POLITICS 07/27/2018 02:33 pm ET Reversing Roe would not make abortion illegal everywhere at once, but states — or even Congress — could ban or further restrict it. Lisa Belkin Brandishing a wire coat hanger, New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon took the podium at a rally against the nomination of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court earlier this month. Kavanaugh is thought to satisfy Donald Trump’s pledge to appoint justices who will vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. Nixon’s voice shook as she predicted that a newly conservative court would take the country back to a time when women — including her own mother — resorted to self-administered abortions with, yes, coat hangers, or to illegal and unlicensed practitioners to end their pregnancies. “We must never, ever, ever, go back to a time when any woman feels she has to make this kind of a choice,” she said, raising the hanger high. “And this is why we … [Read more...] about What Would The World Be Like Without Roe v.

TEL AVIV – The editor of a major Arabic-language paper has urged the Arab world to stop clinging to a past that no longer exists and start learning from Europe, which gave up on violence and war in favor of peace and modernity. In an article titled “Rescue Your Descendants, Don’t Avenge Your Ancestors” in the Saudi London-based daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, the paper’s editor-in-chief Ghassan Charbel asks why there exists no Arab city with a robust economy, modern infrastructure, and good education.Charbel tells young Arabs that army generals are no longer the ones determining the future of a nation.

He continues by chiding Arabs for not realizing that they too are part of a global village. Refusing to integrate into that … [Read more...] about Saudi Editor to Arab World: Be Like Europe, Stop Living in Past
President Donald Trump's breaking off of Taliban talks amid a secret Camp David invite shows he treats "foreign policy like it's some kind of game show," according to Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., a Democratic presidential primary candidate. "The whole thing doesn't quite make sense to me," Klobuchar told CNN's State of the Union." "And it's just another example of the President treating foreign policy like it's some kind of game show." Klobuchar, who is a longshot for the Democratic presidential nomination behind front-runners Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Peter Buttigieg, also ripped the president for leaving the U.S. in a "worse place on the world stage." "He loves showmanship," Klobuchar told host Jake Tapper. "He wants to have that moment, but then all the details aren't done and then we end up in a worse place on the world stage than we were before." In going up against President … [Read more...] about Sen. Klobuchar: Trump Treats Peace Talks ‘Like Game Show’
