Marchers in New York marked International Women's Day on Wednesday afternoon by chanting "Hey, hey, ho, ho, Donald Trump has got to go" while walking between two of the real estate mogul's signature properties. Some hoisted posters featuring coat hangers, a strong symbol for many women in the battle over abortion rights. Meanwhile, the most powerful millennial woman in the Trump inner circle tweeted her version of support. "Today, we celebrate women and are reminded of our collective voice and the powerful impact we have on our societies and economies," Ivanka Trump wrote. Related: Ivanka helped 'set the tone' for Trump's speech Her record on the most crucial of women's rights, though, is one of artful dodging. The landing page of Ivanka's eponymous website celebrated the day with the words "Be Bold for Change," written in pink, beige and red. The website gives no clue about what this "change" might be, but throughout his presidential campaign, Donald Trump made it pretty … [Read more...] about Does Ivanka Trump back or oppose abortion rights?

Summer travel disruption, flight cancellations and strikes were at the forefront of questions asked by readers during travel correspondent Simon Calder’s weekly ‘ Ask Me Anything ’ on Friday. The message of the day? Stay positive. Simon urged readers to be optimistic when booking and reminded them of their rights should their flights be cancelled. Let’s dig in. It seems easyJet are now cancelling some flights 20 days in advance. Do you have any insight into how end of August is looking ? Several million people booked on easyJet over the summer will be wishing, as I am, that the airline could finalise all its cancellations as soon as possible. As you know, the carrier promised more flights than it has the resources to deliver, especially to and from London Gatwick, and is now trimming the schedule by about 10 per cent. That means a significant number of people booked on July and August flights have been told, or will shortly learn, that their original flight is … [Read more...] about Travel: 8 questions on flight cancellations, strikes and your rights, answered by Simon Calder
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Sunday and called the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade “historic” and “fantastic,” emphasizing that “We’re going to protect so many unborn babies.” Pompeo told host Matthew Boyle that the justices who brought about the majority decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case “got the Constitution right.” “We had five folks stand up and say this is what the Constitution actually says. I give President Trump full credit for delivering on the promises that he made,” he continued, referring to the 45th President making good on his promises to appoint conservative justices to the highest court in the country. He later told Boyle, “ This is important for the Constitution, it’s really important for America. It’s important to protect the women who have had to suffer this horrific procedure where a baby is killed. But the work has just begun, right? We’re … [Read more...] about Exclusive – Mike Pompeo: ‘We’re Going to Protect so Many Unborn Babies’
Democrats are betting that anger over the reversal of Roe v. Wade will take down Republicans in the 2022 midterms . This is a plausible, if desperate , hope. The theory is that the “winning” side of such a long struggle will now be pacified, while the “losing” side is energized and outraged. And abortion rights—with some limits— remain broadly popular on a national scale . The political calculus over the right’s biggest victory in a half-century is so scrambled that even former President Donald Trump is reportedly worried about this . But Republicans have a secret weapon: Democrats’ penchant for progressive overreach . We are already seeing signs at multiple levels—among activists, elite celebrities, and politicians. It raises the question: Could there be a backlash against the backlash? Let’s start with the most serious: activist overreach. Since May’s leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion in the Dobbs case, pro-life crisis pregnancy centers … [Read more...] about Will Raging Liberals Cause an Anti-Democrat Backlash?
Students and faculty at Stanford are criticizing the university's medical school for a letter released in response to the United States Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade , a move that will result in restrictions on the procedure in many states across the country. Perhaps in response to the criticism, Stanford Medicine administrators later sent out an apparent quasi-apology statement Sunday night, saying they wished to add "additional perspective" to their earlier comments. The saga began hours after Friday's ruling, when Dr. Lloyd Minor — the dean of the university's school of medicine — sent a letter to the Stanford community that, according to critics, paid undue attention to the feelings of anti-abortion advocates and seemed to imply that the university's medical center would continue performing the procedure only because it's required under California law. "First, we want to acknowledge that this is a controversial issue," the letter said. "We know that … [Read more...] about Stanford Medicine put out a statement about Roe v. Wade.

Big Tech is increasingly making it impossible for Republican politicians to communicate with their constituents. In addition to social media censorship, leftists are trying to censor at the level of emails, text messages, and telecommunications infrastructure. The Republican party is getting quicker at responding to political bias from tech companies. After studies showing that 70 percent of GOP text messages go straight to spam folders compared to just eight percent of Democratic messages, Republicans have introduced the Political BIAS Emails Act . There are also a number of Republican bills targeting social media censorship, at both the federal and state level. But leftists are already moving on to a new target: telecommunications infrastructure. Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg (MANDEL NGAN/AFP/Getty Images) Telecom companies have already had an impact on national politics, with Verizon and AT&T briefly shutting down Trump’s campaign texts during the 2020 … [Read more...] about Republicans Condemn Verizon, ‘Big Telecom’ for Entertaining Democrat Censorship Demands
