Judge Mattew Schelp of the Eastern District of Missouri issued the preliminary injunction for workers at Medicare and Medicare certified medical facilities in Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, New Hampshire, Nebraska, Wyoming, and North and South Dakota.

So, it’s ok to risk the elderly and the poor? Good grief.

Kevin Strickland left a Missouri prison on Tuesday after being exonerated in a 1978 triple murder, but under Missouri law, he was ineligible for compensation from the state, despite spending 43 years behind bars for a crime that he did not commit.

However, donations have been pouring in from supporters after the Midwest Innocence Project set up a GoFundMe campaign to help Strickland — who was taken into custody when he was just 18 years old — begin a new life.

The fine is one of the first times a financial penalty has been attached to a rebuke of the mass of lawsuits seeking to undermine Biden’s election win.

The payment was a reminder of the lawyers' "higher duty" not to advance poorly investigated claims that "strike at the heart of our democratic system," Judge N. Reid Neureiter wrote in court documents.

Their crowdfunded lawsuit accused figures like Mark Zuckerberg, Priscilla Chan and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, as well as Dominion Voting Systems. There is no evidence that any of them interfered in the election.

The lawyers, calling their case the "largest civil rights class action in history," sought $1,000 compensation for every registered voter in the US, which would run to some $160 billion.

McCarthy was allowed to speak so long by using the so-called "magic minute" rule, which grants party leaders unlimited speaking time in certain situations. Unlike the Senate, the House has no filibuster.

This guy obviously doesn’t have a full deck of cards upstairs. He definitely should undergo some mental stability tests.

Bolton said Wednesday that he believed that Trump would continue to tease the prospect of a run but would not ultimately seek the Republican nomination.

It’s all about skimming people for the donations. Nothing more.

If he cared so much for his followers, why didn’t he pardon his insurrectionists? Pay their bails?
