"The two enemies of the people are criminals and Government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first." -- Thomas Jefferson
The Biden administration's plan to discharge billions of dollars of student loan debt has been in limbo for months, blocked by lower courts and awaiting a decision from the conservative-majority Supreme Court.
The plan, which would provide up to $20,000 in debt relief to 43 million eligible people, is a significant political pledge made by President Joe Biden to energize younger voters. However, the Supreme Court has expressed skepticism about the administration's authority to forgive such a large amount of student debt, and the plan's fate now rests in the hands of the justices.
The court is set to rule on two cases related to the debt relief plan, among 30 other cases in its current term. The conservative justices have doubts about the plan's legality, which was announced by Biden in August and originally scheduled to take effect last fall. The challengers argue that the proposal violates the Constitution and federal law, partly because it circumvents Congress, which they say has the sole power to create laws related to student loan forgiveness.
Senator Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat from California, reportedly displayed confusion last year while observing Vice President Kamala Harris presiding over the Senate for a tie-breaking vote.
According to The New York Times, Feinstein, who is 89 years old, appeared unaware during one voting of why Harris, who had previously broken numerous ties, was taking up her role as President of the Senate. A witness in the report said Feinstein allegedly asked colleagues, "What is she doing here?"
With the Senate evenly split in a 50-50 majority for the first two years of the Biden administration, Democrats needed every member of their party plus Harris' tie-breaking vote to approve many bills and nominations. However, Feinstein's deteriorating memory was well-documented last year, with some lawmakers and former aides telling the San Francisco Chronicle that she can no longer fulfill her duties and represent California's nearly 40 million people without substantial assistance from aides.
A COVID-19 outbreak unfolded at a conference organized by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), even though the majority of attendees had been vaccinated.
About 1,800 CDC staffers and others gathered in April in a hotel in Atlanta, where the CDC is headquartered, for a conference focused on epidemiological investigations and strategies.
On April 27th, the final day of the conference, multiple people informed organizers that they had tested positive for COVID-19.
Children of certain ages who received Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine face an elevated risk of heart inflammation, according to a new federally funded study.
Vaccinated children aged 12 to 17 face a heightened risk of myocarditis, a form of heart inflammation, and a related condition called pericarditis, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) researchers found.
The number of myocarditis and pericarditis events in that age group met the threshold for a safety signal, the researchers reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association on May 22.
Republicans, and even some democrats, warned how the expiration of Title 42 would cause a surge of migrants at the southern border. In New York City, more parents are refusing to drop their children off at some of the city’s public schools that are being used to shelter asylum seekers. One America’s Stephanie Myers speaks with the founder of the Guardian Angels and former republican mayoral candidate for New York City, Curtis Sliwa, about the matter.
The FBI has one day to turn over an internal document that Republicans claim shows President Joe Biden was involved in a $5 million 'criminal' scheme with a foreign national or else contempt of Congress proceedings will begin.
The internal unclassified FD-1023 form apparently details an 'arrangement' for an exchange of money for policy decisions , the Republicans have said and issued a subpoena for last month.
FBI Director Chris Wray was given a hard deadline of May 30 to hand over the unclassified FD-1023 document, or the House Oversight Committee led by Rep. James Comer said it will 'initiate contempt of Congress proceedings.'
Biden’s Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, former Senator John Kerry, has declared that it’s time to follow in the Netherland’s footsteps and make U.S. farmers go extinct in order to save the planet.
“A lot of people have no clue that agriculture contributes about 33 percent of all the emissions of the world,” Kerry declared earlier this month.
“Depending a little bit on how you count it, but it’s anywhere from 26 to 33. And we can’t get to net zero, we don’t get this job done, unless agriculture is front and center as part of the solution. So all of us understand here. The depths of this mission.”
A new report from Maricopa County in response to a request from Maricopa County Republican Committee committeeman Tristan Manos has revealed that 4,484 ballots in the 2020 election were cast without definitive proof of U.S. citizenship.
The report was shared initially by Just the News from the county office, with County Recorder Stephen Richer’s letterhead.
One of the primary questions from the report asked the following:
“Exactly how many people who failed at any point in time to, proactively or retroactively, provide proof of U.S. Citizenship beyond personal attestation for the purpose of voting in the November 3rd, 2020 Election (early or on Election Day) actually voted ‘federal only’ ballots that Maricopa County positively identified, counted, and represented in the official Maricopa County Canvass of the 2020 Election as being legal and lawful ballots?”
Maricopa County’s official answer was 4,484.
There’s hardly a shortage of Russophobia in the political West, whether it’s the previously latent one or the much more blatant hatred unashamedly demonstrated in recent times. In most countries dominated by the United States this has become the “new normal” since February 24, 2022. However, of all Washington DC’s allies and satellite states/vassals, there’s one that makes even such endemically Russophobic countries like Poland or the Baltic states seem “moderate” – the United Kingdom.
In recent announcements, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said that it could completely cut diplomatic ties with the UK over its extremely escalatory actions such as the delivery of ever more advanced and longer-range weapons to the Kiev regime. In a statement for Russia’s RT, published on Friday, the Russian MFA cited London’s significant and ever-growing meddling in Ukraine, as well as other actions aimed against Russia, particularly when it comes to arming and directly assisting the Neo-Nazi junta forces. Although the MFA stated that cutting ties with the UK might be an “extreme measure”, it was left without virtually any other option, so this move is being considered very seriously.
“The severing of diplomatic ties with the UK would be an ‘extreme measure’, but [Russia] could end up taking the step considering London’s significant involvement in the Ukraine conflict,” the Russian MFA warned on Friday.
The FBI earlier this month quietly released a 400-page report detailing the 2015 San Bernardino shooting that occurred at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California.
InfoWars first reported on the elusive third shooter involved in the 2015 San Bernardino Islamic Christmas shooting from the very beginning — 8 years before the FBI finally admitted it.
This FBI report proves once again that Alex Jones was right.
The US is selectively imposing sanctions in response to Uganda’s anti-homosexuality legislation, MP Asuman Basalirwa has claimed. The politician told RT on Monday that decisions on internal affairs should be left to each country.
“I have no problem with the way a country manages their affairs. My only problem with these people is single-picking. This law here was signed by the president of the Republic of Uganda. May I invite America, Canada, Britain, and the entire Europe to also cancel the visas of Mr. Museveni?” Basalirwa stated.
The signing of the Anti-Homosexuality Act 2023 by President Museveni has drawn condemnation from human rights organizations and activists, some of whom have threatened legal action against the Ugandan government.
On Sunday, Conservative House Republicans got really mad at the compromise agreement between Speaker Kevin McCarthy and President Joe Biden to raise the debt ceiling.
According to The Hill, the bill sets certain spending limits on discretionary non-defense spending and grants Republicans some of what they wanted on issues such as work requirements for certain social services programs.
“This is a good strong bill that a majority of Republicans will vote for. You’re going to have Republicans and Democrats be able to move this to the president,” McCarthy stated.
However, several Republicans strongly criticized the agreement.
“No real cuts to see here. Conservatives have been sold out once again,” Senator Rand Paul said.
