A sudden vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court has thrust abortion even further into the spotlight for a deeply divided country facing a divisive election.
Southern Baptist leaders called for prayer for government authorities even as another forecast an âepic battleâ for the high court and the White House.
Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 87, died Friday (Sept. 18) of complications from metastatic cancer after 27 years on the high court. Nominated by President Clinton and confirmed by the Senate in 1993, she received in her death high praise as a justice and colleague from both conservatives and liberals on the high court....

According to Joe Biden's website: ''During the Obama-Biden Administration, the United States made historic strides toward LGBTQ+ equalityâfrom the repeal of âDonât Ask, Donât Tellâ to Bidenâs historic declaration in support of marriage equality on Meet the Press in 2012 to the unprecedented advancement of protections for LGBTQ+ Americans at the federal level.'' https://joebiden.com/lgbtq-policy/
During SC Justice Brett Kavanaughâs confirmation hearings, Kamala Harris tried to get him to call the Obergefell ruling that forced states to recognize same-sex âmarriageâ one of the âgreat moments in the history of the Supreme Court.â
Professor Robert A. J. Gagnon commented; âHow can any Christian vote for such a person or even fail to cast an effective vote to stop her election?'' Gagnon added that a âvote for Biden/Harris is a vote for..cross-sex puberty blockers, mutilation surgery, mandatory Drag Queen Story Hour and âtransgenderâ speech rules, and abortion. Donât be foolish.â https://www.cfnews.org.uk/united-states-joe-biden-picks-planned-parenthood-ally-kamala-harris-as-running-mate/

Cases of election fraud in the United States are exceedingly rare, although some expertsÂ acknowledgeÂ there are slightly higher risks with mail-in balloting when proper security measures are not implemented. A study earlier this yearÂ foundÂ that, on the whole, voting by mail does not benefit one party over another.
Until Thursday, the most prominent, recent examples of voter fraud had been committed by Republicans. In 2019, an election for a North Carolina House seat wasÂ tossed outÂ after a GOP operative illegally collected ballots, and last week, Rep. Steve Watkins (R-Kan.) wasÂ chargedÂ with three felony counts of voter fraud related to the 2019 municipal elections.

Would you have heard of any complaints if these ballots were for Biden?

Justin Levitt, a law professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, said the timing of the announcement alone raises many questions.
"It is the vital duty of government not to announce partial facts and 'potential issues' in pending investigations," Levitt said in an email interview. "Indeed, it's quite improper to announce the fact of an inquiry. And grotesquely improper to announce whom the ballots were cast for, as if that mattered in the investigation."...
The Desperate Dems will not rest until they have stole this election and placed their liberal kind as supreme court judges. They have to steal the election FIRST...good luck.

I wonder if this very short clip of Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men reminds you of anybody, bro?

The quality of a statement isn't a function of the popularity of the speaker. The quality of a statement is a function of its truthfulness, its reflection of critical thinking. In terms of emotional response to popularity, though, what you said does hold water. It just doesn't matter in terms of importance.
The position officially is that barring any major illegality it totally atrocious conduct, Prince Harry cannot be stripped of his HRH title; but he and his wife have basically been told that they should not use it, and to that they have agreed. They do keep the title Duke and Duchess if Sussex, which they can use for official purposes, but it does not voter any particularly official status. It also means that they can use their own income, and are not so much under the restraints that for example, Prince Charles or Prince William would be under. Besides, now Prince Charles is next in line to the throne, then Prince William, then there are 3 children, so Harry, Meghan and little Archie are pushed right out.

It might take some effort to touch on all of your comments.
Mike, their comments matter because they are a very popular couple, perhaps more so here in United States than in England but still you know to say God mentioned by the newspapers.
Adriel, I don't know if Harry needed any pushing or not. His mother back in 2003 told the Scottish people they should go out and vote.
Chris GP, I won't moralize on their behavior, but I will point out that I saw from British sources or from other sources that The Firm (royal family as an institution) wasn't particularly happy with this public display as long as they're holding the title of HRH's and they saw this behavior was somewhat partisan. If they got rid of the HRH titles that could do as they please.
Sadly, this Royal marriage was bad news from day one. Harry fell head over heals with his leftist Hollywood starlet wife. He cannot vote in this forthcoming US election, but his wife, who of course is now a dual US / UK citizen, will vote for the wicked pro-abortion, pro-LGBTQI+, pro-environmentalist, pro-UN, pro-globalist, pro-persecution of Christians, Harris-Biden ticket, (Harris being the real President, Biden merely being the bumbling mouthpiece, the figurehead). Ahab and Jezebel come to mind here in this Presidential duo!! Harry resigned his position as a member of the British Royal Family, and does everything his wife Meghan tells him to. Son Archie will be brought up as a leftist clone in this set up. Sadly, though estranged from them, Harry picked up a lot of nonsense, not only from his wife to whom he is totally devoted, but tragically to his own father, Prince Charles, a dedicated interfaith environmentalist, and even his own dutiful brother, Prince William, who is following a more traditional royal course, as well as his late mother, Princess Diana.Their guest preacher at the wedding was the ultra liberal US lead Episcopalian Bishop Curry. When the present Queen Elizabeth II dies, that is the end of our Royal family as we know it!!
