In the News: ‘Soviet-Style Propaganda’: Republicans Rip Biden White House for Redefining ‘Recession’ amid Economic Contraction


Republican officials in the House and Senate ripped into the Biden administration after it attempted to redefine what constitutes a recession while concerns mount about a significant decline in economic activity this year.

On Thursday, ahead of a potentially negative GDP report expected later this week — the annualized economic growth rate shrank by 1.6% in the first quarter of this year and appears to have contracted even more in the second — a White House blog post attempted to redefine the term “recession.”

In the News: The truths the Jan. 6 committee will never uncover
 The Washington Times

Congressional investigations are designed to root out the waste, fraud and abuse of taxpayer dollars as well as provide transparency on important issues for the American people. And there’s widespread agreement that the most effective oversight committees in history have been honest, bipartisan and fair.

By now the American people know that the House Jan. 6 select committee is none of these things; in fact, it’s the exact opposite.
