CNN Guest Suggests ‘Federal Abortion Force’ Could Operate in Texas

That would NOT go over well in The Lone Star State.

Published

The latest Supreme Court decision on an abortion law in Texas has elevated the national political hum to a mild roar, as one of the right’s most sacred fights gets a rare boost in a world whose overall sentiment is sprinting in the other direction.

So, as the Lone Star State law goes into effect, the punditry is drumming along too, making all manner of wild and un-retractable statements about what comes next.

On CNN, one guests even went so far as to suggest that some federal “abortion force” could soon be occupying Texas.

The Nation justice correspondent Elie Mystal on Friday urged President Joe Biden to create a “federal force” to provide free abortions in Texas to combat the state’s new abortion law.

Mystal argued on CNN’s “New Day” that the federal force would serve as a “workaround” the Texas law.

“Now, as many people have figured out, Texas’ law is quirky, and the quirk is its kind of depraved bounty system which takes the enforcement power of their abortion ban away from the state, so, like, Greg Abbott or Ken Paxton or whoever isn’t out there enforcing the law, and puts it in the hands of private citizens,” Mystal outlined. “Anybody living in the country can sue anybody in Texas for providing or aiding or abetting abortion services, and if they win that lawsuit, they get $10,000. That is a private civil action.”

Then came the wildest part of the conversation:

“That’s the only enforcement mechanism for the Texas law,” he continued. “Well, that can cut both ways. And if Democrats are willing to get creative about it, and if Joe Biden is willing to do everything necessary to protect women in Texas, well, guess who has qualified immunity from civil lawsuits? Federal employees. So what Biden needs to do is, via executive order, create a federal force of doctors protected, clothed in the protection of the state, which would protect them through qualified immunity from private civil actions. Send them to Texas to counsel and protect women’s privacy rights, and if they want to provide some medical procedures in the course of protecting people’s constitutional rights, they can do that as well.”

America does not have a great history with arguing about states rights, and given the current political climate here in the United States, this Texas vs. The Country debate could get heated…and quickly.

Giuliani Jilted: Fox News Bans Rudy and Son from Appearing on Network

This, after Rudy was integral in bringing Fox News to the mainstream.

Published

on

In the latest bit of fallout from Donald Trump’s first term as President, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has been banned by Fox News.

Giuliani, who served as the personal attorney for Donald Trump during much of his presidency, is currently in legal limbo, having lost his ability to practice law in New York while facing a rather sizable defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems.

Now, as many continue to wonder how much influence Trump will have on the future of the Republican Party, Giuliani has taken a major publicity hit.

Prior to a scheduled appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Sept. 11, “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Pete Hegseth apparently called the former New York City mayor the night before and apologized, telling him he had been canceled from their guest list.

The decision was particularly troubling for Rudy.

A source close to the former New York City mayor told Playbook that Giuliani was upset by the decision because he had “done a big favor” for Fox Corp. founder and Chairman Rupert Murdoch.

“He was instrumental in getting Fox on Time Warner so it could be watched in New York City,” the source told Playbook.

Giuliani’s son Andrew is also reportedly banned from the network, although no official reasoning has been given for either action.

CNN’s Cuomo Accused of Heinous Sexual Assault, Complete with Tone-Deaf Apology

As of this writing, Cuomo is still employed by CNN.

Published

on

Just months after his brother finally succumbed to heavy public pressure to resign as Governor of New York, Chris Cuomo is now facing similar accusations of sexual misconduct stemming from  workplace incident in 2005.

Andrew Cuomo, the disgraced Empire State Lawmaker, was accused by no less than 9 women of sexual abuse, assault, and harassment during his time in the governor’s mansion.  During the public fallout, it was determined that he had reached out to his brother Chris Cuomo, the CNN anchor, in order to pool PR resources – something that the younger Cuomo apologized for on-air.

One has to wonder what sort of apology is on the horizon now.

In a guest essay for the New York Times, former executive producer Shelley Ross outlined an incident where Cuomo, who came under fire this year for giving private advice to his brother New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo during his sexual harassment scandal, squeezed the cheek of her buttock without her permission in 2005. She also produced an email where Chris Cuomo appeared to admit to the incident and apologize for his behavior.

“At the time, I was the executive producer of an ABC entertainment special, but I was Mr. Cuomo’s executive producer at ‘Primetime Live’ just before that,” she wrote. “I was at the party with my husband, who sat behind me on an ottoman sipping his Diet Coke as I spoke with work friends. When Mr. Cuomo entered the Upper West Side bar, he walked toward me and greeted me with a strong bear hug while lowering one hand to firmly grab and squeeze the cheek of my buttock.”

Cuomo’s apology email has also been heavily criticized, as it appears to show more defense to Ross’ husband than to her.

Cuomo, who was 34 at the time of the alleged incident, asked Ross to pass along an apology to her “very good and noble husband,” and also “I apologize to you as well, for even putting you in su]ch a position.” He added he would remember his lesson the next time he was happy to see her.
