  • Federal judge rules $1.7 trillion spending bill passed by Congress in 2022 is unconstitutional

    A Lubbock, Texas federal judge ruled Tuesday that lawmakers unconstitutionally passed the $1.7 trillion government funding bill in 2022 when they did so under a pandemic-era rule allowing members of the U.S. House of Representatives to vote on the matter by proxy instead of in person. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, requested the courts to block a provision of the funding bill that gave pregnant workers stronger legal protections. U.S. District Judge Wesley Hendrix reviewed the request and gave a "limited" ruling on one of two provisions Paxton sought to have blocked. Hendrix, who was appointed by former...

    Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) certainly felt a sense of validation and victory on Tuesday when U.S. District Judge James Hendrix ruled that the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023 violated the Quorum Clause included in Article 1 Section 5 of the Constitution. The act was sent to President Joe Biden on December 28, 2022, and he signed it the next day. The state of Texas had brought the case against Attorney General Merrick Garland and others, with the trial taking place in January of this year. According to a press release from Roy's office, this was "the first time in American...

    Former President Donald Trump has confirmed that six Republicans are on his shortlist for a potential running mate and vice president at a town hall on Monday. In his first hint at who could be his Vice President if he wins the election in November, Trump's list included two former opponents and an ex-Democrat. Trump, 77, confirmed Florida Governor and one-time foil Ron DeSantis, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, and Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina are all among the ex-rivals being considered. South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, Florida Republican Byron Donalds, and former Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard are on his shortlist....
  • Trump Must Pay Half a Billion Dollars Before He Can Appeal New York Decision

    Former President Donald Trump must pay nearly half a billion dollars as a bond to New York State before he can appeal the ruling by Judge Arthur Engoron last week that he must pay $354 million in fines — over $450 million, with interest — for fraud. Critics have noted that Trump is the only person ever to be sued under an obscure New York fraud statute that does not require any harm be done, and that effectively criminalizes the everyday practice of real estate valuations in negotiations with banks. Though Attorney General Letitia James — who ran for office...

    In an unusual session held on Super Bowl Sunday, the US Senate voted to move forward a substantial $95 billion aid package that will support Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, with no southern border security provisions. The package includes $60 billion for Ukraine and $14 billion for Israel. The vote garnered support from RINOs, with a final tally of 67-27.According to The Hill, Schumer offered Republicans the chance to vote on amendments in exchange for expediting the legislative process.“By a vote of 67-27, The Senate invoked cloture on Murray substitute amendment 1388 to H.R.815, legislative vehicle for supplemental appropriations,” the Senate...

    A trio of senators on Sunday released a bipartisan immigration agreement with the White House that would give the president far-reaching powers to clamp down on unlawful border crossings, including the authority to turn away migrants without allowing them to request asylum. The President always had the power. That’s the first lie. Saying the President pivoted is the next lie. It’s an appearance of a pivot to get funding for foreign nations while giving very little to the USA. It’s also throwing a lifeline to Joe Biden to help him get elected. CBS claims it restricts the asylum system. It...
  • Federal Court Rules Trudeau's Response to Truckers was Illegal...

    In a stunning turn of events, the Federal Court has delivered a significant blow to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government by deeming the use of the Emergencies Act during the Freedom Convoy protests as unconstitutional. This ruling comes after two years of the Trudeau regime and media labeling the truckers as illegal, only to face a resounding judgment from the court. The saga began with Trudeau and the regime media consistently referring to the truckers as illegal over the past two years. However, the tables turned dramatically when the Federal Court declared Trudeau's violent response during the protests as...

    It’s no joke. Humorous and quirky messages on electronic signs will soon disappear from highways and freeways across the country. The U.S. Federal Highway Administration has given states two years to implement all the changes outlined in its new 1,100-page manual released last month, including rules that spells out how signs and other traffic control devices are regulated. Administration officials said overhead electronic signs with obscure meanings, references to pop culture or those intended to be funny will be banned in 2026 because they can be misunderstood or distracting to drivers. The agency, which is part of the U.S. Department...

    The federal court set to hear Special Counsel Jack Smith’s case against former President Donald Trump has told the lawyers to be prepared to answer questions on the constitutionality of Smith’s appointment. Ed Meese, former attorney general under President Reagan, filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the case against Trump on Tuesday, arguing that Attorney General Merrick Garland’s appointment of Smith — a private citizen — is in violation of the Appointments Clause of the Constitution "Not properly clothed in the authority of the federal government, Smith is a modern example of the naked emperor. Illegally appointed, he has no more...

    Former U.S. Attorney General Ed Meese has filed a Supreme Court brief arguing that Special Counsel Jack Smith has no legal authority to prosecute President Donald Trump. Meese, who served under President Ronald Reagan, argues that Smith’s appointment was illegal. According to Meese, Democrat President Joe Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland was not authorized by law to appoint a private citizen, like Smith, with the sweeping prosecutorial power he has been given. As such, Smith’s current petition for the Supreme Court to fast-track Trump’s January 6 immunity claims should be ignored. The amicus brief from Meese runs over 30 pages...

    Earlier this week, the Colorado State Supreme Court determined in a 4-3 ruling that Trump is ineligible under the 14th Amendment to appear on the ballot in the state. This nonsensical ruling essentially declares that even though Trump has never been convicted of, much less tried with sedition or participating in an insurrection, he is nevertheless guilty of such. The ruling is bound to be taken up by the Supreme Court, and experts on both sides of the aisle believe it will be promptly overturned. But that doesn't change the fact that four justices in the highest court in the...

    As Smith was hired directly by current AG Merrick Garland, the correct constitutional process of appointment by the President, and confirmation by the full U.S. Senate never took place. . . . the various legal actions undertaken by Smith under color of law “can be taken only by persons properly appointed as federal officers to properly created federal offices. Neither Smith nor the position of Special Counsel under which he purportedly acts meets those criteria. But perhaps the most damning and dismissive statement of Smith’s unconstitutional appointment comes from the text of the brief itself stating that “Not clothed in...

    The Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to ban former President Trump from the state’s primary ballot undermines a “bedrock principle” of American democracy, one of the court’s Democrat-appointed justices wrote in a fiery dissent. Justices Carlos Samour, Maria Berkenkotter and Chief Justice Brian D. Boatright all dissented, but Samour was particularly critical of the 4-3 ruling. Samour and Boatright were each appointed by Democratic former Gov. John Hickenlooper, while Berkenkotter was appointed by current Gov. Jared Polis, also a Democrat. “The decision to bar former President Donald J. Trump — by all accounts the current leading Republican presidential candidate (and reportedly...

    The Colorado Supreme Court has ruled that Donald Trump, who faces multiple criminal indictments including one alleging he conspired to overturn the results of the 2020 election, will not be allowed to remain on the ballot in the Mile High state in 2024. “A majority of the court holds that President Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution,” the Colorado Supreme Court said in their ruling on Tuesday. The ruling will be placed on hold until Jan. 4 pending any appeals. At oral arguments earlier this...

    On Tuesday, a judge in Harney County declared that the gun safety law Measure 114 passed by Oregon voters was unconstitutional. Circuit Court Judge Robert S. Raschio imposed a permanent injunction against Measure 114, essentially putting it on hold until further notice. Since M114 was narrowly approved by voters in November 2022 it has been pending in federal and state courts. Under the law a person must pass a gun safety course and have their criminal history checked before they can buy a gun. Also, magazines with a capacity greater than ten rounds are prohibited. Those in support of the...

    Democrats on the Boston City Council are looking to extend local voting rights to foreign nationals in the United States on visas, green cards, and other forms of legal status. Councilwoman Kendra Lara (D) introduced the measure, which would allow foreign nationals on green cards, visas, and other forms of legal status to vote in Boston municipal elections. The measure is likely to gain widespread support from the council, which is made up of 12 Democrats.

    Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) joined Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM Wednesday to defend his opposition to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-GA) resolution to impeach Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas. McClintock and seven other Republicans voted with Democrats Monday night to send Greene’s privileged resolution to the House Committee on Homeland Security, a procedural move that essentially killed the proposal. “It’s completely unconstitutional,” McClintock told host Mike Slater of Greene’s effort. “Impeachment is a very limited power to remove officials for, quote, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors…”

    He is preparing for an investiture vote which is expected to see him form a new government and avoid a repeat election. That can only happen if he can secure the parliamentary support of Catalan separatists. The Socialists were runners-up in July's general election, behind the conservative People's Party (PP). However, PP leader Alberto Núñez Feijóo failed to form a government in an investiture vote in September, receiving only the support of the far-right Vox out of the main parties. It is now Mr Sánchez's turn and he is close to securing enough parliamentary support to form a new administration...
