Biden Fascists Working Overtime Along the Rio Grande To Win Crooked Presidency Again in 2024!

AUGUST 19, 2022 BY SCOTT JOHNSON at PowerLine:


Has anyone other than FOX News covered the “new video showing federal agents calmly unlocking gates at the border to let illegal immigrants stream into the US amid an alarming, record-breaking surge”? Well, yes, the New York Post covered it in this story.

The video is shocking (not shocking) in its own way. I draw attention to it only as a milestone in the covert war on the facts and on the country that the Biden administration is waging with such zeal.

Bill Melugin and the FOX News team that has covered the opening of our border deserve professional recognition in the awards the industry loves to lavish on itself. To say the least, the distributors of such awards prefer to overlook reporting that doesn’t further the narrative. That is what we have here.

The Predatory Male Behavior Of So-Called Transgender Women

By Eleanor Dashwood at American Thinker:

How do you know so-called transgender women aren’t real women? Because they act just like predatory men who, rather than having sympathy for women concerned when physically intact men invade their territory, revel in the ability to impose their will on these women.

I once had a conversation with a strapping, athletic, and tall young man I was dating about how I, and women in general, feel vulnerable walking or traveling alone in many situations he took for granted. He had never thought about that wary anxiety women feel walking through a dimly lit parking lot at night, or turning around at footsteps, assessing the environment, noticing men eying them and, in response, feeling vulnerable and unprepared and instantly calculating how to respond if things go south.

The man wasn’t naïve or insensitive, but the emotions I described were unfamiliar to him. He had never pondered how different women’s day-to-day experiences were from his own. He enjoyed unthinking confidence due to his strength, size, and sex.

Of course, men can be vulnerable, but it should go without saying that their reality is different than women’s. Women are generally smaller and physically weaker than most men, so savvy women learn to be careful.

Women also rely on the traditional social contract ensuring single-sex privacy in places in which they may be naked or exposed, such as dressing rooms, bathrooms, or locker rooms. She expects that, in these spaces, she’ll be in the company of women and free from voyeurs or exhibitionists.

Sadly, this social contract has been broken because mixed-up or opportunistic men claiming to be women are allowed to invade these private spaces. These men’s insensitivity to women’s fear and discomfort is additional proof that they are not women.

They don’t understand women’s fear, vulnerability, and discomfort because they come from the same perspective as my male friend. It has never been a part of their experience because their point of view is male.

Ironically, my male friend would never have tried to invade a female space and would have respected women’s feelings, unlike many trans activists. Rather than respecting women’s feelings of vulnerability, many of these men in dresses enjoy the power of being in those settings, where they can view exposed women and show their male genitalia with impunity (something other cannot do legally), all because they claim to be women. They behave exactly like predatory men, overtly pressuring women with their power and dominance, and leaving the women unable to fight back. Examples abound.

Julie Jaman, an 80-year-old liberal feminist in Port Townsend, Washington, became uncomfortable while naked in a locker room at her local YMCA when she heard a male voice. She observed a man in a woman’s swimsuit assisting little girls who were changing into their bathing suits. When she complained that this was inappropriate, she was punished.

Instead of the Y addressing and respecting her reasonable feelings, Jaman was labeled a “transphobe,” booted from the pool, and permanently barred from the Y where she had swum without incident for 30 years. When she protested publicly, trans activists stormed the stage, physically intimidating her to disrupt her speech.

The mayor and city council rewarded the activists and announced the city’s “allyship” with the trans community. The message to Jaman and other women was that trans rights supersede women’s rights and that women must take it and shut up about their discomfort.

A guy who has been wearing a dress for about a year has more rights in a women’s locker room than an 80-year-old lifelong female. The alliance between the government and a trans guy with no compassion for women, despite claiming to be one, will create a chilling denial of privacy for women.

Riley Gaines a swimmer from the University of Kentucky, described the shock and discomfort she and other women swimmers felt when having to change clothes in a locker room in front of a male swimmer, Will Thomas, who claims to be female. Women coming in from a pool have no choice but to become naked as they change clothes. The only privacy they can seek is toilet stalls.

Will Thomas, who identifies as “Lia Thomas,” has male genitalia, is tall and broad-shouldered, and is built like a male swimmer. Oh, and he’s sexually attracted to women. By calling himself female, he was empowered to stroll around a female locker room despite the women made uncomfortable as he looked at them and strolled about naked, his “female” penis in full view.

When women complained, they were told to accept the situation or not swim at all—and they were offered counseling. As with Port Townsend, Thomas behaved like a classic predatory male, insensitive to women’s feelings and discomfort, while the universities helped enforce their humiliation and abuse.

At Wi Spa in Los Angeles, a man claiming to be a woman entered the female-only areas where women are completely nude. A mother with her young daughter was horrified to see a man sitting with his legs spread in front of all the women. He seemed to be enjoying their discomfort. (Turns out he’s a serial sexual offender.) The helpless spa had to comply with California law requiring facilities to accommodate people’s “gender identity.  Antifa responded to women’s complaints with rioting.

In New Jersey, a so-called transwoman in prison for manslaughter was sent to a women’s prison and, despite being “female,” magically impregnated two other inmates with his external vagina, which looked and functioned just like a penis. In prison, predatory men who claim to be female are allowed unfettered access to completely helpless women.

There are many travesties in the trans movement, from the deranged parents eager to be the parent of a trans child to the corrupt doctors and mental health professionals now claiming that children can know they are trans in utero (even though, simultaneously, they’re just a clump of cells), to the teachers lying to parents and manipulating confused children, to Big Pharma creating a lifetime of misery for huge profits. This is a hideous war on reality, but it is also a hideous attack on the safety and sanctity of women’s spaces, and politicians, universities, and activists, spurred by ideology and profit, are telling women to shut up and take it.

When my daughter was in high school, she participated in a wonderful program that took teenage girls on a wilderness backpacking trip. It was a life-changing experience for her. It gave her personal confidence and was the first step in many more possibilities for her.

Recently, I thought about this same program for a lovely young woman I know who could benefit from an empowering experience. Sadly, when I went online to find the link for her, I discovered (unsurprisingly) that this all-girls program now emphasizes nonbinary and trans girls.

Gone is the safe space my daughter enjoyed. It has been highjacked by boys who call themselves girls and girls who have no idea what they are. It is no longer a female-only space. I couldn’t recommend it to this young woman as I felt it would harm her. One by one, women are being bullied out of their own spaces by dudes in dresses and their misguided enablers. We must fight back.

Judge to Biden: Drill, baby, drill — and obey the law

ED MORRISSEY Aug 19, 2022 at HotAir:

That didn’t take long. Less than 24 hours after Joe Biden and his team celebrated a win at the Fifth Circuit, Judge Terry Doughty popped all the balloons. Will Biden take this chance for a new approach on energy? Naah, but that’s what makes this worth noting:

In the Thursday ruling, Judge Terry Doughty of the Western District of Louisiana, a Trump appointee, permanently blocked the January 2021 order in 13 states that sued over the order last March. The states in question are Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia. It does not apply to any states uninvolved in the lawsuit.

In his ruling, Doughty ruled the order in violation of the Mineral Leasing Act (MLA) and Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA), saying it took steps reserved for Congress.

“Both statutes require Government Defendants’ agencies to sell oil and gas leases. The OCSLA has a Five-Year Plan in effect that requires eligible leases to be sold. Government Defendants’ agencies have no authority to make significant revisions in the OCSLA Five-Year Plan without going through the procedure mandated by Congress,” Doughty wrote.

“The MLA requires the [Interior Department] to hold lease sales, where eligible lands are available at lease quarterly. By stopping the process, the agencies are in effect amending two Congressional statutes. Neither the OCSLA nor the MLA gives the Government Defendants’ agencies the authority to implement a Stop of lease sales,” he added.

The day before, the White House thought it had won a round at the appellate circuit, which vacated Doughty’s earlier injunction. That didn’t last long:

A judge’s order that forced the Biden administration to resume sales of oil and gas leases on federal land and waters was rejected Wednesday by a federal appeals court in New Orleans.

It was at least a temporary victory for President Joe Biden but the immediate effect was unclear.

It was at most a temporary victory. Doughty apparently just fleshed out the injunction far enough to satisfy the appellate court’s concerns over his ruling.

Of course, the White House can appeal this injunction as well. Will they? Almost certainly, as Biden simply can’t take a hint or quit while he’s only reasonably behind. One does have to wonder why he’d bother, however, as Biden was forced to agree to much of the same kind of permitting and extraction in the compromise Chuck Schumer made with Joe Manchin. The Courier explains how the concessions to Manchin largely overlap the same kind of activities that Biden attempted to block with his executive orders:

The practical impacts of the ruling could be minor because of the fossil fuel leasing mandates in the climate law, said Erik Milito, president of the National Ocean Industries Association, which represents oil and gas service companies.

The law requires the government to reinstate $192 million in leases in the Gulf of Mexico that were blocked by another court ruling last year. And it requires two more sales in the Gulf and one in Alaska before October 2023. Those sales had been canceled under Biden. The provision reviving them was inserted into the law at the insistence of West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, an advocate for fossil fuels.

Going forward the law says Interior will hold periodic oil and gas lease sales and offer at least 60 million acres of offshore parcels and 2 million acres onshore during the prior year before it can approve any renewable energy leases.

Biden got pushed into the correct policy by Manchin. In a sane world, Biden might similarly welcome this ruling as a way to fully reset his energy prices. Gas prices jumped 108% in sixteen months thanks to his EO 13990-driven energy policies before gliding back to a 65% increase two months later, all still within the first two years of his presidency. That became the largest driver of rapid-escalation inflation, an economic morass that threatens to bury Biden’s party under a red wave in November.

What Biden needs is a handy excuse to start unwinding his Green New Deal agenda. A court ruling such as the one delivered by Judge Terry Doughty — himself under a direct order from the appellate court to apply the law as written — would provide the opening for Biden to recalculate his policies based on economic and scientific reality, not to mention the law.

One woman’s essay about rejecting sexual excess strikes a chord

By Andrea Widburg at American Thinker:

You know a writer has hit a chord when several women across the political spectrum send you the same essay, all of them commenting that it is a great essay and that young women in America should read it. The writer is Bridget Phetasy, a writer and stand-up comedian, and the essay is Phetasy’s rejection of the hook-up culture that leftists foist on young American women.

Phetasy puts the core issue right there in her essay’s title: “I Regret Being A Slut.” What triggered her writing the essay was a new book by Louise Perry entitled The Case Against The Sexual Revolution: A new guide to sex in the 21st century. According to the description on Amazon, Perry

argues that the amoral libertinism and callous disenchantment of liberal feminism and our contemporary hypersexualised culture represent more loss than gain. The main winners from a world of rough sex, hook-up culture and ubiquitous porn – where anything goes and only consent matters – are a tiny minority of high-status men, not the women forced to accommodate the excesses of male lust.

For Phetasy, born in 1978, making her a member of Gen X, the book struck a deep chord. For the past four years, Phetasy, who is now happily married and has a child, has been having a reckoning with her own sexual past. Despite writing a sex-positive column for Playboy, her big regret isn’t simply sleeping with so many men without loving any of them. Instead, it’s the lies she told herself to support that sexual lifestyle: “The lie I told myself for decades was: I’m not in pain—I’m empowered.”

Some of Phetasy’s lies were from her own life. She grew up in a Catholic home and associated sex with guilt and sin. She was also the victim of a roofie rape, which makes for traumatic reading, so it’s hard to imagine how it could have affected an 18-year-old. But in significant part, Phetasy was a victim of the lies the left tells young women:

My mantras were rigid.

  • You can either have a career or a relationship—but you can’t have both.
  • Intimacy is creepy.
  • Motherhood and children are a trap.
  • Sex is only about power.

These are the lies so many young women hear. It doesn’t help that, because so many women meet their partners through their careers, their relationships are damaged by career competition. It’s hard to maintain intimacy with someone when you’re also trying to prove that, at least professionally, you’re superior to that person. Sex becomes part of the power play in such a relationship or in the series of sexual hook-ups so many young women today have within their professional lives.

What young women need to hear is that they are precious individuals. Young men want sex—it’s a biological imperative—but that doesn’t mean young women must give it to them. After all, we can’t always get what we want. It’s important to know that, for women, intimacy isn’t creepy, but it does make you vulnerable. And if you’re going to be vulnerable, do that with someone who cherishes you and is committed to you for the long term. Don’t throw yourself away on someone who doesn’t care.

That was the message for the young women in the community in which I raised my children, and it seemed to succeed very well. The young women in the neighborhood, across the board, showed discretion and respect for themselves when it came to their relationships. None felt that they had to be just like the boys when it came to sex. They knew they were worthy, and they waited for the person who knew that too.

As I said, I heard from a lot of women, including fellow mothers, women who lived through the sexual revolution, women who bought into the “you can be just like a guy” mantra, and women who didn’t. For all of them, Phetasy’s essay was deeply moving, whether because it helped them understand their past or be grateful that they didn’t have one.

Dems Playing Their Fascism!

More Jan 6 people convicted of “parading”

JAZZ SHAW Aug 19, 2022 at HotAir: 

Mandel Ngan/Pool via AP

The government is continuing its highly “successful” campaign to identify and convict any person that can conceivably be tied in any way to the Capitol Hill riot on January 6th of last year. The latest two people to be dragged before a magistrate and plead guilty were a pair of sisters, Trudy Castle and Kimberly DiFrancesco. The two women freely admitted to having been at the riot and entering the Capitol Building after someone dropped a dime on them to the authorities, pointing to social media footage showing them inside the building. On Wednesday, they both entered their guilty pleas after the prosecution settled on a charge of “misdemeanor parading, demonstrating or picketing” in a restricted area. They face sentencing on November 22, when they could get up to six months behind bars. They will also each pay a $500 fine. (CBS News)

Two sisters from Illinois have pleaded guilty to joining the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Trudy Castle, of Chicago, and Kimberly DiFrancesco, of Elmhurst, both pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of misdemeanor parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building. They now face up to six months behind bars, although their sentence will be up to a judge. Both also agreed to pay $500 in restitution as part of their plea deals.

The sisters admitted to joining the crowd that broke into the Capitol, disrupting a joint session of Congress to confirm the Electoral College results of the 2020 presidential election.

As we’ve done here with previous January 6 convictions, let’s take a look at what is definitively known about the activities of Castle and DiFrancesco on that day. Both women showed up at the Capitol Building along with the rest of the crowd who walked over from the White House. They were not near the front of the crowd and they remained out on the plaza while the first wave of rioters broke through the windows and doors and began entering the building. The two women followed them inside later.

The CBS News coverage linked above spends more time describing the outfits that the women were wearing that day than anything else. That’s because the videos don’t show much of anything. The women are seen “walking around inside the Capitol.” It appears that at one point DiFrancesco was talking on either a hand-held radio or a cell phone. They entered the building at 2:20 p.m. and left around 3:00. They later considered going back in a second time, but at that point the lines of Capitol Hill Police were blocking the entrances, so they left and went home.

That’s it. That’s the entirety of their “crime wave.” These women are guilty of trespassing, plain and simple. Yes, trespassing in the Capitol Building is against the law, but trespassing, in general, is a crime that is rarely prosecuted without the trespassers engaging in other illegal or violent actions on top of it. When such charges are brought, the perpetrator typically is sentenced to a small fine or, rarely, some community service, particularly when the defendant has no prior police record, which seems to be the case here. But these women weren’t just trespassing in the eyes of the government. They were “parading.” And now they might do six months behind bars.

Granted, it’s a much sweeter deal than Guy Reffitt received for “parading” with a holstered weapon. And it would be far more lenient than the punishment Michael Eckerman will likely receive this year for “shoving and yelling.” But it’s still simply outrageous.

Another woman showed up in court to plead guilty this week. Her name is Katherine Schwab and she’s from Texas. She joined in with the rioters along with her two friends, Jenna Ryan and Jason Lee Hyland. Both of them had already pleaded guilty to “entering the Capitol” and were sentenced to sixty days and one week behind bars respectively.

Schwab was also only seen “walking around” inside the building. NBC News spends most of its coverage of her activities focusing on the fact that she traveled to Washington on a private jet. That’s apparently a “bad thing” if you’re doing it to trespass in the Capitol Building, but not if you’re a climate czar heading to a climate change conference.

Just as a periodic reminder, there has yet to be a single prosecution I could find of any of the people who were setting fire to federal court buildings and police cruisers during the BLM riots that unfolded during the summer of love. These sentences for the rioters would be shocking under any other circumstances. But the reality is that we now live in an era of selective enforcement of the law and unequal sentencing for similar or identical crimes. It’s the politicization of the justice system and it’s being done right before your eyes.


Democrats are woke, but parents are awake

by Ronna McDaniel at Washington Examiner:

August 17, 2022

Fun activities for 3 years old
Toddler and mother playing togetherWeekend Images Inc./Getty Images

As a mother of two, I’m well acquainted with the tradition of back-to-school shopping. But this time, preparations look different for many families. From invasive COVID-19 vaccine requirements and woke curricular materials to surging costs for school supplies, back-to-school season has parents peeved — and for good reason.

From the beginning, President Joe Biden and Democrats have put special interest groups over students. The Biden administration slow-walked school reopenings and prioritized teachers unions’ demands over parents’ needs, with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky meeting with families just once while granting “instant access” to union bosses. In fact, Walensky even admitted that she changed the CDC’s school reopening guidance to give teachers unions “what they need.” Emails show she went so far as to recommend that schools keep their doors shut — just because the unions said so.

Children paid the price. Studies show students who learned remotely for the majority of the 2020-2021 school year “on average … lost the equivalent of about 50% of a typical school year’s math learning during that time.” The fallout was especially dramatic for low-income, black, and Latino students, leading to “the largest increase in educational inequity in a generation.”

Now, Democrats in Washington, D.C., have handed families in public, charter, and private schools an ultimatum: Get the COVID-19 vaccine or be expelled. This mandate disproportionately affects minority families. Roughly 40% of black school-age children in Washington, D.C., are unvaccinated, which means they could be banned from returning to school in person. The learning losses they will suffer as a result will have long-term consequences.

Even when students are in the classroom, they’re being bombarded with woke propaganda and radical gender ideology. In California, the San Diego Unified School District is promoting K-12 lesson plans that encourage children to explore “gender identities,” such as “non-binary,” “pansexual,” and “two-spirit.” In Washington, D.C., schools, children as young as 4 years old are being taught to identify “racist” family members and check their own “white privilege.” And in more than 4,500 classrooms all over the country, instructors are teaching the New York Times’s “1619 Project,” a discredited left-wing alternate history that claims the United States is inherently and irredeemably racist, as fact.

Parents who speak out at school board meetings have little recourse; when they do, they risk becoming targets of an FBI investigation, thanks to Attorney General Merrick Garland. To make matters worse, the Biden administration is spending millions of dollars from the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion spending spree on “anti-racist” and “social activism” indoctrination of children.

While the White House splurges on the taxpayers’ dime, parents are struggling to provide their children with the school supplies they need. With inflation at a 40-year high , everything is more expensive — including basics such as school supplies and uniforms. Sixty percent of parents report spending more on school supplies this year thanks to surging costs, spending an average of $661 per student, up 8% from 2021 and 27% from 2019. Even school districts are seeing dramatically higher costs for food, transportation, and school goods.

On the other hand, Republicans are championing parental rights and educational opportunity for every student. Over the 2020-2021 school year, 19 of the top 20 states with the highest percentage of in-person student learning were led by Republican governors. It’s Republicans who have fought against critical race theory and leftist efforts to replace parents with the state.

In Oklahoma, Gov. Kevin Stitt disciplined two Democrat-dominated school districts for failing to remove CRT from their curricula. And in Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill protecting parental rights in education.

Republicans have also led the charge for school choice expansion. Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin increased funding for educational options, strengthened parents’ rights over their child’s learning, and banned CRT from being taught in his state. And in the Grand Canyon State, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed the most expansive school choice law in the nation.

As a mother, I understand how insulting it is to co-parent with the government. I’ve seen the strain that inflation is putting on family budgets. And I know I’m not alone. All over the country, parents are protesting at school board meetings, recalling rogue school board members, and running for office themselves. If Democrats think these parents aren’t going to show up at the polls on Election Day this November, they’re in for a surprise. Democrats are woke. Parents are awake.

Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel became the second woman ever elected as the leader of the Republican National Committee in 2017.


These Vulnerable Dems Won’t Say If They Support Unpopular Unfettered Abortion — But They’ve Backed It Before

BY: JORDAN BOYD at the Federalist:

AUGUST 18, 2022

Media say pro-lifers face a difficult battle when it comes to protecting unborn life, but it’s Democrats who peddle unpopular abortion policies.

Author Jordan Boyd profile


Polling shows that half of Democrats — and 71 percent of Americans — would limit abortion to the first trimester, if not sooner. But Democrats running for Senate seats this year support elective abortion for any reason until the moment of birth.

Corporate media claim that pro-lifers face an uphill political battle when it comes to protecting life in the womb, but what they’re not being honest about is the fact that Democrats are peddling radical and unpopular abortion measures far outside the mainstream.

Expanding permission for abortion well into the third trimester far exceeds what the majority of American voters support when it comes to ending unborn life, yet large swaths of Democrat politicians, including those in congressional leadership and those up for election this year, have embraced rhetoric and a legislative agenda that promote abortion during all nine months of pregnancy.

Sens. Mark Kelly of Arizona, Michael Bennet of Colorado, Raphael Warnock of Georgia, Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada, Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire, and Patty Murray of Washington are all at risk of losing their seats in just a few short months. Yet, they all seem willing to ignore polls recording Americans’ uneasiness with abortion for all without restrictions to stick with their party’s radical platform.

These six incumbent Democrat senators along with three Democrat Senate candidates John Fetterman of Pennsylvania, Val Demings of Florida, and current U.S. House Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio, all of whom are facing tough challengers in November, refused to answer questions from The Federalist about whether they specifically back any restrictions on abortions up until the moment of birth.

Cortez Masto’s office was the only one even to respond to an inquiry. In her reply, a spokeswoman claimed, “The AP, Politifact, and the Reno Gazette Journal have all reported on this misleading question, with Reno Gazette Journal recently noting: ‘Abortion up to the moment of live birth is not a thing, according to obstetricians.’”

Despite their best efforts to pretend they don’t support legislation that threatens the lives of babies developing as late as the third trimester, something acknowledged in even the fake fact checks Cortez Masto’s office referenced, it isn’t hard to decipher from Democrats’ recent statements and legislative track records that none of them have shied away from the radical abortion standards demanded by the left.

Kelly was one of the 46 Democrats who promoted and voted for the ill-named Women’s Health Protection Act, which, if passed, would have guaranteed unlimited, on-demand abortion in every state. Politifact tried to cover for Kelly with a sham fact-check rating rival candidate Blake Masters’ comments that the incumbent “voted to legalize abortion up until the moment of birth” “mostly false,” but not even their scamming can cover up Kelly’s nonchalance about abortions occurring well into the last stage of gestation.

Similarly, Bennet, who for years claimed Roe v. Wade was “settled law,” voted with his Democrat colleagues to attempt to codify unlimited abortion. He previously voted against limiting abortion to before 20 weeks gestation, even though constituents like his have shown widespread support for it.

Despite being repeatedly reprimanded by other black pastors for his views, Warnock has already become a top purveyor of the abortion-on-demand agenda.

Warnock may have tried to dodge answering whether he supports any limits on abortion by simply claiming, “I support a woman’s right to choose,” but it’s apparent the freshman legislator will do anything to expand that beyond the legal limits most Americans desire. That’s why he demanded the Biden administration “use the full force of the federal government to protect abortion access in the United States.” It’s also why he refuses to say whether he would support conscience protections for pro-life doctors with religious objections to abortion.


Cortez Masto claims to “fully support Nevada’s protections that allow women to access abortion care up until 24 weeks and in cases of life or health endangerment thereafter,” but her pro-abortion activism goes far beyond that. She is not only a strong proponent of abortion tourism, the practice of traveling outside of a state where abortion is banned to get one elsewhere, but she is also one of the many Democrats who voted to advance legislation to legalize taxpayer-funded late-term abortions.


Parroting abortion for all and lies about what the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson ruling actually does to abortion in Nevada has become such a key part of her platform that even the Associated Press noticed, writing, “Nevada senator focuses on abortion in critical November race.”

Cortez Masto is not alone. Her Senate colleague Hassan has pledged to “tirelessly defend a women’s right to access abortion.” That doesn’t sound like someone who thinks life should be protected beyond a certain point in pregnancy.

Murray also voted to advance a vote on a bill designed to codify abortion up until birth because, according to her Twitter, abortion “should be available no matter where you live.”


Democrat candidates such as Demings have also promised their commitment to the leftist agenda on abortion.

Fetterman, in his position as lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania, demanded that Senate Democrats “immediately scrap the filibuster and pass the Women’s Health Protection Act.” It wasn’t too long after that Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., publicly declared that Fetterman, if elected, could be one of the two votes Democrats need to codify unlimited abortion in the U.S.

Ryan is even more open about his position. In May, he told Fox News’s Bret Baier that he doesn’t believe in imposing any limits when it comes to abortion.


Democrats seem to believe that “any increase in turnout and enthusiasm in a midterm election” thanks to the overturning of Roe v. Wade will be vital to their political survival,” but their radical abortion agenda doesn’t sit well with voters. Many Americans support restrictions on abortion up to a certain point, but the Democrats most at risk of losing their elections are campaigning on getting rid of that very thing.

For years pro-life candidates were framed as desperately trying to overstep their voters’ desires on abortion legislation. But clearly, it’s Democrat lawmakers who are ignoring their constituencies and plowing ahead with an abortion agenda that is supported by hardly anyone but themselves.
