    A recent $5 million defamation verdict hasn’t kept Donald Trump quiet. Will a stern warning from the judge in his Manhattan criminal case? That’s the question looming over a hybrid hearing Tuesday where the former president is set be instructed on new rules barring him from using evidence in the hush-money case to attack witnesses who could testify against him. Trump won’t have to show up to court for the afternoon hearing at a Manhattan courthouse, avoiding the mammoth security and logistical challenges that accompanied his arraignment last month. Instead, the Republican will be connected by video conference, with his...

    Walmart’s website opens with photos of mothers and children shopping, weekly specials on daily necessities, and — for those who click on the “Our Company” link and dig a little deeper — an unabashed admission Walmart has been videoing every gun sale in its stores. The “Our Company” tab shifts the website to Walmart’s corporate page, from whence one can peruse various pages, one of which sets forth Walmart’s policy for “Responsible Firearm Sales.” On the “Responsible Firearm Sales” page, Walmart says, in part: In 2018, we made the decision to raise the minimum age to purchase firearms and ammunition...

    NEW ORLEANS — President Joe Biden’s order that federal employees get vaccinated against COVID-19 was blocked Thursday by a federal appeals court. The 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans rejected arguments that Biden, as the nation’s chief executive, has the same authority as the CEO of a private corporation to require that employees be vaccinated. The ruling from the full appeals court, 16 full-time judges at the time the case was argued, reversed an earlier ruling by a three-judge 5th Circuit panel that had upheld the vaccination requirement. Judge Andrew Oldham, nominated to the court by then-President...
  • Us Citizens Were Tracked Via Secret ‘Covid Decree Violation’ Scores

    Data was used to help Democrats win elections. Tens of millions of US citizens were given a “COVID-19 decree violation” score as a result of a data harvesting program conducted during the first lockdown by voter analytics firm PredictWise. “These Covid-19 decree violation scores were calculated by analyzing nearly two billion global positioning system (GPS) pings to get “real-time, ultra-granular locations patterns.” People who were “on the go more often than their neighbors” were given a high Covid-19 decree violation score while those who mostly or always stayed at home were given a low Covid-19 decree violation score,” writes Reclaim...

    The far left is eager to repeal 2A. We are not as free as we think. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO), an organization headquartered all the way in Geneva, will be tracking all gun purchases made on credit. The ISO develops standard documentation that is globally recognized. Gun sales were previously listed as “general merchandise,” but the ISO is changing the code. If you purchase a gun through a credit card, an international agency will document the purchase. Cash is still an option for now, but I expect it will become increasingly difficult to gain access to firearms –...

    Democrats have forced credit card companies to track your private Second Amendment-related purchases. It's basically a gun registry and fascism by proxy. There's a booming underground market for donkey penises in Africa. And Kamala Harris said January 6 is comparable to September 11, in some of her dumbest comments to date.

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that the Department of Justice had “no choice” but to raid former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate to recover classified documents. Guest-host Terry Moran asked, “You mentioned the former President, Donald Trump. Let’s talk about the search of Mar-a-Lago and the legal battle that’s come out. Chris, call on your experience on that. The judge in this case, or in the case that the Trump team brought has appointed a special master to look over all of the material seized out of Mar-a-Lago. The Justice Department is appealing....

    Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that former President Donald Trump will be indicted for crimes related to the mishandling of classified documents soon. Cohen said, “I do think there’s going to be an indictment and relatively soon. I believe there will also be congressional hearings with Donald in the hot seat where, you know, either he’ll come in willingly, which I don’t think he will or via subpoena. I mean, the real questions that they have to be asking right now is, you know, where are the documents that were in the empty top...
  • Garland needs to stomp on the dubious leaks and tell the nation what’s in the Mar-a-Lago docs

    Funny thing: Former President Donald Trump was hoarding classified documents so dear that only cabinet members could read them. We apparently know this because … Department of Justice employees leaked that information to the Washington Post. It’s impossible to take seriously the lecturing on how incredibly dangerous and unprecedented the Mar-a-Lago stash is when its details are given out anonymously to select members of the press. Not that we shouldn’t know what Trump had — to the contrary. Attorney General Merrick Garland should make it clear that he won’t tolerate media leaks, and anyone at Justice or elsewhere in government...

    Former Attorney General Bill Barr said Wednesday on FNC’s “America’s Newsroom” that the fact that the FBI found former President Donald Trump’s passports with classified documents during the raid at Mar-a-Lago is evidence that “ties Trump to those documents.”Barr said, “You don’t go into someone’s house and look document by document. You take what you think will be responsive, and then you sort it out through a taint team. No one disputes that goes back, OK? The classified stuff are government documents, and they go to the government. There is no scenario legally under which the president gets to keep...

    Joe Biden has made his obsession with President Trump known, most recently through his hellishly lit Mussolini-meltdown speech at Independence Hall in Philadelphia last week, manically painting Trump and all his voters as "threats to the republic."He may be doddering and insentient, but he still burns bright against his potential opponent in the 2024 presidential race, which even Democrats don't want him to get involved with. On Trump, Biden's as obsessed with Trump as Stalin was with Trotsky.So it comes to light that not only has Biden tried to smear Trump as a danger to democracy and "threat to the...

    The sworn affidavit presented to secure the search warrant for Mar-a-Lago used by the FBI to raid Donald Trump’s home had what appears to be a crucial error in it, one that could be easily debunked. If the facts detailed by independent journalist Paul Sperry are accurate, this could be enough to obliterate the Department of Justice’s case against Trump. In a post on Gettr, Sperry said: BREAKING: The FBI affiant who swore to the Mar-a-Lago search warrant appears to have made a critical factual error by stating in the unsealed affidavit: “I do not believe that any spaces within...

    As RedState reported, the affidavit for the search warrant that led to an unprecedented FBI raid on Donald Trump’s home has been released in heavily redacted form. As if to play out the meme that had been going around for days suggesting the affidavit would be a giant blob of black ink, that turned out to be mostly true.The document is full of redacted sections, to the point of absurdity, representing a giant middle finger to transparency by a federal bureaucracy that simply doesn’t care.It was supposed to be a meme but then the meme came true.— Bonchie (@bonchieredstate)...

    1.
