Ohio's heartbeat bill gains national momentum

The so-called "heartbeat bill," which prohibits abortions as early as six weeks into a woman's pregnancy, has been endorsed by Vice President Mike Pence and is seen as a credible threat to the landmark case Roe v. Wade.

Porter, a former legislative director with Ohio Right to Life and current leader of Faith2Action, was frustrated with the slow, incremental approach that other conservatives were taking toward banning abortion. She clashed with her former organization, dividing Republicans into conservatives and arch-conservatives.

The legislation has not taken effect anywhere yet, blocked by court decisions or pending legal actions. The Eighth District Court of Appeals has struck down two state's laws as unconstitutional, and the U.S. Supreme Court declined to weigh in so far.

VP Mike Pence and presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg (D - IN) continue battling over homosexuality

“Since some are asking: the last time we recall Pence even mentioned @PeteButtigieg was in 2015, after news that Pete came out, Pence said: “I hold Mayor Buttigieg in the highest personal regard. I see him as a dedicated public servant and a patriot,” tweeted spokeswoman Alyssa Farah.

“People will often be polite to you in person, while advancing policies that harm you and your family,” he tweeted. “You will be polite to them in turn, but you need not stand for such harms. Instead, you push back, honestly and emphatically. So it goes, in the public square.”

“After years of maintaining a positive, working relationship with Vice President Pence, Buttigieg has decided that it’s now more politically expedient for him to drag that relationship through the mud with personal attacks," Kyle Hupfer, chairman of the Indiana Republican Party, said in a statement.

Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg claims that VP Mike Pence might have a problem with his creator

Buttigieg, in a speech at LGBTQ Victory Fund National Champagne Brunch in Washington, D.C., referenced the vice president's less-than-welcoming attitude toward members of the LGBTQ community when discussing his marriage to his husband Chasten. He called marriage equality a moral issue, saying his marriage of two years has made him a "better human being."

"I can tell you, that if me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade," he added, to a room full of loud cheers. "And that's the thing I wish the Mike Pence's of the world could understand, that if you have a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator."

"The struggle is not over when states like my own home state of Indiana don't even have hate crime legislation. The struggle is not over when in so many parts of the country it's perfectly legal to fire somebody because of who they are and who th

On the NATO's 70th anniversary

1. CGTN America:

The U.S. Congress invited Jens Stoltenberg to demonstrate its unwavering support for NATO amid rising tensions with Russia over the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty aimed at preventing a nuclear confrontation.

“We do not want a new arms race. We do not want a new Cold War. But we must not be naive. An agreement that is only respected by one side will not keep us safe,” said Jens Stoltenberg the NATO Secretary-General.

Drumpf’s individual relationship with NATO has been turbulent, partly because he wants closer relations with Russia, though his administration is pressuring fellow NATO member Turkey to drop an arms purchase from Moscow.

Loyalties


This is what got Rep. Ilhan Omar in trouble:
At a recent event, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said, in a reference to American Jewish supporters of Israel, “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says that it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country.” When criticized by House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita M. Lowey (D-N.Y.), who is Jewish, Omar wrote on Twitter, “I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress.”
This is what Vice President Mike Pence said today at the annual conference of AIPAC, the America-Israel Political Affairs Committee, the preeminent American pro-Israeli lobbying group:

On the AIPAC and Netanyahu

1. Haaretz:

Netanyahu, for one, certainly doesn’t need another AIPAC speech: He’s been making them for 35 years, since he became Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations. But the lobby’s annual jamboree was a convenient pretext for him to fly to Washington and get the endorsement from Drumpf that he believes will help him in the election.

He called AIPAC a “great organization” and took a few digs (without specifically naming her) at freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who has been at the center of controversy for attacking AIPAC using barely veiled anti-Semitic tropes. But you could see his heart wasn’t in it.

_ To remain viable over the coming years, AIPAC will need to retain the support it still has on the Democratic side and fight to regain that which it has lost from the party’s more progressive wing. A Drumpf-emb

Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar arrives in US, accompanied by partner Matt Barrett


“I stand here this morning as leader of my country, flawed and human, but judged on my political actions and mistakes and not on my sexual orientation or my skin tone or my gender or my religious beliefs. I do not believe my country is the only one in the world where my story is possible. It is found in every country where freedom and liberty are cherished. We are, after all, all God’s children.”

I guess that Mr. Pence had a hard time struggling with his disgust emitted by this homosexual couple. I mean, as an arch conservative Christian... He actively promoted the natural family image, as far as I'm concerned.

Noting that 32 million Americans trace their ancestry back to Ireland, Mr Pence said that Irish people’s contribution to American history stretch all the way back to the revolutionary war and long before. “The partnership between our two countries has never been stronger,” he said.

Just a short question, since I'... show more


 

House speaker Nancy Pelosi reclaims her God-given office space


When Paul Ryan was speaker, he gave Vice President Mike Pence an extra office on the first floor of the House side of the U.S. Capitol Building shortly after President Drumpf's inauguration, making him the first Vice President since Dick Cheney to have offices on both sides of the Capitol.

"This is not big deal. Why make it seem that way," disagreed Paul Simpson. "Unfortunately, this is why people say Fake News."

It's not fake news to report about something that actually happened. I would rather call it sensationalist, but hey, so what? It didn't make up the headlines on page one of the New York Times, did it? It's a little sidenote, nothing else. Google News didn't even mention it in its U.S.-chapter, so how would one make such a fuss about it? I just shared it for fun.

"Greetings from Trump". Silence.


“I bring greetings from the 45th President of the United States of America, President Donald Drumpf.” Pence then paused for applause but no one in the room clapped. After what seem like a very long five seconds, Pence continues with his speech.

The vice president was also supposed to introduce House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (and wait for her applause) but he ended up skipping that introduction.

I guess they would have applauded about Ms. Pelosi's introduction, because unlike Donnie, she's a partially reasonable personality in the White House.

How fucking DELUDED must you be to think that Dumbfuck Donnie would be an applause line anywhere but at one of Donnie's stupid Redneck Nuremberg Rallies held in places like Sisterfuck, Arkansas? These fucking morons like Pence are too busy huffing each others' farts in their echo chamber of fake news. They really do think this fucking moron is popular.

On the Munich Security Conference


In one awkward moment Friday, US Vice President Mike Pence said he was bringing greetings from Drumpf, only to be met with stony silence from a room full of national leaders, ministers and generals.

A French government source criticised the Drumpf administration's approach as "we're leaving, you're staying" and added: "They're trying to manage the consequences of a hasty decision and making us carry the responsibility."

Talking about bringing back ISIL fighters from Europe to punish them before court, while the US are going to let the Kurds down...

On Nord Stream 2, Merkel said that Europe was already buying Russian gas through other pipelines and declared that "a Russian gas molecule is a Russian gas molecule, no matter whether it comes via Ukraine or through the Baltic Sea".

US VP compares recently deceased AZ Sen. John McCain to POTUS Donald Trump


In an ambitious attempt to bandage over domestic and geopolitical wounds, Pence continued: “In one moment he [McCain]would speak to you in light terms, always setting you at ease, and in a few moments that would change, as he would tell you how things really needed to be. And I think that’s a distinctly American quality. It's a quality I promise you that we have in the president of the United States today.”

Damn! Now I have a dent on my table and a lump on my forehead.

US VP Mike Pence wants Europe to cease relations to Iran


In our news wrap Thursday, Vice President Pence criticized European allies for staying in the Iran nuclear deal, saying they were intending to break U.S. sanctions against Iran. His remarks came at a conference discussing peace and stability in the Middle East. Also, the Senate confirmed William Barr as attorney general. He previously served in the role under former President George H.W. Bush.

Sadly, some of our leading European partners have not been nearly as cooperative. In fact, they have led the effort to create mechanisms to break up our sanctions. They call this scheme a special purpose vehicle. We call it an effort to break American sanctions against Iran's murderous revolutionary regime.

You never asked anyone if it was fine to sanction Iran, your president just moved ahead and put sanctions on this country, for allegations unproven so far. Trump said that Iran broke with the nuclear treaty, while Iran said that they didn't. It hasn't been investigated until then, and the Eur... show more

Vice President Mike Pence calls for putsch on Venezuelan president NIcolas Maduro


"This is no time for dialogue," Pence said at a church in the Doral suburb of Miami, prompting loud cheers among exiles who fled their homeland. "It is time to end the Maduro regime."

"I am here as the face of many mothers who live with the fear that their husbands won't come home. That the father of their kids won't return. That their children live a childhood full of fear and persecution," said Francis Suarez, wife of Ravanguoy, who wore a shirt that said "Make Venezuela Free Again."
