Supreme Court EPA decision met with mixed reactions

The Supreme Court ruled that the Clean Air Act does not give the EPA broad or expansive powers to regulate carbon emissions, in turn, leaving it up to states. In a six to three vote on Thursday, the high court decided the executive agency could not impose regulations on states that restrict carbon emissions to encourage a transfer to renewable energy.

The decision was met with praise from Republicans who argued the EPA could not implement such regulations nationally, while Democrats viewed it as a step backwards in fighting so-called climate change. West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, who spearheaded the legal challenge, called the decision a huge victory because it reaffirms the concept of separation of powers.

“We want to make sure that the Biden agenda is limited by basis of what Congress authorized these agencies,” Morrisey. “What a concept that is and this should not be considered to be anything other than consistent with the Constitution, the rule of law, and our separation of powers.”

Meanwhile across the aisle, several Democrat governors vowed to double down on their efforts to fight so-called climate change. Washington Governor Jay Inslee (D) expressed disappointment in the decision and said state and local governments will have to pick up where the executive branch left off.

“We have to accelerate our efforts to reduce carbon pollution in the state of Washington in the upcoming years and that’s necessary because the federal government now is going to be, frankly, much less effective in restraining pollution, which means more of that burden is going to be on our shoulders,” said Inslee. “And we are willing to accept that because Washington State is not going to allow climate change to swallow our state.”

Inslee did not clarify what he plans to do in light of the ruling. However, California Governor  (D) took a more direct approach by announcing on Twitter that he will be signing a $54 billion climate fighting plan.

“The idea that the US Supreme Court moved to take away one of the most significant and historically powerful tools to address the ravages of climate change is incomprehensible,” asserted Newsom. “We’ve got to wake up to what’s going on, Supreme Court. And we’ve got to double down, quadruple down here in California and in blue states all across America.”

In the meantime, Democrat lawmakers are making a push to pass legislation codifying the EPA’s authority.

Californians who applied for concealed carry permits had their personal information leaked this week and we are learning the leak was larger than initially reported. Here’s some background:

On Monday, the state launched the 2022 Firearms Dashboard Portal, while suggesting its aim is to improve transparency and information sharing for gun-related data.

Then on Tuesday, Fresno County Sheriff’s Office said this new portal was breached, which resulted in the leak of personal information of concealed-carry permit holders.

Then on Wednesday, we leaned the breach was even bigger. It included anyone who applied for a concealed carry permit, approved or denied, from 2011 to 20-21.

Historic rulings define latest Supreme Court term

The Supreme Court issued its final ruling of the term, wrapping up a historic session packed with several prominent rulings. In a five to four decision Thursday, the nation’s highest court ruled the Biden administration can terminate the Trump-era Remain in Mexico policy. The high court found the administration’s push to end the policy did not violate federal immigration law.

Justices John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh sided with the court’s liberal justices in the ruling. The policy, first enacted in 2019, required asylum seekers to stay in Mexico while their claims were processed in court. Thursday’s decision now paves the way for Biden to go through with ending the policy. Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) has called on the Biden administration to reinstate Trump-era policies, while asserting they have proved to be effective.

“Building a border wall, keeping in place both Title 42 and the Remain in Mexico policy and enforcing those,” Abbott stated. “So, those policies remain in effect right now. However, it is my understanding that the way we see it, Biden is not enforcing those. Ending catch and release. Those are the four things that are very simple to do.”

Earlier, the Supreme Court sided with Joseph Kennedy, a former high school football coach in Washington State, who was let go for publicly praying on the field after games. In the court’s opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained that both the free exercise and free speech clauses of the First Amendment protect expressions like Mr. Kennedy’s.

“It’s not for the Christians or the Jews, or the atheists or whoever,” said Kennedy. “It is for all Americans and that’s why I thought this was such a huge win. It’s more a freedom of speech thing for me personally because it was just a moment between me and God. It had nothing to do with anybody else.”

Additionally, the Supreme Court issued a ruling limiting the federal government’s authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. In a six-to-three decision, the court ruled the EPA cannot pass sweeping carbon dioxide emissions regulations without congressional approval. This is a victory for West Virginia and a number of other GOP-led states that challenged the EPA while arguing the Clean Air Act did not give the agency power to impose such broad regulations.

The ruling could have far reaching ramifications as it may curb the Biden administrations capability to promote green energy through regulations on carbon dioxide emissions. West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey responded to the Supreme Courts decision and thanked all the states that were part of the process.

Alos, the Supreme Court welcomed Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson Thursday as she was sworn in as the first black woman to serve on the nations highest court. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer officially stepped down from the bench after a 28-year career. Jackson is slated to participate in arguments for the first time during the court’s next term beginning in October.

Biden: We’ll stick with Ukraine for ‘as long as it takes’

President Joe Biden reaffirmed America’s commitment to help Ukraine combat Russia’s invasion. He pledged another $800 million in security assistance to Ukraine. While wrapping up the NATO summit in Madrid on Thursday, Biden said the new package includes more ammunition and artillery and advanced air defense systems.

“The war could end tomorrow, by the way, if Russia stops its irrational behavior,” stated the President. “So, you know, when the war will end, you know I hope it ends sooner than later, but for it to end they have to be in a position where…the the Ukrainians have all that they can reasonably expect. We can reasonably expect to get to them in order to provide for provide for their physical security and their defenses.”

This came after Biden shared a phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan while on his way to the summit in which he urged him to sign off on Finland and Sweden joining the NATO alliance.

Leaders strengthened defense along the eastern flank as Biden announced a boost of US military presence in Europe in response to Russian threats. This includes adding a permanent army headquarters in Poland, sending new warships to Spain fighter jet squadrons to Britain and deploying additional troops to Romania as well as increasing rotational deployments in the Baltic states.

Biden assured the transatlantic alliance is stronger than ever before, but continued to blame Russia’s war on Ukraine for America’s rampant inflation.

“But the bottom line is ultimately the reason why gas prices are up is because of Russia, Russia, Russia, Russia,” said the President. “The reason why the food crisis exists is because of Russia. Russia not allowing grain to get out of Ukraine and so, that’s the that’s the way in which I think we should move. And I think it will have a positive impact on the price at the pump as well.”

In the meantime, as Biden returns to the White House, he’s scheduled to head to Saudi Arabia next month. While sending Americans into further turmoil, Biden said he will not directly ask the Saudi government to increase oil production, which could bring down the global price of energy.
