Montana abortion provider vandalized less than a month after moving into new building

Published

Police in Kalispell, Montana are investigating an apparent act of vandalism against a local abortion provider, only a month after it moved into its current location.

The Kalispell Flathead Beacon reported that a receptionist at All Families Healthcare reported the damage to police after arriving at the facility on Tuesday morning.

Physician assistant Susan Cahill, who manages the clinic, told the Beacon she found books and equipment “strewn about the building.” Police reported “extensive” vandalism to the premises but did not elaborate to the Beacon.

“I’m in shock and I’m angry,” Cahill was quoted as saying. “People are trying to stop me from doing something that I believe is a human right and is legal.”

The clinic is the only abortion provider in Montana’s Flathead Valley. Kalispell is about 193 miles away from the state capitol of Helena.

The Beacon reported that the front of the clinic’s former building was destroyed in an October 1994 attack with a firebomb, forcing it to close for five months. The culprit, Richard T. Andrews, was later convicted of attacks on seven abortion clinics in four states, including three in Montana.

Two captions read 'wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall' and 'oh, THAT is why it sounds so familiar!'"

Stop praising anti-Trump evangelicals: Their embrace of authoritarianism is a big part of the problem

Published

on

At this critical moment for American democracy our media landscape is doing a poor job in its coverage of conservative white evangelicals. Coverage of this relatively large segment of the population is characterized by, on the one hand, effusive praise for the slightest milquetoast criticism of Donald Trump, and on the other, by a periodic parade of nearly interchangeable unfounded predictions about how evangelical youth are going to change America’s most radically right-wing demographic for the better—any day now. In the words of the great sage Bullwinkle J. Moose, “This time for sure!”

Intel official who briefed lawmakers on latest Russian meddling targeted for ouster by Trump White House: CNN

During a discussion on the war on the intelligence community being waged by the Donald Trump's White House, CNN host Victor Blackwell stated that sources speaking with the network stated that the intel official who briefed lawmakers for both parties on new efforts by Russia to meddle in U.S. elections could be on the way out.

Speaking with contributor Lynn Sweet, Blackwell asked about the so-called "purge" being conducted by the White House.

"It sends the signal once again that President Trump is not a respecter of the United States intelligence services with the bigger issue that a permanent director has not been in that office since last summer when Dan Coates was forced out," Sweet explained. "This is a key position, subject to Senate confirmation and Trump hasn't seen fit to have a permanent director for months now."
