  • Joe Manchin Opposes Biden FCC Nominee over ‘Toxic Partisanship’

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said he would oppose President Joe Biden’s FCC nominee, Gigi Sohn, saying that Sohn cannot rise above her “toxic partisanship.” “The FCC must remain above the toxic partisanship that Americans are sick and tired of, and Ms. Sohn has clearly shown she is not the person to do that,” Manchin said in a statement. Manchin’s opposition to Sohn could likely sink her nomination to serve at the FCC. Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) is still in the hospital being treated for clinical depression, and if one more Democrat opposes her, it could effectively tank her nomination.

    Gov. Chris Sununu (R-N.H.), a potential 2024 contender, on Sunday predicted that former President Trump, who’s running for another White House term, won’t be the GOP’s nominee when it comes the presidential primaries. “As far as a former President Trump, I think he’s going to run – obviously he’s in the race. He’s not going to be the nominee. That’s just not going to happen,” Sununu said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said last week that she expects the party will ask candidates participating on the GOP debate stage to sign a pledge saying...

    Failed presidential candidate Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) told reporters on Wednesday that former President Donald Trump will likely be the Republican nominee in 2024, and the potential wide field of candidates will only improve his chances. “I think President Trump is by far the most likely to become our nominee,” he said in the Capitol. “If there’s an alternative to that, it would be only realistic if it narrows down to a two-person race at some point.” Romney’s comment came the day after former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley launched her 2024 presidential campaign, joining Trump. The field is expected to...

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Thursday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that former President Donald Trump will be the Republican 2024 presidential nominee or he will “burn down” anyone who is. Referencing House Republicans voting for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee, Ocasio-Cortez said, “I think Speaker McCarthy gets a fundraising boom. I think he gets potentially currying favor with either Trump and his base, saying I delivered on these promises. I’m a good soldier to the Trumpian political base. I am really letting the world know that the House Republican Party is now...

    Former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, a moderate Republican who has long been a critic of former President Trump, said he would support Trump if he is the GOP nominee for president in 2024. Hogan, who is mulling a White House bid of his own, has said he does not think Trump will be the party’s nominee in 2024. But in an interview with conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt on Thursday, Hogan reluctantly conceded that he would support whoever the GOP’s choice for president is in 2024. “Yeah, I just don’t think [Trump will] be the nominee, but I’ll...

    Former Gov. Larry Hogan (R-MD) said Tuesday on FNC’s “Your World” that he was seriously considering running for president in 2024. On the 2024 presidential election, anchor Neil Cavuto said, “There’s talk that you will be among those candidates. Is that true?” Hogan said, “I’m certainly giving it serious consideration. We’ve been really successful 30 miles outside of Washington, where everything appears to be broken and nothing but dysfunction. I got them to cut taxing eight years in a row, and I had the biggest economic turnaround in America. But we’re taking a close look at it.”

    by Becca LondonAt the U.S. Senate on Wednesday, several Biden nominees for Federal judicial positions appeared before Judiciary Committee members for questions. But one group of questions in particular is causing shock and even anger among the public as the video starts to go viral. The questions were posed by Lousiana Senator John Kennedy (R) to state Judge Charnelle Bjelkengren, who was nominated by Biden for the lifetime position of U.S. District Judge for the Eastern District of Washington. The "answers" were non-existent. Kennedy began by asking Judge Bjelkengren, about Article V of the US Constitution. Bjelkengren responded, "Article V...

    President Joe Biden, embattled in controversy stemming from his handling of classified documents, had previously tanked former President Jimmy Carter’s nomination for CIA director over his alleged mishandling of classified documents while Biden served in the U.S. Senate. In 1977, Carter nominated Ted Sorensen to lead the CIA.

    Twice-failed Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is now lobbying the Joe Biden White House to be the next nominee for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), according to a report. FCC nominee Gigi Sohn’s confirmation vote has been put on the back burner as Senate Democrats’ one-member majority has struggled to find a way to confirm her. Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA), the chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, said that she will push to renominate Sohn, a radical progressive on technology issues, if Congress’s upper chamber cannot confirm her this congressional session.

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who chairs the Senate’s Energy and Natural Resources Committee, has come out in opposition to President Biden’s renomination of an interstate energy regulator. Manchin spokesperson Sam Runyon said via email that the senator is “not comfortable holding a hearing” on the confirmation of Richard Glick for another term on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Runyon’s brief email did not elaborate on Manchin’s reasoning. Glick’s term on the energy commission expired over the summer, but he’s allowed to serve until the end of the year. Manchin’s position, which was first reported by Bloomberg Law, comes amid...

    Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz gave a full-throated endorsement of former President Donald Trump for the 2024 GOP nomination on Wednesday as other conservatives blamed the ex-president for the Republican Party's middling performance in the midterm elections. While some conservative commentators lashed out at Trump after several of his endorsed candidates lost their races Tuesday, Gaetz wrote in a Daily Caller op-ed that a Trump 2024 run is "necessary" to "continue to disrupt and serve the people against the Swamp." "The job President Trump started was not finished. Only Trump can be trusted to enact the ‘America First’ agenda he...

    During MSNBC’s election coverage on Wednesday, host Katy Tur raised the possibility of Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman (D), who just won the state’s U.S. Senate election, being a nominee for president at some point in the future, although she acknowledged there are “some variables, obviously.” Tur said, “Fetterman, as a nominee, at some point, for president, I know there are some variables, obviously. Just a few. But I just — you know, what he did in the super red, deep red parts of Pennsylvania and the way that he ran ahead of Biden…ran ahead of Trump, I mean, it...

    Former Attorney General Bill Barr said Thursday on Newsmax TV’s “Spicer & Co.” that former President Donald Trump should not be the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential nominee. Barr said, “Maybe your audience doesn’t want to hear this, but Trump ran weaker than the Republican ticket in Arizona, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania — 75,000 Republicans went to the polls and voted straight Republican ticket in Arizona and didn’t vote for him, 60,000 in Wisconsin, 60,000 and Pennsylvania. That’s why he lost the election.”
  • Biden Nominee Argued Against Free Speech Near Abortion Clinics

    Suppose your state legislature were to pass a law declaring that people who share her point of view may not approach and speak to people on public sidewalks outside stores that sell products made in China. Would that comply with the First Amendment, which denies government the power to make any law "abridging the freedom of speech"? resident Joe Biden's nominee to replace Justice Stephen Breyer on the Supreme Court argued in a federal court case that the government can in fact restrict the freedom of speech on a public sidewalk -- in the vicinity of an abortion clinic. In...

    With all the attention directed to resident Joe Biden's commitment to nominate a Black woman to replace retiring Associate Justice Stephen Breyer on the Supreme Court, sadly lost is what we expect from our court and what we expect from our nation. If we have detached from what our nation supposedly is about, what idea could we possibly have about what its top judiciary body is supposed to be about? But this is what is happening. The American ideal that a just society is a free society is disappearing into the wind. And replacing it is the progressive idea that...

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) showed how fragile Democrat Joe Biden’s Judicial nominees really are with an embarrassing exchange between Cruz and Biden’s pick to rule over landmark legal cases. A video snippet of the smackdown made some great political theater- and, more importantly, really shows the viewing public the left’s agenda to promote radical activist judges to dismantle the civil liberties of American citizens. “She couldn’t even answer a simple question,” filmmaker and political pundit Dinesh D’Souza said about the video clip he posted of the Cruz wreckage.On Tuesday at a Senate hearing, Cruz asked radical nominee Kenly Kiya Kato...
