"For weeks, White House officials have been huddling with state leaders advocates, healthcare professionals and others to prepare for a future without roe V wade. And now that day has arrived with the court's conservative majority Friday, overturning officially, the landmark decision that legalized abortion nationwide. White House has been hesitant to reveal what executive actions the president is considering. This morning, we turned to bob Cusack. Editor in chief of the hill with his take on what if anything our nation's leader could do about this. It remains unclear what the president is going to do, but it's going to have limited authority and really the activity is going to be at the state level where some blue states Democrat states will be expanding abortion rights and red states conservative states will be limiting. So because obviously this kicks it to the states, that's the big issue and thing to watch now. Of course, Democrats saying, hey, this is an election issue, but Republicans also say that. So House speaker Nancy Pelosi is talking about Congress codifying a woman's right to choose. It seems highly unlikely anything would pass. What is the speaker saying exactly? Yes, there's legislation that was discussed after the decision was leaked a little while back, but they don't have the votes for that. Back in the Obama administration, they did have the votes, but it wasn't a priority. And really, this decision, remember, the 2016 election was very important between Trump and Clinton because Trump won and then added three judges. And that's why we had this decision right now. Does it appear that this decision could be a galvanizing moment for Democrats ahead of the midterms? It's going to fire up the base and the base hasn't been fired up because they've been disappointed with a number of things, including build back better dying on the legislative agenda. But this will fire up the base. It does fire up the Republican base, but the Republicans were already fired up. So Democrats are going to talk about this on the campaign trail. What about the ruling adding to this push this effort to increase the size of the court? That's another issue that the progressives want, but they don't have the votes to do it. Will there be more talk of that? Yes, but unless Democrats get a lot more Democrats in the Congress, which doesn't look likely that legislation can't pass. You have to wonder bob if members of the Senate for the next round of Supreme Court confirmation hearings will have some very strong questions about Supreme Court precedent because the answers we've heard from those who have been nominated for the high court have all talked about preserving Supreme Court precedents. That's right. Senator Susan Collins, who supported Brett Kavanaugh, said she was disappointed on that. So that's going to be a line of questioning. And the control of the Senate is very important because if Mitch McConnell is a majority

Ketanji Brown Jackson Has the Votes After Collins Boost
"At this point, I would have to say that judge katon G Brown Jackson looks like she will make it. To the Supreme Court. I saw today that senator Susan Collins of Maine said that she intended to vote for Jackson, now I think this is the first public statement by Republican senator saying that they were going to vote for Jackson. I think Romney said that he was undecided. He was looking further into her record, but I'm guessing that she's going to get one maybe two, maybe three, Republican votes, and that of course is enough. In fact, it gives the Democrats a small margin in the unlikely event that they lose mansion and or cinema. They've got Republicans to make up for it. So I think Jackson looks at this point to have relatively safe passage. But it's a very interesting development here, which is that one of the main themes in the hearings has been relatively light sentences handed out to people involved in child porn cases. And it turns out that The White House appears to have left out an important case that she decided less than a year before she was elevated to the D.C. circuit court and they did it because they didn't want her record to look bad. Now, the case is called U.S. versus Kane. And it involved really a massive download of files, 6500 files, children, elementary school, middle school, either nude, or in various compromising positions, but apparently there was also sadism, masochism. I mean, this was a horrible dump of really bad stuff. And the guy who did all this, the probation office said, listen, he deserves to go to prison for 84 months in the case. So 7 years. But can tanji Jackson goes, no, I'm gonna go below, and I'm gonna give him only 60 months, which is to say 5 years. Now, 5 years, 7 years. I mean, the point here is that there's a consistent pattern of ketanji Jackson minimizing the seriousness of these cases and letting these offenders go off with lighter
Sen. Collins Backs Ketanji Brown Jackson for Supreme Court
"Some bad news as predictable as the sun rising in the east and setting in the west. You can always count on a rhino to abandon the Republican Party. Breaking now on the Mike Gallagher show, Republican senator Susan Collins of Maine will vote to confirm Biden's Supreme Court nominee ketanji Brown Jackson. She of course will be the first GOP senator to do so, but she won't be the only one. Who's next? What about Lindsey Graham? Think Lindsey Graham will vote yes, there's no, I don't think there's any way. There's no way I've seen Lindsey Graham's interviews on TV. It's impossible. The only problem is he's already voted for. He voted yes to be an appeals judge. Appeals court judge. So perhaps he'll belly up to the bar with Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski and probably Mitt Romney. I don't know who else.

"You know, the world as a changes and evolves just seems to have caused them or is causing them an incredible amount of adjective and this is just sort of adding to it. But I also think that the fact that, you know, Biden said that it's time for a black woman to serve on the Supreme Court. It's beyond time for that to happen. And that he made a point of being quite intentional about that. But I think has just caused them to start down this road that I hesitate to use the word racist, but certainly has troubling racial stereotypes attached to their language. And I think it's just sort of drawing out this incredible fear of the ways in which the culture is changing. And the ways in which the power structure is shifting so that it's not solely in the hands of white men. And I think all those fears have unleashed a kind of illogic and a fear that is just really troubling. Yeah, I wanted to read a little excerpt from the piece because I thought it was so great. You wrote when Trump promised to nominate a woman to fill the seat left vacant by Ginsburg, that decision was greeted with a nod and polite applause. During justice Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation in 2020, conservatives repeatedly referenced her 7 children. They marveled at her ability to balance her maternal responsibilities with her professional accomplishments, and they oozed admiration for her devotion to family. They planted her atop a pedestal of divine femininity, a kind of glorification that rarely shines on black women. I thought that was really great. I was imagining if Biden nominated a black woman with 7 children, the way that Ted Cruz would respond to that. I shudder to think the way that Ted Cruz would respond to that. It really does that when you, when I hear those responses, it makes me question a lot of things about who they surround themselves with, who they think they are representing who their constituents are, who they think they are delighting with comments like that. I mean, it is, it's really astonishing to me that they can actually look back over the history of the court who look back over history from barely two years ago and act so shocked and appalled about Biden's decision. And the necessity to great degree for that kind of decision. And you know, and I'm also just sort of was really struck by the just the sheer disingenuousness of so much of it. I mean, you know, senator Susan Collins getting all of her concerns and a half over the sudden politicization of a Supreme Court nomination..

We don't need we do not need a repeat of 2020 when by all accounts our last president having lost the election sought to change the results. Said Murkowski. She said the Senate debate had declined to a troubling state. You're either a racist or a hypocrite. Really? Really, is that where we are?

Cinema sat in her chair throughout much of the days debate, largely glued to her phone, but rose to her feet to deliver her vote against the rules change. In a statement, cinema said the outcome must not be the end of our work to protect our democracy, but she warned these challenges can not be solved by one party or Washington alone. Schumer contended the fight is not over, and he ridiculed Republican claims that the new election laws in the states will not end up hurting voter access and turnout, comparing it to Trump's big lie about the 2020 presidential election. Democrats decided to press ahead, despite the potential for high stakes defeat as Biden is marking his first year in office with his priorities stalling out in the face of solid Republican opposition, and the Democrats and ability to unite around their own goals. They wanted to force senators on the record even their own party's holdouts to show voters where they stand. Once reluctant himself to change Senate rules, Biden has stepped up his pressure on senators to do just that. But the pushman The White House, including Biden's blistering speech last week in Atlanta, comparing opponents to segregationists, is.

In December, We approved another $900 billion and lesson 20% of those dollars have been spent, but we have to do now is take a step back and find out how to effectively manages virus and I would say Perhaps we're already there.

Yeah, I just wonder why. Why, why you still waiting on that? Because I know there's a lot of people out there waiting on that $600 check. You know what I mean?
