As Right Wing Watch’s Peter Montgomery pointed out, over the years, Sekulow’s ACLJ has floated a number of “bogus right-wing charges”, including: “that secular humanists and ‘Satan’s legions’ are persecuting Christians in America; “that a Department of Homeland Security report on the threat of radicalization and domestic terrorism in the U.S. was ‘a blatant attack on conservative America’; “that gay people are out to ‘destroy’ families and communities”; “that President Obama tried to suppress the votes of Ohio military service members serving overseas”; “that Sharia law is a threat to the U.S. Constitution and Muslims cannot be loyal Americans because ‘devout Muslims cannot truthfully swear the oath to become citizens of the Unites States of America.'”

Law Professor Warns Trump Has Already Begun Unraveling Our Democracy

Alexandra Rosenmann's picture

Since assuming office in January, Donald Trump has been called a fascist, an authoritarian and a would-be autocrat, but what are the precise dangers his presidency poses?

“The problem with calling Trump a threat to democracy is that we have a really narrow idea of what it looks like when democracies fail,” explains Vox correspondent Carlos Maza. “We imagine democratic failure as being some spectacular event — a military coup or an illegal power grab or the declaration of martial law.”

He continues, “In a country like the U.S., the death of democracy is going to start off looking kind of normal. So normal you might not even notice it’s happening, until it’s too late.”

Last Wednesday, the Washington Post revealed that President Trump is being investigated for possible obstruction of justice by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Inspection- Do Not E-mail Me Again, Democratic Party, and STOP CALLING!

by Ken Carman

 There comes a time when the you realize the person who have been seeing isn’t taking the relationship seriously. Worse than that not only do they ignore your concerns, but they keep making promises, asking for money, and never fulfill those promises.
Inspection You really don’t want to break their heart, but sometimes you wonder if they have any heart left to break.
 This is how I feel about the Democratic Party.
 Democratic Party, you know I would never date the one I used to be with so many years ago. He’s become a bully and I swear he’s out to kill you. The party I left for him: my first, was useless. In the state where I lived I couldn’t even vote in a primary unless I joined some major party. Now my first party has been corrupted to the point they’re the bully’s puppy dog. The Conscience of a Conservative has turned into having no “conscience” at all.
 The second party, well I wasn’t with him very long. It became obvious he was becoming abusive. This should have been obvious for many years when he does anything to get in the way of those who disagree with him, no matter how dishonest, how cruel, how many lives are ruined. He treats those who dare to disagree with him like roaches he must exterminate. Still you let him take advantage of you over and over again. You ignore constant warnings from your friends. Read more

Women on Birth Control Could Be Barred from Working

A new Missouri bill would target abortion providers and sanction employment and housing discrimination against people who use birth control or have an abortion. Blessed be the fruit.

Yesterday, the Missouri House voted to pass SB 5, a bill imposing several highly burdensome and even more unnecessary restrictions on abortion providers; for example, the bill would require abortion providers to send fetal tissue samples to a pathologist within five days. While supporters of targeted restrictions of abortion providers (aka TRAP laws) claim they’re supporting women’s health, regulations like these often serve no medical purpose whatsoever. In reality, anti-choice legislators use them as a pretext to impose costs and red tape on abortion clinics, forcing them to close.
