    Old McBoingBoing couldn't bulldoze his way out of a wet paper bag. He IS good at pedaling fear however.

    President Biden calls for dropping filibuster rules to put abortion rights into law


    President Joe Biden said on Thursday that he would support making an exception to the filibuster -- the 60-vote threshold in the Senate needed to pass most legislation -- in order to codify abortion rights and the right to privacy through legislation passed by Congress.

    Asked about what executive action he would use to strengthen abortion rights following the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Biden said, "The most important thing ... we have to change, I believe, we have to codify Roe v Wade in the law."

    "And the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that. And if the filibuster gets in the way, it's like voting rights -- it should be (that) we provide an exception to this ... requiring an exception to the filibuster for this action to deal with the Supreme Court decision," he added.

    Biden told CNN's Anderson Cooper at a town hall last year that he would be open to altering the filibuster to pass voting rights legislation "and maybe more."

    .. the filibuster creates a minority rule situation in the US Senate that has been very detrimental to USA.

    Five politically appointed Supreme Court Justices have overturned the wishes of the great majority of US citizens regarding female rights sending the US back 50 years.

    You can try and pick away at little snippets of her statement but the overall message was very compelling.

    As usual your media source is considered very biased

    Except it was heresay and not true.

    ... you need to convince the Dept of Justice of that.

    The Dept of Justice has already formed it's own investigative unit re criminal charges for all players in the Jan 6th coup attempt led by Donald Trump.

    The leaders of the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers, the organized para-military part of the Jan 6th riots, have both been convicted of "seditious conspiracy" which is one step below treason.

    800+ riot participants have been sentenced to lengthy jail times or house arrest.

    At least five people died directly as a result of the riot and many more were seriously injured or severely traumatized.

    A lot of property damage was caused to the Capitol Building and surrounding area.

    In many countries around the world, coup leaders breath their last breath within days of conviction.

    White House announces free public tours will resume full operating schedule on July 19


    Public tours of the White House will resume a full operating schedule on July 19 for the first time since they were suspended in 2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the White House announced Monday.

    Limited tours of the White House resumed earlier this year on Fridays and Saturdays but will be offered Tuesdays through Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET, excluding federal holidays, under the full operating schedule. The tours are free to the public and can be scheduled through the office of a member of Congress.

    The White House says it will continue to monitor Covid-19 and operate based on guidance provided by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Face masks are not currently required for the tours. Anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19, has symptoms or has been exposed to the virus within 10 days of their scheduled tour is being told to stay home.

    The White House has hosted several large-scale events at the White House in recent months, after being unable to do so for much of President Joe Biden's first year in office. The President and first lady Jill Biden welcomed thousands of guests to the South Lawn of the White House in April for the Easter Egg Roll, an annual holiday tradition that had been canceled for the past two years because of the pandemic. The White House also hosted spring garden tours this year, which were free and open to the public.

    The Biden administration has been trying to move the country into a new phase of the pandemic that is less disruptive to Americans' daily lives.

    A significant development in the nation's fight against Covid-19 came earlier this month, when the US Food and Drug Administration expanded the emergency use authorizations for the Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccines to include children as young as 6 months.

    Moderna's vaccine is now authorized for use in children 6 months through 17 years and Pfizer/BioNTech's for children 6 months through 4 years.

    About 17 million kids under age 5 are now are eligible for Covid-19 vaccines.

    Re: The Shining City Upon a Hill

    In a setback for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Republican lawmakers, a Florida judge has ruled that a new state law banning abortions at 15 weeks is unconstitutional and he intends to block it from taking effect on Friday.

    In a verbal ruling on Thursday, Second Judicial Circuit Court Judge John Cooper said he would be issuing a temporary statewide injunction that will go into effect once he signs the written order in the challenge brought by some Florida abortion providers.

    The decision is a short-term victory for abortion rights advocates in Florida and it comes a week after the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and eliminated a constitutional right that had existed for half a century. For the time being, abortion in Florida will remain legal until 24 weeks into a pregnancy, making the state one of the most permissive in the south

    A new ruling of today by the Supreme Court limits the ability of the Environmental Protection Agency to reduce green house gas emissions largely generated by the electrical utility industry and the coal industry.

    This ruling demonstrates for the third time in a week how this politically appointed right wing Court is out of touch with the majority of Americans on the major topics of abortion, climate change and guns. A clear case of the minority ruling the majority and sure to bring out more demands for expanding the number of Supreme Court judges.
