Liberals Panic About Justice Kennedy’s Potential Retirement
Secular media outlets began to melt down when reporting on the possible retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy who has been the swing vote for decades.
They fear that President Trump will appoint a second pro-life, conservative justice.
Listen to correspondent Terry Moran on ABC’s Good Morning America.
TERRY MORAN: “If he decides to retire, and there are signs that he would, it would be a war for this court like nothing seen in the past 30 years since the nomination of Robert Bork was defeated and Justice Kennedy took his seat.”
And here’s correspondent Jan Crawford on CBS This Morning.
JAN CRAWFORD: “So if he goes, that’s going to give President Trump a massive opportunity to move the Court further to the right for generations and Democrats would basically be powerless to stop it.”

Planned Parenthood Pressures Radio Station into Pulling Pro-Life Ads
Leaders of a Planned Parenthood abortion mill in Kansas City, Kansas were so upset about a pro-life pregnancy center taking business from them that they did something drastic.
The pro-aborts put pressure on 96.5 The Buzz, an alternative music radio station, to pull the pro-life ads that they were airing as part of a six-week partnership with the pregnancy center. Sadly, Planned Parenthood successfully intimidated the radio station into cancelling the pregnancy support center ads after only one week.
The World View spoke with Ruth Tisdale, the Executive Director of the Advice and Aid Pregnancy Center, about their passion.
“The mission of Advice and Aid Pregnancy Center is to serve families facing an unplanned pregnancy, before, during, and after with Christ-like compassion.”
Tisdale said that ministering to these women has taught her the mighty power of God’s reconciliation.
“God is very actively working in people’s lives. And God pursues people. He wants to bring people back, to restore relationships.”
