    he outgoing National Security Council chief, Dr. Eyal Hulta called out the international community's inaction regarding the protests in Iran, Israel Hayom reported. "Many speakers stated on this stage 'enough'. Enough with the failing nuclear talks in Viena, while they are advancing their nuclear program. Enough with Iran's manipulation and its ignoring of supervisors from the atomic energy board. Enough with closing our eyes while they smuggle arms to terrorists in the area and enough with the hope that this corrupt regime will act nicely. Even the people of Iran say 'enough'," stated Hulta at an international INSS conference in...

    The Taliban claimed it 'tried its best' to keep areas open to women ... The Taliban will ban women from using gyms and entering parks due to issues with citizens not adhering to gender segregation and headscarf rules. "Unfortunately, the orders were not obeyed and the rules were violated, and we had to close parks and gyms for women," Mohammed Akef Mohajer, spokesman for the Afghan Ministry of Virtue and Vice, said. "In most cases, we have seen both men and women together in parks and, unfortunately, the hijab was not observed." "So we had to come up with another...
  • Taliban orders Afghan women to wear all-covering burkas in public

    The Taliban has ordered Afghan women to wear burkas in public. The burka, which covers the wearer from head to toe and leaves only a person’s eyes exposed, became the group’s staple order on women in Afghanistan during its first reign of terror, between 1996 and 2001. The decision to re-introduce the garment serves as a chilling echo of the drastic restrictions Afghan women are once again facing under the Taliban’s control. If women have no important work outside the home, they should stay at home, the group also declared. Refusal to comply with the order can result in a...

    VIDEO AT LINK............... Two activists interrupted the first game of the NFL season Thursday night in an apparent protest against the arrest of two animal rights advocates who were charged in 2017 for “rescuing” piglets from a factory farm. Katia Shokrai and Emek Echo, two activists with Direct Action Everywhere, stormed the field during the football game as the Buffalo Bills faced the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium in California. The pair ran across the field with smoke flares in their hands before being tackled by security guards. The activists were protesting the arrest of two of the group’s...

    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke declared that women would win back their right to kill unborn children. In Texas, a trigger law that will toughen the penalty on those involved in an illegal abortion is set to begin on Thursday. O’Rourke noted that women of Texas were involved in the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that was used to legalize abortions and predicted the women of Texas would “win it back in 2022.”

    VANITY ^ | 6/27/2022 | unlearner
    Several recent Supreme Court decisions have been favorable to conservatives: abortion, gun rights, and religious liberty. Simultaneously, we have uni-partisan gun-control legislation that just became law. It encourages states with financial incentives to enact red flag laws to supposedly help prevent people with mental illness from unsafely accessing guns. While the Constitutionality of such laws is questionable at best, I suggest perhaps making lemonade out of lemons. Anyone who participates in mob attacks on churches and pro-lifers needs to be red-flagged. They are proving they are not mentally stable enough to use guns responsibly.

    An abortion rights group is suing the state of Mississippi over its abortion laws. The Center for Reproductive Rights alleges in a 59-page lawsuit that the state has been conducting a “25-year legislative campaign to eliminate women’s constitutional right to access abortion.” The group filed the suit following a new state law banning abortions after 15 weeks, the most restrictive abortion ban in the country, which the group argues is “unconstitutional.” ... The lawsuit filed Monday is also on behalf of the clinic, the Jackson Women’s Health Organization. It challenges several of the state’s abortion laws, including the new 15-week...

    On the day a crazed killer murdered 19 children and two teachers at an Uvalde, Texas elementary school, an ironically-timed Rasmussen poll revealed 50 percent of likely voters “don’t think stricter gun control would help” prevent mass shootings, while anti-gunners including Joe Biden quickly exploited the horrific crime to push for more gun restrictions. In reaction to the shooting, two of the nation’s largest gun rights organizations issued a joint statement, challenging the Biden administration to stop “demonizing” gun owners and manufacturers and “bring them to the table and benefit from their knowledge.”

I think there’s a larger issue at stake right now. I think Americans are in denial exactly about what this Republican Party is planning to do. They would like to overturn voting rights. They would like to overturn gay rights. They are in the process of overturning women’s rights.

    Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that if the Supreme Court overturned the Roe. v. Wade decision, “LGBTQ+ equality” is in danger. Gillibrand said, “The argument that if we take away the filibuster, Mitch McConnell and Republicans across the country are going to do bad things. Those bad things are literally already happening. We have a Supreme Court that is unrelated to the normal process of the American people. When those Supreme Court justices say that precedent is the foundation of our legal system and said Roe v. Wade is precedent that’s entitled to...

    After a draft Supreme Court opinion seeking to overturn Roe v. Wade, which has protected the constitutional right to abortion for nearly five decades, was leaked this week, activists said they began to worry that other landmark rulings – on which modern LGBTQ+ rights hinge – may be targeted next. Protections stemming from cases like Lawrence v. Texas, which invalidated discriminatory sodomy laws, and Obergefell v. Hobbs, which legalized same-sex marriage in the U.S., will not immediately disappear with the overturning of Roe, but they may be weakened.

    What are “Negative Rights”? We all have rights as human beings in the United States. We have the right to attend school, go to college, work to obtain money, own property, and defend ourselves, but where do these rights start to infringe on others’ freedom? Negative rights define our freedoms and our right to have something without interference from outside forces. To define negative rights in the simplest manner, it’s one person’s right not to have another person interfere with their own liberties.

We’ll explain what they are and some of the fundamental issues that many people have with this ideology. Positive Rights Definition A positive right is one that requires others (namely the government) to provide you with either a good or service. They do so by taking away another individuals’ rights.

    A New York Times column suggested Monday that Judge Kimball Mizelle's decision to block the government mask mandate for transportation could "undermine the federal government's authority." Co-authors Lawrence Gostin, a professor of global health law at Georgetown Law and the faculty director of the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, and writer and civil rights lawyer Duncan Hosie, wrote in the column that Trump-appointed judges are using the pandemic health regulations to "dismantle the national government's legal authority to solve problems." ....
