The big news this morning is the fallout being generated by the Main Stream Media over the insults which were traded last night between Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump and Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton at the annual Al Smith Dinner, which is a fundraiser for Catholic Charities in New York.
Trump was appearing in front of a hostile audience, filled with the upper class Liberal muckety muck of New York Society.
Foxnews.com reports that
Republican nominee Donald Trump was jeered by attendees at a New York white-tie charity dinner Thursday night after his speech crossed from roast-style jokes into attacks on Hillary Clinton — though the Democratic nominee also took swipes, and both candidates got roasted by the master of ceremonies.
The first outburst from members of the audience at the annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner came when Trump said that Clinton was “so corrupt she got kicked off the Watergate Commission.”
The jeers continued when Trump referenced the Clinton campaign emails leaked by Wikileaks and claimed that the former secretary of state was “pretending not to hate Catholics,” an apparent reference to 2011 emails from a current Clinton campaign spokeswoman that mocked Catholics and evangelical Christians.
Some members of the audience appeared to be shouting at Timothy Cardinal Dolan, who was sitting between the candidates, and asking him to take the microphone from Trump, who quickly pivoted to remembrances of attending the event with his father.
The snot-nosed Liberal Elite of New York City did not get their wish. Cardinal Dolan, God bless him, probably wanted to verbally blister The Queen of Mean last night also, if propriety and his Position in the Arch Diocese did not preclude him from doing so.
Also, per Foxnews.com,
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado, (LifeSiteNews) – New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan called for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to disassociate herself from anti-Catholic statements made by her campaign chairman and said the remarks were “extraordinarily patronizing and insulting to Catholics.”
Asked about the anti-Catholic comments after speaking at The Bishop’s Respect Life Dinner on Monday night for the Diocese of Colorado Springs, Cardinal Dolan suggested that had other faith traditions been the target of the prejudiced remarks, there would have been a swift apology and absolute disavowal of them.
But as far as an apology from Clinton for the remarks demeaning Catholics, “Hasn’t happened yet,” Cardinal Dolan said.
Emails released last week by WikiLeaks showed Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta and Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri, both Catholics, in conversations with activists from two left-wing organizations. In the emails, Catholics were debased, with their beliefs being called “severely backwards.” Conservative Catholics also were accused of “an amazing bastardization of the faith,” and Rupert Murdoch was mocked for baptizing his children as Catholics in the River Jordan.
I am positive that Cardinal Dolan was also less than thrilled about Hillary’s stance on Partial Birth Abortion, which she proudly proclaimed at the Final Presidential Debate on Wednesday Night, as detailed yesterday in National Review Online…
Early on in last night’s debate, Hillary Clinton confirmed that, if elected, she will tow the party line on abortion: Predictably, she promised to uphold Roe v. Wade and guaranteed that Planned Parenthood would never be defunded under her administration. But when moderator Chris Wallace pressed her on the more extreme abortion stances she has taken in the past, she was unmoved. She defended her record, going so far as to argue, for a host of false reasons, that partial-birth abortion is an acceptable practice.
“You have been quoted as saying that the fetus has no constitutional rights,” Wallace said. “You also voted against a ban on late-term, partial-birth abortions. Why?”
“Because Roe v. Wade very clearly sets out that there can be regulations on abortion so long as the life and the health of the mother are taken into account,” Clinton replied, attempting to justify partial-birth abortion by invoking the mother’s well-being:
The kinds of cases that fall at the end of pregnancy are often the most heartbreaking, painful decisions for families to make. I have met with women who toward the end of their pregnancy get the worst news one could get, that their health is in jeopardy if they continue to carry to term or that something terrible has happened or just been discovered about the pregnancy.
Clinton’s defense of partial-birth abortion, the appalling practice whereby a baby is half delivered and then killed, is remarkably easy to dissemble. The Supreme Court ruled the federal ban on partial-birth abortion to be constitutional in the 2007 case Gonzales v. Carhart, affirming that the government has the power to regulate abortion despite Roe. Furthermore, Roe’s companion case, Doe v. Bolton, so expansively defined the “mother’s health” exception in Roe — it includes “physical, emotional, psychological, [and] familial” health, according to Doe — as to justify virtually any abortion, making it ludicrous to assert that the exception is a narrow, rarely invoked fiat that exists to protect the occasional partial-birth abortion.
The flawed case in favor of partial-birth also rests on the unbelievable illusion that partial-birth abortion is ever necessary to save a woman’s life. In fact, considerable research has shown that almost all partial-birth abortions are performed on healthy mothers and healthy children, most often in cases where a woman cannot make up her mind about whether or not to abort until late in the pregnancy. There is no “health condition” a mother could have that requires her to half deliver her child so it can be injected with poison that stops its heart from beating. There is no “condition” a child could have that would require it to be killed; unless, of course, Clinton means a “condition” such as Down syndrome or another disability that would, supposedly, make death preferable to a life of suffering.
Though Clinton’s rhetoric last night was not quite as far left as that of pro-abortion groups such as NARAL and Planned Parenthood — both of which want abortion-on-demand, federally funded and guaranteed to women regardless of their reasons — it belied her long history of support for their agenda. As Ramesh Ponnuru noted last week, Clinton has never stipulated that partial-birth abortion procedures should only be permitted in cases where the life of the mother is in grave danger. During her time in the Senate, she voted repeatedly to keep the practice legal, regardless of the extenuating circumstances. As president, it is nearly guaranteed that she would continue to protect late-term and partial-birth abortion, whether for a woman’s “health” or any other contrived reason.
By now, I am sure that you are saying,
Okay. The crazy old cracka’s off his meds again.
No, actually, I took them this morning.
But, I digress…
Here’s my point:
If Hillary Clinton does not have any compassion for a baby in their mother’s womb, what makes anybody believe that she gives a hoot ‘n holler about “Cletus and Bubba Sue”, down here in the Heartland, both working multiple jobs, in order to keep a roof over their heads and feed their children?
If you ask her that question, I am certain that she would answer.
Well…it takes a village.
As the history of America has proven, it takes a strong Family Unit and Divine Providence.
Just like her Former Boss, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm), Hillary Clinton through her actions and, now, her written words, has demonstrated repeatedly that she could care less about average Americans and the “Faith of Our Fathers”.
Like the current resident of the Oval Office, Hillary is her own “Higher Authority” and will do whatever that she personally believes is in the best interests of furthering her own personal political ideology, if, God forbid, she is elected on November 8th.
From the innocent unborn to rapidly disappearing American Middle Class, like “Cletus and Bubba Sue”, everyone will “pay” if Hillary Clinton wins the Presidential Election.
That must not happen.
Oh, and to the “We’re-Better-Than-You” snobbish New York Liberal Elite, who attended last night’s Al Smith Dinner, and were appalled that Donald Trump actually stood up to and traded insults with their “heroine”…
Put down the Grey Poupon, get your noses out of the air, and change your Depends.
There are only three weeks left before the election…and you ain’t seen nothin’, yet.
Until He Comes,
