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.
Progressive lawmakers had repeatedly said during the week that they had more than enough votes to scuttle the infrastructure bill. Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) called on moderate Democrat Senators Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) and Joe Manchin (W. VA), to provide a topline number for the social spending bill. A July memo signed by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Manchin revealed he had requested a topline figure of $1.5 trillion.
Manchin on Wednesday in statement repeated his opposition to spending $3.5 trillion “when we have already spent $5.4 trillion since last March.”
“What I have made clear to the President and Democratic leaders is that spending trillions more on new and expanded government programs, when we can’t even pay for the essential social programs, like Social Security and Medicare, is the definition of fiscal insanity. Suggesting that spending trillions more will not have an impact on inflation ignores the everyday reality that America’s families continue to pay an unavoidable inflation tax.”
According to The New York Post , Jayapal said […]
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
