Evangelical group to spend $50M
on get-out-the-vote efforts

Veteran conservative activist Ralph Reed said Wednesday that the faith-based group he leads plans to spend at least $50 million on get-out-the-vote efforts in 2020. It's part of a large-scale marshaling of evangelical resources that's poised to benefit President Donald Trump's reelection campaign. After Trump spoke to an annual conference hosted by Reed's group, the Faith & Freedom Coalition, the longtime GOP strategist previewed a voter outreach plan for 2020 that he said would include significant investment in Latino voters of faith. Of the $50 million the group has set aside to spend on communicating with voters, Reed said $4 million would go toward contacting socially conservative and religious Latino voters in swing
Supreme Court tosses citizenship
question from 2020 census forms,
a victory for Democratic states

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the Trump administration cannot include a question about citizenship on the 2020 census form that goes to every U.S. household, giving a win to mostly Democratic populous states that said the question would discourage legal and illegal immigrants from responding and make the population count less accurate. The court was deeply fractured on the issue, but on the section that essentially eliminated the citizenship question, the vote was 5-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the four-member liberal wing of the court. The court's majority said the government has the right to ask a citizenship question, but that it needs to properly justify changing

Ohio Democrat Rep. Tim Ryan admitted that Democrats have lost touch with “working class people” while being questioned during the first presidential debate held in Miami, Florida. After he answered a question regarding solutions to climate change, Ryan jumped to respond to a previous question on “real politics.” “We could talk about climate, we could talk about guns, we could talk about all of these issues that we all care about,” Ryan told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd. “We have a perception problem with the Democratic Party.” “We are not connecting to the working class people in the very states that I represent in Ohio, in the industrial midwest,”

Sen. Cory Booker argued during the Democrat presidential debate on Wednesday that Americans need to talk more about transgender people. “We do not talk enough about trans-Americans, especially African American trans-Americans, and even incredibly high rates of murder right now,” he said. He compared the transgender rights struggles to the civil rights of black Americans, recalling a time when they were lynched in America. Booker also said that up to 30 percent of LGBT schoolchildren were afraid to go to school. He then argued that Democrats needed to do more than just support the Equality Act proposed in Congress. “We need to have a president that will fight to protect LGBTQ

The Trump administration is threatening to veto the House border funding bill. In a statement released Monday, the Office of Management and Budget criticized the Democrats’ $4.5 billion plan for not setting aside enough money for critical border programs. It goes on to call it a “partisan bill that under funds necessary accounts, and seeks to take advantage of the current crisis by inserting policy provisions that would make our country less safe.” The overcrowding at some facilities has reportedly left officials with bare-bones resources to care for unaccompanied migrant children and migrant families. On Monday, the Border Patrol moved hundreds of migrants kids from a detention center in

The Justice Department filed a lawsuit Tuesday against Omarosa Manigault Newman alleging that the former "Apprentice" star who served as an adviser to President Donald Trump before becoming a prominent critic of his administration failed to file a financial disclosure report after she was fired from the White House. In a civil complaint filed in federal court in Washington, the department said Manigault Newman failed to file the report despite several emails reminding her to do so. Such a report is required of employees who leave government jobs. The Justice Department is seeking a $50,000 penalty against Manigault Newman. Manigault Newman was unavailable for comment.

The majority of working-class Americans say the country’s mass legal and illegal immigration policies are driving up crime in the United States, a new survey finds. The latest Gallup survey finds that among Americans with less than a college degree, more than one-in-two, or 51 percent, said immigration to the U.S. has made crime across the country worse. About 41 percent said immigration has not had much impact on crime, and only seven percent said immigration has decreased crime. Overall, more Americans say immigration is driving up crime than those who say immigration is decreasing crime.

Sen.

The crowd enthusiastically chanted, “Shut it down!” Warren’s gambit highlights the growing number of progressives who emotionally oppose the federal agencies’ efforts to identify — although not actually stop — the huge wave of Central American migrants and their children who are walking into Americans’ blue-collar workplaces, schools, and neighborhoods.

Megan Rapinoe, star forward for the women’s U.S. national soccer team, seems to hate the world. She goes around with a scowl permanently etched into her weathered face. Though an outstanding soccer player, Megs has it in her head that she’s getting cheated, and that the cheater is Donald Trump. So she refused to go to the White House if the team wins the women’s World Cup. Trump then extended an invitation to the team whether they win or lose and of course Megan took it with ill grace.

Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union and husband of top Trump White House aide Mercedes Schlapp, said the ruling showed the chief justice was not the conservative-minded jurist he’d been touted to be, noting his previous decision essentially preserving Obamacare. “I’m for impeaching the chief justice for lying to all of us about his support

A new bill would calculate potential costs of reparations — and by Yahoo Finance estimates, these could reach as high as $17.1 trillion. Last week, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held the first hearing in a decade on H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. The bill was first introduced in 1989 by former Congressman John Conyers (D-MI). Conyers reintroduced the bill each year until his retirement in 2017 — and each year, the bill languished in Congress. The bill’s focus was not to pass reparations, but

While many of his Republican colleagues have remained silent on the issue, or come out in support of the president, Romney claimed the accusation placed by Jean Carroll, who previously said “most people think of rape as being sexy,” is a “serious” allegation, according to CNN. “It’s a very serious allegation,” Romney said. “I hope that it is fully evaluated. The President said it didn’t happen and I certainly hope that’s the case.”

The Supreme Court ordered further proceedings in the dispute over a citizenship question on the 2020 census form Thursday, saying the Trump administration apparently concealed its true reason for adding the query. Chief Justice John Roberts delivered the Court’s opinion, portions of which were unanimous. “It is rare to review a record as extensive as the one before us when evaluating informal agency action — and it should be,” Roberts wrote. “But having done so for the sufficient reasons we have explained, we cannot ignore the disconnect between the decision made and the explanation given.
