    Many top conservatives slammed the bipartisan agreement reached between President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy over the weekend that is expected to prevent the U.S. from defaulting on its debt.While the details of the agreement are still being ironed out, and congressional leaders still have to convince their Members to vote for it, some of the top Republicans in Washington, D.C., are not happy with the agreement.“There are members of the GOP claiming Democrats got nothing from the ‘deal.’ Oh really? 1) An uncapped debt ceiling with an expiration date – worth approximately $4 trillion…? 2) basically no...

    Longtime Oregon Republican National Committeeman Solomon Yue is facing a recall from the state party that he suspects is in response to his support of former President Donald Trump. Yue, who is in his sixth term as state GOP national committeeman, is basing his assumption, at least in part, on the petition to recall him having been circulating days after he met with the former president, who promised to hold a rally in Oregon. Trump met with Yue last month at the National Rifle Association’s National Convention in Indianapolis. Yue told Just the News this weekend he wanted Trump to...

Americans have correctly concluded that [with the "Russia Hoax" and suppressing reported influence peddling in Hunter Biden's laptop ] journalists and spies advanced a "fraud" on voters as part of an effort to censor a damaging story and "help Biden win." Nevertheless, The New York Times and The Washington Post have yet to return the Pulitzer Prizes they received for reporting totally discredited "fake news."

    Business Insider, via Yahoo! News ^ | 5/28/2023 | Jyoti Mann
    Several Republican representatives say they're unhappy with the debt ceiling deal after the White House and House Speaker reached a tentative agreement Saturday night. Kevin McCarthy said he'd spoken with President Joe Biden on the phone twice and struck a deal in principle after weeks of fraught negotiations. The deal means the US will avert a national debt default, which could trigger chaos on financial markets and send the dollar sinking – but the legislation still has to pass both the House and the Senate. Republican Congressmen Ralph Norman and Ken Buck both attacked the agreement. Norman, of South Carolina,...

    Mayor Eric Adams is seeking a suspension of the city’s “right to shelter” regulation as it struggles to provide housing, food and legal services to over 40,000 migrants with limited federal assistance. The New York City Law Department submitted an application on Tuesday night requesting that the Big Apple’s decades-old “right to shelter” regulation is modified, explaining that the surge of migrants has placed “unprecedented demands” on the city’s resources. “Given that we’re unable to provide care for an unlimited number of people and are already overextended, it is in the best interest of everyone, including those seeking to come...
  • Asked about pardoning Trump as president, DeSantis says he would be 'aggressive'

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was asked on Thursday about potentially using his pardon power if elected president to offer clemency to Jan. 6 defendants or even Donald Trump -- and while he didn't answer directly, he suggested he would consider it. DeSantis made his comments while appearing on the "The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show" amid an early media blitz one day after launching a bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024. "A big part of being president is pardon powers. Do you think the Jan. 6 defendants deserve to have their cases examined by a Republican president?...

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is facing intense opposition from conservative members of his own party over the tentative debt limit deal he reached with President Joe Biden. Many congressional Republicans from the conservative Freedom Caucus have said they are against McCarthy's tentative deal he reached Saturday with Biden. A source close to House Republican leadership told Axios on Sunday that 60 conservative Republicans may not vote for the deal, which means McCarthy would need nearly that many Democrats to vote for the bill in the House, which has 222 Republicans and 213 Democrats. A summary of the deal obtained...

    A long-time Ron DeSantis advisor is “stepping down” from his role with the Florida governor’s presidential campaign political action committee: the ‘Never Back Down PAC’. The news comes one month after The National Pulse revealed that Cox was also a partner at the parent firm of pro-DeSantis pollster, Gp3, also known as ‘POS Strategies’.Cox served as the political director for DeSantis’s reelection campaign just last year, and was described as leading “the strategy and messaging for the super PAC.”A board member for Mitch McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund, Cox’s reason for departure is still unknown, with POLITICO reporter Alex Isenstadt reporting:...

    Donald Trump’s presidential announcement at Mar-a-Lago last November was viewed by around 4.5 times the number of people as that of Governor Ron DeSantis’s on Twitter this week, according to the data.DeSantis said his glitch-ridden Twitter Space, or a recording of it, had been watched by “probably over 10 million people”. There’s no evidence of this. In fact, the Space managed only just over 300,000 concurrent listeners, with Twitter showing a currently tally of 3.9 million people tuning in.Trump’s announcement, despite many news networks not carrying it in full, interspersing it with adverts, or not carrying it at all, achieved...

    Governor Ron DeSantis is standing up for everyday Americans, which helps explain why people of all races are moving to Florida in droves...These days headlines read like parodies, which is certainly the case with the NAACP’s recent announcement that it has issued “a formal travel advisory for the state of Florida.” That’s right: The NAACP isn’t particularly worried about black people visiting North Korea, Iran, or inner-city neighborhoods in Chicago. It’s worried about them heading to Florida’s beaches or amusement parks. Why? Because Governor Ron DeSantis has led “unrelenting attacks on fundamental freedoms” such as the freedom to teach critical...

    Illegal immigrants are coached to voluntarily withdraw their asylum claims, return to Mexico, and then return to the United States on humanitarian grounds, according to a U.S. Border Patrol union leader. Manny Bayon, a National Border Patrol Council union spokesman in San Diego, told The Epoch Times on May 26 that migrants who enter the United States illegally in Yuma, Arizona, are being bused to the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa ports of entry in San Diego County. From there, he said, they are returned to Mexico but are allowed to re-enter the United States by applying for “humanitarian parole”...

    Duke University is facing a fresh federal civil rights investigation for a racially exclusive program at its medical school days after resolving a separate civil rights matter over excluding women. Last week, the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights informed Mark Perry, a senior fellow with the medical watchdog group Do No Harm, that Duke University was no longer excluding men from two programs the school had organized, one for high school girls interested in orthopedic surgery and engineering, and another for female medical students. But on Tuesday, in response to a complaint from Perry about a program at...

    AZ Mirror ^ | 5/26/23 | GLORIA REBECCA GOMEZ
    Gov. Katie Hobbs on Friday issued five more vetoes, rejecting Republican-led bills that state officials warned would have undermined and overcomplicated elections in Arizona. With her five new vetoes, Hobbs has so far delivered 99 rejections in her first term as governor, the most of any of her predecessors. One of the vetoes, Senate Bill 1135, would ultimately have forced the state to withdraw from the Electronic Registration Information Center, a multistate coalition that helps states share and keep accurate voter registration rolls. Known as ERIC, the coalition has come under fire from far-right conspiracy theorists who baselessly contend it...
  • NYC immigration court backlog so flooded migrants could wait for up to a decade

    NY Post ^ | May 27, 2023 | By Jacob Geanous
    Massive and ever-growing backlogs in NYC immigration courts mean migrants who want to become US citizens have to wait about three years to have their cases heard — and up to a decade to complete the entire process. At least 127,000 pending cases were mired in court at the start of the month and that number is expected to exponentially grow as the one-year deadline to file for asylum approaches for the more than 70,000 migrants who have arrived in New York City in recent months. The backlog is fueled by New York’s sanctuary city status — and asylum applicants...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. — More than 70 California law enforcement agencies are violating state law by sharing automated license plate reader (ALPR) data with out-of-state agencies, putting out-of-state abortion seekers at risk, according to a trio of civil rights groups. The Electronic Frontier Foundation and the American Civil Liberties Union chapters for both Northern and Southern California sent letters to 71 agencies — including the Folsom Police Department — giving them a June 15 deadline to stop sharing license plate data with states that criminalize abortion. On Friday, the Twitter account for Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, which was not listed in...

    A Washington state appeals court this week granted an emergency injunction to a retired doctor who faces disciplinary action from the Washington Medical Commission (WMC) arising from articles he published in a local newspaper in 2021, questioning the official narrative and medical advice related to COVID-19. Dr. Richard Eggleston, a retired ophthalmologist in Clarkston, Washington, wrote the articles as part of an ongoing column in the Lewiston Morning Tribune. He challenged the WMC’s disciplinary proceedings against him on First Amendment free speech grounds. According to Tuesday’s ruling: “The Commission seeks to sanction Dr. Eggleston based on allegations that he, a...

    Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration has warned Big Tech companies that they will be held “accountable” unless they enforce “zero-tolerance” policies regarding so-called “hate speech” on their platforms. The White House unveiled a strategy to “fight antisemitism” that involves cracking down on Americans’ online speech. The plan tells Congress to push social media platforms to be held “accountable” for “hate speech.” The 60-page document details four pillars of the strategy. According to the Biden admin, the plan involves raising awareness, improving safety for Jewish communities, reversing what they call the normalization of antisemitism, and countering antisemitic discrimination and hate speech....
