Biden Is Anticipated To Announce A Historic Release Of Strategic Oil Reserves From The United States

In the fall of 2017, I sat in the crowded press room of the Supreme Court, listening to a lawyer called Paul Smith pleading with the justices to overturn the Wisconsin state assembly districts. He said that they were skewed so heavily in favor of Republicans that they violated the US constitution. As Smith began to present his case, Chief Justice John Roberts interjected and described what he thought might happen if the Supreme Court intervened and began policing partisan electoral maps.

“We’ll have to decide whether the Democrats or Republicans win in every situation.” As a result, it’ll be a problem for everyone. And if you’re the wise guy on the street, and the court rules in your favor, and let’s say the Democrats win, you’ll ask, “Why did the Democrats win?” According to Roberts. “It’s got to be because the Supreme Court favored Democrats over Republicans.” And as these lawsuits are brought in each state, this will be revealed one case at a time. And that will have a significant negative impact on the status and integrity of this court’s judgments in the eyes of the country.”

The Wisconsin districts were subsequently affirmed by the high court on technical grounds. However, in 2019, the court and the whole federal judiciary were removed from monitoring partisan gerrymandering. “Partisan gerrymandering allegations raise political issues outside the federal court’s jurisdiction,” Roberts wrote. He mentioned state courts as a possible venue for litigants to file claims. Those two instances together demonstrate Roberts’ apprehension about involving the court in redistricting matters, which are highly politicized fights that could jeopardize the court’s apolitical reputation.

Mike Pence, the former vice president who feuded with Donald Trump over the latter’s obsessive attempts to reclaim the 2020 presidential race, has unveiled a policy blueprint pushing Republicans to move forward rather than backward. According to Politico, Pence reminded reporters that elections are about the future as he issued a 19-page “freedom agenda” aimed to guide his party’s policy stances for this year’s midterm elections and the 2024 presidential election. Pence’s underlying message is apparent, even while the document advocates conservative ideas to heal the “damage” he claims “the radical left” has inflicted on the US since Joe Biden took over the White House last year. Republicans have no business backing Trump’s efforts to re-run the 2020 election, which he lost by almost 7 million votes.

On the Wednesday conversation, Marc Short, Pence’s former chief of staff, told reporters, “He strongly believes it is vital to have a forward-looking agenda for the American people and not look backward.” Analysts regard Pence’s announcement of the plan as an attempt to position himself in the fight for the Republican presidential nominee in 2024. It’s not the first time he’s taken a shot at Trump. On the day of the 6 January insurgency, Trump’s fans wanted to hang Vice President Joe Biden after he refused to concede to the one-term president’s demand that he not declare Biden’s victory. At a conservative convention in Florida in February, he told Trump flatly that he was “wrong” to assume the election could be overturned.
