DALLAS ( CBSDFW.COM ) – While stimulus checks continue to arrive in the mail, many Americans will be receiving an extra payment. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has started sending out catch-up payments, otherwise known as “plus-up” payments, to those whose third payment was less than they are eligible for. These plus-up payments do not apply to the first two rounds of stimulus. The IRS used the latest tax return information on file to determine the payment amount for the third round of stimulus checks. For many that was still their 2019 tax return. However, especially with the pandemic shutdowns and record unemployment, many people had a much lower income in 2020. Others welcomed a new member to the family. READ MORE: Stimulus Check Latest: Is A Fourth Relief Payment Coming?

The Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol in January created a trove of self-incriminating evidence, thoroughly documenting their actions and words in videos and social media posts. Now some of the camera-toting people in the crowd are claiming they were only there to record history as journalists, not to join a deadly insurrection. It’s unlikely that any of the self-proclaimed journalists can mount a viable defense on the First Amendment’s free speech grounds, experts say. They face long odds if video captured them acting more like rioters than impartial observers. But as the internet has broadened and blurred the definition of a journalist, some appear intent on trying. At least eight defendants charged in the Jan. 6 riot have identified themselves as a journalist or a documentary filmmaker, including three people arrested this month, according to an Associated Press review of court records in nearly 400 federal cases. The insurrection led to the deaths of five people, … [Read more...] about Some Jan. 6 defendants try to use journalism as U.S. Capitol riot defense
The Supreme Court has just created an aristocracy of the religious, who now can plausibly demand the right to defy almost any law. The Court has sometimes been willing to accommodate conscientious objectors, but its earlier decisions were nothing like what it has now done. By the Court’s logic, human sacrifice now presents a hard case, with a colorable argument for its protection. Tandon v. Newsom was a 5-4 decision against California's COVID-19 order limiting more than three households from gathering in homes. The Court declared that laws can’t be applied to religious objectors so long as the state “treats some comparable secular activities more favorably.” Some regard this as a de facto return to the old rule, in effect from 1963 to 1990, that religious conscientious objectors have a right to accommodation where that’s reasonably possible. What the Court has announced, however, is far more extravagant: a right to nullify even the most urgent laws. The Court declares … [Read more...] about The Supreme Court creates a new religious aristocracy
