Supreme Court strikes down abortion restrictions with Chief Justice John Roberts joining liberals in another blow to Donald Trump as White House blasts 'gutting' of Louisiana law
- Chief Justice John Roberts joins with liberals to strike down restrictive Louisiana abortion laws in a 5-4 ruling
- Louisiana had tried to make doctors at abortion clinics have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals
- But Roberts ruled the restrictions were so identical to a similar law in Texas overturned by the Supreme Court in 2016 that they were illegal
- The chief justice had dissented in the 2016 ruling but flipped sides because he ruled the court has to follow precedent
- Ruling with the court's liberal wing is the latest by Roberts who was part of 6-3 majority on gay civil rights and 5-4 ruling against Trump abolishing DACA

Marines' new shotgun taser can electrocute enemies from 300 feet away!
THE US Marine Corps is testing a powerful electroshock weapon that can zap enemies from 300 feet away.
Dubbed "Specter", the non-lethal projectile can be fired from a shotgun and downs targets using a taser-like electric shock.
To avoid causing serious injury, the projectile deploys a parachute right before it hits an enemy to slow it down before impact.
According to Harkind Dynamics, the parachute halves the speed of the projectile.
Within a metre of its target, Spectre releases three electrode darts that can penetrate clothes and skin.
It's these darts that deliver the electric shock, which incapacitates the target.

Mystery Unmanned Craft Seen Off Florida May Be Secret SHARC Spy Vessel
Wave Gliders ideal for military intelligence gathering, which is likely why Boeing bought makers Liquid Robotics in 2016… The Navy's sub-hunting Wave Glider is known as Sensor Hosting Autonomous Research Craft, or SHARC… However, the U.S. is not the only one with this technology. Back in 2016 I noted a near-identical copy of the Wave Glider called Fugu being tested by the Russian Navy. So, while it is most likely one of ours, the device seen 15 miles off Key West might just be one of theirs. It would not be the first time unmanned water craft were used for spying.

Why would hospitals be so dishonest in their diagnoses? Billions of appropriated Federal dollars are being funneled to facilities based on the number of “Covid cases” they can produce.

That is the only way we’ll get through this.
Bill Gates says ‘final hurdle’ to distributing a Covid-19 vaccine will be convincing people to TAKE IT
Gates seemed miffed that Washington wasn’t following his instructions more closely, complaining that “it’s possible to ramp up testing for a new pathogen very, very fast” if they’d just do as they were told.
“Other countries” are “restraining their behavior,” imposing restrictive lockdowns and quarantines, and adopting comprehensive contact tracing, Gates hinted, sounding impatient with the US’ “very large case spread,” which he called “embarrassing.”
Some 70 to 80 percent of the world’s population will have to take the vaccine before anyone can hope to live a normal life again “with people taking vacations,” travel, and sporting events, Gates explained, implying they had no choice.
