Biden Signs Executive Order to Help Women Cross State Lines for Abortions


President Joe Biden on Wednesday signed an executive order to help women cross state borders to receive abortions.

This marks the president's second executive order aimed at preserving abortion rights since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade, which effectively allowed states to implement their own abortion restrictions. The new directive calls on the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to "consider" allowing Medicaid funds to be used for facilitating out-of-state abortion travel. Before signing the order, Biden said that Republicans "don’t have a clue about the power of American women" and that "they found out" on Tuesday night after Kansas voted against removing abortion protections from its state constitution.

Biden has been facing pressure from Democrats to pass stronger federal laws that protect abortion rights. The Justice Department on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against Idaho’s contentious abortion ban, marking the Biden administration's first legal action against state-enforced abortion restrictions. While Democrats are attempting to codify federal abortion protections, several corporations have pledged to cover their employees' travel costs for out-of-state abortions.

Left-rated coverage highlighted reports of women who "need medical care for miscarriages" being denied by doctors that are struggling to navigate "byzantine" abortion restrictions. Right-rated coverage accentuated how allocating Medicaid funding to abortion travel would be "likely violating" the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the federal financing of abortion.

Religious Liberty Group Warns Biden Rule Would Force Trans Surgeries, Abortions. They’re Fighting It In Court.


“A hospital that would perform a hysterectomy for a woman with uterine cancer would also have to perform a hysterectomy for a woman who wants to transition to living as a man,” Goodrich said. “If not, [it would be] guilty of sex discrimination and subject to multi-million-dollar penalties.”

The legal expert said doctors who provide care to women who miscarry, which sometimes includes a dilation and curettage (D&C), could be compelled to perform the procedure on a living baby, which is an abortion. Doctors who refuse, Goodrich said, could risk charges of discrimination and face massive fines.

Religious exemption is effectively at the discretion of the Biden administration, Goodrich warned, emphasizing that the revised rule does not provide a blanket exemption.

Such a mandate has already been blocked multiple times before, the expert noted. Goodrich argued that the administration is still going forward with the revised rule, even if the court again rejects it, so “that others might just be cowed into submission [out of] fear of massive penalties.”

“It seems like HHS is willing to treat these court losses in the injunctions as the price to pay for trying to change the norms in the medical profession,” the expert said, adding, “What they’re really trying to do is change the norms in the medical profession to include gender transition and abortion.”

Thursday, the Biden White House announced that it was canceling a long-scheduled test-firing of a Minuteman ICBM from Vandenburg AFB, CA. This test has been disclosed years in advance. According to the Wall Street Journal, the reason given was to prevent inflaming the hemorrhoids of Chinese President Xi.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin ordered the extended naval presence, John Kirby, a White House spokesman, said at a news briefing. Mr. Austin also ordered the missile-test delay to avoid further inflaming relations with China, Mr. Kirby said. He didn’t respond to a reporter’s question on whether President Biden ordered the delay.
“As China engages in destabilizing military exercises around Taiwan, the United States is demonstrating instead the behavior of a responsible nuclear power by reducing the risks of miscalculation,” Mr. Kirby said.

Because the world always interprets inaction as being responsible and not scared sh**less.

This is the second time this year that Secretary of Defense Austin has ordered a scheduled and announced Minuteman test scrubbed so as not to offend someone. The last time was in early March, and we didn’t want to upset Vladimir Putin as his race to Kiev melted down; see Joe Biden’s Defense Department Cancels a Long-Scheduled Missile Test Because of Offending the Russians They Need for an Iran Nuclear Deal.

Joe Biden Keeps Testing Positive for COVID, Thinks He's the 'Vice President'


As Tucker Carlson noted, so much for that “pandemic of the unvaccinated” line, right?



Biden is quadruple-vaxxed and double-masked. He also took a round of Pfizer’s proclaimed “wonder drug,” Paxlovid, after becoming infected. Yet, he’s still COVID-19 positive after initially testing positive over two weeks ago. If that’s not a rebuke of the White House’s messaging on the coronavirus, nothing is. All of the lies about how the vaccinated don’t get COVID have been completely exposed, something Carlson roasts in his monologue.

It was never a “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” something I pointed out in December of 2021. Yet, Biden continued to dangerously assert that the unvaccinated were somehow responsible for all the nation’s woes. It was one of the most disturbing, divisive attacks I’ve ever seen from a president, and it’s beyond ironic that Biden himself has now apparently turned into one big ball of COVID.

Then there was the president’s remote appearance on Thursday, where he got confused while speaking to a group of business leaders.

Biden Obsesses About 'White Supremacist' Terrorism but the FBI's Top 10 Terrorist List Begs to Differ


Yet the Biden administration, in 2021, unveiled a new national strategy for countering domestic terrorism, as reported by Yahoo News, warning that white supremacy and “militia violent extremists” currently present the “most persistent and lethal threats” to the United States homeland.

In a speech following the announcement, woefully inept Attorney General Merrick Garland blathered on about a “whole of society approach,” again keying white supremacists as the top domestic violence threat.

In the FBI’s view, the top domestic violence extremist threat comes from racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists, specifically those who advocated for the superiority of the White race.

There’s just one problem with the Democrats’ “white supremacy” narrative: The facts beg to differ.

So does the FBI, if even reluctantly so. As reported by The Daily Wire, leftists dominate the FBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted Domestic Terrorism list. While several are associated with a leftist group that bombed the U.S. Capitol in 1983, the list also includes at least two communists, three black nationalists, one anti-war activist, and a vegan eco-terrorist.

The democrats can't believe that people need to work 2 jobs to keep up with inflation. All they want to do is count the jobs.


IIRC Obama bragged about a similar circumstance ... look at all these JOBS that have been filled

as a result from Obamacare and the 29 hr rule .... if you worked under 29 hrs a business was not required to provide Health care

Watched the late tv news and there was a story of Biden & Jill planning on going to Kentucky to visit with the flood damaged people. How he will do it while still testing positive is pretty dumb. Or do we expect a miraculous recovery by today or tomorrow . :sshrug:

Biden Administration Takes a Step Back on Railroad Safety


As if we didn’t have enough factors putting upward pressure on prices, the Biden administration this week proposed a rule that over time would add to the cost of everything that comes to us via rail.


A rule proposed by the Federal Railroad Administration would require two crew members on all trains in almost all situations for the foreseeable future. This comes on the heels of a report that railroads – like a lot of American industries – are having problems finding dependable employees and at a time when contract negotiations between railroads and various unions are at critical stages.

On top of that, this is the third time the proposal has been considered – a similar rule was proposed in 2016 under President Obama then abandoned in 2016 under President Trump because the government could not produce any evidence the rule would enhance the safety of the railroads.

What’s painful about this is the government knows it will increase costs. It knows railroads will struggle to find more people and to pay them more in the future, and it knows the second crew member is not necessary to improve safety.




Seems like a ' give me ' to UNIONS to pad the employee roles

There's a lot of railroad corporate propaganda in that piece. Never forget with the railroards, especially the Class 1's, it's ALL about the shareholders. The railroads did this to themselves chasing ever higher profits. They've cut operations, mechanical, and maintenance staffs practically to the bone. Customers are pissed off at them because they can never deliveries and pickups when they are needed. (Thank you PSR.) Even the Surface Transportation Board agrees.

AG Slams Biden for Threatening to Take Away School Lunch Money by Pushing 'Far-Left Ideology'


In other words, Biden will strip schools lunch funding if they don’t adhere to their woke gender agenda they are so keen on pushing.

Miyares told Breitbart News that the Biden administration is using “nutrition assistance for needy kids to push a far left political ideology on local school districts.”

“To just make sure everybody knows exactly what’s happening: you have the Department of Agriculture — the USDA — which is saying for school districts that provide reduced lunches for needy children — nutrition assistance for needy children — ‘If you want this money, you have to allow biological males to play women’s sports, and you have to allow biological males to use women’s bathrooms,” Miyares said.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture even printed out new posters to further push their radical campaign. The new poster says that the “institution is prohibited from discrimination on “the basis of race, color, national origin, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), age, disability and reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity.”

The left claims the words on the poster means nothing but reminding people not to discriminate, while Republicans says it’s a sign of the federal government’s “radical gender ideology.”

The very title Democrats gave the bill — “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022” — is a boldfaced lie, and should be reason enough to view the bill as a scam. According to the Penn Wharton Budget Model, the bill would have no impact on inflation. In fact, it would “very slightly increase inflation until 2024” (emphasis added).

Given all this, what’s in it for the American people? The bill’s focus is largely on “Energy Security and Climate Change” programs. As Biden and Democrats now tout the “incredible transition” their anti-American energy policies have created, we already know what this will leave Americans with: higher prices and nothing but demands from Biden administration officials to buy expensive electric vehicles.

Industry experts already confirm this. The methane tax in the bill, for instance, would increase natural gas costs by 17% — or $100 a year for the average American family.

It’s clear that if Americans simply know the truth behind the bill, and what it will do to their pocketbooks, this latest ploy by Biden and the left to remake America leaves congressional Democrats even more vulnerable in November. Already, 82% of Americans say the economy is “poor.” This bill would only worsen every problem plaguing our economy.

Democrats who vote for this bill will be accountable to American voters in less than four months. In the meantime, let’s be honest: this is the newest Bidenflation Scam.




Is it usually a good idea to push something when half the country doesn't want it .?
