What is Bill de Blasio doing running for president? Why are the Iranians blowing holes in Saudi tankers and why are people acting like it’s crazy we want to stop them? And why is Alabama passing extreme legislation against abortion? Today’s podcast asks these questions and kinda answers them somewhat. Give a listen.

    Abortion is very extreme for the child.

    Wow, Noah is dumb. I can only conclude that neither he, nor Christine for that matter, knows any genuine pro-life person.

    My understanding that Row V Wade was decided on the woman’s right to privacy in her relationship with her doctor. But doesnt ObamaCare undermine this right? The government has really inserted itself into this relationship, so does Row V Wade go away because nobody has the right to privacy in their relationships with doctors?

    Also NSA meta data collection, The government has justified this as not being a violation of privacy because a 3rd party has a record of the event, that takes away your reasonable expectation of privacy. Isnt this also true of a doctor’s visit? Isnt there almost always a 3rd party record of the events?

    Also – Hillary Clinton’s collapse of support. I think goes back to the 2011 joyful interview on Libya and the death of Qaddafi. I think anyone who saw that public display would conclude that this lady was some kind of psychopath. I’ll post a YouTube link below to refresh your memories. To me this was the point that I began to dread the idea of a Clinton presidency.

    The Iraq chemical weapons claim really was a massive debacle. The primary reason for starting a war turned out to be false. It was not the only reason, but it was the primary reason. I do think the claim was made in good faith, but they got it wrong. With something this serious, a good faith error is terrible. I don’t know of any leader in the defense or intelligence communities who got a serious punishment. Was anyone even fired? Anything controversial coming from American intelligence is can now be questioned with good reason.
