Was DOJ the Driving Force in the Effort to Label Parents Domestic Terrorists?
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

Erick Erickson: Biden Has Some Big Problems

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
ICYMI: Dem leadership is forcing Biden's hand on the filibuster.
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:

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
