In a stunning and unprecedented decision, the Colorado Supreme Court removed former President Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 ballot, ruling that he isn’t an eligible presidential candidate because of the 14th Amendment’s “insurrectionist ban.” The ruling was 4-3. The ruling will be placed on hold pending appeal until January 4, pending a certain appeal to the US Supreme Court, which could settle the matter for the nation

I wish that the Supreme Court had the power to remove idiot soon to be overturned judges from the bench. THis would solve the issues of politically motivated rulings very quickly. Bye bye 4 judges in Colorado, bye to idiot NYC judge Engoron in New York City, good bye to Judge Chutkin in Atlanta. I would also love to see them smack down the Judge Beryl Howell in Washington DC.

Billionaire Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates was pictured posing with one of Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers — part of the well-connected sex offender’s use of photos to manipulate the women he abused and control the narrative around his nefarious behavior, according to a new report. The photo — believed to be among the first showing Gates with an alleged Epstein victim — was allegedly taken by the shady financier himself at Gates’ Seattle office in March 2014, years after Epstein’s 2008 conviction in Florida for soliciting and procuring a minor for prostitution, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Hamas is currently fighting to keep on ruling Gaza and the opportunity to regroup, rearm and destroy Israel -- which is why it is pleading for a ceasefire. Hamas's eyes are now set on the Biden administration and the United Nations, which they hope will prevent Israel from stopping the Hamas reign of abuse. Did anyone call for a ceasefire when the US was routing ISIS in Syria and Iraq, or demanded that the US end its military campaign by a certain date? The Hamas official... is saying that Palestinian terrorism pays -- even the US administration is turning against Israel.

Half a century ago, George Orwell, writing on literary censorship, wrote that “unpopular ideas can be silenced, and inconvenient facts kept dark, without the need for any official ban.” That dynamic now broadly extends to an opaque network of government agencies and self-proclaimed anti-misinformation groups that have repressed online speech. There’s no official ban on discussing the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines or criticizing American involvement in the Ukraine-Russia war, but editors and journalists have realized that writing on such topics can come at a cost. News publishers have been demonetized and shadow-banned for reporting dissenting views and the bureaucratic means for enforcing this form of control are under increasing scrutiny.

The Biden administration made two virtue-signaling proclamations at last week’s COP28 conference in Dubai it says will help save the planet from climate change. The policies aren’t likely to change the planet’s temperature by even one-tenth of a degree, but they might just destroy the 21st-century American industrial economy as we know it. First, Team Biden announced it will stop production of all new coal plants in the United States. This comes on the heels of President Biden’s Environmental Protection Agency saying this year it would impose new power-plant emission regulations that are virtually impossible for coal plants to comply with. The bottom line: no more coal. Period.

“I did not leave with optimism,” Mayor Adams confessed last week, after spending a day in Washington cadging spare change. Bonaparte might have said the same of his visit to Russia, in 1812. But it gets worse: “It’s going to be up to New Yorkers to navigate this challenge that we are facing,” he said – the challenge being the migration-driven fiscal tsunami now bearing down on his city. The thing about tsunamis, of course, is that they are not navigable. Pretending otherwise, as a matter of public policy, is either foolish or dishonest. Pick one.

Based on an avalanche of leaked emails, the two news organizations showed how the IEI had been created by the mullahs’ regime in 2014 “to improve Tehran’s image abroad.”

The 4-3 decision marks the first time in history that Section 3 of the 14th Amendment - which disqualifies insurrectionists from office - has been used to eliminate a presidential candidate. Justices Richard L. Gabriel, Melissa Hart, Monica Márquez and William W. Hood III said that they had 'little difficulty' in determining that the events of January 6 were an insurrection and that Trump did 'engage' in that alleged rebellion.

In a letter dated Wednesday, California lieutenant governor Eleni Kounalakis (D.) urged California secretary of state Shirley Weber (D.) to “explore every legal option to remove former President Donald Trump from California’s 2024 presidential primary ballot,” given the Colorado supreme court’s decision. On Tuesday, the court voted 4–3 to disqualify Trump from appearing on the Centennial State’s ballot because he allegedly incited an insurrection on January 6, 2021.

Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) was a source of embarrassment for the Republican Party. He won the 2022 Pennsylvania Senate race despite an abysmal debate with Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz and being mentally and physically unwell. The former mayor of Braddock nearly died during that election from a severe stroke. The GOP couldn’t clinch a win against a candidate who was visibly suffering from a debilitating health crisis. Fetterman was hospitalized shortly after being sworn in, which didn’t do anything to neutralize the narrative that he wasn’t healthy enough to serve. Yet, after his stint in the hospital for mental health, Fetterman has become one of the most level-headed
