House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is standing firm behind the group of Republican senators, led by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who officially announced that they will object to the January 6th certification of the presidential election results on Wednesday unless there is an emergency 10-day audit of the results by an electoral commission.

The Republican Senators joining Ted Cruz are are Ron Johnson (WI), James Lankford (OK), Steve Daines (MT), John Kennedy (LA), Marsha Blackburn (TN) and Mike Braun (IN), as well as Sens.-elect Cynthia Lummis (WY) Roger Marshall (KS) Bill Hagerty (TN) and Tommy Tuberville (AL).

While appearing on Saturday’s airing of Justice With Judge Jeanine, Rep. McCarthy said that an emergency audit is “one way to unite the nation,” especially in a time when millions of Americans suspect fraudulent acts may have tainted the presidential election results.

“If you want to unite this nation, you’ve got to start with having integrity in your election,” Rep. McCarthy told Judge Jeanine.

“You’ve got questions out there. The American people have questions. What would be wrong with an audit? What would be wrong with bringing the information back so people have all of the information to make those decisions?” he questioned.

“I think it would be one way to unite the nation in trust and make sure if they have problems in these elections, that they are corrected and that we do not go further and continue the mistakes that have been made,” McCarthy said.

“There are a number of states that have come into question here. That’s why we need the integrity in the election. This is the place that we have debate, and it’s healthy,” McCarthy said before pointing out that Democrats have often contested electoral votes with Republican presidents.

“This is not something that’s unusual. This is something that has happened by the Democrats on the last three Republican presidents…So, it’s something that has gone on quite often with the Democrats, so I don’t know why they’d have a problem knowing what has gone on with this election that we have a debate and an openness on this and look at the integrity of what has gone on.

Cruz responds to pictures of him on Mexico flight, with Texas struggling from deadly winter storm

Published

Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz confirmed Thursday that he flew earlier this week to Mexico with family members, following the emergence of pictures appearing to show him in an airplane cabin and at a check-in counter, as fellow residents to recover from a deadly winter storm.

Cruz said in a statement that he accompanied his daughters on a flight Wednesday night to Mexico because they had the week off with school canceled.

“Wanting to be a good dad,” said Cruz, who also stated he is returning to Texas on Thursday afternoon.

The storms has been connected to at least seven deaths in Texas and knocked out power to as many as 2.5 million residents. The number of residents without electricity as of Thursday morning was down to less than 1 million, officials said.

“My staff and I are in constant communication with state and local leaders to get to the bottom of what happened in Texas,” Cruz also said. “We want our power back, our water on, and our homes warm.”

South Carolina House passes bill that would prohibit most abortions if a fetal heartbeat is detected

Published

on

The South Carolina House of Representatives on Wednesday voted 79-35 to pass legislation that would prohibit most abortions. 

The bill must pass through a procedural vote in the House on Thursday prior to heading to GOP Gov. Henry McMaster who has indicated that he will sign it, according to the Associated Press. Two Republicans voted against the legislation while two Democrats voted for it. The state Senate passed the measure last month. 

The bill requires doctors to carry out an ultrasound to check for a fetal heartbeat and if a heartbeat is identified an abortion can only be performed in certain circumstances.

The legislation would not penalize a woman for obtaining an unlawful abortion, though the individual responsible for performing the abortion could face consequences.

The outlet reported that other states have approved similar or even more stringent abortion prohibitions which could be implemented if the Supreme Court throws out the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. All of the other states’ abortion bans are currently entangled by court challenges and if the South Carolina bill is approved it will likely face litigation that prevents it from going into effect, according to the AP.

Leo Brent Bozell IV, the son of conservative leader L. Brent Bozell III, is facing federal charges in connection with the Jan. 6 breech of the U.S. Capitol.

At least one photo shows Bozell wearing a sweatshirt emblazoned with a logo for a Christian school at which he once coached girls basketball, according to the Huffington Post.

The FBI obtained a photo of him posing with a student of a school, in Hershey, Pa.

His father founder, who founded the Media Research Center and other conservative groups, has condemned the riots, saying, “You can never countenance police being attacked. You cannot countenance our national capitol being breached like this. … I think it is absolutely wrong,” according to NewsBusters.
