Justices spar in latest clash of free speech and same-sex rights

Mon, Dec 5, 2022 at 1:11 pm

The Supreme Court heard the case of a Christian graphic designer who refuses to create websites for same-sex weddings. In the case, Lorie Smith argues that Colorado’s anti-discrimination law should not apply because she has a free speech right under the Constitution’s First Amendment. Smith points to her strongly held Christian beliefs that marriage is between one man and one woman.

McCarthy Calls for Mayorkas’ Resignation

Wed, Nov 23, 2022 at 1:31 pm

***MCCARTHY-MAYORKAS-

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called on Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign over his handling of the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that GOP lawmakers will consider impeachment next year if he does not step down. More on this from Congressional Correspondent Bernie Bennett.

McCarthy said at a press conference in El Paso, Texas, on Tuesday, “If Secretary Mayorkas does not resign, House Republicans will investigate, every order, every action and every failure will determine whether we can begin impeachment inquiry.”

McCarthy cited the Department of Homeland Security head’s statements to Congress that the border is under control, record border crossing numbers and his ending of the “Remain in Mexico” asylum policy instituted during the Trump administration as reasons for resignation.

McCarthy was nominated by House Republicans to serve as Speaker in the next Congress last week during a closed-door vote.

San Francisco unveils a controversial program

VERBATIM: It’s called the “Guaranteed Income for Transgender People” initiative and it will provide a monthly payment of 1200 dollars to poor people who are transgender. The application just came out and it has prompted some raised eyebrows. The document offers over 130 gender and sexual orientation options, encouraging applicants to “check all that apply.” Critics say if the city wants to make payments to low income residents, it should do so without favoring transgender people.
