SEAC at Southern Border

Republicans and several border patrol experts say that President Joe Biden’s open border policies are politically motivated and are an attempt to get more voters for the 2024 election.

“It’s part of what the Democrats want,” Congressman Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., said on a joint AMAC and Just the News Special aired on Real America’s Voice. “The hard left that controls the Democratic Party today is okay with rigging elections. That’s one more way to rig an election.”

Andy Biggs Commentary: Congress Can’t Continue the Budget Insanity

In the current atmosphere of acrimony surrounding the failure of Congress to produce a balanced budget, or even an unbalanced budget, it is important to review the facts. The facts are important because the Uniparty, the Swamp, the Establishment, and many media propagandists are engaged in a parade of fearmongering.
