Kinzinger Defends Yang After Contentious Interview with CNN’s Acosta: ‘Our System is Failing, Ma…Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) came to Andrew Yang’s defense after the Forward Party founder had a contentious interview with CNN’s Jim Acosta, but the congressman’s tweet drew its own criticism from those skeptical of the new independent party. Yang appeared on Sunday’s episode of CNN Newsroom and faced a barrage of tough questions from Acosta regarding a series of tweets he posted in the aftermath of the FBI executing a search warrant on former President Donald Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago, and on the recent launch of the Forward Party. In one particularly heated exchange, Acosta grilled Yang about the party’s lack of policy positions: “Andrew, you’re going to need policy positions at some point,” noted Acosta, pressuring him to give further details about his platform. “The Forward Party has not a left or right, but…

The Kansas Abortion Shocker

The Kansas Abortion ShockerEarlier this summer, when the Supreme Court ended a 50-year federal right to abortion, Democrats had no choice but to place their faith in voters to rebel against the ruling. Until tonight, however, no one could definitively say whether Roe v. Wade outrage would carry over to the polls.Tonight in Kansas, Americans got their first hint of that response, and it was a resounding victory for abortion rights. Voters there decisively rejected an amendment that would have allowed the state’s Republican-controlled legislature to ban abortion. With more than 95 percent of precincts reporting, the “No” vote was leading by nearly 18 points. The surprising result keeps abortion legal in a GOP stronghold, one of the few states in the region where conservative majorities have not already outlawed the procedure.Politically, the outcome is sure to reverberate across the country and buoy the Democrats’ bid to capitalize on the…

Iran-backed newspaper threatens Trump, Pompeo assassinations after Salman Rushdie stabbingThe propaganda newspaper Kayhan, the mouthpiece for Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, announced in a blaring editorial on its front page that the assassination of President Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in the cards.  In an editorial on Saturday, the newspaper wrote, “The attack on [Rushdie] shows it is not a difficult job to take similar revenge on Trump and Pompeo and from now on they will feel more in danger for their lives.”  On Friday, 24-year-old New Jersey resident Hadi Matar, who showed great sympathy for the Iranian regime on Facebook, was charged with attempted murder in the attack on the famous American British novelist Salman Rushdie in upstate New York.  The fiery anti-Western paper wrote in its editorial, “God has taken his revenge on Rushdie.”  BIDEN ADMIN CONTINUES NEGOTIATING WITH IRAN DESPITE PLANS TO…

GOP Senator Says Biden ‘Would Be Better off Selling Catheters on Late Night TV’ Than Being Presi...

GOP Senator Says Biden ‘Would Be Better off Selling Catheters on Late Night TV’ Than Being Presi…Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) deployed some characteristically colorful language during a discussion on President Joe Biden’s popularity – or lack thereof, even among members of his own party. Some Democratic candidates in this year’s midterm elections have kept the president at arm’s length. Appearing on Monday’s Jesse Watters Primetime, the senator told guest host Sean Duffy that Biden is ill-suited to the presidency. “The liberals are bailing on Joe Biden in 2024,” Duffy told Kennedy. “Why so?” “Some politicians in Washington, D.C – not all of them, but some – care more about their problems than yours,” Kennedy began. “And the thing they want most in the world is to be reelected. Certain members of president Biden’s own party are running from him because they think President Biden will hurt their re-election.” The senator…

Opinion | The Supreme Court Wants to End the Separation of Church and State

Opinion | The Supreme Court Wants to End the Separation of Church and StateMany legal scholars in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s radical decision to reverse Roe v. Wade have focused on the dangerous implications of the court’s centuries-old worldview on protections for things such as same-sex marriage and contraception. This concern is real, but there is another issue with equally grave constitutional consequences, one that portends the emergence of a foundational alteration of American government itself. Considered alongside two First Amendment rulings last term, the Dobbs decision marks a serious step in an emerging legal campaign by religious conservatives on the Supreme Court to undermine the bedrock concept of separation of church and state and to promote Christianity as an intrinsic component of democratic government. The energy behind this idea was apparent in Justice Samuel Alito’s speech last month for Notre Dame Law School’s Religious Liberty Initiative…
