Encouraging illegals to remain in U.S. is crime, Supreme Court rules

(DAILY CALLER) The Supreme Court unanimously upheld a federal statute that forbids encouraging illegal aliens to remain in the U.S. unlawfully in a decision Thursday.

The Supreme Court justices voided an earlier decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which had ruled that a federal anti-harboring statute was unconstitutional on the grounds that it violated the First Amendment by restricting free speech. The ruling by the nation’s highest court Thursday upholds the law.

Coronavirus will bankrupt more people than it kills — and that's the real global emergency

Coronavirus’s economic danger is exponentially greater than its health risks to the public. If the virus does directly affect your life, it is most likely to be through stopping you going to work, forcing your employer to make you redundant, or bankrupting your business.

The trillions of dollars wiped from financial markets this week will be just the beginning, if our governments do not step in. And if President Trump continues to stumble in his handling of the situation, it may well affect his chances of re-election. Joe Biden in particular has identified Covid-19 as a weakness for Trump, promising “steady, reassuring” leadership during America’s hour of need.

Adam Schiff lied about the Trump investigation — and the media let him

Last week, Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell forced Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff’s hand. If the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee didn’t release the transcripts of 53 interviews from the committee’s Russia collusion investigations, then he’d do it himself. The transcripts, many of them from nearly three years ago, were declassified and ready for public viewing since June.

As the grand impresario of collusion, Schiff has filled print and broadcast media since January 2017 claiming that he has seen “more than circumstantial evidence” of a Trump-Putin conspiracy. Obviously there was none in the transcripts, or he’d have pulled back the curtain years ago. But Schiff didn’t want to hand control of the narrative to one of Trump’s most effective deputies, so on Thursday they finally went live.

Michael Flynn could recoup 'millions' with civil lawsuit, DC attorney says

An appellate attorney in Washington, D.C., said retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn has a strong case to recoup his legal costs from the federal government after the case, which has now been dropped by the Justice Department, left him in financial ruin.

Flynn, who served as President Trump’s first national security adviser for less than a month, pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to the FBI about his conversations with a Russian diplomat before Trump entered the White House. But after firing his lawyers from Covington & Burlington, Flynn hired a new team led by former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell who fought the charges against Flynn, declared his innocence in January, and claimed he was set up by the FBI.

Pa. Gov. Wolf Urges SCOTUS Not to Take Up Fight Over COVID Orders Closing Businesses

Wolf's filing comes days after U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito requested that the governor respond to the business owners' petition, which had been filed to the high court April 27—two weeks after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied the initial challenge in state court.

Gov. Tom Wolf has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to reject a petition from a group of  Pennsylvania business owners who are challenging his order from March that closed nearly all nonessential businesses in the state.

On Monday, Wolf submitted a 43-page brief to the justices defending his authority to impose the sweeping orders that has shuttered nearly all businesses in the Keystone State in an effort to help slow the spread of the highly contagious coronavirus. The business owners, led by a political candidate from Allegheny County named Danny DeVito, are asking the justices to block Wolf from enforcing the order.

California’s Ammo Background Checks Misfire

‘Criminals, tyrants, and terrorists don’t do background checks,’ said the judge who blocked the law.

California’s attempts to discourage gun ownership hit a bump Thursday. U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez granted a preliminary injunction that stopped the state from enforcing its background checks on ammunition purchases. The initiative, which was spearheaded by Gavin Newsom when he was the lieutenant governor, passed in 2016 with 63 percent of the vote.

DNC: We rigged primaries. So what?

WASHINGTON – The Democratic National Committee is currently defending the tactics it used last year to rig the presidential primary against Sen. Bernie Sanders in a class-action lawsuit, brazenly telling voters in a court of law that the party is not obligated to run a fair and impartial primary election.

Outraged by how the DNC unfairly boosted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's candidacy and cleared the way for her primary victory, supporters of Sanders and Democratic donors sued the DNC in June 2016 alleging it defrauded its constituents.

China Refuses to Allow WHO Reps to Investigate Coronavirus Origins

China has refused requests by the World Health Organization to take part in an investigation into the origins of the coronavirus.

“We know that some national investigation is happening but at this stage we have not been invited to join,” Dr. Gauden Galea, WHO representative in China, told Sky News. “WHO is making requests of the health commission and of the authorities.”

The WHO and the U.S. intelligence community have concluded that the coronavirus is naturally-occurring and was not genetically engineered. However, U.S. officials suspect that the pathogen may have been accidentally from a lab, possibly the Wuhan Institute of Virology or the Wuhan Center for Disease Control.
