Republicans in Congress have returned from the August break full force tackling issues like left-wing activism in the justice system, Biden’s failed Iran policy, Biden’s proposed ban on gas generators, and more. 

On Thursday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., announced a hearing to probe into left-wing activism in the justice system.

The official press release stated, “This full committee hearing will investigate how left-wing activists are funding litigation against companies and agencies to achieve liberal policy goals. In addition, the hearing will examine the lack of oversight and rules of ethics to prevent these financiers from meddling in and controlling the outcome of lawsuits.”

Comer said, “These tactics are not only being used consistently to push an agenda but also seek to enable agencies to implement burdensome regulations and avoid public scrutiny. The House Oversight Committee must work to prevent financiers from hijacking America’s courtrooms, and I look forward to hearing from witnesses on how Congress can also address these litigation schemes to protect industry and consumers.”

The Subcommittee on National Security, the Border, and Foreign Affairs Chairman Rep. Glenn Grothman, R-Wis., also announced a hearing regarding Biden’s failed Iran policies noting on X, “The Biden Admin has repeatedly engaged in secret negotiations with Iran, ignoring the emerging threats arising from Iran & its proxies.”

According to the press release, Grothman said, “The Biden administration’s foreign policy decisions regarding Iran continue to defy logic and are actively making Americans less safe at home and abroad. Despite promises, the Biden administration has failed to deliver transparency throughout negotiations of Iran’s nuclear arsenal program and in its murky decision to dismiss high-level U.S. envoys.”

“Recently, the White House announced negotiations with Tehran regarding the detainment of five American citizens. In return, the Administration is expected to release $6 billion in Iranian assets, or $1.2 billion per person, incentivizing Iran to detain more Americans in return for cash,” he added.

In addition, Comer has teamed up with Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Energy Policy, and Regulatory Affairs member Rep. Pat Fallon, R-Texas, in acknowledging Biden’s plan to “overregulate gas appliances and products out of existence.”

They noted that new portable engine generator rules violate “CPSC authority under the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA).” The congressmen are also investigating how this could affect manufacturing costs and productivity. 

This is on top of the ongoing Biden family crimes investigation, which revealed evidence on Wednesday that “Joe Biden’s VP staff colluded with Hunter’s business partner on Burisma corruption media response.”
