Punchbowl News: “Schumer will submit text today to the Senate parliamentarian reflecting an agreement among all Democrats – including Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) – to allow Medicare to negotiate prescription drug costs. The parliamentarian will then begin the ‘Byrd Bath’ review process to make sure the proposal conforms with the Senate’s arcane reconciliation rules.”

“At this point, the rest of the package – informally dubbed Build Back Manchin – is up in the air. This is the low hanging fruit. Manchin has always supported this policy, as do 49 other Senate Democrats. So Schumer is starting with the lowest common denominator.”

“But this is a big deal. It represents the first formal step in reviving a new reconciliation bill for possible floor action. And Schumer is taking a risk by making this official. The top issue for Senate Democrats and the White House this month now becomes whether they can get a deal. So there’s a lot riding on this for Schumer, Manchin and President Joe Biden.”

Dr. Ben Carson Defends Clarence Thomas From Attacks By Hillary: For Liberals ‘Only Thing Worse Than Satan is a Black Conservative’

#Ben #Carson #Defends #Clarence #Thomas #Attacks #Hillary #Liberals #Worse #Satan #Black #Conservative

Dr. Ben Carson responded to racially-tinged criticism from Hillary Clinton directed at Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, suggesting the only thing liberals despise more than Satan is “a black conservative.”

Carson made his comments in an interview with Fox News host Matha MacCallum.

MacCallum aired a montage of criticisms against Thomas, mostly by so-called comedians, and delivered with a particular level of vitriol since the Supreme Court’s recent ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, for the doctor to respond.

At the end of the clip was a segment from a recent interview with former First Lady Hillary Clinton.

Clinton shockingly launched a personal attack against Thomas, the only black man sitting on the Supreme Court, saying she has always known him to be “angry” and a “person of grievance.”

Ben Carson Defends Clarence Thomas

Dr. Ben Carson responded to Hillary’s comments about Clarence Thomas, along with the personal attacks coming from bitter leftists, saying they were “nothing particularly surprising.”

He proceeded to eviscerate liberals as only a world-renowned neurosurgeon and former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University could.

“For many on the left, the only thing worse than Satan is a black conservative,” he fired back. “They feel that Clarence Thomas is ripe for particular scorn because he is black and he’s supposed to think a certain way.”

As for Hillary’s controversial comments on Thomas, Carson vehemently denied her accusations.

“I’ve known Clarence Thomas for decades. I don’t find him to be that way at all,” he replied.

The former Republican presidential candidate pointed out he and Thomas are members of the Horatio Alger Society, where he is admired “not because he is a Supreme Court justice, but because of his personality.”

“He’s a perfect example of what my mother used to tell me,” he added.

“She would say, Benjamin, if you walk into an auditorium full of racist, bigoted people, you don’t have a problem. They have a problem because they’re all going to cringe and wonder if you’re going to sit next to them, whereas you can sit anywhere you want.”

Hillary right now is cringing and hoping she never has to sit next to Clarence Thomas.

Carson’s Not Afraid to Call Out Extremists on the Left

Carson also pointed out that Thomas certainly isn’t going to let others’ “grievances, and prejudices, and hatred to affect his life.”

The good doctor has a history of knocking leftists down a peg or two using the most gentle and softspoken of approaches.

As HUD Secretary, Carson penned a letter to Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) accusing her of “shamelessness” and lacking in “basic manners.”

Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) tried to mock Carson over his appearance at a House Financial Services Committee hearing in 2019 saying, “Not sure he was fully awake.”

Carson fired back with an epic tweet in which he stacked his career credentials against hers.

“I know what it’s like to actually be sleepy, especially after 18-hour surgeries and operating on babies in the womb,” Carson replied, noting that Omar and her Democrat colleagues don’t view unborn babies “as having a right to life.”

As for Thomas, George Washington University has recently dashed the dreams of intolerant liberals who sought to get him fired from his job there as an adjunct professor.

“Because we steadfastly support the robust exchange of ideas and deliberation, and because debate is an essential part of our university’s academic and educational mission to train future leaders who are prepared to address the world’s most urgent problems, the university will neither terminate Justice Thomas’ employment nor cancel his class in response to his legal opinions,” the University responded.

Perhaps if they weren’t such angry people full of grievance, they’d come to accept Thomas as the admirable, intelligent man that Carson knows.

Exclusive: Florida county slaps warning label on LGBTQ kids who join phys ed classes or overnight trips – TalkOfNews.com

MIAMI, FLORIDA - MARCH 09: Anasofia Pelaez and Kimberly Blandon (L-R) protest in front of Florida State Senator Ileana Garcia's (FL-R) office after the passage of the Parental Rights in Education bill, dubbed the "Don't Say Gay" bill by LGBTQ activists on March 09, 2022 in Miami, Florida.  The bill passed by the Florida Senate and House would limit what classrooms can teach about sexual orientation and gender identity. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

What drew the most debate was a provision that a school will notify parents — by form — if a student who is “open about their gender identity” is in a physical education class or on an overnight trip.

Some teachers and students during the Tuesday night meeting said the policy will “out” LGBTQ+ students — revealing their sexual orientation or gender identity without their permission.

Everyone got that? LGBTQ kids are a danger to your kids because they’re different. And we can’t have that!

Of course, Florida decided to officially get into the bully kids business when Ron DeSantis, the dude who put the goober in gubernatorial, decided to sign the state’s vicious Don’t Say Gay bill, which can only be described as a hammer blow to LGBTQ kids’ self-esteem.

Needless to say, not everyone was pleased with Leon County’s cruel tack.

“The notification to all the parents can create a very stressful and unwanted situation to trans and LGBTQ students,” Leon High School student Kailey Sandell said at the school board meeting, where the guide was approved 4-0. “A lot of times kids assume that kids are gay or trans; they will easily be able to hurt them.”

Lauren Kelly-Manders, a 34-year-old Tallahassee resident who sits on the city’s LGBTQ+ Advisory Council and came out while attending Leon High School, told the Tallahassee Democrat, “Sending out a parent notification could be seen as placing a target on a student’s back.”

Gee, ya think? What better way to reduce someone to second-class-citizen status than forcing them to come with a warning label?

Anyone who felt alienated or picked on in school knows how devastating this will be for these kids. While the guide does say that students’ sexual orientation and gender identity “should not be shared with others without their input and permission,” exactly how long will that hold up in this McCarthyist environment?

I can laugh off a lot, but conservatives are cutting to the bone now. This is flat-out nauseating. Let’s target some of our most vulnerable children in the most craven and lurid way imaginable, because ‘Merica!
