Senate clears key procedural step on bill
to protect same-sex marriage

Original Article

The Senate on Wednesday cleared a key procedural hurdle toward historic passage of the bipartisan bill to protect same-sex and interracial marriage, voting 62-37 to break a filibuster. There could be additional votes before final passage, but Wednesday's successful test vote signals the bill is on a glide path to succeed, a remarkable turn of events given how contentious the issue of same-sex marriage was just a few years ago. While the bill would not set a national requirement that all states must legalize same-sex marriage, it would require individual states to recognize another state's legal marriage. So, in the event the Supreme Court might overturn its 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges decision

"same-sex and interracial marriage.." the left always does this.. combines two or more items so you have to vote for BOTH if you want the LEGITIMATE one.. even in the church when they "pray for victims of covid and homosexual AIDS"

In the lists of issues voters were concerned about this issue didn't appear. Democrat and Republican voters are united in wanting the president and congress to deal with the issues that are important. This one is on nobody's list. The Republican senators are off to a rousing start in the race to irrelevancy.

A window dressing law to address something that is not in danger of being made illegal. This is being done to pacify the LGBTQ activists and Liberal Democrat base as well as the BIPOC liberal voting base to show that Democrats are the ones who really care. What they really care about is these people's votes and blind allegiance to the Democrat party. This bill/law is unnecessary, as are many laws that "protect" liberal causes for trumped up fear of mean conservatives.

Good for you, Senate. So, who gets to be on top - the girl? The guy/girl/tranny? One would think this is the only crisis confronting America. No, not at all.

Why are they lumping interracial marriage with same sex marriage? We never had ant laws that I know of that forbid it. They are just playing the race cards for homosexuals. With respect to same sex marriages, they can be domestic partners with the same as marriage provisions in each state. This is wasting time while the whole world is burning down.

Have there been any studies yet on how long these “marriages” between two men last? That’s my inconvenient question. What’s their divorce rate? The little secret the homosexual left does not want you to know is that homosexual men are not known for monogamy.

The Texas Tribune and Army Times obtained a planning document that shows Vietnam-era M113 armored personnel carriers will be sent to 10 locations along the Texas-Mexico border. An order was issued by the Texas Military Department on Thursday that states the Texas Guard will deploy the military vehicles and 50 soldiers will be trained to operate them. This move by Governor Abbott is further escalation of his response to the Biden border crisis. After 18 months of Operation Lone Star with $4B from Texas taxpayers spent to finance its mission, the flood of illegal immigrants continues into Texas. Abbott tweeted about invoking the invasion clause

Besides, I think I churn out pretty darn good content that is worth reading. So there. In another of the long line of “The Narrative™” posts I give you this: I kid you not. FTX–the crypto-fraud firm that just collapsed–is the brainchild of Sam Bankman-Fried, the second largest Democrat donor in the country.

Why Did the DOJ Lie About the Paul Pelosi Attack? 12 replies

The attack on Paul Pelosi, outgoing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s husband, has largely receded into the background of the news cycle. Weeks before the 2022 mid-terms, though, it burst into the national consciousness and was quickly presented as another marker of just how dangerous “right-wing extremism” is. It didn’t matter that the attacker was a nudist protester who lived in a leftwing commune adorned with Black Lives Matter and LGBT effects. The fact that he had allegedly dabbled in some alt-right materials online was enough to hang him on Republicans and Republicans alone. Of course, the truth is often more boring

Is Facebook secretly giving the FBI user information in violation of the the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986? Maybe, according to FBI director Christopher Ray. He can’t say for sure. Oh. Really? The allegations that the FBI is doing a lot of shady things are not exactly new, although they are only sporadically covered in the MSM. After all, the MSM likes censorship–as long as it isn’t censorship of themselves. So if the FBI is helping censor us bad people, that is probably a good thing. Hell, the MSM didn’t even mind when one of their own was called a spy and had his phone records

A new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll found that former President Donald Trump is the clear front-runner in a hypothetical 2024 Republican primary, leading Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis by 18 points. The poll found that 46 percent of Republican voters would support Trump, compared to 28 percent who support DeSantis. Former Vice President Mike Pence, who many speculate will launch a presidential bid in 2024, received just seven percent support. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) came in fourth place in the poll with three percent, while Nikki Haley, Mike Pompeo, and Sen. Tim Scott

I reported earlier how Elon Musk has been bringing back people who were suspended or locked out of Twitter including the Babylon Bee and Dr. Jordan Peterson. That prompted many to ask about other people who had been banned including Alex Jones and President Donald Trump. As we reported earlier, Musk said “no” to Jones. Part of the reason for that might be a question of liability, but it prompted a discussion if he was committed to free speech. Jones himself said that people should still stand by Musk’s efforts to bring openness to the site

Scott noted earlier that Merrick Garland has appointed a special counsel, Jack Smith, to torment Donald Trump. Garland said, I assume with a straight face: It also allows prosecutors and agents to continue their work expeditiously, and to make decisions indisputably guided only by the facts and the law. Indisputably! Right. Smith will be returning to Washington from The Hague, where he is “chief prosecutor for the special court.” That will be good training for his role as the Democratic Party’s agent in destroying Donald Trump.

Dozens of court documents relating to Jeffrey Epstein's associates, including a billionaire businessman, will be made public after a judge ruled the public interest outweighs the right to privacy.

Fox News legal analyst Jonathan Turley said Friday on “America Reports” that potential obstruction charges in the Mar-a-Lago classified documents investigation seemed like the “most menacing” while discussing Attorney General Merrick Garland appointing Special Counsel Jack Smith to oversee the probes into former President Donald Trump. Turley said, “The attorney general referred to obstruction a couple of times. That’s really where the greatest concern probably will lie for the Trump team. I mean, the scope of this is going to contain both the January 6th riot and the election, as well as Mar-a-Lago. As I said earlier, we still have not seen a very strong basis

San Francisco - Elon Musk has reportedly sent a company email to the Twitter engineering team asking anyone who writes software to report to Twitter HQ in San Francisco Friday by 2 p.m. The email was reported by Platformer editor Zoë Schiffer and corroborated by a report in Fortune. The Fortune report also cites a source indicating that between 1,000 to 1,200 employees effectively resigned Thursday by declining to click “yes” on a form Musk sent out requiring employees to commit to working long hours at intense pace if they wished to remain at Twitter. Musk’s demand that Twitter staff go ‘hardcore,’ or leave was apparently not well received

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on Friday named former federal prosecutor Jack Smith as special counsel for two ongoing criminal investigations by the Department of Justice of former President Donald Trump.   Smith’s appointment came three days after Trump, a Republican, announced plans to run for president in 2024.   Trump’s move directly led to Garland’s decison to appoint a special counsel, who will recommend whether criminal charges should be lodged against the ex-president. The attorney general was appointed by Biden, a Democrat who defeated Trump in his 2020 re-election bid. Biden could again face Trump again in the 2024 election. CORRECTION*

Hundreds of Twitter employees apparently quit Thursday after new CEO Elon Musk gave workers an ultimatum: commit to a “hardcore” work environment, or be fired. The reported exodus threw Twitter into more turmoil and came as staffers at the social media giant were given a 5 p.m. Thursday deadline to sign onto Musk’s workplace pledge. The resignations were gleaned from internal Twitter communications, including a poll where 42% of 180 workers surveyed Thursday said they were “Taking the exit option, I’m free,” Reuters reported.

Six years out of office, and the Obamas still esteem themselves oracles of racial justice and authorities of truth concerning America’s flaws. As witnessed at the recent unveiling of the Obamas' official White House portraits, in a photo taken in the Oval Office, both Barack and Michelle are positioned shamelessly front and center. Still smarting from the reproof of 2016, the Obamas take any opportunity to publicly defame the character of the political outsider who upset the collective vision Barack hoped Hillary Clinton would set in stone – as well as the people who voted for him.
