Bannon's Attempt to Justify His Seditious "Crib" Statement Produces Deeply Incriminating Admission

9/26/2021
Recent reporting revealed that Steve Bannon advised then President Donald Trump to "kill the Biden presidency in the crib." This is the language of seditions, rebellion and insurrection. Bannon then made his circumstances even worse by first admitting on his podcast that he made the statement and then trying to justify it by invoking a poll that showed 42% of the American people question the legitimacy of Joe Biden's election win. Here is why Bannon's attempt to justify his sedition...

Supreme Court Gives Texas Green Light To Violate Women's Constitutional Right To Choose

9/2/2021
In a move that is deeply damaging to the credibility and legitimacy of the US Supreme Court, the Court declined to stop an unconstitutional Texas law from going into effect. The Texas authorities passed a law saying a woman can not have an abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected - at about 6 weeks of the pregnancy - which directly violates the Supreme Court precedent of Roe v. Wade. In a very real sense, the Supreme Court is allowing the state of Texas to violate the constitutional...
