Original Article

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk, 12/5/2019 3:50:42 AM

The Senate confirmed four trial court nominees to the federal bench Wednesday, among them a public interest lawyer Democrats say will trim abortion rights. (Snip) Pitlyk joined the Thomas More Society as special counsel after graduating Yale Law School and practicing law in Washington, D.C., and St. Louis. The Thomas More Society is a public interest law practice that litigates pro-life and religious liberty causes. Her pro-life advocacy has included criticism of surrogacy and fertility treatments. Pitlyk also defended David Daleiden, an activist whose undercover videos purport to show Planned Parenthood executives arranging the sale of fetal tissue.

Comments:

As the dRATS infanticide party continues their destructive nature against President Trump, he gets a judge approved who is known for openly being "pro-life", and more importantly, once clerked for Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh.

Sounds like a good trade. 4 dem witlesses for 4 Conservative judges. If we could keep that up through the whole process, there wouldn't be a single liberal judge on the federal bench and Trump would still be President.

President Trump has been granted a temporary victory in his effort to shield his financial records from House Democrats, and by an unlikely source — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

Washington - Congress is nearing a deal on paid parental leave for federal employees, according to four sources familiar with the negotiations. It's a significant development for government workers but one that highlights the disparity with most American workers, who still aren’t given paid leave. The agreement would give 2.1 million non-military federal workers 12 weeks of paid leave to care for a newborn or adopted child or to care for a family member, according to sources familiar with the details of the discussions. If passed, the bill would the become first time the federal government has guaranteed civilian employees access to paid parental leave.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has faced criticism from prominent Republican lawmakers and President Donald Trump for the way she has led the impeachment inquiry, but her daughter said that her mother’s actions are an attempt to tell women to “define yourself.” “That is what she is now — telling women ‘reclaim yourself. Don’t be defined by other people’s expectations or mischaracterizations of you,’ ” Christine Pelosi said to CNN’s Brooke Baldwin on “Newsroom” Friday. Christine Pelosi’s comments come a day after the speaker pushed back a Sinclair reporter who asked whether she hates Trump, issuing a scathing warning: “Don’t mess with me.”

Bernie Sanders unveiled a plan Friday to expand broadband internet access as part of a push to boost the economy and reduce corporate power over Americans. In his sprawling “High-Speed Internet for All” proposal, the Vermont senator and Democratic presidential candidate calls to treat internet like a public utility. His campaign argues that the internet should not be a “price gouging profit machine” for companies such as Comcast, AT&T and Verizon. Sanders’ plan would create $150 billion in grants and aid for local and state governments to build publicly owned broadband networks as part of the Green New Deal infrastructure initiative.

A family thought thought their home had been ransacked by burglars — but it turns out it was an inside job. A Cocker Spaniel puppy named Dory trashed the joint while her humans were out shopping, turning the “when the cat’s away” cliché on it’s head. (Snip) That’s when they noticed the “nibble marks” on everything — and realized Dory had quite the afternoon. The 11-month-old pup had emptied the kitchen cupboards and garbage can, littering the home with trash, biscuits, assorted chocolates and cooking utensils. “Dory is just a full-time nutcase who enjoys causing havoc,” Dylan, a 21-year-old medical biochemistry student, told Caters News.

In the aftermath of Donald Trump,

Sen. Kamala Harris would have been an excellent president. But it was never going to happen. The elephant in the room was just too big. She is a woman and she is black. And in the aftermath of Donald Trump, she never had a chance at gaining the kind of broad support needed to keep her campaign financially viable. That’s why she abruptly withdrew from the race on Tuesday. America isn’t progressive enough to elect a black woman as head of state, any more than it was when Shirley Chisholm ran in 1972. It’s questionable whether our country can elect a woman, period.

A little something to cleanse the palate. She said this in an interview today with Howard Stern, which makes it slightly less weird since chatter about lesbians is like 40 percent of the content on that show. Or at least it was when I was a regular listener a million years ago. (In fairness to Stern, she’s the one who brings it up.) He went easy on her by not asking the obvious follow-up: What were you doing at Epstein’s ranch, then? She should consider this a missed opportunity, as a surprise admission of bisexuality would have helped add a little more “diversity” to an upcoming Democratic debate.

This Friday, the top four NCAA Division III women’s soccer teams face off in the national semifinals. One of the final four teams’ goalkeepers, Isa Berardo, is a male transgender playing as a female for Pomona-Pitzer Colleges. Not surprisingly, the male goalie has dominated the field against opposing female players, giving his own a chance to win the national championship thanks to his physical advantages in a key position. This is increasingly happening throughout women’s sports, at all levels from elementary school through professional competitions. It’s creating not equality, but inequality.

Oscar-winning actress and climate activist Emma Thompson has seen the future and behold, it is grim. She warned Thursday the “climate crisis” means Britons must prepare for “crop failures” and the prospect of eating their own pets to survive a future of cataclysmic weather events, great suffering and injustice. The star, 60, spoke outside the BBC Broadcasting House in central London at an Extinction Rebellion protest to deliver her warning to followers, claiming “general consensus does suggest there is an imminent crisis forecast.” As she braced herself in front of two maps, held up by activists in swimming cap and goggles, that showed areas at risk of flooding by 2030,
