Laura Ingraham came back at Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Monday night after Buttigieg denounced her remarks about child detention centers on her own turf at a FOX News town hall Sunday night. Ingraham, who Buttigieg criticized for calling cages for migrant children “summer camps”, dubbed Mayor Pete a “mild-mannered extremist.” Said Ingraham: “Beyond his Boy Scout demeanor and Mayor Pete shtick, Buttigieg is but another creation of a media apparatus desperate to oust Trump.

Kay Ivey’s Breathtaking Hypocrisy: Signs Near-Total Ban on Abortion – 24 Hours Later Allows Death Row Execution

Governor Kay Ivey Allows Execution of Man Described as Having ‘Significant Cognitive Impairments’ The timing is astonishing. At 9:15 PM Wednesday Alabama’s Republican Governor Kay Ivey tweeted a photo of her signing a bill into law that is effectively a statewide total ban on abortion.

Republicans Confirm Activist Who Thinks Abortion Causes Cancer to Lifetime Federal Judge Appointment

Senate Republicans have just confirmed Wendy Vitter, a highly controversial anti-abortion activist, to a lifetime appointment on the federal bench in Louisiana. Vitter believes abortion causes cancer, and “promoted a brochure that links birth control to ‘violent death,'” as Vanity Fair reports. During her confirmation hearing Vitter refused to say if she believes the U.S. Supreme Court case that codified the concept that “separate but equal” is not equal, was decided correctly. Ironically, perhaps, the 65th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education is Friday. Vitter is more commonly known...
