Ivanka Trump Attended a Critical Meeting That Led to Supreme Court Draft Overturning Roe v. Wade

Mod: Of course she did. And she kept her mouth shut about it as well.

Ivanka Trump Attended a Critical Meeting That Led to Supreme Court Draft Overturning Roe v. Wade (Political Flare link): In a surprise to absolutely no one, it turns out that White House interloper Ivanka Trump was present for a meeting that ultimately led to the Supreme Court decision to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade opinion that made abortion legal.

A new report in the Washington Post says that former Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was worried about the Supreme Court after Trump’s 2016 election victory, presumably because Trump had previously been so publicly pro-choice.

He soon called Donald McGahn, campaign counsel to the president-elect, who was slated to become the top White House lawyer. A week later, Leonard Leo, the head of the conservative Federalist Society and a McConnell ally, was sitting with the president-elect and his advisers in Trump Tower in New York with a list of six potential conservative nominees alphabetically typed onto a piece of personalized stationary, according to people familiar with the meeting, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to reveal internal discussions. 

As incoming chief of staff Reince Priebus and Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, came in and out of the room, Leo laid out a road map for Trump on the federal court system, potentially transforming the foundational understanding of rights in America.

The paper said that it was a moment that anti-abortion activists had dreamed about for decades: The opportunity to actually undo the decision that handed American women the right to physical self-determination.

The Post reported that at a lunch with more than a dozen other people at the law firm Jones Day, “Trump said he wanted to make the Supreme Court a campaign priority.” 

From there it was easy for the Federalist Society chief to name any number of potential justices for Trump to nominate — which he eventually did, successfully getting Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett seated on the Supreme Court. All three of those nominees swore before Congress that they would not vote to overturn Roe v Wade. So much for that idea.

  2. Communist-china yaps like a old toothless dog, keep your nose back inside your own communist country's boarders.
    China warns US not to provoke confrontation as it pushes to boost ties with Southeast Asia, 2022.

    According to the new regional maritime initiatives, the US Coast Guard will deploy assets and assign additional personnel to the Indo-Pacific for maritime training and capacity-building, including a coast guard attache at the US mission to Asean.

    It also includes new initiatives to help Asean countries counter illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing, and the US Coast Guard will deploy a cutter to Southeast Asia and Oceania for security cooperation, according to the announcement.

    The maritime cooperation is part of US efforts to advance its position in the wider geopolitical competition with China in the Indo-Pacific region, which ranges from clean energy infrastructure and education partnerships, to global health.

  3. The revival of a forgotten American fruit, 2022.

    Across large swaths of North America, an ancient fruit is growing wild but largely forgotten. However, a community of foodies, farmers and scientists is eagerly trying to change that.

    "Where, oh where, is pretty little Suzie? Where, oh where, is pretty little Suzie? Where, oh where, is pretty little Suzie?" asks the traditional folk song. "Way down yonder in the pawpaw patch."

    Suzie knows more about pawpaws than most, it seems. North America's largest native edible fruit grows wild in 26 US states, including Texas, Ohio, West Virginia, New York and Michigan and all the way up to Ontario, Canada. Yet most people have never heard of it.

  4. Men DO NOT have the right to tell a woman what to do with her body.
    Where Americans Stand On Abortion, In 5 Charts, 2022.

    Abortion is a thorny issue in American life. It’s not something people like to talk about, and it’s not something people know that much about. Because of that, it’s hard to understand how Americans really think about abortion and how many Americans would react if Roe were overturned.

    There is one point, though, in this debate that is clear: The majority of Americans don’t want to overturn Roe. How polls ask about support varies, but the vast majority of respondents — somewhere between 85 and 90 percent, according to most polls — think abortion should be legal in at least some circumstances.

    With the U.S. Supreme Court poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, Illinois is preparing for a massive rise in out-of-state patients traveling here to terminate a pregnancy. If Roe were to crumble, providers have predicted an additional 14,000 patients each year will cross state lines to terminate pregnancies in southern Illinois.

    Texas Calls for Power Conservation After Six Generators Fail, 2022.

    On Thursday, the Public Utility Commission of Texas expressed concern that generators haven’t had enough time to perform seasonal maintenance ahead of summer. The risk: summertime maintenance amid stronger heat can lead to supply shortages and potentially rolling blackouts.

    The spring maintenance season typically ends in late May, but outages this year will likely slip into the first half of June, said Michele Richmond, executive director of Texas Competitive Power Advocates, a generator industry group.

    "Some used (the incident) to say what kind of country we live in (...) that there was no authority, how could the Army have been humiliated this way," said President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in a regular morning news conference.

    Widespread violence has wracked Mexico under Lopez Obrador, who took office in late 2018 pledging to pacify the country with a less confrontational approach to dealing with organized crime.

    Louisiana state troopers charged in beating of Black man, 2020.

    The misdemeanor simple battery charges in the 2020 arrest of Antonio Harris come amid mounting scrutiny of the state’s premier law enforcement agency over allegations of excessive force — particularly against Black people — and an institutional instinct to cover it up.

    Jacob Brown, Dakota DeMoss and George “Kam” Harper, who are white, were seen on body-camera video piling onto Harris following a high-speed chase that ended next to a cornfield in rural Franklin Parish, kneeing, slapping and punching him even though he had surrendered face down with his arms and legs splayed.

  11. Journalists identify Russian soldier who bragged to his wife about killing civilians

    Citing SBU sources, Ukrainian news outlet Ukrayinska Pravda reported that the Russian soldier in question is Dmitriy Gennadiyevich Ivanov, born in 1995. According to his social media accounts, he lives in Kupsola, in Russia’s Mari El Republic. On his VKotankte (Russian social media network) page, Ivanov styles himself as Dmitriy Tumanov. The uniform he can be seen wearing in some photos suggests he graduated from the Kazan Tank Command Higher School.

    The investigation has identified Anastasia Korotkova as the woman Ivanov was speaking with in the SBU’s intercept. Her VKontakte page has photos of hers and Ivanov’s 2020 wedding.

    Russian associate threatens Finland and Sweden with a nuclear strike, 2022.

    Recently, the Russian authorities and propagandists have been increasingly talking about nuclear war.

    For example, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev said that the pumping of weapons by NATO countries into Ukraine increases the possibility of transition to a fully fledged nuclear war.

    According to the head of US National Intelligence, Avril Gaines, Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready to use tactical nuclear weapons against Ukraine, if the defeat of his troops in Ukraine becomes impossible to hide.

    According to the Financial Times Western governments already doubt Russia's readiness for nuclear escalation, and therefore have accelerated the supply of heavy weapons to Ukraine.

    Exclusive-Turkey 'not closing door' to Sweden, Finland NATO entry, Erdogan advisor says, 2022.

    Kalin said the militant Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) - designated a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union - was fund-raising and recruiting in Europe and its presence is "strong and open and acknowledged" in Sweden in particular.

    "What needs to be done is clear: they have to stop allowing PKK outlets, activities, organizations, individuals and other types of presence to...exist in those countries," Kalin said.

    "NATO membership is always a process. We will see how things go. But this is the first point that we want to bring to the attention of all the allies as well as to Swedish authorities," he added. "Of course, we want to have a discussion, a negotiation with Swedish counterparts."

  17. Russian military leaders ‘sacked and arrested’ amid heavy battlefield losses, 2022.

    Russian armed forces have suffered several major setbacks in their war, failing to take Kyiv early on and enduring heavy losses – both in lives and equipment.

    In the wake of their failure to seize the capital, Russian forces pulled back and regrouped – and switched their focus to Ukraine's eastern Donbas, a region where Moscow-backed separatists have fought Ukrainian troops for eight years.

    But Russia's advance there has been slow, too, and Western officials say Russia has not managed to take any cities.

  18. Here is what stupid communist-republicans do in their spare time of doing nothing and trying to bring down a legally elected administration, 2022.
    Seventeen states sue EPA for letting California set vehicle standards, 2022.

    Seventeen Republican state attorneys general on Friday announced a lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for allowing California to set its own vehicle emissions standards.

    The lawsuit alleges EPA Administrator Michael Regan violated the Constitution’s doctrine of equal sovereignty by allowing California an exemption from the Clean Air Act, which the Golden State used to impose more stringent emissions limits than the nationwide limit.

    “The Act simply leaves California with a slice of its sovereign authority that Congress withdraws from every other state,” West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R) said in a statement. “The EPA cannot selectively waive the Act’s preemption for California alone because that favoritism violates the states’ equal sovereignty.”

  19. Stupid forkers, they should all get FIVE YEARS IN PRISON AT HARD LABOR.
    Accused Capitol rioters are talking themselves into deeper trouble at hearings and trials related to January 6, 2021.

    "I wanted to go to trial, but the prosecutor said if I didn't go to trial they would put a felony on me, so I think this is probably the better route. I believe I'm innocent."

    The comment blew up his plea agreement hearing almost as soon as it began. Gionet left the virtual hearing with a trial date in 2023 and the possibility of facing stiffer charges, but with 60 days to reconsider taking the plea deal from prosecutors.

    It was just the latest instance of an accused Capitol rioter speaking up in a federal courtroom, perhaps to the detriment of his own legal defense.
