Gillibrand Tap Dances Around the Issues, Attacks Fox News at Their Townhall…Have the Dems Painted Themselves in a Corner?

The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so. – President Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

Things got heated at a Fox News town hall in Iowa Sunday when Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. used the platform to blame the network for allowing discussions of infanticide in debates about abortion and women’s reproductive rights.

When asked by a retired pediatric nurse named Susan about her stance on late-term abortions, Gillibrand pivoted to an attack on Fox News.

Gillibrand accused Fox of fueling what she called the infanticide “red herring” by devoting 6.5 hours of coverage to the debate, including comments from guests on the network.

“What we have created, unfortunately, is a false choice and a false narrative,” Gillibrand said of the climate surrounding the issue. “And Chris, I want to talk about the role that Fox News plays in this because it’s a problem. I can tell you before President Trump gave his State of the Union, Fox News talked about infanticide.”

“Infanticide doesn’t exist,” she said, at which point “Fox News Sunday” host and town hall moderator Chris Wallace cut her off.

“Senator, I just want to say, we’ve brought you here for an hour,” Wallace said. “We’ve treated you very fairly. I understand that maybe to make your credentials with the Democrats who are not appearing on Fox News you want to attack us. I’m not sure it’s frankly very polite when we’ve invited you to be here.”

Gillibrand, who is polling at around one percent according to most national and early voting state polls, has yet to secure the 65,000 individual donor campaign contributions necessary to qualify her for the late June and July primary debates and hoped to use her platform on Fox to bolster support.

“I’ll do it in a polite way,” Gillibrand countered.

“Instead of talking about Fox News why don’t you answer Susan’s question,” Wallace said redirecting the senator to her stance on late-term abortions.

Gillibrand, a fervent supporter of abortion rights, has previously vowed to only nominate federal court judges who support Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion across the nation. She repeated that position during Sunday night’s event at the University of Dubuque.

“Does that mean that you’re okay with other presidents having their own litmus tests?” Wallace asked her. “Maybe a pro-life president might say ‘I’ll only appoint people who will overturn Roe v Wade.’ Because the tradition in this country has been [the] independence of the judiciary and the idea that a judge, once appointed, will judge each case on its merits and not on the basis of a promise made, a political promise to get that position.”

“I think it’s changed. That’s the way it used to be before President Trump,” Gillibrand responded. “President Trump said he would only appoint judges that would overturn Roe v. Wade.”

“He already did and he’s doing it,” she said. “The rules have changed.”

Gillibrand also accused Republicans of creating a “false narrative” that doctors allow healthy babies to die after they are born in order to ease the passage of the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors” bill, legislation that would make it a felony for a doctor to harm or neglect a baby who survives an attempted abortion.

Gillibrand went on to say that President Trump “emboldened legislatures in over 30 states to begin to criminalize” a woman’s decision to have an abortion, state laws that have been challenged in courts across the nation because of their direct conflict with the precedent set by the Constitution.

The senator slammed a member of her own party, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, for signing a bill on Thursday that would prohibit women from having an abortion once a baby’s heartbeat is detected, in almost all cases. Gillibrand accused Edwards of “turning his back on Louisiana women by signing this shameful bill,” in a statement on Twitter Thursday.

Either senator Gillibrand has forgotten Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s comments from this past January or she wants US to forget them.

An Abortion Bill was presented to the Virginia State legislature by Democratic delegate Kathy Tran, the chief sponsor of the bill, who stated that her legislation would allow a woman to receive an abortion even while she was going into labor.

Per NationalReview.com, an interviewer on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor” asked Northam whether he supports the bill and asked him to explain Tran’s comment.

“This is why decisions such as this should be made by providers, physicians, and the mothers and fathers that are involved,” Northam said. “When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother, with the consent of the physician — more than one physician, by the way — and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities. There may be a fetus that’s non-viable.”

Northam is either unaware of the specifics of the bill, or he’s lying about them. Tran’s legislation explicitly removes the current requirement that three physicians agree that a woman is in need of a late-term abortion. The new bill would require only the consent of the mother and of the physician performing the abortion. But he went on to say something even more heinous.

“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” he continued. “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 the mother.”

From House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s ineffectual attempt at placating the young Social Justice Warriors at her conference appearance in California to Gillibrand’s imitation of Ginger Rogers on last night’s Fox News Townhall to Joe Biden’s imitation of the Invisible Man, the Democrats appear to have painted themselves into a corner.

The Democratic Party Hierarchy have been continuously “feeding the crocodile”, i.e. , the Far Left Young Socialists within their party who want Trump’s Impeachment, a Marxist Form of Government, and Infanticide and they want it NOW.

There is one problem with all of that.

The overwhelming majority of Americans do not want what they want.

And, if the Democrats succeed in the installation of any combination of the three, they will be shut out of winning the presidency for years to come.

Pelosi realizes that Trump cannot be impeached without a legitimate reason. She also knows that the Senate will not vote for impeachment even if the House votes for it.

She, along with her fellow Democratic Leaders, no matter what they may say publically, also realize that President Trump has brought back a vibrant American Economy and Job Market, purring along on the engines of capitalism.

“Democratic Socialism” will be a tough sell as a platform to run on.

Finally, average Americans want no part of killing babies.

That is why the Democrats have received such a huge negative reaction to the passage of the New York State Late Term Abortion Bill as well as Virginia’s Bill and Gov. Northam’s callous remarks.

So, where does that leave the Democrats and their aspiring Presidential Candidates, like Senate Gillibrand?

Evidently, it leaves them tap dancing around the truth.

It promises to be an entertaining, albeit futile, Democrat Primary Season.

Fred Astaire, they ain’t.

Northam Apologizes to Americans for Blackface Yearbook Photo…We’re Not Whom He Needs to Apologize to

Virginiagovernor'syearbookpagefeaturesmeninblackface,KKKrobe20190201220657.jpg_18417322_ver1.0_1280_720 (2)

Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. – Proverbs 16:18

FoxNews.com reports that

Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam apologized Friday for appearing in a “racist and offensive” photo on his 1984 medical school yearbook page that showed one man dressed in blackface and another in a KKK robe, while giving no indication he plans to resign. 
 
Northam – who has been under fire this week for comments made about a third-trimester abortion bill in his state – admitted to being one of the people in the photo, though it’s not clear which costume he is wearing.

“Earlier today, a website published a photograph of me from my 1984 medical school yearbook in a costume that is clearly racist and offensive,” Northam said in a statement.

He added, “I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now.”

Turning to Twitter on Friday night to speak directly with the public, he elaborated on his error in judgment, and on his apology for it, saying the photo doesn’t reflect the person he is today or how he’s conducted himself as a public servant.

In a video accompanying his tweet, he said, “I cannot change the decisions I made, nor can I undo the harm my behavior caused then and today.”

He said he was committed to continuing his work as governor and “living up to the expectations you set for me.”

Fox News obtained a copy of the 1984 yearbook page from the Eastern Virginia Medical School library. Northam graduated from the school that year. The Virginian-Pilot, the Washington Post and the Richmond Times-Dispatch also reported they independently confirmed the authenticity of the page.

The quote on the page says, “There are more old drunks than old doctors in this world so I think I’ll have another beer.”

Fox News obtained a copy of 1984 yearbook page from the Eastern Virginia Medical School library in Norfolk.

A growing number of both Republicans and Democrats on Friday evening said Northam should step down.

“Racism has no place in Virginia,” Republican Party of Virginia chairman Jack Wilson said in a statement. “These pictures are wholly inappropriate. If Gov. Northam appeared in blackface or dressed in a KKK robe, he should resign immediately.”

Derrick Johnson, the leader of the NAACP, also called for Northam’s resignation, as did Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro.

“If @RalphNortham is one of the two people pictured in the highly disturbing, horrific photo wearing either blackface or a KKK hood – or if he selected or approved of its use on his yearbook page — he should immediately resign,” the liberal MoveOn.org group tweeted. “There are no excuses for such a racist display.”

Northam did not respond to those calls. But in his statement, he said, “This behavior is not in keeping with who I am today and the values I have fought for throughout my career in the military, in medicine, and in public service.”

“I recognize that it will take time and serious effort to heal the damage this conduct has caused,” Northam said. “I am ready to do that important work. The first step is to offer my sincerest apology and to state my absolute commitment to living up to the expectations Virginians set for me when they elected me to be their governor.”

Earlier on Friday, a conservative website called Big League Politics first posted a photo of the yearbook page.

The White House took aim at Northam, referencing the attention Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s high school yearbook received during his brutal confirmation fight last year.

“This should be easier work than parsing every word and semicolon in the Kavanaugh yearbook,” White House adviser Kellyanne Conway tweeted Friday.

Ouch.

A few short days ago, Governor Northam was lecturing Americans on why abortion on the day of the baby’s birth was a “perfectly normal procedure” and not infanticide.

Because, after all, he was a Doctor…and a Liberal one at that…and a suuuper-genius.

Just ask him.

He was everything that the Old Guard Democrats and NeverTrumpers who proclaim themselves to be Republicans look for in a politician…smooth, smart, and RICH.

Plus, he believed all of the “correct” things to ensure his place in the hoi polloi, now known as “The Smartest People in the Room”.

Things like the “fact” that ethics and morality are for the “simple people” out there in Flyover Country still bitterly clinging to their guns and Bibles.

Such as those who still believe that the “clump of cells” growing in a woman’s body is a living breathing human body, whose life began at conception and whose spirit is no less divine than that of the woman whose womb the baby occupies.

Yes, sir. Governor Northam was riding high after his justification of full term abortion, which has been featured quite heavily on all of the cable news channels.

And then, his own personal Biblical Flood happened.

And, the admonition contained in Proverbs 16:18 once again rang true.

Liberal Hypocrisy, when it is revealed by God in such a magnificent way, is quite a sight to behold.

Just like the Emperor who wore no clothes, Governor Northam has been revealed for all to see.

Like I always say,

Isn’t it funny how those among us who claim to be the most tolerant are actually the least tolerant of all of us?

The Liberals of today’s Far Left Democratic Party have set themselves upplaced themselves, through their own arrogance, to be the “New Pharisees” of today’s secular culture, arbiters of morality and ethics, right and wrong.

And, as the Pharisees of old found out, they did not speak for God, either.

He is The One Whom Governor Northam should apologize to for a much bigger and more important offense than the wearing of blackface…

…the advocation of infanticide.

Until He Comes,

Gosnell, Peter Singer, and the Main Stream Media

fetus1The last few days, I have been writing about America’s Auschwitz, the Gosnell Case. As a Christian man, and the father of a special young lady, now in her 20s, I just could not wrap my head around the barbarism displayed by Gosnell and those in his profession, and the “good Nazi” mentality of the MSM and their fellow Liberals, who so blithely turn the other way to the unmitigated carnage, caused by these ‘doctors”.

Then, the name Peter Singer came to mind.

Peter Singer is an Australian philosopher and a visiting professor of bioethics at Princeton University. He also has worked as a lecturer at Oxford University, New York University, Monash University, the University of Colorado (Boulder), the University of California (Irvine), the University of Melbourne, and Princeton University’s Center for Human Values. Singer authored the 1975 book Animal Liberation, a landmark text that effectively launched the modern animal rights movement.

In his book, this lunatic claims that people should respect the moral worth of all animals…not on the basis of the animals’ intelligence, but instead, because of their ability to experience pain and suffering. He equates the denial of animals’ basic “rights” as a form of discrimination called “speciesism,” which he erroneously compares to racism and sexism.

According to Singer, it is wrong to value the life of human beings more than the lives of animals. Singer, an atheist, of course, rejects the scripture from Genesis that man has been given dominion over animals and that people are made uniquely in the image of God. He also believes that all animals have souls who are just as worthy of life. as ours’:

All three [of the foregoing axioms] taken together do have a very negative influence on the way in which we think about animals.

Singer goes on to explain that his mission is to challenge “this superiority of human beings”.

Singer, in 1979, wrote and published Practical Ethics, in which he continued his rant that animals are equal to human beings. He also states (hold on to something) that human parents should be legally permitted to kill a “severely disabled” infant up to 28 days after its birth if they deem the baby’s life unworthy of preservation.

According to this nutjob,

There are some circumstances…where the newborn baby is severely disabled and where the parents think that it’s better that that child should not live, when killing the newborn baby is not at all wrong.

Singer wrote an article for scotsman.com, in August of 2008. Here is an excerpt.

Abortion receives extensive coverage in developed countries, especially in the United States, where Republicans have used opposition to it to rally voters. But much less attention is given to the 86 per cent of all abortions that occur in the developing world. Although most countries in Africa and Latin America have laws prohibiting abortion in most circumstances, official bans do not prevent high abortion rates.

In Africa, there are 29 abortions per 1,000 women, and 32 per 1,000 in Latin America. The comparable figure for Western Europe, where abortion is generally permitted in most circumstances, is 12. According to a recent report by the World Health Organisation, unsafe abortions lead to the death of 47,000 women a year, almost all of them in developing countries. Restricting access to legal abortion leads many poor women to seek abortion from unsafe providers. The legalisation of abortion on request in South Africa in 1998 saw abortion-related deaths drop by 91 per cent. And the development of the drugs misoprostol and mifepristone, which can be provided by pharmacists, makes relatively safe and inexpensive abortion possible in developing countries.

Opponents will respond that abortion is, by its very nature, unsafe – for the foetus. They point out that abortion kills a unique, living human individual. That claim is difficult to deny, at least if by “human” we mean “member of the species Homo sapiens.”

It is also true that we cannot simply invoke a woman’s “right to choose” in order to avoid the ethical issue of the moral status of the foetus. If the foetus really did have the moral status of any other human being, it would be difficult to argue that a pregnant woman’s right to choose includes the right to bring about the death of the foetus, except perhaps when the woman’s life is at stake.

The fallacy in the anti-abortion argument lies in the shift from the scientifically accurate claim that the foetus is a living individual of the species Homo sapiens to the ethical claim that the foetus therefore has the same right to life as any other human being. Membership of the species Homo sapiens is not enough to confer a right to life.

We can plausibly argue that we ought not to kill, against their will, self-aware beings who want to continue to live. We can see this as a violation of their autonomy, or a thwarting of their preferences. But why should a being’s potential to become rationally self-aware make it wrong to end its life before it has the capacity for rationality or self-awareness?

We have no obligation to allow every being with the potential to become a rational being to realise that potential. If it comes to a clash between the supposed interests of potentially rational but not yet conscious beings and the vital interests of actually rational women, we should give preference to the women every time.

I know that I will be called a “‘Christianist’ Right Wing Reactionary Idiot”, by any Liberal, who happens to read this. But, frankly, Scarlett…well, you know.

I find it sadly fascinating that the Main Stream Media had to be forced by those of us in the New Media, to cover the Gosnell Case. They wanted, as sworn members of the Obama Propaganda Corps (pronounced “corpse”) to ignore Gosnell and his butchery, because it did not fit the safe, antiseptic version of the abortion procedure, which they have been pushing since before Roe vs. Wade.

What they have been slapped in the face with is a harsh reality. The Gosnell Case is one of American Infanticide. There is nothing that they can do to defend it.

I find it horrifying that there are Americans, who believe as Singer does, that we are no better than the toad in our front yard. Therefore, it is perfectly acceptable to “get rid” of us, while we are defenseless, in the same manner that an animal shelter gasses its unwanted animals.

Mankind wase given dominion over the animals. We Are different. Within each of us is that Divine Spark”, which eternally links us to the Creator. As King David said,

For Thou didst form my inward parts; Thou didst weave me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Thy works, And my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from Thee, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth. Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Thy book they were all written, The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. (Psalm 139:13-16)

Take time this Sunday to pray for our nation. God shall not be mocked.

Until He Comes,

The Gosnell Case: American Infanticide

babyreachingforhandfromwomb2[Where am I? This is April…not September.  What are all these bright lights? What’s that smell? I don’t understand. I was inside my mother, sucking my thumb, all nice and safe and warm. The next thing I know, I feel this pressure on either side of my head, and I was ripped out of my mother.

Why is this happening to me? I have a whole life ahead of me.

I deserve a Mother and a Father. I will never have those. Grandparents, either. Heck, I won’t even get to know my cousins.

I want to know what milk tastes like. I want to hold a Cheerio in my hand and put it in my mouth.  I want to know what it’s like to get my first tooth…to take my first step….to hear music for the first time. I want to hold a puppy. I want to have a first day in school. I want to have a best friend.  I want to ride a bike. I want to have a best friend and go out to play with them. I want to know what Christmas is all about. I want to eat a turkey leg at Thanksgiving…and to see a fireworks display on the 4th of July.  I want to wear costumes on Halloween. I want to go to ballgames with my Father. 

I want to watch cartoons. I want to love and be loved.

I want to fall in love. I want to experience my first kiss. I want to have my parents drop me and my date off at the movie and then pick us up. I want to play sports in school…or be an artist…or be a musician…or, just be a kid. 

I want to go to a pep rally. I want to dance at a prom. I want to get a report card. Heck, I want to taste a school lunch.

I want to graduate and go to college. I want to start work…and have a family. 

I want to live!

Wait! What are you doing with those scissors! Don’t…]

On January 19, 2011, a Grand Jury released findings of its investigation into criminal wrongdoing at the Women’s Medical Society, a clinic operated in West Philadelphia, at 38th Street and Lancaster Avenue by Kermit B. Gosnell, M.D. The investigation was launched after drug agents raided the clinic and learned of the death of an abortion patient who suffered cardiac arrest after Gosnell’s employees gave her lethal doses of narcotics.

Gosnell staffed his decrepit and unsanitary clinic entirely with unlicensed personnel, let them practice medicine on unsuspecting patients, unsupervised, and directed them to heavily drug patients in his absence. In addition, he regularly performed abortions beyond the 24-week limit prescribed by law. As a result, viable babies were born. Gosnell killed them by plunging scissors into their spinal cords. He taught his staff to do the same.

The Grand Jury issued a presentment recommending criminal charges against Gosnell and his employees, including charges of murder against Kermit Gosnell, Lynda Williams, Adrienne Moton, and Steven Massof for killing viable babies born alive at the clinic, and charges of conspiracy to commit murder against these persons and Sherry West. Gosnell will also be charged with infanticide and performing illegal late-term abortions. Charged as coconspirators are Williams, West, and Pearl Gosnell, his wife.

With respect to the death of Karnamaya Mongar, Kermit Gosnell, Lynda Williams, and Sherry West are charged with third-degree murder, drug delivery resulting in death, drug violations, and conspiracy. Gosnell operated a corrupt criminal enterprise, for which the Grand Jury recommended racketeering charges against Kermit Gosnell, Lynda Williams, Sherry West, Adrienne Moton, Maddline Joe, Tina Baldwin, Pearl Gosnell, Steven Massof, and Eileen O’Neill. Massof and O’Neill, who pretended to be doctors, will be charged with theft by deception and conspiracy, with Gosnell, to deceive patients. Gosnell and Massof are also charged with conspiracy and drug violations for illegally dispensing narcotics.

The trial of abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell has begun. Yesterday,  a second woman from Delaware, who worked at the West Philadelphia abortion clinic, told the court yesterday that it was “standard procedure” to snip the necks of any babies who were delivered by patients before the abortion as a result of the labor-inducing drugs they took during the “procedure”.

According to Lynda Williams, 44, of Wilmington, Gosnell showed her how to flip the body of the baby over and snip its neck with a pair of scissors to ensure “fetal demise.”

The woman also offered testimony that, even when Gosnell was away frm that clinic, either running, swimming or working at a clinic in Delaware, she did as he showed her, taking a baby who was delivered in a toilet and coldly and without remorse, snipped its neck.

She then showed the jury how the baby jumped at having its neck snipped, by raising her arm.

Per Williams, she only snipped a neck the one time, “because it gave me the creeps.”

She explained to the jurors,

I only do what I’m told to do. What I was told to do was snip their neck.

Dr. Gosnell did not react to the testimony. He just calmly watched and occasionally took notes with a vague hint of a smile on his face from time to time.

All of the nurses and assistants who will testify in this trial will probably use what is known as the Nuremberg Defense:

I was just following orders.

Held for the purpose of bringing Nazi war criminals to justice, the Nuremberg trials were a series of 13 trials carried out in Nuremberg, Germany, between 1945 and 1949. The defendants, who included Nazi Party officials and high-ranking military officers along with German industrialists, lawyers and doctors, were indicted on such charges as crimes against peace and crimes against humanity. Nazi leader Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) committed suicide and was never brought to trial. Although the legal justifications for the trials and their procedural innovations were controversial at the time, the Nuremberg trials are now regarded as a milestone toward the establishment of a permanent international court, and an important precedent for dealing with later instances of genocide and other crimes against humanity.

How is the mass murder of these innocent American lives  any different than the “Final Solution” of the Nazis, which sent 6 million Jews and 5 million gypsies to the gas chambers? 

I know that there are some of you that read my blog that are non-believers.  For you and for my Christian brothers and sisters, I offer the following closing thoughts: 

There is a curious unique enzyme found in the human body.   Laminin is defined by the Webster Medical Dictionary as a “glycoprotein that is a component of connective tissue basement membrane and that promotes cell adhesion.”  In other words,a glue within the body.

Colossians 1:15-17 tells us:

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

I believe that our nation and our leaders should realize that you cannot mock God. With actions come consequences. You know, that “cause and effect” thingy that “the Smart people” are so found of bringing up.

Each and every life is precious to The Creator. That baby growing in her womb, is not the property of the mother. Each and every one of us belong to the One who made us. He is our Sovereign Lord.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you…

All those who believe that “it is a woman’s right to choose”…think too highly of themselves.

For every life is a Gift from The Creator to be loved and cherished, as He first loved us.

And, this country, like every other country on the face of this Earth, sits under His judgement.

Until He Comes,
