New – Jim Inhofe, chairman of Senate Armed Services, told me he plans to move ahead with a defense authorization bill — and it will NOT include provisions to repeal protections for social media companies, defying Trump’s veto threat.— Manu Raju (@mkraju) December 2, 2020
Inhofe said he has relayed that to Trump
Inhofe also told @alexanderbolton and me that the bill will contain a Senate-passed provision to rename military properties that carry names of Confederate leaders, despite Trump’s warning that he would veto the bill over that provision. Inhofe said he spoke to Trump about this— Manu Raju (@mkraju) December 2, 2020
Inhofe said that he vowed to kill Confederate language previously because he assumed Trump would win— Manu Raju (@mkraju) December 2, 2020
“It looks that is likely not going to happen – so that changed the dynamics altogether.”
He also said the language ensures names won’t be changed immediately – takes a few years
I didn’t vote in the 2020 election.
I missed out on the chance to support the mainstream conservative agenda.
“Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) is expected to seek Senate passage of his S.386 job-outsourcing bill Wednesday evening.
If no Republican or Democrat objects to Lee’s actions, his bill will pass the Senate by so-called “Unanimous Consent,” (UC), setting the stage for a joint House-Senate conference to draft a final bill.
Lee’s aggressive effort to pass the bill by UC is a threat to the GOP Senators and their slim majority, an immigration activist told Breitbart News. “They have to give Georgia Republicans a reason to vote [in January] — and UC for this bill ain’t that,” the activist said.
Lee is trying to pass the bill after Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) dropped his opposition to the legislation.
Activists hope that Georgia Senators Kelly Loeffler and Sen. David Perdue will announce opposition to the bill — although Lee’s surprise move caught them while they are campaigning in Georgia. In August, Loeffler praised President Donald Trump for adopting reforms of the H-1B program. …”
The agenda being … renaming Confederate military bases, protecting Big Tech, Mike Lee’s outsourcing bill, conserving the student loan debt burden, the upcoming pivot to reforming entitlements and the amnesty for illegal aliens that Thom Tillis and John Cornyn are working on.
