Abortion is Not a Fundamental Right, It’s a Fundamental Wrong

June 24, 2022

Today the United States Supreme Court handed down a decision regarding Roe vs. Wade, essentially overturning the flawed “law of the land,” which originally was passed on January 22, 1973, and did what was constitutionally correct by leaving it up to individual states to decide whether or not to allow women to murder living babies inside their wombs.

Unhinged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went on a post-decision tirade saying that the “radical Supreme Court” is “eviscerating Americans’ rights and endangering their health and safety.” No, Nancy, an abortion endangers the health and safety of an unborn baby as well as the mother of that baby. She went on to refer to abortion as “health freedom” and “family planning.” Abortion is anything but family planning.

Struggling to put a coherent sentence together, Pelosi stated that “the hypocrisy is raging but the harm is endless. What this means to women is such an insult. It’s a slap in the face to women about using their own judgment, to make their own decisions about their reproductive freedom.”

We are all free to do whatever we want, it just doesn’t make it right. This is lost on her, though. Just because she wants something to be true doesn’t make it so. But that’s the unnatural thought pattern of the left.

Regime Spokesperson Joe Biden chimed in saying that the Supreme Court took away a constitutional right. Reading, from a giant teleprompter, words obviously written by someone else, he referred to abortion as a “fundamental right.” It is not, nor has it ever been, a fundamental right, but rather it is a fundamental wrong. Our rights don’t come from the Supreme Court, much less the government. They come from God. Pelosi and Biden should understand this since they both claim to be practicing Catholics. But their position on this very subject is why they have both been rejected from taking Communion, a Catholic ritual and a Christian sacrament.

Biden made the point that women are now going to be penalized by not being allowed to have abortions. Women, he says, who have been raped or have been impregnated by incest will now have to bear the babies of their rapists. Although pregnancies by rape and incest are very extreme, they also are very rare. This is not a common thing. Most women who have abortions have them because they view their pregnancy as an inconvenience. They don’t want their current lifestyle disrupted by a pregnancy, then by having to raise a child.

It’s pretty sad, however, that the United States, for some moronic reason, gives the organization Planned Parenthood a half billion of our tax dollars. While it claims to provide health services for women, you know services like mammograms, birth control, physicals and check-ups, what it primarily provides are abortions. Women’s health services are commonly provided by primary care physicians and general medical practitioners and included in most HMO or PPO plans, so why is there a need for Planned Parenthood if what it mostly does is provide women’s health services? Let’s face it, abortion is not a woman’s health service and Planned Parenthood is not primarily focused on a woman’s health.

The claim the left makes that abortion is a constitutional right is laughable and a flat out lie. Nowhere in the Constitution of the United States does it give a woman a right to terminate a pregnancy. Moreover, the Constitution endorses life. The bottom line is that this decision does not take away a right enshrined by the US Supreme Court 50 years ago. It was never a right in the first place.

Do Republicans Really Have a Messaging Problem?

January 20, 2021

Today was the day Joe Biden was sworn into office as a faux president of the United States. Of course all sane and rational thinking people who have been paying attention the last two months know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this election was stolen and a coup d’etat was executed on Americans. The deep state got even deeper as the Supreme Court of the United States jumped in and assisted the swamp.

There are many fronts that affected the perceived 2020 election result including Democrats unconstitutionally changing the election laws in certain states to favor their party; the use of voting machines programmed to manipulate the vote count; Democrat personnel working the voting centers manipulating the vote tallies; US courts unwilling to consider evidence of obvious fraud; and powerful biased companies that set the tables to suppress information voters should have been able to access.

An election can be manipulated by companies and conglomerates that are in the business of information collection by altering the algorithms that drive, or seek to drive, web traffic. By having some amount of, or even total, control over what millions of undecided voters view online is a massive advantage to the party they’re biased toward, in this case the Democrat party.

For example, Google has been exposed for having a bias and manipulating data in the 2016 election. Google is a large company with multiple divisions, from search engine and information dissemination to Google Earth to Google Docs, it goes on and on. Google definitely enhances people’s online experiences. But what many people also use it for is to manage their social media pages for their businesses and organizations.

Social media is obviously huge for companies and Google is so widely used it’s hard to avoid using their services. Almost everyone uses Google in one form or another. But when a conservative person wants to take advantage of Google business, as anyone would because it’s a useful tool for small businesses, what impact does this have on conservatives, since Google is so biased?

The fact that search results favor the left and disadvantage the right makes it ethically and morally unfair.

This is exactly what we saw in the 2020 election with Twitter and Facebook. Both companies deliberately suppressed stories that favored President Trump and hurt Joe Biden. When the New York Post tweeted a story exposing Hunter Biden’s crimes and misdeeds, the social media giant Twitter was quick to take it down and censor free speech. Facebook and Twitter attach labels to posts they disagree with which state something to the effect of “our fact checkers found this post (or article) to be in dispute or contain disinformation.”

After the election a study by the Media Research Center found that around 17% of those who had not heard about the Hunter Biden story said they would not have voted for Joe Biden had they known.

This presents another problem. Aside from Twitter and Facebook censoring major stories, why are so many people disengaged from politics and reality? There could be multiple reasons.

One might be that many people are just lazy and can’t be bothered by it. Many simply just don’t think for themselves but rather allow others and the media to decide for them. Or it could be that Republicans have a messaging problem.

However, it could also be that Republicans are unable to get their message out because social media has hijacked the messaging vehicles by suppressing stories. Then again, many people are legitimately frightened of the repercussions they’ll experience if they show any support for anyone on the right.

Does the right really have a messaging problem or is the left so organized and invested in keeping people from hearing and reading the truth, truth which could swing the vote a certain way? I believe it’s a little of the former and a lot of the latter.

How to Steal an Election

We live in an age of technology, which can be a good thing but can also be a very bad thing. When it comes to elections it’s a very bad thing, especially in the hands of very bad, biased people. We are witnessing this scenario right now. The 2020 election is being stolen from the American people with the help of some very bad actors.

Big Tech, which includes social media, is a huge player in driving election information. Platforms like Facebook and Twitter can easily suppress pertinent stories, making sure users aren’t given necessary information that could help in deciding whom they vote for. Twitter was caught suppressing negative stories about Hunter Biden, and Facebook also takes an authoritarian position on whether a story is posted on their site. Unfortunately, many people rely solely on these social media sites for their news.

While Twitter and Facebook along with many other social media sites are blatantly leftist, and when they undoubtedly limit information on their sites that affect elections as we saw this time around, why are they given no more than a slap on the wrist when they are caught? They need to be harshly penalized to the amount of half of their net worth. Additionally, the key people who made the decisions to suppress information should serve prison time, minimum five year sentences. Then, and only then, will this suppression cease.

Big Media is also a huge problem on this front. So called news outlets like CNN, the New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, NBC, CBS and others are willfully complicit in disseminating disinformation. A study conducted by analysts at the Media Research Center showed that over 90 percent of the coverage of President Trump during his first term was negative and 92 percent negative during the three months leading up to the election.

Fortunately there are enough people who have rejected Big Media since they have seen the blatant bias in the reporting and have developed a deep distrust for them. These are the people who voted for Trump in the 2020 election but are now being disenfranchised by the coup that is presently playing out. If the attempt to steal the election by Big Tech and Big Media isn’t bad enough, now there is Big Justice willing to help out. Legitimate challenges by the President’s legal team have been tossed out left and right by federal courts and even the United States Supreme Court with no reasonable explanation for their case dismissals.

In addition to the bad actors perpetrating election fraud, others include partisan election workers, local and state government officials, and polling companies that deliberately skew the results of their own polls.

When you can get enough corrupt people in both parties in on the scam, when you can get Big Media to ignore the evidence, even when it’s presented right in front of their faces, and when you can get the highest court in the land to dismiss key cases that would turn the election upside down, well then you can steal an election.

Democrats Are Evidence Deniers

Democrats have a rich history of refusing to believe facts in difficult cases. They refuse to accept that Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election and now that the Robert Mueller report on supposed collusion between President Trump and Russia has been released they refuse to believe the evidence, or lack thereof, in it as well. It’s bad enough they believe there was collusion in the first place, it’s even worse, though, that they totally ignore the real collusion that occurred between Hillary Clinton and Russia. This makes them evidence deniers.

Typical of Democrats, as soon as the Mueller report was completed and a summary issued by Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein vindicating President Trump, they immediately jumped to their own conclusions instead of accepting the ones actually based on fact. They want so bad to find something to impeach him on so they are demanding to see the entire report, although they have no legal right, as it contains classified data they’re not privy to.

It’s plain to see their objective here. Knowing Clinton and many Democrats have committed crimes which should put them behind bars, they’re desperate to conceal this from the nation and are trying to continue the running narrative of Trump collusion. Ultimately, they want to oust him from office. It isn’t working but they keep trying.

Time and time again Democrats have denied evidence. The case of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, where 18-year-old Brown assaulted a convenience store owner then assaulted Officer Darren Wilson minutes later, is a perfect example. There was crime scene evidence that Brown did not have his hands up when he was shot, as certain people claimed. But many Democrats in the media decided it was best to run this narrative. The claim which led to the coined phrase “hands up, don’t shoot” was proven to be a lie.

Even when there is a lack of evidence, as in the claims of “global warming” and “climate change science” having something to do with the planet’s deterioration, most Democrats refuse to accept the fact that it is made up, a hoax, and a scam, all in an effort to attain money and power. There is not a shred of evidence that so-called global warming has harmed the earth, the atmosphere, the ocean, polar icecaps and those poor polar bears. It’s all nonsense, but when the Democratic Party has control of the media, academia, Hollywood and other institutions, the narrative gets out there and unsuspecting minds believe it.

No one denies climate change. The climate changes, that’s a fact, it’s just not harmful and destructive to the earth. What’s harmful and destructive to our nation, however, is failing to believe real evidence and going along with a false narrative.

Now that the record has been set straight in the Mueller report, that President Trump did not collude with Russia, it’s time to expose the truth in the Clinton/Russia collusion case. I’m waiting for the evidence, though I’m sure Democrats will still deny it.

Kavanaugh Confirmed, Take That Democrats.

It was an unfair and grueling process of confirmation hearings and unnecessary questioning that Judge Brett Kavanaugh had to endure. Unfounded accusation after malicious insinuation about his life as a teenager and college student were made. The Democrats, many of them anyway, without anything substantial upon which to base their claims, tried to make Kavanaugh out to be a misogynistic party boy who had his way with women.

Although he vehemently denied the accusations, leftists couldn’t have cared less as they predictably played the sexist card over and over again like they usually do to those they don’t like. You see, when Democrats don’t have proof of anything, they’ll do anything.

When it was clear they had nothing to pin on Kavanaugh, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) announced she had a report which contained information about a sexual assault Kavanaugh committed over three decades ago. The report was given to Feinstein six weeks earlier but she chose to keep it confidential, long enough until it was evident that she needed to use it to try to prevent Kavanaugh from being confirmed.

The mainstream media, of course, did what they usually do, took the unverified story and ran with it, giving undeserved credibility to the accuser.

It was a coordinated attempt to thwart Kavanaugh from taking a seat on the United States Supreme Court. Because he was President Trump’s nominee, and because the left hates Trump, Kavanaugh became their prime target. With the help of a complicit mainstream media, many in the public developed a misguided anger toward a very qualified, decent man. They didn’t know a thing about him but because he’s conservative about to be confirmed they threw temper-tantrums.

This presented a dangerous situation because, unfortunately, the left is easily manipulated into violence. Thankfully, Judge Kavanaugh never gave up, got over that hurdle and was eventually confirmed as the next United States Supreme Court Justice.

Democratic senators, representatives, much of Hollywood and the mainstream media are guilty of besmirching Justice Kavanaugh and should take at least some responsibility for the threats of violence he and his family received. It is imperative that all those culpable are held to account.

Additionally, those Senate Democrats who held up the beginning of the confirmation hearings need to be severely reprimanded and lose their committee seats. Those include Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Cory Booker (D-NJ), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Dianne Feinstein and others. In the future there should be even harsher penalties for this kind of disruptive behavior. For indeed, elected officials should be held to a higher standard.

Disrupting Kavanaugh

Two weeks ago the Senate Judiciary committee held confirmation hearings to vet Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Although his record is remarkable and his history as a judge is exemplary, Senate Democrats couldn’t keep from making a scene and fools of themselves at the onset of the hearing. Not one minute went by before Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) interrupted the opening remarks by insisting that the hearing should be delayed. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) added to the hysterics and declared himself as having an “I am Spartacus” moment. What is really confounding is why Harris and Booker are even on the Senate Judiciary committee.

Several other Democratic senators joined the classless display of antics and convinced nobody but themselves that this hearing needed to be delayed. It was an obvious ploy but it didn’t work. Senate Republicans showed an enormous amount of restraint by not properly chiding their colleagues on the other side of the aisle.

After several failed attempts to derail the confirmation hearings Democrats shamelessly played their wild card. Last week Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) presented a report on an alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh against Christine Blasey Ford at a high school pool party thirty-some years ago. This is in typical Democratic fashion, a September surprise, if you will. It might have been taken seriously had Democrats not already thrown any shred of credibility they had down the toilet.

The fact that this claim is of an incident that supposedly happened when Kavanaugh and Blasey Ford were both teenagers is not to be immediately dismissed. However, with Democrats fearful of an overturning of Roe vs. Wade, they’ll do anything to keep Judge Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court. The only thing missing in this scenario is attorney Gloria Allred.

The real reason Democrats are disrupting the process of confirming Judge Kavanaugh is to try to carry out the process until after the November elections, at which time they hope a blue wave will sweep over the country and usher in enough new votes to keep him from becoming the next Supreme Court Justice. Their efforts, of course, are unlikely to come to fruition since Republicans will probably push the process along and vote him in anyway.

At the beginning of the hearings, several protestors were rightly arrested and removed. As for the Democrats who disrupted the hearings, they should have also been removed when they refused to come to order. Additionally, they should be reprimanded and lose their seats on the committee. This should set a new precedent for all future hearings, whatever they may be for.

Five Things a New Attorney General Should Investigate

After eight years of Obama amassing an inexcusable amount of blunders and presiding over a scandal-ridden administration, most Americans were fed up and happily ushered in a new President of the United States in Donald Trump. As a non-politician Trump hired some qualified and some non-qualified individuals as cabinet secretaries, some who were politicians and some who were not. Some worked out, some didn’t. Some are long gone, but a few are still around. One who is still around is Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who at the beginning of President Trump’s term seemed promising as one who would clean up the mess the previous DOJ made and prosecute those who needed to be brought up on charges. Oddly, this did not happen the way Americans wanted. Instead Sessions recused himself from being involved in an investigation about a suspicion some DOJ officials had about Russian involvement in the 2016 election.

Now after several intimidating and ridiculing tweets from President Trump about AG Sessions’ inability and/or neglect to do his job, it appears that he may be on his way out. If so, here are five things a new AG should immediately investigate.

Operation Fast and Furious

You might think that a covert operation as serious as Fast and Furious, where firearms were trafficked to drug cartels in a misguided scheme to then track them so they can disrupt drug traffickers operating in the U.S., would spark a huge outrage when it turned into a fiasco and went unpunished. The previous administration was knee-deep in the corruption, then Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama clearly possessing knowledge of the operation.

Prevailing wisdom should suggest that the next legitimate administration would properly investigate and get to the bottom of this since it failed to get too far past Obama. Now that there’s a new Attorney General, it’s disheartening that justice still has not prevailed.

If not for the American people, who have a right to know what the Obama/Holder DOJ was up to, if not for the integrity of our nation’s security and trust in the American people, at least do it for the family of Border Patrol Agent Bryan Terry, who was shot and killed by a cartel member using one of the firearms involved in the Fast and Furious firearms sale.

Embassy Attack in Benghazi

On September 11, 2012 our embassy in Benghazi, Libya was attacked and led to the brutal murders of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other State Department officials by Libyan rebels. It all happened on Obama’s and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s watch, although they do not wish to hold themselves responsible for it.

Prior to the attack, Ambassador Stevens had warned Clinton of the impending danger and requested support. Sec. Clinton refused to send the adequate support that was desperately needed. To make matters worse, special agents in the area were told to stand down and not take action. To make matters even worse, the Obama administration went into damage control mode, manufacturing a story that the attack was a spontaneous outbreak arising from the anger they had about an anti-Muslim YouTube video some young kid in America made. This was obviously false but the State Department still went with it and the mainstream media ran with it. On the Sunday morning news programs following the attack, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice fed the lie to the American public.

It’s time for Clinton and others to be held responsible.

IRS Targeting of Americans for their Political Beliefs

When Obama entered office in 2009 many were not happy about it but were willing to give him a chance to prove he was up to the task of running the most powerful country in the world. It wasn’t long before people regretted their decisions. It became clear that Obama was going to push for universal health care, raise taxes and distribute the earnings of hard-working Americans to non-working Americans. As a result, more people became welfare recipients, more people depended on food stamps and America’s debt grew by several trillions of dollars.

As soon as American citizens noticed the doom our country was headed for, conservatives and others formed groups and organizations, largely attached to the movement known as the TEA party, to protest and try to stop Obama’s liberal agenda. Under the adopted acronym Taxed Enough Already, the TEA Party was an outpouring of justifiable anger and frustration at what Obama and his administration were beginning to do.

The Obama administration realized their agenda was wildly unpopular with most of the American public, but they were undeterred. They ignored the will of the people and as punishment for their discontent, Obama apparently ordered the Internal Revenue Service to go after various Tea Party, freedom-loving and Pro-America groups, making it difficult for them to achieve tax-exempt status as non-profit organizations and thereby hindering the groups from launching successful campaigns against leftist candidates running for office.

This was clearly an abuse of power by a non-elected bureaucracy and nothing short of tyranny. Former IRS Director Lois Lerner went before the House of Representatives in a hearing but refused to answer questions, asserting her Fifth Amendment right. She and others have not been held accountable for their outrageous actions and need to be.

Uranium One

It’s hard to classify or rate in order of importance the many scandals of the Obama administration. Indeed, each is uniquely egregious. But one that is especially bothersome is Uranium One and involves the illegitimate deal made by the Obama administration with the involvement of then Secretary Hillary Clinton and husband former President Bill Clinton.

In short, the deal included a Russia state-controlled nuclear energy firm acquiring 20 percent of the United States’ uranium in exchange for several millions of dollars funneled to the Clinton’s. A side deal included a speech in Moscow given by Bill Clinton for the measly price of $500,000.

But the fact that so much of America’s uranium was bartered off to a hostile regime is at the height of scandalous. It compromises America’s national security interests. The non-chalantness of the Obama administration should concern us all. With so much evidence, how is it that this case has not been prosecuted?

The adage is not overused in that if a Republican had been involved in such a covert action, high ranking and low ranking Democrats would be calling for their heads. The hyperbole would be spewed and it would be rightly warranted. But this happened on Obama’s watch and has gone nearly unnoticed by any Democrat, especially the mainstream media. If the MSM was the conscience of the people it claims to be, why won’t they report on this? A few of us know why.

Hillary Clinton Email Scandal

Violating the Espionage Act of 1913 is a serious offense. Hillary Clinton likely did just that by allowing national defense information to be “lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed through gross negligence.” But Hillary Clinton, for all her crimes, seems to have been given a pass at every turn. It is high time the American public sees her in cuffs and shackles doing a perp walk to her cell in a federal penitentiary if she is found guilty. She is not above the law. Indeed, many people have been convicted and are serving hard time for far less.

Upon becoming Secretary of State, a position she was not qualified for, Clinton and aide Huma Abedin had a private server set up in a secret room in a Clinton office in Manhattan in order to keep certain facts hidden and untraceable. She must not have realized that in today’s high-tech environment there are people who can hack into a personal server like no one’s business.

There are several more things a new Attorney General should investigate but these five are an important first start. It’s unfortunate that Jeff Sessions, a decent human being, can’t or won’t perform his duties, especially when so many people had high hopes for him to do so. So many people need to be called to answer for their involvement in Obama administration scandals from Hillary Clinton to Susan Rice to Eric Holder to Lois Lerner to James Comey to Jim Clapper to John Brennan and even Barack Obama. With a new Attorney General, perhaps some justice will finally be served.
