Some people will be elated, others…not so much!

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The new challenge stems from the $1.5 trillion tax cut passed by Congress in 2017, which repealed the health care law’s tax on people who refuse to buy insurance.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.

Save conservative media!

There’s a whole heck of a lot to unpack regarding the death of Minnesota man George Floyd and former police officer Derek Chauvin. Let’s just get right to the latest news. From Daily Wire: On Friday, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner issued a report saying a preliminary autopsy showed no evidence that George Floyd died of strangulation and traumatic asphyxia. Floyd’s arrest was captured on video and went viral earlier this week. During the incident, at least one officer is seen kneeling on the 46-year-old’s neck while Floyd repeatedly tells him he can’t breath. Floyd died soon following the arrest.

Violent rioters reportedly stormed a police precinct in New York City on Friday and lit law enforcement vehicles on fire.

Democrat Chicago Mayor Has ‘Two Words’ for Trump, ‘It Begins With F & It Ends With U’

Not cool, Lori.

When Republicans in office disagreed with Barack Obama, at least the vast majority did so in a professional manner. The same cannot be said about Democrats in the era of Trump. Enter the far-left mayor of Chicago, via Fox News: Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted President Trump and invoked an expletive Friday in response to his tweet after three days of protests in Minneapolis, Minn., when he called the protesters “THUGS” and tweeted that “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Lightfoot said, “Donald Trump’s comment last night was profoundly dangerous. And we must stand firm in solidarity and say this is totally unacceptable no matter who is the speaker.” She added, “He wants to show failures on the part of Democratic local leaders, to throw red meat to his base. His goal is to polarize, to destabilize local government and inflame racist urges. We can absolutely not let him prevail. And I will code what I really want to say to Donald Trump. It’s two words. It begins with F and it ends with U.” Here’s a screenshot of Trump’s tweets: And here’s what Twitter decided to do with those tweets: A Lightfoot tweet: https://twitter.com/chicagosmayor/status/1244762897743351808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1244762897743351808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fchicago.suntimes.com%2Fcity-hall%2F2020%2F4%2F6%2F21211314%2Fgetting-roots-done-not-essential-getting-hair-cut-mayor-lightfoot VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ah7xQHo9WOQ
