President Joe Biden's rhetoric on elections went too far this week.
Biden has continued to wrongly compare Republican-backed state election reforms to the Jim Crow era South, which is ludicrous. But in a speech this week designed to pressure Senators into abolishing the legislative filibuster so that Biden's radical federal takeover of elections could pass, Biden did the unforgivable and compared elected officials who disagree with him to the likes of Bull Connor, George Wallace, and Jefferson Davis. That's right, Biden compared Members of Congress like Tim Scott, Burgess Owens, and Byron Donalds to radical segregationists and the president of the confederacy.
I really don’t think people fully understand yet how much Tuesday’s speech permanently damaged the Biden Presidency. There is no pivoting back after that demagogic display.https://t.co/YeSeaVcJNq pic.twitter.com/nNRf061uUD— AG (@AGHamilton29) January 14, 2022
The problems continue with President Joe Biden's judicial nominees. Of particular concern is Nancy Abudu, who Biden recently nominated to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. Concerns with her nomination should come as no surprise considering Abudu currently works as the Southern Poverty Law Center's Strategic Litigation Director. Some of Abudu's most outlandish remarks concern her opinions on election integrity measures.Read more
Republicans and Democrats spent Tuesday presenting dueling visions for America's elections. Republicans want to make it easier to vote and harder to cheat, while the Democrats, led by President Biden, are willing to do whatever it takes—including changing the Senate filibuster—to achieve a partisan takeover of our elections.
Democrats will do whatever they have to do to get their way—including changing the rules—to fundamentally change U.S. elections.— RNLA ⚖️ (@TheRepLawyer) January 11, 2022
Since becoming Senate Majority Leader, Senator Chuck Schumer has became an extremist and has seemingly lost touch with other Senators, including himself. Then just Senator Schumer said in 2003:
"The bottom line is this. We are defending the Constitution, we are saying there should be some balance," Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a 2003 floor speech. "President Bush didn’t win by a landslide. This Senate is not 62 to 38, or 70 to 30. This country is narrowly divided, and that means when laws are made they move to the middle."Read more
The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments Friday in a high-stakes public session to decide whether the U.S. government can begin enforcing sweeping COVID-19 vaccine requirements affecting nearly 100 million workers.Read more
Today marks the one-year anniversary of the January 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol. To be clear, the violence and property destruction that took place that day was unacceptable and should be condemned. Unfortunately, Democrats took today's anniversary as an opportunity to push their radical elections agenda.Read more
On Wednesday, Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer continued his campaign against the filibuster in the name of passing a federal takeover of elections. But Democrat Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema are not buying Chuck Schumer's filibuster hysterics. Manchin expressed his continued hesitancy with making changes to the filibuster to a pool of reporters on Tuesday: "To being open to a rules change that would create a nuclear option, that's very, very difficult. That's a heavy lift… Anytime there's a carveout, you eat the whole turkey."Read more
In a follow up to his "dear colleague" letter released yesterday, Senator Chuck Schumer took to the Senate floor on Tuesday to further discuss his plans to use changes in Senate filibuster rules to pass Democrat-backed elections legislation. In his remarks, Senator Schumer centered on the contention that the Left's radical elections proposals should be passed in response to the events of January 6, 2021 at the U.S. Capitol.
.@SenSchumer (D-NY): "Jan. 6, 2021, will be forever remembered as a day of enduring infamy, a permanent blemish in the story of American democracy, and the final bitter act of the worst president in modern times."— CSPAN (@cspan) January 4, 2022

On Monday, Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer indicated that he would hold a vote in the next few weeks to change Senate filibuster rules. He is threatening these changes in the event that the chamber inevitably is unable to pass one of the radical pieces of election legislation proposed by Democrats in 2021. In his letter, Senator Schumer wrote:
We must adapt. The Senate must evolve, like it has many times before. The Senate was designed to evolve and has evolved many times in our history. As former Senator Robert Byrd famously said, Senate Rules “must be changed to reflect changed circumstances.” Put more plainly by Senator Byrd, “Congress is not obliged to be bound by the dead hand of the past.”Read more
