Hyde Amendment
In U.S. politics, the Hyde Amendment is a legislative provision barring the use of federal funds to pay for abortion except to save the life of the woman, or if the pregnancy arises from incest or rape.

The new law in the US: Do as his "Divine Oneness" (remember? trump looks up to the sky and strikes a man-of-destiny tone, saying:" 'I am the chosen one".) wants or forget about any money or support until you do.

The country of the free....indeed.
Enjoy it while you can.


President Trump IS THE CHOSEN ONE, get over it.

Taxpayer money should not be used to murder babies.


Chosen by who?

In 2016

66 million voted for H. Clinton
63 million voted for trump
100 million didn't vote at all

So trump was elected by a minority and no, we will not get over it any time soon.

THE CHOSEN ONE ????? :S

Considering Trump fans object to being called cultish, using wording reminiscent of religious fervour seems odd.

Did you refer to Obama, Clinton, any previous president as THE CHOSEN ONE too ???

Who then pays for the babies and little children kept in concentration camps along the Mexican border?
Some of them have died, remember?

The children who had their parents taken away, remember?

Or does trump pay for these atrocities out of his own pocket?

As Trumps impeachment trial fades from the collective memory of voters, at least openly, legal scholars have pointed out a rather bad piece news for Roger Stone and perhaps others of Trumps cohort. Many have wonder why Trump has not yet pardon his friend of 30 years when he is facing a hefty stretch in Federal Prison, the simple answer it seems, according to the Constitution, is he can't.

According to Constitutional Experts, the Constitution removes the power of pardon from an Impeached President specifically as it relates to those convicted of crimes connected with his own Impeached conduct, i.e. those crimes in the Articles of Impeachment. Stone falls squarely in this Group as might Flynn, Manaford and others, though they aren't as clearly implicated as Stone.

This also means anyone else who might be indicted or tried over acts connected with the Russia Investigation would also loose the option to be pardon by Trump, Barr made need to take this into account, or perhaps he already has and is now acting to collect some insurance.

Many have already argued that Trump has abused his pardon powers many times by pardoning close associates convicted of clear and serious breaches of the law, in this case if he wants to flex his ego and tries to pardon Stone anyway it would give and even stronger excuse for Democrats to Impeach him and, if they are true to their word, many Republicans would be obligated to support the move to protect the Constitution.
