1 – House to vote on consolidated election bill Thursday, Pelosi says
The Hill reports: The House plans to take up and advance a consolidated election and voting rights bill on Thursday in order to allow the Senate to give it “urgent consideration,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Wednesday evening.

“Under the steady leadership of Chairman Jim McGovern, the House Rules Committee will meet tonight to prepare legislation for the Floor that combines key provisions of two crucial bills: the Senate’s Freedom to Vote Act and the House’s John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act,” Pelosi wrote in a “Dear Colleague” letter on Wednesday.

“After the meeting concludes, the House will convene tonight to pass the Rule for this legislation. Tomorrow, the House will pass the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act and send it to the Senate for consideration,” she added.

“President Biden made it crystal clear that the Senate must find a path forward to enshrine critical voting rights legislation into law. Tonight, to defend our democracy, House Democrats will take a step to send the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act to the Senate for urgent consideration,” Pelosi said.

DML: Why do I feel America is just teetering on the edge of a cliff?

2 – Harris says she won’t ‘absolve’ senators over voting rights push
The Hill reports: Vice President Harris said in an interview that she would not “absolve” 50 Republican senators opposing Democrats’ voting rights and election legislation of their responsibility to hold “free and fair elections and access to the ballot.”

“I will not absolve the 50 Republicans in the United States Senate from responsibility for upholding one of the most basic and important tenets of our democracy, which is free and fair elections and access to the ballot for all eligible voters,” Harris said in an interview with NBC’s Craig Melvin, part of which aired Wednesday evening on “NBC Nightly News.”

Melvin asked Harris about Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who have both expressed opposition to getting rid of the 60-vote Senate filibuster — a legislative rule currently blocking Democrats from being able to pass voting rights legislation amid Republican opposition.

“I don’t think anyone should be absolved from the responsibility of preserving and protecting our democracy,” Harris answered. “Especially when they took an oath to protect and defend our Constitution.”

DML: Harris, here’s the deal… Republicans are standing AGAINST this Dem power grab because they DID take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution!

3 – Joy Reid mocks Ron DeSantis for touting freedom in Florida, calls the state ‘authoritarian’
Fox News reports: MSNBC’s Joy Reid, host of “The Reidout,” railed against Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Wednesday over his speech in which he celebrated freedom in the red state amid Democrats continuing to push for further crackdowns to quell the spread of COVID-19.

In his “State of the State” speech Tuesday, DeSantis commented how Florida is becoming a refuge for those looking to escape “authoritarian, arbitrary and seemingly never-ending mandates and restrictions.” He went on to call out the policies he deemed “destructive” and based on “blind adherence” to “Faucian declarations.”

Reid accused DeSantis of conducting a natural immunity experiment in his state and for having a reckless disregard for Floridians’ health.

“DeSantis sure loves a talk about freedom, especially the kind that risks the health of people in his own state who have essentially been part of a giant natural herd immunity experiment for the past two years, whether they want to be or not,” Reid said.

She went so far as to claim that it was as if “more COVID [cases] was always the goal” for DeSantis. “[A] new report states that 80 percent of Floridians will likely contract omicron at this rate. Which of course, means more customers for Ron’s top donors’ miracle cure, yay!”

Reid also went into a rage against DeSantis on Monday:

DML: Joy Reid, you just STAY OUT of Florida!

4 – Army has relieved six active-duty commanders for refusing COVID-19 vaccine
CBS News reports: The Army has relieved six active-duty commanders, including two battalion commanders, and issued 2,994 general officer written reprimands to soldiers for refusing a COVID vaccine.

In a release Wednesday, the Army said the punishments were for refusing the lawful order by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. The Army has not yet initiated separations for soldiers refusing the vaccine but expects further guidance later this month.

At least 96% of active-duty soldiers in the Army are fully vaccinated. The deadline set by the Army for active-duty soldiers to complete their COVID vaccination was December 15, 2021.

The Army has not granted any religious exemption requests but has received 2,128 requests. The Navy, Air Force and Marines also have not granted any religious exemption requests so far.

DML: This is an outrage!

5 – Teenager who committed infamous Loudoun high school sexual assaults sentenced
The Washington Examiner reports: The male high school student at the center of the high-profile sexual assault cases at two Virginia high schools was sentenced Wednesday to a “locked residential program” and must register as a sex offender.

The student’s assaults gained national media attention after it was revealed the Loudoun County school board allowed the student to attend a different school after having committed the first assault — only to commit a second assault at the new school, prompting accusations of a cover-up.

WJLA reported Wednesday that the judge in the case, referring to the teenager’s psychological reports, said, “You scare me. What I read in those reports scared me and should scare families and scare society.”

A “locked residential program” is a type of program offered by a residential psychiatric facility in which patients are under constant supervision.

  1. So Reid… why are all your cohorts going to Florida to experience freedom that God and our constitution has granted us ? How about you maintain your boundaries and stay in your confined miserable space with your mouth closed and wallow in your poor choices. Leave the happy people LIVE freely !

  2. Reid… the definition of freedom in part includes the ability to make your own health decisions . When the government makes them for you ,they are being authoritarian and you Joy are perpetuating this authority. So you are not being a nice person. You are being driven by a n evil spirit.

  3. Liars. Whoa!!! I was typing out Democrats and the word Liars popped up instead. How perfect is that???

    And they are Liars. None of what they said about voting laws is true. The Republicans are trying to save the constitution. The Democrats are trying to do away with it. It’s that simple.

  4. The Republicans are being murdered with messaging. They are always on the defensive and never on the offensive. The Dems always have a well oiled message (of lies) that they sell very well. The MSM just helps push that message.

    The Republicans have got to get their 5hit together or we are certainly doomed.

  5. The first victim, daughter of Mr Smith, was assulted on her first day back to school after this happened. It also took a while to get charges, but that trial starts next week. It’s a never ending horror for that family.

  6. I think the man teen received an unreasonably light punishment for his crimes. I’m glad he has to register as a sex offender, but I think he should be in jail.

    While he is a minor, his crimes are those of an adult – and he did it again after being caught the first time. He clearly has no remorse for his actions, as he repeated them. Nope, he doesn’t belong out free in society.

  7. And we won’t absolve you for stealing and destroying our country. We will go for the death penalty and hang all of you for treason . You leave us no other choice there is coming a day of reckoning and it won’t be pretty . This makes me really sad all because you refuse to sit down and discuss the problems in the country and just push your way thru. We are not turning our backs anymore .
