Congress voted for a so-called reform of the US Postal Service in 2021 (I voted no!).  The results:  the annual Postal Debt — $4 billion per year BEFORE the reform,  now -- $6.3 billion per year. washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/294525… 📭🧵2/5
Amidst declining mail volume and vast increases in annual debt, the geniuses at the Postal Service hired 125,000 new employees.

1. Ukraine Aid with No Strings Attached: This bill funnels $7.85 billion taxpayer dollars for the lavish salaries of Ukrainian bureaucrats in addition to $60 billion more to fund their war. AND this is all on top of the previous $113 billion Congress doled out to the corrupt regime. 2. Border "Security": In this massive spending bill of $118 billion, the Swamp allocated almost 6x as much to OTHER countries than to our own border. Congress, as usual, is trying to send billions to secure other countries, while our own border crisis is a complete afterthought.

I’ve been watching the GOP Primary closely for a while now, and I like various aspects of several candidates - Republicans like President @realDonaldTrump, Governor @RonDeSantis, and @VivekGRamaswamy. @realDonaldTrump @RonDeSantis @VivekGRamaswamy I’m interested in the ideas of some independents too, such as @RobertKennedyJr.

Everyone knows the old joke about detecting when a certain person is lying...Just check to see if their lips are moving. In Anthony Fauci, a better test is simply to compare what he says privately away from the cameras with his public pronouncements, as his private words frequently directly contradict the many lies he tells in public.

I’m back with more #Festivus joy! Shall we? Years of massive spending finally caught up to us, and inflation and recession are still here.

I'M BACK for more #airingofgrievances, exposing waste, and generally pissing people off online. I would like to personally thank @elonmusk for buying this platform and allowing us all to say Happy #Festivus again. I mean, we could always say it. No one actually ever stopped us from saying it, but whatever.

To allow the FBI to meet with the media to discuss the content of the news without question chills free speech. ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Read the testimony of a former Facebook executive: “You can’t have a casual chat with an FBI agent when you’re an executive at a company. It’s not safe. You end up with a $3,000-an-hour row of [lawyers] sitting next to you...”

Ben Hu, patient zero, the first person in the world to become infected with COVID-19 worked at the Wuhan Institute for Virology and Tony Fauci’s NIH paid for this dangerous gain of function research.

"Sources within the US government say that three of the earliest people to become infected with SARS-CoV-2 were Ben Hu, Yu Ping, and Yan Zhu. All were members of the Wuhan lab suspected to have leaked the pandemic virus." "Had the information come out earlier, governments may have responded to the pandemic differently. After Public shared the information with Chan, she said, “I feel vindicated, but I’m frustrated."

It’s three days before Christmas, and predictably, Congress is on track to pass yet another $1.7 trillion spending package that no one has had the chance to read. Glomming together a 4,155-page, nearly two trillion-dollar bill and releasing it in the dead of night, days before we are forced to vote on it, is no way to run government.

If you've been forced to lose your job, in the military or anywhere else, for refusing COVID19 vaccination, reply to this tweet and let me know. I've heard from so many Kentuckians already, and want to hear your story, too. Here’s a story I received from a service member affected by this mandate. Alex Buchmann is a Captain in the Marine Corps from Arvada, Colorado. His wife was actually an intern of mine in 2014. He graduated from Hillsdale College in 2017…

Today I am hosting a hearing as Ranking Member of the HSGAC Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Spending Oversight to discuss, as our name implies, the emerging threat posed by gain of function research. We will hear from a panel of three witnesses, all of whom are extraordinarily accomplished experts in the scientific community. We are grateful for that work, and we are grateful to each of you for taking the time to appear here with us this afternoon.

"Using a three-dose vaccine in 992 children between the ages of six months and five years, Pfizer found no statistically significant evidence of vaccine efficacy.”
 
Nevertheless, the CDC went on to recommend 3 vaccines for children.

No one wants to see guns in the hands of criminals, and no one wants to see tragedies like we saw recently in Texas. I’m both a law-abiding gun owner, and a parent, and I want our schools and kids safe. While we have many laws in place to do that already, there should be things we can agree on as legislators to improve upon this.

For example, I support legislation to include juvenile records of violent crimes to be included in background checks.

My oath of office is to the U.S. Constitution, not to any foreign nation. Congress is trying yet again to ram through a spending bill – one that I doubt anyone has actually read – and there’s no oversight included into how the money is being spent. All I requested is an amendment to be included in the final bill that allows for the Inspector General to oversee how funds are spent. Anyone who is opposed to this is irresponsible.
