    The President did his job. Now it’s up to the Senate. Nothing about Roe vs Wade will change until Congress applies Constitutional Rights to the unborn. If it is overturned, abortion will still be legal in every state where anti-abortion laws have been struck down by the Supreme Court or where it’s been legal for decades.

  2. Thank you Sharyl,
    Judge Barrett will be a wellcomed adition to the supreme court. All of America should be proud of her and what she will bring to our country, especially at times when her talents adn patriotism is needed.

  3. October 12 seems to be too far out. That’s cutting it too close for confirmation before Nov. 3. The Dems always have dirty tricks up their sleeves.

    1. I agree. They should start by Oct 1. Although the rational might be that hearings later in Oct and a confirmation by Nov 1 gives Blacks Love Murder less time to blow the country up. But I’m guessing.

    WHY is the Senate having hearings?? To allow the demonKKKrats to attempt to destroy another fine candidate with unproven smears??
    Come on, McTurtle – if you have the votes, THEN VOTE!! Do NOT put Barrett through this demonKKKrat-driven charade!

  5. Why do we have to wait two weeks? That is the middle of October just two weeks before election. Are the R’s again the Stupid Party? Trying to throw the vote to after the Election?

    (( Marxian pubic ed. teaches : no right or wrong—no wonder . . . ! ))

    Recall that Harvard U. had been caught switching the main cause of heart disease from SUGAR to saturated fats—and MSM stifled the report.

    Recall that mortuaries were caught harvesting tissue and bones from corpses, to be sold.  Who was buying the products?  Big Medicine’s research departments and its tissue-grafting clinics!  1,000 bodies cut up for sale can reap about $6,000,000 in today’s  market (( Babycided tissues reap more; my term, used to strike REALITY into the minds of “abortionist” women and men ))—and MSM continues to stifle reporting about it, to this day.

    1. P.S.

      Left-journalism hid from the public
      this eye-opening news :

      Missouri voter roles had been hacked,
      so it hired a firm to track down the

      The firm traced the hack to that “3rd”
      Agency (( see post referencing that )),
      which explains this MAJOR HACK
      being blamed on RUSSIA, RUSSIA,
      RUSSIA—by leftists (( by Neocons )).

      Why ? :

      1. To better understand Marxism/Socialism/Communism,
        study my 1996 essay (( copy to paper, then nix it ))


        — MARXISM Drives America’s Social and Trade Policies —

        “The doctrine of modern Communism, which is often concealed under the
        most seductive trappings, is in substance based on the principles of dialectical
        and historical materialism previously advocated by Karl Marx . . . Communism is
        particularly characterized by the rejection of any link that binds woman to the
        family and the home, and her emancipation is proclaimed as a basic principle.
        She is withdrawn from the family and the care of her children, to be thrust
        instead into public life and collective production under the same conditions
        as man. The care of home and children then devolves upon the collectivity
        . . . [Communism] subverts the social order” (( discover which pope wrote that,
        and when ))

        —and American civilization rapidly declines,
        accordingly (( read my essay, “Defining ‘Civil Society’
        Down by Defeating Reason with Emotion” )).

        Political affiliation falls on a continuum from
        extreme LEFTISM (( intrusive, doting maternalism )) to
        extreme RIGHTISM (( detached, uncaring paternalism )),
        where extreme leftism (s)mothers the citizenry with
        character-destroying welfare while extreme rightism
        champions independence and self-reliance to the point
        of mercilessness (( study my essay, “Trucfemism” )).

        Moderate maternalism equates with a nurturing
        concern and intrusive attentiveness (( advocating
        sharing and social interdependence )) while moderate
        paternalism equates with instructive detachment and
        inattention (( advocating private property and self-
        reliance )). The extremes of either one are
        destructive while both in moderation may contribute
        much to keeping good civil society. Today, America
        and all other Western democracies suffer from extreme

        — A Hellishly Bad Idea —

        Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels suffered the
        emotional pain of witnessing children slaving under
        the yoke of 19th-century industrialization. They
        turned their deep feelings into a hellishly bad idea,
        which idea to date has caused the unnecessary deaths
        of from 90 to 120 million people; and one may
        attribute to it many more millions, if one counts
        those who died at the hands of the socialist Nazis–
        the National Socialist German Workers’ Party.

        It amazes what convoluted thinking leftists go
        through in trying to dissociate Hitler from leftism—
        dissociate liberal Democrats’ Socialism from the
        insane works of Hitler, as if socialists’ maternalism
        can’t employ fascist tactics (( Lenin, Stalin, Mao Tse-
        tung, Pol Pot )), and as if the sick feminism that
        possessed Marx and Engels wasn’t working in the
        Nazis’ opposition to capitalism (( the leftists
        especially don’t want you to know that the Nazis
        opposed capitalism )), opposition to intellectual
        freedom (( all Marxist tyrants were staunch book
        burners )) and opposition to Communism, which brand
        of socialism the Nazis rejected for only nationalistic

        It’s said that all communists are socialist but
        not all socialists are communist. Nonetheless,
        Hitler’s philosophy and his socialist movement were
        a hybrid offspring of Marx/Engels’ emotional
        collaboration ( The Communist Manifesto ) and Germany’s
        right-wing pursuit of material independence and
        restored national pride. The Nazis’ genocidal
        machinations were characteristically maternal and
        socialistic – a means to the goal of making Germany
        a workers’ paradise – while the cross-border advances
        sprang from angry rightists’ extreme paternalism; a
        drive to show the world who’s boss after the
        humiliating defeat in WW I.

        The only difference between Hitler’s brand of
        socialism and, say, Marxian Ted Kennedy’s is that Hitler’s
        planned utopia was for only the Master Race while
        Kennedy’s is for the world. One might say that the
        Nazis were selfish socialists, or National
        Socialists, and suffered a strange hermaphroditic
        blend of maternalism and paternalism—maternalism
        being the dominant mind for exterminating the Jews
        because only a feminine mind is capable of such
        emotional rage.

        All the other great genocidal maniacs of this
        century were Marxist sympathizers—maternalistic
        killers: Lenin, Stalin, Mao Tse-tung, Pol Pot, and
        more recently, communistic military leaders in
        Serbia. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned—or
        a maternal man angered.

        Maternalism is the creature that infected the
        mind of Marx and Engels. Maternalism is the same
        creature driving today’s liberal Democrats in America
        —and which drove the Nazis to insanity. Maternalism
        is the creature possessing all leftists who conceive
        philosophies opposed to Man’s innate drive to pursue
        a happy life through individual ( moral ) liberty. I call the
        mind of maternalism “emoting feminine mind.” It is
        the destroyer of civilizations.

        In my essay on Maternalism, I present this
        telling formula: Maternalism = Emotionalism =
        Irrationalism = Feminism = Marxism. The root of
        every Marxist-based theory is Maternalism:

        an emotionally irrational response
        to adverse conditions, which require
        rational analysis for remedying, but
        which rational thinking the maternal
        mind is incapable of exercising
        because her emotions are too strong
        and block sound reasoning [[ Both men
        and women have a maternal mind (emot-
        ing feminine mind) and a paternal one
        (rational masculine mind); a conflic-
        ted duality, but with one dominant
        nature that’s mostly gender-corres-
        pondent: paternal men and maternal
        women ]].

        For a socialist, his/her strong emotions
        concerning bad social conditions, such as seeing
        child slaving over machinery in a factory, demand
        immediate remedy to soothe the bad feelings (their
        drive to feel strongly about anything notwithstand-
        ing). Such a remedy might include destroying the
        factory, or denying the child’s family the meager
        but lifesaving wage, or executing everyone but the
        abused children.

        Such knee-jerk responses have been repeated again
        and again in less direct ways in our courts and
        legislatures these past sixty years; the worst of
        them being the 1964 Civil Rights Act (( it unconstitu-
        tionally abridged the rights of the majority by
        providing special rights for a racially incompatible
        minority )), the 1965 Immigration Act (( invited diverse
        races to overrun and dangerously divide the consti-
        tutionally protected majority that opposed such
        immigration )), and the Democrats’ Great Society Pro-
        grams (( confiscatory taxation of the productive major-
        ity for nurturing and growing an unproductive poverty
        class )), all of which have badly damaged America’s
        social infrastructure.

        — Karl Marx and Free Trade —

        Marxism is at the root of certain officials’ push
        towards installing the mechanism for achieving Global
        Economic Socialism: INTERNATIONALISM, which success-
        ful implementation requires that WHITE CIVIL SOCIETY
        in America be subject to the FORCED INTEGRATION of
        diverse races—using open borders, multiculturalism,
        multilingualism, and FREE TRADE to diminish whites’
        political and cultural strength; the State Depart-
        ment’s “Diversity Program,” in which it searches
        for UNDER-REPRESENTED MINORITIES from around the
        world, to plant in white communities, is integral to
        the effort (( State has announced plans on April 22
        for bringing over 3000 more Laotians )).

        Karl Marx valued free trade as a step towards
        achieving the workers’ paradise. In a speech given
        to the Democratic Association in Brussels, in 1848,
        Marx said:

        “We are told that free trade would
        create an international division
        of labor, and thereby give to each
        country the production which is
        most in harmony with its natural
        advantages [what liberal economists
        today refer to as “comparative
        advantage”] . . . [which] breaks up
        old nationalities and pushes the
        antagonism of the proletariat and
        the bourgeoisie to the extreme point.
        It is in this revolutionary sense
        alone, gentlemen, that I vote in
        favour of free trade.”

        Marx was correct in his assessment of free
        trade. The proletariat (( industrial working class )) in
        America is suffering great fear and seething with
        anger at the loss of America’s industrial base while
        a significant part of the bourgeois class of white
        collar workers is stunned by its unprecedented rout
        from the workforce, to accommodate both the incoming
        low-wage guest workers from Third World countries and
        the outsourcing of jobs to India, China, Pakistan, and the

        Bob Dole, Newt Gingrich, Dick Armey, Bill
        Clinton, and their compatriot vulture capitalists in
        multinational corporations have engineered the
        beginning of the end of America’s middle class with
        passage of NAFTA, GATT and accedence to the WTO
        governing body.

        They’re planning a North America Free Trade Zone
        to complete the plan, which necessarily will force
        America’s standard of living to decline towards that
        lowest common denominator within the trade zone–
        Mexico. If you wish to see your children’s future,
        travel in Mexico (( or in “Hispanic” parts of L.A. ))–
        but don’t get in a car accident or altercation in
        Mexico; you’ll have a very hard time escaping the
        low-culture corruption there.

        Your tax dollars are being used to defeat you—
        to support the invaders and destroy your nation for

        Wake up, America!
