Federal Judge Nicholas Garaufis handed down a major ruling against the Trump administration on Saturday.

“A federal judge in New York City on Saturday said Chad Wolf has not been acting lawfully as the chief of Homeland Security and that, as such, his suspension of protections for a class of migrants brought to the United States illegally as children is invalid,” NBC News reports. “The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in June that the Trump administration wrongly tried to shut down protections under the Obama-era legislation known as DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. On July 28, Wolf nonetheless suspended DACA pending review.”

The Republican Party has already burst at the seams in the wake of Trump’s defeat: conservative columnist

Published

on

Almost three weeks after Election Day — with President-elect Joe Biden having won 306 electoral votes and defeating President Donald Trump by more than 6 million in the popular vote — Trump has yet to concede and continues to claim, without evidence, that the election was stolen from him through widespread voter fraud.

In recent weeks, President Donald Trump has been angrily railing against Fox News and Fox Business, urging his supporters to watch Newsmax TV or One American News instead.

It wasn't a good sign for the Fox News/Trump alliance when head honcho Rupert Murdoch predicted that former Vice President Joe Biden would win the 2020 presidential election, and Trump was furious when Fox News' decision desk called Arizona for Biden on Election Night — even when many other media outlets were still declining to do so.

Some conservatives are becoming apoplectic as the lunatic antics of the Trump legal team continue unabated

Published

The lunatic antics of the Trump legal team continued unabated over this past weekend. After his mysteriously oozing press conference last Thursday, Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani kept an uncharacteristically low profile. Jenna Ellis, his partner in the "elite strike force," took to Twitter to insult longtime Republican pollster Frank Luntz, accusing him of "micropenis syndrome," but beyond that she too stayed quiet. They left the public appearances to Sidney Powell, the member of the team best known as former national security adviser Michael Flynn's least competent attorney.
