    Former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that there was a path to prosecute Mark Meadows, former President Donald Trump’s chief of staff. Discussing a Washington Post article headlined, “Inside Mark Meadows’s final push to keep Trump in power,” anchor Nicolle Wallace asked, “We know that he knew that there was no evidence of voter fraud. We know that because Bill Barr told him. What do you think Meadows’ sort of body of conduct that could end up under scrutiny really is, Claire?”

    Former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens (R), who resigned amid multiple scandals in 2018, is leading the race to become the GOP nominee to represent the state in the Senate, according to a new internal poll that his campaign shared with The Hill. The poll found Greitens leading two members of Congress — Reps. Vicky Hartzler and Billy Long — as well as Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and gun activist Mark McCloskey, who went viral after images showed he and his wife holding guns in front of their St. Louis home in 2020. More than a quarter of surveyed voters,...

    An aggressive effort in St. Louis is trying to lure Afghan refugees…. About 600 have arrived so far and another 750 are expected later this year. Civic leaders are hopeful that over the next few years, thousands more will decide to relocate to the Midwestern city, helping to offset seven decades of population loss and rejuvenate urban neighborhoods — just as the arrival of Bosnian refugees did three decades ago.

I’m thinking about them in the U.S. I’m thinking about other folks, people who can become pregnant,” and them losing access to abortion.

    Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Mo., responded to a recent Kansas City Star article appearing to link her faith to "White Christian nationalism," which the congresswoman said tried to make her look like a "radical." The Missouri lawmaker is running for Sen. Roy Blunt's open seat in Missouri’s crowded GOP primary this August and was the subject of story titled, "Running God's way: Can Vicky Hartzler's 'conservative biblical values' win a Senate seat?" The article was published by the KC Star on Easter Sunday. Reporter Daniel Desrochers suggested Hartzler's Christian views about returning the country to its traditional values mirrored "White Christian...

    Fox News Digital first reported on Bush's security payments in July 2021, which prompted questions from CBS News about the cash and whether it was hypocritical to hire security while pushing to defund law enforcement. "They would rather I die?" Bush asked. "You would rather me die? Is that what you want to see? You want to see me die? You know, because that could be the alternative." Bush said she would ensure she has security because she has had attempts on her life and has "too much work to do." "So suck it up, and defunding the police has...

    President Joe Biden should prioritize American energy independence and end reliance on adversaries such as Russia, Venezuela, and Iran, 27 state financial officers say in a letter Tuesday to the president. In their letter, they urge Biden to consider the consequences of foreign energy dependence for U.S. businesses and consumers. “Policies implemented during the last year thwart the vitality of American energy production,” the financial officers’ letter to Biden reads. “The rising cost of fuel, coupled with precipitous inflation has, and will, continue to result in dire consequences for working-class families.” The 27 state-level officials are part of the State...

    Three red states — Arizona, Louisiana, and Missouri — have filed suit to block the Biden administration from lifting Title 42. The administration said on Friday that it would lift the public health policy that has been in place since the Trump administration, which enabled border enforcement to summarily expel millions of aliens who attempted to enter the country at the southern border. The order is set to be lifted on May 23 — at which time DHS estimates the already overwhelming influx at the southern border may increase to as many as 18,000 apprehensions per day.On Sunday, the attorneys...

    Border chief Alejandro Mayorkas is directing that economic migrants get every opportunity to stay once the Title 42 barrier is removed — regardless of the huge damage he inflicts on ordinary Americans.

The February strategy is titled “DHS Southwest Border Mass Irregular Migration Contingency Plan,” and it says on page 16: A.

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis mayor has signed a bill allowing taxpayers to voluntarily donate to a slavery reparations fund. Tishaura Jones, the city’s first Black female mayor, described the move in a statement Friday as an effort to “reverse generational wrongs,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. The bill, passed last month by the Board of Aldermen, will allow residents and companies to contribute to the fund by adding donations to yearly property tax bills or to the joint water and refuse collection bills issued quarterly. When the measure was considered by an aldermanic committee, members expressed concern...

Steelville High School made the announcement Thursday on Facebook, claiming it's the school's latest attempt to prevent students from taking photos and videos of each other for social media. The new policy is a roundabout way to prevent child pornography from being filmed in the form of impromptu videos in school bathrooms, according to the principal. ... Student devices will be locked up and returned upon dismissal or they may choose to not bring them at all," Principal Steven Vetter wrote. "Any student who violates this new...

    On February 16, 2022, the Biden Administration filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri, Central Division, claiming the Second Amendment Protection Act, (SAPA) was unconstitutional. From the federal filing:This lawsuit challenges a Missouri state statute that purports to invalidate federal firearm laws within the State. The Missouri law uniquely discriminates against federal agencies and employees; impairs law enforcement efforts in Missouri; and contravenes the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution.The statute referred to was passed as HB 85 and 310. The bills specifically challenge federal power in several ways. The bills...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Anheuser-Busch beer heiress Trudy Busch Valentine on Tuesday announced her candidacy for U.S. Senate, shaking up what has been a low-profile Democratic primary in a solidly red state. Busch Valentine's entrance into the race comes amid widespread calls from fellow Republicans for former Gov. Eric Greitens to drop out of the race after his ex-wife accused him of physically abusing her and one of their kids. The latest scandal renewed Republican concerns that Greitens could win the crowded GOP primary but emerge a damaged candidate in the general election, threatening the party's chances of keeping...

    Senate Judiciary Committee member Ben Sasse (R-NE) announced Friday night he will vote “no” on Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination, threatening the committee’s approval of the judge. If a majority of Judiciary Committee members do not vote to approve Jackson’s nomination, the vote may result in an 11-11 tie between Republicans and Democrats, forwarding her nomination to the Senate floor with additional procedural steps, meaning the nomination does not have the committee’s recommendation, which under other circumstances is often fatal. A full Senate vote could then mean moderate Democrats may oppose Jackson’s nomination because of her record of soft...
