(FreedomWire.org) – Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert along with other conservatives destroy Democrat Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot after she issued a “call to arms” after the leaked Supreme Court draft that purports to end Roe v. Wade.

As protests have raged outside of the homes of some of the conservative members of the Suprem Court, and as Catholic churches have been vandalized, the embattled Chicago mayor issued her “call to arms.”

“To my friends in the LGBTQ+ community—the Supreme Court is coming for us next. This moment has to be a call to arms,” she said in a tweet.

“We will not surrender our rights without a fight—a fight to victory!” she said.

That was when Rep. Boebert responded to her by simply calling her an “Insurrectionist.”

“Excuse me. Insurrection is your thing. Not ours,” the Chicago mayor said in a tweet.

That tweet triggered Rep. Boebert into hitting the Chicago mayor with a truth bomb.

“6 killed and 18 wounded in your city this past weekend. Nearly 200 murders this year so far. Go fix your city, hack,” she said.

And she was not the only conservative who was furious with Mayor Lightfoot.

“You hate the Second Amendment and firearms. How you gonna fight?” Beth Baumann said.

(FreedomWire.org) – After the leak of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s majority abortion opinion, Republican Rep. Jim Jordan blasted the “radical nature” of the Democratic Party’s reaction to the leak of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion in a landmark case that could overturn Roe V. Wade.

“I think one of the key things we have to do as Republicans, as conservatives, people who are pro-life and support the decision is, we have to point out the radical nature on this debate is the Left. It’s Chuck Schumer and all these Democrats who think you should be able to take the life of an unborn child all the way up until right when they’re about ready to be born,” Jordan told Jimmy Failla in an interview with Fox Across America.

“That is their position. And they always say, ‘these radical conservative Republicans in the Supreme Court’. It’s the Democrats who have the radical position. It was Ralph Northam who said the crazy things he said as governor of Virginia about unborn children and children just born, what they were contemplating doing to kids, to human beings. That’s what we’ve got to be willing to point out when we debate folks, if this plays out over the next several months,” he added.

Politico first obtained a draft of conservative Justice Samuel Alito’s majority decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a controversial Mississippi case which could effectively overturn Roe v. Wade and almost 50 years of legal precedent guaranteeing a woman’s right to an abortion.

According to the document, Justices Clarence Thomas, Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and possibly Chief Justice John Roberts support Justice Alito’s decision.

Should the court vote to overturn the current precedents, abortions would be left for the states to decide. 

“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” Justice Alito wrote in the opinion. “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

Alito also noted that 30 states had active bans on abortion throughout pregnancy at the time Roe was decided and Americans still hold “sharply conflicting views” on the subject.

“Some believe fervently that a human person comes into being at conception and that abortion ends an innocent life. Others feel just as strongly that any regulation of abortion invades a woman’s right to control her own body and prevents women from achieving full equality. Still others in a third group think that abortion should be allowed under some but not all circumstances, and those within this group hold a variety of views about the particular restrictions that should be imposed,” Alito wrote. 

Shortly after the opinion was leaked, thousands of protestors took to the streets in cities across the country to protest what they perceive as the end of Roe.

Hundreds of protestors from both sides of the abortion debate gathered in front of the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., in the days Politico published Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion draft.

According to reporter Alejandro Alvarez, the pro-choice crowd in Washington far outnumbered the pro-life crowd.

(FreedomWire.org) – President Biden is coming under fire for claiming during a 2022 Teacher of the Year ceremony that it’s as though children don’t belong to their parents “when they’re in the classroom.”

“They’re all our children,” he said. “And the reason you’re the teachers of the year is because you recognize that. They’re not somebody else’s children. They’re like yours when they’re in the classroom.”

He also took shots at the increased involvement of parents in their local school districts over concerns about class material that promotes progressive sexual, gender, and racial ideologies. 

“There are too many politicians trying to score political points trying to ban books, even math books. Did you ever think when you’d be teaching you’re going to be worried about book burnings and banning books all because it doesn’t fit somebody’s political agenda?” Biden said.

Former Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe (D) made similar remarks about parental involvement in schools, which ended up playing a big factor in the race.

The Democratic candidate declared during a debate that he will not “let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decisions” because he doesn’t believe “parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”

Republican Glenn Youngkin, now governor, immediately jumped on his then-opponent’s response, saying, “You believe school systems should tell children what to do. I believe parents should be in charge of their kids’ education.”

While most conservatives blasted the president for the remarks, some cheered on Biden’s comment given its electoral implications.
