Trump Hits DeSantis For Signing Heartbeat
Law: ‘A Terrible Thing And A Terrible Mistake’

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 9/18/2023 10:17:13 AM

Former President Donald Trump criticized Republican governors who have signed pro-life laws — also known as “heartbeat laws” — that ban abortion after six weeks, calling the bill signed into law by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis “a terrible thing and a terrible mistake.” Trump made the remarks during a Sunday interview with Kristen Welker on NBC News’s “Meet The Press” in which she pressed to get specifics on where Trump stood on the issue, telling him that her goal was to “give voters who are going to be weighing in on this election a very clear sense of where you stand.”

What in the hell is he talking about? This isn't like negotiating a "number" for a tax increase or decrease. We are talking about human life...can't put a number on that. Very, very disappointed with his mushiness on this issue.

OK, now I am open to other candidates. Let's hear what they say on the same topic. It was OK for Trump to want to avoid the topic federally, since that was SCOTUS advice. It is not OK for him to weigh down the governors. And by the way. It is NOT clever to angle for voters who want flattery on past abortions because the demands never end. You must allow abortion. To birth. You must not praise motherhood. You must back off the value of human life. It never ends. No use going after them. OK, I want to hear about de Santis again. Haley? I am open.

Trump gave us the prolife Judges the establishment republicans would never put forth. Roe was overturned and left for states to disagree over among locally elected officials. If the good people of Maine wish to allow fourteen year old girls to abort their smiling two year olds and put it to a vote, it is not the place of God fearing people of Alabama to object. Nor is it the buiness of Hollywood elitists to dump money into state supreme court elections in say, Wisconsin, so that some unqualified, gold digging, smiling racist, elder abusing drunk can proclaim all abortions legal. Trump gave prolifers what they fought for--- the right to convince, persuade and encourage young troubled mothers that the child within is a person with rights. Specifically the right to live. We ourselves need to take up the argument not at the presidential level, but at the local level. Support for those young mothers facing the pressures of the pro abortion industry, demand that professed prolife elected be prolife, not to support tax payer funded services. This is no longer a federal issue unless the states, by the amendment process, make it so.

It seems Trump is on board letting abortion be decided by the states. I agree with that. I think advocating for a national abortion law at this time is unwise. Take the huge Dobbs win, take Congress and the White House then deal with abortion. I do wish Trump had the sense to stop attacking DeSantis from the left. Petty and stupid.

fta:“I think they’re all going to like me, I think both sides are going to like me,” Trump told Welker when pressed for more details. “What’s going to happen is you’re going to come up with a number of weeks or months, you’re going to come up with a number that’s going to make people happy.” --- No no no. Just stop it! It was horrible when the Democrats did it and and it is just as bad when Republicans do it. No one on the GOP side should be talking about this on the Federal level. No one! It has been sent back to the States and there it should stay. The States are a far more localized predictor of the temperament of the people, you know the ones that cast the votes, that whole "We The People" stuff. Yeah THOSE people. Do I think abortion is a sinful scourge? Yes I do. But I think the solution is States governing their own people and State legislatures hashing this issue out with the input of their own citizens is the best solution at the present. Unlike Democrats, no one on our side is going to benefit from asking the question "When exactly is it okay to kill an unborn baby?"

This is FEDERALISM, Mr. President. Thanks to the Justices you fought for, it's the law of the land, and most of us can live with that. I respectfully submit that you use your time and pulpit to relentlessly hammer Joe Biden for his multi-pronged attacks on this nation. That can't be done enough. Especially considering your lead over Gov. DeSantis, that would be much more productive than divisive media fodder like this.

Stop trashing DeSantis, Trump. Enough. It is unnecessary, counter productive and a real turn off attacking a fellow conservative republican. You demean yourself in the eyes of many. Stop, focus on real Rhino republicans and the communist death democrats.

I guess President Trump isn't that comfortable with the leads of polls. Why would you create this ridiculous headline that diminishes respect for Florida's that supported that legislation? A confident candidate would state his own view and respect the views of Republican governors (AND their constituents). This recklessness hurts him.

I see the DeSantis people finally come out of the tall grass to try to grab an issue and be more Trump than Trump. Ron will never peel off the prolife vote because he will never not have that same Bush (Margaret SAnger) eau du planned parenthood aftershave. This issue will settle out as it has in what remains of the free world, an unhappy uncomfortable limitation on abortions after 12 or 15 weeks---- not unlike the stupidity of Brennan trying to draw lines in his Roe decision. You cannot convince people for whom God has become an afterthought that "even in the womb, I knew you", but you can persuade some that that person has a right to live that comes into play long long long before birth. You need to persuade your fellow man at a spiritual, not a political level.

Trying to get the liberal women to vote for you won’t work even if you said abortion up to birth. Trump is still worried about DeSantis.

C'mon, man, the answer is simple SCOTUS declared abortion is a 10 th Amendment issue , period. If he was running for governor it would be an issue. It is no longer a presidential issue.

U.N.

Guterres has enthusiastically billed the “Climate Ambition Summit” as a “no nonsense” forum where leaders or cabinet ministers will announce specific actions that deliver on their commitments under the Paris Agreement. It comes two months after he issued a cataclysmic warning “the era of global boiling is here” as Breitbart News reported. Trouble is, the event is diminished because few of the leaders of the world’s most advanced economies will attend or send representatives, AFP reports.

Earlier today I wrote about the layoffs happening at Ibram Kendi’s Center for Antiracist Research. More than half of the staff is now gone at a group that launched three years ago with more than $13 million in funding from big donors. But the situation at the Center for Antiracist Research is part of a larger pattern. The institutional left in general has been laying off people in droves. Last month Justice Democrats laid off half its staff. Back in May, Planned Parenthood laid off 10%-20% of its national workforce. The Sierra Club laid off workers in April. And the Sunrise Movement laid off workers last year. NY Times opinion columnist

Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., while announcing his 10-point plan to end the plastics pollution crisis, said he would ban fracking. The process of fracking involves high pressure injections of liquid into underground rocks and layers to open fissures and extract oil or gas. The United Nations says each year, 19-23 million tons of plastic waste leaks into waterways, polluting rivers, seas, and lakes. [snip] The move would also drive the price of oil above $150 per barrel, while killing state budgets for energy producing states.

The Biden administration is setting a booby trap in case a Republican wins the presidency in 2024. On Friday, the White House unveiled a proposed rule that would make it even harder than in the past for an incoming Republican president to wrestle control of the left-leaning federal bureaucracy and actually implement the conservative policies promised to voters. Of the 2.2 million federal civil workers, only 4,000 are presidential appointees. The rest stay in their jobs, from one administration to the next, protected by rules that make it nearly impossible to discipline or replace them.
