NEW Judicial Watch Hunter Biden Lawsuit!
Top Headlines of the Week
Judicial Watch announced recently that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice for all records in the possession of FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst Brian Auten regarding an August 6, 2020, briefing provided to members of the U.S. Senate. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) raised concerns that the briefing was intended to undermine the senators’ investigation of Hunter Biden.
As if it weren’t egregious enough that a record 2.5 million illegal immigrants crossed into the U.S. in fiscal year 2022, the Biden administration released hundreds of thousands of them in the country with taxpayer-funded smartphones that were supposed to track them but have failed miserably to do so. It is part of a controversial Alternatives to Detention program (ATD) and it costs the government a startling $361,218 per day, according to year-end figures (the fiscal year ended in September) released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The new records reveal that the agency issued migrants 255,602 smartphones, 40,970 global positioning system (GPS) devices and 19,902 voice ID applications before releasing them.
“The Biden administration is in cover-up mode on its abusive and unprecedented raid of former President Trump’s home,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The National Archives pretends to be concerned to public access to public information while unlawfully ignoring FOIA law and using a myriad of excuses to hide records about its manufactured dispute over the Trump records.”
A public university is getting hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Biden administration’s fraud infested COVID relief fund to study how traditional grading in college perpetuates systemic inequalities toward nontraditional and rural students. “Common classroom practices, such as grading and the use of grades to assess knowledge and performance, may have unintended consequences on students who invariably derive an awareness of their own academic abilities from the results of those grading structures,” according to the National Science Foundation (NSF), which is doling out the money.

A conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, is suing the Justice Department for records related to possible FBI obstruction in the Hunter Biden investigation.
Judicial Watch filed the suit in response to the agency’s failure to comply with a Freedom of Information Act request submitted in August. The suit also argues the agency violated the FOIA request and that the watchdog group has a legal right to view those documents.
It’s no secret that the Biden administration’s efforts surrounding the COVID vaccine were hit-and-miss. After promising that he wouldn’t mandate vaccination, the Biden administration mandated COVID vaccines for federal employees and many companies nationwide…until the Supreme Court ruled that a large portion of his forced-vaccination policies was unconstitutional.
After its push to oust L.A. County District Attorney George Gascon failed because nearly 200,000 petition signatures were invalidated, the campaign to recall Gascon announced it is filing for injunctive relief after an initial review showed 39 percent of the signatures invalidated by the L.A. County registrar were likely wrongfully rejected.
