“Worst Slump In A Generation:: China Auto Sales Continue Historic Collapse – Zero Hedge
.

.
Auto sales in China have fallen for the 15th month out of 16 months in September. It’s the “worst slump in a generation”, according to Bloomberg, as the key Asian market continues to be the poster child for the global automotive recession.

The market fell 6.6% to 1.81 million total units, according to the China Passenger Car Association. The auto industry continues to be weighed down by a slowing global economy, the trade war and stricter emissions rules.

The China Association of Automobile Manufacturers is forecasting a drop in vehicle deliveries to dealers in 2019, despite China trying several types of stimulus to drum up demand. Both local manufacturers and global manufacturers have experienced these headwinds in China…

Leftist Fraud Update: Nancy Pelosi Informs Democrat Caucus There Will Be No Formal Floor Vote To Launch Impeachment Probe – Gateway Pundit

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) confirmed to her Democrat Caucus on Tuesday that there will be no formal floor vote to officially launch an impeachment probe against President Trump.

Fox News Congress reporter Chad Pergram and Congress writer for The Hill Scott Wong both confirmed Pelosi has no plans to hold a full House vote.

Rather, Pelosi and her fellow Democrat coup plotters are moving full steam ahead with secret impeachment proceedings ‘to keep President Trump and his lawyers in the dark,’ as Adam Schiff previously stated.

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) admitted on Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the reason for holding secret testimonies behind closed doors is to keep President Trump and his lawyers in the dark. And so Schiff can selectively leak to the media.

The crooked Democrats on Tuesday changed the rules again in their sham impeachment inquiry…

Losing It: Hillary Clinton Has Become Completely Delusional – Joseph Curl

There’s a book you can buy on Amazon called “Hillary Clinton in Wonderland,” a retelling of the Lewis Carroll classic with Hillary as the young heroine.

Sound far-fetched? It isn’t. It’s real, and it works because Mrs. Clinton has been in a fantasy world since she lost to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

In the months and years since her humiliating loss, she blamed James Comey, Russia, computer bots, WikiLeaks, Bernie Sanders, Facebook, Joe Biden, fake news, Twitter, voter ID laws, the vast right-wing conspiracy, sexism, Barack Obama, ageism, Anthony Weiner, white women, xenophobia, black people, the Electoral College, the DNC, misogyny, and women cowed by their husbands…

Latest DemoNazi Impeachment ‘Witness’ Fiona Hill Was Not Even Working In White House At Time Of Trump Call – Gateway Pundit

Former White House adviser Fiona Hill testified before Democrat investigators Monday as part of their closed door impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.

The liberal media pushed the line all day that she was a very important Russia adviser – they really propped her up. This can only mean that they know she is an anti-Trump hack.

Intel expert Tony Shaffer has no idea who she is which says a lot about the Democratic party witness.

According to reports Ms. Hill was not even working in the White House at the time of the call with the Ukrainian president on July 25th. Hill resigned before the call. So it’s not clear why they needed to speak with her for 11 hours.

Hill had ZERO knowledge of the call, and only heard rumors. Democrats don’t care. They want to impeach Trump on rumors.

What a clown show…

Staff Ran Fight Club For Dementia Patients At North Carolina Assisted Living Center, Police Say – News & Observer

Three women who ran a “fighting ring” at a North Carolina assisted living facility encouraged residents to get into a physical altercation, officials say. They were workers at the Danby House in Winston-Salem in June when they didn’t intervene in a fight between two residents with dementia, according to a report from the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services.

Staff members took video of the fight, which led to “one resident being strangled with her face turning red,” and shared it on social media, the state report says.

It happened when one resident hit another, and the report says staff members can be heard on video saying, “Punch her in the face.” During the altercation, a staff member asked, “Are you recording? You gonna send it to me?” the report says…

Corrupt DemoNazi Senators Took Ukraine Cash – American Thinker

While Democrats are pushing the bogus Trump-Ukraine quid pro quo story invented by that great storyteller, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, two groups of Democratic senators have been colluding with Ukrainian interests to advance their own agenda and political careers.

Kudos to Steve Hilton for pointing out the corruption of the first group on the Oct. 13 edition of his Fox show “The Next Revolution” – a group of Democratic senators took cash from a Ukraine lobbyist to push Ukrainian gas interests at the same time the Democrats are pushing the Trump-Ukraine yarn.

As Hilton states in a transcript of his show available on Fox Opinion:

Remember Devon Archer, Hunter Biden’s business partner? He had previously been a top fundraiser for John Kerry, who was Secretary of State at the time. And soon after Devon and Hunter joined the Burisma Board, the company channeled $90,000 to a lobbying firm called ML Strategies, which was headed by none other than David Leiter, John Kerry’s former chief of staff…

President Trump: U.S. Troops Withdrawn From Syria Will Remain In Region To Prevent ISIS Resurgence – Fox News

President Trump announced on Monday that U.S. troops in northeastern Syria will be withdrawn from the country as planned, and redeployed “in the region to monitor the situation and prevent a repeat of 2014,” when the Islamic State made major territorial gains.

His statement came as two U.S. officials told Fox News that the Pentagon was accelerating its plans to get most U.S. troops out of Syria in the coming days and weeks. A “small footprint” of American forces will remain at a garrison in southern Syria to continue to disrupt remnants of ISIS, the president said in his statement.

It’s not clear right now when the roughly 1,000 U.S. troops in Syria will be pulling back.

The “small footprint” the president referenced was the At Tanf garrison in southern Syria near Jordan, where troops are expected to remain to guard a supply line used by Iranian-backed forces to move weapons between Tehran and Beirut, as well as Damascus, the officials added. ISIS traditionally has not had a large presence in that part of Syria…

GOP Gains Supermajority In Louisiana Senate; DemoNazi Governor On The Ropes – Townhall

In Louisiana’s Saturday election, Republicans had a lot to cheer about.

Among statewide office-holders, the incumbent GOP Lieutenant Governor (68 percent), Attorney General (66 percent), Treasurer (60 percent), and Agricultural Commissioner (58 percent) were all re-elected without the need for a run-off, under the state’s ‘jungle primary’-style system.

It also appears that the solid Republican majorities in both state legislative chambers will remain intact – with the GOP expanding its Senate advantage into super-majority territory by picking up a pair of Democratic seats.

Two major statewide races are headed to run-offs, and both are looking pretty good for Team Red. The incumbent Republican Secretary of State won a plurality of the vote, but didn’t reach the bare majority threshold required to stave off the two-way election, scheduled for November 16…

Creep Walked 351 Miles For Sex With 14-Year-Old, Who Was Undercover Cop – New York Post

A convicted pedophile from Indiana was busted for trying to have sex with a 14-year-old girl – after walking 351 miles to meet her, according to authorities.

Tommy Lee Jenkins, 32, began an X-rated instant-message exchange with a teen named “Kylee” in Wisconsin who was actually a sheriff’s deputy, according to the US Attorney’s Office.

Jenkins asked her for sexually explicit photographs while badgering her to meet him for sex in Whitestown, Ind., where he lived, officials said. When she refused, he set off on foot for where she supposedly was, in Neenah, Wisc. – repeatedly sending her explicit messages and updating her on the progress of his desperate hike, according to prosecutors.

His mammoth trek ended with a surprise – with sheriff’s deputies and an FBI agent waiting to bust him, authorities announced Friday. Jenkins was charged with using a computer to attempt to persuade, induce or entice a minor to engage in unlawful sexual activity…

Leftist Insanity Update: 13-Year-Old Kansas Girl Charged With Felony For Making “Gun-Like Hand Gesture” Toward Classmates – Zero Hedge

A 13-year-old girl in Overland Park, Kansas, was arrested last month and charged with a felony after police say her classmates claim she made a “gun-like hand gesture” at multiple students.

The girl, who is a student at Westridge Middle School, flashed the “finger gun” at four fellow students and then toward herself on September 18 after her classmates asked her which five people in the classroom she would kill, said Overland Park Police Chief Frank Donchez.

The student, who remains unidentified due to laws protecting her privacy, was arrested and charged the day following the incident for threatening a mass shooting, according to the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office. The girl admitted to threatening others, the police have said.

Donchez told USA Today:

“Overnight, some of those students contacted the school administration and expressed their fear of this individual, that based on this incident, they were in genuine fear of this individual.”

Whistleblower Had ‘Professional’ Tie To 2020 Democratic Candidate – Washington Examiner

In an Aug. 26 letter, the Intelligence Community’s inspector general, Michael Atkinson, wrote that the anonymous whistleblower who set off the Trump-Ukraine impeachment fight showed “some indicia of an arguable political bias… in favor of a rival political candidate.”

A few weeks later, news reports said the whistleblower’s possible bias was that he is a registered Democrat. That was all. Incredulous commentary suggested that Republicans who were pushing the bias talking point were so blinded by their own partisanship that they saw simple registration with the Democratic Party as evidence of wrongdoing.

“Give me a break!” tweeted whistleblower lawyer Mark Zaid. “Bias? Seriously?”

PG&E Starts To Cut Power For Nearly 800,000 California Customers On Wildfire Risk – Wall Street Journal

PG&E Corp. PCG -5.22% has begun to shut off power to hundreds of thousands of people in California as it seeks to prevent its electric lines from sparking more deadly wildfires, in what is believed to be the largest such pre-emptive blackout ever.

The outages are poised to hit areas across the northern and central parts of the state, including the famous wine country region, the rural Sierra Nevada foothills and portions of Oakland and San Jose. The utility is implementing the shut-offs as strong, dry winds are expected to hit the region, increasing the risk that its equipment could start fires.

PG&E said early Wednesday the shut-offs will occur in three phases, the first of which began affecting about 513,000 customers from around midnight local time. These outages will be spread across 22 counties, the utility said, including Napa, Mendocino and Sonoma in the wine country region.

The second phase is set to occur around noon Wednesday, turning off service to approximately 234,000 customers in seven additional counties, PG&E said…

U.S. Signs Trade Agreement With Japan – Epoch Times

The United States and Japan signed on Oct. 7 a trade agreement that would open up markets to 7 billion dollars worth of U.S. agricultural goods.

Japan is the third-largest agricultural market for U.S. exporters, according to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR).

Drag Queen Seen Stripping At Children’s Library Event In Seattle – Big League Politics

Video has emerged of a drag queen performing in a sexually suggestive strip tease at a Washington ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ event, in a development that’s likely to draw further criticism towards the national phenomenon.

In no universe is such a sexually charged display appropriate for children, who have been participants in previous Drag Queen Story Hour events nationwide. It’s unclear if the individual’s performance was held in the presence of minors.

It evidently took place over the summer at a Seattle-area library. In any case, such a performance shouldn’t be held at a library, which is bound to draw many minors for more appropriate educational activities.

Cream Drummer Ginger Baker Dead At 80 – TMZ

Iconic drummer Ginger Baker died in a hospital in England Sunday, leaving behind one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll resumes. Ever.

In late September, Ginger’s family announced he was hospitalized with a critical illness, and a few days later asked fans to keep him in their prayers. The family has not revealed what illness he was battling, but said he “passed away peacefully.”

Ginger was known as a wild man on the drums from his days playing with Cream members Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce. The group played legendarily long jams during their live shows and defined the psychedelic rock sound of the 1960s.

After Cream broke up, he went on to form another supergroup, Blind Faith…

Trump To Protect U.S. Taxpayers From Subsidizing Health Care For Immigrants – Breitbart

President Trump signed a presidential proclamation on Friday to protect American taxpayers from being forced to subsidize the healthcare costs of legal immigrants wanting to permanently resettle in the United States.

In a new rule, beginning November 3, foreign nationals applying for visas – not including refugees, asylees, or those on nonimmigrant visas – will have to prove that they will have either employer-based health insurance before arriving in the U.S. or a non-subsidized private health insurance plan.

The proclamation reads:

While our healthcare system grapples with the challenges caused by uncompensated care, the United States Government is making the problem worse by admitting thousands of aliens who have not demonstrated any ability to pay for their healthcare costs…

Appeals Court Upholds $130,000 Judgment Against Pomona College For Railroading Accused Student – College Fix

Lawyers for “John Doe” wanted Pomona College to pay at least $250,000 in attorney’s fees for repeatedly violating its own policies to find the accused student responsible for sexual assault.

They got about half that from Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mary Strobel, who said Pomona’s conduct was so egregious that she couldn’t “conclude that the factual scenario was unique and unlikely to recur.” (Pomona attempted to retry Doe with the same approach Strobel struck down.)

Florida: Parents Called Sheriff’s Deputies After Finding Two Dozen Pipe Bombs In Daughter’s Room – KSAZ

A Wimauma woman was arrested early Friday morning after her parents found a “significant” amount of pipe bomb in her bedroom, the sheriff announced Friday morning.

Investigators said the parents of 27-year-old Michelle Louise Kolts called them after the discovery. The sheriff’s office bomb squad responded and discovered: two dozen pipe bombs, smokeless pistol powder, fused material, 23 different knives, two hatchets, nunchucks, two BB pellet-type rifles, six BB pellet-type handguns, and dozens of books and DVDs about murder, mass killings, bomb-making and domestic terrorism.

Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said each pipe bomb contained nails, metallic pellets, or a combination of both.

“It would’ve taken less than 60 seconds per device to add the powder-infused material she already possessed to detonate each bomb. If used, these bombs could’ve caused catastrophic damage and harm to hundreds, even thousands of people,” he said during a press conference…

Flavored E-cigarettes Are Officially Illegal In New York – New York Post

Flavored e-cigarette products are officially illegal in New York – at least for the next 90 days, state health officials voted late Tuesday.

Following an emergency executive action from Gov. Andrew Cuomo to ban all flavored vape products besides menthol on Sunday, the Public Health and Health Planning Council voted unanimously to implement the move just after 5 p.m.

New York vape shops and bodegas have a two-week grace period before enforcement begins, state health officials said. They’ve been instructed to clean up their shops and remove all of the offending flavored items off the shelves during that time.

If shop owners are caught with any flavored e-liquids, they’ll be fined $2,000 per unit, the Department of Health said in a press release. Once the 90-day period is over, the council will have to reconvene and vote again to extend it another 90 days. If they don’t, the order will expire.

Cuomo wants the state legislature to draft a law that would make the ban permanent…

President Trump Says He Will ‘Substantially Increase’ Iran Sanctions Over Attack On Saudi Arabia Oil Facilities – USA Today

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is scheduled to be in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday to speak with leaders there about potential responses to the oil facility attack.

North Carolina High School Teacher: VP Mike Pence Should Be “Shot In The Head” – Big League Politics

Established in the 1970s in response to the Arab oil embargo, the Strategic Petroleum Reserve is the world’s largest crude oil stash.

Located along parts of the U.S. Gulf Coast, it has been used a handful of times times since its conception: during the first Gulf War in 1991, after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005 and following supply chain disruptions in Libya in 2011.

NRA Sues Democrat-Run San Francisco Over ‘Domestic Terrorist Organization’ Declaration – Fox News
.

.
The National Rifle Association filed a lawsuit against San Francisco Monday over the city’s recent declaration that the gun-rights lobby is a “domestic terrorist organization.”

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the city and county of San Francisco and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. It accuses city officials of violating the gun lobby’s free speech rights for political reasons and claims the city is trying to blacklist anyone associated with the NRA from doing business there.

The gun rights lobby asked the court to step in “to instruct elected officials that freedom of speech means you cannot silence or punish those with whom you disagree.”…

Median Income Hit Record High In 2018 While Poverty Declined – Washington Examiner

Median U.S. household income reached $63,200 in 2018, the highest figure on record, new data released Tuesday by the Census Bureau revealed.

The official poverty rate also reached its lowest level since at least 2001, dropping to 11.8% of Americans, or 38.1 million people who are in poverty, according to the Census Bureau measurements. The number of people in poverty in 2018 decreased by 1.4 million people from 2017 levels.

Between 2014-2018, the United States experienced the strongest four-year improvement in the official poverty rate in decades.

With the significant improvements to median income and poverty witnessed from 2015-2017, 2018 was not a particularly unusual year in terms of economic growth trends. It represents the cumulative effort of the economic recovery that started in 2009.

In 2015, for example, the poverty rate dropped from 14.8% to 13.5%…

A federal appeals court on Monday vacated a 30-day prison sentence for a neighbor of Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) who assaulted him in 2017, ruling it was overly lenient and ordering a resentencing.

In a 16-page opinion, Judge Jane B. Stranch of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, writes that the lower court where Rene Boucher pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress had “no compelling justification” for sentencing him far below federal guidelines.

North Korea Offers To Resume Nuclear Disarmament Talks With The U.S. Later This Month – Daily Telegraph

North Korea on Monday said it was ready to resume disarmament talks with the United States in late September, raising the possibility of a breakthrough in a lengthy stalemate over the fate of Pyongyang’s nuclear and weapons programme.

Choe Son-hui, the country’s vice foreign minister, made the announcement through North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency, saying Pyongyang had taken note of Washington’s repeated calls for talks.

“We are willing to comprehensively talk about all the issues we have discussed until now with the United States at an agreed time and place in late September,” she said, according to the South Korean newswire, Yonhap.

“I want to believe that the US will come up with an alternative that meets the interests of both the DPRK (North Korea) and the US, and is based on a way of calculation acceptable to us,” Ms Choe added, warning that a failure to do so could “spell an end to bargaining.”…

German Citizens Begin Arming Themselves As Violent Crime Rises – News Punch

A growing number of German citizens are applying for permits to carry guns amid escalating violent crime in the country.

In today’s Germany, around 640,000 citizens are legally permitted to carry a firearm. This figure has grown massively since 2014 when there were just 260,000 citizens with permits to carry a gun.

Voiceofeurope.com reports: That’s nearly a 250 percent increase in just five years. Die Welt reports that these figures were able to see the light of day thanks to a survey that was conducted by regional daily, Rheinische Post, at the interior ministries of all 16 federal states.

According to the data obtained, in the last year alone, the increase in small firearm licenses rose about 9 percent compared to the same period last year.

Illinois Paid Millions In Medicaid For People Who Are Already Dead – PJ Media

The proof is in the pudding, as they say. In other words, if you want to see the “competency” and “efficiency” of leftists at work, look to Illinois.

Among a myriad of state-wide problems created by leftist ideology, a new report from the U.S. Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General uncovered that Illinois spent at least $4.6 million between 2015 and 2017 on people who are already dead.

Those uninitiated in the utter lack of competency among leftists may wonder how this could ever happen. How does the state spend money on dead people? Well, ABC 20 out of Springfield, Ill., explains it this way:

Here’s how it works: managed care organizations provide health care to Medicaid patients in exchange for monthly “capitation” payments from the state. “This means they pay a specific amount at a regular interval for that person, depending on their age, gender, and disease states,” Petersburg Pharmacy owner Dave Bagot said…

Crossing The Street, Riding A Bicycle, Kills More Americans Than Rifles Do – Breitbart

The left’s relentless push to ban commonly-owned semiautomatic rifles under the guise of safety overlooks the fact that Americans face numerous things that cause exponentially more death than rifles on a daily basis.

Consider Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics from 2017, the most recent year of complete data. The total number of firearm-related deaths was 39,773. Roughly two-thirds of that figure, 23,854, were firearm-related suicides, with the remaining 15,919 being a combination of the approximately 500 accidental gun deaths that occur annually coupled with just over 15,000 firearm-related homicides.

If we break down the firearm-related homicides via FBI crime statistics, we see that handguns were far and away the common firearm for murder.

The FBI reported 7,032 murders with a handgun verses 403 murders with a rifle, and 264 with a shotgun, in cases where the firearm was identifiable…

Around half of the military funding will come from construction projects within the U.S. while the other half will be taken from construction projects outside the country.

Judge Orders Antifa Parasites To ‘Stay Out Of Boston’ – Boston Herald

Weasel Demands Apology After Being Called James Comey – Amdrew Klavan

Calls are growing louder for former FBI Director James Comey to be brought up on perjury charges after an Inspector General’s report revealed that he is, in fact, a weasel.

America’s Poor Fare Better Than Average Persons In Canada, The UK – Daniel Mitchell

Seems like there is a lot to criticize, right? Yes, but sometimes the key to success is being “less worse” than your competitors. So while I’m critical of many bad policies in the United States, it’s worth noting that America nonetheless ranks #6 for overall economic liberty according to the Fraser Institute.

As such, it’s not surprising that America has higher living standards than most other developed nations according to the “actual individual consumption” data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

Epstein’s Accusers Testify In Court In Wake Of His Death – Epoch Times

Many described how their lives were turned into a spiral of disarray and suffering after they were sexually abused by Epstein, who prosecutors say exploited and abused dozens of minor girls at his different residences.

Sixteen women testified in person to the court; some gave their names, others preferred to remain anonymous. Lawyers also read statements from seven other women who couldn’t, or didn’t want to speak publicly.

Left-Wing Activist Judge Temporarily Blocks 8-Week Abortion Law In Missouri – The Hill

A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked a Missouri law banning abortions after eight weeks, one of the most restrictive proposals nationwide. The law, which included no exceptions for rape and incest, was signed by Gov. Mike Parson (R) in May and was set to take effect Wednesday.

Critics of the measure, such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Planned Parenthood, who filed the challenge, noted that many women do not know they are pregnant at eight weeks and that the law functioned as an outright abortion ban.

“The various sections specifying prohibitions on abortions at various weeks prior to viability cannot be allowed to go into effect on August 28, as scheduled,” U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs, a Carter appointee, wrote in an 11-page opinion.

Similar laws in Mississippi and Kentucky have been blocked by the courts this year. State legislatures and governors are passing abortion restrictions in an attempt to get the Supreme Court to revisit Roe v. Wade…

During the trial, the court was told that the suspect went ahead and committed the revolting act, despite having full knowledge that the woman could not consent to sex or resist his advances because of her mental condition.

“She could not speak, feed herself or use the bathroom on her own as she wore a diaper and relied on staff,” Jordan Rolfe, the lead prosecutor told the court. Rolfe told the court that every male member of the facility was asked to submit to DNA tests…

China Announces It Seeks ‘Calm’ End To Trade War, As Asian Markets Tank And Yuan Hits 11-Year Flatline – Fox News

U.S. District Judge Lisa Godbey Wood granted a substantial victory to the 10 states that challenged the rule in the courts. Godbey claimed that the rule violated the Administrative Procedure Act and the Clean Water Act and was therefore unconstitutional.

“The court finds that both because of its combination with tributaries and the selection of over-broad geographic limits without showing a significant nexus, the adjacent waters definition in the WOTUS rule is unlawful under Justice Kennedy’s Rapanos opinion,” Wood wrote.

Wood noted that the rule was issued in direct violation of states’ rights, as the Obama administration flagrantly disregarded the constitutional balance of powers…

Mercedes Spies On Drivers By Secretly Installing Tracking Devices In Cars And Passing Information To Bailiffs – The Sun

Mercedes has sparked a privacy row by admitting it spies on drivers with tracking devices covertly installed in its cars. The secret sensors, fitted to all new and used motors sold by the firm’s dealers, pinpoint the vehicle’s exact location.

The firm sold more than 170,000 new cars in Britain alone last year. Mercedes will not say how long it has used the sensors. And it insists they are only activated in “extreme circumstances” – when finance customers have defaulted on their payments.

But it admits sharing car owner information and vehicle location details with third-party bailiffs and recovery firms who repossess the cars.

Ex-Cabinet minister David Davis today called for the Government to investigate. He added: “This is not the first time big business has behaved like Big Brother – but it’s rare to be quite as deceitful as this.

Such moves would typically be considered only when the economy faces serious peril, which Fed officials don’t believe to be the case.

Planned Parenthood Set To Lose $60 Million In Annual Funds On Monday, Following Trump Administration Rule Change – Big League Politics

The Trump administration is cracking down on Planned Parenthood, the federally-subsidized abortion provider that has killed and dismembered millions of babies nationwide,by denying them the annual funds they have come to rely upon from the taxpayer.

They announced they intend to withdraw from the Title X program, as those funds are now denied to family-planning entities that provide abortions.

The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco still has a chance to overturn the rules, as Planned Parenthood and their allies have filed a lawsuit to overturn Trump’s decision.
