    Sen. Tammy Baldwin may have flouted New York’s COVID restrictions on a taxpayer-funded trip to Gotham in late 2020, according to a new report. Baldwin (D-Wis.), 61, traveled to the Big Apple Nov. 5-9, 2020, as COVID-19 cases were on the rise nationwide and days before the senator herself urged Americans to “just stay home,” according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The newspaper found Baldwin’s constituents paid $630 for her to fly from Madison to New York, where her partner, Maria Brisbane, lives and works as a private wealth adviser. The senator filed an expense report covering the period from...
  • EXCLUSIVE: Two thirds of Americans say Joe Biden broke 'foreign agent' rules by helping son Hunter's business dealings, a poll shows as impeachment net tightens

    Americans by wide margins say President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, violated a law against peddling foreign influence, a poll shows, amid swirling allegations about the first family's business dealings. Fully 63 percent of voters say the president breached the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), which obliges people to declare foreign interests, when he served as vice president and his son worked with the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma. Another 29 percent said they did not believe Biden, a Democrat, had broken the rules, and 8 percent were not sure. Republican voters overwhelmingly said Biden had committed wrongdoing, as...

  • Biden administration proposes new rules to push insurers to boost mental health coverage

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | July 26, 2023 | The Associated Press
    WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden on Tuesday announced that his administration is moving forward with new rules meant to push insurance companies to increase their coverage of mental health treatments. The new regulations, which still need to go through a public comment period, would require insurers to study whether their customers have equal access to medical and mental health benefits and to take remedial action, if necessary. The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act requires that insurers provide the same level of coverage for both mental and physical health care — though the administration and advocates argue insurers' policies...
  • They keep changing the rules for Trump's trial

    So today we witnessed the next chapter in the spectacle of the DOJ’s ongoing efforts to “Get Trump” by whatever means necessary. This is all unfolding in Miami, where the former President is facing more than three dozen charges allegedly related to classified documents that he kept in Mar-A-Lago after leaving office. But one element of the initial hearing was changed at the last minute. The media had been throwing fits that the random selection of the judge in the trial went to Aileen Cannon, a Trump appointee. So at first glance, it seemed a bit odd that the arraignment...
  • Schumer rips 'MAGA' Supreme Court after 9-0 vote on EPA waters rule (only 7.66 years left)

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., slammed the Supreme Court's ruling Thursday that limited the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to regulate bodies of water, calling it a "MAGA" court even though the decision was 9-0. On Thursday, the high court issued an opinion that narrowed the EPA's broad definition of Waters of the United States (WOTUS). The court said the federal government must define WOTUS as a water source with a "continuous surface connection" to major bodies of water. The decision upended an attempt by the Biden administration to regulate wetlands, lakes, ponds, streams and other "relatively permanent" waterways, which...
  • White House Unveils Rules Targeting Journalists Who Refuse To Be ‘Professional’ (Big Media a security risk?)

    Daily Caller via MSN ^ | 5/06/23 | Diana Glebova
    The White House released new requirements Friday outlining which journalists are allowed in the briefing room and presidential events, and warning about unprofessional behavior. The new rules require journalists to submit a letter to gain access to the White House grounds with information about their employment, mandating that reporters work for “an organization whose principal business is news dissemination.” The rule change comes as the administration has been facing repeated outbursts in the briefing room from reporters like Simon Ateba, and comes days after World Press Freedom Day. Journalists have called out White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre for not...

    Does this sound familiar to you, the public? In May 1919, at Dusseldorf, Germany, Allied forces captured a very significant document: “Communist Rules for Revolution.” As you read these “rules” now, over 100 years later, keep in mind what you are reading and hearing every day in the news media: A. Corrupt the young; get them away from religion. Get them interested in sex. Make them superficial; destroy their ruggedness. B. Get control of all means of publicity, thereby: 1. Get people’s minds off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books, plays and other trivialities. 2. Divide...

    Speaker Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) appointed two of his conservative critics to the House Rules Committee on Monday following this month’s protracted Speaker’s race, when the GOP leader agreed to increase the number of hard-line Republicans on the panel. McCarthy appointed GOP Reps. Ralph Norman (S.C.) and Chip Roy (Texas) to the powerful panel, giving them a seat on the committee that controls how bills are debated on the House floor after the pair voted against McCarthy’s Speakership bid on the first 11 ballots earlier this month.

    ...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...
