Under the guise of "democracy reform," Senate Democrats have drafted their first bill this congress to drastically alter the nation's election laws.
The legislation (S. 1 or "For the People Act") is overtly political and only benefits liberals at the ballot box. This clearly underscores that Democrats' top legislative priority is their own reelections — not the American people.Read more
RNLA staff, members, and leaders from other states such as Florida all went to Georgia to help with “Election Day Operations” (EDO) or efforts to ensure the Georgia election was open, fair and honest. Although the term of art is “EDO”, RNLA-related efforts have been going on for weeks.
RNLA was one of the leaders of an effort that was described as follows:
8000 pollwatchers for election day and after. 4000 for early vote, dropboxes, absentee processing, and vote review panels. GA is ready. Go vote! https://t.co/m99qYowjFx— Mike Roman (@mikeroman) January 1, 2021
Much like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, it's still unclear where Georgia Democratic U.S. Senate candidates Raphael Warnock and John Ossoff stand on court packing. Just so it's clear, court packing refers to FDR's unsuccessful attempt to add additional justices to the Supreme Court for political reasons (Dictionary.com conveniently changed the definition to fit the Democrats' narrative that Senate Republicans are somehow doing something wrong by confirming President Trump's nominees to the federal judiciary).Read more
The Vice President has a message for Georgia voters ahead of January's Senate runoffs:
Georgia, we need you to stay in the fight for integrity in our elections, stay in the fight to Defend the Majority in the Senate until the polls close on January 5th, and stay in the fight to send @Perduesenate and @KLoeffler back to a Republican Majority! pic.twitter.com/oMxjCZD3wm— Mike Pence (@Mike_Pence) December 10, 2020
Americans are understandably frustrated with the 2020 election cycle, and trust in our elections is at an all-time low. But as RNLA shared earlier this week, the fairness of the U.S. election system is worth fighting for. Where can you as a Republican lawyer make a difference? Volunteer during the Georgia runoffs for 2 U.S. Senate seats in January. Irregularities cannot be exposed unless poll watchers and absentee ballot counting observers are on the ground to observe what is taking place.Read more
Senator Susan Collins is a force to be reckoned with in Washington, DC.
She is both a champion for Republican values and a strong independent voice in today’s world of extreme partisanship. She is uniquely admired and respected by her colleagues on both sides of the aisle.Read more
In a rare move, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took to the Senate floor on Monday to respond directly to those who have criticized him for blocking Democratic election law proposals this past week. Attacks on the Majority Leader masquerading as constructive criticisms have become increasingly ugly in recent days. A Washington Post opinion piece called him a “Russian asset,” and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough has repeatedly referred to him as “Moscow Mitch.”Read more
Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee began confirmation hearings for four judicial vacancies. The nominees include Charles Eskridge (nominated for the Southern District of Texas), Peter Phipps (nominated for the Third Circuit Court of Appeals), William Stickman IV (nominated for the Western District of Pennsylvania), and Jennifer Wilson (nominated for the Middle District of Pennsylvania). The nominations for the U.S. District Court positions are especially important because 118 vacancies remain unfilled.Read more
Today, the media was buzzing with stories focusing on the President’s power to nominate judges and how that is going to impact the 2020 election. Democrat Presidential candidates have been talking about a wide variety of issues from Citizens United, Roe v. Wade litmus tests for nominees, to strategies aiming to fill the Supreme Court with liberal Justices. Meanwhile, Senate Republicans keep confirming more judges and cementing President Trump’s legacy.Read more
