The city of San Francisco has added 22 states with laws limiting abortion access to a blacklist that prevents city employees from traveling to those states on the city’s dime or dealing with businesses based in them. The ban will take effect on January 1, 2020. “We are standing up against states that put women’s health at risk and that are actively working to limit reproductive freedoms,” said Mayor London Breed in a press release announcing the ban. “By limiting travel and contracting with certain states, we are sending a clear message to states that disregard the right to abortion.”


No problem. Most of the country is blacklisting San Francisco. Clean up your act, California, before you cast the first stone.

The City by The Cesspool is taking a moralistic stand against moral states who hold that innocents in the womb should live.

Just a couple of questions. How could this be legal, considering the First Amendment free speech provision? Then, what about the 14th Amendment interstate commerce clause? This virtue-signaling nonsense might make these imbecilic Lefties feel good, but would never pass a legal challenge.

The republic can not stand when states and cities are boycotting each other. One state has no right to punish another for its laws. One state has no right to force another to change its laws, because they dont like them. The left is inviting and provoking a conflict.

Then those states need to respond that no state funds may be used to support business or academic travel to San Fran. The city has allowed illegal aliens sanctuary even to the point of a young woman being murdered without significant penalty. It has permitted the ruin of its attractiveness with open unpenalized drug use and public defecation. I personally will not visit again and that includes any visits to the wine country across the bridge. But we should demand from our state reps that no official travel even to attend 'meetings' should be supported if using state moneys. And BTW once a federal grant enters a state coffer it becomes state money.

#6, If I can take a quick stand behind a pulpit... People are like this because people are sinful. They are not born with a blank slate that is as pure as the wind driven snow. They are born with a 'me first' drive that is, in essence, what the serpent tempted Eve with in the garden of Eden 'you shall be as God...'. Those who think they are God (even if they say there IS no God... that is done by a rather insidious proclamation of a personally divine nature) have no problem at all doing the things that a God would do. 1. Decide who gets to be born 2. Decide what sex they want to be, despite biological certainty. 3. Trample over any and all moral lines in order to maintain their godhood. 4. Excuse any sexually deviant proclivity as a biological inevitability (born that way... sort of a perverse form of predestination) 5. Sit in absolute judgment over any soul who dares to challenge their status as a god. You are like that. I am like that. EVERYONE is like this. BUT, some of us have some degree of understanding that a higher authority exists. And it is this higher authority that reminds us that we are NOT God. Ie., we believe that there are actually some inalienable rights that we were born with because our Creator wanted us to live in freedom and not in bondage. Funny thing is, freedom is found on a rather narrow path. Fall off that path and their are a thousand ways to be ensnared into bondage...

These spiritually ill people appear to want to go to hell, although instead of being flung into the Stygian depths, they intend to perform the last line of Wallace Stevens's "Sunday Morning" : "Downward to darkness on extended wings." They are of their master, the devil, and they hate all that is good.

States should treat this like they treat Concealed Carry Permits. It's called reciprocity. If your state recognizes my state, then my state will recognize yours. Kalifornia doesn't recognize any other states permits and no one should recognize theirs. Thankfully, Louisiana doesn't, and I literally go the extra miles when traveling, to avoid their state. State governments can implement the same system, regarding state employee travel or state spending. I'm sure that anything San Fran has, can be obtained elsewhere.

"...put women's health at risk..." I bet that Mayor Breed (now there's an interesting coincidence) sees no hypocrisy with his statement and the filthy conditions of his city's streets where women and men and boys and girls and everyone's health is put at risk. And the truth about the abortion business is that it is all about THE MONEY, not the women wanting to have the abortion. There are plenty of people in the pro-abortion movement who know that billions of dollars are made in the vaccine and cosmetic and research and development industries using those aborted fetuses. I would assume there are studies comparing the effects of the vaccines that use products of aborted fetuses against prior vaccines where they were not used. I heard someone question the effect of having the DNA from a female aborted fetus being used in a vaccine where a male is the recipient. I wonder if anyone is doing research in this area?

We have a serious governance problem. Our system is based on separation of powers, because liberty depends on preventing any component of the state from accumulating too much authority — that’s how tyrants are born. For the system to work, the components have to be able to check each other: The federal and state governments must respect their separate spheres, and the branches of the federal government must be able to rein in a branch that oversteps its authority. The steady federal encroachment on state authority has created an imbalance that probably cannot be rolled back. I want to focus on the collapse of inter-branch checks in the federal government. This

‘No more paughtraits,” John Singer Sargent (1856–1925) wrote to a friend in 1907. Sargent was wry and honest. He was famous by then for his oil portraits of rich people. He’d done a thousand of them, starting with the Paris nouveau riche social climbers and then British aristocrats and American plutocrats. He was a savant, famous at 25 for Madame X, and a wonderful, intelligent artist. At 50, though, he was sick of rich people. He’d grown wealthy himself — painting those portraits — but finally declared independence. He wouldn’t, he proclaimed, do any more portraits. Well, yes and no. Yes, for the rest of his

The Supreme Court has agreed to take up a dispute over the constitutionality of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in a case that could dramatically scale back the agency's authority to police financial markets or eliminate it altogether. The court said Friday it will hear a challenge from a California-based law firm that argues the CFPB, the brainchild of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, is unconstitutionally structured. Opponents of the CFPB, created in 2010, argue that its structure violates the separation of powers, as Congress gave it broad authority to regulate mortgages, credit cards, and other consumer products,

After the so-called “blue wave” of Democratic victories in the 2018 midterm election, the grassroots of both parties looked to the 2019 off-year as a testing ground for the 2020 presidential cycles. With only four states in play and sporadic special elections, 2019’s small skirmishes were hailed as indicators for how the Republican Party would fare in 2020. The result? Well, predictions of another blue wave in 2020 have been tempered by a steady GOP wave in 2019 that signals bad news for Democrats as congressional redistricting kicks off.

As a concept, freedom of speech arguably dates back to Socrates. He said to his prosecutors, "If you offered to let me off this time on condition I am not any longer to speak my mind... I should say to you, 'Men of Athens, I shall obey the Gods rather than you.'" While Plato was busy writing dialogues and showing us that Socrates was advocating for free speech more than 2000 years ago, freedom of speech as a legal right did not actually exist until the 17th century. The people of both the United States and Britain were ensured certain rights. Both countries grant freedom of speech, although in modern

The headline below tells us a lot more than the Democrat partisans at the Washington Post intended. After two weeks of closed-door testimony, a clearer portrait of Trump’s role emerges How does closed-door testimony tells the Washington Post and its readers anything? By leaks, of course. So, a “clearer portrait” is being painted by leakers with the agenda of damaging President Trump. There is no pretense of presnting a full picture that would include information that would not support the Democrats' agenda. As Ed Lasky commented, “Pelosi, Schiff & company are controlling the narrative via leaks. This is repulsive.” Lauri Regan said, "I guess the irony got past the editors."
