How Democrats and Gays have Gone Too Far and Lost Their Claim to a Protected Status

“In the past, when gays were very flamboyant as drag queens or as leather queens or whatever, that just amused people. And most of the people that come and watch the gay Halloween parade, where all those excesses are on display, those are straight families, and they think it’s funny. But what people don’t think is so funny is when two middle-aged lawyers who are married to each other move in next door to you and your wife and they have adopted a Korean girl and they want to send her to school with your children and they want to socialize with you and share a drink over the backyard fence. That creeps people out, especially Christians. So, I don’t think gay marriage is a conservative issue. I think it’s a radical issue.” ― Edmund White


There are a small number of those in America who consider themselves members of the LGBT community. Gallup in a May 22, 2018 report titled “In U.S., Estimate of LGBT Population Rises to 4.5%” stated:

  • Rise in LGBT identification mostly among millennials
  • LGBT identification is lower among older generations
  • 5.1% of women identify as LGBT, compared with 3.9% of men

Gallup’s Bottom Line:

This 2017 update on LGBT identification underscores two significant conclusions. First, the percentage of adults in the U.S. who identify as LGBT has been increasing and is now at its highest point across the six years of Gallup’s tracking of this measure. Second, the increase has been driven almost totally by millennials, whose self-reports of being LGBT have risen from 5.2% six years ago to 8.1% today. Baby boomers and traditionalists have actually become slightly less likely to identify as LGBT since 2012, while the LGBT percentage among Gen Xers has risen only marginally.

QUESTION: Why the rise in LGBT identification among millennials and women?

ANSWER: The media, the Democratic Party and public schools.

THE MEDIA

The media includes LGBT themed Hollywood films, newspapers, major main stream media reports, TV programs (including those for children), TV and internet ads, and social media companies like Google’s search engine that provides 2,000,000,000 links when you type in the word “Gay.”

In a July 1, 2019 PJ Media column titled “Thanks, HGTV: Americans VASTLY Overestimate the Gay Population in U.S., Gallup FindsPaula Bolyard reported:

In 1989, Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen penned a book called After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear & Hatred of Gays in the 90’s wherein the authors outlined a strategy for transforming how Americans viewed homosexuality. They proposed to harness the power of the ad industry and media to depict gays “in the least offensive fashion possible” while stigmatizing those who disagreed with the gay lifestyle. Kirk and Madsen were honest about their cynical scheme to manipulate the American public: “We’re talking about propaganda.”

They proposed “A continuous flood of gay-related advertising” while making “homo-hating beliefs and actions look so nasty that average Americans will want to dissociate themselves from them.” [Emphasis added]

The term “homophobia”, first used by in print in an article written for the May 23, 1969, edition of the American pornographic magazine Screw by George Weinberg, an American clinical psychologist, has become a tool to silence those who disagree with the LGBT lifestyle.

The media companies literally began mainstreaming the LGBT agenda in High Definition programs like Netflix’s Sex Education, Everything Sucks and Sense8. Gallup explained that “representation of LGBT people as television series regulars on broadcast primetime scripted programming reached an all-time high of 8.8% in the 2018-2019 television season, which is nearly twice Gallup’s estimate of the actual population.”

DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND “GAY RIGHTS”

In a May 14, 2019 Pew Research Center report titled “Attitudes on Same-Sex Marriage” found:

Three-quarters of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents (75%) and fewer than half of Republicans and Republican leaners (44%) favor same-sex marriage.

More independents who lean toward the Democratic Party (81%) favor gay marriage than Democrats (71%). Similarly, Republican leaners are more supportive (56%) than Republicans (37%).

Support for same-sex marriage now stands at 88% among self-described liberal Democrats and Democratic leaners and 64% among conservative and moderate Democrats. Fewer conservative Republicans and Republican leaners (36%) support same-sex marriage than moderate and liberal Republicans (59%). [Emphasis added]

The Democratic Party has become literally the gay flag bearer for the LGBT community. 2020 Democratic Party presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren has called for gay reparations. Another presidential Democratic Party candidate and the Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg is openly gay.

Eagle Forum in a July 9, 2019 email noted:

This week the House of Representatives votes on H.R. 2500 or the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020 (NDAA) and the Speier Amendment. Although, the NDAA is necessary to fund our nation’s defense Democrats have insisted on using the legislation to advance their anti-Trump and gender redefining agenda.

[ … ]

Additionally, the NDAA Reauthorization includes many anti-family provisions. Among these are access to emergency contraception, or abortifacients, for sexual assault survivors and SOGI (sexual orientation and gender identity) language, which attempts to use the military as a tool to redefine gender. Congresswoman Jackie Speier’s amendment makes broad steps to force acceptance of the LGBTQ agenda. Not only does the Speier amendment completely undermine the Trump/Mattis Policy provision allowing a mentally-stable person with gender dysphoria to serve in the military only under their biological sex, but it also affirms that Congress believes gender is something that can be chosen on personal whim, not through DNA.

‘‘(c) GENDER IDENTITY DEFINED.  — In this section, the term ‘gender identity’ means the gender-related identity, appearance, mannerisms, or other gender-related characteristics of an individual, regardless of the individual’s designated sex at birth.’’

This is happening at a time when the LGBT agenda has become more radicalized and support for gays is dwindling, increasingly among millennials. Democrats now face a LGBT community that wants to silence any and all voices that believe there are only two genders, that marriage is between one male and one female and that a business can decide, based upon their religious beliefs, to not bake a cake for a gay wedding.

With the scandals unfolding in the Catholic Church involving gay priests and bishops molesting little boys and seminarians. With the Boy Scouts facing bankruptcy after allowing gay scout leaders, who then abused young boys leading to multiple law suits.

PUBLIC SCHOOLS

It is now clear that in predominantly Democratic Party controlled cities and states that the public schools are being used to raise a new generation of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders. Public schools are now breeding grounds for LGBT “propaganda.”

In a July 9, 2019 a column titled “California Implements Extreme New Sex Ed CurriculumMary Margaret Olohan  writes:

The California Board of Education implemented progressive sex and gender education curriculum in public schools across the state, regardless, in some cases, of parental knowledge or consent.

Progressive groups, including Planned Parenthood, collaborated on AB-329 in 2016 and the recently introduced Health Education Framework in May as highlighted by a video created by the conservative group Our Watch.

Both these pieces of education legislation mandate that school districts require sex ed and encourage students to question their parents on sexual topics—topics explored in the kindergarten through 12th grade sex education curricula implemented in California schools. [Emphasis added]

New York City is following suit to push homosexuality in its public schools. In a column titled “The Empire State’s New Clothes” the Family Research Council notes:

In New York City public schools, students can choose their classes, their sports, and their genders! Starting this fall, Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza is making the Big Apple an even bigger news story by radically changing the city’s policy on registered names, dress codes, bathrooms, locker rooms, and athletics. He says this is his way of celebrating Pride month. But “proud” is the last word most parents would use to describe the news.

In this new Wild West of gender identity, Carranza is giving the green light to everything from unofficial name changes to unisex school uniforms. “Schools are safe havens for students to develop their passions and discover their true identities, and these new guidelines celebrate and affirm all students,” Carranza insisted in a statement. For the first time, kids in the 2019-2020 school year will be able to “self-report names and genders” when enrolling in the city’s public schools. [Emphasis added]

Read more.

Watch this video on Comprehensive Sexuality Education:

It is clear that the media, the Democratic Party and now public schools are all rapidly and repeatedly pushing homosexuality as  the new normal. The goal is to “radicalize and sexualize children.” They use words like “homophobic”, “civil right”, “inclusive” and “tolerance” to silence any and all opposition.

Parents, American families and especially those who are religious (e.g. Muslims, Jews, Christians)  have no say in the matter.

We Fought the Transgender Activists, and Lost. Here Are 5 Lessons for Every Parent.

Our defeat was all but inevitable, yet the transgender activists still showed up in matching shirts and waved multicolored flags. Their speakers outnumbered ours 4 to 1, but they still hissed and muttered ugly names at our side while we spoke.

We had gathered for the Arlington County School Board’s meeting on June 18. For four months, the Arlington Parent Coalition had worked tirelessly to get our liberal school board and administrators to reconsider or delay the implementation of policies that would expand accommodations for transgender-identified students.

Those policies were passed four years ago during the summer, when nobody was paying attention. Their timing was not unintentional.

The steady and focused efforts of transgender activists over the last 20-30 years are now bearing fruit. Some of the policy changes coming to Arlington County include biological boys and girls being allowed into each others’ bathrooms and locker rooms, girls having to compete against transgender boys in sports, and schools compelling speech in favor of transgender pronouns.

Parents are seen as a potential threat to transgender students, and any opposition to transgender accommodations is perceived as hateful bigotry.

Gary McCaleb, senior counsel for the Alliance for Defending Freedom, estimates that hundreds of school systems across the country are now fighting the roll out of transgender ideology.

Communities are woefully unprepared for the impact this will have on our children. There is no road map for grassroots groups to follow as they fight this radical agenda and cultural shift.

However, several lessons emerged from our efforts that might be helpful to other grassroots groups.

1. Courage is contagious.

While some hesitate to engage for fear of being called a “hater” or “bigot,” we must push back on those who want to reshape our children’s understanding of biology, personhood, privacy, and the primary role of parents.

Often, people have an intuitive discomfort with transgender ideology, but need direction on how to act. Give people specific ways they can take one small risk (e.g. write a letter, meet with officials, have a hard conversation), then nudge them to take another risk. Celebrate every act of engagement and resistance. It puts school officials on notice and slows down the rate at which the system accommodates the transgender agenda.

2. Put together a diverse coalition.

The transgender movement divides—the child against him or herself, children against parents, and neighbor against neighbor.

Use the power of common interest across the lines of faith, culture, and politics to create alliances. Christians and Muslims must coordinate. Immigrant parents need to be involved. Liberals and conservatives must find points on which they agree.

People must get out of their social and ideological comfort zones and present a united front on this issue affecting all children.

3. The gatekeepers have failed parents.

Despite significant internal disagreement, professional organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Psychological Association, American Psychiatric Association, and the National School Board Association succumbed to pressure from the transgender advocates to endorse affirmation ideology.

Those entrusted with the job of vetting the research and best practices for treating kids with gender dysphoria have folded under financial or peer influence.

Pressure needs to be brought on these professional groups to retract and/or modify their positions, as local educators and elected officials are deferring to these groups’ statements of support.

However, local doctors and mental health professionals have a powerful voice when speaking about the dangers of affirming transgender children. Get them involved.

4. Spread the truth about gender-affirming therapy.

Educating people is essential, and information about the dangers of affirming gender dysphoria is being suppressed.

For instance, a simple internet search on “transgender children” provides lists of references from transgender advocacy groups like the Human Rights Campaign. It’s much harder to find the alternative point of view.

Parents should prepare talking points and source citations to use with school administrators, their school board, and other parents.

Much more research is needed, but ask school administrators if the scientific studies they use to justify new policies are peer reviewed, have a large sample size, and have tracked children for many years.

In some cases, the studies themselves have been underwritten by gender clinics or transgender advocates.

5. There are no opt outs for our kids.

Parents must understand that we now exist in a “post-opt out” world. You are misled if you believe pulling your children out of certain course units will protect them.

Transgender ideology is coming from the “bottom up” through social media and massive cultural changes.

Public school children are being indoctrinated in transgender ideology by posters on the wall, speakers in the library, books on the shelves, after-school clubs, school-wide celebrations, and politicized teachers. Vigilance and consistent engagement with principals and classroom teachers are critical.

Concerned parents are, to borrow from the musical “Hamilton?,” “out-gunned, out-manned, out-numbered, out-planned.” If you already are stretched in terms of time and attention, the situation can feel too big, too scary, and too inevitable.

At one point, I found myself looking for an exit from the fight when an activist from neighboring Fairfax County gave me a steely look and said, “It is far worse than you understand, and don’t you dare walk away.”

Only parents can demand accountability from school systems and set boundaries around their children. We can’t walk away.

Dear Readers:

With the recent conservative victories related to tax cuts, the Supreme Court, and other major issues, it is easy to become complacent.

However, the liberal Left is not backing down. They are rallying supporters to advance their agenda, moving this nation further from the vision of our founding fathers.

If we are to continue to bring this nation back to our founding principles of limited government and fiscal conservatism, we need to come together as a group of likeminded conservatives.

This is the mission of The Heritage Foundation. We want to continue to develop and present conservative solutions to the nation’s toughest problems. And we cannot do this alone.

We are looking for a select few conservatives to become a Heritage Foundation member. With your membership, you’ll qualify for all associated benefits and you’ll help keep our nation great for future generations.

A Look at Addiction to Social Media

Social media use has become a hot topic in recent years as the amount of profiles across platforms have skyrocketed globally.

The debate here is whether or not this indicates an unhealthy level of addiction. Many younger users in particular (who either do not remember life before social media or literally were not even born when it was introduced) defend it as simply both a modern equivalent of leisure time like television or radio and also a phenomenal tool to communicate and exchange knowledge.

The clear advantages and benefits of social media aside, let’s take a look at how addicted we are and how it’s impacted us as a global society.

Are We Addicted?

While this question is mostly answered through opinion rather than objective fact, there are definitely statistics that could help provide insight.

One way we can determine the level of reliance and addiction is through the age of exposure. In other words, how young are children being exposed to social media nowadays?

According to a report by Influence Central, the average child acquires a smartphone by the age of 10 and opens their first social media account by 11. By the age of 12, a shocking 50% of children have an account on at least one social media platform.

These statistics show that social media isn’t simply a platform for teenagers and adults to interact with each other and exchange information, but also a tool that children often use by the time they reach middle school.

The second way that we can determine this is through the amount of exposure. Of course, everyone is different (some people will be on constantly throughout the day while others aren’t even particularly interested), but the average can speak volumes.

As of April 2019, the number of active users on the top social media platforms are as follows:

  • Facebook: 2.32 billion
  • YouTube: 1.9 billion
  • Instagram: 1 billion
  • Twitter: 330 million
  • LinkedIn: 303 million
  • Snapchat: 287 million

This is just a broad look at social media usage since there are still many other platforms (and, of course, many users overlap), but considering the fact that the current world population is just under 7.4 billion, the numbers become much more startling as percentages:

  • Facebook: 31.6%
  • YouTube: 25.9%
  • Instagram: 13.6%
  • Twitter: 4.5%
  • LinkedIn: 4.1%
  • Snapchat: 3.9%

As a reminder, these statistics are for monthly users, meaning this is the amount of the world (including rural areas who may not even have access) who actively uses these platforms.

What Does This Mean Socially and Culturally?

Though humankind has always had means of distraction (books, newspapers, etc.) that they could turn to as a way to temporarily isolate or entertain themselves, social media has really brought this to a whole new level.

On the positive side of things, the boom of social media has made it insanely easier to experience other worldviews by connecting people from all walks of life in one place. Prior to this technology, many people would fail to ever interact with people from vastly different cultures and life experiences, making it harder to understand different perspectives.

However, that is the “ideal” more than the reality. Many platforms analyze the information that users use and share, providing them with similar content that they know they will enjoy. This seems simple, but it also leads to a problem of echo chambers since people will be receiving viewpoints from the circles and groups they are already a part of, diminishing the benefit of cultural and political exchange.

Additionally, social media has given people a chance to hide behind their screens and even behind fake profiles, opening up an entirely new problem for things like cyberbullying, scamming and general attitudes that they would never exhibit offline.

Social media has also made unhealthy shifts in societal standards since “perfection” is at everyone’s fingertips. People tend to exhibit their highlights on social media, making it seem like everyone is succeeding and thriving except for you. This on top of a constant barrage of social media models, advertisements and other influences can cause a massive hit to self-esteem.

Lastly, you may already realize that social media also threatens real-time interactions. Many people will find themselves distracted by their phones when they are at events or spending time with loved ones rather than living in the moment. Many people will even busy themselves with filming events like concerts to post to their social media stories rather than enjoying it in the moment itself.

This has caused a boost in things like social anxiety and isolation as well as a decline in physical interaction and expertise in things like body language, social cues and even patience.

What Does This Mean Economically?

Any shift throughout history eventually has an impact on the economy, sometimes even completely shifting jobs to new sectors.

For social media, one of the many areas that is deeply impacted by the prevalent use of social media is marketing. With technology and social media making everything exponentially more accessible at your fingertips, everything is consumed much more quickly and superficially, so both goods and their respective marketing strategies are pressured to be more quickly digestible.

Digital marketing is becoming increasingly necessary, and ad campaigns are feeling more and more pressure to focus on things like promo models, internet trends, data mining and quick, quirky sound bites and images/video to catch consumers’ attention.

Lastly, social media addiction is hugely responsible for the spike in online shopping. Companies like Amazon (or any company’s website and delivery features) are able to thrive by advertising on social media platforms (either directly or through influencers) since a simple click can drive consumers to their website.

This is a huge contrast to the way that prior marketing (TV, radio, newspaper, etc.) functioned because even if consumers are successfully influenced, they still actually have to follow through and travel to the business to receive the good or service, leaving room for them to either change their mind or decide against the effort if they are too preoccupied with other responsibilities.

The overall convenience of social media has prompted this shift in the marketplace and in marketing strategies for businesses across industries.

In Summary

The addiction to social media that has developed over recent years is alarming due to its massive reach and influence on social, cultural and economic factors in our society.

Not only is this something that impacts our day to day lives, it affects us on a bigger scale. Currently, the companies who most dominate society are social media tycoons like Facebook, technology providers like Apple or online shopping platforms like Amazon.

Of course, there is good and bad that comes with such a shift. But at what point does progress turn into addiction, and what are we giving up in the process?

VIDEO: More women died from LEGAL abortion than illegal abortion the year abortion was legalized.

Live Action published the below video with commentary:

“If we make abortion illegal, women will seek dangerous back-alley abortions and deaths will skyrocket.” This is a very common argument used to defend abortion today. But how accurate is it?

Let’s unpack this statement with Dr. Kathi Aultman, former abortionist and Medical Director for Planned Parenthood.

Transcript

If we make abortion illegal, won’t women have dangerous back alley abortions?

I used to think that legal abortion was necessary to protect women from the dangers of illegal abortion. I not only thought that abortion was necessary, I also believed it was a woman’s right. I used to perform 1st trimester suction abortions and 2nd trimester dismemberment abortions, and I felt I was doing something good for women. I was also a medical director for Planned Parenthood for about 2 years. I even had an abortion myself.

I came to realize that the whole idea of keeping abortion legal to protect women’s safety was a lie. With every abortion, I was harming a woman and killing a child.

There is no such thing as a “safe abortion.” One person is killed, and the other is at risk for serious complications, including death. A woman cannot kill her child and remain unharmed.

Historically speaking, legalizing abortion did not make it less deadly for women. From the 1940’s to the 1970’s, deaths of women due to abortion rapidly declined because of better medicine and increased use of antibiotics, not because abortion was made legal.

The widespread belief that tens of thousands of women were dying from illegal abortions was a lie propagated mainly by two individuals. Their names were Larry Lader and Bernard Nathanson, co-founders of NARAL, the National Abortion Rights Action League. Like me, Bernard Nathanson eventually converted from abortionist to pro-life advocate. He admitted, “When we spoke of [deaths due to illegal abortion], it was always 5,000 to 10,000 per year. I confess I knew the figures were totally false.”

Bernard Nathanson, Aborting America (1979)

In 1960, over a decade before the Supreme Court decision Roe v Wade legalized abortion in all 50 states, the Medical Director of Planned Parenthood at the time, Mary Calderone, made this statement, and I quote, “Abortion is no longer a dangerous procedure. In 1957 there were only 260 deaths in the whole country attributed to abortions of any kind. 90 percent of all illegal abortions are presently being done by physicians.” End quote

Illegal Abortion as a Public Health Problem” Mary Calderone. 1960 (Paper presented before the Maternal and Child Health Section of the American Public Health Association at the Eighty Seventh Annual Meeting in Atlantic City, N.J. October 19, 1959.

In 1972, the year before Roe v Wade, 39 women died from illegal abortion, and 24 women died from legal abortion. In 1973, the year of Roe v Wade, 19 women died from illegal abortion, and 25 women died from legal abortion. So, in the year that abortion was nationally legalized, more women died from legal abortion than illegal abortion.

The truth is that whether it is legal or illegal, abortion poses long term physical and emotional harm for women, including an increased risk of suicide, future infertility, pregnancy loss, and damage to her internal organs. Women still die from legal abortion today. Tonya Reaves and Cree Erwin are two women who recently died from legal abortions at Planned Parenthood.

Despite legalized abortion, the United States maternal mortality rate is HIGHER than that of nations with MORE restrictive abortion laws. The United States has a maternal mortality rate of around 14 deaths per 100,000 live births, but in Poland, for example, where abortion is illegal except in rare cases, the maternal mortality rate is only 3 deaths per 100,000 live births. Or Malta, where abortion is illegal for any reason, the maternal mortality rate is only 9 deaths per 100,000 live births.

Induced Abortion: Risks That May Impact Adolescents, Young Adults, and Their Children

Maternal mortality ratio (modeled estimate, per 100,000 live births)

After Roe v Wade, the number of abortions in the United States skyrocketed. As of today, over 60 million children have been legally killed by abortion. The reality is, legalizing abortion has not made abortion safer – it has only led to the deaths of more children and has harmed more women. This doesn’t need to continue, however. If we truly care about the safety of women and their children, then we should make abortion illegal.

The Humanitarian Hoax of Planned Parenthood: Killing America With Kindness

The Humanitarian Hoax is a deliberate and deceitful tactic of presenting a destructive policy as altruistic. The humanitarian huckster presents himself as a compassionate advocate when in fact he is the disguised enemy.

Planned Parenthood began in 1916 as the American Birth Control League when Margaret Sanger and her two sisters opened the first birth control clinic in Brooklyn, NY. They distributed birth control, birth control advice, and birth control information. Abortion was illegal and throughout her incumbency Margaret Sanger maintained that abortion would not be necessary if women had access to birth control. In 1942 the name American Birth Control League was changed to Planned Parenthood Federation of America. What happened?

Planned Parenthood began advocating for abortion law reform in the early 1950s. At first they focused on therapeutic abortions – medically necessary abortions in the first trimester before the fetus is viable outside the womb. By the 1960s, Planned Parenthood advocated liberalizing abortion laws to include non-therapeutic abortions.

The first birth control pill was commissioned by Margaret Sanger and funded by suffragist Katherine McCormick, heir to the International Harvester fortune. On May 9, 1960 the FDA approved the pill and women’s reproductive freedom became foundational to the Women’s Liberation Movement, the sexual revolution, and the anti-establishment counterculture movement which supported Planned Parenthood’s rejection of all limits on abortion.

By 1969 Planned Parenthood was demanding total repeal of all abortion laws.

In 1973 the Supreme Court issued its landmark decision in Roe vs Wade and abortion was legalized in America. Women had the right to choose whether to have an abortion, but the right was not absolute because of the competing interests of protecting prenatal life, and also the government’s interest in protecting women’s health. The Court issued restrictions that addressed the complexity of the issue in what is known as a balancing test.

“The Court resolved this balancing test by tying state regulation of abortion to the three trimesters of pregnancy: during the first trimester, governments could not prohibit abortions at all; during the second trimester, governments could require reasonable health regulations; during the third trimester, abortions could be prohibited entirely so long as the laws contained exceptions for cases when they were necessary to save the life or health of the mother.”

In 2019 New York lifted every restriction and legalized all abortions including late term abortions. Seven states and Washington, D.C. followed New York’s horrifying example:

  • New York
  • Alaska
  • Colorado
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • Oregon
  • Vermont
  • Washington, D.C.

This unnerving decision means it is legal to abort a viable baby up to birth and even after birth in some cases. Late term abortions are NO ONE’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE – they are legalized murder. A baby just before birth is not a cluster of undifferentiated cells – it is a fully formed viable human being. How did murder become legal in the United States of America?

Planned Parenthood began as Margaret Sanger’s women’s health initiative to provide necessary birth control, birth control advice, and birth control information. It has become radicalized along with the radicalization of the Democrat party which sponsors its initiatives. Why is this important?

One of these initiatives is SIECUS Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States.

SIECUS was started in 1964 by Dr. Mary Calderone who was the Medical Director for the Planned Parenthood Federation. SIECUS publishes books and journals on sexuality and sex education that are used by professionals, parents, and the public. They have developed curricula for medical schools and college students. SIECUS is responsible for the Guidelines for Comprehensive Education: Kindergarten-12th Grade that are part of the Common Core curriculum taught in public schools throughout America. Here is the problem.

Planned Parenthood is in the education business and is actively indoctrinating American children in their radical views on sex, sexuality, and gender. SIECUS interim president Christine Soyong Harley unapologetically announced the group’s conviction that “Sex ed is a vehicle for social change.” WHAT???

I will repeat: SIECUS interim president stated that sex education is a vehicle for social change and promotes her activism saying:

“While sex education is a necessary sexual health tool, it can (and should) be so much more than that. With sex education, we have a golden opportunity to create a culture shift-tackling the misinformation, shame, and stigma that create the basis for many of today’s sexual and reproductive health and rights issues, like:

  • Reproductive justice
  • LGBTQ equality
  • Sexual violence prevention
  • Gender equity
  • Dismantling white supremacy”

Harley goes on to say that they already have the way to do this – it is their Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) that is currently indoctrinating your children K-12! REALLY??

It gets worse. Planned Parenthood is no longer the Sanger sisters’ birth control clinic in their Brooklyn clinic. Planned Parenthood is now a global health provider and the single biggest provider of reproductive health services, including abortion, in the United States. Planned Parenthood is an activist political organization disguised as a women’s health initiative.

Planned Parenthood consists of 159 medical and non-medical affiliates, which operate over 600 health clinics in the United States. It partners with organizations in 12 countries globally. The organization directly provides a variety of reproductive health services and sexual education, contributes to research in reproductive technology and advocates for the protection and expansion of reproductive rights.”

Planned Parenthood’s international outreach is conducted by Planned Parenthood Global, and by The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) which has 149 Member Associations working in over 189 countries. So what is the problem?

Planned Parenthood is an active participant in UN Agenda 2030 and its globalized educational programs designed to create a New World Order. Planned Parenthood has a globalist agenda.

Using sex education to indoctrinate children into radical leftist/globalist ideology is a colossal abuse of power and exploitation of young children. What Planned Parenthood considers appropriate sex education is very different from what most parents worldwide consider appropriate especially for young children. Let’s take a look.

This shocking video will help the uninitiated become acquainted with the sinister humanitarian hoax of Planned Parenthood worldwide. Planned Parenthood presents itself as a humanitarian organization dedicated to advancing women’s health while they target your children using perverse sex education as their vehicle to effect seismic social change.

Dr. Duke Pesta has written a scathing assessment of Common Core’s sex ed in “Shocking K-12 Common Core Sexual Education Standards.” Pesta explains that sex education is integrated into every subject taught including English, language, science, math, social studies, and biology. There is no opting out of their perverse sex ed because it crosses all subjects. Pesta writes, “According to child psychologists, the children are not mentally equipped to understand the detailed sexual indoctrination starting in kindergarten, they are indoctrinated in sexual practices that they should never be exposed to.”

Now let’s look at the misleading marketing campaign used by Planned Parenthood’s SIECUS to sell its destructive sexual indoctrination.

The National Sexuality Education Standard: Core content and skills K-12 provides the rationale, standards, and goal for sexuality education in public schools:

“The goal of the National Sexuality Education Standards: Core Content and Skills K-12 is to provide clear, consistent and straightforward guidance on the essential minimum, core content for sexuality education that is age-appropriate for students in grades K-12.”

Sounds great – but then humanitarian hoaxes always do.

The stated goals do not reflect the broader culture shift that is the actual goal of the leftist/globalist sexual education program. Sexual identity is the first thing that is announced in any language anywhere in the world when a baby is born. “It’s a boy!” ”It’s a girl!” There is a minuscule portion of the world’s population that has ambiguous sex organs that would leave the baby’s sexual identity unclear.

The perverse movement to confuse children about their primary identity is a sinister attempt to destabilize society and create social chaos. Social chaos is the prerequisite for imposing a new world order envisioned by the globalist elite. The New World Order is not so new. Bertrand Russel wrote about it in his 1952 classic, The Impact of Science on Society. The New World Order is an internationalized world with one language, one currency, one flag, one language, one educational system, one culture, one country ruled by the globalist elite themselves under the auspices of the United Nations.

Dr. John Coleman describes the nexus of the conspiratorial elite seeking world domination in his books Conspirators’ Hierarchy: The Story of The Committee of 300, and Tavistock Institute: Social Engineering the Masses.

The attack on sexuality was articulated decades ago by Tavistock Institute as an effective tactic in their efforts to breakdown the psychological strength of the individual and render him helpless to oppose the rulers of the new world order. The strategy of the Culture War is to attack the infrastructure of American life – family, religion, patriotism, and sexual behavior. Why sexual behavior?

Sexual behavior is a reflection of social norms in society. Monogamous sex in marriage is a commitment that values loyalty to the spouse and family unit. It is also a reflection of the Judeo-Christian moral prohibition against infidelity. Not all couples manage fidelity but it is still considered immoral. The breakdown of the family and the rejection of the moral teachings of religion invite detachment and promiscuous sex. The destruction of traditional morality and the normalization of deviance is a deliberate strategy in the Culture War against America.

The humanitarian hoax of Planned Parenthood is a sinister attack designed to destroy America from within that has gone global with the help of the United Nations and their Agenda 2030. The New World Order is impossible without the breakdown of American society. Planned Parenthood and SIECUS are soldiers in the leftist Culture War against America.

Tactical accusations of white supremacy are foundational to the leftist narrative. They are even part of the destructive sexual education program designed to create chaos in America. This is how it works.

The leftist narrative is designed to collapse American and create catastrophic tensions that will erupt in a race war – the goal of the white supremacy narrative. The race war will lead to anarchy and the country will become ungovernable. At that point Martial law will be declared and the leftist objective of socialism will be imposed.

The problem, of course, is that the leftists are just useful idiots for the globalists. Leaders like Christine Soyong Harley will no longer be useful to the revolution. They are collateral damage. The globalists will then impose one world government which was their goal all along – no more leftists – no more Islamists – no more Planned Parenthood. Just a catastrophic return to feudalism with a very small ruling elite – and the mass population who serve them. There is no middle class in feudalism – no upward mobility – no freedom of any kind. Just masters and slaves as the globalist elite desired.

Planned Parenthood is doing the dirty work of the globalist elite – they are just too arrogant and too angry to notice that they are participating in their own destruction. The noisy leftist Democrats who support Planned Parenthood and promote its destructive agenda are also useful idiots of the globalist elite who fund their pricey political campaigns. The duped Democrats are mercenaries who haven’t figured out that when this war is over they will also be dispensable.

The winner in the fight for the soul of America will be determined by the election outcome in 2020. America-first President Donald Trump is the existential enemy of the leftist/Islamist/globalist axis that is trying to collapse our country and establish a new world order. Do not let them. Do not be fooled by the humanitarian hoax of Planned Parenthood. Vote straight Republican and take back the House so that President Trump can keep America great.

LGBT Activists Could Be to Blame for Falling LGBT Acceptance

In a recent hit single, “You Need to Calm Down,” Taylor Swift mocks people who stand firm in their beliefs about sexuality, asking that they stop their bigotry and “calm down.”

The music video, which went viral, depicts conservatives as ignorant hicks who reject gays and are driven by animus. They are ugly, dated, and lack basic hygiene. By contrast, the LGBT folks in the video are bright, happy, and boast perfectly coiffed hair.

Moreover, the angry hicks are a dwindling minority, while the upbeat LGBT folks are shown to be ascendant—on the right side of history, you might say.

Despite these crass portrayals, which only confirm the left’s worst prejudices, a new survey released Monday suggests that young people are not actually falling in line with the LGBT movement as the common narrative suggests. In fact, they’re increasingly uncomfortable with it.

According to the annual Accelerating Acceptance report, conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of LGBT advocacy group GLAAD, the number of Americans 18 to 34 who are comfortable with LGBT people in various situations slipped from 53% in 2017 down to 45% in 2018. And the 53% figure is down from 63% in 2016.

The survey asked men and women of various age brackets whether they are uncomfortable with the following:

  • Learning a family member is LGBT.
  • Having your child placed in class with an LGBT teacher.
  • Learning your doctor is LGBT.
  • Learning your child had a LGBT history lesson in school.

The largest drop in “acceptance” appears to be among the youngest age bracket.

In 2018, 36% of young people said they were uncomfortable learning a family member was LGBT, compared with 29% in 2017. Likewise, 34% were uncomfortable learning their doctor was LGBT vs. only 27% a year earlier.

In addition, 39% said they would be uncomfortable learning their child had a school lesson on LGBT history vs. 27% two years prior.

It appears young women have dropped the most in their comfortability with LGBT people. In 2017, 64% were comfortable compared to 52% in 2018.

Also of note, in 2017, people ages 72 and up were the most uncomfortable learning a child had an LGBT lesson in school.

John Gerzema, CEO of The Harris Poll, expressed concern over these numbers to USA TODAY: “We count on the narrative that young people are more progressive and tolerant. These numbers are very alarming and signal a looming social crisis in discrimination.”

USA Today reported that when Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD, looked closer, she discovered the younger age bracket actually interacted more with LBGT people, “particularly individuals who are non-binary and don’t identify simply as lesbian or gay.”

She blamed their lower comfort level on “a newness that takes time for people to understand.”

Both Gerzema and Ellis blamed the lack of tolerance on the Trump administration’s policy efforts regarding transgender people in the military and religious liberty issues.

But this makes no sense. If politics is really downstream from culture, and there is more equality in America than ever before, wouldn’t the culture reflect and accept that notion of being more tolerant?

A better way to understand the survey results might be to look at how pushy, even aggressive, the LGBT movement has been in ensuring its rights supersede the rights of others.

Whether it’s lawsuits for “bathroom rights” or lawsuits against religious people who can’t in good conscience bake a certain cake, the LGBT community is not advocating “equal rights” but supreme rights that marginalize everyone else’s.

This aggressive push for LGBT “equality” may actually be backfiring, causing even young people to feel discomfort and alienation.

At first glance, Swift’s song might seem to align with this study, since she too is decrying society’s rejection of LGBT people. But what she ignores, just like Ellis, is that people are uncomfortable for a reason that is likely of the LGBT movement’s own making.

The LGBT movement is now defined by fighting against gender norms, demanding that children in drag become an accepted new normal, and filing lawsuits so that biological males can use women’s restrooms.

This kind of aggressive, entitled behavior is difficult to acquiesce to, especially when it infringes upon the rights of others who would rather not participate.

Instead of hoping people would become more “comfortable” around the LGBT community, it may be worthwhile for GLAAD and other groups to consider the effect their campaign is having on other people. Maybe they’re the ones that “need to calm down.”

Dear Readers:

With the recent conservative victories related to tax cuts, the Supreme Court, and other major issues, it is easy to become complacent.

However, the liberal Left is not backing down. They are rallying supporters to advance their agenda, moving this nation further from the vision of our founding fathers.

If we are to continue to bring this nation back to our founding principles of limited government and fiscal conservatism, we need to come together as a group of likeminded conservatives.

This is the mission of The Heritage Foundation. We want to continue to develop and present conservative solutions to the nation’s toughest problems. And we cannot do this alone.

We are looking for a select few conservatives to become a Heritage Foundation member. With your membership, you’ll qualify for all associated benefits and you’ll help keep our nation great for future generations.

The Endless Third World Invasion of the United States

You can be in the country illegally, you can have an extensive criminal history, you can have multiple criminal convictions for serious offenses, and there is nothing that we can do to touch you. – Chris Crane, president of the ICE Council, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents’ union

A country isn’t sovereign if we can’t control who comes in and who’s allowed to come in. – Phyllis Schlafly

Immigration laws are the only laws that are discussed in terms of how to help people who break them. – Thomas Sowell

57 percent of all households that are led by an immigrant (legal or illegal) are enrolled in at least one welfare program. – Michael Snyder


To hell with sovereignty, justice and the safety of America’s citizenry.  Open borders allow cheap labor for American corporations, especially Koch Industries.  Libertarians Charles and David Koch bequeath massive election donations to many Republicans, and now to some Democrats, to keep our southern border a sieve. Enriching Republican coffers allows Koch Industries to be able to hire cheap foreign labor, whether legal or illegal.

Tucker Carlson recently had a six-minute segment exposing the Koch brothers. They consider controlling the border as racist, the notion of “America first” as fascist, and that drugs should be legalized, but what he didn’t tell you was that these Libertarians are devout pro-aborts, and heavily fund organizations promoting a new Constitutional Convention. Link and Link.  Statesmen like the 55 delegates who attended the 1787 Convention would be impossible to find today.  Amnesty remains the Koch brothers’ top priority, anathema to America’s citizenry and job security.  The Koch brothers hold views that have no resemblance whatsoever to what most conservative Constitutionalists believe.

Criminal Invasion

Our Senate Republicans are now weaker than Barack Obama was on the border. The criminal element, including child sex traffickers, MS-13 gang members, drug cartels, terrorists and third world country diseases, long ago eliminated in America, are just collateral damage to those who profit from illegal aliens.

Department of Homeland Security documents produced for the House Oversight Committee revealed that in October of 2018, the Customs and Border Patrol’s Office of Intelligence tracked one caravan with approximately 8,000 migrants who arrived just south of California by December of 2018 and established that 660 of the migrants had U.S. criminal convictions, and at least three are murderers.

President Trump declared a national emergency in February of this year to divert funds from the Pentagon to build a border wall, yet the Democrats are fighting him at every turn.  Congress also refuses to change the dangerous asylum laws attracting these migrants.  New voters…draining the country’s taxpayers dry.

Third World Diseases in America

It’s not just mumps, measles, scabies, the flu, strep throat, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections, different viruses, polio, Chagas disease, tuberculosis along with the possibility of typhus that border agents have to deal with, now it is the deadly Ebola virus from African illegals.  They made their way to the U.S. via Ecuador.  Hundreds of illegals from the Ebola ridden Congo and Angola have been dumped in San Antonio, Texas with 350 more on the way.  They made it across the Rio Grande River more than two weeks ago.

After being placed in San Antonio, the illegal immigrants are bused to a destination of their choice by local charities who spend “roughly $14,000 a week on bus tickets.  Interim Assistant City Manager Dr. Colleen Bridger said another 2,300 from the Congo and Angola will be coming to San Antonio and it’s overwhelming the city.  When she asked Portland, Oregon to take some of them, they refused, saying they were already overwhelmed.

The World Health Organization said one in four Ebola infections in the Congo are going undetected and that the country is experiencing the second-worst Ebola epidemic on record.  Yet, we are transferring these illegals throughout our country.  Ebola spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission.
The virus may linger in men’s semen for more than two years; a new study suggests, but none of these Congo illegals are tested for disease.

Even if Ebola isn’t an issue, there’s plenty of other contagious diseases from other parts of the world that are almost unheard of in the US. And right now, immigration agents are so overwhelmed with the sheer number of migrants that it’s difficult for them to conduct full-blown medical screenings.

The situation underscores the need for the federal government to put proper medical screenings in place to ensure that no one slips through the border undetected with a contagious health condition.

During European immigration to the U.S. through Ellis Island, if anyone was ill, they were quarantined for 40 days. Back then, if it was a spreadable disease, they were sent back to their country of origin to protect America’s citizens. Ellis Island was opened in 1892, and shut in 1954.

Legal immigrants receive medical examinations before they can enter the country, but not the illegals flooding our border and pleading asylum. In Texas, 550 African migrants were just caught and the Texas DHS head says they aren’t being screened for Ebola.

Who Funded the Trip?

Why isn’t the media asking who funded the airline trips for these people, and the food and necessities for this long trek from the Congo? Who is organizing these massive cross-continent trips aimed at helping hundreds of refugees to cross over our border, and if they are legitimate arrivals, what medical vetting is taking place before they make the trip?  None!

They didn’t swim across the Atlantic, that’s for sure.

Watch this French speaking Swiss journalist asking the Congolese illegals how they got here and who paid for it, despite the fact they have rolls of hundred dollar bills in their pockets.  They would not answer him as you can see in this five-minute video.

Note that these Congolese are saying, “Now we’re here, give us money to survive.”  They are given a paper telling them not to cooperate with ICE, that they are the police from the government.  Portland, Maine is being repopulated with these illegals and can’t accept more.

Los Angeles, California

Typhus, and even bubonic plague are showing up in Los Angeles.  Why?  In October of 2017, former California Governor Jerry Brown signed the bill that made all of California a sanctuary state.  According to the California Hospital Association, in 2014 health care for illegal aliens cost state taxpayers well over $1 billion a year. Eighty-four hospitals across California have already been forced to close because of unpaid bills by illegal aliens.  Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona have a crisis equally as dire.  The Texas Governor recently ordered 1,000 National Guard troops to the border.

Trash is a growing problem for residents in Los Angeles and as the garbage piles up, so do the rats, fueling concerns about flea-borne typhus, according to reports.

But the real problem is illegal alien homelessness and the trash and excrement from them living on the streets.  Deputy City Attorney Liz Greenwood, a veteran prosecutor, told NBC4 she was diagnosed with typhus in November, after experiencing high fevers and excruciating headaches.  Greenwood believes she contracted typhus from fleas in her office at City Hall East. Fleas often live on rats, which congregate in the many heaps of trash that are visible across the city of LA, and are a breeding ground for typhus.  Last year set a new record for the number of typhus cases, 124 in LA County for the year, according to the California Department of Public Health, and this does not even consider the health risks from mountains of human feces in San Francisco.

Dr. Drew Pinsky predicts a major infectious disease epidemic in filthy Los Angeles this summer, putting at risk thousands of lives.  Even the New York Times admits these Democrat run cities are unlivable.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary McAleenan

Former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan accused McAleenan of resisting ICE and leaking about upcoming raids to the media prior to their taking place.  The nationwide operation was aimed at over 2,000 who have defied orders of removal and are remaining in the country illegally. The Washington Post and other media have reported that McAleenan doesn’t support the operation.

Five officials who spoke with the Washington Examiner confirmed McAleenan’s decision to go rogue and stymie the operation was what prompted the White House to call off the operation.  They said ICE was set to begin raids with court-ordered removals in 10 cities, including Houston, Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles.  Trump now says Congress has two weeks to reach a solution. Good luck with that!

One official claimed McAleenan “cares more about what liberals, the media, and ‘Never Trumpers’ in Congress think of him than achieving the express mission of his department.”

McAleenan needs to hear, “You’re fired.”

Tom Homan said he was glad when President Trump tweeted that the ICE agency would begin “removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the U.S.”  He said, “I’ve been pushing for months for ICE to conduct a nationwide deportation operation like the one the president has announced, to include family units that have been given their due process rights at great taxpayer expense and have been ordered removed by a federal judge.”

Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC) claims Trump’s pledge to begin “removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States” is being received with skepticism by former and current Trump supporters who have been alienated or disappointed by Trump’s numerous broken campaign promises on immigration.  They believe Trump’s tweet is also new posturing designed to pressure Democrats into joining the Trump-Kushner-Graham Amnesty deal for millions of illegals about which ALIPAC is working to warn Americans.

Easy Access and Benefits for Illegals

News reports have indicated that Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has been allowing migrants to board flights using a ‘Form I-862, Notice to Appear,’ which informs a released illegal alien of when to appear in court and is not one of the 15 forms of identification TSA accepts for air travel,” the conservative lawmakers wrote in a letter to DHS. “The safety and security of the American public should always be our priority.”

The Center for Immigration Studies states that the cost in 2018 per illegal alien was $69,570, or $69.6 billion per million illegal immigrants.  I would guess there are 60 million or more now in our country, how much is that costing us?  The American taxpayer is being raped by lawbreakers.

Democratic presidential candidate Kirstin Gillibrand wants to expand Social Security to people living in the United States illegally.  She is an immigration hawk and wants illegals to have the same rights as citizens.

Nancy Pelosi has actually thanked the parents of “Dreamers” for illegally bringing their children to America.

Since an illegal immigrant under former President Obama’s executive action can now get a Social Security number, the immigrant road map is clear, they may receive the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) without ever having paid taxes.  The EITC is the one that is responsible for billions in fraudulent refunds.

Judicial Watch reports that transgender illegal aliens get special treatment and hormone therapy, which isn’t cheap, under a policy started by Obama and continued by Trump’s Border Czar.  ICE gives transgender illegal aliens their own detention center in New Mexico that offers hair and makeup classes, a recreation area, gym, television rooms, a lab and pharmacy.

Just this month, the New York State Assembly passed a bill that would allow illegal immigrants in America to obtain driver’s licenses.

The Supreme Court has ruled that an immigrant living in the U.S. illegally who had a gun, a crime, can’t be prosecuted if he didn’t know he was in the country illegally. Huh? In a 7-2 decision the justices said in a crime where the status of a person is the “crucial element” to the offense, the government must prove the person was aware of that. Otherwise, it might just be an innocent mistake. The ruling could affect thousands of previous convictions.

Top all this off, with the National Review’s defense of birthright citizenship.  Neo-con founder William F. Buckley was a CFR member, a Yale Skull and Bonesman, and a CIA Agent, so this is not surprising, although there is nothing in the 14th amendment that guarantees birthright citizenship.  The anchor baby scam was invented 35 years ago by liberal zealot, Justice William Brennan, who slipped a footnote into a 1982 Supreme Court opinion announcing that the children born to illegals on U.S. soil are citizens.  Unconstitutional poppycock.

Conclusion

Laws are meaningless if there are no consequences or deterrence for violating them.

Modern Slavery in America: Promoting pedophilia, pederasty, prostitution and human labor trafficking [Videos]

The U.S. Department of State released its 2019 Trafficking in Persons Report. Secretary Michael R. Pompeo in the introduction writes:

Human trafficking is one of the most heinous crimes on Earth. Right now traffickers are robbing a staggering 24.9 million people of their freedom and basic human dignity—that’s roughly three times the population of New York City.

The report defines human trafficking:

The United States considers “trafficking in persons,” “human trafficking,” and “modern slavery” to be interchangeable umbrella terms that refer to both sex and labor trafficking. The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, as amended, and the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children, supplementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime describe this compelled service using a number of different terms, including involuntary servitude, slavery or practices similar to slavery, debt bondage, and forced labor.

There has been much discussion of reparations by some of the Democrats running for President of the United States with Senators Cory Booker, Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren leading the way. Senator Warren has introduced a bill to give reparations to homosexual (i.e. same sex) couples. What none of these candidates, nor those who support reparations, talk about is “modern slavery” or white slavery. Modern slavery takes many forms, is color blind and affects every American citizen. Modern slavery is big business. Just look at America’s southern border to see modern slavery in full view.

Today those who are promoting modern slavery include public schools, colleges and universities, American corporations, politicians, organized crime, pro-illegal alien organizations and sanctuary cities, counties and states.

Promoting pedophilia, pederasty, prostitution

Definitions Merriam-Webster:

pedophiliasexual perversion in which children are the preferred sexual object

pederasta man who desires or engages in sexual activity with a boy

prostitutionthe act or practice of engaging in promiscuous sexual relations especially for money

The Trafficking in Persons Report notes:

In the United States, traffickers prey upon children in the foster care system. Recent reports have consistently indicated that a large number of victims of child sex trafficking were at one time in the foster care system.

The United States Institute Against Human Trafficking website states the following:

There are an estimated 4.8 million victims of sex trafficking worldwide, with the United States leading all other nations in driving demand – i.e. the U.S. is the biggest consumer of sex worldwide. The demand for purchasing women, men and children for sex is continuing to escalate due to our hypersexualized society, and the demand for sex with even younger children is increasing.  This is attracting more sex traffickers to the industry who see a financial opportunity to cash in on the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world.

One of the best ways to drive the demand for sex “with even younger children” as a society is to start as early as possible in our public schools. Watch this video titled “The sick pedophile agenda at the heart of ‘sex education.’” WARNING: Discretion advised. Deeply disturbing.

Where and when did this all start?

Dr. Judith Reisman, former principal investigator for the U.S. Department of Justice, in her March, 25th, 2016 column titled “They’re mainstreaming pedophilia! wrote :

Alfred Kinsey’s ongoing sexual anarchy campaign has no end in sight.

Matt Barber, associate dean of the Liberty University School of Law, and I attended the “B4U-ACT” pedophile conference Aug. 17 [2015]. To eliminate the “stigma” against pedophiles, this growing sexual anarchist lobby wants the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to redefine pedophilia as a normal sexual orientation of “Minor-Attracted Persons.”

Adhering to the Kinsey principle of lulling “straights” into a false sense of security, pedophile dress was largely conservative – short hair, jackets, some ties and few noticeable male ear piercings.

Matt Barber and I sat in the back of the meeting room among roughly 50 activists and their “mental health” attending female enablers. “Pedophilia, Minor-Attracted Persons, and the DSM: Issues and Controversies,” keynoted “Fred Berlin, M.D., Ph.D., as founder, National Institute for the Study, Prevention and Treatment of Sexual Trauma; Johns Hopkins Sexual Disorders Clinic.”

However, the sex clinic was initially founded by John Money, Ph.D., to give judges “leeway” to keep child molesters out of jail. Money (deceased), a pedophile advocate, also called for an end to all age-of-consent laws. Dr. Berlin was his disciple.

In 1973, our “post Kinsey era,” a small APA committee of psychiatrists, quite terrified by homosexist public harassment, agreed to rely on Kinsey’s fraudulent human sexuality “data” to redefine homosexuality as normal, removing it from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) of mental disorders.

The APA decision was hyped in college textbooks, law journal articles, judicial rulings, and by 1974 pitched as high-school sex education. Soon the homosexist lobby would sail into primary schools and kindergartens by agitating recurring AIDS “prevention,” “bullying” and “hate” panics.

In July, 2010 the Harvard Medical School published “Pessimism about pedophilia” made these key points:

  • Pedophilia is a sexual orientation and unlikely to change. Treatment aims to enable someone to resist acting on his sexual urges.
  • No intervention is likely to work on its own; outcomes may be better when the patient is motivated and treatment combines psychotherapy and medication.
  • Parents should be aware that in most sexual abuse cases involving children, the perpetrator is someone the child knows.

The Catholic Church and Boy Scouts of America

The impact of pedophilia, pederasty, prostitution on key institutions is now coming to light. According to USA Today the Catholic Church could be investigated by as many as forty-five states for pederasty (adult gay priests having sex with younger boys) or sex abuse. The Boy Scouts of America is facing bankruptcy since it has allowed gay scout masters.

The Federalist published an article on January 2nd, 2019 titled “The Boy Scouts’ Bankruptcy Is Not Just Financial. It’s Moral” by Alfred Siewers. Siewers wrote:

What’s left of the Boy Scouts of America (now operating as Scouts BSA) is on the brink of declaring bankruptcy, according to recent news reports. With estimated assets of more than $1 billion, Scouting’s problems go beyond the financial, deep into the problems with America’s civil culture today.

[ … ]

The old American Boy Scouts might as well be filing for moral bankruptcy, having lost both its base and elite cultural capital. What used to be an organization designed to help boys become men has now been re-fashioned in line with the new gnosticism of American culture, accepting LGTBQIA ideology, while abandoning its traditional ascetic position about sex and its opposition to atheism.

Church Militant has done a series of videos on gay priests and bishops (pederasts) in the Church and their coverup of abuses of underage boys and seminarians. Here is one interview by Michael Voris from Church Militant on a priest in hiding for exposing pederasts in the Church:

In a March 18th, 2019 The Catholic Thing column titled “Sodom: The Official Guide” Brad Minor did a review on a book by a French author claiming the Vatican is 80% “gay” reporting:

Mr. Martel’s book purports to be an objective exposé that is the result of “1500 interviews in the Vatican and in 30 countries” over four years, during which Martel and his team of 80 “researchers, correspondents, advisers, fixers and translators” spoke to “421 cardinals, 52 bishops and monsignori, 45 apostolic nuncios and foreign ambassadors.” All were in-person interviews. (A note of skepticism: there are currently just 222 living cardinals, so unless Martel was doing séances . . .)

Nearly all those interviewed are members of what, according to Martel, they themselves call “the Parish,” which is what Pope Francis, in that famous (“who am I to judge?”) interview on the flight from Rio to Rome, denied even existed: a “gay lobby.” According to Martel’s accounting, it’s not just a lobby, it’s a small city.

How large is it? Martel says the Vatican has a homosexual “community” larger than the Castro neighborhood of San Francisco. Not for nothing is the book’s French title Sodoma – no need for translation.

Conclusion

America has a serious modern slavery problem in its educational institutions, churches, communities and culture. Even magazines like Teen Vogue are promoting prostitution (i.e. modern slavery). The only way to stop the tsunami of pedophilia, pederasty, prostitution and human labor trafficking is to become a “moral people” again.

in a column titled “Restoring Civilization: We Can’t MAGA Unless We MAMA” wrote:

They can sense it. They can feel it. Something is seriously wrong in our civilization, and many people know it.

[ … ]

Years ago I had a brief “state of the nation” discussion with a very fine, older country gentleman. While no philosopher, he did offer the following diagnosis. Struggling for words and gesticulating a bit, he said, “There’s…there’s no morality.”

Most believe morality is important both personally and nationally. We generally agree that an immoral man treads a dangerous path; of course, it’s likewise for two immoral men, five, 53 or 1,053 — or a whole nation-full.

Echoing many Founders, George Washington noted that “morality is a necessary spring of popular government.” The famous apocryphal saying goes, “America is great because America is good, and if she ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.” For sure, we can’t MAGA unless we MAMA — Make America Moral Again.

We must MAMA or else devolve into a nation driven by modern slavery of the sexual kind.

Colorado kids and teens are dying at a rate higher than U.S. average – and suicide is to blame

Suicide is the leading cause of death in Colorado among children and young adults ages 10 to 24. This comes to light with the release of the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s 2019 Kids Count Data Book, which compares children’s well-being across all 50 states.

In 2017, the state’s teen suicide rate rose to 21 deaths per 100,000 from 12 deaths per 100,000 in 2014 [coincidentally the year marijuana legalization took effect]. The 2017 rate is the highest since Colorado began tracking suicide deaths by age group in 1980.

The Kids Count report puts Colorado 20th overall in child well-being but 41st among states for children’s health. “The poor heath rating is a result of Colorado’s high death rate among kids and teens, lower-than-average birth weight for babies, and above-average use of alcohol and drugs among teens,” notes the Colorado Sun.

The number of low-birth-weight babies increased to 9.1 percent in 2017, up from 8.8 percent in 2010. The 2017 national average was 8.3 percent.

On the educational front the report ranked Colorado as 44th in on-time high-school graduation rates. One-fifth of the state’s high-school students do not graduate in four years.

Potent pot, vulnerable teens trigger concerns in first states to legalize marijuana

“The first two states to legalize recreational marijuana,” writes the Washington Post,“are starting to grapple with teenagers’ growing use of highly potent pot, even as both boost the industry and reap huge tax windfalls from its sales.”

The legal purchase age of 21 is about as effective deterring adolescent marijuana use as it is deterring adolescent alcohol use. Parents, educators, and doctors say kids can easily access edibles and concentrates with levels of THC that can average 68 percent.

Calls to poison control centers and visits to ERs have risen. Denver’s Children’s Hospital Colorado has treated 777 problems such as cyclic vomiting, paranoia, psychosis, and other marijuana-related symptoms in kids, up from 161 in 2005, a few years before the state commercialized marijuana for medical use.

Seattle’s Children’s Hospital also is seeing a jump in marijuana-related emergencies. “I hope we don’t lose a generation of people before we become clear we need to protect our kids’ brains,” says Leslie Walker-Harding, who chairs the hospital’s pediatrics department.

Colorado leads 37 states in adolescent vaping. Some school officials say half their students vape during school hours, using marijuana as well as nicotine.

Legislators in both states passed laws this year to encourage marijuana industry expansion and loosen regulations, including a law allowing marijuana home delivery in Colorado.

Marijuana use among pregnant women doubles

A new study released yesterday finds that marijuana use doubled among pregnant women between 2002 and 2017 and is most common in the first trimester.

Past-month marijuana use increased from 3.4 percent to 7 percent among pregnant women overall.

The data came from an analysis of the National Survey on Drug Use and Health between 2002 and 2017, which involved nearly half a million women.

Pure cannabis cigarettes to be introduced to Canadian cannabis market

THC BioMed, a Canadian licensed marijuana producer, announced this week that it will automate the pre-rolling of 100 percent cannabis cigarettes – with filters.

The company says it believes this will change the game in the same way automation changed the tobacco industry and will “bring meaningful changes to the current cannabis industry and its bottom line.” The cigarettes will contain no tobacco.

In addition to retail use, the cigarettes will be marketed for medical use, marking a new first in which doctors will tell patients to smoke to treat their health problems.

THC BioMed’s automation plant can produce up to 5,000 cigarettes per minute.

U.S. schools achieve high Marx

Vladimir Lenin said, “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”

To understand a culture, one must look to its treatment of the children.  In Africa, for instance, there are countries such as Sudan, Libya, Mali, Chad, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Liberia, Mozambique and Uganda, where war profiteers use child soldiers to battle their government.  They may be recruited or kidnapped, some forced to kill family members so that they may never return to their homes.  Most are boys but as many as 40% may be girls who are also used as sex slaves for the military.  These are majority- or significantly-Muslim countries.

In Islam, military might is the rock upon which the faithful community is instituted.  Whereas the religious message of Judaism and Christianity promotes the faith, it is the political and military strength that promote the Islamic religious message.  Violent jihad is not a secondary concept in Islam’s development, but exists in the very origin of Islam, the sine qua non of the faith, which is why the Islamic culture cannot and must not adapt and accept modernity or embrace tolerance.  The children are taught to carry out violence and terror, to slaughter Jews and work towards the extermination of Israel, to kill all infidels who prevent their seizure of land, and to welcome martyrdom as needed to discharge their duty.  The Internet has disturbing footage of young Muslim children wearing jihadi scarves, singing about killing [Jews] for Allah, and capturing “Palestine” – in Philadelphia.  Boy & Girl Scouts in Michigan are learning to support terror.

Under Nazism, all youth groups were banned and replaced by the Hitler Youth, which took millions of children away from parental influence, indoctrinated them into Hitler’s ideology, and trained them for the paramilitary.  They numbered 50,000 in January 1933, and in June, Hitler warned, “If the older generation cannot get accustomed to us, we shall take their children away from them and rear them as needful to the Fatherland.”  By that year’s end, they numbered two million and formed the nucleus of a dedicated and fanatic Nazi force.

Stalin was another who understood the value of child indoctrination.  For the Marxist Revolution to succeed, the youth had to be treated well and educated politically. The Communist Party formalized a cult that idealized Soviet childhood beginning with kindergarten, and in youth organizationsBearing the chilling name of “Child Science,” children were viewed as mere resources for use by the State.  As parents went to work or “disappeared,” the children were kept from their family structure, taught loyalty to the state through heroic tales, and were ideologically manipulated for political gain.

And now, let’s consider our country.  American patriotism is defined as a cultural attachment to the United States of America.  Despite many diverse ethnic backgrounds, American nationalism is the American way of life common among its citizens, with the US Constitution at the center of this national pride.   Our culture emphasizes basic human rights, that “all men are created equal,” that people have “unalienable rights,” and the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  Included is the privilege of education in a system of free public schools and libraries; and religion, morality and knowledge guarded by good government.

There is now a major attack, a war, against morality, focused on and raging against our children, systematized by the Red/Green (Communist/Islamic) Axis and globalists.  Notwithstanding our western ideals and the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child, our children’s rights are being replaced at every level.  Common Core was never implemented to raise students’ academic success, but to crush American exceptionalism, to reduce scholastic achievement so as to imbue the children with the social justice agenda.  Educator Donna Garner said on August 7, 2013, “If a person wanted to destroy our American culture, keep this generation from communicating effectively with older generations, and make sure today’s children grow up detesting America instead of valuing our nation’s American exceptionalism, the best plan would be to implement the Common Core Standards (CCS) into every school in America.”  And so public education was weaponized to change our nation.

Think: Child Science.

Other objectives include disrespecting the family unit, discouraging births and encouraging abortions (doomed to evolve into euthanasia for the elderly), promoting victimhood (encouraging anger and cruelty), endorsing the LGBTQ community and inciting inappropriate and toxic sex education (including emotionally and physically damaging sex-reassignment surgeries), portraying Israel and America as the enemy (to support terrorism), and lobbying for gun control (for an unarmed, defenseless population).  By allowing ourselves to be overwhelmed by migrants with ethics antithetical to our own, we welcome a perilous environment for our children, severely strained resources, reduced academic levels, and an exploitable labor force.  It should be glaringly obvious to all that the ultimate purposes of this is the destruction of traditional America and its rebirth as a collectivist State.

A recently introduced assault on our children, couched in new reading and speaking techniques, is “Flocabulary,” a digitized, Common Core-aligned tool to continue the Bill and Melinda Gates leftist plan, using clever animation, hip-hop/rap lyrics, misspelled words and incorrect grammar, designed for K-12 grades.   The company’s self-acclaimed “nontraditional approach” overrides the knowledge and skills that brought success and happiness to our forebears, and subtly appropriates our freedom of speech.  The children are being trained to ridicule the “old white men” who created our Constitutional Republic; to violently denounce and disrespect differing political opinions; to waive achievement for wealth redistribution; to ignore science for the globalist distraction of climate change; and to hate straight white males, Christians and Jews.  No longer judged on the merit system, students are graded on how well they adapt to the disunity and envy, based on race, heritage and political party.  For comprehensive clarification, read Donna Garner’s educationview.org.

Wars, by their very nature, are meant to reduce population, and although Communists and Islamists are waging recognizable wars against groups worldwide, using familiar weaponry, the situations herein are meant to produce the same results.  As the masses are promoting the devaluation of life with advocates of abortion, or discouraging marriage and procreation by promoting gender dysphoria, statistics show that our young are more despairing than before, more inclined to seek suicide as an escape from their emotional and physical pain. A callousness about life is now coming out of some US states, as well as from Iceland, the Netherlands, Belgium and other countries, and the fact that that we are being moved toward the cultures of death is becoming more evident.  The Black Book of Communism estimates 100 million deaths at the hands of the communist ideology, considered the greatest criminal system.  The Islamic ideology is estimated to have caused 900 million deaths (600 million Hindus alone) over 14 centuries.

These indicators clarify the overall intent.  A war is being conducted against Israel, America and Europe with the purpose of destroying our morality and way of life, of reducing our population before some “old white men” can seize the opportunity to save our republic, and before our enemy manages to establish a tyrannical regime over all the globe  — under which, from birth to death, we will be nothing more than a serfdom ruled by a One World Order.   The stakes couldn’t be higher: winner takes all.

Money Can’t Buy You Health

Preview:  So how would government-funded primary care have prevented the diseases my patients have had? Heart failure? (Statin drugs probably make it worse.) Heart attacks? (When the patient has one, it is too late to prevent it.) Stroke? (Preventive aspirin is now criticized because of the bleeding it may cause.) Osteoarthritis? (We have great joint replacements but are much better at blocking access to surgery than at curing the arthritis.) Gall bladder disease, cancer, pneumonia, blood clots, thyroid disease, cataracts, arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, herniated disks, asthma, endocarditis from drug abuse, on and on. If we put all the doctors to work pretending to keep people healthy, who would treat disease and injury?

Healing the sick is what medicine is about. The politicians who promise to “fix healthcare” can only destroy medicine—while bankrupting the country.


“Healthcare” is supposed to be the big election issue, and politicians promise to give people universal and equal “healthcare,” or prevent the bad guys from taking it away.

Everyone of course wants to be healthy, and a $3 trillion industry wants to keep the money flowing.

So, I have a confession to make as a doctor: I don’t think I have ever kept anybody healthy. If someone comes to me asking for “health maintenance,” I don’t have a shot of “health” to give, or a prescription for “health” to be filled at your neighborhood Walgreens, CVS, or Rite-Aid.

And as a patient, I can’t recall any ways in which doctors kept me healthy, although they did save my life by taking out my appendix, and they treated some illnesses and injuries. I am very grateful to them, and whatever I paid them seemed reasonable and well worth it.

To my mind, a healthy person is one who does not have to see a “healthcare provider” regularly or take medicine every day, and who can go to work, take care of family, and generally lead an active life.

We hear endless complaints about how we spend too much money treating sickness instead of preventing it. If only we had the government take all the money, plus trillions more, and “invest” it in health, we wouldn’t have to spend so much, and everyone would be healthier—so they say.

This was the rationale for the National Health Service in Britain. Once the NHS took care of the backlog of untreated illnesses, much of the need for it would melt away. This did not happen. Expenditures kept rising and were never enough. The backlogs and waiting lists grew. Ambulances circle emergency departments, and patients are crammed into hallways and storage rooms.

Suppose you go for your government-funded, “value-based” health maintenance visit. Details of your once-private life will be entered into a very expensive electronic health record. (For most people, it will be their own data, but occasionally someone else’s will be cut-and-pasted in, causing endless trouble.) You will be checked for diabetes or pre-diabetes, hypertension or pre-hypertension, tobacco use, cholesterol, in many cases gun ownership, body mass index, and other government-mandated items. You will get educated about the evils of tobacco (in case you have been on Mars and hadn’t heard). You’ll be lectured about obesity if your BMI is too high. You’ll very likely get a prescription to lower your blood pressure or cholesterol, and you may get vaccinated for something.

Your provider will likely get a bonus for checking all the right boxes and for “keeping you healthy,” and will get penalized if your “numbers” don’t improve or you get sick. Since I don’t think others are any better than I am at creating health, there is a huge incentive to “manage the case mix” to discourage unhealthy or noncompliant patients from joining the practice.

People on drugs for blood pressure or cholesterol may feel worse rather than better, but are supposed to be less likely to have a heart attack or stroke decades later. Studies with huge numbers of patients, who may be very different from you, have shown a decrease in such events with treatment. So far, a decrease in expenditures has not been shown, in view of the cost of all the drugs and side effects.

Of course, as an internist I treat high blood pressure and diabetes, but I consider this to be disease management. Would better diet prevent these things? Possibly, but what diet? I recommended low-fat diets for years. This government-approved advice is now questioned.

So how would government-funded primary care have prevented the diseases my patients have had? Heart failure? (Statin drugs probably make it worse.) Heart attacks? (When the patient has one, it is too late to prevent it.) Stroke? (Preventive aspirin is now criticized because of the bleeding it may cause.) Osteoarthritis? (We have great joint replacements but are much better at blocking access to surgery than at curing the arthritis.) Gall bladder disease, cancer, pneumonia, blood clots, thyroid disease, cataracts, arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, herniated disks, asthma, endocarditis from drug abuse, on and on. If we put all the doctors to work pretending to keep people healthy, who would treat disease and injury?

Healing the sick is what medicine is about. The politicians who promise to “fix healthcare” can only destroy medicine—while bankrupting the country.

President Trump has real support among Hispanic voters!

The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) is hosting a presidential candidate forum for Democrats on June 21, 2019 in Miami, Florida. The  NALEO Educational Fund and Latino Decisions conducted a poll and found that Latinos are following Election 2020 very closely.  More than eight in ten (84 percent) Latino voters reported being likely or certain to vote in November 2020.

The NALEO/Latino Decisions Spring 2019 National Poll found the following top issues:

  • Lowering the costs of health care – 37%
  • Improving wages and incomes – 24%
  • Protecting immigrant rights – 19%
  • Creating more jobs – 19%

Twenty-five percent of those polled view President Trump as somewhat (13%) or very (12%) favorable. Only 15% of those polled put as a priority ‘stopping Trump and the Republican agenda.”

The Washington Post in a column titled “Trump’s support among Hispanics and Latinos is real. Don’t assume it will fade” reported:

Recent YouGovQuinnipiac and Post-ABC News polls put his approval rating among Hispanics at 27 percent, 23 percent and 18 percent, respectively. Those numbers average out to about 23 percent — that’s a substantial chunk, and it’s not so different from his 2016 vote share. According to demographers Ruy Teixeira, Rob Griffin and John Halpin, Trump won 29 percent of the Latino vote against Hillary Clinton in 2016.

That roughly 25-30 percent of figure shows up elsewhere in the data.

President Trump has support in the Hispanic community with his pro-growth and pro-American workers agenda. The President’s recent efforts to lower healthcare costs can only help him.

As WaPo notes:

There’s one obvious reason that the Hispanic and Latino vote splits up and isn’t monolithic: Hispanic and Latino voters aren’t one identity homogeneous group. As with every other large racial and ethnic category (white, black, Asian), there’s a lot of internal diversity when you look under the hood.

[ … ]

It’s true that most Hispanic and Latino voters are Democrats, but some of the same political beliefs and identities that motivate non-Hispanics and non-Latinos to become Republicans, including religion, gender and partisanship also influence Latinos and Hispanics. Roughly 30 percent of them are a consistent Republican base.

The Democrats may be going down the wrong path when it comes to policies like de-funding ICE, raising taxes and pushing the $15 minimum wage, which all hurt job creation and wages. Giving free healthcare to illegal aliens rather than Hispanic citizens may be the deal breaker.

President Trump is kicking off his 2020 campaign in Orlando, Florida. Florida is key to his re-election. The Hispanic vote in the Sunshine state is important to both parties in 2020.

WARNING: The dangers of ‘negative identification’ and the tyranny of blaming others for what you are doing

I came across a very insightful clip of Jamie Glazov speaking about “negative identification.” Please watch:

I found this clip profound in that it explains the sadistic nature we are seeing played out today globally. Rape, incest, sodomy, hate, lies, torture and murder are headline news every day.

In my column Democratic Party Candidates for President Are Promoting the Seven Deadly Sins I noted:

As the Democratic field of candidates for president expands we are beginning to see what policies they are promoting. As we read their public statements of things that they promise they will do if elected it brought to mind that they fit into neat categories. These categories are the the Seven Deadly Sins.

The Seven Deadly Sins are: Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Laziness, Wrath, Envy and Pride. Each of these can lead to a state of self negative identification.

Another outcome of those who embrace one or more of the Seven Deadly Sins is “projection.’ Projection is, “a form of defense in which unwanted feelings are displaced onto another person, where they then appear as a threat from the external world. A common form of projection occurs when an individual, threatened by his own angry feelings, accuses another of harbouring hostile thoughts.”

What we are seeing is words thrown about at the highest level of our government and lowest parts of our street culture that blame others for what one actually does. Whites calling other whites “supremacist”, blacks calling other black “Uncle Tom” because they hold conservative political views and socialists calling others Nazis, when in fact the Nazis were socialists.

As I have written these Seven Deadly Sins have now become public policy, at least in one political party in the United States. Here’s the list:

  • Lust – to have an intense desire or need. Each of the candidates for president has a lust for power over the masses. This lust for power (big government) is demonstrated by the turn of Democrats toward “Democratic Socialism.” In a 1989 television interview Senator Bernie Sanders described himself as a “socialist.” As the author of ‘From a “Race of Masters” to a “Master Race”: 1948 to 1848‘ A.E. Samaan wrote “Democratic Socialism devolves into totalitarian Socialism and eventually into full on Communism as people resist statism.”
  • Gluttony – excess in eating and drinking. Democrats work hard to portray the Republican Party, and President Trump, who support the free market system as gluttony. Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said in 2015, “Let me say a word about that. You are looking at a candidate who does not represent the agenda of corporate America. Who does not represent the agenda of the billionaire class.” According to Celebrity Net Worth, as of 2017, Sanders is worth an estimated $2 million. According to Business Insider, “Sanders reportedly owns three homes, including a four-bedroom house in Chittenden County, Vermont, that he bought with his wife, Jane, for $405,000 in 2009.” Senator Sanders is considered one of the poorest of those running for president. For example, according to News Week Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, “O’Rourke had a net worth of about $9 million in 2015…O’Rourke also married into wealth. The woman he married in 2005, Amy Hoover Sanders, is the daughter of real estate tycoon William Sanders, whom The New York Times called a billionaire, but his net worth was closer to $500 million, Forbes estimated in November [2018].”
  • Greed – excessive or reprehensible passion in acquiring money or material things. See Gluttony.
  • Laziness – disinclined to activity or exertion: not energetic or vigorous. Democrats support two policies that promote laziness. The first is the $15 minimum wage ($15 Now). Raising the minimum wage without merit promotes laziness. Why work harder when a Democratic Party controlled government is going to raise every ones hourly salary anyway? The second is promising a job to everyone. Senator Cory Booker, D-N.J., released a plan that would create a pilot job guarantee programs in 15 communities where unemployment is particularly high. NPR reports, “Proposals like a job guarantee, Medicare for all and tuition-free college have moved from the policy fringe on the left toward the mainstream in the Democratic Party, embraced by some of those interested in challenging Trump as the party tries to give voters a clear, memorable outline of what Democrats stand for.” Getting something for nothing is the definition of laziness.
  • Wrath – strong vengeful anger or indignation. Anger, indignation and hate permeates the Democratic candidates. They cannot fathom that there are Americans who voted to make Donald J. Trump president and will do so again in 2020. Timothy P. Carney in a Washington Examiner column titled “Can Democrats love the voters Hillary hated?” wrote, “Democrats took over the House of Representatives in part by picking up dozens of seats in upper-middle-class suburban districts. The new bragging point for Democrats is that they are the party of the highly educated and the successful. It allows for the self-serving explanation that people who know the real deal vote Democratic, and only the clueless bitter clingers vote Republican.” The use of terms like racist, bigoted, hateful, misogynistic, Islamophobic and homophobic against those who support President Trump are key indicators of how wrathful Democrats and their supporters have become. What is also on the rise is the wrath of the Democratic Party against Jews. Anti-Semitism is now their official policy.
  • Envy – painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with a desire to possess the same advantage. Democrats hate success (see Gluttony, Greed and Wrath). Democratic candidates for president are by all definitions successful people. However, they envy those who are as or more successful than they are. They want to tax those with wealth at a rate of 70%. It is most interesting that Democrats are fully embraced by a litany of Hollywood millionaires, corporate billionaires (CEOs of Facebook, Google, Twitter) and multi-millionaire sports and media personalities.
  • Pride – quality or state of being proud – inordinate self esteem. Democrats embrace the term “pride” but pride in what exactly? Are they proud to be an American? Do they take pride in making America, and thereby Americans, great? Their stated policies would show that they hate America. Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder stated on MSNBC, “I hear these things about ‘let’s make America great again’ and I think to myself, exactly ‘when did you think America was great’?” Another example of pride is former President Barack Obama referring to himself a record-breaking 392 times in his April, 2019 Berlin speech. Democratic pride in deed and words.

When some say that the November 2020 Presidential Election is about the soul of this nation, they are spot on.

Will Abortion Politics Give Birth to Trump’s Second Term?

The good news for Joe Biden? There are still 17 months until the general election. That could be enough time to move past some of his catastrophic mistakes. The bad news for Joe Biden? There are still 17 months until the general election. And that’s an awful lot of time to make more.

Not many candidates survive a week as disastrous as the former vice president’s. And if you ask a lot of strategists, there’s no guarantee Joe Biden will either. As far as Democrats are concerned, his flip-flop-flip on the Hyde amendment — one of the most stunning policy reversals in 40 years — may have single-handedly reelected Donald Trump. “One of the largest obstacles to the defeat of President Trump in the 2020 election is the radicalism of the Democratic Party on the issue of abortion,” Michael Gerson writes in the Washington Post. “By forcing Joe Biden to abandon his support for the Hyde Amendment,” he goes on, liberals have given this administration its best chance at a second term.

“The problem here is not only that Biden appears weak and vacillating on an issue of conscience — which he does. Or that he will now be pressured to repudiate every hint of moderation in his 36-year legislative career — though he will be. The Hyde Amendment has played a particularly important role for Catholic politicians. It has allowed them to draw a distinction between permitting abortion and promoting it. Supporting the amendment has let them claim neutrality on abortion even while being effectively pro-choice. For Biden, this fig leaf is now removed. And seeing a 76-year-old man religiously and ethically naked is unappealing.”

For others, the shock wasn’t so much Biden’s betrayal — but what it reveals about the Democratic Party. “It’s troubling,” Richard Cohen mused, that the Left “is so intolerant of an opposing idea that it would doom a candidacy on that basis alone.” But then, this entire year has been a rude awakening for a lot of Americans who desperately wanted to believe that moderation still had a seat at the party’s table. Those illusions are gone, along with any whiff of Biden’s sincerity on abortion — or any other issue.

“He has put himself in an even worse position than Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign,” the Wall Street Journal argues. “I think he is actually toast,” “The Five’s” Greg Gutfield insisted. “I think that this is going to push him out the door.” Even in the press, the unofficial Biden fan club, the vice president went from legitimate contender to political cartoon. And why not? This is a politician who was talked out of four decades of conviction by the cast of “Who’s the Boss?” It doesn’t matter if you’re a Democrat or Republican: a man who gets intimidated by Alyssa Milano is not who most Americans want negotiating with Kim Jung Un.

Even the liberals who agree with Biden’s new position aren’t cutting him any slack. Deep down, even they recognize how important a compromise like Hyde is to his electability. That’s why, the Washington Post argues, “almost every Democrat in Congress has voted for legislation containing Hyde Amendment language, and according to research by [our] Mike DeBonis, that includes every Democrat running for president who is currently in Congress or previously served on Capitol Hill.” Hyde’s popularity is one reason the policy was never really an issue for either party until Hillary Clinton made it one three years ago. And we all saw how that turned out.

Even now, in battleground states like Pennsylvania, Americans don’t want anything do with the extremism of the new Democratic party. In fact, Axios explains, most people (89 percent) are well aware of the abortion debate playing out in state legislatures across America. “And they support the moves to enact strict new restrictions on abortion.” In Erie, “a few of our participants said [the restrictions] may actually make them slightly more likely, on average, to support Trump.”

The time is coming — and soon — when someone will ask Joe Biden about his stance on infanticide. Let’s hope he has a better answer.
