Supreme Court Overturns Roe V. Wade

Missouri Makes Abortion Illegal Within The Hour

ZeroHedge

The Supreme Court has overturned Roe vs. Wade, returning the decision on whether or not abortion is legal to individual states.

“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences.,” wrote Justice Samuel Alito in the Friday decision – the May 2 leak of which led to widespread protests and an attempted murder against Justice Brett Kavanaugh – the court overturned the 1973 case which guaranteed access to abortion nationwide.

Justices Breyer, Sotomayor and Kagan unsurprisingly dissented.

The case at issue – Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization challenged a Mississippi law that banned most abortions after 15 weeks. Lower courts, citing a previous ruling in Planned Parenthood v. Casey preventing states from banning abortion within the first 24 weeks of gestation, had prevented Dobbs from being enacted – which the Supreme Court just reversed.

In response to the ruling, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that Congressional Democrats would work to “enshrine Roe v. Wade into law” – while former President Obama said the ruling attacks ‘essential freedoms.’

Chuck Schumer (D-NY) tweeted that “American women are having their rights taken by 5 unelected Justices on the extremist MAGA court.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said that the ruling is “courageous and correct.”

Within an hour of the USSC Roe decision, Missouri ended abortion in the state.

Earlier this month, President Joe Biden said that there would be a “mini revolution” in November’s midterm elections if the landmark decision was overturned – insisting that overturning the law would be “ridiculous” and would drive Democrat turnout in November’s midterm elections.

“I don’t think the country will stand for it,” he said, adding “If in fact the decision comes down the way it does, and these states impose the limitations they’re talking about, it’s going to cause a mini revolution and they’re going to vote these folks out of office.

Earlier this year, Congressional Democrats tried and failed to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law. Meanwhile, Biden said he was exploring the use of executive orders depending on the final Supreme Court decision.

Biden also pushed voters to come out during midterms so that Congressional dems would have enough of a majority to codify abortion rights into law.

“You gotta vote to let people know exactly what the devil you think,” he told Kimmel.

As the Post Millennial notes:

Several states have said that they would become sanctuary states for abortion access, California, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Colorado among them. Many states already have abortion on demand, such as Oregon, up into the third trimester. The Biden administration has promised to try and counteract any laws opposing abortion.

Other states have enacted laws that drastically restrict abortion, such as Texas, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and others.
The Centers for Disease control report that there were 629,898 abortions in the United States in 2019, but they rely on voluntary reporting data, and California, Maryland, and New Hampshire did not report their totals. This number is higher than the voluntarily reported 619,591 in 2018, and 612,719 abortions in 2017….Abortion activists and militants have issued statements that they would be actively and violently protesting the ruling the night the decision drops, calling for a “Night of Rage.” The homes of Supreme Court justices have been protested.

And now, for protests

15 DeceptiCons Vote to Close Debate on Senate Gun Control Legislation, An Important One Was Permitted to Hide

15 DeceptiCons Vote to Close Debate on Senate Gun Control Legislation, An Important One Was Permitted to Hide

In 2006 we originally faced 20 DeceptiCons in the Senate.  They represent the right wing of the DC Congressional UniParty.  Having removed a few, and some of them died (McCain, Cochran) there are still 16 of them in office.  They are led by Mitch McConnell.

This is the same crew who vehemently opposed the nomination of Donald Trump for office.  These are the same republican senators who aligned against the Tea Party and later against the MAGA movement represented by our efforts to put Donald Trump into office.  These are the DeceptiCons we have been discussing for 16 years.  However, these are also a very sneaky bunch – notice how McConnell’s #2, John Thune, was permitted to avoid the DeceptiCon sunlight.

Today the DeceptiCons [Blunt (MO), Burr (NC), Capito (WV), Cassidy (LA), Collins (ME), Cornyn (TX), Ernst (IA), Graham (SC), McConnell (KY), Murkowski (AK), Portman (OH), Romney (UT), Tillis (NC), Toomey (PA) and Young (IN)] voted to shut down debate on the democrat senate firearm restriction and confiscation bill.  The vote to invoke cloture shuts down debate and ends the opportunity for a filibuster.  Invoking cloture, ie voting to support cloture, is a vote in support of the bill.

WASHINGTON DC – […] Ahead of the vote, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the Senate could pass the final bill as soon as Thursday with GOP cooperation. However, if any one of the 100 senators objects, final passage could occur as late as Friday night, briefly delaying the chamber’s planned two-week recess.

“We are not going to leave until we pass this bill,” Schumer said. “This is not a cure-all for all the ways gun violence affects our nation, but it is a long overdue step in the right direction. It’s significant, it’s going to save lives, and it’s my intention to get it done as soon as we can.”

The gun safety legislation amounts to Congress’ most significant response to mass shootings in nearly 30 years. The package, negotiated by Sens. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), comes about one month after a gunman killed 19 children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas.

Senate Minority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.) said Thursday the timing on final passage depended on whether the chamber would vote on amendments to the package. Republicans can drag the bill out if they don’t get the votes they are requesting because any quick action requires unanimous consent.

“As of right now there’s a very serious interest in at least some small amount” of amendments, Thune said. Cornyn agreed that his “bias is in favor of amendments.” (read more)

Mitch McConnell is the Machiavellian manipulator of the senate.  Notice how McConnell provides cover for John Thune who did not vote to support cloture?

Do not be fooled.  McConnell is grooming Thune to replace him and maintain the Wall Street/Donor system.

Senator John Thune is the DeceptiCon insurance policy to maintain power in the upper chamber after the 2022 mid-terms.

Watch Thune.

Trump: Senate ‘Gun Control’ bill is ‘first step’ toward Taking Away Firearms

Trump: Senate ‘Gun Control’ bill is ‘first step’ toward Taking Away Firearms


Trump: Senate ‘Gun Control’ bill is ‘first step’ toward Taking Away Firearms

“Republicans, be careful what you wish for!” Trump warned

By Madeleine Hubbard

Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that the Senate is pushing a “Gun Control” bill, which will be the “first step” in the movement to confiscate firearms.

“The deal on ‘Gun Control’ currently being structured and pushed in the Senate by the Radical Left Democrats, with the help of Mitch McConnell, RINO Senator John Cornyn of Texas, and others, will go down in history as the first step in the movement to TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY. Republicans, be careful what you wish for!!!” Trump wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social.

His post comes one day after the Senate voted 64-34 to proceed with the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, which will tighten loopholes in federal firearms laws and allocate funding toward mass-shooting prevention.

Other Republicans voiced similar concerns over the legislation, despite the fact that it passed with 14 GOP votes.

“We are being asked to vote tonight to begin debate on a gun proposal whose legislative text was only made available less than an hour ago,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) wrote Tuesday evening on Twitter.

The legislation, which will likely pass before the end of the month, comes in response to the mass shootings at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket, where 10 people died, and at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, where 21 people were killed, including 19 children.

Senate Unveils Language of Gun Control Deal: Expands Background Checks, Expands Prohibited Purchasers

Senate Unveils Language of Gun Control Deal: Expands Background Checks, Expands Prohibited Purchasers

The Senate unveiled Tuesday the language of the bipartisan gun control deal Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) struck with Democrats at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) behest.

NPR reports that the gun control expands background checks for gun buyers ages 18-20. The legislation also expands the prohibited buyers list by adding dating relationships under the domestic violence clause, thus closing the “boyfriend loophole” Democrats have been arguing against for years.

The legislation also contains financial incentives for states that agree to adopt red flag laws.

Rep. Matt Gaetz anticipated the financial incentives for red laws, telling Breitbart News Saturday that the Cornyn gun control package uses “federal money to bribe states to enact red flag laws.”

Gaetz then restated it, saying, the Cornyn gun control package is “literally using the federal government to bribe the states to deprive citizens of their Second Amendment rights.”

The NRA responded to the gun control by saying it “falls short at every level.”

They added, “This legislation can be abused to restrict lawful gun purchases, infringe upon the rights of law-abiding Americans, & use fed dollars to fund gun control measures being adopted by state & local politicians.”

The NRA noted, “This bill leaves too much discretion in the hands of government officials and also contains undefined and overboard provisions — inviting interference with our constitutional freedoms.”

Report: Mitch McConnell a ‘Yes’ Vote on Senate Gun Control Agreement

Report: Mitch McConnell a ‘Yes’ Vote on Senate Gun Control Agreement

CBS correspondent Scott MacFarlane reports that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is a “yes” vote on the Senate gun control agreement.

On May 26 Breitbart News reported that McConnell tapped Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) to work with Democrats to achieve bipartisan gun control.

On June 12 a bipartisan Senate gun control agreement was announced.

Breitbart News reported that the agreement includes a requirement for an “investigative period” during background checks for gun purchases for persons under 21 years of age. The agreement does not indicate any stipulation for how long this “investigative period” may last or how long it could stretch the time it takes to complete a background check.

On June 14, MacFarlane tweeted, “Sen Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announces he will support bi-partisan framework on new gun control and school safety legislation.”

MacFarlane further indicated McConnell’s position, partially quoting him: “the bipartisan group has done the best they can” to reach a gun control agreement.

McConnell, His 10 GOP Pushovers, And Any Others Who Attack The Second Amendment Can’t Be In Leadership

McConnell, His 10 GOP Pushovers, And Any Others Who Attack The Second Amendment Can’t Be In Leadership

The corporate media is abuzz with news that senators have reached a “bipartisan” gun deal that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell endorsed on Tuesday — but sacrificing Americans’ constitutional rights to hoaxing Democrats who have and will use their power to target their political enemies is nothing for Republicans to be proud of. It’s the type of ideological surrender that they should lose their jobs and leadership positions over.

The bill text is still not available but from what Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy’s Twitter feed and the official framework indicate, the legislation could include sweeping measures such as problematic red flag laws that overstep too many constitutional bounds for Republicans to comfortably sacrifice.

Despite concerns that the legislation could compromise Americans’ Second, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights, McConnell and 10 of his squishiest GOP colleagues including Sens. John Cornyn of Texas, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Rob Portman of Ohio, Richard Burr of North Carolina, Mitt Romney of Utah, Bill Cassidy of Lousiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania plan to join the Democrats’ anti-gun escapades. Together, they caved to the emotional blackmail wielded by Murphy and amplified by the corporate media.

Republicans have no good reason to trust Democrats to skilfully create legislation that is mindful of Americans’ rights. Nor do GOPers have reasons to support legislation that yields little evidence of actually deterring criminals from committing crimes that are already illegal.

After all, the leftist legislators supporting the gun deal are the same politicians who supported spying on a president, falsely accused a Supreme Court nominee-turned-justice of rape, defended the Biden administration when it sicced the feds on parents who wanted a say in what happens in their child’s classrooms, and so much more.

In the past, when Democrats have been given inch-sized opportunities to restrict gun rights, they’ve sought to take miles and ban certain guns and gun parts altogether.

As my colleague Federalist Senior Editor David Harsanyi recently noted, historically, “Democrats have not only tried to expand the definition of partner” in domestic violence-motivated gun grabs but have also tried to broaden “the reasons for losing your gun rights to include many types of non-violent misdemeanors.”

Yet, some of the most powerful GOPers in Congress, even those who have sworn to protect the Second Amendment, are salivating to sign dangerously broad and likely deliberately unspecific legislation crafted by these same Democrats.

Congressional Democrats like Murphy and their allies in corporate media have already admitted that the gun deal includes “considerably more than [Democrats] hoped for initially.”

That’s because the Republicans involved in negotiations pressured for nothing, so they got nothing.

McConnell’s gun restriction lead negotiator Cornyn likes to brag about his A+ rating from the National Rifle Association but the Republican’s former promises not to restrict Americans’ rights to guns have been repeatedly broken and will be violated if this new bill passes. Even Cornyn’s meaningless boasting about everything excluded from the Democrats’ bill signals there’s nothing that was included that he found worthy of praising.

So not only have Republicans signed onto more gun restrictions but they’ve also ceded constitutional ground to Democrats who have a history of abusing their self-assigned power to gatekeep who can access a firearm.

Yielding power to Democrats like Murphy who exploited the Texas tragedy to orchestrate a gun grab is nothing for McConnell or any Republicans to be proud of. As a matter of fact, that’s something worth forcing them out of office over.

The people most at risk of losing in this “bipartisan” deal are Republicans who will never get the benefit of a winning compromise with Democrats and law-abiding citizens who under the Consitution have every right to own and use guns. Most congressional Republicans have sworn to protect these rights but right now, 10 of the ones closest to McConnell are not.

These Republicans were chosen carefully because most of them are not at risk of getting voted out of office soon, but the dozens of other Senate GOPers who see the problems with handing over control of Americans’ rights should do everything they can to bar them from leadership. If Republicans were willing to cave on the Second Amendment, how much emotional manipulation will it take for them to surrender on other key conservative issues?

250 Republican Donors Praise Sen. Cornyn’s Gun Control Efforts

250 Republican Donors Praise Sen. Cornyn’s Gun Control Efforts

Two hundred fifty Republican donors ran an ad in the Dallas Morning News on Sunday stating their support for Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-TX) gun control efforts.

Breitbart News reported on May 27 that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) tapped Sen. Cornyn to work with Democrats to achieve “bipartisan” gun control.

Over a year earlier, on April 20, 2021, Breitbart News pointed to a Politico story that indicated Cornyn was talking to Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) in hopes of finding “common ground” on gun control.

The Hill indicated the 250 GOP donors used a Sunday ad in the Dallas Morning News to support McConnell’s selection of Cornyn to lead the gun control push.

The donors said, “He’s the right man to lead this bipartisan effort, as he has demonstrated throughout his career.”

On June 3 Politico explained that Cornyn indicated “it will be embarrassing” if the Senate cannot get something done in the wake of the Uvalde attack.

White House: Joe Biden Wants Gun Control, Does Not Support Hardening School Security

The White House on Tuesday said President Joe Biden does not support proposals that would strengthen school security and would rather focus on gun control.

The White House reacted to proposals from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for a legislative response to the mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

“In discussing how we might come together to target the problem of mental illness and school safety, we’ll get back at it next week and hope to have results,” McConnell said Tuesday.

But the White House reacted negatively to McConnell’s proposals.

“Those are two things that he does not agree on,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre said on Tuesday when asked about McConnell’s proposals at the daily press briefing.

She said Biden was not interested in making schools more secure to help stop potential shooters.

“That is not his focus obviously and when it comes to school … I know there has been a conversation about hardening schools, that is not something he believes in,” Jean-Pierre said.

She also dismissed proposed legislation on mental health issues, focusing instead on the “pandemic” of gun violence in the United States.

“What’s the problem here. The problem is with guns and not having legislation to really deal with an issue that is a pandemic here in this country,” she said.

Biden said Monday he believed that McConnell and some “rational Republicans” could come up with some kind of gun control legislation.

“Look, I don’t know, but I think there’s a realization on the part of rational Republicans … I think there’s a recognition in their part that they — we can’t continue like this.  We can’t do this,” he said.
