There is NO EXCUSE for the inhumane disaster at our southern border. The ONLY “winners” are dangerous cartels, gangs, and terror suspects - and the Biden administration is making things WORSE.

@SecMayorkas has some answering to do next week in front of @JudiciaryGOP.

THREAD 🧵 AT LEAST 42 migrants on the TERROR WATCHLIST have tried to enter our country illegally and been arrested by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) since President Biden took office.

🚨🚨🚨 URGENT BORDER UPDATE: Very soon, the Biden administration is slated to eliminate the last border security safeguard America has against his ruinous immigration agenda – Title 42.

THREAD 🧵🧵🧵 Title 42 allows the US to turn away migrants at the border on public health grounds.

The review period for keeping this policy ends tomorrow. If it expires, the scale of this border crisis stands to get EXPONENTIALLY WORSE.

The text for the $1.5 TRILLION 2,741-page spending monstrosity that the HOUSE is voting on TODAY was released at 2:30am THIS MORNING

After taking a look at the bill, it’s pretty easy to understand why this garbage was released at the break of dawn - it funds tyranny. This bill doesn’t do a THING to open up American oil and gas production.

It does give $14.1 billion to Biden’s Department of Interior, which has not conducted A SINGLE onshore federal oil and gas lease sale this year.

This week, Republicans are again faced with the decision to fund unconstitutional COVID-19 vaccine mandates for a vaccine that DOES NOT even prevent transmission or infection of COVID.

🧵🧵🧵 THREAD (1/ ) As we enter the third year of this nightmare, we must look at what we’ve learned by the decisions of our 'experts' so that our nation ensures that COVID tyranny NEVER happens again. We must hold them accountable.

Let's review...

At tonight's State of the Union, Americans will hear a lot about President Biden’s “accomplishments.”

What @POTUS WILL NOT tell you is how his radical energy policies empower our enemies at the expense of American prosperity and global security.

We will.

🧵🧵🧵THREAD 1/x From day 1, President Biden has waged war on American energy by:

-Halting oil and gas leases on federal lands and in ANWR

-Killing Keystone XL

-Rejoining the Paris Climate Accord

-Imposing onerous regulations across the board

-Empowering the dangerous ESG movement

Christians are on trial in Finland for…

*checks notes*

“Being Christian”

You will not believe what is going on in Finland as two Christians @PaiviRasanen and Bishop Pohjola stand trial for publicly confessing Christ.

We'll break it down for you.

🧵Thread🧵 1/ Since the Summer of 2019, @PaiviRasanen and Bishop Pohjola have faced targeted harassment for living out their Christian faith; now, they’re facing criminal charges and years of prison time.

Why?

As Rep Roy said, Democrats’ so-called “China bill” is not about confronting China.

It’s about increasing deficit spending on crony programs, advancing a radical climate agenda, and enacting woke garbage that has nothing to do with beating ChiComs

Let’s take a look

THREAD (1/x) This week, the national debt hit $30 TRILLION for the first time in history.

That’s almost $250k worth of debt PER U.S. TAXPAYER.

And this bill has a price tag of $325 BILLION with no real offsets, which will make our debt crisis even worse.

During National School Choice Week we celebrate students, parents, and teachers in #TX21, across Texas, and across America, and the diverse schooling options that provide the freedom, opportunity, and high-quality education they ALL deserve. As Big Education tries to push parents out of schools, indoctrinate our children, and do corrupt unions’ bidding, we need to keep up the fight for school choice and our students’ future. Parents in Texas, Virginia, and other states are waking up — we can never go back.

"This [vaccine] mandate, however, sends a strong signal to these young men and women that they must choose between their faith and their desire to protect America because the military will not reasonably accommodate their sincerely held religious beliefs"

THREAD on the victims of the #BidenBorderCrisis:

Over the weekend, two innocent lives were lost in Mission, TX after a smuggler T-boned the victims’ car.

1/ Yes, we are dealing with the highest levels of southern border encounters on record, but even that data point can’t tell the full story of the destruction going on at our border & our communities.

Democrats keep claiming their massive spending bill is “popular” but we aren’t sure they’ve actually READ this 2,000+ page monstrosity.

Let’s take a look under the hood to determine how “popular” this bill actually should be.

🧵 THREAD 🧵 1/x First, Dems are relying on budget gimmicks when they say this thing costs $1.75 trillion.

@BudgetModel found the true cost will be a whopping $4 TRILLION after Dems make their spending programs permanent

Even the NYT called them out on their BS 👇

The American people have been subjected to absolutely INSANE levels of lying, misinformation, and dishonesty from the Biden administration over the past 10 months

Since the corporate media has no real interest in pointing it out, here’s a list:

THREAD 🧵🧵🧵 Let's start with the lie that Biden wouldn't call for a federal vaxx mandate

Then President Elect Biden said in December of 2020 "No - I don't think it should be mandatory. I wouldn't demand it to be mandatory"

We all saw how that turned out

NEW: A 24-year-old Honduran charged with murder crossed the US border illegally while posing as a minor amid the #BidenBorderCrisis

INEXCUSABLE. This is the exact sort of thing Rep. Roy has been fighting against since Biden took office

The House of Representatives just voted to pass the #NDAA, 316 - 113

134 Republicans voted for it.

While many of them are going to focus on the uncontroversial parts of this “bipartisan” defense bill, there’s plenty in there that isn’t getting enough attention:

THREAD: (1/9) (2/9)

First, this bill forces young women to register for the draft, which Rep. Roy has been against from the start.

19 Republican senators just voted for a $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” package that’s filled with leftist garbage.

There’s been a lot of smoke and mirror efforts to hide what’s in this bill, so let’s take a look at what they actually voted for.

🧵THREAD 🧵(1/14) First, the bill isn’t focused on hard infrastructure and instead provides billions to Green New Deal programs.

For example, it funnels $16.2 billion to renewable and energy efficiency projects and $7.5 billion to electric vehicle chargers. (2/14)
