HELP WANTED! Dems want pro-lifers to run for Congress

Published

on

Do pro-life Democrats exist? New Mexico Democratic congressman and chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Ben Ray Luján announced on Monday that in an effort to win back the House of Representative the DCCC is willing to fund a pro-life candidate in the upcoming 2018 election.

This move by the DCCC is in stark contrast to DNC chairman Tom Perez’s statement that being pro-life is non-negotiable. Perez wants the DNC to be the party of unrestricted and unlimited abortion rights.

Now the real question is, does the DCCC want pro-life Democrats and do they exist? The answer is no and no. Pro-life Democrats don’t exist and here is the reason why. What the DCCC is advocating is the willingness to support pro-choice Democrats with more restrictions on abortion. First, we need to understand what pro-life means.

Being pro-life is believing unequivocally that no abortion can occur once life begins (I will go into when life begins later in this article). Pro-choice advocates like Perez don’t believe it is a life until the baby is born. Pro-choice light candidates believe it is life under certain circumstances.

So the reality is most Democrats, and even most Republicans are pro-choice. The fight isn’t over pro-life verse pro-choice, it’s a fight over the restrictions we are willing to accept. How do I know this? The historical data from Gallup shows that consistently people believe abortion should be legal under any circumstance stands at 29% of the time. Legal under most 13%. Legal only in a few 36% and finally 18% illegal in all cases. Gallup also states that when rape or incest caused the pregnancy, abortion should be legal, stands at 75% to 22% of the time. In the same poll, 46% considered themselves pro-life.

You see the problem. How can 46% of respondents think they are pro-life but only 22% believe it is wrong to abort a baby if caused by rape or incest.

It seems illogical and inconsistent. If you are pro-life, you believe that abortion is taking of an innocent life even under rape and incest. Now in the rape case, would you argue that it wasn’t consensual sex, therefore, that it’s okay because somehow the baby in the womb ceases to be a life. What if the incestual relationship was consensual would that be murder? Would it be logical to say that since most people don’t believe a woman should have to carry a baby to term in the case of rape or incest that most people are pro-choice with differing exceptions, and it isn’t about when life begins?

If it is about when is it right to take the life of the innocent for a genuinely pro-life person I believe that can only be when the mother’s life is beyond a doubt at risk, and no other choice exists.  At the same time, instead of aborting the baby we deliver the baby and use all our medical resources to save the life of the child.

As in war, we do everything we can to limit civilian casualties, but when we decide to take an innocent life, we do it to save others. The decision on how you weigh human life is a difficult question. Do I bomb a hospital or school which is used to store rockets which are used to launch missiles into civilian territories or do we not? These are always difficult question and decisions.

Just like in the case of rape and incest. I’m not this cold-hearted person that can’t imagine the horrors the woman went through. These acts are inhuman and some of the worse crimes a human can do to another person. I believe wholeheartedly that the woman is a victim and is not to blame. So why do I think abortion is still wrong in these cases when life has been determined?

The reason is as a pro-lifer, I believe unequivocally that the baby is a human being. The baby is the result of a terrible, unjustifiable act which the child and the mother had no part in it. We have already one victim the mother, by aborting the baby do we put the blame of the rapist on the baby and kill the child and thus create another victim.

You see that is why I’m pro-life and not pro-choice. I believe that babies in the womb are human beings and worthy of the same respect, dignity, and protection under the law which all of us enjoy.  So when the DCCC is talking about pro-life Democrats it’s not about pro-life Democrats it’s about supporting pro-choice Democrats with fewer exceptions.

If we are to say we are pro-life, we must understand what that means and at the same time when the DCCC talks about supporting supposed pro-life candidates we need to know what that means as well.

Now can there be differences between pro-lifers? The answer is yes and I believe there are two positions that are logical positions on when life begins and still be considered pro-life.

The first position is life begins at conception. So when asked when does life begin, in the beginning, is a logical conclusion. Life begins at the beginning and thus no termination of a pregnancy is permitted.

The second position is when a heartbeat exists. How do we determine if someone is dead? We determine that by an absence of a heartbeat. How do we determine if someone is alive? They have a heartbeat.

Therefore, it is an intellectually logical position to say that life begins when the heart begins to beat. This position would allow rape, incest, or any other type of termination of pregnancy before a heartbeat exists; any abortion after a heartbeat would be considered pro-choice because you are terminating a life.

The purpose of this article is to explain what pro-life really means. I hope this article has helped foster a discussion on the issue and helped you contemplate the issue and helped you think about the issue in a logical manner instead of simply an emotional reaction.

Let me know what you think.

Forget lowering unemployment, Bernie Sanders will eliminate it!

Published

on

During his 2016 Democrat primary campaign, Bernie Sanders was “absolutely sympathetic” to the idea of a universal basic income; however, he felt that his plans for a $15/hr. minimum wage, expanding Social Security to pay for guaranteed healthcare, and providing free college would do more than creating just another government handout.

But now Bernie has apparently found a way to accomplish his goals as well as the goals of the universal basic income crowd.
Yesterday, we learned that the self-proclaimed Democratic-Socialist is ready to announce a plan that will guarantee every American “who wants or needs one” a lifetime government job paying at least $15/hr. and proving paid family and medical leave plus retirement, health, and vacation benefits.

While the details are still being worked on, Bernie has admitted that he currently has no idea exactly how much his plan will cost or where the money to pay for it will come from. However, if his 2016 campaign is any indication, the cost will be irrelevant, and the money to pay for it will come from “the billionaires and oligarchs” he refers to as the “top one percent of income earners.”

While it would be tempting to shrug off Bernie’s plan as the rantings of a socialist loon living to the left of the left-wing, we should remember how his Marxist beliefs concerning income inequality caught fire with a generation of Constitutionally ignorant voters raised on the socialist ideology taught in today’s public schools indoctrination centers.

And a poll conducted during the 2016 primary season showed that a majority of millennials rejected capitalism.

Democrats would see a huge voter advantage by creating a new state-run workforce dependent upon them for their jobs. And politicians from both parties would have a new voter-bloc to advance their ideological and political agendas.

Bernie’s plan is being called a guaranteed-jobs program, but the only guarantee it gives us is the destruction of capitalism and Constitutional America.

The Collective Irony of the Left.

Published

on

By

While the nation’s Socialist Left deviously pretends to be ‘Liberal’ or ‘Democratic’ it actually functions undemocratically against Liberty.

For all of their pretence about being ‘Liberal’ or ‘for the people’, the Left is extremely oligarchical. Examine the Left’s Socialist national agenda, taking note many of its beliefs that are handed down from a select few that are to be accepted by the rank and file without question. Also, consider what happens to those who stray from Leftist orthodoxy.

Contrast this authoritarianism of the nation’s Left with the free-thinking albeit chaotic nature of the Pro-Liberty, Conservatarian-Right. While the Left will all parrot the same talking points for the outrage of the week. It’s extremely difficult to convince those on the Right to use the proper word in describing the opposition. [ Leftist in place of Liberal to be exact ]

Leftists ‘Independently’ marching to the exact same music.

Look at the protest marches sponsored by the usual suspects of the oligarchical Left, events from around the nation will feature the same talking points emblazoned on the signs, the same slogans, down to the very same headwear.

Then look at what happens to those who may stray from the Left’s authoritarian plantation. Hollywood is supposedly all-inclusive of every viewpoint, except those who espouse Conservatarian, Pro-Liberty ideals.

This is the larger point inspired by a column by Dennis Prager in The Daily Wire were he first makes the point recurring point that it’s leftism — not liberalism – that is the problem here. He goes on to talk about Whatever The Left Touches It Ruins.  This is endemic to cases of a small cadre of Leftists deciding what is artistic or how the country’s history should be taught.

The only way to save Western civilization is to convince more people that leftism — not liberalism — is a nihilistic force. Quite literally, whatever the left touches it ruins.

So, here is a partial listing of the damage done by the left and the Democratic Party:

The most obvious — and, therefore, the one more and Americans can resonate with — is the near destruction of most American universities as places of learning.

When you attend an American university, you are taught to have contempt for America and its founders, to prefer socialism to capitalism, to divide human beings by race and ethnicity. You are taught to shut down those who differ with you, to not debate them. And you are taught to place feelings over reason — which is a guaranteed route to eventual evil.

So, too, one cannot watch late-night television if one desires to simply be entertained before drifting off to sleep. Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert and other hosts have changed late-night TV into left-night TV. Why merely be funny when you can use your monologues to advance your left-wing views?

If you treasure American and Western civilization, fighting the left — something all liberals and conservatives need to do — is the greatest good you can engage in at this time.

This is what happens when an ever-shrinking band of authoritarian Leftists decide that art should be scatological instead of uplifting. Or the example of small groups of ‘Comedians’ deciding that we have to be made to care about their ‘progressive’ agenda. Then there is the case of the corporate leadership of Citibank or Bank of America arbitrarily deciding the limitations of our basic human Liberty of self-preservation. [Note that Wells Fargo is bucking the trend standing up for Liberty] These are all examples of a Leftist ‘elite’ making decisions from their virtual mount Olympus for everyone else to follow.

The Take Away

While the Left likes to keep up the pretence of being ‘Democratic’ or ‘Liberal’ for that matter, they are neither. This is why we must do everything we can to expose the Left’s deceptions whenever possible.

Political warfare: Here’s why Trump should NOT fire Mueller, Rosenstein

Published

on

Whether you like it or not, Americans are in the midst of a civil war, a war between incompatible, opposing ideologies; each side vying for political power to wield over the entire country.

Unfortunately, when it comes to political war, Constitution-loving Americans have one tragic commonality: tactical naiveté.

This should come as no surprise. After all, we are comprised of those who appreciate law and order, of those who play by the rules, revere fair and just referees, and prize good sportsmanship. To a fault, we aim to play fair, projecting our own values upon the millions of our fellow countrymen.

Wake up!

It’s time to get real…

A PARASITIC ARMY:

The highly-motivated and heavily-funded Regressives – those who have secured political power on the left and who now pull the Democratic Party’s strings – are exceedingly organized, are remarkably skilled in the art of anticipatory synchronization of mass action, are adept at behavioral manipulation tactics, and are equipped with a fleet of public relations power players.

Like leaches, the Regressives have strategically acquired positions of power within their host animal – the American bureaucratic, governmental machine – and act only in their own ideological and political interests, even if that means the death of their weakened, unsuspecting host.

The Regressives play to win, fight dirty, and are not bound by scruples or honor codes. Their singular goal is to win at all costs.

Every action by these subversive schemers is carefully choreographed and implemented in service of their unholy cause. Case in point: the Mueller team’s recent raids of President Trump’s personal lawyer’s office, home, and hotel room.

THE DEVIL’S FIDDLE:

Like many on our side of America’s political civil war, I am alarmed by Special Counsel Mueller’s ever-expanding, “Russia probe,” especially the FBI raid upon the President’s personal lawyer.

Understandably, I’ve observed the chorus of calls for President Trump to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as well as the DOJ’s Rosenstein. An ever-growing number of people on our side has begun to put pressure on the President to take actions toward these ends.

 This is a mistake: the Regressives are playing us like a violin.

For months and months, our political opponents have been engaged in organized, subversive, provocative efforts in hopes of goading the President into firing Robert Mueller and/or Rosenstein. If President Trump were to in fact proceed in doing so, it would be a dream come true for the devious Democrats.

MoveOn.org has even been promoting a “Mueller Firing Pledge,” in cunningly strategic and proactive, yet sleazy anticipation.

Make no mistake. The raids on the President’s longtime, personal lawyer was a strategic move, judiciously designed to evoke a reactionary decision from the President.

Political war is war.

Deploying a Malevolent Militia:

Months ago, Democratic operatives established organizations, websites, and campaigns for precisely this occasion… should President Trump proceed in firing Robert Mueller. Thanks to their awe-worthy, disciplined efforts at recruitment, the Regressives have successfully enlisted an estimable 200,000 “troops.” All are on notice and battle-ready, prepared mass assembly within a matter of moments.

Their battle plan is simple and has been proven effective: utilize large numbers and pure showmanship to transform America’s streets into a stomping ground for the dissemination of propaganda.

Their slogan: “Nobody is above the law.”

Their battle: the “March for Truth.”

Back in December of 2017, after the President made an off the cuff remark about Robert Mueller, Newsweek published an article entitled, “If Trump Fires Mueller, More Than 170,000 Plan to Protest.” The Regressive enlistees were eagerly awaiting their call to arms, anxiously hoping that our President would fire Mueller: finally, this single act would validate their increasingly unhinged ideations of an America entrapped by a justice-obstructing, dictatorial villain.

The Newsweek article spoke of the well-organized, heroic plans and grandeur plans of the Regressives should Trump fire Robert Muller:

The plan to respond to a potential Mueller firing builds off previous protests since Trump took office, such as the Women’s March and the demonstrations at airports after the proposed travel ban. But the recent attacks on Mueller—including tweets by Trump as well as efforts by Republicans to investigate the FBI’s supposed anti-Trump bias—have added urgency to the “Nobody Is Above the Law” effort.

… dozens of protests are planned to address what organizers at groups including MoveOn, March For Truth and Indivisible call “a constitutional crisis for our country.”

Ever since the Cohen raids, the frivolous fleet of public relations orks has been eagerly spreading the word…

 

 

 

 

Thus, at this very moment, hordes of anti-Social inJustice Warriors, tweaking for their next crisis-induced dopamine fix, impatiently yearn for the psychological high that ideological validation brings.

Awaken! This is war.

Our opponents don’t play nice, and they don’t play by our rules. There is no fair play. Every move is plotted with delicate, sinister, unscrupulous care. We live in a dog eat dog world. The winner takes all.

The monsters lie in wait for their feast… just as a perched spider patiently anticipates an unsuspecting fly to become entrapped in her sticky, silk web.

President Trump must resist the Regressives’ carefully laid trap.

We must not feed the beasts.
