‘The Right to Eat Dinner’-Leftists Mock supreme court judge Kavanaugh After Pro-Abortion Thugs Force Him to Flee Restaurant

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh dropped by Morton’s Steakhouse in downtown Washington, D.C., for dinner Wednesday night, but it didn’t turn out to be a pleasant evening: Kavanaugh was spotted, Leftist protesters appeared, and the justice had to leave through the back door. A Morton’s representative then issued a statement saying that politics shouldn’t intrude on one’s “right to eat dinner,” and for Leftist Twitter, it was off to the races. “The right to eat dinner”? Why, that isn’t in the Constitution, and therefore does not exist!

Politico was likewise cheered at the prospect of Leftist thugs forcing Kavanaugh to flee Morton’s, heading its notice of the incident “Happy Friday” and adding: “Thanks for reading Playbook. Drop us a line with your best constitutional argument for the right to eat dinner.” Politico then provided email addresses for three of its “journalists”: Rachael Bade, Eugene Daniels, and Ryan Lizza.

The “constitutional argument for the right to eat dinner” business comes from Morton’s response to the incident, which began, Politico said, when “D.C. protesters targeting the conservative Supreme Court justices who signed onto the Dobbs decision overturning the constitutional right to abortion got a tip that Justice Brett Kavanaugh was dining at Morton’s downtown D.C. location. Protesters soon showed up out front, called the manager to tell him to kick Kavanaugh out, and later tweeted that the justice was forced to exit through the rear of the restaurant.” Note the manipulative wording: Politico assumes that there is a “constitutional right to abortion” that was overturned when there never actually was such a right, and the claim that there was never had any justification in the Constitution at all. This is how the Leftist media attempts to control the narrative.

Politico went farther than that, sneering at Kavanaugh despite the fact that he was the victim of the incident. If Sonia Sotomayor had been the Justice who was thus harassed, would Politico’s coverage have been different? Like night and day. But in this case, Politico continued, “Daniel Lippman looked into the incident for us and confirmed that account. While the court had no official comment on Kavanaugh’s behalf and a person familiar with the situation said he did not hear or see the protesters and ate a full meal but left before dessert, Morton’s was outraged about the incident.” And here is where the real fun began: “A rep for the chain steakhouse sent Lippman this statement: ‘Honorable Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by unruly protestors while eating dinner at our Morton’s restaurant. Politics, regardless of your side or views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner. There is a time and place for everything. Disturbing the dinner of all of our customers was an act of selfishness and void of decency.”

Was the Morton’s rep making a statement about constitutional rights? Of course not. He or she was making a statement about common decency, a virtue that is in alarmingly short supply among Leftists. But in using the word “right” in connection with Kavanaugh’s natural right to enjoy a meal in peace, Morton’s rep gave Leftist commentators what they thought was an opening. MSNBC’s Katie S. Phang tweeted: “‘The right to eat dinner.’ Sounds like a privacy right not identified or listed in the Constitution so therefore, it doesn’t exist.” Another Leftist “journalist,” Judd Legum, tweeted an implicit call for boycotts of restaurants that had the temerity to let conservatives eat: “.@Mortons is owned by billionaire @TilmanJFertitta Fertitta also owns @RainForest_Cafe, @McandSchmicks, @BubbaGumpCo, and numerous other chains.” If such boycotts materialize, that would be just fine with the fascists of ShutDownDC, who tweeted: “We hear Kavanaugh snuck out the back with his security detail. @mortons should be ashamed for welcoming a man who so clearly hates women.”

The reactions from Politico and the Leftist journalists, and numerous other Leftists on Twitter, show that the Left is embracing totalitarianism at a rapid clip and that all too many Leftists are just fine with the idea that if you hold political opinions that they deem unacceptable, you should be harassed and hounded anywhere and everywhere, presumably until you’re simply too exhausted to continue to dissent from their agenda. “Inside every progressive,” ex-progressive David Horowitz has said, “is a totalitarian screaming to get out.” They’re out, they’re out.

TREASON? Biden CAUGHT Red Handed Sending US Strategic Oil Reserves to China!

America's Oil Reserves Sent Overseas - What's Happening?

Oil from the US Petroleum and Oil Reserves was sent overseas to China, which is stockpiling its resources. More than 5 million barrels of oil that were part of an historic U.S. emergency oil reserves release aimed at lowering domestic fuel prices were exported to Europe and Asia last month, even as U.S. gasoline and diesel prices touched record highs. About 1 million barrels per day are being released from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) through October. The flow is draining the SPR, which last month fell to the lowest since 1986. U.S. crude futures are above $100 per barrel, and gasoline and diesel prices are above $5 a gallon for one-fifth of the nation. U.S. officials have said oil prices could be higher if the SPR had not been tapped. The truth is fuel prices are still high and the SPR remains a critical energy security tool to address global crude oil supply disruptions. The government still believes that releasing the emergency oil helped ensure a stable supply of crude oil. However, supply has not increased, and demand remains high.

An Unsecured Border Is a Mortal and Moral Hazard~Human trafficking, minors crossing illegally in record numbers, and tragic deaths

It happened outside Brackettville, Texas, which sits about halfway between Uvalde and the border crossing at Del Rio.

This was a shooting you probably did not hear about — in part, thankfully, because no one was hurt.

A U.S. Border Patrol agent was on a road that runs out of Brackettville when he saw a Chevrolet Suburban heading north. It was just before 10:00 a.m. on Jan. 3, 2021.

"The USBP agent activated his overhead lights to initiate a vehicle stop on the SUV in order to conduct an immigration inspection," said a criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas.

"A high-speed pursuit ensued as the SUV attempted to abscond from USBP agents," the complaint alleged. "During the course of the pursuit, multiple shots were fired at the USBP agents who were attempting to stop the vehicle. The vehicle traveled at a high rate of speed, in excess of 100 MPH for approximately twenty-eight minutes before law enforcement officers were able to successfully deploy spike strips, bringing the vehicle to a stop."

"USBP agents apprehended six (6) Honduran nationals who were illegally present in the United States without proper documentation," alleged the complaint.

The driver of the vehicle was also illegally in the United States. He was, alleged the complaint, "Sergio Trevino, a Mexican national and illegal alien, who initially absconded from the SUV, but was later apprehended."

"Sergio Trevino admitted his involvement in the failed alien smuggling event by stating he was hired by a friend in Houston, Texas to knowingly and willingly transport IAs further into the United States," alleged the complaint. "Trevino stated he was going to be paid approximately $2,000.00 USD for transporting the IAs.

"Trevino also admitted that he used the firearm and fired multiple shots from the moving vehicle, at law enforcement agents, as agents attempted to conduct the immigration inspection," the complaint alleged.

On June 15, Immigration and Customs Enforcement released a statement about the resolution of the Trevino case.

"A Mexican citizen was sentenced to more than 17 years in federal prison for shooting at two U.S. Border Patrol agents near Brackettville," said ICE.

"On June 10, Sergio Trevino, 35, was sentenced to 214 months in prison," it said. "On March 31, 2021, Trevino pleaded guilty to one count of assault on a federal officer and one count of using a firearm during a crime of violence. Trevino was sentenced to 94 months in prison on the assault charge and 120 months on the use of a firearm charge with both sentences to run consecutively."

Ashley Hoff, the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Texas, summarized the situation.

"Sergio Trevino not only placed the lives of the U.S. Border Patrol agents who were attempting to apprehend him in peril but also the lives of the undocumented noncitizens he was transporting and everyone traveling on the road that day," she said.

"Thankfully," she said, "no one was seriously injured by his senseless and dangerous actions."

A similar expression of relief cannot be made concerning the profoundly tragic events that soon unfolded in the same part of Texas for the same reason: an unsecured border.

Less than two weeks after U.S. Attorney Hoff issued her statement about the resolution of the Brackettville incident, San Antonio police officers called Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) to join them at the scene of a crime.

"San Antonio Police Department (SAPD) officers advised HSI special agents as they arrived at the location of the tractor-trailer in southwest San Antonio after receiving 911 calls from concerned citizens," said a statement released by ICE. "At the scene, SAPD officers discovered multiple individuals inside the tractor-trailer, on the ground, and in nearby brush — many of them deceased and some incapacitated."

"HSI confirmed that 48 individuals at the scene were deceased," the office of the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Texas reported two days later.

"Of those 22 were Mexican nationals, seven Guatemalan nationals, two Honduran nationals, and 17 of unknown origin but suspected to be undocumented non-citizens," said the U.S. attorney's office.

"HSI confirmed the undocumented status of the deceased individuals by utilizing a mobile fingerprint device," said the U.S. attorney's statement. "Sixteen of the 64 undocumented individuals were transported to local hospitals for medical evaluation. Five died at the hospital."

The next day, the Houston Chronicle carried a story headlined: "Minors migrating in record numbers."

"The four kids reported to have been hospitalized after being found in a packed, overheated tractor-trailer in San Antonio on Monday are among the growing number of children and teens making the perilous journey to the United States," the Chronicle reported.

"Bexar County officials have also told media that some of the 53 who died from the incident may be under 18," said the paper.

"The number of unaccompanied children and teens apprehended at the border has increased 17-fold since 2008, according to a new Syracuse University analysis of U.S. Customs and Border Protection data," the Chronicle reported.

In fact, the Syracuse analysis shows that in fiscal 2008, the Border Patrol apprehended 8,081 unaccompanied children (17 or younger). That rose to 76,136 in fiscal 2019, before the COVID pandemic hit. Then it dropped to 19,657 in fiscal 2020, in the midst of the pandemic and President Donald Trump's last full year in office.

In fiscal 2021, when President Joe Biden took office, it jumped to 140,230 — a one-year climb of more than 600%.

This column argued eight years ago that our unsecured southern border was like an unfenced swimming pool — a mortal hazard for would-be illegal crossers and a moral hazard for those who refused to secure it.

That June, a 15-year-old boy from Guatemala was found dead in the Rio Grande Valley. "He apparently got lost on his way north and likely died from exposure in the hot, dry brush country of South Texas," the Associated Press reported then.

This June, it was 53 people trapped in a tractor-trailer.

Google announces plans to aid and abet criminals who search for illegal access to abortion

(Natural News) The location information of Google users who visit abortion clinics or other abortion-related facilities will now be purged from existence after the search engine giant announced special new protections for baby murderers in response to the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.

Because of the potential legal problems involved with getting an abortion in many areas of the country where it is now illegal, Google decided to update its privacy policy to automatically delete any incriminating information that might expose users who attempt to get an illegal abortion.

Google still plans to spy on conservatives, of course, as the new policy primarily applies to “pro-choice” users, as well as people who visit fertility centers and weight loss clinics.

“We’re committed to delivering robust privacy protections for people who use our products, and we will continue to look for new ways to strengthen and improve these protections,” announced Jen Fitzpatrick, a Google senior vice president, in a blog post.

Google will only protect your privacy if you want to get an illegal abortion

As you may recall, Google has faced intense public scrutiny over the past several years concerning its flagrant violations of user privacy. Many have criticized the tech giant for operating fast and loose with user activity, only to have the company balk at these concerns.

However, now that abortion is illegal or highly restricted in about half the country, Google is suddenly concerned about user privacy – but only those users who still want to murder their unborn babies against the law and not be tracked.

“The calls for more stringent privacy controls were triggered by the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion,” reported the Associated Press (AP).

“That reversal could lead to increased protections for infants in more than a dozen states, raising the specter that records about people’s location, texts, searches, and emails could be used in prosecutions against abortion procedures.”

Every year, Google receives thousands of requests from the government for its users’ digital records. The government claims that it is investigating “misconduct,” and Google happily hands over that information even though doing so may constitute illicit spying.

The Roe v. Wade decision prompted Google to finally do something about these privacy breaches, but only to protect pro-abortionists who use Google’s services – everyone else will still be spied on indiscriminately.

“Google uses your data for its own purposes and sells you and your data to make money,” wrote a commenter at Headline USA.

“Google is the spy in your office, your home, or when you are on the road. Purge Google and use Brave or any other search engine that protects you.”

Another pointed out that Fitzpatrick’s statement is disingenuous because the FBI, CIA, or NSA can still siphon data in order to frame their targets.

“This nation deserves anything and everything it gets from anyone,” this person added.

Someone else commented that Google’s new selective information purging protocols constitute censorship racketeering and that this is ripe for a lawsuit.

“The real question here is why is Google collecting this information in the first place?” wrote another.

“They have no legitimate need for it, no business purpose behind its collection and probable retention, just the ability to change their stance, or worse yet, to say one thing and do the other in selling or otherwise distributing this information.”

Others pointed out that abortion seekers probably would not be prosecuted anyway, and that only the illegal providers would be at risk.

The Disappearing American?

“Help wanted” and “now hiring” signs are everywhere. Flights, construction projects, and healthcare services are delayed – or unavailable – due to labor shortages.

Hourly and monthly wages spiral. There is a growing disequilibrium between the number of available jobs and the declining pool of workers needed to fill them.

What is going on?

During the nearly two-year-long COVID-19 shutdown and economic downturn, firms cut costs by laying off millions of employees.

As a result, some in their early- or mid-60s simply retired early and never came back to work.

Federal and state governments also vastly expanded financial support to the unemployed. Other workers figured they would not make all that much more by working and so are staying home on government checks.

Still other former full-time employees became used to the new, more leisurely lifestyle and are loath to return to a full 40-hour work week.

Employers also are now convinced that a hard recession is on the early 2023 horizon when the trillions of dollars of newly printed money run out. Many are willing to put up with worker shortages now, rather than hire too many employees only to have them idle when consumer demand soon crashes.

Still other workers fear yet another COVID pandemic and are not eager to return to daily contact with the public.

The government has no idea how some Americans remain sick with the mysterious “long COVID” chronic aftermath of the infectious phase of the disease.

Well over 100 million Americans have likely had COVID. An estimated 10-30 percent do not recover for months — or even years.

So, millions of COVID long haulers remain either unable to work or can only work part-time.

Yet no one yet has fully calibrated the effect of newly disabled millions on the American economy.

Add up all these dark clouds and America is experiencing a perfect storm, in which only 61% of the able workforce is currently officially employed.

Unfortunately, there are also even longer-term, structural labor problems for the U.S. economy that make it unlikely that a new larger generation of workers will soon surge into the labor force. And for now, Silicon Valley has not produced its long-promised artificially intelligent robots that would allow machines to do much of the work of people.

True, there are more potential parents than ever before. And the American population has soared to over 330 million.

But our population is radically leveling off.

In just 14 years the fertility rate has crashed from 2.12 to 1.64 — meaning that both citizens and resident aliens in America are not replacing themselves.

While past demographic momentum has led to an all-time population high, the United States has already peaked demographically. And it will soon shrink and further age.

Thirty years ago, America had 80 million fewer people, but a quarter-million more annual births.

What explains the disappearing American?

Historically, as Westernized cultures become more affluent and leisured, whether it’s ancient Rome or modern America and Europe, they birth fewer children — even as their appetites for more household and personal help spike.

Life apparently is seen as too enjoyable to invest years in raising children. Americans are certainly marrying later. They are having fewer children — and in their 30s rather than 20s.

Women now make up nearly 60% of undergraduate college students. Female professional careers and delaying or avoiding birth are seen as essential to future family incomes.

Given that men who pass on college now account for 70% of enrollment declines in undergraduate education, there are far too few college-educated males for the new majority cohort of college-educated women.

The real gender crisis in America are these listless and stalled 20-something men. Too many are still living at home, not fully employed, often in debt, hooked on social media, video games, or satisfying their appetites — and with scant interest in marrying, much less raising children.

Figures on annual abortions remain hotly disputed. But the number of annual reported abortions still ranges somewhere from more than 600,000 to just under 900,000.

There may be almost 20 abortions for every 100 American pregnancies — or one in five pregnancies that are terminated.

Our popular culture reflects this multifarious growing reluctance to raise children. And currently, only 65% of children grow up in families with both parents.

The 2012 Obamacare ad, “The Life of Julia,” fixated on the new ideal American woman: a single parent of one child, unmarried, and utterly reliant on nearly 65 years of government support.

The 2013 follow-up bookend ad fetishized “Pajama Boy.” He was supposed to be a typical prolonged-adolescent, man-child — sitting at home in his child-like footie pajamas, sipping hot chocolate.

“Pajama Boy” was likely the sort that “Julia” had no intention of marrying.

There are historical downsides — economic, cultural, social, and military — to nations that shun child-raising.

They shrink in size, and age, no longer believe in transcendence, become mostly agnostic or atheistic, and obsess with the self.

And sometimes they eventually become dysfunctional — and slowly disappear.
