We’re not the only one’s killing babies: Mexico’s supreme court ruled on Thursday that the protection of “life from conception” was unconstitutional, doubling down on its decision earlier this week that abortion was not a crime. The ruling has implications for Mexican states that have laws to defend a right to life from conception and put women at risk of prosecution for aborting a pregnancy. The U.S. constitution does not specifically mention abortion or right to life, it appears the Mexican does.
Follow the money: Russia’s embassy in Kabul said on Monday that Afghan President Ashraf Ghani had fled the country with four cars and a helicopter full of cash and had to leave some money behind as it would not all fit. Ghani’s current whereabouts are unknown. Now the u.n. reports Afghanistan’s population of 38 million people risks being plunged into near-universal poverty faced with a “catastrophic deterioration” of the country’s heavily aid-dependent economy. And guess who will come to their $$ aid, and who will benefit.
During his speech last week, Uncle Joe repeatedly stated, “This is not about your rights”. And he was absolutely correct. His mandates and never-ending Executive Orders have nullified all your rights. We no longer have a Republic. You no longer have any rights.
Really? : Portland, Oregon, has named its newest pedestrian crossing after Homer Simpson’s next-door nemesis, Ned Flanders. The city confirmed it had named the crossing after the character, who it described as a “beloved cartoon optimist, left-hander, beleaguered friend of Homer Simpson, and avatar of neighborliness.” A Cartoon Character. Portland. It Makes sense.
Credit when due: One of my favorite character actors is Steve Buscemi. Very few know that on 9/11/01 he spent 5 days working as a volunteer fireman at Ground Zero. Buscemi has revealed that he has experienced post-traumatic stress disorder after heroically helping rescue survivors in the aftermath of the that terror attacks. Buscemi worked as a firefighter in the 80’s. “I was only there for like five days, but when I stopped going and tried to just live my life again, it was really, really hard.” “Only five days”? Thank you, sir. Thank you.
Working hard for their money: They call them “public servants,” although that usage is a bit quaint in this age of staggeringly corrupt, self-serving politicians, and it’s good to know that Biden White House staffers are hard at work, doing everything they can to improve the lot of Americans and protect our nation and its allies. People in the Biden administration are huge Harry Potter fans” and are spending a lot of time choosing “magic spirit animals” for themselves. According to Politico, “rapid response director Mike Gwin is a bald eagle. Deputy press secretary Andrew Bates is a black stallion. Assistant press secretary Vedant Patel is an orca whale. Press assistant Natalie Austinis a Siberian husky. Deputy press secretary Chris Meagher is technically a bear. Personally, I think they should all identify as a magical turd.
