Fox News legal analyst: Alabama’s abortion law is a Trojan horse meant to destroy Roe v. Wade

Published

on

Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Thursday predicted that Alabama’s severe anti-abortion law will get taken up by the Supreme Court — and he said that it presented a once-in-a-generation opportunity for conservatives to roll back constitutional protections on the right to have an abortion.

During his appearance, Napolitano pointed to comments made by proponents of the Alabama legislation indicating that they hope their bill is a Trojan Horse aimed at getting the Supreme Court to reconsider the landmark 1973 ruling Roe v. Wade.

“It’s written for that purpose,” Napolitano explained. “There is a view that there is a pro-life majority in the Supreme Court and obviously a pro-life president. And if there is any time to dismantle Roe… the time is now.”

Napolitano predicted that overturning Roe wouldn’t lead to a nationwide abortion ban, however, and would simply kick the issue back to individual states.

“Even Justice Scalia, who believed abortion was murder, felt that the proper constitutional position was to leave it up to the states, because the constitution is silent on it,” he said.

Reports of the protests across the country are focusing on the violence, clashes and property damage caused by a small few rather than the peaceful protest of those rallying against injustice and the police standing in solidarity with them.

A few captured positive moments of cities where officers support the protests and believe Black lives do actually matter.

There were moments of protesters fist-bumping police, hugs with police, and in one incident in New York City over the weekend, one officer was separated from his unit. Protesters surrounded him with locked arms to protect him from those being violent. In Miami, Florida and Seattle, Washington, police joined protesters in kneeling.

Trump shows all the signs of being ‘rattled’ now that the White House is under siege from protesters: columnist

Published

on

In a column for the Atlantic, longtime political observer Peter Nicholas stated that Donald Trump is showing all the signs of a scared man as massive protests have broken out across the country over the murder of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minneapolis cops -- and angry Americans are taking their case all the way up to the White House gates.

As Nicholas wrote, "Presidents live within a protective cocoon built and continually fortified for one purpose: keeping them alive. But inside the White House compound these days, Donald Trump seems rattled by what’s transpiring outside the windows of his historic residence."
