Video: John Oliver’s Excellent Take on Anti-Choice TRAP Laws

Abortion is theoretically legal, but some states make it practically inaccessible
Health • Views: 46,674

YouTube

With today’s excellent news about SCOTUS ruling in favor of Whole Women’s Health and throwing out Texas’ extreme anti-choice law (which masqueraded as a “women’s health” measure), here’s a really good John Oliver segment on abortion from a few months ago — and the Whole Women’s Health case is a big part of it.

This should be good:

Washington (CNN)Donald Trump will give an economic policy speech in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, his campaign announced Monday.

Trump’s address — titled “Declaring American Economic Independence” — in Monessen will be his first appearance on the campaign trail since his trip to Scotland, where he promoted his remodeled golf course.

I posted downstairs, but I’ll repeat myself. The current RWNJ talking points is that the Supreme Court has removed any ability to provide any regulation over safety or standards on abortion providers. According to the talking point, somebody in a dirty alley with a coathanger can now call himself a provider and the state is powerless.

Alito’s arguments flat out stink. I still remember him whining about gay marriage opponents being “demonized” in his dissent last summer. I am not a big Roberts fan but I think Roberts at least has some professionalism to him. Alito meanwhile seems to be a whiner who can’t handle it when the conservative view of the law is shown to be crap.

The Trump Baja fiasco fits a pattern in the Republican presidential candidate’s business record. Over decades of building a business empire in real estate, casino gaming, golf resorts, reality television and the sale of clothing and other merchandise, Trump has left a long trail of angry customers and vendors who accused him in court of cheating them.

I agree they do shit about enforcing their own standards but sometimes the appropriate response isn’t to quit and slink away, it’s to publicly call them out on it.

I understand why a lot of folks use Twitter. And Charles has a number of legitimate reasons to use it. But if you post anything political it’s basically an invitation to be harassed by random assholes, an aggravation that I personally don’t need.

Speaking for myself, I prefer to keep a low profile on the internet, so don’t use any social media. I debated with myself for quite a while about registering at LGF and making the occasional comment, but the attraction of a thoughtful, diverse community overcame my reluctance.

I applaud Charles and others who fight the good fight and try to get Twitter to clean up their act. But the anonymity encourages folks to let their asshole flag fly and I’m not sure how Twitter can respond to that. I also suspect it will eventually be their downfall, as folks abandon the platform due to the harassment and filth that goes unchecked.

One reason I find this blog appealing is that it keeps me informed about what is happening without having to dive into the cesspool of RWNJ blogs, tweets and talking points. Hail to the watchers on the wall.

Politico reported that Ben Schreckinger had been typing on his laptop at the event at the San Jose Convention Center when he was approached by a Trump campaign staffer. After consulting with higher-ups, the aide and a private security staffer reportedly escorted Schreckinger out of the venue. Schreckinger had entered on a general admission ticket after repeatedly being denied press credentials for Trump events.

Since most of Trump’s current income is from licensing use of his name/brand, I suspect his campaign will backfire big time. As more and more information comes out about his shady business practices and stories of how he’s cheated people become well known, his brand is taking a big hit. And if he loses the election (fingers crossed), I doubt many folks will be interested in using his brand to promote their businesses.

Monday, June 27, the Republican National Committee said Trump would be holding a campaign fundraiser in Cincinnati Wednesday, July 6. The location was undisclosed but the event will be sponsored by the RNC.

The minimum donation to get into the campaign fundraiser reception will be $2,700 per person. To attend the reception and a photo is a donation of $10,000. To attend a round table, the reception and get a photo is a donation of $25,000 per person.

Part of the point of the anti-choice movement is to run those defending constitutional rights out of money.

The forced-birthers use state government tax funds to fight these cases while organisations like NARAL, the ACLU, and Planned Parenthood all have to use donations.

That’s one reason the cases will never go away; the anti-choicers are using pro-choice taxpayers’ money to fight these things.

They claim to be individual rights too. What could be more individual rights than being able to make a medical decision that has been ruled as legal without fear of government interference. Their entire argument against abortion is based not in the law but their own feeling that abortion is murder, their belief that life begins at conception, etc.

Caught a lame ad earlier attacking Clinton for standing up for her husband when he was accused of rape. Something tells me the people who created that ad are oblivious or don’t care that Trump himself has been accused of rape.

You know you’re a sexist if the thought of two women on the same ticket bothers you but you never think that except Mondale-Ferarro and McCain-Palin every single ticket for a major party has been two men.

I once heard Jimmy Webb say he didn’t really think “Lineman for the county” was a great song because he had “false” rhymes like “time” and “line.” I guess you could say the same for “c**t” and “Trump”. But, close enough for rock and roll.

Pesky storms are located in the uber-rural area of Nebraska. The problem is for the NWS is they are all at the edge of the three radar stations around us: Rapid City, SD, North Platte, and Cheyenne, Wyo. They cannot get a good picture of them on radar, and the roads in that area require a half-track or a tractor.
