    The National Guard and the Federal Emergency Management Agency will have key roles in President-elect Joe Biden’s plan to increase the numbers of Americans being vaccinated against the coronavirus. Biden’s plan, released Friday, calls for the National Guard and FEMA to build vaccine clinics, according to CNBC. He had said last fall that he planned to have the federal government foot the bill for National Guard deployments related to COVID-19. “It costs a lot of money and governors need that paid for,” Biden said at the time, according to Politico. “The fact is that this is a national emergency —...
  • Pro-Trump Amistad Project suit demands state governors open legislatures to vote on electors

    A new suit from the pro-Trump Amistad Project has filed suit in Washington to require five governors open their legislatures to vote on presidential electors, another long-shot play to potentially overturn Joe Biden’s victory. The suit, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in the District, demands that legislatures in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin be allowed to certify electors prior to congressional certification in January. Governors in those states urged legislatures to shut down due in part to COVID-19 concerns, and legislative leaders agreed. Legislatures in states such as Pennsylvania closed before this month’s planned vote to certify electors,...

    Where do these governors get the nerve to run point on a massive election fraud scheme? Actually, we the people are giving them this power. Though our Founders created a government by the people, we are allowing others to usurp that power, to take that power from us. Enter the "pandemic," where state officials openly reject the Constitution and make government the ruling authority. We've allowed their tyranny, and now we're trapped in a sick game of "Governor May I" where we need the governor's permission for every move we make. Restaurants Governor: You may take two baby steps. Open...
  • Governors' Holiday Menus Include Coronavirus Stress Test for the Constitution

    During the pandemic, what are some of America's governors serving up for the Thanksgiving through Christmas season? A stress test for the Constitution and a crackdown on individual liberty. That's how U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito aptly characterized the situation in a recent, stirring keynote virtual address at the conservative Federalist Society's National Lawyers Convention. Alito's remarks came days before several governors imposed their latest, newest shutdown edicts and their Thanksgiving gathering rules. The pandemic had already put great stress on individual liberties, and now, governors are adding even more. Some governors don't want you to hug or sing...

    Centuries ago, our ancestors endured unimaginable challenges and hardships in the new world, not yet called America. A group of 100 pilgrims sought a new world where they could enjoy religious and political freedom. This new world was cold, barren, and desolate. Many died that first winter but eventually they grew and thrived. Thanksgiving was a day when they thanked God for their blessings. Today as we approach another Thanksgiving, our elected leaders, of both parties, seek to reverse time, sending those they represent, back to a cold, barren, desolate world with death and misery, the world of COVID lockdowns....

Well Democrat Governors in CA, NY, IL, PA, MI, NJ, and other states did just that. They murdered elderly nursing home citizens so they could take out Trump.I share this from my heart, because of the women in the picture above. These women were...

    To America’s Governors,Over the last seven months, my Administration has worked tirelessly with Governors to respond to COVID-19. Through our work together, we have built a robust COVID-19 testing ecosystem, and I am pleased to be providing additional rapid point-of-care tests to continue to enhance our Nation’s testing system.In March, I challenged American biotechnology companies to develop a rapid, inexpensive, and accurate test. Abbott Laboratories has now delivered. My Administration recently announced the purchase of 150 million Abbott Laboratories BinaxNOWTM rapid point-of-care tests.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo claimed Tuesday that President Trump “caused” the coronavirus outbreak in New York by not banning travel from Europe sooner -- the latest in an escalation of words between the politicians. "Donald Trump caused the COVID outbreak in New York,” Cuomo said during a press briefing. “That is a fact. It’s a fact that he admitted, and the CDC admitted, and Fauci admitted.” He also slammed the president for calling coronavirus the “China virus.” “The China virus got on a plane and went to Europe,” Cuomo said. “The European virus came to New York.” “In mid-March...

    Today the Justice Department requested COVID-19 data from the governors of states that issued orders which may have resulted in the deaths of thousands of elderly nursing home residents. New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan required nursing homes to admit COVID-19 patients to their vulnerable populations, often without adequate testing. For example, on March 25, 2020, New York ordered: “No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to [a nursing home] solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. [Nursing homes] are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for...

    “There are no solutions, only trade-offs,” Thomas Sowell famously said. When government takes action, even if that action is desperately needed, we still give something up. In the case of the Wuhan virus — with the endless mask mandates, social restrictions, and shutdowns it has ushered in — that something is our precious freedom. The American founders recognized this conundrum. According to James Madison in Federalist 37, one of the greatest challenges of the Constitutional Convention was to find the right combination, the right proportions, of government power and individual liberty. The more we ask from our government, the more...

    Since each state gets to make its own laws about how its elections are conducted, Trump might not have the power to force blue governors to follow standard voting procedures. BUT, I'm thinking, he MAY have the authority to direct the FEC to move up the date by which all votes have to be certified. Yes? No? What are the flaws to this idea? If it's do-able, it could be a great way to knock these governors back into line. Feedback please, FReepers -- thanks

    Some of the most colorful descriptions of the violence facing police officers at Lafayette Square were clumsily spliced out of the middle of Barr's answers to questions. Key details on violent riots near the White House were removed from the broadcast of an interview of Attorney General William Barr on CBS News’ “Face The Nation” Sunday. Anchor Margaret Brennan repeatedly described protests as “peaceful” and the clearing of protesters to set up a stronger perimeter as unnecessarily rushed, contentions Barr strongly denied.Left out of the interview that aired on CBS on Sunday morning was Barr’s detailed accounting of much of...
