The hypocrisy of Trump, the GOP, and Evangelicals over Baby Alfie

Published

on

The year was 1982 when a baby boy who became known as Baby Doe—because giving the child a name would validate his life—was born in Bloomington, Indiana. The boy was born with two conditions: Down Syndrome and a correctable birth defect that made eating food orally impossible. Instead of having the surgery done, parents accepted the advice of an obstetrician who advised that the parents do nothing and thus allow the boy to die of dehydration or starvation after a few days. According to the doctor, being a Down Syndrome baby meant that the child’s life was not worth living.

“I believe there are things that are worse than having put [such] a child die, and one of them is that it might live.”

Though an older story, Baby Doe is an example of how America is guilty of murdering the innocent for the sake of convenience. Since Roe v. Wade, America has slaughtered over 60 million Baby Does while still in the womb. And while it’s tempting to judge another country for practicing infanticide, we will be equally judged by the ultimate judge for doing the same thing.

And it isn’t changing anytime soon.

Despite the fact that Planned Parenthood is America’s primary provider of baby-killing services, the budget deal passed by Donald Trump and the GOP provides approximately $1 billion to Planned Parenthood to finance the murder of approximately 600,000 unborn Baby Does during the next two years.

Let’s not forget the socialized medicine part of the equation either. The death panels in Great Britain decided to kill Baby Alfie, and under Obamacare, similar attitudes about who is worthy to receive health care are being formed. Despite promises to repeal Obamacare and stop America’s march toward socialized medicine, Trump and the GOP refused to repeal Obamacare, and they continue to look for ways to save it.

As we approach the midterm election, the Gang Of Phonies are resorting to and relying on the make-a-promise/break-a-promise/repeat playbook they always use when they seek votes and money they haven’t earned. And unfortunately, the Fellowship of Pharisees surrounding Trump and supporting the Republicans continue to play along as they exchange G-O-D for G-O-P.

Preaching the gospel of “cheap grace,” these heretics and charlatans continue to proclaim that Trump is God’s anointed as they defend his immoral behavior and boldly declare that he is “the most pro-life president ever.” Meanwhile, Jerry Falwell, Jr. is warning the body of Christ to reject “fake Republicans,” which translated simply means any Republican who refuses to support Trump unconditionally. Tax cuts and a seat at Trump’s table are paramount to pesky trivialities like abortion and infanticide of millions of Baby Does.

I’m often criticized by Trump-humpers and defenders of the lying liars in the GOP for demanding that our political leaders be ethical men and women of integrity. They say that my expectations are too high; that such “perfection” doesn’t exist. In reality, they are simply attempting to rationalize their decision to compromise their convictions and to defend their slothfulness as they perpetuate the binary lesser-of-two-evils lie that is Washington politics.

In the end, America continues doing the same thing over and over, allowing the status quo to continue while babies—born and unborn—are murdered for being the wrong sex, having Down Syndrome, being a burden on the healthcare system, and for simply being a disposable inconvenience to a woman’s “right” to her body.

Baby Alfie, like literally millions of babies before him, is the tragic story of how little we regard God’s greatest gift; the foundation of our existence and our God-given rights . . . LIFE!

While it’s right to be outraged over Alfie’s murder at the hands of doctors and authorities and to demand justice for his death, we need to realize that we are guilty of the same deeds and that we deserve and will likely receive the same judgment.

I leave you with these prophetic-sounding words from Thomas Jefferson as etched in stone at the Jefferson Memorial:

“God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are a gift of God? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever.”

Ken Ham on how science confirms the Bible

Ken Ham on how science confirms the Bible

One of my biggest pet peeves is the attempt by atheists to use “science” to disprove the Bible. It’s unfortunate on many levels, not the least of which being Pascal’s Wager, but the strangest part is how much of science must be ignored in order to make the claim a Biblical worldview runs counter to modern science.

Some may object to this topic being part of mostly political news site, but it’s been more widely covered in recent years by liberal sites attempting to paint the Biblical worldview in a negative light, so it’s good to give equal time to the counterarguments.

There are better videos than Ken Ham’s discussion on the topic, but few are more easily understood. It’s well worth the hour.

Bettie Cook Scott is a racist politician. And she’s a Democrat.

Bettie Cook Scott is a racist politician And shes a Democrat

Racism is owned by the Republican Party. That’s the narrative the press and their handlers, the Democratic Party, wants America to believe. Someone forgot to get that memo to Michigan state representative Bettie Cook Scott.

Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott on Asian opponent: ‘Don’t vote for the ching-chong!’

https://www.metrotimes.com/news-hits/archives/2018/08/16/detroit-rep-bettie-cook-scott-on-asian-opponent-dont-vote-for-the-ching-chongMore than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).

Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang” and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”

My Take

There are two important takeaways here. First is the hypocrisy surrounding Scott, a (formerly) rising star in the Michigan Democratic Party. If the comments she made were spoken by anyone other than a Democrat, the calls wouldn’t be for an apology. The press and social groups would be calling for her to step down and jump into a hole somewhere.

The second point is that in the real world, the one not seen through the lens of liberals and the media, racism exists everywhere. It is not owned by Republicans, conservatives, old people, white people, or any other classification. One can even make a valid argument that it’s no more prominent in the Republican Party than it is in the Democratic Party that supports groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Racism must be eliminated from society. That will never happen as long as so many people naively believe it only exists in the minds of certain people on the political right. It exists everywhere. Accept that and we can work to make it stop.

Our List of Demands for the Conservation of Liberty – Part II

Our List of Demands for the Conservation of Liberty Part II

Leftists incessantly issue lists of demands for the restriction of Liberty, It’s time to reverse the trend towards freedom.

This is our second part of our series of what we on the Pro-Liberty Right want for the preservation of Liberty. Part I is here.

6. The Left needs to stop trying to control private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. [aka ‘enhanced’ or ‘Universal’]

If there is one constant in the Liberty grabber universe, it’s that half of them are incessantly calling for gun confiscation while the rest deny they are calling for gun confiscation. They also love to parrot the line that it would be impossible to round-up everyone’s guns as a way of deflecting the issue. Except that those on the Pro-liberty side thought the same thing in the UK and Australia. Their Liberty grabber nightmare began with gun registration, under the solemn promise that it wouldn’t lead to gun confiscation. [Sound familiar?] Then of course at the next occasion of a serious crisis, this registration data was used for gun confiscation.

The fact is gun confiscation takes several precursor steps, the most critical being the assertion of government control over private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. Curiously enough, the Liberty grabbers tend to want language inserted into these laws mandating the reportage of lost or stolen firearms. Those types of rules are of primary importance only if the point of these measures is to turn them into a registration scheme.

7. The Liberty Grabber Left needs to stop pushing for even more controls on freedom.

It is also axiomatic that Leftists will exploit any opportunity to start ever-expansive controls over Liberty. The Left is a virtual fountainhead of new and more creative ways of clamping down on freedom. Having run out of new and improved ways of making it difficult, embarrassing and expensive to buy a firearm [While also lying about it at the same time] the Left has moved on to imposing controls over the purchase of ammunition. Then of course they also are making demands on how these are stored.

8. Stop attacking those who only wish to defend themselves.

There is nothing more loathsome than Leftists who excel at hurling insults at the country’s estimated 150 Million innocent gun owners. We’ve been labelled with almost everything from being Terrorists to baby killers for wanting nothing more than to be able to defend our families and ourselves.

Those who incessantly work overtime to demonize the innocent should keep one word in mind: Deterrence. The widespread ownership of weapons in most areas deters criminals since they don’t know who can fight back. This also explains why places with tight controls on Liberty tend to have higher crime rates. Curiously enough, for people who love the term ‘Commonsense’ they certainly don’t seem to well versed in it.

9. The Left needs to become educated about that which they want to control.

Granted, it might be too much to expect the Liberty Grabbers from knowing the difference between a direct impingement and gas piston actuation, but they should at least know the difference between a semi-auto and select fire. Nothing screams uninformed more than someone who confuses a clip with a magazine or some who uses them interchangeably in a claim that one can fire off 30 rounds in half a second.

Lack of knowedge is usually a negative in most cases, but in the realm of Liberty Control, the Leftists wear it as a badge of honour.

10. The Left needs to stop lying about guns.

We made these two separate items to prove a point. While some gaffes of the Liberty grabber elite are relatively harmless, there are those that are a danger to Liberty. It should go without saying that we live in an age in which the knowledge of the world is literally at one’s fingertips. There is no rational excuse for a lack of knowledge on the most rudimentary aspects of certain subjects. By the same token, there is no excuse for the propagation of deliberate false impressions and Lies particularly on the subject of self-defense.

One of the most infamous examples stems from the creation the phrase “Assault Weapon”:

The weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the public’s confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons—anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun—can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.

The Takeaway.

The nation’s Left has gone on for years demanding compromises on the part of the Pro-Liberty Right. It is time that they step up to the plate and show they can be ‘bi-partisan’ for once. These steps aren’t really that extraordinary, in fact they merely bolster Liberty. Some Leftists still purport to be Liberal, supporting these items would go a long way in showing that is truly the case.
