The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected an emergency appeal from former President Trump seeking to shield his tax returns from House Democrats, capping a multiyear legal battle and paving the way for the release of his tax returns. The order — which had no noted dissents — was in response to an appeal Trump filed with the Supreme Court late last month after a lower court declined to reverse its ruling mandating that he turn over his tax records to the House Ways and Means Committee. Chief Justice John Roberts had temporarily blocked their release in a Nov. 1 order while the court considered the matter.

Yep! What's good for the Goose, is good for the Gander! Open that Door and expect the House Ways and whatever to demand the Taxes from BIDEN first, then how about having some fun and go for Pelosi's next! These Democrats are nuts if they think the Republicans are not going to jump all over this unexpected Gift!

If the Rebublicans i the House had any brains and courage, they would subpoena the liberal Supreme Joke's Just-Uses' tax returns. Make them live by the laws they pass.

This action by the federal judiciary confirms my belief that the Income Tax must be abolished on many grounds, one of which being that it is an unjustifiable search by the government into a person's private affairs. I don't believe it is the government's business, nor anyone else's how much a person earns, keeps, spends, invests, or pays in taxes. If the government wants to charge someone with a crime or a violation, it is the governm,ent's responsibility to prove it. It's not the citizen's responsibility to disprove it. If the Income Tax allows a political party to wage war on someone based on their tax returns, then the Income Tax must go.

Yeah! Let's look at all politicians. Especially the ones with non-profits/foundations/etc. Is it money laundering? Many years ago, my alma mater received 5G from some Clinton funding to applaud the college for some initiative that the college did. (Vote buying in WV didn't work.)

Getting his tax returns is legal but not lawful. The Supreme Court are useful tools of the left. Clueless and gutless.

SO MUCH for being Secure in your Papers... Seems our SCOTUS folks can't read, let me help. -------------- U.S. Constitution - Fourth Amendment The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. I don't see a thing about Political Hacks getting someone else's private papers etc.........

Chances are when Trump’s tax returns finally come into possession of the House of Representatives that body of Congress will be run by the Republicans and not the Democrats, since a legal precedent has now been set, and turnabout is “FairPlay” there is nothing to keep the Congressional Republicans from demanding the release to them of Biden’s, Obama’s and Clinton’s tax returns.

With only a few days left until the 2022 midterms, Newsweek laments a new poll by Redfield and Wilton Strategies showing that 40 percent of Americans still believe that the 2020 presidential election was "rigged or stolen." (snip) Newsweek buries this particular poll's more interesting observations. For example, only 36 percent of respondents disagree that the 2020 election was rigged or stolen. Of that group, more than one in three find it "understandable" that others might believe that the election was rigged or stolen. Another 15 percent of respondents neither agreed nor disagreed, and 8 percent signified that they "didn't know."

Oprah Winfrey said on Thursday that she was endorsing Democratic Lt. Gov. John Fetterman over Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz in the Pennsylvania Senate race. While Winfrey is a Democrat herself, it's notable because Oz first came to prominence as a health expert on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" before he got his own talk show in 2009, which was produced her company Harpo. His show ended in January. "I’ll tell you all this, if I lived in Pennsylvania, I would have already cast my vote for John Fetterman for many reasons," Winfrey said during a virtual conversation with community leaders.

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News the weekend before last, Vance blasted Ryan’s “kill and confront” MAGA comments and doubled down on his “extreme rhetoric” as just another attempt from the left to engage in political violence, after a debate this month where Ryan included Vance in a group of people he labeled as “extremists.”

Beauty pageant organization Miss United States of America LLC cannot be forced to allow biological males who identify as transgender women to compete, an federal appeals court ruled Wednesday. The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that allowing transgender people to compete in the pageant would interfere with its ability to show “the ideal vision of American womanhood,” according to a report from Reuters. The lawsuit was brought forth by Anita Green, a transgender rights activist, who reportedly claimed that the pageant’s policy of only allowing “natural born women” violates an anti-discrimination law based on gender identity in Oregon.

This is a bitter pill for most Vineyard residents to swallow. The island’s six towns have all declared themselves to be sanctuary communities.

Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a Republican senator who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump and was up for reelection, beat challenger Kelly Tshibaka to secure her fourth full Senate term. Murkowski is considered to be one of the more centrist Republican voices in Congress, and her win could help President Joe Biden pass his agenda as well as extend her clout in the closely divided Senate. Neither Murkowski nor Tshibaka, the top two candidates in the four-person race, reached the 50% threshold needed for an outright win, which meant the winner was decided by ranked-choice tabulation that was announced on Wednesday.

President Biden’s granddaughter Naomi’s White House wedding was “a private affair,” and off-limits to the press. Well, except for Vogue. The White House press pool wasn’t allowed into The People’s House, but the fashion magazine got the full spread, the private pics, the kisses, cake cutting and all the pomp and circumstance. The media is furious, but they shouldn’t be surprised. This is a president that rarely does a press conference, that prefers TikTok and Instagram influencers to “60 Minutes.” Of course they pulled a bait-and-switch

And we will determine whether we can begin an impeachment inquiry.” The stark warning is a significant change in tone from McCarthy

Late on Tuesday night, court filings by the attorneys for the alleged shooter from the LGBTQ night club in Colorado Springs, Colorado revealed the shooter is non-binary and goes by they/them pronouns. After spending the past two days smearing conservative Christians for allegedly inspiring this apparent attack against gay people, CNN Tonight anchor Alisyn Camerota was clearly stunned as she watched her network’s narrative come crashing down. Breaking the news to her audience, Camerota begrudgingly reported that the “attorneys for the accused shooter, Anderson Lee Aldrich, say in new court filings tonight that the suspect now identifies as non-binary.”

Since Rep.

Senator Manchin’s dirty ‘Inflation Increase Act’ deal, its betrayal of coal country, army of IRS agents, and inflationary spending has paid off some of his backers and made Bill Gates very happy. Gates was described as having personally lobbied Senator Manchin and Schumer in “anticipation of a rare moment in which significant federal dollars might be secured for the clean-energy transition.” Billions of those dollars, ripped out of the hands of truck drivers, veterans and small businessmen, will have been “secured” for Gates and his ventures. The Microsoft founder was described as having “tapped into a relationship with Manchin that he’d cultivated for at least three years”.
