USA: Sanitizing the Judiciary

donaldtrumppoints1Donald Trump is certainly not perfect, but…

The US President’s recent appointments of ten federal judges of various types – all of them in the mould of Judge Gorsuch – shows once again that the man is serious about the return of sanity in American judicial courts. The number of vacancies is higher than usual, possibly because Obama, having lost control of the Senate, preferred to wait for the November 2016 elections (which the Democrats expected to win rather than lose) rather than appoint decent judges. Trump’s victory and (narrow) majority in the Senate now allows him to help shape the federal courts for decades to come, through the appointment of young judges with impeccable credentials.

This is another example of how important Trump’s unexpected victory was not only for the United States, but for Western Civilisation in general.

US House endorses bill to replace controversial “Obamacare”

obamacareWith 217-213 votes the House passed a health care bill on Thursday that would repeal and replace major parts of fomer US President Obama’s “Affordable Care Act”. While there is broad consensus in the US on the objective of making health care more affordable, Obamacare was highly controversial because it used “health care” as a pretext for promoting abortion and contraception, making it an obligation for employers, including even faith-based institutions whose professed ethics prohibit such abominations, to finance both.

Today’s vote is an important step forward towards the restoration of liberty of conscience, and a severe blow to the abortion industry. However, the bill still needs to pass a vote in the Senate.

Trump expected to sign Executive Order that (at least partially) restores freedom of conscience

There are various, and diverging, reports in American media that US President Trump will today sign an executive order that would restore the freedom of conscience and religion in the US, a fundamental right that currently is severely curtailed by sweeping so-called “anti-discrimination” rules that are used by sodomites and pro-sodomy activists to harass their fellow citizens, in particular religious believers.

The reports diverge with regard to the scope of the planned order. While some sources say it will be broadly identical to the draft that was leaked in February and has unleashed very aggressive reactions from the sodomy-community, others say it will be somewhat less ambitious. Continue reading

Tidal change at UN Commission on “Women’s Rights”

Thanks to the outcome of last year’s presidential elections the US, which under President Obama was the most radical supporter of baby-slaughtering, is now taking a clear stance in favour of comprehensively protecting human rights, including the right to life, at the United Nations. This suddenly leaves the European Union rather isolated in its absurd attempt to get the deliberate murdering of unborn children recognized as a “women’s right”.

What Donald Trump still needs to learn about the EU…

trump-eu-750x500In his riotous, and therefore quite amusing, press conference last week, US President Trump, among other things, sketched out his intended policy on trade:

Let me list to you some of the things that we’ve done in just a short period of time. I just got here. And I got here with no cabinet. Again, each of these actions is a promise I made to the American people.

I’ll go over just some of them and we have a lot happening next week and in the weeks — in the weeks coming. We’ve withdrawn from the job-killing disaster known as Trans Pacific Partnership. We’re going to make trade deals but we’re going to have one on one deals, bilateral. We’re going to have one on one deals.

So it is not that he wants to have no trade agreements at all, it is that he thinks he will cut better deals when negotiating bilateral rather than regional agreements. Continue reading

Trump scraps Obama’s Toilet-Decree

_89683001_89683000Sanity returns to the sanitary. US President Donald Trump has accomplished another important objective of his presidency, scrapping his pre-decessor’s controversial “Toilet-Decree”, which allowed men to use women’s bathrooms, and vice versa, solely on the basis of a person’s self-ascribed “gender identity”. Critics had described this decree as “post-factual” legislation par excellence, and warned that, creating optimal conditions for voyeurism and sexual assaults, it threatened the privacy and safety of people with normal sexual behaviour..

Liberals in the US are railing.
