House Dems Address Economic Recession By Declaring War on Modern Sporting Rifles
Matt Vespa / Townhall Tipsheet
It seemed like the Uvalde shooting was no longer a cause for action for Democrats. They were struggling to get the votes for a new assault weapons ban. After weeks of demanding something be done in the wake of that awful shooting, it looked like the Democrats were resigned to defeat. Why? Well, the last ounces of political exploitation over this tragedy got milked. Democrats face destruction in the 2022 midterms. We’re in a recession. It’s time for Democrats to start stacking sandbags. Even more pathetic is that at the time, the two wings of the Democratic Party couldn’t compromise on this anti-gun provision and funding for more police (via The Reload):
There will not be a House vote on the “assault weapons” ban this month.

Democrats failed to come to a compromise on how to move forward with both the ban and a police funding initiative on Wednesday. Instead of being scheduled for a vote by the end of this week, they have pushed both bills past the August recess. Read more here.

Small business groups rip Manchin, Schumer deal: 'Misery for many more Americans'
The Inflation Reduction Act will 'hurt local economies and workers,' Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council President Karen Kerrigan tells FOX Business
Groups representing small business interests slammed a deal announced Wednesday by Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., saying it would increase inflation and hurt employment. 

The groups argued that the agreement, titled the Inflation Reduction Act, will increase pressure on small businesses that have already struggled to stay afloat amid record-high prices and slowing economic growth. 

The legislation was unveiled after weeks of negotiations between Manchin and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., who said it would guarantee corporations and the wealthy "pay their fair share." 

"We all know that taxes roll downhill," Alfredo Ortiz, president of the Job Creators Network, told FOX Business in an interview. "So, it's either going to be an increase in cost and, ultimately, in prices to the consumer, which is inflationary, or it's going to be a job killer. At the end of the day, you have a few levers to pull." Read more and see videos here.

Even Democrats Are Tired of Biden's Border Crisis
Sarah Arnold / Townhall Tipsheet

The Biden administration has given the green light to pick up building a section of former President Trump's border wall as illegal immigration sees no point in slowing down. 

President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security finally caved and agreed to close the border barrier gaps in Arizona that pose many security challenges for Border patrol. 

"After many months of pushing," Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz) announced the first step to fixing the crisis at the southern border along his state lines has been secured. 

You know things are bad when even a Democrat is calling on his own party to do something that shouldn't have been a problem in the first place.

US economy enters technical recession after growth tumbles 0.9% in the second quarter
Megan Henney / FOXBusiness

The U.S. economy shrank in the spring for the second consecutive quarter, meeting the criteria for a so-called technical recession, as raging inflation and higher interest rates forced consumers and businesses to pull back on spending. 

Gross domestic product, the broadest measure of goods and services produced across the economy, shrank by 0.9% on an annualized basis in the three-month period from April through June, the Commerce Department said in its first reading of the data on Thursday. Refinitiv economists expected the report to show the economy had expanded by 0.5%. 

Economic output already fell over the first three months of the year, with GDP tumbling 1.6%, the worst performance since the spring of 2020, when the economy was still deep in the throes of the COVID-induced recession. Read more and see video here.

It's official...RECESSION!...two consecutive quarters of negative growth. 
Real GDP dropped another .9% Thanks Joe.🤬

Please Remind Joe That He's Speaking to China's President Today, Not the Local Carry-Out 
Matt Vespa / Townhall Tipsheet

We’ll all need some opiates today. The GDP report expects to show that we’ve experienced two consecutive quarters of economic contraction. That’s a recession. Joe Biden’s team has deployed the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ protocol by denying we’re in the financial toilet. That’s the go-to for liberals when something doesn’t go their way; just deny it exists. As many have said for years, liberalism is a mental disorder. As the Biden White House deploys countermeasures and spin, which will fail, we must also look to another critical issue today: China.

China recently fired a warning by demanding we halt the latest arms shipment to Taiwan. Joe Biden caved to such threats and urged Speaker Nancy Pelosi to postpone her trip. Congressional Republicans and Democrats told Joe to shove it on that one. If all goes wrong, and by recent history, it should be nothing short of a disaster, the nation suffered a one-two punch today.

217 Democrats Just Went On-Record Saying They Don’t Support Border Patrol Agents                                           Spencer Brown – Townhall Tipsheet

Democrats in the House of Representatives took both their opposition to law enforcement and their support for a lawless border to a new low on Tuesday evening when they blocked consideration of a mere resolution expressing Congress’ support for the heroic border patrol agents who are fighting to keep America safe — despite the chaos caused by Biden’s border crisis and baseless smears from his administration.

The resolution from GOP congressman Michael Guest of Mississippi is simple:

Expressing continued support for all U.S. Border Patrol agents who carry out the important mission of securing our borders.

The resolution goes on to explain the baseless smear of border agents that the Biden administration and Democrats engaged in against the agents accused of whipping illegal immigrants crossing into the U.S. via the Rio Grande without…Read more here.

China targeted Federal Reserve employees in an attempt to undermine American monetary policy: Senate report
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said he is 'troubled' by the report's 'unfair, unsubstantiated and unverified insinuations'
The Chinese government has targeted the Federal Reserve in an effort to undermine American monetary policy since at least 2013, according to a report released Tuesday by Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee. 

The report detailed the actions of several Federal Reserve employees known as the "P-Network," whose foreign travel patterns and academic backgrounds raised concerns internally. 

One of these employees was detained four times during a 2019 trip to Shanghai as Chinese officials "threatened the individual’s family unless the individual provided them with economic information and assistance." 

Other Federal Reserve employees also had "close ties" to the People’s Bank of China, Chinese academic organizations, and the state-owned Xinhua News Agency, according to the report. Read more and see video here.

Whistleblowers: FBI/DOJ Deep State Working Overtime to Protect Hunter Biden
Matt Vespa / Townhall Tipsheet
Let me just say I am shocked CBS News allowed this to be published. It’s from former Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge. It’s about something we all know well in the DC swamp. The Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are out of control. They worked hard to hamstring Donald Trump. They spied on his campaign in 2016 through Crossfire Hurricane. And they worked on manufacturing evidence to prop up a bogus story about the Kremlin tilting the election in Trump’s favor. The Russian collusion was a total myth. Then-FBI Director James Comey knew that it was a myth. He had to have known. He knew the Trump dossier was a Hillary Clinton campaign-funded opposition research project compiled by ex-MI6 spook Christopher Steele. Still, they went along with it. DOJ officials doctored evidence to secure FISA spy warrants on specific Trump campaign officials, like Carter Page.

Now, the FBI is running amok again with Hunter Biden stories. Whistleblowers have been coming out of the woodwork to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), alleging…Read more here.

DOUBLING DOWN: Joe Biden Peddles Administration's Talking Points on Not Seeing a Recession
Rebecca Downs / Townhall Tipsheet
On Monday afternoon, President Joe Biden took questions from the press, including from Fox News' Peter Doocy, in pointing out that GDP numbers will be coming in on Thursday, asked "how worried should Americans be that we could be in a recession." With a smile on his face as Doocy asked his question, Biden doubled down on his administration's talking points by claiming he doesn't think we will be in a recession.

"We're not gonna be in a recession in my way," Biden claimed. "We, uh, the unemployment rate is still one of the lowest we've had in human history, it's in the 3.6 [percent] area, uh, we still find ourselves with people investing. Uh, my hope is that we go from this rapid growth to a steady growth, and, uh, so we'll see some coming down. But I don't think we're going to, uh, God willing, I don't think we're going to see a recession." 

This has been a consistent narrative from the White House, as it has sought to change the definition of what a recession is, which is typically thought of as two quarters of negative GDP growth. Read more and see videos and tweets here.

The Jaw-Dropping Number of Illegal Immigrant ‘Got Aways’ Under Biden’s Watch 
Julio Rosas – Townhall Tipsheet
With the Biden administration’s open border policies in full swing, the number of illegal immigrant “got aways” has escalated further. On Monday, the number of people who were known to illegally enter the country but were not intercepted by law enforcement was unveiled to be over 500,000.

Known as “got aways,” sources within the Department of Homeland Security told different reporters about the drastic increase of “got aways” this fiscal year. 

Since fiscal year 2021, which was marked by the start of the Biden presidency, there have been close to one million known “got aways.” Law enforcement agencies at the southern stress these numbers are only the ones who are known to have been able to avoid apprehension and the real number of “got aways” are estimated to be much higher. Because they are not intercepted by law enforcement, it is hard to say definitively who has been able to get away since Border Patrol agents have been bogged…Read more here.

White House says a second consecutive quarter of negative GDP 'unlikely' to be indicative of recession
A Republican National Committee spokesperson said that this further underscores how 'out of touch' President Biden is with Americans
The White House Council of Economic Advisers said on July 21 that even if Friday's advance estimate of the country's GDP is negative, it's still "unlikely" to be indicative that the country is in a recession.

Recessions refer to two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth.

In a blog post, the council of economic advisers says that two consecutive quarters of falling GDP doesn't mean the country is in a recession.

"What is a recession? While some maintain that two consecutive quarters of falling real GDP constitute a recession, that is neither the official definition nor the way economists evaluate the state of the business cycle," the blog post states.

Citing figures from the National Bureau of Economic Research, the post states that their "recession indicator variables" have "exhibited strong growth in the U.S. economy since the start of the pandemic, and have continued to expand through the first half of this year."

Even if the Bureau of Economic Analysis' advance estimate of the second quarter GDP shows a negative number, the blog post says the country is likely not in a recession. Read more and see video here.

Decertify Biden’s 2020 victory, says Wisconsin Assembly election committee leader                      Daniel Chaitin / Washington Examiner

Support in Wisconsin’s State Assembly for decertifying President Joe Biden’s 2020 win in the state is growing more than 20 months after the contest.

Election committee leader Janel Brandtjen, a Republican endorsed by former President Donald Trump, released a statement on Friday prompting a rebuke from the legislator’s counterpart in the state Senate.

“Fair and honest elections are the cornerstone of our democracy and we know that the 2020 presidential election was neither fair, nor transparent,” Brandtjen said in a news release posted on Facebook. “Tyranny is at Wisconsin’s door.”

Brandtjen said she would join fellow state Rep. Tim Ramthun, a Republican candidate for governor, in pushing to overturn the last presidential election and dismissed the naysayers. “We have been told for months now that decertification is impossible, meaning there is no downside to cheating in Wisconsin elections,” Brandtjen said. “How many more times do we need to endure this election injustice?” Read more here.
