During today's Committee on House Administration hearing discussing the Elections Clause, Rep. Brian Steil called out Vice President Kamala Harris for insinuating that rural Americans are incapable of complying with voter ID laws. In a recent interview for BET, Vice President Harris argued that rural Americans are unable to photocopy their ID. This is just another example of Democrats' ludicrous claims that voter ID laws amount to "voter suppression."Read more
On Thursday, the RNC announced the results of a poll confirming that "voters reject Democrat lies about election integrity efforts." Those polled included Americans identifying as Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. As Georgia Governor Brian Kemp told Fox News, Republicans have the truth on their side when it comes to defending GOP-backed election reforms.Read more
The Supreme Court reaffirmed strong First Amendment protection against voyeuristic government compulsory disclosure rules last week in Americans for Prosperity Foundation v. Bonta. While we wrote about this last week, this is an important decision that deserves a second look. The Court ruled that California cannot require non-profit religious, charitable and civic organizations to disclose their donors to the state as a condition of soliciting contributions from Californians. The California requirement was started by then-Attorney General Kamala Harris. The Court’s opinion is a rebuke to the now Vice President.Read more
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
