GOP Says House Approval to Add D.C. as State is Power Grab

This week, Democrats made yet another move to grab power in our political world by putting D.C. up for statehood.

However, if D.C. is given statehood, it would give even more power to Democrats, as it is no secret the city is dominated by the left.

Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) made that exact point, stating, “This is not Congress’ land. This is Maryland’s land.

CNN Legal Analyst: No, it’s not enough to warrant all of this.

A stunning move by the DOJ and FBI.

This same DOJ labeled parents in Loudoun County as terrorists and failed to enforce federal law to protect Justices in their homes. Selective, politically motivated actions have no place in our democracy.
