A federal appeals judge appointed by Bill Clinton lashed out at the other judges on the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for agreeing to hear arguments on a Tennessee abortion law.
Article by Bob Unruh from WND.
Judge Karn Moore already had rejected a request for a postponement of a district judge’s dismissal of the case.
Moore accused her colleagues of bringing disrepute on the court, contending the decision “lacks a principled basis and tarnishes this court’s reputation for impartiality and independence.”
She personally attacked one of the other judges, Amul Thapar, a Trump appointee.
“Judge Thapar disagreed [with the panel decision to refuse delay of the district judge’s dismissal],” she wrote. “So vehemently did he disagree that he called for ‘immediate correction’ of the stay order, urging appellants to seek initial hearing en banc.
“Appellants readily obliged, filing a petition for initial hearing en banc. By granting that petition, a majority of this court has sent a dubious message about its willingness to invoke that extraordinary – and extraordinarily disfavored – procedure in ideologically charged cases.”
She said it was now “sorrier times” when the full court didn’t want to wait for a panel decision to get a case wrong in order to correct it.
The state law, requiring a 48-hour waiting period for an abortion, was adopted in 2015.
Judge Bernard Friedman ruled the law unconstitutional, deeming the required wait “gratuitously demeaning.”
The state appealed, and Moore was part of a panel that rejected a request to delay Friedman’s decision. She then attacked others on the court.
The majority opinion of the court was a single statement, declaring the petition for initial hearing of the full court was granted.
But Moore unleashed pages of condemnation.
Citing the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure and the circuit’s internal “operating procedures,” she insisted a three-judge panel should have been given the case first.
She argued that the issue is only an abortion waiting-period law.
“This case does not involve an imminent, irreversible event, such as an impending election or execution, which has – still on rare occasion – served as an exceptional justification for skipping over a three-judge panel,” she wrote.
She said the full court is hearing the case apparently because of the “likelihood” that a three-judge panel would get it wrong.
“That prediction is a dangerous one,” she said. “The grant of initial hearing en banc in this case damages the reputation of this court, and the majority that has now granted initial hearing en banc is no less implicated by that damage than anyone else.”
She suggested “there are judges on this court who will always side with appellants on the issue of abortion and will upend standard practice to do so.”
Courthouse News reported Moore was on the panel that denied Tennessee’s petition for a stay of the lower court’s ruling pending the outcome of the appeal.
She said the state lawyers apparently disliked her opposition to their requests, along with that of another judge, so they appealed to the full court.
Abortionists oppose the waiting period, claiming it would increase the costs of accessing abortion.
Pro-abortion activists in state governments in Colorado, Illinois, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts and a dozen other states sided with the abortionists.
Too Few Are Telling the Truth
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), and Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCO). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would break away. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken away from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
