Indeed, in many ways, it seems like the best of times.

Obama Threatens to Veto Bill Banning Abortions After 20 Weeks - President Barack Obama has issued a veto threat of a bill the House of Representatives will vote on this week that would ban abortions from after 20-weeks all the way to birth.

Words included such innocuous terms as: “militia,” “exercise,” “cops,” “national security” and “facility.” Interestingly and of note, “jihad” was not included, nor were the words “Middle East,” “Arab,” “Muslim,” “terrorist” or “pressure cooker.” Perhaps those are on a different DHS red flag list?
