Abortion Congress GOP WTF?!

Marjorie Taylor Greene Claims She’s Worried Abortion Will Produce ‘Genocide In The Black Population’

According to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) — aka the “Jewish space laser” nut — the reason she’s being such an asshole on a daily basis as a member of Congress is because she wants to eliminate all abortions in the United States.

Appearing on Real America’s Voice, Greene tried to explain away her verbal attack on her Democratic colleagues on the steps of the Capitol last Friday by suggesting that her vitriol had been about abortion:

“I said, ‘Are you happy you passed a bill that babies can be slaughtered up until the day of birth?’ There were so many Democrats and they have their signs: ‘Build Back Better Women.’ How on Earth is it making women better by creating a law where they can kill a baby in their womb even though the baby is about to be born? How are we building back better women when we’re turning men into women?”

She continued:

“And so I just started speaking out. Most of them weren’t saying anything to me but it was Debbie Dingell — like a dingleberry — she started fussing at me, telling me I needed to be civil to my colleagues and act the way I would act going to church.”

Of course, it’s highly unlikely that Greene even goes to church. And if she does, she certainly hasn’t learned anything about the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

But it was what Greene said next that proved her blatant hypocrisy and exposed her words as lies:

“They believe that life is so important that they are willing to shut down our economy, force children to stay home from school so no one dies from Covid. All of them voted for this bill that is actually producing genocide in the black population because they put Planned Parenthood mostly in these black-dominated neighborhoods and, you know, they’re just pushing abortion and birth control.

“When we’re passing bills like that, no one in here believes in God. We’re fighting against this and I refuse to be quiet anymore. It’s not go-along and get-along.”

Does Marjorie Taylor Greene expect us to believe that she gives a diddly damn about black people in the United States? She wanted to start a caucus to advocate for the “Anglo-Saxon political tradition,” as CNN reported in April:

Punchbowl News obtained a flier promoting the new caucus, which calls for a “common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions” and pushes a series of conspiracy theories about election integrity. The flier also outlined a nativist argument warning that “mass immigration” poses a threat to “the long-term existential future of America as a unique country with a unique culture and a unique identity.”

Does it sound like Greene cares about black people? Of course she doesn’t. She’s a racist like the vast majority of the GOP. She just wants an issue she can run on in 2022 when she tries to get reelected.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is a cancer on the Congress and the country. Let’s hope she gets beaten in the midterm elections.

Trump Takes Credit For Texas Anti-Abortion Law And Sounds Like He Believes He’s Still POTUS

Now that the Supreme Court is finally ruling the way he wants them to, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump is patting himself on the back so hard it’s a wonder he hasn’t dislocated his shoulder.

Speaking with Sharyl Attkisson of right-wing Sinclair Broadcasting, Trump beamed with pride as he took credit for the Supreme Court refusing to strike down the restrictive anti-abortion law that went into effect in Texas this week, remarking:

“We do have a Supreme Court that’s a lot different than it was. Before it was acting very strangely and I think probably not in the interest of our country.”

Keep in mind this is the very same Supreme Court that Trump chided with derision when they refused to take up any of the bogus election lawsuits filed by him and his allies when it became clear he had been badly beaten by President Joe Biden, tweeting in December of last year:

“This is a great and disgraceful miscarriage of justice. The people of the United States were cheated, and our Country disgraced. Never even given our day in Court!”

A month later, the loser former president was booted off Twitter permanently for his endless lies and conspiracy theories about the election.

While he was at it, Trump also told Attkisson that he was “studying” the high court’s ruling on the Texas abortion law:

“The ruling was very complex and also probably temporary. I think other things will happen and that will be the big deal and the big picture. So we’ll see what will happen. But we’re studying the ruling and we’re studying also what they’ve done in Texas.

“We’ll be announcing something over the next week or two weeks.”

Yeah, a guy who hates to read so much that his intelligence briefings had to be delivered with little more than charts and photos is going to be “studying” a Supreme Court ruling.

Be sure and catch the crap about “announcing” something over the next few weeks. This fool still thinks he’s president! Did he not get the memo? Does he think the White House has been moved to Florida and he’s still running the country? If so, it’s going to come as one hell of a surprise when he tries to board Air Force One and what’s waiting for him is one of his ancient jets with his name emblazoned on it. Provided, of course, he hasn’t had to sell all his planes to pay the loans that are coming due soon.

As usual, everything is all about Donald. That’s the way the world looks when you’re a delusional, addled old man who could well wind up spending the rest of his life in prison.

Tech Writer Believes She’s Found A Foolproof Way To Shut Down Texas’ Abortion Snitch Website

One of the most disgusting facets of the new Texas anti-abortion law is that it includes a reward of up to $10,000 to anyone who snitches on a woman who is attempting to get an abortion in the state.

Texas Right to Life has set up a website which allows people to report women who might be in violation of the new law, but a tech writer believes she’s found a way to get the website taken down once and for all.

Tech journalist Shoshana Wodinsky penned an article for Gizmodo in which she suggests the best way to have the Texas Right to Life website removed from the internet is by reporting it to the registrar of the domain name:

“In this case, the registrar is GoDaddy — a company that’s historically known for being kind of terrible all around, but also one with a slew of rules for what its sites can be used for. Among the rules are that sites cannot ‘collect or harvest’ information about people without their consent, or do anything that ‘violates the privacy or publicity rights of another User or any other person or entity, or breaches any duty of confidentiality that you owe to another User or any other person or entity.'”

Reporting the medical procedures of other people would certainly be a violation of GoDaddy’s rules, and that means there’s a way to battle this problem with the power of the internet, Wodinsky writes:

“GoDaddy has its own specific tipline set up for users to reach when they see a site falling afoul of the company’s privacy rules: privacy@godaddy.com. People can also file out an abuse report with the platform, and let GoDaddy know that they’ve come across ‘content that displays personal information.’ While the examples that GoDaddy gives in the form are sites listing people’s social security or credit card numbers, the Texas tipline is a pretty clear privacy violation of a different sort.”

In other words, it’s up to us to flood GoDaddy with reports regarding the Texas abortion snitch tipline. We have internet access and that’s really all that’s required to make a difference in this case.

Granted, we can’t personally repeal the Texas anti-abortion law, but we can damn sure give its enablers some major headaches along the way.

Ladies and gentlemen: Time to grab our computers and phones and make a difference. We can do this!

Jen Psaki Schools Male Reporter On ‘Choices’ After He Asks Absurd Question About Abortion

Less than 24 hours after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to strike down a restrictive Texas law which forbids nearly 85% of all abortions in the state, the Biden administration made it clear it will not sit by and allow women across the United States to be denied a right they are guaranteed under Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision handed down in 1973 which established that states may not seek to control a woman’s reproductive freedom.

President Joe Biden had this to say Thursday afternoon in an official statement:

“It unleashes unconstitutional chaos and empowers self-anointed enforcers to have devastating impacts,” Biden, a Democrat, said in a statement directing federal agencies to act to protect the right to abortion enshrined in the high court’s landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. “Complete strangers will now be empowered to inject themselves in the most private and personal health decisions faced by women.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki also commented on the ruling by the high court, noting:

“The effort and the focus of the federal government is to look for every resource, every level at our disposal to ensure that women in Texas have the ability to seek healthcare.”

That led Owen Jensen, the White House correspondent for EWNT — The Eternal Word Television Network — to ask:

“Why does the president support abortion when his own Catholic faith teaches abortion is morally wrong?”

Without a moment of hesitation, Psaki expertly swatted down Wilson by telling him:

“He believes that it is a woman’s right, a woman’s body, her choice. He believes it is up to a woman to make those decisions and make those decisions with her doctor. I know you have never faced those choices nor have you been pregnant. But for women out there who have faced those choices, this is an incredibly difficult thing in the president believes that their rights should be respected.”

Boom! Game, set, and match, Jen Psaki.

It shouldn’t be required to teach Americans that church and state are supposed to be kept separate under our form of government. It’s enshrined in the damn Constitution! As Thomas Jefferson himself once wrote:

“Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burned, tortured, fined and imprisoned. What has been the effect of this coercion? To make one half the world fools and the other half hypocrites; to support roguery and error all over the earth.”

The Texas attack on a woman’s right to choose will backfire on the state and on Republicans nationally. It may well hand the 2022 election to Democrats at the local, state, and national level.

When it comes to the right to choose, we should leave those decisions to the women who have to make them.

Reproductive RIghts in America Right Wing Morons WTF?!

Tennessee Legislator Says Rape And Incest Are ‘Not Verifiable’

Take a good look at this photo. This is Tennessee state Representative Sheila Butt, and she is the face of total ignorance in the Volunteer State.

On Tuesday, Ms. Butt (more on that name in a bit) decided to offer a motion to table an amendment which would have exempted victims of rape and incest from restrictions on having an abortion because, this rocket scientist claimed, rape and incest are “not verifiable.”

Yeah, I know. My jaw hit the ground on that one, too. If rape and incest can’t be verified, then how could anyone ever be charged with and found guilty of these crimes? Yet people are rightly convicted each and every day in this country, even in Tennessee.

Ms. Butt’s ignorance came to the fore during a discussion of a bill that would require women to wait 48 hours and receive counseling before they can get an abortion. Another amendment was offered that would have allowed a doctor to exempt patients from the waiting period for mental health reasons. Ms. Butt tabled the amendment and then stated:

“Putting this psychological harm bypass into the bill is really a loophole for the abortion industry. It allows someone who is going to profit from abortion to get the waiting period waived.”

Is it just me, or is this woman so extreme and so clueless that it makes your teeth hurt?


When the amendment came up to allow rape and incest victims to not be forced to endure the 48 hour wait time, Butt remarked:

“This amendment appears political. Because we understand in most instances, this is not verifiable. Let’s make sure that these women have the information and the understanding to act.”

You don’t think a woman knows when she has become pregnant through rape or incest, Ms. Butt? Just because you’re stupid as the day is long doesn’t mean everyone is the same. As for your suggestion of politics being a part of it, what in the world would you call your heartless actions?

The amendments were eventually tabled and the bill containing the new restrictions on a woman’s right to choose passed the state House by a vote of 79-18. It now goes to the Senate where is it also expected to pass. GOP Governor Bill Haslam has said he will sign the bill.

Now let me get back to the name of this ignorant and uncaring woman, Sheila Butt. It’s not often in this world that someone is so appropriately named based on their actions. However, Sheila, you are a 100 percent certified Butt.

And I mean that sincerely.
