Dan Bongino explains why Cassidy Hutchinson is full of crap

Hunter Biden asks his prostitute if he hurt her

I feel like such a heel; I have never spent $10,000.00 on a woman. Not even on a whole weekend with my wife.

Different Takes on the Overturn of Roe v. Wade

Bill Donohue comments in his latest press release that the vast majority did not support what the Roe and Casey decisions allowed, which was abortion through nine months with no restrictions." A viral TikTok video by someone named Michelle Rhodes expands on this point.

Basically the horrible awfulness of abortion has not only been tolerated by the left for 49 years, but it has been expanded, exported, celebrated, recommended for every women and every situation, it has been propagandized by the liberal media which never covers anything negative about abortion, and we could go on and on about it. The result is that the defenders of abortion are now unveiling themselves as the most vile, hateful, violent people in our country and they are burning down churches, threatening to assasinate justices and making asses of themselves in the streets upon the news of the overturn.

This can be juxtaposed with the completely different take which you will continually find on Mark Shea's Daily Stumble blog. The enemy, according to Shea, is the prolife movement which has "turned itself into a monomaniac heresy at war with almost the entire social teaching of the Church and using the unborn as human shields for all that." To support his take on Roe v. Wade's overturn being a mistake, he cherry-picks some statistics and quotes some mean, personal insults some idiot made to him. He rarely if ever points out that abortion is pretty singularly horrible, and that anything which steps toward eliminating the procedure should be applauded. The tactic is to assert that the left is right about literally everything else — guns, welfare, immigration, tax policy, environment — and then, weighing all things to a nicety in the scales of his malice toward prolifers, he finds them deficient. Ergo, the 6-3 Dobbs decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is forever tainted by those who worked hard to bring it about, and he just cannot be happy about it.

Or... I might be going out on a limb here, but maybe Shea is butthurt because he often predicted — as he did in this post — that this day would never come, insinuating that the "Right Wing Cult Leadership" would give "nothing in return" for the slavish loyalty of religious conservatives.

This is, of course, completely counter to the official position of the Church which can be read in this statement on the USCCB page.

“This is a historic day in the life of our country, one that stirs our thoughts, emotions and prayers. For nearly fifty years, America has enforced an unjust law that has permitted some to decide whether others can live or die; this policy has resulted in the deaths of tens of millions of preborn children, generations that were denied the right to even be born.

“America was founded on the truth that all men and women are created equal, with God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This truth was grievously denied by the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling, which legalized and normalized the taking of innocent human life. We thank God today that the Court has now overturned this decision. We pray that our elected officials will now enact laws and policies that promote and protect the most vulnerable among us.

In fact, I received a link to this page in an email from the USCCB Marriage group on Friday, June 24. The USCCB is often said to be left of center and I generally think it is a bad idea to generalize about the Bishops since there are close to 200 of them in the United States and they obviously vary in their political ideas. Anyway, the subject of the email was "Praise God! Roe and Casey have been overturned!"

I am not sure in what universe a serious Catholic has to live to have a case of the sads about this news. Unless one puts being a committed leftist ahead of being Catholic.

Thank you, God, Supreme Court, Trump, RBG, Mitch McConnell, etc.

I feel bad I did not post this a few days ago when it happened, but I was really busy. But obviously the fall of the Roe v Wade decision is pretty much more important than any other news, or any opinion of mine, or petty like or dislikes. In fact, I really can't say it any better than this:

What a day! Of course this only means that abortion policy is now up to each state to regulate as it sees fit. There’s lots of work left to be done for the unborn.

Let us be thankful for all the faithful men and women and even children who marched, who prayed, who donated, and who sacrificed over the past 49 years to make this day a reality. Let us be thankful for the courage of Justices Alito, Barrett, Thomas, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and even Roberts, despite his waffling.

Let us be thankful for Donald Trump; I didn’t vote for him in part because I didn’t think he would do anything on abortion in the courts; I have scarcely been happier to admit I was wrong. This would not have happened without his presidency. And thank you, Federalist Society!

I am not a Catholic, but I want to give special thanks to the Catholic Church in the United States, for never once failing to fight for life. Thanks to to all the churches and church leaders who stood publicly for life. In America, the Catholics were always there, without fail. Thank you, National Right To Life and all other pro-life lobbyists.

It is always good to see people on the prolife side putting aside differences to give credit where it is due, so it is good to see Mr. Dreher doing so here.

Also a special thanks to my own mother who died on February 3, 2020. She always said what everyone else in the prolife movement said: Roe will fall, but that will not mean it is time to rest. But she worked at a crisis pregnancy center, went to the marches, and got tons of people involved in the effort including my brother and me. So she gets to rest now.

More Good News

This is good news for the gene pool, potentially.

Pro-abortion women are threatening to go on a sex strike following the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. However, pro-life Americans exposed a major flaw in the abortion ultimatum by liberals. In a rare instance, pro-life Americans completely agree with pro-abortion activists for them to practice abstinence.

However, pro-life Americans pointed out why the sex strike proposal completely backfires on liberals....

This is not so much as a backfire as it is a misfire. Maybe this will be a good penance for pro-choice men who have been enabling and benefitting from legalized abortion for almost 50 years now.

Here are some of the responses, all much more obvious than witty:
  • "Do all these women who say they’re going on a sex strike realize that they’ve now solved their abortion problem?"
  • "That moment when you realize if you go on #SexStrike you won’t need an abortion."
  • "Nicely done ladies! Abstaining from sex prevents an unwanted pregnancy and abortion."
  • "To people tweeting this, your terms are acceptable. We actually have no issue with you taking responsibility for once in your lives and not just having meaningless sex that ends with you taking an innocent human life."
  • "I don’t understand the logic behind going on a #sexstrike. Who exactly are you hurting by doing this aside from yourself and your partner? And if you love abortions the world is probably better off if you don’t have sex anyway."
  • "I am wondering if these ladies recognize that their pro-choice/abortion husbands would be the victims, while the pro-life husband and wives could protest this movement by simply having sex. Too Hilarious!"
