Following the Supreme Court 's controversial decision to overturn Roe v. Wade , which had guaranteed women's right to an abortion across the country, new polling shows Democrats are better positioned to hold on to Congress in November's midterms. Last Friday, the Court's conservative majority reversed decades of precedent with its controversial abortion ruling, eliminating a right that had been protected by federal law for nearly five decades under Roe . While women can still access abortion in a number of blue states, many conservative-led states moved rapidly to ban or severely restrict abortions. Meanwhile, some conservatives are calling for even greater restrictions, including pushing for a national ban on abortions or prosecuting women who travel across state lines to get the procedure. While Republicans are generally seen as likely to win back control of the House and possibly the Senate in November's elections, new polling suggests the tide could be … [Read more...] about Democrats’ chances of beating GOP for control of Congress after Roe ruling
Modern progressives assume moral and intellectual authority. Consequently, their supposedly superior ends naturally justify almost any means necessary to achieve them. Among the elite, the Democrats’ “blue-wall” states were once considered a testament to the wisdom of the Electoral College. When that wall crumbled in 2016 to Donald Trump, the Electoral College suddenly was blasted as a relic of our anti-democratic founders. The nine-person Supreme Court was once beloved. On issues like abortion, school prayer, same-sex marriage, pornography and Miranda rights, the Left cheered the Court as it made the law and ignored legislatures and presidents. Republican Court picks – Harry Blackmun, William Brennan, Anthony Kennedy, Sandra Day O’Connor, Lewis Powell, John Roberts, David Souter, John Paul Stevens, Potter Stewart and Earl Warren – would often flip leftward. How could they not be swayed by the greater brilliance of their liberal colleagues? From affirmative action to Roe … [Read more...] about VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: The Cry-Baby Leftist Mind
Almost two years after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, the smaller island of Vieques still does not have a hospital. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has less than three weeks to explain to Congress why the agency has no concrete plans to help rebuild the facility. The ultimatum comes after Democratic lawmakers sent a letter addressed to FEMA’s acting administrator Peter T. Gaynor on Wednesday, seeking answers as to why “U.S. citizens still cannot access comprehensive medical care” almost two years after the hospital was shuttered due to damage caused by Maria in 2017. In the letter, the members of Congress reference the case of a 64-year-old cancer patient who waited 32 straight hours — sleeping and eating in her car — to ensure she had a spot on the ferry that takes residents from the smaller island to the mainland to reach a doctor in the capital city. About 9,000 people live in Vieques and hundreds of people commute to the mainland by boat, which is … [Read more...] about The Puerto Rican island of Vieques still has no hospital.

close Video Texas is expanding border operations because fed inaction: Lt. Olivarez Lt. Chris Oliveras discusses Texas cracking down on criminals taking advantage of immigrants on ‘Your World With Neil Cavuto.’ NEW You can now listen to Fox News articles! To the detriment of border security, the Supreme Court ruled the Biden Administration did not exceed its authority when it repealed the MPP, commonly referred to as the "Remain in Mexico" policy. What is striking about this policy and others that the Biden administration has fought so hard to repeal is that they always take an aggressive stance in favor of illegal border crossers. Their loyalty is always on the wrong side of an immigration issue. Look no further than President Joe Biden’s recent angry, aggressive, unfounded, and false criminal allegations against Border Patrol agents. After his allegations were proven false, he never retracted them or apologized to the agents whose … [Read more...] about Supreme Court’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ ruling will lead to chaos and death
