House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy also addressed the nation from the US Capitol Thursday after the CDC recommended face-masks for some vaccinated Americans; saying the organization has become a “political arm of the administration.”
“We have a country in crisis. A recent poll shows our optimism about this country’s direction has plummeted 20 points since May. This should surprise no one,” said McCarthy. “Every time they go to the grocery store, they’re paying more. Every time they turn on the news, they’re seeing crime.”
“Every time the CDC releases new guidance, it punishes Americans who have already done everything they’ve been asked to do,” he added. “The CDC has become a political arm of the administration. It wants to control every element of our lives.”

McCarthy ripped Speaker Nancy Pelosi Wednesday after the top Democrat called him a “moron” for questioning the reinstated mask mandate in the House of Representatives but not Senate.
“He’s such a moron,” said Pelosi as she entered her SUV near the Capitol complex.

“If she’s so brilliant, can she explain to me where the science in the building changes between the House and the Senate,” fired-back McCarthy.

Masks will once-again be required for all people in the House of Representatives just one month after relaxing the rules to comply with new guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control.
“To be clear, for meetings in an enclosed US House of Representatives controlled space, masks are REQUIRED,” a letter from the Capitol Hill physician, Brian Monahan, reads.
“For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan added.
STEFANIK SAYS ‘NO’: Rep Drafts Bill to Stop Gitmo Prisoners from Getting CoVID Vaccine Before Americans

“Republican Iowa Rep. Ashley Hinson and Republican New York Rep. Elise Stefanik introduced the resolution, saying that those imprisoned for alleged terrorism crimes should only be able to receive the vaccine after every American has had the chance to,” reports the Daily Caller.

“Americans need to get the vaccine before terrorists, and it’s upsetting to me that that even was a question, and I think we need to make sure the administration is held accountable for this and that’s what I think this resolution does,” Hinson told Fox News. “It puts a spotlight on the thinking and the planning that was going on behind this.”
“It is inexcusable and un-American that President Biden is prioritizing vaccines for Gitmo terrorist detainees over American citizens, including veterans, first responders, 9/11 first responders, and seniors,” Stefanik said. “Every American should have access to vaccines before these heinous terrorists.”

STEFANIK on HANNITY: Democrats Moving to Impeach Trump ‘Without a Single Shred of Evidence’
Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik stopped-by the Sean Hannity Show Thursday to weigh-in on the Democrats’ never-ending impeachment fantasy; saying lawmakers have yet to a see a “single shred of evidence” of any wrongdoing by the President of the United States.
“Are your Democratic colleagues going to go along with this?” asked Hannity.
“There’s an obsession on impeachment that we’ve heard from Democrats since the day President Trump was elected. They’ve been looking for any opportunity without a single shred of evidence,” said Stefanik.
“I’ve never seen any abuse of power like I’ve seen from Adam Schiff… Every American should be outraged. It’s un-American to utilize a position of power,” she added. “What’s been so stunning is the disastrous hearing that Jerry Nadler chaired this last week.”
