During a White House briefing, Doocy referenced Florida’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” law that bans discussion of sexuality for younger students.
“Does the White House support that kind of classroom instruction before kindergarten?” Doocy asked.
“Do you have examples of schools in Florida that are teaching kindergarteners about sex education?” Psaki fired back.
“I’m just asking,” I got nothing Doocy said, unable to provide examples.
“I never imagined that one of my sacred duties in this hallowed chamber would be explaining to the House Speaker the difference between a man and a woman,” he continued. “Take notes, Madame Speaker, I’m about to define what a woman is for you.”
Cawthorn then offered his definition: "XX chromosomes, no Tallywacker."
“It’s so simple,” he said. “And yet, today, this proclamation of fundamental scientific fact will cause the woke liberals in Silicon Valley to strip you of your voice and ban you until you bow at their altar of falsehoods.”
Most Supreme Court nominees come prepared for an examination of their past statements, past decisions and body of work. That didn’t happen with Judge Jackson. Out of the hundreds and hundreds of cases, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) singled out a handful of cases where Judge Jackson pointed to outdated sentencing laws to account for an era of child exploitation images sent over electronics.
She urged Congress to update laws on such things to take into account the age of the internet and not the mail. The average of the sentences in those four cases was lower than the average. If the GOP averaged all of the cases, beyond those four, they’d find her sentences were over the average recommendations.
Speaking to O’Donnell, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), “Yeah I mean you actually think Ted Cruz was running around that elementary school library pulling books off shelves looking for something offensive. No, this stuff gets fed to them in this case it was his old opposite guy who was doing some of the research.”
He’s referring to a collection of conservative groups that all share the same address. Everything from the Independent Women’s Forum to Independent Women’s Voice, Independent Women’s Law Center, which are attached to Leonard Leo. He is a former Executive Vice President of the Federalist Society and a close ally of Cruz who introduced him when speaking to the FederalistSociety.
His groups are The 85 Fund and The Concord Fund, which previously went under the name The Judicial Crisis Network. They’re all funded by the Kochs and Betsy DeVos’ family and supported the “big lie” that Trump won the 2020 election. These networks of dark money groups also have Sen. Josh Hawley’s wife working on staff.
