Op-ed:
Picked For All The Wrong Reasons

...In fact, I truly believe that Ketanji Brown Jackson is indeed an activist judge whose decisions as a Supreme Court justice will more times than not be in lock-step with those of the Democrat-Socialist far left who want to keep our borders open in an effort to garner the votes needed to help keep them in power while extending their control over the masses intact.

BBC News

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky has said Russia has launched an assault to seize the eastern Donbas region.

Ukraine's top security official, Oleksiy Danilov, said that Russia tried to break through Ukrainian front lines in the region.

The offensive has been long-expected after Russia failed to seize Kyiv.

On Monday afternoon a United States District Judge in Florida struck down the Biden administration's ongoing mask mandate for travel. 

Within hours, TSA released a statement saying the mandate was being paused. 

"Due to today’s court ruling, effective immediately, TSA will no longer enforce its Security Directives and Emergency Amendment requiring mask use on public transportation and transportation hubs. TSA will also rescind the new Security Directives that were scheduled to take effect tomorrow. CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings at this time," the agency said. 

This prompted airlines and Amtrak to follow suit. Read more and see tweets here.
