Huh! Millennials are fairly anti-abortion, which I found sort of amazing.

JM Hanes said this would be a big election issue for the democrats.

Sure enough, paid advertising on Twitter:

Alabama just passed a near-total abortion ban.

No exceptions for rape or incest.

Doctors could face 99 years in prison for providing abortions.

This is a war on women, and it’s time to fight like hell. Will you chip in to help guarantee my spot on the debate stage?

Jane

I think people are smarter than that MM. The dems will try, but I suspect they will fail.

Jane,

Dealing with the hysteria over global warming, I am not so sure.

What is ignored in this discussion was that when Roe was decided, birth control wasn't widely available except for condoms.

Now there are pills, morning after pills, tubal ligation, implants, etc. not to mention that abstinence is always effective.

I also am horrified at late-term abortions and the specter of infanticide if the child survives the procedure, along with people CHEERING over this.

Just rambling with no point. I do think they will try to make it an issue.

How you know Barr is going to be a great AG:


James Comey
‏Verified account @Comey

The AG should stop sliming his own Department. If there are bad facts, show us, or search for them professionally and then tell us what you found. An AG must act like the leader of the Department of Justice, an organization based on truth. Donald Trump has enough spokespeople.

Melinda

Overall, still falling waaaayyy short of a governing majority.

http://indiana.gop/news/indiana-gop-mayor-buttigieg-release-hidden-police-tapes-today

Well, this is interesting. 7 years ago the newly-elected mayor of South Bend, Pete Buttigieg, fired the city's first black police chief.

The firing has been in litigation for 7 years and there are tapes which are evidence, and Buttigieg has refused to release them. A court just ordered he do so.

There's a yuge 'pro-choice' rally back in town this afternoon and it's getting tons of play on my FB page, as I have many friends who are marked as attending.

Jane, ask yourself why we get this wave of anti-abortion legislation now? Eight states this year. All tilting toward the extreme to various degrees. All perfectly timed to be a presidential election issue.

I know it’s one of those “always on” issues, but still.

GOPe encouraging/permitting these bills in order to create anti-Trump energy? Would they take it that far? How couldn’t they? Could they possibly win by primarying Trump? I don’t see it.

Melinda

Clarice's link last night to breathless Jim Hoft signalling that Steele's Dossier "may" have been tampered with makes me wonder if there was a touch of barium on each of the versions to trace who was pushing which one, and when. Wouldn't THAT be a hoot.

Jack is Back!

I'd take up the Taoiseach's counteroffer. Dromoland Castle is nice and the food, when I have been there, is excellent. They will make sure DJT's steak is as black and crispy just as he likes them:)

"Breakfast in Doonbeg" sounds like the title to a W. B. Yeats poem. Greg Norman designed the course and it and Old Head are two of my favorites. Never played it when it was under Trump control.

Off soon to CT and Frederick's boat race. Staying overnight and back Sunday. Behave!

Melinda,

This morning I see why Dawson Fields thinks Comey was a white hat. Since I don't have any idea of what's going on, I will post the link here and people can take a look:

Joe Biden is Hillary all over again ...

- Low energy
- Small number of people at events
- Poor health
- Strange rambling word salads
- Super inflated poll numbers by liberal pollsters
- Suspicious dealings with foreign governments
- Serial liar
- Phony

Beasts of England

Here's one of the Dawson tweets from the link:

'The white hats at DOJ have been fighting against the CIA since the 1980s. Trump's candidacy was the opportunity to draw the CIA into an ambush & catch them in a crossfire. Barr, Mueller, Comey, Wray, Rosenstein, Giuliani, and many more have been working on this case for 30+ years.'

Needs moar cowbell. 😐

Melinda

He wrapped that bit of logic, here.

It's compelling, but can fall apart quickly if any of his early "What if?"s proves false. I can't rule it out but I'm not going to make it the base for everything to be "Therefore it's true!". I'll just flatten my curve of possibilities to include it inside the std dev instead of outside of it.

If Fields is right about Comey & Trump then he should start his own "method" acting school because he is even better than Brando or Newman.

Jane

"GOPe encouraging/permitting these bills in order to create anti-Trump energy? "

AB,

Abortion always comes up. I think what is different this time is that a lot more people oppose third (and sometimes second) trimester abortion. And when you think about it, how long does it take to figure out you are pregnant?

And I think it is also a reaction to the VA governor suggesting you can look at your baby after born and then decide whether to murder him.

Plus I don't think Trump is anti- abortion, is he? Perhaps late term, but not for "rape, incest, life of the mother".

I just don't think it's a winning issue. Of course it will get some people out to vote, but probably on both sides.

Narciso79

The answer is no:

The whole Steele submission was an IQ test and kavalec (now on her way to tirana) had doubts but she still sent it to laycock who ran the eurasian branch of counter intel

She and her husband were told this is a rare condition,so a committee of doctors will review his case.
One week from today,she will be the maid of honor at her sister's wedding. She decided that her little boy will stay home with her husband. She will be surrounded by support and love,because the whole family will be there,uncles,aunts and cousins.

Koepke's a great story if anyone was paying attention, Iggy. I go to reliable sports boards and they don't even have a thread for it. You, JiB and I are the only ones even talking about it.

She was a filthy tobacco lawyer when she started out with boies the ambulance chasers firm, and her daddy was part of the real hellfire club, plus her tridelt deal with the devil doesn't seem to be panning out

The Infamous Ignatz

--But it also explains (to me) the logic behind exception for the life of the mother but not for rape or incest. If the unborn child is a person, balancing one life against another may be medically inevitable. But no person in our society is ever executed for being the product of rape or incest, or even for committing those crimes.-

I hope this isn't insulting, but that never occurred to someone as intelligent as you before, TM?
Have you actually bought the idea the pro life position is really about dressing women up like maroon Mennonites or punishing women who refuse to make men a sammich?

It has ALWAYS been about what seems to me the undeniable personhood of a fetus. The mental gymnastics, tortured logic, suppression of human compassion, magical thinking, simple denial of reality here in the real world and and profound selfishness and self indulgence have ALWAYS been on the pro death side. That ugly truth is why the "right" rests on the most profoundly evil and poorly reasoned legal ruling in the court's history.
As appalling as Dredd Scott and Plessey were, they rested on a firmer footing of bad law and bad precedent than the whole cloth carnage of Roe. It not only did maximum violence to millions of innocent lives but maximum violence to the constitution and judicial restraint.

Leave it to the unspeakable Democrats to find a sin even more profound to replace the nation's original one that they so valiantly and violently championed for so long. And not coincidentally, as with all things the Dems seem to champion, it is their pet race that they claim to always be shielding from someone elses supposed aggression that is the primary beneficiary of their violence and preoccupation with ruling over others and death.

Marlene

Iggy,his name is Desmond.

The Infamous Ignatz

Thanks Marlene. I will pray for him and ask others too as well.

The Infamous Ignatz

And the reasoning of my 10:54 has nothing to do with religion or God or anything else spiritual or divine, except maybe the basic premise of the right to life, which Dems seem increasingly to consider an old, tired, historical artifact created by dead white racists.

That reasoning is why a pronounced atheist but uncommonly honest leftist like Christopher Hitchens could be pro life.
He seems to have been very uncommon indeed.
