Virginia’s new Lt. Governor Winsome Sears is a force to be reckoned with and proved nothing will stand in her way to get her job done. All documented on Twitter, of course, Sears reportedly used her high-heeled patent leather pump as a gavel in the Virginia Senate.

Washington Post reporter Laura Vozzella first tweeted that “an unknown prankster” took the gavel and hid it. However, Sears “took the trick in stride.” The Lt. Gov took off her shiny shoe, stated, “one shoe can change your life…just ask Cinderella.”

The tweet included a photograph of the shoe, which Sears retweeted from her own account with the phrase “resourcefulness – never underestimate it!” Sears has been making waves and aggravating Democrats because she is the first Black female lieutenant governor of Virginia; and she is a Republican.

Sears also controls the narrow Democrat majority in the state Senate, meaning she is the tie-breaking vote if needed, which she quickly had to do almost upon taking office. On February 10, 2022 she tweeted:

“In my role as Lieutenant Governor, I preside over the Senate each day. While I am not a member of the Senate, I hold the tie-breaking vote in the event of a tie. Today, I had my first opportunity to do so on SB137.”

SB137 was related to discretionary sentencing guidelines, reports Fox News. Sears is a “critical player in the administration of the newly sworn-in Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin, who has taken measures related to COVID-29 and critical race theory in schools.”

As Fox News reports, the administration has taken the state, run previously by a Democratic administration, by storm. “On his first day in office, Youngkin singed 11 executive actions, including needing the use of critical race theory in schools, investigating officials’ alleged wrongdoing in Loudoun County and allowing parents to decide fi their children should wear masks in schools.”

Federal Reserve Economist on hidden camera: ‘we don’t want Trump to be in the government’

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
