Republican Senators push constitutional amendment to stop court-packing

Republican senators are pushing forward a constitutional amendment that mandates the Supreme Court only has nine justices, The Hill is reporting.

Sens. Ted Cruz (TX), Thom Tillis (NC), Martha McSally (AZ), Roger Wicker (MS), Kelly Loeffler (GA), and Cindy Hydesmith (MS) all signed onto the amendment.

The move comes as former Vice President and 2020 Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden refuses to answer whether he would “pack the court,” meaning add more than the traditional nine justices.

With the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and President Donald Trump’s subsequent nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, the question remains whether Biden would add to the court or accept the expected confirmation of Judge Barrett.

BLM co-founder used funds to pay sister, mother, brother and child’s father

Released tax filings show just how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent the millions of dollars raised from “White guilt.” She paid roughly $970,000 to the company of her child’s father to help “produce live events” and other “creative services.”

Over $840,000 was paid to her brother, Paul Cullors, for security services. Daily Mail wrote that “leaders have attempted to justify” the expenses to her brother by saying the “foundation’s protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations.”

It was recently disclosed that she bought a $6 million mansion in L.A. for the organization, and denied she took money from BLM for personal matters, although shortly after it was unearthed that she had used the mansion for her own parties.

Cullors also reportedly “reimbursed BLM $73,523 for a charter flight for foundation-related travel, which the organization says she took in 2021 out of concern for COVID-19 and security threats.”

Cullors resigned last year from the organization due to criticism of her finances, such as purchasing multiple homes for herself that cost millions of dollars combined. She also admitted the charity was paying for “employment” of her sister, mother, and brother.

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation Inc revealed from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, it ended the fiscal year with nearly $42 million in net assets. “The foundation invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million it received as donations amid racial justice protests in 2020” adds Daily Mail.
