  • Supreme Court Rejects Biden’s OSHA Vaccine Mandate on Private Employers; Upholds CMS Mandate

    Breitbart ^ | 13 Jan 2022 | JOEL B. POLLAK
    The U.S. Supreme Court blocked President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate on large private businesses through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on Thursday, but upheld a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) mandate. The decision on the OSHA mandate was 6-3; the decision on the CMS mandate was 5-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh joining the court’s three Democratic appointees in upholding it. As Breitbart News reported last week, the Court had appeared skeptical of the mandates during oral arguments, especially the OSHA mandate, as Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar struggled to identify the statutory...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is widely being discussed as a potential 2024 candidate for Republicans -- and he's doing little to knock down that chatter. And, his state of the state speech on Tuesday gave us all a preview of how DeSantis would run if he runs. "Florida has become the escape hatch for those chafing under authoritarian, arbitrary and seemingly never-ending mandates and restrictions," DeSantis said, adding that Florida was now "the freest state in these United States." DeSantis repeatedly touted his willingness to buck so-called conventional wisdom during his first term -- particularly when it came to dealing...

    Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) tore into Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday after the Texas senator asked a Justice Department official if the FBI played a role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Cruz asked during a Senate hearing on domestic terrorism, “How many FBI agents or confidential informants actively participated in the events of Jan. 6?” Jill Sanborn, the executive assistant director for the FBI’s National Security Branch, responded that she could not comment. Cruz pressed Sanborn repeatedly on the issue and later asked:

    The FBI, DOJ, and now the January 6th committee really don’t want to talk about Ray Epps.Today, Ted Cruz caused great triggering by asking some FBI flack named Jill Sanborn about Epps during today’s Senate hearing. Cruz attempted to get answers on exactly what the suspicious man’s role was regarding the Capitol breach, and why he was never charged with anything. What he got was a mix of non-denials and obfuscations in the form of claiming she couldn’t answer the question.The interest in Epps stems from two things. One, he was caught on video inciting people to riot and break...

    "This week saw the one year anniversary of a violent mob attacking Congress. On the night of the ugly January 6, 2021 riot, Alec Baldwin, who later in the year would accidentally shoot and kill a filmmaker on the set of a movie, viciously tweeted, “Put Ted Cruz in the stocks and throw rotten fruit and buckets of horse piss at him. Then ride him on a rail. Then tar and feather him. And film it. For Netflix.” This wasn’t the only time the hypocritical actor would call for violence against his political opponents, while decrying it elsewhere. On December...
  • Will Cruz Be Right About the Democrats' New Impeachment Precedent?

    Sen. Ted Cruz created angst among Democrats when he kicked off the new year saying if Republicans recapture the House, resident Joe Biden could be impeached based on the standard Democrats established themselves. “The Democrats weaponized impeachment,” the Texas senator said. The central warning in “Abuse of Power,” was that applying impeachment without a demonstrable crime, the political equivalent of the death penalty, and nullifying an election should not occur—nor should the attempt thereof even if there is no chance of a Senate conviction. “The more you weaponize it and turn it into a partisan cudgel, you know, what’s good...

Big patriot? In fact, Cross is a big fan of Critical Race Theory and Nikole Hannah-Jones' 1619 Project, which cast racism at the heart of America's founding and current character. With patriots like these, who needs America haters?...

The Texas senator discussed the protests in an exchange with Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger during a Senate Rules Committee oversight hearing. Cruz has defined the violent protests on Capitol Hill as...
