    Alek Skarlatos stopped a terrorist attack in Europe in 2015Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren sat down with Alek Skarlatos, a veteran hero who helped stop a terrorist attack on a Paris-bound train in 2015, about his run for Congress in Oregon's 4th congressional district. Lahren previewed her interview with the 27-year-old Army National Guard veteran on her show "No Interruption." The hero hopes to flip the seat Republican against 33-year incumbent liberal Democratic Rep. Peter DeFazio. "He decided after taking down a terrorist he is ready to take down the swamp in Washington, D.C.," Lahren told "Fox & Friends" Thursday...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, took heat on Friday in a Democratic primary debate that saw two primary rivals attack her record in Congress, and question whether she is the "nightmare" she claims to be for President Trump. “Her quote is she's Trump's ‘worst nightmare,’ but really in actuality, in many ways she's Trump's best dream,” primary challenger John Mason said in a WCCO radio debate, “And Trump is a racist, but really the only one benefiting from Omar is Omar in lots of things.” The virtual debate took place between Omar, Mason and Antone Melton-Meaux ahead of the Minnesota 5th...

    Video at link. (CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said in her press briefing on Thursday that “a trillion dollars” is “an interesting starting point” to talk about another spending bill, but indicated that she wants more than that. “What doesn't measure up is: ‘Oh, it can only be a trillion dollars,’” Pelosi said. “No, we need a trillion dollars for state and local,” she said. “We need another trillion dollars, another trillion dollars for Unemployment Insurance and direct payments. Something like that, but probably not as much for the testing, tracing, treatment, etcetera. “So, a trillion dollars is:...

    James Woods took a jab at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. on Twitter Tuesday following negative comments she made about President Donald Trump . The politically outspoken actor took to Twitter to share an image of the House Speaker and to lambaste her in the photo's caption. “Morbidly corrupt…” Woods wrote . The line is seemingly a direct response to a comment she made about Trump during an appearance on CNN to discuss the president’s use of the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine. Trump shocked reporters on Monday when he revealed that he has been taking the drug in an effort...

    The House of Representatives on Friday passed a historic piece of legislation , allowing members to vote by proxy and conduct hearings remotely for the next 45 days because of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. Under the new rules, which passed mostly along party lines, congressmen and women can give written instructions to another member in the chamber to vote on their behalf. One representative can serve as a proxy voter for up to 10 other members at any given time. Those who choose to work remotely can still participate in open hearings and cast committee votes. Closed hearings, however, will...

    When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the $3 trillion coronavirus spending bill she and her allies had written – a bill passed by House Democrats Friday night with only a single Republican vote in support – my first reaction was that it would be dead on arrival in the Senate and that the move made no sense. The bill is the most expensive spending bill ever passed in the history of the House of Representatives, but Pelosi took no public comment, no Republican input, and didn’t consult with the Republican-controlled Senate or the White House on the bill. As we...

    House Democrats are pushing forward with a massive fifth round of coronavirus relief legislation that could be their most far-reaching effort yet to address the economic fallout of the pandemic -- and come with another price tag in the trillions. While the House is still technically on recess, Democratic leadership and committee chairs have been drafting their legislative laundry lists for the relief package that could rival the cost of the $2.2 trillion CARES Act that passed in March, or exceed it. "We're looking at a multitrillion-dollar bill," one House Democratic aide told Fox News. While the text of the...

    Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) went on Fox News to defend China on Saturday. Porter attempted to obscure the communist regime's responsibility for unleashing the deadly Wuhan coronavirus on the world. To absolve China, Porter was throwing everything at the wall to see what stuck. Nothing did. The California representative characterized the Wuhan coronavirus as a "global phenomenon" and said evidence proves that outbreaks in the U.S. had their origins in Europe, not China. "There's a lot of evidence that the cases that began to pop up and expand in the United States actually came from Europe," Porter said, as she...

    Does a pandemic that has killed thousands of people around the globe, shuttered the American economy and resulted in a nearly 20 percent unemployment rate qualify as an "emergency?" Not in the mind of Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. As he explained to the press on Monday, the House of Representatives would not be meeting again before May 4, "absent an emergency."

  • Dems Who Impeached Trump as Coronavirus Spread Now Want to Investigate His Coronavirus Response

    PJ Media ^ | April 3, 2020 | Tyler O'Neil
    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), perhaps the central figure in Democrats' impeachment of President Donald Trump, began circulating draft legislation to investigate Trump's response to the coronavirus. In his press release on Friday, Schiff claimed the investigation is "not an exercise in casting blame or scoring political points," but Republicans are naturally skeptical. On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced a new coronavirus oversight committee, headed by House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), who last month said the pandemic gives Democrats "a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision." After all, Democrats stalled the $2 trillion stimulus bill...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday railed against Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) after she said President Trump's response to the coronavirus outbreak was having deadly consequences. "She's blaming the president of the United States for people dying because of the way he's led the country," Graham, a vocal Trump ally, said on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures." "That's the most shameful, disgusting statement by any politician in modern history."Speaking earlier on CNN, Pelosi said Trump's lack of aggressive action was having severe effects throughout the United States. She said Trump's initial downplaying of the disease and his delay in coordinating...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday that she believes President Donald Trump has done very little to help with preventing the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. In fact, she believes he's "fiddling" with making important decisions. "President Trump is considering relaxing federal guidelines for the coronavirus for some of the lesser infected parts of the country. Do you think he should?" Tapper asked. Pelosi referenced the number of people – roughly 2,000 – who have died as a result of the virus. "This is such a very, very sad time for us so we should be...

    The CARES Act, the $2 trillion coronavirus emergency relief bill that serves as Phase Three of Congress's coronavirus relief efforts, has passed the House of Representatives. It is the largest stimulus package in U.S. history and aims to provide funding for hospitals, and targeted relief for small businesses. The successful vote comes after hours of cantankerous debate, in which one unhinged Democratic representative was ruled " out of order " on the House floor. Once the measure finally passed, the entire House erupted - in a positive way. Lisa Desjardins âś”@LisaDNews WOW and just like that, the motion is adopted....

    Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume expressed his concerns over Thursday's "nerve-wracking" press briefing from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Pelosi spoke to reporters on Thursday as the House of Representatives is set to vote on the $2 trillion emergency stimulus bill that was passed unanimously in the Senate late Wednesday night, but her presentation was not assuring, according to Hume. "Watching Nancy Pelosi brief on the coronavirus bill is nerve-wracking," Hume tweeted. "She keeps getting into sentences you wonder if she can ever get out of. She finishes most of them somehow, but they’re not always coherent."

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday claimed that Democrats “won the day” in obtaining what they wanted from the Senate’s $2.2 trillion coronavirus response stimulus package, while hinting at other items she would like to see included in a forthcoming bill. Pelosi described the negotiations as a “jiu-jitsu” moment in securing legislation that she described as worker-first instead of corporate-focused, but still said Democrats walked away with “not getting everything we want” out of the bill. “As I’ve said, there are so many things we didn’t get in any of these bills yet in a way that we need to,”...

    Believe me, these ten minutes are worth your time. Here's Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) absolutely ripping House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Democrats for sneaking in a laundry list of progressive, environmental provisions into the CARES Act, the third phase of Congress's coronavirus response intended to provide aid, relief, and economic security for individuals and businesses during this unpredictable era. Barrasso kicked off his remarks by condemning "the demands by the Democrats to muck up a bill that is designed as a rescue operation for the American people." He next identified the culprit. "Nancy Pelosi flew back from California...
