  • Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he’ll sue — somebody — if SCOTUS moves to roll back Roe v. Wade

    Never let a “crisis” go to waste, huh? It was less than one month ago when New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that he intended to file a multi-agency suit against the Trump administration for “violating the Constitutional rights of immigrant children and their families who have been separated at the border.” We have no idea if that ever panned out, but now that we’ve moved on to Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement and Chicken Little squawking about SCOTUS reversing Roe v. Wade (and maybe banning contraception too), it looks like Cuomo’s readying another lawsuit against … the Supreme Court? We’re...
  • Eternal Life Is Evidenced by Righteous Living...themes 1 John pt 9

    Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says he'll sue if the Supreme Court rolls back Roe v. Wade. Gov. Cuomo has been calling on lawmakers to increase protections in New York. "We never passed the New York State law because we relied on Roe v. Wade and everyone assumed it would always be there," Gov. Cuomo said. During the 2016 election, Donald Trump regularly stated that he would only appoint judges to the Supreme Court that would overturn the ruling.

    Ohio Senate candidate Rep. Jim Renacci pledged he would serve only two terms if he beats Democratic incumbent Sen. Sherrod Brown. Renacci signed a pledge in Cincinnati saying he would limit himself to two terms and tweeted a photo of himself. “I’m a small biz owner, not a career politician like Brown. That’s why I’m pledging to the people of Ohio to serve no more than 2 Senate terms,” he said.

    WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday. Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide. But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) held a joint call Tuesday to announce their efforts to comply with a June 26 federal court ruling mandating children under five years old in HHS custody be “reunited” with parents if they were separated at the border. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, in response to an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawsuit, set a July 10 deadline to reunite the families and refused to provide additional time for the government to use DNA testing to determine if the people in question are even the 102...

    An engineer who worked on Apple’s secretive autonomous car project allegedly stole trade secrets for a Chinese car startup backed by Alibaba, according to new charges filed by the FBI. Xiaolang Zhang, who worked for Apple from December 2015 until May 2018, has been charged in federal court with stealing trade secrets, and faces 10 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. Zhang was arrested trying to leave the country this past weekend. The news was first reported by The Mercury News. “Apple takes confidentiality and the protection of our intellectual property very seriously,” a spokesperson for the company said in...

    A Democratic candidate for a seat in the California state assembly blames Israel for committing genocide against the Palestinians and has offered her support for anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Maria Estrada, a candidate for California’s District 63 representing the southeast suburbs of Los Angeles, garnered the second most votes, some 28 percent, in a top-two primary on June 5 for the November election. She will run against incumbent and fellow Democrat Anthony Rendon, who also serves as Speaker of the California State Assembly. In an op-ed published in the Los Angeles Jewish Journal, Rabbi Abraham Cooper and...

    It is well-established in psychology that people who purposely hurt others loathe themselves. In the past few months, angry Democrats have attacked notable Republicans in public venues, just for being Republicans. An irate mob accosted Pam Bondi, attorney general of Florida, at a Tampa, Florida, movie theater, professing to be “outraged” about her stances on healthcare and immigration. Another mob of thugs from the Democratic Socialists of America screamed “shame” at Kirstjen Nielsen, secretary of homeland security, while she was dining at a Mexican restaurant in Washington, D.C. They were feigning anger about immigration problems at the Mexican border and...

    n a major story that came and went, President Obama shut down a major drug operation run by Hezb'allah because he didn't want to upset Iran's mullahs and endanger his Iran deal. Seems the Iran deal was considerably more important to his "legacy" than any concern about drug-dealing, the opioid epidemic, or just the idea of putting terrorists who finance themselves through the global drug trade out of business. Politico did the story about how Obama shut down Project Cassandra, so it should have gotten attention, yet it didn't. The whole thing recalls something security expert Rachel Ehrenfeld memorably told...

    “On the way to Sevastopol, not too far from Simferopol,” begins what is probably the most famous Yiddish song from the Soviet Union, “Hey Dzhankoye.” Jews have been living in the peninsula since ancient times, largely divided into two communities: the Krymchaks, who followed rabbinical Judaism, and the Karaites, who rejected the Oral Torah. Soon after Catherine the Great conquered the region from the Ottoman Empire in 1783, she opened it up to Jewish settlement, hoping that the Jews would serve as a bulwark against the Turks. Although Jews were later barred from living in the major cities, the peninsula...

  • Once Militantly Anti-Abortion, Evangelical Minister Now Lives 'With Regret' (don't laugh, it's NPR)

    Evangelical minister Rob Schenck was once a militant leader of the anti-abortion movement, blockading access to clinics to prevent doctors and patients from entering. But after more than 20 years in the movement, Schenck experienced a change of heart. Though firm in his evangelicalism, he has disavowed his militant anti-abortion stance. "I live with regret," he says of some of his former tactics. "I remember women — some of them quite young — being very distraught, very frightened, some very angry. Over time I became very callous to that." Schenck now sees abortion as a moral and ethical issue that...

    "Make Peace Great Again" organizers were expecting a few thousand protestors to for President Trump's visit, but only a couple dozen showed up. Euro News’ Damon Embling reported that organizers were expecting a few thousand people to attend the protest, but just a few dozen turned out. The protesters were rallying around the slogan “Make Peace Great Again,” a play on Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.” Embling asked one of the organizers why only a couple dozen demonstrators showed up at the protest. “I think it’s, what went wrong is not the good question to ask,” the...

    The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is blistering at a proposed regulation that would prevent the union from siphoning fees from American workers’ Medicaid payments. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced a proposed rule Tuesday that would require Medicaid payments to go directly to healthcare workers, ending a 2014 Obama-era rule that let third parties, such as unions and insurance companies, skim off a share of the paycheck before the worker saw any of it. The SEIU, one of the largest public-sector unions in the U.S., referred to the proposed rule “as part of the [Trump] administration’s broad,...

    Patriots in the Heartland are furious after the University of Kansas raised a defaced American flag on campus. And it was intentional. The flag, defaced with what looks like black paints and the incongruous image of a sock, is part of an art installation hosted by the Spencer Museum of Art called, “Pledges of Allegiance.” One of my readers passed along photos of the red, white, blue and black flag flapping in the breeze. And like any right-thinking, red-blooded American patriot he was enraged. “I’m ashamed to be a Jayhawk,” he told me. “Wake up, America.” The defaced and desecrated...
