Here Are A Dozen WOKE Horrors In Massive Omnibus Plunder, Geller Report, 23 December 2022:

The omnibus spending bill is loaded with thousands of earmarks , which are line-item funding for specific pet projects directed by members of Congress. Many of these earmarks would advance the Left’s extreme agenda and fund its institutions using the taxpayer’s money. House Appropriations Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., bragged that the omnibus “fulfills 98% of Democratic member requests in the House, with $5.4 billion for 3,213 Democratic projects.”

The types of woke-waste line items that some Senate Republicans will help fund, unless they change their minds, include these 12 projects:

  1.     $1.2 million for “ LGBTQIA+ Pride Centers ” and another $1.2 million for “ support services for DACA recipients ” (aka helping illegal aliens with taxpayer funds) at San Diego Community College.
  2.     $477,000 for the  Equity Institute  in Rhode Island to indoctrinate teachers with “antiracism virtual labs.”
  3.     $1 million for  Zora’s House  in Ohio, a “coworking and community space” for “women and gender-expansive people of color.”
  4.     $3 million for the  American LGBTQ+ Museum  in New York City.
  5.     $3.6 million for a  Michelle Obama Trail  in Georgia.
  6.     $750,000 for “ LGBT and Gender Non-Conforming housing ” in Albany, New York.
  7.     $2 million for the “ Great Blacks in Wax ” museum in Baltimore.
  8.     $856,000 for an “ LGBT Center ” in New York.
  9.     $750,000 for the “ TransLatin@ Coalition ” to provide “workforce development programs and supportive services for Transgender and Gender nonconforming and Intersex (TGI) immigrant women in Los Angeles.”
  10.     $2 million for “ MLK Labor ” in Washington, an affiliate of the AFL-CIO that  expelled Seattle police officers  from union ranks.
  11.     $956,000 for “ The Equity Incubator at the Universities at Shady Grove ” in Maryland.
  12.     $791,200 for “ equitable energy resilience and EV infrastructure ” in Sonoma, California.

Omnibus Fraud, by Whitson G. Waldo, III, American Thinker, 27 December 2022:

The nefarious $1.7 trillion Omnibus spending bill was passed by progressives in both parties.

This bill funds bigger government for fiscal year 2023 through September. The bad news is that progressives seized on an initiative to eviscerate the incoming Republican House majority for half of their term. The good news is this bill should not stand because it is unconstitutional. The best news will be when something is done about that....

The House has authority to initiate spending under the Origination Clause of our Constitution which is Article 1, Section 7, Clause 1. This clause gives power to the House of Representatives to originate revenue bills and supply government. Obviously, it is a power revolving in time, coincidental with terms of office. The House, being elected politicians closest to the people because of their short term of office, has authority and responsibility to tailor government spending to best match the will of voters.

The 117th United States Congress has exceeded their authority past their term limit by usurping the authority of the 118th Congress....

If what the 117th Congress did was constitutional, then there would be nothing to prevent the 117th Congress from passing an Omnibus spending bill for fiscal year 2024, too....

The Omnibus spending bill passed by the 117th Congress for fiscal year 2023 is unconstitutional.... The first thing the incoming House Republicans should do after being sworn in is declare the Omnibus spending bill unconstitutional. Now we shall see of what substance Freedom Caucus members are made. If this isn’t a hill to die on, then there are no such hills....
