But, you know, Mark Judson is a very (self-) righteous fella in his defense of killing the unborn and supporting Ukraine, and so much better than you filthy “Christians” who aren’t worthy of more than being Nero’s Torches. Let’s see how they react to this…
BREAKING: SCOTUS RULING
#GOPWarOnWomen is trending … THIS from the same ilk fully supporting “trans” men invading women’s bathrooms/locker rooms & collapsing women’s sports. And calling women “menstruaters’ & “birthing person” while claiming ‘men menstruate and get pregnant’. F the F off.

THE LEFT’S DOMESTIC TERRORISM CAMPAIGN: Troubling calls for Clarence Thomas’ assassination spread across social media after Roe reversed: Threats come after other groups have called for violence to be committed against pro-life groups, individuals and churches.
Let’s keep it simple: American conservatives believe in the Founding Father’s and the Constitution which makes us wholly different than any other country in the history of the world. Liberal’s think it’s an antiquated rag that should be revised constantly based on their feelings.

The reaction to the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health has been predictably vitriolic and often full of distortions. The Justices didn’t ban abortion; they said there is no constitutional right to abortion and left it to the states to decide. The majority also did not set up other rights to disappear; they explicitly said abortion is unique.
Perhaps the most unfortunate claim is that the Justices in the Dobbs majority lied during confirmation hearings. The charge is that they suggested that Roe v. Wade was a precedent that couldn’t be overturned…
The reason is that the first rule of judging is that you can’t pre-judge a case. Judges are limited under Article III of the Constitution to hearing cases and controversies, and that means ruling on facts and law that are specific to those cases.
No judge can know what those facts might be in advance of a case, and judges owe it to the parties to consider those facts impartially. A judge who can’t be impartial, or who has already reached a conclusion or has a bias about a case, is obliged to recuse himself. This is judicial ethics 101.
The claims of deceit are especially unfortunate because they suggest that the Court is no different from the political branches. This is damaging to the Court’s credibility, whether the majority leans to the left or the right. The current majority won’t last forever, perhaps not even many more years, and Democrats deriding the current Court as political won’t be pleased if Republicans make the same claim when their appointees are back in the majority.
The fury of the left’s reaction isn’t merely about guns and abortion. It reflects their grief at having lost the Court as the vehicle for achieving policy goals they can’t get through legislatures. The cultural victories they achieved by judicial fiat will now have to be won by persuading voters. We understand their frustration, but they ought to try democracy for a change. They might even win the debate over abortion.
I am also noticing a couple of other things happening since the SCOTUS ruling on Dobbs and Roe v Wade:
Unpopular opinion: I don’t think states should have had automatic laws ready to go to ban abortion immediately after the ruling.
We argue this ruling returned the debate back to the people and I don’t think these laws reflect that, despite my supporting the outcome.

Yeah, I’m not in agreement with that either. Give the state(s) the chance to poll the citizens, deliberate in the state capitol(s) & state legislators craft state laws & regulations.

2. The pro-life right claiming this is SCOTUS having ruled ‘for life’ is as wrong as the left is in claiming SCOTUS ‘banned abortion’. The SCOTUS did neither. They ruled Roe v Wade was unfounded because abortion rights are not in the US Constitution and that it is up to the states to establish law within their own state government(s). While both pro-life relief and pro-abort anger are expected, two wrong views don’t jibe with the SCOTUS ruling. As WSJ editorial writers suggested, “try democracy for a change.”
3. The corporations now boasting they will pay for/reimburse any employee who has to travel to another pro-abort state for their abortion is ironic in and of itself given their bowing to forced abortion China in business.
Twitchy: AOC calls for impeachment hearings on Justices Kavanaugh, Barrett and Thomas … There were no “lies” at the nomination hearings before the Senate. The majority of our congress critters are “lawyers” and should know better. When a nominee (more often than not a judge … unless it’s Obama nominee Elena Kagan) is before the Senate committee they know their own personal ideology or views are not relevant to cases that have come before them or might come before them. All they can do is state the obvious according to the current situation. Roe was law, thus, it is how the nominees viewed it and answered according to the obvious. In doing so they agreed they would then approach each case coming before them according to that current situation. And the Dobbs v Mississippi case was the case that revealed the huge fault with Roe v Wade, and ruled accordingly. So, any threats of “impeachment for lying” are bullshit, especially from the dancing barmaid with a degree in socialist ‘economics’.
Dillon Burroughs: Sen. Elizabeth Warren Claimed SCOTUS ‘Burned’ Legitimacy In Roe Verdict, Calls For Adding More Justices … What is absolutely insanely hilarious here is that the left’s much loved Justice, now Patron Saint, Ruth Bader Ginsberg warned Roe v Wade was garbage from the start and would, at some point, be struck-down … AND was against SCOTUS court-packing.
Oh, and shove your arguments about what type of guns were in existence when the Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment. Were they able to see the guns we have today they would be envious they didn’t have them during the American Revolution for independence … and would be proud of our having them and fighting to keep them, especially in the face of our current federal government out of control and governing (and taxing/regulating/mandating) without the consent of the governed.
It has long been a dictum of mine that, as far as the progressive Left is concerned, “they never stop, they never sleep, they never quit.” After their twin defeats at the Supreme Court last week, regarding two of their most sensitive issues (both of which derive from their devotion to cultural suicide, which is their principal objective), don’t expect them to give up easily. They subscribe to their version of Islamism or the Brezhnev Doctrine: once they’ve conquered moral or physical tparerritory, it can never go back to the way it was. They see themselves as the heroes of their own movies, good red-diaper babies constantly battling the forces of revanchism and irrendentism, which are you. The idea that they’re the bad guy never occurs to them…

Lindsay Kornick: FRIENDLY FIRE – Liberals rage, slam Kamala Harris’ tweet addressing the Supreme Court’s ruling overturning Roe v. Wade: Kamala Harris tweet on abortion rights slammed by liberals: ‘Literally the embodiment of thoughts and prayers’
With several controversial SCOTUS rulings addressing divisive issues like gun rights and abortion, an exchange between Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Dr. Debra Birx during a congressional hearing on Thursday escaped scrutiny. However, if a power-hungry politician, university, or employer compelled you or someone you love to receive an experimental vaccine in the last two years, it may make you furious. And Birx should be ashamed of herself for not speaking out earlier.
The House Oversight and Reform Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis held a hearing with Birx Thursday morning. Jordan questioned Birx on the United States’ participation in and funding of the World Health Organization and gain of function research. Birx was candid that she felt the United States should withhold funding from the WHO until needed reforms occurred. She also admitted the U.S. should not participate in some gain-of-function research, such as any in China.
However, Jordan’s questions about the Biden administration’s message on COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness should shock the conscience. Jordan asked Birx if the government was lying or guessing when it told the public that people who received the vaccination couldn’t get COVID. Birx responded that she did not know…

So, to me, if you’re actively media campaigning against pro-lifers, trying to smear them for -so- much as DARING to provide alternatives to abortion and offering up means to protect children? You’re not for life. You do not understand or respect -life-.

Glenn Reynolds: Elitist environmentalists hate the working class
As the United States faces skyrocketing oil, gas and electricity prices, the obvious solution is to drill for more oil and gas and build more generating plants. Naturally, that’s off the table because the people who are being hurt most aren’t the ones who set the agenda.
High prices hurt everyone to a degree, but they’re hardest on the working classes. Most Americans drive to work, and even in most places with mass transit there are far more jobs within a 30-minute drive than there are within a 30-minute bus or train ride. Cars also make it easier to take kids to school, shop for groceries in a wider variety of places and stay in touch with family and friends.
With gas prices having more than doubled since January 2021, the cost of doing all these things has also more than doubled. For a family that’s stretched tight already, twice as much money for gas means less money for other things, like food, clothing or education. (And it doesn’t help that prices for those things are also skyrocketing.)
Nonetheless, environmentalists seem happy with these changes…
Robert Spencer: Is the Green Agenda Being Forced Upon Us by Accident?
The Left hates oil and gas, beef (and chicken, and all meat), and coal. But millions of Americans don’t believe the hysterical Leftist claims that these things are destroying the planet. What to do about these folks? A number of suspicious recent incidents suggest that some people have decided to take matters into their own hands and force compliance with the green agenda by leaving us no other choice…
