, and the open-borders advocates in his administration have caused.

Expecting lots of blame-shifting and dishonesty. Buckle up...
Well that didn't take long. Biden's already blaming Republicans for not passing his "comprehensive immigration reform," which is just code for amnesty.
Biden claims we don't have enough asylum officers. Well that's a circular argument, because millions more people are coming to the border and clogging up the system thanks to Biden's own policies!

👀🧵: NEW numbers obtained by Mark Morgan show some shocking facts about the disaster at the border in December.

To start, Border Patrol saw 226,050 apprehensions. That brings the FY23 total to 640,000+ in just three months--200,000 more than FY2020 total. #BidenBorderCrisis
There's more. When you factor in the "inadmissibles," i.e., those encountered at ports of entry (many of whom are also released into the interior), you're looking at around 300,000 encounters in December.
That means we're looking at more than 857,000 total encounters so far this fiscal year. Again, that's in just *90 DAYS*.

At this pace, that's around 3.5 million encounters this fiscal year.

The #Omnibus will further dismantle border security and dump gasoline on the dumpster fire that is #BidenBorderCrisis

Here’s how 🧵🔽:
It throws money (to the tune of $234M) at state and local detention facilities to collect alien info and provide it to the feds, even though the administration already prohibits ICE from enforcing laws or cooperating with state and local law enforcement regarding criminal aliens.
It gives $20M to FEMA-Federal Assistance for the Alternatives to Detention Case Management pilot program.

This allows the left to gut actual detention while using the façade of detention without tracking the aliens (and also giving even more money to their NGO friends).

🚨🧵: Republicans are about to surrender the leverage to hold Biden accountable without even putting up a fight.

This week, at least 10 Senate Republicans are expected to join democrats to pass a massive $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill in Congress.
Doing so would undermine one of the GOP’s core campaign promises.

When rolling out the “Commitment to America” in September, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., made government accountability a pillar of the plan.
Republicans promised “rigorous oversight to rein in government abuse of power and corruption, provide real transparency, and require the White House to answer for its incompetence at home and abroad.”
