    Democrats’ Reconciliation Bill Will Cost Taxpayers $5.5 Trillion, Sen. Lummis Says

    Democrats’ Reconciliation Bill Will Cost Taxpayers $5.5 Trillion, Sen. Lummis Says

    Democrats are trying to push both a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and a $3.5 trillion reconciliation package through Congress. 
    While the former provides funding for traditional infrastructure, such as roads and bridges, the larger latter package provides trillions of dollars for a laundry list of left-wing priorities, Sen. Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo., says. 
    “They have fudged on other numbers within it, so it's probably more like [a] $5.5 trillion [bill],” Lummis says of the larger spending package. “It is the Green New Deal. It is new entitlement programs, and it really is a terrifying, inflation-causing, big government-motivated spending bill.”
    If the American government does not stop spending at such a rampant pace, the “best-case scenario is that our dollars will go less far,” Lummis says, adding that the “worst-case scenario is that we put the dollar at risk as the world reserve currency.” 
    Lummis joins the show to explain what you need to know about the two spending bills. She also share a bit about her journey to public office and what it’s like to be the first female senator from Wyoming. 
    Also on today's show, Doug Blair talks with Tom Jones, co-founder of American Accountability Foundation. They discuss President Biden's radical cabinet nominees and wasteful government spending.

    Kayleigh McEnany’s ‘Faith Journey’ From White House Intern to Trump’s Press Secretary —

    Kayleigh McEnany’s ‘Faith Journey’ From White House Intern to Trump’s Press Secretary —

    What would it be like to go from being an intern at the White House to being White House press secretary?
    Kayleigh McEnany, the fourth and final press secretary to President Donald Trump, experienced that unlikely journey. She joins me today on "The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss that passage as well as her forthcoming book "For Such a Time as This: My Faith Journey Through the White House and Beyond.”
    "It was surreal," McEnany says of working for the president.
    "My first time in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room was as an intern for [President George W.] Bush, as you noted," she says. "Dana Perino was the press secretary, so I watched her go back and forth with the Fox correspondent, ended up interning at Fox, and [then] doing several internships."
    "But then, about 10 years later, I was standing at the podium myself, which was surreal, amazing. And I know it was only made possible because Christ had that path for my life even when I couldn't see it."
    We also cover these stories on the podcast:
    A House select committee holds its first hearing looking into the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. The panel includes seven Democrats but only two Republicans—Reps. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Liz Cheney of Wyoming. President Joe Biden releases a 21-point immigration-reform plan as the crisis at the southern border intensifies.Biden meets with Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., to discuss how to move forward the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill.

    'Mainstream Media Doesn't Represent Mainstream America,' Babylon Bee CEO Says

    'Mainstream Media Doesn't Represent Mainstream America,' Babylon Bee CEO Says

    The so-called mainstream media has lost touch with real America, says Seth Dillon, CEO of The Babylon Bee, a Christian website that specializes in satire.
    "Whatever you want to call it, the mainstream media doesn't, really represent mainstream America, so I do think that's a misnomer," Dillion says, adding:
    It comes out in a lot of the conflicts that we have. Like when The New York Times is criticizing us, they're actually using misinformation to smear us as being a source of misinformation. It's all projection that everything that they accused us of doing, they're actually doing themselves. So I think they are probably doing more damage than almost anyone else to this country, just by manipulating the truth and acting like they're the arbiters of the truth.Dillon joins me for a bonus episode of "The Daily Signal Podcast" recorded at Turning Point USA's seventh annual Student Action Summit in Rampa, Florida.

    Vaccine Mandates Are ‘What A Tyranny Would Do,’ Arizona Lawmaker Says

    Vaccine Mandates Are ‘What A Tyranny Would Do,’ Arizona Lawmaker Says

    Rep. Andy Biggs says vaccine mandates are a direct violation of Americans' personal freedoms.
    "It's what a tyranny would do. It's what an authoritarian government would do," the Arizona Republican told The Daily Signal, adding:

    And when [White House press secretary Jen Psaki] said that [community outreach] targeted neighborhoods, and President [Joe] Biden implied it was targeted, it made me think, maybe they have a database, right? So, if they've got a database, where are they getting that information? How is that information coming to them?Are they violating [Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act] laws? What is going on with it?I actually wrote a letter to the president asking him these things, which we've heard nothing back on. But I view it as a tremendous violation of our rights to privacy.

    Mom Files Lawsuit After Teacher Tells Third Grader She Can’t Wear ‘Jesus Loves Me’ Mask

    Mom Files Lawsuit After Teacher Tells Third Grader She Can’t Wear ‘Jesus Loves Me’ Mask

    Mississippi mother Jennifer Booth was surprised when her 9-year-old daughter Lydia Booth came home from school and told her that she was not allowed to wear her “Jesus Loves Me” face mask anymore. 
    Thinking her daughter’s teacher might simply have been having a bad day, Booth sent Lydia back to school with her mask. Again, the third grader was told she was not allowed to wear the mask at school. 
    "The principal calls me and she's like, 'We're going to have to have Lydia swap her mask out,'" Booth recounts, adding that the principal said it was against school policy "to have religious symbols or gestures on her mask." But upon inspecting the school handbook with the principal, Booth says, the only policy the principal could point to referred to "drug culture, profanity, [and] obscenities."
    Booth continued to contact leaders of the Simpson County School District asking for an explanation and was eventually sent the district’s COVID-19 policy. But after a little investigation, Booth discovered that the policy she received had been modified less than an hour before it was emailed to her to include language barring student’s from wearing masks expressing religious views. 
    Booth has filed a lawsuit against the school district with Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal organization. 
    The mom says she chose to take legal action to protect her "kids, my grandkids, and everybody else's kids, because this year is the mask, next year is the T-shirt, eventually you can't say Jesus's name in school."
    Booth and Alliance Defending Freedom lawyer Tyson Langhofer join "The Daily Signal Podcast" to tell this story and discuss why they are taking a stand for religious liberty in Mississippi. 
    Also on today’s show, we read your letters to the editor and share a good news story about a father and son who used their knowledge of the sea to find and rescue a man overboard off the coast of North Carolina.

    How This Pastor Resisted Government to Keep His Church Open During COVID-19

    How This Pastor Resisted Government to Keep His Church Open During COVID-19

    Churches, synagogues, and other places of worship faced extraordinary challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in liberal states such as California.
    Rob McCoy, senior pastor of Godspeak Calvary Chapel of Thousand Oaks in California, joins a bonus episode of "The Daily Signal Podcast" to talk about he kept his church open during COVID-19 amid the restraints imposed by the state government led by Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat.
    "When COVID came out, and the governor declared that the church is not essential and wouldn't allow us to do Communion during our Holy Week, [from] Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, I refused to adhere to that," McCoy says, adding:

    So we followed [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] standards, we did Communion service, and I resigned from my [Thousand Oaks City] Council seat because I knew they'd have to censure me and they weren't going to uphold their oath of office to the Constitution.And we did Communion. And then ... the riots happened in LA, where 75% of the businesses that were burned and looted were Jewish-owned and targeted. And the governor embraced it, shoulder to shoulder, no masks. We realized then, now knowing the data, [and] we opened the church wide on May 31. And then in August, we didn't have a single case of COVID.

Should journalism express a point of view?

It’s hard to tell if The Daily Signal is journalism or satire.
