Note, the GOP isn’t targeting abortion providers, they’re blocking Title X funds for any healthcare provider if they even speak with their patients about abortion.

Think about that for a second, the party of “limited government” is trying to restrict what healthcare providers can and can’t say to their patients.

Somethings going to leak this afternoon, they tell me, that perhaps Trump paid a woman to have an abortion during the campaign. I don’t know.

But hey, the end justifies the means.

Meaning a woman he might have been having sex with before his 2016 run?

I don’t know, they tell me during the campaign. First trimester abortion or something like that.

Not sure, something about payments made by Trumps lawyer.

Personally, I’m opposed to abortion, but it should be left up to the individual to make that decision.

Farm Bill fails 198-213. 30 members of the Freedom Caucus voted against the bill. In case you weren’t already aware, Paul Ryan sucks at his job.

At least he had him on a leash. That’s the responsible thing to do.

But we offered thoughts and prayers after Parkland. I thought that was supposed to be good enough!

“Y’all been sending thoughts and prayers for two freaking decades now,” tweeted Rep. Gene Wu, who represents the Gulfton area. “Time to try something new.”

I mean if decades of prayers haven’t stopped school shootings then God either doesn’t exist or the folks doing the praying are awful at it.

Or maybe the answer to our prayers is common sense gun reform and the morons at the NRA are too stupid to realize it.

Common sense like getting rid of gun-free zones that makes a crazy fu-k feel comfortable enough to do stuff like this knowing he’s the only one armed on campus? That common sense change in policy? Otherwise, no more restrictions of any kind. If the local jewelry store can have an armed guard, then so can every school in America. Every one.

Namcy Pelosi says MS-13 terrorists have their own “Spark of Divinity.” And y’all wonder why you all will lose again – badly – in November.

First of all, who the hell is this “y’all” of which you speak? I’m not even a registered Democrat, I just don’t support a BATSHIT-crazy, nationalistic Republican party. I voted for W both times so I am hardly a liberal.

It is funny how people like you focus so much on Nancy Pelosi. I mean if it’s not her it is something about Maxine Waters and I seriously doubt you could point to South Central LA on a blank map of California.

Keep on Panderin’ for those votes, Nancy!!! She just made an in-kind contribution to TGM’s campaign! Love it!! Defend the undefendable! Maybe have some MS-13 over for lunch at yor place in San Fran, Namcy! This tag line just wrote itself!!!! “Spark of Divinity”, you say?? ‘Cept if you commit murder in utero….

If you live south and east of a line that roughly crosses Georgia from Cuthbert to Clarkes Hill Reservoir then it might surprise you that you live in a “constitution-free zone”. A federal agency can legally enter your property without consent or a warrant (though not your “dwelling”). They can and do setup checkpoints demanding identification, authorized to pull you over without cause, and even legally allowed to racially profile in these stops. Which agency? Why the Customs and Border Protection Bureau of course. Granted, most of this occurs within 100 miles of the Mexican border but with this article… Read more »

This is almost as embarrassing as Obama’s Nobel prize he received the first week he was in office…

Benevolus
Benevolus

Ah yes. A lovely reminder of a more humble, eloquent, and competent leader: “Obama said he was “surprised” and “deeply humbled” by the award. In remarks given at the White House Rose Garden on the day of the announcement, Obama stated, “I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments but rather an affirmation of American leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations.”[15] “Throughout history, the Nobel Peace Prize has not just been used to honor specific achievement; it’s also been used as a means to give momentum to a set of causes,”… Read more »

If/when the FBI or Mueller or anyone else charges anyone with something, that person will get to see the evidence against them. If an investigation is needed, that would be the time and venue to explore that. Until then, this is all just P/R posturing. Or paranoia. Or dementia. Or delusion.

He is in trouble. That IG report is going to skewer him. Which communist party candidate for president did Brennan vote for?

Noway, I’m going to waive around my Justice Department credentials for just a second. I would hope you’ll give my response a little more credence than whoever that random Gateway Pundit blogger is. The use of informants in counter-intelligence investigations is completely normal and completely legal. Moreover, the mere fact that someone was offering information on the campaign to the FBI, CIA, or any other intelligence agency does not, in and of itself, mean that the informant was “planted” in the campaign. Two things should be particularly concerning. For Trump and his Administration – if informants are passing along information… Read more »

Much like how rock stars have t-shirts that outline their current tour , like, maybe, “Metallica 2002”. And two columns on the back listi g the cities, right? Well, here’s one: “Dabury 2018”. And two rows of names on the back. Left row: Hillary, Bill, Chelsea, Lynch and Holder. Right side: Brennan, Clapper, McCabe, Comey, Mueller. Sales to begin forthwith!

I think we should start with some common-sense regulations!
– Require would-be drivers to take an examination to demonstrate they are capable of responsibly operating a motor vehicle
– Require those wishing to operate a motor vehicle to maintain liability insurance to provide coverage for folks who might get injured as a result of a driver’s negligent or intentional actions.

Counterpoint: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/feb/23/dana-loesch-women-gun-reform-rapists Women are much more likely to be fatally hurt by a gun than saved by one. Women who live in abusive situations are considered at grave risk when a gun is in the home – no matter who owns it – and women killed by their partners are more likely to be murdered with a gun than all other weapons combined. (Loesch and the NRA know this, of course, yet have lobbied for years against measures that would keep guns out of abusers’ hands.) This is especially important considering that the vast majority of sexual assaults aren’t committed… Read more »
