Brett Kavanaugh ‘s 2018 background check is now under heavy scrutiny

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh is back in the news again. Under a new FBI and a new administration, U.S officials are taking a second hard look at the background check that was done that year. That check appears to have been flawed from the start with the FBI now admitting that they received more than 4,500 tips about him. The New York Times reports that at least two major officials now say that the 5 day investigation was in fact a total sham. Any information that had been gathered on Kavanaugh was actually turned over to the White House so the WH could decide what to do with it -- which was often lie about it.

The Supreme Court has rejected Donald Trump ‘s attempt to overthrow the election

The United StateS Supreme Court has spoken. According to their ruling, the Supreme Court in no less than a single sentence rejected the suit to do so on grounds that it had no merit to begin with.

Because Trump and his allies have repeatedly experienced so many losses, er, many are now demanding Trump go and avert the law. Supporters like Michaell Flynn and others are calling for Trump to flat out suspend the constitution — essentially declaring martial law. The idea has not sat well with Trump ‘s critics or those who know his efforts are outright afoul of literally every possible principle of American morale and life.

The Supreme Court has ruled that it is illegal to fire someone for being LGBTQ+

In a stunning blow to the Trump Administration, the Supreme Court ruled today that LGBTQ+ people cannot be discriminated against within the workplace. In a near unanimous ruling, the justices ruled that previously published rulings on the unlawfulness of sex discrimination also cover in full LGBTQ people and their right to identify how they feel. The justices in a 6-3 ruling cited that Title VII, a key part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, indeed protests people from being discriminated against in the workplace.  "An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex," Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote for the court.

The ruling came from judge Gladys Kessler, who,  lambasted tobacco companies across the spectrum for flat out deceiving the American public about the harmful consequences of their products. In the seething 1,600 page ruling, Kessler, ruled that the tobacco companies must comply with the new regulations. Those regulations regarding television ads and advertising spots began in...
