Earlier this week, a group of 13 Republican states were successful in their lawsuit against the Biden Administration challenging a provision in the President's "American Rescue Plan." As reported by the Washington Examiner:
U.S. District Judge L. Scott Coogler of the Northern District of Alabama issued an injunction against Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and in favor of more than a dozen states that enjoins her from enforcing the section of Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act, enacted in March.Read more

The scandal behind the most infamous attack of the Democrats' and Biden Administration’s war on the First Amendment grew larger today. In a letter today by 17 state attorneys general to the National School Boards Association, whose letter allegedly started the effort of the Department of Justice to label parents speaking at school board meetings “domestic terrorists,” notes:
Recent reporting and e-mails not only make clear that NSBA likely colluded with the Biden administration, but also suggest that Biden administration officials may have participated in the development of the September 29 letter and asked you to sign it. In your e-mail to the NSBA Board dated September 29, 2021, you specifically stated that you had been “in talks over the last several weeks with White House staff, they requested additional information on some of the specific threats, so the letter details many of the incidents that have been occurring.”Read more

President Biden has officially withdrawn David Chipman as his nominee for Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. Upon his nomination, Chipman quickly became a controversial figure due to his anti-Second Amendment activism and work with gun control groups. It appears as though the bipartisan pushback and suspected lack of votes caused the President to withdraw the nomination.Read more
Until recently, President Biden's approval ratings had not seen much fluctuation since he entered into office. In part, this can be attributed to the extreme party polarization that exists in presidential polling. But Biden's July ratings indicate that something has changed: his approval saw a drop from 56% in June to 50% in July, which Gallup notes is a sign of "meaningful decline." On Friday, lawyer and radio host Erick Erickson weighed in on several key issues facing the Biden Administration, which he believes are impacting the polls.Read more
With the Democrats' federal takeover of elections in jeopardy, one Democrat leader is trying to force Joe Biden's hand on the filibuster. Previously, the President has given mixed signals on whether he supports the procedure which safeguards the influence of the minority party in the Senate. POLITICO reported:
House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) told POLITICO Biden “should endorse” the idea of creating a carveout to the legislative filibuster in the Senate for legislation that applies to the Constitution. In effect, the reform would make it possible for Democrats to pass their sweeping elections reform bill and another bill reauthorizing key sections of the 1965 Voting Rights Act with just Democratic support.Read more
