Michelle Malkin is increasingly alienated from the conservative movement due to her ardent support for a Holocaust denier. That didn’t stop Ginni Thomas from giving her an Impact Award today for her “contributions to preserving America’s liberties.”

Regarding Pam’s comment: It was not insulting, it was not crude, it was not problematic in any way, and those who insist otherwise are obviously acting in extreme bad faith. This “controversy” is a pathetic farce.

@ElectProject  What do you make of the fact that the individuals allegedly identified themselves as non-citizens to the BMV *after* "voter activity "?

CBP agents have a history of murdering people, including children, then lying about it in court. They aren't punished for their actions; if anything, they're promoted.

Ocala's lone black councilman was about to be sworn in when the city attorney blocked him, citing a 33-year-old drug conviction. Florida's constitution bars ex-felons from holding public office without approval from the clemency board.

@BillyCorriher  @Sam_RubinsteinI  think SCOTUS will rule that they can be severed. The Third Circuit's severance analysis was weird, especially since the panel took pains to say "we really don't want to do this but we have to! "

This is huge: A bombshell from the Hofeller files seems to prove that North Carolina Republicans LIED about a racial gerrymander *in federal court* to prevent a special election that threatened their supermajority. @Slate 

ICE arrested a dreamer, revoked his DACA status, placed him in detention, and attempted to deport him, claiming he was a gang member. A federal judge just ruled that ICE was lying—brazenly, intentionally, repeatedly, and illegally.

Alabama killed a Muslim man tonight who wanted his imam by his side when he died. The state offered a Christian chaplain or nothing. It was one of the most clear-cut cases of religious discrimination in recent memory. And SCOTUS’ conservatives didn’t care. So he died alone.

Under the new Georgia law, a woman who miscarries could be liable for second-degree murder. If prosecutors can prove that she is somehow responsible, she can be imprisoned for 30 years. https:

The Trump administration is refusing the recognize the citizenship of Hispanics born in Texas. This is simply astonishing (and entirely unconstitutional).

Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, shared images of black people who had allegedly left the Democratic Party. They were actually models in royalty-free stock photos.

A woman who travels out of Georgia to obtain a legal abortion elsewhere could still be prosecuted under the new law, and imprisoned for up to ten years. https:

Oof. This is terrible news. SCOTUS rules 5–4 that ICE may arrest and detain an unauthorized immigrant *indefinitely* once he has been taken into criminal custody. Doesn't matter if he was released from custody months or even years ago.
