Punchbowl News reported on Thursday that McCarthy “helped tweak and build support for” some of the key provisions conservative members proposed in the “internal GOP conference debate” on Wednesday.

    ...Texas voting law previously banned wearing political shirts of any kind to the polls. But a group of firefighters in Houston took the clothing rule to court in 2018 after they were asked to leave a polling location for wearing T-shirts that supported a proposition that didn’t appear on the ballot that year. After a lengthy legal battle, the federal judge ruled in favor of the firefighters. Now, voters are allowed to wear political shirts supporting a candidate or measure — so long as they do not appear on the ballot in the current election. “For example, if somebody wants...

    Mayor Adams acknowledged Tuesday that his administration’s controversial migrant tent camp in the Bronx may violate local right-to-shelter rules that have tripped him up several times this summer as the city struggles to accommodate waves of Latin American asylum seekers. The decadesold right-to-shelter law requires the city to provide a bed to anyone who needs one, and also stipulates certain benchmark amenities, such as a set amount of space between beds and access to lockers, laundry and mail services. Amid an enormous influx of migrants in recent months, Adams has repeatedly said his administration must “reassess” the law, though he...

On August 13, 2021, the Canadian government announced that anyone who hadn’t been vaccinated against Covid would soon be barred from planes and trains. In many cases, The Backward could no longer travel between provinces or leave the country.

    The United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) on Monday ruled in a 5-4 opinion against an illegal alien who sought to appeal his order for deportation before a federal appellate court. Pankajkumar Patel, an illegal alien from India who arrived in the U.S. with his wife in the 1990s, applied for discretionary adjustment of status with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency in 2007. The adjustment of status would have rewarded Patel and his wife with green cards.

    Airports have been the main stages for security and hygiene "theater.". Bureaucrats cling to power. It’s their institutional predisposition. So it was no surprise on Wednesday when the Department of Justice appealed the recent Federal court ruling that struck down the mask mandate imposed on mass transportation by the Centers for Disease Control. As the appeal demonstrates, governments are especially reluctant to give up emergency powers. When they do, the relinquishment is grudging and only partial. That is a big reason why big government keeps getting bigger. As economist Robert Higgs showed in his book Crisis and Leviathan, since the...

A group of Orthodox Jewish New Yorkers and a Catholic businessman have dropped their lawsuit against the city’s vaccine passport program after the restrictions were lifted last week. The group of five Orthodox Jews, which include a rabbi, along with one Catholic, filed a federal lawsuit against New York Democratic Mayor Eric Adams and his health commissioner last month over the city’s COVID-19 “vaccine passport” program, dubbed “Key to NYC.” The group called the vaccine passports “discriminatory and unconstitutional” and said it was an “unprecedented abuse of power”...
