The ‘Bigly’ Indictment Updates:

Marjorie Taylor Greene calls for protests in New York after Trump indictment

The Georgia GOP congresswoman and Trump loyalist is reversing course after saying two weeks ago she and other Trump backers should not protest his indictment.

  • New York City is gearing up security again for possible protests and unrest after a Manhattan grand jury voted to indict former President Donald Trump on Thursday
  • Trump ally U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted Friday she plans to come to NYC for Trump’s expected arraignment on Tuesday; the indictment likely won’t be unsealed until then
  • The NYPD has said it is aware of no credible threats to NYC at this point; it’s unclear if any potential organized actions may intensify post-indictment, but with the pall of the Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection still looming large, law enforcement at all levels of government are preparing accordingly

Uncle Clarence’s Wife, Ginni, is Up to No Good Again:

Activist group led by Ginni Thomas received nearly $600,000 in anonymous donations

Funding for group that battled ‘cultural Marxism’ was channeled through right-wing think tank, Post investigation finds

A little-known conservative activist group led by Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, collected nearly $600,000 in anonymous donations to wage a cultural battle against the left over three years, a Washington Post investigation found.

The previously unreported donations to the fledgling group Crowdsourcers for Culture and Liberty were channeled through a right-wing think tank in Washington that agreed to serve as a funding conduit from 2019 until the start of last year, according to documents and interviews. The arrangement, known as a “fiscal sponsorship,” effectively shielded from public view details about Crowdsourcers’ activities and spending, information it would have had to disclose publicly if it operated as a separate nonprofit organization, experts said.

One of America’s Worst Judges Just Gutted a Key Part of Obamacare

Reed O’Connor—a judge even the Supreme Court usually thinks is nuts—tossed out one of the most vital parts of the Affordable Care Act on Thursday.

Federal judge says insurers no longer have to provide some preventive care services, including cancer and heart screenings, at no cost

A federal judge in Texas said Thursday that some Affordable Care Act mandates cannot be enforced nationwide, including those that require insurers to cover a wide array of preventive care services at no cost to the patient, including some cancer, heart and STD screenings, and tobacco programs.

In the new ruling, US District Judge Reed O’Connor struck down the recommendations that have been issued by the US Preventive Services Task Force, which is tasked with determining some of the preventive care treatments that Obamacare requires to be covered.
