JESUS’ BAPTISM: Clearing out landmines — Churches at the site along the banks of the Jordan river where Jesus is believed to have been baptized could reopen within a year, following progress on a project to clear thousands of landmines and other ordinance from the location.

2018_12 11 ABORTION its not just about the babies

ABORTION: Don’t expect compassion from people who murder innocent babies for a living — On Nov 9, 2018, an abortion clinic put a bleeding patient out on to the street, because … well, it was closing time and they’d already gotten their money. They couldn’t even be bothered to call 911 for her. Fortunately, she was able to do it for herself. An ambulance came and took her to a hospital for treatment.

SCOTUS: Not as big a deal as some are making out — Legal beagles say the high court’s decision to not hear the Planned Parenthood funding case may not be the harbinger about future abortion cases that some are making it out to be. The issue wasn’t abortion, but whether Medicaid recipients had the right to choose providers for annual health screens, contraceptive coverage and cancer screening. Benjamin Clapper, executive director of Louisiana Right to Life, sees hope for the future, noting that Louisiana 2016 Act 304 is still in place. The act prevents tax dollars from going to any “entity or organization that performs abortions, or that contracts with an entity or organization that performs abortions, in this state.”

TRUMP: Pro-life and Pro-science — The Trump administration is investing up to $20 million for the next two years to determine effective alternatives to using tissue from aborted babies for research.

PROJECT VERITAS: Big Win! — A federal judge ruled Monday that Americans have a right to secretly record their public officials, including police, when they are engaged in their government duties.

ICE RAIDS: Bad guys rounded up in NJ A five-day federal immigration sweep in New Jersey rounded up 105 illegals, including several wanted by Interpol for alleged crimes in their home countries. It also targeted people who authorities say re-entered the U.S. after being deported and several alleged gang members.

BABY IT’S NOT COLD OUTSIDE: Billionaire Bloomberg helped finance this INANE project. And he’s photographed with it. In London. Doesn’t he live in NYC? Doesn’t it take a pot load of fossil fuel to cross the Atlantic? Oh wait, he’s a LIBERAL who “fights climate change”, so it’s okay, right? As of June 2018, his net worth was estimated at $51.7 billion, making him the 8th-richest person in the United States and the 11th richest person in the world. So I’m guessing he has a private jet that is undoubtedly wind powered. Or maybe it’s hydro-powered with melting ice .

The Flood Continues

I’ve posted a few articles the last few days because I’ve had days off work. Don’t know when I’ll be back.

Illegal Immigration Last Month Hit Highest Level in Over a Decade

This photo accompanies this article. Finding women in this sea of humanity is like playing “Where’s Waldo?”

In November 2018, there were close to 52,000 border crossings on the southern border, alone, marking the highest level of illegal immigration in the month of November since 2006.

The continuing rise of illegal immigration at the southern border indicates that Fiscal Year 2019 will see the biggest boom of illegal immigration in more than a decade, according to Princeton Researcher Steven Kopits.

In total, Kopits projects that there will be more than 600,000 border crossings next year — a level of illegal immigration that the country has not seen since Fiscal Year 2008, when total southwest border apprehensions exceeded 705,000.

At the same time of the rising illegal immigration totals, the U.S. is continuing to admit more than a million legal immigrants every year to take American jobs. The mass immigration scheme is a boon to real estate developers, who thrive on the booming populations in major cities, and employers who benefit from a flooded labor market with stagnant U.S. wages and displaced American workers.

The country’s mass immigration policy also has massive rewards for Democrats, who are set to import between seven to eight million new foreign-born voters solely from the process known as “chain migration,” and overall, an additional 15 million new foreign-born voters.

One-Eyed-Jack Law

Victor Davis Hanson, a writer with superb skills, summarizes the Mueller team’s efforts to date.

Criminals and partisans, accusing others of criminality and partisanship

So far, we know that the U.S. government decided to intervene in a political campaign to help one candidate and to smear the other — under the pretext of Russian “collusion.”

Mueller cannot fulfill the hype of the past 18 months.

Mueller was tasked to find collusion (itself not a crime) committed during 2015 and 2016, not to prompt more purported crimes by setting perjury traps, and purported obstruction-of-justice liabilities.  …

In sum, a group of Obama-administration officials and appointees in 2016 colluded with Clinton-campaign personnel to ensure that Donald Trump would not be elected in 2016 and, later, to make sure that his transition and early presidency would fail or be aborted.

In Case You Haven’t Heard

After Kevin Hart was forced out as Oscar host over decade-old jokes that were deemed homophobic, the Oscars committee was scrambling to find a replacement that absolutely no one would find offensive.

The same thing happened to this year’s Heisman Trophy winner over a comment he made about gays when he was 14. you can never appease those who insist on being offended by everything. So, The Babylon Bee has come up with a foolproof solution.

Oscars To Be Hosted By Boom Box Playing Inoffensive, Calming Ambient Noise

The traditional opening monologue, according to sources, will just be a track dubbed “Amazon Rainforest.” Oscars attendees will be soothed by the sounds of rain falling in a lush rainforest as pictures of idyllic locations will be played on a screen. Stagehands will be ready to charge onstage and tackle the boom box, should anyone become upset by its tranquil sounds.

After each part of the ceremony, the boom box will be placed on stage, and an assistant will cue up a cassette tape with a different track to help everyone at the Oscars feel safe, warm, and loved. Of course, the boom box is not sentient and so cannot actually announce the presentation of any awards. The Oscars committee says this is by design, as no one will be offended by not getting an award.

‘Tis The Season

I remember playing what we called the “parking lot game” when I was in college. We’d park near the back of the lot and go into the mall. We’d come out with our keys in hand, watching the cars circle like vultures, waiting for that primo spot near the door. We’d start looking like our car was close and we were trying to spot it, just to see how many cars we could get to follow us, hoping to grab the coveted spot. I think our best tally was four. Things got was too serious when these girls didn’t move fast enough to suit the entitled minorities who fully expected these girls to kiss their ass. The girls all ended up hospitalized. Homies don’t play when it comes to their stuff.

3 teen girls beaten over mall parking spot

“I noticed the car had pulled up behind me,” McFadden said. “I had told my friend to wait because I was not pulling out yet because I wanted to sit and wait. Another car, about three cars out from me, was pulling out, and some people backed into that spot and got out of the car and came walking past my car.”

McFadden said the four people – two men and two women – were mumbling something as they walked past. She said she didn’t think they were talking to them. McFadden said as one of her friends leaned into the car to say something to her, one of the women turned and began yelling at them.

The women also allegedly shouted racial epithets toward the McFadden and her friends.

“I was on the phone with the police at the time and I just started reading the license plate over and over to the dispatcher because I knew they were going to try to leave,” McFadden said. “They got in their car, and they were screaming ‘you dumb white bi***es. You are too comfortable.’ They just kept reiterating that we were white and too comfortable, and we were stupid white girls and all this stuff.”

I can predict with 100% confidence absolutely nothing will happen to their assailants if and when they’re ever caught. It doesn’t work that way.

The Chicago Way

This kid ran for alderman to make a statement. His opponent was one of strongman Mike Madigan’s loyal storm troopers. Madigan is the most powerful man in the state. Insurgents are dealt with quickly and permanently.

A college kid running for 13th Ward alderman gets a lesson in the Chicago Way

The history of the little guy being squashed by massive Chicago political clout at election time is just too long to print without weeping.

But the story for today is so amazing that some Chicago election officials have never seen the like.

The Goliath is the 13th Ward Democratic Organization run by House Speaker Michael J. Madigan, aka Boss Madigan, the most powerful politician in the state. Boss Madigan has long hand-picked his aldermen. He likes them loyal and quiet. The current silent alderman of the 13th Ward is Marty Quinn.

Yes, I do know the neighborhood. For decades, my father and uncle ran a family supermarket in the 13th Ward, at 58th and Pulaski. We’d cash paychecks without charging a check-cashing fee. On government paycheck days, the line of city, county and state workers would ring around the store, for hours upon hours, thousands of them.

To get on the ballot, Krupa was required to file 473 valid signatures of ward residents with the Chicago Board of Elections. Krupa filed 1,703 signatures.

But before he filed his signatures with the elections board, an amazing thing happened along the Chicago Way.

An organized crew of political workers — or maybe just civic-minded individuals who care about reform — went door to door with official legal papers. They asked residents to sign an affadavit revoking their signature on Krupa’s petition.

More than 2,700 revocations were turned over to the elections board to cancel the signatures on Krupa’s petitions. Chicago Board of Elections officials had never seen such a massive pile of revocations.

“The board has received a few revocations here and there in very rare electoral board cases over the years,” said election board spokesman Jim Allen.

But more than 2,700? Impossible, no?

The number of revocations far exceeds the number of signatures Krupa collected. That means false affidavits were filed with the elections board.

The Bi-Annual Chicago Teachers’ Strike Called Off

They go on strike every two years demanding 7% raises, smaller classes, more paid holidays and shorter working hours. Then squeal like pigs when the city has to close 50 schools and lay off thousands of teachers because of budget cuts. The big flap this year was about schools for the millions of illegals infesting Chicago. See, homeowners have to pay for schools through property taxes. Illegals pay nothing and their kids get their education free.

Chicago Teachers Union suspends strike after agreement that includes ‘sanctuary schools’ for immigrants

More than 500 teachers walked out of 15 schools associated with Acero Schools, one of Chicago’s largest charter school networks. The teacher strike, which started on Tuesday and continued into Friday, cancelled classes for more than 7,000 children.

The CTU’s strike demanded for increased salaries for educators, a sanctuary school policy that would protect illegal immigrant children from deportation, and smaller class sizes, according to Chalkbeat

Acero filed complaints with the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Board and National Labor Relations Board on Friday to stop the strike, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. Picketers allegedly offered alcohol to a school security guard in front of minors. Another allegation said a picketer threatened to call immigration officials to a parent who was bringing a child to school.

Teachers will be expected to be in school on Monday.

Is She Really Going Out With Her?

Hillary Clinton Takes Huma as Her Date to $100 Million Indian Wedding Looking Like a Bag Lady

Seems the rumors of Hillary Clinton being a heterosexual are vastly overstated.Personally I doubt she has enough compassion to care about anyone but herself.Maybe she and Huma get together and whine about what losers their husbands are. (That’s Huma in the background.)

Hillary Clinton arrived in Udaipur with her date Huma Abedin over the weekend for Isha Ambani’s pre-wedding party.

Isha Ambani, the daughter of India’s wealthiest man is getting married to Anand Priamal, the son of an Indian billionaire and the week-long wedding reportedly cost $100 million.

The Ambanis, who made their money in oil and gas, are Clinton Foundation donors.
Hillary Clinton wore a blue muumuu to some of the pre-wedding festivities and later changed into a gold dress to watch Beyonce perform

Betrayed…Again

Why is it that Supreme Court judges appointed by republican presidents turn out to be liberals in disguise so often? Souter was. Roberts was. Justices appointed by democrat presidents always, ALWAYS are just as hard left as advertised. They never suffer disappointments. It looks like we may have been conned again.

Justices Roberts and Kavanaugh Betray Pro-Lifers. As Expected


Come on. Who didn’t see this coming?

After all the push and fighting pro-lifers did to make sure Robert Kavanaugh took a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, how could we not have expected to be betrayed as soon as possible? Roberts is Roberts. I mean, that ship has sailed. He’s on the organ donor waiting list for the first spine transplant.

The Supreme Court Monday rebuffed efforts by states to block funding to Planned Parenthood.

It left in place two lower court opinions that said that states violate federal law when they terminate Medicaid contracts with Planned Parenthood affiliates who offer preventive care for low income women.

It would have taken four justices to agree to hear the issue, and only three conservative justices — Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch — voted to hear the case.

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh appeared to side with the court’s liberals in not taking up the case — showing an effort to avoid high-profile abortion-related issues for now.

Justice Thomas Accuses Colleagues of Avoiding Abortion Issues as SCOTUS Passes on Planned Parenthood Defunding Appeal

One justice who has never disappointed.

In a scathing dissent, Justice Clarence Thomas implied that the high court’s decision had to do with a desire to avoid the politically polarizing issue of abortion.

“What explains the court’s refusal to do its job here?” he wrote. “I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named ‘Planned Parenthood.’ That makes the court’s decision particularly troubling, as the question presented has nothing to do with abortion.”
