Kevin McCarthy: Republican Majority Will Hold Biden Administration Accountable from ‘Day One

Republican leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Wednesday made it clear that the forthcoming GOP majority in the U.S. House will hold the Biden administration and Democrats accountable from “day one” — from investigating the origins of the Chinese coronavirus to the Department of Justice targeting concerned parents to the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.

“You deserve to know the origins of COVID. You deserve to know why the DOJ went after concerned parents. You deserve to know why we failed to keep American lives safe in Afghanistan. On day one a Republican majority will begin holding this administration accountable,” McCarthy said in a viral social media post:

When the slogan "Serve & Protect" is not enough.

A Philadelphia gas station owner hired heavily armed guards to fend off criminals amid a dangerous rise in crime, according to a report.

Neil Patel hired Pennsylvania S.I.T.E Agents armed with AR-15’s and shotguns to stand outside his Karco gas station at Broad and Clearfield streets in Northern Philadelphia, according to Fox 5 NY.

“They are forcing us to hire the security, high-level security, state level,” Patel told Fox 29. “We are tired of this nonsense; robbery, drug trafficking, hanging around gangs.”

If only the banks would cough up gobs and shittons of cash the thuggery would stop.

AOC unethical? Probably, we know her bra size is larger than her IQ.

The House Committee on Ethics announced on Wednesday that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is under investigation for a potential ethics violation.
In a press release, the Committee stated that the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) referred the matter to them on June 23, 2022, the same day it received an OCE referral regarding fellow New York Democrat Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney.

“The Committee notes that the mere fact of a referral or an extension, and the mandatory disclosure of such an extension and the name of the subject of the matter, does not itself indicate that any violation has occurred, or reflect any judgment on behalf of the Committee,” the panel said.

James Bond has had a lot of gadgets over the years. Are these these the Top 10 in your mind?

After creating so many cinematic memories on the big screen, the James Bond franchise is celebrating its 60th anniversary. While news of what comes next for the saga is pretty thin at the moment, there is one certainty about what’s in store: The next James Bond will boast some intriguing, fun, and altogether dangerous gadgets.

It’s become a staple of the series, with the genre as a whole looking to the James Bond movies for inspiration when crafting their own equipment. While the likes of the Kingsman and Johnny English series might have taken some of the gadgets a step further into comedic territory, the devices that 007 uses throughout his adventures can often be grounded in a hyper-reality that pulls from real-world technology but are defined by an imaginative edge. These designs were memorable for their uses in the field and how cool they truly are as a concept. And although Bond might have some of the best gadgets out there, that isn’t to say that his enemies and allies aren’t also well-equipped.

There once was a topless chick from Nantucket............

A bylaw amendment that will allow all people to be topless on Nantucket beaches regardless of gender has been approved by Attorney General Maura Healey.

The determination, addressed to Town Clerk Nancy Holmes, amends the town’s Protection of Coastal Areas and Open Spaces bylaws to add: “In order to promote equality for all persons, any person shall be allowed to go topless on any public or private beach within the Town of Nantucket.”

Current state law dictates that only men can be barechested in public — if women do the same, they can face a penalty of up to three years in prison and a fine of up to $300, provided that a complaint is filed with the police department.
