Internet explodes in fury as Alabama governor signs near-total ban on abortion

Published

Americans are outraged, angry, upset, and scared now that Alabama Republican Governor Kay Ivey has just signed into law a bill banning all abortions, except if the mother’s life is threatened by her pregnancy.

Many are expressing anger and feelings of betrayal, noting Republicans called those who opposed President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court picks “hysterical,” while insisting that Roe v. Wade was settled law and could never be challenged or overturned.

The Alabama bill was designed by religious extremists to overturn Roe v. Wade. Now that it has been signed in to law it will be challenged, along with other extreme abortion bans in other states. They will get to the Supreme Court, and many experts believe the Trump-formed Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade.

On social media, many are expressing anger at those who put Donald Trump in the Oval Office, especially Americans who chose to vote third party, for Jill Stein or Gary Johnson as a protest vote. Some are blaming what right now feels like the inevitable overturn of a woman’s right to choose on those who enabled and motivated protest votes, including actress Susan Sarandon.

Trending are terms including #AlabamaAbortionBanKay Ivey#WomensRightsAreHumanRights#YouKnowMe#AbortionRights, and Pat Robertson – all related to the Alabama abortion ban.

Published

on

European ambassador Gordon Sondland's impeachment testimony sent shock waves through Washington D.C. on Wednesday -- but they seemingly weren't felt by Republican senators.

Per CNN's Michael Warren, multiple GOP senators said on Wednesday that they were not watching Sondland's testimony, which directly implicated President Donald Trump in a quid-pro-quo scheme with Ukraine.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), for example, said that he "took my kid to school" instead of watching Sondland, while Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) said he was busy "chairing my own hearing."

Ken Starr says ‘it’s over’ for Trump: Democrats know ‘the president in fact committed the crime of bribery’

Published

Former independent prosecutor Ken Starr suggested on Wednesday that President Donald Trump impeachment could now be a sure thing.

Following the testimony of European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland, Fox News host Bret Baier called the witness "very damning" for Trump -- and Starr agreed.

"We've gotten close to the president," Starr said of Sondland's testimony. "The president may have covered himself by saying no quid pro quo, the record is muddled. So we have Gordon Sondland's understanding. It doesn't look good for the president substantively."

Starr compared the current process to the articles of impeachment that were drafted against President Richard Nixon.
