Multi-million dollar contract Mike Pence will review his life, his work and “his Christian experience” and “many important moments in management,” Trump promises to the author, who announces he has signed a two-book deal. “The release of the first...
    DONALD Trump has told his allies that he will run again for president in 2024, and could announce it before the new year. A source familiar with internal discussions told Reuters of Trump's plans on Wednesday. ⚠️ Read our US election live blog for the latest news & updates 2Trump might run againCredit: Getty Images - Getty The US Constitution allows presidents to serve two four-year terms and they do not have to be consecutive. A long list of Republicans are said to be considering a run for the 2024 presidential election, including Trump’s own vice president, Mike Pence. US news media have called the 2020 race for Biden, but Trump is contesting the results in a series of legal challenges in a handful of battleground states - in an attempt to back his unsupported claims of widespread voting fraud and irregularities. Trump on Wednesday endorsed Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel to stay on in her position, in what one source said could be a prelude to Trump announcing plans to run for president in 2024. 2He has...

    (CNN)This week is a kind of Hell Week, figuratively and literally.Our demons are coming out. The campaign signs dotting the streets in our neighborhoods are strewn in with gravestones and mock murder scenes and skeletons that this year feel a little more personal, having had death hang like a cloud over this year. We've all spent months slogging through a presidential election campaign and a global pandemic, and this Saturday feels like an emotionally climactic night, a morbid moment punctuating a year of death and suspense. Halloween, a daylight saving time change and a full moon all align on a singular night.While trick-or-treating and Halloween parties are curtailed this year due to physical distancing and concerns of spreading coronavirus, scholars say that acknowledging, if not fully celebrating, a night devoted to the demented is a useful escape valve. It's a way to purge the year's emotions before we declare our political intentions on November 3.Allowing for a little intentional chaos in our spirit might be a good thing. As the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche wrote, "One must have chaos in...
    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is planning on deploying its agents across the country in search of undocumented immigrants who have not voluntarily left the country. A memo obtained by CNN indicated that ICE will be searching for 'illegal aliens who broke their commitment or promise to the United States by failing to leave the country on an order of voluntary departure.'  It will be the third major operation targeting undocumented immigrants in the past month, just weeks before the presidential election on Nov. 3. President Trump made controlling illegal immigration a focus of his administration - targeting sanctuary city policies around the nation, rallying for a border wall and implementing a controversial family separation policy at the border. In the 'Operation Broken Promise' memo, ICE said that 'unfortunately, over the years, thousands of aliens have accepted the benefit of VD [voluntary departure] without fulfilling their promise to the Government - failing to timely depart the United States.'   SEE VIDEO BELOW  ICE agents have arrested 300 undocumented immigrants since September 28 in sanctuary cities. At least 172 were detained from October...
    A 102-year-old woman who has voted in every presidential election since the 1940 match-up between Franklin D. Roosevelt and Wendell Willkie wouldn't let even a pandemic stop her from casting her ballot this year. To play it extra-safe, Bea Lumpkin from Chicago dressed up in head-to-toe PPE to deliver her mail-in ballot the mailbox last week, and made sure to document the moment for social media.  'That’s why I had my grandson take a photo of me, because if I could come out at the age of 102 and face a pandemic [to vote], nobody should have an excuse,' she told Good Morning America.

    Senator Lindsey Graham, the chair of the Judiciary Committee, said Monday on "Hannity" that Republicans have the votes to confirm a nominee to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Supreme Court seat before the election.  "We got the votes to confirm Justice Ginsburg's replacement before the election," Graham said. "We are going to move forward in the committee. We're going to report the nomination out of the committee to the floor of the United States Senate so we can vote before the election. That's the constitutional process."  Republicans hold a slim three-seat majority in the Senate. Two GOP senators have said they do not support a vote before the election, but four Republicans would have break with the party to prevent a vote from coming to the floor. Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, who broke with the party to vote in favor of convicting President Trump on one article of impeachment, has not yet weighed in. If the vote is split 50-50, Vice President Mike Pence would cast the tie-breaking vote.  Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox Senator Cory...
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), during a speech on the Senate floor Monday, debunked the Democrat “myth” that there is not sufficient time to examine and confirm a Supreme Court nominee prior to the presidential election, contending that “history and precedent make that perfectly clear.” Speaking from the Senate floor on Monday, McConnell railed against what he called the left’s “pre-vacancy” threats and moved to debunk the widespread narrative that the Senate does not have sufficient time to consider and confirm President Trump’s forthcoming Supreme Court nominee. “We’re already hearing incorrect claims that there is not sufficient time to examine and confirm a nominee. We can debunk this myth in about 30 seconds,” the Kentucky lawmaker said, citing a handful of examples. “As of today, there are 43 days until November 3 and 104 days until the end of this Congress. The late, iconic Justice John Paul Stevens was confirmed by the Senate 19 days after this body formally received his nomination — 19 days from start to finish,” he began: Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, another iconic jurist, was...
    Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner, up for reelection in a swing state, said Saturday the nation needs to “reflect” on the legacy of late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg “before the politics begin.” Ginsburg, 87, died Friday due to complications from pancreatic cancer. The vacancy she left immediately begged the question of whether her seat would be filled before or after the next term of the presidency. "I hope before the politics begin — because there will be plenty of time for that – that we have some time for this country to reflect on a great woman who led our nation’s highest court and the work that she has done for this nation, whether you agree or not," Gardner said. MARKEY THREATENS TO PACK SUPREME COURT, ABOLISH FILIBUSTER IF TRUMP FILLS SEAT “There is time for debate and there is time for politics, but the time for now is to pray for the family and to keep [them] in our hearts and prayers as we mourn as a nation,” he said at a town hall Saturday. Gardner said he agrees with moderate...
    President Donald Trump said in an interview Tuesday he would 'absolutely' nominate a new Supreme Court Justice should a vacancy occur during his final 162 days in office.  'You mean if something happened like now?' Trump asked when radio host Hugh Hewitt asked him if he would nominate a justice, an issue Trump is already seeking to elevate in the 2020 campaign.  'Absolutely, I’d do it. Sure,' Trump says. The topic is more than academic, with multiple aging justices on the court, including 87-year old Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was recently released from the hospital after undergoing cancer treatments.   'I would move quickly. Why not? I mean, they would. The Democrats would if they were in this position,' Trump told Hewett.  President Trump says he would 'move quickly' if there is another Supreme Court vacancy RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Have we FINALLY turned the COVID corner?
