Another win. Fifth Circuit in Case Involving the Biden Administration’s Attempt to Provide Drugs and Medical Treatment to Children Without Parental Consent.

For some strange reason the Biden Administration feels that 1st graders can make their own decision when it comes to drugs and castration. Courts said different.

Last week, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued a unanimous opinion in Deanda v. Becerra, which rejected the Biden Administration’s efforts to prevent parents from consenting to, or even learning about, medical care provided to their minor children, specifically, birth-control pills and other related services.

Texas has a parental consent law but the Biden Administration felt that Title X clinics in Texas have falsely claimed for decades that the Title X statute “preempts” state parental involvement laws and exempts Title X clinics from Texas’s parental consent requirements.

It actually does just the opposite. The statue actually encourages parent participation. Nuff said.

Finally. Nikki Haley to End Her Presidential Campaign. She finally sees that there was no chance for her and I think that it sunk in that she was being used.

Nikki Haley will reportedly announce the end of her presidential campaign after former President Donald Trump’s near sweep of every state in the GOP primary to date.

The news comes early Wednesday morning from The Wall Street Journal after Haley declined to make a post-Super Tuesday evening address to her campaign supporters in Charleston, South Carolina.

Hey Joe, I thought South Carolina Democrats supported you?

Hey Joe, I thought South Carolina Democrats supported you? Remember how the fanatics on the left ridiculed Trumps low numbers in New Hampshire? Only 176,00 votes they said out of 300,000 registered Republicans.

Well Biden got 126,00 votes in South Carolina. There are over 1.5 milion registered Democrats in South Carolina. So what? 4% of the voters showed up. What a landslide.

Despite a major push from the Biden campaign and national Democrats for strong turnout in the South Carolina primary, the vote count was far below what was recorded in the 2020. Some counties had only a few dozen folks show up.

Hillary Clinton Gets Bad News From Judge

Hillary Clinton Gets Bad News From Judge.

Story by Taylor Gold 

The Clinton Foundation, which was launched by former President Bill Clinton and former First Lady Hillary Clinton, has been under major scrutiny and rocked by scandals for years.

As a non-profit, the foundation is accused of abusing its expense privileges and creating a tax haven for the multi-millionaire Clinton family.

The foundation has been involved in shady deals that exploit the Clintons’ power and influence, including the solicitation of large donations from countries where the Clintons have business interests. 

As a result, U.S. Tax Court Judge David Gustafson signaled that more legal problems may lay ahead for the Clintons.

TEAM USA 🇺🇸 on X: “Do you think the investigation into Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation should be reopened? https://t.co/qCvIfEGJPf” / X (twitter.com)

The bombshell “Durham Report” by Special counsel John Durham found that the Clintons have avoided legal trouble due to their power.

Specifically, the FBI and DOJ were guilty of “significant failures” related to investigating allegations into the Clintons.

Beginning in 2014, the Durham report found that the FBI was hesitant and “more careful” to proceed with the investigation into the high-profile political family because agents were “scared with the big name [Clinton]” involved. 

“They were pretty ‘tippy-toeing’ around HRC because there was a chance she would be the next President,” the report found.

A reliable whistleblower alleged IRS improprieties involving the controversial Clinton Foundation.

Judge Gustafson previously refused an IRS request to dismiss the case. The judge has demanded that the IRS disclose whether it conducted a criminal investigation into the foundation.

Judge Gustafson said there is a “gap” in the IRS’s records and suspicions about its investigation.

In 2018, witnesses testified before Congress that the Clinton Foundation wrongfully operated as a foreign lobbyist by accepting overseas donations. This was an illegal attempt to influence U.S. policy.

A reliable source told the FBI that a foreign government planned to support and “contribute” to Hillary Clinton’s anticipated presidential campaign as a way to “gain influence with Clinton should she win the presidency,” the Durham report found.

An FBI field office began investigating this claim and sought a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant.

Republican Florida Rep. Donalds continued, “Look, the media was in on this from the beginning in my view. They are the ones that were helping to launder out Hillary Clinton’s phony made up information about Donald Trump, the same information that she used with her friends at the upper echelon of FBI to start the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.”

“So her media friends are not going to come out now and say we were wrong and this is damning,” Donalds continued. “They are just going to laugh it off, cover it for one or two days and then ignore it.

House approves bill striking down Biden’s crackdown on hunting and archery in overwhelmingly bipartisan vote.

House approves bill striking down Biden’s crackdown on hunting and archery in overwhelmingly bipartisan vote. Yes in Bipartisan fashion,(424-10) the House struck down Joey Boy’s Department of Education’s ruling that you can’t kill Bambi, and schools that teach that will get no Federal funding. 

Actually in July that the Education Department shared federal guidance to hunting education groups highlighting that hunting and archery programs in schools would be stripped of funding. The guidance explained that the administration interpreted the 2022 Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (BSCA) to mean such programs can no longer receive taxpayer funds.

In the guidance, obtained first by Fox News Digital, senior agency official Sarah Martinez wrote that archery, hunter education and wilderness safety courses use weapons that are “technically dangerous weapons” and therefore “may not be funded under” the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), which is the primary source of federal aid for elementary and secondary education across the country.

What say you?

Thank Joe Biden for this.

By JOHN ELLIS

Americans outside the wealthiest 20% of the country have run out of extra savings and now have less cash on hand than they did when the pandemic began, according to the latest Federal Reserve study of household finances. For the bottom 80% of households by income, bank deposits and other liquid assets were lower in June this year than they were in March 2020, after adjustment for inflation. All income groups have seen their balances decline in real terms from a peak in 2021, according to the Fed survey. But among the wealthiest one-fifth of households, cash savings are still about 8% above their level when Covid hit. By contrast, the poorest two-fifths of Americans have seen an 8% drop in that period. And the next 40% — a group that roughly corresponds with the US middle class — saw their cash savings drop below pre-pandemic levels in the last quarter. The figures point to dwindling firepower available for US consumers, whose resilience has kept the economy growing at a rapid clip this year and staved off the recession that many expected. Some analysts warn a downturn is still in the cards as households run low on spare cash. (Source: bloomberg.com)


2. Consumers in the market for loans to buy homes and cars are discovering that, because of the Federal Reserve’s rate increases, their money gets them a lot less than it would have a few years ago. Meanwhile, those with credit cards and other loans that carry rates pegged to broader benchmarks are finding they have gotten much more expensive. Fed officials signaled last week that they plan to keep interest rates high for quite a while. For families who don’t need to borrow, higher rates might not affect daily life too much. But for those who do, the Fed’s aggressive rate increases are really beginning to sting. “The bite is starting now,” said Liz Ann Sonders, chief investment strategist at Charles Schwab.

The Biden administration tried to censor this Stanford doctor, but he won in court.

The Biden administration tried to censor this Stanford doctor, but he won in court.

By Rikki Schlott.

This is a continuation/follow up to an article from Phoenix.

Judge: Biden Admin Violated Doctor’s First Amendment Rights – Looking at today’s world (atwebpages.com)

A federal court of appeals ruled earlier this month that the White House, surgeon general, CDC and FBI “likely violated the First Amendment” by exerting a pressure campaign on social media companies to censor COVID-19 skeptics — including Stanford epidemiologist Dr. Jay Bhattacharya.

“I think this ruling is akin to the second Enlightenment,” Bhattacharya told The Post. “It’s a ruling that says there’s a democracy of ideas. The issue is not whether the ideas are wrong or right. The question is who gets to control what ideas are expressed in the public square?”

The court ordered that the Biden administration and other federal agencies “shall take no actions, formal or informal, directly or indirectly” to coerce social media companies “to remove, delete, suppress or reduce” free speech.

Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine, economics and health research policy at Stanford University, co-authored the Great Barrington Declaration in the fall of 2020 with professors from Harvard and Oxford.

The epidemiologists advocated for “focused protection” — safeguarding the most vulnerable Americans while cautiously allowing others to function as normally as possible — rather than broad pandemic lockdowns.

“We were just acting as scientists, but almost immediately we were censored,” said Bhattacharya, director of Stanford’s Center for Demography and Economics of Health and Aging. “Google de-boosted us. Our Facebook page was removed. It was just a crazy time.

“The kinds of things that the federal government was telling social media companies to censor included us — along with millions of other posts from countless other people who were criticizing government COVID policy,” he added.

A New Orleans-based three-judge panel found that the federal government “likely coerced or significantly encouraged social-media platforms to moderate content” by vaguely threatening adverse regulatory consequences if social media companies did not suppress certain viewpoints on the pandemic.

“The government had a vast censorship enterprise,” Bhattacharya said. “It was systematically used to threaten and coerce and jawbone and tell all these social media companies, ‘You better listen to us: Censor these people, censor these ideas, or else.’”

It was later revealed that then-NIH director Dr. Francis Collins called for a “swift and devastating takedown” of Bhattacharya and his co-authors — whom Collins dubbed “fringe epidemiologists” — in an email to Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Subsequent reporting from Elon Musk’s so-called Twitter Files — internal documents and communications released by Musk, after he bought the platform, to expose Twitter’s inner workings — revealed that Bhattachrya’s profile was being suppressed on the platform.

“It’s akin to the efforts by governments to suppress the printing press when it first was invented, when books represented an enormous threat to power,” Bhattacharya said, referring to efforts by King Henry VIII and the Catholic Church to curb use of the printing press in the 16th century.

“There’s an analogous fight that’s currently going on with social media, which makes it vastly easier for anybody to express their ideas, and very powerful people find that incredibly threatening.”

The September 8 ruling affirmed but narrowed a lower court order, issued on July 4 by US District Judge Terry Doughty, which found that the Biden administration and other federal agencies “engaged in a years-long pressure campaign [on social media outlets] designed to ensure that the censorship aligned with the government’s preferred viewpoints” and that “the platforms, in capitulation to state-sponsored pressure, changed their moderation policies.”

Bhattacharya says the first victory, although in a lower court, was the most exciting to him.

“I was just absolutely thrilled, especially to have it on July 4th,” he said. “I think that judge was sending a message by issuing this ruling on July 4th that we’re going to restore free speech in this country.”

The Biden administration appealed to the Supreme Court on Thursday — a move that Bhattacharya anticipated.

But he believes it’s “unlikely” the Supreme Court will overturn the Fifth Circuit’s decision.

He feels his is a landmark case in curbing the influence the government has over social media — on matters that extend far beyond just COVID-19 and lockdowns.

Clinton Impeachment Revisionism Liberals can’t tell the truth about ANYTHING.

Clinton Impeachment Revisionism Liberals can’t tell the truth about ANYTHING.

With talk of impeaching President Biden in the air, the media’s fake history this week is:  Voters punished Republicans for even thinking about impeaching President Bill Clinton!

Even the casual news consumer will hear this lie at least 20 times this week.

ABC News:
“If the inquiry does lead to an impeachment vote, history suggests it won't necessarily be helpful for the impeachers. House Republicans lost five seats in the 1998 election a few weeks before impeaching President Bill Clinton. Democrats made those surprising gains even though the party that controls the White House usually struggles in midterm elections.”
CNBC:
“Politically unpopular impeachment hearings have hurt the party before. Republicans lost seats in the 1998 midterm elections following the impeachment proceedings into then-president Bill Clinton.”
The Financial Times: 
“Rather than being damaged by the impeachment proceedings against him in late 1998, Clinton is widely seen to have benefited politically, including with a better than expected performance in that year’s midterm election.”
Reuters:
“Following the Republican-backed impeachment probe into Clinton, a Democrat, Republicans lost House seats in the 1998 midterm elections.”
MSNBC: 
“None of the scandals from Obama’s time in office ever hit the impeachment threshold, not when there were enough senior GOP members around who knew that impeaching Clinton hadn’t worked out for them politically.”

 

Wrong, wrong, wrong!

That was pure White House spin, from a man willing to defend himself by smearing Thomas Jefferson.  (See above.)

Let’s play back the tape.

Since President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the average midterm loss for the president’s party has been 27 house seats.  But in 1994, Clinton lost an astounding 54 House seats – ushering in a Republican Congress for the first time in 40 years.  Districts that had not voted for a Republican congressman since 1950 went Republican. The GOP was bound to lose some of those seats in the next few cycles.

Merely to maintain the historical average, Democrats should have gained at least two dozen House seats in 1998.  In fact, they gained only five — and not a single senate seat.  Indeed, the 1998 election was the first time in 70 years Republicans had won majorities in the House three elections in a row.

Peculiarly, Clinton’s flacks had spent the weeks before the election predicting Armageddon for the Democrats. So when they picked up a paltry five seats — instead of the two dozen predicted by history — they bellowed that they’d won a moral victory! (That’s when Republicans learned about the game of low expectations.)

Although Democrats had fallen 21 seats short of the historical average for midterm elections, they claimed the people had spoken: Voters just adored Clinton for getting oral sex from a White House intern, then committing multiple felonies!

This defies common sense.  It also defies the exit polls.  As Paul West wrote in the Baltimore Sun, “Only about one in five voters listed moral and ethical values as their chief concern in deciding whom to support in House races. Those voters favored Republican candidates by a 6-to-1 margin.” Thus, the Democrats’ 21-seat shortfall.

But Clinton defenders had beaten their own low expectations, and used that little theatrical performance to announce, as George Stephanopoulos did, that impeachment was “over.”  (It wasn’t.)

And that’s the lie the media has been repeating ever since.

Noticeably, the Democrats’ fairy tale about the 1998 election didn’t help Clinton’s vice president, Al Gore.  Thanks to Clinton, he became the first incumbent president or vice president in a hundred years to lose a presidential election in peacetime and a good economy. (Mind you, that was before we knew Gore was a deranged conspiracy theorist who believes the Earth is in serious peril from cow flatulence.)

Ronald Reagan was so popular he not only won a 49-state landslide re-election for himself, but he also won a symbolic third term for his boob of a vice president, George Herbert Walker Bush (who immediately blew it by breaking his own “no new taxes” pledge).

What was the mystery factor to explain Gore’s historic loss?

The media may have lied to the public about Clinton’s vaunted popularity, but Gore’s pollsters got paid not to lie to him. And they told him the truth: His association with Clinton was killing him.

After the election, Gore pollster, the inestimable Stanley Greenberg, told Vanity Fair magazine that if Clinton had helped, he would have “had Bill Clinton carry Al Gore around on his back.” (This was when one man could still actually carry Al Gore on his back.) But his research showed that whenever Clinton was mentioned, Gore’s numbers took a nosedive.

Steve Rosenthal, political director of the AFL-CIO, also blamed Clinton for Gore’s loss, saying polls showed that voters who cared about character voted for Bush.

Poor Gore had done everything he could to distance himself from Clinton.  He publicly denounced Clinton’s sexual exploits with the intern. He refused to be seen with Clinton on the campaign trail.  He chose Sen. Joe Lieberman as his running mate — the guy who famously became the first Democrat to denounce Clinton’s behavior with Lewinsky on the Senate floor. Also, there was Gore’s huge, embarrassing smooch with his wife on stage at the Democratic National Convention.

But when voters looked at Gore they just couldn’t forget the purple-faced lecher.

And that’s the true story of how the Clinton impeachment helped Republicans hold the House through seven election cycles and defeat an incumbent vice president.

That doesn’t mean the GOP should impeach Biden (except for violating federal immigration law). But the Clinton impeachment is anything but a cautionary tale for Republicans. Unlike the Democrats, our side doesn’t impeach presidents for nonsense.

Biden Says He “Just Follows Orders” During Vietnam Conference.

Biden Says He “Just Follows Orders” During Vietnam Conference.

OAN’s Abril Elfi

President Joe Biden appeared in a press conference where he said “I’ll just follow my orders here.”

On Sunday, the 46th president spoke at a conference in Hanoi Vietnam and met with General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng of the Communist Party of Vietnam.

Biden stood at the podium and read his prepared remarks while looking at his notes for the majority of the time.

After the speech, the Democrat delivered a press conference where he opened up another discussion by reportedly making a joke about the Vietnam War and asking for questions from reporters.

Biden stated that he would take questions from five reporters, but he could not locate the paper list of particular reporters he was supposed to call on that was prepared by White House officials.

He then proceeded to say that he will just “follow his orders from staff.”

At the end, Biden declared that he was “going to bed,” appearing more irate and mentally disoriented.

Due to Biden’s senile mannerisms, his critics have frequently called him “Sleepy Joe,” and online users have commented and poked fun at the press conference footage.

“I’ll just follow my orders here. Uh — Staff, is there anybody that hasn’t spoken yet? I ain’t calling on you! I told you, I only have five questions!” He shouted.

Winning. Judge Rules Witness List in Trump Case Can’t Be Secret. Special prosecutor Smith tried to hide his witness list. Claims 84 witnesses but wanted to keep those secret. Well the judge said NO.

Judge Cannon rejected the request made by special counsel Jack Smith to keep a list of 84 potential witnesses confidential. “The Government’s Motion does not explain why filing the list with the Court is necessary; it does not offer a particularized basis to justify sealing the list from public view; it does not explain why partial sealing, redaction, or means other than sealing are unavailable or unsatisfactory; and it does not specify the duration of any proposed seal,” Judge Aileen Cannon wrote
