It’s a good thing the Trump administration is reshaping the federal judiciary. Had Trump not been elected in 2016, the courts would still see a far-left, liberal bent.

On Wednesday, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals voted in favor of conservatives around the nation. And they did so in the name of the United States Constitution. Big day!

Here’s what’s up…

The Fifth Circuit has upheld Judge O’Connor’s ruling that the Obamacare individual mandate is unconstitutional because it can no longer be read as a tax — but it has remanded to the district court to see if the mandate can be severed from the law.

From USA Today:

A federal appeals court in New Orleans struck down a major part of the Affordable Care Act Wednesday, a decision that could jeopardize health insurance coverage for millions of Americans and set up a potential election-year showdown at the Supreme Court.

The 2-1 ruling against the law’s mandate that people buy insurance, rendered by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, represents the latest action in a string of legal challenges that have imperiled former President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement since its enactment in 2010.

CONTINUED:

The new challenge stems from the $1.5 trillion tax cut passed by Congress in 2017, which repealed the health care law’s tax on people who refuse to buy insurance. That tax was intended to prod them into the health care marketplace rather than letting them seek emergency care while uninsured.

WATCH:

After initially supporting the Hyde Amendment, 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden has now backed away.

And it happened very, very quickly.

What’s even more odd is that he is blaming Republicans for his decision.

When asked in a rope line if he’d repeal the Hyde Amendment, the 1976 measure that prohibits federal funding for abortion except in the case of rape, incest and endangering the life of the mother, he said he would.

But then his campaign quickly backtracked, saying he misheard the question and that he still supports the measure.

He blames Republicans for his decision

While in New Hampshire, Joe was confronted by an anti-Trump woman.

He agrees with her that 45 is “illegitimate.”

WATCH:

Biden is quite the card, even after all these years.

Where he finds the marbles to tell a crowd of rallygoers that he and Barack Obama are responsible for the current thriving economy is anyone’s guess, but when you’re talking to the politically uninformed anything goes.

Check this out…

WATCH:

Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.”

Pitiful, Joe. Just pitiful.

McAfee Dead in Prison After Repeatedly Declaring He Would Not Kill Himself

Social media users were quick to remind the world of McAfee’s own words.

John McAfee is a computing legend, having pioneered the way in which systems and networks protect themselves from viruses, malware, spyware, and all the other assorted evils of this internet age. But now he lies dead, having allegedly committed suicide in a Spanish prison cell. Antivirus software tycoon John McAfee died by an apparent suicide in a Spanish jail cell Wednesday evening — hours after reports surfaced that he would be extradited to face federal charges in the US, according to local media. The eccentric tech entrepreneur was arrested in October and was awaiting extradition when he was found dead, police sources told the newspaper El Pais. The newspaper reported McAfee was pulled from his cell in Barcelona and police are investigating the circumstances around his death. Authorities aren’t shying away from calling it a suicide already. “Everything points to suicide,” the newspaper reported, citing justice department officials in the country. A second Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, also reported McAfee had died by an apparent suicide in the jail. But here is where it gets strange:  McAfee has been utterly insistent and consistent about the fact that he would never, ever take his own life, explicitly telling his followers on social media that, should he ever be found dead of suicide, he was killed. https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1316801215083225096?s=20 https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1200864283766251521?s=20 https://twitter.com/truthcrumbs/status/1407788935628079113?s=20 The investigation is ongoing at this time.

Lab Finds Zero Fish DNA After Testing Subway’s Tuna Sandwich

You can “eat fresh” at Subway, but can you eat fish?

For years we’ve told ourselves that there has to be a better way to do fast food.  Or, at the very least, a healthier way. And so new chains are constantly popping up, while the old staples adapt.  There are salads for sale as places like McDonald’s these days, which is something that kids who grew up in the 80’s might have had a hard time believing would ever occur. In the realm of healthy fast food, there is but one king:  The unbreakable Subway.  Not only did the brand survive having a pedophile as their spokesperson, but they currently operate more physical restaurants in the world than even the aforementioned burger purveyor. But an alarming new study has some wondering if, while they were “eating fresh” with a tuna sub, they were even eating fish. The New York Times published a report Sunday, which revealed that lab tests didn’t find “amplifiable tuna DNA” in Subway’s infamous tuna sandwich. NYT submitted “60 inches worth of Subway tuna sandwiches” from three separate Los Angeles locations for lab analysis in wake of the lawsuit filed earlier this year alleging the sandwich chain was serving customers “a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna.” The suit claims that independent lab tests showed the company meant to “imitate” tuna’s appearance by blending together these unknown ingredients. The study, commissioned by NYT, failed to not only identify tuna DNA, but the lab couldn’t even determine the origins of the fish in the provided sandwiches. “No amplifiable tuna DNA was present in the sample and so we obtained no amplification products from the DNA. Therefore, we cannot identify the species,” the results read. But it’s not all bad news: “There’s two conclusions. One, it’s so heavily processed that whatever we could pull out, we couldn’t make an…
