    “We have to make sure — this will sound political but we have to make sure that the Constitution wins the next presidential election,” Pelosi said at an event at Cornell University’s Institute of Politics & Global Affairs. “We can’t be worrying about well, how long is this going to take? Well, that will take as long as it does. And we will press the case so that in the court of public opinion. People will know what is — is right. But we cannot accept a second term for Donald Trump if we are going to be faithful to...

    State has 14 days to ask full 5th Circuit to hear caseTexas Right to Life responded yesterday to the 2-1 decision: The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled against the Texas Dismemberment Abortion Ban, upholding the district court ruling that blocked enforcement of the Pro-Life law. After a three-year wait, the decision by the three-judge panel is disappointing and demonstrates the need for judges who follow the strictest interpretation of the Constitution. However, Texas must continue the legal battle to force a federal circuit court split, pressuring the Supreme Court of the United States to evaluate...

    Now the Admin Mods may Zot me or not, but if my words are heard by just one of my FRiends it will have been worthwhile. The stock and trade of the Democrat party is to convince each other that they are smarter than you, or I. This at the core of their beliefs: they are, in their minds, simply smarter. More enlightened. Naturally, they say, a baby should wince and scream, silently, in pain, as the scissors penetrate the neck. This is the celebration of womanhood for so many sad, single lesbians and their cats. Grades in school, of...

    President Donald Trump attended a high energy church service Sunday morning at the International Church of Las Vegas, where he pulled out eight bills - which looked to be $20s - to add to the collection plate. The service was part concert, part prayer session and even part rally, as the church's pastor Paul Marc Goulet, ticked off a list of Trump's accomplishments. 'He gave the church back a voice,' Goulet said. 'He's given a voice to the unborn,' the pastor added, earning Trump loud cheers and a partial standing ovation from the crowd.

    Less than three weeks out from the Nov. 3 presidential election, during an interview with the Cap Times, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren touted the importance of Democratic candidate Joe Biden winning Wisconsin and the White House in a high-stakes election where "lives are on the line." The Massachusetts Democrat played up the stakes in this battleground state in Democrats' effort to oust President Donald Trump, describing it to attendees at a Madison drive-in get-out-the-vote event Saturday as one that lies "at the intersection" of this election. Slamming Republicans for “trying to steal a Supreme Court seat” ahead of the election...

  • Bill Maher is slammed for saying that Democrats SHOULD make an issue of Amy Coney Barrett's Catholicism 'because being nuts is relevant'

    Commentator Bill Maher has drawn backlash after calling Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett 'nuts' and arguing that Senate Democrats should make an issue of her Catholic faith. 'Chuck Schumer said Democrats won't make Barrett's religion an issue, but they should because being nuts is relevant,' Maher said in a monologue on HBO's Real Time on Friday. After hearings this week, the Senate Judiciary Committee set October 22 for its vote to recommend Barrett´s nomination to the full Senate, with a final confirmation vote expected by month´s end.

    Here’s a LinkedIn profile I’d like to see: In a fantasy world where everyone is obligated to tell the truth, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel’s top-of-the-page summary would read, “Professional medical ethicist. Served two American presidents by crafting intellectual framework and persuasive moral arguments in service of world-changing health care policy. Will craft bioethical philosophy and matching rhetoric to suit your needs!”Emanuel, who some might remember from 2009 as a chief salesman for President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, is back in the spotlight again with tuned-up public health priorities and a new Democratic politician to serve. In this round of...

    New York Times economist Paul Krugman is at it again. He’s promoting a conspiracy theory that libertarian billionaire Charles Koch wants U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett to — wait for it — destroy the planet. Sounds like Krugman may have been watching too much Star Wars. Promoting a Times article headlined, “Charles Koch’s Big Bet on Barrett,” Krugman tweeted: “This analysis got somewhat lost in the shuffle, but Charles Koch is going big for Barrett — not bc he hopes she'll destroy Roe or the ACA, but because he hopes she'll destroy the planet.”

    Democrats can't character-assault Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett the way they did Brett Kavanaugh, so they're screaming bloody murder that Barrett will kill millions of Americans in the event she rules against Obamacare.  According to Rich Lowry, writing in the New York Post: Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin says that this is her "assignment." Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse from Rhode Island says that she is a "judicial torpedo" aimed at the Affordable Care Act. President Trump admitted a vote for Judge Barrett is a vote to take away health care and pre-existing condition protections for millions of Americans. https://t.co/kdKIkbEwy8— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) September 27,...

    National Review ^ | 10/12/2020 | dan mclaughlin
    Should Amy Coney Barrett recuse herself from California v. Texas, the case challenging Obamacare? Chuck Schumer has called for it: video Schumer argues that Barrett has “clearly said she’d strike down the Affordable Care Act” and has “serious conflicts of interest” regarding the ACA. On the former point, as I have detailed at length, while Barrett in her academic writing has indicated her disagreement with the 2012 NFIB decision upholding the individual mandate as an exercise of the taxing power, she did not give a view on whether she agreed with Justice Antonin Scalia that the whole law should be...

    A broad coalition of lawmakers, public interest groups, and grassroots citizens rallied behind Amy Coney Barrett in her first day of hearings today for confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. According to senators on the Judiciary Committee evaluating her nomination, Barrett handled the first day of hearings with grace, humility, and tenacity. “[Barrett] acknowledged the fact that so much of what the Democrats said today was bunk, and she did it with a smile, and she did it without having to use the word jackwagon or anything close to it,” Sen. Mike Lee of Utah said. “She did it by...

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is reportedly considering making Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo his attorney general if elected president, Axios reported Sunday. Cuomo chairs the National Governors Association, where aides have reportedly started looking at potential replacements for Cuomo if Biden is elected, Axios reported. Democratic donors said Biden and Como’s history of friendship would factor into his consideration for the appointment, the outlet noted. However, Cuomo’s office said he has no interest in serving in a cabinet position, Axios reported. “100% he’s made zero outreach, has had zero conversations about this and has made his desire to...

Leahy also accused Barrett of hurting women and gays. Again, she is not even on the court yet! And for some reason he brought out a photo of Smokey the Bear… So is Amy Comey Barrett an arsonist, too?

    The DO ^ | October 7, 2020 | Rose Raymond
    Last week, when President Donald Trump reported his COVID-19 diagnosis and was subsequently hospitalized, White House Physician and Navy physician Sean Conley, DO, provided the press with updates on the president’s illness and treatment. The ensuing media spotlight on Dr. Conley resulted in unfortunate mischaracterizations of DOs that appeared, among other outlets, on CNN and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show. Maddow questioned why President Trump’s care is overseen by an “osteopath” rather than an infectious disease specialist or an internist. CNN pundit Gloria Borger implied that, as an “osteopath,” Dr. Conley is not an “actual doctor.” To set the record straight,...

    Many young people are leaving the Church today because Christianity has become too judgmental and alienating for them, said lifelong Methodist and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Clinton made the comment while interviewing social justice advocate and Pastor William J. Barber II of Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro, North Carolina, last week on her “You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton” podcast. During the podcast, she argued that "black lives matter" is a “theological statement.” The Church in America, she suggested, needs to “take a hard look at itself and try to figure out how it can be a...

By Cardinal Blase CupichThe Lakota phrase mitakuye oyasin is often used at the end of a speech by an elder. It simply means, “we are all related, we are all relatives.” It expresses an understanding of human existence as belonging to a people who share a common heritage and destiny. And, in stark contrast to radical individualism, it reminds tribal...

    (CN) — In an effort to pull Christian voters away from President Trump, Joe Biden launched a new ad campaign Thursday tailored around the former vice president’s Catholic faith and values. “In a stark contrast to Donald Trump, who tear gassed protesters to pose for a photo op with a Bible in front of a church, the ads depict how Biden’s faith is deeply connected to his life story and commitment to public service and illustrates why Biden is the clear moral choice in this election,” the Biden team said of the rollout, making reference to the president’s controversial June...

    The COVID panic gripped the country for months, inspiring Americans to hide in their homes. But very quickly, we saw how fear and hysteria destroyed our country. The economy took a nosedive, with many deadly, unintended consequences. Yet today, many months later, some Democrats want to prolonged and increase their lockdowns. Now, thousands of medical and public health experts are demanding an end to this nonsense once and for all.[snip] But despite the fact the time has long passed for every state to reopen, dictators like Andrew Cuomo of New York and Gavin Newsom of California continue their abuse policy...
