Klobuchar’s Fake War on Big Tech

Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is at least zero for two when it comes to legislation limiting the power of Big Tech.
After hearing from an extreme far-left Facebook whistleblower who is being funded by former eBay founder and current billionaire social engineer Pierre Omidyar, who wants more censorship of conservatives, Klobuchar responded in a clip played by Shannon Bond on National Public Radio saying, “I think the time has come for action, and I think you are the catalyst for that action.

Biden’s Unlawful Plan to Federalize Elections

The White House recently issued a statement regarding new actions dozens of federal agencies are taking related to voter registration. These actions come in response to an order President Joe Biden issued back in March.
The order commanded the heads of every federal agency to submit a plan outlining their strategy to engage in voter registration and mobilization efforts to the director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, Susan Rice. This is an unlawful effort by the Biden administration to federalize elections and keep the president and his political party in power.

Don’t fall for Dems’ self-serving baloney about safeguarding elections: Vote ‘No’ on NY’s Props. 1, 3 and 4

New York Democrats use a nasty trick. They propose something of self-interest, couch it in lofty language and then call anyone who opposes it “haters” — or worse.
There’s no better example than the three cynical ballot initiatives they’re thrusting on  voters this Nov. 2 in the false name of election reform. New Yorkers should see through the “progressives’” charade and resoundingly vote “No” on Propositions 1, 3 and 4.

Donald Trump’s Outrageous Reading of Executive Privilege Can’t Save Steve Bannon

Steve Bannon believes that he can defy a congressional subpoena because Donald Trump told him so. That, at least, is what Bannon’s lawyer Robert Costello told the House select committee investigating the events of January 6th, in a letter saying that Trump had instructed Bannon and others not to testify, citing a vague claim of executive privilege. The committee, understandably, disagrees. Bannon, Trump’s 2016 campaign chairman and sometime White House strategist, was closely involved in the planning of Trump’s Save America rally, which preceded the march and assault on the Capitol.

The Supreme Court Now Has Roe in Its Sights

The Supreme Court is setting up a blockbuster series of rulings on the future of abortion rights in America. On Friday, the justices turned down a second request to temporarily block Texas’s de facto ban on most abortions, allowing the controversial S.B. 8 to stay in force while litigation unfolds. At the same time, the court used a rare procedural maneuver to fast-track two legal challenges to S.B. 8 for consideration on November 1—one month before it will also hear oral arguments on a pre-viability abortion ban in Mississippi.

Trump is responsible for one of Biden’s worst nominees being confirmed

Senate Democrats confirmed someone who is arguably President Joe Biden’s worst nominee. You can thank former President Donald Trump for it.
Catherine Lhamon, Biden’s nominee for the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, was confirmed by a 51-50 vote, with every Democratic senator voting to confirm her and Vice President Kamala Harris breaking the tie.
Lhamon will now be in charge of Title IX enforcement, and her track record is atrocious. As the assistant secretary for civil rights from 2013-2017, she oversaw the destruction of due process rights on college campuses.

What the Supreme Court’s Sudden Intervention in the Texas Abortion Case Tells Us

On Friday, the Supreme Court took up two challenges to Texas’ S.B. 8, which bans abortion after six weeks. The justices did not, however, tee up a ruling on the merits of the law; instead, they agreed to decide whether procedural obstacles prevent anyone from filing a federal lawsuit against the measure. And while they scheduled oral arguments for Nov. 1, they did not block S.B. 8 in the meantime, ensuring that abortion will remain illegal in Texas until the court issues a decision.

The Supreme Court’s very unusual new abortion orders, explained

The Supreme Court handed down a pair of very closely related orders on Friday concerning SB 8, a Texas law that effectively bans all abortions after the sixth week of pregnancy. The punchline is that the ban on nearly all abortions in Texas remains in effect, but the justices appear very eager to resolve the very unusual legal questions presented by this law.
The two orders arise out of two separate cases. Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson is a suit brought by abortion providers hoping to block SB 8. United States v.
