Good morning.

Awful news from Japan.  RIP, Shinzo Abe.

What the hell is happening to the world?

Biden signs executive order on abortion access (

So, I guess we longer need the Supreme Court.  The resident in the White House can just override their decisions.  That sure was easy.  I guess we don't have to worry about having to call him president Biden anymore, King Biden will do from now on.

In #3 Alice in Dairyland said: The resident in the White House can just override their decisions. 

The article is poorly written, but no, the EO does not appear to simply "override" Dobbs.  The most concrete thing in is providing leave for Federal workers who are traveling for "medical care" (which is Progspeak for "killing their unborn children").  They also all credulously repeat Biden's line that it's up to " Congress to restore the protections of Roe v. Wade as federal law". 

No discussion, of course, as to whether Congress has the legitimate power to do that.

Enumerated Powers of the Government.
1-Power to tax and spend for the general welfare and the common defense.
2-Power to borrow money.
2-To regulate commerce with states, other nations, and Native American tribes.
3-Establish citizenship naturalization laws and bankruptcy laws
4-Coin money
5-Power to punish counterfeiters of money and stocks
6-Power to establish post offices and roads
7-Power to regulate patents and copyrights
8-Power to establish lower courts from the Supreme Court
9-Power to establish piracy laws of the sea
10-To declare war
11-Power to raise and support Army
12-Provide and maintain the Navy
13-Make rules for the Government and regulation of naval forces
14-Power to call a militia (National Guard today)
15-Power of regulating a militia
16-Power to govern the District of Columbia and properties for federal government purposes
17-Authority to create laws that are necessary and proper to carry out the laws of the land

17 is only to support 1-16, doesn't mean a blank check for expansion of government.

Now let's look at the 9th and 10th Amendments.

Amendment IX
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

There should not even be a discussion, but since Theodore Roosevelt gov't has constantly exceeded its authority.

Well, there it is.

Fetuses are little pirates, robbing womyn of their rights; and the uterus is kind of like a sea, of... uterus.

Add some emanations and penumbras, and Bob's your uncle.

I agree, it doesn't override Dobbs.  I just wonder if they'll reimburse me for traveling to MI to buy pot, it's not legal in WI or traveling to Reno to gamble, that's not legal here either (well, not counting the Indian casinos).  I just don't like the undermining of the Supreme Court decision.  It seems like every law we have in this country has a work-around to it.  I'm tired of the games they play.

Well, pot is still federally illegal as where I work reminds us (not that I want any) and gambling isn't medical.

On the plus side; the Dems have really let their mask fall on this.  They are falling all over themselves to demonstrate that killing unborn children is of absolute, utmost importance to them.  Normal America, take note.

All abortions aren't either.

There is something fishy about the story of the 10-year-old who had to go to another state to get an abortion after being raped (behind paywall that doesn't block me for some reason)

There are major problems and inconsistencies with this story that no one in Big Media noticed or cared about. First, where is the police report or the social services investigation into the rape of the child? Who will be held accountable for child rape and why isn’t that an issue in any of the reporting? I was unable to find any verified police investigation connected to this story. Another troubling fact is the source of this claim is one person: Dr. Caitlin Bernard, an abortionist and activist who is all over the media advocating for more abortions and unrestricted abortions.

If there are requests, I'll post a pub thread
