It’s Been Quite A Week
The first ever leak from the Supreme Court threw the nation into a tizzy. It’s still incredible that someone in a position of honor would so dishonor 250 years of tradition.
It’s also incredible that one party finds nothing wrong with this break. Adam Schiff actually said he didn’t care who did it. Can you believe that?
Another clear issue to help decide on which side you are on for the upcoming mid terms.
The end result is the court is now fenced in to protect the judges and staff. The justices cannot keep speech and visit commitments, their home addresses were released and their families are now being guarded.
How dare someone think they are bigger than the nation.
If this person is a hero to you I can tell you that we are on different sides.
The left and media are continuing to say this will outlaw abortion — which remains a lie.
Where’s the new disinformation czar on this? I can tell you, she is for the home protests and fine with the leak.
Each state will decide on a timeframe. It’s that simple.
To change the law in a state, simply vote in people who support your side.
It’s called the American way.
The decision, which we do not have yet, was over Mississippi wanting to limit abortions to the first 15 weeks (first trimester).
The decision just says, okay you can do that because there is no federal law, you can have a state one.
What I found interesting was a poll released yesterday that said that is exactly where most Americans are. Here’s the question and result:
“Thinking about the 2022 election for Congress, please tell me which of the following candidates you would be more likely to vote for.
A Republican candidate who supports banning abortions after 15 weeks with exceptions for the life and physical health of the mother or severe fatal abnormality of the baby.
A Democrat candidate who supports unlimited abortion up until the moment of birth.”
Fifty-three percent said the GOP candidate — including 54% of Independents — while only 28% said the Democrat.
Note: At the bottom of this blog I added more results from the poll if you are interested.
So the battle ahead is this:
Who defines what the issue is.
Do the Democrats define it as abortion going away and Republicans are nazi like and out of touch.
Republicans talking limits of first trimester and saying termination or partial birth abortion at nine months is wrong.
Right now, because of louder voices and MSM support, the Democrats are winning.
The definition of the issue and who defines it best could well determine the mid terms.
The Democrats needed this issue.
The polls were beginning to show a House blowout and that Republicans would likely win the senate.
In fact, polls showed President Biden under water in 40 states. It was not good.
A link to this fascinating state by state poll is also below if you want to see a really deep look.
Thus, we get an unprecedented Supreme Court leak on a hot issue that favors Dems and we will see the gap narrow.
Add the culmination and hearings coming in the fall over January 6th and maybe, just maybe they can salvage something.
The President said this yesterday:
“This MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history, in recent American history.”
I don’t think so, Mr. President.
Close to half the nation wants an America First program and focus. Most of them did not want the Capital attack we witnessed. To lump them all in as one is simply wrong again and dangerous.
If you say the Jan. 6th group broke the law, I agree. But then again you supported an awful lot who broke the law last summer.
Let’s be fair here.
I’ll close the week with the news that man who attacked comedian Dave Chappelle on stage this week, will not face felony charges. He charged the stage to attack the performer. He had a fake gun that had a real knife on it, but the DA does not consider that a felony. The attacker gets a $30,000 bail.
You get what you vote for. Think about that as we approach the mid terms.
Happy Mother’s Day To All The Moms Reading This.
Here’s Hoping Your Weekend Is Special.
Additional POLL QUESTIONS AND RESULTS:
- “Unelected federal judges should not make laws. States should be able to establish their own laws regarding abortion, as they do on everything else.” Polling: Fifty-four percent strongly or somewhat agree, while 32% strongly or somewhat disagree.
- “Whether you are pro-life or pro-choice, we can all agree that taxpayer money should not be used to pay for abortions.” Polling: Sixty-five percent strongly or somewhat agree, including 66% of independent voters.
- “It’s acceptable for states to limit late-term abortions if the state makes it affordable to put babies up for adoption and financially assists the birth mother.” Polling: Fifty-nine percent strongly or somewhat agreed, while 26% disagreed.
- “If you knew the following were true, would it make you more or less likely to support current abortion laws: Current abortion policy in the United States allows for abortions to be performed for any reason, up until the very moment of birth.” Polling: Fourteen percent said “much more” or “somewhat more” likely, while 57% said “much less” or “somewhat less” likely.
- “Thinking about the 2022 election for Congress, please tell me which of the following candidates you would be more likely to vote for.

A Democrat candidate who supports unlimited abortion up until the moment of birth.” Polling: Fifty-three percent said the GOP candidate — including 54% of Independents — while only 28% said the Democrat.
Biden’s Net Approval Rating Is Underwater in 40 States
The president has made up no ground in states that’ll be key to Democrats’ chances in 2022 and 2024
More than half of Democratic voters “strongly” approve of Biden’s performance in just one state — Wyoming — compared to 47 states in the first quarter of 2021.
Perceptions of President Joe Biden’s job performance worsened across most of the country in the first quarter of this year, deepening the challenges for his party in key states ahead of this year’s midterm elections that largely overlap with the 2024 presidential map.
According to Morning Consult Political Intelligence quarterly tracking in all 50 states, more voters now disapprove than approve of Biden’s job performance in 40 states, following double-digit declines in his net approval rating — the share of voters who approve minus the share who disapprove — since he took office in January 2021.
Biden’s net approval rating has dropped by more than 20 points over the past year in all of the states hosting hotly contested Senate races or competitive House races this fall that are also set to feature prominently in 2024.
Even in Colorado, which Biden won by nearly 14 points in 2020, more voters disapprove of him than approve, 49% to 47%. It’s similar to his standing in Virginia, where his downturn among self-identified suburbanites helped hand Republican Glenn Youngkin the governorship.
Here’s a link to the full poll. It is a fascinating state by state view.
