Abortion the Top Priority for Democrats

By John Semmens

This week President Biden announced that the first piece of legislation that he will ask Congress to enact in 2023 is “a bill restoring the nationwide right to an abortion that was illegally undone by the Supreme Court this year. The notion that each state should be allowed to decide for itself whether to permit or restrict this sacred right is the kind of disunity that I pledged to eradicate when I took my oath of office in January of 2021. We simply cannot not abide different rights in different states.”

“Not only should every woman everywhere be allowed to obtain an abortion,” Biden added. “The government must cover the cost of the procedure so that even the poorest woman has an equal opportunity to dispose of an unwanted child at no out-of-pocket cost. The contention that one’s personal religious beliefs or ethical objections to killing an unborn baby should exempt him from being compelled to finance another person’s abortion is at odds with the principles of a progressive society and can no longer be tolerated.”

Biden’s pitch for a nationwide expansion of abortion rights was seconded by Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams, who maintains that “restricting abortion enslaves women. Bearing and raising children is hard work. Denying women the option of avoiding this work by limiting their access to abortion is slavery, pure and simple.” Abrams also went on to recommend that “a good way to offset the impact of rising prices would be to abort that extra mouth to feed during these hard times.”

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif) is running a reelection campaign ad that urges women “to avoid the risk of being arrested for killing your unborn child by voting Democrat. Republicans are willing to allow states to restrict when–typically not after viability–and how–usually barring dismemberment or requiring anesthesia to prevent the baby from experiencing pain–abortions are performed. Only a Democrat majority in Congress can be counted on to maintain a ‘no holds barred’ approach to ending an unwanted pregnancy. Remember that when you cast your ballots.”

Dems Worried About Covid

By: John Semmens

Biden COVID response coordinator Ashish Jha says he has “two major worries about a possible uptick in covid that could infect over 100 million Americans by Fall. The increasingly infectious variants mean more people will catch the disease. On the other hand, the diminishment of symptoms means that hardly anyone will realize they are infected.”

“People who don’t realize they are infected won’t feel an urgency to get tested or vaccinated,” he predicted. “The whole pandemic infrastructure will be underutilized. People will be going about their business as if life is normal. Their willingness to obey directives to wear masks, avoid crowds, shun social interactions, spy on their neighbors and report deviant behavior will wither. They may reject supporting the Party that cared for them these past few years and vote Republican in numbers too large to overcome via ballot harvesting. Unbelievers could displace the faithful and engineer a dangerous revival of the way we lived before the pandemic.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci sadly concurred with Jha’s assessment, saying “when covid was killing people by the thousands for week after week we had the people’s attention. They complied with our directives. They shuttered their businesses, wore masks, stopped going to church, did as they were told. The evolution of covid toward a milder disease has broken the bond of trust they put in us. Disbelief dogs our every utterance now. Those of us who have been fighting the pandemic since day one will likely come to regard it as ‘the good old days.’ I shudder to think of what it might be like with Republican majorities in both Houses of Congress. ‘Nightmare’ is the word that keeps reverberating in my brain.”

Biden Disinfo Czar Calls for Covert Social Media Editing

Nina Jankowicz, executive director of the Department of Homeland Security’s new Disinformation Governance Board, says she “will replace the crude and incendiary practices of banning social media users with a seamless covert editing process. As I see this process working, my office will create a ‘verified truth teller’ program where we will vet persons and select those who are fully in sync with the consensus of the right thinking segment of society. Those selected will be granted unimpeded access to all social media accounts on all the platforms and be authorized to alter the content to conform with the government’s approved message.”

Jankowicz characterized this as “the opposite of censorship. No one will be silenced, per se. There will still be posts with their names on them. Only offensive content will be altered. Animosities engendered by clashing opinions will be muted by a sea of amiable unanimity. Post after post will confirm each other in an unending chain. Every attempt to post incorrect ideas will be thwarted in a kind and gentle manner. No one will be vilified. Mutual praise and admiration will be the persistent ambiance everywhere on the web.”
