IT: ⚖️SCOTUS to hear challenge against Texas abortion law, and... What's the solution to the wave of border crossings?
Join us and tell your reps how you feel!
Welcome to Monday, October 25th, spuds and taters...
SCOTUS announced Friday that it will hear arguments against the controversial Texas abortion law on November 1st.
The challenges do not ask the Court to examine the substance of the Texas law, which bans abortions after cardiac activity is detected and includes a unique provision for enforcement: private citizens can sue clinics, doctors, nurses, and even people who drive a woman to get an abortion for at least $10,000.
Next Monday, the Court will hear challenges that concern whether Texas’s private enforcement scheme can be used to insulate the law from constitutional review by federal courts and whether the federal Dept. of Justice has the standing to obtain an injunction against the state of Texas and its agents or against all private parties.
It’s unclear how quickly the Supreme Court will issue a decision on the challenges to the Texas abortion law.

Southern Border Arrests Hit All-Time High
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Friday released data that revealed a record number of people were apprehended attempting to enter the country illegally over the course of fiscal year 2021, which ended September 30th.
CBP apprehended 192,001 unauthorized immigrants in September, which brought the total number of apprehensions for FY2021 to 1,734,686. The number of unaccompanied minors apprehended on the Southern border in September was 14,358. That brought the FY2021 total to 146,925 apprehensions of unaccompanied minors, which also set an annual record.
Are you concerned about the rate of illegal border crossings?
What is Contempt of Congress?
Contempt is used by the House and Senate to respond to actions viewed as obstructing the legislative and oversight process by forcing compliance, punishing the subject of contempt (aka the contemnor), or removing the obstruction.
Congressional contempt power can be exercised in three ways. Read about them here then join the conversation:
How do you feel about Congress’s contempt powers?

Here are the latest coronavirus figures since January 20th at noontime to present 282 days. Cases 21,183,646 new cases last 2 days 154,262. Deaths 470,558 new deaths last two days 3,394. Yet Comrade dear leader Beijing Biden leaves the borders wide open.
Why the hell are these two topics in the same paragraph? They have nothing in common. On the abortion issue, all men, male humans, should stay out of it. No male Supreme Court Justice should have a say. The border crossings are illegal and should be treated as such. Enforce existing laws or change them. No one who is illegally in this country has no right to stay here. Why is it that if you enter through the Mexican border, you don’t have to follow the rules or laws. If you come here from Europe or elsewhere, you are expected to follow the law. The Construction requires equal treatment under the law. I guess the constitution and federal law does not exist on the southern border.
Abortion is a state issue! Let states be free to decide and live where you want! Stop fighting! Build the wall, close the border, poor every undocumented person on a bus home immediately. We are not your gravy train. We all have problems to fix in our own countries. Grow up and fight for yourselves!
Here are the Coronavirus figures since January 20th at noontime to present 279 days. Cases 20,943,168 new cases yesterday 46,296. Deaths 465,660 new deaths yesterday 1,177. President Trump had in one full year had Cases 24,717,808 Deaths 274,761. That was without any vaccines until the last 38 days. Comrade dear leader Beijing Biden has had 3 vaccines since day one but at the end of his first year will have these numbers. Cases 27,398,768 Deaths 609,197. Yet he leaves the borders wide open with no quarantine or testing. At present the government knows that 75,000 Haitians are in caravan mode moving to our borders. The government nor the media will tell you about this group. SHUT THE BORDER AND BUILD THE WALL. How many of the 198,765 illegal aliens have been given the two vaccines?
Go back to building the wall and the agreement with Mexico.
My grandmother gave birth 9 times in 12 years. She was dead and buried at 32. Never never never go back
Oh gee i wonder where scotus will come down on abortion…. Not like bret & amy were truly vetted. Expand the court now President Biden!!!!
The Texas law goes directly against the Constitution, the Law of the Land. What you think personally doesn’t matter. The Law of the Land is bigger than your “personal” view.
Another waist of time as this is a duplicate issue that was already asked. Hope the SCOTUS upholds Texas law. The Roe v Wade stated that abortion should be rare and the left hijacked this rule to many and for any reason they want. It is not just the women’s body people, it also includes the baby’s body. And to kill the baby especially when they can feel extreme pain is cruel, but I have been seeing many left very cruel, so it is not surprising. You want to fix the border crossing...well one way is to bring back President Trump and bring back his policies. Joe totally is a failure. Another way might be to stop giving the illegals free, free, free, free. When being interviewed, the illegals have said several times...the last caravan a few years ago and again a day or two ago...said the reason they are coming is to be better taken care of - hence - free, free, free, free. All those that wants all the illegals coming, the border agents department wants your address so they know where to send them to and that way you can pay for them. Also pass the legislation that was brought up to send all the illegals to all the Communist Democrats congress and senators home state that supports all the illegals in the middle of night, under the cover of darkness, and they were opposed to it. Ask yourself...why would they oppose that but not for forcing them onto the rest of Americans. Now let’s remember Joe’s failure on the failure of the Afghanistan withdrawal and leaving many, many Americans and Green Card holders. Showing his disdain for Americans, which he is again showing with his preference for illegals against the American citizens. Don’t forget about how he hurt the American economy by shutting down America pipeline and drilling, but then let’s Russia have their gas pipeline into Europe. And then asking Saudi Arabia to pump more gas when he was getting hit with bad press. Do you really think that it was to save the earth? No...as we had technology that was cutting the co2 where Russia, Saudi Arabia, Iran, ect do not, they still produce the most dirty drilling. Hope you like paying up to double pricing to try and stay warm this winter, or to go anywhere with the higher price in gas for your vehicles. Also, have you considered that going all electric cars or energy, that the cost of new batteries for cars are sky high and the car batteries are toxic to the world. How do you dispose them? The new green deal has nothing to do with saving the earth, but to take your money for them. Don’t forget Al Gorge, and all the other climate activists always goes to the meetings in their own private planes that is one of the worst emissions. Joe is a failure on the supply chain, inflation, illegals, increase drugs overdoses, crimes, human and sex trafficking...which is the new Communist Democrats slavery - as no one volunteer to be a victim.. For all of you that comments about President Trump separating families and then losing the kids, but says nothing about all the kids Joe and his administration has lost many children’s also....just like you tried to blame President Trump kids in cages until it was revealed that those cages were built u def Obama and Joe’s administration. Now, if anyone really believes that this reconciliation bill will not cost a dime, I have an ocean front property to sell you in Nevada. Don’t forget the lie Obama told you that under the ACA that you would be able to keep your own insurance plan, keep your doctor, and that it would be cheaper and how Nancy Pelosi said that you need to pass the bill to see what is in the bill. They wouldn’t tell you everything that was in the bill u til it past and it was to late. Well they are doing it again, they are not telling the Americans what ALL is in the bill, they don’t want you to know...why? Could be, because they know it will make America into a socialist/communist country and the majority of Americans would not accept the bill. Why else will they not let you know all that is in the bill, but only tell you a very small potion of the 2,500 pages of bill. You know there is so much more in the bill they are not telling you.
Women’s rights are…. Human Rights!
Population control, choices, money for doctor, freedom, less carbon dioxide breathe….
Best be prepared. We might have to retrench into states' rights on the abortion issue. I would like to see young people out there both protesting and voting. There is a directory of safe states that should be accessible to all. It's actually easy to find online.
If I donate my organs at death, it’s a gift. If I do not donate my organs & they are taken, that’s illegal. The same applies to MY uterus while I’m still ALIVE!!!
The SCOTUS has become a political weapon of the right. Women’s autonomy over their reproductive rights is about to be totally dismantled.
Let the law stand! Get the border wall built what are we waiting for? Every day of delays means millions of dollars we need to spend to deal with illegal entrants and their support. Our money is not limitless as democrats would have you think
Let’s look at history’s lesson. The Supreme Court will decide only if SAFE abortions will be available to all women regardless of economic class. Humans do not leave their homes/countries unless there appears no other options for a happy future for themselves and their loved ones. We can hardly blame those emigrating from counties south of our border where crime lords and poverty reigns.The last administration cut our national efforts to help with financial assistance, personal and programs directed towards El Salvador, Nicaragua and nations south of our border. By reinstituting such help, we can minimize migration by stabilizing economies and governments.
As usual, Causes is having difficulty finding topics to post. Here are a few for you: 1) IRS to increase manpower to monitor bank transactions of $600 or more to uncover tax dodging; 2) Biden's ratings still continue to drop; 3) DOJ grossly abuses its authority to promote CRT and punish parents. And what connection does Merrick Garland's son-in-law have in all of this; 4) Did Harris break the law (Johnson Amendment) by engaging in political campaign activity in a church. Why aren't the Democrats yelling "No one is above the law"; 5) Biden speaks against border walls, while he has the Department of Homeland Security award a $456,548 contract to erect a fence around Biden's beach home. You can't make this stuff up.
The law in Texassssss and other location make women guilty until proven innocent, for an example; a women 21 years old in Oklahoma is convicted of manslaughter over a miscarriage, sentence for four years. The autopsy showed the miscarriage could have been cause by a congenital abnormality and placental abruption, the placenta detaches from the womb. This happened to 1 in 4 women. Women under the of 35 have a 15% chance of a miscarriage, also miscarriage have a change to happen in the three to four weeks at about 26%, plus as women get older (45), they have an 80% chance of a miscarriage. So if a women has a drug dependence or addictions and have a miscarriage can see jail time. The majority of women prosecuted are low income, drug-using women and / or women of color. So now we criminalize women miscarriage?
I sure hope and pray that SCOTUS rules to allow the Texas law to remain in place. There is NOWHERE in the constitution that addresses abortion because that was not a consideration when America was founded. But technically it could be argued that the unborn is protected under the constitution because every human has rights and it’s against the law to murder another human being. Life is protected under the constitution not murder and abortion is murder!! To resolve the crisis at the border is to reimplement what President Trump had in place and finish building the wall. Implement strict immigration laws. Democrats need to stop abusing taxpayers because American families need to support their own families and can’t afford supporting other families. When immigrants come they need to be able to support themselves and their own families. Many Americans know that Democrats don’t care about any of these immigrants they are just being used for their political purposes.
Illegal immigrants can be diminished just by finishing the wall we taxpayers already paid for. Put up our wall at the border BEFORE, Biden gets his taxpayer funded wall around his beach house. Biden is such a scum bag.
