Republican House Oversight Committee disbands Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties

Source: The Hill

The Republican-controlled House Oversight and Accountability Committee has disbanded the Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, which focused on issues including voting rights, freedom of assembly and criminal justice reform policies.

In a committee meeting on Tuesday, Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) said this doesn’t mean topics related to these issues can’t be brought before the committee.

“Let me be very clear: any topic that’s not mentioned in the subcommittee jurisdiction is reserved for the full committee,” Comer said. “We can have a committee hearing in this committee on basically anything we want.”

A spokesperson for the panel told The Hill that “Oversight Republicans are realigning subcommittees to ensure the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of the federal government and all its agencies. Going forward, subcommittees will now be better equipped to meet our mission, identify problems, and propose meaningful legislative reforms for the American people.”

4. Well, makes perfect sense.....

If there's not going to be any civil liberties, then there's no need for a subcommittee on civil liberties....


(do I need the sarcasm thingie here, or is this serious?)

6. Of course they did

This is 2023. We don’t need no stinkin committees to investigate civil rights and civil liberties. There are no problems in those areas in this country. The clusterfuck rolls on.

11. First thing they did in 2017 was start dismantling the Federal government...

Now in 2023 they're continuing that work.

This is consistent.

13. What's scary is that any ascension of Ron DeSatan to high office dovetails here with Comer's plans.

Posted on another site is DeSatan's plan to de-fund any and all FL schools of funding of any 'woke' studies unless all such programs at all levels are eliminated. As if FL, next to last in teacher pay, needs any more teachers to flee the profession!

I do think he's far over-reached, just like the attacks on Disney, and the political pendulum will start to swing the other way. This will take time. One thing: as a FL resident now, I see/hear a lot about him. He has near zero charisma and fails badly at bringing in other R politicians to his fold. The media here has well noted his failure to build a coalition of fellow R's, unusual in either party. I believe this weakness (he only wants the spotlight on himself and disdains any fellow R from that light) will kill his ability to win the presidency.
