Meadows contempt vote by House Dems draws sharp rebuke from GOP’s Jim Jordan
NOI. rappresentante. Jim Jordan tore into House Democrats on Tuesday night after they and some Republicans voted to hold former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows in contempt of Congress.
Il 222-208 vote came a day after the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol voted 9-0 to recommend Meadows for prosecution after he refused to testify before the panel.
In a reaction posted on Twitter, Giordania, an Ohio Republican, asserted the vote was strictly a case of Washington politics.
“Americans can barely afford groceries. Gas prices are up. Il crimine è alle stelle,” Jordan wrote. “And what do Democrats do? Punish their political foe in the dead of night, with no one watching. Pathetic.”
In both the committee and full House votes, the Democrats were joined by GOP Reps. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Liz Cheney of Wyoming, both of them longtime critics of former President Donald Trump.
Meadows responded late Monday to the House committee’s vote, telling Fox News host Sean Hannity that the recommendation from the committee was “disappointing but not surprising.”
L'ex Carolina del Nord congressman – who also served as chairman of the influential House Freedom Caucus — was previously cooperating with the Jan. 6 committee’s investigation. He later stopped working with the investigators and is now suing them. CLICCA QUI PER MAGGIORI INFORMAZIONI SULLA NOSTRA STORIA PRINCIPALE.

Biden, in a party mood, tells Democrats: ‘We’re going to win in 2022’
Presidente Biden expressed optimism Tuesday night that his fellow Democrats will prevail in next year’s midterm elections.
“We have to keep making the case,” Biden told a crowd of about 400 at the Democratic National Committee’s holiday party in Washington. “Let me say this again: From the president, we’re going to win in 2022.”
“I want to tell my Republican friends: Get ready, amico. You’re in for a problem,” Biden ha detto, claiming the GOP was “against everything” and challenging the crowd to name something Republicans were “for.”
Many political analysts, to the contrary, expect Republicans to roll up victories in House elections next November.
Durante il suo discorso, Biden touted his recently passed infrastructure spending package as the most significant piece of infrastructure spending since the Eisenhower administration. The president also celebrated that more than 200 million Americans have been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
The president stands at 43% approval and 51% disapproval in an NPR/Marist national survey released last Thursday. Un giorno prima, a national poll from Monmouth University indicated a 40% grado di approvazione e a 50% valutazione di disapprovazione. Both surveys were conducted in recent days.

Black juror in Jussie Smollett trial found one behavior suspicious: ‘It didn’t add up’
The only Black juror on the panel that convicted Jussie Smollett of lying to Chicago police said he couldn’t get past what l'attore did not do after he claimed attackers looped a noose around his neck: Rip it off and keep it off.
If others saw the noose as Smollett’s clumsy effort to portray his attackers as racist, Andre Hope saw much more.
“As an African-American person, I’m not putting that noose back on at all,” Hope told Chicago’s WLS-TV. At trial, Smollett testified that after the alleged attack in downtown Chicago in January 2019, he returned home and put the rope back around his neck so police who came to his apartment soon after could see it.
Hope was not the only Black person who struggled with Smollett’s use of such a potent symbol of racism in the U.S. to convince authorities he was the victim of a hate crime.
In an interview with NewsNation Now after Smollett was found guilty last Thursday, Eddie Johnson – who was Chicago’s police superintendent in January 2019 when Smollett said he was attacked — said virtually the same thing.
“I was concerned because I don’t think there’s many Black people in America with a noose around their neck and wouldn’t immediately take it off,” Johnson ha detto. CLICCA QUI PER MAGGIORI INFORMAZIONI.

ALCUNE PAROLE DI PARTENZA
“America can’t escape the framework of skin color,” il “Fox News Primetime” ospite ha detto, “because instead of spreading cheer and joy this holiday season, Black Lives Matter is asking its followers to participate in segregation. They called their mission ‘Black Xmas,’ And its goal is pretty simple, fight ‘White supremacist capitalism.’ Now you’re probably wondering, what is White supremacist capitalism? And that also is simple: It’s any business owned by a White person.”
