House Passes Bill to Protect Supreme Court Justices

A bill to provide the same protection for Supreme Court Justices that some Legislative and Executive Branch Members already receive, which passed unanimously in the Senate, was voted on in the House of Representatives yesterday and passed 396 – 27.

All those who voted “no” on the Supreme Court Police Parity Act on Tuesday were Democrats (of couse). They are:

“Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Ohio

Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y.

Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo.

Rep. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas

Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y.

Rep. Chuy Garcia, D-Ill.

Rep. Sylvia Garcia, D-Texas

Rep. Joshua Gottheimer, D-N.J.

Rep. Raúl Grijalva, D-Ariz.

Rep. Steven Horsford, D-Nev.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash.

Rep. Brenda Lawrence, D-Mich.

Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif.

Rep. Tom Malinowski, D-N.J.

Rep. Marie Newman, D-Ill.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J.

Rep. Donald Payne, D-N.J.

Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.

Rep. Mikie Sherrill, D-N.J.

Rep. Albio Sires, D-N.J.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.

Rep. Norma Torres, D-Calif.,

Rep. Nydia Velazquez, D-N.Y.

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.

As you can read, the members of The Squad all voted to allow the Conservative Justices of the Supreme Court to continue being harassed and threatened.

Of course, it wasn’t just the members of The Squad. Loudmouth racist Maxine Waters voted against the bill, as well.

I’m not shocked at the results.

If the other Democrats in the House of Representatives voted along with the Far Left Members, their carefully crafted lies about being “Moderates” would have blown up in their faces.

I have some news for them, they already have.

As Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich remarked on Fox and Friends the other day,

“There are no Moderate Democrats .”

If you don’t think that Democrat donors like George Soros are funding these protests in front of the Conservative Justices homes, you haven’t been paying attention.

These are paid protesters, just like all of those New Bolsheviks who harassed Donald Trump his entire presidency and who tried to bust down the doors at the Kavanagh Hearings,

There always have been some people who would gladly sell their souls to the Golden Calf.

What we are witnessing, in the Democrat Party, are Americans who have forgotten all of the sacrifices that the generations before them made, to build this country into a great place to live.

They have bought all the lies of Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky.

And, they believe, as the worshippers of Molech in the Old Testament believed, that their lives will be made more fulfilling by the sacrifice of their young.

But, I digress…

Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats in the House of Representatives are fooling no one with voting to pass this bill.

Neither are they fooling anyone with the Dog and Pony Show they’re conducting concerning what happened on January 6th, 2021.

Americans don’t care.

We’re too busy trying to survive this disaster of a presidency.

Come on, November!

Pelosi Pledges to Bring Bill to House Floor to Strike Down States’ Abortion Restrictions After SCOTUS Allows Texas “Heartbeat Law” to Go Into Effect

 

See the source image

“I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.” – President Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Thursday pledged to bring a bill codifying the Supreme Court abortion decision Roe v. Wade to the House floor in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to allow a Texas abortion law to go into effect.

“When we go back to Washington, we will be putting Roe v. Wade codification on the floor of the House, to make sure that women everywhere have access to the reproductive health that they need,” Pelosi said in a news conference.

The Texas law, signed by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott in May, prohibits abortions once medical professionals can detect cardiac activity, usually around six weeks and before many women know they’re pregnant.

The court voted 5-4 to deny an emergency appeal from abortion providers and others to sideline the law while appeals are made, allowing the law to go into effect Wednesday. The judges also suggested that their order likely isn’t the last word on whether the law can stand.

Pelosi announced that the House would vote on a bill sponsored by Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif., H.B. 3755, the Women’s Health Protection Act. The bill aims “to protect a person’s ability to determine whether to continue or end a pregnancy, and to protect a health care provider’s ability to provide abortion services.”

The law would strike down current state restrictions on abortion and prevent states from imposing new restrictions on abortion, which pro-life advocates claim involves the killing of an unborn baby, except in limited circumstances.

Pro-life advocates celebrated the court’s ruling.

“March for Life celebrates the Supreme Court’s decision to allow – for now – the state of Texas to protect babies who have a detectable heartbeat. Americans, through their elected representatives, deserve to be able to enact laws that reflect their own values and compassion for our most vulnerable citizens,” Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life, said in a statement.

“The Supreme Court’s ruling allows Texas to protect unborn babies with beating hearts while litigation continues,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said in a statement. “The Texas legislature, acting on the will of the people, debated and passed this law with the very simple goal of protecting unborn children with beating hearts from death in the womb. This is how democracy works.”

Dannenfelser condemned H.B. 3755, claiming that the bill would “permanently stifle American debate on abortion.”

“Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi want to permanently stifle American debate on abortion and instead impose a regime of abortion on demand, up until the moment of birth, paid for by the taxpayer,” Dannenfelser wrote in a statement after Pelosi’s announcement. “The deceptively named ‘Women’s Health Protection Act’ should really be called the ‘National Abortion on Demand Act.’ Existing laws at risk if the legislation passes include limits on late-term abortions, waiting periods, informed consent laws, and limits on discriminatory abortions, and many others.”

President Biden announced that he is launching a “whole-of-government effort to respond to this decision, looking specifically to the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Justice to see what steps the Federal Government can take to ensure that women in Texas have access to safe and legal abortions as protected by Roe, and what legal tools we have to insulate women and providers from the impact of Texas’ bizarre scheme of outsourced enforcement to private parties.”

Some Democrats have renewed their push to pack the Supreme Court in the wake of the ruling.

“Republicans promised to overturn Roe v Wade, and they have. Democrats can either abolish the filibuster and expand the court, or do nothing as millions of peoples’ bodies, rights, and lives are sacrificed for far-right minority rule,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., wrote on Twitter.

Democrat-controlled state legislatures have passed their own attempts to codify Roe v. Wade should the conservative-majority Supreme Court strike down the ruling. The New York version not only codified abortion but removed protections for babies in the womb, even those wanted by their mothers. It struck down laws treating the death of an unborn baby as a homicide.

If you are surprised that Pelosi and Company are attempting to overrule Texas’ “Heartbeat Law” in favor of continuing the practice of killing the unborn, then you have not been paying attention to “The Party of Death”.

Prior to 1973, abortions were allowed in some states but restricted or almost banned in others. Every state legislature made their own decision on whether to allow abortions and under what circumstances.  There was no Federal Law in regards to abortion.   Then, in 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court gave us Roe v. Wade. It declared a Texas anti-abortion statute unconstitutional and, in doing so, affected abortion laws in many other states.

For any low  information voters who might be reading, I present the following summary:

Jane Roe was an unmarried and pregnant Texas resident in 1970. Texas law made it a felony to abort a fetus unless “on medical advice for the purpose of saving the life of the mother.” Roe filed suit against Wade, the district attorney of Dallas County, contesting the statue on the grounds that it violated the guarantee of personal liberty and the right to privacy implicitly guaranteed in the First, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amendments. In deciding for Roe, the Supreme Court invalidated any state laws that prohibited first trimester abortions.

“We … acknowledge our awareness of the sensitive and emotional nature of the abortion controversy, of the vigorous opposing views, even among physicians, and of the deep and seemingly absolute convictions that the subject inspires.” — Justice Blackmun (1973), majority opinion in Roe v. Wade

When you talk to Far Left Democrats about this stopping of a beating heart, they will  claim that, a human fetus is “just a clump of cells”. 

From the scientific perspective, Dr. Carlo Bellieni, in his book “Dawn of the I: Pain, Memory, Desire, Dream of the Fetus,” says:

As soon as it is born, the child shows in a scientifically demonstrable way that it recognizes its mother’s voice and distinguishes it from that of a stranger. Where has he learned that voice other than in the maternal womb?

There are also direct proofs. For example, we register how the movements and cardiac frequency of the fetus vary if we transmit unexpected sounds through the uterine wall. And we see that at first the fetus is startled, then it gets used to it, just like we do when we hear something that does not interest us.

In fact, the scientific evidence is immense. We cannot understand how it can be thought that it becomes a person at a certain point, perhaps when coming out of the uterus.

From the physical point of view, at the birth very little really changes: Air enters the lungs, the arrival of blood from the placenta is interrupted, the type of circulation of blood in the heart changes, and not much more.

As I often say, only blind faith in magic arts or some strange divinity can lead one to think that there is a “human” quality leap at a given moment — certainly not science.

Several years ago, then-President Obama, who was brushing away tears on Tuesday Morning on behalf of limiting the Second Amendment Rights of American Citizens, said the following,

Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesn’t make sense to not give them information.

My question for Speaker Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat Elite, is:

When do children stop being a “punishment” and start being precious lives to shed tears over?

Is it simply a matter of “Political Expediency”?

Welcome to Obamacare…and Government-Funded Hedonism

obamadoctorToday is October 1st. Welcome, Americans to the beginning of Obamacare…and the beginning of the New Soviet Union…or, is it the New Roman Empire?

Obama once remarked that we were no longer a Christian Nation. …and, with this massive failure in the making, he’s making sure that his statement is made true.

The Washington Times reports

The Office of Personnel Management ruled Monday that members of Congress and their staffs will be able to buy health care plans that pay for abortions, even though the premiums are funded largely by taxpayer money — a move that conservatives say breaks federal law on abortion funding.

Under the terms of Obamacare, lawmakers and their aides are required to ditch their government-sponsored plans and buy insurance on state-based health care exchanges, though unlike most people on the exchanges, the staffers and members will have most of the costs of their premiums paid by their employer — in this case, taxpayers.

Federal law generally prevents taxpayer money from being used to pay for abortions, but OPM said the health care plans offered through the exchange were private. The agency also said it will make sure the money is segregated so that the portion that pays for abortions comes out of the employees’ own contributions, which amounts to about a quarter of the premiums.

“While plans with such coverage may be offered on an Exchange, OPM can and will take appropriate administrative steps to ensure that the cost of any such coverage purchased by a member of Congress or a congressional staffer from a designated [exchange] is accounted for and paid by the individual rather than from the government contribution, consistent with the general prohibition on federal funds being used for this purpose,” OPM said in its ruling.

Rep. Christopher H. Smith, New Jersey Republican, said OPM is violating a law he wrote in 1983 that prohibits OPM from paying any expenses to administer plans that cover abortion, except in cases of rape or incest or when the mother’s life is in danger.

“You can’t break the law, Mr. President, and just issue a final rule as if somehow you’re comporting with the law,” Mr. Smith told The Washington Times. “We don’t want to subsidize abortion on demand, and the public is absolutely with us.”

Back on June 4th of this year, examiner.com told us that

…Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said that Obamacare will place a special focus on members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community because “for too long…[they] were pushed to the side,” Paul Bedard reported at the Washington Examiner.

“LGBT individuals have faced limited access to health care and insurance. They have been less likely to get the preventive care they need to stay healthy, they have higher rates of tobacco use, and they are often at increased risk for mental health illness,” she said.

To counter this, the administration is drawing attention to new benefits under Obamacare targeted to gays, Bedard said, and will add gender status to health surveys and questionnaires critical in determining services under Obamacare.

“Like all Americans, LGBT Americans deserve respectful health care providers and the security of accessible, affordable health care that meets their needs,” Sebelius said.

The announcement coincides with Obama’s proclamation of June as LGBT Pride Month.

“As we observe LGBT Pride Month, I am pleased to say that the Department of Health and Human Services continues working hard to make this a reality for the LGBT community,” she added.

Bedard posted the key benefits gays and lesbians will receive under Obamacare, according to Sebelius:

  • “Insurers can no longer impose lifetime dollar limits on health insurance coverage, and annual limits will be phased out in 2014. This is particularly important for people with cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other chronic diseases requiring comprehensive, long-term care.”
  • “Starting in 2014, insurers cannot deny coverage or charge higher rates based on a pre-existing condition or because an individual is lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.”
  • “Insurers generally must cover such vital preventive services as HIV screening, vaccinations, depression screening, contraception, intimate-partner violence screening, and annual well-woman visits, at no out-of-pocket charge.”
  • “Healthcare.gov includes a health plan finder tool that allows consumers shopping for health insurance to filter for plans offering coverage for domestic and same-sex partners.”

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. – John Adams, Second President of the United States of America

Several times on the internet, I have attempted to engage in discussion with Kool-Aid drinking Liberals who insist that the Godless Socialization of American’s Healthcare System, the greatest in the world, is exactly what Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, would do.

I refute that, by carefully explaining to them  that no, Christ was not the author of “social justice”, sinful man was. Christ, in fact, said the following:

“For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you want, you can do good for them. But, you will not always have me.” – Mark 14:7( ESV)

Yes, we are called upon to show Christian Compassion, through individual good works, or charity in action, through the organized “Body of Christ” (America’s churches).

I even had a Liberal tell me that Mosaic Law justified welfare, as it was the world’s first Welfare System.

First, I explained to the ill-informed young man that Christians are not under Mosaic Law, we are covered by the blood of Christ, and are under the New Covenant, as a result of His sacrifice.

Then, I explained that the teachings of Jesus, the Council of Jerusalem, and other New Testament teachings , (Romans 2:25-29, 8:1-4, 1 Corinthians 9:19-21, Galatians 2:15-16, Ephesians 2:15) make it clear that Christians are not required to follow the Old Testament rules about crimes and punishments, warfare, slavery, diet, circumcision, animal sacrifices, feast days, Sabbath observance, ritual cleanness, etc.

As Christians, we still look back to the Old Testament scripture for moral and spiritual guidance (2 Timothy 3:16-17). However, when there is a conflict between Old Testament laws and New Testament principles, Christians follow the New Testament because it represents the most recent and most perfect revelation from God.

So, the next time a Liberal gives you a bunch of garbage about Obamacare being the “Christian” thing to do, please set them straight, in a clear and gentle manner.

Then, feel free to quote them two of my favorite Bible verses:

1. “Judas went out and hung himself.”

2. “Go thou and do likewise.”

Because Christians aren’t perfect. Just forgiven. 🙂

The War Against Christianity: Of Lenin and Hobby Lobby

americanchristianflagsYesterday, thousands of Americans either went to, or shopped online at Hobby Lobby, a favorite store of my bride and mine, which has come under attack by the Obama Administration, because the owner, David Green, has taken a faith-based stand against being forced by the Obama administration to pay for drugs for his employees in their health care plan that may cause abortions.  Mr. Green recently stated his views very succinctly in the following letter:

When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were working out of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature picture frames. Our first retail store wasn’t much bigger than most people’s living rooms, but we had faith that we would succeed if we lived and worked according to God‘s word. From there, Hobby Lobby has become one of the nation’s largest arts and crafts retailers, with more than 500 locations in 41 states. Our children grew up into fine business leaders, and today we run Hobby Lobby together, as a family.

We’re Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles. I’ve always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our business in harmony with God’s laws, and (2) to focus on people more than money. And that’s what we’ve tried to do. We close early so our employees can see their families at night. We keep our stores closed on Sundays, one of the week’s biggest shopping days, so that our workers and their families can enjoy a day of rest. We believe that it is by God’s grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and he has blessed us and our employees. We’ve not only added jobs in a weak economy, we’ve raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time employees start at 80% above minimum wage.

But now, our government threatens to change all of that. A new government health care mandate says that our family business MUST provide what I believe are abortion-causing drugs as part of our health insurance. Being Christians, we don’t pay for drugs that might cause abortions, which means that we don’t cover emergency contraception, the morning-after pill or the week-after pill. We believe doing so might end a life after the moment of conception, something that is contrary to our most important beliefs. It goes against the Biblical principles on which we have run this company since day one. If we refuse to comply, we could face $1.3 million PER DAY in government fines.

Our government threatens to fine job creators in a bad economy. Our government threatens to fine a company that’s raised wages four years running. Our government threatens to fine a family for running its business according to its beliefs. It’s not right. I know people will say we ought to follow the rules; that it’s the same for everybody. But that’s not true. The government has exempted thousands of companies from this mandate, for reasons of convenience or cost. But it won’t exempt them for reasons of religious belief.

So, Hobby Lobby – and my family – are forced to make a choice. With great reluctance, we filed a lawsuit today, represented by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, asking a federal court to stop this mandate before it hurts our business. We don’t like to go running into court, but we no longer have a choice. We believe people are more important than the bottom line and that honoring God is more important than turning a profit.

My family has lived the American dream. We want to continue growing our company and providing great jobs for thousands of employees, but the government is going to make that much more difficult. The government is forcing us to choose between following our faith and following the law. I say that’s a choice no American – and no American business – should have to make.

Sincerely,

David Green, CEO and Founder of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

Now that you’ve heard from a great Christian American, read this excerpt from a paper by the Marxist Leader, Vladimir Lenin, titled “Socialism and Religion”…and shiver:

So far as the party of the socialist proletariat is concerned, religion is not a private affair. Our Party is an association of class-conscious, advanced fighters for the emancipation of the working class. Such an association cannot and must not be indifferent to lack of class-consciousness, ignorance or obscurantism in the shape of religious beliefs. We demand complete disestablishment of the Church so as to be able to combat the religious fog with purely ideological and solely ideological weapons, by means of our press and by word of mouth. But we founded our association, the Russian Social-Democratic Labour Party, precisely for such a struggle against every religious bamboozling of the workers. And to us the ideological struggle is not a private affair, but the affair of the whole Party, of the whole proletariat.

If that is so, why do we not declare in our Programme that we are atheists? Why do we not forbid Christians and other believers in God to join our Party?

The answer to this question will serve to explain the very important difference in the way the question of religion is presented by the bourgeois democrats and the Social-Democrats.

Our Programme is based entirely on the scientific, and moreover the materialist, world-outlook. An explanation of our Programme, therefore, necessarily includes an explanation of the true historical and economic roots of the religious fog. Our propaganda necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism; the publication of the appropriate scientific literature, which the autocratic feudal government has hitherto strictly forbidden and persecuted, must now form one of the fields of our Party work. We shall now probably have to follow the advice Engels once gave to the German Socialists: to translate and widely disseminate the literature of the eighteenth-century French Enlighteners and atheists.[1]

But under no circumstances ought we to fall into the error of posing the religious question in an abstract, idealistic fashion, as an “intellectual” question unconnected with the class struggle, as is not infrequently done by the radical-democrats from among the bourgeoisie. It would be stupid to think that, in a society based on the endless oppression and coarsening of the worker masses, religious prejudices could be dispelled by purely propaganda methods. It would be bourgeois narrow-mindedness to forget that the yoke of religion that weighs upon mankind is merely a product and reflection of the economic yoke within society. No number of pamphlets and no amount of preaching can enlighten the proletariat, if it is not enlightened by its own struggle against the dark forces of capitalism. Unity in this really revolutionary struggle of the oppressed class for the creation of a paradise on earth is more important to us than unity of proletarian opinion on paradise in heaven.

That is the reason why we do not and should not set forth our atheism in our Programme; that is why we do not and should not prohibit proletarians who still retain vestiges of their old prejudices from associating themselves with our Party. We shall always preach the scientific world-outlook, and it is essential for us to combat the inconsistency of various “Christians”. But that does not mean in the least that the religious question ought to be advanced to first place, where it does not belong at all; nor does it mean that we should allow the forces of the really revolutionary economic and political struggle to be split up on account of third-rate opinions or senseless ideas, rapidly losing all political importance, rapidly being swept out as rubbish by the very course of economic development.

Everywhere the reactionary bourgeoisie has concerned itself, and is now beginning to concern itself in Russia, with the fomenting of religious strife—in order thereby to divert the attention of the masses from the really important and fundamental economic and political problems, now being solved in practice by the all-Russian proletariat uniting in revolutionary struggle. This reactionary policy of splitting up the proletarian forces, which today manifests itself mainly in Black-Hundred pogroms, may tomorrow conceive some more subtle forms. We, at any rate, shall oppose it by calmly, consistently and patiently preaching proletarian solidarity and the scientific world-outlook—a preaching alien to any stirring up of secondary differences.

The revolutionary proletariat will succeed in making religion a really private affair, so far as the state is concerned. And in this political system, cleansed of medieval mildew, the proletariat will wage a broad and open struggle for the elimination of economic slavery, the true source of the religious humbugging of mankind.

Is the Obama Administration acting unconstitutionally? You betcha.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. – Amendment I, The Constitution of the United States

Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. – 1 Peter 2:16 ESV
