    While many have began criticizing the dead former Confederate leader, in 1975 the Senate, which included freshman Democratic Delaware Sen. Joe Biden, unanimously approved the reinstatement of General Robert E. Lee’s citizenship to the U.S. ***** Lee died in 1870 without citizenship. Independent Virginia Sen. Harry F. Byrd spearheaded the push for reinstating Lee’s citizenship posthumously, and it passed through both chambers after the House, voting 407 to 10 in favor of the reinstatement on July 23, 1975.

    The White House and Republican senators sought compromise Tuesday on limiting presidents' powers to unilaterally declare national emergencies, as chances improved that President Donald Trump might avoid a long-expected rejection by Congress of his effort to divert billions more for building barriers along the Mexican border. As a Thursday showdown vote in the Senate neared, GOP Sens. Mike Lee of Utah, Thom Tillis of North Carolina and others were talking with the White House about related legislation that would curb the ability of presidents to declare future emergencies. If Trump would commit to signing a bill handcuffing future emergency declarations,...

    Romney is among a few GOP senators who have not disclosed how they will vote on a joint resolution that rejects Trump's national emergency declaration as a way to secure funding for a promised wall along the Mexico border. Trump is expected to veto the resolution if it passes. "You really can't say how you're going to vote on something until you know precisely what will come," Romney said. "But, I have studied this at some length and spoken with a number of people about it and I've made my decision, pending what the final bill looks like that comes...

    7. Ted Cruz (Texas) Cruz has made his concerns clear that Trump issuing a national emergency could be a "slippery slope" for future Democratic presidents to use such powers to declare their policy priorities an emergency. It would make sense that Cruz, an expert in constitutional law, would be uncomfortable with this move, and if it had been done by a Democratic president he'd certainly be among those protesting the loudest about executive overreach. But after a bitter start to their relationship when they were opponents in the 2016 primary, Cruz has come around to being one of Trump's allies...

    The Salt Lake Tribune ^ | 3/1/19 | Benjamin Wood
    Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, told state lawmakers Friday that he hasn’t made a decision on joining a Congressional resolution opposing President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency on the nation’s southern border. Lee objected to Trump’s use of executive authority to divert funding for the construction of a border wall. But he said he’s less concerned with that particular declaration than the underlying question of whether and when a president can sidestep Congress on government spending. “It’s probably not a good idea to give presidents that much power,” Lee said. Lee said while he supports the president’s goal of...

    (Gray News) – It was a meth overdose that claimed the life of a man whose body was found in Great Smoky Mountains National Park in September, not the black bear that was eating him. Park officials released a statement Monday saying William Lee Hill Jr. died of “accidental methamphetamine intoxication,” according to an autopsy from the Knox County Regional Forensic Center. The 30-year-old was found in the park near Cades Cove, TN, on September 9. “At the time of discovery, searchers encountered a bear feeding on Hill’s body,” the park statement said. “Without knowing the definitive cause of death,...

    Rep. Barbara Lee will be joining the House Democratic leadership team, filling a key void for the caucus after its elections earlier this week left the group without a woman of color in the top ranks. Lee is expected to fill a new position being created by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to oversee the Steering and Policy Committee, the panel that determines committee assignments for Democrats. Pelosi’s decision expands leadership of the panel from two co-chairs to three. The decision to elevate Lee comes as a group of House Democrats, disappointed by both Lee’s narrow loss in the race for...

Update: Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch, and Mike Lee were all targeted and doxxed with their information published on Wikipedia while they were speaking during the Kavanaugh hearing. A source I just spoke with explained Orrin's wife has been receiving nonstop calls and it's her birthday.

    As the families of U.S. hostages currently held in Iran have struggled for years to rally the determination to bring their loved ones home, newly released emails from the former secretary of State reveal the infuriating truth that those with connections get their case raised to the top. In 2009, Iason Athanasiadis was covering the protests of the disputed election win of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over Mir-Hossein Mousavi for the Washington Times. The Greek citizen was detained by Iranian authorities on June 17, 2009, as he tried to fly out of the country. Athanasiadis was thrown in Evin prison and released...

    When the conversation turned to the question of whether Nancy Pelosi should be the next speaker of the House, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proposed an alternative. Instead of maintaining the status quo in the House Democratic Caucus, the most talked-about Democratic congressional nominee of 2018 told a reporter, “I’d like to see new leadership, but I don’t even know what our options are. I mean, is Barbara Lee running? Call me when she does!” That was a knowing response from a savvy Democrat, who became the face of a progressive surge within the Democratic Party after her June 26 primary defeat of...

    At least three California Democrats are considering a bid to lead the Democratic caucus in the House. The surprise primary loss on Tuesday of House Democratic caucus chairman Joe Crowley of New York has triggered a wave of speculation on Capitol Hill about which Democrat will secure his high-ranking leadership position after the 2018 election. The caucus chair is the fourth highest-ranking member of Democratic leadership in the House, and is responsible for leading the party’s closed-door meetings to gauge support for legislation, establish party policy and set the legislative agenda. *** California’s 39 Democratic representatives make up 20% of...

Lee and Pelosi sent a letter to Coach Steve Kerr as the team celebrated its victory with a parade through Oakland. “In celebration of your victory, we would be delighted to welcome you publicly as a team or personally as families to the United States Capitol,” the Bay Area representatives said. “Please consider this as a blanket invitation whenever your individual schedules allow.”

    As the weed of secularization continues spreading its roots through the belly of western civilization, Christians must be active and vocal when discerning the damaging effects on our society’s sexual ethic. Confused, disoriented, and unable to draw a straight line between wrong and right – our culture’s moral compass is spinning out of control. 2017 granted us no shortage of examples to demonstrate that society is altogether ignoring scripture’s warnings about licentious sexual behavior. Undeniably, we are drunk and lost at sea in a ship named Moral Relativism. Moral relativism, collateral damage from secularization and postmodernism, looks past Christianity’s objectivism...
