    “Actress Calls Abortion ‘Another Word For Mercy,’ ”

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/actress-calls-abortion-another-word-for-mercy-promotes-abortion-for-womens-career-advancement

    “Actress Anne Hathaway said Tueday that abortion can be “another word for mercy,” and advocated for abortion in the context of women advancing in their careers.

    “My own personal experience with abortion — and I don’t think we talk about this enough — abortion can be another word for mercy,” the 39-year-old told the women of “The View.””

    “We don’t know,” Hathaway continued. “We know that no two pregnancies are alike, and it follows that no two lives are alike, it follows that no two conceptions are alike.”

    Notably, pro-life advocates often emphasize the unique human life of the unborn, a tack Hathaway seemed to take while promoting the act.

    “So how can we have a law, how can we have a point of view on this that says we must treat everything the same?” the “Les Miserables” actress said. “When you allow for choice, you allow for flexibility, which is what we need in order to be human.”

  5. The media continues to beclown themselves. First Biden tells not 1 but 5 separate lies yesterday, and not one of the MSM outlets has mentioned it.

    And then there’s these clowns…..

    Please stop giving them any credibility. That just hurts yours.

    “Paging Liz Cheney: Abortion Rights Protesters Disrupt SCOTUS Which Threatens America’s Democracy

    Where are you, Adam Kinzinger?”

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2022/11/abortion-rights-protesters-disrupt-scotus-which-threatens-americas-democracy/

    “I hope Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger act on this fast because this insurrection threatens America’s “democracy.”

    Abortion rights activists stormed the SCOTUS courtroom, disrupting the justices:

    Protesters opposed to the Supreme Court’s decision overturning abortion rights briefly interrupted arguments at the court Wednesday and urged women to vote in next week’s elections.

    It was the first courtroom disruption since the court’s decision in June that stripped away women’s constitutional protections for abortion after nearly a half-century under Roe v. Wade.

    Three people stood up in the courtroom in the first few minutes of Wednesday’s session to denounce the abortion ruling, which came in a case from Mississippi, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.”

  8. Indeed we do.

    “We Need Pandemic Accountability, Not “Pandemic Amnesty”

    Emily Oster’s article misses all three “R” requirements of meaningful forgiveness: Remorse, Repair, and Not Repeating.”

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2022/11/we-need-pandemic-accountability-not-pandemic-amnesty/

    “The Atlantic published a piece titled “Let’s Declared a Pandemic Amnesty.” It was authored by Emily Oster, Professor of Economics and International and Public Affairs at Brown University, who wants forgiveness between “one another for what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID.”

    To say the response was an exceedingly robust rejection of her plea would be an understatement.

    Perhaps this is the best take, underscoring that if we forgot everything that has happened since February 2020, is that such amnesty would be “toxic forgiveness.””

    “After watching this video, I was reminded of the “Three R’s” of forgiveness promoted by Dr. Laura Schlessinger, talk show host, and author. She was one of my must-listen-to hosts in the early 1990s until she was cancel-cultured because gay activists decided to distort some of her statements.

    The approach Schlessinger offered to avoid “toxic forgiveness” involved Remorse (expressing real regret), Repair (taking action to fix the consequences of behavior), and Not Repeating the action.

    Let’s look at the current state of pandemic dynamics and what we have for each of the R’s.

    REMORSE
    The only remorse I can sense is the panic of the progressive activists as they see the scale of the retribution for the over two years of bureaucratic bullying and media misinformation that Americans have been treated to. Being sorry for receiving the just punishment to which you are due is NOT remorse.

    Real remorse in this instance would be Big Pharma executives issuing heartfelt apologies for asserting the vaccine would stop infection. True regret would be the journalists and entertainers who mocked those who challenged their assertions (correctly), confessing how wrong they were in a sincere manner. Believable contrition would be bureaucrats from all aspects of government that pushed stringent pandemic policies jettisoning any of the current practices related to controlling people…including vaccine mandates.”

    “REPAIR

    The next phase, repair, is certainly challenging.

    How do you bring back the seniors who were consolidated into hospitals, where the more robust, early version of the virus was allowed to spread and claim so many lives?

    How do you give back the missed birthday parties, weddings, graduations, and other life celebrations that were canceled in an attempt to contain the uncontainable virus?

    How do you restore the reputation and accounts of epidemiologists, medical doctors, and other biological safety professionals who challenged many of the assertions being made in the press…but who were subsequently canceled because they went against the preferred narrative of the day?

    How do you recover the careers of those fired for not getting vaccinated or the education of those prohibited from attending schools and universities for not getting the injection?

    How do people reclaim the consolation of religious services missed in the quest to “stop the spread”?

    How do you return lost developmental and learning progress to children after they were hindered by ineffective rules that were often retained despite not stopping the virus and only harmed the kids?

    Finally, if research and evidence eventually prove that the vaccines have caused severe cardiac effects in young people and other significant, adverse health effects in healthy adults (who might have weathered covid infections with monitored symptoms), how are those lives restored?”

    “Liz Cheney’s Endorsement Is The Political Kiss Of Death

    https://thefederalist.com/2022/11/02/liz-cheneys-endorsement-is-the-political-kiss-of-death/

    “Cheney’s stamp of approval, however, is no more likely to help Ryan, Pelosi, and House Democrats than it has the Republicans who have stood by her. Out of the nine other Republicans who joined her in the Democrats’ crusade to impeach President Donald Trump last year, just two remain on the ballot next week. The rest either lost primaries to a Trump-endorsed opponent or abandoned reelection altogether, including Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger.

    Cheney lost her own primary by a wider margin than any other to Trump-endorsed attorney Harriet Hageman, who carried the race by more than 37 points. Had Cheney not successfully courted Wyoming’s Democrat voters, her already overwhelming loss would have likely been by far larger margins. Cheney says now she won’t vote for Hageman in the general, but the candidate is slated to win over voters in the deep-red state a second time next week.

    House Democrats, on the other hand, have been forecast by some to lose as many as 35 seats, with Pelosi already plotting her exit strategy to become the Italian ambassador. Ryan is polling behind Vance in RealClearPolitics’ latest aggregate of polls, and that’s despite the fact that polls are routinely manipulated to show Democrats with an edge to drive media narratives that benefit them.

    Two other Democrats this fall drew the poisoned praise of Cheney. While endorsing Democrats in Wyoming, Cheney turned her fire on Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, who is running against incumbent Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.

    “In this election, you have to vote for the person who actually believes in democracy,” Cheney said in September, calling Lake an “election denier.” Cheney, the vice chair of Pelosi’s Select Committee on Jan. 6, however, just laughed when confronted about a book by her colleague on the panel, Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., about how her father stole the 2000 election.”

    Last week, Lake published an open letter to Cheney to thank the soon-to-be ex-congresswoman for airing ads against her. The former Arizona television anchor said the ads drew in $300,000 for the Republican’s campaign.

    “Thank you for your generous in-kind contribution to my campaign. Your recent television ad urging Arizonans not to vote for me is doing just the opposite,” Lake wrote. “Our campaign donations are skyrocketing and our website nearly crashed from the traffic as people rush to learn more about my plan to put Arizona first and join our historic political movement.”

    “While we appreciate your in-kind contribution, the $500,000 ad buy likely exceeds Arizona’s $5,300 individual contribution limit,” Lake added.

    Lake is currently leading Hobbs by 3 points in the RealClear aggregate.

    In Michigan, Cheney endorsed endangered Democrat Rep. Elissa Slotkin, who is running in a toss-up race to represent the 7th Congressional District. Slotkin is one of the Democrats’ most targeted incumbents after she was first elected in the blue-midterm year 2018.

    “I encourage all voters in the 7th district — Republicans, Democrats, and Independents — to support her in this election,” Cheney said. But in Michigan, Republicans are picking up momentum statewide.”

  11. From Clinics for Abortion and Reproductive Excellence: (hmmm an oxymoron if I ever read one!!) Polis is a horrid person…and I might add he is an “adoptive Dad”….. how does that even balance with “abortion rights”!?
    After the SCOTUS sent RoevsWade back to the states Polis stated Colorado would be a “safe haven” for those choosing abortion….disgusting.

    Third Trimester Abortion Colorado

    Founded May 1, 1992 by LeRoy and Mary Lou Carhart, our mission is to provide late term abortions in Colorado for those who dont have access, contraception and routine medical care to women and men in a compassionate, comfortable and personal environment. We recognize the needs of each client as an individual, while attempting to keep costs as affordable as possible. Every member of our team has pledged to make your experience with us one we would want for our sisters, our partners, our mothers and our daughters. And we want you to know, you are not alone. One of every three women of child bearing age in the United States will have or has had an abortion.

    We provide assistance to women in Colorado with late term abortions, third trimester abortions, abortion after 27 weeks, maternal indication abortions, fetal indication abortions, and birth control.

    Abortion After 27 Weeks Colorado

    Facts About Induction Procedure (25 Weeks And Up):
    This is normally a 3 day procedure depending on your medical history. First, an ultrasound will be done. This is done by passing a microphone-like instrument over your abdomen (belly) which measures the size of your pregnancy. The final decision as to whether the induction can be done will depend on your medical history, physical exam, lab tests, and the doctor’s evaluation. On the first day the cervix is slowly opened with plastic or metal rods, each one slightly bigger than the last. When the cervix is as open as possible, small sponges (laminaria) that take up water from your body will be placed; they swell and continue to open the cervix overnight. The next morning the laminaria are removed and new laminaria are placed. This is repeated as needed until the cervix is adequately open. The induction abortion ends with the start of labor and delivery of a stillborn.

  12. We were like totally shocked…..

    Especially given how heavily we weighted our biased poll towards Dems. I guess voters aren’t buying the manure we’ve been spreading.

    “Quinnipiac: Say, we’ve just discovered an eight-point flip to the GOP — among registered voters”

    https://hotair.com/ed-morrissey/2022/11/02/quinnipiac-say-weve-just-discovered-an-eight-point-flip-to-the-gop-among-registered-voters-n507592

    “Gee, this looks like a trend, no? The question, as it was earlier today with the sudden shifts in polling at CNN and NPR/Marist, is what’s actually trending. Is it voters or pollsters?

    Before you answer that, here’s Quinnipiac with the biggest gap jump of the day, although on a longer time line. Two months ago, Quinnipiac reported Democrats leading in their national generic ballot polling, 47/43. Now that Election Day is less than a week away, Quinnipiac has found sudden Republican momentum to the tune of an eight-point flip in the gap. And this is among registered voters rather than likely voters:”

    “Why is Quinnipiac reporting RVs rather than LVs at this stage? Dunno, but here’s how Quinnipiac reports its latest iteration:

    Among registered voters, if the election were today, 48 percent say they would want to see the Republican Party win control of the United States House of Representatives, while 44 percent say the Democratic Party.

    This is a shift from a Quinnipiac University poll on August 31st when 47 percent said the Democratic Party and 43 percent said the Republican Party.

    As for which party registered voters would want to see win control of the United States Senate, 48 percent say the Republican Party and 45 percent say the Democratic Party. This compares to August when 47 percent said the Democratic Party and 45 percent said the Republican Party.

    Yeah, it’s a shift, all right. It looks like a political earthquake took place in the last two months, but from what? According to the polling memo, suddenly people are a lot more concerned about … inflation:

    One week before Election Day, an increasing number of Americans say inflation (36 percent) is the most urgent issue facing the country today, up 9 percentage points since late August, according to a Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pea-ack) University national poll of adults released today.

    It’s not just that it rose nine points, but that no other issue comes within 25 points of it. Here’s the issue priority breakdown in this poll, again among RVs:

    Inflation: 37%, 43% among indies
    Abortion: 10%, 8% among indies
    Crime, gun violence, election laws, climate change: 6%”

    —-

    “The changes in the demos tell a strange story, too. Independents went from a 41/43 on the GOP to 49/34, a wild shift. Hispanics now give Republicans a 46/42 advantage, but two months ago were 30/59. Voters between ages 18 and 34 had been almost 2:1 in support of Democrats in August, 29/56, but now are within the MoE at 42/46. With all of that action, it seems odd that the overall gap only flipped by eight points.

    Interestingly, some key demos didn’t budge at all. Black voters moved more toward Democrats over the same period, from 16/67 to 83/10 now. Women also stayed more or less the same, from 39/54 in August to 37/53 now.

    Basically, this poll looks very suspicious on several levels, especially without any LV modeling despite Quinnipiac’s heavy emphasis on voter enthusiasm. Why ask these questions if you’re not going to model turnout based on the answers?”
