At today's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) pointed to a "really inappropriate" quote of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson concerning CRT and sentencing. We are going to show you some lines of this conversation, but if you want to know the complete info, do watch the video shown below this article.

Sen. Marsha said:
 I closed out last night with Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson reading back to her some of her opening statements. You talk about preserving our form of government. You talk about preserving equal access, equal justice. There was a comment in judge Jackson's opening that I read back to her because she left out something very important. I'm going to read this too. I'd like your comment and I have been a judge for nearly a decade now and I take that responsibility and my duty to be independent very seriously. 

I decide cases from a neutral posture. I interpret and apply the law to the fact he of the case before me without fear or favor consistent with my judicial oath. I told her, there was a word missing from that, that I thought deserved more attention. That was it should have been there, that it should be consistent with the constitution because that should be where justice goes first. Is that not correct. 

 A senator replied and said: That's correct. I think largely because the constitution of course gives the federal government only limited enumerated powers, to be able to have a context, one needs to think about whether congress or the federal government is authorized to take the action.

Sen. Blackburn then commented and said: And where the text is false and the judge's role. You know, we had a very different time, never got her to nail down her judicial authority, philosophy. That concerned us. There's another thing. This is where she talked about C.R.T. In sentencing. This was from a 2015 speech. I felt like this was really inappropriate. I also tried to convince you that sentencing is just plain interesting, on an intellectual part, mess together law, criminal law, but also administrative law, constitutional law. Critical race theory. Is crystal race theory a type of law?

Then another senator replied to Blackburn by saying: 
Well senator Blackburn, I teach and none involve critical race theory (CRT). So, I would not be the best expert. As far as sentencing in that area, if important focus on the text law and congress if the federal level would have the largest role in terms of stabbing the range of appropriate sentences for a crime.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) fired at Elon Musk after she claimed her Twitter notifications were not working.  In an Instagram story posted on Wednesday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that her Twitter notifications were no longer working after she criticized Elon Musk. The criticism was over Musk's plan to charge users $8 a month to verify their accounts. Musk posted a tweet yesterday with a photo of a sweatshirt sold on the New York Democrats' website for 58 dollars. AOC fired back, saying that her workers are in a union and make a living wage, and proceeds go to, quote, "community investments" like tutoring kids. Ocasio-Cortez delighted in the fact that Musk lashed out at her, saying, quote, "We have a billionaire." That's the American dream right there.

President Joe Biden misspoke again at a rally in South Florida on Tuesday. During his remarks, President Joe Biden accidentally said that inflation was caused by quoting the war in Iraq. The president then corrected himself and said it was Ukraine, but I didn't study was quote thinking of Iraq because that's where my son died. Biden's son Beau Biden served in Iraq from 2008 to 2009.  Biden has previously claimed that Beau died in Iraq despite the fact that he died at Walter Reed many years following his service. Biden has said he believes exposures to burn pitoxins may have contributed to the cancer that claimed beau's life. He said: “They talk about inflation… inflation is a worldwide

Trump Mocks DeSantis During Pennsylvania Rally: 'Ron DeSanctimonious'

Photo "Donald Trump" by  Dan Scavino Former US President Donald Trump mocked Ron DeSantis as "Ron DeSanctimonious" at a Latrobe rally yesterday in Pennsylvania. Watch out for his complete reaction below. Trump, while addressing his rally, said these lines: Today I have the highest poll numbers I've ever had, perhaps partly because the Democrats are so severely running our country and people want our tremendous success of no inflation, energy independence, and military victory (remember, I defeated ISIS one hundred percent). Remember Al-Baghdadi and so many other things, including crime? We had it weighed down. But we have the best poll numbers; where are they putting them up on the screen? I think you should put them up and look at them. We are winning big, big, big in the Republican Party for the nomination like nobody's ever seen before. Let's say there is Trump at 71, Ron DeSanctimonious at 10 percent, and Mike Pence at seven. Targeting forme

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continued his campaign for re-election on Wednesday, focusing on cultural and war issues. DeSantis has doubled down on his controversial stance on gender-affirming care for minors; he decried the teaching of so-called gender theory in public schools. A topic that has earned him accusations of transphobia and bigotry by many LGBTQ Americans and their allies DeSantis has celebrated his state's commitment to take doctors' medical licenses if they performed gender-firming surgeries on minors as well. The issue has become a hot topic among Republican politicians, who believe it can help them win votes among parents wary of social change. This sentence is currently leading his Democratic challenger Charlie Crist by double digits. DeSantis mentioned in his speech that:
