Of Democrats and Evangelicals

There is currently a bit of a rift in the democrat party over pure ideology vs. trying to be inclusive. Some have argued that the party should welcome pro-life candidates in an effort to appeal to evangelicals they assume are upset with president Trump. Of course, this is all simply a façade to fool people into thinking they have softened their view on the slaughter of innocents. Then there are the hardliners who steadfastly insist there is no place in the democrat party for anyone not wholly approving of abortion at any point up until the moment of birth.
There are no ‘moderate’ democrats anymore. Haven’t been for some time. The Obamacare vote proved that. They all just have different price tags. Bart Stupak and a few pro-life democrats were reticent to sign on to the healthcare law at first. Had he remained steadfast it is a certainty he could have gotten millions of grateful citizens for heading off the coming disaster. In the end he settled for a worthless promise from Obama there would be no federal funding for abortion. This promise was forgotten the minute they cast their votes. The next election Stupak and almost all his coalition were voted out by people incensed by their cowardice. The democrat party is a pit of vipers and should be shunned by people of faith. Liberalism is their religion and abortion is their sacrament.

Hillary Wants to Preach

Religion is playing a big role in Clinton’s post-election tour. What does she have to gain from sharing her faith now?

Hillary Clinton wants to preach. That’s what she told Bill Shillady, her long-time pastor, at a recent photo shoot for his new book about the daily devotionals he sent her during the 2016 campaign. Scattered bits of reporting suggest that ministry has always been a secret dream of the two-time presidential candidate: Last fall, the former Newsweek editor Kenneth Woodward revealed that Clinton told him in 1994 that she thought “all the time” about becoming an ordained Methodist minister.

The Ghost of Hillary Still Haunts Evangelicals
She’s gone. It’s time to stop fighting the old war. It almost never fails. When I’m asked to speak to Evangelical audiences about politics, I can predict the reaction to the speech based almost entirely on the age of the audience. If a Christian is older than me, he’s often angry. If younger, usually grateful.
Younger Evangelicals (and younger conservatives more generally) saw Hillary as a corrupt choice for president. She was no more honest than Trump, but unlike Trump she was actively hostile to religious liberty and increasingly radical in her support for abortion. That’s bad enough, of course, but older Evangelicals were carrying a full quarter-century of baggage into the fight. Beginning in 1991, she wasn’t just at the center of scandal after scandal, she was on the wrong end of the culture wars, and she was an icon of the brand of arrogant, condescending feminism that most Christian conservatives openly despise. And she was in our face for decades.

Stop Calling Jesus a SocialistIt must be said that Jesus was and is not a socialist by anyone’s definition, save those of his revisionists. The Gospels do not speak of a heavenly economy of democratic access. Instead, they speak of the Kingdom of God as the advent of an impending regime change whose topsy-turvy standard of behavior threatens the lives of the unprepared. Where Jesus stands in the face of government saying his kingdom is not of this world, those aligned with him, the corpus mysticum, stand as a historical reminder that power itself is fleeting and its programs destined for collapse.

WashPost Hypes Poll: Christians ‘Far More Likely’ to Dismiss the Poor as Lazy Bums
This poll from the Post and the liberal Kaiser Family Foundation is three months old, taken from April 13 to May 1. This is not just a poll question; it’s begging for overgeneralization, with “the poor are mostly lazy” being judged by liberals as akin to “Muslims are mostly terrorists” or “Catholic priests are mostly child abusers.” As a citizen, I’d refuse to answer that on the grounds that it’s used to cast aspersions – conservative voters live in a world of ugly, unproven stereotypes.
It also implies that most Christians are largely bad Christians if they don’t favor a government-organized redistribution of wealth. Liberals, including liberal journalists, often suggest private donations to the poor somehow don’t imply Christian values half as much as supporting government action toward the poor.

2017 Charlie Gard

CHARLIE GARD: Charlie Gard’s parents were unable to use the £1.3 million (about $1.5 million USD) they raised to transfer Charlie to the U.S. for experimental treatment. They’ve decided to start a Charlie Gard Foundation to help families in similar circumstances.

TRANNIES IN THE MILITARY: President Trump could save American taxpayers nearly $2 billion if he follows through on his plan to ban military service for severely gender-confused (“transgender”) individuals.

That is the estimate for the cost of the “transgender” military policy begun under Obama, accordign to a paper by Family Research Council.

CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME: Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have linked chronic fatigue syndrome to variations in 17 immune-system signaling proteins, or cytokines, whose concentrations in the blood correlate with the disease’s severity.

The findings provide evidence that inflammation is a powerful driver of this mysterious condition, whose underpinnings have eluded researchers for 35 years.

“There’s been a great deal of controversy and confusion surrounding ME/CFS — even whether it is an actual disease,” said Davis. “Our findings show clearly that it’s an inflammatory disease and provide a solid basis for a diagnostic blood test.”

FAKE NEWS: The story of a nun who received Vatican permission to witness a Catholic marriage in a remote Canadian diocese with few priests has seized international attention — the implication being it may portend a new role for women in the Church. But the situation is far from unprecedented and is allowed under canon law.

I’LL POST MORE “INTERESTING BUT TOO BRIEF FOR A WHOLE BLOG” BELOW IN COMMENTS IF I FIND ANY MORE TODAY.

Death Panels

Democrat leaders have had nothing to say about Charlie Gard and none of their lapdogs in the media have bothered to ask any of them.

These are the same people who ridiculed the very idea that government-run health care would necessarily involve unelected bean counters making life and death decisions for patients.

Charlie Gard: The Face of Single Payer Health Care

Whenever a Democrat tries to convince you that single payer is the only humane system, REMEMBER CHARLIE GARD!

2017_07 24 Charlie Gard family

He who holds the gold makes the rules. With single payer, unelected bean counters and judges with who-knows-what political and religious agendas hold the gold.

For five months, Charlie Gard’s parents have been fighting a legal battle with the British single payer system to be ALLOWED to take their son out of the country for experimental treatment.

They had the money. They had TWO hospitals – in the U.S. and the Vatican – offering to take him. The U.S. even offered him citizenship.

The courts said no, no, and more no. During all this time, Charlie’s condition has deteriorated to the point where the treatment his parents sought is no longer possible.

The parents are ending their fight and the “Great” British health care system is now free to off one of its inconvenient citizens.

This is the real face of single-payer health care

2017_07 Charlie Gard

Great Britain has nationalized health care. The government pays for any and all health care that British citizens are permitted to receive.

And, because he who has the gold makes the rules, the British government is in charge of deciding what, when, where, why, how, and whether any citizen gets any particular service.

Charlie Gard is a British citizen. British doctors want to turn off his life support.  A British court has ruled they can do this despite his parents’ wishes.

Last week, the European Court of Human Rights ruled against his parents’ appeal to take him to the U.S.

His parents raised £1.3 million on a crowdfunding site for his care. The British courts said that didn’t matter. British citizens are not allowed to have privately funded health care, because that wouldn’t be FAIR.

The Vatican hospital has invited Charlie to come to Rome for care. The British courts have ruled that for “legal reasons”, the baby cannot be allowed to leave the country.

World leaders including U.S. President Donald Trump and Pope Francis have offered their support for British infant Charlie Gard, but his own prime minister, Theresa May, declined to intervene on his behalf.

Until President Trump tweeted about Charlie’s plight, the major networks refused to report his story.

Supporters who run two prominent social media pages for Charlie say they are being censored by Facebook and Twitter.  Messages are being marked as spam and the hashtag #SaveCharlieGard has been suspended.

Just some stuff while I take a break

Backing up my computer is so booooooooooooooooooring. Hope y’all had a good 4th! We had superb weather and a relaxing day. The kids called and sent pics of their kids. What else do two old farts like us need? NOTHING. 🙂

OBAMA // When Donald Trump won the election last fall, many people wondered if Obama would be as courteous as his predecessor George W. Bush. Would Obama be able to fade into the background and stay out of policy debates? Now we know the answer is no. The spotlight is simply too alluring for Obama, who revels in attention. http://legalinsurrection.com/2017/07/obama-is-trying-to-undermine-trump/

CHARLIE GARD // President Trump tweets support for very sick baby Charlie Gard. “If we can help little Charlie Gard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so,” Trump said. The parents have raised $1.8 million to bring him to the United States, but British courts refuse to allow the move and have ordered him taken off life support. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/trump-tweets-support-terminally-sick-baby-charlie-gard-n779271?cid=sm_npd_nn_fb_nn

CHARLIE GARD // British doctors won’t let Charlie Gard travel to Rome to the Pope’s hospital for care. This is just bizarre, and sickening. Remember this case when people push for government-run single payer health care. https://cruxnow.com/vatican/2017/07/04/popes-hospital-says-uk-doctors-wont-let-charlie-gard-travel-care/

O’Keefe Drops 3rd Undercover Bombshell
CNN Producer: “Voters Stupid as ‘Sh*t”
Project Veritas dropped a 3rd bombshell undercover video of CNN early Friday morning as part of a series dubbed ‘American Pravda’. In this video, CNN Associate Producer, Jimmy Carr trashes American voters by calling them ‘stupid as sh*t’. He also trashed Kellyanne Conway saying that “she looks like she got hit with a shovel”.

Bonifield went on to say that the CEO of CNN, Jeff Zucker demanded that his news channel get back to the Russia story that is a ratings winner for CNN.

Bonifield laughed off the notion that the media has an ethical responsibility and said ‘it’s a business’ and ‘they gotta do what they gotta do to make money’.

The second video was released by Project Veritas on Wednesday. It shows one of CNN’s most prominent left-leaning political commentators, Van Jones admitting that the Russia story is a ‘Nothing Burger’.

PV Journalist: “Would it be fair to question the, I don’t want to be rude here. I’ll be careful how I put it, you’re apparently some percentage Irish or Scottish. Would it be fair to question the intellect of the American voter?”

Jimmy Carr: “Oh no. They’re stupid as sh*t.”

Jimmy Carr continued to bash the Trump White House and said that Kellyanne Conway is an ‘awful woman’ who “looks like she got hit with a shovel”.

Jimmy Carr also brought up the fact that their ratings are soaring because they reporting on Russia, ISIS etc.

CNN Producer: American Voters Are ‘Stupid as S**t’ And We All Know Trump Is A ‘F**king Crazy’ Clown

Carr also takes a swipe at Kellyanne Conway, the Counselor to the President, as the blonde who looks like she got hit with a shovel. He also says that President Trump isn’t a Republican, and that he’s probably paid for abortions.

European Court Of Human Rights Sentences 10-Month-Old Sick Baby To Die, Won’t Let Parents Come To US For Possible Life-Saving Treatment

He’s a terminally ill 10-month-old baby who has now been sentenced to death by the European Court on Human Rights – an Orwellian organization if ever there has been one – which determined that while his parents wanted to take him to the United States for a long-shot potentially life-saving treatment, they could not. Instead, the Court ruled, the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children would withdraw all life support, killing Charlie. What was the Court’s justification? Charlie had to “die with dignity.”

MSNBC fires Greta Van Susteren, replaces her with liberal host

SHE WASN’T CONFRONTATIONAL ENOUGH TO SUIT THE PUNKS
MSNBC said that Van Susteren’s nightly 6 p.m. show would be replaced with one hosted by Ari Melber, MSNBC’s chief legal correspondent who also hosts his own weekend show, “The Point.”

The reliably liberal Melber worked on John Kerry’s 2004 presidential campaign and also served as a legislative aide to Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., before attending law school and moving into media work.

Report: Fraud In Obamaphone Program As High As 65 Percent
Whenever a government program is handing out free stuff you can bet there will be massive fraud.
A massive portion of Obamaphone recipients are receiving the benefit after lying on their applications, according to a new 90-page report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO).
An undercover sting operation showed ineligible applications were approved 63 percent of the time, and a review that found that 36 to 65 percent of beneficiaries in various categories had lied in easily-detectable ways but were approved anyway.
The fraud reached unheard-of proportions because the Federal Communications Commission let the task of screening for eligibility fall to phone companies that profit off of enrolling as many people as possible.

The Golden Rule

He who has the gold makes the rules.

HEALTH CARE toon

While Republicans in-fight over health care, liberals in Congress are getting bolder and calling for even greater government control over health care decisions. Liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren is telling fellow Democrats to campaign on single-payer (government-run) health care for the 2018 elections. “Now is the time for the next step,” said Warren. “And the next step is single payer.” http://cvote.it/2snVAFe

A court in Europe says a child has to be removed from life support — despite the fact that the child’s parents raised $1.6 million to take care of little Charlie. “If the State runs the health care system, ultimately they will be the ones who decide whose life is worth saving and whose isn’t. That’s not just a byproduct of socialized medicine — it’s the point,” writes Matt Walsh. http://cvote.it/2so8PWv
