“It’s not that I don’t trust Women to control their own bodies… I trust Women to control when they allow men to ejaculate inside of them – to control intake of semen” – Rep. Karianne Lisonbee
The trigger laws after the overturning is already in affect in 13 states in the United States of America, these are being set into action in Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming. While the Vatican and the Holy See did celebrate the verdict. It just shows how discouraging and the demeaning this overturning of Roe Versus Wade is. This referral law is now done with and ended. Giving plenty of the states the options to make it illegal and criminalize the ones who helps with the practice. Therefore, the U.S. is becoming one place for freedoms and other with hefty restrictions.
We know that more states will trigger laws and changes, which will severely restrict, ban and up-right make it illegal to advocate, help or abide in the process of abortion. The states that has already triggered the laws are enacting laws, which give jail-time and possibly make it a criminal offence. Which can strike at a woman, if she crosses state borders and have a miscarriage when returning. Meaning, things that a women already don’t control can become threatening and invoke a criminal investigation. That just show how “big” the government is… the same government that cannot ban or invoke any sort of regulation of firearms, in a sort of reasonable fashion. Because, you cannot take away the constitutional rights to arms, but you can take away the freedom and liberty of a female adult to carry a child or not.
To limit reproductive health care is only tarnishing the rights of women. In a nation of no universal health care. In a nation of no paid maternity leave, decent child tax-credits or social security that could matter. Therefore, the expenses of paying for child-birth, doctors appointments and whatnot can bankrupt a family and especially an unwanted or an unplanned one. That’s why the impoverished will be hit even harder and they will have nowhere to go.
While that is happening people should expect a domino effect out of this. The other rights, which has been legal in recent time could easily be eradicated too. This being contraception, same-sex marriage, same-sex relationships, LGBT rights and so fourth. Heck, people should think that these people of the Supreme Court could find ways to end the legality of interracial marriage, which isn’t that old of judgement either. Therefore, there is plenty of referral laws, which can be swiftly overturned like Roe Versus Wade. This can easily just be the beginning and the these Supreme Court Justices, as we know one of them Clarence Thomas has commented about the possibilities to do so.
In the midst of that and the turmoil that is created. The inflicted harm and insecurity put on the women now. They should start to apply pressure and use this cause to have a say. Since the Congress never used the 5 decades to make it a federal law or codifying it. That’s why the Supreme Court could just take it away over night and letting the states themselves decide how to deem things properly.
It is just striking that the same Justices didn’t believe the States had the rights to limit the gun-control according to the Constitution, but the same Constitution can take away the reproductive of women. So, in practice the women can shoot a baby, but not take an abortion. That’s ironic and the renegade youths like Kyle Rittenhouse can kill protesters, but women cannot decide over their own bodies. However, it is easy to get guns and create a mass-murder, which we have seen often with “thoughts and prayers” from the representatives afterwards.
This is America in 2022… and it’s tragic. This is taking a big step back. USA should be better than this, but apparently it’s not. Peace.
The United States of America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. Certainly isn’t becoming a more friendly place, but a more hostile one. It isn’t enough with the uncontrolled gun-violence, mass-shootings and gang-violence. The epic proportions of police brutality and corporate run-prison system. The United States of America isn’t the land of total freedom or liberty. No, it is so sanctioned and regulated that you should be cautious. Especially, if you blink twice or happens to be born with the wrong skin-colour.
Alas, birth, the womb and the women’s rights have now become the main subject. The reproductive rights and the prevention options of women in the USA will now be limited. It will possibly matter of which state you reside or the possible costs to do the needed treatment elsewhere. Certainly, plenty of Southern or Mid-Western states, which has a majority of Republican representatives are preparing legislations or state laws that abolish or limits the possibilities to near-none. Therefore, one part of society will be blocked out of life-saving treatment.
The same party and government, the same sort of judges and likes who has called mask-mandates for “fascism” and been so outrageous about COVID-19 regulations. However, the same people are now screaming of joy for policing women’s bodies. They are doing it to save the “unborn” and the ones who haven’t gotten life. These people call themselves “pro-life” but are they really?
These people are the sort of freedom loving people who would block the needs of any regulations to guns, state run programs and social security. They so want the state to be limited and will not grant any sort of tax-credit, stimulus package or sort of child-care programs that would matter. Instead they would rather destroy all that in combination of making the health care less accessible to millions of citizens. That’s the same people, which calls themselves “pro-life”.
They are only pro-breathing but after giving birth. The women and the families are mostly left alone to themselves. The ones who cannot afford or have access to treatment in other states. When the states takes away these freedoms. There will be pushback, but certainly create movements, which the same sort of ideals will be fought over again.
Now is the need for movements that acts and represents women like the Temperance Movement and the Anti-Salon League. The end of Roe Versus Wade will usher in a new era now. The Planned Parenthood, which we know and grown up with will be obsolete. If you though the Tea Party of the Trump’s MAGA was anything. Well, if history tells us anything. These sorts of things will spiral out in a manner, which the White House, Supreme Court or the Congress cannot handle. They just have to listen and obey. Because, this will backfire.
This will be brutal and the consequences will be enormous. Yes, the Republican’s seems like victors today, because SCOTUS validated their claim and overturned a former ruling. The Democrats never made it code or into law. Therefore, the rights of productive rights and women’s right is by default gutted by a conservative bench in the Supreme Court.
First and foremost, the ones who cannot or doesn’t have resources will be put into a quagmire. They either got to do it illegally in “speakeasies” or “underground clinics” to help them out or have organizations out of state to give them guidance and support to make it happen. That’s how despicable it is. Secondly, this is a bunch of men policing women’s bodies and months ago they where crying out loud over wearing masks in public. That’s how degenerate these people are. They should know better, but we cannot expect greatness out of corrupt and greedy men. These just want power and it shows. They want their mistresses to bare their children and they want baby-mamas across the board While calling themselves good family and Christian men. Alas, they couldn’t be further from the case. Most likely the same of sort of gentlemen wouldn’t accept or feel human, if a woman made a law policing their bodies. However, that is another case and it should be spelled out.
We are now seeing not only a divide, but a piece of history, which will ensure a political shift and a turn. That is most likely happening. The SCOTUS, White House and Congress will not understand that today. The people, the ones hurt and the ones banned from acting on their own judgement will turn against this. Some might be silent first, but after a while they will organize. There will be initiatives, groups and new sort of operations, which is out of bound of legislators. New sort of political will and rise to counter this. Because, so many people lost a constitutional right and an option, which has been there for 50 years.
This will not end here. Mark my words. This is a new chapter and a new beginning. The ones thinking publicity stunts and small pushover town-hall questionaries will be it. I hate to break it to you, but you have now unleashed a new sort of movement. Which the political elite or the ones representing the citizens haven’t seen in a life-time. That’s what the SCOTUS has done and this could have been avoided. However, now defiance and resistance is the only way out. That’s all because the Supreme Court judges overturned a ruling. Peace.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also” – Matthew 5: 38-39, New International Version (NIV).
It is tragic to know that the first Congolese Prime Minister of the Independent Democratic Republic of Congo – Patrice Lumumba was not only assassinated, but deposed of in a brutal way. Which is why the only remain part of his body is a tooth. The body was deposed with acid and totally destroyed. That was a deliberate act to mask and stop any sort of trace of the evil deeds committed to him.
While we know the Belgian authorities and the United States of America – Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was involved in the matter. They where both participating and ensuring a transition to Mobutu Sese Seko and his tyranny, which took over for the revolutionary and the popular prospect of a Lumumba government. Therefore, the West did this and has never answered for their crimes in the DRC. Belgium is “regretting” and saying “sorry” but they have never paid or had any direct consequences for the years of colonialism or overlordship of the Central African Nation.
That’s why I cannot celebrate the return the of the tooth. No, it is not enough. Just like the Belgians never has paid any price or had to take any sort of real accountability for the years of colonial rule. They have not paid for their brutality and generations of suffering. A nation which paid the costs of their mass-murder and looting. Therefore, the tooth of the former Prime Minister isn’t a token or a relic of hope. But a proof of the deviousness, which has roamed large in Brussels and beyond.
Just read this here snippet about the return of it:
“A newly-built mausoleum in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s capital, Kinshasa is getting ready to welcome the gold-crowned tooth of the country’s independence hero Patrice Lumumba. The mausoleum was however designed by a Chinese architect and is about to take in the only known remains of Mr Lumumba. In September 2020, the family of Lumumba received news of taking in the tooth taken from his corpse. A court in Belgium had ruled that the tooth should be returned to Lumumba’s family. Lumumba’s tooth was believed to have been taken by a Belgian policeman who was helping to dispose of the body” (Africa Feeds, 23.06.2022).
What is even more striking is that a Belgian Police Officer has been able to keep it for all of these years. That a man of the law and of the law enforcement kept it as a token and a valuable artefact says a lot. Because, he and others in his company has to know how it got there. You just don’t take a tooth and other items from another country like that.
The police officer and fellow peers must have known and be aware of the “secrecy” of the assassination of Lumumba. That his life was taken prematurely and left to a grim fate. Which was acid and total destruction of his remains. That’s why the DRC is only left with a tooth.
The Belgian authorities only gives back a golden tooth. That is very symbolic of how they ruled the DRC. They called maybe the tribes of the DRC savages, but they were the definition of it. The way they looted, massacred and created horrors under rule of King Leopold. The Belgians should be aware of the bloodshed and murders that was committed in their names. That is something that should be told until eternity. Especially, when it has no consequence. The murder capital of DRC is somewhere in Belgium. Since, they ordered and ensured the demise of millions of Congolese people over the years.
Some might say it is reparation or a gesture between the nations. This was a theft. Not only the thieving of the remains of a body of a head of state. No, it was also a theft and stolen future. The Belgians together with allies hijacked the future of the DRC. They installed Mobutu and the ramifications we see to this day.
The tooth will not turn back time. It is a small item, but not insignificant. Yes, this has taken way to long. However, the ones behind the assassination is roaming loose and has no punitive actions done against them. They did a calculated murder with following destruction of all evidence. That’s how sinister the plot was and we may never know who actually did it.
The only thing we know… is that the DRC never got justice served. They only got an tooth. Which isn’t enough. Belgians should be aware and so should anyone else who has looted a nation under the banner of colonialism. They should answer for the pains and suffering they committed. It wasn’t just an one off and Lumumba’s demise is a testament of that. Peace.
The United States of America has a massive gun problem. The amounts of school-shootings and mass-shootings are staggering. The “lone-wolf” attacks with heavy weaponry and ability to shoot up schools are at imaginable levels.
ZeroEyes reports that 223,000 students have experienced gun-violence at schools between 1999 to 2018. The same NGO reports 229 schools have experienced school-shootings in the same time period. 143 people lives lost in these school-shootings 290 injured and the media age of the school-shooter was sixteen. That’s in the timespan of 1999-2018.
We can just think about the numbers between 2019-2022. As it has continued to spiral out and the numbers aren’t getting better. Everytown statistics from these years aren’t any good either. In 2019 130 incidents of gunfire on school grounds, 33 deaths and 78 injuries. In 2020 there was 96 incidents of gunfire on school grounds, 24 deaths and 43 injuries. In 2021there was 202 incidents of gunfire on school grounds, 49 deaths and 126 injuries.
These numbers are shocking and high. As the numbers of the last two gunfire incidents only in May month of this year will make it higher. It just barely weeks between them. They are happening at a rampant phase and never ceasing to end. This is an issue that cannot just be left alone. Children and innocent civilians are dying as a cause of all of this. It is a government who isn’t reacting or restricting the usage of firearms, which could stop this from happening. Instead, the representatives and the leaders of the nation is shielding the weapons and arms manufactures. If not they are dependent of the gun-lobby who is giving huge donations to their campaigns. Since, the deadly is persisting and nothing is stopping it from happening.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) and other organizations must have Congress by the balls. They must also have all the gun-friendly representatives in all important chambers or august houses of the 50 states. Since, there seems to be no end. The ones remembering Virginia Tech and Columbine High School ages ago. Would think these sorts of mass-shootings would be the stop of it. However, in the U.S. this has been continuing since then and is a never ending stories.
The only other thing that is constant is arming teachers, security guards and giving more guns in close proximity of the schools. The second constant is that the representatives are sending their thoughts and prayers, because their hands are tied or they are held at gun-point themselves. Since it seems impossible for them to either make legislation or even try to regulate the ability to purchase guns at any given moment. Instead it’s a free for all and everyone who with a pulse can get one.
That’s why the U.S. have a gun-governance problem and the price of that is the kids who dies on a semi-regular basis. When we know the U.S. isn’t able to fix the problem or the issues on the matter. They seems to need United Nations Experts to make a Report on the matter and handle that to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). Since they could make a case and find a solution on it. If not someone should petition the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) to discuss a possible peacekeeping force to stop this insecurity, which it really is…
United States is falling from grace. Their greatness is falling apart. Especially, when the Congress is so corrupt and hesitant to defend it’s own citizens. Because, that is the matter here. The U.S. comes to save people far away, but cannot manage to find measures to save kids in their own schools. That’s what’s tragic here… Peace.
The American Dream is dying, one step at the time. Senator Ethan Roark Jr. of Sin City is becoming the norm of society. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas did deliberately violating campaign finance laws just so he could petition the courts and get the laws changed. He has achieved his mission and by doing so. The donors, the corporations and the Public Action Committee’s (PACs) can circumvent certain stipulations and indirectly pay a candidate. Therefore, the candidate or politician will be beholden to their interests and in the end… not work for the citizens, but for the companies, lobbyists and other interests groups who is paying for their campaign.
The United States of America isn’t getting any better, but only turning worse. The Supreme Court is using benign reasoning. Calling it a political speech to loan money to fund their own campaigns. While we know the loans will be paid by the donors and beneficiaries of the candidates in question. This is ensuring the corporate candidates and the ones who serve certain industries to get massive funding, which will be pocketed by the candidate itself.
A candidate can take out a loan to his/hers own campaign of a ONE MILLION US Dollars and after the campaigns the His/Hers for House/Senate can cover these debts with interests, which goes straight into the account of the politician. That is self-serving and free money, a bribe that ensures the interests of the companies or industries are taken care off. So, it is so weird that this getting allowed, but shows what the Supreme Court really believes in.
Here’s the vital information:
“The U.S. Supreme Court’s conservative majority on Monday continued a decades long dismantling of federal campaign finance limits in a divided decision in favor of Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. The 6-3 ruling, written by Chief Justice John Roberts Jr., struck down Section 304 of the 2002 federal Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act that limited post-election contributions to repay a candidate’s personal campaign loans” (Zack Needles – ‘Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz Wins Federal Campaign Finance Limits Case Before U.S. Supreme Court’ 16.05.2022, Texas Lawyer, Law.com).
“For the reasons set forth, we conclude that Cruz and the Committee have standing to challenge the threatened enforcement of Section 304 of BCRA. We also conclude that this provision burdens core political speech without proper justification. The judgment of the District Court is affirmed” (Federal Election Committee Versus Ted Cruz for Senate, May 16, 2022).
The next U.S. elections the campaigns can get vast loans from the candidates themselves. While later cash-that-in, as they are fundraising and getting donor funds from various of sources. All of these sources and lobbyists are doing so for their interests and policy needs. Therefore, we all know the gist of this.
The U.S. elections and campaign funding is already a corporate white-wash of funding. This is just tripling down and ensuring a “sign-on-fee” for politicians, which is only have been known for athletes. If not it is securing a means for an advance by “loaning” to your own campaign and getting a donor to cover the “debt”. So, in return the candidate will cash-in and get refunded this as personal revenue.
Ted Cruz and the current Supreme Court has made it possible for the rich candidates to enrich themselves on their own campaigns. In some regards, the way and manner of which they are elected has now also become a cash-grab for the wealthy representatives of Washington D.C. The Republican’s are clearing the swamp, but creating a bigger one. Where they are destroying the rules and opening up all avenues for creating personal wealth. While they are hoping the public doesn’t see or doesn’t care. Because, this is just a way of gaining more money on the job. Since the campaigns are part of the lifestyle and needs to get elected into office. Now the way of getting the job is also a possible way of getting vast profits. This is defended by need of political speech.
So, in the minds of the Supreme Court moving money from one account to another is a sign of political speech. Clearly, the banks of JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, CitiGroup and such will be really happy about this. They don’t even need to get this politicians to hold speeches and get paid. No, they can just donate funds, which will cover the “debts” of the candidates and that will go right into the pocket of whoever they deem fit for their cause. Peace.
“Third, if the Court does overturn Roe, it will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose. And it will fall on voters to elect pro-choice officials this November. At the federal level, we will need more pro-choice Senators and a pro-choice majority in the House to adopt legislation that codifies Roe, which I will work to pass and sign into law” (Biden – ‘Statement by President Joe Biden, 03.05.2022).
The term of Joseph Biden as President has been a faulty one. It has been a corporate stooge and furthering the interests of the K Street Lobbyists. This period of time after President Donald J. Trump haven’ been about changes or making significant progress. Instead, the ones running the House of Representatives, the Senate and the Presidency is taking it easy on the job.
The Democratic Party is following party-lines and procedural lines, without any sort of results worth mentioning. Even under the despicable Trump term they got things done for their voters and they did what they could with 51 votes with a tie with VP Mike Pence. The Democrats won’t even do that or push that, as they have the option of doing so. The Republican’s did it. So why can’t Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi pull it off? Is that rule on for the GOP and the Republican’s when they have a gig to fulfil?
Just listen to his interview:
““We will be ready when any ruling is issued,” Biden said. If the Supreme Court overturns Roe ”it will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose,” he said. “And it will fall on voters to elect pro-choice officials this November,” the president said” (CNBC – ‘Biden defends abortion rights after leak of Supreme Court draft striking down Roe v. Wade’ 03.05.2022).
He sounds like his not in office and needs more people in Congress. That is partly true, especially in the Senate, as long as the Filibuster rule is followed. Nevertheless, the President could use the VP tie like mentioned, if they played the political games like the Republicans. However, we know the Democrats will never do that.
We know that Biden doesn’t have a spine or the way to be brutal. Neither does Schumer or Pelosi. They wouldn’t dare to challenge the norm and do that for the safety of woman across the Republic. No, they rather politicking and use it as a means to an end. They rather use this for the mid-terms than securing the lives of woman more safe. That’s really insane and show how little they care.
I called Biden weak-tea ahead of the polls, but his cold-tea and a tasteless fellow too. Instead of using the power, the leadership of two houses and pull the strings within own party to get things done. His asking for the citizens to further their power and get more Democrats elected. Like the public doesn’t know the Democrats already have the House and the Senate. However, that is wasted until the mid-terms.
The Roe V. Wade possibly overturned should be the first memo to start the codification or ensure the motion to create a law out of the ruling. As the Democrats has the power to do so. Nevertheless, that’s too much to ask… Biden is lacking the character and political ambition to even establish abortion rights in the Republic.
This just shows how disingenuous Biden and the Democrats are. They could fix it and make it happen. That is if they actually cared or was concerned. Instead, they are using this as a means to campaign. Because, it is not like the Biden administration can campaign on its achievements or policies it has ushered it. It is an empty shell of government and they are just busy cashing-in-the-checks. Peace.
