PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona was already expected to be one of the most closely contested states in November’s U.S. presidential election. But a ruling this week instituting a near-total abortion ban supercharged the state’s role, transforming it into perhaps the nation’s most critical battleground.

This Sunbelt state with a fierce independent streak has long been at the forefront of the nation’s immigration debate due to its 378-mile border with Mexico and its large Hispanic and immigrant populations. It now moves to the center of the national debate over reproductive rights after the U.S. Supreme Court ended a federally guaranteed right to abortion.

Abortion and immigration have been two of this year’s biggest political issues. No battleground state has been affected more directly by both than Arizona.

“Do not underestimate this,” Democratic pollster John Anzalone, who polls for President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign, said of the Arizona abortion ruling. “It’s dynamic-changing.”

Biden and presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump are expected to fight hard to win Arizona after Biden carried the state four years ago by less than 11,000 votes.

In addition to the presidency, the U.S. Senate majority may be decided by the state’s high-profile contest between Republican Kari Lake and Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego in the race to replace retiring Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, an independent who caucuses with Democrats.

The state Supreme Court’s ruling reviving an abortion ban passed in 1864 also added rocket fuel to Democrats’ push to add a question to the November ballot asking voters to approve a constitutional amendment protecting the right to abortion until viability, when a fetus could survive outside the womb. Later abortions would be allowed to save the woman’s life or protect her physical or mental health.

You're angry enough to bitch about jews online instead of living your life outside, so there's that. But you won't ever have to worry about killing babies, don't worry.

We Won’t Miss You’: Bill Maher Says He’s ‘Okay’ With Abortion As ‘Murder’


Comedian Bill Maher said Friday on “Real Time with Bill Maher” he is “okay” with abortion even though some consider it to be “murder.”

Maher told guests Gillian Tett, a British author and journalist, Piers Morgan and his audience that people who are pro-life are “kind of” right that abortion is “murder,” before highlighting the reason why he is “okay” with that.

"None of you believe it’s murder. You know, that’s why I don’t understand the 15-week thing. Or the — Trump’s plan is, ‘Let’s leave it to the states.’ You mean, so killing babies is okay in some states?” Maher asked.

“Like, I can respect the absolutist position. I really can,” he continued. “I scold the left on when they say, ‘Oh, you know what, they just hate women, people who aren’t pro-life. They, the pro-choice, they don’t hate women. They just made that up. They think it’s murder. And it kind of is. I’m just okay with that. I am. I, I mean, there’s eight billion people in the world. I’m sorry, we won’t miss you. That’s my position on that.”

The former president previously criticized members of the GOP for “poorly” handling the abortion issue during the 2022 midterm elections on Truth Social in January 2023. Trump said the losses suffered by various Republican candidates “wasn’t my fault.”

Dems say its racist to require students prove the can do math and read on a test before going to college
Also remember in the 2000s when George W Bush passed a law requiring schools teach phonic because it worked to make sure his retarded brother learned how to read so dems intentionally embezzled a ton of NCLB money Marie Clay/Lucy Calkins reading program, that doesn't teach phonic and is scientifically proven not to teach kids to read. And the dems literally installed this in as many schools as possible and used up as much NCLB money on it as possible even though they were told they legally couldn't so they just changed the the Calkins description without changing the program at all. Meaning the Dems intentionally didn't teach pretty much any kid who started going to school after 2002 how to read to own W Bush and that is why zoomers are retarded and have so much more trouble reading 4chan posts than boomers did 5-10 years ago

Federal judge rejects hunter biden's claim of democrat privilege. The man who stated he's "ready to take responsibility" and then pleaded not guilty to literally everything and who refused to testify at the public hearing he claimed to want is losing in court.

Hunter Biden Just Faced 'Devastating Take-Down' in Court—Attorney

Hunter Biden just faced a "devastating take-down" in court regarding his federal gun case, attorney Jonathan Turley said on Saturday.

Hunter Biden is facing three federal gun charges in Delaware, all of which he has pleaded not guilty to. The charges relate to the president's son lying about his drug use on a federal form to purchase a handgun in October 2018.

On Friday, U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika rejected several motions filed by Hunter Biden's lawyers in an effort to throw out the gun charges against their client—one of the claims being that the president's son was being subjected to selective prosecution.

"These charges are the result of political pressure from President Trump and his MAGA allies," said a democrat out of pure cope, successfully parroting the democrat talking point.

Department of Justice's (DOJ) special counsel David Weiss, who is prosecuting the case against Hunter Biden, noted in a recent filing that other defendants did not write "a memoir in which they made countless statements proving their crimes and drawing further attention to their criminal conduct."

A federal judge in Delaware refused Friday to throw out a federal gun case against Hunter Biden, rejecting the president's son's claim that he is being prosecuted for political purposes as well as other arguments.

U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika denied defense efforts to scuttle the prosecution charging Hunter Biden with lying about his drug use in October 2018 on a form to buy a gun that he kept for about 11 days.

Hunter Biden's lawyers had argued the case was politically motivated and asserted that an immunity provision from an original plea deal that fell apart still holds. They had also challenged the appointment of special counsel David Weiss, the U.S. attorney in Delaware, to lead the prosecution.

The trial is tentatively scheduled to begin in early June.

Noreika, who was appointed to the bench by former President Donald Trump, has not yet ruled on a challenge to the constitutionality of the gun charges.

Hunter Biden faces separate tax counts in Los Angeles alleging he failed to pay at least $1.4 million in taxes over three years while living an "extravagant lifestyle," during his days of using drugs. The judge overseeing that case refused to dismiss the charges earlier this month.

Hunter Biden caused this?!?!?

While I don't hate Biden as much as you, it's nice to see children of the elite held accountable (if it actually happens).

Wow, Bruen sure did cause murders to go down. Remember when dems said we would become the wild west? Remember when dems said everyone carrying a gun would result in constant mass murder?

In the wars within wars of this grievous Gaza crisis, the most explosive of all is the searing official enmity between Israel and Iran.

It's now at its most perilous point.

And this region, and many capitals beyond, are watching and waiting with bated breath to see what Iran does next.

It's Tehran's move after the airstrike on its diplomatic compound in the heart of the Syrian capital, Damascus on 1 April, which killed senior commanders in its Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

Israel never admits carrying out such attacks, but everyone knows it was its doing.

And since the Israel-Gaza war erupted six months ago, Israel has ramped up its targeting of Iran, not just destroying arms supplies and infrastructure in Syria, but assassinating senior IRGC and Hezbollah commanders.

"We will make them regret this crime and other ones like it, by God's will," warned Iran's Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

This is like World War 7 by now if you;'re being technical
>If Iran attacks from its territory - Israel will respond and attack in Iran,"
Israel now not going to do this
Womp Womp.
I'm not really sure what Israel was expecting. You can't just bomb another country's embassy and expect to get away with it. Israel know it fucked up and has accepted the consequences. Iran said the matter is concluded now that it has re-established its deterrent. History goes back to be frozen.
Does Iran have a nuke up it's sleeve?
Have they been in contact with N.Korea?
Have these 2 outsmarted the CIA?
Did Israel know about Oct 7 before hand and then allowed it to happen as an excuse to ethnically cleanse the Gaza?
Or was Israel clueless and if so, maybe Iran and North Korea have a nuke up their sleeve

Of course they knew that, they just thought the USA would come to their defense.

The whole point is preventing the US from normalizing relationships with other Middle East powers, because as soon as they do, Israel loses monopoly on a lot of military support.

Expect higher fees from the gun store faggots when they try to gouge you the incredibly hard work of typing in your info into the NICS portal which takes like 2 mins and they charge like $50 because they are faggots.

Also, curious that "off the street" is listed separately from "drug dealer" or "fence". Almost as if people sell guns on the street ALL THE GOD DAMN TIME.

I see the problem
>Off the street or underground market
>– illegal sources of firearms that include markets for stolen goods, middlemen for stolen goods, criminals or criminal enterprises, or individuals or groups involved in sales of illegal drugs.
>Off the street/underground marketa
>aIllegal sources of firearms that include markets for stolen goods, middlemen for stolen goods, criminals or criminal enterprises, or individuals or groups involved in sales of illegal drugs.
off the street is clearly defined as an illegal sale either due to the gun being stolen, part of the drug trade or both. those are already crimes. I can see why you would come up with your own definition, because you can't read and all, children do that too when they can't read so they guess what the picture says. Its a big part of the Lucy Calkins/Marie Clay reading system. What you are describing are online sales
>. Fewer than 1% of state and federal prisoners reported obtaining a firearm online. These responses were included in table
5 in the “other” category due to the small number of sample cases.
I know reading can be hard for zoomers, I hope this helps
> Almost as if people sell guns on the street ALL THE GOD DAMN TIME.
except this study shows that private sales between individuals who didn't know each other make up less than 1% of crime guns so the rule change to "close the gun show loophole" is going to affect less than 1% of crime guns. Because gun owners aren't the ones selling crime guns and you just want a registry. I literally don't even get your retarded logic. Gun ownership is the number 1 predictor for if someone votes for trump. you really think trump voters are selling guns to blacks and other minorities? I can assure you every gun owner I've ever met is racist enough that they would not do a private gun sale to a black man they didn't know

The case could also erase one of the biggest charges former President Donald Trump now faces.


On Jan. 6, 2021, Joseph Fischer allegedly entered the U.S. Capitol, along with more than 2,000 others, in the effort to stop the counting of the electoral votes that was already underway.

Fischer wasn’t there in his official capacity as a police officer with the North Cornwall Township Police Department in Pennsylvania. He was there to, per text messages he sent that were later cited in a filing by Department of Justice lawyers, “take democratic congress to the gallows.”

“Can’t vote if they can’t breathe..lol,” Fischer allegedly wrote in another text message about his plans before Jan. 6.

Fischer, per federal charging documents, pushed his way into the building with yells of “Charge!” Once inside, he crashed into a line of police officers, according to a cell phone video he recorded. Fischer and at least one police officer were knocked to the ground. Police removed him four minutes later.

Later identified by one of his coworkers, Fischer was arrested by federal officers on Feb. 19, 2021. He was charged with multiple felonies, but has still yet to go to trial. That’s because he’s appealed one of his charges all the way to the Supreme Court, which will hear arguments on April 16.

At issue is a law that makes it a felony if someone “corruptly … obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding, or attempts to do so.” This law — known as 18 U.S.C. 1512(c) — was enacted as part of the accounting reform law passed in 2002, in the wake of the Enron and Arthur Andersen scandals. Federal prosecutors have used it to charge 330 people who were involved in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, including Fischer — and former President Donald Trump.

Jill Biden calls Trump ‘dangerous’ and ‘a bully’ in speech to LGBT group


First lady Jill Biden took aim at former President Donald Trump on Friday while speaking to an LGBT advocacy group.

“Donald Trump is a bully,” she said at the Human Rights Campaign’s Equality in Action event. “He is dangerous to the LGBTQ community, to our families, to our country, and we cannot let him win. We have to fight like hell until Joe and Kamala have another term.”

The first lady’s speech at the Sheraton Pentagon City in Arlington, Virginia, comes just after the launch of the Biden campaign’s “Out for Biden-Harris” initiative to engage LGBT voters.

“We’ve made progress, but there’s still so much more to do,” Jill Biden told the crowd of more than 500. “And we can’t and we won’t go back and refight the fights of the past.”

Those battles, she added, include rights being taken away, freedoms eroding, and state laws that target the LGBT community.

“Just last month, we had to fend off more than 50 anti-gay amendments that Republicans tried to force into the government funding bill,” she said, explaining that the amendments would have limited healthcare and other protections for same-sex couples.

SAN DIEGO, California — The US Border Patrol has more than twice as many migrants as they can hold in the San Diego area of the southern border — and immigrants there were thanking President Biden for letting them in.

The agency’s processing centers in the region are 245% capacity, as 1,812 migrants were being detained as of Friday in facilities normally meant to hold 750, according to agency data exclusively obtained by The Post.

With the influx — and the fact that migrants can only be held 72 hours — there’s been more than 125,000 migrants released onto the streets of San Diego since September.

Migrants who were exiting Border Patrol buses this week told The Post they were from a diverse array of countries — from China, India and Egypt to Jordan, Mauritania and Colombia.

“Thank you America, thank you American president,” a migrant from India said after being dropped off by Border Patrol and allowed to enter the US.

With so many people coming, there’s concern among the rank-and-file Border Patrol agents that the agency is not able to properly vet everyone before releasing them into the country with court dates

I forgot to address the article.
These migrants will create a booming economy as they are needed because all this robot labor is sci-fi, and we need them to farm the soy and process it, for the pods, and we need labor to remove the bodies from the pods, and to add the bodies to the vats of shit from the pods and keep the vats fermenting to use as fertilizer to grow the soy.

This is very green and brown and sustainable.

HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — Real estate tycoon Truong My Lan was sentenced Thursday to death by a court in Ho Chi Minh City in southern Vietnam in the country’s largest financial fraud case ever, state media Vietnam Net said.

The 67-year-old chair of the real estate company Van Thinh Phat was formally charged with fraud amounting to $12.5 billion — nearly 3% of the country’s 2022 GDP.

Lan illegally controlled Saigon Joint Stock Commercial Bank between 2012 and 2022 and allowed 2,500 loans that resulted in losses of $27 billion to the bank, reported state media VnExpress. The court asked her to compensate the bank $26.9 million.

Despite mitigating circumstances — this was a first-time offense and Lan participated in charity activities — the court attributed its harsh sentence to the seriousness of the case, saying Lan was at the helm of an orchestrated and sophisticated criminal enterprise that had serious consequences with no possibility of the money being recovered, VnExpress said.

Her actions “not only violate the property management rights of individuals and organizations but also push SCB (Saigon Joint Stock Commercial Bank) into a state of special control; eroding people’s trust in the leadership of the Party and State,” VnExpress quoted the judgement as saying.

Her niece, Truong Hue Van, the chief executive of Van Thinh Phat, was sentenced to 17 years in prison for aiding her aunt, and Lan’s husband Eric Chu Nap-kee, who is from Hong Kong, was given nine years in prison.

Lan and her family established the Van Thing Phat company in 1992 after Vietnam shed its state-run economy in favor of a more market-oriented approach that was open to foreigners. She started out helping her mother, a Chinese entrepreneur, sell cosmetics in Ho Chi Minh City’s oldest market, according to state media Tien Phong.

Iran Seizes Cargo Ship Linked to Israeli Billionaire

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard seized an Israeli-affiliated shipping vessel on Saturday, amid mounting tensions between the two countries—and threats of military action—after a deadly missile strike hit Iran’s embassy in Syria.

Operatives of the Iranian paramilitary group rappelled onto the container ship, MSC Aries, as it sailed through the Strait of Hormuz, according to IRNA, a state media outlet in Iran. The ship was then directed into Iranian waters.

The Portuguese-flagged vessel is operated by Zodiac Maritime, a shipping company owned by Israeli billionaire Eyal Ofer. Forbes estimates that Ofer is worth $24.8 billion.

Following the seizure, Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz said Iran was committing piracy, and called on the international community to declare the Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization. Iran “is a criminal regime that supports Hamas’ crimes and is now conducting a pirate operation in violation of international law,” Katz said.


Israel has been bracing for an imminent attack ever since Iran vowed it would retaliate after a deadly missile strike on its embassy in Syria earlier this month. A top commander in Iran’s Quds Force, Mohammed Reza Zahedi, was said to be among a group of seven Iranians killed in the blast.

Iran claims Israel is responsible for the attack. On Friday, it was reported that top Pentagon officials had expressed frustration that Israel did not give them a heads-up on their plans to strike the Iranian consulate.

Saturday’s attack on the vessel comes after predictions that Iran would hit Israel through proxy forces in the region, as opposed to launching a direct attack. On Friday, U.S. embassy personnel in Israel were warned of the likelihood of an attack in the coming 48 hours, and advised to limit their travel outside of Tel Aviv.

President Biden pledged that the U.S. would support Israel in its conflict with Iran, according to the Associated Press. “We are devoted to the defense of Israel,” he said. “We will support Israel, we will help defend Israel and Iran will not succeed.”

Tensions between the two nations have only continued to rise throughout Israel's brutal military campaign in Gaza, which has killed over 33,000 people according to Gaza’s Ministry of Health. Iran has, until this point, been apprehensive to attack Israel directly. Meanwhile, Yemen’s Houthi rebels, who are backed by Iran, have made multiple attacks against Israeli vessels in the Red Sea since October.
