Good John Roberts showed up for court today. – The Supreme Court issued a decision today that could have huge implications for the November elections. On a 6-3 vote, the Court refused to reconsider a lower court ruling that prevents Florida from restoring the voting rights of convicted felons who have not satisfied all the terms of their convictions, including fines and other financial penalties. Liberal Stephen Breyer voted along with the very unreliable “conservative” majority.
Plaintiffs had sued the state for denying the vote to felons who had served their time but failed to pay up. Under Florida law passed in 2018, felons are able to regain their voting rights when they have fulfilled all terms of their convictions.
This decision by the high court means that roughly 1 million Florida felons who have failed to satisfy their financial obligations could be unable to vote in November. Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media are obviously hardest hit by today’s decision.
This is a big deal.
That time when even Jake Tapper admitted kids need to go back to school this fall… – Fake Jake Tapper chided Trump critics on Twitter today to “be fair” after his colleagues in the corrupt corporate news media intentionally misquoted Kayleigh McEnany’s remarks related to COVID-19, science and returning to school at today’s White House press briefing. Tapper also corrected Sanjay Gupta when the fake doctor attempted to perpetrate the same falsehoods on Tapper’s CNN program this afternoon.
From a story at Mediaite:
Jake Tapper corrected Dr. Sanjay Gupta over his critique of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s “science should not stand in the way” comment on his CNN show Thursday afternoon.
“The science should not stay in the way of this,” McEnany said in a press briefing Thursday in reference to school openings, before adding, “The science is on our side here. We encourage for localities in states to just simply follow the science. Open our schools.”
Following outrage around the comments, Tapper encouraged people to read McEnany’s full quote, writing in a tweet, “She’s arguing that the science is on the side of those who want to open them, she cites a JAMA study. I’m not taking a position on the matter but be fair.”
After playing a clip of McEnany’s statement, Tapper asked Gupta, “Where is the science on this? Because I know some of the studies, one of the JAMA studies that she referred to, what’s your reaction as a physician and parent of three children?”
“Well, first of all, I don’t think you ever want to say the science should not stand in the way of this,” Gupta responded. “I don’t know exactly what she was referring to by that or if she was just misspeaking. That sounded like an alternate facts sort of moment there.”
“If I could just say, Sanjay,” Tapper interrupted. “I think she was trying to say the science shouldn’t stand in the way because the science is on our side. I don’t know that all of the science is on their side. Certainly, this White House, their respect for science knows bounds, let’s put it that way. But I think that’s what she was getting at.”
Let’s be clear: The science is 100% on the side of reopening and getting our nation’s kids back to school this fall. There is ZERO, ZIP, NADA “science” that indicates otherwise. With pretty much every other country on earth dealing with reality and real science and reopening their schools, the only reason why any schools at any level in our country will refuse to open in the fall is pure, rank, smelly partisan politics. Dr. Anthony Fauci and others who continue to purvey panic porn and using our children as political footballs should be condemned and shunned by civilized society.
Even Jake Tapper understands the truth here. It is rather amazing his overlords at CNN haven’t shut him up about it yet.
That is all.
