House Republicans To Launch Climate Caucus After Biden Claims Global Warming Is Greatest Threat To American Security

House Republicans are preparing to launch a caucus designed to educate members on the effects of climate change.

The effort, led by Representative John Curtis (R-UT), will, according to The Hill, “give members information and new strategies for how to talk about” climate change and “possibly even change some minds” on the topic.

The climate caucus reportedly already has 45 members.

Curtis says he is seeking bipartisan solutions on matters such as limiting greenhouse gasses in other countries and supporting nuclear power.

Still, he believes other less popular options for the GOP “should be on the table.”

“I didn’t really know what solutions were good solutions. I didn’t know which ones I could support,” said Curtis.

“It felt like, and I think a lot of Republicans feel this way, I had to endorse the Green New Deal if I was going to … be part of the solution, and a lot of Republicans find that troubling.”

Climate Caucus After Biden Declares Global Warming America’s Greatest Threat

President Biden, during a speech to Air Force personnel in the United Kingdom earlier this month, warned that global warming is the “greatest threat” facing America and that it is “not a joke.”

Biden claimed he was told this by Pentagon officials when he was serving alongside Barack Obama in 2009.

“When I went over to the tank in the Pentagon when I was first was elected vice president with President Obama, the military sat us down and let us know what the greatest threats facing America were, the greatest physical threats,” he told those in attendance.

“This is not a joke,” he insisted. “You know what the Joint Chiefs told us the greatest physical threat facing America was? Global warming.”

Curtis has been seeking to get his GOP colleagues to take the matter of climate change more seriously for some time now.

“This is a Republican bread and butter issue,” he said at a climate change town hall last September. “We care about the Earth, now let’s show it.”

“We have to stop being so afraid of this conversation,” he insisted.

“We’ve got good answers. We’ve got answers that don’t kill the economy. We’ve got answers that can be bipartisan,” Curtis said. “We’re in this. We want to be part of this.”

Curtis Sought to Censure Trump

On Tuesday, The Political Insider reported that wildfires in California, something Democrats have consistently blamed on climate change despite their existence throughout history, are being fought through billions of dollars in funding meant to clear out forest floors.

Perhaps that topic will be addressed in the new Republican climate caucus.

Clearing forest floors to combat wildfires in California is something that was frequently suggested by former President Donald Trump.

He was ridiculed for such suggestions.

Curtis, shortly after the Capitol protest on January 6th, introduced a resolution to censure and condemn Trump.

“The events at the Capitol last week were abhorrent; all those involved must be held accountable, including President Trump,” he said at the time.

“Censuring the President and making it clear that Congress does not support any level of his involvement in the riots nor any attempts to undermine an election is a critical step in holding him accountable as more facts continue to unfold,” added Curtis.

The Utah Republican voted against impeachment, however, citing a lack of time for a full inquiry.

Liz Cheney Upset That Her Colleagues Want To End What Trump Called ‘Endless Wars’

On Thursday, the House voted to repeal the 20-year-old Authorization for Use of Military Force used by President George W. Bush to invade Iraq.

And Liz Cheney was not happy.

‘Warmongering Fool’ Cheney: ‘AUMF Repeal Without Comprehensive Replacement Is Dangerous’

The neoconservative congresswoman, whom Trump has called a “warmongering fool” on multiple occasions, said on the House floor, “AUMF repeal without comprehensive replacement is dangerous, misguided, and ignores the security challenges facing our nation.”

“This legislation removes a critical tool used by previous administrations – Republican and Democrat – to defeat terrorist threats originating in Iraq,” said the Wyoming representative who was ousted from House leadership in May for constantly criticizing former president Donald Trump and supporting his second impeachment.

Cheney once again finds herself on the opposite side of Trump, who constantly spoke out about the dire need for America to end its “forever wars” and “endless wars” abroad.

House Voted 268 To 161 To Repeal AUMF

Cheney said Thursday that repealing AUMF “would send a message of weakness to our adversaries and allies alike” and that it “is not part of a comprehensive replacement providing adequate authority to combat terrorists or those who want to do our nation harm is a vote to leave America exposed to our enemies.”

But the House still voted 268 to 161 to remove the authorization.

Every Democrat voted in favor, despite twice voting to block Trump’s efforts to withdraw troops from Afghanistan just last year – working in tandem with Cheney.

Republican Rep. Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District disagreed with Cheney, saying in a statement that the vote to repeal AUMF was a “matter of basic constitutional hygiene and a small but significant step forward in reasserting Congress’s war powers authorities.”

“The 2002 AUMF is no longer relevant and its repeal would not impact ongoing operations in the Middle East,” Gallagher added.

Republican Rep. Thomas Massie said, “Saddam Hussein’s regime was defeated in 2003. 2003, that’s eighteen years ago.”

“Obama declared the Iraq War ended in 2011, but the AUMF was never repealed,” Massie added. “It gives a blank check to any current or subsequent administration to keep American soldiers in Iraq indefinitely, and puts us at risk of getting into another war.”

Trump Will Run For President In 2024, Jim Jordan Predicts

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) went on Fox News on Tuesday night to predict that Donald Trump will run for president again in 2024.

Jordan Predicts Trump Will Run In 2024

“I think he is,” Jordan told host Sean Hannity when asked if Trump will run. “Every time I speak to him, it — he says that he wants to run. He plans to run, I think, but he hasn’t fully committed that yet. But I certainly hope he does because no president has done more of what he said he would do than President Trump. Best president I think we’ve ever had:”

“Keeping his word, doing what he said, doing what he was elected to do,” he continued. “That’s the kind of individual we need in the White House, and that’s the kind of individual that our adversaries respected because they knew he was putting America’s interests first and standing strong for the principles that matter.”

Mark Meadows Agrees 

Jordan’s former House Freedom Caucus colleague Mark Meadows feels the same way.

“Listen, Sean, when he came down that escalator, the left has been going after him attack after attack after attack, from Russia hoax to impeachment,” Meadows said. “Now, we’re even still seeing it in New York City.”

“Here’s what I will say is, the American people want him to run,” he added. “I believe he’ll run. And at the end of the day, it’s a time for choosing, and the American people will choose Donald Trump.”

Trump ‘Beyond Seriously’ Considering Running 

Last month, Trump said that he is “beyond seriously” considering running for president again in 2024.

“I say this: I am looking at it very seriously, beyond seriously,” Trump told Fox News when asked about a potential 2024 run. “From a legal standpoint I don’t want to talk about it yet.”

Related: We Don’t Need A New Party, This Is Our Party Now

Sources close to Trump told Politico that he has been saying that he will run again assuming he is healthy enough to do so.

“He has been saying he’s going to. He’s seriously considering it — he’s probably going to do it — so we’ll see what happens,” said Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), who served as White House physician, told Insider’s Kimberly Leonard.

FNC’s Janice Dean Says It’s ‘Disgusting’ Cuomo Scored Book Deal – Thought It Was A ‘Joke’

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean went on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday morning to slam New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) after it was reported that he will receive $5.1 million from his book about the coronavirus pandemic.

Dean Thought Cuomo Book Deal Was A ‘Joke’

Dean said that she initially thought the book deal was a “joke,” as she feels Cuomo is the last person who should be writing a book about handling the COVID-19 pandemic when he allegedly covered up the number of deaths in New York nursing homes.

She added that it is “disgusting” that Cuomo is profiting off the deaths of New Yorkers, including her in-laws.

“When I first read that the governor was writing a book in the middle of the pandemic, I thought it was a joke,” Dean said. “I thought it was a headline in the Babylon Bee or The Onion.”

“How could a governor write a book about leadership when thousands of elderly are dying?” she added. “It was incredible. And I was mad at the time but seeing he got over $5 million for this, profiting off the deaths of New Yorkers, including my in-laws, it’s disgusting.”

Related: Cuomo Now Being Investigated Over $4 Million Book Deal Celebrating His Pandemic Leadership, Janice Dean Calls It ‘Disgusting’

Dean Doubles Down

“I think the book publishing company can sue him for breach of contract because it’s filled with lies,” she added.

“And if you look at the timeline — the governor covering up the nursing home issue, the tragedy over 5,000 deaths that him and his administration tried to cover up for months — the timeline corresponds with him trying to sell that $5 million book,” Dean said. “So, I wonder if we can profit off the Son of Sam law. All of that money should go to the families of our dead loved ones.”

Last month, Dean demanded that lawmakers take action and impeach Cuomo.

“Our lawmakers in Albany need to do something,” she said at the time. “This whitewash of an impeachment is ridiculous. Go in there today and get it done. There are at least four investigations into this governor. How much more do you need to get him out?”

Jim Jordan Slams Liz Cheney – Can’t Have A Conference Chair ‘Reciting Democrat Talking Points’

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) spoke out over the weekend to explain why it was necessary to replace Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as the Republican Conference chair with Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY).

Jordan Blasts Liz Cheney

He said that the Republican conference chair should not be “reciting Democrat talking points” nor disagreeing with 90% of the party.

“I think we are united now,” Jordan said. “You know … with Congresswoman Cheney, you can’t have a conference chair — a spokesperson for the party — who’s reciting Democrat talking points.”

“You can’t have a conference chair who wants to consistently go after the individual who 74 million Americans voted for,” he added. “You just can’t have a conference chair who disagrees with 90% of our party, so the replacement of Liz with Elise, I think, is a good move.”

“I think Elise has a proven track record. She’s had President Trump’s support, the … leader of our House Republicans, Mr. McCarthy, Mr. Scalise, has good support within our conference, she’s A-plus with the NRA, endorsed by Susan B. Anthony List, and most importantly … she’s a darn good communicator,” he added. “And we saw that during impeachment a year and a half ago.”

“So, I think she’s going to do a nice job, and we’re gonna be united focused on the crazy things Democrats want to do to the country and the unbelievable things that have already happened in just a little over 100 days of the Biden administration,” Jordan concluded.

Cheney was asked about Jordan in an interview on ABC on Sunday.

“Jim Jordan talking about a possible Trump 2024 run said, ‘There’s no way he is losing. He’s going to win the Republican primary, and he’s going to be president if he decides to run,'” host Jon Karl said. “Now, based on today’s facts, he’s right, isn’t he, about the primary part, at least? I mean, there’s nobody, there’s not even a close second out there, is there?”

“I think Jim’s wrong. It’s not the first time Jim has been wrong, and I’m sure it won’t be the last time, but he is wrong,” Cheney replied. “I think there are millions and millions of Republicans who won’t let that happen again.”

Liz Cheney Floats Conspiracy Theory That Trump Will ‘Unravel The Democracy To Come Back Into Power’

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has created a new position for herself, along with a new conspiracy theory about Donald Trump.

Cheney, who was voted out of her leadership position as GOP Conference Chair by a voice vote meeting on Wednesday, told NBC News about her new leadership role: “I intend to be the leader, one of the leaders, in a fight to help to restore our party.”

She added a new wrinkle in the form a conspiracy theory, saying that former President Donald Trump is willing “to unravel the democracy to come back into power.”

Cheney has criticized Trump continually the last few months, saying she believes that the continuing influence Trump has within the GOP is “very dangerous” and “a cult of personality.”

RELATED: Trump Celebrates After ‘Bitter Horrible Human Being’ Liz Cheney Is Ousted

Cheney Too Divisive For Leadership Role

Cheney’s ouster from GOP leadership stems from her constant attacks on the popular Trump. During her interview with NBC, Cheney said that, “silence is not an option.” She continued,

“For reasons that I don’t understand, leaders in my party have decided to embrace the former President who launched that attack. And I think you’ve watched over the course of the last several months, the former President get more aggressive, more vocal, pushing the lie, and I think that’s a really important thing for people to understand. This isn’t about looking backwards. This is about the real-time current potential damage that he’s doing, that he continues to do.”

Cheney also added, “He’s unfit. He never again can be anywhere close to the Oval Office.”

Cheney also had words for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, saying that she believes that he is “not leading with principle, and I think that is sad and I think it’s dangerous.”

Trump support aside, the main focus inside the GOP right now are the 2022 midterm elections, and winning back the House and Senate.

Republicans clearly felt that Cheney attacking the most popular Republican, Trump, was becoming a distraction to that goal.

That point was somewhat reiterated by Chairman of the Republican Study Committee Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN). “We are unified behind a single mission of winning back the majority and it was clear from the way that the vote occurred that 99% of our members are focused on that, so it’s time to move on.”

RELATED: Stacey Abrams Claims Trump Is ‘Symptom’ Of GOP’s ‘Disease’ Of Removing Inconvenient Voters

Cheney Is Not Alone In Her Opposition To Trump

Liz Cheney is not alone in her belief that Donald Trump is the death knell for the Republican Party.

A recent report from Reuters says that more than 100 former Republican officials are threatening to start a third party if the GOP does not see the error of its ways and break ties with Trump.

The group, “A Call for American Renewal,” is made up of former Bush White House Officials, Members of Congress, and others known for their never-Trumper stances.

Cheney is also not the only House member who voted to impeach Trump that will have a primary challenge in 2022. Of the ten members that voted to impeach, five have have challengers

However, others who have criticized Trump in the past were silent on the removal of Cheney. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell had no comment for reporters when asked about Cheney, and did not say anything on the Senate floor Wednesday morning.

Utah Senator Mitt Romney, also a fierce critic of Trump tweeted Wednesday morning, “Expelling Liz Cheney from leadership won’t gain the GOP one additional voter, but it will cost us quite a few.”

RELATED: Senator Mike Lee: Gas Prices, Inflation Due To ‘Excessive Government Spending’

What’s Next For Liz Cheney?

Even with two challengers for her seat next year, Cheney says she fully intends to run for re-election in 2022. She also told NBC News that a presidential run of her own was not out of the question. 

Until then, she says she is, “very focused on making sure that our party becomes again, a party that stands for truth, and stands for fundamental principles that are conservative. And mostly stands for the Constitution and I won’t let the former President or anybody else unravel the democracy. Whatever it takes.” 

But is Liz Cheney missing the direction the Republican Party is taking, based on what the voters said they wanted by voting for Donald Trump and continuing to support him? It is certainly making her the media’s new best friend.

Have the folks in Wyoming and the rest of the nation said loudly enough that they are tired of the go-along-to-get-along attitude of old school Republicans who are viewed as caving in to Democrats, and are looking for people with new blood and a fire in the belly? 

Liz Cheney may have won the battle by being the one currently in office, but Donald Trump may win the war.

GOP Rep. Cassidy Declares Trump Won’t Be Republican Nominee In 2024

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) went on Fox News Radio on Wednesday to respond to Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) being ousted as chairwoman of the House Republican Conference over her opposition to former President Donald Trump.

Cassidy, who voted in favor of impeaching Trump earlier this year, declared in this interview that Trump would not be the 2024 Republican presidential nominee.

Cassidy Sounds Off 

“We absolutely feel like we need a Republican Party which is committed to conservative values that will bring it forward,” Cassidy said. “As regards the president … returning to power, he lost. We lost the House. We lost the Senate. We lost the presidency and four years. Hasn’t happened since Herbert Hoover.”

“Parties and elections are about winning,” he added. “So, if you just want to brass tax it, we need to win. We can see that voters in swing districts did not swing for the Republican Party — they swang away. I supported the president’s policies. I was all on board — one of the senators that voted with him the most often — but parties are about winning, and unfortunately, over the last four years, we had a track record of losing. We need to win going forward.”

‘Republicans Are About Winning’

“Republicans are about winning,” he continued. “If we’re going to win, we can’t say, ‘Oh my gosh, we got more votes than anybody else in Republican history,’ but 7 million left to the Democrat. You know, that 7 million is the difference between Biden’s policies and our policies. We’ve got to be 7 million ahead, not 7 million behind.”

When asked if he would vote for Trump if he is the nominee, Cassidy responded, “He’s not going to be our nominee.”

Cheney slammed former President Donald Trump both before and after the vote to oust her.

“We must be true to our principles and to the Constitution,” Cheney told fellow House Republicans before the closed-door vote, according to the Today Show. “We cannot let the former president drag us backward and make us complicit in his efforts to unravel our democracy. Down that path lies our destruction and potentially the destruction of our country.”

After the vote, she added that if Trump decides to run again in 2024, “I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.”

Over 120 Retired Generals, Admirals Challenge Integrity Of 2020 Election, Question Biden’s Mental Fitness

A letter penned by 124 retired generals and admirals questions the mental fitness of President Biden and seemingly disputes the outcome of the 2020 election.

The group claims absentee ballots are not secure and questions election irregularities that were allegedly ignored in the previous presidential race.

The “Constitutional Republic is lost,” write the military leaders, without “fair and honest elections that accurately reflect the ‘will of the people.'”

“The FBI and Supreme Court must act swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020,” they continue.

Former President Donald Trump’s campaign and its allies lost dozens of court cases challenging Biden’s victory in several states, and despite repeated objections by Trump since then, there has been no evidence of widespread voter fraud.

RELATED: Lindsey Graham Warns Anti-Trump Republicans They’re Going To Wind Up ‘Getting Erased’

Biden’s Mental Fitness

The letter goes on to question both the mental and physical fitness of President Biden to serve as Commander-in-Chief.

“The mental and physical condition of the Commander in Chief cannot be ignored,” the group writes. “He must be able to quickly make accurate national security decisions involving life and limb anywhere, day or night.”

The group of retired military leaders refers to itself as ‘Flag Officers 4 America.’

They make mention of Democrats’ attempts to wrest away some control of the nuclear codes as Biden was first settling into office.

Dozens of House Democrats called on Biden to relinquish sole control over the country’s nuclear arsenal and the ability to launch a strike using those weapons back in February.

“Recent Democrat leadership’s inquiries about nuclear code procedures sends a dangerous national security signal to nuclear-armed adversaries, raising the question about who is in charge,” the group states.

“We must always have an unquestionable chain of command.”

Partisan Attack?

Contrary to the claims made in the letter, President Biden’s doctor released a report earlier this month maintaining that he is a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency.”

The letter from ‘Flag Officers 4 America’ was criticized by military members who maintain men and women serving in uniform should not be involved in political matters.

Jim Golby, an expert in civil-military relations, defined the letter as a “shameful effort to use their rank and the military’s reputation for such a gross and blatant partisan attack.”

Of course, ‘gross and blatant partisan attacks’ were all the rage during Trump’s tenure. In fact, one key military figure who engaged in such activities helped push Democrats to impeach the former President.

Business Insider accused the group of backing “a false election conspiracy.”

Politico ran a piece titled, “‘Disturbing and reckless’: Retired brass spread election lie in attack on Biden, Democrats”

In it, they note “…current and former military officers are speaking out, calling the missive a dangerous new sign of the military being dragged into the trenches of partisan warfare.”

The letter in question also takes issue with the Iran nuclear deal and suggests “illegals are flooding our country.”

Hillary Clinton Calls For ‘Global Reckoning’ With ‘Disinformation’

Former First Lady Hillary Clinton is advising that social media needs a “global reckoning” with disinformation, and urged the media to “rid themselves of both-sideism.”

In an interview with the Guardian, Clinton made the confusing argument that social media companies are at once too powerful, but also how they also need to tamp down more on certain kinds of views and information. 

She also bashed the mainstream press, saying, “They’ve got to rid themselves of both-sidesism.”

“It is not the same to say something critical of somebody on the other side of the aisle and to instigate an attack on the Capitol and to vote against certifying the election.”

“Those are not comparable, and it goes back to the problem of the press actually coming to grips with how out of bounds and dangerous the new political philosophy on the right happens to be.”

Oddly enough, Clinton never opposed anyone objecting to election certifications when Democrats did it over and over again both in 2017 and 2005.

Hillary Clinton Wants Political Opponents Shut Down Over ‘Misinformation’

Can you even recall a time in our nation when Democrats were so open and brazen about their attempts to shut down free speech in America?

Hillary Clinton proceeded to attack Big Tech companies, who have banned President Trump from ever offering his opinion on their platforms, for not doing enough to stop the spread of “misinformation.”

“The technology platforms are so much more powerful than any organ of the so-called mainstream press,” she claimed.

“And I do think that there has to be not just an American reckoning but a global reckoning with the disinformation, with the monopolistic power and control, with the lack of accountability that the platforms currently enjoy,” Clinton continued.

Clinton, who has repeatedly blamed her 2016 presidential election loss on Russian conspiracies, called for world governments to step in and regulate Big Tech.

“So governments are going to have to decide right now that the platforms have to be held to some kind of standard, and it’s tricky,” Clinton said.

Former President Donald Trump was banned from social media for daring to claim the 2020 election was stolen. Here you have Clinton, who claimed that Trump was an “illegitimate” President, saying this isn’t enough.

And Democrats think Republicans are fascists?

RELATED: Hillary Clinton Urges Trump Officials Involved in Impeachment Inquiry to ‘Tell the Truth’

She Needs A Global Reckoning With Herself

Where to even begin with this obvious case of projection on the part of Hillary Clinton? Perhaps the media needs a global reckoning with her own history of lies and misinformation.

Clinton, after all, admitted that her lawyer, Marc Elias, paid for the infamous Steele dossier.

Elias, in a lawsuit filed by former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, was accused of using “false information, misrepresentations and other misconduct to direct the power of the international intelligence apparatus and the media industry against” him to “further their political agenda.”

The dossier, which the Wall Street Journal has described as uncorroborated “junk,” was the basis for the Russia/Trump conspiracy news that dominated media during the former President’s administration.

Clinton, of course, was also integral in the lie that the Benghazi attacks were the result of an obscure YouTube video.

Former National Security Adviser under Barack Obama, Susan Rice, even claimed in her book that she was pushed to do five Sunday television interviews by the Obama administration to cover for Clinton by insisting on that story.

What other misinformation came from Hillary Clinton? Well, you could write a book.

Dodging sniper fire in Bosnia, claiming she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary, being “dead broke” after leaving the White House, and trying to join the Marines come to mind.

All of these are provable lies, some mundane, some quite serious. All misinformation that, if social media giants had a global reckoning over, would result in her banning as well.

The problem being, the media isn’t interested in ‘both-sideism.’ In essence, Hillary has already been granted her wish to stifle free speech.

Pelosi Mocks Male Republicans For Not Being Able To Handle Party ‘Girlfriend’ Liz Cheney

As calls grow for Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) to be ousted from her leadership roles, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is mocking male Republicans for trying to find a “non-threatening woman” to replace her.

Pelosi’s Spoof Ad

Staffers for Pelosi sent out a spoof “help wanted” ad as calls mounted to remove Cheney for her moves against former President Donald Trump, according to Yahoo News.

“Word is out that House GOP Leaders are looking to push Rep. Liz Cheney from her post as House Republican Party Chair – their most senior woman in GOP leadership – for a litany of very Republican reasons: she won’t lie, she isn’t humble enough, she’s like a girlfriend rooting for the wrong team, and more,” the ad stated.

“So what exactly are House GOP Leaders looking for in a #3? Punchbowl AM got the scoop and, well, it’s not surprising … they want a woman who isn’t a ‘threat’ to them,” it continued.

This was a reference to Punchbowl News, which reported on Tuesday that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (D-CA) and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) want Cheney ousted and replaced with someone who is “not relentlessly on message, but also someone who does not pose a threat to them and their power.”

McCarthy Sounds Off

While appearing on “Fox & Friends” this week, McCarthy said that some members of the caucus were “concerned” about Cheney’s capacity to do her job as a conference chairwoman.

“There’s no concern about how she voted on impeachment. That decision has been made. I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job as conference chair – to carry that message,” he said.

Cheney Attacks Trump

Cheney has long been an outspoken critic of Trump, recently saying that “it’s important” that he not run again in 2024.

“I don’t think that that’s going to happen,” Cheney told the Washington Examiner. “And I think it’s important that it not happen, given what he did.”

While she also said that she “certainly would never vote for a Democrat” and she also stated that she does not think Trump “should be president again.”
