The Left is all tied up in knots over Trump’s SCOTUS pick announcement

It's panic time for the Left. Tonight, President Trump is expected to announce his Supreme Court nominee to replace retiring justice Anthony Kennedy. But the Left doesn't care what any potential nominee thinks about the Constitution. They're only obsessed with one thing – whether one of these potential justices will be the deciding vote in overturning Roe v. Wade, the holy grail of landmark Supreme Court cases for the Left.

In the always-entertaining Washington Post Opinion section yesterday, Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights, wrote a piece titled: "Roe isn't just about women's rights. It's about everyone's personal liberty."

Northup's first lie is front and center in her title – "it's about everyone's personal liberty" – well, everyone's except the unborn baby's.

She writes:

"Given the president's promise to appoint justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade, it's widely understood that his nominee will pose a clear danger to women's reproductive rights. What most don't realize is that everyone's personal-liberty rights are on the line."

Oh, okay. So, now the Left is worried about "personal-liberty rights," but they weren't worried about that in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, and not when it comes to the Second Amendment right to bear arms, and not even with something like the Obamacare individual mandate. They simply don't see personal-liberty rights at stake in those instances.

Northup continues:

"That line [that the Supreme Court drew to previous landmark decisions] led to the conclusion, enshrined in Roe and elaborated on in Casey, that liberty cannot exist if we are not free to make decisions about our lives, bodies and health free from government interference."

The thing is, if the Left was actually as concerned as Nancy Northup seems to be about personal-liberty rights, conservatives could more often be in lock-step with the Left. But her argument about Roe v. Wade being the linchpin of our personal-liberty rights misses something that is glaringly obvious. The pro-life position says, yes, absolutely, bring on the personal-liberty rights, but if we believe to our core in those rights, then they must be extended to that person growing in the womb. It's completely hypocritical to demand those rights for yourself and in the same breath deny them to a person in the womb that is just months from joining the world.

Progressives like Northup think they own the patent on empathy. Yet, they are apparently incapable of placing themselves in the shoes of the unborn.

Progressives like Northup think they own the patent on empathy. Yet, they are apparently incapable of placing themselves in the shoes of the unborn. If Nancy Northup was in the womb right now, just 32 weeks from birth, would she not want the personal-liberty rights she's talking about to be preserved for her? All men [and women] are created equal… endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights… If you honestly believe that, and you can extrapolate that concept to slavery and see it as evil, or to the Holocaust and see that as evil, how can you not see that it is wrong to deny those rights to the unborn, and even worse, to deny those rights by killing that person in the womb?

Northup says:

"You can have either the president's promise about overturning Roe or the Constitution's promise of a realm of personal liberty. You can't have both."

Actually, you can. The Left makes it sound so easy to overturn Roe v. Wade, but it wouldn't be, and there's no guarantee that it will happen even with a supposed conservative majority. Even if it was overturned, states would still decide on their own abortion law – some might ban it, many would still allow it. Overturning Roe v. Wade would be an anti-murder decision, not the restriction on personal liberty that terrifies the Left.

You can have both overturning Roe and the Constitution's promise of a realm of personal liberty. First, because abortion would still be available in many parts of the country, it's just that killing your child might be a little more inconvenient. Second, overturning Roe would actually extend that realm of personal-liberty rights to more Americans as hundreds of thousands of babies every year would now get to live.

Overturning Roe would not be the restrictive, Handmaid's Tale scenario that the Left is in a panic over. It would actually break the padlocks on some of the cattle cars of the endless Holocaust trains that we call abortion.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
