7 Things: Chaos in Biden campaign as Jill and Hunter take control, Montgomery DA blames Legislature for crime issues; and more …

7. Tractor Supply Co. announced cuts to its Diversity Equity, and Inclusion positions, withdrew its carbon-emissions goals, stopped submitting data to the Human Rights Campaign, ended sponsorship of Pride festivals and voting initiatives in response to conservative pressure. This obviously led to conservative activists celebrating the changes, and LGBTQ+ organizations and advocacy groups to cry foul.

6. Three attorneys involved in a lawsuit against Alabama’s Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act apologized to U.S. District Judge Liles Burke for allegedly attempting to manipulate the judicial process by dismissing and refiling their case to avoid Burke. Judge Burke questioned 11 attorneys over three days about their actions during their attempt to overturn a law prohibiting transgender surgeries and treatments for minors. Despite admitting their motivations, the attorneys claimed procedural confusion and defended their right to dismiss cases under federal rules.

5. The Biden administration has retracted its support for gender-affirming surgeries for minors following revelations that Admiral Rachel Levine influenced the World Professional Association for Transgender Health to remove age limits in its guidelines. The administration still supports other forms of gender-affirming care but opposes surgeries for minors due to their irreversible nature. This stance comes amid controversy and criticism regarding the appropriateness and scientific backing of such treatments for young individuals.

4. More crime in Birmingham and more excuses in Montgomery as the two crime-infested cities seem to be more interested in excuses than addressing their problems head-on. Montgomery County District Attorney Daryl Bailey addressed the city’s rise in violent crime, attributing it to lack of parental involvement, inadequate legislative action on gun laws, and the need for stricter sentencing by judges, which makes no sense because most of these issues affect more than just these two cities.

3. Now that the disaster that was President Joe Biden’s debate performance has set in, the media and their Democrats are attempting to find a way to frame the debate as something other than the trainwreck it is. Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is suggesting, without evidence, that former President Donald Trump has dementia and the Philadelphia Inquirer is calling on Trump to quit his campaign after multiple papers called for Biden to step down.

2. The Biden campaign is trying soothe their core supporters ahead of a week that is sure to be filled with more calls for President Joe Biden to walk way from his re-election campaign by showing that their campaign is the least screwed of all Democrat campaigns and calling everyone calling for a new candidate part of the “bedwetting brigade.” Whether it is Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Govs. Gavin Newsom (California), Gretchen Whitmer (Michigan) or Josh Shapiro (Pennsylvania), U.S. Sens. Corey Booker (D-N.J.) or Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), or Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, they are all getting beaten by former President Donald Trump.

1. Somehow, former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly has received a scoop that President Joe Biden is preparing to end the campaign and that his team is trying to work out the exit ramp. Meanwhile, other reports show that President Biden met with family to see if they can find a path forward to stay in the race with crackhead art-dealing international businessman Hunter Biden and elder-abusing screecher Jill Biden being the biggest advocates for another Biden campaign, which is no surprise.
