    LOS ANGELES (Oct. 4, 2022) — Two doctors have filed the first federal lawsuit to stop a new California law that shuts down doctors’ free speech rights by restricting the medical advice they can give patients regarding COVID-19. The law, signed on Friday by Governor Gavin Newsom, authorizes the Medical Board of California to pursue professional sanctions and even license revocation against doctors who share information about COVID-19 that challenges the “scientific consensus.” Mark McDonald, MD, a Los Angeles psychiatrist, and Jeff Barke, MD, an Orange County primary care physician, are represented by the Liberty Justice Center, a national nonprofit...

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has endorsed changes proposed by a bipartisan group of senators to the Electoral Count Act, the 1887 law that governs how Congress affirms presidential election results and a smooth transition of power. The Kentucky Republican’s support means the evenly split chamber almost certainly has the ability to pass the proposed modifications that are meant to prevent another Jan. 6, 2021, when pro-Trump rioters temporarily halted the certification process and some GOP lawmakers contested the results from states that voted for President Biden. “I’ll proudly support the legislation, provided that nothing more than technical changes are...

    On Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed a bill to alter the 1887 Electoral Count Act. The so called "Presidential Election Reform Act" revises rules pertaining to the congressional certification of presidential elections, which some contend will benefit Democrats. The bill was sponsored by Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), who lost her primary race in August and leaves office on January 3, along with Democrat Rep. Zoe Lofgren, both of whom are on the January 6 Committee. [cut] Extending elections Among the changes this bill makes to the 135-year-old law is an extension of time for a presidential election.

    The House pushed ahead Wednesday with legislation that would revamp the rules for certifying the results of a presidential election as lawmakers accelerate their response to the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection and Donald Trump’s failed attempt to remain in power. The legislation would overhaul an arcane 1800s-era statute known as the Electoral Count Act that governs, along with the U.S. Constitution, how states and Congress certify electors and declare presidential election winners. The House planned a vote on the bill after afternoon debate. […] The legislation intends to ensure that future Jan. 6 sessions are “as the constitution envisioned, a...

    A Delaware judge ruled Wednesday that a new vote-by-mail law enacted earlier this year is unconstitutional and that voting by mail cannot be used in the November election. Vice Chancellor Nathan Cook ruled that the law, the result of legislation that Democrats rammed through the General Assembly in less than three weeks this past June, violates a provision in Delaware’s constitution that spells out the circumstances under which a person is allowed to cast an absentee ballot. “Our Supreme Court and this court have consistently stated that those circumstances are exhaustive,” Cook wrote. “Therefore, as a trial judge, I am...

    American Thinker ^ | 15 Sep, 2022 | Andrea Widburg
    We need to understand that all the persecution and prosecution we’re seeing now is intended to elicit a violent response. The brilliant Julie Kelly has a great essay summarizing the Biden administration’s accelerating persecution and prosecution of Republicans who dared question a bizarre presidential election that broke with all norms going back more than two centuries. Kelly believes, as I do, that this is going to end with Donald Trump’s indictment. My guess is the indictment will take place before the election because Democrats want to trigger a violent response that will justify halting the elections and, possibly, imposing some...

    Vice President Kamala Harris said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that if Democrats win two more seats in the U.S. Senate, they will remove the filibuster rule to pass abortion and voting legislation. Harris said, “In less than two months, we are looking at a midterm election in which so much is on the line. Take, for example, the issue of choice. The United States Supreme Court in the Dobbs decision just took away a constitutional right that had been recognized from the women of America from the people of America.”

    Decision comes a week after New York and California asked American Express, Mastercard and Visa to support a merchant category code. The international organization responsible for creating merchant category codes for credit card purchases has given its approval to establish one for transactions made at gun stores. The International Organization for Standardization’s Registration and Maintenance Management Group met on Wednesday to discuss a request made by Amalgamated Bank to set up such a code. An ISO spokesperson told The Center Square that RMMG members could not decide whether to approve the application. That elevated the discussion to the ISO leadership...

    Former Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker on Thursday slammed the man who he succeeded, saying former AG Bill Barr's recent embrace of the Justice Department raid on Donald Trump flew in the face of all the wrongdoing he himself exposed in the discredited Russia collusion case. "Bill Barr continues for some reason to be an institutionalist when it comes to the Department of Justice, even though based on what he presided over, he should know better," Whitaker said on the Thursday edition of Just the News, Not Noise. "We have seen far too many examples as it relates to Donald...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (WSPA) – A South Carolina court has ruled that the electric chair and firing squad are unconstitutional and the state cannot execute inmates by those methods. In Tuesday’s ruling, Circuit Court Judge Jocelyn Newman ruled that both methods of execution are cruel and unusual punishment, in violation of the South Carolina Constitution. “In 2021, South Carolina turned back the clock and became the only state in the country in which a person may be forced into the electric chair if he refuses to elect how he will die,” Newman wrote in her ruling. “In doing so, the General...
  • Zombie Media Cartel Bill Back and Worse Than Ever: Would Strengthen Legacy Media, Punish Anti-Establishment Outlets

    A new version of the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) is circulating that is worse than the original. It allows mainstream, legacy and left-wing media to form exclusionary media cartels and then empowers them with extraordinary collective-bargaining power to collude with Big Tech companies. The amendments serve only to spell out in greater specificity how to exclude conservative and anti-establishment media from any alleged benefits. Specifically, the new JCPA contains a provision that allows “eligible” media companies forming a cartel to “create admission criteria for membership unrelated to the size of an eligible digital journalism provider or the views...

The FBI recovered 11 sets of classified documents in the search, according to the documents.

There he apparently didn’t say much other than that he was asserting his Fifth Amendment...

    Inflation has been taking its toll on retirees, especially those who rely solely on Social Security. But have no fear, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and seven Democratic cosponsors recently introduced S. 4365, the Social Security Expansion Act, a bill to enhance Social Security benefits and ensure the long-term solvency of the Social Security program. If this bill passes, retirees 62 and over would start to receive an additional $200 a month in benefits beginning in January 2023. Most retirees rely heavily on Social Security benefits, and for some it’s their only source of income. Currently, Americans will stop receiving their...

    Joe Biden on Friday will sign an executive order boosting protections for abortions rights - a move that come two weeks after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and after the president was criticized for not doing enough. The order will push to safeguard access to abortion medication and emergency contraception and to add more protections for patient privacy. Biden will also direct the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services to push back on efforts to limit the ability of women to access abortion medication or to travel across state lines to receive abortion services. And the...
