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🧵 2/ @univofdayton is one of the most radical grant recipients for the program, receiving $352k to fight "domestic violent extremism and hate movements."

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

🧵🧵: 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.

👀🧵: 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.
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.

🚨🧵: 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.

The Senate Democrat's guide to passing a $1.7 TRILLION spending package (how-to guide 🧵)
Step 1⃣: Set government funding to expire on Dec. 23, so members have to choose between passing a bad bill or staying in D.C. over Christmas.

The Biden administration’s radical Department of Education Title IX guidance tied up in federal court, but that's not stopping congressional Democrats from pushing a bill that would codify the administration’s gender ideology agenda. 🧵⤵️
The so-called Students’ Access to Freedom and Educational Rights (SAFER) Act locks the administration’s harmful gender ideology rules into law, while also lowering the standard of proof for sexual assault cases and rewriting decades-old civil rights laws.

🧵: The Congress’ Christmas Spending Spree 🎁
We all have Christmas traditions: Food we eat, songs we sing, and gifts we give.
However, Congress' special tradition is to pass massive spending bills, think 1,000's of pages, in just a matter of days (called an Omnibus).
This year, Congressional leadership is giving members just FIVE DAYS to pass more than $1 trillion to fund the federal government in 2023.
Who can possibly read through such a bill and make an informed decision in just 5 days? Not even Santa and his elves! 🎅

Social media companies were created to give every user a voice in the public square, but because of special privileges granted to them under Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act many are being censored while Big Tech companies remain immune from the consequences.
This has encouraged companies like Facebook, Google, and Twitter to use their concentrated power to effectively police the legitimate speech of ordinary Americans to amplify their allies & censor their adversaries, a major violation of the First Amendment. heritage.org/testimony/hold…

Spending bills should reflect the priorities of the American people as demonstrated by their vote in the recent election.
The current Congress should pass a short-term CR and leave the newly elected Congress to craft spending.

Hardly a positive report, today’s CPI numbers show inflation is six times what it was when Biden took office. The Biden administration may think this is a political win, but it is a loss for American families. herit.ag/3d94hQT
Biden's disastrous economic policies have driven up costs and impoverished American families. The cold reality is that whether the rate is 8.5% or 9.1%, Americans are feeling historic pain at the pump, groceries, or other staples—and we’re still moving in the wrong direction.

🧵🧵: On Sunday, 50 Democrat senators voted to advance the so-called #InflationReductionAct--one of the worst bills we've seen in a long time.
Along the way, they all took radical positions against a number of commonsense amendments.
Let's start with increasing domestic oil and gas production. @SenJohnBarrasso proposed an amendment requiring the Biden administration to hold supplemental onshore oil and gas lease sales by the end of 2022.
