Between May 25 and September 17, 1787, delegates from each of the United States' thirteen states assembled in Philadelphia for an event we now call the Constitutional Convention. What do we know about the moment of the United States Constitution's creation? What was happening around the Convention, and what issues were Americans discussing and debating as the Convention's delegates met? Mary Sarah Bilder, an award-winning historian and the Founders Professor of Law at Boston College Law School, joins us to investigate the context of the United States Constitution's creation with details from her book, Female Genius: Eliza Harriot and George Washington at the Dawn of the Constitution.

Criminal venue. The perceived abuse of English criminal venue law was one of the enumerated grievances in the United States Declaration of Independence, which accused George III of the United Kingdom of "transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offenses." Article Three of the United States Constitution provides: "Trial of all Crimes . . . shall be held in the State where the said Crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any State, the Trial shall be at such Place or Places as the Congress may by Law have directed." The "where the said Crimes shall have been committed" language refers to the locus delicti, and a single crime may often give rise to several constitutionally permissible venues. "he locus delicti must be determined from the nature of the crime alleged and the location of the act or acts constituting it." Thus, venue may be constitutionally permissible even if an individual defendant was never personally present in the relevant state. For example, conspiracy may be prosecuted wherever the agreement occurred or wherever any overt act was committed. For the purposes of constitutional venue, the boundaries of the states are questions of law to be determined by the judge, but the location of the crime is a question of fact to be determined by the jury. The venue provision of Article 3 (regulating the location of the trial) is distinct from the Vicinage Clause of the Sixth Amendment (regulating the geography from which the jury pool is selected). The unit of the former is the state; the unit of the later is the state and judicial district. Unlike judicial districts under the Vicinage Clause, consistent with Article III, Congress may "provide a place of trial where none was provided when the offense was committed, or change the place of trial after the commission of the offense." A change of venue is the legal term for moving a trial to a new location. In high-profile matters, a change of venue may occur to move a jury trial away from a location where a fair and impartial jury may not be possible due to widespread publicity about a crime and its defendants to another community in order to obtain jurors who can be more objective in their duties. This change may be to different towns, and across the other sides of states or, in some extremely high-profile federal cases, to other states. Forum non conveniens (Latin for "an inconvenient forum") (FNC) is a mostly common law legal doctrine through which a court acknowledges that another forum or court where the case might have been brought is a more appropriate venue for a legal case, and transfers the case to such a forum. A change of venue might be ordered, for example, to transfer a case to a jurisdiction within which an accident or incident underlying the litigation occurred and where all the witnesses reside. As a doctrine of the conflict of laws, forum non conveniens applies between courts in different countries and between courts in different jurisdictions in the same country. Forum non conveniens is not applicable between counties or federal districts within a state. A concern often raised in applications of the doctrine is forum shopping, or picking a court merely to gain an advantage in the proceeding. This concern is balanced against the public policy of deferring to a plaintiff's choice of venue in claims where there may be more than one appropriate jurisdiction. The underlying principles, such as basing respect given to foreign courts on reciprocal respect or comity, also apply in civil law systems in the form of the legal doctrine of lis alibi pendens. Forum non conveniens is not exclusive to common law nations: the maritime courts of the Republic of Panama, although not a common law jurisdiction, also have such power under more restrained conditions. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/law-school/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/law-school/support

Criminal procedure (2023): Fair trial

Law School

Criminal procedure is the adjudication process of the criminal law. While criminal procedure differs dramatically by jurisdiction, the process generally begins with a formal criminal charge with the person on trial either being free on bail or incarcerated, and results in the conviction or acquittal of the defendant. Criminal procedure can be either in the form of inquisitorial or adversarial criminal procedure. Basic rights. Currently, in many countries with a democratic system and the rule of law, criminal procedure puts the burden of proof on the prosecution – that is, it is up to the prosecution to prove that the defendant is guilty beyond any reasonable doubt, as opposed to having the defense prove that they are innocent, and any doubt is resolved in favor of the defendant. This provision, known as the presumption of innocence, is required, for example, in the 46 countries that are members of the Council of Europe, under Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights, and it is included in other human rights documents. However, in practice it operates somewhat differently in different countries. Such basic rights also include the right for the defendant to know what offense he or she has been arrested for or is being charged with, and the right to appear before a judicial official within a certain time of being arrested. Many jurisdictions also allow the defendant the right to legal counsel and provide any defendant who cannot afford their own lawyer with a lawyer paid for at the public expense. A fair trial is a trial which is "conducted fairly, justly, and with procedural regularity by an impartial judge". Various rights associated with a fair trial are explicitly proclaimed in Article 10 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution, and Article 6 of the European Convention of Human Rights, as well as numerous other constitutions and declarations throughout the world. There is no binding international law that defines what is not a fair trial; for example, the right to a jury trial and other important procedures vary from nation to nation. Fair trial rights. The right to a fair trial has been defined in numerous regional and international human rights instruments. It is one of the most extensive human rights and all international human rights instruments enshrine it in more than one article. The right to a fair trial is one of the most litigated human rights and substantial case law that has been established on the interpretation of this human right. Despite variations in wording and placement of the various fair trial rights, international human rights instruments define the right to a fair trial in broadly the same terms. The aim of the right is to ensure the proper administration of justice. As a minimum the right to fair trial includes the following fair trial rights in civil and criminal proceedings: the right to be heard by a competent, independent and impartial tribunal, the right to a public hearing, the right to be heard within a reasonable time, the right to counsel, and, the right to interpretation. States may limit the right to a fair trial or derogate from the fair trial rights only under circumstances specified in the human rights instruments. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/law-school/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/law-school/support

The Congress shall have power “To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries” Article I Section 8 Clause 8 United States Constitution. These words are embodied in the United States Code, giving rights to inventors and authors alike for their writings and discoveries. As one can appreciate, a few more stipulations, criteria and interpretations have been associated with this one clause over the past 200+ years, but it stills forms the bedrock of patent and copyright protection.The History of Patents For a moment, let's focus on patents. Patents are not a new concept. The Parliament of England, in 1624, passed the Statute of Monopolies, endowing inventors with the sole right to their inventions for 14 years. And before that, the Senate of Venice passed a patent statute in 1474 providing protection against potential infringers, albeit mostly in the field of glassmaking. It is hard to believe that the framers of the Constitution predicted how valuable intangible rights embraced by patents and copyrights would become. But they clearly recognized that protecting these products gives their producers an incentive to create more and thus stimulates greater activity.The kings of industry have long understood the value of patents. Thomas Edison is affiliated with 1,093 patents. The Ford Motor company has 79,017 patents as of August 2022, making up some 28,000 patent families (related patents). And since 1920, IBM has received more than 150,000 patents. Clearly patents are valued by larger companies for many reasons. But what about a small business concern? Does the protection a patent offers justify the cost? The Power of Patent ProtectionPatents provide what is called a negative right. That means the inventor of a granted patent has right to stop others from making, using, selling or importing that which is described in the claims appending the end of the patent. They do not create any sort of positive right for the owner to make, use, sell or import the same patented technology. Indeed, to practice one's patent may require the inventor to license the patent of another. Let's consider that “right” from the perspective of a small business. The right to “stop” another means the right to sue. An inventor, or the assignee of the invention, can file a suit in federal court asserting infringement of a patent. The average cost of patent litigation through trial is in the area of $2 million according to the American Intellectual Property Law Association. Damages vary, but statistically, 48% of awards are less than the average cost of litigation. Interestingly, 43% of verdicts result in damages for more than double the average cost of litigation. Regardless, the risk is clearly apparent. For a small business, waging a court battle is often a bet-the-company proposition and most companies are not willing to roll those dice. Why Pursuing Patents MattersSo, if you accept that most small companies will not entertain the risk of filing a patent suit, why spend valuable resources to secure patent rights in an innovation? One reason is validation. Patents are a means by which an independent third party examines and confirms that the stated innovation in the patent application has utility (it is useful), is novel (new) and is non-obvious (not common sense). The patent office, despite all its challenges, examines the technical art to ascertain new and useful innovations and awards patents accordingly. That third-party validation translates to value—value that can be realized upon exit or a change of control. Company valuation is not a trivial topic, and it is certainly not centered on patent valuation or even intellectual property (IP) value generally. I

Saturday was Constitution Day. I'm Peter Serefine with today's Liberty Minute. Albert Einstein said, “the strength of the Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it.” Einstein said "each citizen," not citizens at large. On September 17th, 1787, thirty-nine men signed the United States Constitution. The grand experiment of a representative democracy framed as a Constitutional Republic began 235 years ago. The average Constitution tried in other countries only lasts 15 years. So clearly, the United States Constitution is remarkable. I have handed out thousands of pocket Constitutions, and I can't believe how often someone says, "I've never read it" or "I don't really know what's in it." Be determined to defend the Constitution.

The Historic Groom Mine & Residence has been owned an operated by us, the Sheahan family, since 1889. Rich in several precious metals including lead, silver and gold, we diligently mined the land, paving our way in Nevada mining history. In time, the Groom Mine became our foundation, livelihood and home. In the 1940s, the U.S. Government set their sights on southern Nevada as prime real estate for an aircraft testing facility. Slowly, the U.S. Government drove every mine in the vicinity out of the area- except for our family, who held and continues to hold six patented mining claims dating back to 1864 and 15 unpatented claims. After Congress passed the General Mining Act of 1872, President Ulysses S. Grant not only signed the White Lake and Conception Patents, but in writing, granted us the “exclusive right to enjoyment of all the lands within the boundaries, forever.” Due to the stature of such claims, our family was able to remain living on and continue mining our land. On June 23, 1954 at approximately 12 p.m., the heart and soul of our property, the mill, was bombed causing more than $1 million in damages. The destruction was devastating, as we watched decades of hard work, dedication and history burst into flames. The wreckage forced us to uproot our home, relocate and re-start our careers elsewhere. Less than a year later, the USAF acquired the land just north of the Groom property and established an Air Force Base, known today as Area 51. Since, we have been granted limited access to our property.While we've had the ability to spend time visiting and repairing a land that holds invaluable history, we've faced many challenges in trying to work with the USAF and other government entities. Such challenges can be only described as criminal acts by our government including:• The bombing of the Groom Mine mill site.• Shooting of the Groom Mine campsite by airplanes.• Holding family members at gunpoint on numerous occasions. Family members have experienced fear and mental anguish from this.• Nuclear fallout and contamination from the aboveground nuclear tests. These tests caused radiation burns and sickness among some family members.• Illegally seizing our access road in 1978.This road was held illegally by the Air Force for six years until the land withdraw was approved by Congress.• Invasion of privacy at Groom Mine and constant monitoring of our activities.• Illegally detaining family members.• Threatened use of deadly force by security forces.• Creating obstacles preventing the operation of Groom Mine, causing lost opportunities for business dealings.• Complete denial of access to a land that, under the United States Constitution, we have every right to access.• Illegal and periodic searches of our vehicles and persons prior to gaining access to our own property.• Coerced signings of Inadvertent Disclosure Statements.• Telling our prospective business partners that they would not be allowed to operate the mine and therefore no business deals have been possible.• The constant threat of Condemnation, including telling Groom Mine owners that if we bring an outside company to run the mine, the Air Force will condemn the Groom Mine.

It's been called “The Miracle at Philadephia.”  Though most of us, we hope, know our Constitution was an experiment in self-government, do we really understand how revolutionary it was in the late 18th century to create such a government or the struggles endured to see it signed and ratified?  The Founders believed for this experiment to succeed, the document itself wasn't enough.  The principles contained therein have to be in the heart and minds of Americans.  In that way, those principles give the document life and animate it.  According to our special guest, Dr. Jeffrey Sikkenga, Executive Director of the Ashbrook Center, we must reanimate those principles each generation and relearn them.  Our American story is complex.  It has heroes and villains, success and failure.  At the heart of it is a document signed in 1787 that gave life to our country.  Join Dr. Sikkenga and our all-star panel for this enlightening discussion in how we will continue to reanimate the United States Constitution.  Check out the Ashbrook Center's new website: AmericanFounding.org.

Following the recent abduction and murder of Eliza Fletcher in Memphis, we talk to Amy Robbins about how women can stay safe — and stylish — while exercising. As an avid runner with a few bad experiences on her runs, Amy wanted the ability to train for a marathon wherever she wanted to, even in the wee hours, without fearing for her safety, so she obtained her license to carry. Soon after, in 2017, she created Alexo Athletica because no product existed on the market that met her need to feel fashionable while carrying in active wear.

Rebel Civics Academy is a collection of Rebel Civics episodes that are uniquely tailored to provide civics education to middle and high school students. To protect their identities, students in Rebel Civics Academy use pseudonyms and avatars. In this episode we have four student participants, ranging from 6th to 12th grades. This episode is about the Constitution of the United States and meets the federal Constitution Day educational requirements. An overview of the Constitution is taught using a slide presentation with student interaction. We cover the purpose of government, as well as the purpose of the Constitution, the basis of its existence, document organization, key delegated powers, and limitations imposed by it. This episode includes the concepts of Federalism, State vs Federal government authority, together with some history, all of which is based on the Founder's view of how our union ought to be arranged. The class meets the requirements of the September 17 Constitution Day federal mandate on all schools that accept federal funding. Public Law 108-447 (2004) and a 2005 Department of Education mandate requires that “Each educational institution that receives Federal funds for a fiscal year shall hold an educational program on the United States Constitution on September 17 of such year for the students served by the educational institution." Many schools do not conform to this requirement. This episode may be used by teachers and school administrators to meet the federal requirement. It can also be useful to parents, self-study students, private schools, and home school collaboratives. About the Instructor Keith Bessette has taught the Constitution in local schools to students ranging from 6th to 12th grades, in both public and private schools in two Florida counties. Keith is host of the Rebel Civics series on Unsafe Space, which covers a wide variety of civics topics. Backed up by historical fact and source material, the Rebel Civics series analyses current events through the philosophical lens of individualism and individual rights, articulating how the Founders of these united States might resolve many of today's ills if they were alive today. Keith is also host of the Liberty Solutions audio podcast focused on the Constitution. He is also a writer for UncoverDC. Formerly, Keith was an electrical and systems engineer with 30 years experience designing communications equipment for military aircraft, surface ship, and submarine platforms. He holds a BSEE from University of Maryland with a concentration in astronomy and astrophysics.

Civil procedure: Federal Rules of Civil Procedure: Jurisdiction + Subject-matter + Federal question + Diversity

Subject-matter jurisdiction (also called jurisdiction ratione materiae) is the authority of a court to hear cases of a particular type of cases relating to a specific subject matter. For instance, bankruptcy court only has the authority to hear bankruptcy cases. Subject-matter jurisdiction must be distinguished from personal jurisdiction, which is the power of a court to render a judgment against a particular defendant, and territorial jurisdiction, which is the power of the court to render a judgment concerning events that have occurred within a well-defined territory. Unlike personal or territorial jurisdiction, lack of subject-matter jurisdiction cannot be waived. A judgment from a court that did not have subject-matter jurisdiction is forever a nullity. To decide a case, a court must have a combination of subject (subjectam) and either personal (personam) or territorial (locum) jurisdiction. Subject-matter jurisdiction, personal or territorial jurisdiction, and adequate notice are the three most fundamental constitutional requirements for a valid judgment. In United States law, federal question jurisdiction is a type of subject-matter jurisdiction that gives United States federal courts the power to hear civil cases where the plaintiff alleges a violation of the United States Constitution, federal law, or a treaty to which the United States is a party. The federal question jurisdiction statute is codified at 28 U.S.C. § 1331. The district courts shall have original jurisdiction of all civil actions arising under the Constitution, laws, or treaties of the United States. — 28 U.S.C. § 1331. In the law of the United States, diversity jurisdiction is a form of subject-matter jurisdiction that gives U.S. federal courts the power to hear lawsuits that do not involve a federal question. For a U.S. federal court to have diversity jurisdiction over a lawsuit, two conditions must be met. First, there must be "diversity of citizenship" between the parties, meaning the plaintiffs must be citizens of different U.S. states than the defendants. Second, the lawsuit's "amount in controversy" must be more than $75,000. If a lawsuit does not meet these two conditions, U.S. federal courts will normally lack the power to hear it unless it involves a federal question, and the lawsuit would need to be heard in state court instead. The United States Constitution, in Article 3, Section 2, grants Congress the power to permit federal courts to hear diversity cases through legislation authorizing such jurisdiction. The provision was included because the Framers of the Constitution were concerned that when a case is filed in one state, and it involves parties from that state and another state, the state court might be biased toward the party from that state. Congress first exercised that power and granted federal trial circuit courts diversity jurisdiction in the Judiciary Act of 1789. Diversity jurisdiction is currently codified at 28 U.S.C. § 1332. In 1969, the American Law Institute explained in a 587-page analysis of the subject that diversity is the "most controversial" type of federal jurisdiction, because it "lays bare fundamental issues regarding the nature and operation of our federal union." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/law-school/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/law-school/support

It's Wednesday, August 17th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark First anniversary of America's withdrawal from Afghanistan Monday marked the one-year anniversary since the Taliban seized control of Afghanistan's capital and instituted strict Islamic law on the country. International Christian Concern released a situational overview on Afghan Christian minorities. Most Christians in Afghanistan converted out of Islam. Such conversions are banned by the Taliban. Even allegations of conversion can lead to death.  Christians there have to hide from the Taliban or try to escape. Those who stay become internally displaced persons and don't even receive the humanitarian aid designated for them because of their isolation. Those who escape often face discrimination in neighboring Pakistan, Iran, or Turkey. Please pray for our suffering Afghan brothers and sisters in Christ. Psalm 17:11-13 says, “They have now surrounded us in our steps; they have set their eyes, crouching down to the earth, as a lion is eager to tear his prey . . . Arise, O LORD, Confront him, cast him down; deliver my life from the wicked." Pentecostal Cuban Church upset with perversion promotion The Pentecostal Christian Church of Cuba recently renounced its membership in the Cuban Council of Churches. The denomination denounced the council's resolution to promote sexually perverted lifestyles. Cuba's Communist Party uses the council to control official religious activity in the country and silence free evangelical churches that dissent. Other denominations in Cuba are expected to withdraw from the council and will likely face harassment from the Cuban dictator.   Acts 5:29 says, “We ought to obey God rather than men.”  Biden backed down: Allows religious schools in lunch program Last Friday, the Biden administration granted an exception for religious schools from its interpretation of Title IX.  Title IX bans discrimination on the basis of sex in educational institutions. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently interpreted Title IX to include a ban on discrimination against people living sexually perverted lifestyles. This meant the Food and Drug Administration would no longer fund lunch programs for schools that do not accept such lifestyles. In response, Grant Park Christian Academy in Florida sued the Biden administration for violating their religious liberty. New guidance from the FDA now grants all religious schools an exception from the Title IX interpretation. Idaho Supreme Court greenlights two pro-life laws Last Friday, the Idaho Supreme Court ruled that two anti-abortion laws can go into effect, rejecting a lawsuit from Planned Parenthood. One of the laws prohibits abortions on babies with detectable heartbeats and has a private enforcement mechanism. The other law is an abortion ban triggered by the overturning of Roe v. Wade. The ruling stated, “In Dobbs, the Supreme Court held that the United States Constitution does not explicitly or implicitly contain a right to abortion and returned the ‘profound moral question' of abortion to the ‘people and their elected representatives.'” Trump-endorsed candidates did well Candidates endorsed by former President Donald Trump won their primaries in state and federal races last week following the FBI's raid on Trump's Mar-a-Lago home in Florida. Breitbart reports Trump's endorsement record stands at 192-11. Of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump after the January 6 riots, seven lost their primaries or chose to retire. After blasting Trump, Liz Cheney lost big In addition, the Trump-backed Wyoming challenger in GOP Primary, Harriet Hageman, trounced one high-profile impeacher, Wyoming Republican Liz Cheney, in a dramatic 59%-36% defeat yesterday. Cheney's impeachment vote in January 2021 resulted in a censure from the Wyoming GOP and county delegations. She was also criticized by Republican leadership for agreeing to be the vice chairwoman of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot, as well as arguing the 2020 election wasn't stolen, reports the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle. Listen to Cheney's concession speech from last night. CHENEY: “Two years ago, I won this primary with 73% of the vote. I could easily have done the same again. The path was clear. But it would have required that I go along with President Trump's lie about the 2020 election. It would have required that I enable his ongoing efforts to unravel our democratic system and attack the foundations of our republic. That was a path I could not and would not take.

Life Matters
285: Dobbs' Recognition of Constitutional State Authority to Protect Life

Life Matters

In this episode of Life Matters, Commissioner Johnston examines the meaning of the right to life. Why does this have to be about the law? Where did this right to life come from? Did it begin at America's founding, or is it a deeper, more widely recognized, universal truth  - a self evident truth - that everyone should take the time and interest to deliberate?   The American founders strongly felt this was so. They proclaimed to the world that they would form a new form of government that appealed to this universal, higher law, view of life and society. Now, with the Dobbs decision, the entire issue is laid at our feet. Individual states which comprise the United States, are now free to exercise the explicit God-given and constitutionally-explained authority to protect or take lives within their own borders. If a state determines that a human life can legally be taken within its borders it is authorizing capital punishment. The state itself must outline the specific rules and procedures to be followed so that that individuals life has had the due process of law. A trial, with evidence, with adequate defense, with right to appeal - the law must protect even that person's life from being taken unjustly.  Similarly, if a human life is taken outside of the law (extra-judicially) the state must also outline how and under what circumstances the appropriate protective measure can be taken. For this reason, each state has proscribed various forms of homicide - levels of severity, and appropriate punishments for these extrajudicial killings.   The Dobbs decision, in overturning Roe v. Wade, which licensed abortionists to kill at any time they decided, now gives the authority over life and death back to the states, from which it had been taken. Each state now will determine how a child in the womb is to be protected: at what stage of pregnancy, what standards of evidence, what conditions, who is authorized to take this child's life.  Each of these determinations will now be set state by state. In many states, these measures are being contemplated in the summer of 2022.  Perhaps, most importantly, the November elections of 2022 will determine the nature of the lawmakers who will make these laws. Federal government lawmakers - the Congress and Senate, are already trying to prohibit individual states from exercising this authority. Yet, this is an authority granted, in fact, instructed by the United States Constitution. Dobbs, rather than ending the abortion debate, has brought it home to every citizen. They must determine whom they should elect. They must determine what ideas should guide the lawmakers within their own states, and given the approach of Planned Parenthood et al., even local communities and their elected officials will be addressing the abortion mentality in their counties, cities, and schools. The elections of 2022 are critical for enacting the laws which will reflect the self-evident truth: that every innocent human life should be protected under the law. Such laws must be enacted if that law is in fact the law of a just government. “To ensure these rights, governments are instituted among men.” The laws and elections of 2022 are critical. Brian gives in-depth insights into the danger of being mislead at this moment, misled by those who would lie and misrepresent the killing of human babies.  The state of Indiana offers just one example. There, lawmakers asserted SB 1 would protect babies in Indiana, but in fact the deceitful and misleading language which they presented was craftily worded and specifically designed to allow abortions. Brian reminds listeners and readers to consult the works of many insightful authors on this subject such as Orwell and Kafka, but in particular C.S. Lewis, and his book, the Screwtape Letters.  In Screwtape, Lewis describes the genuinely demonic twisting of language and meanings and feelings to accomplish truly evil ends. “We are now in a very serious battle of ideas, and ideas have consequences,” says Brian. “This battle of ideas is not far away, and we often considers ideas as removed and far from physical reality, but the battle is now on us. And we must apply ourselves to these elections and these laws as if the sanctity of every life is at stake, because in fact it is.”

Alright, back to China… they’re not happy with Nancy Pelosi… who is though? https://www.foxnews.com/world/china-furious-pelosi-lands-taiwan-promises-all-necessary-measures-defend-itself China furious after Pelosi lands in Taiwan, promises 'all necessary measures' to defend itself The People's Republic of China released a lengthy statement Tuesday condemning the arrival of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the island of Taiwan. China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs published the statement, in which the Chinese government accuses Pelosi, D-Calif., of undermining U.S.-China relations and encouraging the "separatist forces for ‘Taiwan independence.’" Pelosi landed in Taiwan late Tuesday night local time, making her the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit the island since Newt Gingrich in 1997. "This is a serious violation of the one-China principle and the provisions of the three China-U.S. joint communiqués. It has a severe impact on the political foundation of China-U.S. relations, and seriously infringes upon China's sovereignty and territorial integrity," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs wrote. "There is but one China in the world, Taiwan is an inalienable part of China's territory, and the Government of the People's Republic of China is the sole legal government representing the whole of China." The People's Republic of China has long claimed sovereignty over Taiwan and the Taiwan Strait, the relatively narrow strip of ocean between the island of Taiwan and the Chinese mainland. The Chinese military has frequently sent planes into the area, testing Taiwan's air defense zone. The USS Ronald Reagan and a strike group are currently positioned near Taiwan after they left a port in Singapore on Tuesday. A Navy spokesperson confirmed the news but said it was a planned trip. Pelosi is traveling with a House delegation that includes Democratic Reps. Gregory Meeks of New York, Mark Takano of California, Suzan DelBene of Washington, Raja Krishnamoorthi of Illinois and Andy Kim of New Jersey. Here’s more from Fox News on this developing situation: China issues new threats after Pelosi lands in Taiwan-Play 0:52-2:30 The world awaits… it’s going to be interesting to see what our Lord has in store through this situation developing in Taiwan… Let’s shift our eyes back to the U.S. as Idaho is in the news… https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/justice/doj-sues-idaho-over-state-law-near-total-abortion-ban DOJ sues Idaho over law imposing 'near-total ban' on abortion The Justice Department filed a lawsuit against Idaho over the state's law banning abortion after six weeks, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Tuesday. The legal filing marks the first time President Joe Biden's Justice Department launched a challenge against a state for abortion restrictions since the landmark June 24 Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization decision overturned a half-century of abortion access precedent, which the president decried as a "realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the Supreme Court." The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho, contends that the federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act preempts the state law. The federal law requires physicians to perform medically stabilizing abortions in an emergency. Garland explained there are circumstances in which abortion is "necessary" if a patient is undergoing an unstable condition during pregnancy. Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta, who leads the reproductive rights task force, said the DOJ is seeking a declaratory judgment that Idaho's law "violates the supremacy clause of the United States Constitution and is preempted by federal law where it conflicts with EMTALA." The federal agency's lawsuit noted that the state has "passed a near-absolute ban on abortion,” which after taking effect on Aug. 25 will make it a criminal offense to perform an abortion “in all but extremely narrow circumstances.” Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra also released a statement following the DOJ's announcement, saying the department will continue to partner with the DOJ to enforce federal laws protecting healthcare "including abortions." Meanwhile, the Idaho Supreme Court is slated to hear arguments Wednesday on challenges over its near-total abortion ban, according to the Idaho Press. Attorneys for Idaho will seek to protect three separate restrictive abortion laws passed by the state. Ladies and gentleman, please keep our state in your prayers as a legal battle takes center stage. We wish to see this abomination of abortion brought down in Idaho, and this would be a huge step. https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/01/health/california-newsom-state-of-emergency-monkeypox/index.html Elsewhere in the US, California and Illinois declare states of emergency over monkeypox outbreak This is from CNN. The governors of California and Illinois declared states of emergency to bolster their monkeypox vaccination efforts as the virus spreads nationwide. Monday's declarations come as more than 5,800 probable or confirmed cases of monkeypox have been reported in the US. California had more than 800 cases Tuesday, while Illinois had more than 500, according to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While the World Health Organization has declared the monkeypox outbreak a public health emergency of international concern, the Biden administration has not issued a nationwide public health emergency declaration. California is the third and largest state to issue a statewide declaration related to the disease. New York was the first to do so. California's move allows emergency medical services personnel throughout the state to administer FDA-approved monkeypox vaccines, expanding the pool of people able to inoculate residents against the virus even as a vaccine shortage persists. Illinois' declaration also will make more resources available to combat the virus, Gov. J.B. Pritzker said. The Chicago and state public health departments announced Illinois' first presumptive case June 2. Monkeypox is a poxvirus, related to smallpox, that usually causes pimple- or blister-like lesions, as well as flu-like symptoms such as fever, headaches, muscle aches, chills and respiratory symptoms, according to the CDC. And guys, great news, I found out a great way to avoid Monkey Pox, here it is… don’t be gay! Be heterosexual, and find a godly man or woman to marry, and you’re home free! Yes I realize it’s probably not that simple. But anyways… California has received more than 61,000 vaccine doses so far and distributed more than 25,000, according to the governor's news release. Los Angeles County has received its own vaccine allocation, and state officials said California will make additional allocations in the coming weeks. Last week, Sodom… oh wait I mean, San Francisco became the first major US city to declare a local health emergency on monkeypox. Now hidden towards the bottom of CNN’s article is this following paragraph: “A large number of cases in this outbreak have been in men who have sex with men, including gay and bisexual men, and public health officials are focusing their prevention efforts on this group. The virus is not unique to this community, but the nature of its close-contact spread has led to a disproportionate impact.” Following the emergency declaration in California, Equality California, a major LGBT rights nonprofit organization, applauded the governor's move, noting in a statement that the virus "continues to disproportionately affect gay, bisexual and queer men here in California and across the country."
