Trump 2024

This past weekend, the Senate wrapped up President Donald J. Trump’s second impeachment hearing. Unlike the President’s first Senate impeachment trial, which took about 3 weeks, this one was done in less than a week.

The House Managers’ defense took days to show their evidence. Their argument primarily rested in clips and screenshots of President Trump at rallies or his tweets and the January 6th Capitol insurrection. While the event at the Capitol was certainly lamentable, the Managers were unable to garner enough Republican support to prove that Trump’s influence led to the violence.

Today marks President Biden's first month in office. One of the main interests we have at the Catholic League is tracking how various administrations handle the issue of human rights. Though it is very early in his first term, some things are becoming quite clear.

President Biden used his first day in office to discuss human rights. However, he did not speak to this issue in a broad manner; rather, he limited his discussion to the rights of homosexuals and transgender persons. This tells us a great deal about his priorities.

February gave Texas the cold shoulder this weekend as an extreme winter storm pounded the entire state. As of this morning, power had not been restored to more than 4 million Texans. Hundreds of thousands have also lost water after the water treatment plants in Fort Worth, Abilene, and elsewhere suffered power outages. A handful of deaths from the cold have already been reported, although we may not know the true toll until the state digs itself out.

As President Biden and his Congressional allies push forward their massive $1.9 trillion COVID package, Republicans in both the House and Senate are trying even harder to stop it. With the Senate’s current split, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer moved forward a legislative procedure called “budget reconciliation” in order to pass their wish list with only 51 votes in the Senate. Initially, a shell budget is passed triggering a risky amendment process in the Senate known as “vote-a-rama.” This intense action played out overnight for 15 hours last week with both sides offering amendment after amendment. To our surprise, Republicans were dealt some wins.

Members of Congress are seeking to pass an extreme and unconstitutional gun control bill that would effectively nullify the Second Amendment.

Here are the highlights of H.R. 127’s provisions:

  • It creates a national firearm registry that anyone – including every level of law enforcement and the military – can access.
  • The registry would require one to tell the government exactly where one’s firearms are stored.
  • One would need a license simply to own a firearm.
  • Mandatory “psychological evaluations” are required receive this license.
  • One would need to pay $800 for “firearm insurance.”
  • It would enact extreme ammunition restrictions, including a ban on magazines more than 10 rounds.
  • Violating the above provisions could lead to a prison sentence of up to 40 years and a fine of up to $150,000.

You might be a Leftist if you lay awake at night brainstorming which cherished American tradition to sabotage next. Back in November, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban suspended the playing of the national anthem before home games. Because stands sit empty due to coronavirus restrictions, nobody noticed until Tuesday.

There's no good reason why the "Star-Spangled Banner" should be controversial. Do people seriously wish they were British subjects instead? Do they resent that America is the "land of the free and the home of the brave?"
