President Joe Biden on Wednesday raised clear concern that the Supreme Court may decide to strike down his student debt cancellation program, one day after several conservative justices expressed skepticism about the administration’s authority. “I’m confident we’re on the right side of the law,” Biden told CNN when asked if he was confident the administration would prevail in the case. “I’m not confident of the outcome of the decision yet.” Biden’s comments, which he made as he departed the White House for the House Democratic retreat in Baltimore, come the day after oral arguments on two challenges to the program to cancel up to $20,000 in student loan debt held

He DOES NOT have the authority to make this decision. Hell, NO ONE in DC has this authority. How's about defunding and removing the entire Federal Department of Education...!

Lets hope the SC does the right thing and determines Joey's bailout as unconstitutional. God only know what his next EO will be if they let it stand.

From what I have read about the hearing, I see a 6-3 ruling against Biden. Even Roberts wasn't buying this nonsense.

“I’m confident we’re on the right side of the law,” Biden I'm confident that being on the right side of the law is a foreign concept to all members of the Biden Crime Family, in every way. In regard to standing, we all have standing since the taxpayers will be on the hook for repaying it.

The students entered into a contract. A contract obligates one to honor the terms of the contract. Is that so hard to understand?

Not confident? If the SCOTUS decision is not 9-0 against this illegal action, there is little hope.

He graduated at the bottom of his class and clearly did not learn anything while attending. The only laws he is truly familiar with are those on extortion and that is because he is so adept at breaking them. The man is a criminial and is a member, and I say "member" of a criminal family because fhe is not smart enough to lead anything including this nation.

Oh and why aren't the colleges and universities forgiving these loans from their billion dollar endowments. Their degrees are worthless pieces of paper at this point and acually the students probably have a case for fraud, since they sure didn't get an education in anything but communism and poster painting.

Chances are the Supreme Court will issue a legal “haymaker” against Biden’s unconstitutional student loan forgiveness program. But some of the Biden proposal may remain, like lowering the amount or percentage of disposable income used to calculate future student loan payments from 10% to 5%. But at this point who knows!

Biden will not be confident until we are another half-trillion dollars in debt caused by another wasted expenditure on the lowest life members of our population. What is wrong with this lunatic and the people who still support him? If he was honest and competent he would not have to buy votes.

Obama was not confident that the Supreme Court would uphold Obamacare until Roberts, Sotomayor or Kagen informed someone in the Whitehouse that Roberts changed his vote a few weeks before the final 5-4 decision was completed. It's clear than the final opinion (upholding Obamacare) was hastily amended to change the previously well written minority opinion to become the poorly written majority opinion. After learning of Robert's vote swing, Obama's immense ego would not let him keep his mouth shut, whereby he tipped his hand by changing his (publicly announced) down in the mouth attitude from "I'm not certain . . . " to his cringeworthy grinning "I'm confident the Affordable Care Act will be upheld."

Texas’ woke capital, Austin, is in the midst of a policing crisis with over 300 vacancies and cops quitting because they feel disrespected, multiple sources tell The Post. “We’re right there with Portland and Seattle and San Francisco as being one of those places where if you’re at all conservative or in law enforcement, it’s become a hostile place,” Lt. Brian Moon, who retired last month, told The Post of the city he protected for 23 years. Another 77 officers are expected to retire before the end of March — on top of 264 existing vacancies, according to the Austin Police Association. Austin Police Department’s staffing is so bad,l

A bill in California's state assembly takes aim at paper receipts and if passed, would ban businesses from handing customers receipts unless they specifically ask for it. In the reintroduced "Skip the Slip" bill, businesses would be charged up to $300 if they continue to pass out paper receipts. Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, introduced Assembly Bill 1347, and shared that his bill is an easy way to reduce paper waste in the state while addressing consumers’ frustrations with excessively long receipts.

Walgreens clarified Thursday that it is not distributing abortion pills anywhere, including in states where they remain legal. The nation’s second-largest pharmacy explained to Politico that it made this decision out of an abundance of caution amid a shifting policy landscape post Roe. However, Walgreens does intend to seek certification from the Food and Drug Administration to distribute abortion pills in certain states, but it declined to say which. The move follows two dozen Republican attorneys general writing to Walgreens in February warning it not to distribute what has become the most popular abortion method.

Amazon has paused construction on its second headquarters near Washington DC, as the internet retail giant slashes costs and makes its largest ever job cuts. The indefinite pause affects the second phase of construction on the massive complex, known as HQ2, that Amazon is constructing in Arlington, Virginia, the company said Friday. The first phase of the project, two office towers known as Metropolitan Park, is due for completion in June, and will be able to house some 14,000 workers. The delay impacts a larger development planned across the street, called PenPlace, consisting of three 22-story office towers and a 350-foot architectural showpiece known as the Helix.

WALTERBORO, S.C.   — South Carolina attorney Alex Murdaugh was sentenced to life in prison without parole Friday, a day after he was convicted of murder in the shooting deaths of his wife and son. Judge Clifton Newman asked Murdaugh if he had anything he wanted to say before sentencing him to two consecutive life terms, and the one-prominent lawyer maintained his innocence. “As I tell you again, I respect this court. But I am innocent. I would never under any circumstances hurt my wife Maggie and I would never under any circumstances hurt my son Paul Paul,” Murdaugh responded.

Rep. Thomas Massie was so eager for Donald Trump’s endorsement in a contested primary three years ago that he ran TV ads targeted at the then-president in Florida to win his support. Today, Massie is all but shunning Trump and his comeback campaign. In fact, the Kentucky Republican attended a retreat last weekend for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. “Ron DeSantis is the best governor there ever was,” he said when asked if he planned to endorse in the 2024 presidential primary. The Kentucky Republican is far from the only one-time Trump ally who’s staying away from the former president, despite his lead in every major poll so far.

The mayor of College Park, Maryland, Patrick Wojahn, was arrested Thursday on 56 child pornography possession and distribution charges. The 47-year gay Democrat faces 40 counts of possession of exploitative child material and 16 counts of distribution of exploitative child material, a press release from the Prince George’s County Police Department (PGPD) said. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children first alerted the department that a social media account operating within the county was distributing “suspected child pornography” on February 17, according to the PGPD. Through an investigation, authorities determined that the account belonged to the sitting mayor. On February 28, the PGPD

Disney is guilty of many things, but chief among them is its inability to learn from its mistakes. In fact, it seems more adamant about buckling down on them. Among these mistakes are its inability to make a movie without having it check certain social justice boxes. Race swaps, feminist messaging, and woke overtones are a plague within every modern Disney movie and television show. These political inclusions drag down box office numbers and viewership levels by leaps and bounds, and yet the House of Mouse can’t stop mainlining radical leftist politics into its system. The other thing it can’t stop doing is attacking its would-be customers and blaming people’s dislike

This is news to almost everyone. I’m guessing the ardent left-wingers in the White House took off their socialist shades for a second or two to take a steely-eyed glance at the 2024 election landscape and realized some face-saving was in order. Perhaps they simply ran the numbers and realized math and prevailing public opinion weren’t in their favor. Initially, 31 Congressional Democrats crossed the aisle to vote with Republicans on the House bill, so it clearly had asome bi-partisan appeal from the get-go. Yet, Senate Democrats signaled their opposition and Biden had said he opposed rescinding it (not quite threatened a veto flat-out)

The flawed work was the product of the “Global Engagement Center,” which was created in 2017 by the State Department but worked with the FBI, CIA, US Strategic Command and other agencies, independent journalist Matt Taibbi wrote in the 17th installment of the series. The Twitter users who were flagged reportedly included Cuban immigrant Marysel Urbanik, who tweets from the “JerseyGirl Conservative” account. “This is un-American,” Urbanik told Taibbi. “They do this in places that don’t believe in free speech.”

A stunning report in Wednesday’s Washington Post details the tensions between FBI agents and Justice Department attorneys over the August raid of former President Donald Trump’s Florida home, Mar-a-Lago. FBI officials were leery of the plan, and pleaded for a more measured approach, while DOJ prosecutors were hell-bent on a surprise incursion to search for classified documents: Prosecutors argued that new evidence suggested Trump was knowingly concealing secret documents at his Palm Beach, Fla., home and urged the FBI to conduct a surprise raid at the property. But two senior FBI officials who would be in charge of leading the search resisted the plan as too combative
