The media’s negligence in Charlie Gard’s injury needs no further proof

Published

on

Little Charlie Gard is going to die in a British hospital if nothing is done to try to save him. The media cares more for its own already-tarnished reputation than his life.

Res ipsa loquitur.

Their negligence is self-evident. Even Pope Francis corrected a horrendous spiritual error by his own Pontifical Academy, that sided with the British government. President Trump tweeted “we would be delighted to” help, if we can.

All morning, the press continued its blanket coverage of Trump’s tweets about wrestling and “fraudulent news network.” There was barely a mention of the humanitarian offer to a dying baby’s family. When it was mentioned, the networks used the dry news language of a pool report (relying on the AP). They focused on little Charlie’s condition, and the reaction of  the pope.

Deeper discussions of the “moral and political questions about the role of the state at the end of life” (The Atlantic) angled in on the outrage, and possible schism within the Catholic church.

Really the issue is stunningly simple. A baby is the responsibility and ward of his parents. Period. If this is not so, then a baby is the responsibility and ward of the State and the parents are mere agents of the State.

If we are all agents of the State, then we are not truly free moral agents. Then it follows that the State is the source of all rights, privileges and moral law.

Either we have a free society of citizens who, by their consent, choose and institute a government of men (and women), for various purposes to safeguard freedoms and inalienable rights granted by God. Or we have a society organized by a State to meet goals and effect conditions ordered by the leaders of the State.

In the E.U., citizens have acquiesced to the latter. In America, most cling to the former. President Trump simply echoed the heart of Americans of all stripes when he offered to help, because if the family has the means, and the baby is truly their charge, they should be allowed to care for him in the best manner they’ve chosen, within, of course, reasonable limits that they not harm him worse than his current prognosis.

Charlie Gard’s current prognosis is certain death.

The American media, mostly populated by and led by liberals who in fact agree with the E.U.’s position that little Charlie is a ward of the State and not his own parents, would rather ignore the only pertinent issue in this story. So they avoided it, minimized it, and swept it under the rug.

Their actions are negligent because they care more for their own opinions than the feelings and strong beliefs of most of America.

No evidence besides Charlie Gard is necessary to prove their guilt. Res ipsa loquitur. The thing speaks for itself.

Marco Rubio whips out Bible verse that goes after the Florida recount debacle

Marco Rubio whips out Bible verse that goes after the Florida recount debacle

There are two prevailing opinions pertaining to the Florida election and subsequent recounts. Democrats generally feel like it’s good to “count every ballot” until they win, even if that means “finding” more ballots to add to their candidates’ tallies. Republicans have been fighting against the recounts despite that play coming across ingenuously to voters on both sides.

We should want every valid vote counted. The operative word there is “valid.”

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), a Catholic, Tweeted a Bible verse that seemed apropos to the current debacle in Florida.

One might even say this draws in one of the favorite punching bags for Republicans, former presidential candidate “Crooked” Hillary Clinton. That wasn’t the intent, I’m sure, but it’s always fun to laugh at Hillary.

3 reasons President Trump should offer Asia Bibi asylum

3 reasons President Trump should offer Asia Bibi asylum

There are certain political moves that can be considered “no-brainers” for anyone in Washington DC. Offering persecuted Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi asylum is one of them.

The drawbacks of doing so are few but potent. It would enrage hardline Muslims in the United States who may go after Bibi and her family, but that’s a risk she’ll face anywhere she goes. It would put US citizens and military personnel at greater risk than they already are when traveling abroad, especially in Muslim majority nations like Pakistan. Lastly, it would spark negative press against the President who would ask whether or not he would do the same for a Muslim in a similar circumstance.

All of those negatives are mitigated by three important positives.

  1. It goes against the bigotry narrative. Don’t get me wrong. Mainstream media and leftists will still try to paint the act of offering asylum to a persecuted Pakistani family as racist because she’s Christian. Thankfully, most Americans are smart enough to see through that false narrative.
  2. Pakistan won’t mind. If anything, their preference would be for America, which is already evil in the eyes of most hardline Islamic Pakistanis, to accept a burden that will only perpetuate a narrative that already exists.
  3. It’s the right thing to do. Any time the President of the United States can do the right thing, he should. Lately, there just haven’t been many opportunities to do so.

Every day that passes brings Asia Bibi and her family closer to the dangers that are closing in on them in Pakistan. They need to be taken in as soon as possible. Italy, Germany, and even Canada have offered to step up. The United States needs to do the same.

Why does the Left have the same agenda after they turned socialist?

Why does the Left have the same agenda after they turned socialist

What does it say about the Left when they admitted to the truth, but kept the same ideas?

There was a time when the nation’s Left vehemently denied being socialist. No one was supposed to state the obvious truth that their agenda bore a striking resemblance to communist ideas from ancient Greece. Nor were they to be compared to that expressed 500 years ago in Sir Thomas More’s work ‘Utopia’ [Published in 1516]

Even when it was obvious with admitted socialist Senator Bernie Sanders agreeing with the Democrats in most respects, the Leftists still denied reality. Such is the case that, lies, deception and denial are part and parcel of their usual tactics. They still persist in denying that they incessantly demanding gun confiscation, while demanding gun confiscation.

The Left’s miraculous transformation to the obvious.

Then a few years ago something truly miraculous took place, some polling data showed that those who were unfamiliar with the oppression and mass murder that is endemic to socialism began to warm up to it’s promise. By ‘warm up’ we mean that some fell for the prospect of free health care, free college, free housing, free money, etc. Never mind that those promises were as worthless as Obama’s oft repeated lie that one could keep your health plan.

Suddenly Bernie Sanders became a ‘rock star’, followed by a cascade of newly minted socialists. What once was verboten to admit became the in thing to be an up and coming communist. Almost overnight, Democrats of all stripes became admitting what has been obvious for decades, that they were Reds through and through. Yes, red is the true colour of the socialist-Left, but that story of yet again another deception will have to wait for another discussion.

Nothing changed in the Left’s national agenda, why?

Strangely enough, aside from a few cosmetic items, the nation’s Left has the same policy ideas they had before they admitted the obvious. Back when she was First Lady, Hillary Clinton spearheaded a drive for nationally socialized health care. This is now one of the Left’s biggest vote-buying schemes, and socialism’s biggest goodies. They can admit to its collectivist in nature now, but they denied it previously.

Back when they were trying to sell the disaster soon to be known as Obamacare, they had to avoid bringing up the topic of the term ‘redistributing wealth’ a staple of socialism if there ever was one. Such would also have to be the case with their promises of ‘free healthcare for all’ since money doesn’t grow on trees.

Liberty Control is the last of our examples being a vestige of every socialist regime. The collectivist ideologies have to rely on force to redistribute wealth as well as suppress any opposition when the glorious promises cannot be fulfilled. They can’t very well do this with an armed citizenry, thus one of their highest priorities is to grab those guns. The Left has been on this same little quest for years, incrementally edging closer and closer to their ‘firearms–free’ nirvana.

The Takeaway.

It should be patently obvious why the Left’s national agenda never changed from when they denied being socialists to admitting the truth of the matter. They were dyed in the wool socialists all along, they just couldn’t be honest about it, as is the case with everything else they do.
