Voters Support Using Reconciliation To Pass Biden’s Plans

By Ted McLaughlin
President Biden has introduced two plans to make life better for most Americans — the American Jobs Plan and the American Families Plan. Those plans would rebuild our infrastructure, create jobs, provide for affordable child care, and do some other things to help ordinary Americans.Unfortunately, Mitch McConnell has declared both plans to be dead in the Senate. He has urged his party members to vote against any effort to cut off the filibuster on both plans. But if he thinks that is earning his party the support of the general public, he is very wrong.The public knows it is the Republicans holding up both plans, and they support […]Read more >Similar articles >

It Looks Like The GOP Is Planning To Steal Future Elections

By Ted McLaughlin
There was no "massive fraud" in the 2020 election, and election officials (even Republican election officials) did a good job of verifying and protecting the election results. Why then, are Republican state legislatures passing laws to give themselves control of state election boards and the power to overturn election results?There could only be one reason. They know they can’t win elections fairly (especially presidential elections) so they are giving themselves the power to steal those elections. And the Republicans in Congress are happy to let them have that power.If this is allowed to happen, it will be the death of our […]Read more >Similar articles >

McCarthy: Trump Wants To Be House Speaker If GOP Regains Majority

By uPolitics.com


House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told Fox News Friday that former President Donald Trump has entertained the idea of becoming a House Speaker if Republicans were to reclaim the House in the 2022 midterms. “You know, I've talked to President Trump many times, he tells me he wants to be speaker, and I think he should be president," McCarthy said. The Constitution does not mandate the Speaker to be a sitting Congress member. So technically, Trump does not need to be a representative to take the position.

The word choice is important because if the Times had framed the article as one about "voter suppression" laws, it would make it much harder for Republicans to "shrug off" the allegations about putting democracy in peril.

Oregon Man Allegedly Forced Woman to Drive Him 2K Miles After Killing Three

By Cheyenne Ubiera
Coos County District Attorney’s Office

An Oregon man’s reign of terror, which allegedly resulted in the deaths of three people, finally ended when he surrendered to police, authorities said Sunday. However, it came after he allegedly forced a woman to drive him more than 2,000 miles to Wisconsin. Laura Johnson was sitting in her car during her lunch break when Oen Evan Nicholson approached her with a gun, forcing her to give him a lift, police said. During the 33-hour ride, Johnson was able to talk Nicholson into turning himself in, her father told a local TV network.

Nicholson allegedly killed his father, Charles Nicholson, on Friday morning. He was driving his father’s pickup truck the same day when he allegedly hit and killed Anthony Oyster and critically injured his wife, Linda. Nicholson is also suspected of shooting and killing Jennifer Davidson at a weed dispensary. He was charged with first-degree murder in the three deaths as well as second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, and failing to help a person injured in a traffic accident.

Nicholson will appear in court in Milwaukee where he turned himself in before being transported to Oregon, the AP reports.

Prince Harry Agreed to Oprah Sitdown Hours After Losing Titles: Report

By Cheyenne Ubiera
WPA Pool/Getty

Another layer behind Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s “bombshell” Oprah Winfrey interview has been revealed. The Sun reports that Harry agreed to the interview within 24 hours of the royal family stripping him of his military titles. “His military roles were very important to him given that he served,” a source told the paper.

Harry served as Captain Wales for two tours in Afghanistan. As part of Harry and Meghan’s exit from their official royal duties, dubbed “Megxit,” the royal family reportedly removed his military titles so they couldn’t be used in promotions for Harry and Meghan’s TV shows or Netflix documentaries. It was originally believed that Harry was furious that his son, Archie, wouldn’t be given royal titles. However, sources tell The Sun that a decision on any possible title won’t be made until after the queen’s death.

Harry is set to return to the U.K. in the next few days to quarantine before the unveiling of a statue dedicated to his mother, Princess Diana, on July 1.
