Biden’s Marijuana Power Grab

With student loan cancellation and, now, pardons for federal criminal convictions for simple possession of marijuana, President Biden has suddenly upped the ante in the midterm elections. With his novel commandeering of the constitutional pardon power and his political repudiation of the scientific basis under federal law for classifying drugs, he has dramatically augmented presidential power. What is more, Biden’s pardon, an unprecedented and unilateral executive decree, is a scaled-up version of what has happened across the country as local prosecutors (executive branch officials themselves) have decided on their own which drug laws to enforce.

Biden is taking a constitutional power designed for review of individual criminal cases into new territory. Under Article I, Sect. 2 of the Constitution, the president has “the Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Case of Impeachment.” A reprieve is a reduction in sentence; it does not affect the underlying conviction. A pardon, as described by Hamilton in Federalist 74, is an act of “mercy of the government” and “mitigation of the rigor of the law” as an occasional “exception” to the normal severity. The power is exclusive to the president and cannot be overturned by any body of government, legislative, executive, or judicial. Every president of recent years has used the power to pardon individuals, often with controversy; President Ford’s pardon of Richard Nixon is the prime example.

Franklin Graham warns socialist left will ‘close the Church down’: ‘The storm is coming’

Prominent evangelical leader Franklin Graham says that the Democratic Party is “opposed to faith” and warns that the left will “close the Church down in many places” should the United States fall into the embrace of socialism. 

Graham, the president of Samaritan’s Purse and the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, sat down with CBN News correspondent David Brody last Friday to discuss the Democratic and Republican conventions that took place over the past two weeks.

He also discussed his upcoming Washington Prayer March that will take place at the end of September in Washington, D.C.

“The Democrats, if anything, they are opposed to faith,” Graham asserted after being asked to compare and contrast the major parties’ positions on faith.

Watch the Video

WASHINGTON — Liberty University on Monday announced it has opened an independent investigation into “all facets” of the tenure of Jerry Falwell Jr., the evangelical school’s disgraced former president who resigned last week amid an alleged sex scandal.

The school hired a leading outside forensics firm, according to a statement issued by the Liberty’s executive committee on behalf of the board of trustees, that will investigate all aspects of Falwell’s 13-year run leading the school including “financial, real estate and legal matters.” The school did not provide further details of the scope. 

Liberty, based in Lynchburg, Virginia, is “committed to learning the consequences that have flowed from a lack of spiritual stewardship by our former president,” the statement said.

Trump Brings Hope of Peace and Security For Israel Where Obama Couldn’t

Since its founding in 1948, only five U.S. presidents have visited Israel. The first was Richard Nixon in 1974 and Donald Trump will be the sixth. The infrequency of these events alone guarantees that the Trump trip will garner high publicity and will be enthusiastically received by Israelis.

The image of an American president at the Western Wall — directly rebuking UNESCO’s rejection of a Jewish tie to the site — and his message of unequivocal commitment to Israel’s security will also be deeply appreciated. Beyond optics and messaging, though, fateful issues will also be addressed during the President Trump’s stay.

One of these is the question of reanimating peace talks with the Palestinians. President Barack Obama tried for eight years, unsuccessfully, to bring the Palestinians back to the negotiating table. Israel’s position was and remains: we want direct talks now with no preconditions. In addition, Israel looks forward to the support and participation of our Arab neighbours, Jordan and Egypt, in the peace process as well as Sunni states in the Gulf.

Jared Kushner reveals he has ‘prioritized’ exercise after leaving the White House because he thinks he could become IMMORTAL – and calls Chrissy Teigen a ‘nasty troll’ for attacking Ivanka

  • Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law and former White House advisor, said that it’s ‘probable’ that his generation could be the first to live forever
  • Kushner made the comments during an interview with former Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell
  • When asked about how he fills his days since leaving the White House, Kushner said that he ‘prioritizes’ exercise
  • Trump and Kushner are at odds about the benefits of exercise with the 45th president considering ‘exercise misguided’

Former senior White House advisor Jared Kushner said in an interview with Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell that he’s optimistic about his chances of living forever.

Kushner, 41, spoke to Grenell on the YouTube channel LiveSigning on Thursday while promoting his book his widely panned book: ‘Breaking History: A White House Memoir.’ 

The New York Times review compared the book to ‘watching a cat lick a dog’s eye goo.’

When asked about how he fills his days since his father-in-law lost his reelection campaign in 2020, Kushner said that he spends most of his time with his wife Ivanka and their three children. 

However, he added: ‘From the last year, the one thing I’ve tried to put a priority on since I left the White House was, you know, getting some exercise in.’

Kushner continued: ‘I think that there is a good probability that my generation is, hopefully with the advances in science, either the first generation to live forever, or the last generation that’s going to die.’
