Why the Senate is delaying its vote on same-sex marriage and what that means going forward

Political divides in America are larger than ever before and as a result, the major vote over codifying same-sex marriage has been delayed until after the election. Across party lines, negotiators maintain that more time is needed to hash out the bill and in typical fashion that of 'religious liberty concerns 'and religious objections.' But the truth is that Republicans hold the power here because Democrats currently need at least 10 GOP signatures to pass the legislation which they do not have. The original vote was due to take place within days (particularly before the Senate 's October break) but it was delayed ultimately for political and religious reasons on behalf of the Republican party. “Leader Schumer is extremely disappointed that there aren’t 10 Republicans in the Senate...

GOP: Teen rape victims should have the babies because the experience ‘could be healing’

A wild declaration by a GOP nominee for Governor out in Michigan. In a segment on Fox, Tudor Dixon proclaimed that teenage rape victims should be forced to have the child in question because 'it heals them' despite the pregnancy having happened for criminal reasons. “I’ve talked to those people who were the child of a rape victim, and the bond that those two people made, and the fact that out of that tragedy there was healing through that baby — it’s something that we don’t think about,” she said.

Rand Paul is now calling for the repeal of the Espionage Act because it likely will land Trump in prison

Senator Rand Paul is joining the most right-wing of thoughts and calling for the repeal of the Espionage Act in which Donald Trump is being investigated for after he is understood to have stolen classified information from the White House. In a series of tweets, Paul openly called for repealing the WWI era law that makes it illegal to steal or somehow become in private possession of major classified information that could otherwise hurt America's national security. "The espionage act was abused from the beginning to jail dissenters of WWI," tweeted the GOP Kentucky senator. "It is long past time to repeal this egregious affront to the 1st Amendment." It's worth noting that Donald Trump isn't accused of being spy, but rather intentionally mishandling classified information that sh...

You have another reason to dislike Krysten Sinema (again)

AZ Senator Krysten Sinema is probably one of the most disliked women in America right now. A new report doesn't help that fact considering it confirmed what many had suspected about Sinema 's financial fundraising while in government. Sinema received more than $1m in funding from private fund managers and then turned around and helped kill a tax that would've taxed those managers appropriately. That tax if you're wondering is known as the carried interest tax. It allows these managers to be taxed at a much different rate than an ordinary person. Essentially the tax is designed in a way that has a much lower tax rate than ordinary taxes even if revenues are soaring. AP review of her finances made this among several other discoveries.

This is why Donald Trump is up shit ‘s creek without a paddle (as it seems right now anyway)

Donald Trump 's lawyers appear to be more of a harm rather than good at this point. According to multiple reports published over the weekend, Trump 's lawyers are in part the reason why federal authorities raided his home. The New York Times along with multiple others reports that Trump 's lawyers signed a document back in June claiming that all classified documents were returned. They were not. The Times also notes that sources confirmed to the newspaper that after his lawyers made the false claim people were seen moving boxes in and around the residence of Mar-a-Lago. The development of course means that at some point Trump and his team were intentionally deceitful to the government. Back in June a Department head by the name of Jay Bratt, the Department 's top national securi...

A third political party in America is launching (again) but nobody knows if it will succeed but probably will divide

Former politician Andrew Yang (think: the UBI guy) is back in the headlines amid reports that he and a group of former lawmakers are forming a third major party in the United States. But it is anyone's guess if the party will actually take flight in the United States because of how divided the country currently is behind the scenes. The new party will be called "Forward" and will be co-chaired by Andrew Yang and Christine Whitman the former Governor of New Jersey. It is unclear though if the political party will actually gain traction considering this is an election year in the United States. Yang is perhaps best known for his own previous Presidential aspirations and the fact that he had proposed the idea of Universal Basic Income. While many support the idea of UBI, many just...

Nancy Pelosi is at the center of some pretty serious drama amid claims China may shoot down her plane if she goes to Taiwan

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi probably wishes that whoever works in her office would stop leaking travel plans to the media. This week it emerged that Pelosi 's previously scheduled April trip to Taiwan is now upcoming in August after she rescheduled over COVID-19 earlier this year. The trip now, however, has caught the attention of senior Chinese government officials who apparently are eyeing everything from conflict to literally shutting down Taiwan 's airspace in a no-fly zone. That would essentially mean if Pelosi 's plane attempts to cross that no-fly zone the Chinese would likely attempt to shoot it down. Pelosi's office has themselves neither confirmed nor denied reports of the trip due to security protocols in place. American wishes to maintain its strategy of strategic amb...

A judge has blocked Texas ‘s trigger law in response to the overturning of Roe vs Wade

Texas one of many places that have what are known as "trigger laws" might have to temporarily dash its hopes to outlaw abortion in its state. According to reports out Wednesday morning, a Texas judge has temporarily blocked the state's trigger law from going into effect which it was due to do so in just two month's time. This comes after Attorney General Ken Paxton attempted to celebrate the overturning of Roe vs Wade as a national holiday. Part of the challenge came from the ACLU which argued in court that such bans before 1973 or those that were written around that time would be unenforceable simply because modern life has changed so much compared to that time It would be impossible. Texas, however, maintains that it hopes to stand by a 1925 law that it actually had on the book...

If America had any balls it would arrest Ginni Thomas by sunrise

But unfortunately for most Americans America lacks the balls to actually arrest Ginni Thomas and try Clarence Thomas for high crimes and remove him from the Supreme Court. A series of emails obtained by the Washington Post revealed that Thomas sent messages to dozens of Arizona politicians seeking to convince them to illegally choose their own electors. Dated 9 November 2020, Thomas sent the e-mail advising Arizona's legislature that they had the power to simply ignore all else and choose their own electors. "As state lawmakers, you have the Constitutional power and authority to protect the integrity of our elections — and we need you to exercise that power now!” wrote Thomas. “Never before in our nation's history have our elections been so threatened by fraud and unconstitutio...
