South Carolina Republicans Join Democrats to Block Amendment Preventing Distribution of Voter Registration Forms to Non-Citizens

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 20:20

South Carolina Republican legislators have sided with Democrats to block a proposed amendment that sought to prevent state agencies from distributing voter registration forms to non-citizens.

The controversy ignited when a ‘refugee’ non-citizen received a voter registration form, prompting Governor Henry McMaster (R-SC) to initiate an investigation into the matter.

“The integrity of our elections is and must remain a top priority. Today, I asked SLED to immediately contact Rep. Adam Morgan so they can evaluate the authenticity of his allegations of non-citizens being provided voter registration forms,” McMaster wrote on May 1.

Earlier this month, The Gateway Pundit reported that according to South Carolina state representative and congressional candidate Adam Morgan, the state government is including voter registration forms in packets at the Social Security Office in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

“Is the Federal Gov giving voter registration forms to non-citizens?” Adam Morgan said on X (this was later corrected to the state of South Carolina).

“Yes, at least in SC. A refugee sent us this form that was given to her in a packet at the Social Security Office in Spartanburg. She asked “Why are they giving these to non-citizens?”” he said.

Attached to Adam Morgan’s post was a photo of the voter registration form included in the welcome packet for refugees.

It gets worse.

According to Rep. Adam Morgan, the refugee’s relative “mailed the forms back and criticized the office for distributing them to people they knew were non-citizens.”

“A few weeks later the refugees received more voter registration forms in the mail,” Rep. Morgan said.

“None of this is by accident,” he said.

But the story gets worse. Her relative mailed the forms back and criticized the office for distributing them to people they knew were non-citizens.

None of this is by accident.

Morgan later clarified that the forms were indeed distributed by a state agency — the South Carolina Medicaid Office — and not a federal entity as initially thought.

UPDATE: after calling the agencies and all parties involved, it appears the form was given by the STATE gov (SC Medicaid Office). The refugee confused the offices.

We are set to pass a bill prohibiting non-citizens from voting in SC elections!

Stop this nonsense in your state!

— Adam Morgan (@RepAdamMorgan) April 29, 2024

In response to the incident, Morgan proposed an amendment to the state budget that would explicitly prevent state agencies from sending out voter registration forms to non-citizens. However, the amendment was met with opposition from Republicans and Democrats.

The opposition was spearheaded by Republicans, including Majority Whip for the SC House GOP, Brandon Newton, and SC House Speaker, Murrell Smith, who contended that the amendment was non-germane, leading to the defeat of Morgan’s amendment.

Our Chair @RepAdamMorgan amended the budget to stop agencies from distributing voter registration forms to non-citizens.

Morgan publicly expressed his disappointment and astonishment at his party’s dissent, stating, “Today I was shocked as ‘Republicans’ joined Democrats to kill my amendment to stop government agencies from distributing voter registration forms to non-citizens in South Carolina.”

“We have wolves in sheep’s clothing in our Party. Wake up, America!” he added.

Oh Goodie!… Biden Campaign Spox Tells MSNBC that Joe Biden WILL Be Debating Donald Trump (VIDEO)

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 20:00

Not a chance in hell.
All the cocaine in Hollywood won’t make this dementia patient sound coherent.

Old Joe Biden’s campaign spokesperson Adrienne Elrod told Morning Mika on Wednesday that Joe Biden will “definitely” be debating President Trump? Will he be mentioning him by name? Will the campaign be going after Trump on a regular basis to try and draw that contrast? Is that necessary?

Mika Brzezinksi: What about Joe Biden confronting Donald Trump either on a debate stage or on a number of these issues

Adrienne Elrod: I think absolutely it is, Mika. And look I think President Biden has made it very clear that he will be debating Donald Trump… There is no better way to articulate what Donald Trump would do in a second term as president than using his own words. Those words are devisive, they’re dangerous.

Tell us again that Trump is a danger.

This debate will never happen. And that is because Democrats already have their election stealing apparatus ready to roll in 2024. They don’t need to debate anymore.

Recall: Back in 2020 Democrats would only hold TWO debates instead of the typical three debates. They skipped the foreign policy debate because they knew Trump would destroy the Democrat record of destruction.

“Right after we ordered a huge batch of mylar bags, we decided to rebrand with a new bag design,” Nelson said. “So we have all of these bags with the older design that we need to use up.”

The thick, resealable mylar bags are used in combination with oxygen absorbers to keep the freeze dried beef inside shelf-stable for decades. They cannot and should not be discarded, so Prepper All-Naturals is offering the 25% discount until the old mylar is all gone.

The company uses the highest quality mylar because their products have one ingredient: Beef. There are not preservatives or anything else. They don’t even add salt so the beef can fit in with the vast majority of American diets.

Bad timing of the rebrand means now is the best timing to stock up on long-term storage beef.

Disgraced Ex-CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo Now Admits to Taking Ivermectin Daily — Refuses to Apologize for Shaming People Who Didn’t Take the Experimental Shot

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 19:20

In a recent episode of the PBD Podcast, hosted by Patrick Bet-David (PBD) along with co-hosts Adam Sosnick, Tom Ellsworth, and Vincent Oshana, former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo made admissions about his health regimen and stance on the COVID-19 vaccines.

The episode saw Cuomo confront his past criticisms of vaccine skeptics as he now embraces a treatment he once scorned.

During the discussion, Bet-David showed a resurfaced clip from 2021 in which Cuomo criticized Rep. Byron Donalds for his decision not to get vaccinated against COVID-19. In the clip, Cuomo chastised Donalds for allegedly neglecting public health responsibilities, stating:

“Everybody should know that about you, Byron Donalds. You are not telling people to get vaccinated. You are not pushing it. You are not saying it’s the right choice. You’re saying you’re not doing it, and your family is not doing it, and you’re leaving out of the equation that you can make other people sick as if that doesn’t matter. Okay?”

In response, Donalds defended his position, asserting that vaccination is a personal choice and he should not be berated for making that decision.

“If you want to be protected from these variants and the original strain, please go get vaccinated. What about protect other people? I promote you to do that,” Donalds emphasized. “But if there are Americans like myself who choose not to, please don’t berate me for doing that. That is a personal choice I have made with my own health care.”

“I did talk to a couple of doctors that I know about it. I told them. “I already had it, and I’m 42. What do you think?” They said, “Yeah, you’re fine. If that’s what you want to do, go ahead and do it.” They didn’t come and say, “No, you have to do it because of everybody else.” Because if other people want to be protected, they have access to vaccines. Go get the vaccine. I would never tell anybody not to get vaccinated. I do totally support it if that’s what somebody chooses to do,” Donalds added.

Despite Donalds’ rationale, Cuomo remained firm in his criticism, suggesting Donalds’ stance was “dumb as a proxy for being bold.”

Fast forward to the PBD Podcast interview, Cuomo reflected on how his views have evolved since then, admitting that he now regularly takes ivermectin. He acknowledged that the medical community had unfairly dismissed the drug.

“I am taking a… What do they call it? Like a regular dose, whatever. They’re trying to build up of ivermectin. Ivermectin was a boogie man early on in COVID.”

Cuomo went on to express frustration over the misinformation surrounding ivermectin and the failure to provide accurate information to the public. He criticized government officials for stifling open dialogue.

“We were given bad information about Ivermectin. The real question is, why? Everyone’s going to say, ‘Joe Rogan was right.’ But that’s not what matters. What matters is the entire clinical community knew that Ivermectin couldn’t hurt you. They knew it. I know they knew it. How do I know? Because now I’m doing nothing but talking to these clinicians who, at the time, were overwhelmed by COVID, and they weren’t saying anything. Not that they were hiding anything, but it’s cheap, it’s not owned by anybody, and it’s used as an anti-microbial, antiviral in all of these different ways. It has been for a long time.”

Ironically, Cuomo was one of those spreading misinformation about Ivermectin during the pandemic.

WATCH:

Chris Cuomo just said that ivermectin works, he takes it daily, and that the medical community knew it couldn’t hurt you if you took it for Covid.

— MAZE (@mazemoore) May 8, 2024

When confronted with his past criticism of those who refused the vaccine, Cuomo refused to apologize, insisting that he was only relaying the best practices provided by government officials at the time:

“Apology? Of course not. Byron Donalds comes on my show. I believe as a leader at that time, you had a duty to be thorough in what you were putting out there as opposed to just playing politics. This was never as simple as vaccine good, vaccine bad. Politics made it that.”

Flashback, here’s a video of Chris Cuomo calling millions of unvaccinated Americans the “biggest enemy in America.”

WATCH:

Chris Cuomo won’t even apologize for labeling unvaccinated Americans were “our biggest enemy in America” when he was 100% in the wrong.

It’s safe to say the things he’s saying now, so he’s saying them — and expecting plaudits for bravery.

Nope.pic.twitter.com/C0PohbsnuT

— Western Lensman (@WesternLensman) May 8, 2024

His ego is way to big for him to apologize. Cuomo further defended his past positions, maintaining that the vaccine significantly reduced hospitalizations and serious COVID-19 cases.

“The data is overwhelming that when the vaccine entered our population, the people going into the hospital with very serious or eventually terminal cases was reduced,” he said. “Now, at what cost and why? We don’t know.”

Despite his admissions and evolving views, Cuomo remained resolute in not fully aligning with those who questioned the COVID-19 vaccine’s efficacy from the beginning. Instead, he placed the blame on government and political leaders for the misinformation and lack of transparency that has fueled public distrust.

“My concern is that the unknowns are now more dangerous than the knowns,” Cuomo noted, urging further investigation into adverse vaccine effects.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported that the disgraced former CNN anchor disclosed for the first time that he has been suffering from side effects he attributes to the COVID-19 vaccine.

While Cuomo did not specify the exact nature of his symptoms, he expressed concern about ongoing abnormalities in his health.

Another J6 defendant has tragically taken his own life.

Per the Epoch Times: January 6 defendant David Homol, 55, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head on April 17.

David Homol was arrested by Biden’s FBI Gestapo agents in January 2024 – 3 years after the Capitol protest – and hit with 8 charges.

Homol is at least the 5th January 6 defendant to commit suicide after being indicted by Biden’s Justice Department.

Per the DOJ: David Kennedy Homol, 55, of Umatilla, Florida, was charged in a criminal complaint filed in the District of Columbia with felony offenses of obstruction of an official proceeding, civil disorder, and assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers.

“In addition to the felonies, Homol is charged with several misdemeanor offenses, including knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds, engaging in physical violence in a restricted building or ground, disorderly conduct in a Capitol building, and act of physical violence on Capitol grounds,” the DOJ said in January.

Four other January 6 defendants committed suicide following merciless harassment by Biden’s DOJ. Among these were Matthew Perna, Jord Meachum, Mark Aungst, and Chris Stanton.

The intense scrutiny, public shaming, and legal pressures have created an unbearable environment for those awaiting trial or serving sentences, which contributed to a sense of hopelessness and isolation, ultimately leading to tragic outcomes.

Matthew Perna, a non-violent Trump supporter who was arrested after January 6, committed suicide. He was never accused of violence or vandalism. He walked inside the US Capitol.

Newly released Jan 6 footage shows Matthew Perna calmly walking through the Capitol alongside police.

Matthew Lawrence Perna (June 1984 — Feb. 2022)

22-year-old Nejourde Meacham died on August 28, 2021, two weeks after the Biden regime charged him with four misdemeanor crimes for walking inside the open doors of the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. The young man committed suicide and shot himself in the head.

Mark Aungst (May 1975 — July 2022)

January 6 defendant Mark Aungst, 47, from Williamsport, Pennsylvania committed suicide on July 2022. Aungst pleaded guilty in June 2022 to parading in the Capitol and was facing up to six months in prison and a $5000 fine.

Christopher Stanton Georgia (Died on Jan. 9, 2021)

53-year-old Christopher Stanton Georgia committed suicide after he was charged in the Capitol riot, according to the Fulton County medical examiner. Chris was found with a gunshot wound to the chest and died by suicide

Georgia was charged with attempting to “enter certain property that is, the United States Capitol Grounds, against the will of the United States Capitol Police.”

King Charles Snubbed Prince Harry and Decided NOT To Meet Him After His Son Insisted That Queen Camilla Not Be in the Room: REPORT

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 18:40

Harry, The Duke of Sussex, 39, returned to London yesterday (May 7) to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his charity, the Invictus Games.

He is staying in a hotel because his estranged family could not – or would not – house him in one of the innumerable properties that they own.

None of the ‘working Royals’ are going to make a presence at the celebrations, either.

Read: Prince Harry Goes to London for His Charity Invictus Games’ 10-Year Celebration – But Despite His Reaching Out, King Charles and Prince William Seem To Be Ignoring Him

Yesterday, it was reported that King Charles’ would not meet Prince Harry during his son’s UK trip because he was ‘too busy’.

But today, it arose that this decision came after a round of ‘difficult’ negotiations between the King and the Prince’s aides.

The Post heard royal commentator Charlotte Griffiths, and she states that the monarch’s decision may have been swayed by ‘certain demands’ from Harry – namely, that Queen Camila not be present during the meeting.

New York Post reported:

“’There is some talk that behind the scenes, a lot of negotiating went on’, Griffiths told GB News. ‘I think the reason was because Harry made certain demands about who could be in the room and who couldn’t. Although on the surface it looks like a snub, Harry made it very difficult for his father’.”

Griffiths also said ‘other forces’ – i.e. future King, William the Prince of Wales – could’ve influenced the king’s decision.

“’Maybe other forces were driving Charles’ position on this’, she said. ‘William may have had a thought about how this meeting should be conducted or whether it should be conducted at all’.

‘We know that Charles likes to meet Harry with Camilla in the room, which isn’t always a popular decision’, she continued.”

Harry’s team said a meeting between the estranged father and son ‘will not be possible due to His Majesty’s full program’.

The King is having his weekly audience with United Kingdom Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, and also the first Buckingham Palace garden party of the season – among other previously scheduled engagements.

“On Wednesday, the father of two is expected to give a reading at London’s St Paul’s Cathedral to mark a decade since the inaugural Invictus Games took place in the capital. Actor Damian Lewis, star of “Band of Brothers,” is set to recite the poem ‘Invictus’, by William Ernest Henley, during the service.”

This celebration comes at  a good time for Harry, after his African charity came under heavy PR damage, as you can read in Prince Harry’s Charity in Africa Accused of Widespread Torture and Rape.

Biden Loses His Balance at Top of Air Force One Steps (VIDEO)

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 18:20

Joe Biden on Wednesday lost his balance at the top of the shorter staircase of Air Force One ahead of his trip to Wisconsin.

Biden traveled to Wisconsin to brag about his dumpster fire economy and a $3 billion investment from Microsoft in a new AI data center.

The 81-year-old lost his balance at the top of the staircase. Biden grabbed onto the handrail to stop himself from faceplanting.

Biden’s handlers are doing everything to make sure he doesn’t fall down. He has tripped up the steps to Air Force One several times.

It was recently revealed Biden is sporting ‘boat anchor’ shoes for maximum stability so he doesn’t fall on his face.

Additionally, part of Biden’s new routine is to shuffle out to Marine One while his handlers surround him to hide his feeble state amid reports he can no longer walk solo.

The White House introduced a ‘special routine’ for when Joe Biden departs and returns to the White House on Marine One.

According to a report from Axios, Biden’s advisors are concerned that his stiffened gait is highlighting his old age and feeble state.

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp Signs THREE Major Election Integrity Bills into Law Ahead of 2024 Presidential Election

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 18:00

Governor Brian Kemp made a significant move on Tuesday by signing three pivotal pieces of legislation that aim to reshape Georgia’s election procedures in preparation for the 2024 presidential elections.

The new legislation, House Bill 974, House Bill 1207, and Senate Bill 189, aims to enhance ballot security, voter eligibility verification, and auditing protocols in the battleground state.

House Bill 974, amends election procedures in Georgia primarily concerning the security and auditing of ballots. Here are the key provisions of the bill:

  1. Ballot Security: It mandates that ballots used in optical scan voting systems and ballot marking devices be printed on paper with a visible watermark security feature. This watermark must identify the paper as an official Georgia ballot, ensuring the authenticity while maintaining voter anonymity.
  2. Scanning and Posting of Ballots: The bill requires that all absentee ballots be scanned to create a digital image with a resolution of at least 600 dots per inch. These scanned images are to be maintained in a statewide system, which the Secretary of State is tasked to establish and manage.
  3. Risk-Limiting Audits: It expands the types of contests subject to risk-limiting audits, which use statistical methods to ensure the accuracy of election outcomes. The law defines the parameters for these audits, including the maximum statistical probability that an incorrect outcome could go undetected.
  4. Pilot Program for Auditing Using Optical Character Recognition: A pilot program is to be created to audit paper ballots using optical character recognition technology. This audit will focus on verifying the human-readable text on ballots, excluding any machine-readable codes like QR codes.
  5. Public Transparency: The bill also includes provisions to enhance transparency, requiring that audit processes be conducted in public view and that details of the audits be made available to the public promptly.

House Bill 1207 introduces several changes to election procedures and integrity. Here’s a summary of the key provisions:

  1. U.S. Citizenship Requirement: The bill stipulates that anyone employed or retained by a county election superintendent to perform election-related duties must be a U.S. citizen.
  2. Reopening Candidate Qualifying: If no candidates qualify during the initial period for nonpartisan or partisan elections, the qualifying period will be reopened to allow more candidates to register.
  3. Ballot Proofing and Accuracy: It introduces requirements for ballot proofing to ensure the accuracy of ballots. Candidates or their agents will be able to review and verify the draft versions of the ballots before they are finalized.
  4. Poll Watchers’ Access and Regulations: The bill defines and regulates the roles and behaviors of poll watchers, ensuring they have access to observe the election process without interfering.
  5. Protections Against Election Interference: The bill sets out specific criminal offenses related to election interference, such as preventing officials from performing their duties or tampering with voting equipment, with severe penalties for violations.
  6. Adjustments to Voting Equipment: Provisions are made for the number of voting booths or systems based on expected turnout and other factors, ensuring adequate equipment is available for elections.
  7. Overall Integrity and Conduct of Elections: Several other adjustments and clarifications aim to improve the integrity and conduct of the electoral process, including handling of optical scanning voting systems and provisions against election-related violence.

Senate Bill 189 primarily focuses on amending election and voting procedures. Key provisions include:

  1. Removal of the Secretary of State from the State Election Board: The Secretary of State will become a non-voting ex officio member of the board.
  2. Conflict of Interest Rules: The bill introduces stricter conflict of interest rules for state and local election officers, especially regarding any business dealings with companies that provide voting equipment or services related to ballot tabulation.
  3. Ballot Access: It includes provisions to facilitate ballot access for certain political parties or political bodies, particularly in nominating presidential electors.
  4. Residency and Voter Challenges: The bill revises rules concerning residency determination for voting purposes and the procedures for challenging a voter’s eligibility.
  5. Tabulation of Ballots: It mandates that physical paper ballots, rather than any electronic or machine-generated codes, be used for vote tabulation and recounts. It also allows certain smaller elections to use manually marked paper ballots.
  6. Absentee Ballots: The bill specifies procedures for handling and tabulating absentee ballots, including earlier processing times and enhanced security measures.
  7. High-Resolution Ballot Scans: A pilot program will be established to audit paper ballots using optical character recognition technology, ensuring audits are based on the human-readable parts of the ballot rather than any machine-readable codes.
  8. Election Date Adjustments: Adjustments are made to the timing of certain special elections, ensuring they do not coincide with statewide primaries or general elections unless completely separated in their conduct.

Of course, the lawless Democrats are not happy with these three laws, which aim to bolster the security of our elections.

AP reported:

Fair Fight Action, a voting rights group founded by former Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, slammed the signing of SB 189, calling the measure a “voter suppression bill that emboldens right-wing activists in their efforts to kick Black and brown voters off the rolls.”

“By signing SB 189 to become law, Brian Kemp delivered a gift to MAGA election deniers,” the group said in a statement.

Andrea Young, executive director of the ACLU of Georgia, called the bill a “step back for voters’ rights and voting access.”

“We are committed to protecting Georgia voters and will see the governor in court,” she said in a statement.

An email to a spokesman for the governor’s office, Garrison Douglas, was not immediately returned.

Watch: CNN Host Calls Out Joe Biden for ‘Being All Over the Map” on Abortion

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 17:40

CNN’s Jake Tapper called out President Joe Biden’s ever-changing position on the issue of abortion.

In an interview that aired Sunday with Biden campaign co-chair Mitch Landrieu, Tapper questioned whether Biden’s shifting stance on abortion over his political career will be harmful to his campaign.

Tapper characterized Biden’s position on abortion as “all over the map” and asked whether it undermines support from him from pro-choice advocates.

“Do you think his own long, complicated history on this issue — do you think it muddies his message, and undermines the contrast with Donald Trump?” Tapper asked.

Landrieu at first criticized how Trump has handled the abortion issue, but then explained how Biden’s pro-choice stance is stronger than ever.

“Since his presidency, he has been very strong in his support of a very simple notion: that he trusts women to make decisions about their reproductive health,” Landrieu said.

To Tapper’s point, Biden’s position on abortion has been inconsistent throughout his career.

In 1974, then freshman Senator Biden said that he didn’t like the Supreme Court’s decision on abortion.

“I think it went too far. I don’t think that a woman has the sole right to say what should happen to her body,” the Washingtonian reported in 1974.

In 2006, Biden called himself “the odd man out” in the Democratic Paty on the abortion issue, according to CNN.

“I do not view abortion as a choice and a right. I think it’s always a tragedy, and I think that it should be rare and safe, and I think we should be focusing on how to limit the number of abortions.’ Biden said.

Just this year, Biden said that he’s “never been supportive of, you know, ‘It’s my body, I can do what I want with it,” the New Yorker reported.

Yet, since his inauguration in 2021, Biden has been anything but a sideline spectator on the issue.

In July 2022, just a few weeks after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Biden signed an executive order aimed at protecting access to abortion services.

CNN reported that the “executive order attempts to safeguard access to medication abortion and emergency contraception, protect patient privacy, launch public education efforts as well as bolster the security of and the legal options available to those seeking and providing abortion services.”

In June 2023, Biden denounced abortion restrictions in Republican-governed states, arguing that the states were depriving women of “basic health care,” according to the New York Times.

“In his 50+ years in politics … Biden has been all over the map on abortion,” says CNN’s Jake Tapper.

— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) May 5, 2024

Just this year, in his State of the Union address, Biden said, “if you, the American people, send me a Congress that supports the right to choose, I promise you I will restore Roe v. Wade as the law of the land again,” Huffpost reported.

It seems like Biden’s position on abortion corresponds to that of his base. Instead of having an independent opinion based on what he believes, he’s believing what he thinks will get him elected.

Tapper is right to bring up Biden’s tepidity on the issue. There is perhaps no issue that Biden has flipped back and forth over in his career more than abortion.

What Biden represents is an opinion that is often held on the left, particularly among left-leaning legal scholars: the idea that codified laws are living, constantly evolving instruments.

It’s in stark contrast to the position taken by the mainstream right, who take an originalist perspective on laws. They argue, according to the National Constitution Center, that laws should be interpreted with the understanding of those who wrote them, not those who are reading them.

The idea of the left is that the U.S. Constitution should change over time to accommodate how society’s view on key issues changes.  This all happens without any sort of formal amendment process, and is instead implemented by enlightened members of the judiciary.

As many people are aware, the Constitution makes no mention of abortion in its text.  Rather, the theory of the “living constitution” was utilized by the Supreme Court to permit them to bring the Constitution into the modern age.

David Strauss, a professor of law at the University of Chicago Law School, defined a living constitution as “one that evolves, changes over time, and adapts to new circumstances, without being formally amended.”

This idea that the Constitution can change over time and adapt to new circumstances has been the foundation of Supreme Court decisions that have written rights into the Constitution based on what the Court wants it to say.

This philosophy is concerning, to say the least.

For the left and “living constitutionalists,” no constitutional right is safe.  To them, the government is the arbiter of what rights should and should not be guaranteed.

To them, the law is subject to their will.  If a provision of the law is disharmonious with their will, they will simply change it.

The core issue with that philosophy is, at the end of the day, the letter of the law means nothing more than what judges think it ought to mean, irrespective of what it says.

That’s why overturning Roe v. Wade was the correct jurisprudential decision, even if it was not popular.  Nothing in the Constitution guarantees anyone the right to have an abortion.

The Constitution was founded on the principle that there are some rights so sacred, so worth protecting, that citizens can only be deprived of them when afforded due process.

And no right is greater than that of the right to life.  Unlike the left, many on the right believe that rights come from God, not government, and that they cannot be changed just because some judges feel like they should.

That’s why conservatives have so consistently opposed abortion. Sure, you can deprive someone of life with due process.  But how can you give a baby in the womb due process?

The left and right can, and do, disagree on many issues. From immigration and taxes to welfare and energy, all of these debates have their place.

But when it comes to abortion, and the deprivation of the right to life, this is something that we really should all be able to agree on. After all, if we don’t protect the right to life of innocent children, what is worth protecting?

Does any other issue matter if we can kill our most vulnerable citizens?

Joe Biden’s America.

An illegal alien from Guatemala who entered the US on Joe Biden’s open border invitation in January was arrested on Saturday for the kidnap of a minor to sexually assault them.

Marvin Dionel Perez Lopez was arrested in Palm Beach County, Florida on Saturday. He illegally crossed the US border in January.

Perez Lopez was released by Border Patrol and was given a court date for some time in 2027!

“Through the investigation, detectives learned that Perez Lopez left Guatemala in early January, crossed through Mexico, turned himself in to Border Patrol, was given a court date for some time in 2027 and was released,” the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.

Perez Lopez is being held in the Palm Beach County jail on no bond.

Illegal Alien Who Murdered Laken Riley Indicted By Grand Jury, Accused of Being a “Peeping Tom”

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 17:00

A grand jury indicted the illegal alien who brutally murdered 22-year-old nursing student Laken Riley.

22-year-old Laken Riley, a University of Georgia student, was recently murdered by a Venezuelan illegal.

The illegal alien who murdered Laken Riley crossed into the US on Biden’s open border invitation.

According to an affidavit unsealed, the barbaric savage who murdered Laken Riley “disfigured her skull.”

Joe Biden hesitated even to say Laken Riley’s name and he apologized for calling her killer an “illegal immigrant.”

Jose Ibarra, the 26-year-old illegal from Venezuela, was indicted on 10 counts. He was also accused of being a “peeping Tom” according to the indictment.

“The suspect is also accused of going to an apartment on UGA’s “University Village Housing Building ‘S,'” where he “peeped through” a window and “spied upon” a university staff member on the same day he allegedly killed Riley, the indictment alleges.” Fox News reported.

Fox News reported:

A Georgia grand jury on Tuesday indicted Jose Ibarra, the suspect charged in Augusta University student Laken Riley’s murder, on 10 counts, court documents show.

Ibarra, a 26-year-old illegal immigrant from Venezuela, is accused of killing Riley, a 22-year-old nursing student, while she was out for a run along dirt trails on the University of Georgia campus in Athens on Feb. 22.

The grand jury indicted Ibarra on counts of malice murder, two counts of kidnapping with bodily injury, two counts of aggravated assault with intent to rape, two counts of aggravated battery, obstructing or hindering a person from making a 911 call, tampering with evidence and being a “peeping Tom.”

Ibarra is accused of causing Riley’s death by inflicting blunt-force trauma to her head and “asphyxiating her in a manner unknown to jurors,” the indictment states.

“GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!” – President Trump Pokes “Conflicted” Judge Merchan Attacks Democrat “THUGS” on Sophisticated Hit Job to Ruin Him and Steal His Rights

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 16:45
President Trump sits in crooked Judge Merchan’s courtroom in New York City on Monday May 6, 2024

President Trump on Wednesday posted a new complaint on Truth Social against the Democrat Biden-linked attorneys who are holding him in court on bogus lawfare charges to prevent him from campaigning for president.

This is unlike anything we’ve ever seen in US history.

The Democrats are not only attempting to destroy Trump’s reputation and ruin him financially, they are wasting his time so he cannot speak to the people of America.

And the fake news legacy media outlets are ALL supporting this historic abuse.

Crooked Judge Juan Merchan has ordered President Trump NOT to speak out in his defense against the outlandish coordinated attacks against him.  Merchan threatened to put the former president in prison for violating his gag order.

Today Trump poked this crooked judge.  Good for President Trump!

Where is the outrage?

President Trump: It is a really bad feeling to have your Constitutional Right to Free Speech, such a big part of life in our Country, so unfairly taken from you, especially when all of the sleazebags, lowlifes, and grifters that you oppose are allowed to say absolutely anything that they want. It is hard to sit back and listen to lies and false statements be made against you knowing that if you respond, even in the most modest fashion, you are told by a Corrupt and Highly Conflicted Judge that you will be PUT IN PRISON, maybe for a long period of time. This Fascist mindset is all coming from D.C. It is a sophisticated hit job on Crooked Joe Biden’s Political Opponent, ME!. Judges Engoron and Kaplan, also of New York, are equally Corrupt, only in different ways. What these THUGS are doing is AN ATTACK ON THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, AND OUR ONCE GREAT NATION ITSELF. OUR FIRST AMENDMENT MUST STAND, FREE AND STRONG. “GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!’

Brian Mast Absolutely Levels Nasty Code Pink When Asked About Hamas Ceasefire Deal: “I Think Israel Should Go in There and Kick the Sh*t Out of Them” (Video)

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 16:30
Image: screenshot @CodePink/X

Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) was not taking it from the nasty hags at Code Pink when they ambushed him about the proposed cease-fire deal with Hamas terrorists.

The “anti-war” group was founded in 2002 to oppose the U.S. liberation of Iraq from tyrant Saddam Hussein and has spend more than 20 years siding with radicals.

The Gateway Pundit reported on the group’s endorsement of the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel on October 7.

Code Pink co-founder Susie Benjamin agreed.

Benjamin ambushed Mast on Tuesday and asked, “Now that Hamas has agreed to a cease-fire, do you think Israel should agree to a cease-fire?”

Mast did not hold back.

“I think Israel should go in there and kick the sh** out of them…just absolutely destroy them…their infrastructure…level anything that they touch,” Mast replied. “Clear enough?”

The harpy continued, “Congressman, the world is calling for a cease-fire….”

Mast cut her off, “Anybody in the world is wrong calling for…”

“You used to say Hamas won’t agree to a cease-fire,” Benjamin continued. “Hamas has just agreed.  It was a proposal put forward by Egypt, Qatar, you know, CIA Director William Burns has been there negotiating, and Hamas agreed to it.”

Mast fired back, “You know what, it there’s an American held, or somebody else being held, there should be every expectation that Americans can come and kill them as well. It there’s an American being held, we should go kill the people holding them.”

Middle East Charities Funding Terrorism

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 16:00

Within weeks of the Hamas attack on Israel, charities aligned with Hamas had already received $260 million in donations.

Over the years, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Houthis, and other Islamic extremist groups have relied on Iran, known as the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, for financial support. They employ various illicit means, including kidnapping for ransom, human trafficking, drug trafficking, and extortion, to generate funds. Additionally, Hamas benefits significantly from funding through charitable organizations, some of which are led by Hamas members or supporters. Moreover, they receive financial backing from development grants offered by Western NGOs and governments.

Since the 1980s, Islamic extremist groups have exploited the charitable sector for funding, with registered charities and nonprofit organizations in the US and UK channeling funds to extremism in various countries. The UK’s Commission for Countering Extremism found that Islamist groups took advantage of COVID-19 lockdowns and aid to expand their networks, while Western countries redirected resources from counterterrorism efforts to COVID relief.

Support is sometimes indirect, with Western-based charities serving as conduits, redirecting aid money to terrorists. Another avenue for funding is through educational, health, or other organizations under Hamas control. These sources pose challenges for authorities as they often dissolve, change names, reopen, and resume funneling money. Additionally, funds are frequently transmitted through registered banks in masked transactions or via unregistered banks or cash.

Some of the charities accused of funding terrorism include Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW), KinderUSA, and Human Appeal. IRW, which operates in 40 countries as a humanitarian organization, has been removed from the charities pages of numerous global media outlets, and banks like HSBC have closed its accounts. In 2020, the EU Parliament discovered links between IRW and Islamic terrorist organizations. Consequently, IRW has been banned in Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Russia, and Bangladesh. Senior members of IRW have posted antisemitic content on Facebook, as well as support for Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Despite these allegations, the UN has continued to fund Islamic Relief.

Many charities currently supporting terrorists were originally established to fund the Mujahideen, who fought to expel the Soviets from Afghanistan. Following the Soviet withdrawal in 1989, Afghanistan plunged into civil war, marked by clashes between various Mujahideen factions and the collapse of central authority. Amid this instability, some Mujahideen factions transformed into or aligned with terrorist organizations like al-Qaeda and the Taliban. Notably, prominent Qataris have been identified by the US Treasury for aiding the Taliban, al-Qaeda, and the Muslim Brotherhood. Qatari charities have also raised tens of millions of dollars for Hamas over the past two decades.

Americans, whether knowingly or unknowingly, have also contributed funds to Al-Qaeda, with some of these transactions being processed through money service businesses (MSBs). Individuals in the United States have been arrested for providing financial support to Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), a terrorist group linked to Al-Qaeda, through charitable donations intended to aid widows and orphans. Additionally, Americans have faced indictments for transferring cryptocurrency to a terrorist group known as al-Nusra Front (ANF), which operated in Syria and Lebanon.

Terrorist financing has evolved from exploiting legitimate charities and establishing fraudulent ones to leveraging various online funding methods, including crowdfunding and online fundraisers. These groups also seek financial support from donors, whether knowingly or unknowingly, who contribute to their cause. Following a Hamas attack on Israel last October, supporters worldwide quickly established crowdfunding platforms to solicit charitable or humanitarian donations for Gaza. The US Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an independent inter-governmental body combating money laundering and terrorist financing, has found evidence of terrorist groups such as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and Al-Qaeda utilizing crowdfunding.

Terrorist organizations have increasingly turned to cryptocurrency and Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs) to transfer funds anonymously across international borders. The US Treasury Department has designated a Gaza-based VASP called Buy Cash Money and Money Transfer Company, which has been found to fund Hamas and other terrorist groups.

To counter terrorism funding, the Department of Justice and the FBI established the Financial Review Group (FRG), an inter-agency organization that includes the CIA, DEA, elements of the Treasury Department, and others. The FRG has frozen millions of dollars flowing to various terrorist-linked charities, including Al-Barakaat, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, the Global Relief Foundation, and the Benevolence International Foundation. Additionally, numerous individuals associated with these organizations and their funding have been arrested.

In the United States, Canada, the UK, and the European Union, Hamas is designated as a terrorist organization, making funding Hamas a criminal offense. Authorities have the power to shut down organizations that raise money for Hamas and other designated terrorist groups. These regulations should apply to any organization supporting designated terrorist groups. By this reasoning, the UN could be implicated for its support of Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW). Similarly, one could argue that the Biden administration and other governments are also complicit for providing humanitarian aid to Gaza, which flows directly to Hamas.

Biden Ignores Reporter Shouting Questions About His Latest Shakedown Scandal (VIDEO)

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 15:45

Joe Biden on Wednesday departed the White House en route to Wisconsin to deliver remarks on his dumpster fire economy.

Biden ignored reporters shouting questions about his latest impeachable scandal as he shuffled across the South Lawn.

According to Politico: Joe Biden is holding up shipments of two Boeing-made precision bombs to send a political message to Israel.

This is the first time Biden has withheld weapons to Israel since the October 7 terrorist attack.

“The U.S. has yet to sign off on a pending sale of Boeing’s Joint Direct Attack Munitions — both the munitions and kits that convert them to smart weapons — and Small Diameter Bombs, according to six industry and congressional sources with knowledge of the discussions.” – Politico reported.

“While the Biden administration has not formally denied the potential sale, it is essentially taking action through inaction — holding off on approvals and other aspects of the weapons transfer process — to send a message to Israel, a U.S. administration official familiar with the process told POLITICO. The official, along with others, was granted anonymity to discuss sensitive internal deliberations.” – Politico reported.

Russian Missiles and Drones Pound Ukraine’s Power Plants in Heaviest Strike in Weeks – More Than Half of Kiev’s Energy Infrastructure Has Been Destroyed

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 15:15

On the ground, Russian Federation forces keep advancing – just this week, they took control of the settlements of Soloviove and Kislovka in Donetsk region and Kotliarivka and Novokalinovo further north in the Kharkov region.

In the meantime, Ukraine keeps getting pounded by artillery and airstrikes, with the attacks lately focusing on power plants.

Overnight, Russia launched no less than 55 missiles and 21 Geranium (Shahed) drones, the Ukrainian air force said.

Associated Press reported:

“Russian forces unleashed a nighttime barrage of more than 50 cruise missiles and explosive drones at Ukraine’s power grid Wednesday, targeting a wide area in what President Volodymyr Zelensky called a ‘massive’ attack on the day the country celebrates the defeat of Nazism in World War II.”

The bombardment struck seven Ukrainian regions, including the Kyiv area, damaging the rail network.

“Russia has repeatedly pounded Ukraine’s energy infrastructure during the war that is stretching into its third year and has claimed thousands of lives. By taking out the power, the Kremlin’s forces aim to rob Ukrainian manufacturing of its energy supply, especially military plants, and crush public morale.”

Russian attacks have so far damaged nearly half of Ukraine’s power infrastructure since the start of the war. The mass strikes also drain Ukrainian air defenses of ammunition.

“Russia pummeled Ukraine’s energy infrastructure during the ‘blackout winter’ of 2022-23. In March, it launched a new wave of attacks, one of which completely destroyed the Trypilska power plant near Kyiv, one of the country’s biggest.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has framed the attacks as retaliation for Ukrainian long-range strikes on Russian oil refineries. On Wednesday, a Ukrainian attack hit an oil terminal, injuring five workers and starting a fire, Russia-appointed authorities in the partially occupied Luhansk region said.”

Russian strikes have become less frequent in recent weeks, as Moscow is stockpiling resources for a major battlefield offensive that is expected to come within weeks.

“National electrical grid operator Ukrenergo said facilities were hit in the Vinnytsia, Zaporizhzhia, Kirovohrad, Poltava and Ivano-Frankivsk regions.”

CNN Legal Analyst on Stormy Daniels: “Her Responses Were Disastrous” (Video)

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 15:00
CNN legal analyst Elie Honig calls Stormy Daniell’s testimony “a disaster.”

Stormy Daniels’s testimony on Tuesday was such an absolute disaster that even CNN was forced to admit it.

CNN legal analyst Elie Honig said that, although Daniels’ testimony about a sexual encounter with Trump in a hotel room in 2006 was “plausible,” her responses while under cross-examination by Trump’s legal team called her credibility into question.

Referring to the moment Daniels admitted she hates President Trump, Honig said, “Her responses were disastrous.”

Adding, “That’s a big deal.”

“When the witness hates the person whose liberty is at stake, that’s a big damn deal!”

“And she’s putting out tweets, fantasizing about him being in jail. That really undermines the credibility.”

Honig also referenced Daniels’s comment that she has no intention of paying court-ordered legal fees to Trump after her failed defamation case against him was tossed out.

Daniels has said on social media she “will go to jail” before she has to “pay a penny.”

“The fact that she owes him $500,000 by order of a court, owes Donald Trump a half million dollars, and said, ‘I will never pay him. I will defy a court order,’ the defense is gonna say, ‘She’s willing to defy a court order. She’s not willing to respect an order from a judge. Why is she gonna respect this oath she took?’ So, I thought it went quite poorly on cross-exam.”

Expelled Students Win $1 Million for ‘Blackface’ that Wasn’t Blackface

Wed, 05/08/2024 - 14:45

Verdict puts schools on notice to provide ‘fair procedures’ in disciplinary actions

An announcement from a prominent legal team reveals that a $1 million verdict in a fight over the alleged wrongful expulsion of two students from St. Francis High School in California means that schools now are on notice to provide “fair procedures” to students in disciplinary actions.

“This case is significant not only for our clients but for its groundbreaking effect on all private high schools in California, which are now legally required to provide fair procedure to students before punishing or expelling them,” charged Krista Boughman, of the Dhillon Law Group that fought the case.

“The jury rightly confirmed that St. Francis High School’s procedures were unfair to our clients and that the school is not above the law.”

The fight had an odd origination.

The legal team said the two students, in solidarity with a friend who was instructed by a doctor to use an acne-fighting face mask, also wore the medication.

A photograph was taken. Then several years later, that surfaced, and school officials charged they were in “blackface.”

The legal team noted, “The students, who were minors at the time, became the center of a controversy due to a photograph of them wearing green acne facemasks. The photo, which was taken three years earlier, was misinterpreted by the school as ‘blackface’ in June 2020, amidst heightened racial tensions and unrelated racist incidents within the school community. St. Francis expelled the boys within 24 hours, without considering their evidence or offering any hearing.”

The Dhillon team explained that protections previously offered to university students in the state now, because of the precedent, are required for high-school students.

“The jury’s verdict finally cleared our clients’ names after four long years of repeated personal attacks from St. Francis High School. Schools are supposed to protect and nurture children, not sacrifice them when it is convenient for public relations purposes,” said Dhillon Law Group counsel, Karin Sweigart.

The students have been identified in reports only as H.H. and A.H.

The dispute developed just as the nation was in an uproar, and charges of racism were everywhere, following the death of George Floyd.

The school initially told the family’s lawyer, “Your clients, or their friends, are responsible for the posting of the photograph on social media and the resultant publicity and unfortunate consequences.”

The boys’ family, in a statement, said the fight was over the school’s assumption of their guilt “without giving a child the opportunity to show their innocence.”

“We would never wish the pain, humiliation, and suffering St. Francis has inflicted on our families on anyone, but we are thankful that the jury has spoken, and vindicated our boys, and forced St. Francis to finally take responsibility for their repeated personal attacks on the boys.”
