  • Biden falsely says abortion ruling makes US 'outlier among developed nations'

    President Biden remarked Friday that the Supreme Court's decision overturning Roe v. Wade made the U.S. an "outlier" in the West. However, European nations largely have abortion laws that resemble regulations supported by many Republican-led state governments "Upholding laws restricting abortion on demand after 20 weeks would situate the United States closer to the international mainstream, instead of leaving it as an outlying country with ultra-permissive abortion policies," the Charlotte Lozier Institute, a pro-life group, stated in 2014. The report noted that the list of nations where abortion is legal past 20 weeks included North Korea, China and Vietnam.

    June 24, 2022. At the close of business today, and in light of the Bruen decision, the New Jersey Attorney General issued a directive to law enforcement agencies and prosecutors mandating that NJ carry permit applications now be processed WITHOUT an applicant having to prove "justifiable need."

    Feeling irrationally angry after an argument with his wife in 2015, the police were called on firearm owner Edward Caniglia to perform a welfare check. He agreed to undergo a psychiatric evaluation at the hospital to determine suicidality on the condition that police not confiscate his guns. Upon returning to his home, however, Caniglia found that the police had unconstitutionally searched his house and seized his firearms. For the first time in 13 years, the Court upheld both privacy and gun rights, this time unanimously. Caniglia v. Strom’s 9-0 decision has the potential to create lasting effects and set precedent...

    Roughly 60,000 Army Reserve and National Guard soldiers remain unvaccinated against the coronavirus a week before the service’s deadline, according to Army data, highlighting the persistent struggle for commanders to bring soldiers under compliance. Soldiers in the Army Reserve and Army National Guard were given until this coming Thursday to receive the vaccine, seek an exemption or face punishment, including removal from the service. The deadline, set last year, is about seven months longer than any other service member in the U.S. military, allowing commanders extra time to ensure their soldiers followed an order from Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. Army...

    Communist/socialist-inspired groups have been quickly winning converts and taking control of the Democratic Party, at both the national and local levels. Four U.S. communist groups have formed an alliance to take over the Democratic Party at every level. With a combined membership of more than 65,000 and significant financial backing from unions, foundations, and even some churches, the plan is credible and is already well under way. Three of the four groups involved — Communist Party USA (CPUSA), Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS), and Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) — are loyal to Beijing, while the fourth...

    Democrats in Colorado are employing a novel strategy as they seek to oust controversial Republican Lauren Boebert from her deep-red congressional seat. "Claudia Cunningham had never voted for a Republican in her life. She swore she couldn’t or her father would roll over in his grave. But ahead of the Colorado primary on Tuesday, she did the once-unthinkable: registered as unaffiliated so that she could vote in the G.O.P. primary against her congresswoman, Lauren Boebert," The New York Times reported Wednesday. "So did Ward Hauenstein, the mayor pro tem of Aspen; Sara Sanderman, a teacher from Glenwood Springs; Christopher Arndt,...

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced an annual holiday in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on Friday, Newsmax reported. “SCOTUS just overruled Roe & Casey, ending one of the most morally & legally corrupt eras in US history. Praise the Lord,” Paxton wrote in a social media post. “Abortion is now illegal in Texas. And today I’m closing my office—and making it an annual holiday—as a memorial to the 70 million lives lost bc of abortion,” he concluded:

    With the U.S. Supreme Court having overturned Roe v. Wade Friday, its landmark and controversial 1973 decision that established a core federal right to have an abortion, Pennsylvania’s governor’s race would seem to be a perfect referendum on the question - if, that is, there weren’t so many other issues. In this corner, you have Republican nominee Doug Mastriano, a state Senator from Franklin County who supports rolling back of Pennsylvania’s current abortion law to at least the so-called heartbeat threshold, which medical authorities have said essentially means a ban on abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy. Mastriano has...

    Federal raids this week, along with an inappropriate statement about a SCOTUS ruling, underscore the weaponization of the DOJ under Garland.It’s become painfully obvious over the past year that the Justice Department under Attorney General Merrick Garland has been weaponized and politicized to the point that it represents an active threat to the rule of law and the separation of powers. It’s not too much to say that Garland’s DOJ has become a threat to the republic. Just take this past week. On Thursday, following an historic 6-3 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down a New York law for...

    News analysis Pfizer and Moderna have a problem. Their mRNA COVID-19 shots do not stop infection, transmission, hospitalization, nor death from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Over half a billion doses have been injected into Americans in the past 17 months and these shots have made no discernible impact on the course of the pandemic. Far more Americans have died of coronavirus since the introduction of the shots than before they were introduced. Pfizer and Moderna are making about $50 billion a year on these shots and they want that to continue. So they need to reformulate. Maybe target a new variant,...

    The end of Roe v. Wade is perhaps the greatest political and cultural event in a generation. It will change American politics forever, and — what’s more important — it will save the lives of countless unborn children. The Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs is a great victory for the U.S. Constitution, for the American people, and for justice and truth and the common good. It is also a turning point. We should now expect Democrats and the left to call more explicitly for violence, initially against places like crisis pregnancy centers and Catholic churches, as we have already seen,...

    n a 6-3 decision reflecting the sharp partisan divide on the nation’s highest court, the Supreme Court struck down New York’s century old gun law against conceal carry on Thursday. New Yorkers and residents of a handful of other states and Washington D.C.—which had more strictly regulated who can have a conceal-carry permit—must now accept the type of laws popular in Texas and other red states. The decision was hardly a surprise to court watchers, but the opinion is nonetheless troubling on many levels. The fact that this opinion was written by Justice Clarence Thomas, an originalist so rigid in...

Video above: Wolf vows to protect abortion access ahead of court's decision Here is the governor's full statement: "First and most importantly, it is critical that everyone understands that abortion services are available and unharmed in Pennsylvania by today’s Supreme Court action. Providers may still provide reproductive health care services and patients should continue the health care plan they’ve developed with their physicians. "Nonetheless, I am deeply disappointed in today’s Supreme Court opinion and the impact this decision will...

    As news of the Supreme Court's decision to end constitutional protections for abortion spread Friday morning, many in Southern California responded with a simple question: Where do we protest? The overturning of the landmark 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision will not hinder reproductive health access in California, where abortion will continue to be protected under state law. But the landscape on the ground will look painfully different in other parts of the country. The first Los Angeles crowds began to gather around noon outside a federal courthouse downtown . Standing with the growing crowd, Francisca Romero, a 25-year-old actress originally...

Jackson Women’s Health Organization or some future decision, the United States Supreme Court substantially expands states’ authority to legislate regarding abortion by overturning Roe v. Wade. “For decades, National Right to Life and its state affiliates have led the effort to pass life-affirming laws at the state level that protect unborn...

    In the absence of a serious foreign policy and an economic plan not involving massive tariffs – and in the absence of a rational and decent candidate – pro-Trump advocates have fallen back on one argument and one argument only: he’ll be better for the Supreme Court. --- Hillary’s justices will cripple Constitutional interpretation on religious freedom, gun rights, and freedom of speech, among other crucial issues. --- There is only one problem: there is no shot – zero shot – that Trump will appoint a conservative.
