Vice President Kamala Harris was in Florida for a rally on the 50th anniversary of the (thankfully) now-overturned Roe v. Wade decision. As is often the case, her speech sparked major backlash, but this time not as much for what she said as what she left out.

Speaking to a pro-abortion crowd, Harris tried to imply that abortion was a fundamental right guaranteed to us by the Founders (I almost said “Founding Fathers,” but I’m sure she wouldn’t have said that.) Harris declared, “We collectively believe and know, America is a promise…It is a promise of freedom and liberty. Not just some, but for all. A promise we made in the Declaration of Independence, that we are each endowed with the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Be clear, these rights were not bestowed upon us, they belong to us as Americans."

Okay, did you notice something missing? The Declaration of Independence says that we are

endowed by our Creator “with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Yep, she skipped over the “right to life” part. I notice she also didn’t mention that the Founders obviously believed in God, which to me implies that they probably would not have been on board with killing babies. 

I’d suggest that she actually read the Declaration of Independence, not only to learn that God grants each person an unalienable right to life, but also to read a little farther down, about how governments derive their powers from the consent of the governed, and when they become destructive of these ends, the people have the right to alter or abolish them and institute new governments. Certain people in Washington who are a bit too enamored with globalism, China, and monitoring and censoring the people’s freedom of speech could use a refresher course in that part.

Also marking the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade were pro-abortion protesters who once again gathered outside the private home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

They were just as unconcerned about the fact that that’s a violation of federal law as the Biden DOJ is.

I’m sure many of them are passionate believers in various abortion lobby falsehoods, one of the most recent of which was that if Roe was overturned, countless women would die. Jack Hellner at the American Thinker did some research to find out how many women had died because of that, but came up empty.

He did, however, unearth some horrifying statistics about how many people had died because of the crush of illegal immigration after Biden opened the border, all the people who’ve died from drugs like fentanyl pouring over the border, and all the young people who’ve committed suicide from depression sparked by school closures and lockdowns.

And here’s a story about a woman who really did die: 20-year-old Kayla Marie Hamilton of Maryland, who was allegedly murdered by a 17-year-old illegal alien MS-13 gang member from El Salvador who was released into the US by Biden’s DHS as an “unaccompanied alien child.”

Those are a lot of real deaths, many of them women. But I guess the left doesn’t care about those, since they were just collateral damage of their own policies.

 

The SCOTUS Leak

January 20, 2023

After months of investigation of about 80 suspects among SCOTUS clerks and others, the US Supreme Court Marshal announced that they have been unable to "identify a person responsible by a preponderance of the evidence" for leaking the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade.

Update on the Gas War

January 16, 2023

Last week, the news media, in one of those simultaneous blitzes of stories that look suspiciously coordinated, suddenly inundated us with stories about how baaaaad gas stoves are and how we need to be saved from them by having Democrats ban them...

A New Crusade for the Left

January 11, 2023

The latest leftist crusade to make all our lives more miserable is a jihad against gas stoves, which are not only preferred by most cooks but which also keep working when you’re suffering through an electric blackout also caused by idiotic leftist politicians trying to make your life miserable.

This story exploded like a gas fire after a questionable “study” by an environmentalist group known to oppose gas appeared, claiming that gas is a dangerous pollutant that harms people’s health (which is why we have vent hoods. And windows) and causes climate change (of course.) Cory Booker even channeled an old joke about liberals, claiming that gas stoves disproportionately harm black, Latino and lower-income people. I know that as a white male, I am able to inhale gas with no ill effects at all.

The idea of meddling bureaucrats banning gas stoves got a reaction like touching a hot stove. Americans quickly made their fury known, including a restaurateur who told President Biden that it would destroy the restaurant industry (guess he didn’t know that destroying entire industries is kind of Biden’s thing.)

https://www.foxnews.com/media/restaurant-owner-sounds-alarm-proposed-gas-stove-ban-this-will-destroy-our-industry

Someone even unearthed a photo of Jill Biden demonstrating a favorite recipe on her fancy gas cooktop.

The response got so heated that a commissioner from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission rushed out a statement denying that they were considering banning gas stoves.

https://www.foxbusiness.com/lifestyle/consumer-watchdog-not-coming-anyones-gas-stoves

But that’s not the issue, is it? We’ve seen this scenario enough times that we’re all on to the scam by now. We know that once the left finds a new target, they don’t rest until they destroy it. We’re already hearing plans for laws banning gas lines into new buildings, and Biden has been waging war on domestic gas production since he took office. Natural gas, which until recently was hailed as a clean, cheap form of energy that brought down fuel prices and helped make America energy independent, has been utterly demonized. The time to fight back and say “NO” is now because we can all see what’s coming from a mile away: they won’t take away our gas stoves, they’ll just make sure there’s no gas to burn in them, rendering them useless.

Unless you’re one of the liberal anointed, like Jill Biden. I’m sure they assume they will always have gas stoves to provide their perfect crepes and tofu stir fries while the rest of us eat bugs. No, thanks.

Just two days after posing for a photo op at a wall at the border in El Paso, President Biden met with the leaders of Canada and Mexico. Mexico’s President praised him for being the first US President in a long time who hasn’t built “even one meter of wall” on the border.

Epic Day

January 10, 2023

Today is a pretty epic day for the Huckabee family. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, youngest of our 3 children, becomes the 47th Governor of Arkansas today at noon in a swearing in ceremony on the steps of the Arkansas State Capitol.

Evening Edition: Just Crazy

January 10, 2023

Chalk up another Biden campaign promise that’s no longer “operative.” President Biden dismissed criticism that he was draining the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to artificially lower gas prices before the elections by claiming that he was going to refill them with lower-priced oil and actually “make money for the taxpayers.”

Morning Edition: Epic Day

January 10, 2023

After Democrats literally made a federal case out of President Trump having documents marked “classified” at Mar-A-Lago (seized in an outrageous and unprecedented raid on a former President’s home), it was reported Monday that a batch of documents from Joe Biden’s time as Vice President, including classified documents...
