  • Jackson Lee: ‘Most of’ Border ‘Well-Protected’ and Runs Fine, Inability to Handle Surge Is Fault of Title 42 and Abbott

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) stated that “most of” the border “is well-protected with legal points of entry and it operates appropriately.” And said that the inability to handle the current surge is due to Title 42 and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R).

    It was starting out to be such a great summer, but then… Foot-dragging states like California and New York were beginning to catch up with the rest of us in Texas, Florida and other smart places which long ago reopened our restaurants, movie theaters and other businesses… abandoning myopic “mask mandates” while watching our COVID-19 numbers plummet. Tunnel-vision publishers like Simon & Schuster, which cancelled U.S. Senator Josh Hawley’s stunningly important book The Tyranny of Big Tech, saw Salem Media’s Regnery Publishing pick it up and reap the profits. And Dr. Fauci was pulled down from his pedestal as even...
  • Washington and Lee University to maintain its name

    The Board of Trustees at Washington and Lee University voted 22-6 on Friday to continue under its current name, which includes former President George Washington and Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. The board acknowledged “sharp disagreements” about the school’s name and history but said members found no consensus as to whether changing the Lexington, Virginia, university’s name “is consistent with our shared values.”

    Bizarre news out of Lexington, Virginia; Washington and Lee University may finally change its name. Actually, the goofballs sitting on the school’s board of trustees may eradicate both of those hallowed names and substitute something more woke. I have a few suggestions. How about “AOC University?” (Bartending for idiots could be an AP course) “Donna Brazile University?” (where you get all the answers to the tests ahead of time) “Clinton & Clinton University?” The Latin inscription on the seal would read Quid enim interest in hac parte, ut non ea (What difference at this point does it make?) At half-time...
  • Media hyped so-called 'descendent' of Robert E. Lee after Charlottesville, WaPo suggests they're not relate (Rev. Robert W. Lee)

    A fact-check from The Washington Post concluded that there is no evidence that a man who claimed to be a descendent of Robert E. Lee was actually related to the Confederate general. In the weeks following the events of Charlottesville back in 2017, Rev. Robert W. Lee became a national figure for denouncing his apparent relative at the MTV Video Music Awards. "My name is Robert Lee the Fourth. I am a descendent of Robert E. Lee, the Civil War general whose statue was at the center of violence in Charlottesville," Lee began his address to the audience. "We have...

    Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) did not hold back Wednesday in ripping H.R. 1, the so-called “For the People Act.” The House bill would radically change the United States’ voting system. Lee called the bill “rotten to the core.” He said it is as if the bill was “written in hell by the devil himself.” “I disagree with every single word in H.R. 1, including the words ‘but,’ ‘and,’ and ‘the.’ Everything about this bill is rotten to the core. This is a bill as if written in hell by the devil himself,” Lee declared. “This takes all sorts of decisions...

    Democrat Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, who faced controversy for dressing in black face while in medical school, ordered a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee removed overnight from the United States Capitol. The Washington Post reported it will be replaced by a statue of Barbara Johns, who was a civil rights activist as a teen in Farmville, Virginia. “Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) had requested the removal over the summer after a commission chartered by the General Assembly decided that a man who fought to uphold slavery was not a fitting symbol for a diverse and modern state,” the...

    Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee (R) is the latest state leader to urge residents to drastically limit their holiday gatherings by spending them only with members of the same household, signing an executive order limiting indoor public events to ten. In a Sunday evening address, the Republican governor identified Tennesee as “ground zero for a surge in sickness,” describing the ongoing pandemic as a “war.” Approximately 10,000 Tennesseans are getting sick daily, the governor said, largely attributing the spike to holiday gatherings — namely, the Thanksgiving gatherings

    RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Governor Northam announced that Virginia’s statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee was removed from the U.S. Capitol overnight. A representative from the governor’s office was present for the removal along with United States Senator Tim Kaine and Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton. For 111 years, the Confederate statue has stood along with America’s first president George Washington as Virginia’s contributions. The two statues were added in 1909, which was 44 years after the Confederacy rebelled against the United States and was defeated.

According to GovTrack, Lee was the “most politically left” member of the House of Representatives in 2019.

The Entertainment One film is based on David Kushner’s Esquire article titled “All Rise: The Untold Story of the Guys Who Launched Viagra.” Lee is directing the untitled musical from a screenplay he wrote with Kwame Kwei-Armah.

    The confirmation battle to fill Justice Ginsburg's seat could be apocalyptic. Here's the strategy behind some of the president's top contenders. President Donald Trump will make his third nomination to the Supreme Court on Saturday. The initial plan was to make the nomination very quickly following the death of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg last Friday, but it has been delayed so that the country may properly mourn the justice known for her support of liberal social causes. Ginsburg was appointed by President Bill Clinton 27 years ago. A reliable vote for the left block of the court, she was...

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said Sunday that the Senate will move “without delay” to confirm a replacement for the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg but that he has taken himself out of contention for the position. Cotton, along with his Senate colleagues Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Tex), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), are on Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court picks, though all four would be out-of-the-box picks.

Mike Lee (R-UT), according to Hill sources. “There isn’t a single Republican in the U.S. Senate that will stand up against outsourcers,” said an advocate for more legal immigration. “I don’t think the GOP is going block the bill,” a Hill source said.

    WASHINGTON - Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) sent a letter to the CEOs of Alphabet, Facebook, Squarespace, and Twitter Thursday asking each company to identify and justify their content moderation process. “I am specifically concerned about corporations using their power unilaterally to silence opinions they dislike and thus warp the public debates their platforms present to the American people,” the letter reads. Sen Lee goes on to ask the Big Tech CEOs 11 questions including: “What content-moderation standards do you employ when you remove content from your platform, where the content does not violate state or federal laws?” “How do you...
