This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 3 WASHINGTON - Moments before the Senate took a doomed vote on abortion rights Wednesday, it fell to Sen. Patty Murray - the highest-ranking Democratic woman and the party's pre-eminent leader on health care - to sound a rallying cry against those seeking to reverse Roe v. Wade. "To everyone who is scared, everyone who is furious, know this: They have some big roadblocks in their way - me, Senate Democrats, House Democrats, and millions of patients across this country who are going to stand up and speak out," she said. The speech sparked applause from spectators inside the chamber, who included dozens of House Democratic women who had marched across the Capitol to protest Roe's potential end at the hands of a conservative Supreme Court - a possibility that was rendered stark this month by the leak of a draft opinion summarily overturning the constitutional right to abortion. It was … [Read more...] about After decades defending abortion rights, Patty Murray readies for offense

Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts wants to ban abortion in his state, and he wants that ban to apply to victims of rape.

After Sheila Kuehl announced she was not seeking reelection to the L.A. County Board of Supervisors, the political maneuvering began. The jockeying for the open seat intensified after district lines were redrawn in December in a once-in-a-decade process, bringing some conservative-leaning parts of the San Fernando Valley into Kuehl’s 3rd District. That set the stage for Bob Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys) and Henry Stern (D-Malibu), state senators who represent parts of the Valley, to mount campaigns. They are running against West Hollywood City Council Member Lindsey Horvath, who is backed by Kuehl, and three other candidates in a race where homelessness and crime have emerged as defining issues before the June 7 primary. The supervisors are sometimes referred to as the “five little kings” because of their unglamorous but powerful jobs controlling an annual budget of nearly $39 billion in a county of more than 10 million people .

As a democratic process, the presidential polls last May 9 set some records that will long be remembered in terms, among others, of the speed in the transmission of the digitized election results, of margins of victory for the victorious, and of the resurgence of voluntarism for the vanquished. TO BEGIN WITH, THE VOTER TURNOUT WAS 83.77 PERCENT, a truly remarkable feat amid a pandemic. Moreover, the transparency servers of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) received over 95 percent of the digitized results from the vote-counting machines (VCMs) on the early morning of May 10 after the polling precincts closed at 7 p.m. on Election Day, a period of less than 12 hours, thereby sealing the massive mandate of Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. (BBM) and “Inday” Sara Duterte. These two achievements (voter turnout and early election results) are much better than those of the last presidential elections in the United States in which the nationwide voter turnout was only about 66 percent, … [Read more...] about An election to remember
I remember the scene vividly: in the living room of our old house in Caloocan, my aunt gifts me my first Bible in celebration of my first attendance in church. I’m seven years old, and I’m still learning how to read. I could make out sounds, and I had a growing vocabulary of words outside of “Mama” and “Papa.” Everyone agreed there was no better way to train me in reading but through stories from the King James Bible itself. Through the Bible, my parents extolled the virtues that pleased God: thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not kill. Though my parents never held any important position in the church, they grew in my young mind as exemplars of goodness. What my father said was law, and there was no better virtue than to do and say the things that pleased my mother. But time wears away everything, and sometimes that includes the precious sheen on the idealized images of our parents we erected in our minds as kids. The recent elections have been proof of that. Ferdinand “Bongbong” … [Read more...] about Father, you have sinned

Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich discusses why there isn't more of an interest in who leaked the Supreme Court draft opinion on 'One Nation.' NEW You can now listen to Fox News articles! The Supreme Court will issue a batch of opinions on an unknown number of cases Monday, but the highly-anticipated decision that could determine the fate of abortion protections is likely weeks away, according to judicial experts. The decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization — which deals with abortion precedents set decades ago in the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision — is highly complex and perhaps the most controversial action the court will take this year. Despite the country's eagerness to have a resolution, the court may need more time to conclude its process. "Typically, more controversial cases are decided the last day of the term.

This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 6 WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden urged unity Sunday to address the “hate that remains a stain on the soul of America” after a deadly mass shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, while state officials pleaded for federal action to end the ”uniquely American phenomenon” of mass shootings. Addressing an annual law enforcement ceremony at the U.S. Capitol, Biden said he and his wife, Jill, pray for those who were shot “by a lone gunman, armed with weapons of war and hate-filled soul,” and their families. Authorities say a white 18-year-old male in military gear opened fire on shoppers and workers at the supermarket on Saturday, killing 10 people, including a retired Buffalo police officer, and wounding three others. Most of the victims were Black. Law enforcement officials said Sunday that the gunman had researched the local demographics while looking for … [Read more...] about Biden urges unity to stem racial hate after Buffalo shooting
LANDSLIDE VICTOR Bongbong Marcos —CONTRIBUTED PHOTOS The 2022 Philippine presidential election is the most divisive national election in recent years. It was fueled by vicious mudslinging on top of clarity of message platforms being drowned by Facebook memes and icons; bedazzling TikTok videos; Instagram images and one-liners that infuriate or make one happy depending on whose side one is with. Not to mention the heated discussions exchanged in private Viber chat groups and text messages—all these pretty much described the campaign period. Under scrutiny among the Philippines’ world trading partners are the Filipinos’ political maturity and respect for law and order, a key element of a nation’s stability and opportunity for gainful business. Regardless of outcome, the Filipino electorate and spectrum of income classes and generations must think beyond themselves and their opinion and accept the results of the election. In this race to Malacanang, these are some of the political … [Read more...] about Political marketing lessons from the 2022 presidential race
