Posted in: Texas vow to 'eliminate all rapists' rings hollow at clinics See in context

The GOP cares about the unborn about as much as they care about rape victims. After all, their main man has been credibly accused by multiple women of sexual assault, and said man even boasted about his “power” over women.

It’s just feels so good to pretend you care.

Thanks for cutting the child tax credit, GOP. Nothing says concern for little children like yanking away their lifesavers.

it’s up to the states

Except the GOP wants to make abortion a federal crime if they can. At least after the midterms.

now the government got out of the peoples way,

When the government outlaws abortion, it's getting in people's way.

“We are coordinating with all state and local government partners to track potential impacts of this storm.”

Notice how DeSantis purposely omits mention of the federal government, whose help is vital during these crises. Of course DeSantis will gladly accept aid from the federal government when his state is under water, but he won't acknowledge it. Because, you know, he's a political stunt man.

More like a deeper clarification to the average American as to how getting involved in this conflict benefits America.

You think Biden should not have supported Ukraine militarily. And you think sanctions have not been effective. And you think Biden's speech should have had more "teeth".

What the . . .?

I really don't understand Trumpworld's stance on Ukraine (apart from their admiration for "tough" guys like Putin).

Falsely declared the size of his Manhattan apartment to be 30,000 square feet when it was actually 11,000.

Falsely declared its value at $327 million, far higher than any apartment ever sold in NY.

Is this normal business behavior? Just like not paying your contractors or stealing from your own charity?

Legal cases require evidence of wrongdoing. James has plenty of evidence that Trump inflated his actual worth by billions of dollars.

Does Trump (or do you) have evidence to counter that claim?

--Trump has also (again) called James a "racist".

It would seem that she is.

Why would it seem that she is racist? Both you and your leader have made this accusation. Time to back that up with evidence.

Alina Habba, an attorney for Trump, said the lawsuit “is neither focused on the facts nor the law — rather, it is solely focused on advancing the Attorney General’s political agenda.”

This has become the standard defense of the indefensible: vilify the investigators and the prosecutors. Trump has also (again) called James a "racist".

--Judge Cannon is a Trump toady.

Because she voted fairly?

She didn't vote. She ruled. And her ruling was so nonsensical that lawyers on both sides of the political spectrum ridiculed it.

So she's either incredibly incompetent or she's a toady. Or both.

It’s a word more globally recognized than “pavement”. Remember, the Empire isn’t what it used to be. The English language is not a property of the Crown.

This is meant to cement in people’s minds the importance of the monarchy. Charles is not a particularly popular dude, so they’ve got to get their money’s worth out of the queen’s legacy.

BTW, will the Koh-i-Noor diamond be part of the funeral procession?

The world's most expensive nostalgia show. The British Empire is long dead, and the Commonwealth is mostly an impotent symbol of a lost colonial era.

I don't deny anyone the right to mourn the death of a loved one. I just wish this pomp and circumstance weren't foisted on the majority of human beings in the world who think monarchies are plain wrong. Even when (in the case of the UK) they generate tons of tourist revenue.

How many more days is this going to go on?

Exactly.

For MAGA Republicans, the cruelty is the point. Just like when they separated 5,000 children (including infants) from their parents.

I'm all for working toward comprehensive immigration reform. Just stop the abuse.

Allowing states to vote will fortunately backfire on the SC ruling.

Republicans are starting to realize this. Lindsey Graham just introduced a bill banning abortion nationwide after 15 weeks. And in Michigan the GOP tried unsuccessfully to stop abortion rights being put on the ballot in November.

There has been no proof to date that in fact these documents that were once classified still are.

Read the article. It's irrelevant from a legal angle whether the docs are classified or not. He took presidential documents to his house. That's illegal. Period.

“In what at its core is a document storage dispute that has spiraled out of control, the Government wrongfully seeks to criminalize the possession by the 45th President of his own Presidential and personal records.”

Another bad faith argument by Team Trump.

He was hiding government documents among personal ones. 45 is a crook, always has been.
