Impeachment, resignation, 25th Amendment: How Democrats in Congress are trying to remove Trump after Capitol riots

  Impeachment, resignation, 25th Amendment: How Democrats in Congress are trying to remove Trump after Capitol riots Democrats in Congress have urged Trump to resign and for the Cabinet to remove him using the 25th Amendment. Now they're preparing for impeachment.They've called for his resignation, urged the Cabinet to remove him under the 25th Amendment and, with those two options looking extremely unlikely, are preparing to impeach the president for a second time.

Despite his many faults, former President Donald Trump was an important ally of the pro-life movement. But as Roe v. Wade reaches another dark anniversary, the cause of protecting human life faces a difficult future. The new administration is arguably the most radically pro-abortion government ever.

President Biden is already working hard to roll back many of the administrative policies the Trump administration passed to protect the unborn. Biden is expected to reverse the Mexico City policy within weeks, which means the United States will once again finance international groups that provide or promote abortions. His administration also plans to crack down on employers who decline to provide contraceptive coverage to their workers and to reinstate Title X funding for Planned Parenthood and other abortion centers, which Trump had withdrawn.

A Biden presidency could bring a wave of policy shifts. Here are the ones you likely care about.

  A Biden presidency could bring a wave of policy shifts. Here are the ones you likely care about. What changes will a Biden presidency bring to American politics and policy? Here's a quick look at his priorities once he takes office.President-elect Joe Biden, who will be sworn in to office on Wednesday, has made clear his top priorities will be to not only reverse some of those implemented by President Donald Trump’s administration, but also to implement aggressive relief toward COVID-19, and several areas of progressive legislation.

To mark the 45th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade, women are sharing their own stories of choice and abortion on social media. Jennifer Ryan faces charges of disorderly conduct and knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful entry.

When asked on Wednesday whether Biden would work with congressional Democrats to repeal the Hyde Amendment, a statute that prohibits the federal government from using taxpayer dollars to fund abortion, press secretary Jen Psaki played coy, saying, “I think we’ll have more to say on the Mexico City policy in the coming days, but I will just take the opportunity to remind all of you that he is a devout Catholic and somebody who attends church regularly. He started his day attending church with his family this morning. But I don’t have anything more for you on that.”

Biden's personal displays of piety aside, these policy changes suggest that his administration won’t just tolerate abortion but will actively promote it and reward others who do the same. The Clinton formulation that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare” is no longer tolerated within Democratic circles. Biden's example illustrates that even reputedly centrist Democratic politicians have embraced extreme demands that abortion be accessible to anyone, at any stage of pregnancy, for any reason whatsoever, and that all of us, as taxpayers, should be obliged to fund it.

Joe Biden's Options for Dealing with Donald Trump Are Worse than Watergate

  Joe Biden's Options for Dealing with Donald Trump Are Worse than Watergate When it comes to Donald Trump, the incoming president has a critical decision to make about the best way to move the country forward—and neither Democrats nor Republicans are likely to be happy about his choice.The 78-year-old Democrat, more comfortable preaching the politics of unity and reconciliation than backing a fire-and-brimstone approach, has not publicly—or privately, advisers say—backed impeachment or pushed for conviction in the Senate, even as a groundswell for justice has emerged in the wake of the Capitol riot.

Joe Biden 's arm is seen around an IRA fugitive with the pair flanked by Gerry Adams, who, in a potentially The 72-year-old has faced claims that for years he was a member of the IRA's ruling army council, but Last night the image of Mr Biden with the Sinn Fein figures prompted similar warnings.

Joe Biden 's projected victory in the US presidential election, defeating incumbent conservative populist Donald Trump, could mark the beginning of a dramatic shift in America's attitude toward the world. But does that mean things are going back to normal?

There could be no greater departure from the Trump administration’s work to disentangle the federal government from abortion wherever possible and to empower individual states to decide the matter themselves. Much of this was done administratively and can thus be undone by Biden. But some of Trump’s most important pro-life achievements will be much harder to erase, such as his many conservative judicial appointments.

With three new Supreme Court justices and hundreds more judges appointed to state and federal courts, pro-life advocates stand a much better chance of success than they did before Trump's term in the Oval Office. When the Biden administration oversteps the bounds prescribed by the Constitution or statute law, or when Democratic states attempt to force the pro-life movement into retreat, Trump’s judges will, we hope, yank them back on track. Federal courts might even take up cases on abortion precedent, which could lead to protections for unborn babies that no Democratic president could overturn.

Power Up: Unity in Washington will be harder than Biden makes it sound

Rand Paul (R-Ky.) even trashed Biden's speech itself, which was widely-lauded for its appeals for Americans to set aside their political differences and work together for a better country.

Despite a wave of attacks from the Trump White House, former Vice President Joe Biden ’s national polling average is holding steady. Why are Democrats anxious, apart from the fact that, as some of those interviewed pointed out, it is their natural state? A major factor is Biden ’s fundraising.

Another place one should certainly visit is Novodevichy Convent with its lacelike towers and golden domes. Another favorite pastime is ice skating. There is a giant skating rink every winter in Red Square and After World War , Cousteau began his life ’s work onboard the research ship Calypso.

All of this is to say that the pro-life movement faces challenges and opportunities under Biden. Pro-lifers have never been better positioned to scale back Roe than they are now, but they also face a hostile administration with an aggressive pro-abortion agenda and an army of abortion activists that feels empowered to punish anyone who resists them.

There is reason to hope that the culture is changing. Public opinion has trended toward increased abortion restrictions for the past several years. Even a good number of Democratic voters are hesitant to support some of the actions Biden is now proposing, such as repealing the Mexico City policy and the Hyde Amendment. So it is still possible that the pro-life movement sees success over the next four years. But it will also face a few more challenges along the way.
