    Author’s Note: In light of the Supreme Court’s disastrous and unconstitutional decision to support the Biden regime’s border invasion in the Texas “razor wire” case, it seemed to be the right time to revisit this article from 2021 which explained to conservative voters how our “hand-picked” conservative judges betrayed us during the post-Trump years. It seems a hundred years have passed since President Trump picked Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch and Amy Coney Barrett to serve on the Supreme Court and started what was supposed to be the Great Conservative Years of the Trump Era. Long after the Donald left...

    After nearly three weeks of hand-wringing from all sides, Donald Trump is back on the Colorado primary ballot. The news was announced by Jena Griswold, Colorado's Secretary of State, on Friday evening, claiming that the Supreme Court's acceptance of the case was the catalyst for the reversal.

    Only if a critical mass of Americans ‘know what time it is’ will there be any hope of combating this onslaught.Democrats are seeking to land a one-two punch to cement their control of America today and for generations to come: Criminalize the political opposition and cripple the last authority to which the opposition might appeal in defense of its rights.This is one way to understand two running lines of attack that may appear independent but are inextricably intertwined.Criminalizing the OppositionThe first consists of the unprecedented, Soviet show trial-style “show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” “cases” conjured...

    Criminal prosecutors may soon get to see over 900 documents pertaining to the alleged theft of a diary belonging to President Joe Biden’s daughter after a judge rejected the conservative group Project Veritas’ First Amendment claim. Attorney Jeffrey Lichtman said on behalf of the nonprofit Monday that attorneys are considering appealing last Thursday’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres in Manhattan. In the written decision, the judge said the documents can be given to investigators by Jan. 5. The documents were produced from raids that were authorized in November 2021. Electronic devices were also seized from the residences of...

  • 2007 FBI Investigation Resurfaces – A Biden Is Clearly Heard on the Tapes (audio and transcript)

    12/18/2023 8:04:21 AM PST · by bitt · 7 replies
    Out of all the topics the Joe Biden White House didn’t want to see in Sunday’s Washington Post, this had to be up there on the list. The capital city’s newspaper of record published recordings Sunday of President Joe Biden’s brother, James, engaged in scoring off his famous last name during the late 1990s. The fact that the recordings were made by FBI investigators couldn’t have made things easier in the Biden household either. The Post article was headlined “James Biden’s dealmaking caught on FBI tapes in unrelated bribery probe,” and just the words alone had to be unsettling at...

    The House Oversight investigation into President Joe Biden and his family's influence-peddling schemes digs all the way back to ties to the late-’90s big tobacco settlement, including James Biden's deal-working caught on FBI tapes in an unrelated 2008 bribery scheme. James Biden's deal-making getting picked up on FBI tapes in 2008, as The Washington Post reported Sunday, are resurfacing amid the House Oversight investigation and the official impeachment inquiry. Mississippi trial attorney Richard Scruggs admitted to paying James and Sara Biden's "consulting firm" $100,000 to help grease the wheels for the Senate to pass a 1997 big tobacco law that...

    A US Senate staffer allegedly caught filming himself having sex in a Judiciary Committee hearing room has been fired, Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Maryland) said on X. “Aidan Maese-Czeropski is no longer employed by the U.S. Senate. We will have no further comment on this personnel matter,” a Cardin spokeswoman told The Post. Maese-Czeropski, a 24-year-old legislative aide, posted video of himself...with another man on a public X account. His face was clearly visible according to The Spectator, which first broke the story Friday. The roughly eight seconds of intercourse took place in the same room where nominees to the Supreme...

    Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee raged against Chairman Dick Durbin Thursday after he refused a third debate on two of President Biden’s judicial nominees, leading one senior GOP lawmaker to say Durbin had “just destroyed one of the most important committees in the United States Senate.” As a roll call vote got underway, senators on the Republican side warned that Durbin’s steamrolling would be remembered. “You’re gonna have a lot of consequences coming if you go down this road. I’ve cautioned a lot of you,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) told his Democratic colleagues.

    Majority Democrats on a Senate committee on Thursday abandoned their work, which was targeting conservatives on the Supreme Court, when GOP members suggested subpoenas for the staff of leftist Justice Sonia Sotomayor... Senate Judiciary Committee “punted” on votes scheduled regarding the issuance of subpoenas for GOP donors Leonard Leo and Harlan Crow. Sen Dick Durbin, D-Ill., has accused the two of “stonewalling” an investigation into the high court “that seeks to determine whether two Republican-appointed justices, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, acted with any impropriety,” the report said. The confrontation was launched when ProPublica said they helped facilitate trips for...

    Democrats hit the brakes on plans to subpoena conservative legal scholar Leonard Leo and billionaire Harlan Crow during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill Thursday, scoring a win for the integrity of the Supreme Court. The move came after Republican Ranking Member Lindsey Graham warned Chairman Dick Durbin and other Democrats that their efforts to intimidate friends and acquaintances of conservative Supreme Court Justices, specifically Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito under the guise of "ethics reform," would backfire. "I promise you, everything that was working well with the committee is now in jeopardy," Graham warned. "You’re going to...

  • Ignore President Biden, Here's What Is Really Happening in Israel: The reforms Netanyahu supports are far better aligned with the norms of a functioning “democracy” than the ones in place

    President Joe Biden has reportedly asked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop pushing through a “divisive” judicial overhaul bill amid protests. This is the same Biden, incidentally, who crammed through a massive, highly “divisive,” generational spending bill with zero votes from the opposition; the same guy who regularly rules by unconstitutional executive diktats; and the same guy who has done more to delegitimize the Supreme Court than any president in modern history. In any event, the president is concerned. As is The New York Times, which reports, “The Israeli Parliament passed a deeply contentious law limiting the Supreme Court’s...
