On Tuesday, President Joe Biden announced that Vice President Kamala Harris would lead the Administration's election law effort. It should come as no surprise that the Biden Administration is assigning the task to Vice President Harris. The Corrupt Politicians Act (H.R.1/S.1), a federal takeover of elections, is the Democrats' number one priority.Read more
Biden-Harris Administration Questions Harris’ Actions as California Attorney General in Donor Privacy Case
A little over a year after RNLA wrote about the 9th Circuit’s decision in Americans for Prosperity Foundation v. Becerra, the Supreme Court granted certiorari to determine whether private non-profit organizations could be compelled to disclose their major donors under the First Amendment’s freedom of association.
While the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the practice enforced by former California Attorney General and current Vice-President Kamala Harris and President Bidens’ DHHS nominee, current California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, the Biden-Harris Administration isn’t so sold.Read more
Twitter is more and more becoming the land of the woke and not a place for even neutral reporting. The latest controversy involves a tweet from Axios that was *gasp* critical of Vice President Harris. We would like to link to the original tweet, but we can’t... So here is Fox News' version of the story:
Axios drew criticism Monday after it deleted a tweet fact-checking Vice President Kamala Harris, who repeated the debunked claim that the Biden administration is "starting from scratch" with its coronavirus vaccine rollout. . . .
Axios shared that exchange on Sunday evening, but included a comment by White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci, who refuted CNN's reporting last month that quoted anonymous Biden officials making the same claim.
"We certainly are not starting from scratch because there is activity going on in the distribution," Fauci said during a White House press briefing.Read more
Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell has always defended maintaining the legislative filibuster while Republicans were in both the majority and the minority. This is a bipartisan issue which even former-Senators Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have also supported. It should be noted the legislative filibuster is very different from the filibuster used on nominations which was mostly eliminated by then Senate Majority Leader Harry Ried in 2013. (Senator McConnell ended it for Supreme Court nominees in 2017 when Democrats filibustered Justice Neil Gorsuch's nomination.)
However, Sen. Chuck Schumer is flirting to remove this critical democratic process. McConnell is fighting to preserve the legislative filibuster which lets a senator extend debate and requires controversial bills to muster 60 votes to proceed to a final up-or-down vote.Read more
President Trump was extremely successful in having placed 234 Article III Judges, including 3 Supreme Court Justices. His record of working with the Senate to confirm outstanding Judicial nominees stands in strong contrast to the record of then Senators Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Biden was one of 22 senators who voted against [Chief Justice John] Roberts [who will swear him in tomorrow] in 2005. . . .
Roberts is far from the only justice whose confirmation Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris opposed. Biden, who was a senator from Delaware for more than 35 years, also voted not to confirm Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. Harris, a California senator, cast votes against the nominations of the three Trump appointees to the high court: Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.
It’s the first time in American history that the incoming president and vice president have together voted against a majority of the court.Read more
California Governor Gavin Newsom has selected California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to fill Kamala Harris' U.S. Senate seat once it becomes vacant. RNLA Co-Chair Harmeet Dhillon, a Californian, reacted to the news on Twitter:
One of the worst election officials in the nation will go to DC, unelected!!! A fitting exit to his failed tenure. Remember the time he said door to door ballot harvesting by strangers was cool during a pandemic shutdown when businesses and churches were shuttered? Good times. https://t.co/g6pLSnwfFT— Harmeet K.

In the most striking moment of last night’s Vice Presidential Debate, Senator Kamala Harris refused to answer on court packing. But first, let us briefly address Senator Harris' citing of President Lincoln not filling a Supreme Court vacancy 27 days before an election.Read more
While most of DC is focused on the “impeachment inquiry” into President Trump, Senate Judiciary Committee Member and Democratic Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris and far-left extremist groups like Demand Justice are calling for the impeachment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Harris’ letter begins with citing her own questions and Senate floor speech as proof. Then she goes into details from the recently debunked and uncorroborated allegation from the book by a couple of New York Times reporters. As the Washington Examiner describes this:Read more
