REP. JIM JORDAN ON BIDEN MASK SURRENDER: ‘WORST START TO ANY ADMINISTRATION IN HISTORY’
July 27, 2021
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview Tuesday that President Joe Biden’s mask mandate surrender represents the latest instance of Biden’s “worst start of any administration in history.”
Jordan, the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee and House Freedom Caucus cofounder, spoke to Breitbart News after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that they will recommend Americans, even fully vaccinated people, should wear masks indoors again in places with high coronavirus infection rates.
This stands as a stark reversal of the CDC’s decision to lift the national mask mandates in May, in which Biden declared that his administration had made substantial progress on fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
Jordan told Breitbart News that this serves as the latest instance of Biden’s faltering administration seven months into his four-year term. The Ohio conservative explained that Dr. Anthony Fauci and the Biden administration have continually shifted their stance on if masks effectively guard against the coronavirus and if the federal government funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Jordan explained, “Fauci initially said a year and a half ago when this thing started, he initially said, no need for a mask, and as then he said, wear one mask. And then he said, No, wear two masks, then it went back to one mask, and then it was back to no mask. Now, he’s saying wear a mask again. So you know so much for the old cliche, so much for trusting the science. … they can’t keep changing their story.”
He continued, “Think about this, Fauci changed his opinion [a lot]; I got five statements from Fauci on the origins, that we never funded the Wuhan instead of Virology. And he said, ‘oh, yeah, we funded it. But, it was a sub-grant through, you know, EcoHealth.’ Then he said, ‘no, we funded it. But, we didn’t do gain of function research there.’ And then this weekend, he said, ‘Well, we funded it, there was a gain of function research, but it was a sound scientific decision.’ And finally, he said, ‘it would have been negligent not to fund the lab in China.’ So he went from we never funded it to it’d be negligent. So this is Fauci and the Biden administration just all over the place. And it shouldn’t surprise us.”
Jordan said the Biden mask surrender serves as the latest crisis during the Biden administration, including a crime wave across the country, a porous border with endless migrants crossing into the United States, and rising inflation.
“I think everything hurts his favorability, and the American people are smart. They see that this is the worst start to any administration in history. Twelve people killed in Chicago — murdered,” Jordan said. “So, crime is up everywhere. You got a border crisis … I mean, the border crisis out of control. So, it was looking like March was the highest month on record for illegal crossings until April, and April was the highest month on record until May, and then there was the highest month on record until June. So that’s what you call a bad trend. So, you know, Americans see that they see the price of everything.”
“And, frankly, Republicans lots of independents, see this relentless attack on President Trump. So I think his numbers are gonna continue to go down; it’s just the nature of being having a bad start to your presidency,” Jordan added.
For any Republicans lots of independents to talk about any attacks on anyone is the pot calling the kettle black. If Trump had won which all Republicans think he did, liars all with the election fraud BS, no proof, no evidence, no collusion as they all say when there back is against the wall, and questions our freedoms of voting in the country. They are trying to undermine all the citizens of the US OF A. My grandfather didn’t fight in WWII at Pearl Harbor for these people to do this to AMERICA’S elections. They’re now trying to use voter intimidation & suppression unsubstantiated.
Why is this important?
Ohio’s 4th congressional district representative Jim Jordan was the guest speaker for the Lima Rotary Club’s weekly meeting, answering questions about and discussing different issues that are going on right now.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), along with 9 cosponsors, introduced Articles of Impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
The impeachment articles come as evidence continues to mount regarding the Department of Justice's problematic decision-making during the 2016 campaign and conduct surrounding the transition to President Trump's administration in 2017. The impeachment articles are the result of nearly 9 months of unsuccessful congressional attempts to force the Department of Justice (DOJ) to comply with oversight requests.
The failures cited within the articles include intentionally withholding embarrassing documents and information, knowingly hiding material investigative information from Congress, various abuses of the FISA process, and failure to comply with congressional subpoenas, among others.
Rep. Jim Jordan released the following statement:
"The DOJ is keeping information from Congress. Enough is enough. It's time to hold Mr. Rosenstein accountable for blocking Congress's constitutional oversight role."
"With Attorney General Sessions' recusal, Rod Rosenstein has been in charge of the Department of Justice as the agency has made every effort to obstruct legitimate attempts of Congressional oversight. The stonewalling over this last year has been just as bad or worse than under the Obama administration. Multiple times we've caught DOJ officials hiding information from Congress, withholding relevant documents, or even outright ignoring Congressional subpoenas—and now we have evidence that Mr. Rosenstein signed off on a document using unverified political opposition research as a cornerstone of a FISA application to spy on an American citizen working for the Trump campaign. This level of conduct, paired with the failure to even feign an interest in transparency, is reprehensible. And whether you're a Republican or a Democrat, this kind of obstruction is wrong—period.
For 9 months we've warned them consequences were coming, and for 9 months we've heard the same excuses backed up by the same unacceptable conduct. Time is up and the consequences are here. It's time to find a new Deputy Attorney General who is serious about accountability and transparency."
Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), Ranking Member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, released a staff report critical of Chairman Cummings's use of Committee resources to interfere with the ongoing litigation over the citizenship question before the Supreme Court.
During a business meeting today, the Committee will consider Chairman Cummings's request for subpoenas as part of his partisan and political investigation into the Commerce Department's reinstatement of the citizenship question on the census.
Read the full report here and the appendices to the report here.
Democrats are seeking the same information at issue in the Supreme Court litigation. Chairman Cummings is using the authority of the Committee to gather documentary and testimonial evidence at the heart of the Supreme Court case. One Democrat Member of the Committee even proclaimed that the Committee's oversight was intended to "reveal something that the courts can use" in the litigation. The decision to hold hearings on matters currently involved in litigation carries the potential to jeopardize the impartiality of judicial proceedings.
Democrats should not interfere with ongoing litigation, especially at the Supreme Court. When Chairman Cummings was in the minority, he argued against interfering with ongoing litigation. Outside experts agree that Chairman Cummings should not force Secretary Ross to disclose information at issue in the Supreme Court litigation.
This man should have better things to worry about besides who is doing there congressional duty to certify election votes and tallies. A man was trying to do his job just like Vice President Pence was trying to do on 1/6/2021 along with Speaker of the House Pelosi & the rest of the responsible members of Congress.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) tweeted more anti-vaxxer talking points on Tuesday and received a swift reminder of his own history in response.
