President-elect chooses pro-life chief of staff

by Dave Andrusko, editor of National Right to Life News

As you would expect, when President-elect Donald Trump announced that he had chosen Reince Priebus to fill the all-important role of chief of staff, I asked the pro-lifers who would know Priebus best: Wisconsin Right to Life. Here’s what Heather Weininger, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life, told NRL News:

“Reince Priebus is a true friend to all of us in the pro-life movement. Even from his earliest days in Wisconsin politics, Reince has always been, and always will be, on the side of those who are the most vulnerable.

“While his behind-the-scenes pro-life efforts too often go unnoticed, his influence in Republican politics has markedly increased the strength of his party’s pro-life position. Reince, as chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, stayed firm and true to his state party’s pro-life platform. Then, as the head of the Republican National Committee, Reince worked hard to ensure his party’s national platform became the most pro-life it has ever been in the history of the Republican party.

“Reince has never shied away from his firm belief in the right to life. We are thrilled that we will have a Wisconsinite working in the White House to fight for the most basic and fundamental human right, life.”

For me, three items about the Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman stand out, beginning with the joint statement Priebus and RNC Co-Chair Sharon Day released June 27, the day Supreme Court issued its awful Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt ruling:

The next president will likely appoint multiple justices to the Supreme Court, that could determine its course for decades to come. We must always fight to protect life and today’s disappointing decision is another reminder of what’s at stake in this election and why we can’t afford to let Hillary Clinton win.

The second was around the time of the 2014 March for Life which is held annually in Washington, DC. Priebus delayed the start of the party’s annual meeting so he and other members could attend the March which begins on the Mall.

“I saw that there was a real interest among a significant portion of our members to attend and support the Rally for Life,” Mr. Priebus said in an email statement.“This is a core principle of our party. It was natural for me to support our members and our principles.” Priebus also “decided that the RNC will charter a bus to and from the march for those among the RNC’s 168 members who wish to attend,” according to the Washington Times’ Ralph Hallow.

The third was back in April 2012 when Priebus appeared on MSNBC. Correspondent/anchor Thomas Roberts made no bones about where he was coming from—there was a “war on women” because there were “90 different anti-abortion laws coming across the state legislatures, spiking in the country after the Republicans take back state legislatures and governorships [in 2010]. How do you say it’s a fiction?”

Here’s what Priebus said in response:

“You and I are never going to be on the same page as long as you believe that if you’re pro-life, you’re anti-women. And you and I are never going to be on same page because I happen to believe that life begins at conception and you don’t. So, since you don’t believe that…”

Roberts then interrupted him but Priebus finished his point.

“I don’t buy that because I don’t buy your argument. I happen to believe that you can be pro-women and pro-life. You don’t. That’s the problem, Thomas.”

Terrific choice, Mr. President-Elect.

“No evidence to support a challenge”

clinton-danger-to-democracy

“[Clinton campaign lawyer Marc E.] Elias admits the campaign could find no evidence to support a challenge to Trump’s victory, but that is not stopping them from joining Stein in trying to overthrow Trump’s presidency before it begins.”

I Finally Found It

A couple week ago I heard an audio clip on the overnight talk show, Redeye Radio. It was that deranged moron Keith Olberpuke ranting about Trump rounding up all the illegals and putting them in concentration camps. There’s a video at the link, but it’s not on youtube. Here’s the gist of it:

Olbermann: America Is Pretending That Trump Isn’t Going To Build Concentration Camps
SOMETHING TELLS ME WE’RE GOING TO HEAR ‘ELECTED BY A MINORITY’ JUST AS MUCH AS WE HEARD ‘SELECTED, NOT ELECTED’ AFTER THE DEMOCRATS FAILED TO STEAL FLORIDA IN 2000.
He continues: “That man who was elected by a minority says he will immediately incarcerate or deport 2-3 million undocumented Americans — which is roughly the same number of people who live in Houston, TX — which is roughly the same number of people who are already in all of the federal, state, and county jails and all the city jails, and al the ICE detention facilities, and all the Navy brigs, and all the Army stockades combined. Which leaves no inference possible, except that he somehow means to take 2-3 million people off our streets and keep them somewhere until they can be jailed or deported. And we have to pretend that this somewhere… will not involved concentration camps. But don’t worry, he’s unifying the nation!”

Keith Olbermann vows to fight fascism under ‘President-elect P*ssy-grabber’
SOMEBODY CALL THE ASYLUM…OLBERMANN’S ESCAPED AGAIN
Sixty-eight days until his inauguration, still bitching about his paranoid fantasies about the media, still lying about what he said during the campaign, still referring to himself in the third person, still obsessing over one newspaper, as if he were 15 and it refused to go with him to the junior prom,” Olbermann said. “Give him a chance? What, in the hope that he will someday grow up enough to be able to see over the top of the Oval Office desk?”
PROJECT MUCH, THERE, BUTT-BOY??

AND IN OTHER NEWS;
Mooch And Two Nephews Kick Off Obamas’ Final White House Christmas, Malia And Sasha No Show
IN CASE YOU’RE WONDERING (CAN’T IMAGINE WHY) BARRY SKIPPED THE GIG TO… WAIT FOR IT… GO GOLFING!!
“One’s asleep,” she said, gesturing toward the White House. “These two are up,” she added, referring to the sons of her brother, Craig Robinson, who was visiting with his family for Thanksgiving.
Malia and Sasha also skipped their father’s traditional pardon of a Thanksgiving turkey this week; Austin and Aaron subbed for them, too.

Brian Williams: Cubans Would Rather Have Donkey Carts for Transportation
In reaction to Cuban dictator Fidel Castro’s death, MSNBC’s Brian Williams said the Cuban people would rather use donkey carts as transportation than the American cars from the 1950s that are still in use.
“It’s still one of those nations where you see donkey carts alongside cars, trucks and buses in downtown Havana because that’s exactly what they’d rather have for transportation,” Williams stated Saturday.

Obamacare insurers stiffed again by feds
WELCOME TO OBAMACARE, SUCKERS!!
Insurers are asking for about $5.8 billion from the federal government for 2015 in Obamacare’s risk corridor program, according to an estimate from Brian Blase of the right-leaning think tank Mercatus Center. However, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said last week that all payments would go toward paying off the money owed the insurers for 2014.
For the 2014 coverage year, insurers requested about $2.8 billion in payments but only received 12 percent of that, or about $362 million. Now insurers are requesting even more for 2015.

Obama faces sharp criticism after offering condolences to Fidel Castro’s family
OBAMA WILL SEND A REPRESENTATIVE TO THE FUNERAL. IT WOULDN’T SURPRISE ME IF HE WENT HIMSELF
“During my presidency, we have worked hard to put the past behind us,” Obama wrote, “pursuing a future in which the relationship between our two countries is defined not by our differences but by the many things that we share as neighbors and friends.”

Retired Female Marine Breaks Down Why Trump Won The White House
A senior fellow at the London School for Policy Research and a frequent guest on Fox News, CNN and MSNBC discussing national security, veterans, military and economic issues, this Marine finds it “appalling” when “racist” epithets are cavalierly thrown at Trump supporters.
“The average white working class person is not thinking about hating other people. They are thinking about paying their bills, getting the food on the table, getting their kids a decent education and worrying about the next paycheck,” she says.

Infant dies during protest of Baltimore police-involved shooting
WHY THE HELL IS SOMEBODY BRINGING A MONTH-OLD BABY TO A PROTEST? THIS IS BALTIMORE. THERE IS A 100% CHANCE THE MOTHER IS A WELFARE QUEEN. THE CHANCES ARE ALSO HIGH SHE HAS MULTIPLE KIDS, PROBABLY ALL TODDLERS, WHOM SHE LEFT HOME ALONE. THE MEDIA WON’T EVER TELL YOU, BUT THAT’S THE WAY I’M BETTING.
NEXT COMES THE OUTPOURING OF SYMPATHY AND THE DONATIONS FOR THIS POOR DISTRAUGHT MOTHER. MEH.
A 1-month-old girl died Saturday when she stopped breathing during a protest of the second Baltimore police-involved shooting reported in the city in three days, police said.
Witnesses told police that the girl’s mother, who was not identified, was one of about 30 people who gathered on Greenmount Avenue to protest Saturday afternoon in response to a police shooting one day earlier.
She went into the restaurant to feed the infant, witnesses said, and the baby stopped breathing shortly after that.

THE CHICAGO-TENNESSEE GAME IS WITHIN THE HOUR. THE BEARS WILL LIKELY GO DOWN TO INGLORIOUS DEFEAT ONCE AGAIN.

They Never Quit

It never changes. Arrogant, overbearing, and dictatorial when they win, graceless, lawless, bitter, and desperate when they lose. When the election of 1960 was over the margin of victory was razor-thin. It hinged on a massive fraudulent vote from Crook County in Illinois. Rather than throw a tantrum and demand a recount, as was his right, Richard Nixon decided to concede with dignity so as not to put the country through such trauma. Fast forward to 2000. Shoe on the other foot, it took the Supreme Court to stop the blatant attempt to steal the presidency after Bush won three — count ’em, three — recounts in Florida.

The leftists were caught completely off guard by Trump’s win they had to quickly devise a plan to steal what they’d lost fair and square. First, have George Soros fund protests all over the country for more than a week. The media ramps up the hysteria by attacking the new administration on every front. Have operatives try to threaten, bribe, or cajole electors into ignoring their mandate to help them steal a win. Then promise a nondescript fringe candidate tens of millions of dollars to be the decoy in an attempt to force recounts in three states that could turn the election. Only a fool believes that Jill Stein has her own interests at heart in this fiasco. She raised $3.1 million during her entire campaign. To fund the recount she came up with more than $5 million in 2 days. They will not go quietly. Hell,they won’t go at all.

Revealed: Hillary Clinton Schemed Since Day After Election to Steal Presidency From Donald Trump
In public Clinton acted out the part of the gracious, retiring loser– being seen in photos running into supporters as she roamed around her hometown of Chappaqua, New York. But the ‘accepting Hillary’ image was a front that hid the true Hillary who was furiously seeking a way to claw back Trump’s election for herself.
Elias admits the campaign could find no evidence to support a challenge to Trump’s victory, but that is not stopping them from joining Stein in trying to overthrow Trump’s presidency before it begins.
“Because we had not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology, we had not planned to exercise this option ourselves, but now that a recount has been initiated in Wisconsin, we intend to participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides.”

‘What a Pack of Losers’: Kellyanne Conway Blasts Clinton Campaign For Joining Recount
“What a pack of sore losers,” Conway said in a statement to Bloomberg. “After asking Mr. Trump and his team a million times on the trail, ‘Will HE accept the election results?’ it turns out Team Hillary and their new BFF Jill Stein can’t accept reality.
“Rather than adhere to the tradition of graciously conceding and wishing the winner well, they’ve opted to waste millions of dollars and dismiss the democratic process. The people have spoken. Time to listen up. #YesYourPresident,” Conway said.

Trump Releases Statement: The “Ridiculous” Green Party Recount Effort Is a Scam
This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than one percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount. All three states were won by large numbers of voters, especially Pennsylvania, which was won by more than 70,000 votes.

The Democrats’ real strategy in launching recounts
The recounts, if done by hand, which can be demanded, may take longer than the last day for completing the official counts in a state and directing Electoral College voters. If all 3 states miss the deadline, Trump is at 260, Hillary at 232. No one hits 270.

Michigan preparing for potential hand recount of 4.8M presidential votes

“This initiative is not about helping one candidate and hurting another,” she said. “We said over and over, we don’t support either of them. In this recount effort, we’re not attempting to overthrow Donald Trump, and I don’t expect that will be the outcome.”
Instead, she said she picked the three states where the vote was the closest to ensure the integrity of the election.
AND TO PICK UP $100M FROM YOUR NEW BFF, GEORGIE BOY

Clinton campaign will participate in Wisconsin recount, with an eye on ‘outside interference,’ lawyer says
In a Medium post, Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias said that the campaign had received “hundreds of messages, emails, and calls urging us to do something, anything, to investigate claims that the election results were hacked and altered in a way to disadvantage Secretary Clinton,” especially in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, where the “combined margin of victory for Donald Trump was merely 107,000 votes.”
“I don’t think there’s any realistic chance whatsoever that even if recounts are done in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, that’s going to change the outcome in the states, or in the presidential election generally,” Hasen said.
In a statement Saturday, Trump said the recount was “just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than one percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money.”

The truth about Cuban healthcare

Healthcare in Cuba has two tiers.

The first is First World quality, but restricted to foreigners and Party elite.  Medical tourists pay in hard currency, which provides oxygen to the regime. Cuba does big business in Botox, liposuction, and breast implants. In addition to separate medical facilities, rich foreigners enjoy separate hotels, separate beaches, and separate restaurants.

Cuban citizens get the dregs. So deplorable is the health care in Cuba that old-fashioned diseases are back with a vengeance. These include tuberculosis, leprosy, and dengue and typhoid fevers. Hospitals and clinics are crumbling. Basic medications are scarce and the equipment that doctors have to work with is either antiquated or nonexistent. Patients must bring their own bed sheets, soap, towels, food, light bulbs — even toilet paper.

Fidel fans need to explain this

If Cuba is such a paradise, why do so many of its citizens risk their lives trying to get here?

cuban-boat-people

As for that alleged “100% literacy rate”, let us please remember this is self-reported by the same repressive regime that doesn’t admit outsiders or a free press.  Maybe it’s true.  Or maybe it’s just PR.

Human Rights Watch: Fidel Castro

2016_11-human-rights-watch-rpt-cuba

During Castro’s rule, thousands of Cubans were incarcerated in abysmal prisons, thousands more were harassed and intimidated, and entire generations were denied basic political freedoms.

Abusive tactics developed during Castro’s time in power – including surveillance, beatings, arbitrary detention, and public acts of repudiation – are still used by the Cuban government.

Under Fidel Castro, the Cuban government refused to recognize the legitimacy of Cuban human rights organizations, alternative political parties, independent labor unions, or a free press.

He also denied international monitors such as the International Committee of the Red Cross and international nongovernmental organizations like Human Rights Watch access to the island to investigate human rights conditions.

“That’s horrifying.”

Before she lost, Hillary made really strong statements against the very idea of questioning the results of an election.  NOW, she’s joining Jill Stein’s effort to demand a recount.  Judge Jeanine has her usual pithy commentary on this hypocrisy.

King James Bible movie – 5 stars!

I expected this to be a 3 star maximum and only got it to fill in my history knowledge about Scripture.  Boy was I surprised!  It’s a fantastic movie!  It also includes a really clear explanation of the Guy Fawkes affair.
