War-time president receives standing ovation from members of Congress
Who would have politics, but for our sins we have.
Ukraine is fighting for its sole existence and for democracy, if Ukraine fails then, not only will Ukraine not exist, but the writing will be on the wall for democracy too.
Perhaps, the Republican Party is not bothered about democracy, but the majority of Americans are, so, they need to put politics aside if they wish for democracy to survive and this will only occur if Ukraine survives too. For, if Ukraine loses the Ukrainian/Russian war, Putin will see this as his ‘Green’ light to extend his takeover of not just all of Ukraine, but all countries around and maybe many more, the start of a new Russian Empire.
Is this what the Republicans really desire, or are they too in the pocket of Putin. The democratic West will be finished and perhaps, even the World.

State laws are causing confusion and problems for US patients trying to access drugs, even when they are not for abortions, following the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade,1 with some doctors seeking legal advice before treating patients.Since the reversal of the constitutional right to abortion on 24 June 2022, about half of the 50 US states are now severely restricting the right to abortion or plan to do so soon, including medication abortions.In a joint statement2 made on 8 September, the American Medical Association (AMA), the American Pharmacists Association, the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, and the National Community Pharmacists Association warned …
This is what occurs when people meddle in politics and the Law and the Law follows political leanings instead of looking after all human rights and the due process of medcial procedures.
For Methetrexate and maybe other medications are now in short supply or medicals are not prescribing them due to fears of creating actions for which legal actions could be taken aginst them, even though the said medications are not being used in these instances, but in other instances they could be.
Methetrexate is a well known medication for treating some forms of arthritis, but as it can also be used in abortions, now it is not readily available for suffers of arthritis. This is causing so much harm and needs to be addressed urgeently.
Americans, especially Republicans desist venturing into areas that you have no comprehension of.

The ideologically driven conservative majority is likely to further weaken key civil rights legislation after a term of radical rulings
This is extremely disturbing for it is a prime example of where politics is the main ruling factor over justice and is breaching Human Rights of non-white people, meaning that the ‘Land of the Free’ is only free for whites.
Politics should have no bearing in the rule of law, for if this is taken to its extreme it could mean the overturning of the abolishing of slavery, however, that would mean having to remove the 13th Amendment of the Constitution, but it appears that the current US Supreme Court has no regards for Human Rights.
This is down to Trump and if he is allowed to run for President in 2024 then America could well become a country which will be a country for whites only, as every other ethnicity will be discriminated against.
The abuse in America will know no bounds and equality will be a concept of the past.

It would now appear that some Republicans in the Senate and Congress have now come to their senses and see Trump for what he is, no matter how belatedly this is.
For Trump has done and still is causing serious damage to the Republican Party, who now appear to see to it that Trump can never be elected to Governing Office again.
I feel it is forgone that the Impeachment resolution will have no problems coming through the Congress, but the hurdle will be the Senate.
