Shocking Vote Reveals True Allegiances In House As Johnson Clings To Power

In a stunning display of bipartisan unity, the House swiftly rejected Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's bid to remove Speaker Mike Johnson from his position. The chamber resoundingly voted to table Greene's measure by a 359-43 tally, with both Democrats and Republicans coming together to support Johnson's leadership. The vote came just hours after Greene announced her intention to move forward with the motion, which was met with a wave of boos from her colleagues. Despite Greene's efforts to garner support from fellow Republicans like Reps. Thomas Massie and Paul Gosar, her campaign against Johnson ultimately failed. The speaker even received a boost from former President Donald Trump, who stood with him at Mar-a-Lago and praised his performance. Greene had been threatening to use the motion to vacate against Johnson since late March, citing issues such as the passage of a $1.2 trillion spending package. However, her recent meeting with Johnson, during which she made a series of "suggestions" including defunding special counsel Jack Smith's inquiry into Trump and halting financial aid to Ukraine, failed to sway the House. Recent polling from Monmouth University revealed that only one in five Americans wanted Johnson replaced as speaker, further underscoring the lack of support for Greene's initiative.

Legislation allowing doctor-assisted suicide narrowly clears Delaware House, heads to state Senate

A bill allowing doctor-assisted suicide in Delaware has narrowly cleared the Democrat-led House and now goes to the state Senate for consideration.

DOVER, Del. -- A bill allowing doctor-assisted suicide in Delaware narrowly cleared the Democrat-led House on Thursday and now goes to the state Senate for consideration.

The bill is the latest iteration of legislation that has been repeatedly introduced by Newark Democrat Paul Baumbach since 2015, and it is the only proposal to make it to a floor vote. After lengthy debate, lawmakers voted 21-16 for the measure, which needed at least 21 affirmative votes for passage.

Among those voting for the bill was Republican Rep. Kevin Hensley of Townsend, who voted against the proposal in previous legislative sessions.

“I did not get confused,” Hensley assured fellow lawmakers after the vote. Hensley said his perspective on the issue changed after his mother, who lives in California, opted for physician-assisted suicide a year ago.

“This was probably one of the toughest votes I’ve ever had to make,” said Hensley, the only GOP lawmaker to vote for the bill.

California is one of 10 states, along with the District of Columbia, that have laws legalizing medically assisted suicide.

Several Republican lawmakers expressed ethical concerns about the Delaware legislation. They also questioned the need for it, given advances in hospice and palliative care in recent years.

Baumbach said the measures are not intended to replace palliative or hospice care, but to complement them. Data from other states indicate that hospice care is involved in the vast majority of cases involving doctor-assisted suicide, he added.

Baumbach said the “end-of-life option” offered in the bill gives terminally ill individuals certainty that they can choose to end their pain if it becomes greater than what hospice or palliative care can alleviate.

“This puts the choice in the dying person’s hands to determine whether or not they wish to self-administer the medicine,” he said.

The legislation allows an adult resident of Delaware who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness and is expected to die within six months to request lethal prescription drugs from a doctor or advanced practice registered nurse who has primary responsibility for the terminal illness. A consulting physician or nurse would have to confirm the diagnosis and prognosis of the patient, who must have “decision-making capacity.”

The patient would have to be evaluated by a psychiatrist or a psychologist if any of the medical professionals involved are concerned that he or she lacks decision-making capacity. A person also would not qualify for doctor-assisted suicide solely because of age or disability.

The patient would have to make two oral requests for a lethal prescription, followed by a written request, and would have to wait at least 15 days after the initial request before receiving the drugs. The attending doctor or nurse would have to wait at least 48 hours after the written request, which must be signed by two witnesses before prescribing the drugs.

The bill states that any provision in a contract, will, or any other agreement that would affect whether an individual could make or rescind a request for lethal prescription “is not valid.” It also states that requesting, prescribing or dispensing the lethal medication “does not, for any purpose, constitute elder abuse, suicide, assisted-suicide, homicide, or euthanasia.”

The legislation goes further to assert that the act of killing oneself with self-administered prescription medication does not invalidate any part of an insurance policy or annuity.

12:27 PM – Saturday, April 20, 2024

The House passed a series of bills to provide aid to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan along with the potential ban of TikTok.

Following a morning of deliberations on the House floor Saturday, the four bills will be combined into one and forwarded to the Senate for their approval.

After which, the package will be forwarded to President Joe Biden for his signature.

Biden praised the bill, stating he would sign the legislation if passed by the Senate.

“I want to thank Speaker Johnson, Leader Jeffries, and the bipartisan coalition of lawmakers in the House who voted to put our national security first,” Biden said in a statement following the votes. “I urge the Senate to quickly send this package to my desk so that I can sign it into law.”

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) signaled Saturday that the Senate is expected to vote on the package on Tuesday.

“I am grateful to the United States House of Representatives, both parties and personally Speaker Mike Johnson for the decision that keeps history on the right track,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in a post on X after the vote.

Additionally, on Saturday, Israeli Foreign Affairs Minister Israel Katz expressed gratitude to Johnson and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) for their assistance in approving the aid.

More than $60 billion in aid for Ukraine, more than $26 billion for Israel, and more than $8 billion for Taiwan and Indo-Pacific security are all included in the bills.

A fourth bill calls for a national ban on China’s ByteDance if the company does not sell the social media site TikTok within nine months (the president may grant a ninety-day extension).

The $95 billion version of the aid package to finance Taiwan, Israel, and Ukraine was approved by the Senate in February.

In response to Johnson’s aid plan, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) filed a motion to remove Speaker Johnson from office in March, but he hasn’t yet forced a vote on the proposal.

SEAN SPICER: MTG’s Commitment to Republican Voters

MTG is committed to delivering on the promises she made to Republican voters and her district. The Republican majority, on the other hand, has fallen apart and the actions taken do not match the promises made. Speaker Johnson waited till the government funding deadline to pass the latest $1.2 trillion bill and forced the House to vote on the 1,012 page bill in one day. Today she sits down with Sean to explain her decision to file a 'motion to vacate' Speaker Mike Johnson. MTG considers the bill a complete failure and passed under suspension, which leaves no room for making amendments. The bill was a Chuck Schumer dream come true. It contained funding for many social issues: including funding for abortion clinics up to full-term, trans agendas directed towards children, funding for DEI, funding a brand new facility for the weaponized FBI and DOJ, and to top it all off - continuing with a wide open border policy. MTG has the intestinal fortitude and the will to turn our country around from the dark road it's headed down. She has fired a warning shot at Speaker Johnson that he's on borrowed time.
