In Barack Obama's America

Here's a couple of Internet ads that take on Barack Obama's opposition to the Illinois Born-Alive Infant Protection Act.

Beware, this second one has a brief shot of an aborted child -- for the record, you've probably seen far worse on those unfortunate posters that certain overzealous abortion opponents wield.

Frankly, I have a hard time thinking of a more morally depraved position than Obama's on the children each year who survive abortions. I think once-pro-life legal scholar and Obama supporter Douglas Kmeic has lost his mind in his continued defense of Obama over this issue. As Ramesh Ponnuru bluntly noted:

Let me try to clear up some of the confusions Kmiec perpetuates by way of a blunt example that a pro-life activist suggested to me. Without the born-alive legislation in the law, it would be legal for a doctor to take a pre-viable infant—one expected to live for only a few hours—and kill her by bringing a hammer down on her skull. Under the law, that behavior would be illegal. Obama argued that providing any legal protection to that infant would be dangerous and unconstitutional.

At worst, Obama's position is evil, at best, he is an absolutely amoral, political creature, who will do whatever he must to advance himself.


In a just world, SB 918 and its New York counterpart would make the Supreme Court* say: "well, we tried to let you keep shall issue, but you morons just couldn't help yourselves, so now constitutional carry is the law of the land".

*Hopefully it doesn't need to go to SCOTUS.

New talking points just dropped in WaPo -- if that's the excuse for the raid, how does the FBI also justify letting Clinton skate when she also had docs "classified at the highest classification level"?

The most dramatic consequences of government intervention occurred in Sri Lanka, where a 2021 fertilizer ban led to a massive reduction in yields, sparking starvation and an economic crisis that brought down the government in July.
