    Rep. Thomas Massie Taunts Pelosi: ‘Arrest My Entire Staff. We Are Not Wearing Masks’

    Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) on Thursday condemned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) new rule that House office staffers and members must wear masks at all times at work under pain of imprisonment.

    “This is INSANE. Might as well come into my office and arrest my entire staff. We are not wearing masks. I support the Capitol Hill Police, but the Chief of Police made a mistake here. The physician and the chief of police don’t have this authority,” Massie tweeted Thursday:

    Pelosi’s memo states the new rules result from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommended guidance on Tuesday.

    “All USCP personnel must wear a mask at all times when in interior spaces throughout the Capitol grounds,” the memo reads.

    The memo goes on to explain that any House staffer or member who does not wear a mask shall be reported to the House sergeant of arms, who could arrest any maskless individuals.

    Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) tweeted in response, “I am directing my Hill staff to work from home today. No one should be arrested over a mask. We should follow the science not Speaker Pelosi.”

    “To be clear: Pelosi is directing police to ARREST vaccinated people who aren’t wearing masks. This isn’t about science—it’s about power and control,” Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) tweeted.
    According to government's own numbers, over half a MILLION people are dead, just in the US alone, because of a man made virus designed to be even more deadly than what would be found in nature, released, possibly on purpose, from a Chinese lab, a virus that that was created from funding and prior research given to the Chinese scientists by our own government because we, in fit of sanity, pulled the plug on funding here.

    If the entire GOP made a stand here, Pelosi would lose and look foolish. She can't arrest half of congress.

    Dozens of House Republicans, staffers march maskless to Senate floor to protest mask mandate

    Dozens of House Republicans and their staffers marched maskless out of the House to the Senate floor in protest of the new mask mandate for the lower chamber.

    The lawmakers and their staffers traveled across the Capitol on Thursday to protest the fact that Capitol Police have instructed officers to arrest staffers and visitors who don’t wear masks and refuse to leave the House.

    Prior to the migration, Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, motioned to adjourn the House in protest against the mandate that Republicans have said came down from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

    Roy was joined by around 50 of his House colleagues, including Reps. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., Kat Cammack, R-Fla., and Byron Donalds, R-Fla.

    “Congressman Roy said it succinctly on the House floor Wednesday: ‘We have a crisis at our border and we’re playing footsie with mask mandates in the people’s house,’” a Roy spokesperson told Fox News in an email.

    “The fact that Speaker Pelosi is willing to have vaccinated staffers arrested for not complying with her mask mandate while the border remains wide open tells you all you need to know,” they continued. “This isn’t about science. It’s about politics and control.”

    Cawthorn told Fox News in a Thursday statement that the Republicans who left the House chamber to protest the mask mandate “took a firm stance on individual liberty.”

    “Along with the majority of Americans, we rejected the totalitarian, hypocritical, and arbitrary ruling from Speaker Pelosi demanding masks be worn in the House,” Cawthorn said. “My staff should never fear arrest because they practice individual responsibility.”

    The North Carolina congressman’s communications director Micah Bock told Fox News on Thursday that he was stopped by a Capitol Police officer and prevented from entering the Cannon House Office Building for not wearing a mask.

    Bock said he was advised by the officer that he had to “wear a mask to go through security” and that what he did after he went through was his “own concern.”

    Republicans have taken aim at Pelosi for the mandate since the move by Capitol Police was announced on Thursday.

    “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill previously told Fox News. “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.”

    Capitol Police told Fox News in a Thursday email that “there is no reason it should ever come to someone being arrested.”

    “Anyone who does not follow the rules will be asked to wear a mask or leave the premises,” Capitol Police said. “The Department’s requirement for officers to wear masks is for their health and safety.”

    A similar rule has been in place before. The Constitution gives members of Congress privilege from some arrests in the Capitol, such as in cases of unlawful entry. So far, there is no such mask mandate on the Senate side.

    Washington, D.C. announced it will restart its indoor mask mandate on Saturday to reflect federal guidelines.

    They just need to have a vote to make masks illegal and then pass it.

    This could simplify things and may even get GOP out of current mess.
    I'd vote for him if he won a primary no problem. But I don't think he has the national profile to be the candidate. I really think DeSantis is the savior for the GOP at this point.

    Agreed, don't think he'll win primary.

    He's raising his profile as "America First" and has held his cabinet meeting in Israel already, so he's got a strong chance on paper.
    Unless MAGA strikes back and makes a "Rubio" out of him in time ahead... which is quite probable also.
