Sotomayor says fetus’ are brain dead!

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor rejected the idea that a fetus that has the ability to move and react to pain is a human life that should be protected from abortion.

“Virtually every state defines a brain death as death,” Sotomayor, appointed by former President Barack Obama, said during oral arguments in a potential landmark abortion rights case Wednesday, as the state of Mississippi defended an abortion restriction law that directly challenges Roe v. Wade.

“Yet, the literature is filled with episodes of people who are completely and utterly brain dead responding to stimuli,” Sotomayor continued. “There’s about 40 percent of dead people who, if you touch their feet, the foot will recoil. There are spontaneous acts by dead brain people. So I don’t think that a response to — by a fetus necessarily proves that there’s a sensation of pain or that there’s consciousness.”

Sotomayor also said that she believes the idea that a fetus is a human life is a “religious view.”

Sotomayor was criticized for her remarks by conservatives on social media including Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich.

“Justice Sotomayor is comparing babies in the womb to dead people,” Pavlich tweeted.

“Sotomayor is revealing just how poor the pro-Roe arguments are,” Breitbart News Senior Editor Joel Pollak tweeted. “Inadvertently, of course”

“Oh good grief, Sotomayor playing the ‘brain death’ card now,” Ethics and Public Policy Center Director Ryan T. Anderson tweeted. There is no dispute about whether or not an unborn the baby is in fact a baby, a living human being. It’s not a debate about when the baby is viable outside a womb, it’s a question about whether the baby’s life matters.”

The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, centers on the law, which bans most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, much sooner than the current legal standard, which prohibits abortion bans prior to fetal viability — roughly 23 to 24 weeks into pregnancy.

Justice Thomas nails Pro-Abortion Lawyers

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was sworn in on October 23, 1991. Beginning in 1996, he would take a 10-year break from asking questions from the bench, until the first case before the Court following the death of Chief Justice Antonin Scalia, his ideological soul mate.

While still measured, Thomas has been known to take lawyers to the mat when he sees fit to do so. Wednesday morning’s oral arguments in the Mississippi abortion case — that threatens to weaken Roe v. Wade if not overturn it — provided Justice Thomas the perfect opportunity to do just that, with a round of tough questions for the “pro-choice” lawyers.

Here’s a perfect example.

Justice Thomas: Does a mother have a right to ingest drugs and harm a previable baby? Can the state bring child neglect charges against the mother?

Pro-abortion attorney Rikelman: That’s not what this case is about, but a woman has a right to make choices about her body.

Thomas later asked:

“Would you specifically tell me, specifically state what the right is, is it specifically abortion? Is it a liberty? Is it liberty? Is it autonomy? Is it privacy?”

Jack Posobiec, the senior editor at Human Events, weighed in on Thomas’s performance, as well.

Thomas is reeling them in now

He’s asking them to tell him where any of this is written in the Constitution

Abortion Beckys are flailing about

They know there is no textual basis for Roe v Wade

Why do we need 85 thousand new IRS agents?

Guest, Dan Pilla of TaxHelpOnline.com explains the most common “GOTCHA” TAX reporting mistakes that people make.

New tax laws, Why do we need 85 thousand new Agents. Who are they going to catch

The tax code is SO huge, that most agents couldn’t possibly know all the law. Plus, they don’t go by the “law”, they go by the tax manual.

The decisions of tax auditors are NEVER final. You always have the write to appeal. The appeals office is tasked with trying to negotiate a settlement. Still not final. After that, you can take it to tax court and have it heard. The higher up the ladder you go in the IRS, the better chance you have of an accurate and fair assessment.

City of Oakland does an about face on defunding police

The Oakland Police Department will increase its presence amid a surge in violence that has included roving armed caravans, an uptick in homicides and brazen smash-and-grab burglaries while city leaders want to reverse planned budget cuts set to take effect next year as it follows other liberal cities changing course to address crime.

The department tweeted Sunday that tactical teams will assist patrols officers in responding to the caravans, illegal sideshows and other violent crimes. The announcement came days after a retired police officer working as a security guard was shot and killed while protecting a local television news crew during an armed robbery.

Kevin Nishita died from his injuries Saturday morning after he was shot days earlier while with a KRON-TV crew working on a story about a recent smash-and-grab incident. His death brought the city’s murder toll to 127 this year.

The most recent murder occurred Sunday as a man was shot and killed while confronting a car burglary suspect.

While speaking with city leaders on Monday, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf said she will push for more police officers and said she will present a plan to the city council to maintain department levels at a minimum of 678 officers in an effort to re-start the city’s Ceasefire crime reduction program.

“That analysis will make the case that additional police staffing is needed in the wake of this violent spree,” Schaaf said during a virtual meeting. “We know what has worked in the past. There is nothing progressive about unbridled gun violence.”

She noted that the COVID-19 pandemic “completely interrupted” the police training and recruitment process. Her recommendations on increased police staffing and services will be available Friday.

One recommendation will be to add an additional academy class and a proposal to walk back police budget cuts such as the freezing of 50 police department positions beginning next summer.

“It’s heartbreaking and it’s even traumatizing to hear of how many lives have been lost to violence,” said Councilwoman Treva Reid, who represents east Oakland, which has seen a disproportionate amount of the growing violence in the city. “It has gripped our community.”

Board Retaliates over teacher who exposed CRT

An Indianapolis school administrator who went viral for explaining how his district is pushing Critical Race Theory on children has been locked out of his email and Google Drive accounts and been told to work from home because he was causing other staff members “anxiety.”

“As of one hour ago, Indianapolis Public Schools has suspended my access to email & Google Drive,” Indianapolis district science coordinator, instructional coach, and administrator Tony Kinnett posted on Twitter along with a screenshot.

“I’ve been required to work from home the last two weeks, as staff reportedly have ‘clinical anxiety’ over working with me,” Kinnett added. “When I came to get books from my office, phone calls were made to each team member so they’d be clear of the building.

Kinnett added that he has been banned from going to any school building or from hosting professional development while also pledging to continue to release more information that he has already downloaded from the district.

“It’s a good thing I downloaded all of the other racist documents & videos from the public server weeks ago,” Kinnett added in the Twitter thread.

Kinnett went viral earlier this month after posting a video outlining how Critical Race Theory is taught in Indianapolis schools and said that administrators are “lying” when they say otherwise.

Kinnett, an award-winning teacher, confirmed to Fox News Digital that he has been put on paid leave due to his colleagues suffering from “clinical anxiety.” Additionally, Kinnett says he was locked out of his email account on Wednesday and his key card to enter school buildings was turned off.

“They’ve apparently gotten tons of emails and texts and calls from people who have refused to work with me, if they have to work with me they will walk,” Kinnett explained. “I have been banned from coming into their buildings and they are terrified I am going to pull out my phone and record their classes.”

Why hasn’t Covid hit Africa as hard as California?

At a busy market in a poor township outside Harare this week, Nyasha Ndou kept his mask in his pocket, as hundreds of other people, mostly unmasked, jostled to buy and sell fruit and vegetables displayed on wooden tables and plastic sheets. As in much of Zimbabwe, here the coronavirus is quickly being relegated to the past, as political rallies, concerts and home gatherings have returned.

“COVID-19 is gone, when did you last hear of anyone who has died of COVID-19?” Ndou said. “The mask is to protect my pocket,” he said. “The police demand bribes so I lose money if I don’t move around with a mask.” Earlier this week, Zimbabwe recorded just 33 new COVID-19 cases and zero deaths, in line with a recent fall in the disease across the continent, where World Health Organization data show that infections have been dropping since July.

When the coronavirus first emerged last year, health officials feared the pandemic would sweep across Africa, killing millions. Although it’s still unclear what COVID-19’s ultimate toll will be, that catastrophic scenario has yet to materialize in Zimbabwe or much of the continent.

Scientists emphasize that obtaining accurate COVID-19 data, particularly in African countries with patchy surveillance, is extremely difficult, and warn that declining coronavirus trends could easily be reversed.

But there is something “mysterious” going on in Africa that is puzzling scientists, said Wafaa El-Sadr, chair of global health at Columbia University. “Africa doesn’t have the vaccines and the resources to fight COVID-19 that they have in Europe and the U.S., but somehow they seem to be doing better,” she said.

Fewer than 6% of people in Africa are vaccinated. For months, the WHO has described Africa as “one of the least affected regions in the world” in its weekly pandemic reports.

Some researchers say the continent’s younger population — the average age is 20 versus about 43 in Western Europe — in addition to their lower rates of urbanization and tendency to spend time outdoors, may have spared it the more lethal effects of the virus so far. Several studies are probing whether there might be other explanations, including genetic reasons or past infection with parasitic diseases.

Exposing ISIS is a No No again!

A woman who lived through kidnapping and sexual slavery at the hands of ISIS had an event cancelled by a Canadian school board due to fears of “Islamophobia.”

Twenty-eight-year-old Nadia Murad was scheduled to visit with students from 600 different schools to speak about her upcoming book, “The Last Girl: My Story Of Captivity,” which documents the horrific treatment she suffered from ISIS but was told by the Toronto School District that her event could not be held because it could “foster Islamophobia”, according to the Telegraph.

The decision to cancel the event was made by Toronto School Board Superintendent Helen Fisher, who argued that the book could be viewed as offensive to Muslims. The Toronto District School Board is Canada’s largest, and the fourth largest in North America.

Murad’s book tells how she escaped the Islamic State after being taken from her home and sold into sexual slavery where she was raped and tortured at the age of 14.

At least one district parent, who identified herself as Tanya Lee, has criticized the school district for the move.

“This is what the Islamic State means. It is a terrorist organization. It has nothing to do with ordinary Muslims. The Toronto school board should be aware of the difference,” Lee said.

Murad won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2018 and founded Nadia’s Initiative, through which she is a leading advocate for survivors of sexual exploitation and genocide.

Let MORE lock downs begin!

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul issued a state of emergency order on Friday in response to the identification of the COVID-19 omicron variant.

The emergency order is intended to increase hospital capacity in New York and will last until at least Jan. 15, when it will be reassessed.

According to a copy of the order, the state will utilize the “surge and flex system,” which allows the Department of Health to limit non-essential and non-urgent hospital procedures in situations where a hospital has less than 10% staffed bed capacity.

The new hospital procedures will take effect Dec. 3.

Gov. Hochul said while the omicron variant hasn’t been detected in New York state, preparations need to be made, adding that the state is seeing “warning signs” of a potential spike in cases.

“We’ve taken extraordinary action to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and combat this pandemic. However, we continue to see warning signs of spikes this upcoming winter, and while the new Omicron variant has yet to be detected in New York State, it’s coming,” Gov. Hochul said in a press release.

“In preparation, I am announcing urgent steps today to expand hospital capacity and help ensure our hospital systems can tackle any challenges posed by the pandemic as we head into the winter months,” Hochul added. “The vaccine remains one of our greatest weapons in fighting the pandemic, and I encourage every New Yorker to get vaccinated, and get the booster if you’re fully vaccinated.”

The move comes after President Biden announced a restriction on travel from South Africa and seven other countries in the region beginning Monday.

The World Health Organization announced Friday that the omicron variant has a “large number of mutations … some of which are concerning.”

The variant has been detected in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi.

Florida + No Masks = No Corona

Florida is reporting the lowest amount of coronavirus cases per capita in the nation after Gov. Ron DeSantis was widely criticized by media outlets for his handling of the virus.

The Sunshine State reported a daily average of 1,393 coronavirus cases as of Friday, six per 100,000, which was a two percent decrease over the last two weeks.

DeSantis has been slammed by critics in the media since the start of the pandemic over his opposition to government-imposed mask and vaccine mandates. In 2020, DeSantis was accused by a Democratic politician of going on a “killing spree” for opposing mask mandates and a Vanity Fair headline from September of this year referred to the governor as an “angel of death.”

At the same time Florida reported the lowest amount of new cases in the country per capita, coronavirus cases are surging in many states where strict lockdown orders were issued by Democratic governors.

Michigan, where Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer imposed some of the most controversial restrictions in the nation during the height of the pandemic, leads the nation in daily coronavirus cases per capita.

New York is reporting a daily average of 6,666 cases which amounts to 34 per 100,000.

Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat who resigned in disgrace earlier this year, was widely praised by the media for his handling of the coronavirus and even received an Emmy Award.

“It just shows once again the success of Governor DeSantis’s science based and data based policies,” DeSantis Press Secretary Christina Pushaw told Fox News Digital about the case levels in Florida. “He’s always made decisions based on the data and that continued even during the Delta surge this summer what he realized would help was not mask mandates in school or lockdowns but provide treatment that actually works.”

Biden says travel bans are XENOPHOBIC – REALLY?

President Joe Biden has imposed  travel restrictions into the United States due to coronavirus fears despite previously slamming former President Trump as xenophobic for doing the same thing in 2020.

“We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus,” Biden tweeted as a presidential candidate last year the day after Trump imposed travel restrictions from China into the United States in response to the spread of the coronavirus. “We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency.”

The day before, in addition to the travel restriction from China, Trump issued a proclamation extending his “travel ban” to six additional countries that included Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Nigeria, Sudan, and Tanzania.

Trump’s initial travel ban, issued in 2017, set new criteria for visa applicants and refugees from six predominantly Muslim countries over concerns that individuals coming from those countries could not be properly vetted.

Biden later attempted to walk back the xenophobic comment and claimed during a debate that he was making a broad point about xenophobia and not directly referring to the travel ban.

“A wall will not stop the coronavirus,” Biden tweeted in March of 2020. “Banning all travel from Europe — or any other part of the world — will not stop it. This disease could impact every nation and any person on the planet — and we need a plan to combat it.”

Biden also referred to Trump’s temporary immigration ban from certain African countries as a “disgrace.”

Vice-President Kamala Harris also criticized Trump on that issue calling the move “Un-American.”

On Friday, the Biden administration announced it is restricting travel into the United States from several African countries in response to a new strain of the coronavirus known as the Omicron variant.

The travel restrictions will apply to South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique, and Malawi.

Salvation Army goes full WOKE!

A Salvation Army guide aimed at “courageous conversations about racism” asks “White Americans” to “stop trying to be ‘colorblind.’”

The guide, “Let’s Talk About Racism,” was released in April and created by the Salvation Army International Social Justice Commission. It is meant to provide “internal dialogue” on the issue of racism among members of the Salvation Army.

“While many Salvationists have acted firmly and courageously against racism, The Salvation Army acknowledges with regret, that Salvationists have sometimes shared in the sins of racism and conformed to economic, organizational and social pressures that perpetuate racism,” the guide states.

The guide’s “introduction” states that Christians need to “evaluate” racist attitudes and practices.

“There is an urgent need for Christians to evaluate racist attitudes and practices in light of our faith and to live faithfully in today’s world. We need to seek the wisdom and grace of God in every part of our lives,” the guide states.

The guide, first reported on the Daily Wire, also asks salvationists to apologize for their racism, stating it is “necessary if we want to move towards racial reconciliation.”

Additionally, the guide says “White culture” has challenges it needs to overcome, including “denial of racism,” “defensiveness about race,” and states that “White Americans” need to “stop trying to be ‘colorblind.’”

“Stop trying to be ‘colorblind,'” the guide states. “While this might sound helpful, it actually ignores the God-given differences we all possess, as well as the beautiful cultures of our Black and Brown brothers and sisters. Instead of trying to be colorblind, try seeing the beauty in our differences, and welcome them into your homes, churches and workplaces.”

Under the “resources” section, the guide lists books from authors such as Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo.

The Salvation Army’s website also displays a “Study Guide on Racism” which claims that “racism can be so entrenched in institutions and culture that people can unintentionally and unwittingly perpetuate racial division.”

“For instance, devout Christians who naively use racial epithets or a well-intentioned Sunday school curriculum that only uses white photography and imagery,” the guide states.

Seattle election shows people have had it!

The Nov. 2 election dealt a resounding defeat for progressives in Seattle, one of America’s most progressive cities. Candidates for mayor, city council and city attorney, who supported defunding the Seattle Police Department, were easily beaten by three centrist candidates who advocated for adding police officers.

Among the winners was Ann Davison, who defeated abolitionist and Democratic candidate Nicole Thomas Kennedy for city attorney. With her win, Davison becomes the first Republican elected in Seattle in 34 years.

“Our rules of law need to matter so businesses can operate and they don’t have workers who feel unsafe at their workplace,” said Davison.

Kennedy Thomas, a public defender, advocated ending the prosecution of misdemeanor crimes. During the race she became best known for her anti-police tweets made during violent protests after the killing of George Floyd. She tweeted about her “rabid hatred for police” and called the people who fired a mortar at the East Precinct and set fire to a youth jail “heroes.”

Homelessness was the other big issue. Nearly 12,000 people are unsheltered in Seattle. The problem has been made worse by the pandemic and, critics say, a city council that did away with navigation teams charged with clearing illegal and dangerous encampments.

Jon Scholes, president of the Downtown Seattle Association, was happy with the election outcome, but now he wants Seattle to reverse course.

“I think you’re going to see results on the streets, in our parks, fewer people in need,” Scholes said. “You’re going to see more police officers out in the neighborhood. You’re going to want to see more small businesses open and thriving.”

Despite the victory for law and order in a city that has seen a spike in murders, the newly elected leaders still face significant obstacles. The city council is considering a proposal to cut $10 million from Seattle police in the outgoing mayor’s budget. Council President Lorena Gonzalez, who was defeated by Bruce Harrell for mayor by 18 points, just offered a budget amendment that would eliminate 101 officer positions. It was defeated, but only narrowly on a 5-4 vote.

Virginia lost due to AOC non involvement!

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said Democrats made a “mistake” by not using her and fellow progressives during the Virginia gubernatorial race, where Republican Glenn Youngkin narrowly defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe.

During an interview with The New York Times published Monday, Ocasio-Cortez complained that she wasn’t invited to campaign with McAuliffe or help out with the race in any way.

“Before the Virginia elections, it was very clear that our help and our participation was not wanted or asked for, which is fine. I’m not here to tell people how to run their races,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “But at the same time, to consider the members here that have some of the tightest relationships to our political base as just a uniform liability – and not something that can be selectively deployed, or consulted, or anything – I think it’s just sad. I think it was a mistake.

“And we saw a big youth turnout collapse,” she continued. “Not a single person asked me to send an email, not even to my own list. And then they turn around and say, ‘It’s their fault.’ When I think it was communicated quite expressly that we were unwelcome to pitch in.

“The idea that we just accept a collapse in youth turnout – and essentially turn it into a self-fulfilling prophecy – in times when races are decided by such narrow margin points: I think it’s ill advised,” she added.

McAuliffe, who previously served one term in the Virginia governor’s seat from 2014 to 2018, held onto a single-digit lead over Youngkin in the months leading up to Election Day, but was ultimately defeated even after campaigning with President Biden, Vice President Harris, former President Obama, and other top Democrats.

The win for Youngkin is now seen as a referendum on Biden’s administration as well as liberal ideologies that have spread under his administration.
