Heather Higgins on how the media vilifies conservative women

Published

on

Heather Higgins knows all about being vilified as a conservative woman. As CEO of Independent Women’s Voice and chairman of its sister organization, Independent Women’s Forum, she’s been forced to live under the scrutiny of leftist mainstream media for years. Why? Because women are supposed to be progressive, pro-choice, and anti-conservative. If not, they’re an anomaly.

There are three techniques the media uses to prevent conservative women from having a voice. First, they use omission. By pretending like conservative women aren’t important or don’t exist, they keep their progressive icons front-and-center. Second, they use mocking. It’s sad that the side that allegedly fights misogyny is the one that so deftly uses it against conservative women. Third, they use labeling. If there’s one thing the left has mastered, it’s their ability to diminish conservative women by giving them stereotypical labels instead of acknowledging they have ideas of their own.

These challenges are common for any conservative woman who reaches a state of prominence. But as Higgins notes in this PragerU video, swimming upstream makes you stronger.

As conservative women fight to make their voices heard despite progressive groups belittling them, it’s imperative that we all support each other. We cannot succumb to the left’s silencing tactics.

How the left is redefining ‘quid pro quo’ to make it seem ominous

How the left is redefining quid pro quo to make it seem ominous

Did you know you engage in “quid pro quo” every day? As you drive away from Starbucks with a latte in hand, you’re leaving the scene of your latest quid pro quo. When you tell your kids you will ground them if they don’t do their homework, you’re committing quid pro quo. When cover someone’s shift at work so they’ll work for you Saturday night, that’s blatant quid pro quo.

Literally, it’s Latin for “something for something.” It’s an exchange. You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours. It’s part of literally every negotiation between any two countries ever. Without quid pro quo, there would be no treaties, no trade agreements, and wars would always go on indefinitely. It’s not a bad thing.

When something inappropriate is offered as part of quid pro quo dealings, that’s when politicians get into trouble. Accepting gifts from lobbyists in exchange for favorable votes is an example of illegal quid pro quo. Or, as House Democrats are trying to prove, if a President holds back aid to a foreign government unless they investigate a political foe so dirt can be found on them for an upcoming election, that is bad quid pro quo.

Yesterday, acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney famously told the press to “get over it” when it comes to quid pro quo. His words were careless, not because they weren’t true but because in the current political atmosphere, his acknowledgement there was quid pro quo over the ongoing 2016 election corruption investigation muddies the waters. Democrats and the media have painted the common action of quid pro quo between two governments as negative by conflating their impeachment inquiry topic – Ukraine investigating the Bidens – with the other aspect of the phone call between President Trump and President Zelensky, the CrowdStrike’s involvement with the DNC hack in 2016.

The first is truly impeachable. The second is part of everyday business between two countries. Mulvaney admitted to the second, which is neither illegal nor impeachable. But the media pounced by conflating the two.

Democrats and mainstream media are trying to redefine quid pro quo as a negative thing worthy of impeachment. They’re doing this by confusing the language behind the action with the topic of the impeachment inquiry. Unfortunately, they’re doing this to an American public that is easy to confuse and easier to distract.

We’re witnessing a disingenuous attempt to make Americans believe quid pro quo in and of itself is bad. This is ludicrous, or course, but they’ll do or say anything to make President Trump look bad.

Planned Parenthood’s lies: ‘Read our statistics: No federal funds pay for abortion’

Planned Parenthoods lies Read our statistics No federal funds pay for abortion

Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics

By Richard Ferguson

Regardless of whether a person supports or opposes a pre-born child’s right to life, we should at least be honest about the facts and our position regarding those facts.

Sadly, Ms. Cecile Richards, former President of Planned Parenthood, seems to prefer smoke, mirrors, and statistics, saying, “No federal funds pay for abortion services at Planned Parenthood.”

As preposterous as this claim may be, you likely cannot find one single major news media outlet calling the nation’s largest abortion provider on their statistical lie claiming that not one penny of the billion-plus taxpayer dollars they have to fund abortion were used to fund abortion.

Mark Twain popularized the quote about the different types of whoppers: Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics. Wikipedia cites that phrase as describing the persuasive power of numbers, particularly the use of statistics to bolster weak arguments.

Not only is the Planned Parenthood statistic weak. It’s a lie so outright outrageous it might make Satan’s red face blush. Think about it. If abortion clinics were regulated as much as cigarettes, they might have to change their name to Abortion Incorporated or more aptly “Planned Barrenhood.”

Yes, Planned Parenthood does provide other related services that do not directly kill innocent human life. They might check your blood pressure while selling you on having an abortion. Or they might take your temperature while selling you an abortion. But make no mistake about it. They have taken billions of dollars of your tax money to perform many millions of abortions.

  • Planned Parenthood murders over 320,000 developing fetal human beings each year in the United States. That is about 1/3 of the total.
  • That is about 887 killings each and every day
  • Or 37 murders of a developing fetal human being every hour.

In the time it takes you to read this article, another 10 killings of human life will have been performed at Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood to Spend $45M to Defeat Trump, Republicans.

If you vote Democrat in 2020 you are voting for the slaughter of 320,000 MORE innocent developing fetal human beings in 2021 and every year thereafter. Think about that dear people.

Here are Just Six of the Planned Parenthood Deceptions:

  1. Their Name: The name Planned Parenthood implies that they are there to assist with also becoming a parent like in helping with low sperm counts, or problems with fallopian tube issues doesn’t it. Well, they don’t. So, just what does Planned Parenthood deal in? STD’s, cancer screening, transgender therapy, contraception, sexual organ diseases.From my research, I found nothing about assistance in promoting healthy births of live children. It is all about anti-life, anti-baby, all the while they paint themselves as being so caring and compassionate. They seem cut from the same bloody cloth as Virginia Governor Ralph Northam Mayor whose infamous solution of what to do in the case of a live birth from a botched abortion, saying, “If a mother is in labor…the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and mother.” Right, as the baby is gasping for breath, the solution is to talk about it? We’ve heard that talk is cheap but now, sadly, life is even cheaper.
  2. Every Democrat candidate for president in 2020 raised their hand in favor of abortion murdering developing fetal human beings while still in a mother’s womb, the most sacred place for human life I can think of. This is pure Satanic hatred of the worst kind, robbing the life from the youngest and most innocent among us. Does anyone really want to vote Democrat in 2020 for this reason alone?
  3. The tax-funding received by Planned Parenthood is over $500 million each year from both state and federal sources. This is $1.5 million per day. This does NOT even include donations from private parties and corporations.
  4. The Hyde Amendment says there cannot be federal funding for abortions. But, 17 states can like California represent 40% of our population. You will never hear this from Planned Parenthood. This is a lie of omission. And a half-truth is still a whole lie.
  5. They hide the fact that YOUR TAX DOLLARS DO INDEED PAY FOR ABORTIONS DIRECTLY. THEY LIE THROUGH THEIR TEETH WHEN THEY SAY THEY DON’T. How does this work? The money from the government but they use fungibility statistics. This means the half a billion dollars cannot be used for abortions. BUT, other money from donors or states like California or corporations can pay for abortions. So, when that money comes in, they say federal money is not for abortions but say they use it for the other services they provide in number 1 on this list. So, they can say federal money does not pay for abortions when in fact it does.As Sue Thayer, former Planned Parenthood manager said, the money all goes into one big pot. There is no way to keep abortion money separate from other activities. So, the truth is, your money does pay for abortions. Planned Parenthood lies about this.
  6. They don’t talk about “Title X” where federal taxpayer money pays directly for “emergency contraception” or known as the “Morning After Pill”. This pill aborts a fertilized egg in a mother’s womb. It is an abortion pill that chemically murders the now newly developing fetal human being. But you will never hear them call it what it really is: abortion. Again, lying with statistics and verbiage.

So, remember in November, you have an informed vote: A vote for any of the Democratic candidates in 2020 is a vote for the death of 320,000 babies per year.

Mainstream media’s anti-Trump bias has no room left to escalate

Mainstream medias anti-Trump bias has no room left to escalate

There was a plan put in place shortly after President Trump won his election in 2016. Some believe it was never officially discussed, but instead morphed naturally through observations, winks, and nods. The more conspiracy-theory-minded crowd believes there were conversations and meetings held following the election between leaders of media, both in the mainstream and in big tech. Few believe it’s a coincidence that every mainstream media outlet other than Rupert Murdoch’s holdings is so adamantly anti-Trump by random chance. It’s coordinated, whether formally or as a result of media leaders seeing others walking in the same direction.

It’s working to some extent. The constant barrage of anti-Trump reporting had a huge impact on the 2018 election. It’s also affecting polls as a President with so many clear economic successes under his belt struggles to break 50% approval. But there’s a problem the media either didn’t foresee or refused to accept. Americans have grown fatigued by all of the unabashed hatred towards the President. They’re no longer shocked nor swayed by any given day’s batch of reports that the President is terrible for whatever new reason they’re peddling.

What’s worse for the media’s narrative is their reporting isn’t matching what people are seeing in their lives. Based solely on media reports, the world is ending, everyone’s starving, hillbilly gunmen with AR-15s are roaming the streets, women are dying in alleys because they’re being denied healthcare, and the LBGTQ community is under constant attack. The reality is more Americans are working than ever before, mass shootings are not common, women have unprecedented access to real healthcare, and the LGBTQ community is given superior status over most other Americans.

Of course, whether or not the world is ending soon is still up for debate. We’ll know more next November.

This anti-Trump narrative has been in progress since the day he was elected. Technically, it was happening before he was elected, but at that point it wasn’t quite as out in the open as after the election. They assumed Hillary Clinton would win, so they kept their rhetoric restrained. When she lost, they assumed they hadn’t done enough to help her. They vowed they’d help expedite President Trump’s removal from office, but they did so with the belief that he wouldn’t make it to the end of his first term. This is why they put all of their eggs in Robert Mueller’s basket. When that failed, they realized (for the first time, mind you) there was a chance President Trump would actually survive until election day.

That’s when everything changed. They realized they couldn’t count on Democrats, Robert Mueller, or missteps by the President to get him out of office, so they determined their best course of action was to assume he needed to be stopped at the ballot box while still hoping for impeachment or implosion. That’s where we are today. It’s why the bias has turned from giddily reporting his presidential demise to outright propaganda ahead of the election. CNN, NY Times, MSNBC, Washington Post, and all of the other media “influencers” on the left have made a conscious (and possibly coordinated) decision to plaster wall-to-wall coverage of anything that can be spun in a negative light against the President.

Now, they’ve peaked. They literally have no more room available for even more anti-Trump propaganda because that’s essentially all they report. Sure, they’ll work in the regular round of stories; they still have bills to pay so they need to report regular news as well. But the editorial strategy across the board is “stop Trump at all costs.”

This is a huge problem for them and the Democrats because of the aforementioned fatigue. Those who already hate the President aren’t going to be driven to fight him harder as a result of these reports. In fact, some are even disgusted by it, including CNN whistleblower Cary Poarch who joined the network as a Bernie Sanders supporting Democrat. The President’s avid supporters haven’t believed a word reported by mainstream media since 2016. That leaves those in the middle, whether that’s skeptical Republicans, open-minded Independents, or Democrats who are concerned about the policies being spouted by their party. How are they receiving the incessant negative reporting?

It’s within this group that mainstream media blew it. They’ve gone into fully unhinged mode way too early to properly manipulate those who are still making up their minds. They may poll or Tweet against the President now, but there’s an inherent sympathy among humans to not like it when someone is ganged up on as the media has been ganging up on President Trump. If the media had been honest (okay, MORE honest than they are now) about the President, then turned negative in the month or two leading up to the election, they probably could have swayed voters who are on the fence. By going full-blown anti-Trump so soon, they’re setting themselves up to push open-minded people towards Trump as the fatigue wears on them.

There’s no room for the media to get more negative. They’ve unleashed their ultimate strategy a year too soon.

There’s still a growing threat, though. Big tech is smarter than mainstream media. They understand the need to maintain an illusion of neutrality until closer to the election. The moves they’re making are more subtle, such as search engines highlighting anti-Trump stories in search results or algorithms quietly amplifying anti-Trump rhetoric. They’re a much bigger concern than mainstream media’s blustering reports. I’ll tackle the threat of biased big tech in the near future.

Mainstream media still has great power over the way people think, which is why it’s imperative that patriots support conservative outlets like NOQ Report. We are primarily crowdfunded and rely on donations to get the truth to the masses. The truth has much more power over elections when more people are exposed to it, which is why we regularly ask for your help.

The media has turned their anti-Trump propaganda up to 11. Over time, it will have the opposite effect as more people realize the reporting is biased and untrustworthy. We must continue bringing out the truth through election day and beyond.
