2019_02 02 Feast of the Presentation

MASCOT CUTENESS: The kids are so excited about the upcoming celebration of their daddy’s birthday. Bootz, who hasn’t quite mastered all his phonemes, keeps wishing him, “Happy Dirtday.”

FULL TERM, VIABLE BABIES ARE BEING ABORTED: Hillary lied –Roe and Doe made it legal to abort babies up to birth and there have been butchers in this country willing to do that for a fee ever since. The recent push by Democrat states to codify the abomination is only in response to the threat Justice Kavanaugh poses to Roe and Doe. It’s not new.

MAJORITY OF AMERICANS APPALLED BY LATE TERM ABORTION: A 2015 poll found that 81% of Americans support banning abortion after the first trimester of pregnancy. Even among those who identify themselves as “pro-choice,” two-thirds believe second and third trimester abortions should be illegal.

BUILD THE WALL: It’s for the children — “Anyone who says there is no crisis at our southern border needs to talk to the victims who have lived it. In fiscal year 2018, Homeland Security law enforcement made 1,588 human trafficking arrests and identified 308 victims. Of those 1,588 arrests, 1,543 were for sex trafficking violations. All told, anywhere from 30 to 80 percent—depending on the report—of women are sexually assaulted on the journey to America’s southern border. Traffickers thrive in the shadows. To shut these monsters down, we need to cut off their access. Democrats and Republicans alike have a moral obligation to make sure that happens before February 15. Safe, legal Ports of Entry should be the only way into America.” – The White House

As a former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) special agent on the southern border who fought sex trafficking for over a decade, I can say with certainty that the issue of the border wall should be not about power and partisan politics. It should be about the children – the tens of thousands of them who have been and are being trafficked into the U.S. and forced into the commercial sex trade.” — Timothy Ballard, founder of the nonprofit Operation Underground Railroad.

2019_02 02 Dirty Hillary toon

DIRTY HILLARY: Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Party hired Fusion GPS to find dirt on The Donald.

  1. Glenn SIMPSON, founder of Fusion GPS, sent former MI-6 agent Christopher STEELE to RUSSIA to find dirt on Trump.
  2. SIMPSON and STEELE both kept a constant back channel to Bruce OHR, the fourth-highest ranking member of the DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE.
  3. Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie OHR, worked for Fusion GPS right alongside Simpson and “coordinated before, during and after the election” with both Christopher Steele and Glenn Simpson.
  4. Fusion GPS cooked up and leaked the phony Trump DOSSIER.
  5. Fusion GPS also organized the MEETING with Trump advisers and the Russian lawyers.

2016 Maddow exclusive toon

TDS: Rachel Maddow needs help — This week during the freezing polar vortex, Rachel Maddow warned viewers of a Russian attack on the Dakotas.

Maddow: It is like negative 50 degrees in the Dakotas right now. What would happen if Russia killed the power in Fargo today? What would happen if all the natural gas lines that service Sioux Falls just poofed on the coldest day in recent memories, and it wasn’t in our power whether or not to turn them back on?

I’m sorry, but WHAT? How exactly would Russia stop natural gas service to the Dakotas? According to the North Dakota Department of Commerce, “North Dakota produced 155 billion cubic feet of natural gas, processed 97 billion cubic feet of natural gas and paid $9.6 million in production taxes in 2011.”

It’s sad how Rachel Maddow goes to bed every night and wakes up every morning obsessed with her disappointment over Hillary’s loss and rage over Trump’s win. It’s been two years, woman. GET OVER IT.

OBAMA did not build this economy: Donald J. Trump DID.

2019_02 01 Pro life center

PREGNANCY CENTER VANDALIZED: A pro-life pregnancy center in Virginia was vandalized early Friday morning after someone broke a window and spray-painted “Fake,” “You hate women” and “Jesus hates this s—” on the signs and building.

AOC: Dems plan to primary her for 2020 — The Democrats’ newest and shiniest lawmaker, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, may have a short-lived career in Washington. Some of the groups angry with her are the Black Caucus, the Hispanic Caucus, and various politicians from her own district.

MEASLES: Multi-state outbreaks of highly contagious, preventable disease — There have been 187 confirmed cases of measles in New York State this winter clustered in unvaccinated communities in New York City and Rockland County. Another 38 confirmed cases and 13 suspected cases in Clark County, Washington. which is considered a “hot spot” for anti-vaxxers. Now health officials in Georgia, Hawaii and Oregon are reporting they have at least one — if not multiple — confirmed cases of measles in their states.

GOOD: These bans make me furious — The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) is representing Dr. Dovid Schwartz of the Chabad Lubavitch Orthodox Jewish Community in his suit against a 2018 law prohibiting paid services that “seek to change a person’s sexual orientation or seek to change a person’s gender identity to conform to the sex of such individual that was recorded at birth.” First, second, and repeat violations are punished by fines of $1,000, $5,000, or $10,000, respectively. They are arguing that the law violates the First Amendment’s guaranteed right to free speech. ADF legal counsel Jeana Hallock said., “The government has no right to dictate the personal goals an adult pursues with his or her therapist.” Damn straight!

    Measles is not a fatal disease. There has not been a single death from measles in 15 years. There have, however, been around 450 deaths and thousands of serious reactions reported caused by the MMR vaccine.

    • I’m so old that when I was growing up there were no vaccines for measles, mumps, rubella, or chicken pox. Everyone got them. You stayed home from school for a few days (it was easy back then, because everyone had a mom who was home during the day), and then you went back to school. No one that I knew of ever suffered any lasting damage as a result of having had any of those diseases. I can see where they could be dangerous to someone who had a compromised immune system or other serious health problems, but to a normal healthy child, they’re harmless. They also confer lifelong immunity to the disease, which vaccines cannot do.

        I don’t know about measles, but mumps has very serious consequences for adults who didn’t catch it in childhood. And pregnant women who catch rubella have deformed babies. I was very cautious about vaccinating my kids, because we all have immune issues. But even my cautious doctor said the MMR was safer than the diseases.

        • I understand that they can be dangerous for some adults who didn’t have the diseases in childhood, and for pregnant women. But back in the old days when everyone caught them in childhood, that wasn’t an issue. Now most kids get vaccinated, but the vaccines don’t confer lifelong immunity the way having the disease does. Immunized kids grow up to be adults who forget (or neglect) to get the booster shots, and then they end up getting the disease at an age when it can be dangerous.

    After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?
    Journal of Medical Ethics

    Abstract
    Abortion is largely accepted even for reasons that do not have anything to do with the fetus’ health. By showing that (1) both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons, (2) the fact that both are potential persons is morally irrelevant and (3) adoption is not always in the best interest of actual people, the authors argue that what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.

    This was the part I saw quoted that caught my attention:

    The newborn and the fetus are morally equivalent
    The moral status of an infant is equivalent to that of a fetus in the sense that both lack those properties that justify the attribution of a right to life to an individual.

    Both a fetus and a newborn certainly are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a ‘person’ in the sense of ‘subject of a moral right to life’. We take ‘person’ to mean an individual who is capable of attributing to her own existence some (at least) basic value such that being deprived of this existence represents a loss to her. This means that many non-human animals and mentally retarded human individuals are persons, but that all the individuals who are not in the condition of attributing any value to their own existence are not persons. Merely being human is not in itself a reason for ascribing someone a right to life. Indeed, many humans are not considered subjects of a right to life: spare embryos where research on embryo stem cells is permitted, fetuses where abortion is permitted, criminals where capital punishment is legal.

    I didn’t read any more than the parts quoted above, but I was reminded why I rarely read through the actual twisted “thinking” that goes into it.

    FYI FWIW

      “having a child can itself be an unbearable burden for the psychological health of the woman or for her already existing children” … too bad these pro-death people don’t bother to even acknowledge, much less research the mental (and physical) problems post-abortive women suffer.
