Bad News for the Abortion Industry

Pro-aborts always say that banning abortions would be devastating to women’s health.  But Chile has proven that to be a Big Fat Lie.

Chile banned abortion in 1989.  Since then, the number of women seeking abortion has DECLINED, as has the maternal death rate. 

Chile and two other nations — Malta and The Republic of Ireland — now have lower maternal mortality rates than the U.S. All three have prohibited abortion.

An Excellent (and Appalling) Example of Softheadedness

Trump tweet

Earlier this month in Twin Falls, Idaho, three Muslim refugees — a seven-year-old Iraqi boy, plus 14-year-old and 10-year-old Sudanese boys — pleaded guilty to serious felony charges related to their assault last June on a disabled five-year-old girl.

After cornering her in the laundry room of their apartment complex, they stripped her clothes off, sexually assaulted her, then urinated all over her body and in her mouth.  As she struggled to escape, they taunted and laughed at her, all the while videotaping the attack.

A retired nurse stopped the assault, which could have been much worse had she not intervened.

Because it reflected badly on the Obama refugee resettlement program, the MSM rushed to denigrate those who were outraged by the attack and an Obama administration official threatened to prosecute private citizens who discussed the crime.

Then, just days after the boys pleaded guilty, the city council voted UNANIMOUSLY to approve a resolution declaring Twin Falls a “welcoming city” for refugees.

Keeping Promises

With surprisingly little fanfare, President Trump has set about doing something that has evaded presidents of both parties for decades: reshaping, resizing and reforming our vast, dysfunctional federal bureaucracy. If he succeeds, all Americans will be the better for it.

It’s not an easy task. But it is a vital one.

Last Wednesday, the ball really got rolling when Trump ended his temporary freeze on federal hiring, and announced a plan to “resize” the government to make it less costly, more productive and more responsive to average citizens. It’s the kind of thing that private businesses do all the time, but that Big Government with its 2.9 million workers does almost never.

“The president of the United States has asked all of us in the executive branch to start from scratch — a little blank piece of paper, and if you were going to rebuild the executive branch, what would it look like?” Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters.

To that end, Mulvaney has sent a letter to all federal agencies telling them to expect major funding cuts and that calls on them to “reorganize governmental functions and eliminate unnecessary agencies” as part of a plan to make government leaner and more efficient.

Why “Tolerant” Leftists Are So Intolerant

Tolerance

The article linked below is worth printing out to study carefully.  Briefly, it says that, while tolerance is a virtue, all of the virtues are interdependent and people nowadays aren’t being formed in all of them.

The Left promotes tolerance in isolation from other important virtues like justice, temperance, courage, and prudence.

Thus, they lack the wisdom necessary to avoid the two extremes of tolerance:

  • Softheadedness: Putting up with something we should suppress.
  • Narrowmindedness: Suppressing something we should put up with.

For example, they put up with militant Islam, while suppressing peaceful Christianity.  Likewise, they excuse bad behavior in Democrats, while condemning much less heinous acts in Republicans.
