HUGE: 5th Circuit Court Affirms Texas Abortion Ban During Coronavirus Pandemic

A big league victory for sanity.

Published

The 5th Circuit Court has issued a decision allowing the state of Texas to ban elective abortions during the coronavirus pandemic, as medical supplies are in high demand to treat victims of the illness.

The panel made the ruling by a 2-1 margin on Tuesday. The majority cited “the escalating spread of COVID-19, and the state’s critical interest in protecting the public health” in making their decision.

Judges Stuart Kyle Duncan, a Trump appointee, and Jennifer Elrod, an appointee of George W. Bush, made up the majority while Judge James Dennis, a Clinton appointee, dissented with the ruling.

“That settled rule allows the state to restrict, for example, one’s right to peaceably assemble, to publicly worship, to travel, and even to leave one’s home,” the majority wrote. “The right to abortion is no exception.”

The panel also determined that the lower court erred when they refused to apply the Supreme Court’s test to determine the constitutionality of abortion restrictions. The SCOTUS test pertains to the legal review of weighing the burden on a woman’s access to abortion services against the medical benefits of the restrictions on abortion.

The majority ultimately determined that the lower court “failed to balance (the Texas restriction’s) temporary burdens on abortion against its benefits in thwarting a public health crisis.”

“The bottom line is this: when faced with a society-threatening epidemic, a state may implement emergency measures that curtail constitutional rights so long as the measures have at least some “real or substantial relation” to the public health crisis,” Judge Duncan and Judge Elrod wrote in their majority opinion.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a guidance last month declaring that all abortions “not medically necessary to preserve the life or health” of the woman would be considered a “non-essential” medical service throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Doctors who refuse to comply and murder babies in the womb despite the order are subject to “penalties of up to $1,000 or 180 days of jail time.”

The Democrat on the panel is dismayed with the opinion of the majority and would have preferred to keep the baby-mutilating industry going in Texas while coronavirus poses a serious threat to public safety.

“In a time where panic and fear already consume our daily lives, the majority’s opinion inflicts further panic and fear on women in Texas by depriving them, without justification, of their constitutional rights, exposing them to the risks of continuing an unwanted pregnancy, as well as the risks of travelling to other states in search of time-sensitive medical care,” Dennis wrote.

Because of this ruling, Texas is permitted to make common-sense decisions to conserve medical supplies during an unprecedented crisis.

‘F**k the Blue’: Pro-Trump Patriots Turn on Cops Protecting ANTIFA in Oregon

Cops can be their own worst enemies sometimes.

Published

A group of Trump supporters chanted “f**k the blue” and stomped on thin blue line flags in Oregon after the cops protected ANTIFA terrorists and brutalized the patriots.

Independent journalists Ford Fischer and Brendan Gutenschwager captured the scenes on video where the cops shamefully abdicated their duty to the Bill of Rights and Constitution:

The Proud Boys and other patriotic Trump supporters, who were formerly the nation’s last line of defense in favor of law enforcement, are figuring out that cops will follow virtually any orders to get their fat pension checks.

Law enforcement have enforced COVID lockdown tyranny while largely turning a blind eye to Black Lives Matter thuggery in recent months. Conservatives are beginning to notice and become increasing enraged at the betrayal.

Disgraceful scenes emerged from BLM riots where police genuflected to the new American ruling class of looters, arsonists, communists and anti-white bigots:

The enforcement of COVID-19 edicts has resulted in some of the most unconscionable police abuses in history:

Police have actually enforced the vote steal in Michigan, aiding the coup against the Bill of Rights and Constitution with much-needed muscle, as Big League Politics has reported:

Pro-Trump electors were blocked from entering the Michigan capitol building this afternoon, with GOP leadership working with reviled Governor Gretchen Whitmer to block them from the chamber.

Even though at least one Michigan lawmaker – state representative Matthew Maddock of Milford – arrived to accompany the pro-Trump electors, their civil rights were violated and they were kept out of the chamber by state police anyway.

Earlier in the day, Republican leaders in the Michigan legislature made it clear that they were gung ho about enforcing the vote steal and doing the dirty work of Gov. Whitmer.

Republican house speaker Lee Chatfield of Levering issued a groveling, obsequious letter of submission stating that he opposes all efforts to draft pro-Trump electors.

Sources from inside the Michigan legislature have confirmed that it was in fact Republican leadership who deprived the pro-Trump electors of their rights and colluded with Democrats to enforce the steal.

It seems that law enforcement is as corrupt and destructive as any other institutional power sector in America. It is time for patriotic cops to stand up and start a movement to refuse to comply with all unlawful marxist orders.
