A few hours ago the Supreme Court of United States (SCOTUS) confirmed their ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, the case which set the precedent for abortion as a human right in the US back in the 1970s.
As soon as this decision was first “leaked” a few months ago it became the trending topic all across the US and to a certain extent the rest of the anglosphere. Since it was confirmed this afternoon, the already supercharged dialogue has reached new heights.
Pro-choice pundits, politicians and celebrities have been flooding the cyber public square with comparisons to the Handmaid’s Tale and other forced memes. They argue abortion-on-demand is a fundamental right, and take up the rather unsettling position that having an abortion is a point of pride.
On the other side of the divide Christians, traditionalists and republican politicians argue for the sanctity of all life, regardless of context or complication.
Both sides are entrenched to the point of hysteria, and not really looking like budging.
As with most things, the reasonable ground is somewhere in the middle.
Regardless of the law, women will sometimes seek out abortions, and it’s probably best they have access to safe, clean places to do so. That said, the use of abortions as a form of contraception is both obscene and impractical, and aborting viable mid or late term babies is revolting – both in concept, and in practice.
None of that really matters though, because the Roe v Wade finding isn’t even about abortion, it’s about Federal overreach. The Justices made that clear.
Though it has gotten lost in 250 years of ever-expanding centralization, the USA originated as a loose federation of quasi-independent states, with the central federal government having strictly limited powers to overrule local legislation.
Simply put, the Constitution lays out all the powers of the federal government, and anything not specifically mentioned therein is de facto a matter for states on an individual basis.
For decades federal governments used SCOTUS decisions to get around these limitations, relying on precedents rather than actual legislation in order to control state laws from Washington DC.
Roe v Wade is a classic example of this, and reversing it changes only one thing: abortion law will revert to a state-level matter, not a federal one.
…but is it even really just about that?
On a deeper level, there seems to be a prolonged campaign in place to violently divide the United States, perhaps to the point of outright civil war.
From Black Lives Matter to January 6th, the 2nd amendment to Roe v Wade, there is an increasing supply of hot-button issues accompanied by a deluge of divisive rhetoric.
Both sides are being encouraged to take to the streets, protest, mock, yell and scream without any search for common ground.
The office of the Presidency is degraded more every term, with a crass blowhard followed by a jittering dementia patient.
Some states are even openly talking about seceding.
At the end of the Cold War, Russia was economically raped and globally humiliated. It came within inches of shattering into a dozen or more failed states. As the big money players head East, and the hegemonic powers turn from the US Empire to a new globalist powerbase, you have to wonder if the US is destined for the same fate.
Just as the USSR had to fail, and be seen to fail pour encourager les autres, perhaps the US – with its history of individualism and personal liberty – is considered surplus to requirements in the new age of faux collectivism.
Whatever America became at its Imperial zenith, its constitutional foundation has always arguably been the most egalitarian on Earth. Could it be that those ideas enshrined in the Bill of Rights are considered an impediment to the “progressive” New World Order?
The US falling into failed statehood could even act as a moral lesson to the rest of the world, and be held up as a warning about what can happen when “liberty is taken too far”, or when people are allowed to “selfishly put their own rights ahead of the public good”.
Perhaps the US being torn apart – or encouraged to tear itself apart – is key to bringing about the next stage of the great reset.
One thing is for sure, no matter the endgame, US politics are dry tinder piled high, waiting for a spark.

One thing the libs who chant about “higher GDP” in blue areas seem to overlook is that, once the seccessions start, the USD will become worthless. No one will touch federal debt.
This leads quickly to a meltdown of the vaporous “tech economy,” which produces almost nothing of real value.
It also leads to a mass migration of poor blacks, Latinos, etc. out of “red” areas, since they fear persecution or disenfranchisement similar to the Palestinians in 1947.
That very, very quickly changes the economic picture in blue coastal regions. Their progressive utopian policies hit a financial wall, and hard. University and public pensions? Worthless. Defense? Non-existent. Border control? Non-existent. Law and order? Non existent.
In addition, there are a lot of very sophisticated tech and academic workers who are taqqiya conservatives or even reactionaries. Once they have an alternative to being repressed in an egalitarian totalitarian environment like California, they will take it.
In less than 50 years the combination of all of these things means the blue coastal areas are a third world hellhole, outside of the tiny elite walled gardens. In 100-200 years it will be necessary for the adjoining red areas to reconquer them for security reasons. No problem, we’ve done it before, we’ll do it again.
Democracy is mob rule. In America it is a Constitutional Republic or as some say “Rule of law”. A democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what’s for dinner. In a Constitutional Republic it’s two wolves and a well armed sheep who decide.
The constitution was invented by and is controlled by the wolves but its first ten amendments protect the sheep from the wolves.
the constitution gives congress no power not in Article 1, Sec 8, paragraphs 1 thou 17<=the enumerated powers, plus 1 power(paragraph 18) to allow congress to enact laws necessary to exercise its 17 powers. So Article 1 is domestic legislation.
Article two, Section 2 paragraphs 1,2 and 3 gives powers to the president. Except for operating the government that congress funds, the power of the President generally involves national defense, foreign relations and foreign affairs.
Nearly all other clauses in the Constitution, define domestic relations and boundaries or clarify prior commitment or obligation of the USA.
Remember there were two USAs, the first[1776-1788] hired George Washing to help defeat the British, the second defeated the rights of states and humans who were loyal members of the states [1788-to present]; the 2nd hired George Washington to be the President.
Democracy always ends in tyranny. The ancients understood this, but moderns have forgotten it.
The problem is therefore not “too much liberty,” but rather “too much democracy.”
Or as Peter Thiel put it: “I no longer believe that democracy is compatible with freedom.”
Democracy is the antithesis of freedom.
Yes. But since 1865, no one educated in the Cathedral’s indoctrination system (read: US public schools) has understood this.
Today, people think “liberty” means “libertinism,” and they think “freedom” means libertinism, too. And they don’t know the word “libertinism.”
excellent viewpoint and shares my sentiments and gut from the day i heard about this new ‘ruling’. this is really about creating more maga-hat wearing christian conservative white supremacists straw men.
The author is right that there are forces seeking to keep people divided and sometimes they inflame those divides, either out of strategy or their own irrationality. But some of the things that divide us are not artificially created categories of the mind, like race, but categories of reality.
It is obvious by now that the government cannot be neutral on moral issues. Either there is an immutable moral law that comes from God and cannot be changed, or there is only a consensus determined by the whims of the majority according to the pursuit of pleasure and avoidance of pain. Ultimately, it will not be the majority that determines what is right or wrong but those with the power to do so. Might makes right.
Liberalism, upon which the American Order is based, falls under the latter category. While paying lip service to a Creator, it allows for individual choice when it comes to choosing your own conception of the Creator and therefore results in relegating religion to a personal choice which cannot have any authority over the whims of the mob, or the rich and powerful.
Race is not “of the mind” any more than sex or gender are “of the mind.”

The US is overdue for a constitutional edit. Its probably the only country I know of that has not had a proper modern era edit and perhaps thats what’s truly needed.
On the other hand , perhaps they got it right for the most part and its the post modern degenerates, products of their Ivy League schooling no doubt, that have forgotten how to think that have placed such stress on the country. Typically these twats are money hungry and will do almost anything for a buck. They don’t really make anything misread they destroy and then blame it all on someone else, rarely do they contribute to society , for the most part they just drain oxygen and vital resources from our planet, making it somewhat inhabitable when they live close by. I mean can someone truly be that stupid or are they just evil.
The current group of monkeys at the G7 table is a perfect example. These buffoons still have no clue so I tend to believe they are simply just truly stupid.
Don’t fret, Mr. Putin will soon be the bearer of the blame for Fish (Roe) Water (Wade).
The USSR split, just like the other soon to be fractured Union – the European one. Its no big deal that the US Union will also split. Perhaps thats what this is all about. Quebec and Canada – that should have happened long ago and then theres the UK – another Union.
Unions don’t seem to work.
Nationalism works. Like minded people living happily among themselves within a line that defines them on many factors and traits. Its not a bad thing.
Mix that with a global crypto currency that is not Federal backed and a crypto security asset like Bitcoin and then watch what happens. Small nations will have governments that act more as municipal administrators ensuring we have water plants, roads and a piercer heath care system among others.
less rules means less fools. Ideally.
That ones a bit of stretch but then all the rules will be in the land of Neoliberalism. Its going to be a wasteland soon but at least they can die out their days happily while more importantly leaving the rest of us the hell alone.
To some extent it has already started and soon it will be the norm. Liberals with their notions of right and wrong can all hang out in one area , hell make it a country, until they realize their neighbouring areas are turning out to be better places to live. Shit.
Do we need to worry about them again?
We will have to reconquer the “liberal” lands in 100-200 years after they have been overrun by minorities and turned into a literal “idiocracy.”
But, that’s no problem. It’ll just be Manifest Destiny all over again, or perhaps a re-run of Sherman’s “march to the sea.”
I have pointed out recently to people on both sides of this issue that the big question they should be asking themselves is that after almost 50 years – WHY NOW? No one I have talked to is the least interested in this question. The SCOTUS does not function in a political vacuum. If you ask the question, Why now? the obvious answer is divide and rule, keep the populace ever more polarized. From the point of view of the health freedom movement, “my body my choice has been a rallying cry in defending ourselves from the jab mandates. But the health freedom movement, for better or worse, is overpopulated by people on the right. All of a sudden they forget the sign they carried saying ” my body my choice” and have forgotten the Covid scam New Normal tyranny and have been transported back to 1973.
Yep. That’s exactly what my response is. I am glad of the ruling, but Why Now? For chaos and division.
Except I still stand by “my body my choice”, I just also happen to believe that my body ends where another body begins, even if that body happens to be growing inside me. That body doesn’t have my blood. That body doesn’t have my heart, my brain, or my organs. That body also has the right to their own autonomy. It has the right to not be exposed to harmful injections AND to live.
RE Except I still stand by “my body my choice”, I just also happen to believe that my body ends where another body begins, even if that body happens to be growing inside me.
Well, that is some remarkable logic, I guess that would include parasites too (They are pushing for trans rights now, which will lead to rights for transhumans. Will we soon have rights for parasites, AI?). The state, however, will not see it that way. If you are pregnant, your “choice” doesn’t matter. You will not have freedom to travel as you might travel to a state where abortion is legal. They will have to track you. And since they are tracking you, what other things will interest them? Enjoy!
I made a slight mistake in my previous post. I said “if you are pregnant” the state will need to track you. No the state will need to track you for all the years you are potentially child-bearing. How long is that?
When you’re a woman, and you’re pregnant, your body is doing what it is designed to do. That body growing inside you belongs to you, and you belong to it.
My Empire My Right to Choose
This issue is definitely polarising.
The woke types are getting fully exercised.
Check this comment that got shared internally at a workplace. Makes you scratch your head at first to figure out wtf they are on about.
Awful news from the US and (name) has reminded me that many people will be feeling anxiety about the direction of the world; I don’t know if you want to say something (Boss) or others; i’ve said a brief thing about talking to line managers if you need support in #internal_whinge slack channel; but it’s worth us all being aware that quite a few people will be shaken and upset by this even if not personally affected
So it’s an effective distraction.
The breakup of the US is progressing, being driven by confrontations caused by the rise of the progressives.
a guy on Quillette wrote “ Democrats could have easily codified Roe vs Wade into Law. They’ve had ample opportunities. But they wanted to preserve it as an issue in each election cycle, as a means to frighten women into voting Democrat. Cynical pure politics at the expense of the very women they purport to champion.”
One wonders how they could have accomplished that, seeing that the Constitution did not grant the federal government the authority to make law in that area. That, essentially, was what the ruing said: “We have no authority to rule on this matter.”
That (a federal law) would have been seen by me and many others as just another federal overreach. It is better that the states decide their own policies.
This article is beyond ridiculous. I had to force myself to read all the way through. Starting at point of using abortion as “birth control”…blah, blah, blah….it IS birth control, you halfwit. Most women get abortions because their first line of birth control failed. Maybe if you spent more time on the internet searching for abortion FACTS rather than link some right-wing site that is factually incorrect you might be able to attempt to write about abortion rather than make shit up and use it as a very bad tool to make a political point, even about which you are STILL incorrect.
Abortion should be subject to ZERO legislation of ANY KIND under any state (government use of the word.) It is not a matter for any state to regulate, legislate or “rule” on in a court of “law”. Law exists only as a tool of repression and oppression and is governed by CLASS RULE as the state is a manifestation of CLASS control, with its monopoly on violence through the armed men, its laws, prisons and monetary sanction (theft by state.)
States always ignore federal rulings and laws because the state is about coercive control and if it suits them to ignore “precedent” from an idiot form of so-called legal structure, they do so and do it continuously. If it suits them to use a federal ruling to justify interfering with more personal autonomy—such as DNA tests BEFORE any conviction, they don’t ignore that. They don’t ignore the SCOTUS rulings years ago (the very tiny fraction that are actually correct by their own made-up rules) only if it benefits them or is used to keep up the lie of “rights” to keep from facing an open revolt when people get wise to the fact “rights” are made-up bullshit to brainwash people into believing they are FWEEEEEEEE.
Millions of people are arrested on “disorderly conduct” charges in all 50 states and if people protest, the feds will dust off again, what the SCOTUS claims to have hobbled but not overruled, which is the Chaplinsky ruling. The height of stupidity, the likes of which can only be stitched by the usual sophistry known as “the law”. The ultimate gas-lighting is when the narcissists in their little magical robes make claims using their twisted lack of logic and critical thinking skills an “interpretation” of what the Constitution says, whether or not it says any such thing. You really have no idea how your own state and its judicial branch works, do you? (Again, state is ANY government, no matter what level of oppression and pro-private property of the rich level it’s on.) The fact that there are so many f’n levels of government at all should cause a lightbulb moment even in the most dim mind to how truly NOT FREE you really are.
If women still want abortions despite legal bans, they are always free to get another Pfizer jab or 3.
That way you can kill two and not just one! Yay!!
Not very bright, are you? You should be LEGALLY forced to get a COVID jab no matter what manufacturer. Three even. Retard. See how that word “legal” works? Apparently not, since you didn’t have the comprehension skills to get it the first time I explained it. Typical that you are a “right” liberal, too, LMFAO. All you dopes with your false dichotomous D vs. R mentality when our state is that of a classical liberal political economy. DUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Maybe you should get three forced shots that will kill you so the world won’t have to deal with yet another moron. Let the state control you, since you think it’s perfectly fine for the state to control half the population. Typical dumbass STATIST crybaby little saggy sack. I thought this outlet was against COVID fuckwittery, but here’s a reader telling me I should get this “vaccine” that doesn’t work and kills people. OK, then…..
Can you tone down the name calling/abuse, please. It really only undermines your point. Thank you, A2
I concur as far as your conception of the State as a predator. We have a very messed up system that clouds very basic issues because we have a monopoly of violence in the State. Can’t disagree with any of that.
The Handmaid’s Tale? Way to go! Consulting that final arbiter of wisdom, Wiki:
“Environmental pollution”. Nice one! Incidentally – this links to a NYT piece with the title “’The Handmaid’s Tale’ And Ours”. And Ours! It’s all so … prescient, prophetic, penetrating (oops – better watch out for the phallocentric wordage!)
Yup they’re going for it:
“The Handmaid’s Tale’ EP Warren Littlefield On “Hauntingly Relevant” Dystopian Drama, Finding Hope & Mobilizing After Roe V Wade Is Overturned”
From The Daily Cthuhu. Cue picture of protestor with sinister white hood and placard: “This is not fiction”.
Keep them angry over irrelevances.
Pity about blaming calling Trump a crass blowhard. The issue remains the even if if you foster a view of abortion being abhorrent it remains an emotional one based on belief system.
Important to remember by passing the buck or a hot potato to politician in the legislature in individual states to decide, will not resolve the problem and more likely to exacerbate it.
Politicians only look for the best trade-off for themselves to get reelected. The last thought about or in their minds is those who put them in office. Taking action for a politician is anything that justifies their drawing a salary. Even if it is destructive.
The issue should not be one of consensus and group think, but more about the right of an individual to decide (freedom of choice) and to live with their conscience. Who are we to judge others? It is not another liberty being attacked like the right to arm or carry arms or the right of association or freedom of association?
Don’t fall for the bleeding-heart argument, that is the emotional blackmail name and blame and shame trick.
Way to go, Kit! Thanks for cutting to the chase and showing the real motivations of these “events.” Isn’t it food for thought that the ostensible reasons for most of what has happened in the pasts two+ years has very little to do with the real agenda?
I’m still pondering the ramifications.
One one hand, I wonder if the intent is to erode and even lead to the demise of the Supreme Court, or perhaps justify a move to “reconfigure” it.
The fact that 2 very polarizing “hot button” decisions both went to the conservative side in a matter of days makes me ponder this possibility…
This could further a move to claim the Constitution itself needs to go, etc etc.
My other thought is that this is a battle being played out between the globalist-backed government and remnants of conservative structures, who do in fact genuinely want to preserve and contain Federal and State powers as intended, which Roe vs. Wade clearly steamrolled. Part of me thinks taking power from the behemoth federal level can be a good thing, but then I remember the little tyrants we had to endure in various states with nonsensical and arbitrary rules during lockdown etc.
Either way, it’s a conundrum.
Remember, if someone young and healthy dies unexpectedly, it is improper to ask about their vaccination status. That question is only for important occasions, like entry to restaurants. Noah.
Both sides are being encouraged to take to the streets, protest, mock, yell and scream without any search for common ground.
Sorry. No common ground for dismembering, burning or sucking the brains out of almost born humans.
“On a deeper level, there seems to be a prolonged campaign in place to violently divide the United States, perhaps to the point of outright civil war.”
Yes absolutely. “Divide and Conquer.” Maybe Roe vs Wade needs to go so more children can be indoctrinated into the LGBT segment which is running full-on now. My neighbors have “HELP TRANS KIDS” signs on their lawns. There was a “DRAG YOUR KIDS” “family” event in Texas. More confused women (who are children themselves) having to actual give birth to innocent babies means more fodder for vampire and ghouls.
I was a believer in the 10th Amendment until the scamdemic started.
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
But HOLD ON holy sh*t did they find loopholes to exploit? Oh you bet they did. It’s called “Agents In Place” meaning there is no opposition if state leaders (like governors) are part of the plan. They’ve infiltrated every facet of the US government (and I’m sure the UKs also). This is nothing new of course. Joe McCarthy learned it the hard way.
The 14th amendment is the real problem. That was the end of state’s rights and autonomy.
The “United States of America” ceased to exist in 1860. The successor state keeps the same name, but it should be called “The Forcibly United States of America,” since the south was conquered and subjugated and forced to accept terms — just like Japan in 1945.
This ruling is NOT about abortion. This is about re-energizing and reorganizing a far right political movement. In the crosshairs of the Global Elites are ANY and ALL laws that protect the rights of the working class. Any gains that the working class has made from pensions to union rights to civil liberties to civil rights to public education to women and gay rights etc….are targeted.
The Covid Plandemic is also a calculated plan by the Transnational Capitalist Class to control the global population by instituting a fear campaign that will divide the masses along ideological lines that will eventually end up in more civil unrest and violence which will be directed and controlled by a Global Police State.
At the moment, demented radical leftists are screaming, spitting and twerking to demand their rights to kill babies. I suppose that’s a change from screaming and spitting at working class truckers, patriots, anti-vaxxers and free speechers who oppose government lockdowns, forced jabs, digital ID, the Davos gang, big pharma, the transnational corporations, goverment and corporate censorship, and global WEF tyranny. It’s so weird; the workers of the world are staging their biggest revolt ever against the system and oppression, but leftists just hate and insult them even more than usual. The workers didn’t overturn Roe vs Wade, now did they? You’d think leftists would support the people, not the elites or baby-killing.
Spot on, Kit:
“The US falling into failed statehood could even act as a moral lesson to the rest of the world, and be held up as a warning about what can happen when “liberty is taken too far”, or when people are allowed to “selfishly put their own rights ahead of the public good”.”
I would say, however, that rather than what can happen when “liberty is taken too far” it’s more that people don’t know what liberty is. They think it means they can do whatever the fuck they want, like kill a bunch of kids or deprive people who don’t look just like them of their rights. Real liberty is felt when our thinking and our emotions are freed from centering around a very tight and fixed sense of self-identity; when things really don’t have to be a certain way (the way I think they should be, for example). There’s acceptance, a graciousness, a feeling of ease and lightness in going through life. That is really the condition that opens the way for seeking primarily “the public good.”

Correct, too many people confuse “libertinism” with “liberty.” In fact, many of them do not even know the word ‘libertinism,” which is what we are mired in today.
They also do not know the word “degeneracy.” They need to learn both.
You’re a 100% incorrect when you claim (very wrongly) that any powers not expressly to the Feds belong to the States.
The actual language of the US Constitution, 9th and 10th amendments, is what rights not expressly enumerated herein shall not deny other rights and powers not expressly delegated to the Federal gov’t remain with the States or the People….or the People!
Thus, the People are not subjects or slaves, not subject to the whims of the States in all matters. The People are Sovereign and they have rights, not necessarily set forth in the US Constitution, nor subject to restriction or regulation by States.
You are correct, except that the word “expressly” is not in the 10th Amendment. That is the fatal flaw in it. It allows the feds to get around what should have been an airtight statement.
The 10th amendment is fine. The 14th amendment is the problem. It changed the nature of American government from “republic of united states” to centralized, tyrannical empire run from D.C.
And “slavery” was just an excuse.
~ On the other side of the divide A, B and C argue for the sanctity of all life, regardless of context or complication. ~
Sanctity of life? really? How come then the same outfits (A B and C) are WAR PROPAGANDISTS and UNGINGED GUN LOVERS???!!
Don’t expect logical consistency from any kind of political extremist.
The New Right is both “extreme” and entirely logically consistent.
I recommend to you “Archeofuturism,” by Guillaeme Faye.
The neo-reactionaries (Curtis Yarvin, Nick Land, Peter Thiel etc.) are also extreme AND logically consistent.
I think you have some reading to do.
Biden and DemonRats don’t hide their warmongering about Ukraine, but are much more careful to disguise their love of owning all the guns. They really fear armed citizens, especially after stealing the 2020 election and selling out the US to the CCP.
War propagandists, I agree with. I am not that. But, there is no logical connection with being a ‘gun lover’ and not believing in the sanctity of all life. They are not mutually exclusive ideas.
Do people not get killed with other implements, only guns?
Just because some misuse a tool doesn’t make the rest of us lovers of death because we want that same tool for our protection.
It’s surely a surrogate. If it weren’t, there would be no need to obsessively try to market this decision as a banning of abortion complete with cartoons of naked pregnant women framed by coat hangers.
What is it a surrogate for? So-called Democrats have knickers that can’t be untwisted over having minority representation on the Supreme Court. But behind that is simmering contempt and hatred of a half of their fellow citizens, which dates as far back as the Civil War. This can’t end well without a statesman for a leader and Americans no longer get the chance to pick one, having to choose every four years between a sharp stick in the eye vs a frozen boot in the backside.
As many here state in different ways, the point of the exercise is the follow on screaching, not the policy.
“USA originated as a loose federation of quasi-independent states, with the central federal government having strictly limited powers to overrule local legislation.”
Interesting to note that still in 1835 De Tocqueville referred to the states as “Nations” as in “the nations” referring to e.g. New York, Georgia etc. And way back in the beginning the Fed Gov had virtually no power to overrule local laws; or, at least in practice, did not do so. Civil War I perhaps can be seen as a reaction of the states to their attempts to do so; e.g. the Fugitive Slave Act (1850) infuriated many in the North. We have been over this territory before!
Very true. The Declaration referred to the colonies’ future disposition as “free and independent States”, meaning sovereign nations.
I think the 1st Amendment should have stopped after, “Congress shall make no law.”
In the documentary called lethal injection – the story of vaccination abortion comes up towards the end. He says the roe v wade case had nothing to do with pro life/ choice. It was an effort to get fetal material to use in ‘vaccine’ development. Previously they had to import fetuses from Sweden: https://youtu.be/UhKyWNPJ3q0?t=8242
Look at this from a logical point of view regarding numbers.
Does little tiny Sweden have more abortions clinics than lets say the USA.?
Numbers dont add up. They do if it is the other way around.
I always found it funny that uman females prefer to defend abortion so strongly rather than be an actual responsible female and control their own sexual activities.
Another degeneration only made possible due to the “evolution” of “science and medicine”.
Yeah. The purpose of sex is not recreation, it’s procreation. In our modern practice of sexuality, the mass of humanity somehow manages to be less than animals and less than human at the same time.
Because, of course, women who get pregnant must have been having irresponsible sex. Sure couldn’t have been any irresponsibility on the part of the guy…
..don’t bother ….from the editor to some of the commenters…many retrograde men on this platform-only partially enlightened…can ramble on post after post about their oppression but have a glaring blind spot.They sound like the 1950’s male.
Possible scenario: Democrats heroically swoop in to restore abortion rights, packaged together with other “reproductive freedom” stuff like surrogacy, artificial wombs, transgender/transhumanist shit.
How did the “PRO-CHOICE” designation become the rallying cry? This is too far downstream from the real issue which CV-19 has brought to the fore ~~> Body Sovereignty. “Choice” is too supercial tho not unimportant. Abortion is between a woman and her highest power whether that is conscience or god. Choice as the battlecry has empowered the “Prolife” hypocracy”
After two-plus years of clot shots, is anyone even going to be able to get pregnant?
A Children of Men scenario in the offing?
And here in the States, they’re ready to start injecting toddlers to keep them from breeding later.
It was an appalling decision. So demonic… no informed consent. And, no right to refuse for such little ones. I pray our efforts to educate and inform will stop most parents from making this grave mistake. Children’s Health Defense is the bast resource in the US that I have found to share with people. And, there’s ways of detoxing for those who have realised their mistake… for the adults, at least… This isn’t available in the US, but I share the recipe, so it can easily be made by anyone in the US: https://wildasthewind.com/product/cleanse-essential-oil-blend/
Demonic it is. Pure evil.
Yup I’m finding a god near me pretty fucking sharpish.
Watched it last night. A few Masonic symbols, flu pandemic- world wide collapse in 2025/26. Infertility 2027.
In the documentary “Beyond Treason” of about 20 years ago, mostly about the horrific abuse of Depleted Uranium (DU), there was a factoid that leapt out and adhered to my cortex, like a particle which continues to irradiate: Bill Clinton consented thru the DoD in 1998 to some military mandate requiring soldiers to be available for up to 22 vaccines in one session. I remember that number, it was so shocking, but I would need to track it down to verify. Seems over the top, but so do many things, now. Daily? (Hourly?)
From roughly the same time period comes Madeline Albright’s infamous quip on the news show 60 Minutes regarding the death of half a million (or more) Iraqi children as a result of US policy there.
“We have heard that a half million children have died,” observed interviewer Leslie Stahl. “I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?”
Without challenging the statistics, or displaying even a tremor of remorse, Albright replied: “I think this is a very hard choice, but the price–we think the price is worth it.”
Just so many eggs for so many omelets. Why should anyone wonder about these pharma psychos. I’m sure they believe whatever deaths or injuries occur from administering their “vaccines” to helpless children (and foolish adults) is worth it. What do we know? They’re our betters, after all.
There was no “right” to abortion in Iraq. Something had to be done.
Nothing had to be done. The “war” in Iraq was a “war” of choice that materially benefitted a tiny cadre of psychopaths.
All should study the period before the fall of the Roman Empire because it’s repeating in real time.
The causes this time around are entirely different. Our problem is not corruption, but rather democracy — and egalitarianism, AKA “equality obsession.”
There seems to be a woeful lack of critical thinking here which, not so ironically, is precisely the point of this article and precisely the point of the entire “abortion debate” as well as the “hot button” issue of gun control.
First off the percent of individuals that will be impacted by this ruling (the ruling doesn’t even assert how most are interpreting it) is miniscule. In fact I would say next to zero.
There will be state programs and plenty of astroturf organizations that will provide funding and transportation for those who wish to get an abortion. In fact what we will likely find that at least financially it is going to be easier for abortions to be funded as the Democrats make this a cornerstone issue and offer funding mechanisms.
Secondly, this and gun control are the two “hot button” issues that the Dems have been milking for decades and let’s face none of these cretins care one bit about the poor, they don’t care about kids getting shot, they don’t care about women getting raped, they don’t care about….as every single piece of their legislative existence serves the elites.
And the elites use these issues as cover for the fact that they are destroying people’s lives at a pace not seen in over a century. A tried and true method to keep people distracted from this is just what we are seeing.
It is no accident that abortion and “gun control” have come front and cetner as the Democrats are looking to get hammered in November.
Some of the reactionary comments here illustrate exactly how these “hot button” issues shut down critical thought. And that’s the intent.
You’re absolutely right, as I wrote above by mentioning ‘another red herring’.
What I’d expect from the inquisitive person is to use this issue as a springboard about demographics and the various related problems.
Is the world running out energy vis-a-vis the population size? Is humanity on a collision course because it won’t have enough economically extractable energy to sustain itself? Is population getting too big in that regard or is it about to start declining on the contrary? What is the optimal global population size, if there is one? How should it be achieved and maintained? Should procreation be spontaneous or controlled so as to prevent overshoots or declines?
There are tons of other questions and issues to consider and discuss, but no, people will jerk off over the usual-suspect superficial issues. What’s worse, if one raises any of these uncomfortable questions, one is immediately attacked so as to be silenced.
Fuck! Please let me know when the next spaceship is leaving for Planet Zorg.
Jacques, once again– Peak oil is a documented hoax.
Here is just ONE documented article about locations of recoverable oil & gas.
Worldwide there are finds of both which equal many times the total amount of petrochemicals which has been used so far.
Le lien ne marche pas. C’est quel article, exactement?
Below is what I wrote to you about “Peak Oil” on the other day. Whether or not “Peak Oil” the way it’s peddled is a hoax or not, an energy vs. population balance is a legitimate issue. Why are you so scared to even discuss it? It’s not just the actual availability of fuels, it’s also about the economic feasibility of their extraction.
Here are a few sources with food for thought:
I don’t know what you mean by peak oil being hoax.
The question is as follows. 1) Are reserves of fossil fuels finite? 2) If they get replenished as per the abiotic theory, at what rate?
Re: 1) – What happens when they run out or become economically unfeasible to extract? Where will humankind get energy? Solar? How much solar energy can be captured in real time? What population size would such an amount be able to sustain?
Re: 2) – If reserves of oil/gas get replenished, presumably thanks to energy emanating from the Earth’s core in combination with solar energy, at what rate does it happen? In other words, how much energy can be sustainably extracted on an ongoing basis? And once again, what population size does that correspond to?
Invoking water is idiotic. Water circulates within our finite world in a closed cycle. None of it disappears, only gets transformed from one state to another. There might be some changes and fluctuations in how it circulates, but it stays here.
Fuels are completely different. Once you burn something, it’s gone. You could argue that the energy thus produced is not lost either, at least not completely, but it certainly does not circulate the same way as water does. The process of burning something, it turning into ashes, energy being released, and the re-creation of that something is way, way more complicated than water evaporating, turning into clouds, raining back down, and so on.
Whether or not population is declining – the premises you mention might or might not materialize – the above still applies. The issue is that people must have enough extractable energy at their disposal to survive. Presumably, if the population declines below a certain threshold, the same problem would arise even if there was enough energy. Humankind would be unable to extract it and put it into use.
Frankly, it beats me why people are so scare to discuss that and why any mention of sustainable population size is so abruptly dismissed.
Do you have a family, kids? Did you plan how many of them you’d have in regard to your means, your ability to feed them, provide for them? I’d imagine. I’d imagine that most people, at least judicious people, don’t just copulate away and produce as many children as they’re able to ejaculate/ovulate, but approach this issue rationally. Why is it such a problem on a societal scale?
I get it – it reeks of government control and, inherently, government abuse. Fine. But that’s the case with everything. No reason not to discuss this and make people aware of it.
The question you should really ask is:
(Spoiler: Oil never gets depleted)
It just had a little url error
He’s a troll.
Before we get on that ship, how ’bout we sing a quick hymn?
We’re not really running out of oil (and other resources) as a result of population size we are running out of resources due to levels of consumption.
If we eliminated a certain 80% of the population overnight it would have virtually zero impact on recourse depletion if that certain 20% continued at its current rate of consumption.
Of course that 80% is the world’s poorest while the 20% is the world’s poorest humans.
I’ve just revved up the ship to head for Zorg- or wherever. Bring your guitar.
Will do …
You don’t even understand the article. Work on your reading comprehension so you can stop projecting your personal insecurities onto others.
I believe you were talking to yourself there but then hallucinated a response to someone.
Indeed… If we read the propaganda that “news” spreaders are spewing it sounds like women won’t be able to make another abortion in the USofT. Clearly NOT the case. Since many states will still allow it and a simple road trip will make it possible.
Just like with buying guns is as easy as doing a road trip…
If you travel to another state to have an abortion, you can still be charged by the state you live in with homicide. Some states are working on such legislation.
No different than the “fugitive slave laws” of the 1850s.
If you don’t like the laws of the state you live in, move elsewhere. This is called “free exit.” That’s what the NGOs should be funding. Move all the trans, gay, drugged, baby-killing lunatics to CA, WA, DC etc. Leave the rest of us alone to live sane lives. We’ll reconquer your lands in 100-200 years when you have died out and both coasts are controlled by MS-13 gangs and organized crime.
The US will never have a “civil war” again. It is becoming clearer every day that the ruling elite has so over-clocked the system to work in their favor, that it will destroy itself and any usefulness for the 1%. That the rich should lose the authority to decide policy may seem impossible now, but look at the reality that only 25% of voting age eligibles are voting and elected officials are being elected by less than 15%. This is not a democracy or even republic. It’s a farce. Fewer are participating each year. Non-compliance disempowers these idiots and opens them to being exiled, permanently from authority to decide. As the obvious ludicrousness of their schemes, moneypoxes, moneywars and resourceless poverty for the bottom 90%, the dropouts will become self-saving, self-governing and thus self-sufficient out of necessity. An inversion of authority is in the works, thank you Universe!
But it’s good for them while it lasts…
I think you’re right about the ultimate folly of their plans, albeit for different reasons than you may have.
‘Russia was economically raped and globally humiliated’
History, as ever, has been distorted for tactical advantage. Russia did not collapse, it was a long-prepared strategy designed to disarm the West – refer HERE and HERE for the inside track.
Does Golitsyn suggest that the Communists were secretly in charge throughout the late 1980s, 1990s?
If so, I’m not sure I really buy that (though I may have misunderstood the message). Maybe the ’80s but Russia was a complete mess during the ’90s and Communism a declining force (though still apparent).
And the tinder is not dry because of climate change.
All that free available money being funneled into every level of our government. That’s the tinder.
And it’s being dried by unethical, greedy people who are only in it for themselves.
It’s become an orgy. Literally and figuratively.
There is a simple fix and we all know what it is. Follow the money and put an end to it.
Just the other day AOC was complaining that congress is sexist because she can’t afford to pay rent on two homes while most of the other members can and do. An ex bartender making $175,00.00 per year just does not cut it. So what will she to do?
Sounded like an outcry for kick backs to me.
Generally, most who run for Congress have the cash before they run.
Just like every other leftist, she wants a handout to even the playing field while playing the sex card at the same time.
She is already getting elected by funding from outside of her congressional district. And it is the same for all of the other members of the squad who were recruited by the same people and funded by the same organization.
They were recruited and funded to do one thing and that is to undermine the constitution and create discourse and division.
Outside laundered money.
Who knows where it is coming from. Soros might be a good guess.
We should perform a government abortion!
Hello Voz Obd: Best suggestion on the page. Particularly true of the “justice” system and Supreme Court.
OK, So everyone on this side of the fence knows what’s going on.
The game is as old as the hills ….divide and conquer.
“They” have told us exactly what they’re going to do and, considering their resources, I believe them.
I also believe that they have miscalculated and, when push REALLY comes to shove, people will not be willing to give up their current lifestyles.
Most people have not resisted so far because they fear loss.
When the losses happen anyway, the mood will change
The question is; On a personal level, what can I do to make my life bearable in the future assuming they win?
I am not going to put myself in danger’s way in a futile battle knowing I don’t have the support of 80% of those yet to smell the coffee, although if there are enough of us I will
I am not prepared to go self sufficient or live like a hermit.
So, what do I do?
Sell my house and buy gold that I can’t eat?
Move to a “safer” area if such a thing exists?
If anyone knows any good links or has any practical ideas I would love to hear from you
Self-sufficiency will not be an option.
The MASSES are being boiled like a frog. The process is so slow that even death when it comes, will pass unnoticed.
We shall see about that.
Thus far, people have had too much to lose and mostly complied. When they actually start losing shit, despite complying, quite a few will change their mind and push back.
The good thing about the masses is that they’re masses. As in the poem that says something about likening people to a lion waking up from slumber and rising in unvanquishable number, which ends with something like “we are many, the motherfuckers are few”.
Preparing for the worst, while hoping for something better, is always a good strategy.
Being aware of what’s going on, understanding that it might be a matter of survival, and being willing to give up whatever luxuries or conveniences we were used to is a good start.
As to how to navigate through whatever crap will be foisted on people, there is no clear, definite answer. You’ll just have to make do as you go along. Think Sun Tzu, be cunning, fly under the radar, blend with the crowd, run for the hills, toss a monkey wrench into the works when the motherfuckers aren’t looking, whatever gets you through this shitstorm.
Practically speaking, I bought a house in the woods a few years ago, relatively close to the city, best of both worlds. I can get (read: steal) wood from the forest if need be. I work at home, online. I grow some food, but unfortunately I can never be self-sufficient. Not in this climate. For that, you’d have to go southward. Maybe Mexico. Not sure about any place in Europe. Maybe Croatia or Bulgaria. Anyway, my girlfriend lives in a small eastern town where there are many local food producers. I can probably get stuff from them. I still have the option of going back to Canada and disappearing in the woods somewhere up north if a major war erupts. But I have three kids and have to stay close for some time yet.
Same situation here re: family.
If I was single and fancy free I would be VERY mobile.
Even ‘experts’ like CAF don’t have the magic pill answer but when I saw the graffiti on the wall years ago I came to Mexico and it’s really weird atm, watching everything I ever knew implode while nothing really changes here. We have no inflation – zilch, not even petrol. Nor, oddly, the shit at Walmart. We have no drag queens and wokeism is only imported by idiot tourists who always want to press their way of life on the natives, C21st Jesuits.
Unless a person is set up with a ton of land and polytunnels, they arent gonna be feeding themselves – and if they are set up, how long before the zombies come for the stash? It’s damn hard to keep birds and bugs off even my small garden – the parrots even devour the flowers.
Buuuut – here there are a ton of tiendas – that’s to say individual little shops which are livelihoods for the owners, as well as market stalls, so I figure when shtf, those people will keep going as long as poss, and if money blows up, they’ll take barter (already got cheap mini tequilas stocked).
AMLO the big chief says he’s not exporting any more food to the great hegemon in the north, nor importing their poisons, specifically Roundup but he’s also referred to pharma shit.
Well done for your forward thinking!
Interesting that Mexico is yet to be played.
I wonder if there will be outposts that don’t interest TPTB?
We shall see.
What do you do, how do you make a living? How is it in Mexico as far as safety? Do you live in an urban/rural area?
Mexico would be high on my list if I considered moving someplace else (I’m presently in Europe). I’d sure like to be somewhere by the seaside. Do you have any suggestions as to which areas are better and which one should avoid?
Im a slave/whore of Amazon, 112 books churned to date. You’ve really got to work online here. The ‘dangers’ of Mexico are highly propagandized by the US. People freaked out about me driving down here alone but I felt totally fine with it. The whole cartel thing is vastly overblown – yes there are murders but they’re turf fights.
Also a seaside lover, Ive had to give that dream up as the beach towns are a humid hell in the summer months. That said you could live higher within driving distance of the beach around the beach towns in Jalisco. Or if heat doesnt bother you, Merida and outlying towns are great. I’ve moved around a bit over the years to locate my ideal spot. So I live at altitude now, first in a famous town, San Miguel de Allende, very beautiful but swamped by the worst rentier yanks imposing their ideals on the residents. And with a rather barren geography.
Now I’m far south in another lovely locale with colonial buildings and a buzzing society when/if required. Coffee and cacao grow here in the mountains and plenty of agriculture. I did intend to build in the country, but with the present situation decided to be in town, less exposed as a gringa solita should shtf. Also the cheapest place to live – $20 for a week’s meat and veg at the organic market. Rent is $400 for a house, all bills included.
If you have any Q i’d be happy to offer remarks.
Thanks. Sounds good. I’m staying put where I am for the moment, but things could change. Central Europe kinda looks like the worst place to be right now. Would you send me your e-mail if maybe I have questions later …? [email protected]
Being as independent as possible will certainly give more options, but in reality few people can achieve this.
Debt free, off grid, reliant on family resources alone ~ that is the stuff of multimillionaires.
And humans are meant to be social.
The crucial thing is to make connections.
Real contact that is, not virtual.
The past couple of years has made this, human-to-human contact, a lot more difficult & a whole lot more easy to bypass.
And most of the people we need to make connections with, are amongst the “New Normal”.
Distasteful as it seems, it will be necessary.
Many an Untermensch survived throughout Nazi Europe, because they were sheltered by, were friends of, & /or able to pass as, a regular citizen.
Of course it’s not wise to be close to a “full Karen”.
Fortunately they are in the minority, albeit a very vocal minority.
Unfortunately there’s often no way of telling just how brainwashed someone might be, until it’s too late.
Even so, I think having connection at some level may make all the difference (I am talking about a totalitarian takeover scenario here), whether or not your deviancy gets reported in exchange for 30 silver social credits.
Veiling one’s personal stances may be the wisest course – some sheep might like to talk about controversial issues (although a lot just want to bury their heads)
– but really they are too far gone to be reached.
My own personal views are probably known to enough people to get me sent to a “Resilience Centre”.
But after I started to keep my opinions to myself, I could listen & learn.
– a colleague, whom I’d previously considered open minded, complained about some neighbours having a party during the lockdowns, and that the only reason they didn’t report them was because said neighbours would have known who it was who called the constabulary (clearly they were already established as the local busybodies).
– a family friend expressed disgust at a son-in-law who is *gasp* an antivaxxer! But still he is family, and father of their adored grandchildren, so what can they do?
Despite differences, keeping in touch, literally, could be key to surviving & thriving in the New World Order
Don’t pick any Hill (or ghetto) to die on.
Be like water, flexible, with options.
What that means in actuality will depend on how the Great Reset manifests, and where the cracks are.
Thanks for your thoughts.
The problem I have is I’m not very good at keeping my own council!
Maybe it’s a trait I’ll have to learn but after a lifetime of doing my own thing and now being in a position to retire and travel and do the things I wanted to I’m as mad as hell that someone is finally going to tame me.
I don’t want a hill to die on but I want to be controlled even less.
My mum, little girl, survived thanks to being sheltered while grandpa/grandma were dead/in concentration camp for fighting in the Resistance.
The ruling sets up silencing the argument of “my body my choice” for coming mandatory injections.
My thought as well.
Would you care to flesh out your argument a little more? I somewhat disagree, but I’d like to understand your argument better. What is your reasoning?
As usual, it’ll be when we start seeing the “solutions” that it’ll be clearer what’s going on here. It’s early days yet – but look what the Fraud had ready:
Funny how she had no apparent problem with the Supreme Court when they were coming up with the ‘correct’ decisions. Abortion should always have been a question for legislatures. Since the US Constitution makes no explicit reference to it, in the USA that means state legislatures under the Reserve Powers’ clause.The role of the courts is to apply those laws to individual cases.
BTW one of the first actions of ‘Philip Dru: Administrator’ was to remove the Court’s power to rule laws unconstitutional. He also made sacking judges easier.
I guess the Court was legitimate when it refused to take up the 2020 election fraud cases.
“Since the US Constitution makes no explicit reference to it, in the USA that means state legislatures under the Reserve Powers’ clause”
Great point, Edwige. Fantastic.
I had a good laugh perusing that article.
I would counter that the whole federal edifice is illegitimate. How do you like them apples, Jill?
She complains that we now have a tyranny of the minority. Would the author be more comfortable if we had a tyranny of the majority? She might like that better, except if she was in the minority. Then she might not like it so much.
But, typical of people who scream about “our democracy”, she doesn’t even grok that we aren’t supposed to have a ‘democracy’. That’s not how the system was set up. As Glenn Greenwald pointed out a while ago, our Constitution is rife with anti-majoritarian provisions, precisely so we don’t have a tyranny of the majority.
A la Spooner, I consider the whole mess illegitimate. We would have been better off under the Articles of Confederation, where the general government was given no powers of taxation and had to beg the States for even the morsels that they got. We would never have been a ‘force for good in the world’, nor the ‘arsenal of democracy’ (there’s that damned word again), but we would have remained a much freer people than we are today.
The “sanctity of life” argument pretty much falls flat on its face when humans continue to slaughter one another on the battlefields of centralized commerce. Wars are demographic control of commerce. Let’s clap for the dead…I guess the formality of murdering millions is preferable to allowing the free will of individuals…
From the article: “Simply put, the Constitution lays out all the powers of the federal government, and anything not specifically mentioned therein is de facto a matter for states on an individual basis.” True.
The Supreme Court has been a supreme joke since the elimination of the Original 13th Amendment. The term Esquire defines what?
Does the “sanctity of life” apply to optional wars to sustain the petroleum, armament, construction and other industries, and the “market”?
Hello mgeo: The sanctity of life runs about as deep as most people’s wallets.

As far as polarization, will they pit people against one another to the point where they explode? Good question. Well, they can always bring in another virus, can’t they.
It’s all moving apace now.
2nd amendment and abortion in in the same week. The two most divisive subjects in US!
Worldwide travel, fuel, food supply, gas, polio, moneypox.
I think they’re sowing the seeds for the first cold snap in the coming winter when supplies can be turned off when we are at our most vulnerable.
It hadn’t occurred to me before but in UK log burners are banned in a lot of areas.
They wouldn’t want you to be self sufficient in warmth now, would they?
“2nd amendment and abortion in in the same week. The two most divisive subjects in US!”
They need to find a way to work race into the equation. Maybe get rid of affirmative action/equity programs.
I blocked my fireplace up some years ago. I’m looking into recommissioning it.
Make’s me wonder what’s coming next?
I agree with everything you say… there has been a colossal effort to upset the apple cart in every optimally incendiary way in recent years… all a distraction from what ‘they’ are rolling out behind the scenes… but… then there’s this: Without Nature We Will Die… But, welcome to the Metaverse / Matrix, anyway…https://rachelwild.substack.com/p/without-nature-we-will-die
Both sides are entrenched to the point of hysteria ? Really ? Should I be moderately concerned about sanctity of life ?
My position on abortion is it’s up to the woman with an unwanted pregnancy – when men can get pregnant they can have a say.
Try and watch The Janes and see what it used to be like before Roe v Wade
Marilyn, I agree with you 100%. I just don’t see where men should have a say in this, since it’s women who must carry a fetus for 9 months and suffer the risks associated with childbirth – plus whatever the stigma du jour might be connected with having a child.
And after forcing the woman to bear the child, the man still might disown the child if he suspects the baby “isn’t his.”
It is up to the woman to decide, however the problem is you’re asking the state to assist you.
As of 2021 men can get pregnant. Get with the program.
It could be a ploy to ‘nudge’ people towards a UN Digital-ID with the possibility of voting on contentious ESG issues, in the near future, with their Metaverse-twin, provided of course that your ESG ‘score’ meets the minimum global requirement.
All issues of any importance are never REALLY about one thing – such engineered events are function-stacked to advance multiple goals.
Indeed there is a massive trolling exercise happening in the US it seems that was my first thought, unfortunately, there will be some women needing abortions that will be caught in the crossfire no doubt, however, there are always loopholes so hopefully, these women will find sympathetic doctors. However predominantly this is about creating further division and diversionary tactics away from the covid/vax crimes which are unraveling at warp speed now.
I’ve stopped arguing with people and try to prize people away from their TVs and phones and into nature, or small gatherings and talk of joyful things. A long walk in nature is a powerful antidote. We must not allow them to occupy our minds.
I’m with you all the way! It’s as though I wrote this for you! x x x Without Nature We Will Die… But, welcome to the Metaverse / Matrix, anyway…https://rachelwild.substack.com/p/without-nature-we-will-die
Now that I think about this carefully, this is probably a step towards taking away bodily autonomy from everyone. The democratic handwringing and crocodile tears are theatre like everything else. Someone who really wants an abortion will somehow try for it anyway, either dangerously or safely. In an earlier comment (which seems to be perpetually pending) I wrote that RvW is a confused essay which guaranteed the right to terminate a pregnancy only in the first trimester. But at least it allowed for that.
One thing the “the US Empire is behind everything” cohort have to explain: why is this going on within the US?…
Don’t nations wanting to expand or consolidate empires usually consider a united home front a prerequisite to that goal? Or do they go to insane lengths to exacerbate internal divisions? Do they wreck their internal economies?… promote trans men to admirals?… weaken their internal security forces (“defund the Police”)?… de-legitimise their own political system?… and so forth.
Anyway one thing seems certain: the MSM who’ve recently been issuing multiple reminders that convid hasn’t gone away won’t be calling these protests “super-spreader events”. They won’t be calling protesters outside SCJs’ homes “insurrectionists” or pointing out they are in violation of federal laws.
The people who screech most hysterically about RvW are the same ones who don’t see a problem with violating bodily autonomy of all humans with forced experimental injections.
As this article points out the recent ruling only states the Constitution does not talk about abortion.
Held: The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.
I had always thought RvW was some brilliant legislative reading but upon ploughing through it, I find it to be bizarre and confusing. RvW only says States may impose no abortion restriction in the first trimester based on the logic that (at the time), risk of mortality from first trimester abortion was lower then risk of mortality of the mother during childbirth. So that needed to be overturned in an and of itself. Why only first trimester????
In fact RvW waffles around a lot and says that the State MAY proscribe abortion once a fetus is viable in order to protect “potentiality of life”.
RvW says: article 1196 of the Texas Criminal Code criminalizing abortion needs to be struck down in toto otherwise one will be left with a half-arsed article. It then goes onto say: Texas may impose statutory limitations on abortion in the LATER stages of pregnancy. Texas was claiming that life begins at conception….I think that’s way beyond Texas’ pay grade to pontificate on when life begins.
The recent ruling says that the court got a lot of things wrong in RvW and I can’t disagree with that.
I think the biggest problem in this whole saga is “Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act”….
“That said, the use of abortions as a form of contraception is both obscene and impractical”
I’ve never heard of any rational, normal person using abortion as a form of contraception. Why subject yourself to a complex, painful and possibly dangerous method unless as a last resort when all else has already failed?
I do know that some women not using contraception who take the risk of having to have abortions with sexual partners refusing to use condoms.
I do know that some women not using contraception take the risk of having to have abortions with sexual partners refusing to use condoms.
Is this Russian propaganda ?
Russian forces start shelling Kiev.
I don’t believe that there’s been any “continuous bombardment” of Kiev. Strikes on suspected weapons stashes, yes
les online, I think Vagabard’s right. However, I was surprised to see that Ukraine claimed yesterday that several locations in Sumy oblast were under bombardment & AFAIK this is true. If Russian troops enter Sumy oblast there is only one more separating Russian forces from Kiev oblast– and the Russian/Belarusian armies have already merged or are in the process.
Apparently there are enough NATO troops massed in Poland to concern Belarus’s Lukashenko; he is saying publicly that Putin has assured him that an attack on Belarus w/b considered an attack on Russia.
There might be a reason for Russia to move on Kiev and/or try to finish Ukraine’s defeat quickly: US & UK are talking about supply missiles/rockets w 500 km range. he French have gotten cold feet– appears their parliament will try to control their WEF head of state Macron.
EU’s apparently gotten cold feet about the blockade of Kaliningrad too. They’ve signalled they’re going to instruct Lithuania to let Russia transport goods “from one part of Russia to another part of Russia”.
Cairnsnews looks like an informative site; I’ll start following them too.
..I think there’s a lot of mis-direction going on, like the mis-direction that occurred during the lead-up the the US war against Saddam’s Iraq…
I have absolutely no doubt the US strategy is solely premised on achieving regime change in Russia: a change to a regime that is very favourable to giving global corporations access to Russia’s vast natural wealth, and enables further US military encirclement of China …
US strategy in the Ukraine is premised on weakening / wearing down Russia’s military… I take particular note of reports of Kiev being supplied with mobile howitzers, self-propelled missile launchers, and especially air-defense systems…
The success of Kiev’s attempt to regain control of the “break-away
regions” depends on denying Russia its current air superiority. The air forces role will become limited to mainly defending the “break-away regions”…
I’m only an armchair strategist. I’ve already said The Ukraine troops are being sacrificed simply to send more bodybags of Russian troops sent home – fighting in the east keeps our attention away from the armaments build-up in the west…
Kiev’s most likely tactic will be to use highly mobile forces for (guerrilla) hit-and-run intrusions, and indiscriminate shelling of civilian centres in eastern Ukraine if Russia’s air superiority is diminished to a defensive role…
I’m most curious about NATO member Romania ,.No reports of weapons being shipped to, stockpiled in Romania to re-supply the anti-Russia forces ? But we hear of NATO member Poland, saying and doing things to get our attentions ?
But no reports of weapons being shipped to and stockpiled in Poland !
The fight by Kiev to regain control over the “break-away regions” will be protracted and destructive, especially of population centres.(“Bow to Kiev or be destroyed”) If it weakens Russia militarily and precipitates favourable Regime Change in Moscow, the destruction and deaths will be considered “Worth it”.
