The U.S. Supreme Court has just allowed the strictest abortion law ever to take effect. The Texas law bans abortions after 6 weeks, right around the time a fetal heartbeat can be detected. It essentially bans all abortions, and many legal observers believe other states will pass copycat laws, and this will lead to a serious challenge to Roe v Wade.
We react to the Texas law, and SCOTUS refusing to block it, although there is still a chance they could.
- Later in the show I'll pose the question..."What if the Texas abortion law became the law of the land?"
Reuters has published the transcript of a phone call between Biden and Afghanistan's president Ghani back in late July in which Biden clearly tries to get Ghani to lie about the rapid advances of the Taliban. Here's the key excerpt:

Remember when I sounded the alarm that COVID issues and DeSantis' stance on mask mandates could be a danger to him politically in the run up to his re-election bid? Well, the danger signs are appearing as DeSantis strongholds of voter support ... from Brevard County to Lee County on the SW coast...to the Sarasota area are bucking the Governor and going for mask mandates for school kids. We'll debate whether this is a serious threat to DeSantis....or not.
