This Friday at 2:00 p.m. ET, RNLA will host a webinar titled, "The Left's War on Free Speech and the Legitimacy of Our Institutions." The past few weeks have shown that the Left is launching a full-throated assault on the First Amendment rights of Americans. Last week, Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced the creation of the "Disinformation Governance Board" within the Department of Homeland Security.Read more
Although much of the world was focused on Ukraine, Republicans “won” some points with independent voters during the confirmation hearings of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. According to polling after the hearing, independent and conservatives voter are less likely to support a vote for Judge Brown Jackson. Other liberals are mad at Democrats for the handling of the hearing, for not playing the race card enough. So Democrats and liberals went back to their tried and true attacks on black conservative Justice Clarence Thomas. However, this attack was extreme even for them. They are calling for Justice Thomas to recuse himself or even resign because of texts his wife, Ginni Thomas, sent. As RNLA Chair Harmeet Dhillon stated:
“Ginni Thomas is a private citizen who is entitled to her own opinions independent of her husband,” Harmeet Dhillon, chair of the Republican National Lawyers Association, told the DCNF. “To impart to a spouse his wife’s private conversations as a recusal factor is both unprecedented and grossly sexist.”
“Ms. Thomas is neither a litigant, nor a lawyer, nor even a material witness, to any case presently before the court, nor is she likely to be, despite how hard the left is straining to make this sexist trope into an issue,” Dhillon continued.Read more
RNLA’s National Policy Conference is in one week and we thought we would highlight four of the speakers' views on the just-completed Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. But as Senator Tom Cotton, who will be awarded the Ed Meese Award at the conference, points out:
The media's cheerleading for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's confirmation, despite her soft-on-crime record, goes beyond bias—it's propaganda.— Tom Cotton (@TomCottonAR) March 24, 2022

The United States Supreme Court's decision in Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee to uphold Arizona's common-sense voter integrity laws is perhaps the most significant win for federalism and election integrity in recent history, especially at a critical time when Democrats are doing all they can to undermine the security of elections.

Tomorrow Senate Democrats will fail in their efforts to pass a slightly modified version of S.1 a.k.a. the "Corrupt Politicians Act." They will say it is because of a filibuster but the reality is they do not even have the support of Democrat Senator Joe Manchin. But the fight for fair and honest elections is far from over. Democrats will then pivot to H.R. 4, the "John Lewis Voting Rights Act." The Democrats will lead you to believe that H.R.4 is a compromise that everyone can get behind, but as RNLA Co-Chair Harmeet Dhillon points out, H.R.4 is a "trojan horse" to achieve their partisan power grab of U.S. elections. Dhillon writes:
All Americans – particularly Republicans in Congress – need to recognize H.R. 4 for the unnecessary power grab it truly is, and not be fooled by false propaganda about "voting rights. . ."Read more
Speaking before the Committee on House Administration Subcommittee on Elections today, RNLA Co-Chair Harmeet Dhillon said it best:
"The unspoken truth is that all voters, including Democrats, know that Voter ID and voter list maintenance are important tools to maintain voter confidence in election administration and the results they produce. Democrat politicians and radical activists undermine that valuable confidence when they fail to support these commonsense and widely-supported tools."
Throughout the hearing, Democrat members of the Subcommittee and their witnesses attacked and undermined widely-supported election integrity laws like requiring voter ID and voter list maintenance—two procedures that dramatically increase voter confidence in elections.
RNLA’s own Co-Chair Harmeet Dhillon of Dhillon Law Group joined a panel of election law experts to discuss the positives and the negatives of the 2020 election and what reforms are needed in the future to preserve election integrity.Read more
