PALM BEACH, Florida – As the November 8, 2022, election night results rolled in to Mar-a-Lago, the resort membership club and primary residence of 45th U.S. President Donald J. Trump, he was uncharacteristically reserved in his comments and interactions with those in attendance.
With some polls closing as early as 7 p.m. Eastern time, including the swing state of Georgia, it became evident early on in the evening that the forecasted “red tsunami” was going to fall well short of predictions. Read More
In the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision that returned the question of abortion limits back to the states, unofficial election results in five states show voters opted to codify abortion as a constitutional right, defend expanded access to abortion, and deny lifesaving care to infants born alive despite an abortion attempt.
More than 133,000 Vermont voters – about 72 percent – appear to have supported a ballot measure that made the state the first to enshrine abortion in its constitution. Nearly 42,000 voters, or about 22 percent, voted against the measure, while 9,000, or about 5 percent, left the ballot question blank, The Hill reported. Read More
In a society that retains trust in its institutions, the most authoritative source for news and information would probably be the publicly funded media property that is supposed to adhere to the highest standards of journalistic objectivity. Here in America, that would have been PBS. Except it isn’t. The American media, by and large, along with Silicon Valley’s social media communications oligopolies, are doing everything they can to deny American voters the opportunity to politically realign their nation.

President Joe Biden on Wednesday suggested that he plans to mount a major effort to outlaw broad classes of firearms in the United States just one day after a better-than-expected showing of Democrats in the 2022 midterms.
At a press conference at the White House on Wednesday afternoon, responding to a question from the Associated Press’s Zeke Miller about what he “intend[s] to do differently” to persuade more voters to back his various agendas, Biden said: “Nothing. Because they’re finding out what we’re doing. The more they know about what we’re doing, the more support there is.” Read More
Federal agencies can “trap” businesses and individuals for years in proceedings before administrative law judges (ALJs) who work for the agencies, rarely rule against them and can’t be removed by the president, constituting “here-and-now constitutional injuries,” according to lawyers for these targets.
Nonlethal weapons supplier Axon Enterprises and certified public accountant Michelle Cochran want the right to challenge the constitutionality of Federal Trade Commission and Securities & Exchange Commission ALJs in real courts, before the expense and emotional drag compels them to settle regardless of their guilt or the legitimacy of the proceedings.

Candidates who ran on an America First agenda fought a close fight in Tuesday’s congressional elections, with at least the House poised to fall into the GOP’s hands and possibly the Senate flipping out of the left’s control.

A major organization dedicated to the preservation of the American family has endorsed Congressman Jim Banks for House majority whip.

Stocks slid significantly Wednesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeting nearly 650 points, as key midterm races were still being counted and cryptocurrency market fears shook investors out of a three-day rally, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.
All three major indices fell, with the Dow falling 2%, the S&P 500 dropping 2.1% and the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index plunging 2.5% by the end of the business day, the WSJ reported. Investors anticipated that the U.S. government would be gridlocked by Republicans gaining control of at least one branch of Congress, a status typically considered good for business, and though Republicans are still expected to gain control of the House of Representatives, their control is not expected to be as commanding as predicted.
