1 – Date set for Ketanji Brown Jackson to be formally sworn in as Supreme Court justice
The Hill reports: Ketanji Brown Jackson will be sworn in Thursday to formally become a Supreme Court justice, officially making her the nation’s first Black woman to serve in the role.
She will fill the seat being vacated by the retiring Justice Stephen Breyer, 83, whose previously announced departure after nearly 28 years on the bench will take effect Thursday at noon.
Jackson is expected to join Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan in forming a three-member liberal minority on the court, a role previously filled by Breyer, for whom Jackson once clerked.
At 51, Jackson’s replacement of Breyer adds youth and diversity, and on certain issues a likely more liberal approach than Breyer, known for his judicial modesty and pragmatism.
Just in: Ketanji Brown Jackson will be sworn in tomorrow at noon as the newest Supreme Court justice, replacing Stephen Breyer. She will become the first Black woman ever to serve on the high court. https://t.co/NFzGnfc1xo pic.twitter.com/5vcA3McAn4

MY TAKE: This is bad, but THANK GOD Trump won in 2016 and appointed 3 conservative justices. Trump SAVED our Supreme Court. Just imagine if Hillary had won, and who she would’ve appointed.
2 – California school board member calls to ‘boycott’ July 4th
Fox News reports: A California school board member is calling for an Independence Day boycott after the Supreme Court’s decision last week to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Anamarie Avila Farias, a member of the Contra Costa County Board of Education, posted an image Tuesday on Facebook that declared, “BOYCOTT 4TH OF JULY.”
“I haven’t celebrated 4th of July since 2016 and I don’t think it’s a holiday to celebrate,” Avila Farias wrote. “What do you think?”
“I am not feeling particularly patriotic,” Avila Farias explained. “I am especially not interested in celebrating a holiday centered around freedom from oppressive government when that freedom is not a reality for so many people in this country.

MY TAKE: Appalling! People like this have no business being on the school board.
3 – Kamala Harris says she’s with Biden ‘if’ he runs, stoking fresh 2024 uncertainty
The New York Post reports: Vice President Kamala Harris triggered new questions Wednesday about President Biden’s 2024 election plans — saying she wanted to walk back a remark indicating that Biden had already decided to run for a second term.
“The president intends to run and if he does, I will be his ticket-mate,” Harris told reporters on Air Force Two en route to San Francisco. “We will run together.”
According to a pool report from Erin Logan of the Los Angeles Times, “The White House said [Harris] wanted to clarify comments she made on CNN a few days ago.”
In the CNN appearance, which took place Monday, Harris declared emphatically that she and Biden are a package deal for Democrats.
“Joe Biden is running for re-election and I will be his ticket-mate,” the veep told host Dana Bash.
Biden, who turns 80 this year, reportedly has been annoyed by recent speculation that he might not seek a second term — making Harris’ walk-back turn heads in Washington.
On Monday, Kamala Harris said, “Biden is running for reelection, and I will be his ticket mate. Full stop.”
Today she clarified her statement to say Biden “intends to run” for reelection.

MY TAKE: I think she’s lying through her teeth. Biden is a disaster, and all Dems know it.
SPECIAL VIDEO OF THE DAY: Here’s a little something to make you laugh. After the wild and bizarre testimony by former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson at the January 6 Committee hearing on Tuesday, in which she claimed Trump assaulted his limo driver and grabbed the wheel (the limo driver says it didn’t happen) someone created this parody video – it’s hilarious!! Enjoy!
OH NO! THEY RELEASED THE TAPE!!!😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/hgI6ITRmZs
