Could Newsom actually get approved as Veep by our current 50-50 Senate, especially if Harris has already resigned and can't cast a tie-breaking vote?

We'll see Newsom make his own run at the White House sooner or later. Personally, I'm convinced he's gonna get squashed when it happens - I think he's too keyed into California-style politics (which he barely makes work, thus the recall) to be able to adapt enough to be competitive nationally.

I'd love to see Newsom make a run on the national level just so he gets exposed for the greasy tool that he is. Then be banished back to CA to have him live the remainder of his days has a has-been governor of a one party state, which he still managed to screw up.

Yes the token press secretary actually said this


White House Press Secretary ‘Unconstitutional’ For Supreme Court To Overturn Roe V. Wade

https://valiantnews.com/2022/0...overturn-roe-v-wade/

During a White House press briefing on Wednesday, Biden Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre accused the United States Supreme Court of violating the Constitution by ruling that Roe v. Wade was unconstitutional.

The Supreme Court, representing the top of the judicial branch of the US government that is meant to check the power of both the executive and legislative branches, is an institution designed to be the final arbiter of what the founding document actually means when it comes to the legality of actions taken by the legislative and executive branches.

Jean-Pierre, speaking on behalf of the White House, disagrees, and adds that by doing their job and subsequently delivering pro-abortion Democrats an unfavorable outcome, SCOTUS had taken an “unconstitutional action.”

“The Supreme Court made this extreme decision to take away a constitutional right. It was an unconstitutional action by them,” stated Jean-Pierre. “A right that was around for almost fifty years. A right that women had to make a decision on their bodies and how they want to start their families.”

Another example of the point I made in another recent thread:
Search for “justices of the supreme court,” and the answer will appear immediately.

Understanding anything about the court beyond that requires knowing enough about the concept of constitutional law to be able to begin to frame a useful question before going on from there. And going on from there then requires a modicum of reading comprehension skills, not to mention the discipline and patience to actually read an appropriate discussion of the issue. So no, the answers to even today's important complex questions are not instantly available at everyone’s fingertips.

I don't disagree that she, and many in the "biden" administration are stupid and incompetent, but I also don't believe they truly believe everything they say.

Look at AOC for just one example - she cries in a parking lot for the cameras, and the sheep believe she is weeping over caged children. She is politely led away by police, and she acts as though she were hand cuffed.

These people, to paraphrase the Bible, 'when they lie, they are speaking their native language.' I bet she knows very well these actions are constitutional, but the truth doesn't matter to these people. It only matters what they can get people to believe. She is simply trying to provoke people to action. Expect MUCH MORE of this as the mid terms approach.

You have to consider the Communist media in THIS country have downloaded the TASS and Pravda Propaganda Manual. "Steps to Mind-Control of the Masses 101"...

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24

Biden EPA Announces ‘Flyovers’ of Key US Oil- and Gas-Producing Region

https://www.theepochtimes.com/...Wcw9XO7Fgu%2FX5ObOyv

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said it will conduct “flyovers” of the Permian Basin region in Texas and New Mexico to “survey oil and gas operations to identify large emitters of methane” amid the Biden administration’s climate policy initiative.

“The flyovers are vital to identifying which facilities are responsible for the bulk of these emissions and therefore where reductions are most urgently needed,” said Earthea Nance, an EPA official, in an Aug. 1 news release. The flyovers, which will use infrared cameras, will be conducted until Aug. 15, the agency said.

With the announcement, it means the administration will continue to target the oil and gas industry, coming after President Joe Biden sent letters to the heads of major oil companies in June and threatened to take action to increase supply. The move drew pushback from the CEOs of ExxonMobil and Chevron, who both accused Biden of taking an increasingly hostile approach to the industry.

The Permian Basin accounts for 43 percent of the nation’s oil supply, meaning any federal regulation or rules may impact gas prices nationwide.

“The flyovers will continue through August 15. By emphasizing identification of potential super-emitters, this effort builds on previous aerial surveillance efforts in the Permian Basin area starting in 2019,” the EPA release said.


Its announcement came days after an Associated Press report claimed that 533 gas and oil facilities in the Permian Basin are emitting what it described as excessive amounts of methane. But an EPA spokesperson told the Washington Post this week that the flyovers are not connected to AP’s article.

Republican Criticism

Republicans are poised to target the EPA’s flyover announcement and blame the Biden administration for causing further pain at the pump.

Several weeks ago, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, warned that an EPA proposal reversing a 2017 decision to designate certain regions in the Permian Basin as compliant with 2015 Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards would imperil the U.S. oil supply.

“While you express concern about out-of-control gas prices, your Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is threatening to increase them even further,” Abbot wrote in a letter to the White House in late June. “The EPA’s process could interfere in the production of oil in Texas which could lead to skyrocketing prices at the pump by reducing production, increase the cost of that production, or do both.

“Your administration’s announced action is completely discretionary. Thus, you have the power to stop it. If you do not, this action alone might serve as a catalyst for economic harm leading to an even deeper reliance on imported foreign energy and a faster economic decline into the pending recession by forcing even more pain for American consumers to pay at the pump,” the governor said.

Will the fly-over aircraft be powered by clean, emission-free, electric motors?

Democrats to work this weekend to pass the "inflation reduction bill" that doesn't reduce inflation. Just more govt spending.

Reports are that DEM senators will not be testing for Covid. They won't delay voting if a member has Covid. Just wear masks and get it done.

Biden’s mind is clearly unstable. The signs of dementia are as clear as crystal. Can you imagine the furor the democRATs would be raising if Trump had even ONE of these episodes? They’d have absolutely been howling for his removal.
