House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) cancelled a vote on a Senate-passed $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill Thursday night, after failing to gain the support needed for passage after far-left progressives in her party promised to block the measure until there was agreement to pass the $3.5 trillion spending bill, which they are attempting to pass without Republican support.

President Joe Biden’s two top legislative priorities as part of his “Build Back Better” campaign are now in doubt. The decision came after hours of intense negotiations, including calls with Biden, plus a marathon of meetings and calls with members of the House Democratic caucus.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
