WSJ News Exclusive | U.S. Looks to Ease Venezuela Sanctions, Enabling Chevron to Pump Oil

America shouldn’t have to beg Venezuela or any foreign country for oil. The president should stop his war on American energy by drilling here and drilling now.

The Biden administration is preparing to scale down sanctions on President Nicolás Maduro’s authoritarian regime to allow Chevron to resume pumping oil there, according to people familiar with the proposal.

Authorities find 15,000 rainbow fentanyl pills in Lego box, largest seizure of the drug in NYC history, DEA says | CNN

Fentanyl is the number one cause of overdose death in America and the cartels are now bringing it through our wide open southern border as rainbow colored candy.

If you don’t prosecute crime, you get more crime—Period.

Federal authorities have accused a New Jersey woman of concealing approximately 15,000 rainbow-colored fentanyl pills in a Lego box as part of a drug trafficking scheme, in what US Drug Enforcement Administration authorities said in a news release is the largest seizure of the drug in New York City....

Hurricane Ian is expected to deliver light to moderate rainfall to Maryland this weekend and with it, the chance of isolated instances of flooding, mainly in southern MD and the lower Eastern Shore. Minor coastal/tidal flooding is expected for many MD sites, starting with the Friday afternoon tide cycle. Waterspouts are possible Saturday morning.

Please remain vigilant and monitor your local weather and news in case the forecast changes.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of presenting Captain Eddie Somers with a special Congressional Recognition Award. For 25 years, Eddie has faithfully looked after the safety of the waterways as well as the Tangier and Smith Island communities. I’m glad the Maryland DNR named their newest vessel after him. He earned it!

If you think energy costs are high now, wait until your heating bill kicks in this winter. Even with high food prices, gas prices, and crime rates, Democrats prefer to fund leftist climate policies and 87,000 new IRS agents.

This is why new Leadership and Legislation is needed in Washington.

An invasive species may be playing a role in the summer's high crab prices

Thanks for highlighting the alarm we are raising to control the harmful blue catfish species in the Bay. As this article says, Maryland seafood processors need to be exempt from the burdensome inspection requirements that are standing in the way of turning more wild-caught blue catfish into filets. This is a priority of mine in Congress.

The invasive fish population is exploding as native crab populations hit record lows.

President Biden, instead of trying to unify America as he promised he would at his inauguration, tonight issued a call to war against half the nation. This partisan political rant by a sitting president in such a historical setting was a disgrace.

Reading, math scores fell sharply during pandemic, data show

The lockdowns were devastating to our children’s education - and now the DC mayor wants to expel students who don’t get unnecessary COVID vaccines.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Math and reading scores for America’s 9-year-olds fell dramatically during the first two years of the pandemic, according to a new federal study — offering an early glimpse of the sheer magnitude of the learning setbacks dealt to the nation's children.

There is no such thing as a free lunch so let’s be clear that no one’s debts were paid—all Biden did was increase inflation, the price of higher education, and transfer hundreds of billions in unpaid loans for spending to the next generation.

Number of illegal border crossings this year: over 2,001,034

Number of new IRS agents: 87,000

Joe Biden’s priorities are clear: Fund the IRS to investigate Americans and not Border Patrol agents to stop the wave of illegals.

All the towns in rural areas of this country basically are worse off than the urban areas. A lot of the government’s attention frequently goes to the urban areas. So, I’m glad we could work with the USDA and get one of these rural grants.

It was my pleasure to congratulate Captain Wade Murphy at the Talbot Watermen Association event at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in Saint Michaels. Captain Murphy is not only the oldest skipjack captain on the bay but he is also the captain of the oldest skipjack, the Rebecca T Ruark, built in 1886 on the Eastern Shore. It was also a honor to speak at the start of the Boat Docking Contest, a great Eastern Shore tradition.

Your photo does not reflect reality. Are you a Q member and also a Republican. You obviously have an over abundance of "fool" cells in your crainium. There are no empty shelves in Oregon and the responses illicited by your bogus posted photo indicates that you are inaccurate.
Gee I'm buying hamburger at half price, T-bones and strips at 4.97 a pound. Ribeyes are 6 bucks. Big big shrimp at 6 a pound. Packages of chicken are buy one get one free this week. So if there is an issue, I would say it is local or you're a liar.
You regard women as breeding stock, Petri dishes for Jesus. The problem with that is it violates the First Amendment.

"Huh?" I hear you muttering.

Your anti-abortion stand is Christian. Sectarian and parochial. JEWISH tradition not only permits terminating pregnancy, but Jewish law requires it when the life or health of the pregnant woman is at stake. Even orthodox Judaism, which vigorously opposes elective abortion, does not define a fetus as a person. Abortion is a part of Jewish life in America. One in four who can get pregnant will terminate a pregnancy by the age of 45.

Christians trying to deny Jewish women access to abortion are violating the First Amendment, which forbids government from promoting one religion over others, and from restricting an individual’s religious practices.

That renders you antisemitic in the most egregious way.

I'm old enough to remember Republicans who didn't merit being pushed down an elevator shaft for the sake of the nation.

I remember Republicans whose loyalty was to the nation rather than to an unprincipled power-hungry cabal.

I rember Republicans who didn't make a mockery of conservatism.

You supported the most corrupt politician in American history. You put Donald Trump ahead of the nation.

Trump loyalists like you proclaimed to anyone willing and even unwilling to listen that one must be a Democrat or liberal or progressive to dismiss Trump as the most corrupt, inept, emotionally arrested prolific liar in American history.

No presidential candidate in history was ever more opposed by members of HIS OWN PARTY.

You self-identify as “conservative.” I get that. It has got a great sound to it. Solid. American. CONSERVATIVE!

Unfortunately, your notion of conservatism is defined by Donald Trump, and not by any ideology. You and too many people like you wouldn’t understand what that means if someone hit you on the head with a copy of Barry Goldwater’s “Conscience of a Conservative” nailed to a baseball bat. And it’s a slam dunk that you never read it.

Do you believe Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Reagan, Goldwater, Javitz, George Romney, Arlen Specter, Margaret Chase Smith, Lawrence Hogan Sr., Gifford Pinchot, Thaddeus Stevens, or Charles Sumner could abide by Trump? Do you even know all these people? Of course you don’t. But you should.

You’ll worship Trump tomorrow as enthusiastically as you did yesterday, no matter how much more we learn about his corruption today. Reality changes. You cannot. You’re too existentially invested.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, in his brilliant 1841 essay “Self-Reliance” (another work real conservatives revere that you never read) said the same thing, albeit more eloquently than I ever could. And he did so with fewer willfully ignorant Americans to inspire him:

“A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen, philosophers and divines.”

As former Speaker of the House John Boehner noted, “Trump’s not a Republican. He’s not a Democrat. He’s a populist. He doesn’t have an ideological bone in his body.” The same can be and should be said about you.

You are not conservative. You’re in a dying cult whose Kool-Aid is an ice-cold pitcher of fear and ignorance. And you make real conservatives want to vomit.
Dr. Harris, please support the Big Cat Public Safety Act. It is vital to protect the wild cats.
Thank you!
What is your opinion of the Jan 6th insurrection ?
Why are you denying the existence of the pandemic causing the supply chain problems?
You are purposely ignoring the effects of the worldwide pandemic in order to achieve a political agenda.
Shame on you and your party.
Do better.
Sincerely
A concerned American citizen.
Quit spreading lies about grocery stores....You are a Rep...work with and not against our President to better our country and not your bank account.
Why would you lie, and post a picture of a grocery store with empty shelves here on Facebook? Can you at least post the name of this store so we can call and confirm? There are thousands of comments on the post that dispute your claim. Our shelves are well stocked. Why do you lie?
Congressman Harris:

I invite you and others to support a new program that is outlined below in a message that I posted on the President's FB nad the White House page below....If your staff that is admining your page here can transmit that message to YOU----I hope You in turn, will "transmit" it to the president in return.......Here is that message:

Mr. President: We need a new strategy and a new / directional approach to the situation concerning the Republicans and how to get both Manchin and Senima in or a proposal that is mutually beneficial to all.

We are working (still work in progress) on a proposal called the Solution Based Strategy and Fast Track Program-(SBS / FTP) which is a 5 year / $650 billion dollar / poverty fighting program that utilizes mass / scale / rapid / build / projects to effect immediate physical and environmental poverty / remediation--to bring about an immediate / social, economic, racial and environmental change throughout vast urban and rural areas.

The plan doles out roughly $13 billion dollars per state. Or, roughly $2.6 billion annually in funding to specific nonprofits only for developing large scale projects. Projects that have a minimum cost of $500 million dollars.

These projects can be public / private / housing. New-(not existing) streets, sidewalks, roads, bridges, highways and interstates. Pipelines that carry water, liquid waste material, etc… Other projects include hotels, commercial space, industrial development projects such as stores, warehouses, factories. Wind and solar farms. Agricultural and livestock farming.

Childcare centers, grocery stores, big box retail, shopping centers and plaza areas. Hospitals and clinics. Conservation, preservation and disaster relief projects--for animals, plants and people. Projects for preventing wildfires, floods, earthquakes, etc…Or facilities to handle flooding, droughts, irrigation, storage / containment of water, waste, electrical energy, etc…

Our SBS / FTP program is $1 trillion dollars less than the President's current BBB plan. And is expected / projected to create more than 2 million / newer and higher paying and permanent jobs across the country. SBS / FTP can also be scaled up and or extended--if necessary.

Mr. President, (including staff) please reach out to congressman Cleaver II. He has a copy of the proposal. If not,reach out to me here and I will email it to you. This goes for any White House staffer who may want to pass it onto the President.
