BREATHE IN, BREATHE OUT… BIDEN CAUGHT CARRYING NOTE CARDS WITH STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO BE A HUMAN… We Almost Can’t Believe These Biden Notes For A White House Event Are Real, But They Are (PHOTOS)

President Joe Biden held a note card Thursday appearing to show very detailed instructions for the president to follow and, to be honest, we cannot believe they are real.

The card has several bullet points listed, including some very basic instructions.

“YOU enter the Roosevelt Room and say hello to participants,” the first bullet reads.

“YOU take YOUR seat.”

“Press enters.”

“YOU give brief comment,” the card continues.

“YOU thank participants.”

 

STILL SEARCHING FOR KAMALA’S TALENT… Kamala’s Basketball Skills Are Almost As Good As Her Handling Of The Border Crisis (VIDEO)

Vice President Kamala Harris showed off her lack of basketball skills Wednesday, and the clip went viral online with many comparing it to her handling of the U.S.-Mexico border crisis.

Harris reportedly missed five of six shots at American University, according to the New York Post. After repeatedly missing the shot, Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff stepped in and coached his wife on the best way to make the shot, according to videos shared on Twitter.

Harris’s basketball skills followed an awkward history lesson Monday where she told a group of school-age children at the National Museum of African American History & Culture that black people were not free in America for 400 years, according to another NY Post report. Slavery was abolished after 246 years of practice, the outlet noted.

WILL THERE BE DESTRUCTION AFTER DOBBS? … CHURCHES, PREGNANCY CENTERS ON HIGH ALERT… LILA ROSE: BREAKING: The Department of Homeland Security is communicating with Catholic Churches and pregnancy centers, telling them to be prepared for a “Night of Rage” by pro-abortion groups pledging “extreme violence” the night of the Dobbs decision.

This is the most coordinated & aggressive domestic terrorism in our nation today. All because extremists are angry that they may not get to kill children in the womb, on demand, without limit. Yet there is virtual silence from @JoeBiden, @SpeakerPelosi & most media groups. Why?

 

WHITE HOUSE LAYS GROUNDWORK FOR TANTRUM… Karine Jean-Pierre Won’t Say Whether Biden Will Accept SCOTUS Ruling On Roe As ‘Legitimate’ (VIDEO)

“We are just still trying to go through and having that discussion to see what our options are before we move forward, we don’t want to get ahead of the president clearly but if, you know, and I’ve said this before, if indeed there is a, if the Supreme Court in the decision, the Dobbs decision overturns Roe, we will ask Congress to restore Roe.”

“Just to be clear, will the President accept this decision as legitimate, even if he disagrees with it?”

“It’s gonna come from the Supreme Court, so it’s going to be a decision that we certainly are going to respond to, so I’ll leave it at, it’s just like any other Supreme Court decision, just like the one that they did today on guns,” Jean-Pierre said. “So as we know, the draft was leaked so we don’t want to speak to that too much until there’s an actual decision which we know is supposed to be coming. So we’re all, just like you, waiting to see when that happens, but in the meantime we’re doing our due diligence to be prepared.”

 

SUPREMES STRIKE DOWN NEW YORK’S CORRUPT GUN PERMIT SYSTEM… Supreme Court Issues Death Blow To Concealed Carry Law

The Supreme Court struck down a New York State gun law that required individuals to show “proper cause” to obtain a concealed carry permit Thursday.

The case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Keith M. Corlett, centered on two New York residents, Robert Nash and Brandon Koch, who both applied for concealed carry permits in Rensselaer County but were denied by the licensing officer, who said the individuals “failed to show ‘proper cause’ to carry a firearm in public for the purpose of self-defense, because [they] did not demonstrate a special need for self-defense that distinguished [them] from the general public.”

New York bans the open carry of handguns but permits concealed carry so long as the applicant can prove “proper cause” exists. All licenses are issued by either the county sheriff or the court system.

Nash cited a string of robberies as his “proper cause” and noted he completed a firearm safety course. Koch relied on his “extensive experience in the safe handling and operation of firearms and the many safety training courses he had completed.”

The court ruled 6-3 that the “proper-cause requirement violates the Fourteenth Amendment by preventing law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms in public for self-defense.”

 

JUSTICE THOMAS DROPS NUKE ON GUN GRABBERS…

A short prologue is in order. Even before the Civil War commenced in 1861, this Court indirectly affirmed the importance of the right to keep and bear arms in public. Writing for the Court in Dred Scott v. Sandford, 19 How. 393 (1857), Chief Justice Taney offered what he thought was a parade of horribles that would result from recognizing that free blacks were citizens of the United States. If blacks were citizens, Taney fretted, they would be entitled to the privileges and immunities of citizens, including the right “to keep and carry arms wherever they went.” Id., at 417 (emphasis added). Thus, even Chief Justice Taney recognized (albeit unenthusiastically in the case of blacks) that public carry was a component of the right to keep and bear arms—a right free blacks were often denied in antebellum America.

INSURRECTION BEGINS… ‘Dissolve The Supreme Court’: Liberals Go Ballistic Over SCOTUS Upholding Gun Rights

Liberals criticized the Supreme Court Thursday after it ruled New York’s requirement that applicants for concealed carry permits must prove they had “good cause” violated the Second Amendment.

“Because the State of New York issues public-carry licenses only when an applicant demonstrates a special need for self-defense, we conclude that the State’s licensing regime violates the Constitution,” Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas wrote for a 6-3 majority in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen.

Reaction to the ruling from liberals was very critical, with some calling for states to defy the court’s ruling.

“It has become necessary to dissolve the Supreme Court of the United States,” former sportscaster Keith Olbermann posted on Twitter. “The first step is for a state the “court” has now forced guns upon, to ignore this ruling. Great. You’re a court? Why and how do think you can enforce your rulings? #IgnoreTheCourt.”

 

WINNING LAWYERS CHASED OUT OF THEIR OWN LAW FIRM… PAUL CLEMENT & ERIN MURPHY, IN WSJ: The Law Firm That Got Tired of Winning

We are blessed to have represented before the Supreme Court a wide variety of clients, from large corporations and religious orders to criminal defendants and Native American groups. After we prevail before the high court, we generally receive a round of congratulatory messages from law-firm colleagues for a job well done, especially when we have helped our clients vindicate their fundamental constitutional rights.

This time around, we received a very different message from our law firm. Having just secured a landmark decision vindicating our clients’ constitutional Second Amendment rights in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, we were presented with a stark choice—withdraw from representing them or withdraw from the firm. There was only one choice: We couldn’t abandon our clients simply because their positions are unpopular in some circles. […]

The American legal profession’s willingness to take on and stand by controversial clients has made our system of justice the envy of the world. The profession shouldn’t back down from its willingness to tackle the most divisive issues. We certainly won’t.

 

FIRM ‘WILL NO LONGER REPRESENT CLIENTS IN SECOND AMENDMENT MATTERS’ … REUTERS: Paul Clement to start new litigation firm as Kirkland eschews gun cases

Prominent litigators Paul Clement and Erin Murphy said in a statement Thursday they are leaving Kirkland & Ellis to start their own small litigation firm, shortly after Kirkland said it will no longer represent clients in Second Amendment matters. […]

Kirkland announced the new policy and the pair’s departure hours after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down New York state’s limits on carrying concealed handguns in public in a 6-3 ruling.

BIDEN JUSTICE DEPARTMENT CONDEMNS COURT RULING… Department Of Justice Denounces Supreme Court Ruling On Guns

The Department of Justice (DOJ) released a statement Thursday disagreeing with the Supreme Court’s ruling in a case involving a New York concealed carry law.

“We respectfully disagree with the Court’s conclusion that the Second Amendment forbids New York’s reasonable requirement that individuals seeking to carry a concealed handgun must show that they need to do so for self-defense,” the statement read.

“The Department of Justice remains committed to saving innocent lives by enforcing and defending federal firearms laws, partnering with state, local and tribal authorities and using all legally available tools to tackle the epidemic of gun violence plaguing our communities,” the DOJ added.

 

NY’S UNELECTED GOVERNOR ATTACKS COURT… ‘I’M SORRY THIS DARK DAY HAS COME’… ‘I’m Prepared To Go Back To Muskets’: New York Gov. Hochul Rages Over SCOTUS Overturning Concealed Carry Law (VIDEO)

Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul angrily responded to the Supreme Court ruling overturning her state’s gun law that required individuals to show “proper cause” to obtain a concealed carry permit in a Thursday address.

The case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Keith M. Corlett, challenged the state regulation requiring “proper cause” to obtain a license to carry handguns in public. The Court struck down the law Thursday, ruling that proper cause “violates the Fourteenth Amendment” by preventing law-abiding citizens from keeping and bearing arms for self-defense purposes.

Hochul blasted the decision of the “politicized Supreme Court” that New York “must demonstrate that the regulation is consistent with this nation’s history and tradition of firearm regulation.” She claimed the Court has “taken away” the state’s right to implement “reasonable restrictions” on gun ownership.

“We’re not powerless in this situation. We’re not going to cede our rights that easily, despite the best efforts of the politicized Supreme Court of the United States of America,” she began. “No longer can we strike the balance … Shocking. Absolutely shocking that they have taken away our right to have reasonable restrictions. We can have restrictions on speech. You can’t yell ‘fire’ in a crowded theater. But somehow there’s no restrictions allowed on the Second Amendment. This is New York, we don’t back down. We fight back.”

“I’m sorry this dark day has come,” she continued.

 

SENATE PUSHES THROUGH GUN RESTRICTIONS… 15 REPUBLICANS ABANDON COLLEAGUES… Senate Passes Bipartisan Gun Control Legislation

The Senate passed the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act on Thursday night, the most significant piece of gun legislation to clear the upper chamber since the 1994 assault weapons ban.

The legislation, negotiated by 10 Democrats and 10 Republicans, includes incentives for states to pass red flag laws and increased funding for mental health services, among other provisions. Republican Texas Sen. John Cornyn spearheaded the legislation in the aftermath of mass shootings at a Buffalo, New York supermarket and a Uvalde, Texas elementary school.

Fifteen Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, joined all 50 Democrats in voting for the bill.

 

‘RED FLAG’ LAWS WILL DRAIN BANK ACCOUNTS FOR LAWYERS… The Gun Control Legislation Will Strip You Of Rights — Then ‘Bankrupt’ You To Get Them Back

Some Americans may have to pay a pretty penny to have their constitutional right to bear arms restored after a group of bipartisan senators introduced gun control legislation that does not include a government-provided lawyer, should a state enforce red flag laws.

The legislation, which the Senate voted to advance Tuesday night, reads in part “the right to be represented by counsel at no expense to the government.”

In simpler terms, individuals who have their firearm confiscated by officials under these red flag laws may have a lawyer, so long as they can afford to pay for it themselves.

“The requirement for a red flag law to receive funding includes a provision requiring legal representation for the accused but does not require the government to pay for it,” firearms expert and founder at The Reload Stephen Gutowski told the Daily Caller.

 

‘WE LIKE OUR [GUNS] HERE’ … Marjorie Taylor Greene Tells British Reporter To Go Back To The UK If She Doesn’t Like The Second Amendment (VIDEO)

Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene told a British journalist to go back to the U.K. if she has a problem with the Second Amendment.

Speaking at the Capitol Wednesday during a press conference, Greene said it was her “job to defend the Second Amendment.”

The unidentified journalist then said the U.K. doesn’t have mass shootings.

“We don’t have guns in the U.K., that is true, but we don’t have mass shootings either. And our children aren’t scared to go to school.”

“You have mass stabbings, lady,” Greene said. “You have all kinds of murder, and you’ve got laws against that.”

“Nothing like the same rates here,” the journalist pushed back.

“Well, you can go back to your country and worry about your no guns,” Greene responded. “We like ours here.”

 

TITLE IX IS NOW A SHIELD FOR MEN TO REPLACE WOMEN… ‘Total Rejection Of Fairness And Safety’: Biden Admin Proposes Reinterpreting Decades-Old Civil Rights Law To Include Protections For ‘Gender Identity’

President Joe Biden’s Department of Education (DOE) on Thursday unveiled proposed changes to Title IX, a landmark civil rights law intended to curb sex-based discrimination in federally-funded education, that would expand the law’s protections for transgender students.

The proposed changes would expand protections against discrimination on the basis of sex under Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” according to a DOE press release. Title IX prohibits schools receiving federal funding from excluding any student on the basis of sex.

The rule change will require every sex-separated space, program, building, bathroom and locker room to accommodate individuals “who may feel as though they are women, even though biologically, they are men,” Sarah Perry, a senior legal fellow for The Heritage Foundation, previously told The Daily Caller News Foundation. The proposed changes could in effect force schools to allow biological males into women’s bathrooms in order to receive federal funding.

 

TULSI TORCHES… ‘THEY’RE SAYING THAT THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A WOMAN’… ‘Essentially Erase Women’: Tulsi Gabbard Slams Biden Admin’s Overhaul Of Key Civil Rights Law

Former Hawaii Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said the Biden administration would “essentially erase women” by overhauling a key civil rights law to threaten women’s sports during an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The Department of Education (DOE) announced proposed changes to Title IX, a prohibition against sex-based discrimination in federally-funded schools, on Thursday that would expand protections under the law to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” according to a DOE press release. Gabbard said it was the responsibility of the local, state and national governments to protect Title IX and women’s sports while criticizing the Biden administration.

“I think there’s a role at every level of government to take action to protect the original intent of Title IX, which recognized the biological difference between men and women, and to protect our young girls and women – yes, in sports, but really across the board,” Gabbard told TheDCNF. “When you look at Title IX, it certainly was not limited to sports at all. It has had an immeasurable impact on girls and women over the last 50 years.”

“A lot of women fought very, very hard to put Title IX in place, which is why it’s so disturbing to see the Biden Administration and other very influential people in our society so easily pushing to not only get rid of that progress but essentially erase women,” she said. “They’re saying that there is no such thing as a woman.”

 

MORE SANITY IN SAN FRAN… FOX: San Francisco school board restores merit based admission system to elite high school

The San Francisco Unified School District’s board of education has voted to restore a merit based admission system.

In a 4–3 vote on Wednesday night, the board voted to re-implement the merit based system two years after switching to a lottery-based system that the board said would address concerns about alleged racism, lack of diversity, and lack of data caused by remote learning during the coronavirus pandemic.

The vote comes months after voters in San Francisco recalled three progressive school board members after a push from parents voicing concerns that social justice goals had become more important to the board than academic goals and reopening schools.

KINZINGER USES *ERIC HOLDER* AS AN EXAMPLE OF A MODEL AG… WHO HE ONCE CONDEMNED AS AN ‘OBSTRUCTIONIST’… JONATHAN TURLEY: One of the most glaring disconnects in the 1/6 hearings yesterday when Rep. Adam Kinzinger cited former Attorney General Eric Holder as an example of the ideal of an apolitical and independent Attorney General…

…Kinzinger called out Holder for his obstruction. He signed a “no confidence” motion in 2011. The motion included the charge that Holder “has been intransigent, obstructionist, and obdurate” in fighting disclosure of the evidence in the scandal.
