Missouri's last abortion clinic can stay open -- for now

Source: cnn

A Missouri judge granted a preliminary injunction in favor of the state's last abortion clinic -- temporarily preventing the state from becoming the first in the country with no access to legal abortion.

Judge Michael Stelzer's ruling Monday allows the lone clinic -- Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region -- to keep performing abortions while a legal battle unfolds between the clinic and state health officials.

Last month, the clinic sued Gov. Michael Parson and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services over the state's refusal to renew its license.

That license was supposed to expire on May 31. But the judge issued a temporary order preventing the license from expiring until he heard arguments from both sides.

Washington Post-Analysis: The election-defining Biden-can-win narrative just got a big boost

This is further proof that Joe Biden is the most electable candidate that the Democrats have

In February, we looked at Gallup’s approval rating polling for 2018, picking out an interesting detail. Of all of the states that Trump won in 2016, nowhere was he viewed less favorably than in Texas. His approval in the state was 39 percent over the course of the year, the sort of number that doesn’t slot easily into sentences like “Trump coasted to victory given his ___ percent approval rating in the state.” Perhaps something more like: “Trump’s ___ percent approval rating in the state was just too much to overcome.”

I mean, it’s not as though 2016 and 2018 were blowouts in the state, either. Clinton lost by nine points, though that was closer than the margin in Iowa, which in 2012 voted for Barack Obama. It was the closest the state had been since 1976, excluding 1992 and 1996 when Texan Ross Perot played spoiler. Last year, O’Rourke lost by less than three points.

Then there’s this new poll of Texans by Quinnipiac University. It has Trump struggling against a number of the Democrats running for the party’s 2020 nomination. He’s up only four points on Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) — and that’s the race in which he’s doing the best. Despite his relative success last year, O’Rourke loses to Trump by three points. Against Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Trump’s only up one.

Against former vice president Joe Biden? Trump is losing by four points.

We need to win in 2020. The country cannot stand four more years of trump.

Texas may be a battleground state-Biden up 4% over trump in Texas

There are a ton of good Democrats working hard to turn Texas blue and trump may assist the process

Trump Children Crashed Royal Banquet

This is so very sad but not surprising https://politicalwire.com/2019/06/04/trump-children-crashed-royal-banquet/

Queen Elizabeth II formally invited just President Trump and first lady Melania Trump to travel to London for an official State Banquet at Buckingham Palace. But the event became more of an extended family affair, with Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and his wife Lara, and Tiffany Trump all joining the exclusive party.”

“The President’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, was already set to attend in her capacity as a formal adviser to the President, and a senior member of his administration.”
