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.

Homosexuals in California not allowed to have access to therapies

Bad news for sodomites in California who want to free themselves from their (often undesired) inclination: the US Supreme Court apparently wants them to remain enslaved to their vice, declining to hear a challenge against a Californian law that prohibits therapies aiming at liberating people from their homosexuality from being offered to persons under the age of 18 years. The reasons for this decision have not been made public. Continue reading

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

SCOTUS: Justice Anthony Kennedy to retire still this year?

Following the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch as a new member of the Supreme Court of the United States, there are now speculations that soon there could be another vacancy to be filled: allegedly, Justice Anthony Kennedy is considering retirement. While the appointment of Gorsuch meant that one allegedly “conservative” judge, Antonin Scalia, was replaced by another, the possible replacement of Justice Kennedy, who is 80 years old, could be a real game changer.

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”.
