The Evening Wrap: A Key Supreme Court Decision and Jake Tapper Gets Something Right

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.”

[End]

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.

Today’s news moves at a faster pace than ever. Whatfinger is my go-to source for keeping up with all the latest events in real time.

    It’s Fraudchi Dave, Fraudchi! He deserves the moniker. He deserves no respect. He hasn’t earned it in over 40 years as government parasite.

    I just caught a brief TN TV news blurb out of Nashville and they put on a report from a whole bunch of area doctors and other ‘experts’ who say it would be insanity to open schools (our’s open in mid-August here) until the cases of infections drop to 10 in 100,000. They also said that if 95% followed the mask mandate, this scamdemic would be over in 4-6 weeks. Sigh…

    Based on that “science”, Mayor Stooper of Nashville has begun ordering $50 fines for non mask wearers in public. Gov. Lee, where are you? You gutless wonder. Why can’t you be like Gov Kemp of GA?

    PS: The only reason I caught the news after “Jeopardy” is because they teased an update from Alex Trebeck on his cancer prognosis – he is fatigued, but otherwise doing fine. Otherwise, I never watch the Nashville news on TV. Oh, by the way it’s going to be in the nineties here for then next week. Nineties in Mid-TN in mid July, shocking! Glad I didn’t miss that info.

    Oh, and about the million or so felons who won’t be officially allowed to vote in Florida; all they have to do is show up in Miami-Dade, Broward or Palm Beach Counties on Nov 3, and they’ll get their vote counted.

    Gov. DeSantis, please make sure that doesn’t happen; only you can stop this.

      That’s why the bloody GOP needs to get off their ass and put observsers in every polling place they can. The demoncrats will. They ask for donations and do nothing but push more of the same at us. You would think they would have figured it out by now that we voted for Trump because we wanted a non GOP blessed candidate that offered us something besides more of
      the same. Somebody who actually ran a business, signed a paycheck, had to see things through to the end instead of kicking the damn can down the road and understood the average citizen.
      I knew he had said and done things in the past that were outrageous. I didn’t care, I was tired of getting promises and no action. All who voted for him felt the same. And what has he done?
      His best to keep his promises. Yes, he’d had some errors, but hey, he ain’t a damn life long
      elected “leader”. Had the feckles, rino house doen their job and backed him up instead of being
      blody viche republicans, we might not have lost the house to begin with.

      That’s why I will vote for him again, the other option will lead to our complete subjugation We are already living in the precursor period now. It may be too late already. We may have a civil war whether we want it or not and sooner than we think.

    Longtime lurker, first time poster.
    I have really come to enjoy this site. DB, love your writing style. Witty guy. This Covid panic, I am glad I live in Georgia. Brian Kemp I believe is a better Governor than we have had in some time. It will be interesting to see what lawsuits Atlanta and some other towns/cities will bring against the Governor with his statewide no mask statute.

    It is interesting to see Jake Tapper step out of line and defend anything from the Whitehouse. I am not sure where that is coming from. It may be that he just likes Kayleigh,

      Welcome aboard Bob,

      Look forward to your insights and views.

      Regarding Tapper, even a busted clock is right twice a day and a blind squirrel occasionally finds an acorn.

      1. Bob - July 17, 2020

        Very true Gregg, but I don’t believe he is right like a busted clock. He actually went out of his way to “correct”. I don’t believe he is allowed to do that, I think he likes Kayleigh. Heck, I don’t blame him if he does. She is a smart woman.
