    From the website, updated as of November 23, 2022 Background ~ Loy, Raland, Deron and Gaynor Brunson (the brothers) witnessed the 2020 election along with claims from members of congress that the election was rigged. What got their attention was when the proposition to investigate those claims was presented to Congress and put to a vote. What came as a shock to the four brothers is when they discovered that 387 members of Congress along with VP Mike Pence actually voted against the proposed investigation, thus thwarting the investigation. Whether the election was rigged or not was no longer...

    During my junior year in college, 1960–1961, I took the Constitutional Law course given by Dean Leonard W. Levy, one of the country's foremost con law scholars. In addition to his immense store of knowledge, he acknowledged the wisdom of common sense, noting that the response to Supreme Court decisions may depend on whose ox is gored. And he advised his students, in writing papers, "Strike while the iron is hot." This New York Times headline, the lead story for November 23, has gotten my iron hot — and dander up. The print edition headline for the story:"JUSTICES DECIDE /...

    Since Election Day, I have been engaging in conversations about the political state of the country. In the face of the failed prediction of a red tsunami, many (both on the right and the left) are blaming the Republicans themselves for the disappointing results. Specifically, the two main culprits receiving most of the blame are Donald Trump and the right's pro-life stance (i.e., the Roe reversal). They say that in light of the failure of MAGA policies to win voters, it is now time to leave Trump and the MAGA Republicans behind and move on with more successful strategies. But...

    There was much liberal gnashing of teeth when Donald Trump appointed Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Libs feared that those Justices would do Donald Trump's bidding without question. But it hasn't turned out that way, as underlined in the brief, unanimous decision just issued by the Court clearing the way for the IRS to turn over Trump's tax returns to the Democrat-controlled House. In reaction, Joe Scarborough went on a long spiel on today's Morning Joe, hailing the Court's conservative Justices. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected former President Donald Trump's last-ditch plea to block the release of his tax records to House Democrats, paving the way for their possible disclosure to the lawmakers. The decision by the court in a brief order noting no dissenting votes means the committee can try to access the documents ahead of the Republican take-over of the House in January. The committee, however, has not said how quickly it expects to get the documents. Upon taking control, Republicans are expected to withdraw the request. Earlier this month, Chief Justice John Roberts temporarily blocked...

    The special counsel named by the Biden administration to investigate Donald Trump oversaw a Justice Department unit rebuked by the Supreme Court for its prosecution of a prominent Republican and was linked by Congress to the IRS scandal that targeted conservative groups. Jack Smith, a war crimes prosecutor in The Hague and former chief of the DOJ public integrity section, was named Friday by Attorney General Merrick Garland to take over two investigations of Trump related to Jan. 6 and classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago. In 2014, the House Oversight Committee concluded that during Smith's earlier stint at DOJ he...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration plans to ask the Supreme Court to reinstate the president’s student debt cancellation plan, according to a Thursday legal filing warning that Americans will face financial strain if the plan remains stalled in court when loan payments are scheduled to restart in January. The Justice Department is fighting to keep Biden’s plan alive after it was halted by two federal courts in recent weeks. Keeping the debt relief on hold would leave the government with an “unnecessarily perilous choice,” the administration argued in its filing Thursday. If it restarts student loan payments as planned...

    An Idaho Democrat who carried an endorsement from Planned Parenthood learned that the hard way last week after initial reports from election night showed she had won a state House seat that covers parts of three counties, only for one of the counties to learn that those initial reports were incorrect. And the GOP came out on top after all. According to the Idaho Capital Sun, a nonprofit outlet, Democrat Karma Metzler Fitzgerald at first appeared to have won the race for House District 26, Seat B, which represents parts of Blaine, Jerome and Lincoln counties in the south-central part...

    President Joe Biden made news when he said he wasn't confident in codifying abortion rights legislation Monday, but he seemed to regret saying it, telling a reporter that he "shouldn't have answered" his question. At the end of a solo press conference in Indonesia, after Biden took pre-planned questions from several reporters, NBC's Peter Alexander shouted out whether Americans could expect anything in Congress "as it relates to abortion rights." "I don’t think they can expect much of anything other than we’re going to maintain our positions. I’m not going to get into more questions. I shouldn’t have even answered...

    Biden’s big pitch for the midterm elections was the promise that, if Democrats won two more seats in the Senate and held the House, they would codify Roe v. Wade into law.Well, they’ve failed to do that. With a runoff election in Georgia, the best they can hope for is a 51-seat majority in the Senate, and this morning both NBC News and the Daily Caller are projecting that Republicans have flipped the House.Related: Biden’s Desperate Midterm Hail Mary: Give Me Two More Senators and I Promise I’ll Let You Kill Your BabyOn Monday, six days after Election Day, Biden...

The president made the issue of legalizing abortion nationwide a critical part of his midterm campaign message.

Then he took questions from a preapproved list of reporters: “I’m happy to take questions and I’m told there will be four questioners.” Republicans may retake the House of Representatives after a lack-luster performance in the 2022 midterm elections so Biden prepared the Gen Zers for another let down. “I don’t think there’s enough votes to codify [Roe] unless something happens unusual in the House,” Biden said. Democrat voters got played again! Biden promised Gen Z he was going to give them a student bailout and codify Roe v...

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday declined to block the release of Arizona Republican Party Chair Kelli Ward’s phone records to the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. The justices rejected an emergency request filed by Ward, meaning that phone records associated with her T-Mobile cellphone will be disclosed to the House committee. Two conservative justices, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, noted in the brief order that they would have granted the application. Liberal Justice Elena Kagan last month temporarily prevented the subpoena from being enforced while the justices weighed what steps to take. Ward...

    By Thanksgiving we'll have a GOP House majority. By mid-December, we may have a GOP 51-49 Senate majority or another 50-50 situation. Not a bad wave if it turns out that way. How much of a role did abortion play in this election? The Democrats want you to think that it was the dam that stopped the red wave. It really wasn't, as Catherine Glenn Foster wrote:If anything was less impressive on election night than the “red wave,” it was the abortion wave. Blue states protected abortion rights as expected, but public officials who supported or enforced limits on abortion...

    Residents of the Big Apple have plenty to fear these days. Violent crime is one of those things. In fact, it is probably the most important thing. Just this past week, a man was arguing with a woman in a subway station in the Bronx. During the argument, the woman pushed the man into a group of three other men, who slashed his face with an ice pick. An ice pick? I thought those were only used by Victorian-era serial killers and psychopaths in movies. Where does one even get an ice pick these days? Last Friday, a woman who...

    Yesterday’s Midterms were not a victory for conservative or progressive ideology, but an assertion of the growing power of geography in American politics. It was less a national election than a clash of civilisations. Virtually nowhere in blue areas did Republicans make gains. Both the north-east and California – the central players in Democratic Party politics – stayed solidly blue. Even the most well-regarded GOP candidates, such as Lanhee Chen who ran for California state controller, struggled to make inroads in Democratic territory. Meanwhile, the senators and governors of the leading red states – Texas’s Greg Abbott, Georgia’s Brian Kemp,...
