Republican Reps. Bill Huizenga and Alex Mooney introduced H.R. 263, the Stop Trying to Obsessively Vilify Energy (STOVE) Act. The bill seeks to 'prohibit any rule or guidance that bans gas stoves in the United States.'

The Biden administration is not planning to ban gas stoves, but comments from a commissioner on the CPSC about gas stoves being a “hidden hazard” and that “products that can’t be made safe can be banned” provided just enough fuel to stoke fear and outrage. Read more»

A woman holds paperwork, while standing in line at the Morley pedestrian crossing in Nogales, Son.

President Joe Biden, who made his first visit as president to the southern border, and Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, offered competing versions of who’s to blame for a spike in illegal immigration - but both twisted some facts to fit their partisan narratives. Read more»

The House Select Committee to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol lasted over a year and a half and conducted more than 1,000 interviews.

After a year and a half, the House Select Committee to Investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol released a 154-page summary of its final report that concludes former President Donald Trump was responsible for a “multi-part plan to overturn the 2020 Presidential election.” Read more»

The Supreme Court has not weighed in on whether Trump could unilaterally ignore past executive orders on declassification procedures.

Former President Donald Trump's statement claiming he had a standing order that documents removed from the Oval Office and taken to his residence were deemed to be declassified isn't plausible - and may be irrelevant to his criminal investigation. Read more»

Dinesh D'Souza speaking at CPAC 2012.

The supposed evidence in ‘2000 Mules’, a conservative film now playing in select theaters around the country, is speculative and does not provide “determinative, definitive” proof of widespread voter fraud, as former President Donald Trump has claimed. Read more»

Sen. Tom Cotton speaks to Navy Vice Adm. Michael M. Gilday, director of the Joint Staff, on July 31, 2019.

Sen. Tom Cotton falsely equated the nearly 2 million apprehensions of immigrants during Joe Biden’s presidency to “adding the entire population of Nebraska to this country.” He’s wrong for several reasons, including that most of those apprehended were immediately turned around. Read more»

Former President Donald Trump, shown at a North Carolina event in 2020.

At a rally in Arizona on Jan. 15, former President Donald Trump waded into the debate over state policies allowing health systems to consider race as a risk factor when prioritizing the allocation of limited supplies of some COVID-19 therapeutics. Read more»

Chevy Bolt is one of two cars that would receive a full tax credit under Biden's Build Back Better plan, though all EV's would get some incentive.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham wrongly implied only two cars would be eligible for a Build Back Better electric vehicle tax credit. He was right that part of the proposed incentive is for union jobs only. Read more»

Asylum-seekers at the Kino Border Initiative in Nogales, Sonora.

Experts say low vaccination rates, resistance to protective measures and the Delta variant are driving the surge of COVID-19 cases - but many Americans, particularly the unvaccinated and Republicans, believe immigrants are “a major reason for the current high number of cases.” Read more»

Those with very high incomes, specifically the less than 1% of Americans making over $1 million per year, would bear the majority of the tax increases. Those people could, on average, see tax increases in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Ads from the conservative Club for Growth targeting nine vulnerable Democrats and one Republican in the House distort the impact of the Biden plan on taxpayers, warning that the plan “could cost your family” thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars. It could, but it probably won’t. Read more»

Army Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, briefs the media on Afghanistan, the Pentagon, Washington, D.C., Aug. 18, 2021.

Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair Gen. Mark Milley and Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, commander of U.S. Central Command, contradicted President Joe Biden’s claim last month that top military advisers didn’t recommend keeping a residual force in Afghanistan. Read more»

People line up to board a U.S. transport plane during the evacuation of civilians from Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, after the Taliban’s lightning-fast takeover of the country as coalition forces withdraw.

The Taliban seized an arsenal of U.S.-made military equipment, but not the grossly exaggerated figure of $85 billion worth of equipment numerous Republicans have claimed - that figure is the total amount spent on the Afghanistan Security Forces Fund since the war began in 2001. Read more»

In 2020, about 9.8% of U.S. petroleum imports (most of it crude oil) came from Persian Gulf countries, according to the EIA. That has dropped to an average of about 6.6% through the first five months of 2021.

Although former President Donald Trump and Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert have both made claims that America is back to relying on the Middle East for energy, the United States continues a decades-long trend to import a smaller amount of its petroleum from the Middle East. Read more»

The Capitol Police plan to open the two field offices by the end of the summer. And it anticipates opening more field offices in other locations around the country in the future.

In the wake the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, the U.S. Capitol Police announced it is adding field offices in Tampa and San Francisco to investigate threats against members of Congress - both cities located in states from where the agency is receiving a big bulk of the threats. Read more»

Trump in an October 2020 campaign appearance at Phoenix Goodyear Airport.

After a contractor hired by state Senate Republicans to look into the results of the 2020 Arizona election provided an update on its findings at a legislative hearing on July 15, former President Donald Trump issued a series of false and misleading statements about what it has uncovered.
