A federal appeals court ruled in favor of the White House by not compelling former White House attorney Don McGahn to testify before Congress. It was a huge win for the President who has been blocking his former confidant from testifying in the House’s Russian collusion investigation.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit overturned a lower court ruling that McGahn could not be protected by the White House from a subpoena issued by the House Judiciary Committee and its Chair, Jerry Nadler. But there’s a caveat that is appropriate as the court did not agree with DoJ attorney’s and the White House’s contention that McGahn and other officials enjoy “absolute immunity” from Congressional subpoenas. Instead, the court ruled based on the DoJ’s argument that the judiciary branch should not get involved in these sorts of issues between the other two branches.
THIS is why Democrats were so afraid of using the judicial system to pursue answers in their sham impeachment inquisition: because they knew they stood a good chance of LOSING their case.

It’s a win in both regards for America. It’s ludicrous to believe a Congressional investigation of any sort can be derailed because the White House is not obligated to cooperate under any circumstances due to “absolute immunity.” This would weaken Capitol Hill’s ability to perform their oversight responsibilities. But it’s equally true that the judicial branch must not become the referee between the other two branches.
Historically, Congressional subpoenas have been subject to negotiation between Capitol Hill and the White House. This is as it should be. Members of Congress should have to work through their investigations instead of running to the court every time they want to talk to a White House official. Conversely, the White House should not enjoy this degree of immunity which would essentially make it to where Congress can never ask a question.
Don’t get caught unprepared as things go south. Order a case of five life-saving antibiotics prescribed directly to you by board certified physicians. Use promo code “RUCKER10” for $10 off. Having an emergency supply of antibiotics is crucial before the crap hits the fan.
Congress and the White House each have leverage over the other. That’s how the Constitution was written. It’s a process that allows them to be checks and balances against each other. The judiciary is supposed to be the weakest of the three branches, but in recent decades judicial supremacy has become a blight that prevents both forward progress as well as thoughtful negotiation between the other two branches. The judiciary is intended to rule on Constitutionality, not political expediency one way or the other.
The Supreme Court is unlikely to overturn the decision, leaving Don McGahn in the clear. Perhaps now we can move on from the Russia debacle and focus on fixing the issues that are plaguing this nation.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
