    I’ve been in touch with many of Norma’s personal friends – people who knew and loved Norma personally for years. They share that her conversion was real, and that she felt tormented by the deadly law that has led to the deaths of over 60 million children. #NormaMcCorvey

    @LilaGraceRose

    The pro-abortion Vice filmmakers are trying to change the narrative on abortion.

    But they can’t erase the facts.

    Since Roe v Wade, over 60 million children have been killed. Their deaths wound & divide our nation.

    Roe is an unjust, unconstitutional law & it will be overturned.

  2. Shut up Chucky….

    They’re a joke, and so are you for defending their incompetence.

    Like China seeded the world, NY seeded the US due to lies and incompetence, and a failure to listen to federal authorities.

    “Ukrainian Lawmaker Releases Recorded Phone Calls Of Biden, Poroshenko That Contain Eyebrow-Raising Remarks”

    “Andriy Derkach, an independent member of Ukraine’s parliament, said at a press conference on Tuesday that he had received recorded phone call conversations between presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, then-vice president in the Obama administration, and former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, which Derkach reportedly played at the press conference.

    The Washington Post reported that the “recordings of private phone calls between former vice president Joe Biden and former Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko” were “a new broadside against the presumptive Democratic nominee for U.S. president.”

    The Post reports that Derkach has past links to Russian intelligence and that he claimed that the tapes were made by Poroshenko. The Post noted that the clips consisted of “edited fragments of phone conversations [between] Biden and Poroshenko” but did not dispute that the clips were authentic.”

    “Graham Officially Requests Searches For Other Trump Officials Who May Have Been Unmasked”

    “Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham sent a letter to Attorney General Bill Barr and Acting DNI Richard Grenell Tuesday afternoon requesting information about other Trump administration officials who may have been unmasked between November 6, 2016 and January 20, 2017.

    “Given the extensive number of requests for the unmasking of General Flynn’s name during this short time period, it raises the question of whether these or other officials sought the unmasking of the identities of other individuals associated with the Trump campaign or transition team,” Graham wrote in the letter. “Accordingly, I request that the Committee be provided with a list of the names of any officials who requested with the Trump campaign or transition team, including but not limited to Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Corey Lewandowski, Paul Manafort, Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Sam Clovis, Chris Christie, Carter Page, and George Papadopoulos, and the reason given for any such request.”

    “In addition, I request an explanation as to why the list released on May 13th did not contain a record showing who unmasked General Flynn’s identity for his phone call with Ambassador Kislyak,” Graham continued.

    According to sources close to this process, Flynn’s unmasking is just the tip of the iceberg and many more Trump administration officials were targeted by outgoing Obama officials.”

  8. Michelle — I have no doubt her conversion was real. However, when the emotion/adrenaline of a conversion subside there is real work needed to maintain the faith. Those who are susceptible to mental illness and addictive behaviour frequently look for an emotion lift elsewhere once the initial experience is over. The cynical money grab might have been part of a new emotion lift as was the ability to deceive others. One of the ministers involved admits to using her and paying her. For me its an interesting story of the human experience as I have no real stake in the debate itself.

  9. Baltimore’s decline can be more correctly blamed on the decline of US manufacturing. Cities in the rust belt declined as manufacturing moved overseas. The fact the Democrats were in charge not Republicans doesn’t make them responsible for the decline of these cities. In most cases they were simply unprepared for a dramatic change in a city’s fortunes. Look at these cities as “sacrifice zones” to capitalism. They were exploited and when no longer needed abandoned. The Democratic vote can then be explained as a result of exploitation. In my own city, the people generally voted Liberal and Conservative until industry died and then people voted for the socialist NDP as it was the only party to advocate for those who were exploited and abandoned. And now, Conservatives blame my city’s decline and poverty on the NDP but they mixed the cause and effect.

  10. The complaints against Cuomo and especially against Del Blasio may be justified but in reality these complaints can be voiced against other incompetent leaders also. NYC may have been a vector but it wasn’t the only one. Cell phone data from Florida in March shows a steady progression of people returning to the north bringing the infection with them as the Florida governor didn’t take precautions. The vast majority of early cases in Ontario came from people returning from Florida. While most families took the necessary precautions when coming back including self isolation, older residents did not. Spending the whole winter in Florida and listening to the dismissals of the governor and FOX news they didn’t take our gov’ts request for self isolation and brought Covid to the nursing homes when they went to visit their friends. (Hence the Build the Wall jokes from Canadians).

    The simple point is we can easily level blame but we also need to take lessons from it and I don’t see the Republican critics doing this. An inquiry is needed in both Canada and the US on how we treat our old and how we can learn from the current failure.

  11. New PA stats are out.

    Nursing homes remain the most dangerous place in the state.

    Our local county govt. run facility is 2nd in cases, 3rd most employee cases, and 3rd most in deaths.

    Now you know why the State Health Secretary yanked it’s mother out of one, despite forcing hospitals to return infected residents to the homes to infect more victims.

  13. Makes sense.

    Police enforce the law, not the petty, tyrannical overreach of Gov’s orders. It’s not really a crime, so it’s not a police matter.

    “Illinois State Police Won’t Arrest Individuals for Violations of Executive Orders

    “No individual will be arrested or taken to jail for a violation of the Executive Orders or emergency rules.”

    “ISP encouraged people “to continue to do their part to maintain public health.” They urged “voluntary compliance.”

    The note did not specify what kind of citations a business might receive or if they will go to the extreme with the Class A misdemeanor.”
