Sen. Marsha Blackburn says the infrastructure bill is the ‘gateway to socialism’

Marsha Blackburn Senator

By Jenny Goldsberry

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) blasted President Biden’s infrastructure bill Sunday calling it “the gateway to socialism.” Blackburn railed against their exorbitant spending on Fox News.

The Tennessee Senator voted no on the Sinema-Porter Amendment and on the underlying bill Sunday night. “This is, number one, the gateway to socialism,” Blackburn said. “This is their down payment on the Green New Deal.”

Next, the Senate will be voting on the budget bill out of the Finance Committee. The $3.5 trillion budget will not need a super majority to pass. As long as senators vote down party lines, it is likely to pass. As the Senate’s recess approaches, many are tempted to speed up the process.

“When you look at the fact that does not even count the money that they would come up short in the years on this, you are talking about this is something too expensive to afford,” Blackburn continued. “And there is no reason to say, ‘August is here, we have got to pass this bill.’ We need to be more thoughtful and do a bill that is going to tend to roads and rivers and runways and railways and broadband, and do it with the money that we have.”

Otherwise, the national debt will last decades longer, according to Blackburn.

“Don’t go spending the money that our children and grandchildren are going to have to pay back, mortgaging their future, taking away their freedom,” Blackburn said. “So I am standing up for hard-working Tennesseans who have told me loud and clear they’re all for infrastructure. I am all for infrastructure. I am not for this bill. I am not for the amount of debt this is going to pour onto our nation’s books. And I am not for mortgaging the kids’ future.”

Senators voted to end the debate Sunday night. Yet its final vote will happen Monday or Tuesday.

Alec Baldwin Lowest of the Low; Blames Victim For Shooting ‘Everything is at her Direction’

Published

Alec Baldwin

“Just when you think Alec Baldwin can’t go any lower, he blames Halyna Hutchins, the woman he shot to death, for getting shot to death” writes the New York Post. Naturally, Baldwin gifted his first interview since the tragic death of Hutchins to his Hampton’s buddy and leftwing media host George Stephanopoulos.

“Everything is at her direction,” Baldwin told George Stephanopoulos during the hourlong interview that aired Thursday night on ABC. Ultimately the entire one hour can be summed up by Baldwin’s twelve words: “Someone is responsible for what happened, and I know it’s not me.”

For any viewers looking for anything particularly meaningful from Baldwin or for him to answer tough questions, a sit-down with his liberal elite buddy was not the place to get it. “I’m holding the gun where she told me to hold it,” Baldwin said, “which ended up right below her armpit. Which is what I was told — I don’t know.”

He carried on, “I would never point a gun at anyone, and pull the trigger at them. Never.” Oddly he had just finished describing how he was pointing the gun at Hutchins.
Agent Bobby Chacon, a retired FBI agent who works as a writer and on-set consultant for Hollywood stated “The bullet striking and killing that woman came out of the barrel of the gun pointed directly at her…Bullets don’t curve. He isn’t in ‘The Matrix.’ The trigger would still have to be pulled.”

The New York Post reports:

“I’m not aware of any gun firing itself,” says Steve Wolf, a Hollywood firearms and special-effects expert since 1994. “I’ve never seen a gun self-discharge. A single-action revolver like this” — the Colt that Baldwin fired — “can be discharged very easily, with minimal input required … The trigger still must have been pressed.”
Wolf is also outraged by a larger concern. “It’s really important to discredit anyone who claims that guns fire themselves,” he says. “If this becomes an acceptable defense, there goes any accountability when it comes to shooting people. We can’t have this kind of ‘guns shoot themselves’ thing. They don’t.”
