Mike Lee makes the case for more babies instead of the Green New Deal and population control

When Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) took to the Senate floor to discuss the Green New Deal, he made news. It wasn’t just his opposition to the plan. It was the way he framed it as a farcical abomination by using visuals that drew the ire of leftists around the nation.

But the most controversial image he used was that of little babies. This was a great offense to the progressives pushing for the Green New Deal because it called them out for their quietly insinuated assertion that we need to control the population in order to save the environment. The sad part is it’s “quiet” today. Not too long ago, leftists wouldn’t dare insinuate population control was the answer for fear of rebuke. Today, the rebuke isn’t universal. There are people who truly believe limiting the human population is the way to go.

Lee penned an article addressing the controversy behind his baby poster.

Climates change. It’s what they do. There is even evidence that humans have been affecting the climate since at least the Neolithic era. And these changes to the climate have always presented a challenge to humanity. Today is no different.

We have always survived, and even thrived, in new environments. Just look at California. Left in its natural state, the Los Angeles river basin can support maybe 100,000 people. Today, thanks to a creative web of dams, aqueducts, canals, and pipelines, there is enough water for over 10 million people to live there.

This is the creative, practical, life-affirming path that will help us solve the climate change challenge. Instead of looking to limit and even shrink humanity’s footprint on the world, we should be looking to improve and expand it.

And yes, this means more babies.

Human innovation guided by the will of God will help us prevent whatever catastrophe the political scientists in the climate change industry believe is about to happen. Limiting human population is not the answer.

Joy Villa on being called the ‘N-word’

Joy Villa on being called the 'N-word'

“The only time I’ve ever been called the N-word derogatorily is from other people of color or White liberals.”

– Joy Villa

Joy Villa made a huge splash when she came out as a Trump supporter. She’s an African-America in the entertainment industry, making her a rare conservative demographically. As a result, she has been relentlessly attacked for her views by those who believe she’s not on the proper side of the race debate.

But even if she weren’t a conservative, being a pro-life woman who gave up a child to adoption a decade ago should be enough to eliminate her from being a Democrat. The pro-abortion party has had many in its ranks declare there is no room for pro-life people in the Democratic Party. Villa wouldn’t be welcomed even if she denounced President Trump based solely on her adherence to the belief living human beings have rights at all stages.

I admire Villa’s courage and willingness to speak out. On Twitter, she’s a rockstar.

HHS Secretary Alex Azar on court ruling against abortion providers

HHS Secretary Alex Azar on court ruling against abortion providers

“For too long that money has been used to subsidize the provision of abortion contrary to statute. Congress has said that you cannot support abortion as a method of family planning. We’re just finally enforcing it.”

– Alex Azar

There’s a ton of backlash coming from the pro-abortion lobby regarding the ruling by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to allow the administration’s policy regarding Title X and how abortion providers are allowed to operate. The new policy, announced last year, would withdraw federal Title X funding from any medical facility that provides abortions, as well as abortion counseling or abortion referrals.

This is a pro-life administration, and while many will balk at the lack of action that has been synonymous with he Republican Party for years, this move by the administration solidifies its standing as a strong opponent of abortion providers.

Thomas Sowell on slavery

Thomas Sowell on slavery

“Slavery was an ugly, dirty business but people of virtually every race, color, and creed engaged in it on every inhabited continent. And the people they enslaved were also of virtually every race, color, and creed.”

– Thomas Sowell

As Congress holds hearings on the possibility of reparations for African-Americans whose ancestors were slaves, the lines are being drawn regarding what is appearing to be a major 2020 election issue. It isn’t just the Democratic candidates for president who are talking reparations. It’s Democrats preparing for their Capitol Hill races, whether current or future candidates.

Reparations are a pay-for-vote issue. This is only barely disputed by mainstream media who have tried to frame it as, “Yes, it’s an election ploy but that doesn’t make it wrong.”

Yes, it’s wrong. Today’s Americans are neither complicit nor affected by the sins of the past. We’re not talking about the oppression of parents or grandparents. We’re talking about generations past who no longer hold sway on the opportunities of African-Americans today. As Burgess Owens testified yesterday, there are plenty of people who have held back African-Americans, and most of them are Democrats.

Thomas Sowell’s quote acts as a reminder that slavery is not unique to white Americans or African-Americans of the distant past. It’s a stain on humanity as a whole. Reparations are not the solution. The solution can be seen today in the elevated prosperity and opportunity of those whose ancestors fought to give them. If anything, reparations are an insult to those who sacrificed so much for the free land we have today.
