WDAM – Mississippi asks appeals court to reconsider abortion ruling

Mississippi asks appeals court to reconsider abortion ruling

Mississippi is asking a federal appeals court to reconsider a ruling that said the state’s ban on most abortions at 15 weeks of pregnancy is unconstitutional.

The ruling was issued Dec. 13 by a panel of three judges on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and Republican Gov. Phil Bryant said the next day that he wants the state to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Papers filed Friday are an in-between step.

MBJ – Bill Crawford: Sticking with Trump risky for conservative, moral Republicans

Liberal government spending plus stimulative Federal Reserve policies, pushed by Trump, to keep interest rates artificially low and liquidity high are the sugar fueling this economic high, not real, sustainable economic strength.

Nothing conservative about this either.

That’s why 23 conservative Republican senators voted against the deficit busting spending bills.

That reveals the sole alternative. Twenty conservative, moral Republicans serving in the U.S. Senate would have to find the fortitude to join with Democratic senators to convict Trump in the upcoming Senate impeachment trial, thereby replacing this not really conservative, not very moral president with Vice President Mike Pence.

Contrary to Trump, Pence is a true balance-the-budget conservative and practicing Christian with a moral compass. He could return the nation to a sane Reagan-like uplifting path and save us from Trump’s destructive path.
