President Trump’s campaign can’t seem to stop using footage from Russia and Belarus in its ads


The President of the United States calling COVID-19 the “China Virus” is an act of white supremacy.


Barrett says she has “never made a commitment” to striking down the Affordable Care Act after Sen. Kamala Harris asks her if she’s aware of President Trump’s stated intention to nominate a justice who will


Amy Coney Barrett isn’t qualified to be a traffic court judge


Wow. @Reuters reports that @TheJusticeDepartment is suing "Melania and Me" author Stephanie Winston Wolkoff for violating an NDA and seeking to seize all proceeds from the book in the same way it would for a book containing classified information.


Our Supreme Court should prolly be doing more important stuff, than acting like Lex Luthor's Otis.


Justice Barrett refuses to answer whether a president should commit to the peaceful transfer of power. She says that because it's a current "political controversy" since Trump has not committed to doing so.


President Trump files emergency request with Supreme Court to stop release of his tax returns


BREAKING: The Supreme Court halts the 2020 census in a victory for the Trump administration's efforts to end the once-a-decade head count of every U.S. resident early


Breaking WaPo: The federal prosecutor appointed by Barr to review whether Obama-era officials improperly requested the identities of individuals whose names were redacted in intel documents has completed his work without finding any substantive wrongdoing.


New ad from Republican Voters Against Trump: Olivia Troye: "I witnessed Donald Trump and senior White House officials routinely sideline and discredit Dr. Fauci both privately and publicly."


Epic animation of the rise of #COVID19 cases, especially in red states that ignored public health warnings. I’ve written on this phenomenon before — it’s not partisan if politics ==> public health


"No ICU beds were available Tuesday morning in Oklahoma City as COVID-19 cases surge, a central Oklahoma regional health system executive told the city council."


This is truly pathetic. Americans are suffering and he's offering less than ever before.


ALERT: Daniel Harris is ordered held without bond pending trial in a case charging him with plotting to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer


Amy Coney Barrett is a poisonous snake


Replying to @atrupar Under questioning from Chris Coons, Amy Coney Barrett refuses to commit herself to recusing from 2020 election-related cases (Trump has publicly said he thinks seating her is important in case an election-related case comes before SCOTUS)


"’No one believes the Supreme Court is going to strike down the Affordable Care Act,’ McConnell said.” Actually, he asked them to.


She should have said it’s unconstitutional for a president to delay an election but she refused to.


Feinstein asks Barrett if she agrees with Scalia's criticism of the same-sex marriage ruling. Barrett says she won't express her views. She then notes she would not discriminate based on "sexual preference," an offensive term that suggests sexuality is a choice, which it is not.


Barrett has given "off the cuff" answers to other questions without needing to study them. This one she dodges. Interesting.


Judge Barrett won’t answer whether a president has the power to unilaterally delay an election.


Feinstein to Barrett after she declines to say if Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided: “On something that is really a major cause with major effect on over half of the population of this country, who are women … it’s distressing not to get a straight answer.”


Talk to Thomas and Alito.


Sen. Dianne Feinstein: “Do you agree with Justice Scalia’s view that Roe [v. Wade] was wrongly decided?” Barrett declines to answer: “If I express a view on a precedent … it signals to litigants that I might tilt one way or another in a pending case.”


Mark never planned to be a senator, but he knows when it’s time to serve. Serve his family, serve our country, and serve the great state of Arizona.


WATCH: Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court confirmation hearing continues in the Senate. Tune in


California's attorney general and chief elections officer have sent a cease-and-desist letter to Republican officials demanding that they stop using private ballot collection containers marked as 'official' drop boxes, saying the containers are illegal.


This is a LIE. Trump has NEVER had a healthcare plan that protects people with preexisting medical conditions, because ending protections for the sick is how all @GOP healthcare "plans" try to lower costs...but only for the healthy.


Night has fallen, but voting lines continue in Marietta, Georgia. The @WCKitchen team just finished serving dinner. They met someone walking out who arrived at 8am — he waited 12 hours to vote today. We must do better! Until then, #ChefsForThePolls will try to keep everyone fed.


Good morning. Ghislaine Maxwell's appeal seeking to block the release of a deposition that prosecutors allege shows her perjuring herself hits the Second Circuit this afternoon. I will cover it live at 2 p.m. Eastern.


Fact Checker: Biden’s claim that Trump is "pushing to slash Medicare benefits"


Senator Daines voted 5 times to gut protections for Montanans with pre-existing conditions Five times. Let that sink in.


As the U.S. has processed more than one million daily Covid-19 tests four times in the past week, the demands placed on laboratories are exacerbating longstanding staffing shortages


Jon Ossoff to Sen. David Perdue: "Senator, I'm astounded. It's not idle chatter, senator. It's 220,000 Americans killed by a virus. And listen to you — schoolyard insults. Not a shred of empathy. Not a shred of personal responsibility."


Agreed, @LindseyGrahamSC.


Being a shameless liar is pretty disqualifying for a nominee to the highest court.


.@LindseyGrahamSC is trying to scare you to vote for him. I want to inspire you to vote for me. And that makes all the difference. Thanks for having me on this morning,


Trump Funnels Record Subsidies to Farmers Ahead of Election Day Despite an extraordinary government bailout, America’s agriculture sector remains under severe economic pressure.


We deserve a president that takes public health seriously


“(The) Supreme Court ruling, handed down by a narrow majority of Republican justices, is deeply disappointing, and I vehemently disagree with the court's interpretation of the Michigan Constitution," Whitmer said.


“In September 2018, Rubenfeld and his wife, law professor Amy Chua, came under scrutiny for telling female law students that they needed to look and dress a certain way to attain clerkships for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.”


New: Trump’s trade representative joined the administration with one mission: Bring factory jobs back from overseas. The results so far? Endless trade wars, alienated allies, and a manufacturing recession.


Here in Kentucky, we know we feel like we've been sucker punched.


By Oct 12, 2020: 10 million early votes have been cast. By Oct 16, 2016: 1.4 million early votes had been cast.


In Belarus, women have become the face and driving force of a movement aimed at toppling the country’s strongman president, Aleksandr Lukashenko.

”China was involved in annihilation of political freedom in Hong Kong. China has grossly abused the UN human rights founding principles. If this were an election for a UN human rights abusers council, it would be more than proper to vote for China.” The new ‘great reset’ UN


Over 100 leading scholars have called for a united front in defence of academic freedoms amid increasing pressure from the Chinese government since the passing of Hong Kong’s National Security Law.


Who supports China on Hong Kong’s National Security Law - and who doesn't?


Vote him out, Kentucky! McGrath: Mitch McConnell “is basically bought off” by big pharma ... McConnell: “Why don't we go on to the next topic.”#DitchMitch


Five states saw COVID-19 rates increase by 50 percent in a single week


Block Trump and lower his appearances in the timelines of Americans. His Twitter account is straight hostile foreign propaganda. Block him.


FOX is Trump TV


McConnell on Amy McGrath's Senate campaign: "I think her entire campaign is, 'She's a marine, she's a mom and I've been there too long.'"


BREAKING: Johnson & Johnson’s #COVID19 vaccine trial of 60,000 has been suddenly paused due to a new unexplained illness. Study enrollment website also frozen while DSMB (data safety monitoring board) reviews. to be updated.


We're facing a national crisis. There's nothing funny about 214,000 Americans dying.


I'm a Marine AND I'm a mom. And yes, Mitch, you've been there too long


Trump’s intel chief is undermining U.S. intelligence. He should resign, writes @MichaelJMorell and Mike Vickers


You know, @AmyMcGrathKY is not wrong here.


"I got it wrong. And it hurts my heart. I mean, it truly hurts my heart." These are the white women voters Trump has lost in battleground Pennsylvania.
