Over the past few years, the Democratic Party has allowed itself to be taken over by a far-left fringe that operates almost entirely on emotions. That’s why their stances on various issues have no intellectual consistency: their principles shift radically, depending on whatever it is they want at the moment. Because of this, they’ve destroyed many of their own arguments. When they bring up some well-worn justification for whatever issue they’re defending, it’s now easy to throw one of their other stances at them that completely negates it.
For instance, all of a sudden, all they care about is the right to abortion. They think this will be a winning issue with women voters, so they’re using the old trope of Republicans waging a “war on women” and wanting to take away a “woman’s right to choose!” But hold on: just last week, weren’t these same people telling us that men could get pregnant? A month ago, their Supreme Court nominee claimed not even to be able to define what a “woman” is. And in an attempt to attract “trans” money (there aren’t that many trans votes), they’ve been waging their own war on women by forcing them to compete in sports against men who “identify” as women and are twice their size.
They can’t chant, “My body, my choice!” anymore and claim to be defending body autonomy after forcing people to wear face masks and inject their bodies with a vaccine they objected to, on threat of losing their jobs and their civil rights. Barack Obama just declared that “there are limits to how much the government can encroach on our personal lives,” apparently forgetting that his Party wants to encroach on everything from our vaccine decisions to our social media posts to our free speech rights to where we’re allowed to pray.
They excoriated anyone who didn’t mouth allegiance to Black Lives Matter and put the BLM logo on their social media pages. But how can they say, “Black lives matter,” when they’re defending legalized abortion? Roe v. Wade ushered in a veritable genocide of black babies, with black victims far out of proportion to their population numbers.
The left’s favorite writer of historical fiction, “1619 Project” creator Nikole Hannah-Jones, predictably tweeted that the pro-life movement started as a pro-segregationist movement, and tried to paint abortion opponents as racist. But I didn’t show my belief that black lives matter by giving money to racially divisive hustlers to blow it on mansions. I defended black lives by opposing the actual destruction of millions of black lives, as well as babies of all other races, because I believe (more heresy!) that all lives matter.
The most laughable of all their unthinking clichés that I’m hearing everywhere now is the claim that overturning Roe v. Wade is an assault on “our democracy.” They keep using that word, but I don’t think they know what it means. The Justices in Roe took the right to decide abortion policy away from the voters. Returning that decision to the voters of the individual states would restore democracy.
If you want a quote from someone who really has no use for democracy, try this: “I’m not prepared to leave that (abortion laws) to the whims of the public at the moment.” – President Joe Biden.
Glenn Greenwald has a great Substack primer for liberals on the history and purpose of the Supreme Court. Spoiler alert: it’s not to ensure that majorities (or people who scream the loudest) get whatever they want. On the contrary, it’s to prevent majorities from passing laws that violate the Constitution.
Greenwald notes that leftwing activist Waleed Shahid tweeted a quote from Lincoln, that “if the policy of the government, upon vital questions affecting the whole people, is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, [then] the people will have ceased to be their own rulers.” He cluelessly failed to realize that that’s the exact argument we on the pro-life side have been making against Roe for half a century.
He also includes a stunningly oblivious quote from Vox.com’s Ian Millhiser, claiming that if the Supreme Court overturns Roe, it will mean “five unelected aristocrats” acted “undemocratically” to decide the legality of abortion. As Greenwald asks, “Who do they think decided Roe in the first place?” The unelected black-robed aristocrats of the Court in 1973 assaulted democracy. If Roe is overturned, it will be a long-delayed victory for democracy.

If these women who scream my body, my choice were intelligent and don’t want children, then they would use one of the many methods of birth control and not become pregnant instead of engaging in sexual practices and become pregnant, then kill their innocent little babies! Abortion is murder because it stops a beating heart! In my opinion, the only exception would be incest or rape, but it is still an innocent baby and the woman or girl is it’s mother! May the LORD have mercy on those who choose abortion! Only 2 of my 6 babies lived and the older of the two that lived died from ovarian cancer 5 days after her 19th birthday. If possible, I would have adopted several precious little babies. Many couples are unable to have children. I don’t believe any child is unwanted by someone.

I think the left is expressing rage about the SCOTUS draft decision because those people have a psychological need to tell (dictate to) other people how to behave and force conformance to liberal mandates. The SCOTUS decision, if it stays as currently written, will allow red states to limit or ban abortions and break the hold that liberals have on conservative leaning states. The decision will reduce power that liberals have courtesy of the 1973 SCOTUS decision.

I have an article written by Carroll County Commissioner (retired) Richard Rothschild about the role of God in our Declaration of independence that I would like to send to you for My Faith Votes. Please send me an email address or a mailing address. Also have an idea for you - Trump and DeSantis in 2024 if they will agree to do that. You know people who may be able to test the waters.

This article was so well written! Clear, specific, brilliant. I know you will continue to speak to us “regular “ folks with truth and intelligence.
I believe we are the same age, Governor,and I remember all the arguments in 1972 about abortion “rights”. I cannot believe that after all of these years we are still raising women with cold hearts who rant and rave a la Sen. Warren for the “ right” to kill their unwanted babies.

I am angry that abortion is even a public discussion. It is a private matter for a woman to decide. It should not be an open discussion primarily led by men.

It is so heart breaking as a minister and Christian that we have waited so long in the shadows for she educated elite dressed in black robes to man up "though still trying to hold America back" to recognize forty + years later R vs W started the dumb down of America. With more 8 yr terms than 4 yr terms America went from dumb down to down in disgrace. Dumb downed, disgraced all around and sold out every thing America stood for and now brings the same cutthroats to an all war on their own party. God has had patience with us but enough is enough. Love, kindness,patience, honor, straight tonged, integrity and purity of heart, soul and mind are he things that make us proud honest AMERICANS.
Thanks for your integrity in shaping, enabling and guiding us thru the perils of politics. Love and prayers

Our first son was born at 7 months weighing four pounds in late 1965. Thank God for JFK, who today’s Dems would not accept as a Democrat. After he and Jacqueline lost a baby in August of 1963, just months before JFK was shot, President Kennedy, trying to assuage Jackie’s sadness at losing yet another baby, made money available for the study of newborns. Our son, 8 weeks early, had eyelashes, hair, ten toes, and ten fingers. He only needed 28 days’ of help in an incubator breathing. Because we were able to have knowledge made available to doctors, our son lived. He’s now 56 with a wife and two of our grandchildren. If pro-abortion people don’t believe a baby is a BABY prior to birth, they are kidding themselves. They might be surprised at today’s neonatal departments in hospitals who can now save even VERY tiny humans. Our four pounder has a masters degree, and we are grateful for newer and newer knowledge aiding premature infants. To Bill Maher and others: It’s not just a fetus; it’s a LIFE!

I agree with all the problems we are having in our country, all the moral decay And I know that God is in control. But what can we do to stop it? I am sure He wants us to act not just sit and let it happen. I like your show and your comments

I love your columns and totally agree with the you on the abortion issue. I believe that if people were aware of the fallout that abortion can cause and has caused, there would be more consideration on this issue. Thank you for your columns!
