Scare Tactics on Roe v. Wade

In their desperate determination to block confirmation of the President’s new Supreme Court nominee, Democrats warn about the imminent threat to Roe v. Wade.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s critics suggest that if Roe goes, then abortion would be instantly criminalized and women and doctors would be prosecuted. Yet even if Roe were overturned—which is unlikely—it would bring no instant change in abortion law. It would merely allow state legislatures more leeway in adjusting abortion regulations in the future.

Even before the Roe decision in 1973, 23 states had already passed some form of legalized abortion. No pro-Constitution jurist ever suggested that our Charter of Liberty bans abortion, any more than that same Constitution protects it. In our Republic, we entrust the most important decisions to the people and their elected representatives—meaning legislatures and executives write the laws, not an unelected judiciary.

    Well, the Left wouldn't have this problem if they hadn't used the courts to circumvent the will of the people in the first place.. All their sneaky moves are coming back to bite them in the butt. Actually, I think we SHOULD take a page out of their playbook and expand the SCOTUS to 17 jurists and pack the courts! We SHOULD find a right of equality for White (gasp), Christian (oh no!), men (choke). Yes, they cannot be penalized on the basis of race, religion and gender! What an idea! Our conservative court should also find that the right to not be bullied, subjected to threats, rioted against, and calls for uncivility SUPERCEDES free speech. The courts should also find the right to a trial before the unborn baby receives the death penalty. In other words, it is up to the mother and the doctor to PROVE that the baby is not a human being. It would be wonderful if courts also cemented the right of all religions; that respect shouldn't be given only to Muslims.

    For nearly half a century, the Left has used the courts to push their agenda. Maybe it's our turn. Maybe, maybe, we should allow them to be right after all the years of saying that the Liberal sky is falling.

    Dear Michael,

    Is Strozckxyzk innocent? Yes, he’s a Democrat.

    Is your choice for President (Hillary) innocent of the several hundred felonies she’s committed? Yes, she is a Clinton.

    Are Clapper, Brennen, Rosenstein, Comey, McCabe, Wray innocent? Yes, they’re examples of America’s finest Deep State public servants.

    Does Obama love the country? Yes, where else can you launder US taxpayer dollars through every terrorist country on Earth back to his personal foundation by the billons.

    Is the Dem Party trying to overthrow the Republic? Of course not, they just want to change the fundamentals so it’s fair for all like Cuba and Venezuela. That’s called a social democracy and it’s fair for everyone.

    So Michael, do you agree that monarchs, Marxists, totalitarian thugs and anarchists is the current path for America if the above escapes equal treatment under the law? I do. You don’t. And guess, what most Americans do. Why do you hate Trump? Why do you always go along with status quo when you know the absolute truth about the Dems demolition of our freedom, liberty and America. I will never understand why the GOP is completely unable to recognize common sense. Obama tried to destroy America and Clinton would’ve finished the job. Trump has saved it and the GOP wants to play politics. The GOP is sick. Disgusting.

    Do you watch how Trump solves problems? Of course not – pundits, poets and politicians don’t work for a living. Trump is not complicated, you always know where he stands – if he draws a line in the sand, he means it 100% of the time. You cannot lie to people in the private sector and stay in business – your job as a politician is to continually lie to the constituency that elected you. Your job as a Democrat is to overthrow the Republic by violence. Espousing class and race separation, sanctuary terrorist cities and states and of course killing cops, military and ICE personnel are their hallmarks, founding principles if you will. Democrats hate every sentence in our founding documents. Most Republicans wander around DC, deer-in-the-headlights looks on their faces until someone tells them how to vote.

    Trump’s secret, morons: Go to your job everyday with a pleasant attitude about being helpful to others, work hard and all else takes care of itself including money, promotion, respect, reliability and of course, happiness. Your job is always about helping others solve their problems.

    Public sector workers cannot be fired if they’re serial killers. Eighty percent of public sector jobs are worthless wastes of money—Trillions of dollars, none of which comes out of their pockets, are pissed away every year to and by these crooks. And now they (Democrats) are in high gear violence mode to impeach Trump, overthrow the Republic and have wide open borders. Just like Europe—over 800 terrorist cities, unlimited opioids and tens of millions of illegals voting multiple times every Election Day will surely bring our Cuban Paradise.

      Lincoln predicted the rise of the modern-day, leftist's movement. What he could never have predicted was the lack of an effective opposition, and the willingness of the other side to go along to get along.

      God bless Trump! He has been a grain of hope, in a desert of GOP hopelessness. He has been a dam, against the flood of years of Anti-Americanism!

      How then shall we perform it?–At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it?– Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never!–All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.

      At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.

      Lincoln predicted the rise of the modern-day, leftist's movement.

        Brilliantly stated and such common sense!!! The Midterm Election could be a benchmark for a big right turn. I believed the Republican establishment when they said Trump would loose 45 states, and didn’t vote for Trump in 2016. I do NOT trust the GOP any longer. Trump has saved the country and constitution thus far and hopefully his progeny will carry on in his footsteps for generations to come against the tyranny of the Left. In Trump, and Rizzo, we trust!!!

    I don't think we will be hearing from Armand aka Adolf any time soon.

  5. Armand  •  Jul 14, 2018 at 2:07 pm

    Implying that someone who objectively made you look stupid(actually you make yourself look stupid) is a murderer is subject to civil fortiture. I’m sorry that you’re stupid, but do not imply that I am a murderer; as that’s “bearing false witness” and against your sandbox religion. It’s also against the secular, pagan constructed “golden rule” created before immoral Abrahamic religion began poisoning low IQ minds such as yours

  6. Rizzo  •  Jul 14, 2018 at 2:56 pm

    Good one Adolf.
    I’m still looking for that map that shows the US as an entire slave country.

  7. Armand  •  Jul 14, 2018 at 3:05 pm

    I’m still waiting for you to admit that Africans states take the PiSA(“they’re not even OECD members, idiot” you said).
    You want a map….here’s a series of them.
    After 1857 there were no free states by federal law! One could buy slaves in Arlington, VA and no state law could deprive you of your property.
    Also, you got the Lincoln quote wrong ,and did not cite references.

  8. Rizzo  •  Jul 14, 2018 at 3:29 pm

    So, in addition to being dumb as shit, you are also apparently color-blind.
    Blue represents FREE STATES, and red are slave states. At no point in time, is the entire country RED.
    Go ask your Mom how that map legend works, ok Genius?
    Now don’t go away mad, just go away.

  9. Armand  •  Jul 14, 2018 at 3:57 pm

    There were slaves in every state; the map only begins “with free state legislation in state legislatures.” You’re dumb as shit. Go try and read the economist correctly you religious nut.
    Want another “map” that shows the us in 1778?

  10. Armand  •  Jul 14, 2018 at 4:00 pm

    “The Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, and established independence from England. In 1777, Vermont became the first colony to abolish slavery.” Vermont state Museum
    Slavery was legal in all states
    You’re stupid

    • Rizzo  •  Jul 14, 2018 at 5:27 pm

      RainMan, moron…. why are you now talking about 1776?
      Your link is: Animation showing which areas of the United States did and did not allow slavery between 1789 and Lincoln's inauguration in 1861. The animation includes a 5 second frame on 1789, 1800, 1821, 1837, The unrealized 1846 Wilmot Proviso, 1846, 1858, and 1861. The map colorings of some areas require further comment. New York (1799) and New Jersey (1804) adopted laws gradually freeing enslaved people, but some people in these states remained enslaved until 1824 (NY) and 1865 (NJ). Territories and states which had not specifically banned slavery are colored red/pink.

      Now, repeat your favorite things….. Economist, PISA, OECD, Africa. Yeah, definitely, definitely gotta get to Kmart. Uh oh.

  11. Armand  •  Jul 14, 2018 at 4:05 pm

    You just fall for all of em don’t you? And you call me “stupid?” Go read the economist and OECD PiSA data that shows how dumb Israelis are
    “At no point is the whole map red?” 1776 moron. Then all red again in 1857, with court ruling the state statutes beginning in1777 were “unconstitutional!”
    You’re dumber then democrat TY or even religious nut democrat/neo con salesman Michael medved

    • Rizzo  •  Jul 14, 2018 at 4:13 pm

      Uh oh…. I forgot…. definitely Pisa data.

  12. Rizzo  •  Jul 14, 2018 at 4:12 pm

    Adolf, you’re a regular RainMan.
    You just keep repeating the same shit,
    Face it, you’re a moron.
    Now please repeat “Economist, OECD, Africa”
    Definitely, definitely got to get to KMart…. uh oh.
    Definitely, OECD. Definitely Economist. Definitely Africa…. uh oh.

  13. Rizzo  •  Jul 14, 2018 at 5:29 pm

    You know why I call you stupid, right?
    Mainly, because you are.
    No wait, completely, because you are.
    But, you probably wouldn’t understand…. because you’re stupid.

  14. Armand  •  Jul 15, 2018 at 3:45 am

    Morons aren’t on the Forbes list
    You can’t even read a list from the econkmist

    • Rizzo  •  Jul 15, 2018 at 9:52 am

      Morons aren’t on The Forbes list?
      Forbes just put Kylie Jenner on their cover.
      You are a certified moron.
      You send me a link of some maps, and CLEARLY, in every timeframe of that map, it shows FREE STATES.
      So, how does that prove there were no free states?
      Nevermind, OECD, Economist, Africa, PISA…. gotta get Kmart. Definitely Kmart… uh oh Religion.

  15. Armannd  •  Jul 15, 2018 at 5:08 am

    Morons are theones who can’t read a list from the economist; not people
    Who repeat objective facts that refute your stupid positions.
    Slavery was ruled to have always been legal in all the states(as it was in 1776). State laws restricting slaveholding were found to be unconstitutional in 1857. Therefore “free states” never existed. Why this is so hard for you is a mystery. But your a religious moron who loves Israel and is against free market capitalism

  16. Rizzo  •  Jul 15, 2018 at 10:52 am

    Oh, and one last thing Moron… "you got the Lincoln quote wrong ,and did not cite references"
    Uh, it's called Lincoln's Lyceum Address. I didn't realize I had to cite a reference for such common knowledge… but, then again, you are uncommonly stoopid.
    My apologies.
