    All four members of “The Squad” come from deep blue districts that normally are safe seats for Democrats. But Rep. Ilhan Omar, who represents the city of Minneapolis and a few inner ring suburbs, is now caught in a scandal that threatens to alienate her biggest voting bloc base, fellow Muslim Somalis, who emigrated to Minnesota by the tens of thousands at the behest of the  State Department that thought the generous welfare benefits of the North Star State could well be spent on people from a tropical climate transplanted to the coldest metropolis in the country.

    State senators on Tuesday removed exceptions for rape and incest from a bill that bans abortions roughly six weeks after conception, potentially setting up a conflict with the House, which approved the exceptions earlier this year after contentious debate. Senators in committee voted 4-3 to strike the exceptions, as proposed by Sen. Richard Cash, R-Powdersville, the chambers most ardent abortion foe. Another 4-3 vote advanced the measure to the full Medical Affairs Committee. The bill, H.3020, would make it illegal to get an abortion in South Carolina after a fetal heartbeat has been detected, which occurs five to eight weeks...

    President Trumps campaign announced Friday it will hold a rallies in Mississippi and Kentucky next month. The Keep America Great rallies take place before crucial gubernatorial races in both states. While both Mississippi and Kentucky are solidly Republican, having backed President Trump by about 19 and 30 points, respectively, in 2016, the races to win the governors mansion are likely closer than the GOP would prefer. The campaign touted Trumps economic accomplishments in its announcements of the Nov. 1 rally in Tupelo, Miss. and the Nov. 4 rally in Lexington, Ky. SNIP

    San Francisco expanded its city-funded travel and contracting bans to 22 states with pro-life laws. The 22 states include Texas, Massachusetts, and Florida. The move marks the expansion of an ordinance enacted in August that prohibited city-funded travel "to states that have enacted laws that prohibit abortion prior to the viability of the fetus" and contracting with companies headquartered in those states. The ban initially covered eight states, according to Courthouse News, but that list has now expanded to cover nearly half the country. City supervisor Vallie Brown denounced pro-life reforms, such as late term abortion limits, as "an assault...

    For the residents of Canton, Mississippi, faith in their elected officials must be at an all-time low. The city has been facing seemingly endless election scandals in the past couple of years. Five local officialsincluding an alderman, the fire chief, and the city clerkhave been convicted of a variety of crimes stemming from their efforts to rig a 2017 municipal election, and can never seek public office again. Its disturbing that so many elected officials, entrusted to represent the people and improve the community, were instead able to corrupt the electoral system in the name of power and personal gain....

    The city council of Jackson, Mississippi voted 3-1 to enact 15-foot buffer zones around all medical facilities, including abortion facilities, where police will also be required to enforce restrictions on noise, such as shouting. Although the buffer zones are supposedly intended to apply to any health facility in the area, there is broad consensus that the law is actually aimed at pro-lifers protesting outside the Jackson Womens Health Organization, the states only abortion facility. Supporters of the law claim it gives women personal space, but opponents point out that such buffer zones are an unconstitutional violation of free speech on...

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The state of Mississippi says a federal court erred in not letting it present evidence about whether a fetus experiences pain. Attorney Paul Barnes addressed the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday about a Mississippi law that would ban most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The state's only abortion clinic sued and U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves blocked the law from taking effect last year, saying it "unequivocally" violates women's constitutional rights because it bans abortion weeks before viability.

    California announced last week that it has added Iowa to the list of states on its ever-expanding travel ban list because of that states new prohibition against funding gender-transition surgeries under Medicaid. The announcement by state Attorney General Xavier Becerra means that as of Oct. 4, California will no longer offer taxpayer-funded trips to Iowa for any public employee or student at a state-run university. Becerras authority came from a 2016 California law signed by then-Gov. Jerry Brown that bars state-funded travel to other states that undercut LGBT rights. The blacklist already included Alabama, Kentucky, North Carolina, Texas, Oklahoma and...
