Johnson read:

    After insistence from a Republican senator that the COVID-19 relief bill should be read out in its entirety, senate clerks took hours to read over the bill. Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson was adamant that the 628-page COVID-19 relief bill be read over entirely, and even objected to waiving the reading of the pages, NBC4 reported. “Since more than 90% of this “COVID relief” belief is not even related to COVID, I think we need a full reading of the bill,” Johnson wrote in a tweet Wednesday.

    Who needs Amazon’s Audible when you can tune in to the Senate floor? Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., made good on his promise Thursday when he forced Senate clerks to read all 628 pages from President Biden’s COVID-19 relief bill. “I feel bad for the clerks that are going to have to read it, but it’s just important,” Johnson told reporters, according to the Financial Times. “So often, we rush these massive bills that are hundreds if not thousands of pages long. You don’t, nobody has time to read them. At a minimum, somebody ought to read it.” Chad Pergram, Fox News’ congressional correspondent, reported that at about 9 pm ET, roughly 45 percent of the bill had been read. The reading wrapped up at 2:05 am Friday morning. The Senate could not begin debate on the bill until the clerk finishes reading it out loud. Pergram reported that senators may ask periodically to dispense with the reading....

    Garion Frankel, The Western Journal March 4, 2021 0 Comments For decades, the GOP has portrayed itself as the party of fiscal responsibility, but when push comes to shove, it has not acted all that fiscally responsible. Time after time, Republicans have talked a big game about halting massive expansions of government spending, only to roll over and let them happen whenever sticking to their word would require actual guts. Thankfully, one GOP Senator is legitimately standing up for the American taxpayer and fighting against the Democrats’ monstrous 628-page, $1.9 trillion COVID “relief” bill. Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson told WISN-AM that he intended to “make them read their 600-700 page bill” aloud so that “every member of the Senate has time to read” the legislation and to “highlight that this is not relief and that it’s a Democratic boondoggle,” according to National Review. Fox News estimated the reading would...

Vice President Kamala Harris broke the chamber’s 50-50 tie to allow debate to begin. The process was immediately hampered when Republican Senator Ron Johnson demanded that the...

Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican and a fiscal conservative, said he’s opposed to the cost and scope of the spending package, which provides $350 billion to bail out state and local governments, among many other provisions.

Earlier this week, President Obama said on the Snapchat show, Good Luck America, that “snappy” slogans such as  #DefundThePolice hinder progress in the movement for police reform.  Read More: Obama: Candidates lose support with ‘snappy’ slogans like ‘defund the police’ (Photo: Getty Images) “The key is deciding, do you want to actually get something done, or do you want to feel good among the people you already agree with?” Obama said.

    Getty Eagles starting right tackle Lane Johnson has a "lingering" ankle injury. The Eagles didn’t conduct practice on Thanksgiving Day but the team still put out an estimated injury report. It was a pretty standard list of the usual ailing suspects, save for Alex Singleton. The breakout star linebacker has been winning kudos and praise — well, guarded optimism from Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz — while earning extra snaps on defense. Singleton had almost single-handedly breathed life into a mostly dysfunctional Philly linebacker unit. He was listed on Thursday’s injury report as limited with an ankle injury. “You have to be critical of yourself and you have to look at the things that you need to clean up and not just sort of get drunk on your success so to speak,” Schwartz said. “I really like Alex’s mentality that way. Makes mistakes like a lot of young...
    Stand firm, PM BORIS Johnson must not buckle to ­Brussels in these pivotal final days in the EU trade talks. A sellout is the certain road to rapid political ruin. Leavers would not forgive a Prime Minister who brought them so close only to surrender powers at the last moment. Nigel Farage is waiting to hoover up their votes in the millions. 3Boris cannot buckle to Brussels even if it means No Deal — he must stand firm, The Sun saysCredit: Getty Images - Getty The Sun expected the EU to capitalise on Dominic Cummings’ departure. It is disappointing though to hear claims that senior Cabinet members are suddenly now urging the PM, cooped up in self-isolation, to cave in to get a deal over the line. If true, he must resist. Nothing Britain has demanded is unreasonable. We want only what any dispassionate observer would expect of a...
    Dominic Cummings leaves 10 Downing Street this evening – Henry Nicholls/Reuters Sajid Javid tipped for top role after Cummings quits Sajid Javid has emerged as a front-runner for a senior role in Boris Johnson’s new team at Number 10 after the exits of the former Vote Leave colleagues Dominic Cummings and Lee Cain. Michael Gove, the Cabinet Office minister, is being tipped to take over as Health Secretary in a reshuffle to relaunch Mr Johnson’s Government early next year. Mr Javid – ousted as Chancellor in February – is understood to have raised the idea of being appointed chief of staff with the Prime Minister in the summer. It would be highly unusual for a sitting MP to take on the role. It comes as the Government hit back at suggestions Mr Cummings’ departure will pave the way for Mr Johnson to concede in Brexit talks and “accept EU conditions”. The departure of...

    The Wisconsin Republican claimed a satirical tweet is voter suppression — and then shared it with the world. In a Senate hearing on Wednesday, Republican Ron Johnson questioned heads of social media companies who have taken down or restricted access to Donald Trump's tweets for spreading misinformation.However, in the process, Johnson bizarrely ended up bringing attention to a satirical tweet that mentioned him strangling a dog. The moment happened when Johnson asked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey about blocking misinformation on civic integrity and used this satirical tweet that Twitter did not remove as an example of misinformation that should have been removed. Here is the exchange Johnson had with Dorsey: Mr. Dorsey, you talked about your policies toward misinformation and that you will block misinformation if it's about civic integrity, election interference or voter suppression.   Let me give you...
    A top Republican senator blamed U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation for presenting a roadblock to documents sought by Congress. This is why Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said "it is incredibly disappointing" if the federal prosecutor does not intend to release an interim report before the Nov. 3 election due to concerns about such a disclosure being viewed as political as Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo reported on Sunday. "What's political is if he doesn't report," the Wisconsin Republican declared. Johnson said the "deep state" has, "through these other investigations," prevented the public "from knowing what happened with the FBI's corruption of their investigation, the corruption of the transition process, for about three-and-a-half years." "We have been prevented from getting documents because John Durham doesn't want us to in any way, shape, or form affect his prosecution,"...
    NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is currently investigating the attack against Tiffany Johnson, who was jogging in Queens when a white woman approached her, threw a glass bottle at her and called her the n-word.  Authorities say that 37-year-old Tiffany Johnson was jogging in Queens when a white woman approached her and threw a glass bottle at her while calling her the n-word.  “She was so loud and aggressive,” Johnson told ABC7. “She did call me the n-word, and I mean I’m not an n-word, none of us are, but the reality is that this woman felt that she needed me to be that, and I would just say that she needs to look into herself as to why.”  Read More: Racism drives Vermont NAACP leader from her home Johnson was unaware that a passerby was recording the confrontation that happened around noon on Monday, Aug. 17.

    (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images) Supermodel Beverly Johnson rose to fame when she became the Black American model to appear on the cover of American Vogue in August 1974. Johnson admits that when she embarked on a modelling career, she was told by the top agent at the time, Eileen Ford, that “You’ll never be on the cover of Vogue magazine.”  But the New York native said she “prayed” for it, and once she landed the coveted cover of the high fashion magazine, Johnson said she “had to honor it.” In doing so, however, she had to “make myself not react” to the cesspool of racism that she had to navigate in order to prove her worth, People magazine reports.
