Not only are MAGA Republicans a threat to our democracy they are a threat to the lives of women as they include "no exception for the life of the mother" in their radical and inhumane anti abortion bills.

So, if a woman in your family has a medical emergency due to her pregnancy, and her life is on the line and she needs an abortion to live, far right wing extremist MAGA Republicans say she cannot have an abortion because of their radical religious beliefs. So the woman will most likely die because radical MAGA Republicans made it law. Are you ok with that?

If these Republicans ever take control of Congress, they will pass a national abortion ban with no exceptions, meaning the lives of women in all 50 states will be at risk. Lindsey Graham is already calling for a national abortion ban and Marco Rubio supports the legislation. 

Red states are already putting the "no exception" abortion ban into their anti abortion laws.

Republicans are forcing women to give birth with their inhumane anti abortion laws and now Trump endorsed MAGA candidates don't want women to even vote or work. The Republican party is clearly anti women.   

This is an excellent article from Vox showing the Republican assault on our democracy explained in 13 charts.


The Republican revolt against democracy, explained in 13 charts
The Trump years revealed a dark truth: The Republican Party is no longer committed to democracy. These charts tell the story.

Trump-backed GOP candidate argued against women voting and working: report

One of Donald Trump's endorsed candidates for Congress once argued against women being able to vote, saying the country had "suffered" since the 19th Amendment gave women the right to vote nationwide.

CNN reported Wednesday, "John Gibbs, who defeated in the primary an incumbent Republican who had voted to impeach Trump, also made comments in the early 2000s praising an organization trying to repeal the 19th Amendment which also argued that women’s suffrage had made the United States into a 'totalitarian state.'"

CNN reported Gibbs founded the "Society for the Critique of Feminism" while a student a Stanford and argued women did not “posess (sic) the characteristics necessary to govern."

Gibbs argued for a patriarchal society, CNN reported, and then tried to cover-up the evidence.

"Gibbs requested the website for the think tank be removed from the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine in 2016, according to a spokesman for the Internet Archive. But CNN’s KFile reviewed it on a different archiving service," the network reported. "CNN’s KFile previously reported that Gibbs’ history of conspiratorial and inflammatory tweets included baselessly accusing Democrats of taking part in satanic rituals and defending a notorious anti-Semitic troll banned by Twitter."

When Trump endorsed Gibbs in November, he described him as a "fabulous talent."

96% of House Republicans voted against legislation that would make it harder to overturn future presidential elections. 96%!

So, Republicans tried to end our democracy by stealing the election from the American people so they could install Donald Trump as their cult leader, and now almost the entire Republican House voted against a bill that would make it harder to overturn future presidential elections.

Republicans are indeed a threat to our democracy because they want to be able to overturn election results they don't like.

That is anti democracy.

The reason is obvious why Republicans voted against this bill because they want to try to overturn the 2024 election when they lose again.   

The Republican vote is on full display proving once again how Republicans are a threat to our democracy.

Lauren Boebert 'can go to Iran' if she wants religion directing the government: Rick Wilson



On Thursday's edition of MSNBC's "Deadline: White House," Lincoln Project co-founder and longtime Republican strategist turned Trump opponent Rick Wilson tore into Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for promoting an extreme version of Christian nationalism that demands the federal government be subordinate to the church.

His remarks came in the middle of a discussion about a new Lincoln Project ad slamming Pennsylvania GOP gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano for his close ties to Gab, a far-right social media platform that has become a nexus of anti-Semitic hatred.

"The thing that bothers me about right Christian nationalism, which they're proud to call themselves, is I mean, this country was founded on the Establishment Clause, the First Amendment clause," said former TIME Magazine editor Rick Stengel. "'Make no law respecting an establishment of religion.' That was a radical notion in the 18th century. Who was it made by? White, Christian men rebelling against an establishing religion, trying to get with the Church of England. This is going back and back, and it's a terrible thing for our country when we should be modernizing and being more progressive and accepting the diversity of the country."

"This is not just on the web sites. This is what elected Republicans say out loud," said anchor Nicolle Wallace, playing several clips of Republicans openly embracing Christian nationalism, including Boebert saying, "The church is supposed to direct the government. The government is not supposed to direct the church."

"She wants to go to Iran, she can. Because that's Iran. She's describing Iran," said Wilson. "They decided there is a little cultural bubble that is separate from the rest of America, that divorces itself from all the values in the founding of this country."

"I wouldn't let them represent a Waffle House," Wilson added. "These are not smart people. But they're persuasive in the group that they — the folks that Tucker [Carlson] spoon-feeds, the sewage pipe he feeds them from, they love it. They think it's chocolate pudding. And they have now decided they're going to separate their culture from the rest of America. It's dangerous to this country. politically and culturally. And it calls into question our survival, frankly."
