    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...

    Progressives Blow Up the Framers’ Constitution.Despite the lessons of history, Progressives promote ever more democracy, which, unless tempered and limited, is like turning one’s household over to the majority rule of teenagers. Is this household arrangement fair? Sure. It is also idiocy which no parent would consider. A senate of the states and not the parchment barriers of the Constitution stood athwart democratic rule by social justice emotions little different from those of the typical teenager.What was the 17th Amendment (17A) supposed to do? The post-17A senate was to respond to the people’s needs and free the senate from corruption...

    Republican Nebraska Gov. Jim Pillen appointed his immediate predecessor Pete Ricketts on Thursday to serve two years of the term vacated by former Sen. Ben Sasse.“Gov. Ricketts assured me that no matter who calls for a different job, he is committed to the United States Senate,” Pillen said at a press conference. “No matter who calls him to be a vice president of the United States, who calls him to be … Secretary of State or any other thing, he’s committed to this seat; and he and Susanne have committed to winning elections at a minimum of 10 years, and...

    Nebraska Gov. Jim Pillen (R) appointed his predecessor, former Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts (R), to fill the state’s U.S. Senate seat, vacated by former Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) in January. Term limits rendered Ricketts unable to run for reelection. Being appointed to the position was widely expected after he said he intended to seek an application for consideration for the appointment following Pillen’s announcement that he would “seek qualified applicants” to fill the upcoming vacancy. Sasse, a two-term senator, left his U.S. Senate seat to become the president of the University of Florida. He officially resigned from the Senate on...

    Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) announced her candidacy for U.S. Senate in 2024 on Tuesday as she eyes 89-year-old Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) seat, which has been occupied since 1992. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times last month, Feinstein said she intends to complete her term but is weighing whether she will retire or seek reelection in 2024. Though the oldest member of Congress, who has reportedly had issues with forgetfulness, has yet to announce a decision, the more progressive Porter is amping up the pressure with her campaign announcement video on social media. California needs a warrior in...

    It didn't take long after Sasse's announcement for names to start rolling in to be his replacement. The first to announce their application was a retired Air Force Lt. Colonel who first hit Nebraska's political scene when he challenged Mike Flood in this year's CD1 primary. "My oath did not expire so I'm driving forward to continue my service to my country and my community. For the constitution and the folks of Nebraska, to serve them," said Retired Lt. Colonel John Glen Weaver. While his experience in politics is limited Weaver believes his extensive career in the military, which included...

    Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., an outspoken critic of former President Donald Trump, officially resigned from the Senate on Sunday as he prepares to step back into academia as president of the University of Florida. Sasse, who led Midland University, a small private collage in his home state, prior to running for Senate, submitted his resignation last month saying that he would leave office Jan. 8 — two years into his second term. Sasse's departure opens up the seat to an appointment from Nebraska Gov. Jim Pillen, a Republican. The state's previous governor, Republican Pete Ricketts, has said he would seek...

    Progressives Blow Up the Framers’ Constitution.In continuance of the Senate of the States series the next three squibs leave the Federal Convention and visit the decades leading to the destructive 17th Amendment (17A).The 17A triggered a cascade of stunning downwind consequences perhaps only second to the immediate post-Civil War amendments. As opposed to the 13th – 15th Amendments which reset society, the 17A reset our republican governing form. Overnight, the 17A transformed the Framers’ exquisite compound democratic/federal structure into a democratic form deadly to republics.1Why the 17th Amendment? What enormous forces convinced the people, states and congress to trade a...

    Ditching his signature black hoodie and shorts for a dark gray suit on Tuesday, John Fetterman was sworn in as the junior senator from Pennsylvania. Video recorded at the event showed the newly minted senator frequently looking to his ambitious wife, Gisele, for direction.When Vice President Kamala Harris congratulated him, Fetterman uttered only a curt thank you and a quick handshake.In the clip below, Fetterman barely moves or acknowledges what is going on around him. His wife is seen handling the interactions and calling all the shots.Fetterman doesn’t even know what planet he’s on 🤣— Hodgetwins (@hodgetwins) January 3,...

    Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon, as Milton Friedman, the economist and intellectual author of the Reagan Revolution used to explain. Which means that when Federal Reserve prints out more cash to shell out for bigger and bigger government programs, look out. Inflation is on the way. Don't take this from me, this time. It's now what one of President Obama's top economic advisors is now warning as Joe Biden gets ready to sign the $1.7 trillion Omnibus bill passed by Congress, including 18 skeevy Republicans: On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Steve Rattner, who served as...

    There’s bad news and there’s good news for Washington’s anti-monopoly movement. The bad news is that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has done precisely what many long feared he would: While rhetorically supporting two bipartisan antitrust bills targeting Big Tech for months, he effectively killed the effort by never bringing the legislative package for a vote on the Senate floor in the final days of the congressional term.... .....As a consolation, Schumer put an extra $85 million into the nation’s two antitrust enforcement agencies: $50 million to the Federal Trade Commission and $35 million to the Department of Justice’s Antitrust...

    A large contingent of Republican senators completed their betrayal of Republicans and of the American people on Thursday afternoon, voting to pass a massive $1.7 trillion omnibus package.The bill had been widely maligned, partially because it contained nothing to help secure the US border while providing another $45 billion in aid to Ukraine. It also included provisions funding LGBT “pride centers” and numerous other boondoggles the government has no business being involved in.Despite the outcry, though, Republicans in the US Senate soldiered forward to stab their voters in the back, and now, we have their names.BREAKING: Here are the 18...

    The Senate on Tuesday evening voted 70-25 to advance the $1.7 trillion Omnibus spending bill and open debate. This is just the first procedural vote. The latest spending bill is full of special interest earmarks and pork. The bill includes $45 billion to Ukraine, $7.5 million in LGBTQ programs, Jan 6 prosecution funding and more. There is no money for border security. 3,000 pages that no one has read. Senate Republicans are giving away the incoming GOP Majority House’s power of the purse until September 2023.

    CNN hosted Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for a dinner and joint interview at Hunan Dynasty. CNN reporter Jamie Gangel led the conversation. Gangel: “I want to talk about how the two of you navigated working with former President Trump.” With a chilling giggle, Schumer replied: “We had a good time.” Gangel: “Was there a strategy when you went into a meeting? Was there a good cop/bad cop?” Pelosi: "So I’m thinking, ‘How is he going to begin?’ Is he going to quote the Constitution, American history, [a] poet, the Bible?” Mocking Trump, Pelosi continued: “‘You know, I won the...

    The U.S. Senate on Dec. 15 passed a one-week spending bill to keep the government open as negotiations over a larger spending bill for fiscal year 2023 continue.The bill, known in legislative parlance as a “continuing resolution,” passed the upper chamber in a 71-19 vote.The passage of the bill came less than 36 hours before the government was set to shut down.The short-term measure gives lawmakers more time to work out the details of a larger omnibus spending package for FY 2023. However, such a measure could face trouble in passing.Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has expressed openness to...

It is a simple, legal truth.With the signing of the “Respect for Marriage Act” into law, if you do not accept or affirm same-sex “marriage,” you are now in the same category as a racist. And you can be assured that this will be used as a weapon against you in the days to come.How can I make such statements?Let me remind you of the exact language of the bill, beginning with the opening words: “This act provides statutory authority for same-sex and interracial marriages.”I have already discussed the reasons why this language was...
