* Donald Trump's Abortion Barbarity on 60 Minutes: In his first interview since winning the election, Trump gave CBS' Leslie Stahl immoral responses to her questions about child killing. When asked about his upcoming Supreme Court nominations, and if they'll overturn Roe v. Wade, the president elect said his nominees will be pro-life, and then he tried to immediately change the subject, but realized he had to bring it back:

Donald Trump: They’ll be pro-life, they’ll be-- in terms of the whole gun situation, we know the Second Amendment and everybody’s talking about the Second Amendment... But having to do with abortion if it ever were overturned, it would go back to the states. So it would go back to the states and--

That immoral position is just as immoral as Roe v. Wade itself. Just like the federal government has no authority to decriminalize child killing, neither do the states. (If you are confused on this simple matter of fundamental morality and governance, we urge you to see States have the obligation to prosecute murder but they have not authority to decriminalize murder. To Trump's statement, Stahl asked, as though this weren't something to celebrate, "but then, some women won’t be able to get an abortion?"

Donald Trump: No, it’ll go back to the states. ... well, they’ll perhaps have to go, they’ll have to go to another state."

Then Stahl asked: "And that’s OK?"

Even though he no longer has the "excuse" that he's trying to get elected, Trump still responds in amoral ways to the topic of child killing (of all things), which should surprise no one since he is from a family of child killers.

Donald Trump: Well, we’ll see what happens. It’s got a long way to go, just so you understand. That has a long, long way to go.

And that was it. He was speaking to the nation. No reminder that abortion kills an innocent child. No word on the horror of dismembering the unborn. Just political posturing, the kind that will be brought up again, on Judgment Day.

* Explanation of New Zealand's Earthquake Lights: Earthquakes produce piezoelectric lightning flashes in the ground and also, coming out of the ground.
