Milquetoasts Roberts and Kavanaugh Cuddling With the Dem Gals on the Supreme Court?

A ROBERTS-KAVANAUGH BROMANCE?

by Paul Mirengoff  at PowerLine:

“Conservatives’ takeover of Supreme Court stalled by John Roberts-Brett Kavanaugh bromance.” That’s the headline of a story in USA Today. The author explains:

Chief Justice John Roberts and the court’s newest member, Brett Kavanaugh, have voted in tandem on nearly every case that’s come before them since Kavanaugh joined the court in October. They’ve been more likely to side with the court’s liberal justices than its other conservatives.

The two justices, both alumni of the same District of Columbia-based federal appeals court, have split publicly only once in 25 official decisions. Their partnership has extended, though less reliably, to orders the court has issued on abortion funding, immigration and the death penalty in the six months since Kavanaugh’s bitter Senate confirmation battle ended in a 50-48 vote.

I discussed the Roberts-Kavanaugh alliance in connection with the Court’s unwillingness to hear cases regarding Planned Parenthood and, at least so far, to hear key cases regarding the rights of gays and transgender individuals. The three solidly conservative Justices — Thomas, Alito, and Gorsuch — all have voted to hear these cases, but it takes the vote of a fourth Justice to make this happen.

Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Kavanaugh have held out.

What is Kavanaugh’s up to? USA Today says that, having been accused of a 1980s sexual assault during his confirmation process, he “may just be laying low.”

The “laying low” theory is supported by rumors that Kavanaugh has been telling friends and associates that he intends to do just that for a year, given the controversy that surrounded his confirmation. Perhaps USA Today has heard the same rumors.

But although Kavanaugh is probably saying this, the “laying low” for a year theory isn’t fully persuasive. First, Kavanaugh is surely intelligent enough to realize that laying low for a year isn’t going to make his confirmation any less controversial or cause those who are convinced he’s evil to have a change of heart. (It’s also not clear why Kavanaugh would care about this. He has his lifetime appointment).

Second, at this point the controversial LGBT cases he and the Chief Justice keep ducking wouldn’t be heard this Term if the Court granted certiorari. Instead, they would be heard next Term, after the year of “laying low” has expired.

It looks to me like Kavanaugh may lay low for a good while — long enough to become very comfortable doing so.

Meanwhile, we seem to be stuck with a milquetoast Supreme Court. As USA Today puts it:

The chief justice and the newest justice together have provided ballast for a court in transition. Following Kavanaugh’s replacement of retired Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, Roberts has become the court’s swing vote, and Kavanaugh often appears to be his wingman.

“Ballast for a court in transition” is not what President Trump promised conservatives.

Ironically, during the presidential debates, Trump savaged Ted Cruz for supporting John Roberts’ nomination to the Supreme Court. The attack was unfair. Cruz had wanted Michael Luttig, for whom he clerked, to get the nomination that went to Roberts. Once Roberts was nominated, Cruz supported him, and there was no apparent reason not to. Roberts had always been a solid conservative. His decision upholding Obamacare was seven years in the future. He was not milquetoast in the interim.

By contrast, Kavanaugh had already written an opinion upholding Obamacare, and on grounds similar to the ones Roberts would later embrace, when Trump nominated him. Nor was Kavanaugh on the list of potential Supreme Court nominees Trump campaigned on.

Yet Trump nominated him anyway. As a result it looks like Trump is batting .500 on Supreme Court Justices. That’s the traditional Republican success rate, but it’s not good enough.

Perhaps we’ll see a better, more reliably version of Kavanaugh as time goes on. That’s not usually how it works, however. It usually works the other way around.

President to Veto Lefty Bill Funding Planned Parenthood Killings of Innocents

President Trump Promises to Veto Democrat Shutdown Bill That Funds Planned Parenthood

(Article sent by Mark Waldeland.)

But, in a Statement of Administrative Position for President Turmp, the White House said the president will veto the bill.

“If either H.R. 21 or H.J. Res. 1 were presented to the President, his advisors would recommend that he veto the bill,” it said.

The statement mentioned the pro-life concerns about the bill:

The Administration opposes passage of H.R. 21, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2019, providing appropriations for the fiscal year (FY) ending September 30, 2019, for the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Justice, Interior, State, Transportation, Treasury, and for other purposes. The Administration also opposes passage of H.J. Res. 1, providing appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through February 8, 2019, and for other purposes.

It includes $700 million more than requested for the United Nations, including restoring funding for the United Nations Population Fund. The bill would also undermine the President’s Mexico City Policy (Presidential Memorandum of January 23, 2017), which prohibits the funding of foreign nongovernmental organizations that promote or perform abortions.

The Feminist Dictatorship of the Triumph of Feelings

The Feminist Endgame

by David Solway   at  American Thinker:

Remember the wave of light bulb jokes popular some years ago?  One in particular captured the essence of feminism:

How many feminists does it take to change a light bulb?

THAT’S NOT FUNNY!

Modern feminism is characterized by a toxic mix of prudishness, self-importance, paranoia, groundless hatred, and epidemic humorlessness.  As a disease of sheer cray-cray offense-taking, culminating in hatred for half the human race, with a special emphasis on white males, feminism will not rest satisfied until men are taught to keep their knees together, their eyes down, and their mouths shut, eliminating confident alphas from the sexual equation or turning them into compliant betas.

Humor, or rather lack of same, is the key to understanding the feminist personality type and the species of derangement to which it is prone.  A sense of humor, including a penchant for wit and satire, is a sign of developed intelligence.  Being able to tell jokes and especially to get jokes, even at one’s expense, is a human quality whose absence betokens a closed and rigid sensibility.

Examples abound; I will consider a few of the most egregious.

In 2015, Nobel Laureate Sir Tim Hunt, the discover of cyclin, was forced to resign from his position as honorary professor at University College London’s Faculty of Life Sciences  and from the Royal Society for making a facetious and self-deprecating jest at the World Conference of Science Journalists in Seoul about relations between teachers and students.  “It’s strange,” he said, “that such a chauvinist monster like me has been asked to speak to women scientists.  Let me tell you about my trouble with girls.  Three things happen when they are in the lab: you fall in love with them, they fall in love with you, and when you criticize them they cry.”

All true, kind of funny, and no big deal, as I can attest from my own teaching experience and that of many of my friends.  Hunt is no charlatan like Bill Nye or Al Gore, but a genuine and brilliant scientist whose work on cancer cells has greatly benefited humanity.  No matter.  Abandoned by many of his friends and professional colleagues, Sir Tim is now pursuing his cancer research in Japan.  A joke told in a feminist environment is the kiss of death.

More recently, Simona Sharoni, a professor of gender studies at Merrimack College, famously took offense at King’s College professor Richard Ned Lebow for making an innocuous remark in an elevator they were riding.  The elevator stopped, someone asked which floor it was, and he replied with the “women’s lingerie” department.  Sharoni filed a grievance with the International Studies Association, of which they were both members.  Lebow, the 2014 recipient of the ISA’s distinguished scholar award, called her complaint “frivolous.”  Sharoni did not agree.  “As a survivor of sexual harassment in the academy,” she huffed, “I am quite shaken by this incident.”  Oblivious to the arrant nonsense of her deposition, the ISA, whose disciplinary committee found Lebow’s behavior “offensive and inappropriate,” instructed him to apologize.  An even “more serious violation,” said the committee’s director Mark Boyer, was “that you … termed her complaint ‘frivolous.'”

Three things immediately stand out from this ludicrous encounter: the flayed sensibilities of the feminists; the ubiquity of the beta syndrome; and the dreary priggishness of those who bridle at jokes, however lame.  As a woman in the same elevator confided to Sharoni, “I wonder if we should have told them that it is no longer acceptable to make these jokes.”  She might have said any jokes.

Or consider the sexual harassment scandal in which Canadian Conservative M.P. James Bezan made a feeble off-color joke during a photo op with Liberal M.P. Sherry Romanado and a third person at a fundraiser for Canadian war veterans.  What did Bezan say?  “This isn’t my idea of a threesome.”  Romanado found Bezan’s comments “unwanted,” “inappropriate,” and “humiliating.”  They “caused me great stress,” she went on, “and negatively affected my work environment.  People are afraid to live what I’ve had to live through.”  Yes, you read that right.

As for Bezan, he had to undergo an investigation conducted by the House of Commons, complete sensitivity training, and apologize repeatedly for his transgression.  A year later, Romanado, parliamentary secretary to the minister of Veterans Affairs, is still trembling from a wound as grievous, no doubt, as any suffered by the veterans for whose file she is responsible.  As they say, unbelievable!

The vast majority of such claims are undeniably trivial.  As my wife, Janice Fiamengo, observed at a panel discussion on the #MeToo sickness, given in Ottawa on December 8, 2017, “This is surely a phenomenon of mass hysteria, in which thousands of women claim to have been sexually terrorized by a range of behaviors that include lewd remarks, jokes, compliments, requests for dates, expressions of sexual interest, or fully clothed physical contact in public spaces.”

The phenomenon, she continued “is related to decades of feminist theorizing insisting that men are guilty when women say they are.  On that basis it is right to publicly shame men, to publish their names, to socially isolate them, to drum them out of an industry, to pressure businesses to fire them, to circulate their names on databases of ‘bad men’ … and to create extra-judicial tribunals to hear charges against them and to determine actions to be taken.”

All this is serious stuff, not only in its consequences, but in its psychic seriousness – that is, the vice of amateur souls and heavily indoctrinated natures who are strangers to nuance, complexity, irony, and the inherent absurdity of our histrionic productions.  Proponents of a sinister ideology, these agelasts do incalculable harm, not counting the great number of men they have transformed into spineless confederates of a misbegotten agenda.

The absence of a sense of humor is a dead giveaway of a narrow, psychologically limited, puerile, and saturnine personality-type, which makes it difficult for lively and intelligent people to converse; negotiate; or, obviously, exchange jokes with such attenuated individuals.  As Milan Kundera pointed out in The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, the tyrannical mind does not laugh.  When this lugubrious infirmity becomes a collective phenomenon, we know we are dealing with a social pathology whose effect is to warp and distort a culture almost, if not wholly, beyond recovery.  This is feminism’s endgame, and it looks bound to succeed.  You cannot reason with the humorless.

There is another light bulb joke that complements the one with which I began:

How many feminists does it take to change a light bulb?

It’s not the light bulb that needs to be changed.

Germany Has Always Had a EUROPE PROBLEM for 3,000 Years!

The Great German Meltdown

by Victor Davis Hanson     (article sent by Lisa Rich…)
Every 20 to 50 years in Germany, things start unraveling. Germans feel aggrieved. Ideas and movements gyrate wildly between far left and far right extremes. And the Germans finally find consensus in a sense of victimhood paradoxically expressed as national chauvinism. Germany’s neighbors in 1870, 1914, 1939—and increasingly in the present—usually bear the brunt of this national meltdown.
Germany is supposed to be the economic powerhouse of Europe, its financial leader, and its trusted and responsible political center. Often it plays those roles superbly. But recently, it’s been cracking up—in a way that is hauntingly familiar to its European neighbors. On mass immigration, it is beginning to terrify the nearby nations of Eastern Europe. On Brexit, it bullies the British. On finance, it alienates the southern Europeans. On Russia, it irks the Baltic States and makes the Scandinavians uneasy by doing business with the Russian energy interests. And on all matters American, it increasingly seems incensed.
Certainly, Germany has done some unbelievably strange things in the last ten years. In a fit of fear, after the Japanese Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor meltdown in 2011, and in a huff about climate change, Berlin more or less abruptly junked traditionally generated electrical power and opted for inefficient and unreliable “green” renewable wind and solar—despite the less than Mediterranean nature of its climate and warnings of the financial downside. The result is that electricity costs have climbed 50 percent in recent years and are among the most expensive in the developed world—and electricity itself is sometimes scarce. In response to shortfalls in power generation, the German energy industry for now is looking at solutions like coal-fired plants, buying nuclear-generated electricity from its neighbors, and cutting deals with Vladimir Putin for natural gas. In other words, Germany spiraled from the one extreme of green idealists to the other of dirty coal, while counting on others to export their electricity into Germany.
Immigration is similar. A bipolar Germany cannot just take in a limited and manageable number of genuine refugees, hope to assimilate them—and then keep quiet about its resulting sense of noblesse oblige. Instead, in a little over a year, Berlin enthusiastically opened its borders and accepted over a million migrants who were mostly unvetted and from the Middle East and North Africa, defending this radical policy with virtue sloganeering about German magnanimity (“we can do this”). Until recently, a mostly homogenous Germany had little experience with diversity, much less with assimilating and integrating mostly impoverished, male, Muslim immigrants. The result of these massive influxes from the Middle East has often been chaos. In an Orwellian sort of good-deed imperialism, Germany hectors its worried, smaller, and far more vulnerable European neighbors to embrace the nearly suicidal German model of open European borders.
Germany has always had a “Jewish Problem.” In the late nineteenth-century, German academics became obsessed with pseudo-research about eugenics and racial purity—which often led to talk of both Aryan purity and crass anti-Semitism that played out in the real world with disastrous results during the Holocaust. After World War II, Germany tried to make amends through introspection, some reparations, and the subsidized sales of military supplies to Israel. Yet Germany seems to once again be embracing anti-Semitism quite aside from its fierce opposition to Israel. Dieter Graumann, the president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, has warned of the present climate: “These are the worst times since the Nazi era.
On the streets, you hear things like ‘the Jews should be gassed,’ ‘the Jews should be burned.’ We haven’t had that in Germany for decades. Anyone saying those slogans isn’t criticizing Israeli politics, it’s just pure hatred against Jews: nothing else.”
In response to the growing hatred, Felix Klein, Germany’s newly appointed special envoy entrusted by the Merkel government with addressing the nation’s growing anti-Semitism—much of it the result of the influx of Muslims—recently shrugged it off, simply pointing out that more and more Jews are leaving Germany: “It is quite understandable that those who are scared for the safety of their children would consider leaving.”
During the recent decade of tension between North and South European Union nations, we saw a similar trend play itself out—a sort of self-righteous veneer plastered over cold, hard power-mongering. Germany knew its continental mercantile system hinged on easy credit to weak EU members on the Mediterranean to buy German imports on credit. When they predictably defaulted on German loans, “shocked” German bankers and pension holders understandably went ballistic. They offered self-righteous lectures on Teutonic thrift and parsimony—but only years after leveraged BMWs and Mercedes had poured into far poorer Athens and Rome.
Militarily, the radical about-faces are the same. Germany has gone from spiked helmets to Weimar pacifism, from the Waffen SS to Potemkin divisions and gossamer air wings. Berlin never quite seems to realize that had it just followed the classical golden mean—strong armed forces under the auspices of Democratic government—it would have neither scared its neighbors nor required 70 years of subsidized postwar defense dependence.
Despite America’s role in the Cold War protecting West Germany and later unifying East and West, Germans now conveniently poll as among the most anti-American people in the EU. And Germany polls the most anti-Trump, which is not surprising given Trump’s harangues about fairer NATO defense spending and trade deficits, both implicit denunciations of Germany’s mercantile trade policies, and virtual disarmament and reliance on the U.S. military.
Some historical context is also necessary. Germans often inexplicably fail to grasp that Americans did not plan on landing in France in either 1917 or 1944—or staying on in Germany until 2018 (there are currently 35,000 U.S. troops still stationed in the country). Much of American foreign policy over the 75 years between 1917 and the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 was predicated on either defending Germany’s neighbors from German aggression, or defending Germany itself from Russian invasion. Trump’s election showed that most Americans probably want those U.S. troops out of Germany (and a lot of other places too) as much as Germans now claim to wish them gone. Good distance may make good NATO friends.
For all of its growing animus toward America, Germany has still not met its promised 2 percent expenditures of GDP on defense according to NATO’s requirements. Yet it still runs up huge trade deficits with the United States ($65 billion a year). Germany also enjoys the world’s largest account surplus at $287 billion—warping international trade as the country discourages imports and calibrates its economy mostly for export. The Euro is, by Berlin’s design, still undervalued, and allows the Germans a commercial competitiveness likely impossible were they still to use the Deutsche Mark.
Amid the crises in the Middle East, Iran, North Korea, Russia, and China, most Westerners assumed that Germany, given its size and dynamic economy, would continue to be a model Western leader and a calming force in a historically unstable Europe. Instead, it seems to be entering a dangerous phase when at the zenith of its wealth and power, it nevertheless pouts and blames. Berlin feels snookered by Southern Europeans, ignored by a departing United Kingdom, not given sufficient deference by Eastern Europeans, and resentful of America.
In a perfect world, Germany would address its frustrations through introspection. After all, no one forced Berlin to take in over a million problematic refugees from the Middle East. No one forced it to export goods on easy credit to leveraged buyers who visibly lived far above their means. No one forced it to renege on its NATO defense promises and responsibilities. No one forced it to have a long and catastrophic history with the Jewish people. And no one forces it to expect perpetual U.S. military protection while continually setting record trade surpluses.
Despite the long postwar history of U.S.-German friendship, and despite Germany’s financial and economic power, the country is becoming psychologically isolated, if not unhinged. While Germans broadcast their anti-Americanism, they seem oblivious that Americans may likewise be tiring of German petulance.
If we are entering yet another historical period of dangerous German resentment, the ensuing result will bode ill for everyone involved……”

ghr….    Remember the Hessians?
…..Thank you, Mr.  Davis Hanson for the above exercise regarding recent European history of nations, empires, and tribes attempting to keep the Germanics starving in the woods.
No one learns Latin any more.   What a pity!   One learned so much about the Roman Empire…..remember, the 1,000 year one that occupied the “World” south of the Alps throughout the Mediterranean for all those years….always warring against the Germanics who were so curious and jealous of the warm weather and wealth the Romans enjoyed.   It’s human nature….  And let’s not forget the Tatars swarming in from Mongolia all of those centuries gone by!
Remember the Hessians?   Probably not!   Americans don’t know anything history beyond Barack Hussein Obama and his fascists any more.    For three hundred years the French, and then the Russians, those Slavs from the endless East began to encircle and enslave whomever…..the Germans, that is…..stood in their expansion way!   EVEN THE TURKS SPENT CENTURIES hunting to conquer Germanic Vienna and the “Holy Roman Empire!”   (The Brits bought and brought Germans from Hess and ‘environs’  to help the rule the WAVES and BEYOND for decades!

3,700 Human Unborn Murdered Every Day in DoGood USA?!

One of Democrats’ last outspoken pro-life voices passes away

(Article sent by Mark Waldeland.)

ATLANTA, Georgia, March 28, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Public memorial services are in progress for former Georgia Governor and Senator Zell Miller, one of the Democratic Party’s last vocal pro-lifers.

Miller died Friday at age 86, following a battle with Parkinson’s disease. He passed away at home, surrounded by family.

The Miller Institute Foundation announced that services began Monday with a public Memorial on the campus of Young Harris College, continued Tuesday with a Celebration of Life Service at Peachtree Road United Methodist Church, and concluded on Wednesday with a state funeral at the Georgia Capitol rotunda.

“The ranks of socially conservative Democrats are shrinking – and no one was probably more grieved by that than former Georgia senator and Governor Zell Miller,” Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said in a statement. “A passionate, God-fearing and God-loving pro-lifer, Zell was often the lone voice of reason in a party that was starting to lose its way.”

A former Marine, history and political science professor at Young Harris College, and state senator who chaired Democrat Walter Mondale’s 1984 presidential campaign in Georgia, Miller won the governorship of Georgia in 1990, and won reelection in 1994. His successor, Roy Barnes, appointed Miller to fill a Senate vacancy in July 2000, and in November he won the special election to serve the remainder of that term. He declined to run for a second term.

Miller was a popular governor who left that office with an 85% approval rating, but he is most well known nationally for crossing the aisle to support Republican President George W. Bush in 2004.

Miller “was an example of service before self, country before party, principle before poll,” Bush said in a statement. “His strong spirit benefited the people of Georgia and the United States and will be sorely missed.”

He also dissented from his party on a number of issues, including abortion. During a 2007 banquet for the Sav-A-Life Care Center, Miller named abortion as the root cause of several of the United States’ social ills.

“If those 45 million children had lived, today they would be defending our country, they would be filling our jobs, they would be paying into Social Security,” he said. “Still, we watch as 3,700 babies are killed every single day in America. It is unbelievable that a nation under God would allow this.”

In his 2003 book A National Party No More, Miller wrote that he first started questioning his past support for legal abortion with the arrival of his great-grandchildren.

“Even though their young parents struggle tremendously to take care of them,” he said, “I know how richly blessed we are that they were not four of the 42 million who have been aborted over the past thirty years.” He went on to criticize the hypocrisy of abortion supporters who opposed the death penalty, compare abortion-on-demand to the legality of slavery, and express frustration at the increasing pro-life leanings of the younger generation.

“What could be more arrogant than to believe one has the right to designate a life not worth living?” Miller asked.

 

[Zell Miller] also dissented from his party on a number of issues, including abortion. During a 2007 banquet for the Sav-A-Life Care Center, Miller named abortion as the root cause of several of the United States’ social ills.

Obama’s Planned Parenthood Game in Trouble?

Planned Parenthood is in Deep Trouble With the Law. This Could Be a Turning Point.

. . . President Barack Obama’s aggressively pro-abortion administration put the “bully” in “bully pulpit.” Under Obama, the Justice Department became a tool to harass and intimidate pro-life advocates, labeling them domestic terrorists alongside groups like the Ku Klux Klan.

Instead of investigating Planned Parenthood for the shocking, potentially illegal practices exposed in the videos, pro-abortion Attorney General Loretta Lynch decided to investigate the whistleblowers.

The Obama administration also actively interfered with state efforts to defund Planned Parenthood. KansasTennesseeIndianaTexasNew HampshireNew Jersey, North Carolina — all these states tried to get taxpayers out of the abortion industry, only to have the federal government bypass local officials to directly award lucrative contracts to Planned Parenthood or threaten to withhold federal Medicaid funds unless they kept tax dollars flowing.

As one last parting gift, during Obama’s final weeks in office, his administration issued an order banning states from defunding Planned Parenthood under Title X, which took effect two days before President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Through it all, Obama’s court appointees have generally been reliable backers of abortion. One Obama appointee even compared an abortion to a tonsillectomy in a recent case that would have created new “rights” to abortion on demand for illegal immigrants.

But there’s a new sheriff in Washington now, and a palpable sense of terror is gripping Planned Parenthood and its camp. Without their defender-in-chief or the courts to bail them out, they are finally being held accountable.

Trump has busily set about undoing his predecessor’s destructive pro-abortion legacy. He has filled his Cabinet with pro-life officials, and has filled court vacancies with outstanding judges like Neil Gorsuch who faithfully interpret the Constitution.

Right away, Trump signed legislation (H.J. Res. 43) rolling back Obama’s parting gift to the abortion industry — something that, on a personal note, I was proud to witness in the Oval Office.

Trump’s strong commitment to pro-life policies has helped embolden state governors and legislatures.

Trump’s strong commitment to pro-life policies has helped embolden state governors and legislatures. Texas has now applied to reclaim the federal funding it was denied under the last administration. South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster in August successfully defunded Planned Parenthood and requested a waiver from the Trump administration so that the state can do the same with Medicaid, which is where the abortion business gets most of its taxpayer funding.

The next step is for the Trump administration to issue new guidance to the states restoring their freedom to prioritize Medicaid funds the way they believe will best serve their citizens. The administration must be prepared to defend that policy vigorously should the case go to the Supreme Court.

The pro-life majorities in both houses of Congress should also fulfill their promise to redirect half a billion dollars in annual taxpayer funding away from Planned Parenthood using budget reconciliation, where they have the best chance of succeeding.

Sometimes justice is a long time coming, but as two of our nation’s greatest thinkers — Thomas Jefferson and Martin Luther King, Jr. — pointed out, it “cannot sleep forever” and “the arc of the moral universe … bends toward justice.”

There are good reasons to hope that for America’s abortion giant, justice is right around the corner.”

Obama’s Criminal Enterprise Collapsing?

Eight years of Obama crimes have passed, at last.   The nation is in turmoil.  It was allowed, encouraged by Obama Washington  to be invaded for electoral purposes by establishing  sanctuary city foreign settlements protected from Federal law.

America has become  more criminal, more ignorant,  far less educated, more violent,  more on the dole with countless more illegal ‘voters’ to feed and clothe, who collectively have no or little  interest in becoming Americans with traditional American values.   They are to be served…..Move over and make room, you born Americans!  Democrats need votes to secure their leftist fascist empire.

Our American educational systems, K through college, the country’s  communications industries,  urban black plantation racists,  and feminists of all sexes, shapes, colors and sizes, even leftist controlled urban courts     united with sanctuary city illegals to tear the country apart by ignoring, opposing  its Constitutional foundations.   These leftist foreigners and programmed unAmerican Democrats  have destroyed  the once honorable Democratic  Party of President John F. Kennedy, at least for the time being, having  been temporarily  neutralized by Republican, Donald J. Trump’s remarkable victory this past November.

Our United States had never endured a criminal presidency until Communist-Socialist Barack Obama oiled his way into the White House with his suave language, arrogance, his protected  color and control of the nation’s mass media.

No one seemed to collect the courage to investigate his Communist ideological  and racist background in his college and Jeremiah Wright Church years, especially the hate America crowds he cherished, the twentieth century American  socialist rabble rouser, Saul Alinsky,  he adored, emulated,  and ‘adopted’ as himself.   No one seems to want to remember the Stalinist Soviet-like political ditties composed for urban black children to memorize and sing during the early Obama government years as if they lived along the Neva.

No one, especially in the press, wanted to be smeared  a “RACIST” in the New York Times and Washington Post by in any way criticizing the leftist, racist, Chicago charlatan democrat.

No one including Republicans dared investigate the spying, the political racist manipulating, protecting 20,000,000 illegal immigrants to become Obamaling voters forever, protected and financed in these sanctuaries urban zones paid  at  taxpayers’ expense!

HAS THE FASCIST STENCH OF THE  OBAMA ERA SWAMP FINALLY COME TO BE EXPOSED?    (Please read the following!)

America’s Murder Industry…Planned Parenthood

Here’s 5 things to say when discussing Planned Parenthood

 

1. Planned Parenthood is America’s biggest abortion chain, committing over 34 percent of abortions in the United States. According to its own 2014-2015 annual report, the corporation committed 323,999 abortions last year —that’s 887 abortions a day, or one abortion every 97 seconds.

2. Planned Parenthood lies about the scope of health care services it provides. The abortion giant only does 0.97 percent of Pap smears and 1.8 percent of breast exams in the United States. In contrast, it commits over 34 percent of abortions in America. Planned Parenthood does not offer any mammograms, which President and CEO Cecile Richards was forced to admit to before Congress, contrary to previous claims. In addition, prenatal care is virtually non-existent at facilities, as are ultrasounds for pregnant women who want to keep their babies.
